The battle for what America values isn’t about America and it certainly isn’t about we the people. Even Biden voters probably understand this. The war over what we believe is fought for the benefit of two political parties. We vote for one or the other and the victor decides what’s important for the party first and the American people last.
American Ideals and Values
The American Ideals and Values category includes posts on freedom and liberty, equality and rights, the battle between liberals and conservatives and most important, what it means to be American.
Contemporary American ideals and values are defined as much by the mass media as politics. What happens in Washington, state legislatures, and in our cities is moderated online with the power to undermine, re-imagine, and destroy our fundamental beliefs about the American values that are what is good, right, and worth protecting.
The transition from Obama to Trump stirred up unprecedented anger after an unexpected Democratic election loss. That acrimony exploded in 2020 thanks to an unprecedented pandemic, violent liberal protests over racial and economic injustice, questions about the sanctity of our elections, and now the future of the Supreme Court after the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
This year more than ever the battle lines are drawn. The American people will decide if the government should dictate what we value and how much wealth we are entitled to keep, or if the vision of the Founding Fathers should be preserved. If we decide wrong, the ideals and values that turned us into the preeminent world moral and economic leader may be gone for good.
I received an invitation from my local library to hear a professor talk about how our new president will bridge the divide in our polarized nation. Like COVID-19, there’s a lot of this going around. The Biden presidency is just weeks away.
After four years of warnings about attacks to our democracy we finally know where the real threat comes from. It’s not the allegedly fraud-riddled 2020 Election. That was only a preview. American values face a vicious progressive reckoning they can’t possibly survive if Democrats make good on their vows to create a just, equitable, and ultimately valueless society.
It’s unimaginable to think that Americans are so naïve that we decided to trust everything we value to the oligarchy of Democratic elites who are about to take over Washington. The democracy they swear to protect is not an excuse to target and oppress those who question party mandates, but liberal exclusivity and intolerance split our nation cleanly down the middle.
In recent weeks we’ve watched elderly people abused, homeowners harassed by protesters, burning buildings, and looting justified by radical left activists who justify theft as compensation for the hurts of the past and a fundamentally unfair economy.
Democrats are all but silent about what they created.
How could any American send a Tweet implying that they wish our president was dead? That’s how far we have descended into liberal political amorality. #wrongTrump and a man beaten in the streets of Portland define the place where Democrats brought us as their convention got underway.
If voters hand a Joe Biden win to Democrats don’t look to the Supreme Court to protect your rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Your three inalienable rights are not in the Constitution. There is no guarantee anywhere that they won’t disappear after the election.
