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.
Our 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 what is good, morally justifiable, and worth protecting at any cost.
We drew the battle lines between far left and far right in 2020. Republicans were threatened with socialism. Democrats scared their base with white supremacy. In the wake of a disputed election another unprecedented event, the storming of the Capitol, fed the Democratic propaganda machine and gave the party an excuse to militarize Washington and start to reimagine the First Amendment.
The American people no longer have the power to decide what we value or even if the vision of the Founding Fathers is worth keeping. That power is now in the hands of Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and the Democratic Party. If party leaders decide wrong the ideals and values that turned us into the world's preeminent moral and economic leader may disappear forever.
President Biden racked up an impressive list of accomplishments in just 40 days. He proved he can destroy some of the great things about America without any help from Congress. All it takes is a pen and someone to tell him where to sign.
If you’ve been feeling a bit contemptable lately you’re in good company. The Democrat Party hates your guts and is not the least bit shy about proving it.
There are many reasons Democrats hate conservatives like you and me, but these six are absolute standouts and our February 14, 2021 update makes it seven.
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.
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.
