A mere few hours from now, 2015 will be safely behind me, never to be experienced again, thank the merciful Maker for that! 2015 was a rather challenging year for me, but I won’t go into detail at the risk of boring you to tears. Suffice it to say, if hard times teach us lessons, I am working on my Doctorates in the School of Hard Knocks. I will add, however, that my time was not squandered in self pity and anxiety. I learned a lot about myself in 2015 that gave me strength and confidence to forge ahead in my goal to help you, the reader, to understand that we can restore this great nation one person at a time.
This Nation was built on hard times. From the Pilgrim’s first winter, to the Revolution, to the Civil war, to the Great Depression and two World Wars, we have not only endured hard times, but steeled ourselves against them to go into the future more industrious and intelligent. That is why America is an exceptional nation. We do not fold, we do not give up. We fight, and this is what I also must do as your fellow countryman.
But who is our enemy? Where is the foe that threatens our sovereignty and freedom? Therein lays the problem. This is not a battle we can fight with bullets and fists. If it were that simple, I would have every confidence that we could overcome in a timely manner and return to the American dream. No, this is a battle of idealisms run amok. The battlefield on which we fight is the battlefield of the mind, and quite truthfully, we’ve never been more ill-prepared in the history of our nation.
Oh, our enemy is not new. We’ve fought this battle several times in our nation’s young history. As recently as the 1930s and 40s, communism had solid roots in several political offices in our nation, sometimes under the guise of the Democratic Party. Much like today’s Socialist ideology, 1930s Communist party wished to squelch the “far right ideology” of capitalism, individualism, and American exceptionalism. In that day, the rise of the Third Reich and the ensuing World War woke the average American up to the reality of Communisms pitfall of creating economic squalor and totalitarian rule. The enemy we face today is not unlike that very same red-faced devil that promised to “bury our children”. However, somewhere along the way, a large portion of our nation has been persuaded to embrace this Socialist demon with open arms and without questioning its dubious history. (We will discuss HOW this happened in a later blog). Many are now condemning the very ideas that gave them the freedom to spew their venomous perversions for the mainstream media to dote on.
How do we even begin to combat this Socialist idealism, especially when it now comes from our Nation’s highest office? First and foremost, be aware that it is around us and often uses the aliases such as “Social Justice” or “Fundamental Transformation” among other pleasant sounding titles. Look for groups that redefine common words in order to turn them against and shame the average citizen. Do NOT buy into the thinking that you must pay for the wrongdoings of your ancestors. Refuse to be shamed for who you are or how you were born. If you trace the history of these “Socialist weapons”, you will see that they are nothing new. Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, and other tyrants used similar methods to control the populace. This movement is n0 different. It is about controlling the “little people”….and you are the “little people”.
“Know thy enemy”
If you’re going to be a warrior on the battleground of the mind, you must develop your greatest weapon. This is the hard part. It takes a commitment to expand your thoughts, study the writings of our Nation’s founding fathers, and yes, study the tyrants of our history. Learn their techniques and downfalls. Only then will your greatest weapon, your mind, be ready for battle. Resolve to strengthen yourself in 2016!
We are fighting a short-sighted ideology that will inevitably destroy our economy, rob our freedom, and leave nothing for our children but third world conditions. Stay positive! The fight is ours to win!
