Values of Republican Government Fading?
We are losing our history, culture and traditions.
We watch this daily, it seems, as the value of “Sharia” law – an intolerant system, is held out as an icon of intercultural tolerance. Sacrificed is freedom of religion and speech, when Americans are in jail because they made a politically incorrect and definitely “Sharia condemned” movies. Daily we see a moral equivalency trumpeted from the highest peaks and mountains of media, corrupted by its “ends justify the means” philosophy.
What’s this all do for us? American culture is further driven from its roots in Western civilization. It is taken farther from the “Rights of Man”, and in its place is the convenience of “whatever it takes” philosophy of government. That means undermine democracy by suppressing information that is inconvenient to the “party line.”
It means growing ignorance also of what exactly is at stake: The Republican form of government.
Can we do our part to assure that as Lincoln put it at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania on November 19, 1863 “government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth”? Make no mistake, we too are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether this or any nation can make it fact.
We need desperately a press to inform, schools that educate, and leadership that can take that and RENEW the vision of this republic’s citizens. Presently we see it saddled with too many who are ignorant of how our system works, and ignorance of both our rights as citizens, and therefore failure to recognize when basic rights trampled by a growing large state.
This is a call to our young conservatives who love the Republic: Get into education and the media, counter what has built up over the past 40 years. And where ever possible, make known the values and principles of our fathers.
