My Newswithviews Column, July 2 (‘We Want Our Country Back’)

See the source image

The year’s only halfway over, and we’ve already had enough “mandates” loaded onto us to last another 50 years.

We Want Our Country Back

Since when are we governed by mandates? Don’t we do laws anymore? Democrats gabble about “the rule of law,” even as they drive one nail after another into its coffin.

Why aren’t we madder about this?

Why are we letting it happen?

But you can be sure of one thing: the wretched mess that is the year 2020 so far would not be possible, probably not even imaginable, if we hadn’t spent several decades having our children “educated” by wicked fools who hate our country.

    You ask, “Why aren’t we madder about this?” Well, if I were any angrier, my blood pressure monitor would explode and the top of my head would blow off. But what can we do? Vote the rascals out? That just leaves room for the next batch of rascals to move in. Besides, as you point out, we’re being “mandated” into slavery by unelected bureaucrats anyway. Spread the word? We get banned on social media and forbidden to talk to each other except through masks from six feet apart, even when we aren’t locked up in our own homes.Or we get fired. Or expelled from school. Or attacked by mobs….

    As far as I can see, all I can do is refuse to be converted to their side. I will not call evil good or good evil.

      According to Theodore Dalrymple, it’s one of the favorite tactics of communism to force people to say things that they know are not true. It erodes their self-respect and makes resistance to The Program more difficult.

      Remember Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

    And this is only one of the problems. II Chronicle 7:14 gives us the real answer.
    Yes, the school system is to blame for a lot of wickedness, in fact, the whole world that is presently ruled by the “god of this world” until his time comes to an end and he is banished to the burning lake. God’s people are the only ones who can make a dent in this garbage.

    The moral character of the U.S. as a whole, has diminished drastically. D’Toqueville said that America’s greatness was in her goodness and that if America loses its goodness, it will lose its greatness. He was dead on. Frankly, I’m not optimistic, at this point.

    Vote Biden in and we can wear masks the rest of our lives. The Silent Majority, the Tea Party, and the Trumpsters had better turn out in droves in November.
