America used to be popular, not only for its respect for individuals, its Constitution but more so for its status as a superpower nation.
“Traditional American values are worthy of a passionate defense,” author and TV commentator Monica Crowley said. Charles Murray, the author of Coming Apart, referred to the said values as “the American project,” defining it as a continuing effort to demonstrate that humans can be free as individuals and families living as they see fit while collectively solve their joint problems.
Yet, all the American values and pride seem to be vanishing. As the new year begins, America seems to have evolved entirely different – for the worse. It began when Barack Obama lived in the White House. Along with his minions, the former president introduced new concepts that have shattered our values – democratic socialism, social justice, identity politics, inclusion, diversity, Critical Race Theory, political correctness, and cancel culture.
Abraham Lincoln once said, “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
In 1961, Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev echoed Lincoln. “We do not have to destroy America with missiles. America will destroy itself from within.”
Have they seen it coming?
Political debates became a prelude to civil war as progressives’ thrashed the conservatives’ viewpoints. Likewise, citizens have lost confidence in the elected representatives, the media, the legal system, or each other.
Further, public officials have shown disrespect for the laws they have sworn to defend. Cities became like war-torn metropolis as riots, looting, and arson became rampant due to the mayors’ and governors’ nonexistent civil order.
The government has turned blind from its true purpose. And what has Congress accomplished in the last four years aside from impeaching a working president and sending taxpayer’s hard-earned money to countries who call us names? Surely, we have become a global laughingstock.
Then comes the coronavirus that the government used as an excuse over and over as they gradually take control of our lives. And its worst failure is the recent election’s lack of integrity.
A 2019 report by the Electoral Integrity Project stated that US elections starting July 2012 to December 2018 rated “lower than any other long-established democracies and affluent societies.”
The study should’ve been enough for the Americans to demand improvement.
However, the 2020 presidential election brought an even more downturn. A thousand affidavits that attest to massive voter fraud, along with other irregularities and illegalities, still aren’t enough to overturn the result.
“People are going on the record under oath and risking being canceled, doxed, and even accosted, to tell what they have seen about this election process,” Rep. Michael Cloud said, adding that the apparent lack of action from the DOJ is troubling.
Add the media to the snob justice system, and we certainly are doomed to fail.
