Yet, we still have republican candidates saying that they are best able to "cross the aisle" to get things done.
Seems to me they lost touch with the concept of three branches of government, as much as the left has, but more as the subordinate statesmen.
So when did this all start? I bet it was around the time that "progressive" ideology took root in our institutions of higher learning. What once were halls of self-expression and knowledge are now the corridors of conformity and indoctrination. No longer are those bastions of learning producing free thinking individuals prepared for life beyond those walls. They are in fact doing everything in their power to temper personal responsibility and free thought.
When once lively debates where common place, now those in power opt to squelch any thought that they deem objectionable- of course that means anything right of center politically and anything having to do with Christian values. Those who hold beliefs that are not shared by the majority are chastised and threatened. Any attempt at debate causes the indoctrinated bullet point spewing progressives to scurry to their 'safe space' like cockroaches fleeing from the light.
It all comes from the real cockroaches who carry the disease of progressivism. A word adopted by the left, but which is only a synonym for socialism. Even the head of the dnc can't tell the difference between a democrat and a socialist. Even within those walls the dnc can only stand for deceit, negligence and corruption.
With the aid of the socialist controlled media we have experienced the drip, drip, drip of progressive ideology into our every day lives and the body politic. Water torture would be more humane.
The progressives tout what is "fair" and the way things "should be". All the while lying as to the reality of what the transformation involves and what the outcome is. No, that pupa won't be a butterfly, or even a moth, but a destructive boring beetle eating away at the very foundation of what makes the United States the great Nation it is, until its ultimate collapse. It will be too late when the pupa matures.
And as with many destructive insects, the progressives leave space for other destructive ideologies. The most destructive today is the introduction of radical islam.
Dr. Savage dedicates a chapter in his latest best seller "Government Zero" to this phenomenon, which is titled "The Progressive-Islamist Takeover". If you haven't read Dr. Savage's book, you need to.
The proof is in every public school, right down to the lowest grades. The progressives have introduced the doctrines of islam as factual history, forcing children to memorize its cannons, the same way that progressives have used the public school system to turn children into American self haters.
Why would US public schools be using history texts written by socialists, with anti-American slants, if not for that very purpose?
Why would a president, the leader of the "free world", go around and apologize to other countries for the success of the US?
Hint- it's not because they love the Country that affords them the opportunity to rise to the highest level an individual can attain.
And in the end progressivism, or socialism, will fail. Socialism fails every time it is tried, socialism failed yesterday, socialism is failing right now, and socialism will fail tomorrow.
And in its wake, socialism, or progressivism, will leave the dead bodies of those who believed it was the answer and the poor will be poorer and the rich will be richer and there will be no in-between.
Our Fore Fathers saw a way to prevent that destructive beetle from doing the ultimate damage- three branches of government, equal but separate.
That is why open debate on all items, even those agreed upon, needs to happen. Open debate pushes for the justification of the agenda to be set forth.
The rinos appear to fear loud public critique, though most often the loudest critique doesn't represent the majority, thanks to the socialist media.
The progressives fear the debate because they cannot justify thier socialist agenda with facts. That is why they accuse those who oppose their destructive policies of being racist, misogynistic, sexist etc., school yard name calling brought to the legislature floor. They cannot defend on substance so they attack on an imaginary characterization of those who oppose them. Or they simply lie.
In essence, we the people, should be able to fair this storm regardless of who is named POTUS, if those we elect to other offices accept the responsibility of that office as it was meant to be.
The only thing that we, the people, need to do beyond that is to accept personal responsibility for our lives and the decisions we make. I know it's a tall order, and it is certainly not the easy way, but it is the only way.
You see, every time you ask the government to step in, it steps on. Whatever infraction or event you feel should be handled by the government and hence request its intervention, you are thus forfeiting your freedoms.
Like asking Paul Bunyan to to pick a strawberry from the middle of the patch, you loose far more than you will ever gain.
