We Are America
By J.C. Anger
“We hold the truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among them are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.,,, That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it” ~ Declaration of Independence
Such a time as we see today we have not seen since the Civil Rights era. People use class and race in order to separate people and cause friction of one group against another. The people who use these tactics the most are those who are in power in our government today or have a voice in the media. They scream at the top of their lungs “Racism!” Yet within their own rant, the seeds of the very thing they claim to abhor, is the very thing they are embracing.
For years I have heard the argument that we need to embrace the differences contained in people. Those who are so-called experts have said that it will be through our differences that we can truly come together in peace. I have one question for those people, “When was the last time you saw a war when people realized they had things in common?” Every war that I have seen throughout history has been a war that has been fought because people had physical or ideological differences and recognized these differences.
Thus the political drama we face today. We have those so-called “Civil Rights Experts” or the so-called “Economically Deprived Experts” coming out and claiming that there are certain people who are either racist or heartless based on their political ideology and personal values. The experts have attacked people like the Tea Party movement, Herman Cain, and Allen West claiming that they were anti-whatever, when in actuality they are only being for America. These very experts have a disdain for the free-market system that has made this nation the greatest nation in the world, and they would love nothing more than to see this nation collapse on itself in order to take claim for their own greatness. Let’s take a look at what they see as the root problem.
First they have attacked female Conservatives. Since they could not control them they tried to vilify them. They called them every name under the sun, while they got a free pass since they are Liberals and Liberals can’t be sexist, racist, or against the poor. They have a free pass to bash anyone they want and no one can speak up against them because if they do they will be labeled sexist, racist, or heartless. What they actually are fighting is the fact that these great Conservative women are thinking for themselves and realizing that the Liberals are doing nothing but demoralizing their position in this world by misrepresenting what women truly believe in. Just ask my wife who is a very impressive Conservative woman and she’ll tell you that the Liberals do not and will not ever represent her.
Next is the minority Conservative. The fact that Mr. Herman Cain is the front runner for the Republican Nomination for President of the United States of America has Liberals beside themselves on how to demonize this man for going against what they believe a “good black man” should do. How dare a black man step out of line and think for himself and form his own ideas of what makes this nation great. How dare a black man steps out of line and becomes a success and then decides to run against their party for President. They feel Mr. Cain should get back in line and not ruffle the feathers of the status quo. They do not want to see this because it removes their ability to call all Conservatives racist. Herman Cain is breaking ground and making history like no other person this nation has ever seen. Not because of the color of his skin, but truly the content of his character and the beliefs and values he holds in his heart. The only thing the Liberals have left is to call him names and hope they stick.
The next thing is the biggest problem the Liberals face. It is the very reason their name calling cannot stick to the women or minority Conservative. This problem is the colorblind voter. That’s right it’s truly not about race over on the Conservative side, it is truly about the values we share and the direction we feel the nation needs to go. The Liberals will call Conservatives racist all day long, but the problem is that it has never been about race. We all share the commonality that we are all Americans. We want to see this nation succeed and we wont vote based on what we see, but we will vote on what we know. We are every race. We are man and woman. We are young and old. We have a value system that is grounded in our belief of God, self, and the greatest nation in the world.
You see this use of name calling is a distraction and fear tactic. It does not bring us to anger because we know the truth and we know the truth will be revealed. Time and time again, we have seen the people of this nation coming together for common goods not based on differences, but based on our commonalities.
