A much less perfect union

A recent Wilmington StarNews editorial titled, “Striving to form a more perfect union” expresses typical partisanship, ignores the reasons for American cultural disunity and seems oblivious of the radical national political changes threatening to overthrow our system of government. (Link below)

The Editorial Board describes Congress as “dysfunctional,” and with “rancor” in our House of Representatives. They imply that Republicans cause the “discord.” “How,” they write, “can we be the United States of America if we now refer to each other as the enemy?”

How, indeed? I don’t recall any Republicans calling others “the enemy,” (except Islamic terrorists and foreign invaders) but I remember that our current president has used that language aimed at those who oppose his socialist policies and tactics—and disdainfully referred to Americans as “clinging to their Bibles and guns.”

It’s important to know that in the 240 year history of American government, we’ve never had a president raised by Marxist parents, schooled in Islamic ideology in foreign lands, with virtually no records of his life history available, not vetted by the American press, who clearly hates America and is trying to “fundamentally” change it to third-world status. His election was based solely on personality–a journalist called him a “magic Negro.”

The Editorial Board is not surprised that we have “political polarization” in America. But instead of acknowledging the real reasons for our discontent they divert attention to our elected representatives—that represent the way we feel—to get “back to some sort of collegiality” and “get the House in order.”

Adding to the disunity they abhor the Board says, “We don’t agree with all of (House leader) Ryan’s policy ideas.” Clearly they will not support the conservative leaders and members of Congress that could help to bring our country back to more normal and sane times. (Only 7 percent of the American press identifies politically with Republicans.)

StarNews Editorial Board members say that “an average citizen can make a difference in how our country is run.” They write, “Make enough noise on the right issue and you might (sic) get your U. S. Rep to follow.”

But that political propaganda is thwarted by the noisy factions following Obama’s community organizing tactics to disrupt and overthrow our law and order republic—the wrong issue if we want a unified country. The Democrat Party is now dominated by socialists and other radicals who want to discard our Constitution, destroy capitalism and purge our cultural history.

Under these conditions we who value a stable, traditional culture and economy can never “work together” with those who will subvert and destroy them.

That’s why we have come to this point; our political leaders for decades have been working together to undermine the foundations of the republic and change it to a monstrous fascist system we cannot abide—that is the most imperfect union we can imagine. And, I for one intend to fight against it for as long as I can.
