GUEST COLUMN: What has happened To America?
Its a rare occasion when we have a president or any politician willing to stand up for our founding principles, national security or the people. We are living in a rare time in American history because we have such a president in Donald Trump.
Throughout his campaign, at his inauguration, on foreign soil and in his TV appearances or rallies, his message is the same: America first. However, instead of getting behind our president and his policies to support the continued growth and prosperity of our nation, those elected to represent us have chosen to sabotage our republic and to shred our Constitution.
All of their energy and efforts are fueled by hate, and their misguided progressive socialist doctrine. They are willing to cause the demise of the American dream by any means necessary. They are so hell-bent on destroying a man and our founding principles that they are willing to hand over everything, even their souls, to achieve their goal.
They have demonstrated this over and over, by thought, word and deed. Their leaders are morally and spiritually bankrupt. They have chosen to eliminate our future generations through abortion, and want open borders so that bands of illegal persons can invade our country and suck our resources dry. Not to mention that they will be used as a new block of voters that can be controlled by big government handouts.
It makes one wonder what drives their heart and minds. Why do they want to eliminate the greatest nation on earth? We must conclude that it is evil. They are not willing to compromise, unify or do what is best for the good of America. They only seek revenge, money, and power.
How did America come to be in such a state? Where did we go wrong? These are questions we must consider.
Even those who are supposed to represent the poor and under-privileged have turned a deaf ear and are corrupt. New scandals are revealed on a daily basis. When will it end?
America is at a crossroads. It’s time for us to take a stand, or we will lose our republic. A nation without God is a nation without hope and a divine purpose. Only evil can proceed from its leaders. That nation will fail.
It’s time for us to restore, revive and realign our principles. It’s time for us to “Keep America Great” because by doing so we give the rest of the world hope. If we allow the beacon of freedom and liberty to burn out, we will no longer allow the world or our future generations to have hope.
It’s time for us to bring our hearts toward home. We are better than this.
