Gut Check Time

It's no longer 'Morning in America' – it's midnight.

When a people transition from being revolutionaries into a nation – and, eventually, the most powerful nation in the history of the world – know that did not happen without a lot of self-reflection and contemplation.


The chief question to reflect on now is the same one from 248 years ago – who are we as a people?


248 years ago, it was colonists yearning for emancipation from the throne of England. Today – it's not altogether clear what is being yearned for.


In 1776, there were some colonists who were strongly opposed to any idea of independence from King George. They lost the battle, and George lost his New World colonies.


Today, what the Founding Fathers fought so hard for is in need of self-examination, again. And this may perhaps be the final time such a grace moment is extended.

The states are not united. What separates them are worldviews that cannot occupy the same place at the same time. Much like the clashing worldviews of the English monarchy and the colonists – something's gotta give.

As the federal bureaucracy has grown into such a terrifying monstrosity, diametrically opposed to any idea the Founders held, whichever party (or more precisely, worldview) holds power in DC begins to crush the opposing worldview in whatever states hold it.


Communist-Democrats hold massive power in DC, and have used that power in conjunction with other institutions to impose their will on more "conservative" states and those states' worldview of an original understanding of the US Constitution, which enshrines our rights as coming from God – not the State


And other states that culturally profit from DC being controlled by a Communist worldview support the encroachment on other states, and cheer the imposition of their worldview on states that reject it.


CIVIL, NOT REVOLUTIONARY, WAR


We, as a nation, are moving dangerously close to the paradigm of not a revolutionary war, but a civil war. Culturally speaking, a very good argument can be made that we are already in a cold war of sorts.


As Abraham Lincoln's often-quoted line from his debate with Sen. Stephen A. Douglas goes, this nation "will become all one thing, or all the other."


The phrase conjures up for us discussions being had in local watering holes all over the colonies prior to the War of Independence. We will either be colonies subject to the crown, or we will be free. We can't be BOTH.


Lincoln's speech was talking about slavery. A nation of states supposedly united could not both support and outlaw slavery.


And now on this 4th of July, 2024 – we are at the crossroads of self-examination again.

We cannot be both pro-Communism and anti-Communism. We cannot be both practical atheists and a nation of religionists.

We cannot hold one worldview which invests man's dignity and worth in the State, and an opposing view which announces that Man's dignity (and therefore the State's obligation to uphold it) comes from being created in the Image and Likeness of God.


Emblazoned across our money is the proclamation "In God We Trust."


Scattered across the entire legal landscape is the undercurrent that defendants have rights because they are made in God's image.


The Ten Commandments cannot at the same time be Ten Suggestions.


America – like on the eve of the Revolution – has arrived at the moment, the final click before midnight. While every election holds its own importance, few rise to the level of this one.


There are very few options left.


Trump wins, and the possibility to roll back Communism results.


Trump "loses" to the Communist tyrants (regardless of the candidate), and America, as we have always understood it, is finished.


For the last half of the last century, America fought against the scourge of Communism abroad. It became a defining characteristic of our foreign policy, as well as some domestic ones.


But, the collapse of the old Soviet Union was a mirage regarding Communism. The nation collapsed, but the evil endured, and had already infected America – jumping to a new host country just as it had brought about the death of the former.


Here, as it seized hold of one political party and advanced the impact of the sexual revolution of the 1960s, it began eating away at founding principles of the nation – liberty, freedom, justice, fairness, stability – until we have reached a point where too many are no longer sure what nation we are.


Through the lust for power on the part of various politicians, Communism wormed into the Democratic Party, while at the same time finding very little pushback from the Republican Party.


A gigantic transformation has already occurred. The division is no longer about political parties – it's about worldviews – Patriotism vs. Communism.


Now the country is immobilized; split almost down the middle – stuck in time, as time marches on.


Without overstatement – the nation is at a soul-defining moment.

America is a conquered nation, the USA is a failing, bankrupt, lawless empire ruled by a foreign elite, and it has been this way for decades. But only now are the people being forced to wake up to that fact. And only now are they beginning to understand that they are not going to vote their way out of their decades of humiliation any more than the Chinese people did.


We can try to ignite a third Party revolution, but the Two Party System has stage Four Terminal Cancer.

timmedi tries to "educate" us about Lincoln and slavery, as seen in his lengthy and wandering comment below. However, timmedi is incorrect and Voris is correct. Timmedi has taken the quote Michael references out of context. Here is the Lincoln speech Michael references, presented more fully and in context. Slavery is explicitly referenced by Lincoln in the speech.

"A house divided against itself, cannot stand.

I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free.

I do not expect the Union to be dissolved – I do not expect the house to fall – but I do expect it will cease to be divided.

It will become all one thing or all the other.

Either the opponents of slavery will…

No, I'm correct.

A nation of states were currently and could have continued to both support slavery ( in the South ) and outlaw slavery ( in the North ) , but Lincoln wanted War.


On the subject of Slavery, the House was NOT divided against itself as Lincoln tried to assert. The House WAS divided against itself on Tariffs.  


In the US Constitution slavery was not a federal issue.  It was a state issue until the 13th Amendment in 1865. The issue between the North and South was not slavery. On the surface the issue was the tariff. 


Michael Voris doesn't seem to know the Facts about Slavery in the U.S. or the U.S. Civil War, nor do you.

timmeddi has endeavored to educate us on the civil war, a greatly confused time, but he seems to have ignored the resulting 150+ years since then. The Republicans are surely not perfect and do not stick to their beliefs at all times. But there is an overriding difference between what the Communist Democrats want and what the Republican want. Ignoring this difference allows us to lose our freedoms and the ability to practice our faith. I would suggest that timmeddi go to Amazon and buy my book - Voting For Your Faith: Are You Doing It? - and get out of the 1860s and think of 2024 and beyond. The Communist Democrats, as Gary terms them, have clearly stated wha…

First, you shouldn't be hawking your gear (book) on here.


Second, we have just seen the Republicans support the Democrats

in forever Wars in Gaza and Ukraine,

We have seen the Republicans support the Democrats in every Government spending increase.

We have seen the Republicans capitulate on every Border Security measure.

We have seen the Republicans support LGBTQ+ sickness at every opportunity.


There is NO significant difference between what the Republicans want and what the Democrats want.

The ONLY difference is that the Democrats tell us what they want and the Republicans tells us they don't want that, but then end up supporting it.


In effect, the Communist Democrats are at least Honest about what they support, the Republicans LIE…

Michael Voris is confused.

He says "Lincoln's speech was talking about slavery. A nation of states supposedly united could not both support and outlaw slavery."

Uh, yes a nation of states could both support and outlaw slavery, and they did that quite well.

Proof of Lincoln's support of Slavery below.


Also, Michael says "Here, as it ( Communism ) seized hold of one political party and advanced the impact of the sexual revolution of the 1960s..."


Sorry Michael, The Republican Party supports the Democrat Party at every turn. The Republican Party is Pro Sodomy, Pro Same Sex Marriage, Pro Transgenderism, Pro LGBTQ+. Pro Big Government, Pro Forever Wars.....

All one has to do is look at Every single vote for…
