I agree with Donald Trump. It’s time to
“Make America Great Again.”
To get that done, I suggest we get rid of Republicans and Democrats. If our citizens are going to have a chance to know and love America, the Democrats and the Republicans have to go – along with their un-American ideas.
This might take some work. The America I know is not described by partisan talking points. My America can’t be explained by elephants and asses. What I see is an America that is being passed back and forth by two hateful, divorced parents, who offer very little explanations for the changes in lifestyle we must endure when someone wins.
Let’s be clear, neither Republicans nor Democrats deserve my country, and if you are planning to give her to either side, then in my opinion, you will be a traitor and we will be enemies. I hope that’s clear to you talking point spitters and un-American followers of elephants and asses. If you identify as a Democrat or Republican, you don’t deserve America either.
I challenge the readers to take a minute and list your ideas about America, then compare them to your party’s platform. Compare what you write to the following quotes:
“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.” — Founding Father Samuel Adams
He didn’t say America needs Republicans or Democrats, he said Our Country will need experienced patriots.
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” — President Ronald Reagan
What kind of country are we about to vote for? What will we tell our children when America loses because of our choices?
“Loyalty to country ALWAYS. Loyalty to government, when it deserves it.” — Mark Twain
Who are we loyal to when we promise to vote for whatever candidate our party throws at us?
“A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.” — Edward Abbey
Will a patriot create a government or allow a government that will work against our country? How can we define our Congress other than a Parliament of whores and traitors. Will a patriot allow a political party to usurp our Constitution and abridge our agreed upon rights and privileges? Will a patriot put someone into the highest office in the land who promises to do exactly that? What patriots will elect an admitted usurper of our Constitution?
I think it’s time for us to make a decision. I realize we are expected to talk about Republican things and Democrat things, because those appear to be our choices. But, our country is suffering because of the things Republicans and Democrats are doing to us. Do we really want to join those clans?
I believe we can actually navigate around those political parties and be Americans again. We can take the best ideas our country has produced from our Constitution and from people in every political party, and use those ideas to simply be Americans. Granted we will have to leave the comfort of being told what to think by the people we are praying will actually fix our problems, but our national problems have only grown in my lifetime and I don’t expect Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton to be the first Republicans or Democrats to save us. We are all in this together, and I would like to be surrounded by Americans. The Democrats and the Republicans appear to be playing to win, not to build my country.
I will ask the readers again, to make your list about what America really stands for and compare your list to what the Republicans and the Democrats are telling you. I think it’s time for us to come together and be bigger than Republicans and Democrats.
I think we can make America.
