Christmas is a time to reflect on our blessings, and this year is no exception. For the first time in a decade, things are beginning to head in a good direction, but there is still much work to do. The 2016 election was only a reprieve, it was the beginning of the real work and not the end of it.

 

Things are Getting Better ...

This article continues the discussion started in Part I, using the areas of education, poverty, and healthcare as examples. More detail on the first two topics can be found in Collectivism and Charity: The Great Deception.

Living in the Land of Lies discussed some progressive principles, how they impact society and differ from our founding ideas. Progressive ideas are not limited to any particular political party. This article draws from the 2016 Democratic Party Platform, a platform steeped in progressive ideas representing man’s enlightenment of himself. Man turned toward man, or man and man alone.

This article examines our governance, specifically its guiding principles. This article is not party specific. It doesn’t matter whether you have a ‘D’, ‘I’, or ‘R’ after your name. One’s ideology and derived principles are what matter, and today’s ideological buzz word is ‘progressive.’ People holding progressive ideas exist in both major parties, and are outlined below. Later, we’ll review portions of the 2016 Democratic Party Platform for its underlying principles, not picking on that particular partybut today’s Democratic party is largely controlled by communists and socialists. Their platform provides all the evidence needed to see where they actually stand, regardless of what they say.

There is a lot of talk today that the current administration is populist. Is it true or, like many other stories carried by today’s media, just another lie? Populism is a form of collectivism, similar to socialism and communism. It focuses on;

Things took a turn for the worse last Tuesday (June 13) with the deliberate shooting of people practicing for a Congressional ballgame in Northern Virginia. Like it or not, we are in a civil war - one of contradictory and incompatible ideas. Up to last Tuesday it had just not been a shooting war, but there is no doubt the first shot was fired last Tuesday. I pray that it will be the last and only incident. Hatred and division has been stoked by eight years of the Obama administration and continued by those supporting his party’s ideas. We have not been this divided since before the war between the states.

This article’s topic would be laughable, if it did not pose such a serious threat to our freedom. Liberals have been heavily stoking their base with hate, and claiming that those who oppose them are fascists. Is that accusation true? This article looks at the facts and where those take us.

As we witnessed the peaceful transition of power on January, 20th, despite the rancor occurring during the election itself, it seems fitting to think a bit about Obama’s legacy. There have been certainly been many analysts and talking heads who have expressed their views, but are their views grounded in truth? Without that, their words are as empty as the wind, and of little value.

The last article questioned if principles matter any longer within our country? Well, the election is over. We have some results that indicate whether we even understand what principles are any longer. No, I am not talking about the Presidential election, those of the Senate or House, the governorships, or even the state legislatures.  Virginia had two constitutional ballot initiatives this election. The first proposed an amendment supporting Virginia’s right to work law.  Its purpose was to make it more difficult for a governor or other elected official from undermining present law. The second provided localities the option of creating property tax exemptions for the surviving spouse of certain emergency services providers who die in the line of duty.

We’re all familiar with this year’s election issues.  They include: the economy, jobs, taxes, the regulatory burden (all internal), and national security, the terrorism threat, border integrity, and rebuilding our military (all external).  While all these, and more, are valid issues; there is something more fundamental at stake that supports all the above.  The principles which underlie these issues.
