Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
Lately, that's what has been happening in our country by the slow erosion of our American Judeo-Christian values that we have championed over the years and that have made us the preeminant country of the world. Most objective sane observers would concur with that statement.
But, in our midst there are a gaggle of self-hating Americans. Our ex-President Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Adam Schiff, Ilhan Omar etc. who would like to see a “total transformation” of our social and economic society, but they are smart enough to not openly push their agenda too fast down the throats of the American public. They talk out of both sides of their mouths, and never admit to their true intentions. So, if the radical lefty loons can regain power after the next election, the pace of “transformation” will be accelerated, and the country we have known since its inception will become a distant memory. Obama started out with his ill-timed health
care bill, (known as Obamacare), that constituted the government takeover of 1/6 of our economy. The Democrats, ignoring the will of the people, passed this legislative monstrosity with just Democrat votes and no input, of any substance, by the Republicans. The Democrats hail this as a success and an achievement, but more than 60% of the public don't like it and want it repealed. Today, the lefty loons want “Medicare for All” with a price tag of over $50 trillion in ten years. That will be one part of the “transformation” that will cost the Democrats the election of 2020, along with the fact that all Democrats voted against the Trump tax cuts and tax reform. Luckily for us, much of the other policies put forth by Obama and the Democrats to “transform” our country, were thwarted by mainly the Republicans with the election of Donald Trump, with very few courageous Democrats bucking their party.
But, all is not well in “River City” (from the play the Music Man), for over the past 50 years, we've seen the slow erosion of things that we once held dear that seem to no longer matter. Some of these erosion's of our values are: the breakup of the family by having the government intrude in our everyday lives (ex. since the “War on Poverty” was instituted by LBJ in 1965, today, 70% of the black births and 40% of other races births are conceived out of wedlock and mostly with no father at home); the assault on the institution of marriage, as had been passed down to us over the centuries, that marriage is defined as being between one man and one woman, is no longer looked upon as being the norm. Now we've been told by the “P.C. Police” that same sex marriage is just as normal as the original pairing of a man and woman, and if you disagree you are then referred to as a bigoted homophobe at worst and an intolerant lunatic at best; and that a person being religious is somehow looked upon as that person being illiberal and oppressive, and in addition that person is tobe looked upon as being stupid for being a believer, that taking and using drugs should be legalized as being a normal fact of life, mainly because it is too difficult to control, so why bother; and being a success in life is not to be considered an inspiration by the many, but a grievance by the few outspoken lefty loons among us, as being a success means you must've gotten to be a success by trampling upon the rights of others. Hard work and perseverance doesn't seem to matter to them, they want to share the fruits of your labor to people who didn't earn it in the first place, the old robbing Peter to pay Paul syndrome.
There are other examples of how we have “defined deviancy down” (a phrase coined by the late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan), to where many of our younger people today don't know the difference between right from wrong and they think that the world owes them a living. That is the little by little, and drip by drip I was referring to in the headline of this column. We will join the demise of the once great Roman Empire if we don't turn things around, and a good start will be by turning out and voting out the “transformation” rascals in 2020. It's later than you think, so go out now and do the right thing. All is not lost, yet! So, let's “Make America Great Again”, support President Donald Trump and his “America First” agenda.
