Life, Liberty and the Pursuit
This article is short and sweet depending upon your perception of current events so I’ll take a stab at it anyway. There seems to be a fundamental difference between conservatives and liberals in America, and it’s not even about political parties anymore.
American conservatives are generally supporters of the Constitution and the Rule of Law for which it stands. Ask what they value most as an American?
They may say:
The Pursuit of Happiness
Freedom of Religion
Right to Bear Arms
Right to Vote
Freedom from Oppression
Those are just a few of the things that conservatives hold dear and many are codified by the Amendments and in the Constitution.
American liberals although voicing their patriotism seem to have a very different view of the Constitution and the Rule of Law.
When asked what they value most as an American?
They may say:
The Pursuit of Donald J. Trump
Freedom from Religion
Right to Disarm Opposing Views
Right of Illegals to Vote
Freedom to Oppress
Right to Free Stuff
Right to Resist
These are just a few of the things that liberals hold dear even though they go against the Constitution and are without regard to the Rule of Law.
Being patriotic is not simply toting the party line, or backing the current president. Patriotism is placing the good of the country before your own interests. Patriotism is placing your very life on the line in defense of the idea that for this Constitutional Republic to succeed gives out a glimmer of hope to a world that is constantly battling one dictator after another, one bad regime followed by one which is worse.
The light beaming out from the United States of America gives hope where hopelessness exists and survival is not guaranteed. American patriots search for ways to bring hope to the hopeless and stand by our motto, “IN GOD WE TRUST”!
