From its inception until today, America has been known as one of the most compassionate nations on earth. It is kind because its people are kind. Its citizens give not once but TWICE in every global humanitarian crisis: Once through their government (we the people) and again from their own personal pockets.
It’s a characteristic of a nation built on a Judeo-Christian ethic. Not a perfect people, but a compassionate people. But sadly, in a world who knows this fact all too well…you can be sure that the selfish, self-serving and all those who loathe America’s goodness (out of envy) have always been chomping at the bit to bring her low.
Alexis de Tocqueville once said, “The greatness of America lies not in being more enlightened than any other nation, but rather in her ability to repair her faults.” America’s desire to right its wrongs has left it with an interminable guilt, which has produced compassion (at times) out of order. A vulnerable place where those seeking to serve themselves zero in on this frailty.
Enter, the onslaught of Islam, Illegals and Leftists upon America’s goodness…
Followers of Islam, targeting America’s guilt, have gained great ground on suppressing America’s free speech (First Amendment) rights. Cloaked in the burqa of victimhood, by taking a page from After The Ball (page 221) and have used the laws meant to protect true victims, in order to undermine our liberty which is the foundation of our goodness.
Knowing that we are a nation of immigrants (legal) and that we have always been a sanctuary for those desiring to be free, many in third-world counties have seen our prosperity (from our solid work ethic) and our generosity to the needy…and have decided to take advantage of that kindness, whether we like it or not. They have breached our borders, lied to take jobs from Americans, stolen and trashed the property of our citizens, cheated to take services and subventions from hard-working Americans, etc. Illegally taking of America’s bounty…till there is none left for anyone. And currently, illegals are using their innocent children as anchors for themselves to come to our nation to rob and rape it to their fill.
Islam’s and Illegals little helper monkeys. These are the foolish and feckless offspring of the Stalinists. Myopic, ungrateful sots who care little what is spent or lost on these selfish souls…as long as it’s not coming from their coffers or wallets.
And of course, let’s not forget those who more often than not, forget that THEY work for US: Our Congress. These Representatives in their convenient amnesia, labor arduously NOT to represent their constituency and do good for America, but rather to throw the People’s money at what they KNOW is wrong for freedom, in order to be liked by their enemies.
Alexis de Tocqueville also said: “America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.” If America continues to allow these three to multiply among our ranks, we will forever cease to be great…or good…for anything.
