Over the past eighteen or nineteen months, I have watched closely as the media has waged an unprecedented war against President Trump. I have watched as the liberal left in the form of Robert Mueller has attempted what I would call a silent coup, to removed President Trump from office and replace him with Hillary Clinton.
As a citizen of the United States and a bit of a historian, I cannot help but see similarities between modern American and Ancient Rome. The liberal left seems to be doing everything they can to destroy America and the Constitution, while the Conservative right stands by and lets them. I believe in America, and I believe in the Constitution of the United States, yet I have come to realize that it is the liberal left that is using it to destroy America.
There was a time in America when the people knew their place in this country. They knew that it was their responsibility to see to it that our government met the wishes of the people and that America’s greatness came from the people and not the government. Over the years the government and its minions have slowly but surely gained in strength and power by allowing government officials to impose unneeded regulations that are treated and enforced as law, almost to the point of communistic socialism. Interestingly, if you look at it objectively, you see that as Communism has failed in Russia, it has grown in the United States.
While I do not necessarily agree with everything that President Trump has done during his administration, I am capable of seeing his successes, and realize that what he is doing is slowly but surely re-establishing the greatness of America. At the same time, I see the battles and failure of a Congress and Senate that lacks the intestinal fortitude to stand up and do the job the people elected them to do while figuring out ways of increasing their fortunes as quickly as they can while in office. To be fair not all of our elected officials act in this manner, yet if you compare Ancient Rome to America, these are the ones who will eventually end up laying in the figurative streets with their throats cut.
As a citizen of this great nation, I believe that it is time for the American people to stand up and fight for what is right. It is time for all of us to work together and stop the nonsense that seems to be prevalent these days. It is not necessary to label everyone a racist or talk of white privilege. Not only do black lives matter, but all life matters and it time we as a people realize it.
It is time for media to return to its original ethics and report the news dispassionately and objectively and not take sides politically. It is also time for the American people to stand and realize that only by observing the First Amendment through proper discourse without violence and an exchange of ideas that you may not necessarily agree with, but you can at least learn from.
I am an old man now, and the years have gone by quickly for me. I have traveled most of the world in my youth and seen things that not many have been fortunate enough to see. Throughout it all, I have been sure of one thing. America is the freest nation in the world. When my time finally does come, I would like to go with the knowledge that it still is.
