The Most Noble Experiment in Human History is on a Ventilator

We are witnessing the utter destruction of American values. This great country is not an accident. It was born of geniuses who through some form of Providence came together to literally will the United States into existence. Not only did they launch a new republic, they set it up for unprecedented success by combining freedom with inalienable rights. The underpinning that allowed for an explosion of creativity and prosperity for centuries was fundamentally that hard work could be rewarded, and lifestyles enhanced. There was an implicit understanding that while the United States provided no guaranteed outcomes, it did offer unprecedented opportunities for success.

Were there equal opportunities for the slaves (and their immediate descendants) brought to the United States against their will? No. Did traders from Britain, Portugal, and France roam the African Continent capturing slaves for export to buyers around the world? No, they didn’t have to. Dominant African tribes were more than happy to do the dirty work and sell lesser advantaged peoples into slavery. It was ever thus.

Perhaps the greatest folly of the past month (and that’s not an easy one to pick, given the daily deluge of chicaneries being foisted on the American populace) is the notion that slavery was a uniquely American peculiarity, and blacks in America are owed reparations because of the way they have been treated from the 1600s until today. Perhaps Al Sharpton sums up the thought process from his speech (click here) at a George Floyd memorial service. The premise here is that no African Americans in the United States have been successful because the white man has held them back.

First, this is patently absurd, as there are millions of successful African Americans in the United States. Second, while no human being today can possibly justify the enslavement of another human being, the fact is that the Emancipation Proclamation was 158 years ago.

I do not accept the fact that the white man’s knees have been on the black man’s neck right up to present day. The Civil Rights Act was signed into law half a century ago. Trillions of taxpayer dollars have been spent on what could easily be deemed to be reparations in everything but name.

To quote Sherlock....Well, we now have a firm grasp of the obvious. Unfortunately, the retards are in control.

Identify one man that is not flawed. Trump is the best option we have. He is the right man at the right time. I don't care about his tweets. I want a warrior. I want a man that does not sleep, and eats 2 damn scoops of Ice Cream while everyone else has one. I want a man that demands loyalty from his subordinates, because I expect nothing less from mine. Who wants to employ a backstabbing coward?

I want a leader, not a kneeler.

Or someone who bows, scrapes and bends over in front of world leaders and terrorist, at home and abroad.
