We the People

There’s much that Americans have to be proud of as Americans and citizens of this exceptional nation. The bicoastal secular progressive elites are doing their level best to erase this America and all we are culturally, historically, economic, freedom, liberty, right, and freedom and replace it with a cold secular big government regime where we are to shut up and obey. Let’s go Brandon!  We love our 1776 America and feel great about her and will not give up our economic freedom, individual rights, or religious liberty.  Not to the branch covidians, not to the eco freaks, and not to the deep state.  Trump 2024!

Americans Yearn to Feel Good About America Again

Hate Donald Trump, or love the guy, there are lots of good reasons for buyer's remorse regarding the election of Joe Biden.

Here are 10 of them:

National Respect and Patriotism

America is an appropriately grateful and proud nation bequeathed to us by brave, idealistic, determined hard-working people from all over the world who came here to fulfill dreams for freer and better lives.

It is painfully repugnant to witness modern Jacobins denigrate and attempt to erase that marvelous legacy seemingly overnight: replacing America's 1776 founding with a New York Times "1619 Project" rewrite as a systemically racist country; nihilistic mobs destroying and defacing statues of historical figures with impunity; and schools, institutions, and streets dedicated to such founding leaders as George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson renamed as "offensive."

Multicultural Heritage and Pride

The America I deeply cherish is appropriately celebrated as an enormously diverse and blessedly enriched and celebrated "melting pot" multi-culture founded, above all, upon shared and mutually respectful individual freedoms, values, heritage backgrounds and ethnicities irrespective of skin color, gender or economic status.

Egregiously, we are witnessing a divisive neo-Marxist critical race theory (CRT) stereotypic identity-based assault on our institutions and culture that has invaded American K-12 schools, universities, government agencies, and even the U.S. military — the very kind of discriminatory thinking that concerned Americans have been fighting against.

Parental Rights and Responsibilities

A growing number of elementary school parents are urgently and appropriately challenging local school boards regarding the irreparable harm to children introduced by indoctrination of historic CRT guilt and anti-cultural liturgy which characterizes our nation as a "systemically racist" society.

Meanwhile, according to the National Education Department — even prior to learning losses from pandemic school closures — a majority of American fourth- and eighth-graders can't read or do math at grade level.

Abuses of Federal Authority

In response to a Sept. 29 National School Boards Association letter asking Joe Biden to investigate parental threats or disruptions at school board meetings as "domestic terrorism," Attorney General Merrick Garland unleashed the police powers of FBI investigators and prosecutors to intimidate any such future "offenders."

By contrast, very few looters, arsonists and rioters responsible for more than $2 billion of private and government property damage in last year's "mostly peaceful protests" were ever indicted, and most were never even arrested.

Pursuit of Equality —  Not Equity

The bedrock principle enunciated by America's founders in the second paragraph of our nation's Declaration of Independence states: ''We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.''

Whereas most Americans generously recognize a fair and moral responsibility to assist poor and disadvantaged citizens, there is a fundamental difference between assuring equal opportunities and guaranteeing equal outcomes which disincentive the pursuit of meritorious rewards.

Censorship of Communications

Politically biased private communication monopolies have cancelled social media accounts of a duly elected sitting president, along with blocking scandalous information regarding foreign influence peddling by his opponent just prior to the 2020 election.

First Amendment rights are being routinely abridged through an ever-creeping ideologically intolerant cancel culture of politically correct conformity which calls for swift and severe retribution in response to perceived transgressions of speech and thought that dare to depart from authoritarian "consensus."

Assaults on Republic Election Institutions

Identity politics of consensus censorship should only be applied to require legal mail-in voters to prove they are who they claim to be.

This assurance, along with other bedrock democratic institutions including the Electoral College and the Constitution's emphasis on individual states establishing voting laws, are under assault are under attack through "progressive" efforts to pack the U.S. Supreme Court, end the Senate 60-vote majority filibuster rule, and add Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico as reliably liberal new voting states.

Federal Bureaucratic Tyranny

EPA's regulatory anti-fossil policies are escalating inflationary fuel, food and commodity prices; far-left Democrats desperate for revenue to offset trillions in planned new spending plan to hire an army of additional IRS auditors; and vaccination mandates are requiring all federal government employees, contractors, military personnel and businesses with 100 or more employees to make vaccination a condition of employment regardless of natural immunity from COVID recovery.

Bordering on Insanity

Oddly, vaccine requirements don't seem to apply to hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants who are crossing the southern border and are presumably at large somewhere in the U.S. without a legal right to be in the country, nor to those benevolent folks who have reduced several of the nation's urban centers to crime-infested wastelands.

Consequential COVID-19 spread, child education and welfare costs, drug addiction and crime impacts will be felt far beyond border states, including burdened liberal-leaning northern communities.

National Indefensibility

President Joe Biden intentionally abandoned America's energy independent security from foreign sources by shutting down the Keystone XL pipeline and ANWR, then gave a pass for Russia's Nord Stream 2 natural gas Baltic undersea pipeline to Germany, and unsuccessfully pleaded with OPEC to increase oil production to reduce politically problematic U.S. pump prices.

This was followed by a disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal that gave America's allies and adversaries good reason to distrust U.S. military leadership and defense commitment, making our nation more vulnerable to 9/11-type attacks on our mainland than any time in modern history.

So by contrast, maybe all those annoying Trump tweets weren't so bad after all.

100% in agreement. 

The rest of your screeching trollish commentary and the usual one sided bile from Larry Bell is predictable

one sided partisan victim-hood one finds on one of your typical Questionable sources

We rate Newsmax Right Biased and Questionable based on the promotion of conspiracy theories and pseudoscience as well as numerous failed fact checks.

Boo hoo.

Oh well.  No conservative here gives a damn about what that lame ass organization that exists for the intellectually lazy and weak minded to avoid serious discussion of the issues thinks about anything at all, assuming that they even think at all.  Few places are as blatantly biased and bigoted as that.

National Respect and Patriotism

This is a joke right? Trump all but destroyed our relationships with allies and destroyed any respect we had from those same allies. Fortunately, Biden is reversing the damage.

America’s Image Abroad Rebounds With Transition From Trump to Biden

The election of Joe Biden as president has led to a dramatic shift in America’s international image. Throughout Donald Trump’s presidency, publics around the world held the United States in low regard, with most opposed to his foreign policies. This was especially true among key American allies and partners. Now, a new Pew Research Center survey of 16 publics finds a significant uptick in ratings for the U.S., with strong support for Biden and several of his major policy initiatives.

In each of the 16 publics surveyed, more than six-in-ten say they have confidence in Biden to do the right thing in world affairs. Looking at 12 nations surveyed both this year and in 2020, a median of 75% express confidence in Biden, compared with 17% for Trump last year.

800

During the past two decades, presidential transitions have had a major impact on overall attitudes toward the U.S. When Barack Obama took office in 2009, ratings improved in many nations compared with where they had been during George W. Bush’s administration, and when Trump entered the White House in 2017, ratings declined sharply. This year, U.S. favorability is up again: Whereas a median of just 34% across 12 nations had a favorable overall opinion of the U.S. last year, a median of 62% now hold this view.

In France, for example, just 31% expressed a positive opinion of the U.S. last year, matching the poor ratings from March 2003, at the height of U.S.-France tensions over the Iraq War. This year, 65% see the U.S. positively, approaching the high ratings that characterized the Obama era. Improvements of 25 percentage points or more are also found in Germany, Japan, Italy, the Netherlands and Canada.

Still, attitudes toward the U.S. vary considerably across the publics surveyed. For instance, only about half in Singapore and Australia have a favorable opinion of the U.S., and just 42% of New Zealanders hold this view. And while 61% see the U.S. favorably in Taiwan, this is actually down slightly from 68%   in a 2019 poll .

Biden's approval rate is at 38%, I'd probably stay away from recent poll information and pull something from pre Afghanistan debacle too. 

Meanwhile even democrats are freaking embarrassed. We do however appreciate your commitment to staying on board the sinking ship.

Just on the facts the seeded article is pretty empty of persuasion, but I would like to ask the seeder or anyone else a question. 

The article says America has not been "systematically" racist  historically. 

Would someone please point out to me any historical era in American history, even as much as a decade, when the majority of adult whites were not either openly racist or complicit by silence?  

I don't think anyone can produce such an era or decade. If the country has been filled with widespread racism, from the beginning, (and it has) how is that not systematic ?

It’s part of the progressives plan to denigrate 1776 America and the founders and to replace real history with 1619 project propaganda and to unleash CRT BS upon us, something many African Americans actively oppose in these school board meetings.

We are not even going to go there with collective white guilt with progressives.  Either we move toward MLK’s dream of content of character and not race to judge people with or we don’t dialogue at all.  Collective white guilt as a precondition to any discussion about race relations means that there will be no discussion period.  Fortunately, most African Americans are still all in on Kings dream and building from here onward rather than navel gazing upon every single mistake we ever made.
