***The Decline of Exceptionalism***
1. There seems to be 2 worldviews & they are fighting to claim the identity of America in the 21st century and beyond.
2. One is centered upon Judeo-Christian lifestyles of kind-warmheartedness; being a good-Samaritan; morality & encompasses discipline, virtue, courage, & the dignity of being an American.
3. The other promotes lawlessness, endless grievances, class-racial-gender conflicts, immorality, endless victim-hood & when the going gets tgh they crawl into a "safe-space" or roll a joint, pop a pill, or stab a vein with liquid evil. thesun.co.uk/news/1926525/c…
4. The former encompasses American exceptionalism, individual freedom with responsibility, and classic ideas and ideals of the rights of man as embodied in the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. slideshare.net/slockyer/us-ex…
5. At the same time, the left focuses on the negatives of US history as well as upon vindictiveness and conflict to reach its goals.

6. We see these hostile themes reflected in the public utterances of Hillary Clinton & Barack Obama, both of whom sucked the milk of radicalism from the famous community organizer Saul Alinsky. rense.com/general80/fon.…
7. Additionally, since @POTUS @realDonaldTrump 's nomination, we have heard the nonstop screeds and vindictive words from the leadership of the Democratic Party. dailywire.com/news/20727/wed…
8. Nowhere are these sentiments expressed more clearly than on America's college campuses. blog.prepscholar.com/most-liberal-c…
9. One of the greatest threats to America is the FACT schools are NOT teaching the next generation morals, American exceptionalism, free enterprise, the Constitution, the dangers of socialism, or the value of hard work.

10. There can be no substitute for being a responsible consumer of one's education by doing one's own work honestly, forthrightly, &independently.
11. Progressives have run education off the rails and well nigh ruined it.
Colleges were once proving grounds for success in the professions.
12. By doctrine, students pay dreadful confiscatory tribute to progressivism where issues of race & political correctness form the foci of their consciousness.
They are the" bywords" for error. extremeethics.org/ethics-issues-…
13. Competition through self-expression is the means by which students achieve success & establish themselves in the world.
14. Its incumbent upon teachers everywhere to set the example so their students aspire to the cultural, moral, and intellectual grandeur to which they are capable. cpiu.us/?s=school+teac…
15. Rather than embracing these traditional American values, progressives objectify race & political correctness as the centers of their worldviews then use them as pretexts to foment institutional chaos.
16. No longer are they content to engage conservatives 'honestly' or 'in good faith.'Through heightened antipathy, they 'play the victim' antagonizing conservatives often along racial lines to garner public sympathy & thereby bolster their voter base. curvemag.com/News/Bathroom-…
17. As repugnant the 'victim-grievance' mentality has become, its proven remarkably successful. Ever so much more, the very 'rule of law' has become anachronistic. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anachroni…
18.The growing reactions on the left against "free speech" & "the right to bear arms" are well established. humanevents.com/2010/07/05/fiv…
19. Honest hardworking, taxpaying, God loving and fearing folks have been unfairly set upon by the malaise of relativism (where the state becomes the final arbiter of not only their freedom but their wealth & privilege.)
valleyadvocate.com/2015/03/18/the…
20. Through their unwillingness to change their views on fiscal policies, the left alienate honest, hardworking folks by refusing to connect w/them on tax reform, the productile need & which cannot be overstated. weeklystandard.com/editorial-why-….....
21. ....maybe its bc the "representatives" are filthy rich
& no longer "represent" you or I
as their
"constituents"
media.cq.com/media/50riches…
The have no skin in the game.
22. The regular folks have long felt ignored, abandoned, and forgotten by their government. (well unless it's an election year)

They have groaned under the burden of rising taxes, which, over time, cheapen the products of their work.
23. Its through the 'dignity of work' that we celebrate our heritage as Americans & where we become part of a cause, far higher than ourselves.
24. Democrats believe unforgivably that there exists a disparity of privilege between rich & poor. They missed an important opportunity to honestly engage with the folks on the broader issue of economic resurgence.
25. Democrats erroneously believe & altogether unforgivably think that THEY are entitled to spend wealth that is NOT theirs.
quora.com/Why-do-liberal…
Work is not relative.
Neither are earnings.
26. Philosophically, the entire progressive movement errs upon this relativism and abject disdain for capitalism. cei.org/blog/young-ame…
27. It should be noted that the beginning of socialism is progressivism.
Communism, with all of its ghastly accoutrements, is its end.
If left unchecked, chaos ensues where, in a climate of unparalleled polarization,
nolanchart.com/article8364-so…
28. And you know what, The @POTUS @realDonaldTrump is correct.
"The rule of law is especially needed."
Democrats cannot be trusted to use freedom responsibly.
newsweek.com/trump-departme…
29. Democrats and even a few republicans have overplayed their hand through their evangelization of resistance.
rollingstone.com/politics/featu…
It will not avail, & neither will policing opinion with phony grievance- and protest-mongering.
30. Through their oftentimes reckless abandon for the rule of law, the left have adamantly REFUSED to come to terms.
thenation.com/article/throw-…
To wise up is the doom they must deem.
31. It takes more than cowardly behavior & screaming siren songs of moral relativism to make government work as it does to make human life work, simple, messy at times, & altogether imperfect it may be.
32. It consists not of vacuous bureaucracies (where success depends upon the failure of others), as it so often does, and its object is measured ephemerally only in terms of riches and of privilege.
33. Least of all, is it a strident tribute of vitriolic left-wing agendas where protest bordering on lawlessness is glorified as a societal good?
foxnews.com/politics/2017/…
34. American life is & should always be a renewal movement built upon the dignity; privilege & honor of 'being an American' – a living hope directed by discipline, virtue, & above all order.
35. It therefore takes time, energy, hard work & courage.
Most of all, it requires character & a manifestation of moral truth to set the example.
36. This, then, is the true business by which we as Americans aspire to greatness. Democrats must grasp this 'universality' so in time, they may at last be grasped by it. drurywriting.com/keith/democ.htm
37. We are reminded of the 1st chapter of Genesis, whereby God set the example through the light He created... in the midst of darkness & chaos.

From this light came life and law.
We would do well to mark them both ...for one cannot be had without the other.
38.
