Conservatives Must Have More Than an Opinion

We must instill patriotism in the next generation, or we can’t expect different results.

Americans in 2016 watched the fits and tantrums escalate to vandalism, destroyed inner cities, riots, and even violence that led to death. Now that Joe Biden has declared victory, just like that, the cry from the political Left is for unity. The riots are suddenly over, and the moral high ground is assumed by the very ones calling half of our nation racists, bigots, and every other name in between.

Time magazine’s commemorative cover declares the post-November era as a “A Time to Heal” — straight out of Biden’s victory speech. Just as a wife-beater verbally and physically assaults his partner and then tells her to pretty up, rise to the occasion, and accept yet another promise for better days, Democrats of the media and the political apparatus are asking to be taken seriously in their demands for unity. After four disgusting years of political stunts, baseless accusations, entrapments, constant public criticism, false charges of racism, and destruction in major cities, the expectation of Republicans is acceptance and approval.

As this electoral morass continues, many Americans are exasperated to see the mathematically fantastical turnout in some counties. In disbelief, Americans watched Democrats successfully file hundreds of lawsuits to skirt legislative constructs in the courts to weaken voter-identification laws, remove proof of citizenship to vote, and require that unsolicited mail-in ballots in some states be sent to hundreds of thousands that include erroneous addresses and deceased voters.

In this anger and frustration, Americans on the Right, while being told it’s time to heal and cozy up to those who hate us, are seeking explanations, remedies, and justice. Why? Because many Americans are educated enough to know that in a just nation, laws are respected, not selectively applied. Let’s spread the message of the uniqueness of a nation founded by those seeking the liberty to worship and speak freely outside the reach of a monarchy. Let’s demand that the authentic truth about America’s success despite our failures be taught to our children in school and confront the lies of indoctrination from kindergarten to college.

Americans, wake up! We who hope to see this as a free country where we can raise our own children, enjoy our own private property, and worship as we choose without fear of reprisal or censorship must immediately get engaged and remain vigilant to the blatant attacks on our rights. Americans with faith and center-right views on policy and the role of government, sit fearful and silent no more! God-fearing patriotic Americans must take the observation of Ronald Reagan as the call to action: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

No matter who is president, American families can pass on self-respect, morals, and virtues that have given Americans great opportunities and unique freedom. Once we establish our homes and families as our priority, our culture will reflect the same.
