USA – -(Ammoland.com)- The election is over. Our country survives. Freedom lives another day. Our citizens understood the lies and they thought for themselves.
Our philosophy of freedom, capitalism and armed citizens works without lies. We know that we are on the right side because we do not need to lie.
We are comforted by that and we sometimes feel superior to the ignorant, because:
….on the other hand, the philosophy of the left requires lies.
Their ideas are not realistic and fail to work. [gun control is the perfect example of this.] It is difficult for us to describe the intensity of the liberal lies without creating a deeper chasm between us and them.
That would not be practical at this time and in this situation.
Still, we must acknowledge that we can not ever believe the establishment, lest we fall into their trap.
The Bill of Rights stems from freedom and is, at the same time, a tool to protect our freedoms.
The glorious visions of the benefits of globalism with open borders, socialism that includes grand theft and the death cult of violent Islamism, seems to energize the left.
But it cannot exist without the lies that convince people that these ‘-isms’ are acceptable.
We need to remember that our power crazed enemies are still out there, ready to say anything necessary to control the country, and that their greedy minions are eager to believe the next set of lies, as they wait to be given an extra crust of bread.
As of this writing, CNN's Chris Cuomo told a lie by asking a question.
He asked guests if President-elect Trump could suddenly change from being a divisive candidate to becoming a presidential uniter.
In other words, the implication is, with thousands of ignorant, frightened youth demonstrating in America's cities, how can Trump overcome the divisions, which, according to Mr. Cuomo, Trump created.
Mr. Trump, we pray for you.
Americans wobbled from Democrat to Republican and back again, falling for the promises of the establishment. And they became frustrated because they could observe that their current elected leaders did not keep their promises.
Every decision the leaders had made, every policy they devised, was designed to weaken, impoverish and destroy our nation.
Our Founders wrote of a grand experiment.Thomas Jefferson said, “I have no fear that the result of our experiment will be that men may be trusted to govern themselves without a master.” James Madison, it is believed, wrote, “We have staked the future of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government; upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.”
The enemies of freedom are now calling for compromise on the presence of the electoral college. Their call for compromise is a ploy, another lie. Have we not already almost compromised away our nation?
The election was close. One could even make the argument that freedom lost. There are now wistful calls to eliminate the Electoral College.
This is because, even though President-elect Trump won 306 electors to 232, Clinton slightly led the popular vote count, 61,047,207 to 60.375.961.
If one looks at a map of US counties, showing Trump's winners in red, one will see a red nation with a few sprinkled areas won by Clinton (blue).
Yet, if the electoral college were to be eliminated, and pure democracy was the rule, that is one vote per person, Clinton would have won.
The electoral college is created as follows:
One elector for each member of Congress (House and Senate), three (3) for the District of Columbia – thus a total of 538 Electoral votes. (Example: Alaska, with 1 member of the House +_2 Senators, is allocated 3 Electoral votes) This voting system, which creates a Democratic Republic1, was designed to stop ‘mob’ rule.
This method should never be changed because it protects all citizens from mob governance. We remain a nation that consists of a group of states, making us a Republic not a Democracy.
Our Founders chose to starve the central government of power in order to maximise the power of the each citizen and the individual states.
The grand experiment of our Founders has not yet failed. But note, the number of Clinton voters should sober us up. They outnumber us.
We looked away as the left took over our educational system, EPA, IRS, FDA, BAFTE, etc.
We failed to limit the number of people who believe that the wealthy can provide free lunches and generous free living for the rest.
More than half the voting population are ignorant and susceptible to media lies. We are at the tipping point of keeping freedom or sliding into the abyss of social destruction.
It's no longer a question of maintaining the right to defend ourselves and our families with weapons we chose to own. We need to re-educate half the nation in order for them to understand the ramifications of their voting decisions.
We cannot let this stand. We have work to do and we don't know how much time we have until the next critical election changes our position.
Our dear country remains at a crossroad and is at risk.
Trump gives us a chance to correct the path of our freedoms.
To the SNOWFLAKES out there, at the Presidential level, we don’t have one person, one vote … It’s not a Democracy, it’s a Democratic Republic.
