"The Holy Bible will save us. Our Constitution will save us. Without allegiance to those two timeless documents, our only hope is to start prepping. And then get ready to play out the end game."
Years ago, I penned an article called "Why we hate each other". The funny thing about that article is this - as bad as I thought the discourse was in this country at the time I wrote it, it is an order of magnitude worse today. We really do hate each other. Not a little bit - a lotta bit. A deep visceral hatred for the other side. Fellow Americans. Hating each other. Wishing the other side would just pack up and leave - or worse.
How did we get to this point? The ying and yang. The black and white. The Republican and Democrat. Now, the conservative and socialist democrat. How? Is it money? Is it whose ox will be gored? Is it a boundary issue? Philosophy? Or is it just plain everything?
Right now this country is in a civil war. Please don't scoff - we really are. Our hatred for the other side has boiled to the point we cannot stand talking to each other. Zero discourse. Practically ungovernable.
We are in uncharted and very dangerous waters right now. How so? This cold war which we have found ourselves in, could turn hot at any moment. When that happens, it will be Katie bar the door. Blood will flow in the streets. American blood. In America. It will be our Civil War, deja vu. Only this time it will not be about territory or slavery. It will be much more complicated.
These are the days our Founders hoped would never come. The end of days for the Great American Experiment. Oh, the Experiment worked very well thank you, for a couple hundred plus years. But then many of us lost the cook book? The cook book? Yes, our Constitution. It is our Constitution which is the tie that binds. When one side eschews that wonderful document, and decides to go rouge, we become a nation of tribes. Then bad things can happen quickly.
So this article does not sound too gloomy and doomy, I will offer a ray of hope for this great land. Just like it has since the 18th century, our Constitution can once again save us. When all sides of the spectrum recognize that founding document is what has in the past, and will in the future, make us great. Without the ageless guidance of our Constitution, we will become tribal are warring.
Al Gore wants us to think the biggest threat to the American people is man made global warming. Some want to think it is the Russians. Others, aliens from outer space. If the truth be known, our biggest threat to ourselves - is ourselves.
We will ruin this country through hatred. The Holy Bible will save us. Our Constitution will save us. Without allegiance to those two timeless documents, our only hope is to start prepping. And then get ready to play out the end game.
