America is great because its founding ideas were built out of fighting tyranny through sacrifice, fire and war! The Founding Fathers and colonists had been controlled, regulated, taxed and robbed of justice for too long and they were committed to “Liberty or Death.” Additionally, America is great because it was blessed with the Founding Fathers, who were the most brilliant group of men to ever assemble in the history of the world. The Founders wanted to create a government that broke the model of all governments that preceded it, and they wrote a Declaration for their Independence to articulate their grievances and in the preamble, highlight their philosophical and theoretical ground on which they decided to break free.
Check out these words:
“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…
Never in the history of the world had these words ever been written and never have there been words so beautiful, just and inspiring! All men are created equal, means that every person, from every country, every race and every religion are endowed by their Creator God with unalienable rights, meaning these rights are absolute, eternal and always!
Government cannot take these rights away, for they are from our creator. President Lincoln used these same words to end slavery at the risk of destroying the country, however, he was committed to the Constitution, our Nation’s blueprint, in order to create a more perfect union and establish justice.
When you look through America’s storied history, it is the story of goodness fighting the evils of Fascism in WWI, Nazism in WWII, Communism in Korea and the Cold War, and Violent Islamic Fundamentalism in the Middle East, and every time America came out ahead because it was fighting for right and freedom!
Having done this, America distinguished herself as a nation that inspired all freedom loving people from around the world. This is the reason, people from around the world sacrifice all they have and risk their lives to come to the United States of America. Nowhere else in the world, do people flock to enjoy the freedoms, opportunities, and quality of life, then in America?
In summary, America is great because it was built on a foundation that emphasized Unity, Judeo-Christian values, Capitalism, our History and the Founding Fathers and Documents!
Marxism sucks, because it is committed to destroying everything that makes America or any country great. It wants to create division everywhere it can, destroy religion, swap out Capitalism for Communism, destroy history to learn and grow from and rewrite the greatest documents ever written, our Founding Documents.
Marxism sucks because it was built upon a false premise that Capitalism would destroy itself in the century after Karl Marx’s death, based on the belief that the working class would get more and more impoverished and would rise up to destroy the system.
However, if you look at the data, it is clear that over the century after the death of Marx, the working wages of average workers sky rocketed and never has the planet seen such wealth and material comforts.
Marxism sucks because it is built on the inherent tendency toward merciless dictatorships based on its premise to confiscate private property, which people don’t naturally, want to let go. So to take this property, it must be done through a lethal and ruthless dictatorship. Once this dictator has power, they will never give it away and abuse it more and more. This is the reason, communism is responsible for over 100 million deaths in its short existence.
Marxism also sucks because it opposes profits and competition. If there is no profit motive, the soul of people die and no one is inspired to innovate. It is not a coincidence that Apple, Microsoft, Amazon and Tesla are all American companies and not Russian or Chinese. The lack of competition, ensures there is no motive to improve. Thus the reason companies in communist countries don’t innovate, they steal innovation.
In summary, Marxism sucks because it believes in this one simple phrase, “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” This sounds great but it never works. The anti-individualism that Marxism represents has devalued human life along with the ownership of people, as well as what they produce, and property by the state.
As we move forward, America’s future is in peril, just as President Lincoln stated, that if America goes away, it will not be from an enemy at the gate, but through suicide. President Reagan also gave us fair warning when he told us: “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.”
Yuri Bezmenov, former KGB Agent and Soviet Union Defector stated that the Ideological Subversion (brainwashing) of the American people for a communist revolution was well underway back in 1984. It takes strength, courage and rational thought to not be demoralized, taught to hate the greatest country in the history of the world, for a government that has failed every time it has been tried and the only thing it has brought is the equal distribution of misery and death. Those that support Marxism have been demoralized.
You would think they would figure it out when every immigrant from a communist country, has nothing but disdain for the government from which they have come and only love for America, however, they have not. Unfortunately, the mindless drones, think they know more, not from their experience and education but from their indoctrination, to which they don’t even know the difference.
Our saving grace is going to be the American Spirit, that same American Spirit of our Founding Fathers and God’s continued blessing!
