The 1619 Project’s chapter and verse numbers have not yet been assigned, and its books are not so pithily named as “Psalms” or “Proverbs”. But it’s fairly clear from the titles of its first twelve selections that a new body of scripture is taking form right before our eyes.
Was slavery horrible? Yes. Was it immoral? Yes. But the one thing it was not is *unlawful*, and to put today’s American taxpayers under the onus of a crime for what was *legal behavior at the time* goes against not only an important principle clearly embedded in our Constitution but also our understanding of what living in a truly free society means.
We are only ever *one* Supreme Court Justice away from America’s losing what it means to be America. I am proposing ten Constitutional Amendments that will guarantee America’s culture keeps faith with the original social and political culture of the Founding Fathers.
In 2003, more than a decade before it legalized gay marriage, the Supreme Court declared all anti-sodomy laws unconstitutional. The United States could no longer punish a same-sex couple for engaging in homosexual acts. And that, combined with Roe v. Wade, is when America ceased to be a Christian nation.
A truck driver left his trailer behind rather than freeze to death. The truck company fired him. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch sided with the truck company. If you’re wondering, “How could Gorsuch be such a heartless bastard?” you don’t have the slightest clue what the case was about.
If Jill Stein’s votes had gone to Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Florida, Donald Trump’s win would’ve been 280-258 rather than 306-232. In Pennsylvania, had all of Jill Stein’s votes and just under 20,000 of Gary Johnson’s votes gone to Hillary, too, we’d have seen a 278-260 Clinton victory. Dear third-party voters: *You* elected Donald Trump.
“The funniest thing about people who belittle those who own guns is knowing who wins if it ever comes down to it.”
We human beings are simply not angels, as some would like to believe. And the more power we aggregate to a government run by human beings — the more we put government in control of our lives by making us more and more reliant upon it, even for basic necessities — the more we find ourselves in danger of seeing a very human devil take control of all that power.
Because the possibility of a complete progressive takeover of American government is realistically looming ahead, it behooves us to ask, “What exactly do progressives want?” Ask a progressive that question, and you’ll probably get this answer: “Evolution. We want to see society evolve.” But going all the way back to FDR, “evolution” has really meant something else: Call it “dependency”. Call it “absorption”. Call it “assimilation”.
Some people complain about the Electoral College, “My state has been overwhelmingly [political party] for YEARZ, so my vote doesn’t count!” But how true is that assertion? I did some research and, playing the averages, it takes about 25 years for a state to cycle from one political party to the other.
