On February 27, 1860, Abraham Lincoln, before he became the Republican nominee for the presidency at the GOP convention scheduled for May, spoke in New York at the Cooper Institute.
He addressed the policy of the Demoncratic Party. He said, “Your purpose, then, plainly stated, is that you will destroy the Government, unless you be allowed to construe and enforce the Constitution as you please, on all points in dispute between you and us. YOU WILL RULE OR RUIN IN ALL EVENTS.”
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Ask yourself, how many of the foreigners Trump is trying to negotiate with are holding out hoping that Trump will be weakened by all the opposition of the Demoncrats and, yes, even some Republicans, so that they might be able to get a better deal? Or that they might get to bulldoze Biden for a real sweet deal?
A number of years earlier Lincoln addressed the Young Men’s Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois on January 27, 1838, in a speech titled “The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions.” In this speech, Lincoln spoke about the dangers of slavery in the United States, as the institution could corrupt the federal government. Lincoln warned that mobs or people who disrespected U.S. laws and courts could destroy the United States. He went on to say the Constitution and rule of law in the United States are “the political religion of our nation.”
He told them, “From whence shall we expect the approach of danger? Shall some trans-Atlantic military giant step the earth and crush us at a blow? Never. All the armies of Europe and Asia…could not by force take a drink from the Ohio River or make a track on the Blue Ridge in the trial of a thousand years. No, if destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men we will live forever or die by suicide.”
In the late 1940s or early 50s, the leaders of the USSR realized the same thing. But they did not give up. The created a long term plan that would come close to fruition after the USSR had, itself, fallen. Their plan was ingenious. Most of the government leaders in the US came out of our colleges. The key then was to turn the college students to a believe a false and very negative narrative to be be perpetuated in every academic arm of our high schools and colleges.
How do you change the high schools? You take over the teacher training programs of the colleges. How do you get the media to assist in turning college students to their policy? You take over the journalism programs. Scientists? Social Services? You must take over all those programs. They began small. They used what influence they could exert to get commie professors into teaching positions, then leadership positions. They worked always together to create fellow travelers and then promote them into positions of greater and greater power. “While America Slept” they took control of every aspect of academics and media they could. They were assisted by fellow travelers from Hollywood which had long been infiltrated by the commies.
What proof have I? You need only look at those institutions and the people who run and populate them. This day we are on the edge of losing our country to these communist monsters. I’m pretty sure Biden is just a less left wing front for these people. If he is elected something will happen to him to put the most “progressive” member of the Senate into the Oval Office.
What can we do? Some of my fellow Christians believe that a great awakening of the Church will save us. I would like to believe that, but how long will God tolerate our national disgrace of abortion, approval of the homosexual lifestyle – even by the Church – and the total rejection of God’s Law by the majority of the population?
Of a few things I am quite certain. Our only hope is to do the following: Pray, pray and pray more. Be a good citizen – vote and get active. Our problems start in elementary school and progress through grade 12. All the teaching done in those years is controlled by the local school board. People on Facebook periodically are outraged by drag queens reading about homosexual relations or some such nonsense. That happens ONLY because the local school boards are dominated by outright commies or “progressive” fellow travelers. Find out what you need to do to replace these monsters and start doing it. Somewhere along the line someone gets elected and enables these monsters. Find out who that is and work against them. KICK THEM OUT.
Fixing the colleges is much more complicated because they are usually run by the State or a private organization and not local politicians. What control can be exerted on State colleges must come from pressure on elected State officials. But, again, YOU MUST GET EDUCATED AND ACTIVE in your citizenship. If you don’t please stop crying and moaning on Facebook about the mess we’re in today.
