Throughout recent years, America has been plagued by rampant political correctness.

Informed political conversations and common sense ideas are no longer serving as guiding principles for the American public.

Rather, feelings have been elevated to supreme status, becoming more important than facts in the misguided minds of millions.

Where discussions of science and creation once flourished, colleges and universities are now plagued with widespread bias and intolerance in what many have called an open season on conservatives.

Instead of engaging in factual debates, the left now labels conservatives as intolerant, discriminatory and insensitive, sometimes even going as far as to threaten them if they dare challenge the modern liberal worldview.

Libraries, schools and community groups are no longer places for citizens to expose themselves to the free flow of ideas, the same free flow that is the very foundation of the robust and unique society that we know and love.

Undoubtedly, we are in the middle of a war on common sense, fighting against modern liberals to protect our values and the foundation of this great nation.

Change will not be easy, but we absolutely cannot give in or give up.

We will not always win, and the social justice warriors will tell us that we are on the wrong side of history, but surrender is simply not an option.

In the legendary words of Edmund Burke, “all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

We must take a strong stand against the modern liberals’ attack on common sense by refusing to give into their continued push for political correctness and by having the courage to ignore the false accusations of intolerance they use against us.

The ‘good fight’ may not be the easy fight, but our children and our children’s children are depending on us.

Let’s put common sense back where it belongs and take our nation back from the politically correct and visibly intolerant left.
