OPINION:

No other country on the face of the Earth has been more blessed by God than America. Our nation’s birth was a monumental upset over the most powerful country in the world at the time. Our Founding Fathers risked everything for our independence — their fortunes, their freedom, their lives and the lives of their families. What were they fighting for? Independence and self-rule. The colonists believed the price for freedom was worth the sacrifice.

Fast-forward to today. We have politicians who rampantly lie. There is open corruption in our federal government. A recent example is Democrats in Congress wanting to reward Speaker Pelosi for her ‘hard work,’ saying she deserves $200 million for a park in her hometown.


These people are so arrogant and emboldened they don’t even see a problem with their actions. We have elected officials in Congress openly wanting to tear America down. It was then-candidate Kamala Harris who in 2020 encouraged people to donate to bail out rioters, looters and arsonists in Minneapolis. It was Democrats who demonized the police and wanted to defund police departments all across America.

We have educators teaching children to hate their own country and each other because of the color of their skin. We have people more interested in killing babies than in protecting our children on our own violent streets in dozens of large cities.

America, is this really what you want?
