America: A civilization based on freedom worth fighting for

Our next president could bring us to within a year of our 250th anniversary. Will we still be America united or will we be a destroyed state, divided as during the Civil War?


WASHINGTON, March 11, 2016 — Decades ago, when this country was formed, a new civilization was started. A foundation was laid based on the principle of freedom. And on that foundation a new beginning was built using values as the key structure.

The very idea of this new found life was based solely on this principle, with a very important understanding. To continue and maintain it would mean the absolute pledged unity of the entire population.

Trump and America’s political transformation

The construction of this life was continued and defended by everyone who arrived here, as well as by those who were born in this new country. The true meaning of patriotism was written, recorded, taught and practiced. There were no partisan choices. The people lived for a common purpose, to build a country whose main goal was complete freedom. And everyone worked for that common goal.

Politics today has established a break in that goal. What used to be an incentive for the betterment of future generations has become a partisan war, with each side claiming to hold the key to the best America ever.

And as each election year comes and goes, a greater divide develops that puts Americans at war against each other.

Unity, the glue once used to hold an entire nation together, continues to erode as each political party lays claim to the never-ending battle of self-proclaimed genius. Each party professes to hold the only solutions to our country’s problems, while accusing the other party for the problems that exist.

It is never ending.

The ongoing battle between what many Americans now view as good and evil has caused an extreme divide almost comparable to the chaos between the North and South in the 1800s. What is it that feeds the continuing animosity on such a grand level? Not only the lack of original American spirit and divisiveness, but the lack of unity as well.

Ben Carson and Donald Trump reflect America’s anger

Neglecting to work towards a common destination as a whole.

Such animosity puts a constraint on the progress of a country that is in great need of healing, repair and reviving. Rather than coming together as the original patriotic Americans did, people are allowing emotions and anger to cloud their sound judgment.

Clear and precise decisions cannot be made while fighting over who is right and who is not. Nor can appropriate choices be made by making false accusations against each other in order to obtain favor. Nor should Americans look at the running of our government as means of obtaining and holding power for one political party over the other.

This is not the way our forefathers intended our country to progress. Hence, “One nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.” Today’s dissension will only serve as the downfall of a once great nation.

A unification is desperately needed. America is in dire straits and faces a destruction like the fall of Rome. And unless the people begin to overcome the pettiness that surrounds a politically driven momentum for the White House, that destruction may come sooner than they thought.

Unity means achieving what is needed and desired, for this nation, as a whole body, not as Democrats or as Republicans or independents, but as an entire nation of Americans who want to build a better country and future for the generations to come, a country that was established by the original generation, who possessed the desire, the drive and the vision needed to make this a perfect union.
