Never in all my years running around on this pathetic spit of dirt orbiting a sub par star have I ever witnessed a nation so wholly divided. The
extent of that division is not accidental, nor is it unplanned, it’s a purposeful division brought on by the people of that land.
Yes folks, this great nation is divided, but the ones that are dividing it aren’t the government, it isn’t the proverbial powers that be, it’s
the people themselves. Long forgotten are the things that make this country great, long gone are the things that made this country the country that
people all over the world yearned to go to, to breathe in the free air of liberty. People now want to extinguish the lamp of liberty, they want to rip
from the base of the statue of liberty the plaque that reads:
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Instead they want to put up a no vacancy sign. Instead they want to put up a wall, a great wall, a new Berlin wall. These people want an iron curtain
not unlike that of the old soviet union. They even want to rid us all of our liberties to achieve this goal.
A cancer is in our midst, a cancer known as hate. A cancer that has a cure, but the people reject that cure off hand. This cancer of prejudice, of
bigotry, of racism, is spewed not from our government but by the people themselves. They spew this because they say this is not the country they
remember. They spew this hate because they feel lost in a world they no longer understand.
They see things they hate everywhere, they have fallen victim to it’s spell. They see a President elected by the people, and they say in a loud
shrill Russian accent “He is not the president, he is from Kenya!” But when you ask them for their proof of this claim, all they have to say is
that he is a Communist, a Demon, a Socialist, a Muslim, a Liberal, a Fascist, so many names but no proof.
They say that those that We the People have elected are working against us, they say that they ram bills down our throats against the people’s will.
When you ask them if they speak for you, they cry again “Traitors!” and threaten these people with harm.
They want a Revolution in this country, a revolution that will not come by them, they disparately want to kill their fellow Americans. Reviving that
old saying of “the south will rise again” they project their fear onto the American landscape. Lincoln said once, a house divided can not stand,
and these people are purposely dividing that house, offering no solutions, they don’t want these problems solved, they instead want blood. Blood for
the crime of a nation evolving. This nation will evolve if not it will die. But these people would rather see this nation dead than allow that
evolution to happen.
They trot out the declaration of independence for show, they love to listen to themselves on their soap box demanding a call to arms, demanding that
their brothers fight amongst themselves. Because that fighting releases them from the obligation each and every one of us have to make this country
the best country on earth. It is our responsibility to make this nation the best nation on earth it is WE THE PEOPLE that are this nation and WE THE
PEOPLE that are responsible for making this country the great free nation that it is.
You cannot make a free nation with hate, you cannot make a free nation with fear, you cannot make a free nation by denying liberty.
You make a free nation by embracing your fellow man, you make a free nation by welcoming new cultures into it, you make a free nation not by blaming
the government but taking that government which has always been your government back. You make a free nation by telling those that you elect that it
is your will that they work for you, that you want this nation to be about freedom, about inclusivity about opportunity and about denying hate.
I say deny hate, I say deny those people who would reject inclusivity, I say deny those that would put up walls, I say deny those that would limit our
freedom out of fear. They aren’t representative of America, they aren’t representative of freedom, they aren’t representative of liberty, they
are the destroyers of these true values that this country was built on.
Deny those that would overthrow this government through violence, ask them what they would do afterwords. Ask them specifically what they would
change, find out what they would do.
I say deny the greedy, I say deny those that would be so selfish they would rather see people die than to help them. Deny those that would deny others
Deny those that would hide behind buzz words, that stereotype an entire group of people, deny them of the pleasure of destroying liberty in order to
exclude other humans from our nation.
It is We the People not We the Citizen.
