Documenting Our Demise – What’s Missing From Today’s Conservative Media?
A well-known person recently remarked to me that today’s conservative media is only “Documenting the Demise of America.” In effect, they are reporting on just the bad news, but not doing anything about it, not offering solutions.
The constant reporting about what the Government, the media, and left are doing has caused sensory overload and fatigue. Being constantly bombarded with what is wrong, what is going wrong, and what is going to happen is having people believe there is nothing they can do about it. As a result, they shield themselves, they isolate themselves, they don’t or stay abreast of current events. They have tuned out.
People are hiding in their everyday lives, ignoring the issues, and hoping it goes away. It’s like, rearranging the furniture on the Titanic. But we all know what happens, the Titanic sinks and this country will also if, “We The People,” don’t get involved. This is exactly what the left wants in this county. To shut down any and all opposition. To intimidate the population into submission.
A Republic – If We Can Keep It.
After the creation of the United States Constitution in 1787, Elizabeth Wiling Powel asked Benjamin Franklin, “Doctor, what have we got?” He responded, “A Republic, Madam, if you can keep it” (America is NOT DEMOCRACY). Powel then asked, “And why not keep it?”
Franklins’ response pointed at the men and woman in the moment and in the future whose ambitions for power would move the country to a monarchy. He wanted the American people to be vigilant to hobble these very ambitions, (Think about the Second Amendment). This means we as citizens must be involved.
And that duty requires constant vigilance in the coming centuries. It is the citizen’ responsibility to “keep this Republic,” (Think about the three equal branches of Government). We have a Republic, but it will be up to “We the People” to keep it a Republic.
