What ever happened to freedom from fear in the United States? Fear has again gripped America. Fear can be seen in: those who can’t feed their families; those afraid of illegal alien MS-13; students surrounded by leftist riots on college campuses.
“Whatever happened? Seventy years of Progressive education happened; political correctness (or “re-education”); lack of God’s name; lack of personal responsibility; lack of personal integrity and honesty; lack of respect and loyalty to our country.
Did all of these things die along with common sense?”
What happened was the accelerating drift to the Left in our once great country. Progressives, in both political parties, have infected and undermined the common sense Conservatism that once made us great.
You can see these progressive fingers woven in all these things, contributing to our loss of freedom from fear. They twist and turn in the Progressive taxes that siphon off capital needed for private economic expansion. Their hands molded excessive regulation which steadily undermine economic activity. The economic aspirations of millions are dashed by their grasp; economic dependency upon the state contributes to our underperforming economy.
Progressive fingers appear on the open borders ideas which undermine worker wages. Their policies have enabled the child sex trafficking and drug running that feed gangs like MS-13.
The Progressives have sewn with the seven deadly sins of greed, pride, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth. No wonder we fear!
