It is not the land. It is not even the people. It is an idea. That idea is eloquently and concisely articulated in our founding documents.
Anyone who opposes that idea, who thinks it needs to be changed, opposes America.
Anyone who opposes that idea is an enemy of America.
The history of the world is a history of conquest. It has only one form of government, the domination of the unwashed masses by an elite few. It doesn’t matter whether it is a monarchy, oligarchy, dictatorship (military or otherwise), theocracy, socialism or communism. Every single form of government known on planet earth, except America, exemplifies the rule of the few over the many. Every attempt at democracy has degenerated into tyranny.
Now, we are at a great watershed in America. The question is, can we retain our republic?
The idea of America is that the unwashed masses are better fit to determine their own destiny than an elite few.
Those who consider themselves among that elite typically oppose America and all that it stands for. There are many such people in our nation, and even in our government, today who are determined to rob us of our liberty, for our own good.
Are we going to allow it?
