In November after the 2022 election, we will know if the tide is turning.


Men, like nations, think they're eternal. What man in his 20s or 30s doesn't believe, at least subconsciously, that he'll live forever? In the springtime of youth, an endless summer beckons. As you pass 70, it's harder to hide from reality.

Nations also have seasons: Imagine a Roman of the 2nd century contemplating an empire that stretched from Britain to the Near East, thinking: This will endure forever. Forever was about 500 years, give or take.
France was pivotal in the 17th and 18th centuries; now the land of Charles Martel is on its way to becoming part of the Muslim ummah.

In the 19th and early 20th centuries, the sun never set on the British empire; now Albion exists in perpetual twilight. Its 95-year-old sovereign is a fitting symbol for a nation is terminal decline.
In the 1980s, Japan seemed poised to buy the world. Business schools taught Japanese management techniques. Today, its birth rate is so low and its population aging so rapidly that an industry has sprung up to remove the remains of elderly Japanese who die alone.

I was born in 1937, just before the midpoint of the 20th century the American century. America's prestige and influence were never greater. Thanks to the Greatest Generation, we won a World War fought throughout most of Europe, Asia, and the Pacific. We reduced Germany to rubble and put the rising sun to bed. It set the stage for almost half a century of unprecedented prosperity. We stopped the spread of communism in Europe and Asia and fought international terrorism. We rebuilt our enemies and lavished foreign aid on much of the world. We built skyscrapers and rockets to the moon. We conquered Polio and now COVID. We explored the mysteries of the Universe and the wonders of DNA the blueprint of life.

But where is the glory that once was Rome? America has moved from a relatively free economy to socialism which has worked so well NOWHERE in the world. We've gone from a republican government guided by a constitution to a regime of revolving elites. We have failed to pay attention to what was being taught to our kids. We have become a nation of girly men.

We have less freedom with each passing year. As a signpost to the coming reign of terror, the cancel culture is everywhere. We've traded the American Revolution for the Cultural Revolution. The pathetic creature in the White House is an empty vessel filled by his handlers.

At the G-7 Summit, Dr. Jill had to lead him like a child. In 1961, when we were young and vigorous, our leader was too. Now a feeble nation is technically led by the oldest man to ever serve in the presidency.
We can't defend our borders, our history (including monuments to past greatness), or our streets. Our cities have become anarchist playgrounds. We are a nation of dependents, mendicants, and misplaced charity. Homeless veterans camp in the streets while illegal aliens are put up in hotels.

The president of the United States can't even quote the beginning of the Declaration of Independence (You know The Thing) correctly. Ivy League graduates routinely fail history tests that 5th graders could pass a generation ago. Crime rates soar and we blame the 2nd. Amendment and slash police budgets. Our culture is certifiably insane. Men who think they're women. People who fight racism by seeking to convince members of one race that they're inherently evil, and others that they are perpetual victims.

A psychiatrist lecturing at Yale said she fantasizes about unloading a revolver into the head of any white person. We slaughter the unborn in the name of freedom, while our birth rate dips lower year by year. Our national debt is so high that we can no longer even pretend that we will repay it one day. It's a $28-trillion monument to our improvidence and refusal to confront reality. Everyone wants FREE.

Our entertainment is sadistic, nihilistic, and as enduring as a candy bar wrapper thrown in the trash. Our music is the noise that spans the spectrum from annoying to repulsive. Patriotism is called an insurrection, treason celebrated, and perversion sanctified. A man in blue gets less respect than a man in a dress.

We're asking soldiers to fight for a nation our leaders no longer believe in. How meekly most of us submitted to Fauci-ism (the regime of face masks, lockdowns, and hand sanitizers) shows the impending death of the American spirit.

How do nation's slip from greatness to obscurity?
Fighting endless wars they can't or won't win.
Accumulating massive debt far beyond their ability to repay
Refusing to guard their borders, allowing the nation to be inundated by an alien horde
Surrendering control of their cities to mob rule
Allowing indoctrination of the young
Moving from a republican form of government to an oligarchy
Losing national identity
Indulging indolence

Abandoning faith and family are the bulwarks of social order.
In America, every one of these symptoms is pronounced, indicating an advanced stage of the disease. Even if the cause seems hopeless, do we not have an obligation to those who sacrificed so much to give us what we had?
I'm surrounded by ghosts urging me on the Union soldiers who held Cemetery Ridge at Gettysburg, the battered bastards of Bastogne, those who served in the cold hell of Korea, the guys who went to the jungles of Southeast Asia and came home to be reviled or neglected. This is the nation that took in my immigrant grandparents, whose uniform my father and most of my uncles wore in the Second World War. I don't want to imagine a world without America, even though it becomes increasingly likely.
During Britain's darkest hour, when its professional army was trapped at Dunkirk and a German invasion seemed imminent, Churchill reminded his countrymen, Nations that go down fighting rise again, and those that surrender tamely are finished. The same might be said of causes. If we let America slip through our fingers if we lose without a fight, what will posterity say of us? While the prognosis is far from good, only God knows if America's day in the sun is over!!!

The girly men will never fight for America!

I hear things like this from the right all the time. It’s always the same thing.
No plan. No inference of how much better things will be Other than Not being like Them !
Everyone on the right is forced to imagine how much better off they’re going to be .
No plans, just assumptions.
We don’t care how we wind up, as long as we’re not like them!
How does that make sense ?
The people who have all of the money today would love a group of people who could tear everything down only to start all over again with the Rich and Powerful Starting out with All Of The Money.
Perfect. Landowners and Serfs.
Sign me up , free me of my burden of Liberty and Justice for All.
One man , one vote,
Home of the Brave , Land of the Free.
Of the People by The People and
For the People !
Sign me up I’m sick of carrying this chit around all day.

I'm hip.
Lots going on that's not any good.
The rejection of God, specifically Jesus Christ, is the basis of the great fall from the GRACE that was shed on this land.
As Jesus dissappears so will grace, and you can see that right now.

It would be in your best interests to stop quoting Jesus out of context. You only fool yourself when you do that.

The correct context is that Jesus was talking about being charitable. He said "When I was hungry, you gave me something to eat, and when I was thirsty, you gave me something to drink. When I was a stranger, you welcomed me, and when I was naked, you gave me clothes to wear. When I was sick, you took care of me, and when I was in jail, you visited me." The people asked Him "When did we do that?" They couldn't remember when they did all of that for him, and he answered, "Whenever you did it for any of my people, no matter how unimportant they seemed,{as you treat the least of me} you did it for me {you treat me}." Jesus was not being liberal or conservative. He was showing kindness. Something I don't think you are very familiar with...

Here is a quote from Thomas Aquinas that you should think about...and maybe remember when you try to quote from the Bible out of context:

"To one who has faith, No explanation is necessary.
To one without faith, No explanation is possible."

Ivy League graduates routinely fail history tests that 5th graders could pass a generation ago. Crime rates soar and we blame the 2nd. Amendment and slash police budgets. Our culture is certifiably insane. Men who think they're women. People who fight racism by seeking to convince members of one race that they're inherently evil, and others that they are perpetual victims.

A psychiatrist lecturing at Yale said she fantasizes about unloading a revolver into the head of any white person. We slaughter the unborn in the name of freedom, while our birth rate dips lower year by year. Our national debt is so high that we can no longer even pretend that we will repay it one day. It's a $28-trillion monument to our improvidence and refusal to confront reality. Everyone wants FREE.

Our entertainment is sadistic, nihilistic, and as enduring as a candy bar wrapper thrown in the trash. Our music is the noise that spans the spectrum from annoying to repulsive. Patriotism is called an insurrection, treason celebrated, and perversion sanctified. A man in blue gets less respect than a man in a dress.

We're asking soldiers to fight for a nation our leaders no longer believe in. How meekly most of us submitted to Fauci-ism (the regime of face masks, lockdowns, and hand sanitizers) shows the impending death of the American spirit.

How do nation's slip from greatness to obscurity?
Fighting endless wars they can't or won't win.
Accumulating massive debt far beyond their ability to repay
Refusing to guard their borders, allowing the nation to be inundated by an alien horde
Surrendering control of their cities to mob rule
Allowing indoctrination of the young
Moving from a republican form of government to an oligarchy
Losing national identity
Indulging indolence

Abandoning faith and family are the bulwarks of social order.
In America, every one of these symptoms is pronounced, indicating an advanced stage of the disease. Even if the cause seems hopeless, do we not have an obligation to those who sacrificed so much to give us what we had?
I'm surrounded by ghosts urging me on the Union soldiers who held Cemetery Ridge at Gettysburg, the battered bastards of Bastogne, those who served in the cold hell of Korea, the guys who went to the jungles of Southeast Asia and came home to be reviled or neglected. This is the nation that took in my immigrant grandparents, whose uniform my father and most of my uncles wore in the Second World War. I don't want to imagine a world without America, even though it becomes increasingly likely.
During Britain's darkest hour, when its professional army was trapped at Dunkirk and a German invasion seemed imminent, Churchill reminded his countrymen, Nations that go down fighting rise again, and those that surrender tamely are finished. The same might be said of causes. If we let America slip through our fingers if we lose without a fight, what will posterity say of us? While the prognosis is far from good, only God knows if America's day in the sun is over!!!

The girly men will never fight for America!
In November after the 2022 election, we will know ... (show quote)


Extremely well written and full of truth. Unfortunately the failure of our society will only find fault as they are the disgusting dregs of the society you complain about. You are absolutely right and if we few left, don't continue the right, the lowest forms of humanity in America will win. We owe it to out descendants to keep up the fight so they will know that we never quit on them.

Logically Right

It would be in your best interests to stop quoting Jesus out of context. You only fool yourself when you do that.

The correct context is that Jesus was talking about being charitable. He said "When I was hungry, you gave me something to eat, and when I was thirsty, you gave me something to drink. When I was a stranger, you welcomed me, and when I was naked, you gave me clothes to wear. When I was sick, you took care of me, and when I was in jail, you visited me." The people asked Him "When did we do that?" They couldn't remember when they did all of that for him, and he answered, "Whenever you did it for any of my people, no matter how unimportant they seemed,{as you treat the least of me} you did it for me {you treat me}." Jesus was not being liberal or conservative. He was showing kindness. Something I don't think you are very familiar with...

Here is a quote from Thomas Aquinas that you should think about...and maybe remember when you try to quote from the Bible out of context:

"To one who has faith, No explanation is necessary.
To one without faith, No explanation is possible."
It would be in your best interests to stop quoting... (show quote)



Odd isn't it that the left which claims neither God, or His only begotten Son even exist seem to want to quote/misquote them. But maybe not so odd...corruption/abuse of power/false imprisonment/oppression/murder are/have always been throughout history the hallmarks of leftist governments...and of the useful idiots they depend upon to force their hideous policies on free peoples.

You like that word nazi and of course you like the democracy. As you claim the nazi is the right wing and the democrats are really for democracy. All the time democrats are using every idea they can come up with to do away with any rights we might have had. You and wood and ruimi and kevin tip top just love to talk about democracy but work every day to replace it with a czar. you and your kind are just treasonous communists wanting to destroy this great country.

Men, like nations, think they're eternal. What man in his 20s or 30s doesn't believe, at least subconsciously, that he'll live forever? In the springtime of youth, an endless summer beckons. As you pass 70, it's harder to hide from reality.

Nations also have seasons: Imagine a Roman of the 2nd century contemplating an empire that stretched from Britain to the Near East, thinking: This will endure forever. Forever was about 500 years, give or take.
France was pivotal in the 17th and 18th centuries; now the land of Charles Martel is on its way to becoming part of the Muslim ummah.

In the 19th and early 20th centuries, the sun never set on the British empire; now Albion exists in perpetual twilight. Its 95-year-old sovereign is a fitting symbol for a nation is terminal decline.
In the 1980s, Japan seemed poised to buy the world. Business schools taught Japanese management techniques. Today, its birth rate is so low and its population aging so rapidly that an industry has sprung up to remove the remains of elderly Japanese who die alone.

I was born in 1937, just before the midpoint of the 20th century the American century. America's prestige and influence were never greater. Thanks to the Greatest Generation, we won a World War fought throughout most of Europe, Asia, and the Pacific. We reduced Germany to rubble and put the rising sun to bed. It set the stage for almost half a century of unprecedented prosperity. We stopped the spread of communism in Europe and Asia and fought international terrorism. We rebuilt our enemies and lavished foreign aid on much of the world. We built skyscrapers and rockets to the moon. We conquered Polio and now COVID. We explored the mysteries of the Universe and the wonders of DNA the blueprint of life.

But where is the glory that once was Rome? America has moved from a relatively free economy to socialism which has worked so well NOWHERE in the world. We've gone from a republican government guided by a constitution to a regime of revolving elites. We have failed to pay attention to what was being taught to our kids. We have become a nation of girly men.

We have less freedom with each passing year. As a signpost to the coming reign of terror, the cancel culture is everywhere. We've traded the American Revolution for the Cultural Revolution. The pathetic creature in the White House is an empty vessel filled by his handlers.

At the G-7 Summit, Dr. Jill had to lead him like a child. In 1961, when we were young and vigorous, our leader was too. Now a feeble nation is technically led by the oldest man to ever serve in the presidency.

You have a gift for meaningless psychobabble.

The Holy Bible and the Constitution of the United States are total mysteries to you.
You've never gotten anything right when you attempt to find meaning in either of them.
