It is often said that a house divided will surely fall, and the same thing can now be said for the United States as a whole. If there is anything that this election has made clear, it is the fact that there is little hope of healing the very deep divisions that exist in our country.
Most of those on the political left absolutely hate those on the political right, and most of those on the political right absolutely hate those on the political left. But it isn’t as if the two opposing sides are even united. The radical left is absolutely disgusted with “moderate Democrats” such as Joe Biden and is very much looking forward to the day when their “progressive revolution” finally triumphs in America. Meanwhile, the right is hopelessly divided into countless political, religious, and economic factions, and there is endless conflict between “conservatives” that are pro-Trump and those that are anti-Trump. Over the past 30 years, not much has actually gotten done in D.C., but what little has been accomplished has almost always involved more spending, more debt, and more socialism.
One of the reasons why the United States became such a great nation is because originally we were united by a core set of values and principles. In the beginning, everything was about faith, family, and freedom. Our notions of right and wrong were defined by the Christian faith, the family was the most important institution in our society, and early Americans were desperate for freedom after experiencing deep oppression over in Europe.
But now we have completely abandoned all of that. The Christian faith has been relentlessly pushed to the fringes of public life, the traditional family unit is mocked while rampant sexual immorality is celebrated all over America, and with each passing day, our freedoms are being eroded even more.
At this point, our Constitution has essentially been relegated to being “just a piece of paper” that sits in the National Archives. It has been trampled on over and over again in recent years, and the courts do not seem to care.
In fact, much of the time it is the courts that are doing the trampling.
We have now gotten to a point where our nation is almost ungovernable. When Barack Obama first entered the White House, millions upon millions of Americans did not consider him to be a legitimate president. Then when Donald Trump won the election in 2016, even more Americans did not recognize the legitimacy of his presidency. Of course, that trend is only going to intensify now that Biden is being installed as president. According to one brand new survey, a whopping 82 percent of all Trump supporters do not believe that Biden is the “legitimate winner of the 2020 election”…
A strong majority of Donald Trump supporters reject the legitimacy of Joe Biden as President-elect, with many citing election irregularities and the most pervasive censorship campaign in American history in support of Biden on the part of Big Tech companies.
A poll released Sunday by CBS News reveals that 82% of self-identifying Trump supporters do not recognize Biden as the “legitimate winner of the 2020 election.”
Of course, if the election results were reversed and Donald Trump was given another four years, a similar percentage of Democrats would almost certainly not be willing to recognize the legitimacy of Trump’s victory.
No matter who is in the White House from now on, tens of millions of Americans are not going to accept that individual as being legitimate.
And thanks to the events of the past several weeks, the election fraud that has been going on for decades in this country has now been exposed for everyone to see. From this point forward, a very high percentage of Americans will not have any faith that our elections are fair.
If people don’t believe in the system, it is just a matter of time before it completely fails.
John Adams once made the following statement…
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
Today, the American people are neither moral nor religious. Instead, we have evolved into an “idiocracy” that is dominated by power-hungry control freaks.
If you go back and read the extremely eloquent things that our founders had to say in their time, you will quickly realize that the way that we speak and write today is completely different. If they could have traveled to our time and interacted with us, we would have seemed like cavemen to them. Most of us can barely hold conversations with others, and when we do it is mostly just a bunch of unintelligible gibberish.
But even though we have been dramatically “dumbed down” over the decades, if we could at least try to get along with one another we could still have a functional society.
Sadly, I have never seen more hatred in our country than I am seeing now, and it just keeps on growing.
You would think that Democrats would have an interest in at least trying to pull the country together, but instead, they just keep rubbing their “victory” in the faces of their enemies. For example, just consider something that Debra Messing just said…
The “Will & Grace” star — one of Hollywood’s most vocal Trump critics — expressed a desire for the president to “live a long life in prison” in a tweet to her more than 677,000 followers last week.
She called Trump “a weak, scared, stupid, inept, negligent, vindictive, narcissistic, criminal” before writing she hoped he became “the most popular boyfriend to the all inmates.”
Can you feel the love in those words?
Yes, let the healing begin.
More blood was spilled on the streets of D.C. over the weekend, and the left and the right will continue to go after one another in the weeks and months ahead. We have now entered a period of semi-permanent civil unrest in this country, and what we have experienced so far is just the beginning.
If we would return to the values and principles that our nation was founded upon, our future could be very different.
But that is not what the American people seem to want.
So we will continue to steamroll toward oblivion, and there is no future for our nation if we stay on the road that we are currently on.

This website has been one of those pushing to divide our house for years. Baseless conspiracy theories, breathless stories about catastrophe and conflict, pandering to the worst impulses- all for clickbait and ad revenue for the site owners. And now you have the stones to pretend you care? Enjoy your blood money, and try to sleep well at night.
Yep, there is a lot of opinions posted on this site that may be a little far out there. But at least we can still express an opinion, and we don’t stop anyone else from doing so. You just sound like someone who craves to lick the *ss of your candidate who may have won, but upset because the rest of us won’t.
“Bill” well said. “How Ironic” failed to get the message about NEVER BLAME THE MESSENGER. In a free society folks may tell you about things you find distasteful – you decide what to do with the information. There is plenty of sand for those that wish to bury their heads, like an ostrich.
Its not so much divided as you think. Look at he vote map, its almost entirely red. Those small blue cities are kept that way because of vote fraud.
A lot more united than we were in January because all Americans now view their government as totally illigitimate…
It’s a little late for the house divided speech ….there may still be some redeemable context from Gettysburg.
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate—we can not consecrate—we can not hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
Lincoln believed that Manifest Destiny extended into a Caribbean, “Golden Circle” of agricultural production, where emancipated blacks would work for the govt.
It would have been considered illegal, if he had liberated four-legged beasts-of-burden, or the mechanical farm equipment.
Republicans are (hopefully, unknowingly) the party of reparations, Reconstruction, and South African-style atrocities against white farmers, even though we’re taught that it means conservatism.
The song that never ends:
Alice In wonderland (1951) The Caucus Race:
HAVE YOU BEEN DELPHIED OR ARE YOU ABOUT TO BE?
All of these steps above (particularly, from the pdf) were followed in a mock trial, resulting in a pretend punishment. The imaginary accused would be put to a fictional death.
As an honor student, having retained my knowledge of the Milgram and Stanford Experiments, I almost flunked social studies. I questioned authority, so looked the part of the bully.
The male teacher had really big hair, on the verge of an Afro, and wore tie-dye shirts to class, yet was a sadistic killer, rhetorically.
I am also never retained for jury duty, though, in what experience I do have, about 75% are dismissed, outrightly, for being involved in the sanctioned caging and killing of other people.
The most resources, by far, are put toward a Freudian death drive or to throttle progress.
Full disclosure – I am a Trump suporter.
I also believe in our constitution.
The political Right is right
The political left is wrong – They want to rip up the constitution.
They want socialism, They want to kill babies, they want America to be ruled by the UN.
There is NO moral or other equivalency between the left and right.
THe RIGHT IS RIGHT – SIMPLE
“So we will continue to steamroll toward oblivion, and there is no future for our nation if we stay on the road that we are currently on.”
No shit! I’m not going to cooperated if this Democrat and RINO theft gets away with it.

HOWIRONIC your absolutely correct and judging by the responses after you posted. There is no shortage of Trumpists who cannot accept a fair election. One thing folks who read this blog conveniently forget is that the U.S. is becoming MORE DIVERSE whether they like it or not. AND Supremacy by one group will not be accepted as business as usual. Another thing people here Conveninetly Forget is in 2016 Trump was elected with the help of a foreign Nation i.e. Russia, dont you remember “Russia if your listening” speech? those words came out of Ronald McDonalds mouth. That with the massive russia disinformation bots amplied the cult of Trump, remember he lost the popular vote by 3 million. This time around he lost by 6 million. Yes this nation is divided but the Left are not the ones calling for open war, calling for civil war, openly advocating for killing their fellow Americans. And you guys call the left dellusional. And Putin is laughing all the way. I remember we fought cold and hot wars against the Russians now the right Loves ole Puty and authoritarian ways….go figure.
I would argue some points with you but someone once told me “only an idiot will argue with another idiot”….
George C., I can’t agree more. Many decades ago, an old guy told me “never rassle with a hog – you just get filthy & the hog likes it.” Besides that, the hog might think you want to rut.
The process has already begun: Our economy is collapsing due to communist lock downs…Our society is now eating itself with opposing sides attempting to destroy each other. Our place in standing on morality, sex and violence is nearing the bottom of the scale of survival. The majority of the population is ignoring all this and only concentrating on “disposing of the other side”. The problem is not that evil is taking over, but is those who are watching and do nothing.
