A Legacy of Failure
Ignorance of truth does not prevent or circumvent the consequences of failure and error. Worse, once aware of truth, rejection of it indelibly engraves the responsibility for failed initiative and defeat on the guilty. Intentionally, the Constitution is grounded on the truths revealed in science and history. Politically ignoring or rejecting the ideological foundation embedded in it always will result in a legacy of failure.
This past election found America at a crossroads. One road was paved in Constitutional intention, and the other with the lies and deceptions of humanism and the recurrent various multitude of false ideologies / religions repeatedly consumed in the past by the crucible of time. Rejecting true science and valid history, motivated by what they want or choose to believe, the enemies of freedom and justice for all prosecuted the attack on America in the forum of the American political tradition.
Calling to the economic “special interests” alluded to in the Federalist and Antifederalist papers, those representing untruth sought support in the jurisdictions populated by criminals and the undeserving. Sustained by the Framers’ wisdom and foresight reflecting their fear of the popular majority, the Electoral College protected America from the same forces that have consumed and defeated past governments throughout history. Those forces feed on and are energized by ignorance, lies, and deceptions spewing untruth from the seething caldrons of greed, avarice, and injustice.
With executive orders knowingly violating the Constitution; Congress failing to rein in judicial activism; the tyranny and gross injustice of the administrative state as public enemy number one; unbridled capitalism decimating the middle class and robbing American jobs; political correctness dividing and polarizing; sin, corruption, and evil replacing common sense and decency; murder of the innocent and vulnerable upheld; and the list continues; the legacy of failure was supported by the false propaganda of a media undeserving of First Amendment protection. Raising the question of, “Does any enemy seeking to overthrow the original intention of the Constitution deserve its protection?”, seems to be appropriate. In the not too distant past, some would call such political acts treason, regardless of motives and unexcused by the rationalizations of humanism, other false ideologies or religions, or situation or statistical ethics.
Witnessing a political miracle, not unlike the multiple repetitive military, political, and personal miracles displayed in the Revolutionary War, America was granted a reprieve by the grace of “divine Providence“. This past election, at every level – local, state, and Federal, proclaimed a moral imperative. President Washington in his Farewell Address said very clearly “Religion and morality are indispensible supports for our form of government.”. In contrast to recent departing sentiments attempting to ignore and excuse a nearly complete legacy of failure in two terms in the Oval Office, our First President spoke of truth and reality. It remains to be seen whether we as a people, one Nation under God, will protect and defend the original intention of the Constitution by electing and holding those we elect accountable to the original intention of the Constitution.
No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the Invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more than the people of the United States. Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency… We ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained. – Washington’s Inaugural Address, April 30, 1789
