In 1776 Half The Colonies Wanted To Remain Subject To The King
Back then we called them Tories, now we call them Democrats.

There have always been two kinds of people in the world. Those who had faith in themselves and asked only for the freedom to decide their own destiny, and those who had none and therefore looked for someone else to provide for them or blame for what they could not accomplish on their own.
One hundred years ago, even 50 years ago, the majority of the country still believed in those ideals and felt love and respect for the country and Constitution that offered each individual the opportunity to be all that they aspired to. Remember, I said, ‘opportunity,’ not guarantee.
And there’s what changed things.
The Marxist movements that started on campus back when I was there in the ’60s took root and slowly but inexorably ground away and eroded our freedoms - a little at a time. Sometimes imperceptibly and sometimes laughably but always without ceasing and always with the goal of tearing down the country's faith in the goodness and decency of its citizens and Constitution and replacing it with the corrosive politics of hate, envy, and division.
And sadly, with the aid of their acolytes in the media, entertainment, and Deep State government-industry, they were finally able to achieve that goal with this election.
Now to be fair we will never know if Joe actually received the most votes or even fairly won the contested states. The bulk of the evidence by now has been destroyed or erased. The only thing we do know is that by the best estimates from those who examined the facts, President Trump received 74 million legal whereas no one is really sure how many legal votes Biden got. The best estimates place it somewhere between 70 million counting only verifiable votes up to 80 million if you count contested, mass-produced, and manipulated ballots.
But anyone who had been paying attention over the past four years knew that the Dems were planning this on a massive scale and the COVID scare and unprecedented mail-in voting gave them the perfect opportunity to pull off what they have never been able to do on such a widespread basis.
No, the really worrying part is that even if you discount all of the fraudulent votes there is no question that basically half the country voted for a candidate who hid in the basement, could never draw a crowd of more than a few dozen, and had trouble even reading the teleprompter when he did.
So why did nearly half the country vote for him?
Because the cancer of the Left that has been eating away at the soul of our country for the last half-century has done its work.
The bitter Triumvirate of Academia, the Media, and the Entertainment industry has stirred their hate and division into a witches brew that has now convinced half of the country that America is a deeply flawed and evil place that needs to be more like Europe at best or even Russia or China where the elite and the government regulate what you can say, do, and worst of all…think.
That is what should most concern us and what those of us who still love America must concentrate on.
We need to reclaim Academia, the Media, and the Entertainment industry for America because if the torch of Lady Liberty is extinguished here, we may never see it lit again in our lifetime.
