How have we gotten to the state of near-civil-war, and how to get back? – An answer to the question of how we have gotten to the state of near-civil-war is simple: while we believed that our freedoms and virtues are under the total protection of the US Constitution and God, our totalitarian politicians were covertly using this belief to deprive us of our freedoms and virtues.
We have not realized this on time and therefore not defended our freedoms and virtues from the government as the Founders and God instructed us.
How has it happened?
We believed in the equality of individual economic opportunities, but they covertly were imposing collective economic equality on us.
We believed in the Freedom of Press as a shield against government corruption, but they corrupted the press to disgrace those among us who fight openly their corruption.
We believed in an independent and honest judiciary, but they politicized judiciary to discredit the opponents.
We believed in the family as cornerstone of all moral national decisions, but they destroyed the family by concocted rights of LGBT against traditional family, wife against husband, children against parents.
We believed in the right to vote for everybody who loves this nation, but they allowed and encouraged voting by those who hate this nation.
We believed that the government was authorized to tax us only for defending and protecting the nation from enemies foreign and domestic, but they taxed us much more for unauthorized restructuring the entire social fabric of the nation.
We believed that the citizens of different races, religions, countries of origin, professions, life interests have the right to live and work in their own unique communities without any discrimination against other communities, but they ruined all that by forcing us to live, work, educate children, create businesses, defend ourselves by enforcing their rules that violate our freedoms and virtues.
And all the above have brought our nation to the state of near-civil-war.
The question of how to get back is less certain.
Even if we elect a MAGA-inspired president like Donald Trump, he/she may not be able to win a war against a mighty government bureaucracy of about ten thousand ‘guns,’ and with no support from politicized military.
