If you’ve been paying attention you will have noticed that the liberals, Democrats, Marxist/socialist have been literally tearing the foundation America was founded on apart.  Our Founders believed that it was necessary to put men of integrity into places of authority.  Sam Adams stated, “If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”  In a letter to Joseph Warren, a Major General in the Revolutionary War,  he stated, “It is not possible that any state should long remain free, where Virtue is not supremely honored.”

Patrick Henry was also one that called for men of virtue to be in places of leadership; Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is impossible that a nation of infidels or idolaters should be a nation of freemen. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.  He also stated: “The great pillars of all government and of social life are virtue, morality and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone, that renders us invincible.”

In 1796 George Washington stated: “Cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the Power of the People and to usurp for themselves the reins of Government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”  In reference to political prosperity he stated: “Of all dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.  In vain it would that man claim the tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars.”

I could go on and on with quotes from the Founders on their belief that virtue and morality are absolute necessities in maintaining a good government.  All of this is lost in the Democrat Party.  The Republican Party is not blameless, but the Democrats have virtually thrown the standards set by the Founders out the window.  They mock and ridicule anyone who attempts to uphold these standards.  One of the foundational bricks of the Democrat Party and their associates is lies.  Outright lies.  In an attempt to discredit President Trump concerning the border crisis the now infamous Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez declared that “Just left the 1st CBP facility.  I see why CBP officers were being so physically and sexually threatening toward me. Officers were keeping women in cells w/no water and had them to drink out of the toilets. This was them on their GOOD behavior in front of members of Congress.”[1]  All video evidence proves this 100% wrong, but they must disgrace Trump leading up to the 2020 election so any lie will do.

Now, we have to keep in mind that Trump has been fighting for funding to accommodate the extraordinary surge of people at the border, but Pelosi refused to fund the problem.  Democrats Chuck You Schumer and Nancy Pelosi refused to budge from their opposition to the border security package during their latest meeting with President Trump. As soon as the question was raised by the president, Pelosi just gave him a flat “NO” answer, and Trump just got up and left the room rather than waste more of his time on them.[2] Also keep in mind that the Democrats are blaming Trump for the “concentration camps” at the border when they were actually initiated by Obama.  The President is being accused of separating families at the border but it is happening because of Obama’s ‘catch and release’ policies. It’s not Trump’s policy. Democrats won’t fix it because they are using the issue as a talking point to take over Congress in November. The media is helping them misrepresent the situation.

In fact, Obama’s staff set up “internment camps” and ordered ‘catch and release’. Children were put in cages but no longer. They are sent to very nice centers with trained professionals. It’s not ideal but it’s hardly a bad place. In fact, our DHS website informs illegal aliens how to evade the law safely. [3] The claim that children are separated under Trump is the policy that was established by Obama.  That claim then morphed into outrage over the Trump administration separating 20% of minors who enter the country from their parents – around 2,000 kids, while ignoring the fact that the Obama administration was also separating children from their parents, while widespread abuse of detained migrants under previous administrations was reported by the ACLU and the University of Arizona.  

One woman interviewed was detained for nearly a month in CADC while she was six months pregnant. She was shackled during transport to and from the facility. At the facility, she was denied monitoring or treatment for an ovarian cyst that posed a risk to herself and the fetus, and received no response to her requests for prenatal vitamins or extra padding for her bed.68 (Her case is described more fully in the box below.) Another woman interviewed was separated from her breastfeeding baby daughter, who was less than two months old, while she was detained in Eloy for two weeks.-University of Arizona [4]

Integrity was the foundation of a man’s character to the Founders.  We were ruled by the rule of law.  Today the law is only applied to conservatives.  Liberals have no regard for the law.  Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders told CBS News’ “Face The Nation” on Sunday that he thought it was “not appropriate” to deport illegal aliens that have broken the law and not shown up for court dates. [5] Representative Omar married her brother to skirt our immigration laws yet she still sits in the halls of Congress. [6] Nancy Pelosi doesn’t see any sense in enforcing our immigration laws.[7] She wants open borders because the illegals end up voting for Democrats and they can only win if there are illegals voting for them.

We used to be a nation that was proud and had excellent character among our leaders but we have allowed the positions of authority to be degraded by power hungry, deceitful people who are in politics for their own gain without caring how it effects the American people.  Politicians like Hillary Clinton (D), Senator Mitt Romney (R), Senator Chuck Schumer(D), Representative Maxine Waters (D), Representative Frederica Wilson (D), Senator Bob Menendez (D), Senator Kamala Harris (D) who slept her way up the political ladder.  There is no virtue in the swamp except for three or four people.  It is our fault.  It is the churches fault.  We have allowed apathy to infiltrate our system and too many people could care less.  They will only care when all they hold dear is torn from them and then it will be too late.
