Among its many problems, America has a confidence problem.
It’s what happens when the media and academic elites challenge the very core of your existence. When they wage war on everything- from tradition to values to principles to the founding documents. When they fight to fundamentally transform America. Sound familiar? Of course it does. It’s what President Obama said he would do, and is doing.
The first thing to go is your confidence. It is tied to your resolve. To your belief. To your very existence. Confidence lies at the heart of everything. And so added to the wars fought to change America is the battle to remove confidence in the American people, and psyche. Once that is done, all change is possible. It’s the first shot fired, and mortally wounds.
Think about it.
It takes confidence to be an individual and not conform. It takes confidence to be patriotic. It takes confidence to have faith. It takes confidence to be politically incorrect. It takes confidence to not care what others think. It takes confidence to not believe the government is your anchor. It takes confidence to have conviction. It takes confidence to be a man, and not a pussy.
I’ve seen it firsthand in Europe. Conformity is a virtue. Fitting in, not standing out, not being too loud, just believing in polite nothings- it’s common. That’s why Europe doesn’t do greatness anymore.
It is what has always differentiated America from Europe. Made it unique. Made it indispensable. Made it exceptional. The engine of American exceptionalism has been American’s belief in their own exceptionalism. It’s the batteries in the remote control. Without it, their secret ingredient is gone. And they shrug their way to Belgium.
Is America going to permit a situation where Christians have no voice within their own culture?
America stands at a crossroads. The country must decide. Is America going to be a nation of bullies, forcing conformity while calling it tolerance?
