To Whom Do You Want To Entrust Your Well-being?

By Michael Lewinski 02/05/14

I believe it was Sam Adams who said in essence at the close of the 18th century that the American war was over, but the revolution was just beginning and was in its earliest phase. At the beginning of the 21st century, we find ourselves at a juncture in history where the final act in the American Revolution could finally be playing out in the struggle between those who believe individuals should control their destiny and those who believe it should be determined by the state.

During the Revolutionary War it is estimated that one third of the population supported the revolution, one third supported the crown, and one third was disengaged. Americans have always been divided on important issues. It is no different today, with Conservative patriots representing the revolutionary spirit and Progressives promoting the Tory Statists perspective, while large numbers of Americans are disengaged regarding the struggle for America’s soul.

President Obama, when first elected, promised to fundamentally transform America. In pursuit of his Progressive vision for America, we are learning that the autonomy of the individual and the role of civil society are being diminished while the authority and control of the State grows evermore intrusive into the lives of is citizens.

An example of this was provided by Presidential adviser, John Podesta. In a discussion of the Common Core standards he asked, “Why should some towns and cities and states have no standards or low standards and others have extremely high standards when the children belong to all of us and would move [to different states in their educational lives]?”

Have you got that? Our children don’t belong to themselves or their parents. They are available to serve the interests of the collective. This is the whole thrust of the Progressive Tories’ vision for America.

Which America are you striving to leave for the benefit of your children? With whom do you stand? Which is your cup of tea? The Tories, the Patriots, or one of the many who can’t look beyond today and could care less?
