As Republicans gather this week in Charlotte and Washington, D.C., they should present this message to the nation.
Americans are from all countries on this and every continent. We don’t all look alike nor begin with the same culture or language. We do come to this land and form this beautiful American quilt. We learn a common language and join this dream. We form one American family and share one American identity. We do not split ourselves up by physical appearance, religious beliefs, or other balkanizing divisions. Instead, we prepare ourselves, develop dedication, and enjoy the opportunities derived from the Republican Party — a political party that believes in E Pluribus Unum, “From many, one,” not E Unum Pluribus, “From one, many.” The latter defines identity politics, a destructive force in which each racial, religious, gender, or sexuality group presumes entitlements and winds up miserable and enraged when these false promises go unfulfilled.
Do not be bitter. In life, some have more than you, and you have more than some others. Be grateful for what you have, and don’t assume greed in those who do have more than you. If so, you will fail to strive and end up below your potential.
Possession is OK. If not, you would not go to school or try to better yourself. You would not be bashing yourself with self-flagellation and complaint of income inequality or ethnic privilege.
There is a political party that encourages and tries to mask the damage being caused by some rioters who hijacked a decent complaint. These rioters are destroying American cities and wounding and murdering our fellow human beings, both police officers and civilian men, women, and children.
Our citizens and their property are being held hostage and ransomed to rioters. A major problem is that no one can find the grown-ups in the press or the other political party. They should decry this bad behavior. But they don’t. Instead, they see this as a political advantage for their cause.
Do you still believe the rioting is about BLM, which is about police brutality when this killing, maiming, and destruction are perpetrated by others, not the police?
I ask you — who are seeing your country being torn apart or are victims of these rioters: Why do you vote Democrat? Just because you think this will get President Trump out of office? Then what if he is not voted out? In the meantime, are your country’s wellbeing and safety worth so little to you? Are the safety and property of your fellow humans not worth your concern?
