For a New Republic

Given the social state of division that is emerging today in our Republic — I believe that a new political definition of our Democratic Constitutional Republic is needed in America today.

I know that it is a tall order, but we must embark on this process willingly and whole heartedly, even if only in order to reanimate our Republic’s beliefs, to purify its motives, to regulate its movements, to substitute the bureaucracy of political government affairs, with the knowledge of this Republic’s true instincts, instead of its blind instincts, and in total honesty — to bring our divided “national self” together again.

We need to adapt this New Republic as an ideal for a democratic government to fit our current time and place in history. Mainly because we need to modify our institutions according to the present circumstances and the present persons that are exercising this form of self governance. Primarily we need to reassert our men and women, on the orders of the day, because such is the first duty imposed upon those who direct society in our day.

The very reason why republican representative democracy has succeeded in the United States while failing in so many other places, is the careful and considerate Constitutionally based application of the basic functional aspects of our indirect democracy. This is the whole sum of the miracle of this experiment in self governance, in these United States.

Yet, it is all a rather fine balance, because the future of the American Republic’s survival is choke-full of threats to our democracy from without, and many probable dangers of collapse from within. And all the most credible threat are centered around the belief that our democracy has a tendency to degenerate into “soft despotism” as well as pure “totalitarianism” from the Big Government complex of our tendency to dismiss the risks of developing a tyranny of the so-called majority.

And as we observe the tug of war between the two major parties, and also the strong role that religion plays in the United States, due to its separation from the government — we cannot help but wonder if those two main parties have supplanted religion as the divisive force that becomes the evil of theocracy. A blood sport indeed, because the much needed separation, that all parties and almost all political factions up to now, have found agreeable, is limited to the stand-off between church and state and is not included in the much more corrosive relationship between the “Big Government State” and the political parties. That is the most dangerous point of inflection in our Republic, except the cult of Muslim jihadists and their Islamic adherents who see the institution of total Sharia law as the only acceptable outcome of their participation in Society. In that evil tiding, they are of course joined by their natural allies, the extreme fringe of the Socialists and the Communists who espouse the dictatorship of the proletariat, and advocate for the forced convergence of our classically liberal capitalist society, to an institutional equality for all. Basically a big prison to house all voices. Indeed these are the two main minorities that seem to admire the industrialization of human beings, and want to institute fascism in order to force the reduction of people, into cog-wheels of the machine instead of human beings. Of course all of these approaches are antithetical to the United States Constitution and must be rejected out of hand, yet they have sadly gained plenty of traction amongst the know-nothing young adherents from the stoner society, and amongst the young children of the bourgeoisie who are masquerading as AntiFa black shirts, and as Hitler’s national socialist brownshirts…

And it seems that the unhealthy antagonism between democrats and the republicans, which relates to the excesses of passion for equality among men, women, and undecided, versus the ideas of individuality as supported by the natural order of variable specimens of humanity, and as found everywhere in nature amongst all the species that are divided in two sexes — foreshadows the balkanization and the totalitarian expressions of the various hate-filled divisions and the rancorous intersectionality promoted by the Democrat as well as by the Republican party of the twenty-first century.

And they both do it, only because they want to keep their flocks of sheeple separate, if they are to reduce their losses to the Free Thinking Independents that occupy the middle ground of the debate, and constitute the vast majority of American people.

Any careful analysis of the politics of our society would bear me out, and also the description of civil society as a sphere of private and civilian affairs that mirror the social paradox of social frustration increasing as social, political & economic conditions improve. Indeed the growing hatred of social, political and monetary privilege, increases in quantifiable ways, as social conditions improve. This in turn leads to the state concentrating more power to itself and the federal government and it’s debt increasing rapidly as well…

Our experiment with democracy in America is still fresh and full of the political acrimony over the abolition of slavery that tore asunder the fabric that held the United States together and led to the first American Civil War. And because the Democratic party always sought control as they were back then, the party of the plantation slave owners of the South, they carried the grudge of the South’s loss in their lust for power to this day. And this has led to today’s polarizing rivalry between the two parties, which has indeed exploded after the Civil War, hoping to litigate their differences in a nasty process of hateful violence that might well lead to another civil war that might have a different outcome or not.

Otherwise a democracy’s equality of conditions, justice and the pursuit of the American Dream, has resulted in some unfavorable consequences, such as the tyranny of the majority MSM media bias over “thought” and the preoccupation with Political Correctness, and the pursuit of material goods, along with the constant effect of isolation and alienation for individuals, who are independent of the majority opinions and refuse to think alike the masses.

Over the previous years the social and economic conditions of most Americans had slowly become more equal and the vast effort at industrialization helped i that respect to maintain the American dream as a gateway to all Americans to join the living standards of the old aristocracy. Yet today as the divisions disappear and as the modern world experienced the beneficial effects of equality — we also have the new moneyed elites, mainly bankers, digital industrialists, and others, that have retracted the development of equality. This has given rise to a number of emerging social strata.

Today’s social strata is not part of the firmly middle class Puritan Founding that established the U.S. democratic social state of equality, but rather it is a newer invention. Mind you the early settler and the founders are egalitarian because they arrived as equals in wealth, in education, and in skillsets, since they were all mostly middle class co-religionists from the old Blightey. In addition, they contributed a synthesis of religion and political liberty in America that was the “seed” of the Federal Constitution, which established the principle of sovereignty of the people in the Fundamental principles contained within the articles and the amendments, simply because this was not found in old England and they craved more Liberty and more Democracy than what they had left behind…

The aftermath of the American Revolution popularized these principles, first seen in the Constitutional Convention of 1787, which developed the institutions that will join the states as well as federally govern and manage the national popular will. While the U.S. Constitution enshrines Liberty at its core — the Athenian Democracy, the Christian Bible, the English mores of the Mother of All Parliaments, the Habeas Corpus, and the Magna Carta, along with the Democratic “habits of mind” of the American people — also play a very prominent role in the protection of freedom in these shores of the New World.

And so today, in light of all that — I’m writing to you, because we are at the throes of a new Civil War, and before we embark on bloody carnage No2 maybe we should recognize that we need to cool our jets and make peace with each other. And since it seems to anyone looking that mostly it is all the conservatives that have been treated shabbily by the mass media, who are trying hard to convince everybody that the vast majority of conservatives are evil — we need to counter that nasty narrative.

Because you already know that Conservatives, like any other population group, are simply everyday people who want to love & be loved, want to live and let live, and hope that we will all get along.

And yet, every day the poor conservatives hear a steady drumbeat of truly disturbing allegations, from the media which presents all American conservatives as uneducated, jealous, racist, war-mongering, women-hating, gay-bashing, immigrant-despising, evil bigots and deplorable, or despicable hilly-billies… But the truth is, they’re nothing like what’s being portrayed by the folks on the MSM and by all the political leaders on the Left, because first, they are not uneducated hillbillies, and instead most are well educated thoughtful people who’ve read and have a certain functional understanding of many the principles of Liberty & Democracy, through the writings of John Locke, Adam Smith, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Friedrich Hayek, Ludwig von Mises, Milton Friedman, Robert Nozick and John Rawls.

And contrary to popular leftist Democrat belief, conservatives aren’t single-issue voters nor are they governed by prejudice or any sort of extremism. As a matter of fact, they think about the same issues you do, but they think of them in terms of how they affect families, neighbors, country, the Constitution, the next generations, and only then, the rest of the world.

And while Conservatives, love American society, that doesn’t mean they can’t look at the rest of the world with interest, wonder, appreciation and pity. They actually love to travel, and go on far more trips aboard than the leftists do. They engage by going on international field of mission trips, and they send long-term missionaries to all corners of this earth. Conservatives do a lot of business overseas and they send help and aid to the poor folks outside the U.S. constantly. As a matter of fact Conservative philanthropy extending outside the US is almost five times as much, as that donated by those identifying as Democrats. And because they value the contributions we all make to the world and they also see that what makes America unique in a different way of living, they value things outside of America too. But they love our country and value it’s contribution to the world stage, because they truly see Americans as the saviors of the world.

A pretty big claim, right?

Well, Christian Conservatives think in grand terms, because they know that classical liberals, in the old sense of liberty, individual rights, free speech, self-determination, representative democracy, and constitutionally protected rights — all came from the United States to the rest of the world today because we are this benevolent empire, that likes to share, and this we must accept as our destiny to lead, and as our Exceptionalism — whether we like it or not.

Free enterprise capitalism, is the system all Americans like because it has reduced global poverty in the last 50 years far more so than anything human beings have done in the last 2,000 combined. This free enterprise capitalism married with the system of classical liberal democracy here in our country is the winning lotto, for all of our citizens and we best aim to protect it’s winning streak.

Also the only true religious freedom came from these shores as well as all of the innovations that have revolutionized the world — internet, satellites, space exploration, biotech, bioengineering, and even the earlier ones, like the repeating rifles, the cotton gins, the telegraph, the telephone, the light bulbs, the automobiles, the airplanes, the rocket-ships, and the microchips — they all came from here. And when tyranny threatened the globe not once, not twice, but three times, salvation came from here too.

But as wholesome Americans and conservatives to boot — we’re not blind to America’s problems either. We strive to get better each and every day, because we all know the country’s not there yet, even if we’re not sure where the “there-there” is.

And of course, Christians and Conservatives hate it that America has gotten things wrong in the past, and slavery is never far from any of our minds. But those problems don’t keep us from greatly loving our country on balance. We know America has done immeasurable good and that the world is better off with her leading at pole position, than without her.
And all conservatives are pro-woman and never want to marginalize women, because on the contrary, they value women, but the way they value women looks different from the way leftists value them. Treating them differently from men is a sign of honor, not disrespect. We all think it’s fine for women to work if they want, but we also know the woman’s role as mother in the family is irreplaceable from either a creationist or evolutionist point of view.

We believe in traditional gender and sexual roles, again, whether you ask creation or evolution, those roles are what we seem to have been dealt, and all conservatives and Christians, are very, very cautious when it comes to modifying the natural order. Seems to me that in any field other than sex, all Americans seem to applaud that idea.

But being cautious doesn’t mean to hate gays or transexuals. What the conservative Christians hate is the sensation of being forced to accept an idea solely because someone else values that idea. I know very few conservatives who dislike gays as people. I know a great many, however, who intensely dislike the pressure society is under not just to accept gay people but to approve of everything they do as well. None of us approve of everything our own fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, sons, or daughters do. Why would we then, ask or even avail ourselves to afford other people’s infinite approval when even our own families don’t get that?

And of course, conservative Americans don’t despise immigrants, foreigners, or other countries. From what I see, conservatives actually love seeing new people come to America if they come legally, and they love America and also if they want to live in this country as Americans.

And you would have to admit that this is not wrong. Because we’ve put a lot of work as a People into this society, and we’d like to see it augmented and perpetuated, and if not, we would at least like to see it preserved.

Important to note that conservatives also don’t hate minorities. It really saddens me that even needs to be said. Yet sadly, it does…

Think about that for a second.

How many of your neighbors are conservatives?

Or work associates?

Or family members?

Do you really think that conservatives go home at night, discard the suits and dresses, and the rest of their civilized facades, and then don hoods, so they can go out to find others and talk about how much they despise people just because their skin is different color from theirs?

Do you really think that?

Please tell me you don’t, and please hear me when I say conservatives aren’t those people. Sure those people exist, but they don’t hide their racism, and they don’t find any quarter within civilized conservative society or inside any churches on American today.

We used to call these people Ku-Klux-Klan and we used to run them out of our towns as soon as we find them, and we seem to remember that it was the Democratic party that founded that organization to control the so called “Blacks” that the Conservatives had liberated from the Southern Democrat plantations during the Civil War. And now the Dems seem to want to re-litigate this Civil War for version 2.0 of the same old bloodshed. But as far as I’ve seen from my perch in America, conservatives actually don’t have much of an opinion at all about individuals, regardless of race or religion. Yet the Democrats and the Left have a judgmental opinion about everyone else, especially about those that are different than them, and about the Independent thinkers.

But there are things that raise the conservative hackles too.
And what they do view very suspiciously is the process of Society’s balkanization at the hands of the Left and the Democrats. That is the process of the grouping of individuals based on unique traits, including racial traits, and sexual choices, and then pitting those groups against each other. And that suspicion turns to downright hostility if those balkanized groups are then galvanized with rhetoric that is divisive and downright dangerous to fundamental American and Western values, whether it’s inter-sectionalism, transgenderism, black nationalism, white nationalism, Marxism, Islamism, gayderism, or transnationalism.

And this is where so many conservatives are genuinely misunderstood as bigots, because although they couldn’t care less what color, religion, or sexual orientation anyone else is — they care deeply that all those who self identify as “other” also support the basic American values such as freedom, the centrality of the individual, the worth of every man, the rule of law, equality under the law, rugged individualism, capitalism, freedom of speech and the press, religious freedom, government subject to the people, and common decency — that ultimately define all of us as Americans.

And many conservatives like Donald Trump, because they actually have good reasons for liking him. When people look at Trump they see someone who’s actually a winner and “rough metaphor” of the personification of the American dream we all love and want to live in. Because of course he is coarse, simple, strong, speaks the warrior language, and he is proud of what his country has historically stood for. Trump also puts the American people’s interests first, and refuses to back down to threats, as he always tries to solve problems with diplomacy before war. There are many examples of all of these personality traits of Donald Trump, but you really already know that, and one can only wish that you’d think about those reasons honestly before you dismiss them out of hand.

Christian conservatives see in Trump an effective leader because he’s getting done what people always wanted done. Rebuilt our Economy. Focus on regulatory rollbacks that make entrepreneurship the lifeblood of American easy again. Provide honest federal judgeships. Take strong stands against currency manipulation from our friends, our frenemies and our trading partners. Destroy and re-negotiate all lopsided trade deals. Secure America’s borders, and repeat ad infinitum, his passionate pursuit of pro-business policies.

No conservative sees in Trump someone who’s racist. As far as anyone can tell and certainly as far as anyone said before 2016, he has always been racially agnostic. In Trump no conservative or Christian sees a bigot. Instead we see a man who has been extremely pro-gay rights, and who doesn’t hate trans people, although he does believe in using biological terms to officially describe people — hardly a position worthy of controversy. Indeed in the face of our Commander In Chief, we simply don’t see a sex criminal, but a strong family man who enjoyed the company of women as a serial monogamist.

Of course one can also see, a man who’s made some pretty terrible moral decisions regarding sex in the past, but who hasn’t done that and been there? And from everything everyone has said, those decisions were all fully consensual and libertarian. He never forced women to let him grab them. He said women let him do it because this is what this type of women (Hollywood vixens) do with famous people… There’s an enormous difference. And we all know this type of women, so there is no big thing “there-there” when you talk about hoes, hookers, pole dancers, starlets, playboy strippers, or porn stars with an enormous “treasure chest.”

As for the popular lullaby of “Russia-Russia” conservatives don’t see a Russian stooge in our President, but instead see the hoax and the conspiracy theory run amok, by a sworn Democrat acting as special prosecutor, perpetuating a witch hunt. As a matter of fact, in the eyes of our President, we see a man with far too much personal pride and yes, a great deal of arrogance and a whole lot of distaste for his opponent the crooked Hillary, who paid for that opposition research that came to be called the salacious “Trump Russia dossier” that started this whole thing and keeps bedeviling our Republic plunging all of us into the second Civil War.

Trump is strong and that makes it rather improbable and perhaps impossible for him to be anyone’s stooge, and we further see someone who’s beating Moscow into the ground, intentionally and repeatedly on the international and national scene, every chance he gets.

Finally, nobody sees someone who’s mentally unstable at all. We know he’s got a temper. We know he abhors disrespect and disloyalty. We also know he makes incredibly strategic decisions on everything from how he handles international policy (NK, Iran, NAFTA) to the manipulation of a hostile media. By our lights, there’s zero evidence of his being mentally unstable in the sense he’s accused of. Mercurial, yes. Unstable, no.

I could go on and on. The point here is that while leftist Democrats have counterpoints to everything Conservatives examine here, still they desperately wish that the Liberals of today and their leftist adherents, would at least consider the fact that all others including the Independents, have their own legitimate reasons to believe what they do, and that they are not evil because of that.

There are currently more than a few hundred threats against President Trump going live on Twitter this very minute as I type this. And according to Mashable, one month after being sworn in, Trump faced 12,000 assassination tweets. Maybe that is why conservatives are now used to being careful and well armed, when they are constantly attacked and told to go crawl in a hole and die.

That started out as baffling to me too because after all, if what I wrote above described you and a bunch of people wanted you to die just for thinking those things, wouldn’t you be a little confused too?

But over time that bafflement has transformed into defensiveness and is now giving way to deep-seated anger over the hatred directed at us because of the simple values we hold.

What’s happening can’t continue. You can’t keep allowing your fellow AntiFa leftists to beat us up, and the MSM to say that those who disagree with them are the embodiment of evil, and the local leftist police to stand down and not arrest the perpetrators of that violence.

You cannot evade the repercussions of your actions for ever, and assuming that we will survive as a Republic, at some point you will be arrested and tried for your crimes.

And again, you cannot demonize and dehumanize those who think differently than you, because that’s the very definition of stupid. But you cannot do that also because we are not evil, and also because some desperate, mentally ill person on your side will believe that, and do something that makes shooting up a synagogue look like Mickey Mouse using a pea shooter and a water pistol at a party.

Conservatives can’t let those accusations get to them or goad them into responding physically, because some “conspiracy nut” will do something a lot worse than sending pitifully made “plastic bombs” to prominent liberals to provoke pity and sympathy for their cause.

As you might recall — it only took a snowball fight to spark the Boston Massacre in 1770.

Methinks that it pays to try to avoid that bloody massacre from occurring again.

But to do that we have to stop this hateful rhetoric now, and if your leaders carry on speaking like that — you have to question both their leadership capacity and the state of their mental health.

For starters, every time you hear someone in the media attack Conservatives, Christians, the sublime deplorables, or those others who voted for Trump, or the libertarian supporters who mistrust the big government, or even the regular independents thinkers like me — stop for just a second and try to remember that all of us are plainly decent people, and that these Ad-Hominem attacks target good, decent, loving people that are your neighbors and colleagues and you might know them personally.

And the personal connection will bring a fresh air of civility to your mental interior discussion, and a sense of abhorrence, when Hillary Clinton says that the conservative supporters of Donald Trump  belong in a “basket of deplorables” and that they hold “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic” views. Indeed this statement came to become a singularly descriptive statement about her, and about her supporters, because she persisted saying: “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?” Clinton said: “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.” She kept digging her own grave by saying that the other half of Trump’s supporters: “feel that the government has let them down” and are “desperate for change.”

Yet you are smarter than that, and you can distinguish the wheat from the chaff, so that you can now start thinking of the Conservatives and the Christians as different versions of yourself, and as the regular folks living across from your home, or even down the street from your house, or working in the next cubicle, or even sitting across the table with your family sharing a Thanksgiving meal — and then maybe you see them as simple humans and you stop demonizing them, and then suddenly you find yourself being unable to call them by those choice names of deplorables and sexists.

Do this and see if you can find the thinking and quiet space over Thanksgiving holiday to speak about all and sundry, and speak about anything else exclusive of politics. Please avoid talking politics over Thanksgiving so that we can give ourselves the time and space to heal and reflect, because all that divides us is rhetoric. And in these times of trials and tribulations, we need to find all that which unites us.

And by refraining from the steady crammed diet of 24/7/365 awful and hateful news on the MSM and all the channels of TV, we might regain control of our brains. And if we stay away from the political rhetoric we may also win a measure of Liberty from Hate, and the Pain that goes with it. Because if we do that, we might find a way to make this awful person Hillary who fully expected to divide the American people by hurling insults — go away for good and melt away like the bad witch riding her broom in the rain.

And for your mental health, I was hoping that some of the people who were going to either be offended by Hillary, or those who were going to go vote for her — all shall get schooled soon enough. Because these epithets she hurled against all Americans, came back like boomerangs to bang her on her empty noggin.

But to be sure, if any of your close relatives and close friends are found to be a bit conservative — I invite you to think and examine if these people match all that crap that you’ve been told by the mass media against them. And then consider the reason that these people were offended by crooked Hillary, after hearing her comments and her insults hurled against all conservatives, and realized that there was a really good reason that they didn’t vote for her.

And now go further and ask yourself this: Do these folks truly match what you yourself are telling other people about conservatives?

Do that and see how quickly you’ll arrive at the truth.

So instead of using dehumanizing rhetoric to turn President Trump and all Conservatives inane Independents into some kind of boogeymen, why don’t you stop demonizing everyone else but yourself and your faulty leaders, and instead choose to stand with other Americans and fight alongside them, in order to better our country?

God knows, we have enough enemies all around — isn’t it time to get together?

Indeed this is the only solution.

And it would be much better for our country as a whole, today and tomorrow to accept that we need various voices and opposing opinions to support our argumentative democracy, instead of only one accepted point of view.

And this is what America means for me.

This messy argumentative Republic full of opinionated people is what I like about our country, but I also like the way that we know how to pull together and help each other, to make progress for all of us, and also manage to find some succor for our compassionate hearts.

Because love goes a long way and although we all know that magnanimity is the way to a Man’s heart — this is easier said than done. As for now we need to remove the fear and to heal the hatred and the divisions, that threaten to tear us apart.

And although we all hear people saying that all politicians are liars and haters, and we have a sense of that being the case many times — we also have decent ones that stood the test of time and have done the best that they see fit.

We all hear the harpies telling us that corporations are greedy and the system is rigged agains the little guy, and we =know that to be true sometimes, yet most of the time it isn’t true. And if you feel compelled to believe all the negative stuff, then you have bigger problems to solve with your therapist than the political incivility that your mama Hillary ushered in…

But what America is to me is that we can say all these things and remain free & unmolested by the secret police, because our Republic allows us the voice of reason and sometimes the voice of treason too…

But to be able to question and argue and challenge the Status Quo; this is uniquely American way, and I wouldn’t trade it with anything else, because here we can make up our own minds in an unwritten social contract that says that when only one official “truth” prevails — everything is broken.

And when we start saying that one leader is a monster and that other person is our savior — we are on the road that’s called Tyranny.

And that would be a real pity for all of us…

Yours,

Dr Churchill

PS:

Methinks that if we stick together, we can do well in this country together, but we need to work together to accomplish this, because if that doesn’t happen, the streets will eventually run red with blood, and your hands will be the cause of that bloodshed in another Civil War that will make the old one look like children’s play…

And nothing could be less American than that.

So because of all that and because our Nation has been going down on a rather dangerous path since I was seriously wounded by a would-be assassin in 2017 who identified with the Antifa terrorists — from today and going forward — I am committed to using my voice to speak out against this hate and division that threatens to tear our country apart.
