Fundamental – adjective: of central importance.
One of my favorite Rush sayings was (and I paraphrase), “Words have meaning.”
It helps to understand the difference between the Right and the Left. To Liberals, words are a weapon to be wielded to win power. It matters not whether the words are accurate, truthful or meaningful as long as they work to help the Left acquire more power.
“Racist. Bigot. Homophobe.” Just three of the Left’s favorite ad hominem attacks when confronted with an argument they are unable to refute.
Most of the Left’s ideas have been set in stone for decades and have fossilized into caricatures that bear little resemblance to the thoughts of classical liberalism.
President Kennedy’s understanding of liberalism bears little resemblance to the liberalism of charlatans like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Kamala Harris.
Today’s “Liberals” are really radical socialists with their own racist tendencies. This is why you see people like Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot limiting interviews to “journalists of color.”
When President Biden selects appointees based on which boxes they check off (African-American, female, gay, Hispanic, etc.) rather than qualifications, he shows the worst type of racism.
We could go on for hours about the hypocrisy of Liberalism. But back to Rush’s statement about words having meaning. Today, the Left is trying to overthrow this fundamental truth that forms the basis of human existence.
Example? OK, since you insisted.
Families have formed the basic human unit since Adam and Eve. While not always stable, not always intact and not always perfect, the family has been the central focus of human existence since time began.
Changes have dictated variants in the Cultural definition of a family unit. While a subject of debate, society has allowed for same sex couples, individuals of either sex and even polygamous relationships of many sizes to fit the Cultural definition of family.
The scientific definition has remained constant – never changing.
Male – Father
Female – Mother
Child or Children
Since biologically a child can only be produced from a male’s sperm and a female’s egg, this has been a definition agreed on since science began to explain reproduction.
Today’s Lefties, drunk with power and terrified it may someday disappear, are trying to change the definition of mother. This step will allow them to further confuse the language with the end goal being no one can understand any statements made by those who’ve suckered much of the general populace into believing they know what they are talking about. A recent example was the statement made by Democratic Rep. Cori Bush referring to mothers as “birthing people.”
Birthing people today, product of conception a few years ago and…
You know what, I’m not going to give these folks any ideas.
Now, to the issue of Fundamental Change. Since words have meaning, what exactly does “fundamental change” mean?
In the case of our friends on the Left, I believe it indicates a “fundamental” dislike of the idea of the United States of America. Probably, in some cases, a fundamental hatred of America.
Fundamentally, the United States has always been several things:
A Constitutional Republic.
A melting pot where other cultures are absorbed into the uniquely American experience.
A meritocracy where all are endowed with rights – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Now the United States hasn’t always lived up to its fundamental principles. However, this nation has attempted to fix the mistakes it has made. The bloodiest war in our nation’s history was fought to remove the stain of slavery from our borders and begin the journey to equality for all, not just a select powerful few.
The idea of America is what lies at the heart of what makes this country great, fundamentally – the idea that all can come here and chase the American dream and that achieving that dream is available to all.
The Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. famously stated he dreamt of a world where a man was judged “not by the color of his skin, but the content of his character.”
This was an idea uniquely fundamental to the American experience and one Liberalism is now attempting to change.
Their idea is to impose a totalitarian system where rewards are handed out based on an arbitrary system. The goal is to impose a system on citizens where the elite determines who wins and loses.
It’s a system tried before in Socialist experiments that have gone on around the world for over a century.
They’ve failed everywhere they’ve been tried, and they will fail here. And if you’d like to see how quickly they can fail, look to our south to the nation of Venezuela where, in less than a generation, a thriving free economic powerhouse has been reduced to a poverty stricken country.
This is the United States’ future if the Left has its way.
I’m fundamentally opposed.
