Trying Men’s Souls
By Michael J. Lewinski 01/6/2020
“These are the times that try men’s souls,” wrote Thomas Paine, when we as Americans were faced with great destruction. Our era likewise is a time that tries men’s souls. We are confronted by great political divisiveness, moral confusion and spiritual chaos.
Values like fairness, equality and justice are under attack by leftist Progressives. These people are destroying our freedom of speech through political correctness and also shutting down conservative speakers on college campuses. They are as effective as are the Chinese Communists in denying freedom of expression for their people. The Chinese government recently joined the gun grabber in calling for the disarmament of American citizens.
Equality is something leftist Progressives claim to champion. Ask women athletes who compete against transgender men who steal their glory. White, Christian males find no justice in the equality which is not extended to them. Justice is a matter of fairness.
These times of great political animus are laid at the feet of the Progressive Deep State that is calling all the shots. These elites want to do things that defy common sense.
According to Dennis Jamison, “‘We the People’ need a foundation for rational thought, not just to think about the events that transpire throughout the nation, but to provide a catalyst for action. Right thinking produces right action.” Right thinking in action used to be called wisdom.
That wisdom is embodied in these Conservative candidates who are fighting for us, whom you need to support. President Trump, Mike Lee, Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul. In the House, Elise Stefanik, Jim Banks, Jim Jordan, Micah Beckwith, Jeff Duncan, Mark Meadows, Ralph Norman, Paul Gosar, Randy Weber, Ted Cruz, Louie Gohmert, Greg Steube, and others not running like Senators Mike Braun and Todd Young.
You support them by telling others about them. Tell them about how they are promoting fairness, justice and equality for all. They are protecting competitive, free-market capitalism, the right to life, religious freedom, gun rights and free speech.
