I’ve become exceedingly efficient at blocking people on Facebook. Not because they simply disagree with me – that would be myopic and narcissistic – but because they cannot articulate their views without resorting to slander, baseless accusations and shameless stereotypes. Constructive discourse is the key to compromise, allowing ideas to stand on the merits of their inherent wisdom, and discovering the most prudent courses of action. The problem is most liberals, and yes a number of Republicans as well, have no intention or desire to subject their policies to the scorn of the public, let alone the discernment of logic. These pious politicians merely want to shove their reckless agenda down the throats of everyday Americans without opposition or reservation. Obamacare, NAFTA, TPP, the Community Reinvestment Act, and Executive Amnesty weren’t competent and/or collaborative pieces of sound legislation. They’re the sole productive of rogue ideologies, naive academia over practicality, to the oppression, impoverishment and disillusionment of the people. This disturbing reality is the very crux of the crumbling legacy between our Forefathers’ founding creed and today’s unapologetic propagandists. One group was comprised of earnest and competent adults seeking strength through diligence and mutual respect, the latter plagued by petulant and unaccountable children plotting to deceive their country and fellow man at every conceivable turn. Why else would our elected leaders refuse to read the entirety of a bill – a potential law, mind you – or fast track its innate flaws for immediate passage? Would you tell a surgeon to behave in the same manner when caring for your loved ones? No, those obscured and malformed details are often the difference between life and death, hope and prosperity. America deserves better.
