American politics in its infancy was formed and perceived with a distinct and qualifying world view that needed little definition to the founding fathers. They did not always agree or even have exact goals but they did concur on foundations eloquently penned in our nations’ establishment documents. This perception is the only way to see clearly, with 20/20 vision, the road our founders envisioned for the United States of America. I call those who grasp this concept Born-again Americans.
Andrew Cuomo, the New York Governor,
is a prime example of any bias political intolerant opinion but surely demonstrated
the liberal lefts’ modern embrace of their common narcissistic prejudice and inability
to debate the issues; e.g. “I’m right so you have to be wrong”.
If you haven’t heard yet, Mr.
Cuomo believes conservatives who oppose abortion and gay rights and favor
traditional gun ownership “have
no place in the state of New York.’’ With this said I’m almost
reluctant to admit that I am from, was born in, New York State. But I’m not
reluctant because I know many people and have family from that great state and
they will disagree with any such ignorant intolerance publicly demonstrated. At
least in my new home state of Arkansas, both sides of the political arena (at
least from the area I reside) normally will debate the issues until, at the
very least, we can “agree to disagree”. I have yet heard a public official declare
someone was not welcomed because of a difference of opinion.
The issue with such demonstrated
liberal intolerance is they cannot comprehend there is a worldview held by most
conservatives that drives their moral compass and hold it as the truth. The rub is liberals do not believe this conservative
worldview is right and draw their conclusions from other values. The debate
should revolve around this point but rarely is and most times because those
values are not understood or recognized to begin the debate. Both opposing
sides argue their values are the truth … but neither can prove beyond any facts
learned through experiments and observation their “truth” is absolute. This
is the reason the liberal left drives to silence a different viewpoint, because
it’s easier, faster, less messy and ignores the problem that conservatives could
convince others there might be valid reasons for their opinion, changing the
direction of public opinion. God forbid people find an alternative reason to
keep America within its proven success based on its founding principles. No,
liberals want to “fundamentally
transform the United States of America” as promised by our current
The debate revolves around the
founding of America and whether those values are still valid for today or will
we become another declining nation like all the others that tried socialist type
values and fail. This is where the people of this nation should be focusing any
debate and all the rest will become moot.

prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. It is impossible
