America – Who Are We and Why

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 president.

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.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible."

"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments."
