Is America Worth Fighting For, Rather than About?

“If this man loses, they will unleash a tidal wave upon this nation unlike any we have ever seen. It is our fight for America; it is the battle that we all must fight together. And as flawed as Donald Trump is, he’s all we’ve got between us and the mobs. It’s that simple.” — Michael Savage

Personally, I’m tired of all the fighting. But, I’m also not willing to readily give up America’s optimism or freedoms. Are you?

In a few days, final votes will be cast that may determine the future health of our nation. Will there be more blatant disregard of our laws — whether in immigration, sanctuary cities, looting, burning, tearing down statutes, attacking the police, destroying our communities, and ignoring the safety of our citizens? Will the unwarranted blame for injustices of the past, continue damning us to stay stuck there?

True, there’s not much to choose from as far as candidates, but as far as ideology, there’s a country to lose.

Drawing of yin and yang symbol, the Taijitu

Seeing All Sides
Long ago, the Taijitu taught me that nothing is 100%. I do not believe Trump is 100% good but I also do not believe he is 100% bad. This president works tirelessly without compensation to benefit “we the people” even in the midst of the Democrats’ nonstop distractions to thwart his presidency.

Since Trump’s 2016 election I’ve often heard,”There is nothing the Far Left won’t do to take down our President, our country, and us…” The last four years, and particularly 2020, underscore this truth, and forecast how rabid they will become if they lose again. If the Dems sincerely want America to be the best it can be, why do they object to everything Trump does to improve American life? Why is their message about America so negative?

Finding Facts to See Clearly
How warped things are when living in a country that promotes free speech, yet most information is distorted and differing opinions are shouted down. (Personally, I’d also add in political correctness to the problem but that’s another story.) This election is too important to lazily rely on mainstream or social media for facts.

Do you even know of Trump’s accomplishments or appreciate the campaign promises he’s kept, unlike most politicians? Have you looked at proven records and noticed his interminable strength? Ask the basic questions that governed years of unbiased reporting and police investigation for truth seeking:

Who have the Democrats truly fought to protect when they have a history and continue enslaving people of color with welfare programs, and messages of entitlement and victimization rather than empowerment?

What have the Democrats done to help make America the best, to unify Americans by accepting and acknowledging “our” President as the President of the United States?

When will the Dems truly care about all people, and stop promoting division through the Race Card?

Where is the protection for citizens when looting, burning and lawlessness are allowed to run rampant in Democrat controlled cities?  

Why do Democrats want illegal immigrants voting in our election, many of whom have arrived from corrupt third world countries with no regard for our freedom, laws or culture?

How will America fare if the Dems satisfy their unquenchable thirst for complete power as a one party state like California, China and Russia? Hint: Take a peek at California’s demise.

Then ask yourselves these questions, if you are courageous enough to consider the answers:

1. What has Joe Biden done for America for the last 47 years in public office?

2. What did Joe Biden ever do for the black community, employment rates, and contributions to black colleges when he and Obama were in office?

3. What has Joe Biden ever done in his entire life to create a private-sector job?

4. What has Joe Biden done to help the American working class and middle class workers?

5. What has Joe Biden done to balance responsibly America’s need for independent petroleum power with American ecological duties of care?

Acceptance and Working Together
These are brutal questions but the answers are more truthful than what the Democrat controlled Hollywood, mainstream and social media will tell.

“…In the new term as president, we will again build the greatest economy in history, quickly returning to full employment, soaring incomes and record prosperity. We will defend America against all threats and protect America against all dangers. We will lead America into new frontiers of ambition and discovery, and we will reach four new heights of national achievement. We will rekindle faith in our values, new pride in our history and a new spirit of unity that can only be realized through love for our great country. Because we understand that America is not a land cloaked in darkness. America is the torch that enlightens the entire world.” — President Trump, at 2019 RNC

In all fairness, have you ever listened to Trump’s inspirational messages and vision for our country? Or have you closed your mind to any good thing he does, out of blind acceptance for only what is reported — regardless of the objective grounds proving those accomplishments?

You gotta’ at least give Trump credit for defeating Isis when Biden’s Obama administration ignored terrorism, and acknowledge Trump’s worked hard to bring back jobs which are what feed you and your family.

Just imagine how much more this country could have accomplished over the past four years if the Democrats worked with the President to improve education and the economy, confront the coronavirus, clean-up inner cities where Trump has created opportunity zones, job training etc. — instead of fighting him all the way?

If you haven’t started asking yourself any of these questions, maybe you should if you care about freedom and the future health of this country. I am not voting for or against Donald Trump. I am voting for America and the American values that I cherish.

  1. Thank you for your courageous but sincere comment, Lisa. I’ve worked the polls before. It should prove an interesting experience for you and even more in this election. I, too, am praying for our leaders and out nation. God bless you too.

  2. I agree with you 100%. I am easily able to see through President Trumps cocky attitude and, in my opinion, not so appropriate comments. I want what he wants for our nation. I want what he has already done for this nation. And I want the FREEDOM to live, worship, work, speak and go where and how I want to. It is not the person, as you say, it is what the person will do for me and for my nation. I love America. I love what our nations stands for (or what it used to stand for). I will pray for our leaders (all sides, because all are God’s people), I will pray for our nation, and I have already voted. This year I also decided to be a poll worker on Tuesday, this will be a new experience for me.
    Thank you for boldly posting your perspective! 🙏🏻
