These Are Not The Same Americans Who Fought & Won Two World Wars.
These are also not the Same Americans who Stopped the Spread of Communism on the Korean Peninsula, nor the Spread of Communism in Southeast Asia, nor the Same Americans who Defeated the Iron Curtain, nor the Same Americans who Put the First & Only Men on the Moon.
On September 3, 1939 . . . England Declared War On Germany. And within One Week, September 10, 1939, Canada Followed-Suit, and by November 1939, Canadian Troops were Already in England Strategizing & Preparing for Battle.
No One Drafted My Dad & His Brothers To Go Overseas To Fight For Canada.
50% . . . That’s Half of all Eligible Canadian Men of Military Age, who were of Adequate Physical & Mental Capabilities, Volunteered to Join the Canadian Military to Fight Against the Scourge of Nazism.
On December 11, 1941 . . . The USA Declared War On Germany.
Germany Surrendered On May 8, 1945 . . . Japan Surrendered On August 14, 1945. And during the Beginning to the End . . . Canadians & Americans did whatever they had to do to WIN.
There Was No Question Nor Debate About Sacrifice. Canadians & Americans Lived with Severe Rations & Shortages, and Learned how to do Without. . . Because our Way of Life was at Risk, and the Nazis & Japanese had to be Stopped. And That’s All That Mattered.
And What About – “Ask Not What Your Country Can Do For You . . .?” – JFK
Americans & Canadians Organized Everything from Victory Gardens, to War Bond Fundraisers & Associations Created to Send Care Packages to our Troops. We Saw a Common Enemy & Came Together Within our Respective Nations.
And There Was Rosie The Riveter . . . A Real Woman – Unlike Today’s LEFTIST Women, who Want to be Men With Boobs, at a Time when Real Women during WWII did Whatever had to be Done to Support their Flag, their Country, their Sons, Brothers, Fathers, Husbands, Relatives & Friends . . . Who Went To Fight & Give It Their All.
As I See It . . . The Last Of The Patriots Were The Boys Of 9/11 – Who After the Attacks on New York City & the Pentagon, who in Substantial Numbers Put-Their-Lives-On-Hold & Signed-Up to Deliver a World of Hurt to those who Hurt America.
I Can’t For The Life Of Me – Fathom how the Average American is Not Running To Bar The Gates of America’s Borders from the Invaders . . . Who, if not Stopped, the Invaders will Turn America Upside Down & Inside-Out . . . Rendering The American Dream Into An American Memory.
It’s Not That President Trump Isn’t Getting Support From Congress . . . It’s that Congress is Doing all that it Can . . . To Stop The President Of The United States Of America – From Keeping America Exceptional.
The Democrats Want To Get Rid Of ICE . . . Why?
The Democrats Refuse to Acknowledge that there is a Crisis at the Southern Border, since the Only Crisis the Democrats can see, as the Democrats have Promoted Repeatedly – IS THAT THERE’S ONLY A CRISIS AT THE BORDER MADE BY “TRUMP”.
And In-Spite Of Every Roadblock Put In President Trump’s Path, whether it is President Trump’s Executive Orders, which are Supplanted by UNELECTED LEFTIST JUDGES, or by the Refusal of Congress to Fund the Wall, or Pass an Equitable Immigration Law Favorable to America, or to do What has to be Done to get the ILLEGALS OUT, Including those Illegals who are Felons . . . President Trump Still Marches On For American Exceptionalism.
Between the Democrats, their Media-Lapdogs, Big Business and some Republicans, Including Republicans like Senators Chuck Grassley & Joni Ernst, who I thought were Stalwart Conservatives above Politics (I Guess I Was Wrong) . . . It Seems that the Earth is Going to Stop Rotating & America will go Bankrupt, Because President Trump is Putting Mexico’s Feet To The Fire, Because the Democrats Won’t do a thing to Stop the Barbarians At The Gate . . .
And When The Republicans (Ryan) Held The House . . . They Did Nothing Either.
If President Trump Puts A 5% Tariff On Mexican Goods At The US Border . . . Costs to American Consumers will become Unaffordable . . . That’s BS – Period!
The Real Truth – Not The Propagandized Truth . . . is that the Tariff will be Placed on the Wholesale Cost. So, if an Importer brings Goods into the States, which Costs $1, The 5% Will Only Add 5-Cents (A Nickel) To The Import Price.
Can Anyone Reading This Editorial – Ever Not Remember Seeing . . . a Price at a Store or Online, That Didn’t Say . . . As Much as 60%-Off. Or BOGO (Buy One Get One)?
So . . . Please Tell Me How The Consumer Gets Hurt?
The Importer is going to Suffer Some Pain, and Won’t Make as Many Millions of Dollars as He or She would Otherwise Make, because His or Her Product will Cost 5% More at the Import (Wholesale) Cost. But since the Importer Isn’t Employing People at Home, or Paying Into the National, State or City Treasuries . . . WHO CARES?
As I Wrote In The Preceding . . . There was a Time when Americans were Patriots, & Understood that Every Now & Then they would have to Sacrifice Some for the Good of the Nation – But That Time Seems To Be Long Past.
“Ask Not What Your Nation Can Do For You – Ask What You Can Do For Your Nation” . . . Yet Another Americanism Seemingly Long Lost.
