The Bottom Line:
The factions that broadly divide our country are the conservatives and the leftists. Descriptively, conservatives find value in the founding documents, while the leftists wish to reject the founding documents. The question becomes, are the founding documents worth preserving?
Our American founders were unapologetic in their quest for freedom and liberty. They constructed the greatest founding documents any country has ever seen. Our founders put years of thought and debate into America’s origin to ensure it lasted for as long as possible. They were careful to debate every issue. Anyone who has read The Federalist Papers can appreciate the level of debate that went into drafting a Constitution. Anyone familiar with the Anti-Federalist’s concerns over a Bill of Rights will realize why America has a Bill of Rights and appreciate its importance. Those who read our founders’ writings would easily see these men were principled and put everything on the line so America could exist and be prosperous for future generations.
The factions that broadly divide our country are the conservatives and the leftists. Descriptively, conservatives find value in the founding documents, while the leftists wish to reject the founding documents. The question becomes, are the founding documents worth preserving? Conservatives should unapologetically argue that the founding documents must be kept and loyally abided by. The Bill of Rights and Constitution establish strict guidelines for the government to operate within. Without them, the government can act as it wishes.
Leftists are always unapologetic in their argument against the Constitution and Bill of Rights. They’re fierce defenders of their position. They’re far more politically clever too. For example, they’ll use political jargon that gives the appearance of respect for the Bill of Rights and Constitution, but their behavior suggests the exact opposite. Democrats use this trick to misdirect the political layman into believing they’re patriotic Americans. They’re not. They’re wolves in sheep’s clothing.
Conservatives must call out the left’s infidelity to the Constitution and Bill of Rights. America needs unapologetic conservatives that model the spirits of our founders. Leftists don’t have any issues unapologetically living out their ideals in the public space. Regardless of how disconnected leftists are from reality, they’ve gained control of the cultural arena. Unapologetic conservatives must shine a light on leftism’s intellectual depravity if we wish to regain any cultural influence. (More On Freedom and Liberty)
