(UnitedVoice.com) – America has always been a country of change. In the 20th Century, it was the only constant. Many of our grandparents witnessed it at a pace never seen before in history. Some went from horses to trains and cars, to airplanes and space, all in one lifetime. The advancements were phenomenal. Instead of rapid change tearing the country apart, it brought Americans together as they took pride in their country.
Even during times of great change and national unity, divisions existed. That’s a part of becoming a “more perfect union,” as the writers of the Constitution envisioned. Yet, what’s happening today is very different. President Joe Biden and Democrats are not using change to bring America together. Instead, they use bully tactics that divide. It’s more than a race to undo everything “Trump.” Instead, it’s a competition to see how fast they can transform government and society into the radical Left’s image. In doing so, many wonder if Biden is pushing America past its breaking point. Take heart. There is good news.
Biden – The Great Divider in Chief
During the 2020 general election, then-presidential candidate Joe Biden touted himself as the moderate who defeated the socialist and far-left in the Democratic primary. It was one of the greatest con jobs in recent history. Yet, the proof otherwise was always there. It was in the Democratic convention platform that Biden approved, and it was prominent on his website. Yet, the mainstream media never referenced it, and no one exposed it.
Since January 20, America has experienced chaos at virtually every level. The list seems endless. Perhaps the worst aspect of all of this is the manipulation through the redefining of terms. Bipartisanship is no longer about working with the other side of the aisle in Congress. Now, it’s about using polls to suggest that Republicans support Biden’s agenda when they don’t. For example, in March, a recent AP-NORC poll said 60% of Americans approve of Biden’s handling of the economy. So, bipartisanship is now about misusing polls to suggest the country is bipartisan. That’s never been the definition, nor should it be.
What a poll says right now really doesn’t matter. Biden’s time in office is only a few months at this point. Everyone gets a honeymoon period before life gets real. The polls over the next few months, let alone years, will shift. Biden’s policies are not as popular as the Democrats and the media would have us believe. Yet, they will try to ram far-left legislation down America’s throat. Will it work?
Hope Is on the Horizon
While on the surface, it appears that so much change and manipulation is threatening to break America, take heart. It’s not the first time, and it won’t be the last time. Americans are generally smarter than the media or politicians trying to influence them. Because of internal divisions, Democrats only have so much room to advance their causes.
As the political environment swirls with the radical proposals, there is only so much Biden and Congress can do with a divided caucus. For example, if the $2.3 trillion infrastructure deal were a sure thing through reconciliation, it would be done by now. It’s not. Moderate Democrats aren’t on board. In a razor-thin Democratic majority in the House and Senate, a single lost vote can change everything in an instant. Politicians are proud creatures. They don’t like losing elections. For all the talk of corporate influence, voters still hold the cards that determine a politician’s fate. Believe it or not, they are mindful of that reality.
Right now, 2022 can’t come fast enough for many conservatives. Take heart. It will be here soon enough. Instead of looking at what the media tells us, look between the lines instead. See what’s happening and not happening. You will see the reality instead of the fantasy or the manipulation.
Yes, Biden is changing America, but it may not be a bad thing. He is reminding many of the greatness of our system. He is showing us that no single president can change America against its will.
No, Biden’s not breaking America. He’s showing us who we are and who we are not. Sometimes in history, it’s been proven that we need the reminder.
