This is to present the American public with the Truth! Far too often a story is told without the back story made apparent, leading to a lack of insight for a proper perspective.
Knowledge, Wisdom, & Insight help to understand the Truth in any given situation. Also understanding the character of the people involved is neccessary. This author of Truth The Political Answer Dangerous Times Ahead, Two Truths Two Justices, America The lightning Rod of Freedom Our Survival, endeavors to present this fact & scriptures to live by that relate to each article. Character is the signpost to the road people travel. If you understand their character it is apparent what they will do in the future! The fruits of a persons character reveals all, Matthew 7:16.

Choice brings many things. Depending on our choice it can be liberating, or devastating. Choice demands a measure of sacrifice in each persons’ life in achieving the right consequence relating to the ultimate justice.
Establishing a strong nation and government brings to mind a question. Can you stand on principles that reflect truth, honor, and Godly principles ? Our Constitution was established on such a question. The choice was to establish a Constitution on these very principles which have yielded an answer 237 years later. The result being peace, liberty, and freedom, not without the sacrifice of many patriots that stayed steadfast in allegiance to this country.
A strong nation can only be held together with the proper glue, that being the allegiance of its citizens’. Everyone wishing to become a true American citizen takes such an Oath of Allegiance. The following is the oath…..
I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States whenrequired by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God………………
Other oaths are taken to preserve the state of the nation in our military ensuring a specific action not only for the military, but throughout one’s life. This oath states…….. I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.
A uniqueness is realized when compared to the oath for citizenship. Now let’s take a look at the oath of office of the Presidency…… I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States……So help me God !
The realization of these oaths are taken because of choice. The common denominator is to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America. The wording, passion, and dedication of the person taking the oaths’ will preserve our Nation; unless there is a reversal of character, or if the oath was taken under false pretenses. It is necessary to understand that the character of the person taking the oath will determine whether it is upheld.
We have seen many examples of citizens’, soldiers, and political figures that have violated these oaths on an ongoing basis. Since character is the signpost to the road people travel, it is imperative that we look to this area determining the future actions of the those taking oaths.
Just as there are two truths and two justices, you might think that there would be two sides to these oaths, but that is not the case. Why ? It is the exact wording of each oath that prevents any doubt. Words do have meaning ! In today’s political landscape the attention regarding these oaths has been dissipated. This is why the American people need to keep their eyes’ on what made this country great. Back to basics, if you will.
More to the point, it has been political correctness, linked to tolerance and diversity causing a major portion of what we are witnessing today ! Tolerance and diversity are several earmarks of a civilized nation. When they are used as political correctness tools they cease to be of benefit to a society. Political correctness can become a thread that fashions its way through the fabric of a society. So the question is how much tolerance is expected of a culture and what type of diversity should be allowed?
Webster’s Dictionary defines tolerance as, ” the act or capacity of enduring; a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward opinions and practices that differ from one’s own.” As the definition states it is the enduring to the point of fairness. This would include all that is fair regarding an action up to the limits of our laws, traditions and morals. When those lines are crossed then a culture is no longer bound to accept being tolerant. This is why people that come to this country need to adopt our ways rather than the other way around. Much can be said about diversity, but the main point is that as long as it is positive in nature and not negative, it will be welcomed.
The misuse of tolerance and diversity leads to political correctness and infects the judgement of its people so that a proper evaluation in a situation becomes clouded. This tool is used by various groups assisting them to achieve incremental goals based on their broader objective because it is a form of thought control, rendering its victims inactive. This is nothing more than Communist inspired social engineering, traits that we see emerging in the radical Islamic Movement.
We as citizen soldiers need to act in a manner that doesn’t involve this PC attitude. We as a society need to disband this attitude for the betterment and survival of our nation. Political correctness can one day cost more lives than what we saw on 9/11 if not brought into the realm of common sense.
Tolerance should end when there are blatant violations of moral, legal, and Constitutional principles. Diversity is welcomed when it is of a positive nature. Negative diversity will only destroy what it has taken 237 years to establish. History being the teacher has imparted knowledge to us supporting this fact.
Tolerance and diversity are better understood by people that possess wisdom, understanding, knowledge, and most important INSIGHT.
Wisdom is the first step and is described as knowing the difference between right and wrong. Understanding is the next element that establishes the nature and perspective of a persons character, applying their wisdom. Knowledge is the key element that enables a person to ascertain information that is credible in reaching a fair and just decision. The last attribute is insight. Webster defines insight as, “penetrating mental vision or discernment; faculty of seeing into inner character or underlying truth.” This accounts for the lack of judgement that Obama, Pelosi, and Reid exhibit in their decision making as they can’t understand underlying truth.
This is the reason they try to demonize conservatives by accusing them of doing what they have done in the past, present, and will do in the future. Every destructive legislation has come out of the party considered to be Democratic, but has been taken over by the Socialist movement.
Reaching back into the past it appears that the Democratic / Socialist party has lessened our freedoms while trying to create a shroud of global government. One of the best examples of this was seen from Bill Clinton in the implementation of NAFTA. If not for NAFTA the planned NAFTA Super Highway would not be built. This highway will radically reconfigure not only the physical landscape of the United States, but our political and economic landscapes as well. NAFTA will prove to be one of the worst decisions coming out of Congress under the direction of Bill Clinton. If this highway is allowed to be built the American people will see a loss of freedom struggling for independence due to the loss of our borders. It will be a loss of our borders because the first check point for the highway coming north will be Kansas City, Mo. Checkpoints designate borders ! Since Kansas City, Mo. is about 1000 miles north of the Mexican border, how easy would it be for terrorists to enter ?
What Socialists like Bill Clinton, Barrack Hussein Obama, etc. understand is the direction that We The People will take. They trust us to stand up for the Constitution as they are trying to destroy it. Consequently, there will be a tremendous battle in the future, which they are anticipating. Likewise, we the conservatives should understand and prepare for this as well. Our preparation is instilled in putting conservatives in office that will stand up for the Constitution.
