A few years ago, one of Marvel’s most iconic characters, Captain America, did what he thought was right and stood up for his oldest friend in the movie Captain America: Civil War.
Not to go too deep into the movie’s plot, but Captain America’s lifelong friend had brainwashed by sinister forces, but he KNEW his that his friend was still in there…he just needed to be reminded of that.
The film’s action kicks off when another villain enacts his plan to destroy America by turning its heroes against each other.
This villain—Zemo, for all you comic book/film fans out there—provides a quote in that movie that’s poignant, and it seems more applicable to today’s America than in any time in our history. Zemo says: “An empire toppled by its enemies can rise again, but one which crumbles from within—that’s dead forever.”
Right now, America is crumbling from within.
We’re not being attacked (at least not outwardly) by China, Russia, or any one of our foreign enemies. Rather, we are being attacked by anger, hate, and bias from within, and it’s ripping our country apart.
I can’t stand extreme Liberals. They drive me crazy, and their ideologies are responsible for some of the biggest horrors of the past 200 years…
But I don’t hate them anymore than I believe they should hate Conservatives. At the end of the day, they’re simply fighting for the way of life that THEY believe is best for America.
In a way, they DO love this country (even though they chant “Death to America” and employ the same tactics our foreign enemies have used for decades), but their problem is that they’ve been living an easy life for too long. They can’t recognize that they only have the freedom to do and say what they want BECAUSE we are a country that allows them that freedom.
They’re not as lost as they are misguided.
A Different Perspective
How do I know this?
I was with them up until about 2012. I lived the first 40 years of my life as a Liberal—but it was during Obama’s second term (a term I voted for because I bought into his whole “hope and change” spiel) that my eyes were truly opened to the direction the Left was trying to take us.
I woke up, and to say it was a rude awakening would be an understatement.
Imagine waking up one day and realizing almost everything you believed about the world was wrong.
I felt like a ship lost at sea, and so I did what any lost ship does: I looked for a safe port to moor myself into.
I gathered as much information as my brain could fit, and luckily for me, I had a guide in my journey, somebody who you guys may know as one of our contributors here at FreedomWire: Rusty Shackleford.
I learned how destructive the Left has been to America. I learned that it was the Democrats that have done their best to oppress and control the population though I was once under the impression that they were trying to free us from our bad American habits.
I learned that Conservatives—real Conservatives—don’t care about race, religion, or creed. They simply care about freedoms for ALL Americans by allowing the US Constitution to do the job it was created to do: keeping us free from tyranny.
So, after all that, I have a unique perspective on politics. I know how these people truly think, and it gives me insight to what they’re TRULY looking to do.
However, just like they’re too close to the issue to see that their ideologies are harmful to America, they’re too close to understand that, if you keep pushing people who are just trying to live their lives in peace, you’re going to get pushback.
The Coming Storm: Can We Avoid A New Civil War?
More than ever before, regular Americans who were trying to stay out of the political strife are being pulled into it, sometimes simply because of the color of their skin or where they live.
And, understandably, it makes them mad.
So, what’s happening is that more and more people are coming out to visibly and vocally support Trump in response to this pressure—and it’s creating a powder keg that could go off at any moment.
We see this happening on the streets of Portland, Seattle, Kenosha, and other big cities all around the country on an almost daily basis now. Trump supporters are clashing with Liberals, BLM, and ANTIFA in more and more violent confrontations.
All that’s needed is the right spark to start an all-out war between the two ideologies.
We need to avoid this at ALL costs, as this conflict would become the worst war that America has ever seen. In this war, there are no lines of separation, and you could be living next door to—or even related to—your “enemy.”
It would be the downfall of America once and for all.
The problem is we can’t even stop it…not alone
We have to let this play out and hope that cooler heads prevail – because if we don’t, we can say “goodbye” to the beacon of democracy that our country truly is.
That’s what makes this election so important…
It’s not just an election. It’s a battle for America’s future, for its very soul—and while there are two outcomes, there is only ONE way we can continue to thrive…
And you know which side that is.
Get out and vote.
