Personal Principles

You’re personal principles are based in hubris and selfishness, and not a small amount of the childishness we’ve come to expect from Liberals and Progressives, if you feel compelled to place them before the needs of your people, your culture, and your nation.

personal principles are often the principles of selfishnessYour Personal Principles?

Yes, I’m talking about the selfish children of the #NeverTrump “movement” – the people who are willing to allow Hillary to be elected when we have an open seat on the Supreme Court because they’re personal principles are offended somehow by Donald Trump. I’m talking about the people who’ve in order to feel good about themselves, either out of raw pettiness over the primary’s results or out of some delusion of moral superiority, have turned their backs upon America.

These are people who think solely or primarily of themselves and mistake and inflate the value of their own goals, feelings, and beliefs. They do not understand or do not care that one’s personal principles must always be subordinate to the good of the people whenever there is a threat to the latter. They either do not know or choose to ignore that there is no honor in “doing the right thing” when doing so harms the innocent. In that there is only hubris.

Understand that it doesn’t matter if you like Trump; I don’t. Nor does it matter whether or not you’ll think he’ll be a good or even marginal POTUS; I rather doubt it. What matters is that you accept the will of the majority of the American people, form up, and block Hillary’s path to the White House. What matters is that you reach deep inside yourself and find the patriotism to dirty your hands, mind, and if necessary your soul for the sake of your people, your people’s children, and your people’s children’s children. What matters is that you not become the generation that caused freedom to become extinct.

    Although I fully understand your position I cannot support it. The People must be allowed to take any stand they see fit. Under no circumstances should anyone feel they need to compromise their principles to avoid an outcome that others believe is going to occur.

    America is on the stand in 2016 and in my mind its a continuation of our trial of 2012. We deserve everything we get.

    Insofar as what I can do about it, the People ARE allowed to take any stand that they see fit. I don’t have the capacity to punish enough of them to make a difference. However, that freedom does not include a freedom from consequence and those who side against the body of America should be treated as such by the citizenry because there ARE times when people should feel the need to compromise their principles to avoid an outcome that others believe is going to occur.

    Does a man’s forswearing of all forms of violence absolve him of guilt if he allows attackers to go past him and slaughter others instead of fighting them? No! The law must allow it but the people need not do so and shouldn’t.
