Are we at last brought to such an humiliating and debasing degradation that we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defense? Where is the difference between having our arms under our own possession and under our own direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?
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.
Your 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.
