The Price of American Apathy in Politics

“Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn't mean politics won't take an interest in you.” --Pericles

By Gary Kelly


June 8, 2020

Political apathy contradicts one’s love of family. Apathy is unjustified when Americans voters are witnessing a growing amount of corrupt policies that are anti-Republic. "I can't be bothered," jeopardizes our family’s future generations at the mercy of anti-Republic policies?

If we continue to rely only on the left-leaning main stream media, we will remain ill-informed and miss-informed, and unaware of all viewpoints, necessary for making informed choices. Plus the negative impact from years of indoctrination instead of the true historical education, that has resulted in an easy prey for Democrat Socialists.

Not voting, or voting for politicians who will continue to “fundamentally transform America” from the Republic into Marxism, by way of Democrat-Socialism, is essentially allowing the deterioration of the “American way of life,” that our future generations may then never know. Should not the prospect of undermining our Constitutional Republic drive us to be informed voters, to preserve and protect “We the people” from “progressive politically correct” elitists?

Are small business owners, minorities, police, and parents, who have always voted the Democratic Party line beginning to see exactly what Democrat Socialism is doing to our liberty and kids future? The "progressive" agenda is for complete government control, cradle to grave. "Progressives" despise capitalism because they do not control the economy. The free market, which is the Democrat Socialist enemy, is responsible for the comforts and amenities we enjoy, like mobile devices. With Socialism, as history has proven time and time again, ingenuity, inventions, entrepreneurship, suffers with burgeoning government mandates and stifling regulations, such as we are witnessing from unscientific environmentalism. “Progressives” attempt to manipulate true science, as their denial of biology reveals.

Is the future of our children worth our effort to sacrifice? Are social media, games, sports, entertainment, and recreation more valuable than family? Individually one must ask, what is my foundation? What do I believe and what are the results of that belief? Is my foundation solid? What do I subscribe to, “anything goes” or, “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God?” How responsible am I? Am I committed to anything that will ensure the American Way of Life for my grandchildren? Do the words liberty, logic, boundaries, maturity, discipline, responsibility, commitment, integrity and respect provide any level of the virtue I possess?

How many have been duped by “progressive” Democrat Socialist carefully crafted terms of contradiction,  such as “investing, social justice, safety, bullying, reform, reproductive rights, equity, fairness, bigotry, and hate?  Or conned by “progressive selective” tolerance, diversity, discrimination, and justice? All intended to primarily undermine freedom of speech and religion. Democrat Socialist rhetoric is designed as a deceptive ploy on our emotions and intended to overshadow history, science, facts, and logic.

Provided below are a few quotes that hopefully will ignite a passion to preserve the Constitutional Republic.

"How strangely will the tools of a tyrant pervert the plain meaning of words!" --Samuel Adams

"Abuse of words has been the great instrument of sophistry and chicanery, of party, faction, and division of society."  --John Adams

"We are apt to be deluded into false security by political catch-words, devised to flatter rather than instruct." --President James A. Garfield

Martin Luther King Jr.: "He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it." ..."In the end we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends." ..."A man who won't die for something is not fit to live." .."Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter."

“This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.” ..."The republic was not established by cowards, and cowards will not preserve it." -- Elmer Davis

"Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say, 'What should be the reward of such sacrifices?' ... If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom...crouch down and lick the hands, which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!" --Samuel Adams

"It is not our duty to leave wealth to our children; but it is our duty to leave liberty." --John Dickinson
