Culture War
Many from both the right and the left bemoan the state of the American culture today. Whether it is the lack of positive images in TV, movies, music, politicians, sports figures, police in schools and more, freedom and morality are discussed as being in conflict with each other. Benjamin Franklin once wrote on the subject: "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need for masters." This should ring true to you today as we debate not only our eroding culture, but the role of government in our lives. Are culture and the need for more government control more connected than we realize?

Trump Goes on the Offensive in the Culture War


We finally have a president willing to put everything on the line.

Whether or not we like to admit it, we are in a full-blown culture war. Every tradition we hold dear is under attack. Suddenly, we are expected to adapt unquestioningly to bizarre cultural changes like the celebration of "gender fluidity," abortion, infanticide, and 11-year-old drag queens. It is assumed as a given that we must force girls to use “non-gender specific” bathrooms, to reward victimhood, and to demonize "toxic masculinity" and law-abiding citizens. And intense pressure is on for us to embrace the destruction of our borders - and to forfeit our right of self-defense. And that is just a tiny sample. It’s all part of the same plan that secret socialists, and avowed ones like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aren’t just talking about openly, but are working harder than ever to implement. To succeed, they must wage a war on our values and traditions, as well as our independence of thought. Although it is to our benefit that the Left's destructive agenda is finally out in the open, we haven’t had a Republican president who has been equipped to defeat this festering threat in more than three decades. That is, until now. Enter Donald Trump, the unlikeliest of presidents, who has always played in the big leagues. He is teaching conservatives how to fight the rising tide of socialism along with one of its primary strategies, the culture war. More importantly, he’s teaching us what it’s going to take to win. This was never more evident than in the president’s recent speech at CPAC. He was relaxed, self-effacing, and full of humor. He was also fearless, never afraid to call it like he sees it, and always willing to show us who he is, foibles and all.
