Reality is fixed. So is morality. Morality is the social form of reality.
Objective Truth, i.e., Reality, is completely independent of the human mind. Reality cannot be changed; it may only be thought of differently, and erroneously. "Discoveries", if they be true, involve new realities previously unknown. They do not and cannot involve changes to fixed reality, or proper recognition of any change, in the absence of incontrovertible scientific proof. Man is not the master of reality.
Much of Objective Truth is naturally known; it is "written on the heart" of man, as Natural Law; it is generally instinctively known, and widely recognized as "Common Sense". In absolute agreement with this Natural Law is the Revealed Truth of Judaeo-Christian Religion, revealed to man by God, which, historically, formed the solid foundation of Western Civilization. And Western Civilization must be historically recognized as the most moral, civil, advanced and prosperous form of human civilization, except for whenever and wherever it went off the Judaeo-Christian religious rails.
Abandoning God necessarily means abandoning Reality.
The birth and development of the United States of America, thus far in history, has exemplified the very best example of a Western Civilization culture, certainly the most successful and advanced, and the most moral, at least for her first hundred years or so. Even in spite of her most glaring imperfections, the USA out-shined every other historical nation in citizen liberty and prosperity, economic wealth, charity and good neighborliness.
Examination of her founding Declaration of Independence shows that she was carefully founded upon Natural Law citizen rights, and that her Constitutional government was carefully formed to reinforce, strengthen and not restrict the citizenry's free worship, practice and exercise of any of her many preexisting Colonial Christian denominations which were already fixed in Colonial law, or any other denominations that might appear.
That was the Judaeo-Christian foundation that made America great.
But, of course, that was then, and this is now. Today, the American government, all three branches, quite consistently opposes the ancient morality of Western Civilization, and opposes even to the point of suppressing Judaeo-Christian morality. Other religions are tolerated, but Christianity is openly opposed; the only religion strongly defended by the American government today is Islam, possibly the only "religion" on earth irrevocably sworn to either dominate or destroy America and everything she stands for. That, they protect.
Today, our Marxocrat Party champions everything from artificial contraception to aborting people to advancing sodomite culture to transgenderism to pornography to significant-otherhood to promiscuity to every imaginable and unimaginable form of sexual licentiousness. They are obsessed with it. So are the courts. All of these "items" now have strong legal standing here. In America.
Under aggressive action of the Marxocrat Party, the American government, all three branches, are putting in super-human efforts to legislate the weather, stop farmers from using fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides, stop miners and drillers from producing fossil fuels, stop all nuclear power development, subsidize unworkable and/or unprofitable wind and solar power development, switch farmers from producing food to producing inefficient fuels, restrict free market products to plug the ozone holes, and on, and on, and on.
All based on untruth. Unreality. "Scientific Consensus" on nothing but scientific conjecture. And, incidentally, all unconstitutional. None of these items are to be found in Article One Section Eight, and thus they are "out of scope" and not to be legally addressed by any of the three branches of the federal government. Opinions only; no legislation, no executive action, no adjudication. Very simple; nothing to it.
Our sitting American government doesn't give a damn about that.
And these items are not all that are being rammed down our throats against our will; not by a long shot. Our Party-hijacked, now completely unconstitutional government is involving itself deeper and deeper into social engineering, in an obvious effort to "change" the citizenry. Every unconstitutional behavior-modifying law or tax or regulation is another social experiment. The goal is to change us from what we are to something else; the government, in its infinite wisdom, knows better than we what kind of people we should be.
I'm not going to waste a lot of time rehashing the glaringly obvious one of turning the independent citizenry into dependents of the state, through Marxist "redistribution" pretended to be done through taxing the rich to pay for "benefits" for the poor. The poor get nothing out of this old scam, other than ever increasing dependence upon the ever increasingly Marxist state, and an ever increasingly larger population of the poor.
The gas pump tax may be more than the actual pumped gas may cost, because the intent of raising prices through taxes on fuel is to train the citizenry to buy less of it. Of course, that means training the poor to buy less of it; the wealthier, including all government employees, hardly even notice the price changes.
Tobacco taxes may be more than the actual tobacco may cost, because the intent of raising prices through taxes on tobacco is to train the citizenry to buy less of it. Of course, that means training the poor to buy less of it; the wealthier, including all government employees, hardly even notice the price changes.
You should see the pattern here. Taxes, and other regulations, are used to modify citizen behavior. Despite the fact that market produced goods such as motor fuel, tobacco, liquor, etc., are not listed in Article One Section Eight. Nothing is out of bounds for these people. Sugar. Salt. Kinds of light bulbs.
Whether something may be good for us or bad for us is not a federal case. It's our business, not theirs. Our own common sense and our own national religious morality should be the driving force in making such personal decisions, one citizen at a time. But, guess what, our national religious morality is under direct attack by the exact same government that is trying to herd us all into the behaviors they and they alone prefer. They seek to make themselves into a replacement for our religion.
In imitation of God, they make for us an entirely new reality.
All of this is just a reflection of the morally depraved culture of the Washington - New York elitist mentality that looks down on all the rest of us. New York "values" are highlighted by their Communist Mayor, their hatred of their own police, their embracing of Only Black Lives Matter, their love of abortion and sodomy, and an Archbishop who leads the sodomite parade. This is the new pseudo reality that infects our federal government.
And if you think this is only due to the destructive work of the Marxocrats, the Obamunists and the Marxified Media and Academia, the Republicrat Party, too, is in it up to their necks. As Rush Limbaugh recently pointed out, quoting a newly revealed Republicrat Party Political Strategy document that went along the same lines. Among the unconstitutional programs it recommended was to "embrace" the sodomite community vote. And the abortion vote. And the criminal alien vote. And the diversity vote. To attract everyone other than constitutional conservative voters, who were to be abandoned.
The Republicrat Party wants a new voter base. They now oppose us.
If you have wondered why the Republicrat Party does not resist any part of the Marxocrat Party agenda, other than with pre-election words, this is why. They are cooperating in America's decline, for the sake of remaining above it all, in the ruling class. That's the real reason. The Public reason, for Our consumption?
They're trying to make things better for us all. No, really.
It's a planet-saving, well intended, grand social experiment. See?

This is about power, money and greed. These people cannot get enough of either. The rest of us slobs must return to serfdom. When their own kin are effected by their policies we will see a different response, but in the meantime they will have done so much damage that it will be impossible to repair except through Divine Intervention. This will be the globe of the czars.

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Purpose of this grouping of links is to track and record distinctly anti-American political positions in political Parties and in the ideologically Marxist and anti-American news media.
The Anti-Americanism Pages
Virtually every position of the Marxocrat Party is in some way anti-American and/or anti-Christian. Note that anti-Christian, in and of itself, is anti-American. There is almost no part of the Marxocrat Party agenda that supports or strengthens and does not oppose the American Constitution, and the News Media is nothing more than a totally controlled wing or branch of the Marxocrat Party.
Government by Social Experiment or Constitutional Government: Choose. All government, whether ecclesial or temporal, may be seen to be morphing into Government by Social Experiment.
You Must Attack Anti-American Politics to Win American Political Wars. Any public direct attack on anti-American positions will always win, hands down. So why does no one ever do it?
America's current Anti-Constitution Constitutional Government. All three current branches knowingly violate the Constitution that created them, provided their rules and set their limits.
Do we have an Anti-American President? A Pro-Islam, Anti-Christian, Redistributionist, Utopian, Pro-Illegal Alien, quite consistently Anti-American, President Obama?
Political Parties: Redirecting allegiance away from the nation. Political Parties demand first obedience to the Party, not to the Constitution, slowly poisoning the nation.
Two Party Treason: Marxist Democrats Vs. Big Government Republicans. If both political Parties violate the Constitution in different ways, what we have is two Party treason.
Imagining a No Party America, with political Parties outlawed. When Political Parties oppose or do not defend the Constitution it is time for a No Party America.
New Way American Politics: Restoring and Advancing Cultural Americanism. A New Way of doing our Politics after anathematizing Political Parties, Marxism, Islam and Globalism.
Look at all the anti Constitutionalists - see how they run. See the anti Constitutionalists gather for war against those who violate lesser laws.
What to do with our anti-American Americans? Can America live with them? There are several variants of anti-American Americans who pose a serious threat from within.
How to incite class war in a classless society: First, Invent Faux Classes. Marxist Revolution needs a Class War, but Constitutional America prohibits nobility. Ergo, the Faux Classes of Marxism.
Faux Classes 2: Defining Social Classes by Income or Wealth. The Poor we will "NOT" always have with us? It just doesn't get any dumber than this. Faux Classes 2.
Treachery and Deceit: The Weapons of the Enemies Within. How Freedom of Speech opens the door to Anti-Free-Speech-Treachery in High Constitutional Political Office.
Twisting the Cultural Assimilation versus Cultural Segregation question. Natural cultural assimilation is for races and ethnicities; twisted cultural assimilation is for sin and evil.
Civilization versus Savagery: On Distinct Peoplehood. Civilization makes an identifiable civil People; savage, barbaric trends remove the distinction.
The Rise of Dominant Atheism, and with it, American and World Culture Rot. Culture Rot ensues once Human Culture predominantly worships only itself.
America's Extra-Constitutional Self Destructive Politics: Civilization's Doom. How all of our Presidential Candidates build up and support America's Self Destructive Politics.
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
