“May God save the country, for it is evident the people will not.”
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say if you don’t know who Millard Fillmore is that you are more likely to be part of the problem facing our country than part of the solution.
Millard Fillmore was the 13th President of the United States and the last President not to be affiliated with either the Democratic or Republican parties. That’s not really a valuable piece of information except that it says something about the type of education that was offered to you and your participation in it.
In keeping with President Fillmore’s bon mot, his party folded at the end of his presidency, and he failed to be reelected as the candidate of a new third party. (The new party, the Know Nothings, needed a candidate more like Brandon.)
Fillmore was correct in his assessment of the American people; they were deeply divided and neither side had any interest in peaceful coexistence. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Both sides saw the other as lacking not only intelligence, but also the right to an opinion, and any degree of integrity or humanity. It’s not surprising that eight years later we were killing each other in support of our opinions and lifestyles.
Might makes right. Policy at the point of a bayonet became our inheritance. Oh, we don’t use physical weapons anymore but that’s not to say weapons are not employed. Today it’s the blind eye of the media and the compliant masses given to one side, and its dogged scorn of the other as somewhat less than human.
Business giants working for their Great Reset agenda are bent on the destruction of small, family-owned businesses, a global reach for the few, and finding/harvesting ballots to ensure the “right” people who support them are elected. Zukerbucks didn’t bother buying individual votes, they bought vote counting and vote counters. (On Wisconsin!)
Buying votes is nothing new, it’s as American as voting, but outside of Chicago, we’ve not seen it as blatant or on such a scale as we did in 2020. I read the great vote finder and possible disciple of Stalin’s election model, Stacey Abrahams, has been made President of Earth in the new Star Trek, so there’s a real future on selling out the country.
We the People have not learned our history nor learned from it. In fact, we are now bent on ignoring and whitewashing history. Not to fear, we’ll stumble over it again soon.
Let’s end with a word from President Fillmore’s successor, Democrat Franklin Pierce—“There is nothing left to do but get drunk.”
