Shame on all the people who take America for granted.  Like the silly 21-year-old who leaked secret American military documents to video gamers online.  And shame on everyone else who fails to appreciate the magnificence of the Founders’ ideals – popular sovereignty, representative limited government, and individual rights.  Where would we be without those ideals?  Under the boot of a Putin or a Xi Jinping, that’s where.

Speaking of silly, shame on the Tennessee Democrats who proposed replacing the federal Columbus Day holiday with Super Bowl Monday.

Shame on Nancy Pelosi for saying Donald Trump has to prove his innocence, in complete contradiction to the constitutional principle people are innocent until proven guilty.

Shame on the Democrats who are trying to remove a statue of Lincoln who kept the Union together and freed the slaves.

Shame on Whoopi Goldberg who objected to House members saying the Pledge of Allegiance.

Shame on the California teacher who removed the American flag from her classroom and had her students pledge allegiance to the gay pride flag instead.

Shame on Tim Kaine’s wife for saying the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution enshrined slavery without mentioning amendments to the Constitution that got rid of the vestiges of slavery and perfected the Founders’ vision of liberty and justice for all.

Shame on the Florida Democrat who said exercising your Second Amendment right to bear arms is “fascism”.

And shame on the woman who trashed American citizenship as ‘racialized’, really just a white thing.

So, to all these people I say you better get a grip.  You don’t know what you have until it’s gone.  This is the best country on earth and lots of serious people before you have spent their time improving it for everyone instead of running their mouths.  Stop making fools of yourselves and showing us your ignorance when you have no idea what you would replace America with.

Our founding documents are based on classical liberalism, the most coherent, sustainable, and humane idea in the entire history of political thought.  You don’t have anything that can compete with it.  If you’re as mindless as I think you are, you don’t have anything at all in that empty head of yours.  Leave governance to serious people who have bothered to inform themselves on the principles of good governance and who have studied what happens when tyrants, mobs, and utopians succeed in taking over – blood flowing in the streets, that’s what.

You’re enabling them with your mindlessness and it’s gotta stop.  This is no video game.
