Letter to the Editor: The battle is for truth

To the Editor:

The Battle is for Truth.

The Fight is for Life, Liberty and Justice.

The Dream (and yearning of the soul) is for Freedom. True Freedom is aligned with God. God was the originator of the American dream, as exemplified in the heart and soul of the 1620 Pilgrims who founded this country for the express purpose to have freedom to worship God.

Strong foundations are essential.

1) Our Declaration of Independence states: “We hold these truths to be self-evident that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Its author, Thomas Jefferson (our third President) also stated, “God who gave us life gave us liberty.” And “If we are to guard against ignorance and remain free, it is the responsibility of every American to be informed.”

The U.S. Constitution Preamble states, “in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice” by securing our liberty and freedoms. Freedom is not free nor did it come without great expense.

John Quincy Adams, a great patriot and our sixth President, addressed posterity by saying, “You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you make good use of it.” As a defender of free speech, Adams stood up against those who would stifle free speech.

President George Washington, our Commander-in-Chief and first President, stated, “Truth will ultimately prevail where there is ‘effort’ taken to bring it to light.” He spoke well, for then and for now.

So, what is happening to our freedoms? Every freedom seems to be attacked and on the line by current socialist-leaning politicians. As American citizens, we honor our God-inspired Constitution which every politician is bound to uphold with full compliance. But are they? This includes our Bill of Rights.

The “cancel culture” and extreme censorship (facets of socialism) do not allow all platforms of information to be openly expressed (especially those who dare to oppose their lies, expose fraud, and tell the truth).

Any person, group or political party who pursues efforts to dismantle and/or abolish our Constitutional rights (freedom of speech, press, right to peacefully assemble, and right to bear arms) does not align with ‘forming a more perfect Union.’ To the contrary, their efforts would weaken our republic. Every effort to diminish our rights goes in direct opposition to what America stands for: Life, Liberty and Justice.

As American citizens, we should be alert to those who push to undermine our rights. Consider honestly, which party and politicians support our First Amendment Rights and the Second Amendment. These are defining tenets of individual freedoms. To the contrary, which party/politicians pushes to suppress or overturn these rights? They are not doing the right thing for our constitutional republic to thrive or survive. Yes, these rights are pillars of our society. They are essential for truth, stability, and unity; foundational for our future.

As American patriots we say, “No more tearing down our statues, erasing our country’s history, and no more cancel culture, no more killing our precious unborn future citizens.” As citizens, we stand for sanctity of all human life, religious freedoms and our rights of our founding documents.

Now, let us remember the policies that President Donald J. Trump promoted. President Trump fought tirelessly for life, liberties, and for “we, the people.” He believed that our founding fathers built this country with Judeo-Christian values in its heart and soul. He consistently supported Israel and put our American Embassy in Jerusalem (her rightful capital). On every front, President Trump stood tall for America. He declared this nation to be under God’s rule - to seek righteousness and justice for our nation.

Many millions of us voted for President Trump in 2016, not knowing exactly what we would get, but we got the very best president for our nation. He accomplished more for our nation in four years than did any other president. We say, “You did a great job, President Trump! Our heartfelt thanks are extended to you and your family for loyal service.”

See the truth. What we are seeing portrayed by those in government who act in opposition to truth, life and justice is essentially rebellion against Almighty God and His Word.

God speaks to us through His Word: Isaiah 61:8... “For I the Lord love justice. I hate robbery and wrong... I will give them their recompense in truth.”;
Isaiah 35:4... “Be strong, fear not! Behold our God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God; He will come and save you.”;
Isaiah 41:10... “Fear not...for I am your God...yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My victorious right hand of rightness and justice.”;
Isaiah 43:10... “Behold, I am doing a new thing; Now it springs forth...”
Habakkuk 1:5... ”be astonished! Astounded! For I am putting into effect a work in your days that you would not believe it if it were told you.”

Final words: We know that God has His plan and He says, “Watch me work.” Watch the Hand of God at work to bring Truth, Life, Justice and Righteousness. God will still triumph, for God is never late. Never! God’s plans for America and His Glory will not be overthrown! Our faith is in God, our Creator. God wins!
