The Lost Soul of a Nation


By: Richard H. Frank

Today, June 6th 2019, we pay homage to those brave Americans, Canadians, British, and all other nations of the Allied forces that participated in the invasion of Europe on this date in 1944. Thousands perished in the assault on the beaches of Normandy, France. This endeavor created the greatest armada in the history of the world. This day in history, June 6th 1944 will forever be known as “D” Day and epitomized the spirit of those Americans now referred to as “The Greatest Generation”.

Looking back upon the history of Americans who are included with this generation of brave young men and women we find a list of values and beliefs that have been under siege by radicals in America today; values such as:

Respect for our Constitution and the Rule of Law.

The Pledge of Allegiance to the United States of America.

Standing with our hand over our heart for the National Anthem and the Flag.

Working hard to achieve prosperity for our family.

Possessing a basic knowledge of history and civics.

Recognition that religious freedom of choice and the Ten Commandments are the pillars upon which this nation was founded.

The belief that America is a sovereign nation having borders that must be protected.

Extending common courtesy and respect to others. Having manners and using appropriate language in our dialog with others.

Somewhere along the way following the end of World War II, America started down a slippery slope to gradually erode the very values that the “Greatest Generation ” fought to preserve and many died for.
Over the years Progressives and Liberals have perverted the language contained within the founding documents of this nation and forged unwritten law in an attempt to unravel the fabric the holds our country together. Their unrelenting assault upon the foundations set forth in these words that created this Republic;
“One nation under God with liberty and justice for all” began with the removal of any reference to “God” from the public square, class rooms, and any other government-funded institutions. This action was perpetuated under the guise of “separation of church and state” a principle not found anywhere stated in the Constitution.

I truly believe this was the start of an orchestrated plan to fundamentally eradicate the values and beliefs held by and fought for by those members of the Greatest Generation. The Progressives have made great strides in their efforts to change history and paint America as a country not worthy of all we have accomplished and gained. If you need proof just ask a millennial the basic questions associated with becoming a citizen or who the Founding Fathers were and what they accomplished to see how our education system has been used to dumb down young people over the generations following the end of World War II.

Today we live in a nation divided by political ideology. Never in our history has any administration been so vilified by the media in spite of the many accomplishments to improve the lot for Americans. The media uses the 24 hour news cycle and Congress having a personal hate for a siting president as a means to hold his agenda hostage. In Congress we don’t just have gridlock we have outright obstruction and the American citizen is the one that suffers the consequences of their inaction.

We as Americans can expect no resolution to amend our immigration laws nor to secure the southern border other than those taken by President Trump through executive order only to have some Federal Judge place an injunction on that order to stop the President. Likewise any trade agreement negotiated by the administration is unlikely to be ratified by Congress in today’s environment of the politics of personal destruction. Congress will never give Trump a win even if their inaction hurts the country.

The next two years, pending the results of the 2020 elections, will consist of a series of unending investigations of non-existent crimes for which the President and his administration have been found not guilty, thus turning to the threat of impeachment over those non-existent “high crimes and misdemeanors”.

Should “WE the People ” fail to reverse the current situation that exists in the Washington D. C. swamp we will help to accelerate our demise and assure the lost soul of our once great nation for which the Greatest Generation paid so dearly.
