We observe this phenomena becoming more plainer with each new presidential election. Our nation is polarized right down the middle. We can even see the regional dichotomy between the Red States and Blue States. The Red States are the interior and heartland of our country. The Blue States consist of the large populated cities and coastal states. These areas present two different, divergent and opposing world views. Let us examine each. The following observations are by no means conclusive, and a mere thumb nail sketch by the blog author. I am sure you could add more examples to this article:
Blue States: The recent mantra at their demonstrations is “Black lives matter.” A heavy handed, government is desired, with high taxation for the middle class in order to underwrite expenses. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the concept of “Global Warming” are promoted, and the ramifications of them produce an endless sea of ridiculous taxes, red tape and bureaucracy. Sanctuary cities are desired in order to protect the “rights” of illegals and criminals. Abortion is not a problem, and a viable option for anyone who desires one. Our nations’ borders should be wide open and allow anyone to enter at will. This mindset also reveals a receptivity to the New World Order (NWO). Illegals are welcome, and should be supported through our tax dollars. American distinctives and the Judeo Christian ethic upon which our nation was built, are not held in high regard in the least. Our countries’ Constitution is a fluid document and can be ignored and/or modified. Patriotism offends many, especially minorities, and the American flag can be burned and trampled upon. The American flag is not displayed at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) until someone complains. At the DNC, they even vote on whether or not to pray! Instead of our immigrants learning our culture, language and way of life, we are suppose to cater to their every whim and desire. Anyone who fears the heavy infiltration of Muslims and their Sharia Law, is labeled Islamophobic. If you believe that homosexuality is a sinful lifestyle and repudiated in the Bible, then you are homophobic. Guns are evil and no one should be permitted to own one. Our public restrooms should be open to transvestites, and every other form of sexual perversion. Gays and lesbians should be permitted to marry. Moral values, and determining right from wrong may differ from person to person. There are no moral absolutes. President Obama is attempting to employ lesbian farmers throughout our nation. He is doing this in order to break up rural conservatives. Note how these values go against our nation’s foundation beliefs that espouse God and Country. There is no desire to seek harmony in our country following the elections. There is an anger expressed towards those who disagree with them, going so far as attempting to overturn the election results. The Left broke windows, led in riots, overturns cars, etc., after losing the election. Celebrities threatened to leave the country if their candidate lost the election (they all cried wolf and stayed). Also noteworthy was the post election “sore loser” infantile behavior of the left wing weenie brigade, featuring cuddling with puppies, drinking hot cocoa, lying on the pavement in the fetal position, group screams at Yale University, as well as a wide variety of other reprehensible deeds whose actions were reminiscent of those we use to call brats. In the You Tube below, you can see their leader setting the tone for immature meltdowns:
HILLARY CRYING UNCONTROLLABLY ALL NIGHT PROTESTS AND WHAT DEMOCRAT STANDS FOR
Red States: It is realized within this group that “All lives matter.” There is a desire to keep taxes down as much as possible, and keep governing to a minimum, thus allowing our citizenry to make their decisions on the local level. The failed Obamacare is rightly interpreted as unconstitutional. The evangelicals are still found in the heartland and have great influence in the red states. 82% of evangelicals voted Republican. There is a desire to curb the immigration of illegals and those who would seek the harm of our nation. Abortion is rightly interpreted as pure unadulterated murder. The Judeo Christian ethic upon which our country was founded, is greatly esteemed and respected. Sanctuary cities are seen in a very negative light, and as a method to harbor criminals. Patriotism is a positive trait, and the flag is raised as we love God and Country. The flag is esteemed and adored, not burned and trampled upon. There is no hatred for the LGBT Community; yet they are seen as living a perverted lifestyle, totally contrary to the will of God. Public restrooms should remain the way they have always been – for men and for women period. Marriage is ONLY between one man and one woman. Muslims are welcome to America insofar that they submit to our Constitution and do not attempt to implement Sharia Law. Since this scenario is very unlikely, the immigration of Muslims to the United States of America will always be a difficult issue. Second amendment rights are endorsed, and afford protection for our citizenry. It is a well established fact that where people are allowed to carry arms, there is less crime. The United States Constitution is fully endorsed, and is seen as representing the very law upon which our nation and government were built. The Brexit decision in Great Britain is greatly appreciated, as Britain decided they do not desire allegiance and unity with the European Union. The New World Order (NWO) is interpreted as the enemy of the sovereignty of the United States of America. Many nations in the United Nations are Islamic, and a danger to our beliefs as Americans. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is observed as a political football that carries a huge bureaucratic agenda with it. (i.e. Taxing farmers hundreds and even thousands of dollars for each cow they own, and heavily taxing the land that animals graze on, etc., etc., etc.) The citizens of the red states are saddened when their candidates lose the election, yet do not enter the riot or self pity mode, or threaten to somehow usurp the election results.
Yes, there is a deep chasm running through our nation, and two totally opposing world views. Will they eventually threaten the unity of our United States?
Pray For Revival In America!
