Mark Caserta: We must not allow crisis to bring about Arbitrary Rule and destruction

Shortly after Barack Hussein Obama won the 2008 presidential election, the man who would later become his chief of staff spoke at a Wall Street Journal corporate CEO conference.

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste”, regurgitated then Congressman Rahm Emanuel. “And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things that you could not do before.”

Every society needs a set of rules by which to live to prevent chaos and ultimate destruction. Our U.S. Constitution was established to do just that!

In existence for more than two centuries, our Constitution establishes and maintains the relationship between our government, the states, and our people.  Over time, the Constitution has been amended infrequently, but always in a manner designed to guarantee the basic protections of the people.  Thousands of amendments have been proposed over the years, but only seventeen have been ratified.

It’s imperative all Americans have a clear understanding of the intent of the Constitution.  Like the Bible, (yet not nearly as exhaustive) it provides rules by which should live. It guarantees every American’s fundamental right for the protection of life, liberty, and property.

Besides creating a national government with a system of checks and balances among three branches and separating the powers of federal and state governments, our Constitution is predominantly designed to protect the individual liberties of American citizens.

Also, like the Bible, it’s a Divinely inspired document progressive liberals have committed their lives to mitigating and removing from society. While liberals have nothing profitable to offer in terms of morality and principled conduct, they are consistent in their devotion to remove boundaries. Whether a border, a wall or and a traditionally accepted behavior, behavioral limitations have no place in a radically permissive America.

I refer to my opening line in this column to describe what has been happening to the world around us. 

One must understand progressivism.  The progressive movement is a tenacious attack against all things Biblical or conservative in nature.  For example, television programming just twenty years ago was dramatically less suggestive and permissive than it is now!  Utilizing a long-range plan, liberal television executives gradually desensitized viewers to sex, violence and foul language, primarily focusing on young people.  Over time, they persistently pushed the envelope and tilted their sliding scale of morality to the left.  They didn’t do it overnight, they did it “progressively”, hence their moniker.

Currently, progressives are leveraging fear to institute an ideology of “Arbitrary Rule” which empowers leftist leaders to abuse emotional shifts in society to manipulate and irradicate traditional standards. Supported by a complicit media we are witnessing the advocacy of a leftist’s cancel culture that ostracizes anyone failing to align with a new world order which despises America’s traditional belief system, afforded by the U.S. Constitution and pre-imminent to the success of our great nation.

Per the modus operandi of liberals, promoting the idea of socialism is a major part of their plan to destroy our infrastructure of entrepreneurialism.  The success of socialism is the biggest lie of the twentieth century.  It has never worked!  While it promises equality and prosperity, it always delivers poverty and tyranny.  The only equality it propagates is that everyone is equally poor! 

I have a dear friend who escaped the tyranny of his nation years ago who told me, “Mark, the only people who support communism are those who have never lived under it!”  He is a great American.

I’ve studied and written about progressivism for over twenty years. I can say without hesitation liberals have sustained a disturbingly successful attack on America.

Believe me when I say COVID-19 is the best thing that ever happened to the progressive movement!  It is their gold at the end of the liberal rainbow.

Progressives are using a pandemic to manipulate Americans to willingly hand over their constitutional rights and entrepreneurial spirit so the government can “save” them from destruction and provide all their needs – as the government defines them.

And once we’ve handed them over, we will never have them again.  Liberal politicians will make “constitutional” changes to ensure patriots may never again successfully rise against tyrannical rule.  Laws will change. Rights will be trampled upon under the guise of protecting others.

Americans will have no choice, monetarily or otherwise, but to succumb to the demands of government.  It’s happening right now, before our very eyes.  And sadly, we are allowing it.

Brave men and women have died to see our Constitution live. We owe it to our past and our future to honor their gift of freedom to us. Don’t be fooled into allowing crisis to bring about destruction.

It’s time for another American Revolution, this time at the polls.
