Path has laid out our sit­u­a­tion

How ter­ri­ble it must be live in your glided palace and sud­denly awaken to a so­ci­ety that doesn’t meet your def­i­ni­tion of fac­tual and rea­son­able. It must be a re­lief to make state­ments that bear no sta­tis­ti­cal truth and com­ment on a pres­i­den­tial can­di­date us­ing deroga­tory phrases at­trib­uted to the Wall Street Jour­nal. How did we get this way, you ask? How about Beng­hazi, email scan­dals, for­eign money do­nated to “char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tions,” an FBI di­rec­tor that con­demns but can’t pros­e­cute, an At­tor­ney Gen­eral that hears no evil, a Congress that has to pass a bill to know what is in it. The list goes on and on. To not be aware of this would be ig­no­rance ... to not ac­knowl­edge this is bor­der­line in­san­ity.

When state­ments like “the ma­jor­ity of Amer­i­cans want sen­si­ble gun reg­u­la­tion” are made, it is usu­ally by some­one that is be­ing led through life by a guide dog for the lib­er­ally chal­lenged. No sen­si­ble gun leg­is­la­tion will come out of a leg­is­la­ture cor­rupted by for­eign money and Hol­ly­wood di­vas.

When state­ments like “ev­ery right comes with re­stric­tions” are made, they must be coun­tered. I won­der if this coun­try’s war dead con­sid­ered those re­stric­tions while giv­ing their lives? The con­sti­tu­tion is not a liv­ing, chang­ing doc­u­ment. It has been writ­ten with the blood of many!

Ask any news me­dia edi­tor about re­stric­tions on a free press. Ask any pas­tor about re­stric­tions on free­dom of re­li­gion. Ask any woman about her right to give birth ... or not.

It would ap­pear that lib­eral-lean­ing folks are con­demned to wan­der aim­lessly through life, won­der­ing how they got here, yet, not able to see the path they were on.
