U.S. still ‘shin­ing city upon a hill’

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - GREGORY J. TOPLIFF War­renville, South Carolina

The world is dy­ing be­fore our eyes as the forces of dark­ness and light col­lide on a daily ba­sis. We have state-spon­sored ter­ror­ism com­ing from coun­tries such as Iran, North Korea and Syria. Be­hind closed doors Rus­sia and China plot to bring chaos and death to hu­man­ity while pre­tend­ing, pub­licly, they are for peace.

The as­sault on our con­gres­sional lead­ers is one more rea­son to speak out and tell the world that every­one is in the same boat. There are sim­ple-minded peo­ple in­flu­enced by ha­tred. From child­birth, chil­dren from dif­fer­ent cul­tures are taught that any­one who doesn’t think and act as they do are bad peo­ple and need to be de­stroyed.

Thanks to the “pro­gres­sive,” lib­eral so­ci­ety in Amer­ica, God has taken a back­seat to peo­ple’s right to be­lieve in a power that is out­side of them­selves. The an­ar­chists, liars and cheats have screamed the loud­est, in­tim­i­dat­ing the masses into believ­ing that their way is the right way.

Whom do we blame? The naysay­ers refuse to be­lieve that eight years of Pres­i­dent Obama is part of the cause of our coun­try’s demise. Rule of law went out the win­dow. Ly­ing was the new or­der of the day. Dirty deals with Iran be­hind closed doors and ‘re­set but­tons’ with Rus­sia are de­spi­ca­ble.

When our for­mer FBI di­rec­tor gave Hil­lary Clin­ton a pass on all of her wrong­do­ing, the sim­ple-minded cheered in the streets, think­ing it was nor­mal and fair, while those de­fend­ers of the law went un­heard in their com­plaints.

We as a na­tion are the lead­ers against the haters of peace. With the new lead­er­ship un­der Pres­i­dent Trump we have half a chance to bring or­der back to the world. It’s time sup­port our pres­i­dent and show those who are raised to hate and de­stroy that there is a bet­ter way to live.
