On July 4, 1863, the day after the Civil War Battle of Gettysburg was lost to the South, the Confederate stronghold at Vicksburg, Mississippi also fell to the Union Army, thus cutting the Confederacy in half. On December 20, 1864, General Sherman telegraphed President Abraham Lincoln, “I give you as a Christmas gift, the city of Savannah”. General Sherman’s
“March to the Sea” from Atlanta to Savannah in the Fall of 1864, had now quartered the divided Confederacy, and the war was now lost for the South.
As of 2016, America has been deeply divided into two vastly different political and social subcultures for about the past 50 years. The division deepened about 25 years ago, and became potentially explosive during the seven year “reign of terror” under President Barack Obama. Since the Summer of 2015, Donald Trump has, through his irresponsible rhetoric and swashbuckling style matched with shallow policy substance, further divided an already badly split Republican Party. Trump and his followers, perhaps unwittingly, perhaps deliberately, have taken our divided nation and, like General Sherman 150 years ago, divided it again and thus quartering America.
Weakened by Mr. Obama’s ruthless administration and now further weakened by the fractioning of America into multiple political camps, America has dangerously drifted, leaderless except for “Obama the Destroyer”. Without leaders or candidates who will seal off our borders, immediately stop all immigration, illegal and legal, and take the fight to the worldwide war of Islamic terror to our enemy with force, the terror, already having established a foothold on American soil but overrunning and devastating Europe will arrive in America with the same vengeance already present in Germany, France, Belgium and Sweden.
America, with destructive and evil leadership by the Obama administration and politically in disarray largely because of the most dysfunctional Presidential Primary season in at least a century, our leadership in Congress and most of our candidates for President have”taken their eyes off the ball”. Within a year, America is likely to witness either: (1) the demise of the Republican Party; (2) the emergence of a new, Constitutional Conservative Party; (3) the development of a political party system of three or more parties to replace the two centuries of the two party system; (4) perhaps, all three of the above. The current internal war within the conservatives and centrists in the GOP threatens the loss of the Presidency and the Senate to Democrats. If Democrats are allowed to retain the Presidency, or worse, also retake the Senate in November, America will descend rapidly into a hellish nightmare of social and economic collapse, chaos and fear, and the emergence of nationwide, daily Islamic terrorism violence, because Democrats, especially Obama and Clinton, do not care about national security.
Meanwhile, our feckless, cowardly Congressional “leaders” have callously abandoned national security responsibilities to the American people, continuing to allow open borders, unfettered legal and illegal immigration, while Obama, Clinton, Democrats, and most “RINOS” in Congress refuse to address the clear and imminent danger of unbridled mass warfare by terrorists who are being allowed to cross our open border daily.
With a long-divided America now “quartered” politically and adrift on both national security and socioeconomic stability, leaderless and without vision, our only hope for survival as a nation, is the election in November of a Constitutional Conservative with great vision, leadership and great courage. To paraphrase the Holy Bible in Matthew 24:8, unless such a great conservative President is elected, America has only seen “the beginning of our sorrows.”
