America Is Divided Because America Is Confused

 

America is divided because America is confused.

She’s tried to erroneously make synonymous the concepts of equality and sameness.

She’s confused the sound principle of personal charity with the immoral concept of wealth redistribution by taxation and government force.

She’s blurred the lines between political statements about injustice and disrespect for American symbols that represent the greatest nation in the history of the world.

She’s conflated free markets and big government. Republicans and conservatives. Freedom of religion and discrimination.

America will continue to be confused until she rediscovers her character. Her identity. Her foundational principles.

America may be confused, but she doesn’t have to be. The answers are there for those who seek to find them. And it’s our job to make sure they’re hearing these answers in a conservative, not bitter way.
