As our ‘leaders’ contemplate military action in Ukraine, and more vaccine madness at home… having already decimated our own economy and the freedoms that allowed us to build it… it’s worth recalling the following observation — one might almost call it a prediction — made by President Lincoln:
From whence shall we expect the approach of danger? Shall some trans-Atlantic military giant step the earth and crush us at a blow? Never. All the armies of Europe and Asia…could not by force take a drink from the Ohio River or make a track on the Blue Ridge in the trial of a thousand years. No, if destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men we will live forever or die by suicide.
When America falls apart, it won’t be Russia or China that destroys us or the COVID-19 virus. In the words of Pogo, we have met the enemy, and he is us.
