President Abraham Lincoln said, “America will never be destroyed from outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will because we destroyed ourselves “

Patrick Henry said, “United we stand divided we fall.”

The liberal left, the establishment and media are working very hard to make this a reality.

Far too many of our political leaders have forgotten why they got elected and are now suffering under Me, Myself and I syndrome versus building the America we all love and that’s “The United States of America.”

We don’t have to look very hard or far to see or prove this is going on, as we can use our President Trump as a great example of someone who perhaps has achieved more than any President in the same period of time, who has made mistakes but acknowledged them, corrected them, and goes on tirelessly to keep his promises he made during his campaign. Our President receives more disrespect than probably any other president in recent history. You may say respect is earned. OK, consider this, he worked very hard to get elected and won. He is our President and thus earned the respect of the citizens of our United States of America. We don’t have to agree with everything. We should value the ability to debate all sides of an issue professionally and openly with respect to one another’s opinions. When decisions are made then we must unite and move on to continue to build a Strong “United States Of America.”

It seems to be the norm that debate has gone and given into the media, the liberal left and establishment taking the President’s inventory and trying ruthlessly to tear him, his office and his family to shreds. It is totally destructive to our country and none of these people are qualified to judge anyone other than themselves of which they should do immediately.

So, I was troubled when I saw one of our local liberal leaders in one of our liberal cities in the valley lash out at President Trump in a very unprofessional expression of tearing down and criticizing him. Name calling and all. While I understand Greg Pettis has been long involved in his Democratic Party and Cathedral City in various forms of leadership, he must now wear the badge of one who is divisive and destructive to our country as the United States of America . You see, he is openly a part of the problem and not the solution as well as others obviously like him. He has condoned violations of the Constitution with his position on sanctuary cities as well has put illegals ahead of legals and jeopardized the safety and well-being of our first responders in the process. He has lead the way to legalize recreational marijuana that jeopardizes the well-being of our youth and safety of citizens as a trade-off  to create tax revenue. He seriously jeopardized the auto industry in his city in the process. Another thing he should take note is his city’s status that 21.8 percent of the citizens live below the poverty level and that’s 7.8 percent higher than the national average.

Therefore, Mr. Greg Pettis must fall into the group of leaders that are truly part of our country’s problem, not solution. He now can be proud to belong to the group of Waters, Pelosi, DeLeon and Harris to mention a few. Those who have gone off the deep end continue to sell out our country for their own ‘Me, Myself and I’ attitude versus building a United States of America with ‘We the People.”

We must keep in mind that more than 500,000 good men and women fought and paid the ultimate price to preserve our Constitution and the freedoms it gives us. They deserve your respect and appreciation.

You can choose between a country that is the liberals’ way with big government, more poverty and more welfare or the conservatives way,  a country that is less government, less taxes and more “We the people.”

Thomas Jefferson said “We in America do not have a government by the majority — we have a government by the majority who participate … All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”
