Conservatism has been America's ball and chain since conservatives in the Second Continental Congress forced Thomas Jefferson to strike from our Declaration of Independence the abolishment of slavery.
How long will Republicans lie to themselves about how much they've abandoned Abraham Lincoln's preserve, protect and defend the United States of America, Gettysburg standard.
And, so it is still with Trey Gowdy and Jim Jordan. The former spending over 7.8 million taxpayer dollars over two and a half years, for nothing and the latter choosing to ignore pleas for help from molested children.
Why do Republicans elect the apocryphal, I'm not a crook?
Nonetheless, no reasonable person thinks the Democratic Party has been a consistent, or even honorable shield for, We the People, but its center-left lineup of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, & Elena Kagan, Bobby Kennedy, Bill & Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama reveal an evolution far more dedicated to an American dream shared by all, regardless of skin color, sexual persuasion or even political party.
How long will Republicans defend the proposition of condemning those who fail to lock-step with conservative sexual, religious and political mindset -- while worshiping a president who violates women, isolates children and profanes all forms of religion, including Christianity?

It's intentionally challenging to know when to let go, why to ever turn the other cheek, where to stand tall with, this far but no farther -- and how peaceful assembly resistance saves us from becoming what we're against.
Like the ACLU and Rutherford Institute, I stand with those who revere our Constitution, as not only a sacred document, but a breathing counselor mentoring us in an all-inclusive, Golden Rule.
11% of the American population, including my father and four of his brothers, answered the call to be the Greatest Generation, defending and projecting the extensive values of our democratic republic, the United States of America -- including, whether realizing it or not, children molested while church and state adults remained inseparable in their silence.
When will Democrats, Independents and Republicans recognize that The Gettysburg Address defines The American Dream, as the very antagonist to the U.S. Army reneging on promise of citizenship for serving an ungrateful nation.
