George Washington’s Farewell Address

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

An evening pause: On George Washington’s actual birthday, let’s honor our first president with a history lesson essentially written by the man himself, and even more pertinent today.

    Only problem is that without the United States military we would all be under tyranny.

    To the majority of rational Democrat Americans, in reality you agree with none of what the Democrat leadership is selling, none of it. And I am sorry but you know intuitively that that is true. You know better, personally despise Trump or not.

    And it becomes harder and harder for you to support the Democrat leadership’s extreme attraction to and alliance with their Leftist and even Communist doctrine.

    Supporting the Democrat leadership and their agenda is counter intuitive and un American on most every level.

    I tell people I know: “Trump is the best thing that has happened to Washington D.C. and the United States in 155 years, since Lincoln”. And I am dead serious. Some readily agree, and some look at me like I am insane.

    (But they know very well I am not insane. Reconcile.)

    The picture below says it all, and there is no justifying anything other than the proper control of our borders in all the ways that that is accomplished. Do you really agree that the normal condition of our borders is where 400 or 500 thousand people flood across it every year, and stay?


    I didn’t think so.

  • Cotour: That link was no good, so I deleted it. Can you try again?

    Try this, its a picture of a single lady in an xray machine with her hands over her head at the airport trying to get through security to get on an airplane in the above picture and a caravan of about 10 thousand people marching towards the U.S. border, to enter as of their self determined right.

    The Democrat logic is once again revealed to be upside down, backwards and anti American.

  • Cotour: These links are not real urls, but links to an email you received, thus they are not readable to anyone else.

    You need to go to the webpage and get the actual url, from there.
