"When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe." (quote is from a letter Jefferson wrote to James Madison i 1787).
Jefferson returned to the same theme in an 1800 letter to Benjamin Bush:
"I view great cities as pestilential to the morals, the health and the liberties of man. True, they nourish some of the elegant arts; but the useful ones can thrive elsewhere; and less perfection in the others, with more health, virtue and freedom, would be my choice."
It is rather astounding to note that Europe's ills have been festering for such a long time and that they are without remediation. It is likewise almost as astounding to note that our founding father's had the wisdom to eschew their system. Yet, this much of this nation has purposed (most diligently, I might add) to model itself after the insanity of liberalism that now abides in our closest allies.
Without controversy, America is being led in the way of socialist Europe. Almost paradoxically, many leaders in this country bemoan (at least to our faces) how terrible that system is. However, they do so in a most hypocritical way because they are dragging us deeper and deeper into the same morass and mix of anti-Christianity, amorality, immorality, irresponsibility, and Marxism and Communism. In doing so, our leaders have perpetrated nothing less than treason upon "we the people" as they follow Europe's lead in a headlong rush into a New World Order.
This New World Order is not only socialist but it demands social engineering to the point to where the Caucasian race must be eliminated and melded into a new mono-colored, mono-cultured atheistic people. It means the mass movement and migration of other races, creeds, and colors into countries in the western world that are currently dominated by whites until they no longer exist.
We see that happening in front of our eyes as Muslim hoards now easily conquering Europe. Only, this time, they are not conquering with the sword as in the days of the "Crusades". They are conquering Europe with the aid of its leaders who are actually paying the invaders to do so. Add to that the fact that Muslims are overwhelming Europe at a brisk pace simply by taking advantage of both a low birth rate amongst the whites and their own high birth rate. Europe is vanishing and at a frightening pace.
In this country, we see the same dynamic of government-funded demographic modification and displacement steamrolling through the land. The entire southwestern U.S. has been irrevocably altered into a region where, in only a few more years, English will be a second language. This writer is already a minority in his own hometown in the southeastern portion of the San Joaquin Valley. He can go nowhere locally but that he hears the staccato of the Spanish language being spoken by those who are here illegally.
We also have a government that is very hostile to Christianity and which is murderous in demanding the heinous slaughtering of babies in their mother's wombs. In fact, it is hostile to everything we have known and held dear for 236 years.
Are we able to ascribe blame for these ugly dynamics that half the nation abhors while the other half embraces and defends them most rabidly? I think we can. We can thank those in America's large cities for aiding and abetting in this crime. It is they who have gone after the way of Karl Marx and who have been deceived into thinking that "slavery is freedom", "stealing from the rich and giving to the poor" is just, and that "poverty is wealth and equality".
The voting in this country has, for a long time, has been determined, by and large, by the most populous areas. Those in the largest cities have no clear connection with the rest of the nation. Their voting proves it as the continually vote for evil. Time and again, they vote without wisdom and understanding. Time and again, they vote against their personal success and insure that they are enslaved and indentured to poverty. They vote against their freedom, and the destruction of their own country. Astoundingly, they do so with great joy. In the real world, we call that "deception".
The difference between the big cities and the rest of the nation is profound. The so-called "Red States" have fewer megalopolises and are less populess in general than "Blue States". The ethic of the "Red State" population leans heavily on our American heritage, our American culture, and our Christian foundation. Importantly, they are adment about keeping our founding forefather's dream of freedom alive. They believe in the rule of law including and especially the Constitution and its amendments. They cling to the notion that all men are created equal and in the inalienable rights given of God and not of men. They believe that you must be a responsible individual know that, freedom without responsibility leads so a chaotic society that can only be controlled through tyranny. They believe in the sanctity of life of the unborn as well as the sanctity of marriage and that it should remain undefiled. An unshakable belief is of the sovereignty of parents over their children and that the state cannot abridge or nullify that right.
Contrast that with the states that have the most huge cities. Their beliefs clash with every single thing that our founding fathers fought and died for. They are literally at war with our history, our culture, or Constitution, our freedom, our Christianity, and our God. They believe in multi-culturalism which is nothing short of a "divide and conquer" tactic used in warfare from the beginning of time. They believe that homosexuality is normative and are forcing it upon our grade school aged children (and who should be protected from such defilement at all costs). The killing of babies, the destruction of the family, and atheism, all contrary to everything that America has stood for, are their daily diet.
And it is they, the gleefully deceived, who control the voting. It is they who are advocationg the erradication of Christians and conservatives for the sake of society. It is they who embrace the insanity of Marxism, dialectical materalism, Hegelianism, and a pelthora of logic and truth destroying "isms". It is they who are helping to steer this nation into the turbulent and turbid waters of "New World Order".
For all of this, there are those who have diligently been warning this nation for decades of the impending demise of our freedom. They have yelled long and loudly that, except we arise in vigilance to protect our rights, we will suffer a horrible fate and loss of all. Few have listened. Now, with the advent of mass media capability (i.e. the Internet et. al.), the message is being disseminated world wide and with even greater urgency. But, the deafness of insanity and deception has silenced the ears of those who would be free. And big cities continue to rule.
