Heartland Rising: The Defense of American Values
Author: Martin Capages Jr. PhD
The American People are basically good. While this is contrary to some religious beliefs about the inherent internal nature of Humankind, the American Heartland is made up people who desire to get along with each other and to help others when necessary. One word describes the Heartland, that word is Kindness. Kindness is found in rural America. It is essentially neighbor helping neighbor in times of hardship and celebrating together when things are good.
The American Heartland has had enough and it is going to do something about it in 2022 and 2024. Let's be clear, the United States of America is a great country. To most Americans, it is the greatest country in the World. It was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and became a free nation in 1776. It corrected its major flaw, the slavery of blacks in 1865. It wasn't a perfect correction. It took the courage of a black pastor, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to peacefully protest and achieve what was written in 1776, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." People in the American Heartland are not racist, and they are through being called that by the media, celebrities and political elites. They believe that All Lives Matter to their Creator and that the Black Lives Matter movement is Marxist blather and evil in its intent. The Heartland rejects the onslaught of fascists calling themselves Antifa. They are the obvious brown shirts of the Democratic Party since there was no outcry from that party during the violent protests and riots during 2020 and there has been no effort by Federal law enforcement to arrest the leaders and organizers of those local insurrections.It is very apparent that President Biden and the Democratic Party did not understand the message of the 2016 Presidential Election or the 2010 Tea Party. Their focus was, and continues to be, on the negative personality traits of the Messenger, Donald Trump and not the Message itself. It was the Trump Administration policies under the banners Make America Great Again and America First that most of the Nation supported with near unanimous support in the American Heartland. Trump's agenda resonated with the very essence of Heartland values, Individual Freedom, Equality of Opportunity and The American Dream.
It is also very apparent that the mainstream media have failed in their duty to be objective reporters. They do not need to be patriots. They just need to be honest and they haven't been for a long time. It may be too late for the media to return to the Journalist Creed. If they remain corrupt, they can watch as the American Heartland rises to do its duty at the ballot box in 2022.
