History

History has a fairly simple understanding, but contains numerous pockets of data that have been performed, remembered, recorded, collected, disseminated, offered and run through a plethora of interpretive schools of thoughts: ideas, inventions, events, technology, people, places and even natural disasters.

An all too-oft retorted statement from history indeed teaches us “Those who forget the past, are doomed to repeat it” but I’ve always felt this was only half a phrase; which should be worded as “Those who ignore, don’t know or forget the past, are doomed to repeat it, as well as subjecting others to its worst excesses and abuses”

A 2008 poll by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, found that about 50% of the 2,500+ people polled, could actually name America’s 3 branches of government.

If I may steal a line from the Bible – “MY people are destroyed by a lack of knowledge”

While I’m not saying the average American needs to be a collegiate level history major, our country suffers greatly; at least in part, due to the sheer levels of ignorance by the masses, of items such as our founding, and standard civics.

This has to change, and it’s going to require every true patriotic American, getting involved, at some level.

Jerry is a concerned citizen of the great country of the United States of America. Being a student of world history, he recognizes the left-leaning markers that are increasingly becoming ever more present in society: from the violent protests and marches, to Republican Campaign trail attacks against right-wing supporters, to the destruction of civil war monuments, to the safe-spaces and attacks against Conservative speakers on college campuses, to the left-wing hate speech that plagues the internet. Jerry knows the destructive paths and history of leftist movements such as Marxism, Communism, Socialism, and Fascism. He has decided it’s time for real Patriots to rise up.
