Safe behind the massive walls, reinforced by rock and wood, guarded by archers wielding arrows of fire, the Trojans had fought off the Greeks for ten years. Seemingly an impossible feat, the Greeks never wavered from their mission. For ten years, Greeks would attempt to breach, only to be sent back running to the shore. Each unsuccessful breach empowered the Greek soldiers to try harder. As more boats came from Greece and more soldiers camped on the beach, the city of Troy remained unfazed. The city was safe, the people of Troy thought, after all the Greeks had not been able to breach the walls in ten years.
However, the Greeks had something the people of Troy did not- tenacity and grit. No matter how long it took, how many soldiers it cost them, and how much money they spent- the Greeks knew they would eventually get through those massive gates- come hell or high water. Sound familiar?
Time continued to pass until one day, much to the surprise of the Trojans, the Greeks had vanished. Retreated leaving nothing but a large wooden horse behind. The celebration ensued, the Greeks were gone, and Troy was finally free of the turbulent wartime. The second they let their guard down and believed they won, Greeks waited until nightfall snuck out from the horse, opened the gates and destroyed everything that was once a beautiful place. Women were raped, children enslaved, and men were murdered
As the old saying goes, history repeats itself- and we’re currently living through a modern, American version of the Trojan war.
Innocently enjoying the week of Christmas, celebrating friends, family and football teams, Americans are paying no attention to the big Trojan horse flying through congress. Furthermore, many have begun to rest easier knowing their votes were cast, and a new House of Representatives awaits to begin protecting American priorities.
America’s eyes are off the ball, which is exactly how it starts.
Much like the city of Troy, America’s walls have been under attack for many years. Woke ideologues and marxists have tried numerous times to breach the walls of the American democracy and burn down the very structure that has held this country together for over 400 years.
For decades progressives have invaded our schools, our media, many of our politicians, and governmental agencies. However, these progressive Marxists have not been able to breach the American family, the American neighborhoods, and the American dream. As horrific as it seems today, this only a tiny fraction of the progressive’s Marxist agenda. What we’re witnessing today is merely a sneak peak to what is to come should our walls be breached, and the cracks in the walls are starting to show.
This is the closest the woke, Marxist, liberal, ideologues have been to entering the American family and communities and it’s happening from the inside out, led by those elected by the American people.
American patriots around the country are working to block the penetration and growth of this woke infiltration. Strides are being made against child mutilation, grooming, and the destruction of American history to name a few. However, that doesn’t do any good when the federal government, unbeknownst to most, fund programs that go directly against what people are fighting for in their own communities.
Just like the people of Troy, many Americans have been lulled into a false sense of security, underestimating the damage politicians can do in a matter of days.
This week the Senate, led by Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer, passed a 1.7 trillion-dollar spending bill. According to McConnell, republicans had two choices: support the military or don’t, which is his sinister way of papering over the dark progressive funding hidden within the bill. Aside from the obvious economic impact of that much spending, there are over 4,000 pages of earmarks within the bill that under the guise of funding defense, fund the very ideologies that American’s have rejected for decades.
The growing national debt and raising inflation and the economic repercussions of this bill are nothing compared to the attacks on the American way of life hidden between the pages. Americans have proven generation after generation their ability to survive and grow through economic hardships. However, we have not protected the American way with the same strength because, “it could never happen to us.”
From allowing ideologues to remove the flag and pledge of allegiance in schools to supporting the unconstitutional radical laws of the land, American’s do not have the same tenacity and grit in protecting our culture and heritage as they do their bank accounts. That is our weakness. We have allowed year by year, inch by inch progressives to take little pieces of America away under the guise of fairness, equality, and political correctness.
The democratic foundation of this country has always been our greatest line against these liberal ideologues. By using the power of our vote and relying on those who represent us in Washington. From the time we’re old enough to read we’re promised that in America, the people choose who and what happens through our votes.
However, our representatives have disregarded our god given rights, and have worked hard to make the priorities of the American people irrelevant. Our votes have become pieces of paper sent into the abyss only to elect a politician who gets to Washington and disregards everything they promised. In Washington there is no loyalty to the American foundation, there is no loyalty to American citizens and most importantly there is no loyalty to the American dream.
Filled with the modern equivalent to the Greek soldiers, this omnibus spending bill is being wheeled into the American household, through the front door pretending to help defend our nation. In order to ensure the passage of this Trojan horse the architects gave elected officials only four days to review the spending bill before voting. In line with the Greeks senate leadership want law makers to know as least about the spending as possible.
