HISTORY, CIVICS, AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PENSACOLA’S FIVE-FLAGS DISPLAYS

A REAL AND LASTING HEALING

“We are living in an age of mandatory ignorance, rigid restrictions of thought and speech, and obligatory social and political lies.  If there is to be a real and lasting healing among races and regions in America, it must be based on a common recognition and understanding of truth.”

IT IS A VALID POINT

BECAUSE HISTORY IS REPEATING ITSELF

150 years ago, the Republican Party was punishing the entire Southern region of the United States for the murderous act of one deranged zealot–John Wilkes Booth.

And 150 years later, the Republican Party is punishing the entire Southern region of the United States for the murderous act of one deranged zealot–Dylann Storm Roof.

Formed in 1854–not for the abolition of slavery, but for the creation of an American empire centered in the industrialized Northern region of the United States–the Republican Party, from the very beginning, was literally pledged against the South.

Now the Republican Party is pledged against the South, once again.

And just as it is time for Democratic voters all over the United States to abandon the Democratic Party, it is time for Republican voters all over the United States to abandon the Republican Party–especially in the South.

Because history is repeating itself.

SO FAR

President Ronald Reagan was no worse than President Jimmy Carter, President George H.W. Bush was no worse than President Ronald Reagan, President Bill Clinton was no worse than President George H.W. Bush, President George W. Bush was no worse than President Bill Clinton, President Barack Obama was no worse than President George W. Bush, and President Donald Trump is no worse—so far—than President Barack Obama.

President Ronald Reagan was no better than President Jimmy Carter, President George H.W. Bush was no better than President Ronald Reagan, President Bill Clinton was no better than President George H.W. Bush, President George W. Bush was no better than President Bill Clinton, President Barack Obama was no better than President George W. Bush, and President Donald Trump is no better—so far—than President Barack Obama.

And the last good president of the United States was Gerald Ford—because he just did his job, and did not abuse his power.

And the last good Democratic president of the United States was John F. Kennedy—because he was progressive, not liberal, and because he tempered his progressivism with conservatism.

The current President of the United States would do well to follow the examples of both Presidents Gerald Ford and John F. Kennedy.

LIBERAL HISTORIANS, TAKE NOTE

It is hypocritical to praise Republican President Abraham Lincoln’s overturning of decisions made by Democratic President James Buchanan, when you condemn Republican President Donald Trump’s overturning of decisions made by Democratic President Barack Obama.
