We measure ourselves from the time we are children. “Johnny grew three inches!” “Susie got all As in school!”
We compare ourselves with others to measure our accomplishments. “Johnny is faster than Fred.” “Susie is smarter than Mary.”
We compete with each other for advancement. “Johnny won a gold medal in swimming!” “Susie got into Harvard!”
We measure, compare, and compete with others as we establish our own individual identities. We also measure, compare, and compete with ourselves as we establish our own internal sense of self. So, what is the problem?
Competition, therefore winning, has rules
Competence is the mother of self-esteem. It is the foundation of the meritocracy and source of the American dream. Theoretically, when we study and work hard we achieve competence, feel good about ourselves and advance as a reward. Competition is an integral and important part of establishing an individual identity, a family identity, a community identity, and a national identity.
Every competition has rules, because fairness is the essential qualifying element for the meritocracy. Individuals compete. Teams compete. Families compete. Countries compete. When the rules for fair competition are broken, the entire merit system breaks down and the competition is replaced with a counterfeit performance that is presented as fair and legitimate.
The breakdown in American society is a breakdown of the merit system. The radical leftist Democrats are trying to replace the merit system with identity politics. Here is the problem. Identity politics are inherently racist and prejudicial because they do not measure competence or performance. They are quota systems based on discriminatory elements like skin color, gender, religion, etc. Identity politics are diametrically opposite to individualism and the American dream.
Tuesday’s 2020 presidential election is a referendum on fairness and the American dream.
Collectivism forestalls winning
Biden/Harris represent collectivism. Biden’s globalism and Harris’ radical leftism draw from the collectivist model of top-down control that denies the merit system. Technocracy is moving America and its individual accomplishments to the communist Chinese model of collectivism and sameness. It is the regressive descent backward to the feudal power structure of rulers and the ruled.
Under Obama, the radical leftist Democrats have already eliminated fair competition in public school because someone’s “feelings” might get hurt. Eliminating competition eliminates striving for excellence and competence. It is a deliberate assault on a child’s developing identity and self-esteem.
In The Book of Humanitarian Hoaxes: Killing America with ‘Kindness’ I discuss the sinister and interconnecting leftist, Islamist, globalist attacks on America that present destructive policies as altruistic. Hoax 16: The Humanitarian Hoax of Relativism (pp.56-59) and Hoax 50: The Humanitarian Hoax of Eternal Childhood (pp.248-252), explain the catastrophic dangers of valuing feelings over facts.
SARS-CoV-2 – the real facts
The oppressive and contrived Covid lockdowns have exposed public education’s curricula as dumbed down, anti-American, anti-individualism, pro-collectivist, and indoctrinating American children to be globalist citizens under one-world governance.
The 2020 election campaign has exposed the destructive Biden/Harris ticket and how it has broken every rule and eliminated any semblance of a fair political competition.
Joe Biden is a pathological liar and the most corrupt politician in the Washington swamp. If the globalist media weren’t protecting Joe Biden, he and his family would all be in jail where they belong! Biden’s paid political ads are shockingly dishonest attempts to frighten Americans into voting for Biden.
Biden is a fear mongering liar promoting political medicine, NOT medical science. Consider OutKick’s September 2020 article, “Coronavirus Survival Rate Near 100% for Most Americans.” This article lists the stunning CDC statistics by age group:
|Age range||Case survival rate, percent|
Even the corrupt CDC has admitted that only 6% of the people the media reports as covid deaths have actually died FROM Covid. The others all died WITH Covid. The actual cause of death was anything from cancer to car accidents. The deliberately misleading statistics bombarding Americans every day are courtesy of the fake news media and Internet tech giants. Why? Because they have massive financial investments in communist China, and are determined to defeat America-first Donald Trump.
Believe the candidate who stands for winning, not the one who stands for the collective
Do not believe a word Joe Biden says. Joe Biden and his family financial involvement in China makes him a national security threat. Beijing Joe Biden belongs in prison – NOT in the White House! And what about his running mate?
Beyond Kamala Harris’ radical leftist ideology, she is married to Douglas Emhoff. Whose multinational law firm, DLA Piper, employs ex-CCP officials and
boasts nearly 30 years of experience in China and over 140 lawyers dedicated to its “China Investment Services.”
Do not let lying Beijing Joe Biden and communist-linked radical leftist Kamala Harris kill the American dream! Embrace American authenticity and reject Chinese counterfeits!
WE THE PEOPLE are the American dreamers who can still make our American dreams come true. President Donald Trump’s America is built on the meritocracy. His economic policies are color-blind and put America first – all Americans. Yes, ALL Americans because ALL lives matter in Trump’s America.
Do not be ashamed to say it. ALL LIVES MATTER! Shout it from the rooftops!
Do not be ashamed to compete fairly. The meritocracy is the foundation of individualism and success.
Do not be ashamed to want to win. Never apologize for America or for wanting to be a winner.
Winning is important! Winning establishes our national American identity and national American culture of success. When Donald Trump wins America wins! Vote for Team Trump’s America-first policies and its stunning America-first record of success. Success is the winning, unifying principle that makes our American dreams come true.
