The Humbling of the American Mind
Updated: Aug 22, 2021
Some of you may or may not know, but George Bush Senior President '41 was one of those Presidents that had to follow the footsteps of President Ronald Reagan and try to meet the expectations that Reagan set. Again, amazing from a Federalist 2.0 point of view in how Bush '41 was able to keep things moving inspite of challenges that he faced. With a successful Gulf War that ended in the containment of Saddam Hussain, he was painted to be someone that was not able to navigate the economic matters of the United States, as a one term President he marshaled in a new era for Bill Clinton, but for only the Gulf War he will not be remembered for much more. But one of the hallmarks of the Senior Bush was his ability to maintain composure and a sense of "Humility" that allowed him to be an example of Humility, or the story goes.
You may or may not fully agree with this notion, but a sense of Humility in a President has not been a hallmark for the past several presidents, both Obama and Clinton were not the hallmarks of a Humble President, and we know for a fact Trump was not the definition of Humility:
But for some reason, we as a nation fell in love with the notion of "Make America Great Again" and the hope that we could shake off the slow decent into Socialism that started in those early days after Ronald Reagan. The slow decline and assumption that America may have seen it's heyday and that we are that super power that will now be a "Has been". No there was a portion of the population that still believed in the uniqueness of the American Way and the possibility that we could maintain our greatness and our ability to be that shining light on the hill.
As a child and young adult, I had a sense that the United States of America was that shining light on a hill. Thousands of people a year flowed to the US, legal and illegal to participate in the experiment called America. That influx and hope provided the belief and expectation that we were in charge of our own destiny as a population, as citizens, so somehow this would make the U.S. "Better" than other nations. The notion and belief that we were more advanced than those "Socialist" countries whom required or needed the help of the State to manage internal affairs. We, as Americans, could do that ourselves, we could manage our own affairs. Or so we thought.
This belief, this assumption we have carried from generation to generation has given America a sense of superiority that other nations envied. The US arrogance has grown and we had become a larger sense of ourselves.
But as we have learned through the development of the Federalist 2.0 efforts, the growth of pride can also come with consequences that are unintentional. The growth of this MAGA thought pattern has been overthrown by the concepts of Socialism and in cases Marxism, to our dismay I might add.
In a lifetime I could not imagine that we could make our way to this place. It is a hard pill to swallow to realize that our constitution is not an idea that all understand or have clarity enough to defend.
I, as a true blooded American, have been truly humbled.

In this humility, I have not shed a tear because I shed my tears some 12 years ago after writing the 5 papers that make up the core of the Federalist 2.0. In that time, I realized the challenge we faced and the severity of our situation. I did shed tears in completing that work and realizing what I had done to rebirth the core of the Constitution and the core of humanity.
This movement has been driven on the one notion that...
...there is NO SOLUTION to using the hands of government for good... ...for every step taken to take control and do good, requires the need to harm another individual’s freewill... ... it puts power in men and women that seek more power... ...in the end they damage freewill in their citizens the claim to lead and impact the human soul in untold horrific ways... ...in doing so one accidentally removes those citizen’s ability to pursue their own happiness...

So... my friends... if you read this, and follow this notion. You may have shed tears as we watch events unfold. You may have spent hours in tears wondering how this can happen, how is this possible? May have spent time and money hoping and praying for the Hail Mary pass that never came.
But we must not fret, for these events are the normal course of mankind. Those that have given up their souls to a life of vice and crime take heed of their surroundings and commit to the premise there is Justice to “the legal plunder of the human soul to do their brand of so called good”. In that pursuit, they do not know what they do, nor do they fully comprehend the circumstances they set in motion.
And with this case of socialism being made and our social structure unable to formulate a comprehensive strategy to compare and contrast this thought, "we do get the government we deserve".
In contemplating this post, I was able to connect with a friend whom came from a Latin Country in North America. He made a profound comment to me, "Now you know how we feel in Latin America with the population not fully able to make political change for the betterment of their citizens. These events, in a positive light, humbles the American Soul, and that is good."
This stood as a point of reference to me, are we like all the other nations in Latin America? Again, it would seem, we are all the same in this sense, there is a political class that will not so lightly give up their own declared "Right" to steer the ship we call the United States of America. But this is where we have a chance to FIGHT BACK WITHOUT VIOLENCE! This is critical, additional "Fighting" will only strengthen the other side, give it fuel to show they are right, to grow their political might.
This is a time to reflect and determine whom was on the other side, and make efforts to educate those that do not know the purpose of the Constitution and the consequences we are enduring for ignoring the concepts within that document. An article appeared in an online post from a famous tech leader, they wrote the following;
I’m a student of history, and I have never once been more concerned for freedom, here and abroad, than I am at this moment. The Left is playing god here. This will not end well for anyone in this country, or anyone in the free world.
This dangerously naive idea that you can unleash the dogs of fascism and censorship with precision against your enemies (e.g., Trump, Parler, Republicans) is devoid of any understanding of humans and systems.
The determinations by humans as to what constitutes "free speech" and "hate speech" and "dangerous" speech is inherently subjective, arbitrary, and ever changing. Look no further than the Orwellian euphemisms employed in 2020 to rationalize the anarchy of the ANTIFA and BLM-led riots.
The collateral damage will be boundless, creating new enemies which will require more blunt force measures, which will in turn generate more hostile reactions, creating more collateral damage, and so on.
We have opened the Gates of Hell and it’s a one-way passage for all. There will be no immunity for the wealthy, the power hungry, or the virtue signaling among us.
This isn’t a warning or threat; it’s a history lesson.

Yes, indeed this will be a history lesson for the United States of America. The lesson #1 will be that we are not as great as we thought we were or that which we could be. That the overall Socialist and Marxist agenda can succeed if you can convince enough people to abandon the notion of God and embrace the concepts of Socialism. You can do it if you also twist the rules for voting as we have seen happen to gain an advantage in an election. (See my post on Why Vote?)
Yes one can succeed in doing all of this social engineering for social “Good”, and yes we can say that this is a very hard pill to swallow and a VERY bitter Medicine indeed. We can say to those Democrats and Republicans that embrace Socialism as their temporary friend. We do see you and we do understand what it is you are trying to do, it’s not that we do not agree with the noble causes you pursue, it’s just they cannot be achieved due to the fallibility of mankind.
But there are ways to move forward in a peaceful manner, that do not need aggression and violence. Our founding fathers provided this through the use of our Representatives and Senators. This path is the path we must now take. Every position in office must be targeted and positioned to have an individual with a conservative mind gain office, armed with the words and deeds necessary to help the citizens understand this is no Sports Event. Your life, our life and our livelihood is in the balance.
The conservatives need no alignment nor do we need education on the purpose and approach that the Left, the Socialists and Marxists want to take. We know of the good intentions and many cases there are those of us that agree to the intentions put fourth for the proposed approach, but for one problem. It never works....
....So which should we have... Socialism or Autocracy?
Maybe there is a third way... the way outlined in the US Constitution...
Needless to say there has been many attempts at gaining control by the rich and the wealthy. The people that create wealth, and with President Ronald Regan we saw some incredible wealth and growth at the hands of capitalism. We saw this chipped away with Clinton and Obama, but with Trump, it was reduced to similar rates as President Ronald Regan years.
But what we do all have to look forward to observing, is the ability of the Biden Government to match what Trump has done in the past 4 years. Here is what we are looking at from this site that has been documented. Trump, from a private citizen, stepping into office and completely knocking it out of the park from a Federalist 2.0 perspective. Now for the Government Deep State and the Socialists, this is a nightmare. No wonder there is a desire to keep him away from office again. They have been shown the citizens they are only people that are focused on playing their politics and raiding the US Treasury in showing whom has the most power and influence.
Here are 77 accomplishments by Trump and his team:
So, in the end, we have been humbled. We have been struck down, but in striking us, the U.S. Citizen down, you have made us re-assess our approach and determine that in our Humility we had under estimated the extent the other side would go to ensure their own victory. But in the Democrats efforts, they have exposed that which was known to be true, we do now know for a fact that there is a Political Class and we do now know to what extent they will go to protect their positions of power and wealth.
Some indication not all Socialists are happy...
From a Federalist 2.0 prospective, you are justified in grieving that which has been lost and you are right in your anger and determination to not let this happen again. But in those emotions, remember there is another side here. One that includes our citizens that have lost their way. It is our own way that will bring them back. And there is no need to call to Arms at this time. We are still the United States of America, and we are still needing to keep that faith to have a fighting chance in 2022 and beyond.
With some sense of contentment, we have succeeded where no other nation has in the past, we have put on display that which needed to happen and now we have...
... set in place a process such that the Left must become that which they despise to succeed.
In the creation of the Federalist 2.0, it is our goal and commitment to you the reader, to share with you the pieces of the original intent of the US Constitution and Declaration of Independence and why it is critical that we claim this moral imperative to ensure the health and safety of our future generations and our capacity to continue as the Originally Planned United States of America.
Come join the Federalist 2.0 effort, help us resurrect the beliefs and understandings that made this United States of America the greatest nation on the planet to date. Let's make America great once more!
In the end, what do you have to lose?.... Maybe you can be Publius too?
