This year of 2020 has been a year that has brought much change. The China Virus alone has caused a realignment of priorities in the life of many. The Marxist movement of Black Lives Matter has also revealed aspects of racism that in the past have been discussed but have now been exposed.
What we suspected in the past but now know, is that the independent spirit that has always been a part of the American mystic has left a large part of the American public. Much of the American public no longer questions government but instead has become an extremely compliant people. Independence and freedom can only survive when people are highly suspect of government. Our founders and early Americans understood that when people viewed government as their friend, as Obama told Americans they should, that the people already had at least one foot in the trap of becoming enslaved.
What we have come to realize as well is that the so-called leaders in the Black community, the Reverends, are racists. These Reverends have shown how they have used those they are claiming to help for power and self-enrichment. The Black Lives Matter slogan is the epitome of racism, and is spoken by racists and hypocrites. The racist element is exposed just on the face of the statement. Any modifier used to change the meaning of lives matter reveals racism. The hypocrisy is revealed when it becomes irrefutable that the only life that matters, black or otherwise, is the one that can bring more power and riches to the Reverends and others who are in the power and rich domain. It is becoming more and more evident that the monolithic voting block is becoming more diverse and it is doing so quickly.
As importantly is that many of the American people are realigning priorities. Parts of their lives that they thought were critical, they have learned have been a waste of time and money. Many people now understand how intellectually challenged are so many of the celebrities and athletes from whom they used to gather their ideas. People have learned that the cost and time of going to the movie theater is now on a much lower priority level. The cost and time of attending pro sports events to watch morally corrupt, intellectually challenged, and American hating people perform is way down the priority list if not completely removed. If colleges and universities continue on their course, they will learn that they have also done damage that will take years to rebuild if ever.
Perhaps the most critical event that has been revealed is just how harmful the public-school system has become because of Marxist Teachers Unions and Marxist bureaucrats. Parents are learning that the education, reading, writing, math, science, accurate history, of their children is low on the rung of priorities of Teachers Unions, School Boards, and others who have any control over public-schools. Responsible parents, which most are, will be looking to alternative options for educating their children. This will become even more apparent as parents hear how their children have been and are being indoctrinated in the Marxist movement which includes the desire to destroy the core family unit in the United States. This has become the primary purpose of Teachers Unions and public schools.

Samuel Adams said, “It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” If we are to remain free, we must be about setting brushfires of freedom.
