Meet Dwight Patel

I truly believe in the American dream of pulling one’s self up by the bootstraps. I have heard too many stories within my family and outside of my family of how people came to America with little as $20.00 in their pocket, and through hard work, they achieve the American Dream.

In America, if you work hard, you can get ahead. I think the best thing the Federal, State, or local governments can do it get out of the way of the people.

I have heard too many stories from a former Iceman from Baltimore, with a 7th Grade education to immigrants who come to America with little as $20 dollars in pocket to achieving the American Dream. If your listen to the left today they’d say the “American Dream” is dead, but they are WRONG. There is ONLY an American Dream and it is alive and well. We see it when legal aliens become US Citizens, for many that is the happiest day of their lives.

This is what makes America Exceptional - anyone from anywhere can live the American Dream. Let’s face facts, there isn’t a German, French or English Dream. Its an American Dream, and it is alive and well. The progressive left fails to understand the dream. To be successful you need hard work and opportunity and too many of our policies prevent upward mobilization. Too many policies trap people to a class — keep them in a cycle of poverty and reliance on the welfare of others.

America is a lot like the proverb “…You can take a horse to the water, but you can’t make it drink…” America is the water, plenty and bountiful, but one must take a drink from America.

Everyone who works hard in America, will succeed in America!

Politically Correct

By Anne Koutsoutis

Political correctness (PC) first received widespread publicity in the media in the 1970’s when the National Organization for Women (NOW) proposed such language revisions as “chair” or “chairperson” instead of “chairman.”
The aim of the movement was to suppress thoughts or statements deemed offensive, prejudicial or stereotypical – anything that might intimidate people or make them feel uneasy. The original intent of the PC movement, being polite to others and promoting tolerance and diversity were good and honorable. Fifty-two years later the proponents of PC still argue that PC is needed to recognize tolerance and equality in a multi-cultural society.   
Instead of tolerance and equality, the PC movement has created a powerful social code that members of society have to follow in order to succeed and to be approved. It is a rigid orthodoxy precludes the acceptability of an opposing opinion. Anyone who raises a contrary view must be “ignored, shunned, denounced, attacked or silenced.” PC is inconsistent with free political life. It insists on rigid ideological conformity and makes discussion of fundamental issues and thus self- government impossible by forbidding even language used to discuss good and bad. It does not give us freedom; it gives us a soul-destroying tyranny. Entrepreneur David Sacks praised the takeover of Twitter by Elon Musk, calling it a “Berlin Wall Moment.” He called it “capitalism’s self-correcting mechanism” where somebody can push back against the “galloping wave of censorship” silencing people by the simple process of “de-platforming” anyone with contrary views. 
America needs a “Berlin Wall Moment.” Let’s hope the wall of censorship does begin to crack.
