The Battle Hymn of the Republic
There are multiple indicators that America is headed toward a second Civil War.
This new Civil War is not about the Southern states secession from the Republic. Rather this new Civil War is about those who want to fundamentally transform America. It’s between those who embrace liberty against those who are hell bent on imposing a tyrannical government upon American citizens.
It is in essence a battle between patriots and tyrants.
One group of Americans, the patriots, believe that the United States is a Constitutional Republic where the power lies in the hands of each legal citizen not government. Patriots put their trust in God, not government, for their redemption. This group embraces free and fair elections, the imperative that only legal citizens of the U.S. have a right to vote and want voter IDs to identify themselves, and others, as legal voters.
The second group, the tyrants, believe that the United States is a democracy where 51% of the voters can dictate to the other 49% how to live, work and play. This group is willing to allow illegal non-citizens and dead people to vote. This group calls any voter ID laws racist. This group has no problem allowing elections to be stolen. This group believes that God is the opiate of the people and that government, not God, is in control.
The Second Civil War – Patriots vs. Tyrants
A new ABC News/Ipsos poll found that 55% of respondents say they are pessimistic about the direction of the country for the next 12 months. This is significant because it represents a nearly 20 percentage point drop in the same poll that was taken in May, when 36% of Americans were pessimistic and 64% were optimistic about the nation’s future. Declines in optimism were from Republicans, independents, and Democrats.
This is the beginning of a new awakening that there is something fundamentally wrong with where we are headed as a nation, culture and a unique society. There are many who are worried that their children and grandchildren will not be growing up in a free society.
The current policies of the Biden administration are leading us to a totalitarian government bent on control of its citizens using every means available to it.
This administration is using its powers to imprison those who disagree with it. Big Tech is wantonly censoring certain views. Freedom of speech is threatened. Individual choices are being replace by government mandates, e.g. vaccine passports.
The free market is being replaced with government imposed lockdowns. Tyranny is raising its ugly head using fear as their hammer to pound on our religious liberties, freedom of speech and unalienable right to keep and bear arms.
History Repeats Itself
We are seeing history repeat itself.
America in 2021 is reminiscent of Germany in 1933.
The anti-Fascists are in-fact Fascists. Antifa and Black Lives Matter are the new Brown Shirts and SS of Nazi era Germany.
In the 1947 book “Nuremberg Diary” Gustave M. Gilbert, a psychologist who had access to the prisoners during the trials, describes a discussion with Herman Goering, one of the most powerful figures in the Nazi Party.
Gilbert asked Goering “how did the Nazi Party force the German people to go to war”, to which Goering responded:
“…It is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship.”
Goering was reminded by Gilbert that,
“in a democracy the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives.”
Goering responded that,
“[V]oice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”
We are seeing this happen today with Biden and his handlers creating fear using Covid, the January 6th mostly peaceful demonstration in Washington, D.C. and the false flag of “white supremacism” to “drag people along” to attack their neighbors and friends for being patriots.

It is only a matter of time before there is a second Civil War.
This new civil war will be between patriots and tyrants.
The goal of the tyrants is to destroy America and with it western civilization. The goal of patriots is to protect and defend our Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.
The methodology of the tyrant is to rewrite history, e.g. Critical Race Theory, and literally tear down Civil War memorials to keep the young from understanding American history, especially the Civil War that reunited the Republic and freed the slaves.
The more government tries to take control the more the people will push back against it.
Violence may be necessary to restore our freedoms. As Thomas Jefferson wrote:
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
Time will tell if it becomes a shooting war. We hope that it doesn’t. However, if Biden continues down the path he and his handlers are on, nothing can stop him short of a revolution.
Are you a patriot or a tyrant? Choose wisely.
