The speech given today by Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) on her vote to advance the confirmation process of Bret Kavanaugh as the next Supreme Court Justice of the United States will inform and hearten anyone who has been carefully following the Senate hearings, particularly the hearings of alleged (but unsubstantiated) sexual misconduct when Kavanaugh was in high school.
It will inform and hearten all who have great concern over the fear of losing one of the founding judicial premises of our system of governance: “innocent until proven guilty.”
It will inform and hearten all who have been praying for justice in this case.
But buckle your seat belts, friends.
Most of those who are getting seriously close to ruling by mobocracy will not be backing down.
Like separate fires that combine to create firestorms of far greater intensity and destructive power than individual conflagrations, Far Left groups will likely combine forces to go even further in their quest of what some theorize is a “soft coup” to “fundamentally transform” America into another form of governance because there comes a point when emotions intensify to blind one to reason and become their own raison d’être not only for individuals but also for like-minded groups.
By all appearances, it seems the “transformation” might have everything to do with making us into a socialist system, and if anti-Second Amendment activists have their way, to push us even further into communism which is historically what happens when our right to bear arms is taken away.
Sadly, however, many activists missed that historical information in history classes of recent years.
But for now, if this aligns with your concerns, hopes, and prayers of late, be encouraged; stay awake, aware, and alert; and especially, this year, vote.
