There is a new story about how social media players played such a deceptive role in the election leading up to November 8th when a bright white beacon on a hill exposed every shadow and lie in the media valley by November 9th. The bright light was not just old white men; it was everyone who works hard for a living. Today, some are crying, “Change the red light to another color” and “These old-fashioned work ethics and American cultural values don’t work”. Social media and traditional media firms are at their call. However, the USA has always had a deep sense of a national destiny: one nation under God, which made its way into The Pledge of Allegiance in 1954 at the request of President Eisenhower. Hit your brakes and think about that: the United States even now has a national destiny. As a nation we recently voted to stop at a critically important red light at an even more critical intersection where American democracy and some alternative meet – will we remain one nation under God or not? The alternatives to liberty could be costly.
