America Apart: Politicians Divide

Updated on October 17, 2017
The United States of America doesn’t deserve at this moment its denomination as a unified and undivided nation. At some stage, Politicians are tearing the Country apart into racial and sectarian pieces: hate versus love, white versus black, standing versus kneeling for anthem, supremacist versus antiracist. Time is up to stop the hated and divisive words that threaten to destroy the “Union of America”. Here and now missing pieces should be put together thanks to the wisdom of those who, since the Fathers Founders, consolidate, day after day, the values of liberty and equality.

The preamble to the Constitution of the United States, depicted as the “supreme law of the land”, has been highlighted the magnitude of the union since September 17, 1787: “ We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America”. Who could deny today what has been recommended since 230 years?

Of course, Union is all for this country like suggests the fourth President, James Madison, known as the” Father of the Constitution”, in the following excerpt of The Citizens’ Almanac: “Every man who loves peace, every man who loves his country, every man who loves liberty, ought to have it ever before his eyes, that he may cherish in his heart a due attachment to the Union of America, and be able to set a due value on the means of preserving it”. With the same devotion to the Union set in the virtues of liberty and equality, the 16th President, Abraham Lincoln, delivered, on November 19, 1863 at the dedication of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery, according to The Citizens’ Almanac, one of the most important speeches in American history: “The Gettysburg Address”. The book cited above quotes this: “Abraham Lincoln’ Gettysburg Address successfully expressed the principles of liberty and equality that the United States was founded upon and proudly honored those that fought and perished for the survival of the Union”. The excerpt below exhausts the greatness of that speech: “… this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom – and the government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. “

The words and excerpts emphasized above remind everyone what kind of citizen he should be, effectively the one who daily repeats to himself the traditional motto of the United States until 1956: “ Out of many, one”( E pluribus Unum). Indeed, it’s not about Black or White, love or hate, kneeling or standing, supremacist or antiracist, it is about a personal dedication to the great values of liberty and equality exalted by the Fathers Founders of this Nation, celebrated as one, indivisible and equal . That’s the royal way to gird on the stone walls with a fraternal human rampart.
