America’s In Trouble Because Nobody Respects Rules

My wife and I try to instill in our kids the same values that were instilled in us growing up.  Honor.  Dignity.  Faith.  Love.  Respect for rules.

Unfortunately, it appears as if there’s no such thing as “rules” to some people in this country.  

Over the weekend, the University of New Hampshire put up this post on Facebook:

“If you’ve applied or been admitted to UNH you should know any disciplinary action stemming from peaceful protests exercising your first amendment rights will not jeopardize your admission decision. We support your right to stand up for what you believe in.”

Allow me to summarize.  Break the rules that align with OUR liberal politics and you’re fine.

Just make sure you don’t screw up a thing on your application or submit it a few hours past deadline.  THAT would cause disqualification.  But breaking the rules when it comes to our politics?  We’re cool with that.

I called the school out on it.  And what happened?  Snowflakes began melting in defense of the college.

Of course, not a single one could make a logical argument as to why encouraging kids to break the rules is acceptable.  Rules don’t matter to them.  Only feelings do.

Not totally on board with me yet?  Look no further than illegal aliens.

Across the country, “lawmakers” are spitting in the face of the law … creating “sanctuary cities” and fighting to keep criminals here in the United States that should be deported.

After all, why support our laws and our citizens?  That clashes with liberal FEELINGS.

Look at ANTIFA.  A bunch of unemployed, petulant millennials who can’t find anyone to pay attention to them decides to attack police and veterans, cause damage and start fires … and Democrats raise the flag of RESIST behind them.

Respect is gone.  Kids don’t know basic flag etiquette because apparently there’s not enough time in the classroom, but we’re teaching them about anal sex in fourth grade of some schools.

We aren’t allowed to talk about God in school … but in many classrooms teachers are forcing students to re-create a path of Islam.

Look no further than the last election.  The same woman who – had she not been Hillary Clinton – would have been serving life in prison – was the horse with the most money on her in the race.

Bradley Manning, a guy who should have been executed for treason, wasn’t just pardoned because he’s transgender … he is receiving support to run for office now that he’s out.

We used to be a nation of laws.  If we’re going to stay a nation at all, we’d better get back to those values.  Because right now … we’re in BIG trouble.
