America Is at a Turning Point
Barry MacDonald — Editorial
At the time of this writing, after a spiteful election season, the outcome of the 2020 presidential election is being disputed. President Trump is contesting the result. President Trump should be granted the opportunity to make his case in an unhindered fashion before the entirety of the American people.
President Trump must be permitted to challenge the results of the election. The American people need to rely on the accuracy of the election; otherwise, a large percentage of Americans will lose trust and faith in the honesty of future elections — the legitimacy of government is at stake.
If Joe Biden and Kamala Harris prevail, and the Democrats gain control of the presidency, the bureaucracy, the House of Representatives, and especially of the Senate, then we may expect an onslaught of hard-left, socialistic, governing policy the likes of which America has never experienced. American conservatives may be facing difficult days ahead.
Regardless of which direction the nation takes, the editorial posture of The St. Croix Review remains steadfast. Our authors write for good-hearted Americans who seek a balanced perspective of America’s best qualities, along with a clear-eyed presentation of America’s real challenges.
We believe America has exemplary and humane ideals, and exceptional principles of law and governance. We cherish our freedoms of speech, belief, religion, association, commerce, contracts, and livelihoods. We uphold visions of fairness, of decency, of justice, and of law. We defend our right to face our accusers in open court and we are willing to abide the decisions of the juries of our peers. Our self-reliance and independence from the coercive force of government is supremely important to us.
We reject and repudiate the attempts of leftists to impose a sense of collective guilt upon us for America’s Founding and settling. American history is an inexhaustible source of inspiration, discovery, achievement, excellence, and heroism. Our children should be taught the genuine history of the American people.
America has always beckoned to the nations of the earth as a light of liberty amidst a world history that is typified as a chronicle of tyranny. America has demonstrated how to create liberty and prosperity. Our Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights serve as a shield protecting the American people from the arrogant and aggressive agents of a ruthlessly self-interested governing class.
If our Constitutional protections are overcome, an ascendant leftist governing class and its partners — bureaucrats, crony corporations, big tech giants, mainstream media, Hollywood entertainers — would subject the working and middle classes of America to a relentless campaign of disinformation, mal-education, and crushing taxation and regulation.
Our continuing prosperity depends upon the maintenance of our liberties as established by our Constitutional framework. The American dream appears as a vision of opportunity, enticing the vigorous and the enterprising to create for themselves, through the virtue of their own labor, a home, a garden, a farm, a livelihood, a fellowship, a neighborhood, and a community out of chaos.
American liberty preceded American prosperity. A broad-based and sustainable American prosperity will not long survive the subjection of American liberty.
American liberty is a fragile and precious experiment. American liberty is fragile because its precious quality is not recognized and not given the preeminence it deserves in our educational system. Politicians are constantly tempting the American people to relinquish their freedoms and opportunities in exchange for fraudulent promises and visions that are impossible to fulfill without impoverishing the nation.
The St. Croix Review is dedicated to preserving and honoring the prerequisites of American liberty. Some of these prerequisites are included in the following:
- The intellectual ferment of millennia
- Judeo-Christian faith
- Greco-Roman traditions
- Concepts of English common law
- The European ages of Reason and Enlightenment
- The courage involved in the American Revolution
- The exceptional character and intellectual prowess of America’s Founders
- The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights
- God-given rights to independence and property
- The separation of powers
- The rule of law
- Equality before the law
- The presumption of innocence
- Free speech
The St. Croix Review is on the verge of entering its 54th year of publication! We have no intention of compromising our principles. *
