Formally stated, Sir Issac Newton’s third law is: “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” The statement means that in every interaction, there is a pair of forces acting on the two interacting objects. The size of the forces on the first object equals the size of the force on the second object.
This is as true in psychology and politics, as it is in physics.
The action of toppling the status of Christopher Columbus yesterday in Little Italy is a reaction of the left to the election and probable re-election of President Donald Trump. It also happened due to the frustration of the left to remove President Trump from office since his election four years ago.
As I stated, in a previous post, there WILL BE an equal and opposite reaction to the rioting and the tearing down of statues – the reelection of President Trump.
When the dust settles, and the left tries to figures out why their candidate did not win, the answer will be apparent to anyone who has studied human behavior – President Trump will win because the left pushed too hard to erase the idea of what it means to be American.
To force the removal of history by violence (or the threat of violence), will cause a guttural push-back from the silent majority which will ensure a second term for Trump.
The practical issue is one of governance before and after the election.
It is very important Governor’s and State Legislative bodies take charge and effectively manage their cities. Cities do not have ANY Sovereignty. They are given authority by States to provide local services to people. I have never been a citizen of Baltimore County but I am a citizen of the State of Maryland. State Legislatures and Governors need to step up and show LEADERSHIP NOW!!
If this is not done, if the states do not enforce its Sovereignty, I am very afraid of what our country will look like after November 4, 2020. Without strong leadership, our communities can “act and react” to each other in a downward spiral which will cost the lives, liberties and property of every one of us.
I pray our elected officials become leaders before it is too late to save our Republic!
