On Wednesday, the American people witnessed one of the great hallmarks and strengths of American democracy: the peaceful transition of power. Ronald Reagan described it best at his own inauguration 40 years ago:

“The orderly transfer of authority as called for in the Constitution routinely takes place as it has for almost two centuries and few of us stop to think how unique we really are. In the eyes of many in the world, this every-four-year ceremony we accept as normal is nothing less than a miracle.”

Amb. Nikki Haley often reminds us that she has visited many places where dictators rule and democracy is unheard of. Our system of government was born at a time when monarchies governed most countries. Two hundred and forty-four years later, our democratic experiment is now a beacon of hope for so many people. It’s worth pausing to remember how remarkable this American tradition is.

Of course, celebrating our democracy doesn’t mean we can’t challenge the Biden administration when it comes to policy. On day one, President Biden signed at least 17 executive orders and announced other troublesome initiatives that will damage America’s security and economy.

Just a few examples:

• Rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement, which sets unrealistic and costly climate regulations for the United States while giving large polluters, like China, a free pass.

• Canceling the Keystone XL pipeline, which was projected to sustain 11,000 jobs and help maintain American energy independence with a secure and steady supply of North American oil, instead of relying on the Middle East.

• Reversing President Trump’s exit from the World Health Organization (WHO) without holding it accountable for kowtowing to China over its coronavirus lies. Not only does this move reward the WHO’s bad behavior, it encourages China to continue exerting influence over the WHO.

These executive orders are just the tip of the iceberg. President Biden has already released plans for a massive $1.9 trillion “stimulus” bill that we talked about last week—on top of the $3.5 trillion the government has already spent on the pandemic. He has also released a far-reaching plan to give citizenship to approximately 11 million illegal immigrants without doing anything to secure the border or prioritize legal immigration. It’s not surprising that a caravan of immigrants was headed towards the border last week, hoping to gain entry under a more lax Biden administration. When you reward illegal activity, you encourage illegal activity.

And there are already reports of the Biden administration using California as its policy agenda model. Yes, the same California that has been plagued by rolling blackouts … that has one of the highest poverty rates in the country … that has watched its citizens leave in droves … that has one of the worst COVID records in the nation.

Our take: Biden is now the leader of the greatest country in the world. We hope and pray he leads the country in the right direction. If he is successful, then all Americans are successful. But we have seen and heard the Biden administration’s campaign promises, and we know there will be many disagreements in the months and years ahead. We will offer constructive policy solutions, and we will be ready to counter bad policies with the facts. Most importantly, Stand For America will continue to remind the American people that we can never stop standing for the freedom and opportunity that make this country great.

There is a very good chance Biden will succeed in what he wants to do. Like the Inauguration simply bring in the troops.
He is, after all, comander in chief...........................................................

Any predictions where (in house) the military will be needed next? My guess Texas.........

That’s probably when secession would win a vote. Wouldn’t take much to get their attention if the vote passed.
Block in the Colonial, Plantation and Goliath pipeline grind the Midwest and East coast to a halt.
Seventy percent of the countries refineries are on the gulf coast.

Texas is filing bills left and right to allow state officials to stop federal officers from carrying out unconstitutional acts.

They filed another lawsuit over the immigration deal also.

It's about to go down if he pushes. My understanding is the big money drew the line in the sand with the gov.

If you boys need us I can pull together another band of Tennessee Volunteers and head that way.

Well that’s how one side of my bunch got here was from Tennessee to the Alamo. Almaron Dickinson was also from Tennessee and an ancestor as well.
After Micajah Autry died at the Alamo his mother’s family migrated to Texas.

Finally, a discussion that is about issues and facts....not conspiracy theories! While we may disagree on many of your concerns, you make a thoughtful case without resorting to scare tactics. Dems and Repubs, left and right, we agree on about 90% of the issues, and even on the 10% it’s usually a matter of degree.
Take gun control. Very few would would think all guns should be illegal, but should everyone have a right to a bazooka or grenade launcher? It’s where you draw the line.
We need to get back to dealing with facts and not just calling each other names like Socialists or White supremicists.

Bazookas are so '40s '50s and '60s.
They use Javelins and belt fed 40mms nowadays ....... and of course, wired up motorhomes.

That line is most always crossed by a government practicing the Romanov theory of government. Shut up and do as your told. It fails every time when people can’t voice their concerns or distrust their government.

If cannons had been illegal Texans would have lost to Santa Anna. Matter of fact they were trying to confiscate them.
As usual the cannons weren’t the issue an oppressive government was.
