Everyone is familiar with the phrase that comprises the title of this article. It’s a simple phrase, as a counter to the Divide and Conquer mantra. Patrick Henry used the phrase in his last public speech, given in March 1799, in which he denounced The Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions. Clasping his hands and swaying unsteadily, Henry declaimed, “Let us trust God, and our better judgment to set us right hereafter. United we stand, divided we fall. Let us not split into factions which must destroy that union upon which our existence hangs.” At the end of his oration, Henry fell into the arms of bystanders and was carried almost lifeless into a nearby tavern. Two months afterward, he had died.
The American people know of and clearly understand the premise behind this phrase, but yet fail to understand how important it truly is. Over the last few decades, it seems that the importance has been long forgotten in the gluttony of high lifestyles, fancy cars, big TV’s and five-dollar cups of coffee from Starbuck’s. We have unknowingly been socially organized into different groups, with different mindsets.
The social engineers have driven the nation, politically, into two prominent sides, Left and Right or Liberal and Conservative. This divide has grown strong and in many cases hateful. But it doesn’t stop there. The social engineers have also divided the American people along the lines of race, pitting white against black, with Latino’s against both most recently using illegal immigration as a front. Rich against poor, Big Agriculture against small farmers, Big Pharma against natural medicines, young against old, environmentalists against conservationists. The list goes on and on.
This isn’t by accident by any means, it’s totally designed to achieve a goal. We are an armed society. That, on it’s own would deter any Government to become overly oppressive. In our country today, if a group of citizens took up arms against government, that group would be destroyed and given a very negative moniker. It wouldn’t matter how oppressive our Government gets, an armed revolt against the oppression would be publically decried. In fact, armed civilian militias are already looked down upon, despite the fact for the most part their existence has been and is defensive only.
This has been a long process. Social engineering an armed society into absolute division is the goal, and it is working very well. Too well I’m afraid. In many ways we have become a very divided citizenry. This can only lead to one outcome. It is an ongoing process, with the MSM and elected officials in the lead. Divisions will only worsen, unless people realize what is happening, put aside their differences, and unite to stop the one thing that threatens the very fabric of our society. Our divisions have allowed for oppression to take hold, and it’s grip is getting tighter and tighter each day.
If freedom is what you desire, if you would like to live without tyranny and oppression, if you would like to be free to prosper, eat what you want, travel freely, or just be happy in life, then I suggest you take a look at what is happening all around us. The examples of oppression are million candlepower lightbulbs, they surround us in such scale that they are easy to indentify. However, they are bulbs that have become so bright that we are blinded by them.
How can we stop the divisions between us? Is it even possible at this point in our society, or are we doomed to being ruled by a government that steadily increases the level of oppression? Are our efforts to fix Government focused in the wrong direction, when we should be focusing on ourselves first?
Let’s discuss all the oppression that is reaped upon us, and then let’s find a way to end the division and unite. A citizenry that is divided, will be conquered. A citizenry that is united, is our only hope for the future of a free America.
United we stand, divided we will fall.
