Biden’s Anti-Unity Agenda

President Joe Biden focused on the theme of unity in his inaugural address.

“Today, on this January day, my whole soul is in this: bringing America together, uniting our people and uniting our nation,” he said.

It sounds so nice. But only a career politician can be this disingenuous and speak the words as if he were so, so sincere.

If Biden’s top priority were really unity, would he really have allowed a trial of former President Donald Trump to move forward in the Senate? Or immediately signed 30 executive orders in his first three days in the Oval Office, many of which focused on undoing and dismantling Trump’s policies?

Such actions immediately alienate the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump.

Appreciating that if you want to know what someone is about, pay attention to what they do, not what they say, it is obvious that Biden’s concern is advancing the left-wing agenda of his party, not unity.

On the other hand, there probably wouldn’t be much difference with a Republican president. Republicans would be pushing for the president to advance their agenda. The game is to defeat the opposition, not unity.

So, what about unity? Is unity something we should care about?

After all, this is the United States of America, so named by the founders in 1776.

Eleven years later, in 1787, the Constitution was adopted, the preamble of which explains its purpose to “form a more perfect Union.”

The glue holding together what the founders called the United States is adherence to the principles upon which the country was founded. We can read them clearly in the Declaration of Independence: “(A)ll men are created equal … they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. … That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men.”

The country is about individual freedom and the purpose of government to protect that freedom. The Constitution was designed to define more clearly legitimate tasks of the federal government, and to keep government within those boundaries. This is what makes us the United States.

Unity broke down and led to civil war because one of the core principles — protecting the rights of all men — was violated by the presence of slavery.

When we all accept the core principles that enable us to be free and the limited role of the federal government as defined in the Constitution, we function successfully as a unified country, and we grow and prosper.

It means each of us respects the uniqueness and freedom of each of our neighbors.

Reading through Joe Biden’s laundry list of what he calls unity, we see a list of everything that pulls us apart: “We can right wrongs. We can put people to work in good jobs. We can teach our children in safe schools. … We can reward work, rebuild the middle class … We can deliver racial justice. We can make America, once again, the leading force for good in the world.”

I would never rely on Joe Biden to define for me right and wrong, to decide how to create “good jobs” or “rebuild the middle class.”

Joe Biden’s idea of unity is more government and more politics. This means forcing all Americans to buy into his values — something that will never happen — and the idea that government can micromanage our lives.

This is exactly where things have been going, and this is why it’s all breaking down.

For perspective: Combined federal, state and local government spending as a percent of gross domestic product — our entire economy — in 2020 was 39.8%. A mind-boggling 40% of our entire economy in 2020 was controlled by government. In 2000, it was 26%. In 1950, 17.7%, and in 1900, 6.8%.

We should indeed strive for unity — unity around the principles upon which the nation was founded.

  1. Anyone who watched the campaign and knew Biden’s history would have known he is all talk and no walk, and that he will be controlled by a left-wing group intent on installing their corrupt agenda. No matter what Biden may think, he will never be the one who is really in charge. Do you think he actually came up with the 30 EO’s he signed the first two days? There will always be someone else calling the shots. We have a President who sits in the chair and a shadow president who pulls the marionette strings.

    1. You are so spot on! TALK IS CHEAP, AND BIDEN’s words are some of the cheapest! He listened to Obama for 8 years and is well schooled in cheap talk!

  2. I’d still would like to know where is our justice system in reference to the faux election reports, the Biden family investigation, the biased news media, etc.

          1. Not Comp, no, not Comp!!
            The place is called Cocomo
            If this changes again, I will have a anurysm.

  3. Sure can’t disagree with what you say, How he got elected is one of the biggest mysteries of our nation but of course if you take into account he and the demoncrates cheated then you have the answer.

    1. Fertilizer walks, and money talks.
      From what I see, a whole lot of it is in Washington, DC.
      As well as Do minion.
      P.A, N. Y, GA. Mich.

  4. Soros is the puppet master and little Shoe Shine from wherever is pulling the strings sitting the United States up for complete failure…All planned starting in 2008…

    1. If soros was a conservative (wealth and all) and pushing a conservative agenda, what would the democrats be doing about it?

  5. my thoughts cannot be aired, as they are seditious. Mo people need to read the cunstitution ab\d bill of rights.

  6. But, we have more wonderful “firsts.” First senile demented President. First common crook. First pedophile. First plagiarist. First cheater to gain the Office. Also, the first President to be a figurehead while the DNC and other shadow figures dictate what is said and done.
    It’s nap time. Don’t wake him. He may have an original thought and that would be dangerous. No President has been as bad as Bathhouse Barry the Chicago Fairy, but Quid Pro China Joe will be an able contestant for another first. The worst President ever, even worse than Bathhouse, if that is possible.

    1. Excellent point Calvin King. That would bounce jimmy carter down to 3rd place. Do we have a 4th…. biden is always in nap mode. He has been napping for 47 years.

  7. I BET THE ONE RUNNING OUR COUNTRY IS OBOZO FROM KENYA, AFRICA. HE IS THE ONE WHO IS TELLING JOE WHO AND WHAT TO DISMANTLE. HE IS TREASONOUS AND NEEDS TO BE IMPRISONED. AND NEVER BE ABAILED OUT. HE TRIED TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY FOR 8 YEARS CAUSE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND INTERNATIONAL CRIMINALS HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT. HE WAS GROOMED BY A TERRORIST. AND HE IS STILL MEDDLING WITH OUR ELECTIONS, HE RUNS A SHADOW GOVERNMENT AND HE NEED TO BE PUT AWAY ! ALONG WITH THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN CHEATING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE OUT OF A GOOD LIFE AND PELOSI IS HELPING HIM. AMERICANS WAKE UP AND DO NOT LET THIS CRIMINAL PELOSI DESTROY THE BEST WE HAVE.

  8. I’ve wanted to let President Trump know that I continuously defend him!You did an Amazing job at President & endured so much disrepect & false accusations!They want to harm all of us that support you.Biden is destroying America & undoing all of your accomplishments.Tell me, is it safe to take the vaccine?

    1. If you have any allergies to Medication , Bee stings etc. then the answer to your question is NO and that CAME FROM THE CDC. DO NOT take the COVID 19 vaccine at this time !

  9. PRESIDENT TRUMP IS MY PRESIEDENT AND ALWAYS WILL BE. BIDEN WILL NEVER BE MY PRESIDENT AND I WILL NEVER CALL HIM THAT. GOD HELP US ALL FOR THE EVIL THAT HAS TAKEN OVER OUR COUNTRY

  10. WITH ALL BIDENS EXECUTIVE ORDERS HE IS INCREASING A CIVIL WAR. HE FORGETS THAT WE THE PEOPLE HAVE HAD ENOUGH AND HE ISN’T A DICTATOR LIKE HE WANTS TO BE. OBAMA WANTS ALL THESE ORDERS AND THE PUPPET IS USING EXECUTIVE ORDERS. IF THE IMPEACHMENT OF PRESIDENT TRUMP GOES THRU THEN THE DEMS ARE LOOKING AT SEVERAL IMPEACHMENTS LIKE BIDEN, OBAMA, CLINTONS, CARTER, PELOSI, SCHUMER AOC AND MANY MORE. THEY ARE THE SWAMPERS.
