Letter: Rebuild on early foundation

The founders of the greatest nation shall forever by remembered for two immortal documents, The Declaration of Independence (1776) and The Constitution of the United States of America (1789).

One hundred and fifty years ago, the races began coming together as one nation. President Lincoln submitted the 13th Amendment ending slavery, which passed both houses of Congress (Jan. 31, 1865) and was ratified by the states (Dec. 6, 1865). The races coming together moved slowly the first 100 years. World War II brought many blacks and whites working together supporting both industry and the military. Later came individuals like Rosa Parks, Jackie Robinson, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., etc.

During the last 50 years, things turned around as many social programs such as welfare (breaking apart families) were dividing the country into various groups.

Today we find ourselves pitted against one another dealing with one's wealth, religion, gender, sexual preference, race, etc.

To understand the following, please read Karl Marx "Communist Manifesto." Year after year, the population needing government to supply their daily needs (clothing, food and shelter) continues to grow. This is a form of fascism which leads to communism with the government controlling all public and private segments of our country.

Please remember that "United we stand, divided we fall."
