    Westphalia's End

    WAKE UP!
    "The will of men is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided. Men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence. It does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, until each nation is reduced to be nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd."
    – Alexis de Tocqueville

    One of his conclusions was: "America is great because America is good. If she ceases to be good she will cease to be great." I may not have every word exact but the meaning is. And we no longer qualify for greatness. Progressives have destroyed the goodness of this country and the religion upon which the morality was based.
