The Reader’s Digest Great Encyclopedia Dictionary provides seven possible definitions of the word: rhetoric. I picked number four: “…Affected and exaggerated display in the use of language.” I did this with intent as do those who overstate their stance on what ultimately affects We the People. Of course, I know the nature of rhetoric is to affect the minds of the listener but more than that—to sway We the People to segregate.
Rhetoric built every society on Earth and—if you eavesdropped in history class—it likewise destroyed sovereignty (independence).
Rhetoric also means the art of discourse—at home; at school; in church; laws; with neighbors; the Constitution; etc.—all seemingly in the clear. Well, until affected by an exaggerated display in the use of language that pigeonhole…We the People.
The 14th Amendment, ratified in 1868, grants to “…all persons born or naturalized in the U.S. and subject to the jurisdiction thereof… In other words, all babies born in America are automatically Americans; granted ALL of our hard-fought rights. Currently the practice is middle-class women from China; in droves. This, well, I can’t imagine China turns its powerful head and says… “Oh do whatever you want.” Nope! Maybe, instead, without ever drawing a Dao Sword (in English often called a broadsword) these babies, as they mature can bring any parental representative into America. Oh, how about when their old enough to vote?
I wanna know what love is. I want you to show me.
It didn’t pass – the results in the U.S. Senate: 61 against and 38 to ratify a United Nations Convention on the rights of Persons with Disabilities. The treaty would have surrendered U.S. sovereignty to unelected UN bureaucrats and would threaten parental control over children with disabilities. Our nation already has laws to protect disabled Americans. Still, how did this even make it out of Senate Committee let alone 38 U.S. senators voting for it. Wasn’t it Hitler who quantified a certain sect of peoples who didn’t mesh with what he coined his master race.
