Nobody Remembers John Cotton and John Wayne Walding
UPDATE: Before I start into my little history bit, I think it’s fair to say that the man who won the debate tonight, and who will ALWAYS be remembered by most Americans was John Wayne Walding.
I didn’t watch the FOX debate, of course, but I can tell from the face of Megyn Kelly in her after show, that the viewership was worse than they imagined.
I watched Trump’s event for the veterans, and it was the vets, and especially John Wayne Walding…who stole the show from everybody, including Donald Trump.
Which proves to you that Donald Trump knows what he is doing.
Who won the debate tonight? John Wayne Walding…an American vet who lost his leg serving in Afghanistan and the other vets he bought on stage who let us all know, that 22 vets a DAY commit suicide. It will be John Wayne Walding…that everybody will remember tonight, which leads up to this bit of history that fits the night:
A speech by John Cotton, who preached the farewell sermon to John Winthrop’s fleet that headed for America on the Arbella…the first governor of Massachusetts Bay.
John Cotton eventually fled King Charles, and became the first minister at the First church in Boston, serving from 1633 to 1652. The Harvard historian and expert on the Puritans Perry Miller called him “the dominating figure in the councils of the New England clergy” who “se the model for New England orthodoxy.”
Cotton wrote in 1644:
“The People, in whom fundamentally all power lyes,” said it was necessary “that all power that is on earth be limited, Church power or other.”
At the time, it was the Catholic Church that the Puritans were running from, because James II was a Catholic who revoked the original charter of Massachusetts Bay.
And so…long before the revolution, the American people wanted to rule their own lives…and that’s why they got angry when James II started taking away their rights.
So…I ask myself…. are we at a time when Americans are seeing the tyranny in the distant land called Washington D.C., looking much like like the Monarchy in merry old England?
Will the American people join together in the near future to try to claim their country back, like their forefathers did?
Seeing those vets on stage tonight, reminded Americans, that America is great, not because of her politicians, but because of her people. We need to hear more from the people, and LESS from all the politicians.
I think you could actually apply that same rule in every country on the planet.
Donald Trump…by doing what he did tonight…showed America, that it’s all about THEM. That’s what he was trying to do.
John Cotton, and John Winthrop, would be proud.
