The Crater That Divides Us

If you think about it, the average American just wants to live their life in peace.  They work or run small businesses, they spend time off enjoying company of family, friends and neighbors.  We raise our children and spend precious time with our grandchildren.  Americans are good people who care about their loved ones and their community. Sure we have our personal troubles, but for the most part, we just want to live our lives without the added drama.  After all, we are now exposed to shows about drama in other people’s lives, Housewives of Orange County on the west coast and Jersey Shore on the east coast.

During the past 30 years, we have seen a change in our culture that has been unbecoming, to say the least.  Our immigration policy has literally transformed our culture, and in all due respect, it has not been for the better.  Why?  It has nothing to do with race, it has to do with cultural differences.

I am of Spanish background, Iberian to be exact.  My family migrated here in the early 60s from Cuba and assimilated to the American culture.  That is to say, my parents and grandparents left their homeland and their culture.  They came here with the understanding that they were going to be Americans.  They didn’t come here in search of welfare benefits, free healthcare and subsidized housing.  They understood America was the land of opportunity and self-reliance, not some welfare state that provides for its citizens, and non-citizens.  No country can survive with that way of governing.

Sure we celebrated our Noche Buena (Dec 24), but we celebrated Christmas Day and New Years as well.  My parents were hard working folks and they loved America.  This slow poisonous fruit we have been eating for the past 30+ years has damaged our nation and our sovereignty tremendously, and guess what folks, that is the point.  So here we are in a post America culture.  Not because they have won, but because we have allowed them to keep pushing the line in the sand.  They are after all the minority, yet we keep turning the other cheek, allowing them to shut us down.

When did the left and the media and the dems get hungry for politics before Donald Trump.  The only reason that we did not see this level of disrespect for the office of President, during the past 8 years is because the media was on board with Obama’s plan to “fundamentally transform the United States of America”  I have to say, they almost succeeded.  Leftists do not stand on principle, because they have none.  The academic left and the media miss the weak and feckless republican party under the leadership of their bedfellows, John Boehner, Eric Cantor and the current cowards Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell.  These are not statesmen, they are the bottom of the swamp.  They do nothing because they stand for nothing, they are as bad as the democrats or worse.

So how do we build a bridge that reconnects us as Americans.  First, we stop attacking this President.  Think about all of the hatred and garbage being cast towards the man that we elected.  Why?  Over some false narrative about Russia and collusion, and prostitutes, and urine and on and on.  Meanwhile, Trump keeps fighting and punching up.  He doesn’t punch down, he punches up and we should be doing the same.

I am happy to help build a bridge that unites us as Americans.  But I will not be silenced.  You disrespect me, don’t expect me to turn the other cheek.  You are gonna get back exactly what you throw my way.  That is the American way.  It has been since the founding of the Nation and it was only 30 or so years ago that Americans decided that the left was going to take over the conversation and we were gonna sit down and shut up.  No.

Leftist are the most hateful, despicable group of people you will ever meet.  Once they pollute your nation, they devour it.  Just look for yourselves, nations run by leftist/marxist ideologues.  Before we build that bridge, we must throw leftist into the crater they created that divided us.  Until we shut them down, we will never be whole again.  Everything the left represents is unAmerican. Think about it no matter what your politics are, whether you like Trump or not.  If you can look at what is happening today and  be okay with it, you are the problem.

The future of this nation depends on each and every American standing up and saying Enough.  If not for yourselves, do it for your kids and your grandkids.  Because truth be told, we have nowhere to go. Let that sink in.

About Candie Suarez

I have been writing stories and articles for years. I enjoy putting information and research links in most of my articles, except for those written from the heart. Books have been a part of my life since I was a child. I remember as a kid reading the encyclopedia and playing with a dictionary. Word smithing is definitely my thing.


  1. Well said Candie, wellsaid

  2. I couldn’t agree with you more!

  3. Please read a book written by Sinclair Lewis ,”it can’t happen here ,of course you are going well it’s only a novel , I am 83 and woman ,my ancestors came here before the revolutionary war , no big deal , but if they would tried now ,they would illegal immigrants. America is a 2 party system ,or better yet we have more than 2 . I do not want to receive any more from you . But the “Donald “will be not be satisfied until he is crowned .

    • First, if your ancestors came now they would not be illegal. There is a port of entry in the U.S. where you can become “legal”, you don’t sneak into the U.S. As for your comment that the “Donald” will not be satisfied until he is crowned is B.S. and only shows disrespect and contempt from you for our President. I did not care for President Obama and his policies but I would never have said that.

  4. I agree with you 100%. We need to get back to where we put God first in our country. When we do that things will get better. I enjoyed what you wrote.

    Dear Ms. Suarez

    You have given the best description of my family’s experience I have ever read. The only difference is my parents were born in the USA shortly after my grandparents “got off the boat” in Newark, NJ in the first decade of the 20th century. I would like to be on your mailing list. Let me know if there is any charge and where to send payment.

  6. Dear Madison,

    Being a new Mom is never easy because there is so much
    uncertainty and it certainly can be tiring and overwhelming all in one. We try to do our best at raising
    our babies with our good instincts leading the way.
    However; babies do command a great deal of attention;
    but there are ways to de stress from taking care of them.

    First off, you need to get a change of environment being
    inside with the baby a good part of the day. It would be
    not only good for you but the baby as well to go out and
    go to a park, take a stroll, or do something worthwhile
    even for an hour or two. I realized this later on with baby
    number two how important it was for my well being.

    Also, by going out you get interaction with others depending upon where you decide to go. It definitely will
    help but it takes a little bit of planning with all that’s
    needed for baby when heading out the door.

    Dear Ms. Suarez:

    Your’s is one of the best (if not the best) article I’ve ever read on the subject of immigration and assimilation. My grandparents (both sides) immigrated from Italy in the first decade of the 20th Century. My parents were born shortly thereafter. I and my sister and cousins were raised as Americans in and just outside of Newark, New Jersey. Your description of our experience is accurate and perfect. Thanks for telling our side of the story.

  8. I am also the daughter of an immigrant who came into the US legally. In fact, my parents spent the
    first year of their marriage living in Nuevo Laredo because my dad didn’t have the necessary papers to enter. With the help of then state Senator Lloyd Bentson they were finally able to come in (my mom was a citizen). Later my dad’s brother and one of his sisters immigrated to the US, again legally. But this entire issue isn’t about “helping the poor”, it’s about votes. I truly don’t understand the Democratic Party’s desire to destroy the US.

  9. Lady, you are crazy. You think it’s okay to accept a president that constantly lies, had sex with prostitutes while he is married, Not a Christian to be respected? What is wrong with you? You disrespected President Obama for 8 years because he wanted to make this country a better place for everybody, not just the the rich or the whites. You wouldn’t know what it’s like because you’re of Cuban descent. You come to this country and everything gets handed to you on a Silver Platter, but somebody like me coming from Haiti (The legal way) has to keep fighting to be respected. You make me sick. You’re giving this President a pass no matter what he does, how he talks and treat people who disagree with him. You call yourselves “The Moral Party”? you don’t giver a damn about morals. Give me a f—–ing break. There is nothing moral about this idiot and yet you seem to be ok with that. The person who is really changing this country for the worst is this President, not Obama. Obama wanted to make it a country where people can live their lives and be happy, regardless of where they’re from, what religion they are or who they love. The bible says not to judge. If someone is an homosexual, it’s not our place to judge. Let them live their lives as a Human Being.

    • You want to quote the bible, quote this Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13. That should put your comment about homosexuality in perspective. If you are an immigrant, you should show some respect. And for your information, my family was handed nothing when they came to America (legally) except for job opportunities which they took. Its not your place to judge. Your words. Live by them.

  10. Candie. I read three of your articles and am thinking about many points you discussed. I would just like to say the I believe a main difference between left and right is summed up in the first sentence of this article. We on the left would probably say, “the average person in every country and culture just wants to live their life in peace.”

  11. Wow! Great article. Blunt and to the point.

  12. Way to to go Candi!
    Wish I could express my identical feelings as well as you.

    Keep up the good work.

  13. You are right spot on. Keep up the good work.

  14. Very interesting post. Back in the early 60’s the thoughts and actions started to change and it wasn’t enough to worry about I thought. I had just graduated, went to Business School, got a job, met the man of my dreams and got married all in 2 years. The Democrats and the Unions with the Auto Companies were the biggest job market and my husband was a staunch member.
    The unions fought for the workers and everything seemed fine. Until the riots in Detroit in 1967. That was a wake up call and things have progressively gotten to be a world I don’t recall having voted into power. It took over slowly and didn’t talk much about the changes we had right then and what was planned for the future.
    The thing I remember most is the power of the Unions and the blind faith auto workers grew to count on in the days of layoffs, plants closings and unemployment.
    I have come to realize now that the NWO was flexing its muscles and getting its plans into motion for the takeover. Changes have been happening since 1970 and I did not pay attention to the world around me. We had good jobs, had 2 children and everything was good. After the year 2000, things began changing for the worst in housing, politics, public education going down hill, and then Islam came to the forefront. I really hadn’t thought much about them but the airplanes bombing on 9/11 was the shocker. Nothing has been the same since then and our government changed with Carter, Bush, Clinton, Bush and then the devil incarnate in Obama.
    I didn’t vote for him and was concerned because his words “hope and change” weren’t explained to the point that we knew what to expect. His silver tongue got everybody anxious for a black man to be elected. Now we know what his plans were and they aren’t good.

  15. Great article I couldn’t agree more my wife is an immigrant from Colombia as well As a lot of her family they know what it meant to come here and become Americans but my wife’s relatives born here and college educated are all leftists idiots and they have poisoned their close relatives but not my wonderful wife we are staunch supporters of President Trump and the constitution and we fight to make our voices heard over leftist hate everyday thanks again for the great articles and the insightful messages

  16. My husband and I are in total agreement with this article. We must respect and honor our President. We will stand for truth, and we do agree that the majority of the news that has come from the media are lies. We will stand for what is truly American, our old values…and not this unbecoming, disgusting, culture. We stand by the Bible, God’s roadmap, and we will not succumb to the popular “Hollywood” culture that tries to pervert our children and our society as a whole.
