Concede to What? Concessions are Problematic if Not Based in Truth

Reader comment on item: Trump's Need to Concede

Concessions are Problematic if Not Based in Truth:
Complacent America is Doomed to Abject Servitude:
This observer has lived one of millions of lifetimes in an age where searching for truth was an endeavor that got lost when many intellectuals gave in to philosophical reasoning that seems logical, but if fully pursued to a logical conclusion in modern and contemporary times, were antithetical to true visions of freedom of spiritual things. And as remarked by anti-religious free thinkers, truth was lost to religious reinterpretations of mortality versus immortality and living life as an independent soul versus a spirit devoted to the one true God, the Almighty of Scripture.
Does American politics really depend upon the Hebrew Holy Writ, the Bible(?); read the founding documents. Conceding in defiance to these antithetical issues of truth are in view.
America has been at war with agents of rebellion since the beginning of the republic, among the insults being the use of the term 'democratic;' for the righteous choices made are through representative agents of the people who were told they could trust the representatives through services sworn to under the phrase, 'so help them God.' Who serves the people through the Lord God now?
Very few persons of the former representation are seen, what with allegiances to every other vice known (pride, avarice, hedonistic narcissism and self-indulgence) to mankind now in evidence (corrupted businesses based with treasonous conspiracies and alliances of every sort that hate America): do we concede to them, to what effect?
It is written: be careful what you desire; you may get what you have coveted: is this a true source of contentment in America? Curiously, if things continue in this mode of concession, America is set to find out what the Founders attempted to avert in defying Europe in 1776. President Trump had been involved in retrieving those rights and maintain freedom: should he concede and let all that he worked for die with the social disease of democratic socialism? Remember, once it is lost from here, like the fear of COVID-19, normal will never be the same.
