Facing Up To America’s REAL Problem…
“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.” ~ John Adams, Address to the Military, 1798
History has taught us that every Republic ever established has failed. The Greek city states, Rome, England under Cromwell, the French Republic, and the great 20th-century example of the Weimar Republic. Every time a republic has fallen it has resulted in a dictatorship. The Constitutional Republic of the United States has long since morphed into an oligarchy. Congress doesn’t represent We The People any more. Once elected to Congress, most members believe it should be a lifetime job. POTUS has also been allowed to morph into its own imperial presidency. As a for instance, what Emperor lives as good as the current faux fraud president of the United States? Consider that before he was barely ensconced in We The People’s Mansion, Obama the Clown Prince of Fools flew to New York City aboard Air Force One (the big 747) for, of all things, a date night. Bouyed by this example of profligate spending by her husband, Michelle Obama rapidly got into the mood of grabbing her kids, her mother, her friends, her university buddies and anybody else she could muster, and flying off to expensive ski resorts and vacations in Spain, Africa, China, Japan, Hawaii etal on American Air Force planes, staying in ridiculously-expensive and fancy hotels with We The People taxpayers picking up the bill. And did I mention the other day, the communist dinner party with the Prime Minister of Canada where the two teenage girl occupants of the White House were bedecked out each in their own $20,000-dollar body-wraps courtesy of We The People taxpayers? (PS – yes I did, most assuredly)
2004-2008 was something of a watershed-period in America wherein millions of people got fooled. 2012 came along and absolutely blew me away, along with scores of other so-called “in-the-know-political-pundits” when from a seemingly landslide victory in the offing for the Republican side, over 60 million variously-assorted “voters” (many dead ones being amongst them) voted for Obama the Clown Prince of Fools despite abundant evidence that he had no business being in the White House. It was at that point that I knew America’s irreversible slide into irrelevance had begun. Perhaps I’ve always been too much of a student of history, or perhaps it’s due to the fact that I grew up during a period when History was not an elective in school, but an essential study of foundational truth. Same with the Civics Course and study of Bible History.
There were more than a few prescient people – students of History – who pointed out at the end of 1962 that America was already over. Americans in 1962 had allowed a handful of unelected black-robed executioner-lawyers draped in vampire robes euphemistically-described as SCOTUS to toss out America’s Judeo-Christian teachings and morals, to laughably claim that it was somehow “unconstitutional” for schools to use the Bible and prayer in their curricula, or to post the Ten Commandments inside their hallways.
Mind you, every school and college in America had been using the Bible and Biblically-based lessons books prior to this, and it was patently obvious to any sane-thinking person that it was IMPOSSIBLE for such usage to be “unconstitutional”, given that all the men who debated and enacted the Constitution attended schools and colleges which used the Bible, and those same schools had continued doing so from 1791-1962 uninterrupted.
Nonetheless, those cowardly Americans of 1962 allowed the aforementioned unelected black-robed executioner-lawyers draped in vampire robes to strip them of their moral foundations and heritage unchallenged. Within five years the country exploded into full-blown Godless rebellion, leading to the “hippie” generation and Time magazine proclaiming GOD IS DEAD and the Beatles’ bragging that “We’re more popular than Jesus!”
Fast forward to today’s 2016. Barely 50 years later, America is so rapidly in decline that Edward Gibbons probably couldn’t keyboard fast enough to keep up with it. The vast majority of millennial below-30s are admittedly, proudly, Godless, while the same “old white European males” who created both Federalism and the Constitution are well on their way to becoming a racial minority, with American schools and colleges enthusiastically teaching hatred of their skin color, their History, their ideas, and their achievements. Is it any wonder the Bible warns “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” ~ Galatians 6:7
Is Donald Trump the answer? Ted Cruz? The Wicked Witch of the past White House? Bernie the Terrorist Sanders? You sowed it, America, and allowed it to fester. By the end of 1962, you sowed it. And now you are reaping it. No one currently in government wants anything to change, while Mr. Jefferson’s tree of liberty is badly in need of immediate replenishment. Just where are the Patriots when you need them?
Coming up, a must read and by far the best, most honest and articulate essay published on American Thinker in more months than I can remember. Selwyn Duke calmly, soberly, line-by-line points out to all Americans why this is so. His statements cannot be refuted. They can be DENIED, you can stick your fingers in your ears and sing-song, “La la la, I can’t heeeear you!” but your doing so doesn’t change reality one whit. I’m not surprised some, if not most, of the comments in the thread are in obvious denial concerning what Duke so baldly stated. It’s a tough pill to swallow, to recognize that your own country has passed the point of no return. But it is what it is….
It’s easy to get wrapped up in men and moments. In the current election season, for instance, we may see a candidate appearing to embody all our hopes and dreams (or at least many) and come to assign him country-savior status. Even the great Thomas Sowell — a man for whom I have tremendous respect — has called the November choice “the last chance for America.” Yet even if we do choose the “right” president, it will only amount to a stay of execution.
Many people lament that “Obama has destroyed America these last eight years” or, alluding to same, will say “I don’t recognize my country anymore.” This is much like viewing a woman who marries a greasy-haired, dope-smoking, heavily tattooed and pierced, unemployable reprobate and saying that her matrimonial decision destroyed her, when the real problem was that she was the kind of person who could make such a choice in the first place. Do you really think Obama isn’t a symptom at least as much as a cause? Do you think the 2008 A.D. America that elected him would have been recognizable to 1950 Americans?
And even if the next president is an anomalous good result, he won’t even be a pause that refreshes, but will at best slow down the runaway train racing toward the precipice. This is because our main problems aren’t illegal migration, trade deals or health care, as significant as those things are. Our problems are more fundamental.
Do you really want to save America?
Well here’s one Patriot willing to replenish Jefferson’s Tree of Liberty, my Pastor Kendall Bridges from FreedomLife Church in Carrollton, Texas…
