People, mostly politicians offer promises of hope and visions of a utopian future. False hope mostly, but collectively we Americans are proven slow learners. It’s false hope because it’s always proven fallacious, but usually after Americans bought it hook, line and sinker.
God didn’t allow those atrocities. Just as he did not allow Himself to be removed from our public schools – taken away from our children when they’re most vulnerable. Just as he did not allow us to kill more than 60 million unborn children. People who did not know God are responsible for these acts.
When young people do not know their history or the origins of their country they are easily influenced. They learn from biased texts and too often from biased ideologues impersonating teachers. On the back of not knowing our true history in the context of it’s time, they are susceptible to ideas of Socialism, Communism, Atheism, and eliminating the Electoral College.
I am neither theologian nor Biblical scholar. I routinely read the Holy Bible. Not near as often as I should, but I read. It is fascinating to me when an ancient message resonates with me and applies to today’s much broader, much more divided, much more dangerous world.
As long as we have career politicians not term limited getting wealthy via the political industry they’ve built, America will not get well. The greatest wealth will always belong to those with the means to entice politicians into crony capitalism arrangements. That’s who we’ve become.
I’m no political prophet or prognosticator, but it may turn out this way. With establishment Republicrats drop-kicked through the goal post of life and many members of the Democratic party following the progressive, socialist, communist wing we may see the shattering of both parties and something good for the country come of it.
Always in my pocket is Grandpa’s Old Timer pocket knife. It was a gift from my Mother. By any stretch, it’s not an expensive knife. I like to reach into my pocket and wrap my hand around it. There’s comfort in knowing something from the past can ground you in the present with memories of times and people.
Do the reading I suggested at the beginning and you’ll come away understanding the United States of America is just a side story in the long history of the world. Barely a blip on the celestial radar. Biblically, there is no United States of America. You won’t find it in Genesis or the Revelation or on any pages in between.
The real American way is simple. If I own a fast food chain, I stand with the food chain that stands by its beliefs. If I own a bakery, I stand with the baker that holds fast to his beliefs. Otherwise, I open the door to people who may want to eliminate my business because my worldview may be contrary to theirs. Maybe we should boycott the tyrannical fascists.
Finally, there’s politics in the twilight zone. Never matter that we only have 12 years before the world goes up in flames. Put down your coffee because it’s painful when hot coffee spews out of your nose. Joe Handsy Biden assures us that President Trump inherited the great Obama Biden economy. They tell me that old blue-collar Joe knows. And this is why they need to eliminate the Electoral College.
I stand in good company proclaiming that we arrived in this world knowing right from wrong. Like freedom, it was written on our hearts. People argue against that. Especially if they do not accept the natural order or a Supreme moral authority. The moral authority that defines right and wrong.
If you embrace America and it’s founding ideal of individual liberty, I will stand shoulder to shoulder with you and defend the America from all enemies foreign and domestic.
Some of you from my generation, maybe earlier maybe later, remember Paul Harvey. Even during my younger days, I enjoyed his commentaries and his “Rest of the Story” broadcasts. In 1965, he broadcast a rather prophetic warning to Americans.
My bride and I went to a Friday matinee and watched Unplanned. If you have never watched it, before you read farther, please take a few minutes and watch The Silent Scream. The Silent Scream Video was made in 1984.
Do you really think this college admissions scandal is new? A new racket? Just look at some of those we know supposedly educated at highfalutin institutions of higher learning. Our political families? People who would die rather than hob nob with the peasants over at the public school. It’s always been that way. Daddy donates a few million and junior is admitted. Even if junior is dumb as a box of rocks.
