And now I look at modern day America and I find it nearly unbelievable how we have fallen so far so fast. Our relationship as citizens with our government is becoming King George-like, only worse. We have a central government that is power crazy, intent on knowing everything we think and do and wanting to dictate our every action, and so many are just going quietly along, losing the very rights that so many fought and died for with nary a thought.
Several good examples of how of how low we've come is in today's political news. New York City is on the verge of electing a mayor who is openly a Marxist, wanting to turn a city that was cleaned up and made bright again by Rudy Giuliani into another cesspool like it was under David Dinkins. Virginia, my home state, the Old Dominion, is ready to elect a man with no guiding moral principles and who believes in everything "big government" over a man who was the first out of the blocks to openly challenge and fight the abomination we know as Obamacare. Terry McAuliffe has run a campaign full of lies, paid for by left wing radicals from around the country, not from Virgina. If elected, will merely be a placeholder for the Chicago Way who will work to destroy the House of Jefferson.
But even of more significance is the lack of strength and will of those in Washington who are supposed to be known as the loyal opposition. The key term here is opposition, not loyal. Under Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, and despite many elected members with views to the contrary, these "leaders" are doing everything they can to undercut conservatism and maintain a corrupt status quo that looks after itself instead of the people who elected them in the first place. They have no backbone, they have no guiding value structure other than politics, and they are miserable failures in what they do.
Why do I say this? Well, although there are many other reasons, just look at the big one: Obamacare. Americans by the millions are hurting today and many others are fearful of what is coming. Why? Because they are staring at a mandated health system which they can't afford, which will probably not have many doctors left to service, and which will ultimately bankrupt them. And what do the Republican "leaders" do? In one word they do nothing. They just sit back and wait for the system to implode, to destroy itself.
This might be good politics tactically but it is terrible leadership. Republicans in power, personally exempted from the hell that is Obamacare, will just sit by and watch citizens suffer, die and go broke while their little game in Washington continues on.
And on top of this they will bend every rule and pull every trick to try to "slip" an immigration law into place that will open the gates to a lifetime of further destruction of America. They will put the lawless illegals ahead of American citizens at the beck and call of the Chamber of Commerce, a once proud organization that now will sacrifice the country for personal riches.
Folks, there are only two words for this and they were spoken by none other than Billy Graham in his final presentation to America: Greed and Corruption. Greed and corruption from top to bottom in the national political establishment is rapidly killing America and destroying her very soul.
Will we continue to sit silently by and watch the nation you love crumble, or will we get involved and work hard to make major changes in the big election cycle next year? I will tell you this, if we don't do something in those elections, America is dead. So let's get her off the socialist breathing machine and get her breathing the breath of freedom again. 2014 is the first big step: Are we up to it?
God bless you all. Let's do this together.
