I readily acknowledge that his policies ‘are a problem’ and ‘causing’ extensive harm to our Republic and Constitutional government. That, to me, goes without saying but has to be said because millions still disregard the facts and are unwilling to face reality leveling charges of ‘racism’ against anyone who opposes anything he does. That charge is preposterous but will not die anytime soon for it has proven to be an effective tool in either intimidating or deceiving voters and swaying public opinion.
The conditions that allowed someone like Barack Obama to become president have been developing for a very long time. Someone with his ideology would never have been elected in the first 150 years of our nation and not because he is half-black but because he is Anti-American and the love for country would have rejected him soundly. However, with groups like the Fabian Socialist and other Anti-Capitalism, Anti-American and Pro-Socialist groups for the past 100+ years we have seen the slow erosion of the moral fiber of our nation and world to the place that Barack Obama could occupy the Oval Office and have the title of President of the United States of America.
We have slowly evicted God or the mention of God from public institutions claiming ‘Separation of Church and State’ as our mandate. That poses a problem for me as I examine history and should for you as well. Was it the objective of our founders to eliminate God or the mention of God in public institutions and government? If so, why did they adopt prayer as a key part of their activities in the process of writing the constitution? Why did they find it acceptable to open Congressional sessions with prayer? Why did they deem it appropriate to have the President take his oath with his hand on a Bible? Why did they deem it proper and right to have the Bible taught in the public schools?
I think we would do well to consider the words and actions of our founders in determining their intent. The first and governing maxim in the interpretation of a statute is to discover the meaning of those who made it. — James Wilson, in Of the Study of Law in the United States. If they did not consider it abominable for the Bible, prayer and religious instruction in schools and beyond why do we determine they were obsessed with evicting God and the Bible from public life? It is because the diligence of the atheist, socialist, and others who want to ‘fundamentally transform’ America have tirelessly fought to accomplish this and we believers have too long remained passive buying their idea taking a few words from our founders out of context and applying them to this issue. The founders wanted to prevent the government from establishing a national religion not prevent religion from influencing the lives and thereby influencing government.
OUR SLOW STEADY DECLENSION:
- Development of an Entitlement Society.
- Eroding of the Traditional Marriage and Family Values.
- Providing or allowing Abortion on Demand.
- Apathy of the citizenry.
- Allowing the PC Police to intimidate and control.
- Evicting God from public institutions and events.
These are just a snippet of what is happening on a much larger scale in our society and government. In George Washington’s First Inauguration in 1789 we find in his address these words: “I dwell on this prospect with every satisfaction which an ardent love for my Country can inspire: since there is no truth more thoroughly established, than that there exists in the economy and course of nature, an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness, between duty and advantage, between the genuine maxims of an honest and magnanimous policy, and the solid rewards of public prosperity and felicity: Since we ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven, can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained: And since the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the Republican model of Government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally staked, on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.” – – George Washington 1789 at the 1st Inauguration.
I suggest that our failure to regard ‘eternal rules of order and right’ ordained by God Himself has allowed us to descend into the abyss of moral decadence, reject moral absolutes, embrace the devaluation of life in abortion, and cede to those who want a total rejection of our Judeo-Christian moorings and replace them with moral relativism. Barack Obama is not the ‘cause’ of our problem but his is ‘the result’ of our problem as is his ideology and that of the left politically. I would contend that the propitious smiles of Heaven are no longer on us because of where we have allowed ourselves to be led. Joshua said to the children of Israel as they were preparing to enter the Promised Land, “Choose you this day whom you will serve….As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.” I am unashamedly Christian and treasure the connection to God in our founding as a nation and desire a return to those foundational principles in America. You may disagree and that is your right and privilege. However, if you desire a Free America then please do what you know to do and can to see our Constitutional Republic preserved or restored.
God bless you and God bless America!
