AMERICA DESTROYED – By Hate, Fear, and Apathy…

I have lived long enough to see the America I have known and loved literally destroyed and is in the process of being ‘fundamentally transformed’ into a Socialist nation.  I acknowledge that we are not fully there yet, but with the whole of government in the hands of the Leftists, we will be in a very short time.

I predict that, within the next two years, there will be, at a minimum, an attempt to add Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico as the 51st and 52nd States in the Union.  That would mean an immediate increase of 4 Liberal Leftists Democrats in the Senate.  It would also mean the reapportionment of Congressional Seats affording them their allotted number.  That would mean states such as Texas and Florida would lose at least one Congressional seat.  The balance of power would be shifted to the Left possibly irreversibly.

I also predict that there will be an attempt, which will likely become a reality, to increase the number of Supreme Court Justices.  With the Democrats in control of the Senate, the likelihood of any Democrat breaking from the Party Line is remote.  That would mean that those new justices would be political activists calling themselves jurists.  That would shape the agenda for America leftward for the next several decades if not permanently. 

I am stunned that the America I have known and loved has drifted so far Left and appears blinded unable to comprehend the damage and danger coming.  The question that is echoing in my mind is, “What Caused This Condition?”  Although I am incapable of fully expounding on why I do see several things that are key elements that helped bring us to this place.

On January 5th or I should say in the wee hours of January 6th I was awakened to the thought in my mind and words in my spirit that made me weep.  As I awakened from sleep I heard in my heart of hearts, “America has been destroyed by Hate, Fear, and Apathy.”  I sensed that the LORD was speaking to my heart and mind and as I mused on that statement, without the benefit of any news I knew the fate of the Georgia Senate Elections. 

Godlessness and greed have plunged this nation into a deeper state of darkness than I would have believed possible.  Yet, I have been watching it transpire over the past few years so it should not have come as a surprise, yet it has.  I believe that this election was more a referendum on God than Donald Trump, Conservatism, Constitutionalism, Liberalism, or anything else.  That may not resonate with you, but it is what I believe.


If you will give me the liberty, I will take these one at a time, then collectively, and hopefully offer a small ray of hope.  I see those three elements or conditions as incredibly powerful.  The Bible directs us to Love but love is not the norm today.  The Bible leaves no doubt that a person cannot call him or herself a Christian and hate other human beings.  We are told in 1 John 4:20, “If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen.”  There is nothing ambiguous in that statement.  If we love God, we also love others and if we do not love others, we do not love God.

I am stunned at the level of Hate prevalent in America today.  Hate blinds and is the culprit in virtually every discord between people, groups, and ethnicities.  Hate is a learned condition!  There is generational hatred taught in the homes, schools, and even churches.  The reality that there have been abuses of any people by others of a different ideological position or ethnicity is undeniable.  However, that never justifies hate.  It cries for repentance and reform but not hate.

Politicians and the nefarious souls who seek to control and dominate the world have learned that fanning the flames of hatred is a method of winning elections.  I suggest that there would be no ‘racism’ if love had a stronger hold on the heart than hate.  The Democrats, Media, and Activists have spent the past four years engendering a level of hatred for Donald Trump that has blinded millions to truth and reality. 

Hate has created coalitions politically for the express purpose of defeating Donald Trump.  The potential or real dangers presented in allowing those following the toxicity of liberalism and Socialism are unseen because of the blinders of hate.  Unfortunately, for them, those who joined the seekers of American Transformation to defeat Trump will suffer like those of us who supported him.  Most Americans will suffer the same fate and be subjected to the tyrannical agendas being advanced.  We will suffer in more ways than I have time to enumerate but suffer we will.

Fear is another element in the disintegration of our Free Constitutional Republic.  The Fear of which I speak has many elements.  It is a Fear birthed out of the blindness of Hate.  It is Fear that has believed the lie that Trump and Conservatives are seeking to eradicate them because they are different or disagree.  It is the Left that has sought to punish people for disagreeing, not the Right.  Then there is a Fear that grips the hearts because of an intense desire and the need to be accepted.  Many Fear being labeled a racist or some other derogatory designation.  That Fear blinds them to the dangers and forces otherwise rational people to comply fearing that if they do not, they will die.

Hate and Fear are incredibly powerful elements that imprison a person and doom them to a life of defeat, dissatisfaction, disappointment, and despair.  The prison of Hate and Fear prevents a person from attaining the stated objective of our Founding Fathers, Life, Liberty, and Happiness.  Hate is reactive and seeks to crush those disagreeing or look different.  Fear keeps everyone and everything at arm’s length and makes trust and cooperation a virtual impossibility. 

The third element is Apathy.  In some ways, this is the most destructive of all.  When I speak of Apathy in America, I speak of it from several fronts.  One is a mental attitude that helped produce the condition existing today politically.  Many, for decades, adopted the attitude of “Let the politicians handle the politics.”  They have but have not handled the political in the interest of We the People but the interest of Partisan Ideological and Personal Agenda.  We have, are, and will pay the terrible price for that failure.

Another aspect is Apathy on the part of the Church.  I blame much of the condition in America on the Clergy.  Preachers, Pastors, Teachers it was and is our responsibility to be ‘Watchmen on the Walls’ and sound the alarm when danger comes.  It is our responsibility and assignment from the Father to teach and train people in righteousness and God’s Law.  By Law, I mean His Word of God, not some list of rules and regulations but the Heart of God.  Jesus taught in John 15 that we are to abide in Him and His word in us.  We are told in Proverbs that as parents and shepherds we are to train the young in the right way. 

Apathy toward the politician has allowed the enemy to blind minds in the church and opened the door for evil to advance.  Any preacher that supports Abortion, speaks of hatred for people of different skin pigmentation, or advances causes that are in direct conflict with God’s Word is not a true shepherd.  Any preacher that refuses to address the wrongs in society and politics breeds Apathy and creates a slumber in the Church that leads to inactivity and opens the door for evil to advance.

I cannot adequately address any of the three, Hate, Fear, or Apathy in a short article but I pray that you will ask the Father to forgive you and me if we embrace Hate for any kind people.  You can genuinely dislike, disagree, and detest what they do but you must learn to Love as God Loves and resist the temptation to Hate.  If you are filled with fear and that fear causes you to distrust, embrace hate and block your openness and willingness to view reality, pray for forgiveness and deliverance.  If you are apathetic I remind you of the Words of Jesus to the Church at Laodicea, “…you are neither cold nor hot… because you are lukewarm and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.”

My prayer is, “Lord, help me to Love, not Hate.  Help me to be Courageous, not Fearful.  Help me to be Hot and Invested in Life not Apathetic or Lukewarm.  Help me to seek You first before and above everything.  Help me to forgive everyone and forgive me of everything.  Make me a vessel you can use and use me to manifest You to those around me.”  We can save America but only with repentance and prayer!

God bless you and God bless America.


We have come to a place and should have been there all along where we must reject fear and become fearless!  We must reject panic and paranoia and be filled with faith and courage!  This is not time to be a ‘silent support’ of Liberty and Freedom.  This is a time to be ‘bold as lions’ and ‘fearless in the pursuit of Truth, Liberty, and Freedom.’  That will mean you put yourself out there and become a target for the HATERS of today.  You will become the target for the PC Police and called every vile name imaginable, but you must not HIDE!

I have reached the place that I no longer give much consideration to what people think of me.  I don’t want to be offensive, abusive, or abrasive, but I love God and America too much to let the opinion of men dampen my willingness to declare the truth and give the needed warnings.  I would love to spend all my time promoting the Gospel of the Kingdom and leave politics to the politicians but doing the latter is what produced the mess we are in.  Politicians have corrupted politics and systematically eroded our founding principles and the ability to remain the Free Constitutional Republic. 

The more I talk to people, even in my part of Texas where conservatism is high and support for Trump strong, I find many who are fearful of expressing their views politically.  They are concerned for the safety of their family, the security of their jobs, and seek to avoid the incessant attacks launched at everyone who speaks positively for this administration.  In short, they want ease and because of the politically correct mindset of many today, they want to remain anonymous.  It is like being a Secret Service Christian, which I believe is an impossible position to defend.

Jesus said, in Matthew and Luke that if we are ashamed of Him and His words, He would be ashamed of us before the Father.  I never want that condition to be the definition of my relationship with God.  I am confident there were millions of silent supporters who voted for Trump in 2016 and pushed him over the top in victory.  I appreciate the support and help but I believe we are in a time when we need more and more Americans to be bold in their declaration of support for America.  We endured 8 years of anti-American sentiment and Biden was a part of the consortium.  He is willing to consort with whoever will help him gain power.  That is not good for America.

The Cato Institute conducted a poll of 2,000 Americans in a national survey and discovered that 62% of Americans say that the political climate of today prevents them from saying what they believe.  Many of them were fearful of being offensive and some were fearful of harm.  That is tragic!  We are supposed to be a republic that embraces Freedom of Speech which includes Freedom of Thought and Expression.  In 2017 that percentage was 58% and indicates that we are becoming more and more volatile politically in America.  That is not good for America!

It seems that the only people who feel completely at liberty to express their views appear to be the staunch Ultra Left-Wing Liberals.  They don’t care if anyone is offended but no none dare offend them.  It was interesting that the survey indicated that 65% of Latin Americans, 65% of Asian Americans, 64% of white Americans, 49% of Blacks said they felt uneasy sharing their political views.  Men recorded 65% self-censorship and 59% of women felt unable to voice their true views. 

Over a third of those polled feared their jobs or careers being negatively impacted if they shared their support of conservatism or the president.  Over 60% of Republicans and 49% of Independents with post-graduate degrees feared being penalized for their conservative views.  The more educated a person is the more they tend to worry about the political ramifications for going against the grain of political correctness.

Those views are not unfounded because the Liberal Left has voiced a desire to purge the ranks of all corporations, etc. of any ideological view that is contrary to the mantra and rhetoric of the Left.  It is reported that 50% of Progressives believe that if a person supports, votes for, or donates to Trump they should be fired.  Sadly, there are apparently about 22% of those on the Conservative side that believe any Biden supporter should be fired.  We are reaching a very ugly place in America and a condition is being given life that is making our reconciliation and restoration more and more difficult.

The ‘Cancel Culture’ has been seen before, just not as prolific or as violent and vehement as today.  In 1940, Albert Einstein in his essay “On Freedom” argued that scientific progress depended upon open discourse.  He said, “laws alone cannot secure freedom of expression; in order that every man present his views without penalty there must be a spirit of tolerance.”  Mr. Einstein, that ship has sailed, and America is headed for the rocks of destruction with the politically correct insanity pervasive in today’s America. 

In the 1970s there was a survey called “General Social Survey” and it reported that 60% of Americans supported firing a college professor who was a communist.  I doubt that percentage is anywhere near that today.  The report was that 52% supported firing an “anti-religionist” professor, and 48% thought a gay professor should be prevented from teaching.  Those views were almost equally shared by Democrats and Republicans.  Today, you are far more likely to be fired if you are not a supporter of the communist ideology, anti-religion, and openly gay or supportive of that lifestyle. 

Bigotry is reprehensible.  The desire to silence anyone who disagrees with the liberal leftist views and is unsupportive of the Cancel Culture is driven by hate not tolerance or desire for equality or equal treatment.  It is not justice but control that is desired.  The PC Police and Cancel Culture of today, largely embodied in the Democratic Party desire to signal the acceptable speech or thought.  Disagree and you pay the price in your career and possibly your physical person.  It is stifling and contrary to the ideal expressed and embodied in the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights.  It is anathema to the Bible as well.

If we are not allowed to have open back and forth discussions, the misunderstanding and stereotyping will become permanent.  We may change our views but because we are not heard or are fearful of expressing our views, we remain squarely embedded in the stereotype imposed on us.  I reject that!  I have changed my views on many things in my 73 years on the planet. 

However, my views of God and the Bible in the core foundational principles remain the same.  I believe God is the Creator of All Things.  I believe that All people are created in His image and therefore there is only one race, the Human Race.  I believe that Life is precious to God.  I believe that He gives us Inalienable Rights that no man or government has the right or authority to infringe. 

I refuse to be fearful of expressing my views because I love God, my family, God, and Freedom too much.  I believe that I have been charged by God to ‘sound the alarm’ in the areas I see danger.  I would feel that I had sinned against God were I to become silent and go into hiding.  I am unashamed of my faith and unashamed of my views politically.  I do not want to be intolerant of anyone and am willing to defend their right to believe and say what they believe.  However, I also want to be allowed to express my views without penalty.  My views are my views and a right I have as a human being.  Remember that in November when you consider what is at stake!

God bless you and God bless America.
