Well, lately I've been hit with several thought streams that have been coming from different directions, but have some very disturbing things in common. I'm going to try to sort through some of them and hopefully get to some factual conclusions. I'm not at all sure of where the conclusions will run as I'm still trying to work some of it out in my head. Some of this will undoubtedly get bad reviews. Good as long as the arguments are coherent and not hate-filled tripe.
Also, understand that I am of two completely different minds about these topics. On one hand I am a patriot and warrior for my convictions. On the other I'm a Christian and self-educated prophecy scholar(Judeo-Christian philosophy only. All others need not apply). From these two points of view I see two very different outcomes and feel differently about them. I'll tackle the second point of view first as it's probably the easiest and shortest to come to grips with. I will say that a battle rages inside me every day because the things I believe are not always compatible with what I value.
From a Christian perspective, America is a hoar. Pure and simple. She started out in her youth with promise and a bright future, if only the people kept the will to remain true to it's founding. All social injustices that were here before the constitution would have eventually taken care of themselves because in the light of that good document, evil could not prevail. Hypocrisy was not a tolerated social trait back then. At some point, slavery, women's suffrage, and equal rights would have been corrected in due course. However, as this young lady of a country grew she was courted by those with ulterior motives. They did not like the fact that this young country put a light squarely on their inconsistencies and flaws. So they sought to corrupt her and did this by flattery and coercion. They supported men of questionable character, throughout her adolescence and those men turned the face of this country farther and farther from the light of moral and spiritual truth. Now she wears a scarlet letter branded into her forehead and emblazoned on her breast. She stands for nothing and gives only lip service to her fathers. She kills her young in the millions and tells her almighty Father that he has no place in her life. She's lost her way and it is inescapable that scripture NEVER mentions America in it's prophecies for a reason.
My personal belief is that America will not recover. Our most powerful days are behind us because we have turned our eyes from those things that were the foundation stones of this country. We've used moral equivalence to weaken the mortar between the stones of our Union. We've weakened the national will through government handouts and dependency and place our Father on the same shelf as Santa and the tooth fairy. Yes, I do believe in redemption, but I do not hold out hope for it.
Now for my point of view as a patriot. I see attacks on our constitution and our founding fathers' vision for our country in every corner of our society. A free press is necessary to a free society when it is true to it's responsibilities. But our press has become biased AGAINST the constitution and has come to support those things that all of our immigrants came here to escape. Socialism, Marxism, Communism. All different names and faces of the same evils. These evils have allowed most of Europe to be over-run by ethnic groups whose religious beliefs demand that all non-muslims be converted by word or sword or they must be killed. In many areas in Europe the native populace is being outnumbered by Muslims. This is due to the rapid decrease in birth rates throughout Europe. The important thing to acknowledge is that the decrease in birth rates correlates directly to the decrease in the devout christian membership. Find the country that has turned the farthest from God and you'll find the lowest birth rate. Muslims on the other hand, are quite devout and breed like rats.
Open borders in the European Union have destroyed whatever chance that those countries might have had to salvage some portion of their sovereignty. They are being flooded with immigrants from the middle east and are beyond any hope of regaining their own lands. The Press and liberals in our government, in open accord with groups like moveon.org and the N.O.W. as well as other groups that have been attacking first one then another of our foundations as bigoted and racist, are pushing for our country to open up and join the "Global Community". It makes my hackles rise. So far we've kept it from happening by social means alone. But I think that our enemies have had a longer range vision than we conservatives have.
OK, let's look at recent history. In 2005 G.W. Bush signed the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America. This agreement is argued to be the precursor to the North American Union. This could never come about if America were doing as well as we have been over the last few decades. Now we have had a perfect storm of events happening, some of which is either the product of gross incompetence or by design of our government. All of these crises AND their attempted fixes have only succeeded in further degrading the American dollar and increasing our national debt to a critical level. If allowed to continue the interest on our debt will be so high that it will become unserviceable. We won't even be able to make the minimum payments on the interest alone. When that happens, the dollar will cease to have any value as a currency. In a state of emergency like that, I look for the benevolent governments of Mexico, Canada, and of course the USA to say that in order to put things back into balance and provide for a renewed period of economic growth a new North American Union will have to be formed. Some of this is speculation on my part. Most is not... Lou Dobbs has covered it and so has (I believe) MSNBC. Glenn Beck has been screaming for months on CNN about the possibility.
Every time an election comes up, voter fraud gets worse and worse and more and more slanted to the left. And more and more the governments in those states do not do all that they must to keep it from happening or to minimize the impact upon elections. This current election cycle was the worst I've ever heard of. 10's of thousands of instances of voter regestration fraud in over 13 states. How many state elections are being stolen by groups like ACORN. In the first draft of the 700Billion dollar bailout 20% would go to groups like ACORN. My conspiracy antennae went up again. How can we think that so many individual events could happen in such a short time period without some form of concerted effort to make them happen.
Now for the hard part. Hypothetically speaking, of course: If our government is systematically sabotaging our country and our Constitution, what recourse do we the people have? If corrupt government funded but private organizations taint the elections if not outright stealing them, and sympathetic state governments turn a boldly blind eye to it, removing our voice in government, what is left for us to do? Do we just roll over and take it? Or do we do the unthinkable and take back our government in the same manner that it was taken from the English? Who would be willing to do the unthinkable? If the government came to your house for your weapons, without you committing a crime, would you force them to kill you to take them? If they said you could no longer post blogs of this nature, would you do it, still, if it meant prison? Would you be willing to spill blood on the Capitol steps to take back what is being ripped from your country? If yes, what would the trigger have to be? We all say we love this country, and our freedoms. How much? Could we win? Is that even a relevant question?
Personally, I am not at all sure that we could win such a fight. In fact, only if the military decided that the government was in violation of their oath of service and therefore either stand aside or assist in such an overthrow, would there be a chance of winning. Not to say, of course, that I wouldn't fight, and die, for my freedoms. I would die, but more importantly, if it came to that, I would fight, kill, and live. That would be the hard part. For in the beginning, the founders were called traitors. They were called criminals and had bounties placed upon their heads.
Well, this has been my little slice of insanity tonight. Please give me your honest appraisal of what I have put on here. I could show clips of the newscasts but they are easily found with a google search. Feel free to use the one on this page. Good luck and God bless. Once again I hope I'm wrong, but unfortunately, I've been more accurate than is good for my emotional health.
