Death of a Free Republic
Today I write to tell you of the terrible illness that has swept into our great republic. It is a cancer founded in political correctness, sloth, and cowardice, as well as the greed and power mongering of the Washington elite. It is, I am afraid, a fatal cancer of the core values and strengths that brought us to the highest points in the history of human kind.
It started not too very recently, but remained, if not dormant then hidden, eating away at the defensive immunities that our founders had placed in this great society at its conception. Like mother's milk, our founders tried to pass on their understanding and thereby protect us from illnesses and evils by preaching and teaching that ours was to be a Godly country; founded on Christian principles and mores. They fought to make a country that would stand like a shining city on a hill, as President Reagan said, to show all peoples what a free God-fearing country could become. They charged us to hold this great land with their ideals and we have forsaken our sacred duty. We have allowed the failed beliefs of failed nations to creep into our country and take root like a virus. Like a viral infection, this disease will take its course and we have no defense against it. Most people don't even recognize the symptoms of the illness. Those things that dissolve the bone structure of our nation are seen as aid and help in times of struggle.
Let me be more clear in the different aspects of this disease. It started in 1947 with a putrid finding by the Supreme Court on the false idea of the separation of church and state. From this ruling all further break downs in the social mores of our country can be traced. Next was the introduction of socialist policies under the "New Deal". These policies can honestly be argued to have prolonged the Great Depression, instead of, as liberal historians would have us believe, ending it. As evil as it was, WWII was the reason for the end of the Great Depression. Sloth, on the part of conservative people, has caused us to let others make the decisions that effect the course of our lives and those of our future born. Greed makes us ask for hand outs from the government and makes us dependant on that government for our daily bread and shelter from the time we are born to the time we die. Cowardice causes us to shy away from the good fight because we don't want to have our peers look down on us as extremists. Extremism in a just cause is not a vice. It is a responsibility. It is a Duty. Now we allow our children to kill their children so as not to "punish them with a baby" for their mistakes. No longer do we look to ourselves when our lives do not pan out, instead we look to others who we perceive, thanks to our politicians and the media, are holding us down and interfering with our success.
Our founders told us that the policies of socialism are evil. The Federalist papers as well as other period documents and letters by our founders show clearly that the government was never to wield the powers that it now does. In 1773 our fathers stood in protest against unfair taxation and wealth redistribution that was happening in the early colonies. Knowing that they were in open rebellion against, not a peace loving democracy, but a brutal monarchy, they still voiced their anger and refused to fold under the incredible pressures and punishments handed down by the crown. In the end, they revolted and fought for their freedom.
Now, little more than 230 years have passed, and its almost inconceivable that we are the descendants of those great men. Those great souls that must weep if not for the guarantee of freedom from pain and sadness in the here-after. All they fought for is now dying. Our country's only social fighters are those that argue and struggle to roll back our rights and those of the helpless. They would guarantee a woman's right to kill a child up to the day it came out of its own accord. They would deny that life any defense or human label other than fetus. We lose more and more of our humanity and we wonder why our youth kill themselves and each other in our schools.
Our government now has started socializing our private industries in the name of stabilizing the economy. The government CAUSED this crisis. Their corruption and power mongering is what guaranteed that this would happen. They knew it was coming and now they run around telling us that they must act, and it must be NOW! They have increased, in one week, our federal budget by over 20%. This is an increase directly to our national debt. It is a debt our children's children's children will have no hope to pay off. God help us.
But then, why should he? We have abandoned him and his teachings. We have not only said that we don't know him, we say that we aren't interested in knowing him. He will not help us. Not if he was willing for the Jews to suffer outside of their own homeland for 2000 years before restoring them. What chance have we? None. I don't know if the final death will take another 50 years or it may take the 8 years that Obama will rule. Please note the intentional use of rule instead of serve. Either way, the disease, be it a form of cancer or sexually transmitted disease, was self-given and if we survive, the cure will have to be self administered and painful. If not then we go into the long night of our own accord. Just like Rome and Greece before us.
