American politics is no longer about Democrats or Republicans…
It’s not a fight between the Liberal Left and the Christian Right …
It is about WHAT America is.
It’s a war of competing ideas and worldviews.
It’s a conflict over beliefs and values, over the ideas that will rule society. It’s about whether certain individuals are above the law or are all Americans equal under the law. It’s about truth… or is truth even important? It’s about the direction we want this country to go in the future. It’s about the world we leave for our children. It’s about what god we acknowledge or whether we acknowledge any god at all. It’s about the same struggle man has gone through since the beginning of time, the struggle between good and evil.
It was perhaps the campaign and presidency of Donald Trump that really brought this conflict into public awareness as socialist democrats refused to accept his victory. His campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again” unhinged the political left and those wishing for the Marxist state promised by Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. They wanted nothing to do with making America great, rather they wanted to continue to tear down our heritage, dismantle the Constitution, and turn this country into a Socialist State.
President Bill Clinton suggested in 1997, “We are redefining in practical terms the immutable ideals that have guided us from the beginning.” What Bill Clinton promoted in 1997, Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama advanced even further. In fact, nearly every President in the past century has chipped away, piece by piece, of the values held by our forefathers and have left us today with something totally warped of all that made America great.
It is a sad commentary on the American electorate that what once would have been corporately rejected is now accepted. An unbelievably large number of Americans campaigned for the avowed Socialist, Bernie Sanders.
Many Americans have apparently learned to tolerate what is evil and have redefined that evil to appear good in order to appease their consciences. It’s what Senator Moynihan called, “defining deviancy down.” When some form of deviant behavior gets out of hand, we simply redefine it as normal and learn to live with it and it becomes the new normal.
Other Americans have either become complacent, skeptical, or are outright ignorant of what is really happening. They simply can’t believe things could possibly be as bad as they are… unless of course they hear about it on the mainstream news.
Most troubling, though, is that many Americans actually agree with what is happening and welcome it.
In the 2008 Presidential election, Americans bought into the Obama message of “hope and change” without ever asking what what that “hope” was or what the “change” might look like. We have since learned the “hope” represented a progressive Socialist nanny state government that placates the population with fine sounding speeches and promises that are never fulfilled. The “change” came in the form of record unemployment, skyrocketing national debt, and a deepening economic disaster that will ultimately destroy the American economy as we know it.
Rejecting a holy God in favor of a more tolerant supreme New Age force, mankind lost all connection to something greater than himself resulting in a form of nihilism that enables him to form a god in his own image. Everything the human heart can imagine and desire becomes the ambition of life regardless of the consequences to themselves or others.
Love is exchanged for lust as traditional families are replaced with multiple domestic partners. Homosexuality becomes the norm resulting in widespread disease, birth defects, and a declining birth rate. As an increasing majority of the population becomes infected with deadly diseases, different targets of sexual gratification will become necessary and man will invent new ways of satisfying that desire. The age of consent will be lowered or outright abolished so that the yet uninfected children will become targets for ravenous sexual predators. A breed of humans might be raised in the laboratory or in another country to stock the harems of those in power and can afford it. The more technologically advanced “techno-elites” will find their release in computerized “virtual” forms of safe-sex.
Crime has become so out of control that local governments are beginning to enforce “crime-free” zones where politically correct communities will be pandered to with their every desire. Outside those PC communities existence will eventually be “every-man-for-himself”. Survival will be uppermost in most people’s minds and they will rely on their baser instincts to overcome the challenges they are faced with. Murder, cheating and stealing will be commonplace as ruthless individuals compete for power and authority in this chaotic and tyrannical world.
Debauchery will spiral out of control as those power hungry people proudly invent new ways to commit wrongdoings to others.
Sound like a bunch of science fiction hooey? Much of what I just described is history. With the exception of some of the technological stuff, much of the description would describe Nazi Germany, 18th century France, or the Roman Empire prior to its fall. Unless humankind stands up in defiance of the growing tyranny, America and the rest of the world is doomed to repeat that history.
Folks, this doesn’t have to be the future of America. There is a better way if only we will choose it. Jesus promised a better life, a life full of abundance and joy. But, we must choose it!
If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. – 2 Chronicles 7:14.
