THESE ARE THE TIMES THAT TRY MENS SOULS...Thomas Payne
I have had to think hard how I would address the results of the National Elections. I always enjoy tweaking the liberal mindset and I am sure there is much rejoicing there now. Funny though I still don't feel that changing a country that has been the beacon of hope worldwide since 1776 is something to rejoice about.
Since the Communist Manifesto was published in the 19teens the formula for the downfall of America has always been known. Prior to World War 2 we were so busy trying to survive a drought, depression, prohibition, and corruption. We survived a coupe plot against FDR, and the ideas of Euthanasia were spreading from the US to Germany.
For all the faults of the US there was still the overriding pride in freedom, faith, and being the refuge of the world. When Senator Joe McCarthy was waving the files of communist names and using the cold war to stay in the spotlight, we somehow became inoculated about those who seek to destroy what we achieved in real life.
We never had a news media that became an arm of government controlled by one party. We never had a president with admitted socialists and communists as cabinet members. Never have we had a position that was so attacked by one side and ignored by another. Never have we had so little known about a man who held the highest office in the land. We have never been declared as no longer a Christian nation. We have never had disagreement that all voters should be legal and our boarders should be secure. We have never had a federal government that would file suit against a state for insisting on secure borders.
We have never had a National Park put off limits to citizens because it is so dangerous and that law enforcement has to travel in groups and armed for battle on sovereign soil. Never have we had an embassy not be considered American soil as the rest of the world does. We have never fired a general for wanting to send aid to officials and citizens under fire, and then retire him.
Never before have we had so many who insist that they be given so much for doing nothing. We have never had an industry injured and so many jobs lost because a president wanted to discredit business for using private and corporate aircraft in the course of their business.
Does changing the way that numbers are counted make any fewer people unemployed? We have soup lines it just is in better facilities now. Is giving cell phones away really elevating people up or just buying them off?
Are we having hard times? We have not seen hard times yet. A man I once worked for was in the Army in Germany in the 1950's. An old German told him many times that the US would see the days like Germany after World War One when money was useless. Go look at the pictures of a wheel barrel of cash needed to buy a loaf of bread.
No, hard times are ahead. Every economist, historian, and free thinker can look back to see the pattern that we are doomed to repeat. An accountant friend told me that within 18 months this country will see things happen that will shake the very foundation of the country.
I want to be cheery and do believe that adversity makes a better person, nation, of us. At what time will the folly of the 'me' generation, realize that those who have given everything may have been wasted on those who do not deserve it? Regardless, the next generations will be paying for it.
The Chosen people rebelled time after time and went their own way and eventually were sold into slavery or concurred. Always generations of innocents paid for the sins of the people who lost sight of the promise.
Enjoy your victory now before the bill comes. We have sold ourselves to the Pharaoh. What will it take to return to the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave?
