What's That Rumbling Noise?

I think it's about 1.5 million American patriots rolling over in their graves.

Why have we reached such a state of depravity that we are forced to choose between a Fascist and a Socialist for president? Why must we have a government made up of professional politicians and career-long criminals? Why has my country and its people crawled, walked, skipped and jumped down the path of moral depravity?

How is it that we have broken every rule and principle of Freedom, proudly defending every institution of modern slavery?

I don't even know what America used to look like; I'm too young to even know what it was like to live in a truly free society.

"'Republic': I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober how ever they choose. Some words give you a feeling; 'Republic' is one of those words that makes me tight in the throat."... Some words can give you a feeling that make your heart warm; 'Republic' is one of those words."
~ John Wayne, in "The Alamo"

Too few people even know what "Republic" means. Too often, governments opposed to the idea of a free Republic use the word to describe their own country. (People's Republic of China, for one.)

What we have is a Federalized Constitutional Republic, but most Americans falsely call it a "Democracy". Only our elections are democratic.

A Democracy is rule by the people, but a Constitutional Republic is rule by law through representatives.

But, nobody cares. Nobody wants to care, anymore. There would be a national outcry if the voting on "American Idol" was rigged, but not if our own national elections were.

Those who realize the truth may only turn to God for the answer; others will turn to destruction.

Son, I'm sorry you haven't the experiences your dad and I enjoyed and then took for granted, growing up in the former U.S.A.

Yet, you're blessed to deal with no misplaced loyalty, no foolish pride, no confusion or question over Whose kingdom in which you are a citizen, to Whom your allegiance must belong, from Whom your commission is issued, or which (perfect) Ruler will eternally save and provide for you to the uttermost.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1

Psalm 2

Great Post!

And that is one of my favorite quotes from the Alamo.

Let us pray that God will continue to raise up a Godly remnant for His glory, and to retake the culture for Christ.

Thank you, it's one of my favorite quotes... at least about politics!

Yes, He is our only hope for America.
