America Today and Tomorrow

American FlagBack in 1776 our forefathers signed the Declaration of Independence and General George Washington’s army fought the British for that independence.

America since that time has been a strong nation and has been a respected leader of the world.  Things have changed drastically however in the past decade!  No longer are we respected.  No longer do we have civil rights.  No longer do we hold the Bible as our guide.  No longer is our Country “One Nation under God.”

Today our great nation is divided.  Things are so messed up that our citizens are confused as to what is truthful and lawful.  Today almost anything we say may be politically incorrect.  We have forgotten the definition of right and wrong.

Students in school today are being taught totally different than the days of yesteryear.  Students are being told that they can’t were a t-shirt with an American flag.  Citizens are being told to take down their American flags. America is being told what to eat, and we are now even confused about sexual identity.  A third bathroom, really?  The list of absurdities goes on and on!  Do we really want to be a nation on food stamps?

Terribly bad things have gradually crept up on us and now our country needs help!  Where have we gone wrong?  What do you think has happened?

Recently the silent majority of America elected Donald J. Trump as our next President.  It was the greatest political upset in our history!  It was a major upset because most citizens didn’t like the path that we were on.

Now we as a Nation, must settle down and chill out.  Have we forgotten about love and respect?  Wouldn’t we be better off if we just turned off the news and Facebook for a while?  The media feeds on negativism! The media loves riots and protests because it creates something for them to talk about.  If the TV cameras would go home during all this unrest, so would the people participating in the ugliness!  The perpetrators are just looking for their 15 minutes of fame!  This bitterness just creates more chaos!

It’s really pretty uncomplicated.  One person led our Country for the past eight years.  Now another person will lead our Country for at least the next four years.  Let’s see how this plays out and then make a decision and decide which was best for all of us.

We shouldn’t be a Nation of hatred, but we have let loathing take over!  We have created monsters who want to kill police officers and make headlines.  You and I must speak up.  We must persuade our sphere of influence to have hope for change, and it’s not the “Hope and Change” that we were promised in previous elections!

There is a Congressman from South Carolina, who I very much admire because he speaks the truth and is fighting for the restoration of a tamed Nation.  His name is Trey Gowdy and I plead with you to watch a condensed version of a speech that he gave recently to a Christian College.  This is not a political speech, it’s a conversation about common sense and is directed to our future leaders.  Watch it and see if it doesn't make sense to you.

Let’s not be satisfied by the status quo, we are better than this!  We are good people who want to do good and live happy lives.  We want to set an example of good, not evil.  We want freedom and a promising future for our children and grandchildren.  Whether you go to church or not, you must believe in something greater than yourself.  That something greater is God, the creator of the universe.  Ask God right now for help in restoring America to the “Land of the Free, and the Home of the Brave!”
