“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” ~Matthew 7:15 (NASB)

For those of you who are still interested in what I have to say — Welcome!
It has been a while since I have posted to this blog. I felt I had to take a break from the onslaught of negative information assaulting me through my email inbox and the internet. It took both a physical and spiritual toll on my life.
However, after some serious reflection, I have reconnected myself to God and He has given me renewed strength to return to the fight. And, if you believe as I do, that the politics and pronouncements of the far left, whether you call them Communists, Socialists, Bolsheviks, or Statists, are a huge heap of rotting donkey manure, you know that we are only one small misstep away from a real, hot, deadly war no matter where on the earth you may live.
Human dignity and human liberty are in danger. Anyone with a conscience must fight to preserve both human dignity and liberty, for we cannot have one without the other. The far left seeks to destroy both for one purpose — power. The far left hates anything that they cannot control and they will not stop until the entire human race is subjugated under their control in some kind of Utopian fantasy that does not include liberty or human dignity.
The second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence clearly states the source of our liberties and to whom we all answer — a set of universal truths.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
Powerful words. Written more than 237 years ago, they are as meaningful today as they were on July 4, 1776. Simply put, our rights, our liberty, our lives, all came from one place — GOD. They are His gifts to us to use as we choose and, as the Founders recognized, the government answers to us, to “We, the People.”
It is a system that produced the most free and prosperous nation ever seen. The people answer to God, and the government answers to the people. That is the essence of liberty and liberty spawns human dignity.
However, early in the last century, a new breed arose in the United States and around the world. They called themselves Progressives. A nice, cozy sounding name, but upon close examination, their ideas are far from what most of us would consider progressive.
To take from the producers and give to the lazy is not progressive it is theft. To reduce human life and individuality to involuntary servitude to an all-powerful state is not progressive it is slavery. To give everyone an equal outcome is in reality a scheme to make everyone poor. Governments around the world have become brutal, oppressive caricatures of the fairy tale of Robin Hood stealing from the rich and giving it to the poor.
As Margaret Thatcher once said, “Sooner or later, you run out of other people’s money.”
The world has endured more than a century of the relentless, sinister march of godless, dehumanizing, enslaving ideas and subversion of the so-called progressives. They have been clever and effective.
In the United States, the progressives control the media (newspapers, television, music, and film) and they control the tax-supported, union-mismanaged un-education system as well as the Executive and Judicial branches of the Federal government, and one house of Congress.
It is time for Americans and the world to stand in complete and total opposition to the anti-human, anti-God, anti-Liberty forces of progressivism.
The progressives deny God and want to enslave all who oppose their evil mantra. We must stand and fight. We must win the hearts and minds of the young people and those who are “undecided.” We must expose their true intentions.
We must act now before it is too late, especially in America, for if America falls, the world will slip into an age of darkness from which only the grace of God will save us.
I will close this post by leaving you with the words of Patrick Henry,
“I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging the future but by the past. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth… For my part, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst; and to provide for it. It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace — but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”
