Currently, in a (formerly) great country near you

Someone asked me what my thoughts were on the current debacle that is our political system. After some thought, I answered thusly:

Most of the Democrats see it as "Rallying Behind our Great Leader," and are so caught up in the fervor of Political Correctness resulting from electing a black man (ANY black man) that they are blind to what's really going on. BHO is so caught up in himself, and his vision for America that he thinks he is invincible, and can force his agenda (he thinks it's his agenda) on a public that has been apathetic enough to allow it. Have you read any of his books, or looked into the backgrounds of the people he's been surrounded with all his life? I sincerely believe he is merely a tool, created and prepared by the far left -- Soros and his ilk -- who are the ones driving this wagon load of loony toons. It is they who are forcing this "Progressive" agenda onto the stage. They deny the authority of God Himself, insisting that MAN is indeed the captain of his soul. Their agenda takes literally the last stanza of Henley's great lie, "Invictus" --

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

They have no fear of standing before a Holy God at the judgment, thinking that even if they do, they will be able to stand before Him with heads held high, look Him in the eye, and tell Him that He is irrelevant. And they insist they will lead us into the same doom.

The Republicans have enjoyed the "good life" for so long that they've become apathetic as well, and have forgotten any lessons we've (supposedly) learned over the past 200 years or so. They profess to fear the wrath of God, but most of them are too devoid of character to stand for what is right, and they choose to simply "enjoy" the fruits of their (and everyone else's) labor now.

The "far right loons" as they're called may well be the only really sane and serious voices remaining in this country, insofar as they are very vocally crying out Jeremiads against the debauchery we call politics.

They call for return to the principles on which we were founded. They remind us of the reasons our ancestors came here in the first place. They place the awareness of millions of aborted babies into the forefront of our consciences. They demand that our elected representatives not abrogate the rights acknowledged in our founding documents. And they remind us that we are still, indeed, creations of an Almighty and Just God, who has promised to bless us if we will return to Him.

Meanwhile, most of the rest of us have become de-sensitized by the abundance we have become "entitled to," and which we have abused and misused, to the point where we only cry out when stung directly, and move just enough to ease our own discomfort. Well, the whole hornet's nest had to fall on us at some point, and I think it's now.

That the "far-right loons" must resort to spectacular measures to warn us says much against our current condition. But then again, Noah simply built an ark, and no one paid attention to him.


  1. As the left continues to force an unwilling nation in the direction of tyranny, the number of "far-right loons" continues to grow and soon there will be enough to eject those destroyers of freedom...hopefully with a box full of ballots instead of a box full of bullets.

  2. Dunno what's going on -- Gary from Sandpoints commented, and I told it to publsh. THis thing showed 1 comment, but there's nothing there. Can you post again, Gary? I'll try to find out what happened.

  3. Gotta learn patience, ft !!!
