Now that the Iowa Caucuses are over with, we can all get on with life, right? Sadly, that is not the case. Our Freedom is on the line and we must stay engaged with the political process in order to maintain that Freedom. A lot is on the line in this election (as in every other election). The problem this time is that citizens have taken leave of their senses and gone bonkers! Our current president and his minions have managed to cause a great divide in our nation by pushing an agenda that sucks the Freedom out of our lives and replaces it with government interference. Our current president and his minions have pushed government-run healthcare on us, which is destroying the economy and putting bureaucracies in charge of our everyday lives. They have melted our (once strong) military into a glob of ineffectual policies that tie the hands of men and women, who, otherwise, are a strong force against our enemies. They have enacted regulation after regulation to tie the hands of American businesses and keep them from flourishing. They have turned our educational system into socialist indoctrination centers. They have pushed deviance and perversion into the American culture and done the best they can to distance Christians from schools, government, the market place and even Churches. But, none of that matters.
The divide between races, genders and generations has become deeper and wider with the vitriol spewed by Republican candidates and their frothing-at -the-mouth followers. Instead of supporting their own candidate of choice, they have taken to insulting and hurling hatred toward other candidates. People with the word Christian in their social media profiles use every form of profanity and vulgar speech against people who disagree with them. Egos, opinions and emotions have clearly taken over and common sense has been eradicated. Cruz supporters, Trump supporters and Rubio supporters are in a battle to see who can be the ugliest. They’ve set themselves up as judge and jury over the process and if you have the audacity to disagree then you must be Satan’s spawn. Rather than use a Spirit of discernment and encouragement, these people fly off the handle at any mention of an opposing candidate and act like a pack of rabid hyenas fighting over a field mouse in a drought stricken land. It is sickening!
Maintaining Freedom and defending the Constitution of the United States of America used to be the focus of the political process. Not anymore. Now, all that matters is whose candidate and supporters can get more time on TV showing how vile and emotionally stunted they really are. Here’s a little truth for my fellow Americans; if your focus in the political process is your own anger and hatred, maybe it is time to take a break, because you are not helping. Maybe it would be a good time for you to read some real Scripture, pray for discernment and get over yourself.
Forgive me, Dear Reader, but I am sick and tired of people pushing the idea that their own agenda is all that matters. My priorities are God, family and country – that is all that matters to me, and that is why I am resolved to stand against the forces of evil that have invaded America – no matter where those evils reside.
May God bless America and her citizens with the ability to maintain our Freedom. Amen.
