As I write this post, there is a funeral happening for a Police Officer killed in the line of duty, and tomorrow is the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on 9/11.
Our country is at war, and has been for a very long time. There have been quiet times; times of peace and prosperity, but there have also been times of great tumult and chaos. The escalation of violence, anger, hatred and bitterness within our own borders, against our own people and against the moral foundation of our country has lead us to this 2016 election cycle and the pure madness that it represents. The divide between races, genders and generations has only gotten deeper with the implementation of liberal/socialist policies that take away freedom and impose a form of governmental tyranny through regulation and taxes. Our schools are filled with teachers whose purpose is to indoctrinate students into a form of ignorance that keeps them dependent on the government will. Our small businesses are regulated and taxed to the point of bankruptcy. Our healthcare system is run by bureaucrats, lawyers and accountants instead of doctors and nurses, which leaves the patients paying through the nose for little care and no peace of mind. The natural resources and manufacturing abilities we possess are no longer exploited for the good of our nation; now they are exploited only for the growth of our government. Terrorists and criminals are given a pass while those whose job it is to keep us safe are maligned. And, the moral decay that began more than a century ago has been promoted and pushed into every aspect of our lives, leaving a great number of our population without guidance to lead healthy, productive and prosperous lives. Yes, America is at war! We are at war against the evil entities that would obliterate every last bit of good in life and replace it with the oppression of tyranny.
In the past year, I have found it increasingly difficult to want to write about our political situation, so I have decided to put an end to this blog. I can spend all of my time researching, reading and trying to formulate insights to share here, but what good does it do? Not one bit. I can write all day every day about politics, but not one word will make a difference. One cannot reason with the unreasonable and most of our citizens have taken leave of common sense in order to wallow in bitterness, anger and hatred. Will terrorism or government be America’s final ruin? No! Stubborn, foolish pride will be our final destruction. So, from now on, I will focus my attention on the foundation of our problems; lack of Biblical guidance. My time and effort will be spent writing for Jesus Christ. This blog is done, but The Determined Christian is up and running, so if you want to join me there, please do. I may not be able to reach anybody with political reasoning, but if I can reach just one person with the love of Christ, I will have done my job well. My @voiceofapatriot Twitter account will remain, and there I may share a political opinion once in a while. However, I will be engaging with my followers on my @DeterminedSusan account more often, so if you’re interested you can follow me there.
The road ahead is uncertain, but I am excited about the journey. As when Joshua faced the Children of Israel, I face you. You can choose to follow the anger, hatred and bitterness into the wilderness, but as for me, I choose to follow the Lord my God. Be blessed, Patriots!
What’s done is done. What’s done is forgiven. Time to move on.
If you are interested, you can keep up with me at The Determined Christian.
