So here we are in 2023 and the sun came up once again: I will tell you that the challenges that lie ahead for our country are many and I’m not sure that the American people are up to the task of cleaning out the bureaucratic swamp that we have been squatting in Washington for decades. We have just gone through one of the most hate-filled years that I can remember in my 77 years on this earth, and it doesn’t appear that we have the leadership to turn it around anytime soon. As our economy sinks slowly into another recession the Washington Swamp on both sides of the aisle continues to prove that they are incapable of being good stewards of our tax dollars. They continue to borrow and spend Trillions on wasteful projects with no end in sight which will eventually have to be paid for by our grandchildren. Today many Americans are working two and three jobs to keep body and soul together while our leaders plan how to raise taxes and squeeze them financially with 86,000 more IRS agents to clean out whatever is left in their wallets and bank accounts.
We are definitely a country under siege: We have allowed the bureaucracies in America to grow and fester in Washington. It appears that we have no real leaders who have an interest in rectifying these problems. We elected a republican controlled house of representatives, yet it took 15 rounds of votes to elect a speaker which tell us something about the trust element in the republican party. Conservatives spend so much time fighting amongst themselves they have forgotten who the real enemy is. Government has become totally dysfunctional, and it doesn’t appear there will be much change in the next two years as conservatives continue the play the blame game of who was responsible for killing the Red Wave. They have even taken to blaming President Trump for just about all of the parties’ ills when in essence it was the old-line RINOs like Mitch McConnel who should carry much of the responsibility for the poor showing in the midterms. It appears that Republicans in general haven’t learned how to walk and chew gum at the same time, but they sure have figured out how to continue to waste our tax money on wars and wasteful nonessential Pork Projects.
Restricting our freedom of speech: We recently learned that our most respected law enforcement organizations have taken sides and interfered with our first amendment right, the freedom of speech. They did this not only in the general media spectrum but also in the content platforms for the large social media companies like Twitter, Facebook, and Google. I doubt that we will find out any time before the next presidential election just how much influence these mega media and social media companies had in our last election. One thing is for sure the laws must be changed so they can never do this again. Those federal law enforcement agencies that participated in these heinous acts of suppressing our freedom of speech need to be fully investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. We have been aware that these mega media companies have been restricting the flow of conservative thought on their platforms for many years and even employed many former members of these enforcement agencies. Unfortunately, too many Americans do not want to give up the convenience of having access to these media traitors as our children have all but become addicted to their mega propaganda sites. We have warned about these problems and explained why people should find other means of communication that were not censoring conservatives as were Facebook, Twitter, and Google. Most Americans ignored these problems that have now come back to bite them in the butt with their onerous restrictions of free speech. What is worse is their known coordination with government entities like the FBI, CIA, DHS along with many others have been exposed and we now know they have been involved in censoring us on social media platforms for years.
Some Courage is showing in our Christian Leaders: I had the opportunity to listen to a sermon at my church last week by a guest pastor who opened my eyes and the eyes of many of the members of our congregation. He convinced me that the answer to turning our country around lies within the grasp of our Christian church leaders. This man hit the nail on the head when he told us about a pastor of a very large Christian congregation in California. They were having problems with a local school board pushing the Woke agenda and he called on his congregation to run some of its members for this local school board. He asked that they support their candidacy to get them elected so they could affect the changes necessary in the school curriculum that would delete this WOKE agenda. You can imagine the shock that occurred when their Christian conservative slate won their elections proving that change could be made if they worked together.
The key to ending our country’s decline lies in our Church Leaders: We should all remember that America was founded on deeply shaped Christian moral truths. Winning the school board election was not the end of this pastor’s campaign for change. Soon after winning the school board election, this pastor called on his congregation to go out and raise awareness for 3 conservative republicans who were running in the midterm elections. Sure enough, they pulled together went out raised money and campaigned for these candidates and showed up on election day at the polls and all three of these conservative Christian candidates won their races. We need more Christian leaders like this pastor, to get their congregations involved with politics because as Christians we still have the power to change our country back to what our forefathers created. One nation under God indivisible with Liberty and justice for all. The United States has the largest Christian population in the world with nearly 210 million Christians and, as of 2021, over 140 million people affiliated with Protestant churches with many of these residing in the bible belt from Texas to the Carolinas. This is where the people’s power lies if we could only harness it and get the leaders of these Christian churches to speak up and get a movement started to fix this country. Nowadays it appears that the government is constantly attacking and trying to destroy Christianity because they fear that the Christians and their religious leaders will wake up, rise up and win elections to take the power away from these corrupt politicians and bureaucrats.
Is a Church’s Tax Exempt status so important that we stop fighting for our constitutional rights? Church leaders have always been aware that if they start talking politics the government will step in and take away their tax-exempt status but is it really all about money? Why is it ok for the government to play a part in destroying our religious values while we sit quietly and do nothing to stop these changes they are trying to make? If you don’t think the Government fears the power that sits in our church community you are mistaken, and you can see this in their efforts to indoctrinate our children into this new woke agenda through our public school system. It is time for our church leaders to take a long hard look at what is happening to our religious freedoms and liberties that our forefathers fought for. They need to wake up to the fact that if they don’t act soon this country will continue to decline morally, ethically, and religiously. To be sure there will be hesitancy for fear of raising the ire of government entities like the IRS but if the movement is big enough it is the government that will be afraid of the Christian communities voting power to remove them from office. Who will be the first to stand up and be counted on to save our country from the tyranny that is running rampant? Who will be the Christian standard bearer to stand up and say, “NO MORE” and begin the changing of the guard by encouraging people with strong Christian values to run for public office?
