"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

The Last Poll

Well the poll results are in. Of the 11 choices offered to the question "Which of these actions do you support for America?" the three with the highest scores were: 1. Take aggressive action to reclaim our government, our culture and our history. This answer got the most votes. It was followed closely by these two answers: 2. Reduce taxes. 3. Stop spending money at the Federal level.

It's encouraging to me that there are people out there who are contemplating the possible need for aggressive action. To me, that means people are weary and distrustful of what this Administration is doing, and that they are concerned that the Constitution is being abandoned, while at the same time, they recognize that an erosion of their liberty is in the works. In a way, I am thankful that Barack Obama was elected now instead of John McCain. Obama's aggressive Progressive push towards socialism has woken up a huge segment of America who would otherwise still be asleep - even as John McCain continued the slower walk down the same Progressive path.

Great Job America!

The Brainwashing Of A Nation

This from a former Soviet KGB agent, trained in subversive propaganda. Demoralization, Destabilization, Crisis, Normalization; these are the steps used to "transform" a nation. Ever hear that word before?

In America, the process of demoralizing the country has been working for the past 45 years - in fact, all those "social programs" created to benefit the American people are actually designed to demoralize specific segments of the population. Those recieving aid are demoralized because they feel no control over their lives. And those paying for those programs become demoralized because they see a growing population of "freeloaders". We're in the destabilization process now - the housing bubble, the banking crisis, the devaluation of the dollar, government take-over of private business, strong division between the liberals and conservatives with NO attempt to bridge the two. And we're heading quickly into "Crisis" mode - hyper-inflation, wholesale personnel changes in Congress, a growing "big brother" government, global warming, increased taxes and oil prices to name a few. What will the normalization process look like to us? What will it mean for us? Will we even recognize the America we'll become? This is scary, scary stuff - and it's real! Wake Up America!

How Did We Survive?

We started out by traveling across the ocean for a better life - a life removed from tyrannical government that would not listen to our voices, no matter how often or how loudly we spoke. And we survived the journey! We survived the Revolution, and over time created a life of our own, and then a country, and then a government. All three were possible because of God's Grace; and yes we believed! And we survived! And in the process we created the finest government in history, and defined that government when we wrote The Constitution of the United States of America! We survived the Indian Wars, the Civil War, and the war of 1812. Life was tough, but we relied on God, weren't afraid of, or adverse to, working hard; it was expected - both by our neighbors and ourselves.  And we built our lives and our country - and we survived. We fought in WWI and survived. We became the greatest nation on earth! We embraced the Golden Age of the 20's, and ushered in the Crash of 1929. And through it all we survived. But that was before...

That was before Progressivism wormed it's way into America.

And so now we are a different America. Oh sure, we survived the attack on Pearl Harbor, WWII, the Korean and Vietnam Wars, the Civil Rights Movement, the Cold War, The Gulf War, the attack on The World Trade Center and even 9/11. But during the past 60 years there has been a religious and moral erosion in America that's taken it's toll on us, even as the events that dramatically impact our country come quicker, with shorter and shorter intervals between each.  And we've been programmed to diminish God's importance in our lives. Now we only look to God when we are afraid. Well that's not going to allow us to survive any longer.

We survived the first 150 years of our existence because of our faith, not despite it. But if you analyzed today against 1925, you'd find a far different population in America. Different values, different personal responsibility expectations, different work ethics, different principles, different expectations of our neighbors, a different government role. And you'd find a far different emphasis on God.

So when you ask yourself "how did we ever survive?" look no further than God. And when you ask yourself "Will we continue to survive?" ask yourself "Where is God now?" That should give you the answer...

Wake Up America!
