America Has Sown the Seeds Of Its Own Demise
RCM ^ | 11/08/2012 | Dean Kalahar

In the aftermath of the election of 2012, a new reality must be digested by all Americans. Working within the precepts of a democratic republic, The American public freely exercised their choice and voted for a New America.

The electorates' decision once and for all confirms a definition of America that values hopes, feelings and equality of results over the realities of human nature, history, and the foundational principles that hold western civilization together. There is now no doubt that the tipping point of geometrically increasing cultural decline has been crossed. America has now firmly changed from a nation where the founding principles of the great enlightenment have been substituted for a utopia of widespread human suffering. There is no going back.

MORE LAMENTATIONS FROM THE ABOVE ARTICLE:

Our family institution has been redefined into a bizarre amalgam of gender, sexual, and parental proclivities. 40% of children are born out of wedlock and 25% of teenagers have a sexually transmitted disease. The overt-sexualization of our society has created confusion and despair among our children, while infanticide has become an all too easy choice. Biological and psychological realities for sanctioning marriage between a man and woman for the sake of our posterity have been ruthlessly attacked by those seeking to re-define the universal order. Our families have lost the culture war.

Free market entrepreneurial principles no longer guide our economic system. Efficiencies, life saving economic growth and opportunity based on the laws of human nature and scarcity have been forsaken by an ever encroaching government institution that believes a command and control approach of central planning can better answer the questions of what, how, and for whom. Our economic system has lost the culture war.

As well as “Going Galt” as much as possible (i.e. “Starving The Beast”), if you’re at a place where someone is singing the national anthem, start laughing every time the line, “O’er the land of the free...” is sung. Hopefully it will spread.

It’s not a hymn.

Excellent article, well worth the read. Makes me glad I’m not just starting out though. Our kids will have a completely different country than the one we grew up in.

I often wonder how a great power like Rome fell.

I understand now. They threw it all away.

America has now firmly changed from a nation
where the founding principles of the great enlightenment
have been substituted for a utopia of widespread human suffering.

Economic catastrophe starting about 2015
We have only seen a whisper of this
Entrepreneurs cease to Build Businesses, Jobs disappear
Distribution Channels Collapse
Health Care drops to level of Frontier Medicine

Government responds by Killing Self Love
and replacing it with Fear

About 20,000,000 deaths in US alone
possible as much as 1/3 population
Widespread suffering, starvation, pestilence
Cities will be death traps

The only thing to prevent it was to
permit a lesser catastrophe
But the cards are dealt now

100 years from now,
the last Countries Standing are ChiComs and India

Be Kind One to Another
Tenderhearted, Forgiving One Another

Do Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly

Live in Christ

I sincerely believe that, at some point in the near future, 0bama is going to reveal his true colors and step over the line in trying to implement either some new technology (mandatory chip implementation), draft new legislation that is overtly intrusive and very obviously designed to give himself or the government a frightening new level of power, or caught doing something so treasonous that even the Left will begin to wonder. It will be something where there is no doubt that it is to expand the power base of the government to a whole new level and very obviously of no benefit to the people at all. It will be then that the Left will know that they were used and we will finally begin to see his support crumble. At some point the blinders and the mind control will wear off and even they will be pissed. Then the fun will behind...; )

Billy Graham said:

“If God doesn’t punish America, He owes Sodom an apology.”

Obama is simply indulging the culture in it’s sloth, lust, and gluttony.

LOL! Good point.

I haven't recited the pledge of allegiance in years.

Not only was it written in the 1850's by an avowed Socialist, but the fact that 'pledging allegiance' equates with taking an oath of fealty.

Conveniently, our public education never told us about ALL the causes of the Revolutionary War....particularly the part about the Founders refusing to swear an Oath of Fealty to the King of England.

I'll be damned if I'll swear fealty to a piece of cloth! Not to mention it hasn't been the Republic for 'which it stands' for almost 200 years.

Once government succeeded in doing an end-run around the Constituion, we became an Empire.

I’ve read several “state of the nation” essays written over the least 24 hours.

This is by far the best.

Thank you for posting.

If they couldn’t see it now no amount of power grabbing will awaken them. How many illegal and overreaching things has the president and his administration done? He’s done enough to have been impeached ten times over by a sane populace and congress. But instead Congress just keeps letting him grab power, he can defy the Supreme Court with no consequences, and the populace re-elects him. I don’t think the blinders will ever come off. They are wilfully ignorant.

Terrific quote from Shakespeare

Antony And Cleopatra Act 1, scene 1

Antony:
Let Rome in Tiber melt, and the wide arch
Of the rang’d empire fall! Here is my space,
Kingdoms are clay; our dungy earth alike
Feeds beast as man. . .

Probably because Satan has his back. You know years ago I noticed a certain phenomenon that pissed me off to no end while working on criminal cases. I call it “gypsy luck”. I noticed that many of the hardcore criminals I worked on had a strong propensity to have strokes of luck that allowed them to escape capture or evade efforts at surveillance. As if by magic something would come up at the last second that would make them leave or they would somehow be alerted to leave their premises or a bus would pull in front if them right as we were about to catch them meeting with another criminal element to engage in a transaction. After years of viewing this phenomenon and taking notes I’ve come to the conclusion this is notvrandom; that there arecexternal forces that protect those that engage in evil as a lifestyle. I think that force is Satan and that he protects those that are truly evil.

I have had difficulty understanding the language used in some versions of the Bible and gave up after reading it once. Still a believer, but more by osmosis than through study.

I found new motivation for many things, thanks to obama, and so I found more easily understood versions and things are opening up and my understanding grows.

One point seems to be a continual theme said many different ways: you reap what you sow, what goes around comes around, do unto others as you'd have done unto you, forgive our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, etc.

This eye for an eye type of teaching applies to punishment, such as in Romans 1 where the tables are turned and the offenders are judged by their own standards. Yikes!

We have chosen to re-elect the party who tried to remove God and supporting Israel from their party platform, who strongly advocates abortion at any time, even babies born alive after surviving the attempt to kill them, to be our official representatives and speak for us. Double Yikes!!

I fear the consequences, but I understand we've demonstrated a need for correction and education.

The third iteration of the 7 year cycle apparently is scheduled for 2015 and we chose poorly in 2012. May God have mercy.

When I came back from voting for Romney, I told my wife:

If Romney wins, he will have about a 50 percent chance of turning the economy around. However, in any case, he will leave office four years later a despised man and with the Republican Party in ruins.

If Obama wins, there will be no chance of turning the economy around. In fact it will descend into further ruin, and Obama will leave office four years later a despised man, and the Democrat Party will have collapsed.

Of course that is an optimistic view. It could be worse. After all, we are no longer a nation. We are just a squabbling collection of minorities living together and apart in a loosely defined geographical area.

I can’t see China and India becoming wealthy. After the US and Europe collapse financially and become 2nd world nations, where are China and India going to get the consumers to make them rich?

This is the paradox.

China and India are soaring by supplying the consumerism of the USA and Europe. When those economies crash and the middle classes become either strapped or non-existent, there won’t be masses of US and European middle classes with disposable income to flood China and India with.

A falling tide beaches all boats.

When they’ve killed the geese that lay the golden eggs, then no more golden eggs will be forthcoming. The post-American world is going to be as poverty stricken as it is ruthless.

There is no knowing when. I only know it comes from moral courage caused by people embracing Judeo-Christian beliefs. When we return to Jesus, we will have our Enlightenment.

That won’t be soon. We have to collapse and suffer through tyranny before some future generation finds the spiritual courage through Christ the Lord to stand up for themselves and rebel against Tyranny.

The current generations have dropped the ball and sent us into Tyranny.

No, Freedom will not come soon. We are racing toward Oppression.
