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.
Excellent commentary about the state of our nation.
I often wonder how a great power like Rome fell.
I understand now. They threw it all away.
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...; )
Behind = begin....dang autocorrect
Good article and a must read.
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.
Did Billy Graham really say that?
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.
Yes he did!
Oh and...there’s a little part of me that REALLY, REALLY likes Col. Nathan Jessup.
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.
Antony And Cleopatra Act 1, scene 1
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. . .
Excellent summation and closing advice.
