Terrorism should be defeated with love...and superior firepower...- Terry Ingle
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." --Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

"Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. … In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society." Antonio Gramsci - Marxist - teacher of Saul Alinsky

Just thinking again...

My son Matt called me today from Nashville. As we chatted during his drive home from work my mind was spinning with memories of his childhood. We had such good times with he and his brother. Even though we had limited financial resources, we always seemed to find the time for some fishing or a bike ride, camping, playing catch, going to the zoo or whatever. Good times...

When Matt pulled into the driveway my grandson Alex ran to the car to meet him. He said that the first thing he saw laying in the driveway was a pair of Crocs and a diaper, leading me to think that just about all that Alex had on was a smile. I thought about the time when the boys were little and they were still glad to see me come home from work. Later as they got older They were too busy playing Nintendo, but I still got a distracted "hi" when I came into the room. It was and still is great being a dad. I loved it then and I still love it now.

We are expecting a granddaughter at the end of the summer and my thoughts frequently travel to the kind of world that she and Alex will grow up in. The "change" that we were promised during the campaigns is coming to pass. Unfortunately it won't be the change that the disciples of this Marxist president thought. No one will get a free house, there will never be a job for everyone, there will always be poor people and my grand kids will be paying for a debt that they did not create and will never benefit from.

As parents we all want better for our children than we had. By the time my grand kids grow up they will be facing an entirely different world than we have now. If this downward spiral continues unabated, they will have fewer freedoms to make choices in their lives. They will be indoctrinated by a culture that says that you are evil if you want to think as an individual. They will be pressured to conform to a thought process that the government is the benevolent provider. That the only right thing to do is to give your hard earned money to them so that everyone will get their share whether they have worked for it or not. It will be treasonous to own property because it belongs to everyone and you will be considered selfish to provide for your family. You will be expected to provide for the government so that they can distribute it as they see fit. They will be told what they can say, what they can listen to, who to question, how to worship.

Quite frankly, it is very difficult for me to look into the eyes of anyone who voted this government in and not feel resentful. I want to tell them to look at what they have done, and ask them what the hell they were thinking. Someone said that if we don't learn from our mistakes we are doomed to repeat them. Obviously, we haven't learned.

Even though I do get discouraged on occasion, I still believe in the Spirit of the Patriot and the Power of our God. Maybe He is allowing us to go down this path so that we will have to lean on Him again for our direction. Whether He chooses to change the hearts of our leaders or He leads us into a physical battle to take our country back, HE will have to guide us and we will have to seek Him for His Divine wisdom. He will give it if we just ask.
