Meanwhile back in the Left Wing of the White House, plans move forward to gain total control of U.S. citizens through the guise of a nationwide defense network of governments preparing for the end of the world, as imagined by the believers in anthropogenic global warming, code named “climate change”.
Where in the Constitution is that elusive enumerated power to dictate what is to be done within communities? Doesn’t the Tenth Amendment say something about “reserved to the States respectively, or to the people“?
While various and sundry Obama scandals distract us, unwelcome federal planning moves silently forward.
As you read this, the Fed directs banks to test how they will do after a 50% drop in the stock market.
Is it incompetence? Or, is it a conspiracy that threatens the very foundations of our beloved country? Perhaps it’s a conspiracy hidden out in public view.
On October 31, 2008, this sitting president announced, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming America”. What does that mean for you, me and our progeny?
We conservatives can rant and rave all we want, but somehow I sense we have gone beyond the point of no return. The best adding machine in the world can’t calculate our national debt that explodes exponentially by the minute.
Regardless the outcome of elections in November, except for a miracle, our goose is cooked. We’re in a mess from which only the Living God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob can deliver us to a place of safety.
Some may say, “I don’t believe in God.” I accept that. I know many good people who don’t believe in God. To be sure, time comes when your only recourse will be to cry out to God. It was once said, there are no atheists in foxholes.
Perhaps this is a good time for us to realign ourselves with the One who empowered our founding fathers to wrest our captivity from the hands of the British throne.
Wisdom of Benjamin Franklin comes to mind this evening. Delegates in Philadelphia wrestled for weeks trying to “fix” the confederacy, but to no avail. Herewith his immortal words:
“The small progress we have made after 4 or five weeks close attendance & continual reasonings with each other — our different sentiments on almost every question, several of the last producing as many noes as ays, is methinks a melancholy proof of the imperfection of the Human Understanding. We indeed seem to feel our own wont of political wisdom, since we have been running about in search of it. We have gone back to ancient history for models of government, and examined the different forms of those Republics which having been formed with the seeds of their own dissolution now no longer exist. And we have viewed Modern States all round Europe, but find none of their Constitutions suitable to our circumstances.
In this situation of this Assembly groping as it were in the dark to find political truth, and scarce able to distinguish it when to us, how has it happened, Sir, that we have not hitherto once thought of humbly applying to the Father of lights to illuminate our understandings? In the beginning of the contest with G. Britain, when we were sensible of danger we had daily prayer in this room for the Divine Protection. — Our prayers, Sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a Superintending providence in our favor. To that kind providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? or do we imagine that we no longer need His assistance.
I have lived, Sir, a long time and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth — that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings that “except the Lord build they labor in vain that build it.” I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall be become a reproach and a bye word down to future age. And what is worse, mankind may hereafter this unfortunate instance, despair of establishing Governments by Human Wisdom, and leave it to chance, war, and conquest.
I therefore beg leave to move — that henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven, and its blessings on our deliberations, be held in this Assembly every morning before we proceed to business, and that one or more of the Clergy of this City be requested to officiate in that service.”
I invite you to join with me in calling out to God, asking Him to have mercy on us, to deliver us from certain evil and to restore this nation on a solid foundation. The words for “calling out to God” are supplication and prayer.
“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” — God’s personal invitation to each of us to pray to Him.
