It Sure Seems Like We're Done
American Thinker ^ | 1/1/11 | Jack Curtis

For those legislating and regulating industry out of the country and reducing our living standard back to maybe 1800 to call themselves Progressives requires a sense of humor, but in a way, they're right. Closing Post-Classical civilization to move into a new era can be called progress, at least by some. Most in the newborn Western Christian era during its early Dark Ages might not have seen it as progress but we at the intended end of its flowering of wealth and technology certainly think of it that way.

History leaves no doubt that civilizations rise and fall; the fall always beginning when rising ends. The Classical era passed in under a millennium and a half; ours has already gone longer but Reagan's Morning in America has become Obama's Closing Time. Deindustrializing America is an endgame and if the Obamacrats are saving the planet, it's not for underemployed Americans.

Mostly Gnosti-cism packaged in  warm and fuzzy New Age Rainbow wrapping paper;  constituting occult doctrinal eggs laid by parasitic transhumanist WASPs inside the temporal Church body -- that hatch and then progressively eat the social caterpillar alive from within...
 
Apoidea Parasitica Gnostic Evangelium
 
It is the essence of anti-Christ.

... the only proven system of mass wealth creation, Christian capitalism, is equally under government's wrecking ball. Capitalism is entirely a product of the self-interest of free individuals; Christian capitalism limits the selfishness with Judeo-Christian morality but still rests on self-interest and individual freedom.

I've just added this line to my list of eternal quotations. Beautiful!

Somehow ... maybe with Glenn Beck’s urging ... I find myself oddly optimistic.

Americans are a strange breed of cat. We don’t follow the regulation drummer but we always find a drummer to our own liking.

Combine that with God’s amazing love for America and we have a winning combination.

We haven’t hit bottom yet. Far from it. We’re headed there, but we haven’t hit.

Secession? Sure, we can start there. Armed revolt by patriot citizens? Why not? Widespread hangings of bureaucrats and disobedient government officials? I’d be delighted!

There are many options still unmentioned, FRiends! We have a lot of cards yet to play!
