Pictures and media taken from various sources across the web. Obviously, Paul Harvey's content was not created by me.) If somebody has plain audio of Paul Harvey monologue, I would greatly appreciate a link. Nothing is purer than Paul's golden voice.

Found this on Twitter...
I used to enjoy listening to Paul Harvey when i was growing up and into my adulthood.
Me too. I miss hearing him on the radio. I thought Fred Thompson had taken over for him, but I never hear the segment anymore even on the conservative channels.
I would make divorce acceptable and easy, even fashionable. If the family crumbles, so does the nation; I would compel people to express their most depraved fantasies on canvas and movie screens, and call it art; I would convince the world that people are born homosexuals, and that their lifestyles should be accepted; I would convince the people that right and wrong are determined by a few who call themselves authorities and refer to their agenda as politically correct; I would persuade people that the church is irrelevant and out of date, and the Bible is for the naive; I would dull the minds of Christians, and make them believe that prayer is not important, and that faithfulness and obedience are optional; Hmmm... I guess if I were the devil, I'd leave things pretty much the way they are.
Paul Harvey was a franchise squandered. And a new voice wouldn’t have had to work quite as hard as Paul did to assume the mantle.
I met Harvey back in the 70s and he said his day started at 4:30 in the morning at his Chicago office where he would re-write the Chicago papers.
He usually did two morning shows and a quarter hour noon broadcast. Almost all the shows were written, produced and in the can by 10 AM.
Material was added by a couple of editors who polished stories from other US and a few foreign papers that were mailed in.
I don’t think Harvey never had a scoop of his own.
There were few like Paul Harvey...and fewer still now days.
Paul Harvey....American patriot, American original.....American!
Back then, he knew the rest of the story.
This should have gotten 100 hits.
Well done and very thorough on your list. Also your tweets are timely and relevant. I’ve made you my new dr#dge. Thanks & shalom.
Huckabee does it now.
Wow. Thank you for that.
...and shalom aleichem
Lucifer was not evil.
God gives man what he needs. Lucifer wanted to give man what he wants. Lucifer challenged God proposing that Man would worship him for giving him man he wants, rather than God giving him what he needs.
God gave man ‘free will’. The problem is that man chooses the wrong things, the evil things, the bad things, the things that appeal to the senses, the lust, the desire for power and control over others. The DEVIL in is man, not Lucifer.
The result (as described in theological literature) is that man is turning away from GOD (what he needs) and turning to EVIL (what he wants).
It is all up to us. When enough turn away from God, then we will see what most would call ‘the end of the (civilized) world’. Not because GOD will do something to us, but because we will have done it to ourselves.
Thanks for posting the article/link.
P.S. And as PAUL HARVEY pointed out, we are already way down that road.
Here is the CONDENSED VERSION
By Paul Harvey
I would gain control of the most powerful nation in the world;
I would delude their minds into thinking that they had come from man’s
effort, instead of God’s blessings;
I would promote an attitude of loving things and using people, instead of
the other way around;
I would dupe entire states into relying on gambling for their state revenue;
I would convince people that character is not an issue when it comes to
I would make it legal to take the life of unborn babies;
I would make it socially acceptable to take one’s own life, and invent
machines to make it convenient;
I would cheapen human life as much as possible so that life of animals are
valued more than human beings;
I would take God out of the schools, where even the mention of His name was
grounds for a lawsuit;
I would come up with drugs that sedate the mind and target the young, and I
would get sports heroes to advertise them;
I would get control of the media, so that every night I could pollute the
minds of every family member for my agenda;
I would attack then family, the backbone of any nation. I would make
divorce acceptable and easy, even fashionable. If the family crumbles, so
does the nation;
I would compel people to express their most depraved fantasies on canvas and
movies screens, and I would call it art;
I would convince the world that people are born homosexuals, and that their
lifestyles should be accepted and marveled;
I would convince the people that right and wrong are determined by a few who
call themselves authorities and refer to their agendas as politically
I would persuade people that the church is irrelevant and out of date, the
Bible is for the naive:
I would dull the minds of Christians, and make them believe that prayer is
not important, and that faithfulness and obedience are optional;
I GUESS I WOULD LEAVE THINGS PRETTY MUCH THE WAY THEY ARE!
