As we pause to celebrate the birth of this blessed nation, many among us are sad and even disgusted over what has happened to it.
Millions of Americans who have known the old Americathe one they were born in and grew up infeel a deep disappointment that their grandchildren will not grow up to know the country that valued morality and biblical ethics.
From the White House to the schoolhouse, we see forces that reject biblical values. From our government, we even see the outlawing of the name of Jesus from public prayers, especially from the military, which owes all victories to Him.
And there are also those, such as my family and me, who immigrated to this blessed land and long for the original Americathe America as envisioned by the founding fathers.
I came to this country because, as a boy living under the tyranny of dictatorship and socialism, I longed to be free. I read the writings of Americas founders and dreamed of breathing the air of freedomthe air that was purchased with the blood of many American patriots.
That desire echoes the desire of the silent majority of millions of immigrants who legally came here, or were brought by their forebears. People who valued America and could never take it for granted because they had experienced oppressive political systems in their home countries.
In my article series, The Price of Liberty, I described what those millions of legal immigrants want. It is a refrain that goes something like this:
We want the America that feared God.
We want the America whose foundation was the Bible.
We want the America of which George Washington said: It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.
We want the America of which Abraham Lincoln said: The only assurance of our nations safety is to lay our foundation in morality and religion.
We want the America of the Founding Fathers who said: When the importance of religion is diminished so is the effectiveness of government.
We want the America of which the Supreme Court in 1844 said: The Bible, and especially the New Testament [should] be read and taught as divine revelation in the [schools, otherwise] where can the purest principles of morality be learned so clearly or so perfectly as from the New Testament?
We want the America of which New York Supreme Court Chief Justice Kent said in 1811: We are a Christian people, and the morality of the country is deeply engrafted upon Christianity, and not upon the doctrines or worship of those imposters [other religions].
We want the America of which the Supreme Court of New York in 1811 also said: Whatever strikes at the root of Christianity tends manifestly to the dissolution of the civil government because it tends to corrupt the morals of the people, and to destroy good order.
We want the America of which Daniel Webster said: The principles of all genuine liberty and of wise laws and administrations, are to be drawn from the Bible and sustained by its authority. The man, therefore, who weakens or destroys the divine authority of that book may be an accessory to all of the public disorders which society is doomed to suffer.
Today we are seeing Websters prophetic words come to life; we are witnessing all the public disorders of which we are now doomed to suffer.
This race to the bottom must stop. We want the old America back.
We want the America that reflects the beliefs of most of the country, not the vocal and belligerent minority. We want an America of those earlier courts, not the courts of the last fifty years that have been busy striking at the Christian cornerstone of our nation.
As we celebrate Americas birth, let us not become weary of praying and working for our Judeo-Christian foundation to be reestablished.
The priest today at the Latin Mass was talking about the government coming against us
And he is right.
This country does not even come close to resembling the country I grew up in.
Michael Youssef is a fellow who loves God, loves liberty and our country.
America currently buys 440 billion dollars of stuff in just one year from China, while only selling 122 billion dollars of stuff back to China.
We run a MASSIVE trade deficit.
We are 17.5 trillion dollars in debt. That is a big part of the problem.
Nobody here (or practically anywhere) is saying a darned thing about this huge and growing problem.
America has exported far too much, of America’s businesses.
Bring back US jobs.
Obama and his New Illegals will make the US just like Home
America is going to be irrelevant on the world stage. It’ll be a 3rd world economy and in terms of demographics once we have open southern borders.
List the countries and religions that want to see America decline.
That’s who funded Obama. He’s the first post-American president but sadly not the last.
there’s more of a chance that the US will breakup
Let the Secessions begin! John Edwards was right, there are at least Two Americas. My beliefs since the. night of our last Pres. election.
“America is going to be irrelevant on the world stage. Itll be a 3rd world economy and in terms of demographics once we have open southern borders.”
I think our overlords want the open borders so this country of 350 million can compete with two Asian countries of over a billion each...
As long as we allow for the huge demographic change that is currently underway there is little we can do to stop it.
