Excellent article!
A few weeks ago, the pastor who teaches my adult Sunday School class had to go out of town on a Walk to Emmaus retreat, and had me fill in for him on the class that day (I'm currently in my second year of classes at a theological seminary, he has long been very supportive of me, and I had filled in for him on another class a couple months ago and did pretty well, so he figured I'd make a worthy substitute for him that day). For the last couple months, we had been looking at memorable figures from the Bible in each lesson, and for the one I led, I taught about Samson. In my lesson on Samson (The pastor wrote out a reference sheet for me to use, but I also incorporated a little of my own knowledge on the story), the focus was more on people's individual temptations, and how we each need to work on becoming wiser and more resistant to temptation in our lives. However, your theme on how it can apply to us as a nation as a whole is a great, valid point, as well.

I believe our Lord does not seek America’s destruction, but her conversion. And like the Prodigal Son, if need be, he will bring this country to its knees. There’s a punishment coming to this country, but the end result will be, for the most part, to purify us and bring us back to Him.
