I was lead to believe this was not the case by the Progressive bowel movement's successful takeover of our school system.
This is 180 out and a couple of light years away from the truth.
This is the deal we made:
The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.
--George Washington, First Inaugural Address, April 30, 1789
As long as we upheld our end of the deal, we enjoyed God's grace and protection. Look around. Pretty obvious we have broken that deal and now, lucky us, are getting the first wake up calls of the consequences heading directly for US.
I maintain that is what the progressives had in mind. They saw/knew the truth. Once they got us to cross that line, the protection was lifted and we could be taken down, but not before.
And cross the line we did! 1973 was certainly a milestone, probably the final straw.
And if and until we get back to where we once belonged, Nothing, no symptom based solution is going to "fix" our problems. Things just keep on ramping up.
And lucky us, we're the ones the consequences land on...but we're also the ones who can truly fix it.
Or maybe we'll be around to hit the America Restart button once the dust settles.
This cannot be "fixed" any time soon as there simply aren't enough willing to take the stands needed.
When you say "we" can fix this just who do you mean?
This 'nation' isn't in need of Restoration.....the 'political system' needs an overhaul. Our people know the meaning of freedom and most understand it was not free...they also know what to do if given the freedom to do so.
George Washingtons statements were not a Covenant....they were statements made by our first President for and about our nation recognizing that without the hand of the Almighty this nation would not have come to be and why it was dedicated to God by our founders. It was honoring God for His hand in the affairs of men.
The "rules of order" are written for us thru the Constitution, Declaration of Independence and the Federalists Papers.....all of which are basically grounded in the scriptures....and our governance no longer is willing to uphold these.
We are a Christ-less nation more and more and are battling that which calls evil good and good evil. Our Government is corrupt...."religion" will not save it....we have far too many foreign religions in this country for any one religion to rise to the top....instead there will be an ingathering of the faiths, which is dangerous, and will lead us in the wrong direction.
Romney is already being heralded as the one to solve the issue with Islam in our country....as Islam and Mormonism have been sharing the same bed for a time now. But it will not be as most imagine possible and we are seriously mistaken to think otherwise.
The end result of the agendas now being pushed will not solve this nations problems. ......there are powers that be on an international scale which will continue to weaken this country....and IMO until these are recognized this nation will not recover from it's fall.
Romeny is totally a Globalist in his thinking and that will indeed be the way he takes this nation....no different than Obamas agenda.
