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.
The rest? We're on the same page and more or less agree on our situation. Little by little, Americans broke the deal our FF's made, especially the greatest generation's kids, and we're on our own now.
Their parents won that time's battle against evil and then more or less inherited the world.
So evil bides its time and lays down the necessary groundwork using the standard, well documented techniques.
When the time was right, the greatest generation's kid's generation were like the little kids in the horror movie where some evil tricks them into opening the door.
And it looks to me like all hell has been breaking loose around here ever since.
That probably sounds crazy, maybe it is, but what is crazier still, is that I think we, as in "We, the People" can stop it if enough of us understand the problem, as you clearly seem to, and fight to stop further damage and fight to undo and fix current damage and turn it around.
If we seek the help we need, I think/believe miracles can/will happen. If we, the people, don't get that help, consequences will have their way with us. We put our faith in the wrong things and places.
It's not too late for the cure, but either way we're in for a rough ride. Our infection is widespread.
Interesting times, huh? To me, it feels like we are about to be tested.
You seem to know way more about Mormonism than I do. I'm sure I have a Mormon Bible somewhere, but I never got very far reading it.
