    drrik,
    Great post with all the problems we have here in the US. It is very sad indeed, being the richest nation on earth, that we have so many issues. In my very humble opinion I believe that some of the problems you listed are because basically as a nation we are dysfunctional.

      We’re designed to be a democratic republic. The “confusion of the multitude” that Madison wrote about prevents that reality. And without that, there is nothing that prevents the slide to tyranny and loss of freedom.

      • pepperhawk says:

        drrik,

        I think the slide is pretty steep now and tyranny is at hand. If the Fraud gets another term, and a “free rein” as he put it, there will be no end to his machinations to enslave us.

      I think John Winthrop was exactly right when he wrote about that hill:
      ” for wee must Consider that wee shall be as a Citty upon a Hill, the eies of all people are uppon us; soe that if wee shall deale falsely with our god in this worke wee have undertaken and soe cause him to withdrawe his present help from us, wee shall be made a story and a byword through the world, wee shall open the mouthes of enemies to speake evill of the wayes of god and all professours for Gods sake; wee shall shame the faces of many of gods worthy servants, and cause theire prayers to be turned into Cursses upon us till wee be consumed out of the good land whether wee are going:”

    The current state of our country does remind me of the ancient Jews in The Story, which is a novelized version of the Bible our church is reading as a congregation. God kept telling them to behave. The would, for a while, and blessings would flow. Then they would turn away from God, worship false gods, engage in all manner of debauchery and ignore God’s warnings to shape up. Every time, they were punished for their “stiff-necked” ways. I see parallels in the way our country has begun to turn away from the values and morals which were the foundation of our success as a nation. The Founders believed their ideas would only work in a Godly, moral nation. We’ve been headed away from our original values for some time now, and I wonder how long God will have patience with us. And drrik you are right–almost all of our woes are the result of leftist policies and ideas. Will the pendulum swing back? Or is it too late by half?

    It’s like Lincoln’s religion: When we do good, we end up feeling good. When we do bad, we end up feeling bad. We’re at the beginning of that latter sentence here. We may end up with considerably farther to go on this swing.
