Despite our republic’s current struggles with the after effects of over seven years of Obama, I am still of the opinion that America will arise from here current state of economic, moral, political, military, and educational doldrums. Yes, on the surface and maybe a bit below the surface, it does seem as if America’s best days are permanently behind her. After all, the economy is locked into a mode of stagnation. The Obama military downgrades have literally placed the United States in danger of serious challenges from China, Russia, and Muslims who want to shame our society with sharia law.

Aristotle’s law of identity plainly states that A is A, a thing is what it is. In 1979 the Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei of Iran declared Islamic war against the West, primarily the United States and Israel. Since then Muslims of all stripes have been acting out on that declaration of war. Unfortunately, America and the West have not consistently met the challenge and have emboldened the Muslim Islamic Jihadists through years of inadequate challenges to the Islamic onslaught.

Just recently when perusing news stories, I happened upon a most heartbreaking story headline. It proclaimed “London’s iconic red buses to declare glory to Allah.” After getting over the initial shock I was a bit embarrassed. Considering the massive evil in-roads the devoted Muslims have made making deep intrusions into British society for decades, I should not have been shocked one little bit.
The dangerous habit of western societies to sacrifice their own well-being just to appease those who have pledged to convert them or destroy them is miles beyond stupid. Britain’s largest Islamic charity says it wants to “break down barriers” and portray Islam positively by launching a new advertising campaign which will slap the phrase “glory to Allah on the sides of London buses. Muslims reading the advertisements are told to “gather the rewards of Ramadan,” that they must donate Islamic relief. That is a Muslim organization which used to have an account with banking giant HSBC. The accounts were closed due to major “concerns that cash for aid could end up with Muslim terrorist groups throughout the world.”

There are some, including yours truly that believe America will soon experience a major turnaround for the better. Still others are predicting her permanent demise on the ash heap of history. It is true, ¬¬¬our republic is riddled with a plethora of problems. She is morally, ethically, spiritually and without a doubt, economically crippled. The wasteful spending of congress and the even more wasteful application of economic decisions by the most socialist oriented president in United States history is placing our nation on the brink of utter collapse. America’s corporate tax rate remains the Obama preferred highest on planet earth.
When one throws in the zealous over regulation of economic activity that also contributes to the continued reduction of America’s economic power. A record number of Americans remain jobless and are increasingly feeling hopeless about their prospects of finding employment. Scores of small and medium sized businesses have closed over the past seven years, because of the never ending piling on of PC and environmental regulations. Thanks to environmental regulation bullying, there are no longer enough jobs to go around for all qualified sovereign citizens of America who want to work. The Obama era regulatory wall against economic activity is so massive that increasing numbers of Americans believe that their children and grandchildren will experience a much poorer America and fewer opportunities.

Despite the ongoing onslaught of lies the progressives promote against the truth concerning anything, including American history, the United States of America was founded upon Judeo/Christian Ethics. In many circles, there was a heavy emphasis on the blessed leadership, protection, wisdom and mercy of God almighty, through his son Christ Jesus. Great men of adventure, dating all the way back to Christopher Columbus dedicated land in this hemisphere to the God of Abraham, Isaic and Jacob. As time progressed, there came to the fore a series of events that would build toward what would later become the United States of America.
If you have ever taken the time to ponder upon the state of education in America, perhaps you may consider the process of eliminating the influence of the Christian Bible. The book of Proverbs reminds us that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. (1:7) Despite the often repeated lie of bigoted progressives and some libertarians, the Founding Fathers realized the importance of providing and maintaining the needed influence of biblical absolutes upon the future direction of the republic.
In 1776, the future president John Adams said, “statesmen may plan and speculate for liberty, but it is religion and morality alone which can establish the very principles upon which freedom can securely stand.” Of course, contrary to misguided popular opinion, that worthy mindset was widely held among the founders who helped shape the political, educational, and legal foundation of the United States of America.
Such luminaries like Daniel Webster, Benjamin Franklin, Benjamin Rush, Samuel Adams, and the father of our country, George Washington and many others echoed those same sentiments. They wisely believed that the strength of the republic was dependent upon the morality of “We the People.” They also believed that religion (I would say Christianity) must undergird it. The founders clearly understood and saw the proper education of young minds being near the center of positive American progress.
