Sometimes it is said that a man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he then be trusted with the government of others? Recent history has proven that to be very true. No one of with any measure of moral conscience will deny the recent history of government being shepherded toward oblivion by proponents of evil. ¬I hate to bring it up, but the Obama administration is perhaps the premier example of a man that cannot be trusted and should not be have been granted the privilege of governing our republic. But unfortunately therein lies another problem that must be addressed as we engage perhaps the most important election in our nation’s history.
As “We the People” prepare to choose who will lead our republic, perhaps we should take a closer look at ourselves and refine our vision of what kind of America do we want going forward. To aid in our search let us consider what do we want to leave for our children. History will answer that question loud and clear with the results of our decisions. If we do not reconnect with the Christian based values that were the foundational building blocks of our America we shall witness the completion of the destructive mission of the progressive enemies from within our population ranks. Let us as Americans with courage and confidence pursue our own federal and republican principles.
As part of his 1801 Inaugural address, President Thomas Jefferson stated: Enlightened by a benign religion, professed, indeed, and practiced in various forms, yet all of them inculcating honesty, truth, temperance, gratitude, and the love of man; acknowledging and adoring an overruling Providence, which by all its dispensations proves that it delights in the happiness of man here and his greater happiness hereafter. With all these blessings, what more is necessary to make us a happy and prosperous people? (I couldn’t help but pause here and ask this question. Have you noticed how the further Americans are indoctrinated against the principles and beliefs that made the United States the envy of the world, she is actually both less happy and prosperous?)
Still one thing more, fellow citizens—a wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned…You should understand what I deem the essential principles of our government…. Equal and exact justice to all men, of, whatever state or persuasion, religious or political…the arraignment of all abuses at the bar of public reason; freedom of religion; freedom of the press, and freedom of a person under the protection of the habeas corpus and trial by jury impartially selected…
Unfortunately, our nation has succumbed to the lowest common denominator when it comes to morality, government function, individual liberties, as well as the economy and other relevant concerns.
If our republic is to reemerge as a beacon of light and liberty, to the teeming masses that would want to come to America legally to become Americans, our nation will first have to return to being the actual America that good and decent people around the world would want to be a part of. Think about it, as our nation has become increasingly immoral, she has also degenerated from a land of liberty into a semi big government police state over every aspect of our lives. In other words, the government takes over a people that don’t use self-control.
Without any effort, immorality replaces under utilized or untaught morality. That is why the immoral from around the world are the majority of individuals now filing illegally into our nation with the permission of a corrupt government that appeases our enemies who want to come in and wreak havoc at taxpayer expense, just to add insult to injury. That is why the Obama administration was ready to take Arizona to court and put a hurting on Texas for daring to protect the border with Mexico since the immoral federal government has gone loco.
Despite all of the negative developments over the past several decades that have culminated in the worst administration in our nation’s history and could potentially harm our nation beyond repair. (After all, Obama did say he wanted to fundamentally change America.) Obviously, his interpretation of changes could not have even been enacted before the turn of the century. I believe that I have witnessed the real beginning of renewal in our country.
Many people of faith are finally becoming interested enough to learn about and care what happens to the United States of America. Remember, it was an active, brave and intelligent church that was an integral part of the fight for independence and later against slavery.
Remembering the wise words of orator, author statesman, and abolitionist Frederick Douglas: The Declaration of Independence is the ringbolt to the chain of your nation’s destiny; so, indeed, I regard it. The principles contained in that instrument are saving principles. Stand by them on all occasions, in all places, against all foes, and whatever cost. I wholeheartedly agree with Mr. Douglas. America, if you are to be great again, you must first seek to be good, for it is then you shall make better decisions and take right actions that will recalibrate our destiny from utter disaster to undeniable recovery and greatness.

Every time I hear progressive Black American politicians, community organizers, professors, or certain preachers, the complaints are always the same. “America is simply racist” “the police are out to kill us,” “black lives matter.” Oh I almost forgot! The other standby complaint, “we be held down by da man.” Unfortunately, the legions of black American government school victims are hardwired for duty in the army of progressive destruction of American society.
I find it ironic, that during the height, or low of American segregation during the early to mid 20th century, black Americans were mostly upwardly mobile. They didn’t sit around seeking to live off of government handouts or beg to be allowed into white owned or dominated establishments. That held true until the civil or bastardized rights movement. Segregation was seen as something to overcome through self-determination via black owned businesses of all stripes.

Have you noticed how America continues to decline as rapidly as she sheds our nation’s Christian Heritage? From two major directions, the assault on Christianity and even the right of Christians to freely exercise their religious liberties continues to manifest. The first major battering ram against Christianity in the United States is the government school system. For many generations, the bigoted administrators and their educator lackies have systematically weaned generation after generation away from Christian influences.

Should Americans be comfortable with the current refugee vetting process? Recently, the world was rocked by high profile Islamic terrorist attacks in far flung locales such as Paris France and San Bernardino, California. Some Americans have begun to raise serious concerns about how well individuals coming into the United States are screened. Particularly, those streaming into our republic from such unfriendly places like Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan and Northern Sudan are a justifiable cause for concern.
I have wondered if the vetting process is really any good in the present configuration, particularly in regard to checking out people who are dedicated to a religion that thrives on the deception of non-participants. Many passports certain people are using to get into our republic could and have at times been filled with false information. In fact, some Muslim refugees traipsing into our nation have been found to be carrying false information about themselves.

Despite whatever President Obama said during his state of the union address, America the beautiful is broken. Obama’s state of the union speech reminded me of his 2004 Democrat convention oratory. His address was filled with socialist idealistic imagery, with attempts at igniting a passionate and mindless following by a misled and ill-informed sea of people willing to help him shove America over the cliff and unto the ash heap of history.
There were the typical political style utilization of numerous half-truths, hyperbole and non-sequiturs to make mostly non-existent and partisan points, while forging ahead with politics as usual. To sum it up, it was a speech that became the hallmark of Barack Hussein Obama’s progressive political career. There are some who believe he has retreated to his anti-American roots as a community organizer.
The upcoming presidential election is very important. But making it the preeminent focus may prove to be fool hearty for “We the People.” Ever since I began to seriously pay attention to the American election process during my high school years, one thing has been abundantly clear. The primary and in some cases the only real focus is on the presidency. Now don’t get me wrong, the office of president of the United States of America is very important. In fact, it should be highly regarded not only by sovereign citizens, but also by those who are blessed to be elected to that office.
