Politics 2020: My views – day 2

29 Oct

Note: I respect other people’s opinions expressed on their own page.  Please, don’t use my public page to express your views.  As a matter of common courtesy, a private FB Message works well.  I will not publicly debate anyone.  I delete, block or unfriend contrary or oppositional comments.


So if the personalities… or even the intellectual savvy of the two candidates are not the primary issues at stake, then what is?  As I see it, the issues aren’t even the difference in policies of fiscal, infrastructure or governmental administrative matters.  The issues at hand are starkly contrasting and diametrically opposing ‘worldviews’ on many fronts.  In my opinion here are a few:

1. God OR no God
2. Basic immutable moralities OR tolerance of ‘anything’

3. Respect for human dignity OR dispensable ‘tissue’
4. National identity VS global community mentality
5. Capitalism/individual entrepreneurship VS nanny state socialism/communism
6. Constitutional originalism VS in flux reinterpretation
7. Empower people VS government intrusion
and there are many other contrasting differences…..

Each contrast highlights deeply fundamental and widely diverging life-altering views!!!  Ask yourself, “Which ones do I want for my grandchildren?”

Can you find your party’s platform in these opposing world views?  Although both parties fail miserably in many of its practices, it should be fairly easy to identify.  Now hypothetically extrapolate out from where we are currently, if we continue in a trajectory in these opposing directions, where will we be in 10 years… in 50 years?  Is that the country and society that you dreamed of creating for your family’s future generations?

So let’s address just one of the fundamentals; God OR no God.  What were the stated intentions of the Founders of our Nation?  Was it not, for freedom of worship, among other things?  Disregarding a few isolated quotes to the contrary, most of our early American forefathers were religious and God-fearing men and they made laws that reflected the decency and order of a God-fearing nation.

In this last decade, one party brazenly removed the mention of God from their party platform.  One of New York Post’s headlines bluntly states, “Democrats still haven’t faced their God problem.”  When you excise God out of your party and platform under the guise of “separation of church and state”, then you have nothing to lean on, except yourself… nothing to measure against, except yourself… nothing to call upon in trouble, except yourself… and no wholesome standards with which to create laws or build a society, except yourself.  Has anyone ever found that over time their desires have a tendency to affect their values or standards?  Of course, we have!  So, without an external influence to curb those unbridled internal desires, where will one’s values and standards end up?  For our own national survival, we must have the God-factor to establish immutable boundaries.

So, what will it take to stop the downward suction into lawlessness?

Soberingly, we are facing a mortal battle over the identity and soul of our nation.  Yes, the downward trend has been going on for decades.  We’ve been like the proverbial frog in the pot of boiling water… it heated so slowly that the frog didn’t recognize its soon demise.  Without debate, our morals as a nation have plummeted and our courageous soul to stand for what’s right, has crumbled.  In my mind there is no question, the legislations which canceled God out of the public sector have led to the devolving of morals and ever-increasing willingness to tolerate lawlessness… yes, we as a society, have created our own mess.

Here’s a quote from one of America’s Founding Fathers, John Adams;

“ … we have no government, armed with power, capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and religion.  Avarice, ambition, revenge and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net.  Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.  It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

You see, our forefathers knew that if the people didn’t fear and serve God, then no decent law would be sufficient to govern a resulting lawless people.  History says, a society without a God-compass, will gravitate toward lawlessness, and from that culture, some lawless dictator will assert his iron fist.  This doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see… with 20/20 vision we can review the rise and fall of nations.

G. Edward Griffin April 3, 1969, Communist Smear Tactics, Communist Revolution in America

It’s not too late to stop the tide! It’s still within our power, with God’s help, to halt the degradation of America’s moral courage and thus, save a nation and the heart of her people.  We must muster our soul… we must rally an army of voters to do what is humanly possible to prevent our progeny from living under the dehumanizing of a socialist or communistic tyranny.

This 8 min video was filmed over 51 years ago… notice the relevances to today.  You may say that this is a reckless incitement of people’s emotions.  Well, although some of the things cited herein are a little over the top, it is incredibly sobering, and should be shocking, that some of these things have already happened and are being unashamedly perpetrated on our American culture, even as we speak.  Now, consider the publicly published mindsets of the current atheistic financial backers… and the public figures who endorse their subversive plans.  The picture gets more than clear!  Hello, America!!!!

And that, my friends, highlights ONLY ONE of the above 7 contrasts of ‘world views’.  We must choose wisely!

It’s not too late.  We can do this!  May God help us!

    Paul and I are definitely with you on this. I don’t know how it can be seen otherwise, and I find it very upsetting that so many we know are on the other side. Thanks for modeling how to handle differences.
