Let his days be few; and let another take his office.
– Psalm 109:8
What would you say represents the single greatest threat to the continuation of freedom and prosperity in the United States of America?
There are many candidates.
I would say, for instance, that if America continues to turn its back on God, we don’t have much time left.
I would say, for instance, that if America continues to conduct itself in immoral and unrighteous ways, we don’t have much time left.
I would say, for instance, that if America continues to behave lawlessly, even ignoring its own Constitution, we don’t have much time left.
Yet, as important as these generalizations are, they are just that – broad, sweeping principles.
But what raises the question in my mind, and, I suspect, the minds of many other Americans today, are some very specific actions that seem to lead nowhere except the destruction of America’s liberty and economic well-being.
Shortly, it appears, the federal government will take over the most personal decisions any American could ever make – decisions that can mean the difference between life and death, sickness and health.
The federal government already has established for itself the illegitimate authority over schooling in America – pouring billions into failed state institutions answerable mainly to unionized teachers and designed to produce a dependent class of “workers” and ill-informed social agitators rather than self-governing, educated young people.
The federal government has signed on lock, stock and barrel to the myth of “catastrophic climate change” in a bid to usurp more wealth and power for itself in the name of “saving the planet.”
The federal government’s main job these days is redistributing wealth – not just from the rich to the poor, as it once did to no good effect – but now in much bigger sums from the middle-class to the superrich in the form of corporate bailouts.
For decades, we could at least count on the federal government to do one thing right – defend the country and its citizens. But no longer. The government doesn’t even consider itself accountable to American citizens. Its constituents are now anyone living in the country – legally or illegally. We’re all “citizens of the world,” they tell us. We all need to be accountable to global governance. Even the once vaunted U.S. military has succumbed to political correctness and seems unable and ill-equipped to defend itself from enemies infiltrating it within our own borders.
Many of us tend to think of ourselves as “victims” of a political system gone mad. But they say you get the kind of government you deserve – and there is a certain truth to that statement.
Americans are victims of self-inflicted wounds. We’re victims of laziness and slothfulness. We’re victims of apathy and stupidity. And we’re victims of our own immoral and sinful lifestyles.
I hate to say it, but American leadership today represents a judgment on the people. Legitimately or illegitimately, Barack Obama was elected president of the United States. Nancy Pelosi was made speaker of the House as a direct result of a national election. Harry Reid was named Senate majority leader as a direct result of a national election.
Clearly these people have to go if we are to reverse course and maintain America as a free and prosperous nation.
How do we achieve that goal?
Must we wait until 2010 to begin that process?
It’s time for action right now.
I wrote a book years ago anticipating just where America would be in 2009. It was called “Taking America Back: A Radical Plan to Revive Freedom, Morality and Justice.” The bad news is that, to date, only about 75,000 Americans have read it. The good news is that most of those have purchased it in the last two years – as they were finally awakened to the reality of the predictions I made in that book.
Yes, Americans are waking up. And that’s good.
But we don’t have much time left.
We don’t have much freedom left.
We don’t have much wealth left.
So get busy. Get active. Stay focused. Get out into the streets like you have been doing. It is inspiring. Get ready for a political revolution in 2010. I believe it is coming. It’s time to prepare and organize – right now.
Obama must go. Pelosi must go. Reid must go. We need to turn the Congress upside down and inside out.
But there’s something else we can and must do right now.
It’s a promise.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
– 2 Chronicles 7:14
