My Generation Ruined America

Barb Wire

It was a pretty nice United States of America that my father’s generation handed us: stable, strong, prosperous, greatest country in the world. But my generation, my peers, the damned fools who went to college in the 1960s–we’ve wrecked it.

What have we done?

We are governed by the slimiest crew of cretins that ever crawled out from under a rock, and “educated” by life-forms even lower on the scale. Not that we deserve much better. We are thoroughly convinced that there are inalienable “rights” to practice sodomy, loot grocery stores, use the bathroom reserved for the opposite sex, and to stretch out one’s hand to receive money that someone else worked for while the recipient sat around playing video games and getting high.

How did we come to this? It happened right under our noses, in the light of day; and yet I can’t tell you how it happened, and I’ve never met anyone who can. All I can tell you is that this most definitely is not the America I was born and raised in. I don’t know what it is. A freak show, I suppose.

For the sake of ten just men, God would have spared Sodom. How many do we have to come up with?

Pray, pray, and pray some more. God hears us. If we can’t see what He’s doing about any of this mess, then it must be that He’s working in a way we cannot see.

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1). Go to bed in faith, rise up in faith, walk through the day in faith. Wait upon the Lord; for the judge of all the earth shall always do right.
