To say that America is more deeply divided now than at any time since the Civil War is to state the commonly known and the obvious. But to believe that the we are divided purely along a line of conflicting political ideologies is like running a marathon race, only to stop and sit down five feet from the finish line, forsaking the prize.
Barack Obama said that he wanted to “fundamentally transform America.” He set out on his apology tour of European and Arab nations, condemning the American people. His reckless policies doubled the national debt and gutted the military. His administration violated immigration and firearms laws and abused the I.R.S. to stonewall political opposition. He incited racism, condemned law enforcement and promoted perversity. For these, Democrats called him a great president.
Donald Trump promised to make America great again. The stock market soared; thousands of jobs were saved and tens of thousands of new ones were created before he ever took office. The Trump administration defeated ISIS, secured the border and halted the Islamic invasion known as the refugee resettlement program. Working with Congress, he is rebuilding the armed forces and regularly honors the righteous and selfless work of police, border patrol agents and the military. For this, liberals claim that he is destroying the nation.
No longer can it be said that Democrats “Dream things that never were and ask, ‘Why not?’” Instead, they see things that are not and declare that they are; they see things that are and say that they are not. These are not the qualities of rational people.
America is becoming an increasingly dangerous and hostile place to live. One reason for this is that nearly half of us—the loud, obnoxious and belligerent half—have been deceived into believing that everything they see and hear is exactly backward from reality. They live in a negative world where up is down, truth is a lie, wrong is right and perception is reality.
These poor pathetic souls are convinced that enforcement of law is unjust, border security is inherent bigotry and any restriction of sexual behavior is an affront to freedom. If the American Psychiatric Association was a legitimate organization of objective professionals, it would have to conclude that a large segment of America’s population has gone berserk.
Anarchy will be our common future if people fail to oppose the insane godless liberal world view. The President of the United States cannot change the fabric of our culture. Only the people can. Barack Obama’s many illegitimate executive orders were powerless to change who and what we are, and the 2016 presidential election proved that.
When our personal lives crash and burn, it’s helpful to retrace our steps to pinpoint the location of the error. The same honest examination can help correct the path of a nation. Liberals have sold the American people a great number of lies. Evolution, climate change, homosexual determinism and gender choice are just a few of these. But their biggest lie is the one they tell themselves—that there will be no consequence to their sin.
Proverbs 28:5 illustrates the state of our culture and the reason for conflict saying, “They that forsake the law praise the wicked; but such as keep the law contend with them.” Defiant wickedness brought America to this point. History declares that only a return to righteousness and faith in God can set us aright.
The good news that will not be reported by our media, is that the negative reality of liberalism has become so bizarre and absurdly counter-American that it has made the Democrat party a parody of a political movement. At last, we may finally be able to dispense with the serial failures of unbridled liberalism.
Christian and Patriot are not passive occupations. Each demands bold action and sacrifice of personal comfort for the promise of greater rewards to come. Barack Obama’s legacy of failure has already been written. The legacy of this generation is being written now. May we be worthy of a good report.
