The Three Point Attack

           If I remember my facts right, Saudi Arabia has no income tax and free health care.  Their secret is oil.  Do our politicians have a secret also?  Since we seem to have much more oil than the Saudi’s, why aren’t we going after it?  Either those in power have a reason not to, or they are just plain stupid.  “Life is tough—it’s even tougher when you’re stupid.”[1]

          “Intelligence and information are not hereditary.  The son of a philosopher may be an ignoramus.  The wisest men must teach their children the simplest elements of knowledge, or allow them to grow up in ignorance of all that they themselves have learned.”[2]  Our children are being brainwashed in today’s school system.  Between the progressive indoctrination and the revisionist history, they are being taught that their parents did it wrong and that it’s their job to correct things.  From at least the sixties, until today, the perversion of the educational system has taken place. Parents have become less and less involved in their children’s schools, in my opinion, due to misplaced trust.   The teachers that taught us were trustworthy because they had been taught under the pre sixties system.   This is not to say that all teachers are like this.  On the contrary, there are many good and dedicated teachers.  However, there are enough that, along with the teacher’s unions and progressive administrators, our children and grandchildren are truly at risk. “The goal of a higher learning institution is to make a boy as much unlike his father as possible.”[3]

   “Young adults”[4] have a right to listen and learn from their elders.  Those from twenty to their forties have the right to work hard and raise their families.  Once this has been accomplished, it could be said that they have earned their voice by having paid their dues.  Those who have been there and done that are the elders that have earned their right to the respect of those who follow.  You don’t get respect without having “made you bones”.[5]

For some time now, those that have been delegated, by us, to manage our nation, have, to say the least, run amuck.  Their two main areas of attack seem to be in their attempts to bankrupt the nation and remove God from all facets of our lives.  The first nation on earth to be set up as a Christian nation resulted in the greatest nation in history. “Cathamethapiscabapterian”[6] is the basis of the religion of our founding.  This was the diverse Christian foundation of our nation.    Those we have elected have chosen to ignore the core principals on which we were founded, in order to fundamentally change the direction of our nation.  “The borrower is a slave to the lender, and the debtor to the creditor.”[7]  The Bible says basically the same thing.  Let’s see, it was said by one of our founding fathers and by the Father of our founding.  Perhaps we should pay attention!  Perhaps it is our fault that this has happened.  We didn’t pay enough attention to whom we were electing and what their basic beliefs were.  Some of them lied, and we believed them.  We didn’t research some of them enough to know what they stood for.  Shame on us! 

“It is the habit of skeptics to ignore all that has been settled and established in Christianity; and this because, as a rule, skeptical men are untaught and uninformed concerning the facts and truths which pertain to the Christian religion.  It is a subject they have never studied, and concerning which they have never been properly instructed.  They may have gone to church as a matter of form, and have heard about the gospel in a general and traditional way, but they have never examined and weighed the evidences in the case.  No man is fit to confute a doctrine which he is too indifferent to examine or comprehend.  But it would be hard to find many skeptical writers or speakers who have ever had even a fair look at the opposite side of the question, to say nothing of a practical experience of the gospel of salvation, without which all theories are but shells and husks. … Of course there is no disputing about taste; and if a man chooses to put away his history, his heritage, and his hopes, as a son and creature of Almighty God; and trace his genealogy to the monkey, the mollusk, the moner, and the mud, we must respect his rights, and allow him to exercise his preferences; but when he insists that we shall also trace our genealogic line through ancestral apes and patriarchal pollywogs, we respectfully decline the honor.  We prefer to look higher; and as there is still a little uncertainty among scientific men on the point, we propose to give ourselves the benefit of the doubt, and still look up to a Heavenly Father, instead of down to a little dot of mud-spawned moner, as the source of our existence….If such men could turn God out of His own world, they would feel quite at liberty to do as they liked.  And if, instead of believing that they are creatures of God, and so are amenable to His righteous and wholesome control, they can convince themselves that they are simply descended from some race of obscene and dirty little brutes, what is there to hinder them from imitating their ancestors to their hearts content? ”[8] 

“With equal pleasure I have as often taken notice that Providence has been pleased to give this one connected country to one united people--a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs, and who, by their joint counsels, arms, and efforts, fighting side by side throughout a long and bloody war, have nobly established general liberty and independence.

This country and this people seem to have been made for each other, and it appears as if it was the design of Providence…”[9]  It appears to me that we have lost this feeling of cohesion that the founding fathers felt and that those immigrants following them felt as they wanted to become Americans.  Keep in mind;  “what God has joined together, let no man put asunder”.[10]

Unlike our forefathers, today’s progressive movement seems to hold with the philosophy that the ends justify the means.  This has been espoused by some in the influential position of having the ear of the present administration such as Andy Stern, President of the SEIU, who says that if he can’t get his way using the power of persuasion, he will use the persuasion of power.  “This is one of those truths which, to a correct and unprejudiced mind, carries its own evidence along with it; and may be obscured, but cannot be made plainer by argument or reasoning. It rests upon axioms as simple as they are universal; the MEANS ought to be proportioned to the END; the persons, from whose agency the attainment of any END is expected, ought to possess the MEANS by which it is to be attained.”[11]   In other words, you can’t do as you darn well please simply because you desire a result of your liking.  Be warned, you are not paranoid if someone really is after you.  These progressives are exuberant true believers.  Progressivism is their religion and they want to proselytize you and your children. The green movement is one of their chief denominations.  "If we ever forget that we're ‘One Nation Under God’, then we will be a nation gone under."[12] Through finances, education and elimination of faith the progressives are gaining control of our lives.  Perhaps there is still time to save ourselves and our country.  Recognizing these problems is the first step.  Avoiding our being a part of these problems is the most important step.  Resist in any way you are able!
