What is wrong with America Today?
America is dying. Yes it is. The signs of death here in the modern American state are not manifest in huge death tolls of its citizens, or in an armed invasion by a hostile nation. The death of America is not quantifiable in those terms. Yet, the death of the American republic has already largely been accomplished. Yet most people would laugh at such an assertion. America was, and still is in many ways, the envy of the world. It's riches and power and basic sense of fairness are being replaced with greed, fraud and a basic sense of power drunkenness. It's political system, while in comparison with most of the rest of the world is still fairly free of serious corruption, is quickly sliding in the wrong direction. Corrupt politicians get preferential treatment in the media while honest ones are lambasted for being "populist" and "demagogues". The scandals of police setting up innocent citizens, from New York to Los Angels as well as officers of the Law purchasing or stealing and then selling drugs is becoming disturbingly commonplace. The legal system struggles to protect it's non existent credibility and the media, owned and operated by the wealthiest interests in America, have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo. These interests have decided that, at least at the federal level, campaign finance laws will be flouted. Violators break the law without the mainstream media asking the pointed questions, either showing their profound ignorance or complicity. Pundits then blandly ask why are people so cynical about politics.
The cultural war is also on in America. The old ethics of honest hard work, integrity and honor have been replaced with greed, perjury, violence and instant gratification. This can be seen from the way Hollywood, and the entertainment industry in general, have had a field day at propagating a new morality of 'self first', and instant financial and sexual gratification as the new paths to personal fulfillment and happiness. God is out and Christ has been remolded into a homosexual loving pansy that wants to give you the "good" life. These interests blaspheme the name of God and Christ with their twisted characterizations him, Church and State alike are guilty of this most heinous sin.
This was not what the nation was founded on, and it is certainly not what made it great. The problem is not a simple one to solve. Yet the remnant of God is certainly beginning to make a stand, against abortion, drug abuse the general acceptance of homosexuality Judicial corruption and the likes. Yet the Nation as whole seems to want to mock and laugh God's People. This is a very unfortunate and sad state of affairs as those who know something about American culture and history are being drowned out by those who wish desperately to change both. This has been the modus operandi throughout history. The destruction of a vibrant moral civilization is not accomplished by accident. What is happening in the US today is far from an accidental death. The poisoner is killing the patient with those very things that have destroyed so many societies in the past. The biggest problem is the apathy shown by the American people. It is allowing destructive forces to gain a foothold in the nation.
If America wants to survive as a free nation, this apathy must be done away with. It is allowing the most vile forms of treason transpiring right now in America to go unchecked. The most serious acts of treason are being committed now in America and absolutely no outcry from the citizens ensues. Repeatedly the American People hear of scandals regarding America's most important nuclear secrets being "stolen" by foreign agents. Laptops and hard drives with America's most sensitive information is being stolen by our enemies. Yet, the American people have no clue that they are being sold out. Like the African American Slaves of old they are on the auction block, our leaders are selling our security and secrets to the highest bidder, and ensuring no one goes to jail in any subsequent investigations. This treason is going unchecked in the Congress, the Courts and by the American People. It is as though America has been given a collective sedative to fall asleep, saying "freedom and wealth is my right and no power on earth can take it from me". This form of idiocy is going to destroy the nation. Our military forces are in shambles and our security has been seriously compromised. Yet no one cries out, or even asks pertinent questions. This is quite clearly and thoroughly insane. This nation has enemies, more and more as each day passes. Yet it fails to dawn on Americans that what is going on here is quite probably (not simply possibly), high treason facilitated by the those in the highest levels of the American Government…and America slumbers.
America has been under the protection and blessing of God. We have been blessed to become the wealthiest and most powerful nation on Earth. Our people have been by and large free and justice has not taken a back seat to expedience, at least until now. From WACO to the Elian Case, Thugs with guns break down doors, aim their guns at law abiding citizens, with little or no provocation. In the Elian case, this was done in direct defiance of a federal court order.
What does it take to recognize we are living in a tyranny? Most Germans would have balked at the idea that they lived in a tyranny during the reign of Hitler; he also had his SS storm troopers bash down the doors of the citizens and trample on the constitution. Most people figured that as long as it didn't happen to their families, they weren't really living in a tyranny. It was OK if only "a few Jews" got their heads bashed in and went to concentration camps. This is the mentality of, just about every American living today. These types of things are happening now, here in the US and no one says or does anything, "who cares if the Government gasses and burns to death children, "as long as it's not my child…" the mentally impaired reasoning goes.
Ignorance coupled with wealth has perverted this nation. It will destroy it. Just like Rome, Napoleon's empire, the USSR, and a myriad of other "indestructible" empires, America will die its death. Indeed, the putrid aroma of death can already be smelled, if one takes his or her eyes off the stock market (manipulations) for a moment or two. The stench of death is only a wisp right now, not an over powering smell.
What can be done to save this nation? Nothing.
If God decides that he will be gracious to us and allow us to correct our mistakes, then perhaps, if we decide to do what is right, rather than that which simply makes us money or brings us illicit pleasure, we as a nation may have a chance at salvaging something of our once greatness. But the Almighty, like a doctor who has seen it time and time again, has seen the symptoms of this plague. He knows the ultimate fate of the patient, and knows of the patient's psychological inability to deal with the bad news. He has seen it all before, many, many times. He tells the patient what he needs to get well. But like a smoker diagnosed with terminal lung cancer but continues to smoke, the doctor knows that death is a matter of months, perhaps weeks away. America also has had its diagnoses, and the very things that are killing it, are the things she refuses to renounce. She simply indulges in them with greater determination and lust. "I cannot die" she says foolishly… "I am America!"
Yes, the doctor has heard similar boasts before, he even visits the grave sites of other rebellious patients from time to time, he simply shakes his head, closes his medicine bag and moves on to where the plague will strike next.
