Are You Listening?
It’s just a little over a month until the chance to vote for our next President arrives. Americans cannot afford to simply “go with the flow” and assume that everything will magically turn out all right.
Are you chanting, “La La, La La” with your firmly placed fingers in your ears?
Is your response to responsible media reporting (as if that’s not an oxymoron) to say, “I can’t hear you, I have a banana stuck in my ear.
Maybe your preferred avoidance method is one identified by the large flightless bird, called an ostrich—you have your head stuck in the sand so you may (safely?) ignore the confusion and “noise” of today’s complex and confusing world.
Any of the above methods will ensure the demise of our nation.
Are you a conservative Christian believer who says, “I am just trusting God to sort it out. After all He has things under control, doesn’t He?”
Maybe you are an average American, living in “fat, dumb, and happy land” who feels (instead of applying the brains God gave you) that you don’t have a clue, so you plan to not use your freedom to engage in the political process by voting.
Have you taken the time to see the excellent documentary, 2016: Obama’s America, by Dinesh D’Souza at your local theatre?
Do you regularly read media articles from a variety of sources, both national and international or do you choose to limit your political input to that from the liberal media?
While some international media sources are considered liberal, at least they have not totally sold out to the Progressive machine which is seeing its insidious agenda finally reaching a climax and goals they so long have striven for are becoming real.
Read widely. Notice that the liberal American media has substantially sold out to the liberal, progressive movement and is no longer the unbiased counterpoint to rampant political rhetoric it once claimed to be.
The Economist, BBC News, Ynet Daily, Al Jezeera, World Net Daily and others provide a counterpoint to the reporting of MSNBC, CNN, the New York Times, and the Washington Post.
The train of freedom is being derailed and is in danger of falling to its final resting place in John Bunyan’s “slough of despond.”
For the simple survival of an independent and free United States, voting citizens can no longer afford to remain complacent. Lies are being told; promised transparency in politics is curiously absent and cover-ups are being perpetrated, obfuscating the truth.
American citizens—Pray and then vote your conscience as God leads!
2nd Chronicles 7:14 offers a pattern for our prayers:
“if my people, who are called by my name,
· will 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.”
God help us all! God bless America!
