A very large portion of the people in our country are angry, fed up, and distrust their government — for good reason. They’ve been fed ‘bs’ for decades and are ready to ‘act out’ if something positive isn’t done soon. And who can blame them. But…
The voting (or not) citizens of this country are the ones responsible for those in Washington of which they complain about — for example our current president. It is the useful idiots of America who do not think with any depth that have put us in this position. If that angers you, welcome to my world. Far too many people don’t care, are too lazy, too ignorant, or just plain don’t give a damn what happens — as long as they get their ‘stuff’.
Having become a socialist country (to a large extent) we are getting what we asked for — a crap sandwich. No matter what you put on the outside, the inside is still crap. And that is where we are today. For years we’ve been voting for the ‘lesser of two evils’. Well, that used to be just a phrase — now it is a fact.
No matter how you cut it, we are in big trouble. Either way we will most likely be led down a very dark road… for a long time. We are at the point in chess where someone is about to say, “Checkmate!”. One bad decision after another has brought us here and we’re about to step off a cliff. A cliff leading to hardship and sacrifice.
When voting this November people should ask themselves, “If I were standing before God and he asked me why I voted for ‘that’ person, what would I say?”. I don’t think because he/she is ‘the lesser of two evils’ would be an acceptable answer. If the people of this country voted ‘their values’ regardless of who was put up for president, I seriously doubt we’d be where we are today. And that goes for every congressman, senator, or government official.
If you listened to Trump’s acceptance speech and really ‘read between the lines’ (i.e., interpreted what he was really saying), it should scare the hell of you. Obviously I am sharing my view which no one needs to agree with, but I see the man as a dangerous person. He shares traits very similar to many people in history who turned out to be horrible and caused death and hardship. Hopefully I’m wrong..?
But more importantly, we could potentially be ‘done for’ in very short order, regardless. Some would say that I am being too melodramatic. However, consider why the Roman Empire failed. Read the following list of reasons and then ask yourself, have we completed any of these steps?
Five reasons for the fall of the Roman Empire.
- First: Rapid increase of divorce, with the undermining of the sanctity of the home, which is the basis of society.
- Second: Higher and higher taxes; the spending of money for bread and celebrations.
- Third: The mad craze for pleasure, sports becoming every year more exciting and more brutal.
- Fourth: The building of gigantic armaments, when the real enemy was within; the decadence of the people.
- Fifth: The decay of religion; faith fading into mere form, losing touch with life, and becoming impotent to guide it.

Now consider these verses in the bible.
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.” (Pro 14:34)
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord…” (Psa 33:12)
“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.” (Gal 6:7)
We have lost our way and it has become obvious. When intelligent people start looking at evil answers as potential realistic solutions to our problems, we have lost our way — and our ‘compass’ (God). Everything is now relative and nothing is sacred. I’m afraid we’re about to learn a very costly lesson…?
