Good vs. Evil in America

A lot of people today outwardly state that they believe we’re in the biblical end times.  Because of current events (the last 10 years), they are often scared into believing almost anything out of fear.  The fact that we are or are not in the ‘end times’ is obviously debatable.  However, the fact that evil is alive better than ever in recent years is difficult to argue.

Today good things are being attacked.  e.g., An American flag on a fire truck;  The ten commandments in a courthouse;  Praying at a football game;  etc.  But evil things are all too often rewarded..?!  American’s rights are being attacked every week while criminals are being favored.  ‘Show an example of that statement’, you might ask.  Well, how about California releasing thousands of felons within the last year and more are targeted to be released — while crime rockets upward.  The fact that any theft (petty or burglary under $900) is a ‘citable offense’.!!?  But you might argue, “Well, that’s California, what do you expect.”

The following chart shows the number of people pardoned by recent presidents.  Please note the trend based on party affiliation and our ‘recent’ leader’s stunning efforts.

And to think that Obama believes he is far behind on pardons!!!?  I could understand an honest man taking over a third world country and releasing political prisoners, but you will see that those he released are far from lightweight criminals.  Read the list of recent persons released by Obama.

And then of course, there are those who’s prison sentences were commuted (shortened) by Obama.  My assumption is that he believes they were unjust or ‘discriminatory’ sentences somehow..?

Also I found some quotes by Ayn Rand which were very coincidental to this article.  It would seem that the bright Russian immigrant had insider information on evil when it comes to having lived during Stalin’s reign of terror.  The following are some quotes from her of relevance.

“When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion – when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing — when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors — when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you — when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice — you may know that your society is doomed.”

“The goal of the ‘liberals’ – as it emerges from the record of the past decades – was to smuggle this country into welfare statism by means of single, concrete, specific measures, enlarging the power of the government a step at a time, never permitting these steps to be summed up into principles, never permitting their direction to be identified or the basic issue to be named. Thus, statism was to come, not by vote or by violence, but by slow rot — by a long process of evasion and epistemological corruption, leading to a fait accompli.”

I’ve wondered for some time when the American people will wake up to their impending doom. It is becoming very clear to me now that they will awake when ‘it‘ is done.  At which time of course will be far too late.  At that point, America will be doomed to decades of pain, suffering, and hard times.  Sad indeed considering it could be avoided.

Not to worry though comrades, your political leaders will take care of you…

  1. “…the fact that evil is alive better than ever in recent years is difficult to argue.” I don’t find it difficult. The evils we face are the same ones the ancients faced; poverty, ignorance, fear, a predisposition toward solving problems by violent means, famine and disease. We’ve made measurable improvements to all of them, and none have been eradicated, so there’s still work to be done.

    The “end days” concept is nonsense on the face of it, though I guess if you approach every day as if it is “the last”, you’re bound to be right eventually! Most don’t get a lot of warning about when they will die. Each day is going to be “the last day” for someone.

  2. It’s a Christian concept Mikey — clearly spelled out in the bible. However it only matters to those who are believers. Which, in this country is a shrinking breed. But so goes a country’s morals, so goes the country… e.g., the Romans

    1. Speaking as a believer, just not an evangelical, my refutation of the last days-rapture fans would be Mark 13:32 / Matthew 24:36.

      I’m more in agreement with you about parallels between the current USA and the Roman Empire however. All earthly empires must pass.

      1. Mikey,

        No one suggested that the ‘exact’ time is known, but merely that we are in the ‘beginning’ of the end days. In order to reach what the period of tribulation that the bible describes, we must worsen our situation significantly over time in order to reach that horrible time in the future. I doubt it will happen over night. Yes, evil has existed for hundreds of years. But “I” believe that we will see unprecedented evil in our future. Not necessarily decades from now, but in ‘our’ time. Not when our grandkids are grown.
