In all of this, one thing separates us from you. We have hope–true hope. Our hope is in God. Your plans may ultimately succeed, and you will believe you have the victory, but it will be a false victory, temporal and short-lived. Remember, the Japanese though they had scored a great victory at Pearl Harbor.
There are many–too many–out there who can’t seem to find anything good to say about America. But maybe, just maybe, under the right tutelage, they may join their fellow Americans in resolve to preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, that refuses to sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness, that we will renounce the dark path and set ourselves to the hard but worthy task of remaining that shining city upon a hill.
The best of the best at Dakota Voice last week, including?: ‘Of course, Health Reform Bill is socialism’: Sharpton; ACLU: Police Should Apologize for Doing Their Job; Apocalypse Near?; Stupak: Traded 30 Years for 30 Pieces of Silver; Night of the Living Obama Zombies; Sen. Howie Seeks to Reintroduce South Dakota Health Care Freedom Act; Correcting the Record on ‘Social Justice’; and more!
Howard Dean recently admitted on CNBC that ObamaCare is wealth redistribution. Dean discusses the “right balance” between income earners (as it if were somehow legitimately the role of government to decide how much people have–MARXISM) and then says, “…When it gets out of whack as it did in the ’20s and it has now, you need to do some redistribution. This is a form of redistribution.” How is it that adult Americans can see it as legitimate for government to take by force the property of one person and give it to another who has not earned it.
In our modern age of the “nanny state,” the sacrifice of individual freedoms (and your money) is ultimately “for your own good.” This was never more true than when the government health care bill passed last week. The student of the Bible cannot help but draw parallels between our situation and that of the Israelites as they went into Babylonian captivity.
