What Will It Take To Make Some Americans Wake Up? |

I sometimes wonder how far some Americans are going to stick their heads in the sand and pretend that the policies liberals are putting in place will actually bring the American economy back to prosperity. I wonder if some people even really care about what we have already done to the generations to follow, what kind of future they will have, burdened with the debt being left to them.

I can’t help but ponder why people are still gullible enough to totally blame the ruinous state of the economy on George W. Bush after three and a half years of Obama’s total and abject fiscal failure even after holding power over the White House and both houses of Congress for two full years.

It’s a mystery to me why the American public believes or respects anything Harry Reid ever says after his outrageous remark about the surge not working while we still had military in the field executing it, and knowing that his statement was hurtful to America and our military, simply putting his petulant political interests ahead of his country and the people who protect him from being murdered in his bed by terrorists.

How can anybody ever again take seriously the inane remarks of a congresswoman who says they have to pass a bill to find out what’s in it?

How long will it take America to recognize the folly of turning down desperately needed oil from our best friends in the world just north of our continental border and sending billions of dollars to Brazil for oil exploration, telling them we want to be their best customer?

How long will it take for the citizens of this nation to grasp the fact that cutting back our military is tantamount to national suicide, and that the incredible scientific and technological advances made as a benefit of the space program will be no more?

How about a president who totally took the word “reform” out of welfare and whose policies have lead to a larger number of the workforce applying for disability than for jobs?

How long will the citizens of America support a media that does not represent their values, morals, ideals or even their tastes?

Will we continue turn a blind eye to the destructive and dehumanizing effect violent video games have on impressionable youth who vicariously kills dozens of people before he even goes to school in the morning?

Will we continue to allow an educational system that is based more on political power than learning, and that turns out semi-literate graduates who can repeat the lyrics to the latest hip-hop hit – but couldn’t name the capitals of the 50 states if their lives depended on it?

I sometimes fear that America has gone past the point of no return, that we’ve developed a national “play now, pay later” mentality, that too many people have decided that living off the dole is better than working and believe that morals should change with the times and “if it feels good, do it ” should set the bar.

I sometimes fear that the work ethic is being conditioned out of America, that too many people are starting to look at the federal government for all their needs and all their guidance, swallowing whole whatever the propaganda du jour happens to be.

It’s a pretty depressing thought.

Then I ride through the heartland and see a farmer working in the dark with his tractor lights on trying to get the hay baled before the coming rain, or glance at a highway paving crew sweating it out in the 100-degree weather, or notice the guys manhandling the big rigs across the highways of America.

When I look into the fresh faces and clear eyes of the young ladies who brought me the watermelon they were so proud of at the county fair we played the other night, or pass a churchyard filled with Sunday morning worshippers, I know that the battle may be going badly, but the war is still up for grabs.

“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 sins and will heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, and for our county.

God Bless America
