One can hardly avoid the news pertaining to the loss of liberty. We hear about it on the radio, we see it on the news, and we can read about it in the newspaper. Someone is lamenting about the over-reach of the government, and the plundering of the Constitution of the United states of America, and their interference into our daily lives, and needless to say, (I am one of these Americans that would love to stand up and say) “ Enough”.
It is true that we have seen many changes, and I’m going to even try to list them all, for we know them, but what I really wish to do by writing this article is to bring to our attention the fact that we still have a choice, and that we still have in tact many of the basic privileges spelled out in our constitution. Yes we have lost some, and we may loose many more, but at the present, we may be at the cross-roads of loosing them all.
America was founded on the premise of choosing, the framers realized that to be a republic and a free nation the people must be given the right to decide their own destination, and from these freedoms a great and noble nation was born, and contrary to what we see and feel on a daily basic, America is still a great and noble nation.
But my question is this; will we give this nation and the freedom that we enjoy over to those that have no interest or loyalty toward the American way of life?
Our Creator from the very beginning felt it very important that men, and women have their free agency, to decide, to map out their own course whether it be to follow him, or to follow the creature of darkness, sadly many of them choose the latter. This choice is still in effect, and at this time we Americans are right in the middle of a great decision, for instance, “fight for our freedom, are loose it to those that are intent on taking it from us”.
When I think of choice this scripture always comes in mind, it is from the Book of Joshua, and I quote..Joshua: 24-14-15…”Now therefore fear the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt: and serve ye the Lord……And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”.
Surely the people were given a choice, and after considering their options, the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the Lord, to serve other gods.” Joshua; 24-16
There is a very powerful force in the world today that is intent on robbing all Americans of their god given right to choose. Not only Americans, but all men and women and children wherever freedom is enjoyed, and where the people have the right to discover truth for themselves.
They are not able to cross our borders with their weapons and take the country by force, but make no mistake, they are intent on bringing this country to our knees, and forcing upon every man woman and child their (religion), they take upon themselves this radical goal believing it is their god given purpose, and if this should ever happen the world would decline in to a darkness that is un-descramble, and the people would be as slaves to their goulash and perverted way of life.
Their weapon is terror, and out of their mouth comes lies, promising one thing and doing another, they also believe this to be a part of their duty, lie if it brings on the desired results.
They have tried terror, and they will try terror again, but they know that terror will never accomplish the results that they desire, they realize that they can’t come in the front door, so, like any thief, they try to find America asleep then they will slip in another way.
How can they slip in another way? By quietly moving into our neighbor and assimilating into our society seeming so innocent and peace loving, and at the same time recruiting even more and more members that will take up their dastardly fight against freedom, and the right to choose.
But their greatest move into our lives is through the government. Their goal will began at the local level, then as time progresses they will move in a more state wide campaign, and them on to the US government.
How can this happen you ask? It is already happening as we sleep, slowly by surely their plan is working, and we Americans are letting our freedom slip away, little by little, inch by inch, just enough that we don’t see it day by day.
This is how evil has always worked its way into the lives of people that just want to live in peace, and enjoy the freedoms that God has given them, and it can come upon them in an instant especially those that are unaware of the deceitful and lying ways of those that wish them harm.
But as long as America stands tall, and recognizes this enemy as for what it is, there is a chance that someday we will see victory over this enemy, and freedom will once again be restored to all Americans, and that we can once again walk our street without fear, and that our children can enjoy just being children, and learning in a safe and secure school.
This war that we are in at the moment will be a long and protracted war, and it is one that we will (Have to Win).
And this is the day of choosing, do we awake from our slumber or do we just set by as if everything will just go away.
Yes the framers of our constitution went to great lengths to insure our freedom, but they realized that freedom without responsibility is fruitless.
And those that wish us harm are worming their way into our live under the guise of our constitution.
Yes I believe in the freedom for everyone, but unless that take responsibility and live by our laws, they have forfeited their rights as Americans.
We as Americans must take the fight to those that wish us harm, and it just may be our government.
But thank God, we have elections, and we have the right to choose, and as we found out in 2008 and 2012, we sometimes have to live with our decisions.
