We are losing our freedom, our possessions, and our honor. We are beginning to become "the huddled masses, yearning to breathe free" and "the tired and poor." The tipping point has been reached.
Over half of us believe we are beneficiaries of government spending. Our politicians long ago learned they can continue their lucrative career by promising constituents more than their opponents promise them. We are a nation in serious decline. I recommend the books "Lessons of History" by Will and Ariel Durant and "The Light and the Glory" by Peter Marshall Jr. and David Manuel. Not that the inertia introduced by the socialist ideology, introduced by the Roosevelts, Wilson, and the like, can be reversed, but rational people need to know how we got where we are. Uncontrolled taxing, spending, and crime rates are only symptoms.
If you are part of the church, you can look forward to the rapture. If you are not, you best hunker down. The piper is about to be paid.
