We are living in a world where many traditional values are being tossed out the window. Turning just a few things upside down can result in something that is not very pretty. We need to turn those important functions right side up again and keep them that way. We are the only country to be founded on Christian principles and values. A large part of our world is returning to the Christian base we were founded on, (huge numbers even in countries where it is prohibited) but many in our country are abandoning the very things that made us great. Our current leadership's statist leanings have failed everywhere they have been tried. Revisionists with agendas that remove God from the equation would have us believe we are ignorant dupes blindly following a dead religion. They just can't make their argument stick in spite of their efforts to wrest the children from the ideals taught by Christian parents. They have pushed their "Science is Everything" agenda of re-indoctrination into our public schools and major universities using the support of the very people they are trying to undermine. Science is important, but in the end we are still left with the unanswered questions that scream creation by design and not by accident. Meanwhile, here in the greatest country on the face of the Earth, we are wallowing in the insipid nothingness of blind humanism. We should act responsibly toward our environment but the truth is very little we do impacts it significantly. We should strive for peace with everyone, but the truth is despots don't respond to peace. We should treat everyone fairly, but the truth is there will always be those who don't. We must operate with the guidance provided by God our creator and understand that he is ultimately the one who controls the outcome. In the meantime, He has provided us with governments to keep us safe and relatively peaceful so that we can spend time honoring him. When our government fails to do this, we have constitutional provisions to change it. We need to exercise these legal controls by electing legislators who respect our constitution, and appointing judges who are of like mind.
