AMERICA: Here’s what’s wrong

Print Article

Once again millions of law-abiding gun owners face the potential threat of government confiscation of legal firearms, and from a Texan no less! Have that many Texans steered so far left that they’ve forgotten the history of their own state and the God-given rights to self-defense of fellow citizens in all 50 states?

I’ve come to the conclusion that lawmakers in Washington, D.C., and legislators in many states have lost touch with the reality of the life of the common people. But what else can citizens expect when most lawmakers have gone out of their way to remove the eternal principles of God from our society? Morality, swift justice, speaking against all sorts of perversions, personal responsibility and accountability have become politically incorrect in most mainstream media and society in general. The consequences of fatherless homes, violent video games, no-fault sex, and lack of respect and work ethics in our youth are coming home to roost.

At present, we have a justice system that releases mentally unstable and wicked “cancers” back into our society, or saddles our citizens with the lifetime care and feeding of these individuals. The do-gooders who hate capital punishment must truly believe they know better than God. Until we as a society return to common sense, to include swift justice for evil-doers, personal responsibility, abolish the nanny state, return discipline of children to their parents and acknowledge our need for divine guidance from the Creator, we as a society will continue to observe and suffer the consequences that are presently upon us.
