Complacency Has Destroyed the American Way of Life

Gary Kelly

February 16, 2009

The era (error) of "Hope and Change" will prove to be either the last nail in the coffin or the straw that breaks the camel's back. Complacency, which is responsible for apathy and self-chosen ignorance, has morphed "We the people" into "We the sheeple" and has forever altered the American Way of Life, which our descendants may never again experience.

"We the sheeple" voted for "change," in the "hope" they will no longer be held personally and collectively accountable or responsible for their actions or inactions. "We the sheeple" are becoming more and more dependent upon government to provide all their needs from cradle to grave and mandated by laws what they can and cannot say or do.

President Obama's rhetoric appeals for "a new era of responsibility," yet those who voted for him exhibit no rationale for why they voted for him? Have you seen the interviews and heard the answers of those who were asked why they voted for Obama?  His appeals for responsibility also exclude sex that "goes against nature" (Romans 1, Hebrews 13:4) as proudly and boldly proclaimed on WhiteHouse.gov and his funding of the abortion industry.

Progressive secular liberals are either smarter in accomplishing their goal of socialism then conservatives are in preventing this degradation of America, or conservatives are not as committed in preserving the Republic progressive liberals are destroying?

"And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor."

Would today's conservatives have signed on to the Declaration of Independence with this Patriot Declaration as did our Founders?

Are "We the people" surrendering to "We the sheeple?" Do all of "We the people," social and fiscal conservatives and gun owners vote?  Do any vote for progressive liberals? Do "We the sheeple" actually out number "We the people?"

The main reasons for America's demise. (1) Citizens of both America and the Kingdom of God are only preaching John 3:16, not 3:16 through 21 and 1 Timothy 2, not 2 Timothy 4. This disobedience to the Lord's call to be salt and Light has resulted in reasons 2-4. (2) Public and "higher" education has eliminated America's Christian Heritage by replacing it with progressive secular political correctness. (3) The Mainstream News and Entertainment Media not only promotes an America without moral boundaries but refuses to righteously cover and report all facts and views of issues fairly, essentially promoting progressive secular liberal political correctness without just intellectual debate. (4) Government, including politicians and judges are kowtowing to 2 & 3 on the false premise that government, not God, is the "new and improved" author of liberty and justice for all, and believe they have been elected to care for the needs of Americans instead of their Constitutionally defined purpose of only providing security from physical threat, not fiscal.

If "We the people" had remained founded in the proclamations of America's Founding Document we would not have allowed "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" to be replaced with the laws of progressive secular liberal political correctness which has created "We the sheeple" and a government of the government by the government, for the government. 

"A wise prince will seek means by which his subjects will always and in every possible condition of things have need of his government, and then they will always be faithful to him." --Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527)

"We who live in free market societies believe that growth, prosperity and ultimately human fulfillment, are created from the bottom up, not the government down. Only when the human spirit is allowed to invent and create, only when individuals are given a personal stake in deciding economic policies and benefitting from their success -- only then can societies remain economically alive, dynamic, progressive, and free." --Ronald Reagan

"...the blissfully ignorant among you are completely unaware as to what I am talking about. If you are not willing to actually look at what is going on around this nation then do us all a favor and keep your heads in the sand. Keeping it there will certainly afford you the most protection when push comes to shove and the bullets start flying. Duck and cover like the government has told you to do. --J.J. Jackson

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."  ...  "The worship of God is a duty...Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God and nature." "...Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God."  --Benjamin Franklin

"We live in an age of science and of abounding accumulation of material things. These did not create our Declaration. Our Declaration created them. The things of the spirit come first. Unless we cling to that, all our material prosperity, overwhelming though it may appear, will turn to a barren sceptre in our grasp. If we are to maintain the great heritage which has been bequeathed to us, we must be like-minded as the fathers who created it." --Calvin Coolidge

"We the people" that remain have a choice. Carry on, as drones, like stingless bees in a colony whose sole function is to mate with the queen of secular progressive political correctness or begin to exhibit the same Biblical moral virtue that was the reason and basis for signing the Declaration of Independence and confront godless abuses and reestablish liberty and freedom as defined and offered by God, not government.
