Of pride, destruction and the lame ducks
Its almost like one of those 1970s movies where everything is going bad and it ends with the destruction of all involved--you sit there and just wonder why you endured watching it to the end, trying to find the redemptive value in it. That's how many Americans feel after the current lame duck session of Congress. It was clear in the early hours of Wednesday, November 3 that America had totally rejected the agenda of the socialists in Congress and at the White House. But as we prepare for Christmas and want to focus on family, friends, and a celebration of Lord Jesus, the very scoundrels we voted out of office have come back and knifed us in the back with the full force of their agenda.
The national debt soared to record levels and every American citizen's share of it increased to nearly $45,000. How about finding that bill under the Christmas tree? While tax cuts were preserved, Congress and the White House busted the bank with unemployment payments. Now the military will be forced to allow homosexuals to serve openly. The president's remarks seemed very close to the account in the Bible of the father welcoming home the prodigal son. Homosexuals have been banned in the military since the time of George Washington. And for good reason. The Senate also ratified the new arms treaty with Russia, without strong verification capabilities and by reducing America's ability to defend herself.
Its almost like the president and his allies in Congress get up in the morning, look in the mirror, smile a dastardly smile and say to their selfs: "I'm going to help destroy America today." From tagging Christians as extremists, Muslims as peaceful to spending us into oblivion to placing us in vicarious debt with our enemy China to taking control of the internet to mandating abortion, opening the door for euthanasia and requiring us all to buy government run healthcare to letting homosexuals openly serve in the military to giving Russia a huge advantage over our national defense, it seems like the president and congress are trying to inflict massive destruction before our holy days.
And in parting, the president was "disappointed" that he and his lame ducks didn't get a bill passed to allow all the illegals amnesty before Christmas. The enemies of America have been well served in these days since the election. Up next, the president says is a "strong civil union" for homosexuals that affords them the same rights as married couples and opening the door to illegal immigration. Part of the problem with all this is that the entire Congress didn't care about what the people voted in November--socialism at its best--give them a vote, but do what you want. Proverbs 14:34 says "Righteousness exalts a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people." We have a long way to go on the righteousness part.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
