Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence and third President of this nation once said; “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.”

Today in 21st-century America too many believe what they want to believe, were taught to believe or indoctrinated to believe and it isn’t what they ought to believe. Common sense is not all that common in many areas of this nation. In one of the mo$t highly funded public education systems in the world common sense is frequently lacking. Many in this nation have acquired immense amounts of useless information and no idea what to do with it. Therefore many are confused as to who they are mentally, physically, emotionally, sexually and spiritually.

Marxism, Socialism, Communism and all other Godless “isms” throughout history were created by those who know how to exploit the minds of the people, Lenin once said; “Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes truth.” America has become dangerously socialist and the freedom to produce success is being eroded.

The advocates of any managed welfare state want government to solve all perceived problems of society by controlling all life from the womb to the tomb as government takes the place of God.

This nation’s Founding Fathers were geniuses who were God-fearing Christians that created a “Republic” Ruled by law based on Judeo-Christian principles found in the infallible word of God. Today the average Democrat uses the term “democracy” to describe America’s traditional Constitutional Republic.

Joe Biden is not on the ballot on Tuesday, November 8th, 2022 but his policies and those of his “Democracy Democrat” advocates are. We are witnessing the conflict between the two Americas as one America believes there is no such thing as God-given rights as revealed by our creator.

These same “Democracy Democrats” including the now-called “Rural Democrats” only want to advocate for their tax and spend policies while complaining about lack of school funding and workforce shortages at every campaign event, public forum and debate. Have they ever thought that their pro-choice views have contributed to over 60 million innocent lives that would have increased school enrollment funding while increasing today’s workforce?

We must pray up, stand up, speak up and vote up on November 8th, 2022 and reject the socialistic policies of those that want to take this nation down the path of destruction and into the graveyard of fallen nations. Human foolishness takes pride in human intellect instead of God’s omnipotent power.

Ifs in the Bible have significant consequences, if not followed. 2 Chronicles 7:14 tells us; “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
