There is an ancient proverb that says “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.” As a nation that can freely choose its leadership, the fallen state of the populace has not kept a proper watch over those who would be elected to lead. Now there is a cadre of leaders in Congress, the judicial system and at the White House who are systematically destroying the nation, the American way of life, and placing the entirety of America’s future in jeopardy of becoming an afterthought. This is particularly important to the rest of the world, as America traditionally has been viewed as a beacon of freedom.
America’s leaders seek war after war after war in the name of liberating mostly Islamic peoples to the benefits of democracy. In turn, these grateful people choose Islamic Sharia as their law, and become more oppressed than before, exalting evil leaders who wish to impose their brand of religion and government on the rest of the world. Additionally, America through its foreign policy actions has made the world a far less safer place. In particular, the only true ally of the United States in the Middle East, Israel, is increasingly being surrounded by extremists as a result of the American actions. This foreign policy has exacted a political, economical and physical toll on every American citizen.
America’s leadership has collectively borrowed and printed money it doesn’t have. It has instituted policies and programs that redistribute the earnings of those who work hard to those who do not work at all. America’s leaders have corrupted our children by teaching perversion in the public schools. They have abused their power in passing many laws that would never hold up under the Constitution save an honest judiciary. They move to remove Christian religion from the public square. They refuse to secure the nation’s borders, even to the point of arming drug lords from Mexico with assault weapons. They have demolished the American dream of home ownership. These are just a few of the problems.
Sadly, the two party system has no checks and balances because both parties say what they need to say to get elected, and they act the same as the ruling class. The government of the people now knows better than the people. As the Apostle Peter says “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of Yah (God).” You see, those who know the Truth of Yeshua (Jesus) should be overcoming evil with good. If 80% of Americans claim to be Christian, why doesn’t America’s leadership reflect those values? Unless Americans take seriously their spiritual obligation and act responsibility as citizens, there will be no new dawn, but there will be a great mourning.
