Face of America

Protect Democracy and Our Way of Life

Principles Of Our Founding Fathers

I encourage you to use this LINK to learn more about this video.

It is sad that Americans have forgotten the values that the Founding Fathers had when they established the Constitution and populated this land for religious and political freedom.

We have been blessed greatly by what they did and by the sacrifices they made to develop this land and make it the great nation that it has been throughout the ages. However, America is NOT seen in as good of light as it used to be because we have forgotten GOD and why He is woven into the fabric of our Constitution and our way of life.

I hope we will all do our part in remembering the blessings we have enjoyed because of our faith and trust in God. I also hope that we will espouse those same values as the earlier settlers and that we will influence those in our circles of association to remember these things as well.

I welcome your comments.

I HAVE BEEN ASKED WHY I POSTED THIS VIDEO.

Let me explain the reason I wrote this posting with the video. I received a comment from a reader who said my meaning was not clear. Let me clarify this for you.

I came across the video shown above and felt moved by the picture of Christ and the implication that He was behind the Constitution.

The video made me think about the Founding Fathers and how they believed they were guided by the Lord when they drew up the Constitution. Then I thought about how far we have moved from the original intent of the Founding Fathers and the ideals that were behind the writing of our laws and civil rights.

I realized how blessed we are to live in a nation that has been so rewarded with prosperity and International standing. These thoughts brought me to the realization that we are not as blessed as we used to be. Why? Because, at almost every turn, we are busily removing God from public view and forgetting the values that were purposely woven into the Constitution.

The idea of showing this video is to hopefully influence others to think about the same things depicted the painting and perhaps contemplate on how blessed we have been as a nation. We still can become a more blessed nation and improve our international standing when those who represent us in government move closer to the principles that once made this nation great.

I hope this explanation clarifies the reader’s question.

We’re Take’n Back America

We’ve been asleep at the wheel for far too long and now we are about ready to crash if we don’t wake up quickly. We have to do something right now before everything this country has been to us will be gone. Those of us older than 40 years old know what I’m talking about. They remember how America used to be and the values that have been lost today. Our children and grandchildren depend on us right now to protect what we have lost and pass on something worthwhile to the future. What future do our children have right now if we do nothing?

Is this situation what our Forefathers feared would happen? Is this what they fought and died for? Is this what our fathers, grandfathers, and brothers died to protect in previous wars? Is this what our men and women are fighting for RIGHT NOW around the world, as we sit here in our plush war homes and drive our nice cars and eat nice meals?

Well, I’m sorry but this just isn’t good enough for me. I remember America 50 years ago, and I remember the way it used to be –before Democrats forgot who they serve, and Republicans got greedy. The youth don’t know the America that we know. They don’t know what they’ve lost, but we do. We know that they deserve more than what they are inheriting now, don’t we? l, very controlling and outright loss of freedom planned for us! Can’t you see it? Can’t you stop long enough to read between the lines?

Whatever way of life we live now, it is nothing like we will have if we take the bate and fall for the garbage being told to us by the Democrats. If you believe they are telling you the truth then you’ve been brain washed, because they are telling us the biggest lies ever before told by politicians from the past. They have evil, very controlling and outright loss of freedom planned for us! Can’t you see it? Can’t you stop long enough to read between the lines?

This is no longer “Politics as Usual” and a question between Democrats and Republicans. It is a matter of evil versus lessor evil. Let’s clean out the Democrats and get back the House, and then we can work on cleaning out the Republicans.

Just remember that a vote against Republican or no vote at all, is a vote for the Democrats and more loss of rights and freedom. You have to see this before we’ve lost everything we hold dear. NO MORE POLITICS AS USUAL. THIS IS NOW SURVIVAL!

I want to hear from you if you don’t agree with this video. I promise, I’ll be nice. I just want to know your thoughts on this!

America In Transition

soldiers-praying

We Are The Face of America

I hope people will think about how America is portrayed around the world when they criticize our nation and her President.

Hey, I am one who objects sometimes to the President’s policies, but I do it with respect for his position. He is America, and represents us because we elected him…supposedly because he represents our views. If he does not represent our views, then we need to be a lot more responsible in electing our President and representatives to Congress.

We Are In Another Transition

Presently, America is going through another transition in at least three areas:

  1. A weak economy,
  2. Liberal Democrats who are trying to establish Socialism,
  3. And loss of values in society.

The Economy

A weak economy means unemployment is high and people stop spending money on new homes, new cars, traveling, and other discretionary items. People stop spending when the cost of living goes up and leaves little money for spending in other ways.

Eventually the tide turns and the economy straightens out and settles down. When that happens, the economy grows stronger because people can go back to spending. According to articles I’ve read, when government gets involved in this process, the problem usually becomes worse. When government stays out of it and allows things to work itself out, the damages from a weak economy is minimal.

Socialism

This is when we are no longer in control our lives but instead, it is what government thinks is good for society. In some ways, Socialism can be a good thing. However, it mostly creates dependence on government and destroys self-reliance.

Self-reliance is demonstrated best by those who came from England and settled in the Americas. They had no one but themselves to depend on, and left behind a government that had too much power over their lives. It was a government that tried to do the same with their new settlements. That did not sit well with the people. To be free of England’s control, Americans had to declare their independence and their right to lead their own lives.

Values

If “We The People” would not expect something for nothing, and if we would not accept dishonesty in our homes, work place, community, business, and even church, then perhaps we would not be lacking the values we do today.

Also, if we would nurture our marriages and family relationships better, perhaps we would not have the extent of abuse and dysfunction in society as we do. In addition, if we would love God and obey His Commandments better, and if we would insist on values being engraved in our souls and the souls of family members, perhaps we would not see the obvious lack of values in government, business, and society as we do today.

The problems we have now are our own fault. If communities would take care of their widows, the poor, the lame, and the needy as they should (as did the early settlers) we would likely not see a loud cry from the people asking government for help in relieving their suffering.


Our Government Today

The biggest problem I see now is a political party that does not appreciate the danger in establishing Socialism as the rule of this land. “We The People” do not seem to understand the problem either.

Here is a hint of what Socialism represents:

  • High Taxation to pay for all the government programs we give away to people who don’t work or pay taxes;
  • More government programs mean more government intervention;
  • More government involvement in personal lives and the choices we have to pursue our dreams;
  • Robin hood attitude: Take from the rich and give to the poor. President Obama said it best when he was a candidate. He said we need to take from those who have a higher income (because they have two spouses working or they’ve worked for an education) and give it to the poor. He said that we should tax the rich at a higher tax rate as well.Where is the fairness in the example described here?

Why penalize those who invent things, invest in America, create jobs, and those who fund government programs through taxation?

Where is the fairness when the poor do not pay taxes but get benefits from programs they did not pay for through taxes?

Where is the fairness when those who are taxed pay for the programs that they cannot take advantage of themselves because they make too much money to qualify?

Well my dear, that’s Socialism!

In Conclusion

The American People are a strong and kind people but they won’t stand for what I’ve just discribed for their government. People have died to protect our rights to be governed by independent Republics and to be united as one nation under God (as a democracy with checks and balances in place to keep it honest).

The problem now is that Congress is not doing its job. They are supposed to set policy (not judges) and they are responsible for protecting the Constitution (not reword it or interpret it as they please).

May Americans become more concerned about the enemy invading us from within our own government, those who appear to represent the best interests of the people. Yet, in fact, they are in it for themselves and their own aspirations to gain power and appease greed.

These people are sneaky and appear to be good but they speak out of two sides of their mouths. One side says “We will do what’s best for America” and out of the other side they say “What’s best for America is what’s best for me and my ambitions.” We’ve seen a lot of this attitude lately.

The truth is that many Americans can see the “handwriting on the wall”! They know our liberty is at risk, and that our way of life is about to change. The face of America will surely become a face of Socialism or perhaps worse. We must comply with this change or fight.

What will you be willing to do?

Are you willing to protect this land from the enemy within?

Are you willing to stand on the side and hope and protect what we hold dear?

Or, will you tell yourself that someone else will have to do it for you?
