Our confused nation
To the Editor:
There is an old saying that can’t be more true than today! “Uncle Sam is our uncle but is not our Heavenly Father!” With that said, our founding fathers had it right. The perfect harmony that our country was “framed” on was based on God over man and man over government. This equaled a perfect balance for “We the People” to live with God and His blessing.
Unfortunately today, the balance has been tipped upside-down by man’s pride, greed, lust for power, arrogance and “political correctness.”
Now, the “equation” reads Government over man and “God.” Notice the reversal of “players” and priorities as the Harmony has been totally disrupted. “Big Government” now wants to control, snoop and harass man with God pushed aside and in some cases out of sight!
Why then, does our nation seem confused? Why are people today depressed and seem lost? Why does our president ignore the will of the people? Why does our country seem weak and slipping into darkness?
Our leaders and president have their own vision of what’s right and wrong today. Their liberal stance is destroying all the core values that our “Framers” so beautifully drafted long ago. “Political Correctness” is decaying our country and it’s time for “We the People” to wake up, get involved, voice your opinion and vote the people out who are shifting the “perfect balance” and bright right is right and wrong is wrong back into the equation.
