America Chose Tyranny

I have decided to finally give my opinion about the decision American voters made on November 6th. I have seen many political pundits give their opinions as to why Mitt Romney lost but I think they are looking only at surface issues. We have chosen tyranny and rejected liberty but it is much deeper than that.

I have always heard that we are a center-right country but it is quite obvious that is no longer true. This has become a leftist nation and I don't believe our best days are still ahead but instead, I see that our demise has been firmly set in stone.

Because of the re-election of Barack Obama his signature assault on our nation, ObamaCare, will be embedded and cemented in our culture. We will finally have socialized medicine after 100 years of Progressives fighting for it and we will suffer dearly once it is completely implemented. Also, Obama's "fundamental transformation" of America will be completed after eight years in office. But that is not the worst thing from this election.

The people in the states of Maine, Maryland and Washington have voted to approve same sex marriage. Every time the people have been allowed to vote about same sex marriage, instead of state legislatures forcing it down their throats, it has been rejected until this week. But that is not the worst thing from this election.

Republicans are running scared because they failed to gain votes from Hispanics, Latinos, Mexicans, etc., and have decided it is time to open our borders to one and all so they can garner more votes in future elections. Rush Limbaugh looked at the elections after Ronald Reagan approved amnesty in 1986 and found some interesting information: "Ronaldus Magnus passes amnesty, Simpson-Mazzoli in 1986. Ronald Reagan in 1984 got 37% of the Hispanic vote. So the Republican Party getting 37% of the Hispanic vote when Reagan signs amnesty. George H. W. Bush, Bush 41, runs for office in 1988, two years after Simpson-Mazzoli. Two years after the Republican Party is seen as heroically granting amnesty, what percentage of the Hispanic vote do you think that George H. W. Bush got two years after Reagan passed amnesty? Thirty percent. The Republican Party lost 7% of the Hispanic vote after passing amnesty." The Republicans are believing a lie. It turns out that "it is not immigration policy that creates the strong bond between Hispanics and the Democratic party, but the core Democratic principles of a more generous safety net, strong government intervention in the economy, and progressive taxation."

There was a Mexican caller on Limbaugh's program Friday that verified... "unfortunately the majority of the Mexican people that come over to the United States, they're already marginalized in their own country. They don't have very much education and they believe that the government is the only source of wealth." (emphasis mine)

The Republicans are willing to throw out their principles and move to the left in order to buy votes they will never get. We may get open borders, more lawlessness, more weakening of our culture and a more divided America because of this lie and the cowardice of Republicans but the GOP will get something else. They will never win another nationwide election because 12-20 million illegals that receive amnesty will vote for the government to support them and that means they will continue to vote Democrat. But that is not the worst thing from this election.

Have you thought about the Supreme Court? Justices Scalia and Kennedy are 76 and Justice Thomas is 64. If anything (God forbid!) happens to any or all of these men, Obama will appoint more replacements and the court will go hard left. Our Constitution will be re-written for a generation or longer without properly amending it. But that is not the worst thing from this election.

Do you remember when the Democrats dropped God and pro-Israel language from their platform during their convention, last September, and tried to have it reinstated by a floor vote? The delegates overwhelmingly voted "NO!" but the chair declared they had voted yes! From that point on, we knew the Democrats, as a party, rejected God and are anti-Semitic. Of course, we should have known since Roe v Wade that Democrats reject God.

Since becoming a Christian, I have known for many years that the United States of America is not mentioned in Bible prophecy. Interesting, isn't it? Why would the world's most prominent super power, the largest economic power, the most prosperous and wealthy nation in the history of man be ignored in end times prophecy? The three main possibilities might be: God's prophecies concern Israel so only the nations in close proximity to it are mentioned, the US has become a destitute, third world country by the time God's prophecies are fulfilled or the US has been destroyed by a nuclear attack. Of course, there could be a combination of two or more of these.

Contrary to popular belief, our nation was founded by godly and moral men who lived according to Biblical principles and I believe the Constitution of the United States was inspired by God. The founders prayed together at the Constitutional Convention asking for the Lord's guidance in their endeavors. The first textbook used in our schools (from the 1700s to the early 1900s) was the New England Primer that used scripture to teach children morals, ethics, scruples and how to live a godly life. Noah Webster's 1828 dictionary used scripture to define words of the English language. Webster once wrote:

All of the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery and war, proceed from them despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.

And he also wrote:

The Bible must be considered as the great source of all the truth by which men are to be guided in government as well as in all social transactions.

Ours was once a Christian nation and God blessed us with liberty and prosperity for many generations. However, throughout the last generation or two we have grown cold to the Lord but I thought there was a majority of Americans that still believed in God and welcomed him in our country.

On November 6th, I was proven wrong. A majority of Americans voted to be ruled by a party that rejects God and has no desire to continue a close relationship with the State of Israel. Obama voters think his re-election means Israel will soon be gone (graphic language warning!) and even Israel expects the US to abandon them because of the election outcome.

The Democrat party's rejection of God is the worst thing that has come from the election and we will suffer from this choice. I am not saying that every Democrat is godless but I am saying a majority of the delegates at their convention loudly voted against putting God and pro-Israel language back in their platform after it had been removed. Genesis 12:2-4 speaks of God's feelings about nations that bless or curse Israel and the reaction he will have.

I grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana and I remember The Indianapolis Star's masthead had the following scripture quote: Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. I seriously doubt if that newspaper still has that scripture on the front page. We continue to remove God from the public square, to our own detriment, as we shun our Christian heritage and beliefs.

With the majority of voters choosing the Democrat party for two thirds of our national government, the approval of same sex marriage by three states, the change of our culture from work to welfare, the continuing irresponsibility of our government's immoral spending of money we do not have and never will have, as a majority, we have rejected God, his Word, his principles and his precepts. The consequences will be grave.

We can still choose to serve God as individuals and trust in him for our individual salvation even as our country is slowly destroyed around us. My advice is to repent, let Jesus change your heart and your life as you serve him. Jesus is our only hope now and forever. There is no politician, no election and no government that can help us.

I have spent three years and countless hours contributing to this blog because I was hoping in my own small way to make a difference. Instead, I have allowed my relationship with Jesus to suffer and I have been deeply entrenched in the slime of American politics on almost a daily basis. I had planned for this to be my last post but Michael, the founder of Republic Heritage, has asked me to reconsider and suggested that I change the tone of this blog from politics to Christian outreach. At this point I'm undecided.

There is a Christian song that has this chorus:

When mountains fall, I'll stand
By the Power of Your Hand
And in Your Heart of Hearts, I'll dwell
That my soul knows very well.

I believe the mountains that have held America up are about to fall. Please, let the power of God's hand keep you standing.
