Independence

I’m a bit of a history buff. I’m fascinated by the American generations that came before us. Those who hit adversity head on and not only survived, but thrived. In my lifetime things have been pretty easy relatively speaking. We’ve had no war to compare to the Revolutionary War, Civil War, WWI, or WWII. Even with the recent economic troubles we’ve seen great prosperity compared to generations past. I frequently recall some of my grandfather’s stories about the Great Depression.

 

I thank God that I was born into such a blessed generation. But I fear our challenge is just now coming to light. Our elected representatives do not appear to have our best interest in mind. We’re seeing unprecedented abuses by the government on its citizens. I fear what our government will do if allowed to continue unchallenged by the people who elected them.

 

I encourage you to really dig into the issues. It won’t be easy, and it will take a little time, but it is imperative that you be informed. Bypass the fluff headlines of the main stream media, and find out what’s really going on. If you think the biggest news of last week was the death of Michael Jackson you need to do some reading. Find out what our House of Representatives did on Friday, and ask yourself why the media didn’t lead the evening news with that story.

 

Listening to Christian Radio and Talk Radio is a great start.

 

It’s time to stop being a bystander, and start being an activist. Write your elected officials, go to a Tea Party, and speak up for what you believe in.

 

Pray for our leaders, our country, and the church.

 

God Bless America!
