American Prospectus II

Wrong Way, America
     7/29/20

America, have you not noticed?  You are definitely headed in the wrong direction.  Just look at how things are going.  Think about the stress you’re feeling from all the painful issues that now daily intrude upon your peace of mind. And, consider how little control you have over any of it.  Let’s face it, my friends, you’re feeling an emotional and circumstantial squeeze that is getting tighter and tighter every day. 

And, here’s the simple truth of it all.  You are now experiencing the unwanted and the unintended, simply because you made a wrong turn earlier in believing a stupid, but pleasant sounding, lie.  And, this is that demonic lie which was first told in the Garden of Eden, “You are your own best hope for personal fulfillment in this life.”

How arrogant can you be, America?  Do you really believe that you can control the absolute randomness of this life?  Do you really think that in this highly competitive existence, there is not always somebody out there who can best you and defeat your dreams to substantiate their own?  Is it really possible that you are such a “Superman” that nothing totally devastating can touch you?  Dr. Phil might say at this point, “Well, how is all of that working for you, Superman?”

Obviously, not so good, it would seem.  The politicians you hired to protect you and look out for your interests are now just mostly looking out for their own.  The “Corona Pig” is on your back every day.  Your way of life is becoming less and less virtuous and more and more violent.  Your national and personal finances are in danger of collapsing on any given day without warning.  The goods and services you once took for granted are now sporadically available at best.  And the social and political ground under your feet is now quacking with explosive pressure.

Maybe it’s time to quit kidding yourself, America.  If you were really Superman you would be “bullet proof.”  But, very obviously, you are not.  And neither are you, your own best hope in this life.   Christ, who can connect you to the love of Almighty God is your best hope for true personal fulfillment.  

So, maybe it’s now time, America, to climb down off your game playing high-horse, ask Christ’s forgiveness for your arrogance, and start again – this time genuinely guiding your life by His values, His Truth, and His whispered daily directions for your life.  Trusting and genuinely experiencing the loving daily companionship of the Living Jesus is where the pain stops and true fulfillment comes to your life.  His fulfilling companionship is exponentially better than the daily pain which sprouts from your delusional self-sufficiency.

Dr. Kings Remedy

What we’re presently watching in the country is not legitimate protest. And, it certainly attaches no noble cause. This is just politically Cultivated Rage. And the worst part is how easily it has come about.

The seditious Left has done its “Pot Stirring” and Divide-and-Conquer work very well, especially in our Democrat controlled larger cities and states. And now, we're getting a really good look at where their efforts are taking us.

In case anyone is yet unaware, it is "down the rabbit hole," where insanity rules and a quality life becomes a distant memory. But, you know, we could choose not to fall for this treachery.

We could simply choose to continue to do what the vast majority of us learned to do a long time back - at Dr. King's behest. We could just continue assessing people simply by the “content of their character” - just as the beloved doc prescribed.

And, as a whole, America has, indeed, learned to look within the individual – rather than at their superficial externals. And, we should give ourselves credit for this important national achievement, instead of kowtowing to politically spawned propaganda and misinformation spewed through a mob voice.

America is long past any national character flaw of racism. That is the true and present reality which the vast majority of our citizens anecdotally prove every single day, across this land.

Absolute perfection, in any nation of people, is simply not achievable. But, we do have a very adequate system of laws which efficiently takes care of those tragic exceptions which do occasionally occur.

Obviously, Dr. King very well understood the remedy for racism in a nation. It is simply to stop making race the issue - at all.  Rather, his remedy was to make character the issue and the bedrock basis for all of our interpersonal relationships. And his way worked.

Ironically, however, that is the very test which militant street heathens, who loot and burn, cannot pass. But, that's entirely on them - just as Dr. King and the King of kings, indicated that it should be.

Divided
5/12/20

In the New Testament, Jesus revealed a principle which inextricably applies to the destiny of every nation – whether for good or evil.  He said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.”  Such a statement is one of those immutable principles established by the Creator to govern reality, itself. Thus, if we ignore its implications, especially in present-day America, we invite our own failure.

Washington is obviously now deeply divided.  Because of the unpredictability born of this division, we can no longer rest assured that what comes from Washington will truly keep faith with our previous sacrifices, gains, and proud history - or with the best interests of our strength, prosperity, and sovereignty, going forward.

This has all come to pass primarily through the seditious work of the Marxists who live among us under various masking banners and the pretense of patriotism – but who, in actuality, hate everything for which America stands.  The face of this seditious conglomerate of organizations and individuals has become the Democrat Party.  But, the hateful tentacles of these subversive groups and individuals reach much further throughout our society.   They cancerously touch and taint not only our seats of government, but also the hearts of our individual citizens, especially our younger citizens, through the various forms of media and all levels of our educational system.

There can be no doubt that this seditious movement has now become very strong in America. And, it is doing what Marxist always do, when they becomes numerically strong enough.  They remove the mask of pretense and become openly militant.  Thus, this seditious movement is now, undeniably, a very much out-in-the-open American reality.

And certainly, this undermining alliance between the Democrat party, the media, academia, and the bureaucratic deep state is, at all times, an imminent existential threat to this nation.  But, this is especially true during this present economic crisis.

In the coming election, if American voters fail to see through the hateful propaganda of these seditious “pot-stirrers and dividers” to profoundly denounce this movement, the “Darkness” will come for us.  I read recently, “What you don’t change - you choose.”
