During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence.”
1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
3. From courage to liberty;
4. From liberty to abundance;
5. From abundance to complacency;
6. From complacency to apathy;
7. From apathy to dependence;
8. From dependence back into bondage.
The dumbing down of America.
Yeah, that dumbing down is a problem. It likely explains over half his letter being the equivalent of copy and paste. Let's get to the finale. Bring on God!
We may be one vote away from dictatorship. Vote wisely.
Remember always, it is God who places rulers and kings. God has his program and this portion is nearing completion. Next phase soon to start. Look into God’s program for your well-being. The USA is not found as a player in end time events in his book (the Bible).
If God is omniscient and wrote the Bible it's kinda interesting that he would have left us out of it. That's very strange. It's almost like it was written by men who didn't know this land mass was here.
Next up is Elizabeth Sullivan, who I don't believe achieved true humorless harpy of hate status with her letter. Keep trying, Liz. You can do it.
I think we all agree that the candidates running for the presidency are atrocious. It boggles the mind that out of 320 million people, they are the best we can do.
I'm relatively happy with HRC.
However, this election is the most important one in over two centuries. It will determine whether the U.S. remains a free nation or becomes a Marxist Socialist nation. This election is not about the candidates or a popularity contest or party lines. It is about who to vote for who will save our country.
I'm confused. I thought Obama already turned us Marxist Socialist.
A vote for Donald Trump is for the continuation of freedom and liberty, capitalism and the Constitution, a Supreme Court that is fair and balanced, that won't push their progressive agenda on everyone, a "free" America.
She left out truth. justice and the American way. Why is free in scare quotes?
I truly believe he can bring back our economy, help the poor and secure our borders. People may say "Donald Trump is a time bomb." Have no fear. If he got out of control, the Congress and Senate will impeach him in a heartbeat. That is the beauty of our government; checks and balances.
Reading this I have to question her "faith" in Trump. As a frequent letter writer, I would question the wisdom of the line saying Trump is a time bomb and then offering that he might be. And thanks for explaining how our government works. It's odd to say Congress and the Senate when the Senate is part of Congress, tho. And it's actually the part that does that impeachy thing. I'd prefer not to take a chance on the system working so well and not elect him in the first place.
Well, had to save the best for last: Patricia Harrington. She's a frequent contributor and never disappoints. Certainly not today.
We are all worked up about Mr. Trump’s past. Yet we are not concerned with the very sketchy, disgusting history that we all know for sure exists with the Clintons.
Yes, please don't mention any of that history. We'll just take that for granted.
Before all of us were born, our ancestors were sent a savior by God to help us to change and all we had to do is to listen and follow him.
Is He on the ballot?
Our leaders at that time made us afraid to listen and follow. They told lies about him and convinced us that he was evil. We agreed to crucify that one savior.
She gets kudos for not going all anti-Semitic and pointing out who "they" were.
I am not comparing Mr. Trump to Jesus Christ.
Then what the hell did you bring up Jesus for? Cuz I don't see any other reason.
But I am saying that here we have a man trying to save us from all the evil that has been weighing on our country. Mr. Trump has enough money to hop on his plane with all the people he cares about and just move out of this country.
Don't get my hopes up. I'm sure he can find a lovely dacha in Russia.
He is trying to help us, and we are treating him like our ancestors treated Jesus.
See. Now, there you go comparing him to Him again.
Have we not learned from history mistakes? Read your Bibles. Be not afraid of change.
I've read it. Trump ain't in it. And as Carl Thomas notes, the United States isn't either.
