“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” - John Adams
In the 2012 presidential election, many conservatives were flustered about the results. We thought that it the very least it would be close. The senate might change to the Republican side, or close to it. Unfortunately, we lost on both of those counts. Many predictions based on historical data would say that the election would change to the Republican side. In spite of an at-best stagnant economy, mountains of debt, burdensome regulations, and foreign policy disasters, the popular vote still went to the Democrat. While the Democrat candidate received less votes, so did the Republican candidate. Do people even care about the state of the country? I think there might even be a bigger question. Why did we hope so much that the Republican win? What were the long term problems of this election?
I hoped the the election would go to the Republican, but I knew that the final results would indicate the moral integrity of this great nation.
You see, over the years we have seen time and time again, the moral decay of this nation. We had many instances in the Constitution used to protect our morals. For example, the 1st amendment. Over time the 1st amendment has been distorted from; the government cannot interfere with religion to religion cannot interfere with government. We have also heard many times that you cannot bring your morality into the government decisions. Contrary to popular opinion, the government was founded on Judeo-christian values, and most in the United States shared those values.
Even still, we have departed from our beloved morals and traditions. Millions of children have been deemed to be a choice; it is celebrated when the God-given protections are stripped away and the "choice's" voice is silenced forever. Demands for government-funded contraception methods exceed the demands to help the handicapped. Sex is deemed as the most natural action of humanity and yet the natural results of sex is killed. The need for man-made objects is greater as we assume the unnatural actions are becoming natural, specifically contraception and birth control. And while sex is natural, it is only natural in the way created by God. The depravity does not end here however. Homosexual attraction has become greater and is celebrated. And yet when a godly couple might choose to abstinence until marriage, then get married, they are strange. Quite possibly, on the eve of the wedding, the husband will be told that it the end of his life. When a good and decent organization declares that it believes that marriage was created for one man and one women, protests and disgraceful actions follow in response, but when a company supports homosexuality, it is celebrated. Our teenagers are taught about sex in the classroom. An atmosphere that should be for the parents. Fathers are becoming increasingly rare. There is an unwillingness to reform our entitlements for fear we might lose our money, but be better suited for our children. me Me ME ME ME ME ME, I WANT I WANT I WANT. I want to feel good. I do not want to do something difficult. I will not stand up for what is right if I might lose something.
Our moral culture is depraved, it is no wonder we might get the results that we got. Quite possibly, the only way to emerge from this, is for a spiritual awakening. A belief in right and wrong. A return to the morality of our founders, on the bible. Respect for your brother and sister. A love of life. Family values. Selflessness. Faith. Humility. etc. etc. etc.
America no longer wants truth and justice. We have chosen our path many years ago, but the final nail in the coffin was election day. Americans showed our true colors. There is always hope for a better time, but at this time, it seems unlikely.
“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.”
