I understand these sentiments - Have them myself - Rant about them here and in my real life...
But there is a dangerous undercurrent happening in this country. People thinking that society is about an inch thick. There is no depth and that thin layer is starting to fray. People are mad. People are scared. I personally believe that most people are not savages - that we will continue to treat others with compassion and respect, but that is a whole 'nother post.... And you may see it soon ;)
The impression is that there is a large part of the population that will be homeless soon. Actually only 8% are in danger of loosing their home. That number will rise as unemployment rises - but it seems that the fear of the homelessness is out of proportion to the actual situation.
People are angry - they are more than incensed. They are furious. But it needs to be righteous. In your anger, Do No Sin.... This Scripture tells me that the feelings I am feeling are NORMAL - God Given - but I need to be careful in my anger not to Sin.
There is a undercurrent that is starting to rumble.....the feeling that someone will act out as an expression of his dissatisfaction with the Government.
This is one of the worst things we could do. It will give the Government an opportunity to marginalize those that feel this way - at least 1/2 the country and this feeling is growing. At the very least, the Government would ignore us as insane - at the worst, all your fears will be realized as the Government goes after your guns, your land, your very person.
Now - I am not saying that we do nothing....Hell no.
But study the Constitution - study the men that wrote it - study what their grievances were - Study HOW LONG they sent men to England to plead the Colonies' case. Study HOW LONG they endured before sending the Declaration of Independence.
People, as unlikely as it may seem, we are at the beginning of our Revolution to re-establish the Constitution.
An analogy would be a fire. If you can stop a fire at the beginning, the structure can be salvaged - but at a certain point - when it has gone too far, it needs to burn. Letting nature take care of itself with a good fire benefits the forest. I contend that if we want the Country we were promised - the Country we were given - its best to let it burn. Let this Government burn itself out - its well on the way and so much has already been spent, it might be impossible to salvage anything if we stopped it now.
I am willing to endure the pain of a Depression - of having the Government fail - because at the end....when the dust settles and we have removed those in power and this Government is toppled, all we will have left is the Constitution and we will send the power back to the States. We will only vote on the House of Representatives with the States sending its Senators....We will control our lives through our States with men and women that have to see us every day - L.O.C.A.L. C.O.N.T.R.O.L.
We will have given our children our most precious dream - Freedom.
Dont sacrifice our chance at Freedom by giving in to the Sin in your Anger.....
