What is happening? Too many people do not bother to vote. Too many people who do vote only vote for what they can get out of the government. Too many people allow office holders to remain in office so long that they forget about what is right or good and think only of what can get them re-elected. Entrenched politicians and activist judges ignore the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and judicial precedence to enact their agenda, much of which is ungodly. Judeo-Christian principles are ridiculed and those who espouse them suffer discrimination. Lawlessness is so rampant among the people that government is able to limit freedoms and justify increased government power as a tradeoff for protection against the lawlessness. A weakened resolve invites terrorism.
Where are we headed? As we leave our spiritual roots more and more as a nation we are opening ourselves up to more despotism. That was the lesson of history in Europe during the last century and we evidently did not learn from that lesson.
