Not Morning In America, But MOURNING In America

Yes, I will recognize that it wasn’t Reagan’s Morning in America that was the result of Tuesday’s election, but half the country is in Mourning in America.
There’s a lot that can be said about this past Tuesday’s election but we’ve all heard the blather and blaming ad nauseum by now.
I believe this election spoke unequivocally about the depth of wantonness in the souls of at least half the electorate. Half the voters chose the love of nation and for the good and benefit of their fellow citizens. And by a razor-thin edge, they lost.
The other half proved that the NEA successfully completed their carefully plotted hit job on the American Public school system. A crop of illiterate, feel-good, American Idol addicts that, in the greatest information age known to man, chose to be vacuous and vulnerable to every wolf in a designer suit and a paltering promise on his tongue.
People who displayed chosen blindness, deafness and selfish self-serving behavior, they were voting for instant gratification, a big papa, a genie in a lamp, Santa Claus. And make no mistake, what we sow, we reap; nothing is free. The myopic, gluttonous, Me-first generation will reap what they’ve sown, in slavery to big Papa?
And as they refused to heed our warnings, so will their cries for help be unheeded.  
A friend sent a quote to me, which was so spot on I have to share it:

Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the ‘new, wonderful, good society’ which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean: more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.

~Marcus Tullius Cicero

I concur — but, let me add, I also hold Caesar culpable.
Peter Hitchens (conservative brother of the late Christopher Hitchens) wrote the following in conclusion of the election of Obama: “And now the US, like Britain before it, has begun the long slow descent into the Third World. How sad. Where now is our last best hope on Earth?”
I believe the last, best hope for this world still lies in America. But it’s time for some soul-searching. If those of us who knew what the truth was and failed to share it with our neighbors because we assumed that believing was all that was required to prevail … we were tragically wrong. Conservatives do NOT have a platform problem, we have a communication problem. It was the reason we lost this race and it will continue to be the reason for many more loses if we fail to correct one major flaw: We love to use the name of Reagan, but fail to share the same as Reagan.
He knew his plan was the right one for America … and he never backed down from that. What he DID do was, as the Great Communicator, find a way to tell those on the opposing side: Our plan is good for YOU and good for all Americans … come join us!
We know our plan is good (I hope) … now let’s work hard for the next four years to communicate that plan.
Let’s honor the Gipper’s memory … and bless America again.
Let’s turn our mourning … into morning once more, in America!

    God gives beauty for ashes. We’ve got a bunch of ashes. Help, Lord.

    Our one great hope is that The Kings of King still rules over the affairs of men. He laughs and scoffs at those who think they can rid him from our world. My his mercy be great to those who call on His name from a pure heart as we go through these next few years! And may we see a revival in our land that will make us once again the Hope of the world.

    Who’s mourning? Another four years of Obama is very likely the best thing that could happen to America. We know according to Yahweh’s sovereignty that he’s exactly what America deserves. “…In order that the living may know that the Most High is ruler over the realm of mankind, And bestows it on whom He wishes, and sets over it the lowliest of men.” (Daniel 4:17).

    Consequently, Obama is also what America needs. “Needs for what?,” you ask. To further humble Americans and hopefully turn enough of them back to their God so that we can take this nation back from the non-Christians and antichrists.

    Additionally, after this election and the previous 224 years worth of constitutional elections (that have only produced a more ungodly, less Christian, and more enslaved America, regardless who’s been elected), hopefully we’ll finally figure out that we cannot vote ourselves out of the mess we’ve made of America, we must repent our way out, beginning with our national idol. “And, what’s that?,” you hopefully would like to know. Well, prepare yourself because most people don’t want to really know the answer and would rather stone the messenger. But, here goes anyway. Our national idol is the humanistic (per the Preamble), antichristian (per Article 6), polytheistic (per Amendment 1) U.S. Constitution. Don’t believe it, take our Constitution Survey at by which you will receive a free copy of the 85-page “Primer” of “Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective.”

    Until Christians deal with this idol, the genesis of everything wrong in America today, America will only continue down her present road of moral degradation and national destruction. NOTHING else will fix the problems we face today.

    wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

    Isaiah 61:
    4 ¶And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.

    Jeremiah 51:20: Thou art my battle axe and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms;

    Revelation of John 18:11: And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:

    Matthew 13:
    40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
    41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
    42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
    43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
