As November approaches there are many who have determined that if Obama is reelected the American experiment is over. If Romney wins, the American experiment will be over, just not as quickly. If Obama wins the government will use force to implement its policies and there will be blood in the streets. If Obama loses the result will be called racist, and riots will break out, bringing blood to the streets. The two-party system is unsalvageable, and therefore must be eliminated. There is no saving the party system, no saving the GOP, and no saving America save for a bloody revolution.
I refuse to be a fatalist of such magnitude.
The slide towards destruction facilitated by progressives in both political parties has become a nearly insurmountable battle. Simultaneously, our moral character has been in steep decline as evidenced by the slaughter of the unborn, and the dismantling of the family unit through divorce, the liberal conditioning of our children, and disregard for the sanctity of marriage. The Supreme Court has told States they can't defend themselves inside their borders against an invading force of illegal aliens, Justice Roberts has told us that the federal government can mandate anything they want as long as it attaches a penalty and calls it a tax, Roberts also told us that we are a democracy, not a constitutional republic, so the rule of law no longer applies, only the vote at the ballot box. Mob rules. Majority wins.
I refuse to believe that there is no hope.
Islam perpetrated the stoning of Christians in Dearborn, Michigan and the police stood by and watched. Iran claims it has ballistic missiles that can reach every U.S. target in the Middle East. Europe is on the verge of economic collapse, and Christians are being slaughtered in the name of Muhammad worldwide.
I refuse to concede that the world is on the verge of collapse, or that tyranny will dominate our land.
I believe the Republican Party can be turned around, I believe that an evangelical revival may be upon us, I believe that Israel needs us now more than ever and we need to stand with her, and that the number of Muslims rejecting Islam and turning to Christ will continue to occur in record numbers. We can turn this around. I am an optimist. In the end good will triumph.
However, I am also a realist, and my guns are loaded - just in case.
Only 3% of the population fought against the British in the American Revolution. The government may have bigger guns, but we have more of them.
God help us as we enter uncharted territory.
