You have two choices. You can accept defeat and gloom and doom and then put your faith in government, or, you can take charge of your life and with God’s help make something better of it.
Our founding document begins, “We the people.” It doesn’t say, “You the government.” We are entitled to one thing and that is liberty. We are not entitled to other people’s money and the fruit of their labor.
There are rules of life which, if followed, will make your life better. Not everyone may wind up rich, but everyone can wind up standing on their own two-feet. For those in need we have families, neighbors and churches. But need should not be confused with wants. God has promised to supply all our needs, not all our wants.
If we want the America our parents and grandparents handed to us, we are going to have to take it back from the socialists and other radicals who want to remake this country in their image.
Turn off the broadcast news and start reading and listening to sources that tell you the truth. And then share it with your neighbors who still have Obama bumper stickers.
