All right for those of you loyal followers out here in the world wide spectrum, you all know by now, or should know that I wait for a little while to weigh in on things – hoping that they will blow over – hoping that people will start having faith in GOD and not themselves, but lately it has been getting harder and harder for me to see the faith in people.  People are falling short because they believe that they can do it on their own; rather than asking for God’s help!


So what is it that I am weighing in on exactly – well if you haven’t figured it out from the title then you should probably start paying a little bit more attention; and you should also read on!  This article is for you!


“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

–          John 1:1


In a lot of ways God and America go hand in hand.  If you follow the Word of God, then everyone is happy and no one is being punished or disciplined.  In the same way God’s Word is in the United States Constitution and it sets a precedent.  If we follow the founding fathers idea, everyone should be happy.  The biggest difference is this:  God’s word is perfect!  There are no flaws in His Words!  The founding fathers of the United States of America based the script of the Constitution off of the Word of God – knowing that they were flawed; they knew they would get things wrong.  Therefore they all prayed, and put their minds together and came up with: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”   Since the founding fathers knew that we were flawed, they put in to the equation a set of ten (10) amendments – sometimes, okay not sometimes, always referred to as the “Bill of Rights.”  Rights that were not explicit in the constitution, but none-the-less just as important as setting up a new government that was to be governed by the people.


Governed By the People


Did you know that the government (the President, Senators and Congressman) are not the government?  The government is you, and me!  We, the people, are the government!  We are the voice!  However; in the past few months and years – you wouldn’t know that we are.  This is why we vote.  The people of the United States send people to a capital city to make sure that we are heard as a voice. Every district in America has a voice and they need to be heard.  The problem is the people we are sending are doing what is on their agenda, rather than the agenda of their districts.  That is a problem.


The most pressing matter right now in the media; which ultimately defines our nation and our nation’s “needs” is gun control or the lack thereof.   The truth of the matter is all in the first and second amendment to the United States of America.


[Quiz Break]  What are the first and second amendments?



1st Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.


2nd Amendment: A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Make no mistake that I am a Christian – that I am a God-fearing Christian, family man.  Being that I am God fearing I trust that the Lord will protect me thin and thick; however, God put things in my life, our lives, in order to promote our safety and security.  Henceforth, the second amendment – the right to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.  These two amendments are the first two amendments for a reason.


Once the government becomes tyrannical (which it most certainly is moving towards right now), it starts to attack personal freedoms that are laid out in the United States Constitution.  Look at what is happening in our country today: Our government passed a bill that makes the Catholic business to have to pay for birth control for their employees; even though they are morally and ethically opposed to it – the government made them.  In my definition that is oppressive and tyrannical – please debate me on this! And now the government is trying to take away our guns; err set new limits on guns that make it harder and harder to get and hold and to control.  Here is the thing that the government is forgetting:  CRIMINAL’S DO NOT FOLLOW LAWS!!!!  The government is trying to make it that much easier for the government to control people – take away our guns, you take away our freedoms.


There are so many things happening right now in policy, that it is almost sickening…  I am afraid to go to bed at night sometimes to find out what I am going to wake up to the next day.  They are talking about taking my guns away, my civil liberties, and my religious freedoms.  They are making us pay “taxes” that will supposedly “make it more affordable” to have health care, but in reality it is really going to be that much more expensive.  Every-time the government gets their hands on something the price of that said item goes up.  Oh and have you had a paycheck yet this month?  Did you realize how much it went up?  Oh wait – it didn’t!!  I have like an $80 shortage on mine.  I don’t know about you, but that is a pretty extreme amount of money for me; and I am comfortably middle class.  Or so I like to think that I am anyway!  Let me live my pipedream!


Now, here is the real hard thing to stomach.  In light of the Sandy Hook shooting; I understand the media frenzy about gun violence, I do, I really do.  However; the point is that an isolated event like that is not something to hype over gun control.  Most people did not hear about this – and if they did they thought very little about it because somehow American children come before every other child in the world.  But at the exact same time that the shooting was happening in Connecticut there was a mass stabbing in China at a school.  You realize China has a no gun policy?  (Here is the link to that story: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2248054/China-stabbing-22-children-elderly-woman-stabbed-outside-primary-school-Chinese-knifeman.html.)  You see how well gun control helped there, huh?  I believe that both of the schools are tragedies and that I wish that you would join  me in prayer for their souls, and the souls of the mentally disturbed that did this heinous acts, but the truth of the matter is this: If one person had had a firearm; this could have been avoided.


What’s Next For America


America is the land of the free, and the home of the brave, not land of the enslaved and home of the weenies (even though we have enough of them)!  The fact is this: Americans need to get their heads out of their butts and look at what is really happening around their towns, cities, counties, and states.  If we do not stay vigilant the politicians are going to ruin our lives and take away our God given freedoms – our RIGHTS!


“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” – Benjamin Franklin 1759
