America on Fire

We live in a time long prophesied of, but very disconcerting to be living in ... the world is on fire. But more so, America is also on fire due to liberal policies out of control; Barack Obama siding with terrorists and criminals on a consistent basis, and a people easily riled into violence with a few well-placed words by Barack Obama, Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson.

As soon as a black thug is shot and ends up dying the activists under the control of Sharpton and Jackson leap into action. They travel to the city where the person died and burn it to the ground. Because Barack Obama refuses to draw a firm line in the sand as to what is right and what is wrong, race issues are much worse in America than they have been in a very long time. And ISIS has his sights firmly fixed on destroying America and Israel.

We have a U.S. Supreme Court violating the 10th Amendment at every turn, rewriting Obamacare so they could declare it a tax, which Obama's Solicitor General vehemently declared wasn't so.

Barack Obama and the liberal left continue to side with terrorists over Americans, illegal aliens over Americans, and are attempting to destroy the Republic and replace it with communism. Really, you can't believe anything else if you've been paying attention at all.

Crime is on the rise in Baltimore, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles ... all cities under liberal controls. Sanctuary cities have also seen a rise in violent crime, because those sheriffs made the decision to not enforce the law.

Liberal hysteria is at a fever pitch trying to erase all aspects of the South in the Civil War. I am forced to repeat the words of George Santayana: Those who do not learn from history are forced to repeat it. If liberals are successful in erasing our Civil War, then we will certainly, at some point, repeat the problems that led up to it. History is to be learned from, not erased.

But if you can pull back from all the corruption and political machinations it comes down to the American family. There is an all out effort to utterly destroy marriage and the family headed by a mother and a father. Without substantial family units comprised of father, mother and children, America is descending into chaos driven by the liberal agenda.

I refuse to mince words, the liberal agenda believes children belong to the government and not their parents. This is NOT how God intended families to be. Our family units here are patterned after our eternal family unit. We must fight to keep those families strong. Otherwise, we see things beginning to degrade into what is occurring above.

Planned Parenthood, through a series of videos, has thoroughly explained how they "crunch" babies heads so they can protect the organs and tissues to be sold to research facilities. The cavalier way they discuss the wholesale murder of babies is not to be believed, but sadly it is what is happening. How did we come to this in America? I assure you, the breakdown of the family unit produced this and the likes of Josef Mengele are alive and well in Planned Parenthood and abortion doctors.

As you can find on this blog written of so many times, there are four things families can begin doing today to strengthen the family; building family bonds that will be unbreakable and would turn society around within a generation or two. 
  • Families must work together; teaching their children a strong work ethic.
  • Families must learn goodness together; leaving that job to the schools has produced an apathetic, self-entitled generation that is incapable of critical thinking. You must be responsible for teaching your children morals and values.
  • Families must read good books together. In reading together you teach your children to think outside of the box they are put in during school. Their minds, creative abilities and entrepreneurial tendencies are expanded and they are educated in the process.
  • Families must pray together, morning and night. In invoking the blessings of heaven morning and night you call on a protection and strength that cannot be found anywhere else. Pray to keep your family strong and together, and never forget this step.
I have repeated these steps ad nauseum, but I continue to do so because the breakdown of the family is what is causing this unholy mess in America. Nearly fifty percent of babies are now born to single women. In New York City the highest percentage of babies that are aborted, murdered really, are black babies. We simply must fight back by making our families stronger, negating the liberal message completely.

The Proclamation on the Family is an inspired document that gives a blueprint that will produce strong families. It begins:

WE, THE FIRST PRESIDENCY and the Council of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, solemnly proclaim that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children. 

ALL HUMAN BEINGS—male and female—are created in the image of God. Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny. Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose. 

IN THE PREMORTAL REALM, spirit sons and daughters knew and worshipped God as their Eternal Father and accepted His plan by which His children could obtain a physical body and gain earthly experience to progress toward perfection and ultimately realize their divine destiny as heirs of eternal life. The divine plan of happiness enables family relationships to be perpetuated beyond the grave. Sacred ordinances and covenants available in holy temples make it possible for individuals to return to the presence of God and for families to be united eternally. -- Read More

I encourage you to read the rest, whether you are Latter-day Saint (also known as Mormon) or not. The blueprint is astounding and truly repairs the ills of the world, and most certainly America. If all adults would take seriously the condition of our nation and begin building family units once again -- strong family units with a father and mother at the helm -- America would be saved.

If we hope to save America, this is the path we must follow. If we do not and our society is further degraded because of the breakdown of the American family, we will never be able to get America back on solid footing. The life you lived growing up will be denied to your children and grandchildren. The opportunities you enjoyed will be denied to them as well. Is that what you really want?

I can't believe that anyone still ruled by common sense would buy into the liberal agenda without understanding the cost to families and especially children. Why would you willingly hamstring your children, guaranteeing them a less brighter future than the one you enjoyed.

America is a blessed land and our mindset is so unique to the rest of the world. This experiment that began over two centuries ago has flourished and grown into a world power. But when government becomes the answer to everything it is the beginning of the end. Begin in your own homes, strengthen your families, and let us build America back into Ronald Reagan's shining city on a hill. We were created to be a beacon to the world of freedom and liberty, we cannot let liberal progressiveness destroy what was once the greatest country in the world.
