The dust may have seemed to settle a bit over the past few days since the ruling on the government takeover of American health care came down, but I cannot help but think of the timing of the latest misuse of government power last week as we are less than a day away from celebrating the Independence Americans fought so hard to gain. We are slowly losing that freedom, and I wonder if we are aware of it? The early Congressional leaders of America had the wonderful habit of calling upon God Almighty frequently as this young nation struggled for freedom and thereafter. If was often the norm to call for a day of prayer and fasting, and Providence was evident upon this nation. We have now in the public square, through laws and apathy, left God behind, and we should not be surprised to see the results as they show themselves in the current policies of socialism and attacks on religious freedoms.
Chief Justice Roberts said in part that this was not to be taken as a ruling on the legislation since that is not the job of the courts. He said that it can be either good or bad legislation, but that decision was to be made by the American people at the polls if they don’t like the job their representatives were doing.
Thus the responsibility falls on the shoulders of you and me, the American voter. Do we go to the polls to vote for principles of freedom, free enterprise, religion, for life, to make our own decisions about how we live our own lives? Or do we throw up our hands in despair and sit at home thinking we can’t make a difference or “my vote doesn’t count”!
Benjamin Franklin was asked by a lady after he participated in the writing of the Constitution, “Well, Doctor, what have we got – a republic or a monarchy?” His answer rings in my ears today, “A Republic if you can keep it.” Today, as at other critical times in history, that challenge sits clearly in the air, as the very essence of the Constitutional Representative Republic is being chipped away by government overreach. There is little doubt that November 6th will be the most important election of our day an election that will determine your future and that of your children and grandchildren for years to come, and Obama and the anti-family, anti-faith radicals that are doing his bidding aren’t going to go quietly.
Last week was a vivid reminder about the responsibility of each citizen in America to act in a definite and responsible way to provide guidance for our country’s leadership through the ballot box. The condition in which we find ourselves cannot be blamed on anything other than the American people who in their selfish indifference and indulgence bestowed leadership on people who then misused the responsibility.
More of the same is headed our way unless people become educated about the issues and activated at the polls.
