Not long ago, President Obama, in presenting his "American Agenda," was saying, "If we want to transform the country though, that requires a sizable majority." (Video Link).
That was then---this is now.
Although his notion of a sizable majority has changed, his obsession to "transform" the country has not.
Today, he and his administration are preparing to force a health care plan on our country that a majority of Americans do not want.
They resist it for many reasons including; it provides federal funding of abortions, it could bankrupt the country, will destroy the quality of health care in America and will further move America toward socialism and away from our founding principles.
Indeed his health care plan and apparent decision to use "reconciliation," or the "nuclear option," as it is sometimes called as a method to get the bill passed will "transform the country."
I wrote about "reconciliation" in a recent blog titled "Reconciliation: Good Word---Bad Word".
As our far left, so-called progressive President and those who enable him stand poised to "transform the country" using reconciliation, I felt we should take one more look at exactly what reconciliation is and why it is it a threat.
No one is any more qualified to explain it than former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich.
Yesterday he explained the matter in his newsletter. I recommend you read it.
I along with many of you am concerned about the direction of our culture and country. There are indeed those who are working tirelessly to "transform" it into something very different than the country that has risen to become the most prosperous, most free, most exceptional and most blessed country in the history of civilization.
Growing numbers of Americans are beginning to resist, not because we resist change, but because we resist the direction of the present change.
James Russell Lowell was once asked by the French historian, Francios Guizot, "How long will the American republic endure?"
Lowell responded, "As long as the ideas of the men who founded it remain dominate."
If we as a nation do not soon return our public policy to the Christian consensus of our Founding Fathers and the Biblical principles of law that have provided the freedoms we have enjoyed for well over 200 years, it will only be a matter of time before we lose those freedoms.
Patrick Henry told his contemporaries, "When people forget God, tyrants forge their chains."
May God help us during these trying times.
God bless you. Thank you for your encouraging words and financial support.
