Why should I be proud to be an American? We live in a nation that allows the rich to get richer, the poor fall through the cracks of political
Morals, as they get poorer and no one cares, they say as did the bible,” The poor will always be with us” Wonder why? Does anyone care?
We send our boys to fight a battle that is not theirs in a country that is not theirs, to die on a foreign field all in the name of being loyal to our country, we fill the minds of the people with the idea that if we don’t go their then the enemy will come to us. Some s ay 911 proves that. I say bull. The enemy is always here in the old usa, the rich and powerful who pay there are games on a table far from the battle itself.
Political leaders who want give the family of service men and women enough to live on while their love ones are a way in war. A nation that will not give the service person help when they return. Where is the justice in that?
ARW WE A NATION OF COWARDS IN OUR OWN COUNTRY? We let our government tell us how to raise our children, jail us if we dare to punish one of them. We allow men in office( that we elected) to raise prices on nearly all goods and s services, while we do little but complain about it. Saying “what can I do?”
I want to say if this is in fact a nation for the people by the people, what people are we talking about? The rich and powerful ect. I say if the command man would stand up for their rights if if it meant giving up some comforts and leaving that comfort zone for a time. And stood together all this injustice would come to a stop.
Let us say that if we want the price of a certain product to be lowered the what. We will all stop using it, be in gas and oil or other things we need. Yes we could not go to work and yes many things would not get done. Stores would have no products and companies would only have half a staff and so on as the rest would be holding out to affordable prices. Soon they would have to change things to get the people moving again. If we quite using electricity and used candles and lamps for a time the price of electricity would go down real soon. Why should we suffer at the hands of the rich and powerful we are the power and should exercise it. We should do more than vote to show the leaders that we are serious about what they have done any are doing..
SAD BUT True: WE ARE re so frighten to do a thing for fear of what they will do to us if we rebel. In the old days the people had a civil war because of these partices by the leaders. Remer the Boston tea party.
Why can’t we fight at home for our rights, as we do in other wars, not with weapons of destruction, but with common science and stand together for god and right. I am sad to say that I belong to such a country. I have to ask myself why should we go to war for a country that is so unfair,
Now The Big Question Does God care? I think not!!
I think after forty years in ministry and all my Biblical studies, all my years of service. I have been able more than ever that the churches and god could care less, they fight the battle of the demo nationalism and see who can build larger buildings and have great teachers, I love to hear a great teacher as well, however I wish to God or some one? That we could really find the answers to the human need, the need to have some one care for them as the bible really teaches.
To love thy brother as thy self. If that is what we are doing , then we really don’t care about ourselves. instead we are filled with greed and power FOR self that we care not for another person even in our own families, don’t believe it. Look at the amount of dysfunctional families.
DO WE REALLY CARE? FOR ANYONE OTHER THAN OUR SELF?
