"Only America could have produced them all. No other place."
God has blessed us as a nation of diverse people. He has given us the ability to have freedom—and we have the responsibility to use it wisely. God has chosen to work with imperfect people, and He invites us to set aside our differences and work together.
Have you noticed that currently there is a demand for perfection? Anyone who has ever made a mistake in the past is now condemned, and everything they have ever accomplished is to be wiped out. The thing is, once you start wiping out people who have not been perfect, there is no one and nothing left! Who can stand? Who among us is without sin? No one is perfect, not one.
And yet, through God's grace, this rag tag group of people has accomplished much . . . .
“We are the land of Wild Bill Hickok and Buffalo Bill Cody. We are the nation that gave rise to the Wright brothers, the Tuskegee Airmen, Harriet Tubman, Clara Barton, Jesse Owens, General George Patton, the great Louis Armstrong, Alan Shepherd, Elvis Presley, and Muhammad Ali—and only America could have produced them all. No other place.
We are the culture that put up the Hoover Dam, laid down the highways and sculpted the skyline of Manhattan. We are the people who built up Miami from the Florida marsh, and who carved our heroes into the face of Mount Rushmore. Americans harnessed electricity, split the atom, and gave the world the telephone and the internet.
We settled the wild West, won two world Wars, landed American astronauts on the moon, and one day very soon we will plant our flag on Mars. We gave the world the poetry of Walt Whitman, the stories of Mark Twain, the songs of Irving Berlin, the voice of Ella Fitzgerald, the style of Frank Sinatra, the comedy of Bob Hope, the power of the Saturn V rocket, the toughness of the Ford F150, and the awesome might of the American aircraft carriers.
Americans must never lose sight of this miraculous story—we should never lose sight of it. Nobody has ever done it like we have done it.” President Donald Trump, July 3, 2020, at the base of Mount Rushmore
Perfect? Absolutely not! Do we need to continue to work together to make some changes? Absolutely!
And let’s not allow a small—and very loud, aggressive—percentage of people to completely destroy this nation from within!
As I see it, we can do two things:
1. We can pray.
"If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
2 Chronicles, 7:14
2. We can vote.
You may not like either of the candidates who will run for president in the fall.
But make no mistake—our next election is no longer between Joe Biden and Donald Trump.
It’s between socialism and freedom. We are teetering on a very dangerous tipping point.
"We cannot expect the Americans to jump from capitalism to communism, but we can feed them small doses of socialism, until they awake to find they have true communism."
– Nikita Khrushchev, Soviet Union, Communist party
This election could likely be our last chance to keep our freedom from falling into a socialism from which there is no turning back.
I vote for FREEDOM.
