Washington DC Tea Party

The Tea Party express is coming to Washington DC on 9/12.
Lets see how the media hides this as they do most other causes which celebrate non-liberal ideology.

Let there be no doubt.
We are in danger of losing our liberties.
The Declaratoin of Independence states that "... they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights..."
Those rightds are the liberties that we are so proud of and so many of us swore to defend. And they were given to us by God.

We can talk all we want and post dire warnings and cry and shout deprecations but that will not change a thing. As a Nation we have offended God and this is what happens; Israel suffered the same fate after being lead out of Egyptian bondage. We have abandoned the faith of our fathers and will suffer the consequences.

Abraham Lincoln saw perceivced the same danger and on March 30th, 1863, attempted to address a national failure through his Proclamation Appointing a National Fast Day.

I will reproduce this proclamation in part:

And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon; and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.

And, insomuch as we know that, by His divine law, nations like individuals are subjected to punishments and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war, which now desolates the land, may be but a punishment, inflicted upon us, for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole People? We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us!

It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.

Let us remember the words of wisdom and warning given to us by God in 2 Chronicles 7:14:


"...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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. "

I don't doubt the passage, but there are far too many atheists and God haters in this country for that to ever happen, especially in our ELECTED offices!

Then it is up to us to get rid of them; we are the electors, they are the elected.

Unfortunately, we are getting the kind of government we deserve. People realize that the government is a source of many benefits, freebies abound and people feel entitled to a free ride.

Yupper, thats why I capitalized the word "Elected". 2010 is just around the corner and that may be our last chance to correct what these asshats have done to this nation.

"Any Government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always count on the support of Paul."
