Having read about 100 posts asking "what is wrong with this country" I feel compelled to comment. What happened today was the result of 2 people, not the country. Today's events are an unimaginable tragedy that rests on the shoulders of the criminal. It is not an indicator that something is wrong with the country.
What is an indicator that something is wrong with the country is that we routinely launch missiles from drones that blow up schools and no one says anything.
No that's all good. It keeps us safe ya know. Besides whats "a few dead school kids in another country" between friends? Safety is worth it. God would be proud.
Very accurate comparison. One person loses it and kills a classroom of kids and that is a real tragedy.
But an ongoing, well planned strategy of killing kids in other countries is ignored and minimized. Doesn't make the radar. Isn't even acknowledged in this country.
Sure isn't all over the news is it! But I bet it's on the radar in those countries where it's a threat they live with every day.
I think our wars all over the world, the war on drugs and the subsequent militarization of our local police forces is lending to an environment of violent extremism. The example is being set by leadership. There is something wrong with this country, but it is coming from those who aren't outraged by the violent example our leadership is setting.
Obama seized the opportunity to go after our guns again. Instead of going to the root of much of the violence in this country -- the crappy economy he has delivered that is stressing people out beyond belief -- he tries to put a Band-Aid on the problem with gun control.
I have noticed that every day now there is a suicide, a workplace shooting, a mall shooting, a spouse shooting.
The 20-year-old who took the lives of innocents today also killed his mother. Things that used to be abhorrent are now commonplace. God has been kicked out in favor of "anything goes."
Well, we are paying a stiff price for that. The bum in the White House is largely responsible for people going off the emotional cliff. The bum who deprives people of a means of paying bills, yet takes $40 million of our taxpayer dollars to spend Christmas in Hawaii.
He sickens me to my core and I wish him nothing but ill.
Nor do we see outrage over the millions of unborn babies we have allowed to be brutally murdered in our country everyday. Yeah, there's something wrong with our country.
"We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
John Adams (The Works of John Adams, ed. C. F. Adams, Boston: Little, Brown Co., 1851, 4:31)
"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments."
Charles Carroll, signer of the Declaration of Independence
"If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instruction and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity."
"If religious books are not widely circulated among the masses in this country, I do not know what is going to become of us as a nation. If truth be not diffused, error will be; If God and His Word are not known and received, the devil and his works will gain the ascendancy, If the evangelical volume does not reach every hamlet, the pages of a corrupt and licentious literature will; If the power of the Gospel is not felt throughout the length and breadth of the land, anarchy and misrule, degradation and misery, corruption and darkness will reign without mitigation or end."
"If a republican government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the divine commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the laws."
"God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever; That a revolution of the wheel of fortune, a change of situation, is among possible events; that it may become probable by Supernatural influence! The Almighty has no attribute which can take side with us in that event."
"The foundation of our society and our government rest so much on the teachings of the Bible that it would be difficult to support them if faith in these teachings would cease to be practically universal in our country."
"If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a Nation gone under."
"Without a humble imitation of the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, we can never hope to be a happy nation."
"Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed the conviction that these liberties are the gift of God?" - Thomas Jefferson
“It is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free constitution is pure virtue.” John Adams
“Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.” George Washington
“Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.” Charles Carroll, Founding Father
"Knowing that intercessory prayer is our mightiest weapon and the supreme call for all Christians today, I pleadingly urge our people everywhere to pray. ... Let us pray for our nation. Let us pray for those who have never known Jesus Christ and redeeming love, for moral forces everywhere, for our national leaders. Let prayer be our passion. Let prayer be our practice.
Robert E. Lee (1807-1870)-General of Confederate Army
Then we agree crime is BAD, in the tragic event today DEATH was the only punishment that needed to be exacted. Although the Criminal took the cowards way out, I for one am glad he did. However, I would have preferred that an officer capped him in full view of the main stream media.
So Kevin, speaking of political activism and limiting our federal government...yes or no to global policing and undeclared wars?
Your support keeps freedom alive!
