America’s Golden Calf

Updated on May 3, 2010

Thousands of years ago God; or Yahweh as he was known then, intervened in the plight of his chosen people and delivered them from bondage. He chose Moses as his vessel of delivery on this occasion and following a very perilous journey he delivered to Moses a “Code of Conduct” by which his people should live their lives. This code of conduct was delivered to Moses atop Mt. Sinai and forever became known as the Ten Commandments.

Bible History has it that Moses went up onto Mt. Sinai to receive the Ten Commandments leaving the Israelites for forty days and forty nights. The Israelites feared that he would not return and asked Aaron to make gods for them. Aaron complied and gathered up the Israelites' golden earrings. He melted them and constructed the golden calf. Aaron also built an altar before the calf. And the next day, the Israelites made offerings and celebrated.

Moses returned from the mountain and upon seeing the calf, he became angry. He threw down the tablets upon which God's law had been written, breaking them. Moses burnt the golden calf in a fire, ground it to powder, scattered it on water, and forced the Israelites to drink it. The Lord instructed Moses to return to Mount Sinai and receive a replacement.

So, by now all of you are thinking; what’s up Patriot; are you turning from Partisan Patriot the relentless critic of the Obama Administration to Father Patriot the Biblical Scholar? Bear with me folks, there’s a method to my madness.

So from history we conclude the first Devine intervention occurred some 15,000 years ago since most historians date the Mt. Sinai encounter somewhere around 13,000 B.C. I contend the second Divine Intervention between God and his modern day chosen people occurred on July 4, 1776; the birthday of the greatest nation God ever gave mankind. Only through divine intervention could such a magnificent constitution have been conceived which served us so well these past 234 years.

Fast forward to today. What happened? How did we stray from reliance on this magnificent document inspired by God to once again returning to worshiping the Golden Calf of Biblical Times?

America erected its’ Golden Calf on January 20, 2009 as it inaugurated Barrack Hussein Obama. Since that date America’s descent into Marxism has occurred with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple!

This system had been tried over the past century in what came to be known as the Soviet Union. The lessons learned from those that implemented this plight upon the Russian people were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather than the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas than the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. The death of pedophile Michael Jackson received much more T.V. coverage than the death of the greatest health care system to world has ever known!

Then our faith in God was systematically destroyed. We moved from a Christian Nation built on the foundation of our belief in the Ten Commandments to an eclectic collection of religious sects none of which were to be held in high regard. In fact our newly crowned king has proclaimed that in spite of all our historical reference to the contrary America is not a Christian Nation.


And what about this modern day Golden Calf America erected on November 2, 2008? The speed in which he is dismantling this Republic over the past 15 months has been truly amazing! His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more than another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Weimar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

But the single sign worth pointing to in order to corroborate America’s shift from Capitalism to Socialism is the government takeover of General Motors. Following the takeover the Golden Calf commanded that GM's president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, in the land of "pure" free markets, America’s first King now has the power, the self-given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will.

So during this Easter Season; a season in which individual hope for redemption reigns Supreme I ask you to Pray for America’s Collective Redemption. Just as Moses was given the second set of the 10 Commandments following his angry outburst upon discovery of the Golden Calf, pray that God once again will spare his people from destruction and deliver us from the cationic trance under which the majority of this nation still labor from the Golden Calf!

      Patriot, I love the connection you make. I have often thought about the parallels in the journey to Jordan and crossing the Red Sea to the crossing of the Atlantic and the land of America. Your hub gets my mind going...... Great job!

      We definitely need divine intervention once again to save us from this destructive path upon which Hussein Obama has placed this once great nation!

      Patriot, I like the way you used the Bible history of Moses and compared it to the mess our country is in today thanks to Obama. We do all need to pray for our nation because the future is certainly unknown and doesn't look good. Great hub.

      Once again thanks my old friend. I got the idea from the season and just went where it took me. All evil eventually ends up in the lap of this administration!

      Happy Easter

      Partisan, when I began reading this, I could not help but to wonder if I seeing another side of Partisan! Once you put all the pieces together I was relieved to see you have not lost your focus of the problems we face in our great land.

      Of course these problems did not begin with Obama, but he

      has put the progressives agenda in high gear.

      Happy Easter, and say a Prayer for America...God help US

      That's their main tactic; if you can't out debate them call them racists. That stops most people dead in their tracts. Hopefully enough of those that are intimidated out of their protest will still show up in November to protest in the most effective way.

      Good but scary hub here. I had never looked at things from this perspective. I agree with what you have laid out here. Finally, some of the sheeple are lifting their heads to watch the destruction that is being worught upon us by the one party rulers now filling our capitol. Sadly, because of the slanted coverage of the protests by the MSM, many actually believe the crap about folks like us being racist haters. I know some people other than the protesters are angry, but a racist label can ruin your whole life and they have been bullied into staying home out of fear. Thanks for this hub, and HAPPY EASTER!!!!!
