Life, Liberty, and The Pursuit of Happiness In Our Society

Updated on December 27, 2014

At one time in the past, we stood together for what was right and not wrong. At one time in the past, we stood united against an evil tyranny threating the very lives of the people of this great nation. At one time in the past, we believed in the sanctity and blessing of life, not for the murder of unborn children. At one time in the past, if you did not work you did not eat, now the people who do work are paying for the laziness of the ones who do not. At one time in the past, the very congress of our United States of America prayed to the Almighty God for assistance, now this is not ‘politically correct’ or it might hurt someone’s feelings. At one time in the past, America was a stronger nation, one nation under God, which was indivisible with liberty and justice for all!

America what has happened? Look at how far we’ve come from our roots! If you pray in schools today it is accused of being unconstitutional because of ‘separation of church and state’. The term ‘separation of church and state’ does not even occur in the United States constitution! It was coined in a phrase by Thomas Jefferson in a letter to one of his associates who happened to be a minister! Thomas Jefferson used the phrase because he wanted freedom FOR religion, not FROM religion. The first schoolbook ever to be used in public schools in America was the Bible. In 1781, the United States Congress funded the printing of the Bible text specifically for the use of American children in schools.

Still another example of how far we have come is abortion. The murder of unborn children is absolutely and utterly genocidal! There was a time when Americans planned out how they were going to have a family and how they were going to provide for them. Now if you become pregnant without being married you can just murder the child and everything will be okay. “After all it’s not a human anyway.” The moment the child is conceived it is a human life! This child has a purpose in life, and if you end it too soon you will never see his/her destiny come to fruition. In the year 2000 alone, the number of abortions exceeded the number of deaths in the revolutionary, civil, and world wars combined! How can this happen?

Another tragedy today is the huge gap of the people who work in this country to the people who don’t. I remember my great grandmother telling me as a child. “If you don’t work, you don’t eat.” I’m glad she’s not alive today to see the result of our poor stewardship. People who sit at home all day and do nothing can make as much as a person who goes out every morning working and toiling all day! American citizens are being punished because they are working! American citizens are being punished because they are providing for their family! How can this happen in the same country that once rewarded hard workers, and rewarded individuals providing for their families?

American citizens I am appealing to you! We have been given this great nation to take care of, and it’s being torn apart before our very eyes! We must remember where we came from and how we came from it. We stood united under God, under freedom and liberty. We stood for right and wrong, not left and right. I ask that we can only see what’s staring at us in the face. America has been the beacon of light in the world since the beginning of the nation. Don’t diminish the flame! Grab your torch! A fire burns more brightly when all the little flames are brought together! We stand united! Americans wake up! Let’s get America back to the roots! Back to where we came from! If not, I’m afraid it will be too late, and all of the work that the founding fathers and the citizens did at that time will all have been in vain. “If we cannot learn from history, then we are doomed to repeat its mistakes.” Don’t make that mistake.
