Corruption and Power

Former Presidential Nominee and conservative stalwart, Barry Goldwater once said that the "enemey of freedom is unrestrained power. The champions of freedom will fight against the concentration of power wherever it is found." America has prospered due in large part to the power of the human spirit being let free. Communist governments of China and Russia have repressed for centuries the human spirit and have seen the greatest waste of human potential this world has ever seen as a result.

Here lies the canundrum: Freedom is being threatened as we speak with compulsatory Unions financing our politicans campaigns, a government option on the table for health care, and abuse of power and corruption reeking from all parts of the federal reserve and treasury with the trillions of taxpayers money thrown around.
Yet, with all these freedoms being threatened, where are the American Citizens? Where are the revolts? The outrage? Anybody home? Obama supposidly has a 60% approval rating and we hardly get more than a few thousand people at these tea parties. I am reminded of a song I once heard with this the closing stanza.:
United States of America
Looks like another silent night
As we're sung to sleep by philosophies
That save the trees and kill the children
And while we're lying in the dark
There's a shout heard 'cross the eastern sky
For the Bridegroom has returned
And has carried His bride away in the night

America has forgotten God. We have seen this nation's morals slowly erode away for years, now we are seeing the fruition of this erosion. Erosion is slow, silent, and ultimately deadly. From the carefree 20's and the introduction of the birth pill to the Warren Court and removal of God from the public arena we have slowly lost one stone at a time, from the foundation of morality and freedom this nation was built upon.
