For I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and indeed, all is vanity and grasping for the wind, What is crooked cannot be made straight and what is lacking cannot be numbered." Ecclesiastes 1:14-15Our days are numbered, our time finite. We live in a world where evil exists and permeates our core. I wish I could say we are distracted by the events of life, by the fun, by the time spent frolicking in the meadow of pleasure; but we are not. Instead we are play idly by the train tracks as the locomotive comes steaming down the track. We live almost in a bubble, choosing to believe that our lives are directed by only ourselves and that the situation of life we find ourselves in live on in perpetuity.
We choose to believe that those leaders we elect want to serve our best interests. We believe we are different than Russia or Germany, no, tyranny will not elect itself here. We were born with a silver spoon in our mouths, we have God's protection!, we are American's.
Our moral compass is pointing inward, to ourselves and not toward God. Now, we sit by and continue to focus inward hoping to find ourselves as our freedom crumbles all around us. By the time we awake, we will awake to chains and bondage of a world devoid of a conscience.
First consider these words from the Patriot Thomas Jefferson:
“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 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.”
A nation that no longer enforces its laws its no longer a nation of justice. Congress could not pass the DREAM act, which would allow illegals to work for their citizenship, or more politically correct, 'earn' their citizenship. The failure to pass legislation is no problem for these leaders.
America's Attorney General Eric Holder, who is responsible for enforcing our laws, and Homeland Secretary Janet Napolitano, who is responsible for protecting our borders, came out and essentially said that they will no longer enforce laws that deport all illegal immigrants. Illegals are here to stay and live in America, only those who commit crimes will be deported.
From Fox News:
"Having failed in the legislative process, the Obama administration has simply decided to usurp Congress's constitutional authority and implement an amnesty program for millions of illegal aliens," FAIR President Dan Stein said. "This step by the White House amounts to a complete abrogation of the president's duty to enforce the laws of the land and a huge breach of the public trust. ... In essence, the administration has declared that U.S. immigration is now virtually unlimited to anyone willing to try to enter -- and only those who commit violent felonies after arrival are subject to enforcement."
