Happy 4th of July

04 Jul

Even though he recognized the 2nd of July to be our true day to celebrate, did John Adams foresee a time in our future when our Country would be assailed by errors, follies, and vices?  Did he predict a time in our Country when we would elect a foreign born racist who hates us so much as to produce such corruption, venality, immorality and division, as to destroy us?  And did he not also give us the prescription to correct ourselves, as well as predict the coming struggle and victory over our current detractors?

“…It may be the will of Heaven that America will suffer calamities still more wasting, and distress yet more dreadful. If this is to be the case, it will have this good effect at least. It will inspire us with many virtues which we have not, and correct many errors, follies and vices which threaten to disturb, dishonor and destroy us. The furnace of affliction produces refinement, in States as well as individuals…But I must submit all my hopes and fears to an overruling Providence, in which, unfashionable as the faith may be, I firmly believe.” ~ John Adams, July 3, 1776 (to wife, Abigail) 

May God Bless America.

    During these times, people were living under tyranny, they learned human nature the hard way! The Founders were honorable people with an idea for a nation that they knew could only be fostered by an honest God fearing people. They didn’t have a crystal ball or magical tea leaves to gaze into and see the future, they knew what would happen when a populace got complacent and stopped monitoring and managing those chosen to govern the people.

    Our status could be reversed, but are the people willing to pay the severe cost at doing so?

    Soffitrat, the past few weeks Mary and I have been reading comments in dozens & dozens of articles, she is on Facebook daily. The anger, boldness and threats displayed against the regime by the vast majority of people in these comments has been surprising (pleasantly so I might add). In the past we seldom saw such talk but people are beginning to shed their fear for anger.

    Americans are at a breaking point I believe. It isn’t going to be pretty for either side when they snap.

      That is why the timing is such as to collapse our economy at a precise time. Let them eat cake is their mantra. Or will be.
