If the reality hasn’t dawned on you by now, you may well be a leftist.

The truth is that I cannot recall in my lifetime when our government has been so corrupt, so filled with lawless individuals who only think of themselves and not what is truly best for Americans.

America has a government that is slowly strangling the liberty out of its citizens and even though there are plenty of conservatives who rail against it, work to change it, and understand what is coming if we fail, the difficulty is that those in our government (aided and abetted by the media) do what they want to do anyway, often in total disregard for the rule of law.  It’s not only maddeningly frustrating, but it goes against the very core of the Constitution.

America is a Constitutional Republic and I’m sure you know that.  As such, we elect individuals who are duty bound to uphold and protect the Constitution upon which this country is founded.  We do not elect individuals so that they will do what the perceived majority wants done.  That kind of government is a Democracy, which America is not.

Even Obama gets this confused with his remarks about 90% of Americans wanting stricter gun control.  First of all, he’s lying because that percentage is something he pulled out of the vapid environment in his head.  Secondly, it does not matter if 100% of Americans wanted greater gun control measures to be enacted.  That percentage has nothing to do with anything and he knows that, but simply refuses to acknowledge it.  The Constitution clearly defines the 2nd Amendment as the right to keep and bear arms and it shall not be infringed.  Simple.  Clear.  Definitive. Elected officials are supposed to do all in their power to protect, uphold, and defend the Constitution, not engage in every subterfuge they can think of to circumvent or overturn it.

We have a Congress that passed Obamacare without even reading it and now is secretly trying to exempt themselves (and their staffs) from it that very legislation they created.  They couldn't care less about us.

Our country is overrun with illegal aliens (No, they are not guest immigrants, Mr. Obama!), lawless Islamists, Communists, Marxists, and Socialists and others who want to see America destroyed.  It’s happening right before our eyes and it is the most frustrating thing I’ve ever witnessed because it seems that no matter what conservatives do, we cannot override the problem because no help comes from those who are duty bound to uphold the Constitution.

In the past few days we’ve witnessed bombs going off in Boston.  Days afterwards, while trying to find the one remaining suspect, the entire city was virtually shut down under unofficial Martial Law.  The worst part?  No one complained about it.  Overall, law enforcement was given high marks for temporarily eradicating the 4th Amendment.  Do people even think anymore?  Are they so concerned about their own safety that they are willing to have their rights removed without so much as a "but"?  Apparently this is the case, and you can be assured our government took notice...with delight.

We’ve also seen a Saudi national go from “suspect” to “witness” to “nobody,” but soon to be deported.  Why is he being deported if he supposedly has nothing to do with the Boston bombings?

We’ve heard Janet Napolitano testify before Congressional groups about this same Saudi national and it turns out that she lied.  Moreover, we have seen both Obama and Napolitano decide that they will no longer deport people who are illegally here.  This has forced the union for ICE agents to take Napolitano and the DHS to court so that a judge will force her to allow ICE agents to do their jobs!

We are witnessing one of the most disgusting, egregious criminal trials in recent history with Kermit Gosnell, the Abortionist facing 380 criminal counts.  Five of those counts are murder charges.  We have learned just how squalid the conditions were at Kermit Gosnell’s house of horrors abortion clinic in Philadelphia and we have heard testimony and seen graphic photos proving that as far as Kermit Gosnell is concerned, the life of an unborn child is absolutely worthless.

In all of this, as mentioned, the media aids and abets.  It tries very hard to place blame where it does not belong (on the right).  When the facts do come out (no thanks to this same media), talking heads do all they can to spin things so that somehow, the right is still to blame.

If I were a quitting man, I would say that we have lost the battle.  However, I know the truth and the truth is that even though things look bad, God is in control.  Even if the right ends up losing, the fact is that we must continue the fight for what is right.  God expects that of us and will empower us to do so.  He wins in the end anyway.

Looking at our world today is not a pleasant thing to do.  We are overrun by the emotional virtue of political correctness and the arrogant lawlessness that results from it.  Those people who are part of the PC arena are not interested in justice.  They are only interested in the nebulousness “equality” and “freedom,” as defined by them, not anyone else.

Because of the attitudes of many today, lawlessness is at an all-time high.  The most tragic part is that society is not at its worst yet.  The apostle Paul sums it up neatly for us in his second letter to Timothy.

But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,” (2 Timothy 3:1-4).

Are we there yet?  We are definitely on our way.  Stay strong.  Be resolute.  Trust in God.
