The State of the Union

What is happening to our country? Our Constitution? Our Pride in being an American? The founding fathers of this country worked diligently at peril of their own lives, to draft what eventually became The Constitution of the United States. The basic tenet of our governing document was that each of us was born with unalienable rights bestowed upon us by a higher power, namely God. I have a hard time believing that the politicians who are sworn to preserve, protect and defend the constitution, can have a hint of their real duty when the majority of them refuse to allow the mention of God, Religion or a Power higher than themselves. The state of our union is in jeopardy.

“I sought for greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors, and her ample rivers. and it was not there; in her fertile fields and boundless prairies, and it was not there; in her rich mines and her vast world commerce, and it was not there. Not until I went to the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”-- Alexis deTocqeuville 1831

Think about how little goodness is really seen throughout our country today, especially in the younger generation. Hmmm, who is at fault for that failure?
