Restore America 101

What patriots find most alarming about the reelection of Obama is the feeling that we have lost America.

Recently, a pro football player committed suicide after murdering his girlfriend. The media blames guns and football for the shooting. They act as if the football player bore no responsibility, which is in keeping with Obama’s new America.

This is why we who cherish morals, decency, hard work and personal responsibility are so upset that Obama has four more years to further his decline of America.

Admittedly, the decline of America began long before Barack Obama. However, under Obama, America’s decline has been on steroids. He won reelection promising to punish the rich and encouraging Americans to indulge in an orgy of mediocrity featuring endless unemployment benefits, an unprecedented number of Americans on
food stamps
, half the country on welfare and free Obama phones.

Such is the new normal in Obama’s new America.

So yes, we patriots are heartbroken.

After serving in the Merchant Marines, my black dad earned a humble living as a day laborer. In 1956, he broke the color barrier into the Baltimore City Fire Department. The white firefighters hated my dad and did not want him at Engine 6. And yet, despite horrific conditions, dad won Firefighter of The Year two times.

Dad did not win because of lowered standards, Affirmative Action or someone deciding it’s the black guy’s turn. Dad won because he was the BEST! Such was a time when America celebrated excellence.

Have we totally lost that America?

What offends me most about the Obama Administration is that he continues to lower the bar of what it means to be an American. Given his reelection, one can only assume that a large percentage of Americans are OK with Obama’s ask-what-your-country-can-do-for-you-rather-than-what-you-can-do for-your-country new vision for America. Screw work! Just gimme, gimme, gimme!

Dad did not believe government owed him or his five kids the American Dream. With me at his side, dad marched with Dr Martin Luther King Jr. to assure that his kids would have an opportunity to pursue the American Dream. Today, far too many Americans believe the job of government is to confiscate wealth to divvy out the American Dream equally to every American.

When did we lose Dad’s America?

When did we become a country in which government and media celebrates immorality, laziness and covetousness? Occupy Wall Street thugs are declared heroes of a majority of Americans for demanding that government confiscate the earnings of achievers for redistribution. When did it become morally correct in America for government to confiscate and give away the harvest reaped by hard working citizens?

Were we asleep when America launched its War on Achievers?

Athletes who perform at the highest levels are inducted into the Hall of Fame. And yet, extraordinary success in the arena of finances is frowned upon and deemed evil. Remarkably, Mitt Romney’s extraordinary financial success was effectively marketed as a negative against him in the presidential campaign.

When did exceptional-ism in business become demonic in America?

Well, here is a dirty little universal truth that the gimme crowd may not be aware of. The word is reciprocity. Reciprocity means we mutuality give to/help each other. But when that relationship becomes one sided, the giver stops giving. How long will Obama get away with seducing new voters by taking from achievers to redistribute to non-achievers before the givers say, “Screw it” and stop working?

How do we restore America? The answer: We continue to Tea Party.

The Tea Party began when patriots looked behind the curtain of white guilt and media hype to see Obama’s overreaching, trashing of the Constitution and his socialistic/progressive agenda. Over the last four years, the Tea Party has evolved into countless organizations and a growing army of sophisticated political activists.

Obama winning reelection was the loss of a major battle. However, beware Obama and company, we have no intentions of surrendering our country or losing this war.

Future battles will include taking back our culture and educating dumbed down clueless Americans to the superior virtues/benefits of Conservatism over Liberalism.

And another thing – we MUST STOP being passive when democrats throw absurd character-assassination-grenades such as Republicans/Conservatives want blacks in slavery and women barefoot and pregnant. We must boldly get in their face and rebuke their vile, hate-inspiring, divisive lies.

I have also had it with black Americans being allowed and even encouraged to be racist. Black racists believe Authentic Blackness or “Racial Pride” means maintaining at least a minimal resentment against whites and our country. Racism is evil wherever it flexes its venomous tongue – time to call such people out!

So, I am ready. I am prayed up and my powder is dry. Let’s roll!

    I just loved your article on everything you wrote. Your father is not the only one who was treated badly, it happens to white people too. I get what you are saying tho. The fact that your father remained a good guy and did his best means he is a hero, and he showed them in the wisest possible way. It would make a great book. The fight is not over yet tho. I will not give up and hope others do not. America is worth it, and i believe Romney is a good guy. I thought Obama was until i guess i woke up.

    Thanks for the encouragement! I love the way you write about your dad! You were very fortunate to have such a great example. On a different note, Betty Porter is right about discrimination. All you have to be is different; it doesn’t matter how. But…the good news is, like you said, faith in God really does help you to rise above any negative circumstance. Keep the faith, Brother! And keep writing!

    Your father was a hero. Period.

    God bless him, for everything he gave you and your family.

    From a past op-ed:

    Imagine if Jesus, His Apostles, and Paul were apathetic and did not “reprove the world of sin?” Yet this is what “Christians” are called to do. (2 Timothy 4:1-5) It is apathetic to preach only what our Lord said in John 3:16 and not include what He said in the same breath through verse 21.

    Hebrews 5:12-14 – “For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that uses milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”

    This is not 1776, when America was permeated with Biblical moral virtue. America is currently permeated with “progressive political correctness,” which requires relinquishing Biblical moral virtue.

    In order to restore the Republic as our Christian Founders intended, requires the core Biblical foundation which was the motivating factor in how America’s Founders confronted EVERY issue, whether social, fiscal, national, and international.

    Restoring the “American Way of Life” for our descendants requires American citizens, those who are also citizens of the Kingdom of God, to begin to honor and obey their Lord’s call to become the Salt & Light they are called to be. To be “ambassadors” for their King, by preaching not only John 3:16, but what Jesus admonished in the same breath through verse 21. “Preaching” not only 1 Timothy 2, but 2 Timothy 4 must also be proclaimed.

    Charles Finney wrote: “The time has come for Christians to vote for honest men, and take consistent ground in politics or the Lord will curse them…Politics are a part of a religion in such a country as this, and Christians must do their duty to their country as a part of their duty to God.” …”God will bless or curse this nation according to the course Christians take in politics.”

    Until “We the sheeple” once again become “We the people” government is going to continue to become god, mommy and daddy. Keep voting for Marxists (masking as Democrats and RINOs) and their wish will be our demise. Reminder: The Constitution is to limit government, not enslave the citizens with cradle to grave mandates. Until “We the sheeple” begin to vote for those politicians who express this, we will continue down this path of a “progressive” Declaration of Dependence, and forfeit our “liberty from God” and the Declaration of Independence.
