Writer mourns loss of country

Wednesday, November 21, 2012 — On Nov. 6, the Shining City on the Hill, the hope of millions of Americans since July 4, 1776, is no more.

After 236 years of existence, a new country emerges, run by secular progressives who reject our Constitution. This is what we stood for and who we were as a nation.

What is rising from the ashes is a country that few of us will recognize, like or learn to accept.

The Obama campaigns slogan was “Forward” which was the Communist Party motto and it resonated with so many ignorant Americans. This will plunge us into many years of darkness from which I doubt we will ever recover.

The welfare dependent Americans, unions and illegal aliens have chosen for the rest of us the dark path of serfdom, big government and socialist utopia.

Who would have guessed that Americans were as ignorant and irresponsible as to choose fiscal destruction over fiscal sanity for their children and grandchildren, dependence over personal responsibility and self-reliance and secularism and communism over faith?

Today I mourn the loss of my country. Mediocrity, sloth, godlessness, dependence, cowardice, using the law selectively or ignoring it and hopeless corruption will define our new country. Only God can save us now.
