    I could go on, and in fact, INVITE you to add to the list of things going on in America at alarming rates. Rates that single anarchy is aproaching at a fast clip!

    You tell me, is America on a downward spiral that is beyond being saved? Have we gone so far down the road that getting back is next to impossible! Do you fear for your children and grandchildren? Do you fear for your financial future? Are you disgusted with our public leaders unwillingness to get along and represent the people rahter then their own interests?

    Can this be a sign that America is truly close to second or third world status?

    All these questions and more, can be and should be discussed, and I invite you to share your thoughts -GOOD or BAD - and what you see as the end game to all this chaos and growing anarchy!

    rd2, I can remember when a child..., what was expected at home was expected in school and was expected by the community at large. That's not so anymore.

    I am of the opinion that America is about ready to reap what we've sown for the last forty years and that's so sad. Every morning I log onto World Net Daily, the Drudge Report, Fox News and the carnage is so depressing. The liberal media spends their air time praising our liberal administration so I don't bother with them.

    Just this morning I read where 22 billion has been bilked by doctors out of Medicare. That 16 year old kid in Pennsylvania slicing up 21 or 22 of his classmates. Black Mob violence. Drugs flooding our country from the Cartels..., and the list is endless.

    In my opinion we're beyond turning this country around. To many outside influences causing too much trouble. The Boss Hogg's we elect are only concerned about their re-election.

    I read this morning where North Korea has executed one of their top officials with a flame thrower. That's amazing! That's hard to believe. Also, they have the ability to explode one of those EMP bombs over this country. Let something like that happen and the fall out will be horrendous.

    ...we're in deep Kimchi.

    The spiral is almost complete. We went over the edge a long time ago. Next up, the Rapture.

    while I feel we have some real debilitating problems, I am reluctant to depreciate this country ......too much potential, too many intelligent & innovative people. We just need to right the ship.

    And Lord, would you please let it begin in me?

    Those who know...

    ...that Zaac and I agree on very little; HOWEVER, I see this nation on life support. Tom, I'd love to see revival come and I'd ask that it start with you as well as me! Still, as I look around, it looks like we may have crossed the Mason-Dickson line!:tear:

    The world's economic standing is based on the US Dollar value. Do a google search on the Double Eagle Project.

    In part, "warning today that President Putin has ordered the immediate implementation of “Project Double Eagle,” which when fully realized will cause all global energy supplies to be purchased in gold thus, in effect, ending the US Dollar reign as the global reverse currency and collapsing both the United States and European Union economies".

    (Sorry, I can't help but be a bit sarcastic here)
    ...in the meantime, our Administration is planning to attack this idea and Russia with a 150 multi-megaton blast of wet noodles.

    All of this really only matter when we focus on our earthly citizenship more than our heavenly one.

    'Don't look on the visible, but the invisible because the visible things are temporary and the invisible are eternal. The church has been through this and more before - the true church will survive and thrive even if the stars and stripes falls to the ground and is trampled in the dirt.

    Amen! :thumbs: This country is but a fleeting second in a sea of time we cannot begin to comprehend. This is not a God ordained theocracy and our business is not about waving flags and pledging our undying devotion to something that has become an idol to many.

    My citizenship is registered with my Savior in Heaven and I will spend eternity wherever He puts us! Let the condemned have their moment in eternity, because it is all they will ever have! Let us try to rescue as many as possible!

    It is the easiest thing in the world to be pessimistic, and it is also the least American thing to be.

    We look at all the terrorist attacks, the school violence, the debt, the seeming endless onslaught by the left on the Constitution, and wring our hands crying out, "O woe is us!"

    For those, I have a message: Get over it!

    Kurt Schlichter, former stand-up comic turned political commentator, said recently,
    The same attitude can be adopted by Christians. Yes, there's ugliness, unfairness, conniving, political hackdom and hidden agendas afoot in the world. That's because this world, for now, is in the hands of the enemy.
    2 Corinthians 4, NASB
    3 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,
    4 in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. [Emphasis added]
    Schlichter provides an excellent synopsis of our situation:
    Who's in control? To what end? And what are we to do in the meantime?

    No, America is not lost, but even if it were, so what?

    Moved. Obviously NOT a "Baptist-only" discussion topic.
