    Fourth of July 2015 that makes 239 years our country became an independent free nation. They called it a republic. What is a Republic, a Government in which the power resides in elected individuals representing the citizen body and government leaders exercise power according to the rule of law. The rule of law is the legal principle that law should govern a nation, as opposed to being governed by arbitrary decisions of individual government officials. It primarily refers to the influence and authority of law within society, particularly as a constraint upon behavior, including behavior of government officials. A Republic, a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by representatives chosen directly or indirectly by them.
    That is what was established 239 years ago. Currently, our nation has seen a President who rules by Executive orders. A Supreme court which instead of interpreting laws is arbitrarily ruling based on the biased belief of the individual jurist rather than the rule of Law.
    We are fast approaching the loss of many freedoms. Freedoms strictly laid out in our Constitution and Bill of Rights. These rights which men have fought and died for are quickly being eroded by corrupt men and women who were elected to represent the people. A government of the people and by the people is becoming a government ruled by the elite who believe theirs is the only power and only view that counts.
    We the People of these United States need to stand firm against this tyranny. We who are Christians that is who truly believe on the Lord Jesus as our Lord and savior need to stand firm on God’s word. We need to speak out about the moral depravity which is occurring in our nation not say it is okay because it is the law. We need to tell others about the Love of God for mankind. But God also the HE wants us to Live by His rules and His laws and turn from our sinful ways.
    Many attend church but live like the world during the week. Many have turned from God and want things their way. We are in a time of the church of the rights of the people not the will of God. Some churches that is a remnant of churches in this nation still hold to the truth. But our nation has quickly changed and if the moral decay doesn’t end soon our nation will no longer be a Republic! The sacrifice made by those founding Fathers of this nation will have been for naught. The countless men and women who have given life or limb or both will have meant nothing. It is time we as believers take a stand against the tyranny we must speak out for God and His will and way. It is not judging to Speak God’s will it is our right given by the Constitution of this Republic and we need to pray for a revival in this nation but while praying we must be willing to speak out for God and His will and way otherwise our Great nation will fall. This 4th of July those who are truly God’s children need to pray for us to truly be “One Nation Under God Indivisible with justice for all.”

    Right! They sow their seeds during the week and go to church to on Sunday ONLY to pray for crop failure! The trouble is, too many seeds have sprouted and now "we the people" pay them to live at home, get tattoo's, get fat and vote democrat in order to keep themselves in the class of the "entitled!" What a shame! :BangHead:

    And before you jump me, I am sure their are many republicans that do the same! However the votes for Obama wold speak to the contrary of that. No one wants a GOP candidate in office, because they just may have to give up the plush life and return to work! Of course, under Obama, work barely pays enough to give one incentive to get off their rear ends and go to work!
