The State of the Union Address

disclaimer: If you find the mention of God or religion offensive, skip this post. If you are 'my country right or wrong', better skip it too.

Talk is cheap. As the old commercial said, "Where's the beef?"
Every administration tells you the happy, happy, joy, joy but fails to tell you the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
Things were not okay under Bush or Obama or Trump and none of them are the messianic figures they would have you believe they are.
In my estimation being a little better than bad is still not good enough.   A nation should be righteous.
 "How blessed is everyone who fears the LORD, Who walks in His ways..."..Psalm 121
And Psalm 33: 12
 אַשְׁרֵי הַגּוֹי, אֲשֶׁר-יְהוָה אֱלֹהָיו
 This is: "Ashrei(happy) ha goy(the nation) asher(whose)(then the name of God) God is the Lord".
 Is America happy? Is it righteous?
Does America fear God?  Some, but today fewer and fewer and overall I don't think so.
If we are not righteous will he bless?    Consider that.
America is shoving God into the closet.
 Ecclesiastes says:"What has been will be again,
    what has been done will be done again;
    there is nothing new under the sun."
 Things go in cycles. Nations rise, fall and new nations rise in their place.
Whole civilizations fall while others rise.
Sumer, Babylon, Assyria, Persia, Greco-Syrian, Roman, Britain... all once mighty empires now fallen.
 It was once said that the "sun never sets on the British Empire."
Well, baby, it's twilight and getting darker by the minute.

 I am not Republican. I am not a Democrat. I find both crooked and corrupt, but I find a lot of truth in what Dr. Paul has to say so I am sharing it.


 
 
Post Script after the Address Tuesday night:
Though I am neither Republican or Democrat I will say I was deeply ashamed of the way the Democrats acted during the speech.
They sneered, sat still, disrepected families of children murdered,  heroes, wage hikes,etc.
There was no mistaking the utter disrepect and contempt for Americans.
Normal people do not react that way. It was horrifying to see and for the first time I realized that there is something else going on with these people.  
Something is very, very wrong there.

  1. This is not the world I grew up in !
    The campaigning that led up to the last presidential election was a real "eye opener" !
    The flagrant,wide spread lying/cheating/under-handed tactics,with NO remorse,was horrifying and disgusting.
    Americans,in general,are good hearted,hard working,loyal,family-oriented and patriotic.You are right,however,that straying from God in our everyday life creates chaos,in every way.
    Thank you for another thought provoking post !
    Be well,my friend
