What is our country becoming?

Let’s take a look at the communist countries of the world to see if this is where we would like to live. There are a few that come to mind off the top of my head; China, Cuba, and North Korea immediately come to my mind but there are more. In each of these countries there is great poverty and suffering. In each of these countries there are leaders that will only accept obedience to their regime. This includes much religious persecution, particularly for Christians. While Marxism and communism may sound good to some in theory, we can see from history that in practice they have been detrimental to freedom.

So, what does this have to do with us in America? We are a free country right? Well with things going the way they are we won’t be for much longer. Not only is our president proposing outlandish “stimulus packages” that will not stimulate anything, he is also placing a lot of power directly in the White House without the constitutional checks and balances that were put in place to protect the people. He is removing our freedom to worship in ‘government funded’ locations and setting up a ‘faith-based’ council to report to him on the doings of major religions. Hmmm, sounds like too much power to me. Wasn’t America founded on the concept of FREEDOM for the people and LESS government??? Not to mention, where is all this money coming from???

What is most appalling to me, and what no one seems to realize the implications of, is the new transfer of the national census from an independent organization to the White House. Many just say, “So what?” and go on with their day. What many don’t realize is that this will give Washington to power to control and falsify the elections. We already saw how the election was falsified in many locations through ACORN’s fake votes, or republican votes being thrown away. Now what will happen come the next election if the White House is in control of the census? Wouldn’t it be easy for them to say there are greater numbers of people in the liberal states, therefore giving those liberal states more Electoral College votes?? This thought horrifies me.

We need to speak up! No matter what side of the fence you may be on in politics, I think we can all agree that we want our country to remain free, right? I know I do! I want to have to freedom to practice religion wherever I want! I want to have the confidence that my vote counts and that the people still have a voice!


  1. I'm with you, Lucy...And appreciate you speaking up for our endangered freedoms not only as Americans but as Christians.

  2. Thank you for speaking up, Lucy! I agree with you wholeheartedly. I was very upset when a non-Christian was elected as President of our country. I have been praying for him for a long time and posted a plea last week for those of us Christians to pray more and with more diligence. This is why. He has been in office for less than a month and has alreday done so much harm.

  3. Thank you dear Lucy for an informed and intelligent post -let's all keep on praying!
