Within the large green package, there would be three smaller green boxes tied together. The first box would contain a pair of rose colored glasses through which the recipient would be encouraged to look at the economic gains made during the last six years of the Bush administration. The second box would hold an envelope containing a tax refund check for the next year --- activated only after the year’s taxes were appropriately filed. The envelope would also contain a letter stating that all tax rebates and programs which were put in place during the Bush administration would remain in place. The third box in the green package would contain a scroll announcing that the 378 billion dollars spent on the Iraq war to date would be returned with interest by United Nations’ members over the next ten years. In addition, the interest on this debt would be redirected into education, national security, and a host other needed areas.
Next there would be a huge white package containing a set of three books. The first book would entitled, Protecting America’s Borders, the second book would bear the title Defeating Islamic Fascism Around the World, and the third book’s title would be The Use of Humanitarian Aid Instead of Guns in the Third World.
Wrapped in the red package would be three huge, framed items. The first frame would hold a declaration ending legalized abortion in America --- the rescinding of Roe v Wade. The second framed item would be a picture of four adults whose mothers decided not to abort them at the last minute. These four people would consist of two men and two women, one a doctor, one a lawyer, one member of the clergy, and one president of the United States. The third framed item would hold a declaration that major breakthroughs (which ended the future ravages of cancer, diabetes, and a host of other diseases) had been made through the use of adult stem cell research without the use of embryonic stem cells.
Finally, Santa would leave a small blue box containing three dark blue envelopes. The first envelope would contain a decree that fathers from January 1, 2007 would love and care for their biological children. This decree would be backed up by a sovereign work of God, Himself. The second envelope would contain an announcement that a federal marriage amendment would be added to the U.S. Constitution on January 1, 2007. The third envelope would be a pledge stating that the Christian heritage of the U.S. would be honored and affirmed throughout the land for the remainder of our national history.
Well, that’s enough dreaming!
I hope you have a great time with family and friends this Christmas season. I also hope that the love and joy that exemplifies Jesus Christ will be yours in 2007.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
