Is Liberalism Exhausted?

Liberalism is not exhausted or ‘gone out of style’ Promising people free stuff with other people’s money always is a perennial favorite. What has gone out of style is the concept of free enterprise, and defending the Constitution and our borders, especially among the GOP establishment.

Is Liberalism Exhausted?

Liberalism may be ideologically exhausted (though with Barack Obama elected to the White House twice since 2008 that's somewhat questionable), but IF it is, then why has Liberalism's program not YET been soundly defeated in Washington DC, and in Congress? Hmmmm.. good question. Could it be because the RINO GOP establishment is running 'dead last' in the same 'heat' with Liberalism; both completely out of ideas other than new ways to build government and spend the tax payers; money?
My gut tells me the GOP will end up doing exactly NOTHING about Obamacare, even if it captures the White House in 2016 (along with both houses of Congress). Too deep in the boodle to toss it out, and too bereft of original ideas, or the backbone to enforce them. Same goes with the illegal immigration scandal. The GOP will continue its schmoozing and double talk, and nibbling away at the process of bringing in Amnesty incrementally thru the back door. We have a corrupt government that serves the highest bidder, not the people of the United States or its Constitution.
A naïve and extremely simplistic description of what has gone wrong in this society. Instead of focusing on Technology and Millenial Males (and attempting to make them the ‘fall guys’ for what is happening) why not go to the root explanations of what’s gone wrong in our culture? Like, for instance, the sexual revolution, where fornication among many (if not the majority) of the young people begins in the early to mid teens. In a society where fornication reigns supreme, it is hard, if not impossible, to place any real value upon traditional courtship and marriage. “Why buy the cow if you can get the milk for free”, goes the old saying. Along with the sexual revolution, another cheapening factor in the man-woman relationship is divorce on a massive scale. When one in two marriages ends in divorce (and males are likely to find themselves plundered in the divorce court by biased judges who rule in favor of the female) why would ANY young male look forward to, or value, the institution of marriage? Also, 55 million aborted babies (many of whom are the first victims of the sexual revolution) has not only cheapened the value of human life in this country, it has cheapened the value of the relationship between a man and woman. If the sacred result of the union between a man and woman (which has historically been reserved to marriage alone), a child, is thrown away like so much garbage, what does that say about the worth of the relationship itself? Finally, please do not place the blame on this social meltdown solely at the foot of the males (more of the divorce court Judge mentality). The women must share total joint responsibility for the cheapening and degrading of the relationship between the sexes. Both sexes, and this culture in general, have TOGETHER totally rejected God’s standard of morality, and the proper relationship and responsibility of each sex to make a relationship (and culture) work. We are truly in moral ‘free fall’ and unless there is a return to God’s ancient ways- the Bible calls it REPENTANCE- this culture is doomed to fail.
World of difference between a BLUNDER and a LIE... One is a mistake; the other is a serious character flaw. A new anchor (who makes his business reporting news) who lies has basically lost the trust of his audience.
Light and darkness cannot co-exist in the same sphere of space. Either one or the other will dominate and win out. We are in the twilight of the American Republic, heading into deep night unless there is a turning.

Can Israel Survive?

Will Israel survive? Yes. God made irrevocable promises to Abraham 4,000 years ago, concerning both the land of Israel (it would belong to Abraham and his seed in perpetuity), and for his personal safety and the keeping of Abraham's seed (Isaac and Jacob): "he who touches you, touches the apple of God's eye", and "he who blesses you will be blessed, he who curses you will be cursed". An unbelieving, faithless world may scoff at those promises, but God is a promise-keeper, and those promises will be fulfilled. The nations of the world are pushing against a rock that is not going to be dislodged, and those who attempt to do so, the Bible tells us (Zechariah 12) will be severely injured. Israel will survive. The question is, will Western culture and the United States survive if it continues to line up with the enemies of Israel? That should be the real subject of this column.

The GOP will throw the 2016 Presidential election, using one of the "Three Amigos" instead of backing a genuine conservative, smaller government Constitutional candidate. Big money rules in D.C. Government has tripled in size and expense since Ronald Reagan... As far as Ronald Reagan being the cowboy "conservative" portrayed in this column, just another political myth. Reagan was in fact, the FIRST of the BIG GOVERNMENT 'budget busting' TRILLION DOLLAR deficit Presidents. Government power and scope greatly expanded under Reagan's helm. For instance, Reagan said he was going to abolish the Dept. of Education..... what actually happened was funding for, and the size of the Dept. of Education greatly increased during his two terms. Reagan talked a great talk, and he delivered his lines like the Hollywood actor that he was, but Reagan did not deliver the goods. The only thing the establishment GOP is now interested in is keeping its place at the table for divvying up the trillions of dollars of pork. It certainly isn't interested in representing the conservative wishes of the majority of its vanishing constituency. A progressive socialist in the Oval Office actually works to the GOP establishment's advantage; a progressive socialist POTUS is someone the GOP can conveniently point to as the scapegoat for government's problems as the Big Government, big spending express rolls on...
