So, Sen. Rubio has confused and divided the GOP Senators in order to gain passage for a bill that will suppress GOP registration and voting in the next election and possibly permanently. And why? To obtain passage for a bill that alleges to target a demographic that comprises 8% of the electorate 3/4 of which votes for the Democrats because of the free stuff they obtain from them. And that demographic will continue to vote D, because they actually don't care about legalizing the illegals. So he's demolished the GOP for nothing. Thanks, Marco. Well done.

Well, it fits the times. America has become corrupt. She has swallowed the poison pills handed to her by the Marxists and embraced promiscuous sex, self-absorption, self-promotion, materialism, cynicism and unbelief. Now she is aiming to trash the heritage of liberty she obtained from Christ (yep, that's where liberty comes from) and replace it with the same, rancid philosophy that murdered 200 million of its own citizens during the 20th century. The outcome will be poverty and obscurity, oppression and death.

The Almighty is being asked to heal and redeem this nation; in order to accomplish that, He has to humble her and turn her citizens back to sanity. In order to accomplish THAT, the nation has to crumble and the citizens have to feel deep need. So the path to obscurity is also the path to redemption -- because the believers among us have asked, and asked repeatedly.

So, here we go on the Nantucket Sleigh Ride to poverty and tyranny. The end result will probably be widespread repentance and religious revival. We'll return to our roots. But we'll likely never have the prosperity or influence again that we once had.

For those unfamiliar, just so you know:

Whalers used to leave Nantucket Island, off Cape Cod in Massachusetts, to hunt whales. Whaling involved rowing out from the whaling ship in a longboat and shooting a harpoon into a living whale. The harpoon would hook into the whale's flesh, and the whale would take off, dragging the longboat behind it. Getting dragged here and there behind a harpooned whale, at top speed and great risk to life and limb, was jokingly referred to as a "Nantucket Sleigh Ride."
