It is very simple. The West is morally, intellectually and spiritually exhausted. I pray daily for a renewal for this country and our civilization. I do see some green shoots in the various places. However, we have generations who have no clue about their Birthright of Liberty bequeathed to us by our Founders. As a result, we get Obama and Obamacare, the HHS mandate, the NDAA section 1021 and drones overhead among other guttings of our inalienable rights. The situation in this country will not improve until the majority realizes that "those who would trade Liberty for security deserve neither." For that to happen, things will have to get much worse, before they will get better. Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.
