Our Constitution – Rock of Ages or a pile of dust?

As 2014 begins, America is coming to a crossroads.  In each of the five previous years, Barack Obama’s presidency has our nation at risk of becoming just another European-style socialist country.

The end of 2014, we will see if the Constitution remains the bedrock of our nation’s government or has it been marginalized to the point of being just one founding document seen on display in a government museum.

In 2008, presidential candidate Barack Obama promised to “fundamentally transform” America. In the following years, we learned that his campaign promise was far more of a threat to the core values held by the American people than we could have imagined. Astonishingly, he achieved reelection in 2012 in spite of all the adverse factors afflicting our nation that would have derailed other candidates.

As we begin the sixth year of this presidency, we know not through his rhetoric but through his actions that Barack Obama’s vision is to remake America into a socialist, Big-Government nanny state with limited-freedom, creating a weak nation that apologizes for its heritage.

In contrast, millions of American’s hold the vision of having restoration to our nation’s core values, love of freedom, fiscal and moral accountability, individual responsibility,’ national sovereignty, and  to stop deriding  our Christian heritage.

There is no middle ground in this battle for America’s future!  Living under a government regime like Cuba, China or the old Soviet Union that actively undermines your choices to standards of life, family, faith and economic growth seems very distasteful.  This is the country we would pass on to the next generation; poor with little freedom of choice, and without any hope of upward mobility.

This is the cross road we are approaching.  The next several months and the upcoming 2014 elections will determine the direction of America.  Losing the up coming battle for America’s soul by electing the politicians that support President Obama’s agenda direction is unthinkable as it continues to dim the light of freedom!

    I’m afraid this battle is already over. When the American people re-elected Obama, despite the overwhelming evidence of his lawlessness, I came to the harsh realization that the Republic had been lost.

    The Republican Party betrayed me (and all of us), and I’ll never vote for them again… ever. They all stood by (our representatives), every one of them, and did nothing as this man (Obama) ran roughshod over the law… and he still does… daily.

    The time for a new political party that honors and respects our founding principals (rather than money) has long past. The tired old argument saying we’ll loose the election if we form another party no longer holds any water. Just look at where THAT has gotten us.

    God help us all.

    Yes America, there is no place to run nor hide. If we do not stand individually and as a Christian Nation on the values America’s Forefathers did, we are doomed to slavery like Israel. Now is the time to stand and be counted. Become politically involved in the reclaiming of our Christian heritage. Madge Eicher

    Very good points, and we’ll see if officials in Richmond will also continue its trend of turning their backs on the Constitution and the rule of law over government.
