Portrait of a President

From Wikipedia:

The decline of the Roman Empire refers to the gradual societal collapse of the Western Roman Empire. Many theories of causality prevail, but most concern the disintegration of political, economic, military, and other social institutions, in tandem with foreign invasions and usurpers from within the empire. The English historian Edward Gibbon, author of The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (1776) made this concept part of the framework of the English language, but he was not the first to speculate on why and when the Empire collapsed. “From the eighteenth century onward,” Glen W. Bowersock has remarked,[1] “we have been obsessed with the fall: it has been valued as an archetype for every perceived decline, and, hence, as a symbol for our own fears.” It remains one of the greatest historical questions, and has a tradition rich in scholarly interest. In 1984, German professor Alexander Demandt published a collection of 210 theories on why Rome fell, and new theories have emerged since then.[2][3]

This slow decline occurred over a period of four centuries, culminating on September 4, 476, when Romulus Augustus, the last Emperor of the Western Roman Empire, was deposed by Odoacer, a Germanic chieftain. Some modern historians question the significance of this date,[4] and not simply because Julius Nepos, the legitimate emperor recognized by the East Roman Empire, continued to live in Salona, Dalmatia, until he was assassinated in 480. The Ostrogoths who succeeded considered themselves upholders of the direct line of Roman traditions. The Eastern Roman Empire was going from strength to strength and continued until the Fall of Constantinople on May 29, 1453.

Many events throughout the empire’s history are considered to have worsened the empire’s so-called “decline”. The Battle of Adrianople in 378, the death of Theodosius I in 395 (the last time the Roman Empire was politically unified), the crossing of the Rhine in 406 by Germanic tribes, the execution of Stilicho in 408, the sack of Rome in 410, the death of Constantius III in 421, the death of Aetius in 454, the second sack of Rome in 455, and the death of Majorian in 461 are all macrohistorical events concerning the decline of the Western Roman Empire.

How much longer can our Freedom last?

B8_ZZEBIMAIIQDu

History tells us that some of the greatest empires on earth have fallen do to apathy, greed and a moral decline.  History tends to repeat itself and if we Americans don’t wake up soon we may find our Republic on the ash heap of history ourselves.

I am seeing all across the web a serious decline in readership of the blogs that stand as a beacon of light warning of our impending doom. Perhaps many are just burned out and discouraged while others may feel there is no escaping our fate. It is my hope that there will come a revival of sorts in the near future. It is my hope that American morality will triumph over the evil that has befallen our country. It is my hope that America can be restored to her former greatness.

I fight within myself daily to keep this blog alive and vibrant and must admit there are times when I would rather just let it go and leave the fight for Freedom to the next generation.

My Enlightening Encounter at the County Fair

2010839-portrait-of-the-elderly-woman-on-the-park-bench

Last Year I went to the County Fair with my oldest son and his family to enjoy a day watching the grand children’s wide eyed excitement of the wonders to be seen at a County Fair.  After a few hours of walking the grounds and taking in the sights and sounds of this wonderful event I decided to take a break on a park bench where I sat next to a senior lady who seemed to have the same idea as me.

What happened next will remain etched in my mind for the rest of my days.

Shortly after taking a seat at the opposite end of the park bench this this soft spoken lady turned to me and said, I enjoy just sitting here people watching these days but I can’t help but notice very few are smiling as they walk by.  She then asked if I have noticed the same thing to which I replied, yes I do, I see it also.  She then continued on to say it is as if they know something very bad is about to happen and they are not quite sure what. Again I replied, I see it too.

After a short pause she turned to me and said the America you and I once knew is lost and a terrible time is about to befall us all. 

These people walking by can feel it but you and I have lived long enough to know what is happening.  She then asked, are you a Christian?  I replied that I was and that I too know what is about to happen.  She smiled softly and went on to say it is too late to turn back the hands of time. 

The American people have fallen for a great deception and walk about refusing to believe that a great evil has taken hold of our country.

Somewhat taken back by this whole conversation I could not help but ask what she was planning to do about it.  She simply replied that she had thought about becoming a ‘Prepper’ but soon realized that in today’s age of technology there was no longer any way to escape the government scrutiny of our lives. 

She then went on to tell me a short story about an experience she had using her lap top. She stated that her lap top had a built in camera on it that she never used and how one day when she stepped away from her lap top for a short while she returned to find a picture of herself on the screen that was taken while working on her lap top.  Her computer had been locked and a message read that she had downloaded sensitive materials and that her computer has been seized until she contacted the government agency at the number provided. As it turned out it was a hacker who froze her computer and demanded a  payment of $250.00 to release her computer.  She contacted the manufacturer of her computer and they were able to unfreeze her computer for a small charge after which she immediately taped over the camera lens on her computer. 

What concerned her the most about this episode was the thought that if a hacker could do this then imagine what our government could do.

The Lord’s return is upon us my friend she said with a smile of relief and I pray that you and your loved ones are ready.  I said that we were and wished the same upon her and her family.  She replied that they were and yet grieved for all those who have been so deceived by a society that has turned their backs on God for those earthly pleasures that will soon be gone.  With that she rose up, turned and bid me farewell.  

There was so much more to this conversation that I would have filled up pages upon pages with her insights. I walked away from that conversation knowing that we are not alone in what we are all feeling these days.

It is not often in this life when we cross paths with like minded individuals but for me this encounter was Heaven sent and I will remember this conversation until that Glorious day when Jesus returns  in all of His Glory.

America’s Fading Glory

picture-of-american-eagle-and-flag-4

As many of you know I came very close to shutting down this Voting American Blog.  Had it not been for the encouragement of my Patriot Friends across the internet Voting American would have faded into the abyss of Apathy.

It is incredibly disheartening to watch as this once great country succumbs to the will of those who would ‘Fundamentally Transform’ her into a Socialist Government dependency State. A place where the ‘Land of the Free’ would become the land of the Government Slave.

I spent a great deal of time over the past few days scouring over some of the over 800 articles here at Voting American and came across this eye opening commentary submitted by Loopyloo on February 10, 2012:

058c27cf4d9faa50502289fcde18322fGovernment intimidation is getting stronger everyday. The bullying is outrageous and the implication that those who speak up for their country and their faith are somehow anti-American or wish for the destruction of the country is so far from the truth, that if it weren’t being said by those who do wish to destroy the country, it would be hard to believe. But that is a tactic of those who follow the Alinsky path. Accuse others of doing what you are doing in order to divert attention from your own actions.

God bless and watch over all those willing to stand and speak up for this country. God bless all those who want to restore the principles that this country was founded on. God bless all those who understand the Christian foundations that our Constitution was established on. God bless those who understand the freedoms we have and the cost of those who have fought and died to save them. God bless everyone who is willing to stand for what is right. If we do not stand now, we may never have the opportunity again, and we will have given away this country to those who hate her.

God bless American and may she remain standing as the greatest country on the face of the earth.

After reading that commentary from Loopyloo and reading all the words of encouragement coming from my Patriot Friends I could no longer even consider the option of shutting down this Voting American site.

T’was Apathy that Killed the Dream

mcnaughton-wake-up-america-620x412

We have watched as this President and the former Democratically Controlled  Congress passed legislation behind closed doors and against the will of the people.

 

We have watched as this President has spent us into oblivion and beyond .

 

We have watched as this President encouraged Racial Tensions and blatant Racism in Our Country undoing so much of the gains that were made over the years.

 

We have watched as this President traveled abroad and apologized to our enemies for America.

 

We have watched as this President began to disarm America systematically all the while knowing the Chinese and Russians were smiling in disbelief at his ignorance.

 

This President may choose to bow down before our enemies if he wishes too, but We the People bow down to no one,  especially him!

 

I could go on and on and fill up pages with all the things this President, this Administration and the former Democratically  Controlled  Congress have done to and against the American people but I think you get the point of my message here today.

 

WE HAVE WATCHED AND YET WE HAVE DONE…

NOTHING!

At what Price Freedom?

What is the price each of us are willing to pay for our freedom? The internet has been full of rage over the ‘Fundamental Transformation of America’ we have found under President Obama, and one has to wonder just what each and everyone of us is willing to do in order to preserve this last great hope of mankind on earth.

The November Mid-Term Elections will be upon us before we know it and the time to act is now if we are ever going to win back our Country and our Freedoms.
