Memorial day is a day of remembrance for those fallen in battle in the service of this nation. It is also a good time to give a national warning to those that think freedom is free. The American nation that our forefathers died for already is on life support and if we do not fight to keep our liberty and freedom we will lose it.
Perhaps the time has come for patriotic Americans to fly their flags upside down because the nation is in great distress. If nothing is done to turn America around we will be judged by God. Soon we could no longer be a great or a free nation.
I honestly get a little irked these days when someone at some concert or church wants us to stand up and sing certain patriotic songs. It irks me because I know most of the people standing and singing will not lift one finger to help America. In fact, many of the people singing and flag waving are destroying America because of the stands that they take.
What I am saying is that many of these people stand for the politicians who among other things support the destruction of marriage, the destruction of our military, the destruction of our liberty, the destruction of true Christianity or the free expression of it, the destruction of babies in the womb, the destruction of our children’s minds in government indoctrination centers and the destruction of our economy through collectivism.
Why should God bless America? And should Christians be asking God to continue to bless America when the blessings of liberty, and prosperity resulted in America taking God out of country and the values that our forefathers died for? What will be necessary to get Americans to repent? Should we not be asking for chastisement if we really love America? Maybe someone should put that concept into a patriotic song if we want to keep the traditional America that we love to sing about? The truth is that many Americans are now rejecting God and bringing on themselves the curse of Romans 1:19-32.
Rom 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Will you really gladly stand up and defend America still today, like the words in Lee Greenwood’s “God bless the USA” says? I think most Americans under the age of 50 will not. If there were a war where people actually got drafted, I think half the people on the draft list would become illegal aliens in some other country. Many of the people singing that they would “defend America still today” are actually the ones bringing the destruction of America through their own evil ways.
Go into the government and drug dependent areas of Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Cleveland, St Louis, Phoenix, L.A. or any other large American city and you probably won’t love our land quite so much there. In fact, if you sang God Bless the USA, on some of those inner city streets this Memorial Day you might be joining the fallen.
Don’t get my wrong. I am patriotic. I served this country. I support the more traditional Reagan America rather than the Obama postmodern socialist godless substitute that is leading America to its destruction. If the people singing actually mean what they sing I totally support the singing of these songs, but the hypocrisy is mind-boggling.
Do Americans think that singing a song on an American holiday and acting patriotic for ten minutes is going to stop the slide of America toward its destruction? All great nations fell for the same evils that are now so prevalent in America but let’s sing a rousing patriotic song and pretend that all is well in America when we really should be in sackcloth and ashes flying our flag upside down because America is on life support.
Would a healthy America spend itself into default? Yet, that is exactly what America is doing because of its excesses. Five trillion dollars was borrowed over the last four years to stimulate a recovery and the recovery it stimulated is the Obamanation that we see. Five trillion borrowed and still there has been no recovery for most and unemployment is not falling like our government reports. People just quit working so the government stopped counting them as unemployed. Wages are still falling as is every other measurement of our living standards if adjusted for true inflation.
The borrowing will continue. The day that our government can no longer borrow is the day of the start of the next civil war. We added a third to our total national debt in just 4 years. For all those trillions borrowed and the more trillions that will be borrowed in the next few years the government tells us that GDP growth will only be 2 percent. That will be far less than the inflation rate and we will go deeper in debt, so how is all that borrowing bringing about a recovery in America? Standards of living will keep declining and the national debt will keep rising. America’s main life support is now coming from the Federal Reserve bank just printing more money because they cannot find enough people to finance our debt at the very low interest rate they are willing to offer. Quantitative easing three is about to be hooked up into America’s life support system. It will be the equivalent of America on meth. If that happens the dollar crash is coming.
Donald Trump and many others say to get ready for hyperinflation. Financial wizard Marc Faber says that there is a 100 percent chance of a world recession by the fourth quarter of 2012 or the first quarter of 2013. Don’t bet against them. Hyperinflation or debt default is inevitable. The only thing that is holding up the dollar is the debt bomb in Europe and the massive debt in Japan. If all the central banks of the world just start printing more money (as we already do) to pay their debts the whole world will see hyperinflation and if they don’t we will see massive debt default. We could soon see unemployment over fifty percent in much of the world. That would bring civil wars and another world war.
It’s not just our economy that is in distress. The nation is already on the brink of civil upheaval. Black racist gangs are beating up whites and robbing and looting at will in some areas. The MSM likes to call these events flash mobs as if some paranormal event took over the minds of normal people for a flash. These are not normal people. They are mostly black brain dead hoodlums that use the race card or victim card as justification to do whatever violence against whites they want or steal whatever they want.
Whites will be forced to defend themselves from these lawless fatherless hoods, but when they do there will be race riots and once they start I do not see them ending without martial law in the inner cities. This will be the outcome of fifty years of black American children growing up without fathers. Many of these inner city blacks were brought up in the streets by social misfits, gangsters, drug dealers, and race baiters. One half of these people are functionally illiterate. This generation of government dependents and criminals will become a curse on the people who allowed it to happen. Now the youth of the more recent Latino areas of our inner cities as well as other ethics groups are rapidly falling into similar evil patterns.
I think Americans have whistled past the graveyard for much too long. There are real dangers coming upon us and few are prepared. For example, there is the danger of losing our power grid and modern infrastructure for an extended period because of an EMP, solar mass ejection, or cyber attack. Americans will watch various TV series based on the aftermath of an EMP over America but they must not believe it can happen here. If they did they would demand that action be taken to protect our infrastructure from this danger. America has been warned time and again by the experts to no avail, now these disaster “entertainment shows” could be our last warnings. Your electrical service is not guaranteed by God. Without modern infrastructure those still surviving in this nation might wish that they were dead – read “One Second After” if you want the details.
God can allow the destruction of this nation through such weapons or natural events if He so desires. So Americans should not be living in complacency like times will always be good when the nation shows signs of active rebellion against God. Even chosen Israel fell to their enemies and were scattered in the nations because they forgot the God of Israel that protected them. For thousands of years Israel has been minority prey and scapegoats for the ills of Gentile nations because God removed those unbelievers from their land.
This Memorial Day while you’re remembering the fallen (right?) you might also remember just how far this nation has fallen in the last couple of decades. You then just might want to fly the American flag upside down as a call of distress to shock the minority that actually might stand up and defend her still today, as the fallen in battle once did for America. We can honor and give thanks to those who died for our nation by keeping the nation that they died for. We should remember that this Memorial Day.
