This once great nation, originally built upon a foundation of Godly principles, has now established itself among the ranks of fallen civilizations such as Nineveh and Rome.  Although we live in a vastly different time period, the circumstances which now plague us parallel with these biblical cities.  God’s ever present eyes and all-knowing ears are upon us, watching our every move and listening to our every thought.  He patiently waits for revival to sweep over the lands, yearning for reform among His people.  Yet we constantly turn toward worldly pleasure and bow to sin’s pressure, ignoring God’s call.  Our Pledge of Allegiance written in 1892 states “One nation under God”, and in November 1863, President Lincoln wrote in his Gettysburg Address “That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom”.  The very principles this country was founded on have been lost on a generation of politically correct and immorally minded fools, and forgotten by those who once held them so dear.  God has been dismissed as our standard and foundation, and patriotism has been erased from the hearts of men and women, leading us down a path of destruction.  Our nation’s leaders no longer place God in the forefront of their lives nor follow Him with their actions, but instead have placed Him on a shelf only to bring Him down when it elevates their cause.  Instead of wearing the “Full Armor of God”, they have replaced it with a series of costumes, pretending to be anything but themselves to obtain votes.  The Gettysburg Address goes on to say “And that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from this earth”.  Our Constitution written in 1787 begins by saying, “We the people of the United States”.  To this state is where we must return; in the uniting of a nation and her people.  Reform is a necessity, but to obtain this we need to again find great leaders who mirror the attributes of George Washington, Ben Franklin, and Abraham Lincoln.  We must demand God fearing leaders in our communities, and we must rise to patriotism that reflects love for our nation as a whole and not just the meager percent trying to confiscate our rights by replacing the standard for the subpar.  It is time to return to the moral ideals of our founding fathers, and re-instate what they died trying to preserve.  It is imperative that we be a nation under God that is “of the people, by the people, for the people”.  Genuine reform in this country will not be an easy task, but with a renewing of authentic faith in the heart of each person it is attainable.  Stand with me and together we can bring about the birth of a new nation starting with ourselves, allowing us to usher reform across the land.  Let us band together with patriotic love for the land and its people, and let us reclaim what we once were: the United States of America.

Thank you and God bless.
