What is happening to America?

The land of the free? The home of the brave? In many ways, it seems more and more unrecognizable every day. Here's a recent example:

I sure hope that doesn't get the gentleman into a compromising position! What's most troubling about this is that he apparently didn't expect that any of his constituents would object to being treated this way.

Earlier this week, the President of the United States of America announced that he was going to address via television all of the children in public schools all across the country. There was so much immediate objection to this outright propaganda assault that the event was later withdrawn.

These are just two fresh-off-my-iGoogle-page examples of the craziness that has crept upon us within the last few years.

However, not all news is bad. I have become very encouraged lately by what seems to be an awakening in the hearts and minds of young people all around. I frequently meet teens and young adults who are sober-minded, spiritually solid (often "reformed"), and have a yearning for Liberty. These young people seem unaffected by the dropping of the names of political parties. It's as though they have a distrust of all politicians--as of course they should. Suddenly, things that haven't been questioned for decades are being questioned. And what's perhaps most exciting is that in the Internet they have a printing press like no other revolution has ever seen. (At least, they have it until the President shuts it down.)

Though I noticed it first in the young people, I also see adults suddenly realizing that socialized medicine will always fail, that the Federal Reserve's inflation of the money supply is theft, that it is contradictory to think that we can spread freedom by force.

Bro. Ben,

What is happening to America is a "reaping" of what we have been "sowing" all these years.
We have been sowing to the flesh and have in effect told God by our attitudes and actions, "we will not have you to reign over us".
We are now seeing the results of our compromise with the "lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life".
