Can Western Civilization in America be saved?
« on: October 12, 2017, 02:26:14 PM »
Recently I saw a powerful video by Os Guinness, who is a very renowned sociologist called, "A Free People's Suicide." With out of control immigration, immense national debt, and a people who have forgotten how we got to where we are, can the USA rebound and regain our moral and civic strength, or are we done altogether? Our framers were not perfect, but the republic they set up, and even died for, gave us a great society. Yes, there were issues like slavery, but the Constitution was hostile to that, and it eventually brought about its end. This is a must watch!

Thank you for posting this.   An incredible lecture that should be required viewing in our public schools!

The Constitution was designed for a moral people and it will not work if a majority of the population is not moral.

For the first 150 years of the United States, annual taxes (per person) was between 1 and 3 percent of their salary. Now it's around 25%, although President Trump has a dream to lower it down to 15% (which has not happened yet).

Lastly, at the academic level in sociology, Marxism is being pushed and taught. It is the antithesis of the Constitution. Thank goodness the Lord anointed Trump to be president because he is a wrecking ball to political correctness.
"So then, stand firm and hold to the traditions :o which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter" (2 Thessalonians 2:15).

Here is another video about what makes the USA exceptional. This is the kind of stuff kids should be taught in schools then we wouldn't have so many of the issues we have today.
