Just Wondering...

Who wears Mussolini's and Hitler's hats now
A leader who gives empty promises
Dangles carrots none will taste
We lose our collective voice
And backslide a hundred years
Even more
Until we are a kingdom
Of serfs
One above all
It is not God.

I just said to Bob yesterday, our country is sliding backwards and slowly a little by little they are taking away our freedoms and no one even notices...

I'm way up in Canada and see it happening everyday, reading about it on news and tv. Sad, but then, how many politicians or Presidents or whatever have ever kept a promise? Very sad and very true :(

Unfortunately we will all find out in the next few years. Elections have far reaching ripples that we are all feeling now and will suffer from for many years. Keep praying!

True and very awesome!

Ginny said...

Hmmm...thought provoking and I wonder if you are referring to one person or a group...

I also think our country is sliding backwards and it scares the heck out of me. I think it was planned to happen little by little.

:(.....too true.

Way up in the North, I see a country that is drifting, no galloping away from God and the principles that the country was founded on. I also see abominations occurring that are warned against in the Bible.

Don't feel too bad, I see the same things happening in this country also. :-{

Sandy said...

Everyone needs to wake up and smell the roses!!!!

This is our country, and our freedoms. We need to stand up for both.

I agree that we can't give up. We still have a voice now we just need a decent candidate...and I mean decent in the old-fashioned sense of the word. At this point, I'd take one on either side.
