HAS AMERICA LOST HER WILL?
Pastor Roger Anghis
March 10, 2013
It is very disturbing to see what is happening to America. Being raised in the 50’s I saw what may be the last of true American’s. I grew up knowing many members of what is called the Greatest Generation. One of the fathers of a friend of mine was on the USS Arizona when it was attacked at Pearl Harbor. My stepdad, an immigrant from Greece, served in WWI and WWII. Many of the people I learned my trade from were veterans of WWII.
When Pearl Harbor was attacked men flocked to recruiting stations to join all branched of the service. Factories were retrofitted to make weapons of war. America banned together as one to stand against the enemy that threatened not just our way of life but our freedoms.
We saw this again on 9-1-01 when we were attacked by radical muslim’s. Churches filled up and we saw flags on cars, houses, hanging in windows but it did not last. Literally within a few months everything was back to normal. One of the reasons is because our schools today and for the last 20-25 years have refused to teach patriotism. Not many schools require the saying of the pledge of allegiance in schools any more, unless you’re in a Spanish class then saying the pledge to the Mexican flag is mandatory.
Our kids for the last 25 years have not had pride in America instilled in them. In our places of so-called higher education the students are taught that all of the world’s problems are the fault of America’s capitalism. They are taught that the answer to all the world’s problems is communism. Colleges and universities don’t teach the truth about communism. The USSR is no longer in existence; they murdered 50 million of their own people. China has done the same thing. Every other communist nation has done the same. There are no freedoms under communism. The State owns everything. Most of what our Founders fought and died for is no longer considered important to today’s youth.
Growing up I was taught that if I wanted something I had to work for it and pay for it myself. I did that with the first car I owned, my clothes that I was required to buy myself after I started working. I had to pay for my own car insurance, gas, tires, etc. If I wanted my own phone line in our home, I had to pay for it. Today’s kids want everything given to them. In the last 4 years welfare rolls have jumped by over 45%. I understand that a lot of that has to do with the economy but you also have to remember that there are 4th and 5th generations of welfare people who have never worked. Ronald Reagan once said that welfare was never intended to be a career option but way too many have done just that.
The foundation of our society, the family, has crumbled. Government encourages single moms and penalizes married couples when it should be the other way around. We are no longer allowed to discipline our kids because it might hurt their ego. We don’t keep score on game played in classes because if you lose that might hurt you self esteem. Then when these kids grow up and get out in the real world they get slapped in the face with reality and they don’t know how to handle it. You have to know how to get back up after being knocked down. Parents use TV and video games to ‘baby sit’ their kids. Too many have to work multiple jobs to keep up the lifestyle that the kids ‘demand’. Christianity is banned in schools but islam is encouraged.
No one teaches responsibility any more. Colleges teach that if you have a problem it is somebody else’s fault. If you can’t read, it is your teachers fault. There can be some truth to that but for the most part if a child is failing school it is because the child is not applying himself to his work. I had a geometry teacher in the 10th grade that was worthless. He refused to teach. You had to read the book and figure it out yourself. I switched to a different teacher and immediately raised my grade from failing to a ‘B’. This however, is the exception. Students that are failing multiple classes are simply not trying. Our present school system refuses to teach self responsibility. When you don’t have a society that will be responsible for their actions, there will be anarchy.
Bill Ayers, Obama’s friend and domestic terrorist, has been teaching in public colleges since the 70’s. What does he teach? Rules for Radicals a Saul Alinsky book that is dedicated to Satan! We used to reach students how to think. Show them both sides of a situation and then teach them how to choose the one that will benefit society. Today professors like Ayers teach students what to think. There is no morality being endorsed in any public education any more. Sex indoctrination in Massachusetts begins in kindergarten! Why do we feel that it is necessary to teach that in kindergarten? Many schools across the United States teach that homosexuality is a ‘normal’ lifestyle and actually teach its techniques! Students are punished if they speak their Biblical beliefs about homosexuality. Students are forced to accept this lifestyle and deny their beliefs in the name of diversity. That isn’t diversity, that’s indoctrination!
We fought two world wars against dictator regimes that demanded 100% control over the people and attempted to force their political ideology on the rest of the world. Today we have islam trying to shove their political ideology down the worlds throat. America’s religion, Christianity, can coexist with any other religion but islam won’t coexist with any other religion and we allow it to proliferate in America even though they have stated that their intent is to dominate America. I brought this up on my radio program the other day concerning this. This article addressed the mindset of muslims in America. The title of the article is 'We are above the law of the land'
Muslims living in America should not be bound by U.S. law, according to a leader of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, who delivered the controversial message to a crowd at a Muslim rally in Austin, Texas.
“If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land,” said Mustafa Carroll, executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth CAIR branch.
Carroll’s statement was similar to a statement allegedly made by CAIR co-founder and former chairman Omar M. Ahmad. He was paraphrased by a reporter saying, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant” and the Quran “should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
Why do we just sit back and let immigrants take our country over? We don’t seem to want to fight to keep what is ours. It would behoove everyone to watch the video of the Battle of Athens. It is a true story from 1946 when the people of Athens, Georgia had had enough of political corruption and took matters into their own hands. This is also an excellent example of why we have the 2nd Amendment. The people of Athens stood their ground for their rights and would not let the local government violate their rights not the Constitution. You can see the video here.
Somebody said that if you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything. We are seeing that come into manifestation today at an exponential rate. We don’t hold our politicians to any kind of a moral standard any more. Clinton committed adultery in the White House and when the vote to impeach him in the Senate all the Democrats got up and walked out. Republicans that do that are usually forced to resign. Republicans aren’t perfect but they do have slightly higher standards.
Rep. Stark (D) from California when asked about the constitutionality of some of the bills they write in Congress stated that they don’t pay any attention to the Constitution when they write bills. He is on video saying this and should be impeached for it but nobody did anything. We have close to 80 members of Congress that belong to the Democrat Socialists of America. Socialism is the exact opposite of the type of nation that the Founders designed and today’s generation seems to be embracing it with enthusiasm. If they really knew what we would be like as a socialist nation they would change their minds in a hurry. What they enjoy today will be illegal or severely restricted under socialism.

All that America has stood for and accomplished seems to have been lost on most of today’s youth. But as always, there is a remnant that pays attention and is waiting for their time to come forth and re-establish America’s greatness. There are a lot of older people that remember what America is supposed to be and they will and are fighting to return America to what she once was. We have let her go too far, but not so far that we can’t save her.
There are those that will never let America go. I am one of them. I will join forces with all that will do what is needed to turn America around. It will take more of us to get the job done and we will gain in numbers and we will succeed. If the American experiment is lost we will never see it again. I am not prepared to let that happen. Some may have lost their will, but I have not. Fight we must and fight we will.
