We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Those words are beautiful, inspired words, written and agreed upon by men who understood that we could not leave them until last, that they must appear first, the premise upon which all other words in their sacred document must follow.
I don't know about you, but I hardly recognize America any longer.
Forget that "Affordable Care" law is two years old today, and we STILL don't know all that is in it.
Forget about the fact that the CBO underestimated by HALF the cost of this megatron, it's TWICE as expensive as originally estimated, therefore guaranteeing our bankruptcy even more quickly if implemented.
Forget about the fact that twenty-seven states have appealed their case on the unconstitutionality of this issue to the Supreme Court of the United States. (Why there aren't fifty involved is disturbing!)
Forget about the fact that SEVENTY PERCENT of Americans want it completely repealed.
There's more. And you may not realize it, but there's something insidious in that law that makes my blood run cold.
In addition to mandated "free birth control", I saw a news story last week that told of $1 abortions that must be available to every woman in the new so-called "affordable care act", I was absolutely appalled.
Not that the price of the abortion is the important thing; of course it isn't. What's paramount is the fact that it happens at all. That is still the most awful destruction ever there was.
However, to cheapen an abortion to the point where it costs less to destroy a life on an innocent human than it does to buy a gallon of gas...incredible.
That we've even arrived at this point shows how very small the value life is to this administration. Are we then supposed to feel safe and trust that their plan for our health care is any more well-intentioned toward us?!
This hardly received any coverage in the news, and I can't really question the motives for avoiding this, to tell the truth, there is so much bad news and perverted legislation happening, and so fast, one can barely keep up with all that's coming out of Washington, D.C.
I fear for my children and grandchildren.
This particular dictate in the "affordable care act" is because if this is how low we can go toward the life of an innocent, what value will a human have who is already born, yet is unable to care for him or herself, ever?
What value will an elderly person who is sick have under this plan? I think we all know the answer.
This all came out as a result of the discovery that religious organizations (well, most of them anyway, as with everything Obama decrees, there ARE exceptions, thus removing the idea that there will be equal treatment under the law!) would be forced to participate in the mandated birth control and abortion drugs.
All of this is dribbling out in bits and pieces. A few days ago, another story was dribbled out and this left me breathless: free sterilizations for college girls! WHY?! What college girl has the insight to make such a decision as this at that age?!
Why is this so important to "affordable health care"!?!
There is, as we can clearly see if we take the time to look: a culture of hatred toward new life. How can any country expect to be blessed when this is our outlook on something as sacred as LIFE?
Why does it feel like the forces of evil are running our country from Washington, D.C.?
The war on Christianity, and our founding documents and everything that is truth and good is surely here and it's here now!
