A 21st century revolution

Today we face another revolutionary period in the history of America. We are in a pivotal battle to determine the future course of the nation. Will we become a hopeless socialistic morass, as it now appears, or will right-thinking, Godly Americans rise to meet the challenge and set our nation back on the right track?

The U.S. government now controls 80 percent of the largest insurer (AIG), controls the largest auto manufacturer (GM) and has repudiated GM's legitimate creditors. Now this same government wishes to force socialized medicine upon us all, with a plan so obscurely written as to be almost impossible to interpret on close reading. For our elected officials to pass 1,017 pages of legislation of such huge impact which they have not read, without proper debate and study of the cost, is treasonous.

Our president asks during the summer recess that we snitch on each other and report people opposed to his plan. So now it appears we are sliding toward fascism as well? The president won't need a snitch to find me -- I am violently opposed to his plan.

It is time for the vast majority of Americans, people of faith, to arise and make their position known. Men and women of Christian and Judeo-Christian character can change the course of the nation. We have reached a point where failure to act will sink the ship into a hopeless morass.
