New measures are troublingPublished 3:14pm Saturday, December 25, 2010
It is no fun writing about the demise of our country, I assure you. It’s as if the November election never happened.
The Democrats are saying to the American people, we don’t care what you want or don’t want, we are going to bring America down to European status, dependent, broke and spiritually devoid of God. We intend to be politically correct at the expense of liberty, national defense or whatever else may get in the way.
Apparently, nothing was learned from the election just concluded. How pathetic the majority of Democrats have become. Some of these characters were even re-elected to continue their destroy America crusade.
It is sad that some Republicans have no backbone at all. The Democrats can always count on just enough in name only Republicans to carry whatever they are imposing on an unwilling populace. The people need to finish the job in 2012 and rid Congress of the left over riff-raff.
I believe one of the most troubling things is the vote to repeal the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy that has been in place for 17 years.
You might ask, well how about the massive federal deficits or even more troubling our nation’s strangling national debt robbing our children and grandchildren? While those are troubling, true enough, and they do effect our national security, I perceive the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal as an affront to all Christians and the values they espouse.
I’m beginning to wonder how much longer God is willing to tolerate an ungrateful nation intent on defying His authority. This was a vote against Christian morality and values, and our military personnel now serving.
There is little doubt in my mind that there will be a price to pay for this repeal. For one thing there will be a retention problem of skilled personnel in the military. Another will be the inability to recruit young men and women to serve in the military under these circumstances.
It will create a protected group within our military that will receive special treatment due to fear of being brought up on charges, a major distraction from the mission of our military.
Next will be benefit packages for gay and lesbian couples. Already on the chopping block is Tri-care, military retirement pay and the entire retirees benefit packages promised by our government.
Yet these dim wits in congress vote to add more entitlements to the roles. Unbelievable stupidity.
