United We Stand. Divided We Fall
On the TV show HOUSE MD, the main character repeatedly stated that “everybody lies”. This is so true. It is especially true of those running for political office. They will lie as much about themselves as they do their opponents. Both candidates currently seeking to be the next President of the United States (POTUS), are such seasoned liars that they apparently believe their own lies.
It is extremely sad that those of good moral character that do run for political office, are often dismissed as being soft and inept by those with a an aggressive personal agenda.
It would seem that the majority of Americans no longer value integrity, honesty, morality, and humility. Instead we prefer, idolize, and desire to be like those aggressive, power-hungry, prideful braggarts, who care only about building themselves up at the expense of others.
The cult-of-personality that pervades America in the 21st century is dark and dangerous. It is built upon hate and distrust. It is turning neighbor against neighbor — to the point of bloodshed. The last time that happened in America, our nation became so embattled that it nearly drowned its own citizenry in blood. I’m not sure that we ever fully recovered from that “civil” war. In fact, it would seem that our hatred, divisiveness and blood-thirst has come full-circle. We are at the precipice of destruction.
“A house divided against itself cannot stand.”
“Pride comes before a great fall.”
These are truths we cannot afford to ignore if we truly value our freedom and our Republic. We must humble ourselves before one another and before God. For if we continue to follow this current course of self-centered, self-serving, self-interest, we will become like the nation of Israel when she rebelled against God, and our destruction will come from within as well as from without.
All the world’s vultures are patiently waiting to swoop in and feast on our carcasses.
Is that what you want for your children? Is that what you want for your loved ones? Is this the pigsty your want to spend your last days in? Do you really care more about your self and your own agenda than you care about making peace with one another and restoring the high moral values that so many have paid the ultimate price for us to have and maintain?
“Nothing of great and lasting value ever comes easy. A price must be paid, a sacrifice must be made.”
United we stand. Divided we fall.
