America Ceases

"I sought for the key to the greatness and genius of America in her harbors....in her fertile fields and boundless forests; in her rich mines and vast world commerce; in her public school system and institutions of learning. I sought for it in  her democratic Congress and in her matchless Constitution. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. 
America is great because America is good; and if America every ceases to be good, America will cease to be great."
~Alexis de Tocqueville: Noted French writer of the 1830s

       Truly, people, America ceases. She ceases to be everything our Founding Fathers made her to be. She ceases to be good. And because America ceases to be good she ceases to be great.  But why does America cease to be great? We still have our harbors and fertile fields and boundless forests and our rich mines and our world commerce and our institutions of learning and our democratic Congress and our matchless Constitution. America ceases to be great because she is ceasing to be good. Because our country is erasing God from their lives. Because our country is turning away from the Creator. Because our pulpits are not aflame with righteousness anymore.
       America is afraid, people. America is afraid to stand up against the wrong. America is afraid to speak the truth. America is afraid to offend. America is afraid to fight. America is afraid to stand firm. America is afraid to stand in times of trial.
  AMERICA IS AFRAID

And it's time for America to stop being afraid. It's time for America to become great again. It's time for America to stand up against the wrong. It's time for America to speak the truth. It's time for America to offend. It's time for America to fight. It's time for America to stand firm. It's time for America to stand against the trials.

IT IS TIME
It's time for America to make a change. It's time for America to finally stand up against the wrong!
