Future Events For The Nation
When bearing fruit, the plant world gives us good fruit and poison fruit. The good fruit feeds multitudes of starving people and some animals. Only some birds can eat the poison fruit. We can only eat certain fruit because of the effects they have on our body. Some reactions to fruit are very strong, and the qiickness of the individual is important. However, most good fruit is healthy and brings about a satisfying conclusion.
The same is true of bills before Congress. Some bills are like good fruit. They do good things for the nation and give its consumers a satisfying fullness for their soul. On the other hand, those bills such as HR 3200, the healthcare bill, and the cap and tax bill give the nation and its people heartburn and acid reflux. The reason for this is the amount of governmental control involved. Just like fruit can take control of our bodies in ways we don’t want, these two bills take control of every aspect of our lives.
If these laws are passed we will be brought into a state of servanthood, and like the children of Israel will become the slaves of the very government we helped create. Just as President Washington stated ” Government is not reason, it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” He also said; ” Arbitrary power is most easily established on the ruins of liberty abused by licentiousness.” Licentiousness means; disregarding the rules of conduct. We as the people who are supposed to be the real power behind the government have been betrayed by our elected officials. Our president has even told the American people to be silent and let him pass his legislation without comment, or concent from the very people who elected him. Washington said this about that; If freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” We have an obligation to speak out, loud and often, because if we don’t who will. We then will be repeating history by becoming the Germany of the 1930s and 40s. History does not have to repeat itself if we don’t let it. Keep fighting for justice and freedom and liberty.
