A Time To Grieve

grieve

By INVAR

For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.
A time to be born and a time to die.
A time to plant and a time to harvest.
A time to kill and a time to heal.
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-4

Today is a time to grieve.

For those in America that cherished our biblical foundations and the liberties granted us by Almighty God, it is now a time to grieve.

America has chosen as it’s chief executive: a Marxist, with deep ties to Socialist and ethnocentric radicalism, upon whose stated agenda during the campaign is the greatest threat to your liberty that has ever come against it.  

America has selected as President, a man who has said that America “Must break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution”.

This man has said that he will “fundamentally change the United States of America”.

This man’s entire campaign has been one of “change”.  To “change America” into something it was never intended to be; a Socialist tyranny.

Obama has already taken two oaths of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States – two oaths he has never honored, indeed his own words prove that he will not honor this oath that he must swear, because he hates what America is and was.   This is why he seeks to change it.

Along with the choice of Marxist for President – the Democrats now have a super majority in the legislature, which means that the Obama, Reid, Pelosi triumvirate can proceed unopposed.

Contrary to gentlemen who have no problem compromising principles to appear congenial, who advocate the nation to ‘unify’ behind Obama, let us note that Obama himself made no such similar gracious overture in his victory speech.  Instead he said: “I may not have won your vote tonight, but I will be your president too”. So even if you did not vote for the Marxist, too bad – because he is now your boss in his mind.

This is a remarkable statement when the very people who lent themselves to his campaign spent the last 8 years trashing the current occupant of the White House, referring to Bush as Hitler and vehemently exclaiming that he was not their president, even while on foreign soil.  

So, Marxists pushing Socialism won, and liberty lost.

America has chosen it’s fate.

In truth, our experiment with liberty is now over as it reverts to totalitarian Socialism and an oligarchy that will now proceed to entrench itself into permanent political power.

I have read a lot of loathing, fear and anger today over the results of yesterday.  But let us face this truth: America wants Socialism.  America no longer reveres liberty and responsibility, America wants a free hand out because they have been led to envy and hate those that have succeeded.  America has succumbed to the delusion to worship a mere man as a messiah, and grant him the power to control their lives and take from those they envy, and have it redistributed to themselves by the power of government.

This truth requires us to reflect on how we arrived here and what was initially intended for us as a people and nation.  This truth requires that we grieve.  America has been transformed into a pure democracy, a mob that has elevated a narcissistic demagogue to president.

We have seen this before in history.

We should know where it leads.

Some say today that we should not give into any defeatism.  Some say today that this is just a temporary bump and we will be able to restore whatever damage to liberty is done in 4 years.

To that I quote Founder John Adams: 

…A Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty once lost is lost forever. When the People once surrender their share in the Legislature, and their Right of defending the Limitations upon the Government, and of resisting every Encroachment upon them, they can never regain it…

– John Adams, Letter to Abigail 1775

Some of your countrymen see something that perhaps you refuse to allow yourself to recognize in your patriotic bravado: that this mob that has chosen Socialism sees you as the enemy. Soon your neighbors and family will share the sentiment for the promise of bread or security.

While some may grieve aloud – some of us stuff it down deep and pretend we can restore what cannot be restored once lost.

How can we expect God to hear and rescue the nation from our follies when we have turned a blind eye to the genocide of the unborn in our own nation? 

Who the hell are we but Germans who looked the other way when millions were sent to gas chambers and ovens?  In our generation, on our watch as a Christian people – we stood idle while an entire generation of infants were stabbed in the brain and sucked out with a vacuum.

Where the hell was the Christian church to stand against that holocaust? Where the hell were they to teach their children and their brethren to be chaste and virtuous??

Where were they to decry sinful sexual deviancy and adultery??

Where  was the Christian church when God was banned and removed from school?

Where was the Christian church when God’s commandments were tossed from the public square?

I’ll tell you where they were: silent.  Capitulators to the deviancy that destroyed our culture.

Can we be surprised if God is silent in a coming time when we are in need of His aid?

Where will the Christian church be when they come to remove the scriptures and criminalize our teachings?

I tell you where they will be – the same damn place they were when the culture went to hell: standing with the mob.

Some of us are resolved to fight.

Some, because of however the Spirit directs – feel the need to flee.

And such persons are grieving, and we need to look to their example today.

Are we so callous, so indifferent or in such denial that we will not afford ourselves to do the same??

We deserve what is coming.

Despite what you are about to experience, our robes will be made white in the flames of tribulation – because the Christian church has gone lukewarm in America, neither hot, nor cold – God is going to vomit us forth from His mouth – and we will undergo trial by fire to see what kind of mettle we are made of.

Grieve now, and show God your remorse for how carelessly we regarded His precious gift of liberty.

Grieve now and show God in tears our sorrowfulness for slapping him in the face by neglecting our duty to guard the culture which was the vanguard of the Republic.

Grieve now, and show God our gratitude for the blessings we have squandered and the liberty we are about to lose.

Perhaps if we all grieved, and we repented – we might hold onto what we have just a little while longer by the Grace and Mercy of God.

But do not deceive yourselves by thinking we are going to restore what is and will be lost.

We were warned.

We did not heed.

Now we must prepare to endure, and hold on to the Crown of Life God has blessed us with.

Do not be discouraged with what you will see in the future.  Be steadfast and endure knowing that this judgment is a long time coming.

I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever. – Thomas Jefferson

    GREAT POST! I agree 100%. I literally wept for my wife and three kids GOD has blessed me with, after i heard the masses voted their freedom and liberties away to Obama. I hope they get everything they are hoping from him and more.

    What world will be left for my children? Morailty separates us from animals, and the morality of this world has eroded to nothing. When we cannot protect the most innocent of us, the unborn, a civil soceity does not exist.

    I can sleep well knowing i did not vote for him.

    1 Thessalonians 5:2-4 (NIV) for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 4 But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.

    Be ready Chrisitan Soldiers…..

    May God keep you under his protective wing. Thank you for writing this. I always respect what you write in Tree of Liberty and this is no different.

    Take off the tinfoil hat, man. Obama is an American politician like any other. The man cast his net far and wide in order to win an election. People identify with him and realize that HOPE is the American dream. Now that he is President-Elect, he is surrounding himself with good people and taking pages out of the best American political books, even those by Reagan!

    I have seen some of the rants about “Socialism” here and many are false. Things that worked in the time of the founding fathers are outdated. They were smart enough to create a “living document” which can, and has been,. AMENDED. I see something here about “restoring our heritage”. This country was founded on White supremacy and Manifest Destiny. If you espouse those philosophies, you terrify me. Those philosophies are old, and need to be retired.
    Ideas like economic anarchy and reckless privatization would doom this country into a “thugocracy” where filthy-rich warlords rule. I guess you are OK with a CEO making over 1000x as much as his average worker. Henry Ford had it right. He made 40x his average worker and he lived fine. His workers could afford his product. Today, you have Malyasian kids making $200 sneakers for a dollar a day, so fatcats can get rich. How is that “freedom”? Unless you count the freedom to oppress people freedom. Freedom is not being controlled by corporate lobbyists and mega-corporations that squash competition. Do you really want more Standard Oils and Wal-Marts?

    Sorry to say this, but envy sparks invention and hard work. “Keeping up with the Jones'” is as American as Apple Pie! Those with the money get the influence and power. Bottom-up economics gives power to the people, something I would think the founding fathers would want. The current system of cronyism and nepotism that pervades American Capitalism would make Adam Smith cry.

    I have nothing against Christians, just those who come knocking at my door, pushing their self-righteous dross in my face. I believe in some kind of unseen Creator that I cannot possibly fathom, but not Christianity. You hate me for my belief, yet you call the secularists “tyrants”. Let’s not forget who was responsible for the Inquisition.

    Please do not be afraid. Obama will not eat you or your children, nor will he put you in a Gulag. He won’t “tax you into oblivion”. Taxes will be close to the taxes under Clinton. And since you probably don’t net yourself over a quarter mil annually, I have the feeling you will be benefiting from Obama’s tax and health care plans.

    Good luck with your struggles.

  5. justin

    Also, one thing you I hope you believe that Obama says is that we must, absolutely MUST get beyond this stupid partisanship. It has divided our country. You would separate from your fellow American brothers and sisters based on something as silly as whether or not they believe in the same God as you? Isn’t that the First Amendment? Washington was right when he said that political parties were a bad idea, especially a two-party system.

    We are a UNITED states of America! God bless Her!

    Obama is an American politician like any other.

    Yeah, the people of Germany said the same thing about Hitler too.

    I read his “Autobiographies”, I listened to his speeches and the words of those who engineered his campaign.

    He’s a Saul Alinsky Marxist, with a retribution and redistributionist ideology, and his views of America are exactly what his wife blurted out once: “America is a downright mean country”.

    Obama’s views of America are the same as his pastor Jeremiah Wright Jr, the same as Louis Farrakahn, the same as Weather Underground terrorist William Ayers – all three of them helping his campaign.

    People identify with him and realize that HOPE is the American dream.

    Yeah, it’s called FALSE MESSIAH WORSHIP.

    Any idiot that has put his hope in a man, a politician, a demagogue, is not American – because a true American has hope in God and his own abilities, not in some politician to “provide” an American dream.

    Only Socialists think like you do. Only mind-numbed zombies heralding a false messiah think like you do.

    We saw the same thing with the Seig Heils for Hitler once too.

    Now that he is President-Elect, he is surrounding himself with good people

    Right, Rahm Emmanuel, William Ayers, Jeremiah Wright Jr., Khalidi, Rezko et al., are “good people” yes?

    You’re a buffoon. A goosestepping Obama monkey.

    I have seen some of the rants about “Socialism” here and many are false.

    No they’re not. Did you read his books? Watch his policy speeches that kept changing? Listen to his VP on stump speeches?

    That’s Socialism pal – redistributionism for the collective.

    Things that worked in the time of the founding fathers are outdated. They were smart enough to create a “living document” which can, and has been,. AMENDED. I see something here about “restoring our heritage”. This country was founded on White supremacy and Manifest Destiny.

    You’re a clueless imbecile with no understanding whatsoever of our Foundational principles and the reason they were enshrined in the Constitution.

    Your “living document” tripe is nothing but crap. Why bother having a Constitution at all if we can change it at whim to suit the fads and passions of the moment? Let your messiah rule by decree – that’s what you people really want anyway.

    You are an enemy of everything our Founders and patriarchs stood for and established.

    If you espouse those philosophies, you terrify me.

    Good. Liberty always terrifies tyrants and their sycophantic supporters that want power for themselves.

    Those philosophies are old, and need to be retired.

    We’re waiting for you to try and “retire” them. You are going to discover that they are not the things that will be “retired”.

    Thanks for admitting you are an enemy of the Constitution of the United States of America.

    Some of us have sworn an oath to defend it from enemies both foreign and domestic.

    I’ll put you down as one of the domestic enemies.

    I guess you are OK with a CEO making over 1000x as much as his average worker.

    Yeah. It’s called Capitalism. It’s NONE of your freaking business how much my employer pays me, or how much they pay their CEO’s.

    Only SOCIALISTS and MARXISTS concern themselves with such things.

    So you have already proven your claim Obama is not a Socialist to be an outright lie – because you, yourself espouse the same ideology of redistributionism and Collectivism as he does.

    Henry Ford had it right. He made 40x his average worker and he lived fine.

    Who the hell are you to decide what is ‘fine’??

    You’re a tyrant – an enemy of liberty that will empower enemies of liberty to deprive real Americans of both liberty and wealth.

    God help you people.

    Today, you have Malyasian kids making $200 sneakers for a dollar a day, so fatcats can get rich. How is that “freedom”?

    You have already established the fact you are a protege of Class Envy and Warfare, Satanic qualities to boot.

    Freedom is not being controlled by corporate lobbyists and mega-corporations that squash competition. Do you really want more Standard Oils and Wal-Marts?

    You have no clue what liberty is.

    I want as many Wal-Marts and oil companies as those who take the risk to run them are willing to take.

    I like affordable gas and energy, which makes affordable food and merchandise.

    The tyrant however, will not permit such things unless he controls them himself.

    Please do not be afraid.

    We’re not afraid.

    We’re pissed off.

    And we’re getting ready to defend our liberties from Socialist scum like yourself.

    I hope you believe that Obama says is that we must, absolutely MUST get beyond this stupid partisanship. It has divided our country.

    That’s hubris hypocrisy coming from a man and party that has been engaged in polarizing the country. Or is having Obama’s new Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel naming Americans he declares enemies and plunging a steak knife into a podium shouting “Dead!” after every name, the kind of “getting beyond partisanship” you people plan?

    In other words – you will get rid of the partisanship by killing and punishing your ideological enemies.

    Yeah – we know what you and your messiah and his handlers are up to.

    We will defend the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic.

    We know what category to put you in.

    When you have no facts, you debate with insults. I never once threw personal attacks at you. You are reacting emotionally because I have exposed flaws in your argument.

    You are a simple man with simple values, and you have shown your true colors. Those who believe differently from you are evil and must be destroyed. It is people like you that made the pilgrims flee the ideological fascism of England to come to this country in the first place.

    You talk about how collectivism is evil. Christians, as evidenced by your tirades here and the tirades of other so-called “Christians” are groupthinking ditto heads. At least be equal-opportunity!
    I guess “E Pluribus Unum” means nothing to you.

    Why must you Christian “conservatives” think only in Black and White? This “with us, against us” mentality is what is divisive! Why can’t you see this? It seems like “liberty” is marching lock-step with Christianity, white supremacy, and crony capitalism. I see you said nothing about the cronyism in America that keeps people like you and me from ever getting into the top 5% that runs everything in this country, including its government.

    It seems like “liberty” is only that which benefits you and yours. Everyone else can go to hell. What you are saying is, “Screw other Americans, they can suffer as long as I get mine!” Isn’t Greed a deadly sin?

    Read Wealth of Nations to find out what Capitalism stands for. It does NOT stand for exploiting the many for the benefit of the few, as you would like it to mean. It seems that you are OK with being exploited, as it is their “freedom” to exploit you. You, my friend are a tool.
    “Liberty and justice for all” mean ANYTHING to you!?

    The Constitution was meant to be Amended. End of story. Otherwise the provision for amendments would not exist. Did you have a problem with Bush granting unprecedented power to the Executive branch? No, you probably didn’t because he is a “christian” and Christians can do no wrong in your eyes.

    Are you OK with Theocracy? It seems like you are. (as long as the rulers are Christians) America has never been and hopefully, never will be a theocracy. Theocracy is the antithesis of freedom. The founding fathers knew better than to mix the logic of law with the emotion of religion. Look at the middle east. That’s what modern theocracy does.

    The only defense of the current American system that I have seen you make is that it is “traditional”. That means nothing. You probably think that Copernicus was “evil” for the audacity to suggest that the Earth revolved around the sun when the “established tradition” told otherwise. Ideologues like yourself will always fear paradigm shifts. Change is the only true constant.

    In conclusion, you have admitted to me that you are nothing but a bitter WASP who believes that the “liberty” is only for white Christians with a lot of old money.

    I’m done wasting my time on the willfully ignorant. Have a nice day!

    When you have no facts, you debate with insults.

    Facts are self-evident on this blog, and I have simply called you what you are. If you take that as an insult – that is your problem. I guess the truth hurts.

    You are reacting emotionally because I have exposed flaws in your argument.

    You’ve done no such thing.

    Not once.

    You have not refuted any video clip or mention of Obama’s Marxist ideology that has been documented here.

    You do what all liberal Elitists do when the truth of your insidious ideology is exposed: you claim insult, condescend the expose as less than intelligent or honest, and assert the opposing argument as emotional and of no worth because it does not meet the merits you set.

    Sorry – those bogus attempts do not fly here.

    You are a simple man with simple values, and you have shown your true colors.

    Thank you. Simplicity is of God.

    Complexity is of the devil.

    That is why Satan is always in the details and the gray areas.

    Those who believe differently from you are evil and must be destroyed.

    When your ideology conflicts with liberty; when your politics is class envy and warfare; when you say the Constitution is outdated and a “living document” – you have revealed yourself a domestic enemy to this republic and our liberties.

    I don’t mince words with you people, I do not play get along games. You’re tyrants with a demonic and twisted view of both morality and liberty.

    It is people like you that made the pilgrims flee the ideological fascism of England to come to this country in the first place.

    Your historical ignorance belittles any shred of intelligence that you pretend to have.

    The Pilgrims did not flee religious fascism, and they did not flee England because of fascism you dolt!

    They left England because they considered England as apostate to the Word of God – they wanted a pure society beholden to God and scripture – not the dictates of men and a king. hence the slang “Puritan”.

    You talk about how collectivism is evil.

    It is.

    Christians, as evidenced by your tirades here and the tirades of other so-called “Christians” are groupthinking ditto heads.

    So?

    You want to stamp it out and silence such “group think” don’t you?

    Criminalize Christianity.

    Make such beliefs a declared mental disorder.

    I know what you tyrants want to do. I know why you pretend to be intellectual and fair-minded when you are nothing of the sort.

    You will gleefully herd Christians to guillotines, gas chambers and camps.

    I know what spirit you and your ideological ilk are.

    Why must you Christian “conservatives” think only in Black and White?

    Because that is how God thinks.

    “I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live” – Deuteronomy 30:19

    It seems like “liberty” is marching lock-step with Christianity,

    Bingo. Without Christianity – you have no liberty outside of the tyranny of men.

    [audio src="http://www.borntowin.net/radioprograms/a_christian_ideal.mp3" /]

    Given what you have written, you march to the tyranny of men.

    white supremacy, and crony capitalism.

    I have said nothing about race in our discussion, nor has it been made an issue on this blog.

    YOU have made race an issue.

    Which illustrates you to be the racist here.

    How much white hatred do you have in common with Obama/Wright and Ayers??

    My guess is plenty.

    I see you said nothing about the cronyism in America that keeps people like you and me from ever getting into the top 5% that runs everything in this country, including its government.

    Listen idiot, nothing prevents you from getting into the top 5% BUT YOU.

    I know plenty of self-made millionaires, whom you would never know were wealthy – who took risks and bust their arses everyday to run companies or inventions they have created.

    They’ve had no hand outs, and no hand-ups to achieve what they have.

    Your problem is you think you are OWED a hand out from such people.

    That makes you evil in my book.

    At one time we used to call that kind of sin, coveting. And when you use government to take the wealth from those that produce, to give it to those who did nothing to produce it – it’s called STEALING.

    But now that you have chosen Marxist Socialism – the ability for anyone to get into the top 5% has been eliminated unless it is handed to them by some bureaucrat in D.C.

    Anything larger than what you and government deem *appropriate* for one to have will be confiscated and “spread around” as your messiah told Joe the Plumber.

    Socialism is anathema to liberty. Period.

    It seems like “liberty” is only that which benefits you and yours.

    You have no understanding of what liberty even is.

    What you are saying is, “Screw other Americans, they can suffer as long as I get mine!” Isn’t Greed a deadly sin?

    Listen jerk, you and your evil ilk always like to throw such bullsheist sentiments around. The fact is that you have no idea what kind of charity or service we provide of our own accord to others.

    The only greed here is YOURS, greed that the wealth of others is not yours – so you orchestrate the false notion that anyone with wealth is greedy so you can use that as a pretext for the confiscation of that wealth for yourself.

    The Constitution was meant to be Amended. End of story.

    Excuse your ignorance again. The Founders made PROVISION for Amendments, they did not create the Constitution for the purpose of Amendments. Why bother to have a Constitution at all if the desires of the moment were intended to become law? Let the rule of a dictator or the mob prevail at whatever whim they have.

    Screw your rights. We can amend them away when the majority decides you do not have the right to free speech, exercise of religion, arms and private property – which is really what you people seek to abolish anyways.

    Explain to me the process by which an amendment to the Constitution is permitted and why did the Founders make it as difficult as they did? I don’t read anything in their writings about the Constitution being a ‘living document”. That was the sentiment of liberals and socialists of last century that coined that phrase.

    Did you have a problem with Bush granting unprecedented power to the Executive branch?

    Explain what the Separation of Powers is.

    Theocracy is the antithesis of freedom.

    Listen to the audio link I provided before continuing to make an egregious ignorant imbecile of yourself. You have absolutely NO CLUE what you are talking about.

    Ideologues like yourself will always fear paradigm shifts. Change is the only true constant.

    Some of us are well studied in history, and we know what happens with the kind of paradigm shifts your ideology pushes on a society: mass misery and death.

    In conclusion, you have admitted to me that you are nothing but a bitter WASP who believes that the “liberty” is only for white Christians with a lot of old money.

    I’m definitely a “bitter clinger” to quote your messiah.

    God help you when you make the mistake of thinking you have a mandate to infringe on our liberties and then try and act on it.

    I’m done wasting my time on the willfully ignorant.

    You people are always projecting that which you, yourselves are.
