For almost 100 years, now, government meddling and citizen dependency on government have escalated beyond anything that those among our Founding Fathers who were most ardent about the defense of human rights ever dreamed should happen. If that escalation continues, then our Nation shall utterly fail and fall, just as every other top-heavy, suppressive, invasive government has fallen, under its own weight and excess, crushing the hope, joy, peace, and life out of its citizenry. These United States of America CANNOT afford a government that makes robots out of citizens and businesses. We, also, can no longer tolerate the corruption of spirit that happens when government permits or encourages us to be a nation of people who sit around eating bonbons or being enthralled by entertainments. Remember the "bread and circuses" days of the Roman Empire!... and where is that today? Furthermore, we CANNOT afford an invasive government that micromanages our daily lives, while destroying the spirit and language of our God-given Constitution. We must ALL turn from our self-indulgences and excesses. We must ALL return to the God of the Bible, and to the godly, biblical wisdom of the Constitution that He alone has granted to us.
With the blessed election of Paul Ryan to take on the duties of Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, it is incumbent upon all U.S. citizens to pitch in and begin tightening our belts and that we might repair our Nation. I just sent the following message to my U.S. Representative Joe Courtney and my U.S. Senators Murphy and Blumenthal, because we are in such desperate moral, spiritual, and financial trouble in our Nation.
"I most strenuously urge you to support and work with Speaker Paul Ryan in the desperate need for the overhaul of most of our current government programs. We have had close to 100 years of increasing government size and dependency. We MUST return the nation to the people, so that each citizen can and shall exercise more authority and responsibility for her/his own life. We MUST return to a literal interpretation of our Constitution so that freedom and opportunity can return to this Nation. Thank you for your time and consideration."
