Letter: U.S. moving toward Socialism

To the editor:

Please stand up.

Aristotle once wrote that, in a democracy, people get the government they deserve. In essence, we are responsible for the direction our country is heading, for the leaders we choose, and we’ll be responsible for the condition our country is in as we pass it to our children.

This is not intended to be another political complaint, but instead an impassioned plea for all to stand for our beliefs.

For decades, we’ve been told killing unborn babies was legal in our society, celebrating the real reason for Christmas was not permitted, and the Commandments are no longer applicable in our halls of justice.

Now we’re being told we’ll be forced to financially support contraception and the killing of innocents.

Yes, it’s been said these charges will be covered by insurance companies. But, who pays the insurance premiums?

It’s time we stand up.

I’ve read that 78 percent of people in our country are professed Christians, 2 percent of the population is atheist, and the rest don’t really care.

Really? Then someone tell me why the vast majority of us are being kicked around by the few. I once believed our country was governed by the majority, despite all evidence to the contrary, I guess.

It’s time we stand up.

This year’s election could very well be the most important election we’ll ever have. Religious leaders have said this for months.

This year’s election could also be the last one we’ll ever have.

Our country, in my opinion, is headed for Marxist Socialism, where God is relegated to a Sunday morning pastime, unwelcome in public, and expelled from the affairs of state.

If the Christians of this country don’t exercise our God-given responsibility, speaking together to defend our founding principles, we may never get the chance again.

It’s time we stand up.

We have a responsibility to pass on to our children a future our fathers died to secure for us.

Did we get this life because our parents were content to be entertained by reality TV while the reality of their own lives was being stolen from them?

Do we really think our God will honor our inaction in the face of the atheistic onslaught that is turning our face from Him?

We sing to our God our praise, thanksgiving and allegiance in our churches regularly. It’s time we put our faith into action outside of church.

It’s time we stand up.

My good friends, my fellow Christian citizens, it’s time we make our voices heard. If we do not write letters to our elected officials, we are not raising a voice.

The only voices they will have to listen to are those who would destroy our children’s future, and we will be to blame.

If we do not vote for our faith in our public forums, our faith — the faith upon which our

country was founded — will no longer have a voice.

It’s time we stand up.
