Texans seem to be very defensive these days. I'm reminded about some quotes from the past that are proving true today. [b]President John Adams once said, "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." -October 11, 1798. [/b] And George Washington said: "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and Bible" Thomas Jefferson wrote: "God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis,[b] a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift from God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, and that His justice cannot sleep forever."[/b] The [b]revisionist historians[/b] have tried to "cover up" God himself by not allowing recent generations to know that [b]America was once a nation of religious people.[/b] Now, over half the people in America are not well informed and are willing to [b]believe the spoon fed propaganda[/b] from the Democrats and Republicans. Where there is no God there is chaos, and remember freedom of the press means the media will be free to report what it wants you to know. When destructive and irresponsible freedom has been granted boundless space. Society appears to have little defense against the abyss of human decadence. Life organized legalistically has thus shown its inability to defend itself against the corrosion of evil. Socialism of any type and shade leads to a total destruction of the human spirit and to a leveling of mankind into death. In American democracy at the time of its birth, all individual human rights were granted because man is God's creature. That is, freedom was given to the individual conditionally, in the assumption of his constant religious responsibility. Turning to socialism is a false and dangerous current and the danger is already here and the situation is much, much worse. Thus, Obama can try putting duct tape on a sinking ship but only when most Americans turn to God will the storm subside. Only then will America be able to fix the problem. William Penn wrote, [b]"Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants."[/b] And James Madison said in 1778 to the General Assembly of the state of Virginia. We've staked our future on our ability to follow the Ten Commandments with all of our heart." God Bless [/quote] I don't believe evolved dependency of religion would obliterate the constitution. Religion was very important to people when the constitution was founded. I'm not saying religion isn't important these days but more and more people are able to survive and be happy without claiming to be a part of religions these days. I still believe people understand the basic human rights and can apply these to accommodate the lack of dedicated religion in society today. I think it's foolish to claim without religion chaos would ensure. It would only happen if your that weak of a mind to let something like that drive you to chaos. [/quote] It's not really a religion thing. You see, many countries are very religious. And still they suffer. It's really a God thing. But then that becomes a question of faith. The US founders had a lot of faith in God. They believed that any chance of future prosperity would only come if they stayed true to God. It seems they were right. [/quote]
Video Reference for today's overheard conversation during my lunch.
EDIT: A Video a commenter on here showed me. Seemed very on the spot.
I love going out to eat here in Texas. We have a ridiculously high selection of restaurants to choose from so I have the luxury of most time being able to eat at a place I've never eaten before.
That being said I must say the chatter I've picked up through the last month or so have been in one word... INSANE!
Everyone and I mean EVERYONE is talking about how they can't stand what our government has become. Yes Obama is a big part of it but it's more than that now. They say it's the entire system practically!
Today I overheard a big group of people talking about the newly signed UN treaty banning guns. They were talking about what they would do if someone ever came to take theirs away and it wasn't pretty...
I just want to say this now... NO one is going to accept that here...
This leads me to wonder... Is this planned?... I can't imagine our government wouldn't know the reaction of the people if they were to try and do a gun ban...
This makes me curious that what if they are trying on purpose to piss the country off into a violent confrontation? I honestly don't know what the benefit of that would be but they can't surely be so stupid to think that half the country would rather die than lose their defensive tools?
I don't really know a solution to either side but I'm telling this chatter is not just small talk. These people are dead serious about this and everyone is getting grouped up on the same idea. I heard many heres heres in response to this groups conversation. Remember I usually go to a new restaurant everytime so it's not the same people I'm hearing this from it seems to be everyone around here.
Has anyone else heard from the general population talk like this?
