As I sit and reflect on the historic vote the House will cast today, this impeachment really should not surprise us. I’m not talking about the fact of the Democrats who have sought to impeach Trump from day one. I’m not talking about Pelosi who said impeachment has been underway for over 2 years. I am talking about the significant change in our country that has altered who we are.
Our nation was founded on some very basic principles. The founding fathers, that Nancy Pelosi invoked in her press conference, put at risk everything they had. Not in pursuit of personal wealth or prosperity, but for a simple term called freedom. They realized that a divine Creator gave us unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
But the Democrats in the House have lost sight of this. In the very Declaration of Independence, 27 grievances were laid out before the British monarchy. While those all related to the experiences in those days, many of these can transition to our day. Taxes without representation, anyone recall some of the Democrats radical tax proposals? Or maybe Pelosi should read the charge of preventing an appropriate trial.
This rule of law is what Democrats want. It’s an absolute level of rule, which is far from the nation we were founded to be. The land of the free and home of the brave will become the land of the wicked and home of the hopeless if Democrats have their way. But this really shouldn’t surprise us. Why? We have long departed from the nation we once were.
We are no longer a nation of morals and values. There is no longer any value in humanity. Simply, we are a nation of convenience and greed. The morality we had during our nations youth are no longer present. Morals are not legislated by a government, but are something that is driven at a higher level. CS Lewis defined morals as:
(1) to ensure fair play and harmony between individuals; (2) to help make us good people in order to have a good society; and (3) to keep us in a good relationship with the power that created us.
Based on his definition, it is easy to understand that personal faith plays an important role in our morals. Why should we expect any of our politicians to have morals, when the foundations of morals no longer exist in our society. The Wall Street Journal reports that religious involvement and commitment in our country continues to decline.
In the past, nearly 80% of Americans identified with some form of faith and attended church. Now, it’s a mere 43%. There is no moral foundation to build upon, we simply do what feels good and feels right. There’s no concern for anyone else, it’s just a selfish mentality all around.
It’s easy to see how the Democrats feel no remorse for making shambles of our Constitution. I completely understand how they can lie and not feel guilty. For a party, that has no concern for killing millions of babies through abortion, stealing millions of dollars from working Americans and forcing American’s into submission through socialism, what’s impeaching a President. After all, this impeachment really shouldn’t surprise us.
