in response to reader comment: What a World Might Be Like Without a Constitutional America

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Feb 17, 2016 at 15:39

We have mused earlier of the courses America has taken in order to negotiate a path to peaceful pursuits of liberty and resonant endeavors; and we must now move towards contemplating alternative paths since it is quite apparent that a global majority is no longer seeking or supporting American guidance to that elusive place of peace, but recognizing also there is no rational alternative.

Taking a lead in from the Wizard of Oz, let us repair to what is behind the curtain of manipulation that is now besetting American politics, which for my generation, began its radicalization right after the detonation of the nukes in Japan in the late forties. Power corrupts the incompetent; nuclear power overwhelms the incompetent; and no mere mortal can comprehend how tragic this really is.

American politics took its extreme left turn just prior to the loss of JFK. Democracy of the common sort had already been compromised worldwide; but to turn the head of the American democratic model required a devious cunning that, strangely enough, could only come from an American defection and rejection of the Constitutional principles to which America was formerly indebted.

Case law before the Supreme Court in the 1960's saw a rejection and sublimation of the Divine attributes that once carried America through more tribulations of law than most can remember; but now those changes commenced a downfall that has yet to see a return to the original principles; Kennedy was a casualty to that end.

You boldly indicate that a time to pray is here and added here is that it is long overdue; and in view of the current events which are Biblical in their implications, the apostasy seems intent to defray and defer to the more secularist attitude of a society that is intent on not seeking Divine intercession, which will cost more dearly than any of the ill-informed can even imagine.

Conversely, the time to pray is still the indicated position that spiritual intelligence is leading to; that in a world where a Constitutional America has already seen the draft form of its eulogy, only the prophetical imperatives that are mostly directed to the salvation of Israel can be counted upon. After all, no one has yet to directly identify America in prophecy, but Israel cannot be missed.
