Someone once said, the Declaration of Independence “doesn’t guarantee happiness, only the pursuit of it. You have to catch up with it yourself.”
There is no doubt America is being assaulted by an administration that is tyrannical, attempting to rule through personal policy initiatives – not law – only because the American people have become rebels against their own foundational principles and have eaten the fruit of their own ways.
But all is not lost.
Let’s take a look at what took place just last week in America on the behalf of a people of America. Instead of magnifying crimes – which only strengthens tyranny – the American people are beginning to magnify the law unto judgment in order to establish righteousness and peace (Isaiah 51:4):
- Operation Rescue let out a press release this week stating that in 2013 alone, 30 abortion clinics have been closed down, more than doubling the amount of closures over all of last year.
- A tea party group in southern California held an “Impeach Obama” demonstration on a major freeway overpass, holding signs such as “Remember Benghazi” and “Obama Lies.” Their protest brought so much attention that some claim it backed up traffic for more than 10 miles.
- It was also reported that officials in eight northern Colorado counties united in opposition to the state’s new gun control laws and oil and gas regulations, going so far as considering seceding and forming a new state, North Colorado. Citizens also successfully petitioned to recall two senators, Senate President John Morse and Sen. Angela Giron who continuously ignored their constituents and voted for gun control legislation.
- The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) filed a lawsuit against the IRS on behalf of 25 tea party groups that were targeted when seeking tax-exempt status. Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the ACLJ, stated, “The IRS and the federal government are not going to get away with this unlawful targeting of conservative groups. … The lawsuit sends a very powerful message to the IRS and the Obama administration – including the White House: Americans are not going to be bullied and intimidated by our government.”
- After pressure from anti-religious groups to keep prayer out of high school graduations, Liberty High School Valedictorian Roy Costner IV took to the podium, tore up his pre-approved speech and instead thanked his parents for leading him to the Lord at a young age. He then proceeded to pray the Lord’s Prayer. The crowd burst into applause and cheers so loud Costner’s voice was almost drowned out. Costner’s prayer has received worldwide support and media coverage.
Edmund Burke (1729–1797), Irish statesman and political theorist and philosopher who served for many years in the House of Commons of Great Britain as a member of the Whig party, said it well: “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” Liberals count on it.
