While celebrating the 4th of July, sitting around, thanking God for the freedoms that our forefathers fought and died for, I got a chill down my spine. You know, like the kind you get when it feels like there is someone else in the room with you but there really isn’t!
A recent study shows that almost 80% of Americans feel that our founding fathers would be very disappointed in where we are at today as a country.
As many of you know, I cover some pretty crazy stories on my radio show, stories that our founding fathers would be repulsed by. We now live in a country that supposedly considers the following things to be “bad”:
- Traditional Marriage
- Strict adherence to the Constitution
- Moral Values
- Child Innocence
- Self Reliance
- Parental rights
And these things to be “good”:
- Same Sex Marriage
- Polygamy (next)
- Loosely interpreting the Constitution
- Liberal Progressiveness
- Moral Relativism
- Child Sacrifice
- Government Reliance
Really? Some of you are saying, “Joe what have you been drinking all week?” Apple juice and water, because I refuse to drink the Kool-Aid being provided by the current administration and the progressives.
Do you need a few examples? Here’s a few of my favorites:
We have people picketing “equality for all”, but it’s not really for “all”. It’s only for everyone on the left. And is it really equality that they’re looking for, or something else?
In California the voters have now voted twice to protect traditional marriage. The Supreme Court, for clarity, did not rule it as unconstitutional. They ruled that the plaintiffs had no right to fight it. Period.
Supporters of same sex marriage crying “equality for all” said all they wanted was the same rights as married couples. Apparently they didn’t do their homework because in 1999 the California Legisloonies passed a law called the Domestic Partner law. This law is word-for-word the same as the marriage laws here in California. The only exception made a point of calling out “Man and Woman” in the marriage law and “Same Sex partners” in the Domestic Partner law. A progressive play on words or a lie? Did they not know they already had “equality” according to the law?
As LGBTQ groups fight for equal rights they really mean that they want to choose what rights “they” have and what rights “we” have. I use those words because “they” divide the words like that. The California Legisloonies decided that no matter what, business and government agencies will accommodate a person of the LGBTQ community. Sounds good. But let’s take a look at the transgender person on a high school campus.
If a person born with male body parts decides that they now want to live as a female while in high school, that young person now gets to share the girls locker room and bathroom while your 14+ year-old daughters get to be exposed a “different” lifestyle. And that young man, who is living as a young woman, gets to play soccer or volleyball or any other sport on an all-female team. Does that sound like its fair? I think not! Study after study shows that the physical abilities of males and females are different. Will we now change the Olympics to accommodate?
We are being barraged with laws, regulations, and mandates that go against our basic internal values as a country and a people.
We are becoming a society of “me”. If I‘m gay, you better do it my way or else you’re a “hater”. If I don’t want to work, you better take care of me. And if I do work, you better pay me what I want. If I chose not to take responsibility for myself, then the government needs to step in and give me that money or the abortion or whatever else I need. But don’t question me about what I’m doing or why. And definitely don’t dare to disagree with me.
These are not the principles that this country was founded on.
Sometimes it feels like the earth is spinning in reverse and the inmates are running the asylum! But just because a group is making the most noise does not mean that they are in the majority.
