It is our country’s Birthday. I celebrate and thank the Lord for being born in the United States. I say this despite my major ancestral history which deals with slavery and segregation. I blame no one today for what went down in the past. Those who are responsible are experiencing their eternal fate. Some I will meet when I go to be with the Lord because HE forgave them for their sins just like he forgave me through His son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Currently, as much as I love this country, I am not happy with its direction. Economically, we could be like Greece faster than any of us think. Spiritually, we continue to ignore the Word of God. Well, God is not mocked! I pray for a turnaround.
Enjoy today your celebrations with family and friends
I saw a meme posted by a friend who is a liberal Democrat and who is further down that leftist road some months ago. It described how Greece was going to fix its financial situation with a leftist economical approach. Now that Greece is in default, it obvious that those leftist measures did not work. This person has not posted anything on Greece since then. Really, what happen to Greece is a tribute to the consequences of decades of government giving nationwide free provisions without the finances to pay for them. It is failed socialism. Look what Greece is doing to its citizens now!

On this great holiday, go here to take the full version of the citizenship test. I correctly answered 45 out of 50. The question on the Indian tribes was one of the questions I incorrectly answered. Have a wonderful Independence Day and enjoy the patriotic music features.
Oh, I like this Citizens for Freedom meme, but it does remind me of the success of liberal/lefty Democrats in projecting the beliefs stated in yellow on to the right thinking conservatives and Republicans. The one thing that was left out in yellow from decades ago is uncaring rich fat cats. Now most of the folks among my christian Democratic Party family and friends would object to being called anti-God and amoral even though they turn their head the other way on such super pro democratic issues as late-term abortion and promoting being gay as an alternative lifestyle to young school-age children as you can read here.
One can find non believers in God in any political party, but there are Democrats who are making the effort to do away with God in their party’s platform. I remember the shock of hurt on my mother’s face in watching the Democrats boo God during their 2012 national presidential convention. As much as my mother loves certain TV preachers and prophecy teachers, she ignored them when they spoke on political issues, because they are all Republican and conservative. Today she has a hard time trying to ignore them and that it hurt for her to realize how far the Democratic Party moved away from the ways of God.
When it comes to thinking for oneself, for me, it is about escaping group black think. I do not have to think a certain way because of the color of my skin. I am in that category of believing in, honoring and loving God and loving my country and the Democrats continue to be successful with the deep put down of those in that category. I still want to visit other countries, but do not want to live out my life as a citizen anywhere but here in the United States. What is wrong with that?The beliefs stated in yellow in the above meme are not representative of those on the right. We need to increase our preparation for success in keeping the Democratic left from being able to negatively define us on the Republican and conservative right.
