Default America, the promised land?



Advertise Here

There was a time in the not too distant past the United States of America was the ‘Promised Land’. It was favored by God. He showered his blessings on the country and its people. The people struggled, they built a great nation oftentimes with their bare hands, and picks and shovels. They carved out a great nation. One that became the richest and the most envied if the world.

They had the best schools, the best health care in the world. Everyone who needed medical help came to the US to be healed because there was no place better. They had the best doctors. The schools were the absolute envy of every nation rich or poor. If you graduated from a University in America there was no better education to be had anywhere else.

We had railroads, roads that went everywhere in every direction of the compass, bridges that spanned mighty rivers. We had power plants and massive dams to generate electricity with. An infrastructure that was the most modern and efficient in the world. We had an Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps that was the mightiest in the world and we protected the whole world with it. We did it for free.

Americans had it all. Great forests to build things with. The rivers and lakes teemed with fish. The forest had game everywhere. The fields produced food like none other anywhere else on earth. America had a surplus of food it gave away by the ships full and all over the world. It gave to the needy and the greedy. It gave to its friends and it gave to those who repeatedly said time and again how much they hated us. That wasn’t all, America had the richest treasury on the face of the planet. The people were free to choose what they wanted to do for a living, go to wherever they wanted to go to, people in most countries like us all wanted to be like us. The people of America had freedom. There were factories that produced absolutely everything Americans needed.

In one lifetime all of the mentioned has nearly come to an end. We shut down industries that fed the people and the world for a few fish and birds. We embraced bullcrap propaganda theories that were never proven about the climate. We allowed illegals to flood into the country and they didn’t come by the thousands, they came by the millions. Our infrastructure suffered and in some places America the beautiful began to look like a third world craphole. Trash alongside roadways, slums, junk cars abandoned along the highways. Tent cities and industries along the sidewalks in our cities. Bums and derelicts camping out on our streets and using sidewalks as their bathrooms. Our manufacturing base withered and died. Factories shuttered up their windows and doors. The people became a consumer society, not a producing society.

Our religions were ridiculed and then made out to be a laughing stock. The father figure was cast aside to be replaced with feminism. A dogma straight out of the Communist Manifesto. A segment of our population began to be born and raised without a father figure. Welfare became a way of life, an occupation. Our infrastructure has fallen to below third world status in many areas and there is no money to make the needed repairs. Our factories were sent overseas. Illegal immigration has become an invasion. The richest treasury is broke. We gave it all away. Our forest no longer supports game and our rivers are polluted and the fish are gone.

How long will God favor a nation that has embraced perversion, the systematic implementation of an anti-God stance in everything that once made the nation a powerhouse? We elect traitors to our government. We allow our children to be schooled by people who hate America and its values. We are allowing people to immigrate into America who has told us in no uncertain terms they want to kill us. We throw our money away by the trainload and we get nothing in return. Our own citizens are suffering because they appear to be powerless to stop what is happening. I wonder, will God turn his back on America, or will he loose his fateful lightning on it?

I truly believe that the highlights of God's plan for America is to 1) show the blessings of being a Christian nation and 2) to help facilitate ending the holocaust and the establishment of Israel then later 3) to be the example of the removal of his blessing after turning away from him and embracing things like greed and lust.

I think we are in a time of prosperity that without repentance and revival will end with a fall.

It was NEVER that good.

I know enough of my families history and OTHER histories to know that life here was always a struggle, and that people were just as ornery, stupid, and corrupt back then as they are now.

Don't worry, Covid-19 will kill off the vast majority of the older Republicans/conservatives/patriots and the young socialists will take over. The few older survivors will be the only ones who understand why things failed and how good it used to be. From this vantage point, we are doomed.


Oh, and yes, it was that good. I grew up in a conservative Connecticut. It was an amazing place. Today it's a restrictive, bureaucratic hell hole, with rules and regulations to prevent every expression of freedom. It's the "NO" department.

To those who say America is no longer any good, I ask you- What county is
better?

Sure America has changed. Sure there are parts that are worse than before.

But most of us now carry the equivalent of a computer in our pockets, and
the media tells us bad news all day because good news isn't news to them.

When my Father finished his training in Texas in about 1960,
before he shipped off to Germany as a young Doctor, he had a
friend who was black and a fellow Army Doctor. This poor man
had to drive his family to California and knew he would not
be able to stop in a motel because most
would not let a black family stay there.

Is that, the America you miss?

A few years later we had the draft, and Mohammed Ali had to go to Jail
and give up his title because this almost illiterate man did not want
to go into the Army. We were fighting a war in
Vietnam, that the Politicians would not let us
win, and even put the wrong
powder in the bullets which killed soldiers
whose M16A1s jammed thanks to it.

Is that what you miss?

We have the only superpower in the world, and before the Democrats caused
a panic due to a China flu, we had the greatest economy in the World by far.
If there is a better country out there please educate me what it is.

All good points. Some of America past was better than now and some of the current America is better.

Don't believe in any gods. America has sold out to greed and cheap illegal labor and will soon be controlled my Mexico. God has nothing to do with it....just greed and the filthy dems have done the job.

Great points if we were in 2015, we aren't.

President Trump is enforcing our Borders, and
as a result, 2019 gave us the lowest unemployment
in Decades.

Sure the Liberal media wants to tell us that things
are miserable so they can save us with Shotgun Joe,
but I am here to tell you President Donald Trump is
the best dam President since Ronny, and is fighting
for what's right on Twitter every day, even on days
he is wrong.

I don't agree with him a hundred percent, and voted
for Cruz in the Primaries, but he is a lot better President
than I expected.

People who no longer love America need to take a vacation
in Mexico to educate themselves. I lived in Panama and the
Philippines and know a Great country when I live in it.

Name a nation that was better! At least the USA has allowed folks to be ornery, stupid, corrupt, and imperfect with the protections of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. But America has also been a blessing to many and we've had the freedom to be benevolent, creative, inventive, intelligent, charitable, strong, and free as well.

Take THAT Venezuela, China, Cuba, etc.!!

History teaches us that nations and empires come and go. No nation has a guarantee of lasting forever and that includes our own. I read an article a while ago that categorized the eight stages of the rise and fall of nations. It was pretty thought-provoking. Without all the details, here are the stages:

1. From bondage to spiritual growth.

2. From spiritual growth to great courage.

3. From courage to liberty.

4. From liberty to abundance.

5. From abundance to complacency.

6. From complacency to apathy.

7. From apathy to dependence.

8. From dependency to bondage.

I believe that any casual observer would have to place the U.S. at level 7 and headed to level 8. Sad, but accurate. Yet, I would also observe that I really don't know anywhere that is any better than the U.S. I used to think that perhaps Canada was pretty good, but they've headed left even faster than the U.S.

He won't. If you look at the signs, we are already under judgement.

Quote:
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” - Ronald Reagan

Free stuff. Plain and simple.

Half the country is in God's corner, half in satans. Right now the light side is on top.
You can see by the state of the world, satan is working over time.

My Father moved us form the mid west to out west in the early 60s.
He showed us how to live off the land. He said, you get far enough from man, you can live out your lives in peace.

He never figured on libtards taking over. They had to wait until the greatest generation was all by gone or feeble. Us boomers are now under fire by the globalist punks, because they were raised by the schools instead of US.

This still is the promised land, we just have to weed out the bad apples.

I think things were best in this country in the 1950's. We had just emerged victorious from WWII and were reaping the benefits. The economy was good and a household only needed one income. Even mediocre jobs could support a family. The environment was still in good shape and the food was wholesome.

Now we live in a toxic environment, housing is largely unaffordable to the younger generation, and our food is full of chemicals, hormones, and God knows what.

I'll take today any day over the period when we had to worry about some crazy drunk Russian dropping nukes on us. Commies putting nukes in Cuba so we wouldn't have five minutes warning before the mushroom clouds showed up. Luckily, I wasn't around for most of that craziness, but I was raised in a house that had a fallout shelter in the back yard.
What's going on now is just a bunch of whiny politicians scaring people into voting for them, and preachers trying to convince everyone that if they don't thrown money at the church they'll go to hell.
If anything, we're turning into a country of overfed, whiny punks who live to have something to complain about. This is the best country in the world by far.

Actually yes. While those actions are despicable, a business owner should be able to choose his clientele. He should be able to sell only to one-legged hispanic lesbian midgets with the clap if he so chooses.

I read mostly American social and economic histories and other than the 3 postwar decades and the mid 1920’s it’s been nothing but a hard struggle for most working Americans.
