God and country

By Staff | Dec 28, 2020

To the editor:

I am very confused about how the education systems and political parties have been able to get God out of schools, prayers and so on!

The Democrats have been responsible for these changes.

Democracy is the greatest concept for a country; socialism and communism have not ever worked to the benefit of the citizens, only the “Big Government.” Look at Cuba, Russia, Venezuela, etc.

Back when the pilgrims left Europe and came to America to get away from “the greedy king” and his tyranny, they were also exercising the freedom to praise God who has blessed America in a multitude of ways. “Freedom” — and not free for anyone who doesn’t want to work!

Our schools should be teaching children American values and principles and teach correct facts about American history. Our children are not being taught the basic knowledge of civics, American history, the founding of our country and what makes America truly “exceptional!” We owe it to our youth to teach them history in the way that promotes and preserves America’s value system and culture. You don’t live in America, America lives in you!

We need to not back down from the Pelosi Democrats and the “socialist squad” that is in charge of the agenda.

Each generation must defend our freedoms from emerging threats. And the threats right now are coming from “the radical leftists who have taken over the Democrat party. They don’t recognize basic rights guaranteed by the Constitution (free speech and gun owners rights to name just a few.) They have aligned themselves with all kinds of radical groups who want to defund the police, open the borders, abolish private health care and insurance and more!

The world is a better place because of America. That’s one of the reasons so many immigrants try to come to America or want to. America was founded on the principles of God, love your neighbor as yourself, love your enemies.

He gave us the Ten Commandments to live life on the right side.

The Bible is the oldest and greatest book ever written and tells us that … “the Lord is a holy God. He will not forgive your rebellion and your sins.. If you forsake the Lord and serve foreign gods, he will turn and bring disaster on you and make an end of you after all he has been good to you.” — Joshua 24. 19-20

God Bless!
