Seeing the Future : Our Country in Conflict

At an early age, about five or six, I remember standing in front of our farmhouse, looking east and seeing our nation’s capital in flames.

I was living in Indiana at the time, this was the early fifties and being quite young, I hardly knew what Washington D.C. was. I just knew that sometime in the future, which I perceived to be sometime around the turn of the century, about 2007 or 2008 I knew there would be much conflict, and freedom would hang in the balance. 

At the time I never understood and even though it stuck in my mind, I never really thought too much about it.

Again, in the 1980s, I was reminded by a well-known psychic that the turn of the century would be a trying time for our nation. She said much of the conflict would arise from people not only not instilling common values in their children, but also, even though some of the children were raised correctly, many would stray from the path.

Even then, it didn’t really soak in what spirit was trying to tell me, she said I would be ok as long as I stayed out of the major cities.

The time is here, and I now understand, we, as a nation have done much to undermine our security and freedom. We have forgotten the values that made this country great. The only way to preserve our nation is to return to those principles that our country was founded on and lead our founders to establish the greatest country the world has even known.

The Benghazi Video

We all remember the uproar created when Hillary blamed the attack on our embassy in Benghazi on a UTube video.

Even though that wasn’t the cause of the attack, it created quite a roar, and many still believe it.

About a month after the 2016 election, My wife and I happened to be having dinner at a restaurant in Venice Florida with a friend and a couple of her friends. 

I was sitting next to the gentleman and we were engaging in casual conversation when I by chance brought up the previous election. 

I think I said the wrong thing, the man next to me exploded, “I wouldn’t vote for Hillary on a bet,  Obama and she tried to get me killed.”

Taken aback, I asked why.

It seems he had produced the original video, which was favorable to the Islamic religion. It had been edited by the young producer and changed to cast an unfavorable light on the Muslim people, this was the video the blame for the attacks was placed on.

As a result, this man had all the major networks calling his office, who in turn called him to discover what was going on, when in fact, he knew nothing. 

Finally, the local sheriff gave him a visit and recommended he get out of the country for a while, which he did.

Even though he had nothing to do with the final production of the video and the video, in the end, had nothing to do with the Benghazi raid, his life and the life of his wife, and possibly even his employees was placed in grave danger.

All in the cause of politics and people in government having their own agenda, with little regard for anyone else or their safety.

Neighborhood Politics

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.

Neighborhood Politics

During a neighborhood party here, I got into an argument with my neighbor about presidential politics.

Finally, he asked me why I was such a dedicated Republican.

I told him that my Father and Grandfather were Republicans before me and that I was carrying on the family tradition.

“That’s it ?” said my exasperated neighbor. “What if your Father and Grandfather had been horse thieves ?”

“Well…” I replied, “I suppose then I’d be in the other major political party with you.”

Illegal Immigration Isn’t A Victim-less Crime

Sometime ago, an illegal immigrant who had been deported eight times hit and killed a woman in Louisville Kentucky, leaving behind her son.

It so happens this woman and her son were recent immigrants from Cuba who came here legally.

How ironic, two people who immigrated to this country legally, completed all the paperwork and requirements to become a citizen were killed by someone who continuously broke the law, someone who our government continuously gave another chance by looking the other way.

Now this woman from Cuba is gone and she leaves behind a son who has no relatives in this country. What a shame.

By trying to give someone a break who didn’t deserve a break, a law abiding citizen is given a life sentence of grief they don’t deserve.

Did Divine Intervention Play A Part In the 2016 Election

What has Government Done for You?

There have been many times divine intervention has played a part in the history of our country.

During the American Revolution, George Washington attested to it many times. In the early part of the war, a sudden and unexpected wind and fog kept the British ships from entering New York harbor at a critical time. If they had been able to land, they would have surely defeated our young inexperienced army.

General Washington prayed long and often and those prayers brought help in the nick of time many times over.

There were several times General Washington was shot at point blank and the bullets missed their target, several times he returned from battle untouched with bullet holes in his jacket.

Even the final battle at Yorktown, a strong wind kept the British Fleet from arriving in port with reinforcements.

In the war of 1812, a sudden storm provided rain which in turn prevented our government buildings from being completely destroyed by fire.

Likewise, there are stories from the Civil War and World War 2 of similar circumstances when all hope seemed to be lost when a sudden turn of events prevented sure defeat and turned it into victory.

Likewise, in the 2016 election, it seemed as if Hillary was cruising to a sure win, when suddenly, the tide turned and she was denied her victory. Although she won the popular vote, because of voters voting in strategically placed precincts, Trump was able to snatch victory out of the jaws of defeat.

Just like General Washington, many people were praying for a major change in Washington, to continue down the present course would have meant sure destruction of our republic.

In today’s world the entitlement generations outnumber the working class, the only way for the election to be won by the conservatives was through the electoral college.

Did God once again intervene because of the prayers of well meaning people and once again save our great nation by prompting large numbers of voters in the correct precincts to go vote, and did he inspire Trump to realize the only way he could win was to campaign in the states where he could garner enough votes to win?

So, Where Do We Go From Here?

What has government done for you?

Written By; Gary Wonning

The results of the 2016 election was quite a surprise for many. A lot of people thought Hillary had a free ticket to the white house because of her husband, her views and last but not least because she was a woman.

She was part of the establishment and because she had been involved in the political process for most of her life, she deserved it.

In America, we don’t elect people to the highest office in the land because they deserve it, they have to earn it.

Finally, people woke up and realized that career politicians were running our government and paid no attention to what the voters wanted, it was all about special interests and lobbyists.

No one knows what Trump will do, but at this point in time, the only option is to let time run its course and let him demonstrate by his actions. Talk is cheap.

Who knows, we may all have buyers remorse in a few months, but we knew what Hillary would do, and that wasn’t an option. We would have continued down the path to socialism or worse.

Having said that I think that Trump’s heart is in the right place and he does love America, it may be for his own selfish desires, but I don’t think so.

Many also thought the same about Obama and they turned out to be wrong, so we could be wrong this time, but at least the path to socialism and total control of our lives by government has, at least for a time been slowed.

What that provides us is an opportunity to take a breath and determine what our next actions should be. 

We need to take action and do whatever we can to ensure we never get ourselves into this pickle again. 

YOUR FAVORITE ONLINE POLITICAL STORE

Facing reality, we must realize that as much as we would like to, we can’t blame all of this on Obama. It has been coming to this for years. There are as many bad apples on the right side of the political aisle as there are on the left.

The politicians take many of their marching orders from big business, lobbyists, and the elites, but that doesn’t mean they don’t listen to their constituents.  

They want to get reelected and the only way they can do that is to get your votes. When the general population expresses certain beliefs, the politicians will also chime in and agree with them., it is the only way for them to get reelected.

If the majority begins to express different opinions, the politicians will flip-flop immediately.

Who we elect are our representatives, not our leaders.They represent what we as a nation want. 

Change our wants, we change our representatives.

Our nation has been in moral decline for years, many people no longer have the principles and values they were taught growing up, how can we expect our politicians to act in a decent manner when we don’t?

I feel this election has given us a chance to regroup and rechart our direction. God has given us another chance, are we going to blow it?

The Power Of One Person

photyo of teh book Liberty's secrets

The secrets our founders knew

Written By :Gary Wonning

I often hear how one person can’t make a difference.

So many times this is proven to not be true. There are many instances throughout history that indeed one person did make a difference. There are many times where the actions of one person has lead to a change in history and the course of human events.

Many times it begins on a smaller level and escalates because that action resulted in another person changing his thoughts and he or she also changes their actions and it keeps building until a new movement is created.

Recently, I have written several books and have been reluctant to promote them not knowing how good they really are.

While visiting Orlando, I happened to strike up a conversation with a gentleman who was selling timeshares in the hotel we were staying .

The conversation slowly drifted to the state of affairs we find our country in and I mentioned I had written a book about common sense and how people don’t seem to have it anymore.

What has Government Done for You?

The longer the conversation  went on I realized I needed to give him a copy of my book,”Wisdom of Our Ancestors”.

Which I did, he opened it and read one small paragraph on respect and immediately loved it.

He was  appreciative of my gesture and praised the book I had written.

We thus began to talk more and more and I suddenly realized I had struck a nerve and need to pursue this course of action further. There are many people who feel as we do, we just need to support each other and in that way, we can change a nation.

JIm’s actions, as insignificant as they seemed at the time, may start a movement that can’t be stopped.
