Crisis plagues the remains of what was once the greatest nation on earth. For over one hundred and fifty years, the United States had been a beacon of power, prosperity and peace; but when a select group of intellectuals spear-headed a movement to strip the halls of academia, the processes of the judiciary and the public arena of the richness of her proud heritage, things began to change.
So subtle was the shift, even those who should have known the difference were lulled to sleep by the misinformation, misinterpretation and outright distortion of the founding principles upon which the nation was built. Soon, instead of looking to the One who had so masterfully orchestrated the birth and government of the country, her people began believing they themselves were responsible and as such, expecting the government to cure the ills that began to gnaw at her very foundations.
As the nation began to accept mores and practices once considered heinous and punishable by law, her prosperity began to unravel. Desperate and misinformed voters, looking to the federal government to solve the economic crisis that was inevitable, elected a radical socialist leader, who used his executive powers to throw the nation into such immorality and debt that it seemed she might never recover. Using his influence to play upon the now ignorant masses, he backed out of what many deemed an unnecessary fight and left her open to what became the greatest wave of attack and devastation the world had ever known.
Renowned terrorist organizations invaded, first by air, leaving in ruins her coastal cities and devastating many of the inland commerce centers as well, then with biological weapons that poisoned her food supply. In a matter of a couple short years, they succeeded in bringing her to her knees.
It was then that the horror really began.
Frustrated and misguided vigilantes assassinated the president and many of his cabinet. As lack, disease and chaos ravaged the nation, what was left of the liberal Congress and activist judges determined that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were too antiquated to serve modern society, so they were reinterpreted to set in place a new “Democratic Regime” in an effort to restore the nation to her former glory.
“The State” as they now referred to themselves, promptly dissolved the hierarchy of state government, leaving only each state’s governor as an underling to the centralized powers located in the renamed capitol of “D.C.” – Democratic City. Military forces were withdrawn from every foreign field and employed to enforce the new ordinances set forth by the new government and to keep the peace — a full time job.
Christianity, its practice and any mention of the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth was outlawed and punishable by imprisonment, or worse. The children of known practicing Christians were removed from their homes, institutionalized and reared by the state in an effort to ensure the sect could not perpetuate itself even clandestinely. Those adults deemed less dangerous were sent to internment camps to provide labor for the new regime, and thus the “common good.”
Free trade, private education and ownership were now a thing of the past. “The State” administered all supply, owned all property and determined what was taught in the ‘public’ schools. Still, the nation suffered. Nothing but fear, mistrust, lack and crime seemed to flourish.
As foretold by founding father Benjamin Franklin, when the nation forgot God it became “a byword and a reproach” to the rest of the world. The longer they went on, refusing to seek Him, the more they convinced themselves that He had truly abandoned America…
