Today’s liberals, like progressives since the time of Woodrow Wilson, have most often viewed the U.S. Constitution contrary to the way it was held by America’s founding fathers. “Truths” in the document that has made the nation the most envied ever to exist are not so “self-evident” to those who would take it apart and reconstruct it to fit their every ideological wind of doctrine.
The Constitution is, to them, not a solid pillar of security to which to tether the ship of state on the exceedingly dangerous waters of the times. It is a living, breathing organism─or, at least in their thinking should be — that changes–or should do so─with the changing morality and social mores of any given period in the country’s history.
Shaped by entertainment media of our time and pushed along by the propagandist mainstream news media of the past half century, the assaults on our founding documents have been made in ways not unlike the assault these same entities have inflicted on our culture─through the pseudo-science they champion. I refer to, of course, their religion─evolution.
Their audience, the American people, is not without fault in the societal dissipation. We are all at fault for allowing the persistent undoing of the Judaeo-Christian model within which Jefferson, Franklin, Madison, Washington and the rest framed this republic. Like the Reverand Jeremiah Wright correctly stated (even though in a totally skewed context), “America’s chickens have come home to roost.”
We are now on the fast track to enslavement foretold in fiction by British writer George Orwell in his famous novel 1984. Over the years, this column and many others have presented biblical prophetic truth about the eventual coming of Big Brother, the fictional dictator of Orwell’s story.
We now have seen the evolution of that character as he came to life on our front pages. As a matter-of-fact, “evolution” is the very term the most recent chief architect of the Orwell, Big Brother construct uses to shmooze us with his political rhetoric. He explained to us his changing coming of age in his thinking upon the issue of homosexual marriage, as but one example:
As “a presidential candidate, Barrak Obama’s position hardened. In 2008, he visited the Saddleback Church in Orange County, Calif., where the pastor Rick Warren asked him to define marriage. ‘I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman,’ Mr. Obama said. ‘For me, as a Christian, it is also a sacred union.’” (Gay Stolberg, “Obama’s Views on Gay Marriage,” New York Times June 18, 2011)
The former president’s “evolving” has brought him since that 2011 declaration, of course, to full support for “gay marriage”─which, in God’s economy must be considered an oxymoron, at the very least. It should now be increasingly obvious to even the most casual observer that the former president, and many of both major political parties have “evolved” in their understanding of the Constitution of the United States of America. There is simply so little pushback on the overt intrusions into the citizens’ rights and privacy as to be the equivalent of a complete lack of resistance.
The exposure of IRS vile intimidation of the Tea Party and others who opposed Obama’s re-election in 2012 would have, had it been a conservative core of IRS operatives working against a Democrat candidate, brought any Republican president down. The media propagandists would have been non-stop in the diatribes, as they were in the case of Richard Nixon and the Watergate break-in. Nixon’s cover-up and involvement never came close to this grab for power and influence over America’s political process.
Likewise, the Benghazi matter, with the subsequent lying and cover-up far exceeded any political evil in Nixon’s day. Nobody died in the Watergate scandal. At least four Americans serving our nation honorably died as a result of ineptitude, deliberate refusal to intervene, or both, in the Libyan massacre.
The Big Brother-like data collection apparatus and process used against U.S. citizens, exposed some years ago by National Security Agency (NSA) consultant Edward Snowden should have had every U.S. Senator and congressman up in arms. But, with few exceptions, government officials during the last administration was in lockstep with the obfuscation of the facts.
We were told by the administration and by the slavish national mainstream news media that all three branches, executive, legislative, and judicial were well briefed on the fact that NSA gathered such data. Trouble is, none of us knew about it. It was done all in the name of the war on terrorism we were told–an enemy the Obama Administration refused to identify–the Jihadist-Islamists world.
And, yes, George W. Bush and his administration’s culpability in all of the liberty-destruction involved with the Patriot Act deserve a proper part of the shame. Der Fuehrer could have provided the manual for the march toward the installation of Antichrist that we see happening in America and the world to the present hour. Hopefully, the Trump Administration will change course.
The best way to take control over a people and control them utterly is to take a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible reductions. In this way the people will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes can be reversed. (Adolf Hitler, from a speech delivered on 6 November 1933) 
I’m in agreement with Hal Lindsey, that point of non-recoverability has been reached and America’s demise is likely irreversible. But, we who name the name of Christ have “hope” that is not a gamble, but a sure thing. “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:13).
