Having been born and raised south of the Mason-Dixon-Line I have always had a natural resentment of President Lincoln. Not necessarily because he freed the slaves, but because he was responsible for the death of a culture that had flourished down south. A lot of my growing up took place in the last Capitol of the Confederacy and there was a general dislike of all those “Damm  Yankees.”

The news following the election of November 6, 2013 has been forcefully illustrating the fact that America is a nation under judgment. Many people have been trying to warn us that judgment would be soon-coming unless our nation returned to one honoring God’s instructions for His Client Nations. I suspect most readers of these words will not be familiar with the term “Client Nation” since it is not a term commonly used by Pastors or other members of most churches. My understanding; it is a term describing a nation God has selected to use to further the spread of His gospel. Ancient Israel would be the first Client Nation.

We are but 3 days from the most critical election of my lifetime. I am not a prophet and cannot tell you how the election will go. But I am prophet enough to tell you that if the Democrats take control of either House America is in serious trouble. If they take control of both Houses THE LAND OF THE FREE WILL CEASE TO EXIST as we have known it.

In a recent letter to an editor (not the Times Examiner) the writer was asking the publication to provide more liberal cartoons in their weekly paper. I cannot remember a Trump positive cartoon ever being printed in the paper, but there are one or two Trump negative cartoons in most issues. The paper, which probably calls itself neutral is, in my strongly conservative opinion, very Progressive. I am suspecting that the letter was being written in reply to a conservative letter that was being critical of the publisher for not showing a more balanced approach, but I cannot be sure.

In the early 1980s, while I was still employed by the Federal Government, I began looking pretty closely at what was happening politically. I noticed the job I once had was not being run as efficiently and that the entire organization was no longer operating as a political neutral. The goal had ceased to consider the cost and quality of product a priority. Political correctness became more important at the managerial levels. Looking around I found this approach was weaving its merry way throughout federal (and state) bureaucracies. This might be considered the period that “common sense” was finally being evicted from Washington and governmental agencies. Looking at the Washington scene these days we find that eviction was highly successful, not a drop of “common sense” remains there. At least it didn’t until President Trump was elected and immediately started upsetting their applecart.
