A Voice of Reason Written in Biblical Prose

The following was received via e-mail. The author was identified only as the wife of a pastor and the text was written in biblical prose. Biblical prose aside the author's message is reasoned and powerful. Everyone who reads this will be left with a feeling of concern at the very least, and possibly a feeling of outright fear for our country and her future.

The only editorial comment made by Rational Nation USA would be the opening paragraph should not be taken literally as there are still more people with ethical standards and initiative than not. The literal wording should taken more as a warning and a wake up call.

And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land
called America, having lost their morals, their initiative, and their
will to defend their liberties, chose as their Supreme Leader that
person known as "The One."

He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning; but He
hypnotized the people telling them, "I am sent to save you." My lack
of experience, my questionable ethics, my monstrous ego, and my
association with evil doers are of no consequence. I shall save you
with hope and Change. Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the land
that he who preceded me is evil, that he has defiled the nation, and
that all he has built must be destroyed.

And the people rejoiced, for even though they knew not what "The One"
would do, he had promised that it was good; and they believed. And
"The One" said " We live in the greatest country in the world. Help me
change everything about it!" And the people said, "Hallelujah! Change
is good!"

Then He said, "We are going to tax the rich fat-cats." And the people
said "Sock it to them!" "And redistribute their wealth." And the
people said, "Show us the money!" And then he said, "redistribution of
wealth is good for everybody." And Joe the plumber asked, " Are you
kidding me? You're going to steal my money and give it to the
deadbeats??" And "The One" ridiculed and taunted him, and Joe's
personal records were hacked and publicized. One lone reporter asked,
"Isn't that Marxist policy?" And she was banished from the kingdom!

Then a citizen asked, "With no foreign relations experience and having
zero military experience or knowledge, how will you deal with radical
terrorists?" And "The One" said, "Simple.. I shall sit with them and
talk with them and show them how nice we really are; and they will
forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!" And the people
said, "Hallelujah!! We are safe at last, and we can beat our weapons
into free cars for the people!"

Then "The One" said "I shall give 95% of you lower taxes." And one,
lone voice said, "But 40% of us don't pay ANY taxes." So "The One"
said, "Then I shall give you some of the taxes the fat-cats pay!" And
the people said, "Hallelujah! Show us the money!" Then "The One" said,
"I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell
your homes!" And the people yawned and the slumping housing market collapsed.

And He said.. "I shall mandate employer-funded health care for every
worker and raise the minimum wage. And I shall give every person
unlimited healthcare and medicine and transportation to the clinics."
And the people said, "Give me some of that!"

Then he said, "I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas." And
the people said, "Where's my rebate check?" Then "The One" said, "I
shall bankrupt the coal industry and electricity rates will
skyrocket!" And the people said, "Coal is dirty, coal is evil, no more
coal! But we don't care for that part about higher electric rates." So
"The One" said, Not to worry. If your rebate isn't enough to cover
your expenses, we shall bail you out. Just sign up with the ACORN and
you troubles are over!"

Then He said, "Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let's
grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education, free lunches,
free medical care, bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing..." And the
people said, "Hallelujah!" and they made him king!

And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and
ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers. Others
simply gave up and went out of business and the economy sank like unto
a rock dropped from a cliff. The bank banking industry was destroyed.
Manufacturing slowed to a crawl. And more of the people were without a
means of support.

Then "The One" said, "I am the "the One"- The Messiah - and I'm here
to save you! We shall just print more money so everyone will have
enough!" But our foreign trading partners said unto Him. "Wait a
minute. Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will have
to pay more... And "The One" said, "Wait a minute. That is unfair!!"

And the world said, "Neither are these other idiotic programs you have
embraced. Lo, you have become a Socialist state and a second-rate
power. Now you shall play by our rules!"

And the people cried out, "Alas, alas!! What have we done?" But yea
verily, it was too late. The people set upon The One and spat upon him
and stoned him, and his name was dung. And the once mighty nation was
no more; and the once proud people were without sustenance or shelter
or hope. And the Change "The One" had given them was as like unto a
poison that had destroyed them and like a whirlwind that consumed all
that they had built.

And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish,
"give us back our nation and our pride and our hope!!" But it was too
late, and their homeland was no more!

These things are happening in our country right now. Unless we make our voices heard, and demand immediate accountability from the President and our Congress, all of these things may happen and possibly much more.
