The comment that says it all...

While reading an article about the firing of the Inpector General I came across the below comment that sums it up pretty damn good on who I've been feeling lately :

Economic justice: * America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized. * Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims. * They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government. * Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer. * The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about. * They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries. Hollywood cliches: * Without capitalism there'd be no Hollywood - yet filmmakers hate capitalism. * Filmmakers hate capitalism - yet they sue for unauthorized copying of their movies. * They sue for unauthorized copying - yet on screen they teach us to share. * On screen they teach us to share - yet they keep their millions to themselves. * They keep their millions to themselves - yet they revel in stories of American misery and depravity. * They revel in stories of American misery and depravity - yet they blame the resulting anti-American sentiment on conservatism. * They blame the anti-American sentiment on conservatism - yet conservatism ensures the continuation of a system that makes Hollywood possible.

Forget, please, "conservatism." It has been, operationally, de facto, Godless and therefore irrelevant. Secular conservatism will not defeat secular liberalism because to God both are two atheistic peas-in-a-pod and thus predestined to failure. As Stonewall Jackson's Chief of Staff R.L. Dabney said of such a humanistic belief more than 100 years ago:

"[Secular conservatism] is a party which never conserves anything. Its history has been that it demurs to each aggression of the progressive party, and aims to save its credit by a respectable amount of growling, but always acquiesces at last in the innovation. What was the resisted novelty of yesterday is today .one of the accepted principles of conservatism; it is now conservative only in affecting to resist the next innovation, which will tomorrow be forced upon its timidity and will be succeeded by some third revolution; to be denounced and then adopted in its turn. American conservatism is merely the shadow that follows Radicalism as it moves forward towards perdition. It remains behind it, but never retards it, and always advances near its leader. This pretended salt bath utterly lost its savor: wherewith shall it be salted? Its impotency is not hard, indeed, to explain. It is worthless because it is the conservatism of expediency only, and not of sturdy principle. It intends to risk nothing serious for the sake of the truth."

Our country is collapsing because we have turned our back on God (Psalm 9:17) and refused to kiss His Son (Psalm 2).

PS – And “Mr. Worldly Wiseman” Rush Limbaugh never made a bigger ass of himself than at CPAC where he told that blasphemous “joke” about himself and God.
