Every Thanksgiving Americans rightfully take account of their blessings and thank God. Following a sort of hierarchy, we are thankful for our jobs and prosperity, for our health, for our loved ones, and for our freedom to pursue whatever version of happiness we like. Though created free by God, throughout history all manner of tyrants and kings have sought to deny that freedom. However, Americans have been able to peacefully exercise our freedom because we live in the United States of America, so we are eternally grateful to our founders for enshrining in our Constitution our God given rights to liberty.
Americans are also thankful for the thousands of men and women the past two plus centuries that have fought and died to preserve and protect our freedom. That’s why this Thanksgiving is somewhat hollow and particularly disheartening to know we are watching our freedom slip away on our watch. Some may say that’s an extreme view and it’s nowhere near that bad.
Folks, like frogs in a pot the heat has been increasing for decades and we are just now realizing we are at full boil. There have been steady encroachments on the First Amendment for years, but now it hangs by a thread. Conservatives have been shadow banned and suppressed for years to give the impression they are a tiny minority, but this year we have come to where conservatives are outright banned, censored, and even beaten for their thoughts. There is an all-out assault on freedom of assembly particularly churches; leftists are demanding Christians accept the LGBTQ agenda or be charged with hate speech. Big Tech and the media will tell us what is dangerous or peaceful and certainly exactly what is the correct opinion; all others will be fact-checked and at least labeled false or perhaps banished.
If the Democrat media complex succeeds in stealing the election and seizing executive and legislative power, the Second Amendment will surely have an expiration date. They have been telling us they are coming for our guns and there is no reason to doubt them. Without the Second Amendment, there is no hope of regaining the First. We can vote our way into socialism, but we would have to shoot our way out. Leftists know this and will try to deprive us the chance.
The massive obvious fraud in this presidential election is overwhelming! There was widespread ballot harvesting of illegal and ineligible voters, tons of manufactured ballots injected in the dead of night, and voting systems across the country rigged to change votes. With hundreds of affidavits, eye witnesses, whistle blowers, hard evidence, and even video, the press nonchalantly yawns that they see nothing. And worse yet, it seems elected Republicans have run up under the barn to wait out the battle.
This all goes well beyond President Trump. He certainly won in a landslide and earned a second term, but if this election steal stands, there will NEVER be another fair and free election. The Democrats and Big Tech will learn from their mistakes and will cheat even better and bigger next time. There will be no reason to vote anymore because your voice will not matter. Our ruling elite and Big Tech moguls will be the only voices that matter; they will choose for all because they are certain they know better.
However, upon this foreboding Thanksgiving we do have some important things to be thankful for. We should be so thankful for President Donald Trump because he is about the only elected official we can be confident is fighting for every average American and our freedom. We can be eternally thankful for our founders for providing the framework to preserve freedom. And we should be thankful to the Lord Almighty for creating this great nation and giving us the opportunities, but most of all we should be thankful God is in control.
With peaked anxiety across the land, Americans can only wonder are we on the road to Babylon or are the walls of Jericho about to come tumbling down? Make no mistake; tremendous evil forces are at work to dismantle our Republic, so we must pray that good men and women will stand tall, that justice will be done, and that evil will be resoundingly defeated. Remember, if we want God to be with us, we must be with Him!
“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.” Colossians 3:15
