Give me liberty or give me...

Thinking bout the "Fairness Doctrine", the thot occurs to me, that true fairness would decry that NPR and PBS must relinquish all dependence upon taxpayer money to remain in existence.

You know, it only seems fair to me that none of the other radio or tv stations have IV's connected that drain public funding from con-gress.

In Darwinian terms, only the fittest survive; which I understand to mean that those who can do, and those who cannot die out.

That would be a right-on description of the historical United States of America. If you build a better mousetrap the people will beat a path to your doorway.

To my military mind, we are rapidly becoming the Union of Socialist States of Amerika. What's the difference? Instead of survival of the fittest, we now shoot the fittest in order to keep those on life support going.

Ever hear the idea: From each according to his ability to each according to his need?

Ha, ha, reminds me of another cliche: The straw that broke the camel's back.

I am concerned that we have come to the point that the people of this great nation, consider peace to be a high priority.

Carl F. H. Henry in his tome, The Christian Mindset in a Secular Society, states: "The prime political issue of this century is liberty. Liberty under God to be sure, but liberty nonetheless. The prophets of freedom are dwindling. that is why we hear much more about peace than about liberty and moral responsibility to deter predator powers. Man's lack of commitment to God means his inevitable spiritual enslavement to the world, while the loss of political freedom goes hand in glove with involuntary political bondage" {Multnomah Press, Portland, OR, 1984, pg 10}.

Involuntary political this mean the big spendorama being bantered about in the con-gress, the freeing of terrorists, the resurgence of the fairness doctrine?

Unfortunately, the majority of people who came to this country initially were concerned with being in a place where they could worship God, and be the people of God. How have we come to the place where we no longer look to God for direction, but instead look to man?

Be assured, your sins will find you out. Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to relive it.

Sorry, Scotty, it b too late to beam me up now.

May the grace of God be upon us, and may the Holy Spirit bring us back to our senses before this great nation is piled upon the ash heap of failed nations.
