THE MIRACLE OF AMERICA

John Newby
Submitted by Albert Burns
Aug. 16, 2005

I find it truly amazing or a 'miracle' that after thousands of years of various government experiments down through time, America proved to be the first government experiment based on individual freedoms that worked. When one asks anyone from around the world, what they most desire? Their answers will be the same regardless of race, sex and so forth. First, the desire for freedom - both personally and nationally. Second, the longing for prosperity - both personally and nationally. And lastly, to remain in peace without war.

So successful was this miracle called America, that at one point, one in four Englishman lived in America. People flocked to it's shores to live in freedom and peace. And while there were and are many injustices brought on by the evil designs of man, America flourished despite those with evil designs. Despite evil, enough people with high moral values along with an understanding of freedom allowed this country to thrive in an otherwise dark and lonely world.

An interesting observation pointed out by Cleon Skousen shows that we have experienced six great revolutions in our countries brief life span. We had the 'Industrial Revolution' followed by the 'Machine Revolution,' followed by the Transportation Revolution,' followed by the Communications Revolution,' followed by the 'Energy Resource Rrevolution' and lastly the Computer Revolution.'

As he furthers points out, all six of these revolutions can only thrive in a climate of freedom. Without exception, every Nation that loses it's freedoms will also back-pedal in these vital areas. Freedom is the key to prosperity and happiness, nothing else matters and nothing else will bring ultimate happiness.

Did our founding fathers arrive at this formula by happen-chance? I think not! Let me quote James Madison, ""It was impossible to consider the degree of concord which ultimately prevailed as less than a miracle."

Over the years, our American heritage has been subject to far to many experimental explorations into non-constitutional detours. This doesn't bode well for our children. Freedom is the foundation of prosperity, so whether one be a Christian or not, freedom is at stake when we venture from our constitutional foundation. The founding fathers built a ship that will weather any storms, but only if the ship stays within the waters it was meant to sail.

So when evaluating our leaders, ask the hard questions deep in your heart, are these people strictly following the ONLY true path to freedom? Or, are they compromising their beliefs for an instant pot of soup (votes) which will lead to failure, destruction and lost freedoms. If one is honest with themselves, they will realize that less than 2% to 3% of our National elected officials pass this test. The rest trade their birthright for power, pleasure and money.

The war between good (freedoms) and evil (bondage) is being waged not only on our front porch, but within our house. As the movie line goes, "the call is coming from within the house." If you truly value your way of life, you might want to pick-up the phone and warn your family, friends and neighbors of the coming struggle that will shortly engulf each of us in more ways than one.
