Sunday night – April 2, 2023 – Mark Levin dedicated his show to exposing the doings and goals of the Democrat party. In essence, he said the Democrats are out to destroy Donald Trump, the Republican Party, and our nation. I will add their agenda plays out more or less in that order. He is not wrong but he is not entirely correct either.
Levin is a very smart, sharp individual. He is well-spoken and passionate about liberty and our nation. He is one of the few commentators I still watch on a regular basis. For all that his perspective is far to narrow for my tastes. He correctly sees the rampage the Democrat party has gone on. He correctly understands to some degree the uniparty concept. I’m sure I am understating his understanding but in all fairness, he tends to understate destructive nature of the two-party system. Instead he seems to put too much hope in the Republican Party. Beyond that, Levin fails to see, or at least add the spiritual perspective of all this. Regular readers (IF I have any at all) might argue I spend far too much energy on the spiritual perspective.
Coming to my own defense, I do not think it is possible to focus too much on the spiritual aspects as long as I’m not seeing “spirits” everywhere. Spiritual influence? Yes. Spirits? No. What’s the difference? I suppose the easiest way to show what I’m talking about is to issue a challenge. Show me one aspect of humanity untouched by the adversary, the devil. I thought so. And that is exactly why I see the spiritual aspect of our world as too important to ignore. For too long we humans have tried to “go it alone” without God. It’s time to drop all pretense and run to God Almighty. Without God, we are doomed. The good news is, God is not going anywhere. Whether we believe in Him, accept Him, turn to Him or not – He WILL have His way. I’ll come back around to this in a bit.
Per Mark Levin and his Democrat diatribe, again, he’s not wrong. What he is failing to point out is what I see as the elephant in the room – the Republicans are not going to save us. Why? Simply because both parties have the same goal: acquiring power. There is only one practical way to gain power and that is by growing government. Levin’s sole aim is to restore power to the Republican party. I can tell you this much with the utmost confidence – they will never dismantle our government to any significant degree. Chances are, even if they had the will, they could never succeed. I can demonstrate my point in a single phrase: Social Security.
Love it or hate it, Social Security is not going anywhere. Ever. Bluntly put, I hate it. I always have. If I could I would pull the plug on it today, even if it meant giving up my own stake in it. Even I understand it would be simply wrong to stop payments to the millions of citizens who depend on SS for some or all of their living, so “pulling the plug” would entail certain concessions to ensure no one would be left destitute. Such is my point. At its black heart, Social Security was and is inherently evil. It forces citizens to become dependent on the government teat. Worse yet, it penalizes certain seniors who “make too much money” after they start drawing their benefits. This is not the only program our nation is stuck with but proves my point. The nation would be in an uproar if certain ingrained institutions are disrupted no matter how cancerous they are to us citizens. Cancerous? Social Security? Seriously?
Yes, it is cancerous and you know this. As a nation, our population is growing older and we are living longer, but not without health issues. So between Social Security and Medicare, the bills for these programs keep mounting. Add to that – or subtract from it rather – the idiocy of the politicians who keep raiding the funds collected from taxpayers to keep the system afloat. The greedy bastards cannot keep their grimy hands off the so-called trust fund set up to perpetuate the system. So now the money to pay Social Security obligations has to come from those currently working. If FICA taxes aren’t enough well, guess where the money will come from? That’s right, other taxes. And don’t think for a moment our illustrious politicians would even THINK of cutting any budgets. No. They’ll just borrow more money and/or raise taxes to cover any shortages. Cancer. Money-eating cancer.
Mark’s mistake then is he only addresses part of the problem and a small part at that. What?! The globalists via the Democrat Party usurping enough power to take over our nation is only a small part of the problem? You heard right. Fact is, if it wasn’t the Democrats, it would be the Republicans. Such is the nature of a two-party system. One party is always evil. Which one? Why, the party in power of course.
Trump’s presidency shed further light on the cockroaches in Washington. They scattered and then sniped the presidential agenda from safe havens. While Trump was able to get more done than anyone would imagine, he was hindered every step of they way be a majority consisting of both parties. Exhibit #1 – The Affordable Healthcare Act aka “Obamacare”. This wildly unpopular legislation should have been repealed outright as Trump promised to do. Instead he was forced to simply modify it even though he has a “majority” in both parties. Once he was outed from office for certain, many of his “allies” turned against him.
Again, Congress and the two-party system are merely symptoms of the larger, looming issue – the ungodliness of our nation. The politics of our nation is a reflection of the morality and ethics of our citizens. As a nation we look away from outright corruption everywhere. The corruption is so bad it no longer lurks in dark corners with the cockroaches. No, the emboldened deviants now stand tall, defying us to challenge them. How else can the Bidens walk freely among us, heads held high, instead of hiding in shame? They simply ignore the allegations and the evidence presented knowing full well they will not be charged. What about sexually aberrant politicians who dare run for re-election after being convicted of crimes and winning?
How can former President Trump be facing no less than 34 felony allegations – ostensibly leaked by a District Attorney, in and of itself a felony – of “crimes” other prosecutors passed on? Said allegations center around some so-called “hush money” supposedly paid to silence Stormy Daniels. While the entire affair is sordid itself, the question begged is why, then, did Congress establish a slush fund with taxpayer dollars to do likewise? In fact, our political system is rife with hush payments.
Face facts: our political system is rotten to the core because as a nation we, citizens, are rotten to the core. We’ve turned away from God and now we are facing the consequences. It is often said a people get the government they deserve. God help us.
Take a page from the Book of Jonah.
Jonah 1:1 Now the word of Yahweh came to Jonah the son of Amittai, saying,
2 “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and preach against it, for their wickedness has come up before me.” (WEB)
The citizens of Nineveh were not of the twelve tribes of Israel. They were not God’s chosen people. And yet, God went to great lengths to tell them to repent of their wickedness. They listened and they did repent.
Jonah 3:10 God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way. God repented of the evil which he said he would do to them, and he didn’t do it. (WEB)
As Christians, we stand as sons of God. Thus, while our nation seems to crumble before our eyes, we should be looking to God. He may or may not revive and restore our nation but He will never leave us nor forsake us. We can take comfort in that promise. Meanwhile, we fight the spiritual battle.
Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of his might.
11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, and against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
13 Therefore, put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having the utility belt of truth buckled around your waist, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
15 and having fitted your feet with the preparation of the Gospel of peace;
16 above all, taking up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the evil one.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;
18 with all prayer and requests, praying at all times in the Spirit, and being watchful to this end in all perseverance and requests for all the saints: (WEB)
May our Heavenly Father bless you and keep you in the precious name of our Lord Christ Jesus.
