Ever since they took God out of the schools and government offices we have had Moral decline!! This world turned against God and it now is paying the price. We must try to talk about Jesus to everyone we meet and let them know even know with an immoral society Jesus is there and ready to forgive and Bless our nation,

ALL THE ABOVE! Every point and then some are correct! The Bible says Children “must” respect and obey the parent, this is a sin when they rebel against the parent – period. Our social decline is our own fault because people who know things were forced by various social means to keep your mouth shut – GOD wants us to speak our Truth! when we go silent, the evil has it’s way. IT was made illegal to discipline our children, and people were trained to shut up. let the child dow as they please or we will get you (Child Protective Services) and then it became CPS, State, Local, and School policies for children to tell the teacher if they were disciplined? And we wonder why school boards are having parents arrested for speaking up in behalf of their own children at those meetings? I will tell you why!
Because evil is terrified of the truth, when evil hears truth from even just one person, they go into defense mode and use the law or counter culture methods to put the blame on the person speaking the truth.

ALWAYS SPEAK YOUR TRUTH, and the TRUTH IS the WORD OF GOD. There is no way to speak God’s Word (TRUTH) if you have even the least amount of apprehension about whether or not you are really speaking “YOUR TRUTH”.

The answer to the Poll above is “all the above”. As a nation, as a people, we have become self serving and morally bankrupt. I will vote and pray that we still have time to turn this around.

When it became obvious that it is the government AGAINST the people, instead of government by the people … that was a sign that few could overlook.
When government positions are a guarantee of getting great pay, doing little work and having amazing retirement benefits, it was a step toward tyranny.
When civil servants became dictators.
When it became clear that our government was an organization designed to take the hard earned dollars of the taxpayers and spend that money to benefit the government and clearly to the detriment of the working class.
When mobs are tearing down the statues of the people who freed the slaves, tearing down statues of those who said we had a government of the people, by the people and for the people.
When we who have been around long enough to see the reversal of the direction of government, we who have read the history books and fought in the wars see people elected to office proclaiming that they will make our country better by turning it into a new version of the Soviet Union, we know it has gone past anything reasonable. And when someone who can’t draw a crowd of more than 50 people wins an election over someone who routinely draws crowds of 30,000 people or more, we know something is seriously wrong.

We vote in November or we don’t ever vote again.. You shall know them by their works and the fruit thy bear. What fruit has Biden produced? I think Obama is behind Biden. Make people dependent on govt. Then control by threat of removing support food, fuel, medicine. How much money you make last month govt will take 52 %. Yes I am afraid . The vultures gather at the corpse of the U S A

I’m disturbed and mystified by this new trend toward gender disparity. The more serious issue is this trend toward emasculating small children with surgery which borders on Naziism. Less devasting but bordering on the ridiculous is the issue of avoiding any reference to gender. What’s wrong with referring to a woman as a “she” and a male as a “he”?

I am very optimistic about our country and do believe we can overcome our problems if turn our problems over to God,and believe he will turn things around. After all folks, who created this planet and is in total control. The answer to all our needs is to trust in our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Wake up America !! Christ is the answer. Trust and believe!!

If there was an “all the above” option I would have chosen that. The lack of faith and relationship with God has ushered in both moral depravity and dependency on government. This faith and worship of government has made socialism and collectivism more attractive because government will fill your plate if you are too lazy to do so. Social media and the media parrot the soundbites of whomever pays their salary which is dangerous regardless of who is pulling the strings. Most importantly; the people of this nation have forgotten or become impotent in following the Constitution which granted all power and authority to the governed, and are now allowing the government to be completely unaccountable for violating the Constitution and the rights of the people.

Everyone should read Sal Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”. There you will find the Socialist formula for taking down of this country. The answer to the poll question is printed in black and white. BTW, the first rule is “Control healthcare and you control the people.”

All of the causes shown above are factors. The country has no common cause. Our so-called leaders, rather than rallying everyone together are labeling everyone and driving a wedge between us. One thing I think is especially egregious is the that left enjoys impunity for their outrageous and illegal acts. That’s my biggest beef. The current January 6th hearings are “kangaroo” court. So what if all the things Trump was accused of were true? The list of wrong-doing by the left is 10 times longer. Nothing happening there!

There is much that is wrong with our country and the world these days. People are acting very differently today than when I was young. Today people are much more materialistic, seemingly focused mainly on getting “the American dream,” but if and when we get it, it is not fulfilling. Something deeper and more important is missing. God is absent and not invited into many people’s lives. We are cut off from each other, often do not even know who our neighbors are, especially in the big cities. But though this is true God is still present and wants the best for us. Our country has been through rough patches before and survived. We need to look to God, to our families and to each other, to sincerely reach out and make connections and respect and care for each other. Love is the only real weapon that we have that is also the medicine that we all need. Let us all love our neighbors as ourselves and love God, our country and our world in the best ways that we can.

I believe the descent into hell on earth is inevitable before Christ returns to earth again. It happened before and almost all life was extinguished by a great flood, but humanity has forgotten this lesson. We must all be faithful and do what we can to ensure we do not our family and friends follow the teachings of Jesus Christ

Not to be a whiner but I feel like our generation is completely missing the “fun” of retirement. I retired 4 years ago due to events beyond my control – but thought “oh well it’s okay”. I then moved across the country to an area where my money would go further. Then they locked us down and continue to scare us. Now with out of control inflation I don’t feel safe spending a few dollars and even going for a 2-3 night local trip! THIS is NOT what I worked my entire life for! When do WE get to enjoy retirement?

Decline. Consider the case of AG Garland. He missed out appointment as a Supreme Court justice due to Republican opposition, then missed out a Biden appointment for being the wrong gender and race.

Perhaps the only way Garland can get a Supreme Court appointment as a justice is to support the lawlessness of the Biden administration, including ignoring the federal law that requires protection of justices Barrett and Kavenaugh from fanatical demonstrators at their homes.

If either conservative justice is assassinated before the midterm election, Garland may get his Supreme Court appointment. After the midterm red tsunami, Garland will be shut out from the Supreme Court for the rest of his life.

We as a nation have turned our backs on God. He designed us and our world, and if we ignore Him, He will leave us to our own consequences for our actions. We all will give an account to the Lord Jesus Christ when we die. (Hebrews 9:27-28) 27 And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, 28 so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.

There are so many different things that are the cause of way our culture has become so dark but a couple of them, in my opinion are; churches generally speaking and become no different than an entertainment center. Secondly, I feel that most people by not being 100% involved in what our school boards and our local officials are doing, are totally responsible for our country moving towards socialism.

I think it is a combination. Children are not taught to respect themselves or others. No regard for anyone but themselves. I think if we don’t get back to the family unit our society is doomed. Consequences for your actions has fallen by the wayside. Too many parents coddle their children. I thought as a parent your responsibility was to raise your children to be productive self sufficient adults. Doesn’t seem to happen anymore!!! Children need to LEARN from their mistakes not have someone erase them!

Older Americans have no protections unless you are Joe Biden with Secret Service present!! Who should they turn to for help in times of need?? Cops are being defunded and disrespected throughout our Country (and those that have resigned won’t come back no matter what NYC’s mayor suggests), most young college leftists oppose opinions that don’t match their narrative and this is not your father’s Country any longer!!! SO WHAT’S THE QUESTION??

Within the past few weeks there was a massive solar storm on the surface of our sun. It was extremely violent and lasted approximately 30 minutes. Now we are experiencing a terrible heat wave. It seems to be a natural occurrence perhaps a cycle of heating up like Earth has experienced many times in the past. The plants thrive in hot humid weather and produce more oxygen just like in a greenhouse. A natural occurrence that cleans toxins out of the atmosphere.

Greed of our elected representatives resulted in a decline of individual responsibility which resulted in a worldview of dependency on government to supply our needs. It is hard to oppose Santa Clause. Redistribution of wealth has got to stop.

I really don’t think that I’m disillusioned, but I do miss what I consider – better times! Unfortunately, family is now defined by one parent, or same sex parents. Family as I grew up, Mom and Dad in the same house, is almost a thing of the past. God has also been put on the back burner. Society thinks it’s okay that women are promiscuous (multiple partners at that) but are not smart enough to use birth control (that includes married women), but perfectly acceptable to ‘murder’ the unborn. Isaiah 5:20 is perfectly stated when it comes to calling good evil and evil good. II Timothy 3:1-5 also describes where people are today. The description of these verses calls people what we are seeing everyday with politicians and people of influence. I’ve said for many years that this is an ‘I/ME society’, and it’s more so that way every day. SAD! I miss the times I grew up in (the 1950’s and 1960’s), but those days are gone and I’m sure my parents, grandparents and great-grandparents thought the same about their youth compared to the years I remember so fondly. We need to get our country back to God first, family and job in that order. My brother once said that God doesn’t give us what we want but what we deserve and maybe, none of us deserve any better than what we are getting. The liberal media and politicians ‘hate’ God and the teachings of the Bible, remember who has been denied communion in the Catholic Church recently. Also, the media personality who coached his politician brother what to say regarding sexual harassment charges. Has God taken His Blessing away from America? Something to think about.

I find that I agree with most of the views shared. I noticed that Bible prophecy of one world government and the state of affairs of our society matching what Jesus foretold about the end times is not really mentioned. Why do we think we can remove God from every aspect of our lives without removing the blessings of God. How do we think we can experience truth, justice, compassion, hope, forgiveness, just human relationships, inner personal and overall societal peace and justice when we refuse to recognize the author and substainer of it all. I believe it is impossible to reject the truths of God and not experience what we are are now encountering! Hate and revenge will never usher in compassion and justice. Lying will never bring about truth politicians. Deceptions never foster anything other than new cover ups.

All of the above! We have, as a nation, ignored politics and politicians actions. Many do not want to hear the truth. They prefer their own “safe places” rather than taking the time to read or research to find the truth. Sad, but they even resist when you offer the anything that disrupts their lives.
