Professor Louis Michael Seidman wrote an op-ed in the New York Times stating that we should give up the Constitution. What he writes, Obama intends.There is a community of opinion amongst modern progressives. They are both fractured souls who believe that discontinuity is superior to tradition. They want to create the world anew every day, as if free-floating values are superior to the ballast of the past. Their ideas of a brave new world without precedent represent the cowardice of minds that can't integrate various traditions and values because they are interested more in short-term hedonism than in long-term sustainability.The Constitution and modern ideas are like a marriage. Modern ideas without marriage are like cuckolding a spouse; there is no loyalty, no depth, no consistency. On the other hand, the Constitution without modern ideas is like the impotency of old age. We need a relationship between the past and the present. Progressive secularists respect only the present and lose the footing of the past. Thinking only of progress leads to the regress of uprooted values. Failure is the distinction of uprooting an apple tree, killing its roots, and yet still trying to grow apples.Without a constitution, we open ourselves up to dictatorship. Our president can do whatever he wants, not being grounded by the past. When the German economy fell apart, economic chaos led to a strongman -- Hitler. Obama prances around as a bully. He is a dangerous weakling.You'd have to be a fool to live in the present while disregarding the meanings of yesterday. You'd be subject to the whims of unhinged ideas. The president could execute his enemies at will and enslave whomever he wanted. We need both a constitution and respect for it. Tradition is our best insurance against the atheistic killings of Hitler, Stalin, and Mao. Religion is the fantastic antidote to valueless murder.Obama pretends that he is a modern man who is looking to give us our fair share, but he is a wannabe tyrant looking to uncheck his own ideas without balance and to parcel out our determined share according to his will. Fools believe that Obama is a kind man who wants to expand our rights and lives. He is closer to a dictator who wants to ordain our lives according to his whim.Obama doesn't care about the Constitution because he doesn't care about us. Our groupies love him like a rock star while he beats us over the head with his guitar and chokes us in the strings of his thoughtless progressivism. Saying "progress" doesn't make it is so. In fact, most of Obama's rhetoric doesn't make it so. Obama promises us placebos, but we receive negative referendums and failed fiscal and moral policies.
I was teaching my students about the constituton , and it occured to me that its greatest strength will become I feel its greatest weakness..and that is the first 3 words " we the people".. The idea that the people have power, that power in government rests with the people.. This idea was great when people had an idea of right and wrong..but as the culture changes and ideas change and go further from the light of scripture and the testimony of nature, our laws will begin to change for the worse, because are constition is based on the consent of the Govern.. and we will under the tyranny of the 51% So what can we do as Christians living in a crossroads, 1. Be a light in a wicked and perverse generation----confronting culture----giving a reason for our faith 2. rest in our Lord who is unchanging 3, be ready for persecution loveandy

Amen! Good points! I'd like to add another one:4. Get prepared to move to another country if God permits.A large organization called International living http://internationalliving.com/ has been helping people find better places to live since 1979. USA was once the greatest place on earth to live, but if there is no revival here soon, it will become one of the worst places on earth to live.God always has many to go through persecution and death, but He also allows many to escape to places where they have a little more freedom for a few more years to keep sending His Word to the rest of the world that has never heard. While many are rejecting the gospel here, this site can tell you of MANY entire large people groups who have never heard: http://www.joshuaproject.net/ While in many cases, there is persecution in those places, it is from people who have never heard ... unlike the persecution that will come from the USA where they have heard and have rejected. The heathens were much more merciful to the early church than the scribes and Pharisees who KNEW but were rejecting.
good point.. I'm not a prophet or the son of a prophet, but i feel this country in the next 20 years will be dramaticly diffrent.. Right now we are in the position of Abraham.. praying for our country.. but I am afraid soon we will be in the position Lot.. getting ready to leave, if able.. God would you turn peoples hearts to your gospelandy
