My top concern for our country is the slippery slope. Too many people think that it can never happen here in America. Let's start with gun control. Do people really believe that closing the gun show loophole or universal background checks will be the end? Do you really believe that all those 70 million background checks magically disappeared? All electronic data can be retrieved. Next will be registration and total confiscation.
How about gay marriage? If legal in all 50 states, will that be the end? They have already gone after florists and bakeries. What next?
I fear that they use the full power of the government to attack any church that still preaches from the Old Testament. Amendment 1 to the Bill of Rights be damned. How about legalization of marijuana? It is just the first step. What other harmless drug is next?
The list can go on. Open borders, abortion on demand, no parental rights, printing money day and night making our currency worthless, etc.
Never miss a local story.
I fear our great nation has lost its moral compass. I may be alone.
