Honest to God, I haven't believed in the existence of Satan for more than 30 years...since I came to the conclusion that Satan is no more than something organized religions held over our heads to get us to fall in line.
While I do believe in God I have for years believed that hell was no more than a state of existence in the afterlife where one has all the hurts one has inflicted in his life, come back to him in spades. Where some form of true karma exists and one must pay the price for inflicting hurt and pain.
I am now beginning to change my mind about that Satan guy...I'm starting to believe that he does indeed exist. I am beginning to come to the realization that simple human weakness cannot justify what is happening today.
I was thinking this morning that a Satan or some animate and devious force exists that is capable of creating mass chaos. Why? Because people are so incredibly stupid these days! Let's take my favorite target; liberals. How in the world would clear thinking people believe that tens of millions of illegal invaders would be a good thing? Have they not seen the national debt? Do they not see our already bleeding and bankrupt social service programs? Do they really want to battle again such diseases as polio and whooping cough and leprosy? Why would clear thinking Americans sacrifice their own children's education by burdening the school system with illegal Mexican kids?..where funds that would normally go toward improving education, go instead to English as a second language classes, where classwork comes to a screeching halt because half of the kids can't speak English? Why would liberals embrace, or at least tolerate the massive Black urban crime in every major city in America? And, again, why would you want to double down with tens of thousands of Latino gangs that rule huge swaths of urban America today?
Folks, this wasn't what Democrats were like thirty years ago! While I never agreed with liberal Democrats, at least they knew how to think! They knew what was right and wrong...at least the basics!
So is there a Satan? Is there some supernatural force eating the brain cells of more than half of Americans? I'm serious! When I sit down and think about it I can find no rational explanation!
Yes, we can play with theories all we like. We can blame part of our decline on liberal indoctrination in our grade schools and colleges. We can cite the deterioration of the nuclear family. We can put some of the blame on our ever increasing trend toward hedonism and the worship of material things.
But the problem with those theories is that they don't hold up! Every hour of every day we see proof that liberalism is a massive fail! And yet liberals cling to their beliefs as if it were the greatest religion ever espoused by man! Do you ever go on political message boards and read what these liberals are saying? They really believe that Obama is the greatest thing since slice bread! Just this morning I read an article about what Millennials believe. They are a very unhappy bunch! A staggering 43 percent of Millennials are either not working in their field of study and are working part time menial jobs and living at home with their parents! And yet nearly half of those Millennials believe capitalism is inferior to Obama's socialism! Now tell me Satan's not involved here, folks!
No one is regularly that stupid!
And please tell me, in the absence of Satan, what drug is putting a big swath of America in this lackadaisical stupor that allows a massively corrupt federal government to exist? How can America tolerate a nation that forces them to live in crime ridden communities, who standby while their local school system turns out their illiterate kids, who willingly go out and work two jobs because the government is so inept at managing the economy? Where big corporations export jobs overseas and reap huge societal benefits while gouging the consumer.
This Satan thing is somewhat new to me. I'd love to kick it around with about 60 of you. I wish we could all sit around a big table and hug a big mug of coffee and reason all of this out. Frankly, my head is dizzy with how fast our nation is unwinding. It scares the hell of me...a hell where I never dreamed might have Satan as resident manager!
