“So he's not legit. What are we supposed to do? What is the proper response?” These questions were asked of me in response to my Dems Admit Obama’s Not Eligible post. I have thought about these questions quite a bit. While thinking, two developments have happened. First, Judge Terry Lewis of Florida punted. He issued a deeply flawed ruling stating that since Mr. Barry S. B. H. Obama was “born in the United States” he is a natural born citizen. That assumption is huge since B.S.B.H.O. refuses to present creditable evidence of the simple fact of his birth. The second event is, of course, is the copout of Mr. John (Love Me Please) Roberts and the rest of the Supreme Court on the healthcare debacle. The writing is on the wall in giant spray painted graffiti in the colorful style of the deepest Chicago ghetto. The socialist and the communist have our beloved country by the throat like a coiling snake and they ain’t gonna let go ‘till she is dead. The rule of law has passed and we are now in the every man for himself mode.
Our proper response? We embrace this cross as one we deserve. We fall back upon the two greatest commandments, to love God with your whole heart, mind and being, and to love your neighbor as yourself. The future will be hard. Expect a significant and very noticeable lowering of our standard of living. Expect government goons to intrude into your private affairs with the tact and compassion of a schoolyard bully. Expect shortages, higher taxes and fees on everything (Thanks a lot Roberts!). Expect the currency to collapse and inflation to roar through our economy like a wildfire. Through it all, love God. Thank Him for this time to truly demonstrate your love of Him with patient suffering. Share in your scarcity, help others and never lose sight of the goal: To be in heaven with God. Many of us are not going to survive the coming times with our bodies but we will, by this very gift of times, survive our passage through the world. Many will not. They, who have placed their hearts on the treasures of the world, will despair. I can already hear the screams of the future when all those 401ks vaporize.
This is the time of Catholic mettle. This is the time when the shallowness of protestant theology will be exposed as insignificant. This is the time when we will guide so many back to the Barque of Peter. This is the time we were born for! Vive Christo Rey!
