A challenge for Congress to Show Respect to the Nation

30 Jan

Many of the challenges the citizens of the United States go through are due to an inability to communicate in a meaningful way with those people who should be the closest to them.  We hear many ministers speak about the natural tendencies of babies to be bad when they come into this world, but I believe instead they natural tendencies of babies is to form methods that will get them the most attention to their survival needs.  If they feel the survival needs are met without the need for excessive actions on their part they become more mellow and passive.  If they feel they have to fight for the attention, food and comfort they tend to be more aggressive in their actions. 

If you do not believe what I am writing is true just look at most any baby and begin talking to them or just look at them in a kind way and they will most of the time begin making cooing sounds or smiling and laughing.  The difference is the environment of the baby.  Normally a good environment produces a pleasant child and a harsh environment produces something in between good and evil.  However the families of those children would say not good or evil development, but easy and hard development.

If a child is raised in a loving environment the respect for the parents is strengthen and their instincts of survival are not needed as much because the parent are showing love and respect for the child.  If the love and respect is taken away their survival instincts become the main teaching source for their education. 

The wealthy and the great middle class of the 40s and 50s had more of a ‘hands on’ role in the raising of the children.  Later on the less fortunate families had to have two incomes to survive.  Many times money was such an issue simple hired adult guidance was not affordable.  This is when the latchkey child was born. 

The latchkey child was then raised then by the influences they encountered.  Either the grownup friend they will develop, the older child they will look to for guidance, or the influences around them become the teacher.  Since there is no prayer in school, the respect of a value based teacher is also not present.  The child does understand the parent should work to survive, but they miss the parental discipline, guidance, love and respect they need to grow their experience without making all the mistakes their parents made.  This absence of respect can very well lead a child to the hard survival instincts which in turn teach the child that they do not need to show others such as God, family, country, or friends respect.

We hear talk all day long every day from the radio, TV, friends, family and people just passing through our lives.  This is the normal, but how many people that are doing the talking know that half of a conversation is listening?  The child hears everything they see and read as fact.  It is easier for anyone to take the word of someone as fact than to research the subject for itself.  If the hearing is the only direct contact the child has to a subject, the tendency of the child is to accept the conclusions of others and let the information stop there.

The child at this point in its live has a relatively blank mind, few experiences, and little researched knowledge to draw from when making life decisions.  In the fifties and before, most schools began the day with a bible reading and prayer.  We children of the time didn’t understand the significance of this action and I am not sure that the teachers in general understood the significance until it was lost.

Children that entered school after that then faced a condition of working parent, a school without prayer, and basically turned to the only authority they thought they could trust.  That would be the government from local to national or drug dealers who help them get what they want.  The government demonstrates that it has no respect for its members, constituents, classes of people or people that didn’t vote or participate in any way.  The corporate body in the USA followed the governments lead and showed no respect for the government that licensed them to operate under the protection of the USA.  The drug community doesn’t have any respect for its customers other than the money the customers have to purchase their poison.

Now the children look to their parents who have been raised in this disrespectful society, the government that supports a disrespectful society, and the companies that employ their parents to get a sense of values that should be followed.

We are taught everyday by the politicians that are supposed to be leading this country out of financial chaos that if we stick to our core beliefs that eventually we will win.  This could be true if we had core beliefs that we demonstrated every day by doing good and proper things.  However this is not what happens.  The politicians do say that the citizens are important, but by their actions they clearly teach us that the average citizen of the United States has no value to them unless that citizen is producing money for the corporations that sponsored the politician.  This clearly sends the signal that money is more important than the “Ten Commandments”.  If we want to change the core belief of others we have to work on that from the bottom up.  From the top legislative positions in our country we can only create the conditions to bring about change.

The change we need is to recognize that the Supreme Court screwed up again and declared that it infringed on Christian’s rights to have prayers and Christian values taught in public schools.  It is like they never read the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.  It states the following,
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Poor Richard’s Almanac

For want of a nail, the shoe was lost;
For want of a shoe, the horse was lost;
For want of a horse, the rider was lost;
For want of a rider, the message was lost;
For want of the message, the battle was lost;
For want of a battle, the kingdom was lost,
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail

In this case the nail is our founder’s faith in God.  They didn’t want to establish that our people must worship God.  They wanted us to have a choice just as God gives us a choice of whether to worship God or not.

In the decision of the Supreme Court, the court exactly ruled against the constitution and prohibited the free exercise of worship. This is not just any worship, but the worship referred to in the Declaration of Independence which states “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator”.  It didn’t say some men.  It said all men’s Creator.  A very large and important war was fought over that principle.  The Declaration of Independence is and always will be part of the Constitution of the United States sealed by the blood of the men and women who died giving the Congress of the United States the privilege of writing such a document.

Much has been said about whether or not the signers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States were or were not Christians.  That was settled when they all signed the documents.  Whether or not the States wanted to follow the Christian values was settled when they ratified the Constitution of the United States.  All those men were not Christian, I am sure, but they did recognize that this set of values and support from a high power was necessary to grow the nation.

The Nine Justices CAN be over turned by the people.  The congress represents the people.

NOW IT IS YOUR TURN CONGRESS.  DO YOUR BEST WORK AND WE MIGHT JUST SAVE THE NATION FOR OUR GRANDCHILDREN.
IF YOU DO NOT DO THIS, NOTHING ELSE YOU WILL EVER DO MATTERS.
