"Over against all that reason suggests or would measure and fathom, yes, all that our senses feel and perceive, we must learn to cling to the Word and simply judge according to it."

I wish most importantly to state a case for Christ and His Cross for the unbeliever, but I also wish to make the case for both the unbeliever and the "blessedly inconsistent" towards the true apostolic and catholic teachings of the blessed and orthodox Lutheran Church.

(Cheer up, it's not that bad!)
I originally found this article by chance. It perfectly describes my generation, and why Americas future is bleak to say the least. I'll let the article speak for itself (just keep in mind this was written in 2007, before all this economic mess came along).

Do Americans care if America ends?

It's an interesting question, and one that I was asked today. I have pondered the question for years, and have come to the conclusion that those born after the mid to late 1960's are not patriotic citizens by the same definition as those born prior to the 60's. In fact, I've heard many 20, 30, and even 40-somethings claim that they held no particular allegiance to the United States, as they consider their country to be Imperialistic, dishonest, exploitative, and devious.

But we older citizens must realize that the younger generations have not had the benefit of time, wisdom, and many have not had the experience of warfare and soldiering. Nor have they had the benefit of an educational system that taught "Republic" vs. "Democracy." They believe their country to be a democracy, and at the same time, know very well that it is not. They have also been raised on a steady dose of unscrupulous and lying governance, and this they know, as well.

Younger generations are not enamored with Capitalism, politics, democracy, or faith. Today's younger generations are largely atheistic and disgusted with leadership, religion, and their lies. Sometimes we tend to think they are simply disinterested and apathetic, but the fact is, they are all too savvy when it comes to the sick joke of aristocratic governance.

The older generations, the ones who spearheaded the globalist protest movement, are also disappointed people. We were betrayed by the ones we elected — betrayed. It's a bitter pill to swallow, because much like our younger countrymen, we did not act responsibly with our freedoms. We took them for granted, and then became enamored of televised entities, which turned out to be liars, thieves, cheaters, and conquerors. We also raised and supported the fully corrupt 2-Party system.

We, the older generations, and the largest voting body in America, elected and re-elected the men and women who, year by year, Executive Order after Executive Order, Act by Act, disassembled the united States of America and the American Constitution. And now, the younger generations think of us as ignorant, manipulated, and corrupted fools. Truth hurts, doesn't it?

The Greatest Generation and the Baby Boomers have a heavy burden to bear, because it was under our watch that the deceivers smiled and grinned their way into full-blown destruction mode. We elected the Socialist globalists into our nation's most powerful positions, or to put it more honestly and plainly, we elected the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations over and over and over again, to our economic and historic demise.

Equally, and in many ways, the Greatest Gen and the Boomers sold their souls for appearances, credit, retirement, and in imitation of the elite. It's a sad state of affairs, a bitter story, and a guilt that is undeniable. But, forward we must go, and we need our youth to help us, though they have every substantial reason not to trust our intellects, our politics, or our decisions. After all, we dumped this terrible mess on their shoulders and told them they were living the good life. Now they are paying the price for our ignorance with their lives in foreign nations. America did not start corroding 5 years ago. It's been corroding for nearly 100 years, and that places the blame and the burden on us. We were supposed to prize, cherish, and protect our freedom. We were supposed to take care of our nation. Instead, we stood 100% behind her destroyers. Many of us still do.

Many younger Americans believe America needs to change — completely and permanently. Hence, the Socialists, who were always around our corners, simply walked in and set up shop — as in the entire American public school system and the "environmental," land-stealing, land trust movement. And many of the mid to upper-middle class Americans, particularly those who instantly fell for the "eco-friendly" and policed communities, are so financially polluted that they can think of nothing but their dire straits, their pathological youth sports addictions, and their pretend country clubs and day-spas. In my book, these people are out to lunch, vacant, and unreachable. Equally, they live in America's forthcoming wasteland (and I do mean forthcoming).

Again, I say to the Greatest Generation and the Boomers, we have an impossible task before us — the United Nations, the World Bank, the World Trade Organization, Agenda 21 and sustainability, the global land trust scams, corporate and financial dictatorship, a fully ignorant and gullible American population, and so very many global enemies — of which, now, we know why. What are the chances to regain our Republic and our Constitution, while we face "internationalized" policing forces, super viruses, and breaking news pandemics? Slim chances...but try, we must. America was slaughtered under our watch. She was.

So, the original question — do American people care if America ends? Today, I'd say the answer is 50/50 at best, but that may be another stupid assumption on this gray-haired lady's part. God knows I've made more foolish political assumptions than this, but to my countrymen of all ages, let us disappoint them, for they have always counted on our ignorance, our apathy, our cultural addictions, and their media. We must disappoint them. We have no choice. And to our younger American generations, please accept our sincerest apologies. We were wrong — albeit manipulated — and incredibly stupid. Please, don't follow suit.
