This is from an Atlas reader, Dave in Texas, and I thought his observations too important not to share. I stand shoulder to shoulder with Dave and every man, woman and child who believes in taking a stand to save this great country and our precious freedoms. It is the individual that will restore this nation to its origins.
Here it is unedited:
I'm one of those Christian guys who is aware of the importance of Israel, not just in the sense of biblical prophecy, which I sort of take with a grain of salt because it's so deliberately vague (He doesn't want us to know TOO much, ya know? :-) but because Israel is a great moral test for the whole world. Anybody with a functioning conscience can see that. And as usual, the creepy and disgusting world is failing such a test.
Aside from the USA, Israel is the only nation I know that is founded on people accepting God and being aware of His special providence and trying to live up to Him. (as opposed to Islamic countries which claim this but their practice disproves their claim.) And as far as it goes here in the States, of course, it's just words on paper now, and some are trying to destroy the paper, even...
And I was a big fan of Johnson until he started trashing you for no good reason. He proves my thesis that a libertarian is not really someone in search of a morally better world, only a freer one. It is not possible to ignore morality or dismiss it as 'not my province' and so forth... everyone faces moral tests every day, large and small, and Johnson fails his in this Texan's judgment.
When he does his blowhard act about the Euro 'fascists', it shows only that he isn't fully aware of the importance of the Jewish 'canary in a coal mine' metaphor, or the fact that you cannot defend European democracy on its own merits because it HAS none. :-)
I'll NEVER understand how he can be so against Islamic creep yet so opposed to what seems like EVERYONE who is trying to stop it over there. He's such a big "guilt by association" guy, but I don't believe 90% of the stuff about the 'associates', because it largely comes from the MEDIA. He should know better.
I lived in Brussels for several years recently and can testify in person to the creeping... downtown is a big tourist area but now you don't go there at night. The center of Brussels is one giant Moroccan neighbourhood. Crescent and star flags hanging out of every balcony, no white people visible, that sort of thing. I'm told there are more than a hundred thousand Moroccans in a small area next to downtown. that's a tenth of the city population COUNTING THE SUBURBS.
I lived in Woluwe St. Lambert, a southeast suburb that was entirely French. Lucky for me I learned French in school... :-) but if you want to talk about racism and cultural snobbishness, just spend a few minutes talking to a native Vlamand and a native Wallonian... the antipathy between French and Dutch is about to tear that country apart.
Next time you go, take a side trip into the city for dinner, near the Grand Place.... but be sure to wear a burka.
The alternative is a car ride through those neighbourhoods in the daytime to see all the festive Islamic colors. :-)
Pamela, I'm just an ordinary Texas guy, not rich, not special, not anyone to take notice of for any reason in particular... but my eyes are open and my mind does not rest and my conscience is always looking for the true and the Godly, and let me say from this faraway city of Irving, Texas, that I see these things in you and that I cannot help but marvel at how you are... :-))
smart, principled, conscientious, visionary in many ways, and oh yes, ferociously attractive too.. ;-)
This from a happily married man who still notices these things at 48 years of age. Hope I never stop noticing!
be blessed, woman, you are encouraged every day by gazillions of people you don't even know.
UPDATE: Great comment from Amaros
