Our country is troubled


Since when is killing your child in the womb an essential part of health care?

Since when does speaking up against the government become “un-American”? Since when does the government say abortion should be rare, and then exports money to foreign governments for abortion? Since when does a pro-life stance result in an arrest and then jail time?

Since when does a member of Congress have his or her own retirement package and the people have less? Since when does the money flow freely, and what will happen when it runs out?

Since when does speaking and praying to God result in lawsuits? Since when does being silent result in good teaching?


Is this country in trouble? I believe so.
