This is what happens when greed and power seduce our leaders. We are no longer a nation of patriots to whom our leaders pledge "their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor." No, we are a nation of leaders who pledge to use whatever means are necessary to stay in office, get rich, and make wage slaves out of the American people. This is the consequence of a godless liberalism. We're probably too far gone to fix it, but God promises that all things work together for good to those who love Him and serve according to His purpose. So the answer? Love and serve God and never vote for a liberal or a liberal dressed in "moderate" clothing.
