What we're doing isn't working!

As is typical of him, Dr. Sowell has hit the nail squarely on the head. We'd be far better off if either he or Dr. Walter Williams were elected as our first Black president.

Why would any one listen to racist opportunists like Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpto when we have a genius with incredible common sense like Dr. Thomas Sowell?

Much of the nation's problems and those of the world's, can be resolved or mitigated by returning to absolute truth (time-tested truth as taught in the Scriptures).

We, as a society, have pushed aside the Word of God in favor of "relative truth" -- what's true for you isn't necessarily true for the other guy. Everyone is making up their own rules as to what is right and wrong. This movement serves to assuage the feelings of guilt of those who refuse to comply with God's absolute truth.
‎For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (Bible, 2 Timothy 4:3, 4)
Many of us also suppress their natural God-given sense of right and wrong through alcohol and drugs (recreational and prescribed), psychological "therapy", and association with others who will tolerate, support, or reinforce their divergence from absolute truth.

We have pushed Mom out of the home and into the workplace while dumping our children off at day-care centers where our children call someone else "Mom." When the kids are home, they spend countless hours with electronic babysitters: TV and video games.

Through taxpayer-funded subsidies, we encourage fatherless families. Far too often, not only does a child not know his father, Mom isn't sure who the father is! Divorce is an expected and seemingly natural part of our enlightened disposable society.

We have shoved God out of the public square and out of our schools. Our children are fed anti-God scientific theory as if it were proven absolute truth. Any teachings remotely resembling anything one might hear in church is forbidden. School children who wear clothing emblazoned with a US flag or a verse fro the Bible is routinely ejected from class. Teachers get fired for simply having a Bible on their desks.

Few graduates of our government schools have read classic literature. Instead, their teachers assign semi-pornographic and anti-morality readings. When churches stand up against such government-recognition/imposition of immorality, they are condemned, picketed, and vandalized.

Christian military chaplains are forbidden the use of the name Jesus!

We kill millions of un-born children every year -- mostly for convenience. Then we wonder why our surviving children grow up to disrespect the life of others.

We perpetually elect and reelect politicians who legalize and even subsidize (with our neighbor's money) all the above relative truth. Then, we call for term limits -- on the other guy's elected representatives who seek a return to absolute truth.

After all of this, we are shocked that all of this rejection of God-given truth results in tragedies such as mass shootings in malls, businesses, schools, churches, theaters, and even military bases. We refuse to blame our personal and societal rejection of God. Instead, we blame an inanimate object or we claim that we don't yet have enough laws or a government that is powerful enough.

Can anyone see that none of this is working for society?
[N]either the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt. — Samuel Adams (essay in The Public Advertiser, Circa 1749)
This is why we desperately need smarter voters – voters with a moral compass. We need to repent! We must turn away from big government, narcissism, and secularism and return to God and to the traditional family.
