AMERICA'S SHIP OF STATE SEEMS DESTINED TO CRASH
By Chuck Baldwin January 29, 2010

America's Ship of State is completely rudderless and, without a
speedy course correction, seems destined to crash against the rocks of
oppression and economic ruin in the very near future. The manifestations
of America's almost-certain collision with history are everywhere.
America's Liberty Ship is dependent upon the twin mainsails of
Morality and Constitutional Government to stay on course. It is an
irrefutable and irreversible law that these twin sails are firmly linked.
We cannot have one without the other. America's founders clearly
understood this.

For example, our second President, John Adams, said, "We have no
government armed with power capable of contending with human passions
unbridled by morality and religion. Our Constitution was made only for a
moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of
any other."

Samuel Adams (called the "Father of the American Revolution") said,
"He therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of this country who
tries most to promote its virtue, and who, so far as his power and
influence extend, will not suffer a man to be chosen into any office of
power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man . . . The sum of all
is, if we would most truly enjoy this gift of Heaven, let us become a
virtuous people."

Our first President, George Washington (called the "Father of his
Country"), said, "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to
political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports.
To quote Patrick Henry, "Bad men cannot make good citizens . . . A
faulty state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible
with freedom."

Morality demands honesty and equity in judgment. Morality is
selfless. Morality is humble. Morality is jealous over truth and
justice.

But compare basic morality to the modus operandi of today's
governments, businesses, and churches. Instead of truth and moral
principles, we find people who are almost totally absorbed by a culture
of deceit, selfishness, ambition, and greed. Rightly does the Scripture
say, "The love of money is the root of all evil." (I Timothy 6:10) Of
more than one church or nonprofit ministry leader could it be said, "He
doesn't let his Christianity get in the way of his business." Ditto for
many so-called Christian businessmen and politicians.

As a result of this total breakdown of basic morality in virtually
every distinguished element within the American framework, constitutional
governance is also virtually nonexistent. Adams was right: "Our
Constitution was made only for a moral people. It is wholly inadequate
to the government of any other."

America's political officeholders routinely ignore their oaths to
preserve, protect, and defend the US Constitution. Routinely! Many have
never read the Constitution, or if they have, they desire neither to
understand nor to obey it. And even worse is the fact that most
Americans (including America's spiritual leaders) seem totally unbothered
by it all. As long as their favorite politician, political party, or
personal cause benefits, they could not care less whether the
Constitution is followed or not. More than 50 years of moral relativism
has now reached almost total and complete social saturation.

And this is the bottom line: because We the People have lost our
morality and fidelity to constitutional government, we have countless
conscienceless criminals located at virtually every level in and out of
the federal government (political party notwithstanding) that are up to
their necks in total and absolute EVIL! After all, where do all these
politicians, bureaucrats, blood-merchants, and mercenaries come from, if
not from within our own social and religious establishments?

Until we wake up to the fact that our country, our Constitution, our
liberties, and our future are up against evil -- PURE, UNADULTERATED
EVIL -- we are never going to be able to muster the dedication and
resolve required to turn this Ship of State around. Until we get our
heads out of the sand and start seeing things as they are (and not as the
national news media wants us to see them), until we are willing to stop
indulging in the illusions of hope, and until we stop shutting our eyes
against a painful truth, it will not matter to a tinker's dam who we
elect or which party is in power.

Setting our Ship of State aright starts with We the People returning
to the basic, moral laws of right and wrong. Whether it is business,
religion, or politics, right is right and wrong is wrong! It means to
stop covering for evildoers, whether that person belongs to our own
political party or even
our own family. It means to stop living for personal gain and
advancement. It means being honest and demanding honesty in others. It
means elevating truth to a position above expediency. It means
acknowledging that there is a Supreme Authority to which all men must
submit -- and I'm not referring to the U.S. Supreme Court.

America's Ship of State is currently rudderless. And as long as we
are expecting someone in Washington, D.C., to fix the problem, we will
continue to be lost -- adrift in a sea of evil and criminality. To get
America's Ship of State back on course, you and I must get back on
course. And it starts by being willing to OPEN OUR EYES TO PAINFUL
TRUTH.

I think the biggest problem the US faces is corrupt judges and their bankster friends:
