The following quote has appeared in numerous places on the internet. I was unable to trace a source for the statement, but it sure gets to the point of what is really wrong with our country.
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."
An ungodly profligate by the name of Bill Clinton was elected not once but twice. We came extremely close to electing one of the filthiest mouthed politicians in existence, who thinks that he invented the internet and that the warming of the earth is caused by man, to this office. BHO was elected, not once but twice, by a majority of voters. How could the voting public in America believe that these men could have or should be leaders of the free world? It can only be that the vast majority of voters in our country can no longer distinguish between good and evil.
Hebrews 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
The reason that America can no longer distinguish between good and evil is because we as a people and as a nation have officially said NO to God. In 1962 the Supreme Court of the United States officially declared that it was against the US Constitution to pray in schools. Within just a few years, the Bible was rejected by the SCOTUS. Just a short time later the Ten Commandments were declared to be a threat to school children and were ordered to be removed from the schools of America. When a person or a nation rejects God, He rejects them, and then they no longer have wisdom. Indeed, God's word is correct when it says, "The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God..." Those who reject God will experience the judgment of God.
The writer of the above quoted article used the expression, "a vast confederacy of fools." What just exactly does this mean? Mr. Webster defines the word, confederacy as,
"A league, or covenant; a contract between two or more persons, bodies of men or states, combined in support of each other, in some act or enterprise; mutual engagement; federal compact.
The friendships of the world are oft confederacies in vice. A confederacy of princes to check innovation."
Note that one aspect of this definition is that there is a league, or covenant or a contract between two or more persons. In the case of recent elections there were over 60 million people all across the United States who as a "vast confederacy of fools" may have plunged this nation into its death throes. No matter the results of future elections in our country, it is a matter of conjecture as whether we will be able to survive the demonic legislation which has been and will be enacted to drown our beloved country in socialism and despotism. The legacies of Presidents Carter and Clinton still haunt us today. I personally do not see that it is the will of the people of America to re-embrace the God of the Bible, Jesus Christ the Lord. Yet, history and the word of God are clear, the individual and the nation that rejects God are doomed. Isaiah 60:12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted. I pray that I am wrong, but the word of God is very clear, and it is absolutely reliable and trustworthy.
Note that Mr. Webster included in his definition this comment, "The friendships of the world are oft confederacies in vice. A confederacy of princes to check innovation."
Evangelist Sammy Poole wrote these words,I'm a big boy now.by Sammy Poole - November 17, 2001
What a tangled web we wove,
When from our land the Lord we drove;
As our world around us begins to fall,
Folk asked, "Where God was through it all?"
His answer came with pained chagrin,
'You told me to 'leave' ~ Not 'to come in;'
That you were 'big enough to handle your care,
You had no need for Me ~ and prayer.'
I took you at your word, you see,
You were 'big now, and 'didn't need me;'
I stood there watching the 'big boy' fall,
Waiting, once more, for you to call.
And in spite of all your pride and sin,
I'm ever-present ~ as I have always been;
So, humble yourself beneath my hand;
I will hear from heaven, and heal your land.
Remember this time, with all its woes,
And learn the 'truth' a "Big Boy" knows;
I am God, and I hear the pleas,
Of child, or nation, on it's knee
Another word that must be defined is the word "fools." It is the plural of the word "fool." What is a "fool?" God says in His word, that a "fool" is one who rejects God. That is precisely the meaning of the Scriptures. Psalm 14:1, and 53:1 both reiterate this definition. Why would a person reject God and His existence? All the evidence that a rational person needs is available. There is no real evidence for evolution, yet foolish men embrace it as scientific fact. "I" are words from an old love song, but never were words more true concerning living a life without God and His word. The decisions made by our legislators backed up by the nine black robed priests of Baal have done more to destroy our country than any external threat could ever cost. The vast majority of the people in our nation today, including the courts, are ignorant blockheads when it comes to understanding God. Yes, there is a vast confederacy of fools that exists in America. It is a people without God in their lives.
Proverbs 2:6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
2 Timothy 2:7 Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.
I remember the musical called, "South Pacific". In it there is a very poignant scene where Lt. Cable sings a song about how our cultures define acceptability. Some words of the song are, "You've got to be carefully taught". Yes, you must be taught to dislike someone because of their skin color or the shape of their eyes. It is the same with the existence of God. "You've got to be carefully taught" to disbelieve in God, and unfortunately, most people today are taught that very, illogical, demented premise. But, that does not change the truth. Only a fool rejects God and His word, and when a foolish person does that, they lose the ability to think rationally. As a result we accept men and women who believe that if a baby lives through a botched abortion … just let it die on the table. Why would anybody vote for a person with that kind of irrational thinking? It is this kind of corrupted society that produces a Kermit Gosnell, a John Gacy, a James Eagan Holmes, an Adam Lanza, and now Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnae.
Now we have re-elected the same kind of people that got us into the mess that we are in today. What could have been the motive behind voting for these "fools?" There is no logical, human explanation for the 'brilliant stupidity' happening in our world. There has to be a supernatural phenomenon behind the blindness of an electorate that would vote for people who are bent on the destruction of America. Could it have anything to do with what Jesus said in:
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Yes, people without Jesus as their Saviour are susceptible and vulnerable to the devil's will and control. I am convinced that what God word says is absolutely accurate and sensible, yet a vast majority of our country rejects, ignores, ridicules and generally impugns God, His word, and the people who believe His words. What has happened to our country? America has lost the ability to reason. They have lost their mind. In the Bible there is an account of a maniac who terrorized the countryside where he lived. No man could control him. No restraints could hold him. He was out of his mind. Yet, Jesus confronted this man and cast out his demons. We then find this man sitting at the feet of Jesus in his right mind. This is such an example for us today. People must trust Jesus as their personal Saviour to be able to regain their ability to think. God's word is clear. Without the Lord Jesus Christ living within, man is hopelessly lost and desperately evil. If you are lost, you must trust Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour without delay. John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
