Anyone who has been paying attention understands that the U.S. financial situation is beyond out of control. Not only are we over $17 trillion in debt, the latest figures show more than half of Americans are now on the take--via the federal government--from their fellow Americans, and a $22 trillion 'war on poverty' has done exactly zip to reduce poverty.
Are some correct in their claim that Christians should not be politically active? This is a question with which many Christians have struggled, due to the lack of overt New Testament admonitions to do so.

There is a right way to think about and a right way to do something about the mess that American has become. We cannot and should not despair. Rather, we should decide and declare our commitment to live liberty and to pass on the Blessings of Liberty to our posterity.
We were told last week that the greatest threat to our well being today is some new Mohamedean group ISIS who is ravaging the Middle East.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
