ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The political situation in the United States today seems to be a replay of the Revolutionary War. On one side was England with its kings, laws, taxes, suppression of freedom and disregard for colonist wishes. Now we have the big-government Democratic Party headed by President Obama and his party’s rules and regulations that suppress our freedoms and support high taxes, the legalization of abortion, the homosexual agenda and more.

During the Revolutionary War, on the other side were the colonists, roughly divided into two groups. The Tories sided and compromised with England and refused to fight. The Patriots had had enough of England’s tyranny and started a revolution to gain freedom. Today, we have the establishment Republicans and the Tea Party.

One major difference is that in Revolutionary War times we were a Christian nation with strong Christian leaders. We also had churches that placed their trust in God and stood firmly against evil. We desperately need a Christian revival to replace what we have today.

The United States is at a crossroads, with the upcoming November election an indication of our future.
