  1. It is sad that when I was in my 20’s there were of jobs and now it is like this. You just had to have faith in God and go out and get one of many different kinds of jobs. Everyone in their 20’s could move into their own apartment. And everyone did.

    Now faith in God is used for very different goals. Faith in God will be needed to get America headed back in the right direction. I don’t think Romney/Ryan will be able to create as many jobs as they will wish to. Way too many businesses have moved out of America to let there be a quick fix. Major trends in not only the economy but in many people’s viewpoint will have to be changed. 16 trillion in debt will drag America down. And all of the harmful work done by Barack Obama will have to be undone.

    But most importantly America’s attitude toward God will have to be turned around. America has spent 50 years methodically eradicating God from any and every facet of life possible. No Nation can survive doing that. “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.”

    “I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth–that God Governs the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?”

    ~Benjamin Franklin

    “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

    ~John Adams

    “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.”

    ~Samuel Adams

    “Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.”

    ~Charles Carroll, signer of the Declaration of Independence

    “Man will ultimately be governed by God or by tyrants.”

    ~Benjamin Franklin

      Ahh, you took the best quotes! Here’s one….

      ” The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of right and order which Heaven itself has ordained. … Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. … …reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles. It is substantially true that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government.” —– George Washington
