We are now resorting to regimes in our country with a totalitarian mentality. Former President Ronald Reagan already destroyed and shut the doors on some unions that were a voice for the people. This was the first step in bringing the unions’ downfall.

Since that time there have been many attempts to destroy unions and their leadership. And now the government is keying in on the U.S. Postal Service. We are now resorting to political regimes in our country with a totalitarian mentality. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., are leading the charge.

If they succeed in their quest, the middle class will take another hard blow, and the economy will surely be doomed for another recession. Therefore, the Republicans will succeed at making a two-class society, rich and poor. It will increase their power and their control over the little man.

When you take away the unions, you take away the voice of the people. When you take away this voice, you build a totalitarian regime ruled by men and not God. The fall will not come from outside this country; it will come from within.

In other words, no one is going to come and destroy America, because we do a great job of that ourselves.

God never intended for man to govern himself; and if you take a good look at what is going on in the world today, then you‘ll understand why.

Look at our pledge. Should it not say one nation under man? God is not politically correct enough to be in the pledge for our leaders in Washington.

Our money might say “in God we trust,” but I’m sure that most of our trust is going into our money, not in God. Our country is not trusting God for anything. It may not be politically correct to speak God’s name in such a candid way, but I depend on God through his loving Son Jesus Christ. I call that Holy Ghost perfection and protection.
