Pope Paul VI’s encyclical Humanae Vitae prophesied the great demographic winter that would ensue in the world, with universal sexual perversity, the murdering of innocent babies in the womb, and the breakdown of marriage and family life, if the hedonistic practice of artificial contraception was introduced and embraced by the world.

In his greatest work of all, Ronald Reagan, in his treatise, The Conscience of a Nation, reminds America that if its convictions are that all life is sacred and that each individual is guaranteed by God and by law to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and if our conduct is not in harmony with these convictions, America will cease to be that city on a hill. America will not have the moral fortitude to lead other nations into that freedom with which God has blessed us. Ronald Reagan was a true Israelite, a man without guile (John 1:47). There was no pretense in his words or actions. I hope this legacy will be carried on by Rick Perry and Herman Cain so America will truly be that city on a hill.

It is ironic that President Barack Hussein Obama has promised America that he will create jobs and prosperity while promoting abortion and sexual perversity (sodomy) which have been the cause of our economic downfall and demographic winter.

Obama thinks he can create jobs by building roads and bridges. I have a way of creating 10 million jobs tomorrow. All we have to do is deport 10 million illegal immigrants who are doing all the manual work in America, and replace them with United States citizens. But do Americans want these jobs? The trend in America during the past 40 years has been to sell out America’s manufacturing jobs to China’s totalitarian communist regime, ignoring their atrocities. The Chinese produced cheap goods from slave labor, which we happily bought to our own detriment. We have the same sentiment about using illegal immigrants to do our work, albeit under better conditions, yet the same principle of using these poor illegal immigrants to do our work and prosper our coffers at the expense of “law and truth.”

“What law and reason were unable to accomplish, had now to be done by the uncertain and dreadful dispenser of God’s judgments, war. War, with its abominably casual, inaccurate methods of destroying good and bad together, but at least unquestionably able to hew a way out of intolerable situations, when through man’s delusion or perversity every better way is blocked.” — Abraham Lincoln.
