WHAT HAPPENED, AMERICA?
While on tour, Kicking Eagle is often asked about the problems in America and how they "came to be." Then comes the question: "What can we do about it?"
Eagle says that the problems have come about for many reasons. We now have gangs, drugs, alcoholics, Satanism, witchcraft, child abuse and other problems in the news every day. And of course we have anti-gang task forces, anti-drug task forces, etc. in the news every day.
But let's get back to basics! Take a look around. Check out Old Glory the next time you see her. Many times she will be hanging several inches to several feet down the flagpole. She is faded, torn, and ragged. Many times she has holes in her. Not from battle, but from neglect. You don't see her raised every morning and taken down in the evening very often nowadays. And you don't hear the young Americans say the Pledge of Allegiance to her at schools across the country like they used to.
God and prayer are also missing from the schools...or "appear" to be. But, as long as there are "tests" in school, there WILL be prayer!
Many of our God-given rights have been and continue to be replaced with permits from man. Our Constitution has been shredded. If you will take the time to read THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, you will find that the problems our forefathers were concerned with...should concern US now.
Read the Preamble to The Constitution.... and Think about it!
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Think about it! "...in order to form a more perfect union..." Yes, we do have a way to go!; "...to establish justice..."; Well, we seem to have more of a Just Us system than a justice system; "..insure domestic tranquility..."; yes, quite a ways to go; "..."provide for the common defense..."; We have turned our military bases over to foreign troops; "promote the general welfare..."; Perhaps we have been promoting the general public onto welfare?; "..and secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our Posterity..."; Well, there is at least recognition of God, because all blessings come from Him!
It is time to get back to basics, America! Let us all be proud of our heritage, our culture, our religious beliefs, our economic level and our individuality....but let us all love and help each other...and please, let us all stand together...and...RESTORE AMERICA!
