As in the song "Lawyers In Love" we have a land, a nation with too many in high places willing to do anything for money neglecting people, honor and principle but a change is coming. No more falling for the lie of living only individualistic and independent lives leaving us divided and conquerable by powerful special interests but a people, a nation collaborating for the greater common good in various groups all across the nation. A land of people working together to help one another with a vision moreover as Jesus would have us be. Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, Kindness....something about another Land. The change is coming

Eisenhower Knew What He Was Talking About

In the last speech President Dwight D. Eisenhower gave before the nation he warned about the dangers of the military industrial complex. When George Washington was president he said he had a vision/dream about the important future of the nation he was beginning to guide and I know few Christians that have a problem with that.
God has worked with leaders of great nations many times in history through prophets, dreams and visions so it is quite possible that President Eisenhower had a very profound dream or vision about the future of our nation and felt he should warn us about it's meaning.
Going before the country and proclaiming he had a vision from God probably was a bit much for him in the stoic nature of the 50's so he would surely just give it as a warning. You have to admit that the delivery of that line about undue influence from the military industrial complex, was kind of unusual. It was as if it was something he had been strongly warned about himself and needed to get it into the speech. One can easily believe this because such a dream/warning would have correctly portended the future. The influence of the military industrial complex has run amok. Their influence has is in fact become undue, unwarranted and dangerous in expanding itself into unnecessary war and empire mentality but the rightwing establishment and religious right are lost in it. They fully believe in this expansion of the military.

Somehow God warned President Eisenhower about the future where even His own people would fall under the ideology of military expansion and influence. It is not, NOT a road we need go down and as Christians we need to face where we are and correct ourselves before it is too late.

Pray it is not already too late. For this nation is on a road that can easily lead into a darker future and frankly sheer utter stupidity so abounds one can only wonder what it will take to wake us up once again into an alert and knowledgable citizenry. If we had an ounce of wisdom, and i mean Godly wisdom not worldly wisdom, about human behavior we could avoid it and if we would give God an ounce of our obedience to Him, avoid it we will.

But don't hold your breath.........pray!
