I look around me and see,

Everything I’ve known coming apart;

Angry people seeking unity in common hatred,

Tribes forming; preparing for a great battle…

Over the lost soul of a too proud nation.

Denying the Spirit that kept them,

Bent on destruction,

On war.


“It’s time to tear it all down!” they say,

Abandon that old Constitution, let’s go backward,

And instead be like Europe, that far superior model!

Of Democratic Socialism, “we’ll all feed each other man”

But government workers produce no food, no housing, no necessities…

We’ll leave all of that to a sub-class of workers,

Independent Neanderthals of small business!

And immigrant workers with no legal status…

Slaves to serve the governing elite!

Equality earned through compliance.

To the Government,

Who bestows it;



But look what we’ve built they say!

A tall tower of power and untold wealth!

A marriage of Corporation and Government;

Come! Get in bed with us and we’ll make your dreams come true!

Just sign this contract, pay your dues, we’ll keep you safe from terrorists!

Give us your liberty in exchange for health care and we’ll pretend to be capitalists!

But forget that old Constitution, idealism never to be…

Be pragmatic; say to yourself “What’s in it for me?”

Tear down that dream in your heart,

Old dream of personal liberty!

Equality, freedom for all,

Morally sound persons,

Longing to be free…

Crush them!




They tore Woodstock down as a prophecy…

In their desperation born glee of destruction!

In hatred of the global giant their parents deny but all see;

The Beastlike Government growing and growing…

In youth, hearts long to be free!

Rebellion whispers,” Anarchy!”

“Don’t tread on me!”

But no, not the Constitution!

Old White man’s Document!

Lost in interpretation…

No borders! No boundaries!

Each to their own!

Liberty to the strongest!

By the Gun!

Personal Totalitarian,



Mourning America, I went searching for freedom’s song,

The one that echoes in this old American heart:

Individual freedom; guarded by morality;

Equal value; God given rights to life,

Liberty, and pursuit of happiness;

Freedom to succeed and to fail;

All outlined in the Constitution.

Old Document that when left to do so,

Interprets itself.

The forgotten


The true American Dream;

The Spirit of right Unity;

A common dream of personal liberty,

With respect for the liberty of others;

Dependence upon God not Government,

Freedom maintained by healthy morality,

That denies the need to be governed,

By other men and women;


Rule ends;

If we but begin,


On our knees!

And live as the men and women,

God intended us to be.

Are you willing? “To die or live free?”

Or will you knuckle under,


To Totalitarian.









Cowboy Independent

The American West is where I belong!

It is the land I’m made from;

A wild land tamed by ancestors strong;

I am as tough as they come!

Rugged individual of the cowboy-song;

Living hard, won’t succumb!

To societal standards, avoid the throng;

In the city I am a sore-thumb!

Big skies over empty land, liberty-song!

Cowboy symbol of freedom!

Pull up my boots I stand tall and long!

Now, I’m an outmoded bum?

Hear America singing her death-song?

My liberty sold for a crumb…

Of empty promises is so dang wrong!

D.C. filled with lying scum!

Cowboy Independent this final-song…

Farewell American freedom!

Shoot me dead in this land I belong!

To tyranny I won’t succumb!

America! I am what made you strong!

Now, silence freedom drum…

Left-Right boot march! Comrade-song!


Redemption is Joyous Liberty!

In the mind of every person lives the divine and the profane. Though some of us lean more heavily one way than the other, our every thought and action is a combination of good and evil. This sets us apart from all other creatures that populate the earth. It makes us more powerful than all other beasts, even god-like but it is also, our curse. Human beings are double-minded creatures, unstable in all of our ways. Even those who desire what is good, commit evil and those who choose evil sometimes, accomplish good. The outcomes of our choices often evade our ultimate intentions. Though we are god-like on the earth, we perish because we are unable to choose correctly between good and evil and produce ultimate good. Our instability not only, affects our own kind but threatens the entire world with extinction.

Denial (in all its lying forms) is the common chosen method for coping with the evil that human choices create. Like naughty children, we run and hide from God and when we are exposed; and the Lie is the fig-leaf we naturally choose to hide our sinful imperfection. Hoping to avoid the evil in natural consequences, we add a little more evil. Many choose to deny the existence of evil, altogether and embrace the Lie by thinking they can rightly employ it and control their personal destiny. Inner peace is the promise sought for by accepting the evil within as good and normal but the promise is false. Those who choose to follow their double-minded reasoning (as we all sometimes do) follow their predilections into personal dysfunction. Putting trust in denial is putting trust in evil and the trap is set for Satan to claim ownership over misguided souls. He is a cruel slave-master and his slaves will receive intimate knowledge of torture and torment. Those who fall prey to his cunning end by becoming depraved human beings, good for nothing but burning.

Truth (in factual and divine living form) is what all people need to balance the instability within. We mustn’t deny that evil exists inside us, nor surrender to it. It can’t be covered with lies. The only way to overcome evil is with good and only, God is good. He is the only One able to rule over evil and work it to ultimate good. He sent down His goodness in the form of Jesus, His Son to deliver us from evil; most specifically, from the evil that dwells inside of everyone. Jesus is divine truth in living form and He is the cure for sin. It is in following Jesus and in mirroring His ways that believers learn to submit their inner evil to good, in the hope of a future realization of God’s ultimate good. This is the only way to avoid a future of ultimate evil and personal destruction. This faithful journey of hope begins with truthful acknowledgment of evil’s source and acceptance of a true covering of sinful acts that is only, the blood Jesus shed (the pure blood of a pure life lived) in order to purchase God’s forgiveness for us. This is Salvation, a graceful covering of our sinful nature that enables us to learn how to rule over the evil inside us with good, by trial and error. True faith in Jesus is the life-long, earthly struggle against personal sin; those who endure such hardship in an unceasing inner war and persevere in hopes of achieving full liberty from sin and death will realize the long-ago promised and hoped for Redemption. On that day, God’s children will shout in joyous liberty!
