Manhattan Declaration

Our country is falling apart. We are seeing a complete reversal of morals in this great country of ours. Values we used to believe seem to have completely flipped to being not so desirable and not so just as if people were more concerned with the fad of being with the "in crowd" and not standing for what is right. What used to be considered moral, good for the majority of the people and the basis in which to bring up our children is no longer true for many. It seems to be the fad to live together, have children and then get married; white collar crime is continuously proving to be the way to the corporate top; and the punishment given for rape and murder seems to amount to less and less as time goes by.

Now many of us look at our government and wonder if justice and morality have fallen out of Washington, D.C. and into the Potomic River? The current Administration seems to have abdicated their responsibility to protect the rights and safety of the American public. They seem to be more interested in political correctness than reality. Where is the morality of those who are attacking the people who are willing to protect us? Why are they even going to the point of threatening to not accept the criminals turned over to ICE by the legitimate police agencies of Arizona?

Maybe it is time to rededicate ourselves to the preservation of this marvelous country we inherited! For those of us who are actively concerned about the direction our Nation is being dragged, one possible solution is to reevaluate the implications of a recent call to action by the leaders of the religious community, namely the Manhattan Declaration issued in November 2009.

Utah, United States
I am a retired grandmother who lost her husband of 42 years in 2010, to cancer. I relocated from Ventura, CA to a community near Salt Lake City, Utah to be with my son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters. I am a believer in Jesus our Lord and in the true Sabbath as our worship day. I am learning more and more about what our role is here on Earth as well as what it will be when Yahshua returns. I love crochet, watercolors, and writing. My newest passion is writing poetry. I would love to hear from others who enjoy these crafts; come visit and share your interests.



JULY 4 - Time For Tea

The American people came out on July 4 to protest high taxes and run-a-way government spending. From 11:00 till 2:00 p.m., citizens of Ventura, CA came out to show their support for less taxes and less government interference. As a spectator and one who attended the first Ventura Tea Party, I would say we doubled the turnout of patriots.

All across the country the signs, flags and banners that were carried at the tea parties showed the position that the American people are taking toward its government. They are mad and they are not going to take it anymore!
