Where is the greater emphasis of my focus to be, who is going the White House or who is going to the Father’s House? Yet it matters since who is king relates to who is the KING OF KINGS. Addressing our sin matters as long as holiness matters to God. Someone penned this classic below on the life and death of nations. Since democratic nations with godly foundations generally last about 200 years, how long would an Islamic Iraq last - maybe two years? Why are we pouring an ethical standard into them that is failing at home?
About the time our original thirteen states adopted their new constitution in 1787,
'A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a
permanent form of government.'
'A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover

'From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates who
promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that
every Democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is
'The average duration of the world's greatest civilizations from the
beginning of history, has been about 200 years'.
'During those 200 years, the nations always progressed through the following
1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
3. From courage to liberty;
4. From liberty to abundance;

6. From complacency to apathy;
7. From apathy to dependence;
8. From dependence back into bondage'

Professor Olson adds: 'In aggregate, the map of the territory Bush won was
mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of this great country.
Gore's territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in
government-owned tenements and living off various forms of government
Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the 'complacency
and apathy' phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some
forty percent of the nation's' population already having reached the
'governmental dependency ' phase.
