Providence and America

My response to a post on Facebook regarding God’s Hand in guiding America:

This nation (America) is the most benevolent nation in the history of the world towards its own citizens and those of other countries.  Their is no doubt God has guided the steps of this nation from the Pilgrims until now. However, it is us who have run from the protection of His shadow to forge our own path. It is a path that has gone against everything He has set forth. We have become a nation more concerned about dollars than prayer. This was not a result of capitalism but a product of atheism and a replacing of Judeo-Christian principles with the religion of secularism. Our Founding Fathers laid out a blueprint for a government that would guarantee basic freedoms and rights. Those basic ideals have been eroded through ignorance and Godlessness. Want to see a country capable of blowing past everything it has accomplished before to new and greater heights? Get to know the truth about the foundations of America and return to those values rather than instituting policies born of government. Those government policies have failed over and over again throughout history. One need only look to the former Soviet Union and National Socialist Germany to see the colossal failures of social democracy. Our success is laid out before us in words and our history prior to the 20th Century. We need only to see it with our own eyes instead of through the prism of those that wish for our failure and the failure of freedom and liberty.
