American 'empire' following Rome's path

America was founded as a constitutional federal republic composed of a limited federal government and sovereign states. Nations must evolve to survive. However, the problem is they always evolve too much. All change is not for the better.

World history records the death of every former empire. Nations evolve to the point that they stray from the foundations that they were built upon and decline until they cease to exist. America has evolved too far and is following the same path to destruction that the Roman empire followed 2,000 years ago. The only anomaly is the South's fight during 1861-65 to retain constitutional government. The Confederate States of America fell battling under the banner of "States Rights." Confederate principles are (1) limited constitutional federal government, (2) states rights, (3) resistance to tyranny and (4) Christian values.

Excess immigration (excess numbers of slaves), destruction of family values, and corrupt government destroyed the Roman Empire, and immigration (illegal and excess legal), destruction of family values, and corrupt government are destroying the American empire. Several years ago, Wal-Mart's decision to join and support homosexuals as part of their diversity program underscored the decline of family values. They refuse to adopt Confederate principles and values as part of that diversity program.

Old Line Southern senators and congressmen voted against the destructive bills that were voted into law by the other sections of the country. Georgia Sen. Richard B. Russell and Sen. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina were two of the most stalwart. Southern "common sense" has almost ceased to exist in American government.

The northern socialists who own Hollywood and the mass media actually control America. "He who has the gold makes the rules." Through movies and TV, the American public is being unknowingly brainwashed. They believe they are watching harmless fictional entertainment. Research proves that young people develop and form values, opinions, and beliefs while watching such "harmless entertainment." They are being indoctrinated for the coming "New World Order" -- a socialist, godless "One World Government" under the United Nations.

Hitler and Gobbels understood the power of propaganda and the northern socialists that control America do also. They want Americans to eat Big Macs, watch TV programs like "Seinfeld," vote in sham elections and be proud to be Americans. We should be proud to be Americans, but we need to realize what is happening behind the veil of propaganda.

When the South lost the War for Southern Independence in 1865, Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee told his men to go home and be good Americans. Southerners did this and have fought America's wars in larger numbers than any other section of the country. Yet, we are attacked by the media and made the nation's whipping boy and the butt of jokes as "gratitude" for our contributions.

Why? Because the South is the most Christian, conservative part of the nation. These liberal socialists have two goals for America -- (1) Destroy Christianity and replace it with secular humanism and (2) replace what is left of democracy with total socialism. Once they destroy the Christian conservative South, the rest of America will fall in line like sheep behind secular humanism and Socialism. That is the real reason they want to destroy Confederate principles and values.

The infamous socialist Karl Marx said, "A people separated from their heritage are easily persuaded." So, under the "moral high ground" guise of black civil rights, they have carried forth their propaganda campaign. They are using black activists to unknowingly do their "dirty work" for them. They also use what the infamous communist Vladimir Lenin called "useful idiots" to help accomplish their agenda. Those who are helping destroy Confederate heritage fit in this group -- "white liberals with a guilt complex." Liberalism is all about "feelings" as opposed to "fact." These "useful idiots" also include Southern politicians who help remove Confederate flags which are a symbol of the principles and values America was founded upon.

The politically incorrect 752-page book "The South Under Siege 1830-2000" explains in detail what has happened and is currently happening in America. It is available from Amazon.com or from myself jkingantiquearmsbellsouth.net.

In the United States of America, there are only two directions left. Either we will reclaim our heritage or we will eventually surrender our Constitution, Bill of Rights and sovereignty to the chains of slavery. The most compelling question that the people of America have always grappled with is how to build a government strong enough to preserve order and yet leave society free enough to prevent tyranny.

Why does the Herald put drivel like this on the editorial page. Good gracious what tripe! It seems to me with your stable tradition of journalism you would have a bit more intellectual discernment.

Mr. King with all due respect, you have got to be kidding. Although some of your views are probably true. We have different opinions of how and why America will follow Rome's path. Not only the Roman Empire but all of the great dynasties before us fell. And although I do agree that the American Empire will, and is falling before our very eyes. It has nothing to do with Confederate flags being removed from buildings, nor destroying Confederate principles and values. But more to do with destiny, you see I believe America wrote her destiny long ago and is still writing it today. And you can dissect that statement any way you see fit.
