commentary: A Declining of our Liberties
Competition Has an Acute Downside to it
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 08-Nov-08; Sermon #909c; 11 minutes
John Ritenbaugh, acknowledging that God has allowed Barack Obama to become our president, raises the issue of the pernicious decline of our precious liberties. An essayist writing a century ago forecast the demise of the small entrepreneurial businesses being swallowed up by larger enterprises. President Obama has expressed the desire to require young people to participate in 'volunteer' services to America, giving government the opportunity to instill progressive values such as abortion and homosexual marriage. The federal government is the ultimate fish, swallowing up the small fish and their ability to make choices. Government control means loss of liberty and loss of quality in productiveness. The Carter-Clinton team has been resurrected to modern Israel's detriment.
