America: Revival or decline?

The last three years for Americans have been brutal. As a mother of two daughters who live in Florida and a Mama for DeSantis, what we went through as parents during COVID reminds us to be careful to support candidates who will govern with character, dignity, and integrity.

The Left has attempted to silence parents, confuse children about gender, force critical race theory ideology on Americans, support abortion until the moment of birth and beyond, shut down churches, and ridicule our faith at every turn. It’s evident what they are after. They are after every stable, life-giving institution that makes a society successful.  

Living in Florida, I have watched Gov. Ron DeSantis stand up, not merely for a political party, but for what is right, even when it went against his political affiliation.  I’m proud to live in the free state of Florida where babies have a greater chance at life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness because our governor signed the Heartbeat Bill. How can we claim to be a moral people when we exercise constant immorality? We can’t have it both ways. The culture of our society has to have boundaries, law, and order if we wish to maintain a decent society. We have gone from a nation where you would see John 3:16 at football games to coaches being arrested for voluntary prayer on a football field. 

What kind of America is this?

When do we get back to a point in our nation where faith is not regulated by the state and prayer doesn’t offend? In Florida, we get to exercise our faith without the government imposing its will on the people. “We are going to tear up all government regulations that force groups to choose between government funding and their faith,” said Gov. DeSantis. I couldn't agree more. With Florida’s universal education freedom policy, Gov. DeSantis signed into law, families are choosing to enroll in Christian and Jewish private schools more than any other state. On top of that, he just launched his Faith and Family Coalition. For me, this is incredibly important because it speaks to the importance of the faith that Ron and Casey DeSantis have and what they are passing on to their children.

We the people want our country back. We are tired of promises made and not kept by Republicans, tired of tyranny, and tired of spineless leadership who care more about their special interest groups and not about the people. We want leadership who is not afraid to stand up to the Left, not those who try to appease the moronic and downright evil dictatorial Democrats. We want an America that our children can grow up in and have a shot at a decent life. We reject an American where the government locks you in your home and tells you you cannot work unless they deem you essential. It’s been three years and it’s still hard to fathom that the American government said it was a crime to provide for your family.  

Americans have learned a lot and were exposed to what was really going on behind the scenes.  We have survived by the grace of God, but now it’s time to make sure we never have this kind of tyranny again and reverse the decline of our great nation while we still have a chance.
