The One

This is a very interesting story depicting how I believe our nation is acting today. I believe we are overestimating our President's knowledge on politics, and underestimating how much power he really has and who he is working for. I don't usually get into politics, but I really enjoyed how this piece was written. I hope you enjoy it to...

The One

And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land
called America , having lost their morals, their initiative, and their
will to defend their liberties, chose as their Supreme Leader that
person known as The One.

He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning; but He
hypnotized the people telling them, “I am sent to save you. My lack
of experience, my questionable ethics, my monstrous ego, and my
association with evil doers are of no consequence. For I shall save you
with Hope and Change. Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the land
that he who preceded me is evil, that he has defiled the nation, and
that all he has built must be destroyed.”

And the people rejoiced. For even though they knew not what The One
would do, He had promised that it was good; and they believed.

And The One said “We live in the greatest country in the world. Help
me change everything about it!”

And the people said,
“Hallelujah!! Change is good!”

Then He said, “We are going to tax the rich fat-cats,”----

And the people said “Sock it to them!” “---- and redistribute
their wealth.”

And the people said, “Show us the money!”

And then He said, “Redistribution of wealth is good for everybody”

And Joe the plumber asked, "Are you kidding me? You’re going to
steal my money and give it to the deadbeats??”

And The One ridiculed and taunted him, and Joe’s personal records
were hacked and publicized.

One lone reporter asked, “Isn’t that Marxist policy?”

And she was banished from the kingdom!

Then a citizen asked, “With no f oreign relations experience and
having zero military experience or knowledge, how will you deal with
radical terrorists?”

And The One said, “Simple. I shall sit with them and talk with them
and show them how nice we really are; and they will forget that they
ever wanted to kill us all!”

And the people said, “Hallelujah!! We are safe at last, and we can
beat our weapons into free cars for the people!”

Then The One said, “I shall give 95% of you lower taxes.”

And one, lone voice said, “But 40% of us don’t pay ANY taxes.”

So The One said, “Then I shall give you some of the taxes the
fat-cats
pay!”

And the people said, “Hallelujah!! Show us the money!”

Then The One said, “I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell your
homes!”

And the people yawned and the slumping housing market collapsed.

And He said, "I shall mandate employer- funded health care for EVERY
worker and raise the minimum wage. And, I shall give every person
unlimited health care and medicine and transportation to the clinics.”

And the people said, “Gimme some of that!”

Then he said, “I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas.”

And the people said, “Where’s my rebate check?”

Then The One said, “I shall bankrupt the coal industry and
electricity rates will skyrocket!”

And the people said, “Coal is dirty, coal is evil, no more coal!
But we don’t care for that part about higher electric rates.”

So The One said, “Not to worry. If your rebate isn’t enough to
cover your expenses, we shall bail you out. Just sign up with ACORN and
your troubles are over!”

And the people said, “Hallelujah!!” And they made him King!

And so it came to pass that employers,
facing spiraling costs and
ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers. Others
simply gave up and went out of business and the economy sank like unto a
rock dropped from a cliff. The banking industry was destroyed. Manufacturing slowed to a crawl.
And, more of the people were without a means of support.

Then The One said, “I am the The One – The Messiah - and I’m
here to save you! We shall just print more money so everyone will have
enough!”

But our foreign trading partners said unto Him, “Wait a minute. Your
dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will have to pay
more...”

And the people said, “Wait a minute. That is unfair!!”

And the world said, “Neither are these other idiotic programs you
have embraced. Lo, you have become a Socialist state and a second-rate
power. Now you shall play by our rules!”

And the people cried out, “Alas, alas!! What have we done?"

But yea verily, it was too late. The people set upon The One and spat
upon him and stoned him, and his name was dung. And, the once mighty
nation was no more; and the once proud people were without sustenance or
shelter or hope. And, the Change The One had given them was as like
unto a poison that had destroyed them and like a whirlwind that consumed
all that they had built.

And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish,
“Give us back our nation and our pride and our hope!!”

But it was too late, and their homeland was no more.

This is what the Bible says in Isaiah 46:8-10:

"Remember this, fix it in mind, take it to heart, you rebels. Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please."


We must never forget who our God really is. We must always remember that we are not to put other gods before our God! He is first, the last, the beginning, the end. With that said, I believe we also have a duty as Christians to uphold.

This is what 1Timothy2 says:

"1I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— 2for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth."

I pray that you all would consider being wise in these last times. I pray that you would be smart, on your guard, yet loving and continue to pray for everyone, including our President.

I love you all,
Cortnee :)

God it sucks to be intelligent, why wasn't I born like Courtnee or "Anonymous" I would love this world and all the people in it.

Hatred and close mindedness may solve the issue for you in your own head, but it hurts everyone else, wearing ignorance and hatred and being self-righteous about it, it's a badge of honor to hate.
