“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves”
WHAT HAPPENED TO AMERICA?
by Mark Karapetyan
One day, a hungry bear was ravaging his way through the tall bushes and trees of a jungle looking for food, when he suddenly heard a loud thumping noise that startled him. Confused, and alarmed, he carefully walked to the source of the noise and, to his surprise, noticed a withering, dying, and ebbing eagle, laying down on a rock with its large, wide, wings spread across.
The bear immediately charged toward the eagle to eat it, when he noticed, to his surprise, that tears were pouring down the eagle’s eyes. The eagle lifted his head up, opened his eyes, and sobbed: “Go ahead, eat me. I am slowly dying anyway.”
The bear took a step back, cautiously looked around, and then inquired: “I will, but I have a question first. Is this a trap? Why are you crying? Why don’t you fly away and save yourself?”
Tears kept pouring down the eagle’s eyes as he kept quiet.
“Are you hurt or injured?” the bear asked.
The eagle shook his head and took a deep sigh.
“Why, then do you cry? What seems to be the matter?” the bear questioned.
“I cry because I am heartbroken. I am heartbroken because my own people are slowly killing me,” the eagle responded.
“Huh? What are you talking about? I’m confused! Who is killing you? I’m the only one around here that wants to eat you. By the way, I am Egor. My friends call me ‘the Russian Bear’. What’s your name?” Egor probed.
“Freedom. I am the symbol of America, the greatest country on earth,” the weak eagle whispered.
“FREEDOM? Okay Mr. Freedom, I am famished, and I can’t wait to dig my teeth into your juicy flesh and taste you, but honestly, I feel sorry for you. Death is knocking at your door, and you look pathetic. Are you going to tell me why you are sobbing uncontrollably before I enjoy you for dinner?” Egor requested.
“Help me sit up please” Freedom begged, and then continued: “America was founded on God’s principles, and the foundations of my republic were built on His morals and absolutes. People believed in God and feared Him. They taught his word in schools, churches, and…”
Egor looked up towards the clouds, with his back to Freedom, and angrily interrupted “Ahhh, I’ve had enough of this patriotic rambling. I have heard it from others before and now I am hearing it from you. Your citizens, like yourself, are so gullible, apathetic, and clueless. You cry because your pain is real, and caused by your own people. You were once the shining beacon of light in a dark world, an unshakable foundation, a refuge for the poor and the hungry, a hope for the hopeless, and an example for the world to follow. Look at you today, frail, pitiful, and powerless. You deviated from your basic principles that made you mighty, you ignored and rejected the God who framed the moral and ethical structure of your nation. Your pride and ignorance brought you down to your knees. You STINK eagle ! You elected fools, and evil snakes to run your republic. Look what they have done to your country. Look where you are today as a nation. You have become a wellspring of moral corruption, wickedness, dirt and filth. Do you think your destruction came about overnight? I beg to differ. You were deceived into believing that even without God, you were the best, the strongest, and the wisest. Slowly, day by day, you drifted away from your solid roots; you abandoned the principles that made your nation wealthy. You moved away from the tenants of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. In doing so, you self-destructed. You slowly drifted so far away from your safe shores that when you finally woke up from your mental hibernation, it was too late for you to find your way back to reality. I have no sympathy for your nation, Mr. Freedom. No force or power from the outside could have destroyed you. You did it to your selves. You trampled on your own sacred constitution, disregarded your healthy bills, spat on your morally good legal codes, and changed them with ludicrous, idiotic, depraved and decadent legislations. Today, you are divided, weak, and on the verge of collapse. Just like the mighty empires of old, you will soon fall. Haven’t you learned from the fall of my beloved Mother Russia? You also will fall because as a nation, you are headed toward a deadly cliff. You continually engage in endless and unnecessary wars that drain your nation in every way. You are strangled with a crushing debt that no one will be able to repay, yet you keep spending as if you have the wealth. You are immersed in corruption and greed. Your crooked leaders are deceitful scumbags who break the law and are never held accountable. You are bleeding from your entitlement programs that have no end. You give, give, and give away free stuff, not to help others, but to win votes, and to keep power for yourselves; in the end, who pays for all the free stuff? I know you are not going to believe that I am saying this, but it is true that when nations reject God, they no longer measure themselves in comparison with God. Rather, they make themselves their own measure, and that’s when destruction follows. Sadly, you are deceived into believing that your elected leaders will fix your problems, and you fail to realize that your problems will never be fixed by men because the problems are not political, but moral. As a nation, you have a moral disease. As a nation, you lack the morals to remedy your problems. That’s why the answer to your problems is not political, but spiritual, and only God can fix your nation’s spiritual decay. You have become a nation of fools. Godlessness, yes, Godlessness is your main problem. You have abounded your Christian roots, and now you are paying for it. Thus, you are no longer ‘one nation under God’, but rather ‘one nation under’. ‘Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord’. How blessed can nations be when their God is idols Mr. Freedom?”
Egor glanced over at Freedom, and asked: “Are you listening to me? Why are you so quiet? Freedom, Freedom, can you hear me? Mr. Freedom, are you okay? You are not moving…FREEDOM, are you dead?”
Egor took a deep breath, bowed his head, then slowly knelt down, carried away the dead eagle, wiped away the eagle’s tears, and then…
“We will take America without firing a shot … we will bury you. We can’t expect the American people to jump from capitalism to communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of socialism,until they awaken one day to find that they have communism. We do not have to invade the United States; we will destroy you from within.”
