To the editor:

My fellow Americans, I ask your help in saving our beloved country which is fast falling into bondage because no one will take a stand to save her.

I could write a lengthy letter detailing the lies we have been told, the many acts of subterfuge, the constraints we have been saddled with, the repression of our God-given rights, and the total disregard for our Constitution which was crafted by our forefathers who were led by God over 200 years ago to guide us and direct us. Most of us know all too well the trouble our country is in and the inability or unwillingness of our politicians in Washington to do anything to help us.


While we followed our God-given directives we were blessed and prospered. We have now strayed so far from what God and our forefathers intended that it is painful to look at our country and realize what it has become. Evil has taken over, and we, in our apathy, have let it.

There is a movement underway by the states to call a convention on Article 5 of the Constitution. You can check it out online and get all the details. It takes 34 states to call the convention; 33 have filed a resolution so far. We are so close to having this convention. It is our best chance for solving this federal government encroachment on our freedoms in a peaceful manner.

It will not be easy, but it does give us hope. Call and e-mail Sens. Dan Coats and Joe Donnelly, and Rep. Todd Young (if you live in Johnson County). Let them know you support the Article 5 Convention and encourage them to do all they can to bring it about. The Daily Journal publishes their contact information frequently.

We all know what has happened to our country — she is a mere shadow of what she was. Her loving heart that beat strongly for 200 years is now in arrhythmia, and she is facing cardiac arrest if emergency measures are not taken soon.

People across America need to start praying fervently to God to bring us people of strong morals, integrity, courage and faith, to lead our country. We need CPR — Christian Prayers Renewing.

Instead of just letting the evil-doers remove God from our institutions and anywhere else they choose, we need to stand up and say, “Enough!” If they are offended by God, let them live somewhere else, the choices are many.

Let this Fourth of July become the turning point, the beginning of “We the People” uniting to take back our country. Pray like you have never prayed before and keep it up until God hears us. If we turn back to God, we will again be blessed. If we don’t, like Sodom and Gomorrah, we will be destroyed. The choice is ours.

Apathy is out, action is in. We know the power of prayer. Pray every day like your country’s freedom depends on it — it does.
