Seven crimes destroying America

In the past several years, our country has been changing. People have been so busy earning a living, raising children, etc. that we are not paying attention to what is happening all around us, especially in government. We are now accepting morals that were considered wrong in the past, and we’re removing God from everything. Being more tolerant of something, however, doesn’t make it right.

William John Henry Boetcker (1873-1962) was an ordained Presbyterian minister in Germany. He wrote “The Ten Cannots,” which are often quoted. He also wrote a list entitled “Seven National Crimes.” Those crimes are: I don’t think, I don’t know, I don’t care, I’m too busy, I leave well enough alone, I have no time to read and find out, and last but not least, I am not interested. He felt the commission of these crimes would inevitably lead to the end of everything the United States was built to be.

We are committing those crimes routinely and our country is rapidly changing because of it.

Our government lies to us and bypasses the constitution and we’re too busy to find out the facts or insist someone is held accountable. Excuses are made, people die and the country is spending out of control, and we just accept it and go on. We are so busy with our lives that we just won’t pay any attention until it’s too late.

We need to wake up. We can’t believe everything we’re told. Major media outlets stopped being our watchdog for government malpractice years ago. It’s up to each of us to know what’s going on in our country and do something about it before we lose the best governing system the world has ever known.
