Signs of our time:

Children may not pray in public schools.

Children may not pledge allegiance to the American flag in public schools.

God’s Ten Commandments may not be seen in public schools.

In December 2011 on New Year’s Eve, President Barack Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act, declaring the entire United States of America a “battlefield” and giving the U.S. government the right to detain an American citizen indefinitely and even assassinate them, if you are suspected of terrorism, without due process.

In March 2012, Obama signed the National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive Order that effectively declares peacetime martial law, giving the president the authority over food, water, fuel, transportation, livestock and more if government decides it is an emergency.

What is next for you? What if you mention God in your sleep?
