Unmanifest Destiny



TO what new fates, my country, far
And unforeseen of foe or friend,
Beneath what unexpected star
Compelled to what unchosen end.

Across the sea that knows no beach,
The Admiral of Nations guides
Thy blind obedient keels to reach
The harbor where thy future rides!

The guns that spoke at Lexington
Knew not that God was planning then
The trumpet word of Jefferson
To bugle forth the rights of men.

To them that wept and cursed Bull Run,
What was it but despair and shame?
Who saw behind the cloud the sun?
Who knew that God was in the flame?

Had not defeat upon defeat,
Disaster on disaster come,
The slave’s emancipated feet
Had never marched behind the drum.

There is a Hand that bends our deeds
To mightier issues than we planned;
Each son that triumphs, each that bleeds,
My country, serves It’s dark command.

I do not know beneath what sky
Nor on what seas shall be thy fate;
I only know it shall he high,
I only know it shall be great.

  1. The human being wills to live from the very first moment of existence or he becomes a spontaneous abortion, a miscarriage.
    Some Godless representatives catering to a Godless contingency repudiate a God fearing people, refuse to acknowledge a God fearing people’s freedom of conscience to live their God-given Faith and impose a tax extortion to fund a form of atheism. This form of atheism denies Divine Providence. This form of atheism denies the innate, unalienable human soul with the human soul’s power to reason and love according to the person’s divine dignity as a sovereign person.
    The sovereign person wills to live. When the sovereign person loses his will to live, the sovereign person with sovereignty over himself dies.
    Hawaii has passed legislation that absolves participants in assisted suicide and euthanasia from prosecution for homicide, thereby legalizing murder as a form of government that must be funded by taxes paid by the persons it eliminates.
    It seems that the spawn of Satan is now seducing people to murder in the name of contrived compassion.
    When the human being loses or surrenders his will to live, he will pass into eternity as intended by “their Creator” without the help of bloodlusting, power mongers.
    The administrative state is imitation government.
