Eighteen years ago William J Bennett wrote The Death of Outrage. There has been no resurrection. The political seal on the tomb has been strengthened time and again.

Can we call forth a restoration of the outrage that made our nation great? Outrage at the loss of our constitutional right to govern ourselves. Outrage that government has exploded far outside its sole responsibility to protect our right to govern ourselves! Outrage that the murder of babies must be allowed, that the logo on our public restrooms be dictated, that we be told what to teach our own children, when and where and how we can pray, that we must conduct business by violating our own conscience, that chaplains and pastors abandon their values.

That the tragic scourge of human trafficking is largely ignored in this land of the free. That billions of dollars are sent to nations that despise us, burn our flag, and pledge to destroy us along with Israel, our most loyal ally! That dangerous droves invade us, determined to twist our freedom into their degrading Sharia law. Outage at the infringement of our Tenth Amendment: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

Are these not just cause, if you please, for a massive outpouring of outrage? First and foremost, outrage at our own indifference to the sad state of affairs. Massive personal repentance is due. Take time to pray. Stand up for truth and common sense. Resist the path of least resistance. Stop letting others do our thinking for us. Put our outrage to good use. Let our voice be heard by those who strip away our rights.

Tell the Lords and Ladies on the Hill where we stand. “We ought to obey God rather than man.”

Let government by the government, and for the government perish from the earth.
