    The USA is against itself. Sad. American Empire’s sunset is at sight, and the nations may plunge into endless conflicts without the strong America, but anything is better than Sodom’s monopoly reign. Sodom should not be mighty on earth, for the sake of all children. Jude 1. Each nation to its own destiny according to God’s justice and His mercy. Isaiah 40. Mankind will discover again that God saves and not the USA or any other strong nation. Americans must respect their Christian forefathers because they are better than modern men.
