It’s looking more and more like Joe Biden may become the next President of the United States of America.
With that in mind, there is some great wisdom below from Dan Miller of 48Days.com. Through a barnyard story, Miller provides the best and simplest explanation for understanding how life in America will ultimately devolve when the Biden Administration begins implementing its socialist agendas.

Why Eagles Fly And Turkeys Are Dinner
Once upon a time in the long, long ago the Eagle and the Turkey were very good friends. Everywhere they went these friends went together. It was not uncommon for people to look up and see the Eagle and the Turkey flying side by side through the air.
One day while flying, the Turkey said to the Eagle: “Let’s drop down and get a bite to eat. My stomach is growling.”
“Sounds like a good idea to me,” replied the Eagle. So the two birds glided down to earth, saw several animals eating, and decided to join them. They landed next to the Cow. The Cow was busy eating corn, but noticed that the Eagle and the Turkey were soon sitting on the ground next to her. “Welcome,” said the Cow. “Help yourself to the corn.”
This took the two birds by surprise. They were not accustomed to having other animals share their food quite so readily. “Why are you willing to share your corn with us?” asked the Eagle. “Oh, we have plenty to eat here. Mr. Farmer gives us all we want,” replied the Cow. With that invitation, the Eagle and The Turkey jumped in and ate their fill. When they finished, the Turkey asked more about Mr. Farmer. “Well,” said the Cow, “he grows all our food. We don’t have to work for the food at all.”
“You mean,” said the Turkey, “that Mr. Farmer simply gives you all you want to eat?” “That’s right,” said the Cow. “Not only that, but he gives us a place to live.” The Turkey and the Eagle were shocked! They had never heard of such a thing. They had always had to search for food and work for shelter.
When it came time to leave, the Turkey and the Eagle began to discuss the situation. “Maybe we should just stay here,” said the Turkey. “We can have all the food we want without working. And that barn over there sure beats those nests we have been building. Besides, I’m getting tired of always having to work for a living.”
“I don’t know about all this,” said the Eagle. “It sounds too good to be true. I find it hard to believe that one can get something for nothing. Besides, I kinda like flying high and free through the air. And providing for food and shelter isn’t so bad. In fact, I find it quite challenging.”
Well, the Turkey thought it over and decided to stay where there was free food and shelter. But the Eagle decided that he loved his freedom too much to give it up, and enjoyed the consistent challenge of making his own living. So, after saying good-bye to his old friend the Turkey, the Eagle set sail for the unknown adventure.
Everything went fine for the Turkey. He ate all he wanted. He never worked. He grew fat and lazy. But then one day he heard the farmer’s wife mention that Thanksgiving was coming in the next few days and it would be nice to have roast turkey for dinner. Hearing that, the Turkey decided it was time to check out and rejoin his good friend Mr. Eagle. But when he attempted to fly he found that he had grown too fat and lazy. Instead of being able to fly, he could only flutter. So on Thanksgiving Day the farmer’s family sat down to roast Turkey.
When you give up the challenges of life in pursuit of “security” (and “safety” – my add), you may give up your freedom.
I had the opportunity to experience life inside a communist country in 1984. Our oldest daughter and I went to Romania for two weeks with my mom and dad to visit his side of the family. Under communistic rule, the entire country was on a rationed system of goods and services.
Everything they consumed was rationed on a monthly basis. From food, to gasoline, to electricity, to health care. This is what “equality” looks like in a socialist/communist system of government! Everyone except those in power were equally poor. Those making the rules didn’t live by the same rules they imposed on the masses, they lived liked kings and queens! Sound familiar?
The Romanian government, under Nicolae Ceaușescu, controlled everything! In 1989 the Romanian people, and even the Romanian army, finally had enough of Ceaușescu’s tyrannical rule and rebelled against him. He and his wife were arrested, quickly put on trial, and immediately executed by firing squad.
Does this sound impossible for America? Just take a look at what’s happening in states like Washington, Oregon, California, Minnesota, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New York, Maine, Virginia, North Carolina and other states governed by liberal Democrats with socialist mindsets. Is this really what we want for the future of America? I pray not!
Jesus warned His disciples, “Every kingdom (nation) divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.” (Matthew 12:25 -NIV)
America is at that crossroads right now! Will we heed Jesus’ warning and find ways to unite and heal or will we continue down the road to ruin?
Without God, through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ at the center of our lives, household, city, and national unity will be virtually impossible to achieve.
