I agree with your sentiments wholeheartedly. To me, America is the Titanic, having already struck the iceberg, the Captain and crew (the leaders) debate over whether the string quartet should play "Thus Spake Zarathustra" or "American Pie". While the passengers debate whether this ship will sink headfirst or stern first. Some debate whether it is "fair" that first class passengers were able to have eggs benedict while the lower classes had to make do with a hard-boiled egg. Still others are sure that the good ship Titanic will limp along and make harbor safely, all evidence to the contrary, notwithstanding. The crew below decks debates whether to inform everyone they are out of coal to stoke the fires of the engine and they are dead in the water. Although the voices may be raised many decibels trying to convince their neighbor of the righteousness of their "cause", they overlook the obvious...we are all on the same boat and it is going down. The answer? "even so, Lord Jesus, COME QUICKLY!"
