The recent tragic death of Dougherty County Police Lt. Cliff Rouse was, in my opinion, a result of the destruction of family values and morals in America. So, if the murder of this fine courageous officer and family man is more than a simple random act of violence, then the question arises as to who and what shoulders the blame for excessive crime in America.

Many of the problems modern America has to deal with today can be traced back to changes that took place in American government as a result of the Civil War which was in reality no less than a socialist overthrow of Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights by the new socialist Republican party and President Abraham Lincoln. The foundation for the growth of big government was established.

The NAACP was formed in 1909. While I support anyone who wants to improve themselves there is reason to believe that the NAACP may have adopted the wrong philosophy and procedures to accomplish this goal. Black American Booker T. Washington believed that hard work and merit, not unconstitutional federal rules, edicts, and regulations were the way to end discrimination. He is quoted as saying "No greater injury can be done to any youth than to let him feel that because he belongs to this or that race he will be advanced in life regardless of his own merits or efforts" and "Nothing ever comes to one that is worth having, except as a result of hard work." As long as the black civil rights movement followed Booker T. Washington’s model of self-improvement and merit, real progress was possible. This was to be done without creating an oppressive big-government overload interfering with the daily activity of Americans.

Since, the rise of the modern civil rights movement, Booker T. Washington’s plan of self-improvement has been abandoned and replaced by black leader W. E. B. DuBois’ Marxist theory. Socialism, redefined the civil rights struggle to embrace the concept of struggle between the oppressed and the oppressors. Listen to the language of Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson and you will hear this socialist-communist mantra in each speech.

Socialism infiltrated America’s colleges, universities, and institutions of higher learning in the 1920’s and was incorporated into President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal in the 1930’s. Then in the mid 1960’s Lyndon Johnson’s "Great Society" established the American Welfare State.

Early in the history of the U.S.A. President James Madison noted attempts to expand government’s role to include welfare. He stated, "If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare…they may assume the provision of the poor…were the power of congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature of the limited government established by the people of America."

Mrs. Star Parker, noted African American author and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education in her book "Uncle Sam’s Plantation" wrote "A benevolent Uncle Sam welcomed mostly poor black Americans onto the government plantation…instead of solving economic problems, government welfare socialism created monstrous moral and spiritual problems…the legacy of American socialism is our blighted inner cities, dysfunctional inner city schools, and broken black families."

The NAACP in partnership with the big government "American Welfare State" has failed many young black men like Dontravius Thomas who is accused of attempted robbery and the murder of Lt. Rouse. Big government has promoted and allowed reckless human pro-creation in the form of excessive welfare to allow and support massive numbers of illegitimate births by unwed young mothers. The result of this failure has produced an abundance of crime by young Americans in cities and towns nationwide.

The NAACP has devoted far too much time, energy, and money to such activities as boycotting the Confederate flag and far too little in addressing black teenage pregnancy, educational failure, and crime.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is also a major contributor to the destruction of family values. This organization and their accomplice- the U.S. Supreme Court expelled God and the Bible from America’s schools in the 1960’s. America is reaping the harvest of the bad seed it has sown.

The death of Lt. Rouse and the destruction of the life of a young man that might have been a productive citizen is a double tragedy. Regardless, this horrific crime is inexcusable and punishment should fit the crime.
