The Latest

          We win!  You may not think so, but the progressives have really messed up this time.  They have gotten the health care bill passed which is the first step in making us completely dependent upon them.  If they are successful in their agenda, we will have nothing left.  Therefore, the only ones left that have money, or anything else of value, will be the political class.  Since their plan is for the rich to be taxed to pay for everything and they will be the only ones left to tax, they will have to pay for our healthcare and everything else.  I guess they really haven’t thought that far ahead.  “The trouble with socialism is you run out of other people’s money to spend.”[1]  We needed change but the Obama administration was not the answer. They moved us in the direction we were headed, not the direction in which we needed to go.  Our government has been out of control for a long time.  

          I have come to the conclusion that I can no longer refer to the progressives as bastards.[2]  I have realized that it is wrong to besmirch the reputations of their parents, whom I am sure are ashamed of them.  These people don’t recognize the authority of the principles under which this nation was founded.  From what I have seen in their efforts to get the health care legislation passed, they have no principles.  

           We have a Star Spangled republic, not a muddy swamp of socialism.   The progressives think we have a democracy.  Democracy.. while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy.  Remember, democracy never lasts long.  It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself.  There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.”[3]  A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.”[4]   This is why we were set up as a republic by the founding fathers who knew the difference.  Our founding fathers knew exactly why they were setting up our republic based on Christian principals. 

           Patrick Henry said that this country was not founded by religionists but by Christians, not on religions but on the gospel of Jesus Christ.  John Jay, the first chief justice of this nation said that this is a Christian nation.  In 1892, the Supreme Court[5] announced that this is a Christian nation.  This was after a review of thousands of founding documents, both federal and from the various states.  Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.”[6] 

          I could go on and on with quote after quote from those who matter, establishing beyond any reasonable doubt that this is truly a Christian nation.  What is in question now is how long it will remain so.  The separation of church and state is found in the constitution of the extinct USSR – article 52; not in the United States constitution.  Eleven years after the signing of the constitution Thomas Jefferson used that phrase to assure a church group that the government cannot interfere with our religious expression.  Things sure have gotten twisted around.  The government was against Jesus during His earthly lifetime.  The same kinds of people are against Him and His followers now. 

          ‘Social Justice’ to the progressive doesn’t mean helping the poor.  Their definition is the “Forced redistribution of wealth with hostility towards individual property, under the guise of charity and/or justice.”[7]  Moral issues mean different things to progressives because their morals are different than most of us.  Their morals are not centered in God but rather a humanist view of right and wrong.  The progressive attempt to eliminate God from our lives is the plan to get our moral and religious values replaced by theirs.  “There are 2500 verses in the King James Bible about poor people.  One time in seminary we cut out of the Bible every reference to poor people, every single one; it took us a long, long time, when we were done that Bible was in shreds. It was falling apart; it was literally in holes….a Bible full of holes.  I would take it out and say brothers and sisters this is the American Bible, it’s full of holes.”[8]   It is my opinion that it is Rev. Jim Wallace’s theology that is full of holes.  The Bible says that many will come in the name of Jesus and attempt to deceive us.   I think that Jeremiah Wright and Jim Wallace are prime examples of deceivers.  Jesus taught voluntary giving, not forced giving.  When a government takes something from one group, to give to another, it’s not charity, its theft.  Forced redistribution is not the same as charitable giving.  When the government takes over charities the people loose control over where the resources are distributed.  A man’s best friend is his dogma, and their dogma is going to bite us in the butt.  No where in the Bible does it call for the government to take care of the poor, rather it calls for Christians to help the poor.  Jesus said that the poor would always be with us.  I guess that means that charity toward those in need is an ongoing request of the Lord.

          Violence, intimidation, personal attacks, slurs and bomb throwing are not the answer.  These are the things that the enemy wants to goad us into doing.  We should not stoop to their tactics.  Glenn Beck says that ‘the progressives are trying to prod us into violence’.  If they can get us to act like they did in the sixties, they will have succeeded.  Americans are a decent, moral and religious people.  I think that it will be hard for them to accomplish this goal; however, there are always those radicals in every group to say nothing of their planting people among us who will do outrageous things to forward their agenda.   We have the strongest weapon in our vote.  I get sick and tired of those who say ‘you can’t blame me, I didn’t vote’.  Yes I can; you neglected your responsibility as a citizen. “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”[9]2010 is not just a choice between Republicans and Democrats. 2010 is not just a choice between liberals and conservatives. 2010 is a referendum on the very identity of our nation.”[10]

          The thing to keep in mind is what would Jesus do?  Hitler said that if you say something often enough and loud enough, the people will believe it.  We are surrounded by lies, deception and slight of hand. The Bible and the founding documents are often misquoted or misrepresented by the deceivers.   I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.”[11]  Study history and the Bible to see the truth and overcome what is being fed to us.

Why Do I Rant?

            I have been told that my ranting's are too religious and political.  OK!  And your point is?  I write these things as a voice crying in the wilderness about that which I am most concerned.  My greatest concerns are the attacks upon our Christian nation and even our Christianity are under from the anti God folks and those would destroy our nation.  I understand that the Bible says that these bums will appear to win, at least for a while.  This same Bible also describes the final outcome for these folks.

           What is a sin?  A sin is anything that separates you from God.  It is a testament to the stubbornness of man that the experts estimate that only twenty percent of people will be saved in the end.  It’s not that God doesn’t want to save you but rather your holier than Him attitude.  The same attitude Lucifer had that got him expelled from heaven.  As I have stated before, there is no cure for stupid.

           The Lord, Jesus, ‘The Christ’, revealed Himself to me in 1967.  The Holy Spirit revealed Himself to me in 1978.  Perhaps one day I will reveal the circumstances of these two events.  Suffice it to say, once the truth has been revealed to you, there is no turning to past thought processes.  Sometimes I get quirked over silly things.  When people say that they found the Lord or they found the Holy Spirit when they were there beside them all the while, I have to wonder.  He knew you from the moment of your conception. "I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb.”[1]   Just one more instance of man taking credit for an act of God.  The Bible says that the rocks will cry out to proclaim the lordship of Jesus and, the Lord will reveal Himself to anyone who diligently seeks Him.    

          The American people wanted change; however, President Obama’s change is turning out to be loose change.  Loose change in this instance is by definition the same as loose cannon.  How is the hope and change thing working out for you?  We were obviously lied to during the election process.  We are continually lied to and mislead by both sides of the isle.   The question is what are we going to do about it now?  You can deny that you were duped, claim that this is what you really wanted, stick your head back in the sand, or recognize what is really going on.  We must realize that we are not just one vote but rather we are “We the People”.  “United we stand, divided we fall”[2].  This counteracts the opposition movement to divide and rule. 

          Saul Alinsky was, in my opinion, one of the most dangerous men in American history.  He has been referred to as he father of the modern progressive movement.  Saul Alinsky, on the dedication page of his book ‘Rules for Radicals’, stated that he dedicated the book to Lucifer, the first one who rebelled against the establishment and won his own kingdom.  “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.  It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule.  Also, it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.”[3]  “Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals is the last book written by community organizer Saul D. Alinsky before his death in 1972. Published in 1971, it was Alinsky's attempt to impart his theory and methods of organizing to the current generation of young activists, largely drawing upon his own experiences.”[4]  

          In an article in the New York Times Mr. Alinsky is quoted – “Don’t worry if they call you names:  The job of the organizer is to maneuver and bait the establishment so that it will publicly attack him as a “dangerous enemy.” ... Here again we find that it is power and fear that are essential to the development of faith. This need is met by the establishment’s use of the brand “dangerous,” for in that one word the establishment reveals its fear of the organizer, its fear that he represents a threat to its omnipotence. Now the organizer has his “birth certificate” and can begin.  The first step:  The organizer dedicated to changing the life of a particular community must first rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression. He must search out controversy and issues, rather than avoid them, for unless there is controversy people are not concerned enough to act. “[5]   “Saul Alinsky, the Chicago activist and writer whose street-smart tactics influenced generations of community organizers, most famously the current president, could not have been more clear about which side he was on. In his 1971 text, “Rules for Radicals,”…”[6] Mr. Alinsky, who died in 1972, explains his purpose: “What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be. ‘The Prince’ was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. ‘Rules for Radicals’ is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away.” [7]

          Several prominent national leaders have been influenced by Alinsky's teachings, including Barack Obama, Wade Rathke and Hillary Clinton.  Hillary Clinton's senior honors thesis, written at Wellesley College,  was on Saul Alinsky.  Wade Rathke is the co-founder of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) and Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 100.  Andy Stern, the present President of the SEIU, said that if he can’t get his way using the power of persuasion, he will use the persuasion of power.  Alinsky is often credited with laying the foundation for the grassroots political organizing that dominated the 1960s.  Jack Newfield writing in the New York Magazine included Alinsky among "the purest avatars of the [populist] movement," along with Ralph Nader, Cesar Chavez, and Jessie Jackson.

          “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.”[8]   “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any nation.”[9] 

          As you may have noted, I labeled Alinsky as dangerous.  I did this because I really do feel that he and his followers are truly trying to take away all that we hold dear and sacred.  Our founding documents seem to mean nothing to them.  Our faith means nothing to them.  Our country, and all it stands for, means nothing to them.  What they have failed to realize is that the American people are beginning to awaken to their agendas.  They do not, as we do, love our country, our God and our families.  What they are starting to see is that the American people are a fiercely independent and resilient people.  It is my belief that we will eventually regain our country, our freedoms and our rights.  My sincere hope is that we will not have to suffer too much at their hands before our recovery.  Our founding fathers paid a very high price in starting this nation.  I hope that we are willing to sacrifice as much to reestablish what they gave to us.  I have included some web pages below so that you can find the ammunition you need to further our cause.
