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.
