Social Justice

         Social justice is a catch phrase for the progressive movement.  What they mean by social justice is redistribution of wealth.  The true definition of social justice, as given in the Bible is, he who will not work should not eat and he who cannot work should be given help.  Guess whose wealth they want to redistribute?  Yours!  With 47% of our people paying no income tax and 20% getting back more than they pay in, isn’t this what is already taking place?  If you paid income tax last year, you paid for the 47% who didn’t.  A truly American sentiment recognizes the dignity of labor and the fact that honor lies in honest toil.”[1]Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.”[2]

               When you voted in the last election, did you vote for governmental ownership of the auto industry, the banking industry, the insurance industry, abandonment of long standing international commitments, or reduction of our nuclear status?  I know that I didn’t.  I do believe that the other side was headed in the same direction but would have done it slower.  A world without nuclear weapons would be less stable and more dangerous for all of us.”[3] I can’t find anywhere in the Constitution that the government should be involved in private business.  How dare any of our elected and appointed government officials as well as bureaucrats ignore the founding principles of our nation?  Shame on them!  Shame!  Shame!  Shame!  The main purpose of our federal government is to protect us from our enemies, both foreign and domestic.  At present we are snuggling up to our enemies and rejecting our historical friends, such as Israel.  The Lord, in reference to Israel said-“I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”[4]  Our president says; ”I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”[5] Our rights, given to us by God, have been being eroded away by several administrations.  Our domestic enemies seem to be in positions of power in the government.  The fox is in the hen house and is in the process of swallowing all of the chickens.

          I have said in the past that our most powerful weapon was the vote.  I have come to realize that I was wrong.  The most powerful weapon we have is prayer.  The most powerful thing we can do is pray.  "But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.”[6]   We still retain the right to vote them out of office.  Praying does not relieve us of our responsibility to vote. “You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it.”[7]

          Progressivism, Socialism, and Marxism, as far as I can determine, all basically have the same general philosophy.  They are all anti God, anti personal responsibility and support dependence on the state.  If the government is restricting our religious rights, they are treading on illegal ground.  There is no doubt that the United States was founded as a Christian nation, therefore any limitation placed on the practice of the Christian principals on which it was founded is treason. 

          “A nation will not long survive when it begins to think of its government, not as a watch dog to be fed, but a cow to be milked.”[8] “What we hear today is that the purpose of the government is benevolence.  Now that is a very pious word and it would seem that no one could speak against it and yet that is not the biblical teaching concerning government.  The Bible is filled with benevolence, but it is not state benevolence that is being spoken of, it is individual benevolence.  Since government has nothing of its own, if it is going to give something to somebody else it must first take it from another party and therefore it enters into the realm of plunder.  Socialism really is legalized plunder.”[9] Marx said “If you think you’ve misunderstood me that I want your private property, you haven’t misunderstood, that’s exactly what I want, I want the abolition of private property.”[10] Engles said “We want to sweep away everything that claims to be supernatural and superhuman…for that reason we have once and for all declared war on religion and religious ideas…”[11] On the other hand our founding fathers believed that “Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.”[12]

          The determination as to if one is a patriot or a revolutionary is determined by the observer.  Although Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Riley among others, are accused of being bigots, hate mongers and racists it is my opinion that they are patriots.  Put what they say to the test of truthfulness and determine for yourself.  Don’t swallow the pap you are being fed by the other side.  Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.”[13]

Who Are We?

          Nigger, spic, kike, honky, fag, wop, mick, wasp, kraut, jap, chink, gook, - let’s see, did I leave anyone out?  I wouldn’t want to offend anyone by omission.  I have known people who seem to hate everyone. “Prejudice is a distinction we make about people that God doesn’t make.”[1]  I can truly say that after having lived for sixty eight years, and having been exposed to this kind of hate and even worse, I truly don’t hate anybody.  Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight; Jesus loves the little children of the world.”[2]  If you, as I do, believe that the Bible is the word of the one true and living God, you would also know that we are all of one bloodline.  We are all the same family regardless of our differences.  Kind of gives you a different perspective on discrimination, doesn’t it?

          Since we are all basically the same, our only real differences are our ideas.  There are those that I disagree with and am disappointed with.  Those who tell lies and make statements and/or decisions which affect my life and that of my family, without knowing or caring what they are doing, anger me.  There are those that will stand for the Bible and our nation the way it was founded, and those that would tear down the nation and its relationship with God that most of us are so fond of.  Some people are too lazy to study so they are easily led.  “My people perish for lack of knowledge.”[3]  Our nation is in the process of perishing due to many peoples lack of knowledge concerning the founding of the country. Throughout history, there have been those, because of greed and hunger for power that seek to control the lives of others.   Our country has never been free of these people, which is why for so long they have been plotting in the background.  Only recently have they gained the powerful positions in such abundance.  I am content in the belief system I have.  I believe in God, family and country in that order. I am absolutely convinced that the Bible is true because it was written under the influence of the Holy Spirit.  Some people say it is not trustworthy because it was written by men.  These people seem to have no real concept of the Holy Spirit and if I remember correctly, Jesus was a man when He was here.

          Many people need to determine the basis of their unbelief.  Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.”[4]  The farther away we get from God, the worse off we are.  "If we ever forget that we're One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under."[5]  “’In God We Trust’ is our national motto. This is not some Christian, right wing, political slogan.  We adopted this motto because Christian men and women - on Christian principles - founded this nation, and this is clearly documented.”[6]

          When I was a child, I was taught that curse words were used by people who didn’t know how to properly express themselves.  Prejudicial words as far as I am concerned, are in the same category as curse words.  Although I still find myself falling into this category at times, it still offends my heart.  What I find truly offensive are those people who purposely and maliciously accuse someone of being a racist for political purposes.  This is a common tactic of the progressive movement.  ‘White boy’ was shouted by a protester during a speech by Michael Johns at a Tea Party meeting.  As far as I know, there has only been one person beaten up at a tea party meeting.  A black Tea Party attendee was attacked and beaten by SEIU[7] thugs using the ‘N’ word because he was handing out free flags.  “I have heard over and over again that the law abiding members of the Tea Party movement are racist and hate mongers.  The progressives have done everything they can to discredit this movement within the parameters of Saul Alinsky's ‘Rules for Radicals,’ by clothing health care reform "with moral garments."  If the Tea Party movement is racist then why can't the accusers provide audio or video substantiating this claim?”[8]

          If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, you have to act.  Arm yourself because that is what you will have to do spiritually; if you are on the side of truth, justice and the American way.  Put on the full armor of God.  Carry the sword of the Spirit in your heart.  Our best political weapon is the vote.  “The vote is the most powerful instrument ever devised by man

for breaking down injustice and destroying the terrible walls which imprison men because they are different from other men.”[9]  “Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote.”[10]  “If America is to survive, we must elect more God-centered men and women to public office, individuals who will seek divine guidance in the affairs of state.”[11]  This was the thinking of the founding fathers.

          Only if we are aware of whom we are, will we set foot in the right direction to restore this country to its rightful place in the world.  Study, doubt everything you hear or read until you have verified its truthfulness.  Once you are armed with the confidence of your convictions, get out there and vote.

          “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.[1]  I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.[2]   I was born in a free country and I will die in a free country, even if I have to die in my attempts to keep it free.  I had a man tell me that since 1950 we have lost forty percent of our freedoms.  I do not intend to pass on to my children and grandchildren a country less free than I was given. 

          The progressives have been with us since this country was founded; however, it wasn’t until recently that they seem to have gotten the upper hand.  They have tried to fundamentally change our country in the past but were thwarted in their efforts by right thinking Americans.  The thwarting in today’s political situation has just recently gotten started.   “A little rebellion now and a medicine necessary for the sound health of government.”[3]  If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”[4]  A step in this direction is being taken with the ‘Freedom of Information’ act, or whatever name they are using now.Advertisements contain the only truths to be relied on in a newspaper.”[5]  The ‘mainstream press’ is replete in their efforts to silence the opposition views by not reporting the real and complete news.  They look on us as sheep that need to be led.

          If you believe in your heart that there are those who know better how you should live your life, then you are the problem.   Our founding fathers knew how our country should be governed in order to be successful.  What has happened in the last two hundred years that we have lost track of our roots?  A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government.”[6]  Concentrated power has always been the enemy of liberty.”[7]   We managed to survive the Wilson administration, and we will survive the Obama administration.  If we can throw a monkey wrench into the progressive’s attempts, through our vote or refusing to go along with the things we know are unconstitutional, we must. 

          There is a difference between manly and macho.  A man knows who and what he is and that he doesn’t have to prove himself to anyone.  Macho is the act of trying to prove to yourself and/or the rest of the world that you are a man.  It therefore takes quite a bit to provoke a man to anger.  Those founded in the fundamentals of our country are usually manly.  You have to push them quite a way before they rise up to fight; such as in the ‘Tea party’ movement.  You can kill us, but you cannot defeat us.  The vitriol that has come from the progressives because of Americans standing up for their constitution is truly mind boggling.  When some one calls you a racist, bigot, homophobe or other politically sensitive and incendiary name, please answer in the following manner – ‘and this is coming from someone who crawled out of the scum pond of progressivism?’  These names are being used by the progressives against those in the tea party movement in an attempt to belittle the movement and to dismiss the movement as radical and unimportant.  The tea party movement is very close to how our country came into being. 

          The sour grapes folks are now in charge of the government.  Call it socialist, progressive or Marxist, they are the folks that lost the battle in the sixties.  Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence”.[8]  We know that many of our elected officials, regardless of party, are liars.  Of this, there is no doubt.  What is so embarrassing about it is the blatantness with which they lie; and how easily they are caught in their lies.  They don’t even apologize when they are proven to be lying.  Overseas we are looked on with distain because of our government’s forays into untruthfulness.  In the past, other nations respected and feared us, but today they laugh at us.  What freedoms we have left are in jeopardy if the world thinks we are weak. 

          In the past I have told you about Saul Alinsky.[9]  I stated that I thought that Alinsky was one of the most dangerous men in history.[10]  Now I introduce you to another conspirator in the progressive movement.  First proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and his wife Frances Fox Piven (today Piven is an honorary chair for the Democratic Socialists of America), the "Cloward-Piven Strategy" seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.”[11]  These are just examples of the people in the past that would fundamentally change the United States of America.  Our problem is that today, those in charge are disciples of these schools of thought.  Further information, on these people and others I will introduce you to in the future, is available all over the internet.
