WHY IT IS TIME TO SET ASIDE OUR APATHY AND DISGUST AND VOTE!

  1. voteOur national debt is approaching 18 trillion and we have over $127 trillion in unfunded liabilities.
  2. Supposedly, with growth at 3.5 percent, our economy is zooming, but much that growth is due to the reduction of oil and gas prices.  That reduction is due to new technology that Obama just finally got around to supporting. Meanwhile, in the name of about Global Warming (never shown to exist) , Obama and the Democrats continue warring against coal.
  3. The news on “immigration reform” is that we can expect President Obama to issue another one of his unconstitutional executive orders.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called on President Obama to issue a “bold” executive order that would stop the deportation of millions of illegal immigrants, including farm workers, families of people allowed to remain in the country under the administration’s “Dream Act” policy, and many others. (continued here)

    Why do the Democrats want all those illegal immigrants?  Well, now we have question. Could non-citizens decide the November election? With enough “non-citizens,” in the next election that question could go away. 80 percent of non-citizens vote Democrat.

  4. With respect to the Ebola virus our leaders have a schizophrenic policy. When they come from West Africa after treating people with Ebola we don’t quarantine civilian health care workers, but our military personnel? Well, here is our Dear Leader’s scientifically incomprehensible explanation

    Q    Are you concerned, sir, that there might be some confusion between the quarantine rules used by the military and used by health care workers and by some states?

    THE PRESIDENT:  Well, the military is a different situation, obviously, because they are, first of all, not treating patients. Second of all, they are not there voluntarily, it’s part of their mission that’s been assigned to them by their commanders and ultimately by me, the Commander-in-Chief.  So we don’t expect to have similar rules for our military as we do for civilians.  They are already, by definition, if they’re in the military, under more circumscribed conditions.

    When we have volunteers who are taking time out from their families, from their loved ones and so forth, to go over there because they have a very particular expertise to tackle a very difficult job, we want to make sure that when they come back that we are prudent, that we are making sure that they are not at risk themselves or at risk of spreading the disease, but we don’t want to do things that aren’t based on science and best practices.  Because if we do, then we’re just putting another barrier on somebody who’s already doing really important work on our behalf. And that’s not something that I think any of us should want to see happen. (from here)

  5. The Obama administration has the situation in Iraq and Syria under similarly scientific control, Foreign jihadists flocking to Iraq and Syria on ‘unprecedented scale’ – UN.
  6. In spite of (or because of?) Obamacare, our health care costs are rising faster than our wages. And those rising health care costs hit low income workers harder.
  7. And so forth.

In this coming election, we have the need to throw the bums out more than we have had in decades. The people we have in charge right now don’t even bother to concern themselves with the Constitution. Instead of serving us, they think their job is to deliver the goods (our goods) to their campaign donors.

So what should we do? We should vote Republican.

Of course, many will complain there is very little difference between Republicans and Democrats, but that is not entirely true. If we check their voting records, we will find that even RINOs don’t vote exactly like Liberal Democrats. Republican did not vote for Obamacare, for example. Nevertheless, we cannot count on power-hungry RINOs to repeal awful legislation like Obamacare or to cut taxes and spending. Therefore, we must plan ahead.

Why aren’t Republicans and Democrats more concerned about running our country properly? That is our fault. Too many of us don’t participate in either the Republican Party’s or the Democratic Party’s nomination process. Instead, we let special interests fund the candidates they want and get them nominated. And surprise!  Surprise! What the special interests want are crooked politicians.

Therefore, on the day after Election Day, November 5, 2014, we need to do three things.

  1. If the guy we voted for is a RINO, we need to send him a polite note. We need to congratulate him on his victory, and we need to explain just exactly why we voted for him. If he starts do something else, like trying to pass an amnesty bill for illegal immigrants, we must make it clear we will work to get rid of him in the next election.
  2. We need to start participating in the nomination process. Until we start nominating Republicans who are serious about limited government, we are going to get RINOs who are only just a little bit less crazy than Democrats about taxing and spending.
  3. We need to pray. Whatever God’s Will for the future may be, we need to be doing what He would have us do.

OVERCOMING VOTER FRAUD

Citizen Tom:

In the comment trail on http://citizentom.com/2014/10/19/erring-on-the-side-of-caution/, we somehow wandered off onto the subject of voter fraud. Since we have an election coming up soon, the subject is certainly appropriate. Therefore, I thought this would be a good post to reblog.

Originally posted on Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance:

Is it a secret that our government controls trillions of dollars in spending and revenue collections? Don’t our elected officials authorize innumerable costly laws and regulations that affect the success or failure of large enterprises? Do the rich donate large sums to candidates and political parties for naught? Don’t we know that some candidates lie about themselves and smear their opponents? Are all of us too honest to cheat? No? Then why would anyone be so silly as to believe that no one would try to steal an election?

Let’s consider some recent articles.

MOURNING THE WEAKENING OF THE FAMILY, THE FRACTURING OF COMMUNITIES, AND THE LOST OF DIVERSITY

family friends neighborsThe Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance‘s blog has run a series of posts on Heretics by G. K. Chesterton. When I was reading Chesterton’s work, I experienced something of a revelation I think worth sharing. In Chapter 12, Chesterton writes On Certain Modern Writers and the Institution of the Family. He asks us to think about the family as a small community.

The family may fairly be considered, one would think, an ultimate human institution. Every one would admit that it has been the main cell and central unit of almost all societies hitherto, except, indeed, such societies as that of Lacedaemon, which went in for “efficiency,” and has, therefore, perished, and left not a trace behind. Christianity, even enormous as was its revolution, did not alter this ancient and savage sanctity; it merely reversed it. It did not deny the trinity of father, mother, and child. It merely read it backwards, making it run child, mother, father. This it called, not the family, but the Holy Family, for many things are made holy by being turned upside down. But some sages of our own decadence have made a serious attack on the family. They have impugned it, as I think wrongly; and its defenders have defended it, and defended it wrongly. The common defence of the family is that, amid the stress and fickleness of life, it is peaceful, pleasant, and at one. But there is another defence of the family which is possible, and to me evident; this defence is that the family is not peaceful and not pleasant and not at one.

It is not fashionable to say much nowadays of the advantages of the small community. We are told that we must go in for large empires and large ideas. There is one advantage, however, in the small state, the city, or the village, which only the wilfully blind can overlook. The man who lives in a small community lives in a much larger world. He knows much more of the fierce varieties and uncompromising divergences of men. The reason is obvious. In a large community we can choose our companions. In a small community our companions are chosen for us. Thus in all extensive and highly civilized societies groups come into existence founded upon what is called sympathy, and shut out the real world more sharply than the gates of a monastery. There is nothing really narrow about the clan; the thing which is really narrow is the clique. The men of the clan live together because they all wear the same tartan or are all descended from the same sacred cow; but in their souls, by the divine luck of things, there will always be more colours than in any tartan. But the men of the clique live together because they have the same kind of soul, and their narrowness is a narrowness of spiritual coherence and contentment, like that which exists in hell. A big society exists in order to form cliques. A big society is a society for the promotion of narrowness. It is a machinery for the purpose of guarding the solitary and sensitive individual from all experience of the bitter and bracing human compromises. It is, in the most literal sense of the words, a society for the prevention of Christian knowledge. (from here)

When we are born, we do not choose our family; our family does not choose us. Instead, we strive to be accepted, and those who love us do accept us — those who have truly learned how to love. Because love is what holds a family together, the family is where most of us learn how to love.  And contrary to what we have been taught, because the family is where we learn how to love, the family is where we learn how to appreciate our differences.

In the modern world, too many seek the death of the family and those small communities made up of families. To fully control us, our leaders need to divide us and pit us against against each other. So they encourage us to form what Chesterton called cliques, what we now call identity groups. Through the formation of identity groups we can be divided by race, sex, creed, age, wealth, disability, profession, hobbies, and so forth. Ironically, to sell us on the need for these divisive cliques, our leaders tell us this great lie: because diversity brings us all together, we must divide into a multitude of identity groups. In reality, such willful divisions can only tear us apart.

When we go to the polls on November 4, 2014, what can we do? How can we reverse this abominable trend? We can stop voting for it. With respect to issues important to strengthening the family and our local communities, we can determine where the candidates stand. Then we can vote for those candidates most supportive of families and small communities.

Do you know where the candidates stand? Would you like to know where to start your research?

ON THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN PAGANISM AND CHRISTIANITY

Citizen Tom:

The PRINCE WILLIAM & MANASSAS FAMILY ALLIANCE’s blog has a great series of posts based upon Heretics by G. K. Chesterton. This one, “ON THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN PAGANISM AND CHRISTIANITY,” is the latest, and it is well worth taking the time to read it.

King Solomon, Wise or Foolish Manipulation?

Citizen Tom:

Here scatterwisdom provides an excellent argument for term limits, and he is right. Term limits would help, but consider how he defines the issue.

“The reason being, especially in local politics, is that incumbent has an inherent power to influence hiring and government purchase contracts. The result is that unless an incumbent really screws up, he will always have thousands of assured votes “in the bag” over a new candidate because of voter support by the job or contract holders, and their relatives and friends, who benefit as a result of the incumbent influence.”

Actually, the Federal Government spends almost twice as much as state and local governments combined. Combined with all the tax laws and regulations they control, Federal office holders have an enormous capacity to buy our votes.

The Federal Government has powers far beyond what the Founder’s intended. Therfore, if we think our local government corrupt, the Federal Government should horrify us.

What would term limits accomplish? Term limits would limit an incumbent’s ability to buy our votes, but term limits cannot solve the basic problem. So long as we are willing to be bought, candidates for public office will buy our votes.

We, not the people we elect, have corrupted our government. Because we are to blame for the people we elect, if we want save our republic, we must first reform our own behavior.
