devilGubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe has put the following video up on his website (here). I don’t get it. Is he trying to condemn Cuccinelli or praise him?

Think about how divorced from reality one has to be to be a Socialist Democrat. Would it hurt to examine Cuccinelli’s positions or his motives? Apparently, it would. So McAuliffe just posts a reporter’s summary of where she thinks Cuccinelli stands; he wants us to presume Cuccinelli is a Tea Party extremist.

Because it is so hard to find anything that the Socialist Democrats have done right, they don’t defend their own records; they just attack their opponents as extreme, and then they act like that’s true. Yet any serious examination of American history would show the opposite is true.

Unfortunately, too often we let our leaders get away without debating the issues. We allow them to demonize their opponents. Consider a couple of examples.

Do you hate your country?

As outrageous as it may seem, when Conservatives complain about the growth of our government size and power, we often get this question (or accusation): Do you hate your country?

Even though I have heard it before, the sheer silliness of that question (or accusation):  floors me. When their opponents are in power, consider how much Socialist Democrats criticize the government. Why is it okay for Socialists to complain the government isn’t big enough, but not okay for Conservatives to complain that big government is both unethical and unworkable? Can’t we at least discuss the issues without the name-calling? Is the government our country, or does our country have a government, one we need to work properly?

Do you hate the poor, the elderly, and children?

When Social Conservatives point out the problems with welfare programs, we get called selfish. Instead of letting noble, kindhearted socialists spend our money for us, we just want to keep most of the money we earn and spend it ourselves. We think private charity works better.  Presumably, that means we hate the poor, the elderly, and children.

Instead of considering what might be wrong with redistributing the wealth, Social Democrats leap to an absurd conclusion: Social Conservatives are mean-spirited hypocrites. Nonetheless, our government now spends an outrageous sum on social programs, and our nation is going broke. At the same time Socialist Democrats and Fiscally Conservative RINOs condemn Social Conservatives for being concerned about social issues. Supposedly, the social issues are not important. If so, why do we spend so much money on them?

Somebody needs to learn how to think.

Dr. David Jeremiah is a great preacher of the Bible, and he is doing a series of broadcasts on The Priority of a Devoted Mind.  Here are the first several

Alternatively, you can listen at Jeremiah’s website (here).

The subject of the first couple of broadcasts is this verse.

Proverbs 23:7 New King James Version (NKJV)

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. “Eat and drink!” he says to you, But his heart is not with you.

The Bible speaks much about the mind and the importance of properly disciplining it. Our thoughts dominate our actions — whether we do good or evil. Consider that what we believe about each other controls how we treat each other. When we demonize and denigrate our enemies, we set ourselves above them. That sets the pretext for the next step. When we demonize and denigrate others, we give ourselves license either to destroy or enslave them.
