WARRING AGAINST SIN OR STRIVING FOR CHRISTIANITY? — PART 3

elephantgop.pngIn Part 2 of this series, we considered the consequences of not fearing God. Until we learn to fear God, we risk living in a bit of Hell. In this post, we will consider our electoral choices.

To Fear God

As if we could be gods, we too often find ourselves seeking to shape the world to suit our own desires. When Adolf Hitler‘s Propaganda Minister in Nazi Germany attempted to help Hitler bend the world to his will, here is how he explained to himself.

What does Christianity mean today? National Socialism is a religion. All we lack is a religious genius capable of uprooting outmoded religious practices and putting new ones in their place. We lack traditions and ritual. One day soon National Socialism will be the religion of all Germans. My Party is my church, and I believe I serve the Lord best if I do his will, and liberate my oppressed people from the fetters of slavery. That is my gospel. —Paul Joseph Goebbels (29 October 1897 – 1 May 1945) (Diary entry for October 16, 1928; from here)

How did Goebbels “new” religion work out? He discovered the same fate that all who put their trust in a man have found.

Psalm 146:3-4 Good News Translation (GNT)

Don’t put your trust in human leaders;
no human being can save you.
When they die, they return to the dust;
on that day all their plans come to an end.

After Hitler killed himself, “Goebbels along with his wife Magda killed their six young children, and then committed suicide” (from here). Fortunately, there is an alternative.

Psalm 118:5-9 English Standard Version (ESV)

Out of my distress I called on the Lord;
the Lord answered me and set me free.
The Lord is on my side; I will not fear.
What can man do to me?
The Lord is on my side as my helper;
I shall look in triumph on those who hate me.

It is better to take refuge in the Lord
than to trust in man.
It is better to take refuge in the Lord
than to trust in princes.

Instead of seeking leaders who insist upon transforming us to their liking, we need leaders with more modest ambitions. We need leaders who respect our right to make our own choices. Instead of ambitious men who can only pose as being powerful, we need to rely upon the reality of an Almighty God.

Which Candidates Have Modest Objectives In This Election?

On Tuesday, November 5, 2013, we will have a choice. Here are the candidates I will vote for.

Why these candidates?

  • Are Democrats evil Nazis? No. Democrats are not Nazis, but they are Socialists. Moreover, this generation of Democrats lies without shame, and they unconstitutionally grab for power. When we know our constitutional republic will work just fine if we allow it to do so, why would we even want to start a journey down a road that can only lead to tyranny?
  • The gentlemen I support are Republicans, but they are not part of The Establishment (see WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO CHALLENGE THE ESTABLISHMENT — PART 1). Because each strongly defends our Constitution, those benefiting from the status quo (Big Government spending and regulation) consider them a threat. If you are a greedy beneficiary of Big Government, the last thing you want is a restoral of constitutional government. However, the average citizen would do far better with lower taxes and less government regulation.

The Distinguishing Issues?

What are the main issues in this election? The depends upon whether or not you are a low information voter.  Consider the ad on the right. To the Democrats, the main issues are: abortion, the environment, and “gay rights.” anti Cuccinelli adSupposedly, with respect to these issues, Cuccinelli and his fellow Republicans are monsters, but that’s nonsense.

Anti-Choice?

Since we addressed this issue in HAVE YOU CONSIDERED HOW PATHETIC WE HAVE BECOME?, I see little reason for going over it again. If you need further reassurance, check out Women Sick of Stupid Lies.

Anti-Environment?

We have an ongoing debate in this nation. Is Global Warming real? What proof exists that it is? We have repeated assertions that Global Warming is real, but we have no proof. That’s propaganda (see BEFORE YOU VOTE, INVESTIGATE), not proof. Meanwhile, In tight Virginia governor’s race, McAuliffe backs Obama’s new coal regs. What does that mean for us?

The regulations would limit the amount of carbon that new gas- and coal-firing electric power plants can put into the air, which would make opening one almost financially impossible.

Republican nominee Ken Cuccinelli swiftly characterized his opponent’s position as a show of support for the Obama administration’s so-called “war on coal.”

“The war on coal in Virginia is a war on our poor,” he said Saturday night at a fundraiser he and Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz attended for the nonprofit Family Foundation, the state’s best-known lobby for socially conservative legislation. (from here)

Cuccinelli states his position in Cuccinelli Statement On McAuliffe-Obama War On Coal.

Anti-LGBT?

Here is what Cuccinelli has on his facebook site.

I have always been a supporter of Virginia’s Marriage Amendment. You will never have to guess where I stand on defending it. (from here)

Is that position anti-LGBT or pro-children? Is marriage about protecting the right of each child to a mother and a father, or is marriage about approving a relationship between two sex-crazed adults who can’t figure out which end is which? Does government exist to protect the rights of the innocent, or does government exist to force people to sanction an unhealthy “lifestyle” choice?

If two people of the same sex want to have sex, that is their business. They have NO RIGHT to force their stubborn stupidity on everyone else.

Have You Heard About Obamacare?

What do we have in Washington D.C. right now? Don’t we have a bunch of undisciplined leaders who cannot resist the urge to spend other people’s money? Look at Obamacare. The Obama administration cannot even get a website to work, but they insist upon running (ruining really) everyone’s healthcare? Why would we want them to do that?

Cuccinelli fought Obamacare Day 1.

Indeed, Mr. Cuccinelli was the first attorney general in the country to sue over the law after it was passed in March 2010, and has gone all in recently on highlighting the botched roll-out and issues with healthcare.gov as a key difference between he and Democrat Terry McAuliffe.

“This is a referendum on Obamacare, and to help us clarify that point, the president is coming tomorrow,” he told a crowd outside of a GOP office in Prince William, drawing scattered boos. (from here)

On the other hand, McAuliffe is gung-ho for Big Government.

Under the new law, the federal government would pick up 100 percent of the cost of expanding health care for poor people and the disabled until 2016. Then Virginia would be required to pay for 10 percent of the program. But what happens after that? Cuccinelli says he doesn’t want to find out.

Democrat Terry McAuliffe says it would be irresponsible not to take advantage of the money, which will be taken from Virginia taxpayers whether the commonwealth participates or not.

“We are going to bring back to Virginia over the course of the next seven years, $21 billion of our money that we are paying in,” he says. (from here)

Why doesn’t Cuccinelli want to find out? Consider what we are already spending.  Cantor says states are spending more on Medicaid than on public schools.

What About School Choice?

Cuccinelli’s Education Plan includes strong provisions for school choice in section 9.

Enact Parent Empowerment And Choice Act Legislation For Parents In Failing Schools

This legislation provides a bottom-up solution instead of a top-down fix to authorize a majority of parents of students attending a public elementary or secondary school that has been determined by the Virginia Board of Education to be a failing school to petition to have one of four reform options:

  • Closure: Allow students to attend better performing public schools.
  • Restart: Convert to a charter school.
  • Reform: Replace leadership at the school and provide flexibility for reforms or change.
  • School Choice: provide opportunity scholarships to allow parents to enroll students in the public schools of their choice, or tax credits to enroll in the private schools of their choice.

In addition, in section 12 of his Education Plan Cuccinelli advocates constitutional amendments that would allow school choice to take off in Virginia. Can you imagine Democrats supporting school choice? In an era when the government threatens to stifle freedom in our country, we must elect people willing to push back or suffer the loss of our freedom. Please vote for advocates for limited, constitutional government.
