This Messiah complex is getting scary

November 4, 2008

Charlie Rangel is ever the demagogue. But he is a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from the state of New York. He is one of many prime examples of what is wrong in our government. Listen to Charlie, it’s only 1 minute long, does he really believe, as he says, that Obama will “save the whole world”?

A Prayer for America on Election Day

November 4, 2008

al-mohlerToday my friend, Dr. R. Albert Mohler, President of the Southern Baptist Theologicalpr129280 Seminary, posted on his blog a very solid and insightful article entitled A Prayer for America on Election Day. Click on the link to read the entire post on his blog. Here are his main points:

1. We should pray that God will bless America with leaders better than we deserve.

2. We should pray that Americans will be motivated to fulfill the responsibilities of citizenship, yet also that we will be stripped of an unhealthy and idolatrous confidence in the power of government to save us.

3. We must pray that Americans will vote by conscience, not merely on the basis of celebrity or emotion.

4. We must pray that Americans will vote to defend the least among us — and especially those who have no vote.

5. We should pray that God will prick the conscience of the nation on issues of morality, righteousness, and respect for marriage as the central institution of human civilization.

6. We should pray that God will protect these candidates and their families.

7. We should pray that the election is conducted with honor, civility, respect and justice.

8. We must pray that Americans will be prepared to accept the results of the election with respect and kindness.

9. We should pray that this election would lead to even greater opportunities to preach the Gospel, and that the freedom of the church will be respected, honored, and protected.

10. We must pray for the church, praying that the church of the Lord Jesus Christ would be strengthened in the truth, grounded in the faith, and empowered for witness and ministry.

He closes with this: “May God bless American, not because this nation deserves to be blessed, but because He is a God of grace and mercy. Oh God . . . save us from ourselves.”

I hate to call anyone an idiot . . . but this woman qualifies!! God help us!!!! Remember our prayer must be the same as Habakkuk’s in the Old Testament when God’s judgment was coming . . . “Lord, in wrath, remember mercy.”

This is only 24 seconds long . . . you must watch it.

National Review makes a good case

The Choice
By the Editors

National Review

This election does not present Americans with a straight-up choice between conservatism and liberalism. This is not so much because John McCain is a moderate, although he is, as because liberals are likely to have effective majorities in both houses of Congress. Thus the choice we face is, in most respects, between a liberalism that is checked and one that is not.

We have reached this point because of the unpopularity of President Bush, the parlous state of the economy, and the enduring weakness of Republican positions on domestic policy. Senator McCain has done little to overcome these obstacles to his presidential hopes, and as a result he trails in the polls.

His opponent, Barack Obama, is a talented young politician who has shown both discipline and savvy in beating Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination. Given the initial odds against him, it is not quite right to say that he is untested. Yet his accomplishments, beyond propelling himself to the top of American politics, are few.

His views place him on the left edge of liberalism. The press has ruled that discussion of his extensive association with radicals is outside the bounds of polite society, although his history surely demonstrates at the very least that he has followed a policy of having no enemies to the left — and indicates that he probably shared more of their views than he now lets on.

The platform on which Obama is running is troubling enough. He advocates higher tax rates than any Democratic presidential candidate of the past 20 years has called for. He favors a health-care plan that would move millions of Americans from the private plans they prefer to a government system — and, in the long run, would reduce the quality and raise the cost of health care. He is more hostile to trade liberalization than any presidential nominee of either party within the last 70 years. He supports taxpayer funding of abortion. He seeks judges who “empathize” with liberal causes rather than feel themselves bound by the text of the Constitution. And with a stronger liberal base in Congress than any Democratic president has had in at least 40 years, he would have a good chance to get much of this domestic agenda accomplished.

His chief foreign-policy commitments have been to meet with America’s enemies — one could be forgiven for wondering whether he even thinks in terms of America’s having enemies — and to abandon Iraq. If he had prevailed on Iraq over the last three years, we would have lost a war that we now appear to be winning.

Luckily for the United States and Iraq, Senator McCain prevailed instead. He advocated the troop increase and strategic shift now known as the surge, first when other Republicans were denying the need for any change and then when they were rushing to quit the war. When President Bush came around on the need for the surge, McCain overlooked their past differences and became the policy’s most effective advocate. If we win in Iraq, McCain will deserve a good deal of the credit.

McCain has a solid record of opposing economically damaging tax increases. He has always opposed abortion. He has advanced a creative free-market health-care policy, even if he has not done much to defend it against Obama’s dishonest attacks. He is a scourge of wasteful spending and a resolute free trader. He says that he will look for judges who have demonstrated their fidelity to the Constitution as written. We have our differences with McCain, as do most conservatives, on such issues as immigration and stem cells. On each of these issues, however, Obama is at least as mistaken.

We have no doubt that if McCain is president we will find much to criticize. But we will be confident that we have the right commander-in-chief and that liberals do not have a free hand to remake our country. In this election we support Senator McCain and urge all conservatives to do so as well.

Abortion Still Matters–And this makes me sick!

October 30, 2008

Remember as you listen to this clip of Barack Obama speaking to Planned Parenthood, the biggest abortion provider in America, that his plans to “change this nation” includes the continued and expanded killing of babies. The “Freedom of Choice Act” is really the freedom to kill act. The culture of death is choking the culture of life which is encoded in our Constitution and Declaration of Independence not to mention the Bible.

Or if you think maybe this clip is “out of context” please feel free to listen to the entire speech.

Thomas Sowell on justice and the law

October 28, 2008

As usual Thomas Sowell has shown his intellectual strength as he examines the type of judges, and Supreme Court justices, will be named by each presidential candidate. In his most recent post at National Review Online he argues against the idea of the Constitution being a “living document.” In the article Judge This Sowell says:

The Constitution of the United States will not mean much if judges carry out Obama’s vision of the Constitution as “a living document”— that is, something that judges should feel free to change by “interpretation” to favor particular individuals, groups or causes.

That’s not “a living Constitution.” That’s a dying Constitution — and an Obama presidency can kill it off.

Read the whole article, it’s brief but very worthwhile. Click here to READ it.

In 1987 Dr. Sowell wrote a book entitled A Conflict of Visions: Ideological Origins of Political Struggles. The National Review Online is doing a series of interviews with Dr. Sowell on this book which is still as relevant today as it was then.
