That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." --Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

America's fatal attraction

I hope I don't get in trouble for reprinting this, but EVERYONE needs to read it. While I can take or leave Rush Limbaugh, I am a HUGE fan of his brother David and you will see why. I don't like to put blogs in that are this long normally, but this HAS to be re-printed in it's entirety. I have italicised some parts that I find interesting. Please take the time to read the whole thing, then drop me an e-mail and tell me what you think.

America's Fatal Attraction
By David Limbaugh

Tuesday, 16 June 2009
Excuse my mastery of the obvious, but I have to believe the greatest obstacle to America's return to policy sanity is the electorate's cultish adoration of Barack Obama.

If it weren't for this disturbing phenomenon -- not to discount a healthy dose of blind partisanship -- it is inconceivable that the majority of people would tolerate Obama's dismantling of America's free market system, his returning America to a pre-9/11 mindset against terrorists, his increasing usurpations of power, and his corrupt ties and practices, from the public funding of ACORN to the summary dismissal of the case against the Black Panthers to his firing of inspector general Gerald Walpin apparently for uncovering corruption by Obama's friends.

I don't quite understand how people, especially religious people, can place their trust for salvation in a fellow mortal, but history shows they do, and present-day America shows they are. From MSNBC's Chris Matthews' admitting Obama sends a thrill up his leg to audience members' fainting at his speeches to young girls' kissing his statue like brainless bookends, the trend continues unabated.

Even some not entranced by his supposed charisma are indirectly affected by it, evidenced by their unbounded willingness to give him the benefit of every doubt. They are impervious to his narcissism, indifferent to his megalomaniacal pursuit of power, ceaselessly forgiving of his childish scapegoating of the previous administration, and oblivious to his extremism.

The mainstream media are his biggest institutional enablers, drooling over his every utterance, irrespective of his many contradictions, his assaults on the Constitution and our liberties, and his spate of broken promises.

"So what?" you say. "The MSM are ends-justify-the-means liberals who believe exactly as he does. Of course they ignore his unprecedented expansions of government, his deceit in furtherance of accomplishing a radical liberal agenda of which they approve, his opportunistic breaches of promises, and his nose thumbing at the Constitution."

True, but there's more to it than that. The media's fixation with Obama transcends their shared ideology, and I'm not just referring to Evan Thomas' deification of Obama. Did you see the CNSNews.com interview of Chris Matthews (sorry to bring him up again)? I knew he was a Kool-Aid drinker, but this was embarrassing.

When the correspondent asked Matthews whether Obama still sends a thrill up his leg, he replied: "I have a feeling about my country. When he talked about it, I was inspired."

Then came the scary part. Asked whether the press should give Obama more scrutiny, he said: "I think we have to question the numbers . the amount of money that's been printed and the size of the deficits and the addition to the debt, and that's pretty scary. These are huge numbers. We're going to have a debt by the end of the first term that's equal to our entire economy. Think about that. That has to be paid off . (with) tremendous costs to the taxpayer. . It's scary."

The long quote is helpful to illustrate that Matthews fully appreciates -- intellectually -- the danger to America's solvency that Obama's policies represent. Despite that, he added this non sequitur: "I love my country, and he talks about my country . in a way that inspires me, and he thrilled me. I'm very proud of that. . I mean it. . I hope it continues."

So Matthews is scared that Obama is spending the country he says he loves into bankruptcy but hopes he keeps talking in a way that inspires him. Can this be explained rationally?

Of course not. But that's the point. Cultish attraction destroys logic, reason and sound judgment.
Nor can rational thought explain the serial applauses from Obama's American Medical Association audience as he told them he is going to place the square peg of socialized medicine into the round hole of improving quality and decreasing costs -- all without diminishing patient choice or physician authority.

Then consider the American Jewish community, which still overwhelmingly supports Obama despite his egregious displays of disrespect toward Israel, its history, its moral position and its fundamental right to national defense. And there are large segments of the Christian community -- Catholic and evangelical -- that either lie to themselves about Obama's depraved, militant position in supporting even partial-birth abortion or compartmentalize it into artificial irrelevance.

And how about rank-and-file Democrats who consider themselves fiscally conservative? Partisan loyalties notwithstanding, how can they sit by idly as they watch Obama's spending horror show unfold? How can they delude themselves into believing this obscene and insane spending -- guaranteed to financially, and maybe politically, enslave our children -- can ever be justified?

At some point, the spell will dissipate. The question is whether that will happen in time to prevent irreversible damage to this nation.

You gotta be kidding...

Newsweek editor Evan Thomas brought adulation over President Obama’s Cairo speech to a whole new level on Friday, declaring on MSNBC: "I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God."

Sadly, there are many, that feel the same way. The way Bammer talks, he may even be convinced of it himself.

I guess they're NOT kidding...

Re-run...hope you don't mind...

I had a talk with a very dear brother in Christ today. He was telling me that he had a conversation with someone in our church who voted for 'Bama and thought that my blog was hateful.

Please allow me to clarify that I do not hate our President or even Liberals in general. I have no respect for their positions, but I do not hate them. In many ways I feel especially sorry for the Christians who thought they were doing the right thing by voting for him. I would have hoped that they would have known better, but this guy is a smooth talker and on the surface, he seems to say the right things. It's when you watch what he does and find out what his true beliefs are that you can see him for who he really is...a charlatan.

I have decided to re-run a blog from last November that attempts to explain why it is difficult for me to see how someone can support Bamster and his Liberal agenda and still call yourself a follower of Christ.

Thoughts about Christianity and Liberalism....

Isn't this what you've always wanted?
Isn't this how you've saw the view?
Careful what you wish for,It just might come true.
Isn't this what you've always pictured?
Isn't this what you plan to do?
Careful what you wish for,
It just might come true...

I've had a few of those moments in my life. What I wished for came around and knocked me flat.

I would like to address an issue that seems to be very prevalent at the moment. Is it possible for a Christian to be a Democrat? My answer would be, that, I suppose so, but my question would be WHY???? If we are truly to be an image of Jesus, why would we have the thought process of a Liberal? They have many issues that clearly undermine the values that Jesus teaches, but here are my 'Big Three."

Unfortunately, in my opinion, they have gotten sucked into the dangerous vortex of "compassionate politics." They genuinely have compassion for the down and out, and the have nots. Jesus did too. Where in the scriptures does it say that it is the government's duty to provide for the poor and needy? (hint: nowhere...) Who's job is it? The church...the band of believers that Christ put together to show the world His love. If that's the case, how did the government get involved to begin with? The church dropped the ball and somebody saw the opportunity to gain some political clout and power by pretending to be the caregiver of the poor and downtrodden. The only way for the government to have anything to give, is to take it forcibly from someone else who has earned it. Do the math, there are far more people who are not rich than those that are. You don't need to be rich to vote, so if you want to stay in power, pander to those who will keep you there! Promise them anything and give them just enough to give them hope, but not enough to change their situation and they will keep you in power. It's not about compassion at all...it's about power. Charles Barkley said that "for 50 years poor people have been voting Democrat and they are still poor." If the Dems actually brought people out of poverty, that would eliminate their voting base.

What about the issue of abortion? How can any thinking, caring, Christ-centered person possibly believe that Jesus would ever condone tearing a child out of his mothers womb and grinding them up in a garbage disposal? Is that really what He would want? I am certainly all about a mother's right to choose. There are choices available; Adoption, raising the child, and the biggest choice of all CHOOSE NOT TO HAVE SEX UNTIL YOU ARE MARRIED!!! I can't picture Jesus telling anyone that one of the choices would be to kill the baby.

How about the so-called "gay rights" issues? Gay rights? The Word is VERY clear on this issue, not once, but MANY times. You have people like Jay Bakker espousing the belief that it was all metaphorical, and that that's not REALLY what the Bible means. I have friends and relatives who are caught up in this lifestyle and I love them anyway, but make no mistake when I say that they should not be legislated any 'special' rights. God's word is clear that he designed sex to be expressed between a man and woman who are joined together in marriage.

As I stated above, there are many issues that the Liberals espouse; bigger government, higher taxes, weaker defense, soft on crime, radical environmentalism, free everything for everybody, etc,etc... but for these three alone, I cannot understand why any Christ-centered person would embrace the Democratic party. I'm not saying that the Republicans have all of the answers either. In fact they have been a huge disappointment over the last few years as they have drifted away from the core values of less government, lower taxes, and fewer hand-outs. That's why I choose to call myself a Follower of Christ first and then a Conservative. Has a nice ring to it doesn't it?
