"We the people" or "We the sheeple?" Which do you subscribe to?

Liberty from God or mandated by the government?

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves." Abraham Lincoln

The servants, small government, of "We the People" are now the masters of  "We the sheeple," who are now servants to big  government, a complete reversal from 1787. America has been transformed from a Republic into Socialism, aided and abetted by the "mainstream" liberal biased media, which has been successful in keeping FACTS and fair and balanced opinions from the sheeple along with the government-run secular schools and professors of "higher" education who have refused to teach the true American Christian birth and heritage of America.

"We the people" are a product of the Republic of limited government established by Founders who possessed Biblical moral virtue.

"We the sheeple" are a product (subjects) of big (more) government control intrusion (cradle-to-grave-nanny-state) being instituted and mandated by liberal secular judges. Mostly Democrats and deceived by a liberal biased mainstream media and by secular humanists government-run schools and "higher" education. (Suggest if you lack Biblical moral virtue and prefer liberty mandated by government and not "liberty from God," you are free to move to any Socialist country that will have you.).

The problem and the cause: Conservatives stop at the fact that America's Founders established our Republican form of limited government upon laws and boundaries while they forget that the underlying reason was derived from the Biblical moral virtue of America's Founders, as evident by how “Rights” were to be “entitled,” if they DID NOT violate “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.” (See America's Founding Document.)

The same can be said of preachers: While many can quote what Jesus said in John 3:16, how many can quote what He said in the same breath, up through verse 21? Because Preachers have preached "from their heart" they have neglected to preach what they were commissioned to preach, the Word of God, people no longer go to church, they go to their government.

"...because it is not the responsibility of the Christian or preacher to convict and convince. The Christian’s calling is to preach the Word of God, for the power of God follows the Word of God, not the preacher. Christ alone draws all men to Himself. (John 12:32)" Lessons of the Holy Spirit -  A Guide for Entering the Kingdom of God and Discover Why it Pleased God to Hide His Kingdom from the Wise

The Solution: Until citizens of the Kingdom of God begin to honor their commission to preach God's Word instead of their own, how can God cause an increase?

1 Corinthians 3:1-11 - And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men? For while one says, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal? Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that plants anything, neither he that waters; but God that gives the increase. Now he that plants and he that waters are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building. According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he builds thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

2 Timothy 4:1 - I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

That "time" is here, as obvious from Presidential candidate, Barack Obama. Until the foundation of Biblical moral value once again permeates the land, the decline into liberal secularism where government replaces God will continue to erode America's very existence. Election 2008 will determine much, however, American citizens who are also citizens of the Kingdom of God will determine much more.

"The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing.
If you can fake that, you've got it made."

Groucho Marx

The Obama strategy to minimize the impact of the FACTS being revealed about his socialism, clever, coy, and deceiving character, hid voting record, his past associations with terrorists and America haters, ACORN, etc. is to divert attention and attempt to redirect blame onto those who are revealing the FACTS, like what is being done to Joe the plumber, FOXnews, et. al. An example of this is how he joked about his socialist ploy by saying how he shared his sandwich in school. The sad part. the sheeple buy it, because the sheeple, being sheeple don't understand how Barack would have liked it if his teacher made him share.

With Barack Obama as President, and a Democrat controlled Congress the "new and improved" progressive Constitution will be politically corrected beginning with:

We the sheeple of the United States, in order to form a more perfect global union, establish political correctness, rely on government to provide a cradle-to-grave-nanny-state of entitlements for our tranquility, the common defense of the Democratic Party by the mainstream media, promote the Marxists philosophy of general welfare at the unjustified mandated expense of taxpayers, and secure the blessings of liberty as ruled by a despotic branch to the posterity of atheists and sinners, do disdain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America as a living document that provides for no responsibility, accountability, or commitment, whether personal or collectively.

A Declaration of Dependence. Ask not what you can do for your country, ask what your country can do for you.

(Distinguishing between Patriots and cowards, our favorite Founder, Samuel Adams, said: "Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say, 'What should be the reward of such sacrifices?' ... If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom...crouch down and lick the hands, which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!" PatriotPost.us)

Will you vote for a man whose past has exhibited an honorable character, or will you vote for a man whose past has been consistently associated with people of questionable and proven dishonorable characters, which in truth reveals his own questionable character? He might be a better orator, but do you agree with his liberal voting record?

He that has ear to hear, let him hear: Whether intentional or not, Democrats are intent on destroying the Republic for which it stands, One Nation under God, and create a secular socialist, Marxist, communist America?

You Thought You Owned Your 401(k) - By Conn Carroll (Click here for footnotes and story links.)

This week Argentina’s leftist president, Christina Kirchner, [1] announced she would move forward with her plan to seize the nation’s private pension funds. Kirchner claims government seizure of the funds is needed to protect Argentinians from the global market crisis. But most observers believe her real motive is to use the $30 billion in seized assets to ease the massive debt obligations her leftist spendthrift government has run up. The move is unprecedented even by Argentina’s past socialist standards. Leftist icon Juan Peron called the nationalization of private pensions “[2] theft” in a 1973 public address. But desperate times call for desperate measures. And Kirchner has eagerly pointed to [3] the unprecedented state interventions in the economy by the U.S. and Europe to help justify her policies. The proposed plan has already [4] sunk Argentina’s markets and sent the Peso to new lows.

But how does all this affect you? Enter liberal chairman of the House Committee on Education and Labor, Rep. George Miller (D-CA).

Earlier this month, Miller held a hearing on how the market crisis has hurt retirement savings plans. Miller wants to allow Americans to trade in their 401(k)s for guaranteed government bonds. Fair enough. So far he isn’t forcing anyone to do anything. But then Miller also added [5] this: “With respect to the 401(k), it appears to be a plan that is not really well-devised for the changes in the market. We’ve invested $80 billion into subsidizing this activity. … [W]e have to start to think about in Congress of whether or not we want to continue and invest that $80 billion for a policy that is not generating what we … say it should.” In other words, Miller believes government owns the money you put into your 401(k) every month, and that it is considered government “spending” when he lets you keep that money. As a result, Miller wants to eliminate $80 billion in tax-savings “rich” Americans receive by investing in their 401(k)s.

But you’re not rich, you say. Well, unfortunately, you don’t get to decide whether or not the IRS considers you rich. Congress and the White House do. And Barack Obama and Joe Biden have been steadily lowering the bar on the definition of who is rich and who isn’t. In July, Obama claimed those who made more than $250,000 a year are rich. [6] Then in an ad called “Defining Moment,” released earlier this month, that definition was lowered to those making more than $200,000 a year. Then in an interview last week, Biden lowered the bar even further, saying an Obama administration could only promise not to raise taxes on “[7] people making under $150,000 a year.”

Like his leftist ally in Argentina, Obama has a laundry list of new spending priorities that are guaranteed to drive up the federal debt. [8] Altogether, Obama is promising at least $4.3 trillion of increased spending and reduced tax revenue over the next 10 years. He’s going to need to take money from someone to make up that shortfall. As Kirchner showed, that someone is you.

"Change you can count on"

"Change you can count on" and "the real and lasting change" from Barack Obama will change America from a Republic into a mixture of Communism, Socialism, and Marxism. Have you been duped into becoming a sheeple?

A Perfect Storm by Thomas Sowell - Some elections are routine, some are important and some are historic. If Senator John McCain wins this election, it will probably go down in history as routine. But if Senator Barack Obama wins, it is more likely to be historic-- and catastrophic. Once the election is over, the glittering generalities of rhetoric and style will mean nothing. Everything will depend on performance in facing huge challenges, domestic and foreign. Performance is where Barack Obama has nothing to show for his political career, either in Illinois or in Washington. Policies that he proposes under the banner of "change" are almost all policies that have been tried repeatedly in other countries-- and failed repeatedly in other countries. Politicians telling businesses how to operate? That's been tried in countries around the world, especially during the second half of the 20th century. It has failed so often and so badly that even socialist and communist governments were freeing up their markets by the end of the century.

'The Truth About Obama: What Every American Needs to Know' "Millions of American voters still do not know what an ultra-left extremist Barack Hussein Obama is, but this free, factual, blockbuster new exposé from Human Events can fix that if enough people spread it around right up through Election Day next Tuesday," says John Finn of Los Angeles.

Who Groomed Barack Obama? New reports show that Barack Obama’s Harvard Law School experience was enabled by a group of black racists with connections to Saudi Islamists. What do they want from him now?

Obama Attacks Founding Fathers, Constitution - According to Obama if the Constitution "didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as its been interpreted and [the] Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties." The document, he argued, "Says what the states can't do to you, says what the Federal government can't do to you, but doesn't say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf." That remark shows a shocking ignorance of the purpose of the United States Constitution. Writing in National Review, Bill Whittle explained, "The entire purpose of the Constitution was to limit government." And that's the last thing Barack Obama, a devout worshiper at the shrine of Big Brother government, wants to do. It would stop him from taking your money and giving it to someone else.

Obama Desecrates the Great Seal of the United States Senator Obama's web site contains a subliminal visual image that radically alters the Great Seal of the United States, and superimposes his logo over the symbol of the flag. The Great Seal of the United States dates back to 1782 and is the official coat of arms of the United States.  It appears on the back of every dollar bill. You can see it here. Senator Obama's Great Seal, which appears subtly in the background as his website loads, is fundamentally different. You can see Obama's Great Seal here. Here are some of the differences.

- The Great Seal of the U.S. features a bald eagle in repose, clutching an olive branch and arrows. The image is strong, confident, symmetrical and centered.  Obama's Great Seal features a bald eagle in panicky flight, racing off screen. The image is off-kilter, chaotic and in motion.

- The U.S. eagle faces forward. Obama's eagle faces backwards, turning away from the viewer in its hasty retreat.

- The U.S. eagle clutches an olive branch in one talon and a set of arrows in the other. It turns towards the olive branch, signifying America's preference for peace but readiness for war.Obama's eagle drops the olive branch, whose leaves scatter as it flies away. Only one arrow remains. It pierces the center of the eagle's shield.

- The U.S. Seal features a shield emblazoned in the eagle's center, symbolizing the American flag. Obama's flag shield is off-balance, tilting beneath the retreating eagle. The flag shield is no longer the dominant visual motif. It has been superseded by the Obama logo of the rising sun.

- The overall visual effect of the Great Seal of the United States is one of power, confidence and a nation at ease with its own identity. The overall effect of Obama's Great Seal is of confusion, disarray, and a New World Order arising from Obama's ascending sun. The tilted lines of the shield subtly suggest the famous images of the steel girder ruins of the World Trade Center. It is as if Obama's sun is rising over the wreckage, heralding the flight of the American eagle and a new era of radical upheaval.

Obama has made a practice of tampering with and disrespecting American symbols. He designed his own Presidential seal, painted over the American flag on his campaign jet and replaced it with his logo, and left thousands of American flags in the trash after the Democratic convention.

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."  ...  "The worship of God is a duty...Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God and nature… I never doubted the existence of the Deity, that he made the world, and governed it by His Providence...The pleasures of this world are rather from God's goodness than our own merit... Whoever shall introduce into the public affairs the principles of primitive (essential) Christianity will change the face of the world... Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God."  - Benjamin Franklin

Mandating a Perfect World Liberal-progressives’ conception of social justice always requires the political state forcibly to impose some form of equality. Social justice, in the catechism of the socialist religion, is no more than an exertion of raw power to force people to conform to what liberal-progressives believe conditions ought to be. Forced equality was the mode in the world’s first socialist political state, Revolutionary France. ...This sort of social justice collides head-on with the reality of human nature, and it is directly antithetical to the Constitution.

Obama and "The Left" by Thomas Sowell - Barack Obama can match Bill Clinton in slickness at parsing words to evade accusations. … Once we recognize this basic fact of representative government, then the question of how trustworthy a candidate is becomes a more urgent question than any of the so-called "real issues." …Some people who see the fraud in what Obama is saying are amazed that others do not. But Obama knows what con men have long known, that their job is not to convince skeptics but to enable the gullible to continue to believe what they want to believe. He does that very well.

Believers in Obama by Thomas Sowell - Telling a friend that the love of his life is a phony and dangerous is not likely to get him to change his mind. But it may cost you a friend. It is much the same story with true believers in Barack Obama. They have made up their minds and not only don't want to be confused by the facts, they resent being told the facts. An e-mail from a reader mentioned trying to tell his sister why he was voting against Obama but, when he tried to argue some facts, she cut him short: "You don't like him and I do!" she said. End of discussion. ...The magic word "change" makes specifics unnecessary. If things are going bad, some think that what is needed is blank-check "change." ...Yet many today seem to assume that if things are bad, "change" will make them better. Specifics don't interest them nearly as much as inspiring rhetoric and a confident style(ETH. Sheeple) But many 20th century leaders with inspiring rhetoric and great self-confidence led their followers or their countries into utter disasters. These ranged from Jim Jones who led hundreds to their deaths in Jonestown to Hitler and Mao who led millions to their deaths. What specifics do we know about Barack Obama's track record that might give us some clue as to what kinds of "changes" to expect if he is elected? ...The public has been told very little about what this man with the wonderful rhetoric has actually done. What we know is enough to make us wonder about what we don't know. Or it ought to. For the true believers-- which includes many in the media-- it is just a question of whether you like him or not.

"[Obama’s] answer actually scared me even more. He said he wants to distribute wealth. And I mean, I’m not trying to make statements here, but, I mean, that’s kind of a socialist viewpoint. You know, I work for that. You know, it’s my discretion who I want to give my money to; it’s not for the government decide that I make a little too much and so I need to share it with other people. That’s not the American Dream." Joe the Plumber

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."  ...  "The worship of God is a duty...Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God and nature… I never doubted the existence of the Deity, that he made the world, and governed it by His Providence...The pleasures of this world are rather from God's goodness than our own merit... Whoever shall introduce into the public affairs the principles of primitive (essential) Christianity will change the face of the world... Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God."  - Benjamin Franklin

Americans must choose which they subscribe to? "We the people" or "We the sheeple?" Remain a Republic or become a Socialist State of massive cradle-to-grave-nanny-state taxpayer funded entitlements with the failed bureaucracy of government control?  Do we want our American descendants to know Biblical moral virtue or political correctness? In 1787, when the Founding Fathers had hammered out the U.S. Constitution in Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Benjamin Franklin told an inquiring woman what the gathering had produced, "A republic, madam, if you can keep it."

"A Republic if you can keep it." (Oct. 15, 2008) Former judge Robert Bork delivered the first lecture in Heritage’s Joseph Story Distinguished Lecture. It was taken from a quote by Benjamin Franklin when asked what the Founding Fathers were giving to the American people when drafting the Constitution. He correctly asserted that the republic is contingent, not guaranteed. Bork contended the courts are a great threat to keeping the republic. Instead of interpreting law on the basis of the principles set forth in the Constitution, judges interject their own morality and political beliefs in their arguments.

Palin warns Obama would create nanny state if elected Sarah Palin warned that putting Obama in the White House along with Democrats running both chambers of Congress will turn the country into a nanny state. Palin cautioned Iowans that under Obama’s “big government agenda,” their income, property and investments would be “shared with everybody else.” She labeled Obama’s plan to provide tax credits to lower and middle-income wage-earners “the philosophy of government taking more, which is a misuse of the power to tax.” “It leads to government moving into the role of taking care of you, and government and politicians and, kind of moving in as the other half of your family to make decisions for you,” she said. “Now they do this in other countries where the people are not free. Government as part of the family, taking care of us, making decisions for us. I don’t know what to think of having in my family Uncle Barney Frank or others to make decisions for me.”

“The left subscribes to the French Revolution, whose guiding principles were ‘Liberty, Equality, Fraternity.’ The right subscribes to the American formula, ‘Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.’ The French/European notion of equality is not mentioned. The right rejects the French Revolution and does not hold Western Europe as a model. The left does. That alone makes right and left irreconcilable. The left envisions an egalitarian society. The right does not. The left values equality above other values because it yearns for an America in which all people have similar amounts of material possessions... The right values equality in opportunity and strongly believes that all people are created equal, but the right values liberty, a man-woman based family and other values above equality.” Dennis Prager

Is the USA ready for an American Stalin? By Sher Zieve - One major difference between Obama and Stalin, however, is that Stalin is said to have gradually increased power within the Soviet Union's Communist Party. Obama is grabbing it immediately and will keep his power in place via his "Truth Squads," his militant Obama Youth (as the Nazis had their "Hitler Youth" this is more Hitlerian that Stalinistic) and his national voter fraud unit ACORN. ...Obama has long been an adherent of Marxism and — as well as having befriended and worked with Marxist terrorists William Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn — one of his earliest mentors was Saul Alinsky; Marxist and the American founder of "community organizing" in Chicago. In his book "Rules for Radicals" — which he dedicated to Satan — Alinsky outlines how to create radicals and take over impoverished communities and then extend into the larger suburban areas by lulling the middle class into a false sense of comfort with the organizers' ideas. Alinsky advises that by the time the "educated" middle class realizes the radicals were lying, it's too late. Note: After Obama is elected, all of his programs and people to keep him in power indefinitely — and to rid him of any and all opposition — will be firmly in place. You will not be able to vote him out of office. By the time he assumes the position of President of the United States it will already be too late. A democratic republic will last only so long as people of good will allow and fight for it. After they are gone — or removed — it is ended.

The socialist biased humanistic politically correct mainstream media: Willing defenders of the Democrat Party, are successful in keeping all the FACTS and opinions from the sheeple. Democrats simply rely on their ally, the MSM to keep the sheeple, well, sheeple.

This election is really a referendum on the stupidity of the American voter By Gabriel Garnica - After watching the mainstream media sink to new lows of blatant favoritism, absurd bias and an almost unimaginable level of spin, I have come to the conclusion that this election will really be a measure on just how stupid the average American voter truly is.

"[D]emocracy will soon degenerate into an anarchy, such an anarchy that every man will do what is right in his own eyes and no man's life or property or reputation or liberty will be secure, and every one of these will soon mould itself into a system of subordination of all the moral virtues and intellectual abilities, all the powers of wealth, beauty, wit and science, to the wanton pleasures, the capricious will, and the execrable cruelty of one or a very few."  -  John Adams (An Essay on Man's Lust for Power, 29 August 1763) Reference: Original Intent, Barton (338); original The Papers of John Adams, Taylor, ed., vol. 1 (83)

Barack Hussein Obama would make a great Leader… of an Unconstitutional, Infanticidal, Communistic, Dictatorial Regime By Cynthia Noland Dunbar - I must admit that I fail to see how any American could vote for Obama. I am dumbfounded that American voters could even consider electing a man of his caliber. The only excuse for such a paradox is that Americans have forgotten what it means to be American. What do I mean by American? I’m talking about alignment with our Charter documents.

Overview of America 1 of 4  - For those who haven't been taught in America's present government-run schools what the difference is between a Republic and a Democracy, Electoral College vs. popular vote, Bill of Rights which limits Government vs. creating a socialistic cradle-to-grave-nanny-state, view these four short videos, and discover how our government, primarily Democrats, have duped "we the sheeple" into dependency on government.

There Are Two Irreconcilable Americas By Dennis Prager - It is time to confront the unhappy fact about our country: There are now two Americas. Not a rich one and a poor one; economic status plays little role in this division. There is a red one and a blue one. That is not the case. For the most part, right and left differ in their visions of America and that is why they differ on policies. Right and the left do not want the same America. The left wants America to look as much like Western European countries as possible. The left wants Europe's quasi-pacifism, cradle-to-grave socialism, egalitarianism and secularism in America. The right wants none of those values to dominate America. The left wants America not only to have a secular government, but to have a secular society. The left feels if people want to be religious, they should do so at home and in their houses of prayer, but never try to inject their religious values into society. The right wants America to continue to be what it has always been - a Judeo-Christian society with a largely secular government (that is not indifferent to religion). These opposing visions explain, for example, their opposite views concerning nondenominational prayer in school. The left prefers to identify as citizens of the world. The left fears nationalism in general (this has been true for the European left since World War I), and since the 1960s, the American left has come to fear American nationalism in particular. On the other side, the right identifies first as citizens of America.

The End of 'We the People' by Cal Thomas - Anyone desiring a preview of what the federal judiciary would look like under a Barack Obama administration need look no further than a narrow ruling by the Connecticut Supreme Court allowing same-sex "marriage." ...Gay rights advocates will take their agenda to federal courts as soon as sufficient numbers of liberal judges are there to give them what they want. Watch them vote in overwhelming numbers for Barack Obama. He is their future. This election is, among other things, about the future of the majority and whether we want this country to be shaped by the courts, or by "we the people."

It's the Socialism, Stupid!  But I can’t sum up the anger amongst regular folks any better than the “angry man” at McCain’s Wisconsin town hall last week.--It’s the socialism, stupid! Folks are angry because they love liberty and they see the difference between Obama’s rhetoric and his record. They know he is the most liberal (read most socialist) person in Congress and they don’t want the country that has shed precious blood defending freedom across the globe to quietly surrender it at home. I constantly hear from folks who love their country. They cherish the American foundations of individual liberty, freely elected government, free enterprise, and moral and spiritual values. Unlike Barack Obama, they don’t love the country for what it can be after socialist manipulation; they love it right now for the principles on which it was founded. This does not make them racists. It makes them patriots. For the good of the country, the Democrats and the Obama fan club, better known as the media, should stop slandering freedom loving Americans. The angry man in Wisconsin had it right. This election is really about one thing—whether we embrace socialism or liberty—and that is worthy of every ounce of our passion.

"It's the socialists taking over our country" Jon Marie - If Obama is elected president, America will become a place that is unrecognizable. A Supreme Court stocked with radical liberalism will change the political and social landscape for more than mere decades. A vote for the Fifth column Democrats will cripple our country and send this nation spiraling into socialism. We will not be able to return to the days of our founding fathers who had a much different vision for our country than what we see coming. A vote for Democrats will bring legislation from the bench by extreme liberal judges. Everything that you hold near and dear will be challenged and changed. Even your Judeo- Christian faith will be whittled away.

"The reason this country continues its drift toward socialism and big nanny government is because too many people vote in the expectation of getting something for nothing, not because they have a concern for what is good for the country... If children were forced to learn about the Constitution, about how government works, about how this nation came into being, about taxes and about how government forever threatens the cause of liberty perhaps we wouldn't see so many foolish ideas coming out of the mouths of silly old men." Lyn Nofziger

"When there is a lack of honor in government, the morals of the whole people are poisoned. There is no such thing as a no-man's land between honesty and dishonesty. Our strength lies in spiritual concepts. It lies in public sensitiveness to evil. Our greatest danger is not from invasion by foreign armies. Our dangers are that we may commit suicide from within by complaisance with evil, or by public tolerance of scandalous behavior." Herbert Hoover

Liberty from God or mandated by the government?

Please answer the following questions to see where you agree or disagree with Barack Obama: Brad O'Leary, author of The Audacity of Deceit, joined Glenn Beck to talk about some of the issues he came up with while investigating Barack Obama. He goes issue by issue to see how the most liberal Senator in the United States stacks up against the average American. One interesting survey question O'Leary thought to ask was 'how much in taxes should someone pay if they win a million dollars in the lottery?'

“A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.” - This quote is most often attributed to Alexander Tyler (or Tytler?) writing in 1787 about the fall of the Athenian Republic.

"When I asked them why, they said because he was good looking, his rhetoric was wonderful, [and] they liked listening to him." In response, he put together a test for voters to compare their views on the issues with those of Obama. "You score one point every time you agree with Barack Obama and you subtract a point every time you disagree with him," O'Leary explains.

Barack Obama as Jack Armstrong - The All-American Boy by Don Feder - A new commercial by Barack Obama (“The Country I believe in”) is easily the most dishonest, hypocritical, cynical campaign ad ever aired. Did I mention its hypocrisy? In the closing days of the campaign, with a significant lead in the polls, Obama is still nervous – haunted by his leftist past and radical associations. The ad is aimed at making us believe that he really is one of us – an American.

GLSEN founder part of Obama's team - The founder of a group that's been accused of promoting teen-adult homosexual relationships is the Obama campaign's fundraising co-chair for the "lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender" (LGBT) community. Kevin Jennings is the outgoing head of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), a group known for its efforts to establish so-called "Gay-Straight Alliance" clubs in public schools across the country. The longtime homosexual activist is also playing a prominent role in Barack Obama's White House bid. (Read commentary: 'Obama's connection to GLSEN') Linda Harvey, president of Mission America, says many parents would be frightened to know that one of Senator Obama's top homosexual fundraisers founded a group, namely GLSEN, which has recommended books that condone sex between men and teenage boys. "GLSEN believes that there should be homosexual clubs in K-12 schools, that children can self-determine their own sexuality at the grade-school level, that evidently it's fine for children to read and be exposed to many, many child corruption elements of sexuality, including the possibility of having sex with an adult," Harvey explains. Jennings' position in the Obama campaign, according to Harvey, either shows the senator does not have people vetted very well or actually supports teaching kids "the tactics of revolution."

A Chilling Look at an Obama Presidency - Focus on the Family Action - Liberals could dominate the government in a way they haven't in decades. What are the stakes in the upcoming election? Come Nov. 4, it's possible Democrats will control both chambers of Congress and the White House. The Wall Street Journal said it "would be one of the most profound political and ideological shifts in U.S. history. Liberals would dominate the entire government in a way they haven't since 1965 or 1933." An analysis by Focus on the Family Action shows it would not be a pretty picture: Far-left liberals could hold a 6-3 majority on the U.S. Supreme Court. The nation's highest court could rule same-sex "marriage" is a constitutional right — in all 50 states. Preaching from the Bible could be banned from radio and television. States may not be able to restrict abortion, and taxpayers could be forced to fund abortions. In several states, it could be illegal to own a gun. Think it can't happen? Read the "Letter from 2012 in Obama’s America."

Deregulation Didn’t Do It - By Conn Carroll Listening to politicians on the left speak about the current financial turmoil, one gets the impression that when President Bush took office in 2001 there was a perfect financial regulatory system in place. Only since then, they claim, has it been systemically destroyed by the Bush administration. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) says, “[1] the Bush Administration’s eight long years of failed deregulation policies have resulted in our nation’s largest bailout ever, leaving the American taxpayers on the hook potentially for billions of dollars.” Barack Obama echoed this sentiment in the final presidential debate when he said, “[2] the biggest problem in this whole process was the deregulation of the financial system.” There’s just one problem with this analysis. [3] There has been no deregulation of the financial sector during the Bush administration. In fact, the largest legislative action in financial services during the Bush years was the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which [4] increased regulation and drove capital markets overseas. Furthermore, according to data from the Government Accountability Office, of the 23 major regulatory actions (defined as an economic effect of $100 million or more) taken by the Securities and Exchange Commission since Bush took office, only eight lessened regulatory burdens. Compare that to President Bill Clinton’s second term, which lessened burdens in almost half of rulemaking proceedings. But maybe the problem wasn’t bad regulations, but bad regulators. Maybe the Bush administration weakened financial regulators? This isn’t true either. The SEC’s budget jumped from $357 million in 2000 to a whopping $629 million in 2008.

Christians Must Not Vote for Obama - The following is submitted by Bishop E.W. Jackson Sr., President, Staying True To America’s National Destiny ("STAND"): "We are no longer a Christian nation..." Barack Obama declared. "We are...a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation and a nation of nonbelievers." Is Obama right? Are we a Muslim or Buddhist or Hindu nation? Are we a nation of nonbelievers? Not according to any credible statistical or cultural measures. The greatest danger to our future is political leaders who would rob us of the values which make our nation great. The Founding Fathers held a Judeo-Christian understanding of America's place in the world. As a Christian and an American of African descent, it pains me to conclude that Barack Obama would move our country dramatically away from God and the values which made this nation possible and prosperous. First, Obama is the most radical pro-abortion candidate ever to run for President. As a State Senator he alone blocked the "Born Alive Infants Protection Act", which guaranteed medical care to babies born alive in spite of attempted abortion. Jill Stanek, who testified at Obama's hearing on the legislation said, "his lack of mercy, shocked me..." Second, Obama has said that he would not belong to a church which is "averse" to gays and lesbians. He views Bible believers as bigots against homosexuals rather than as principled Christians opposed to sin. Christians cannot vote for a politician who supports radical deviation from our biblical understanding of marriage, family and sexual morality. Third, Obama's history is one of opposition to Israel. He belonged to a church which honors Louis Farrakhan, and supports Hamas. He has had close ties to supporters of anti-Israeli terrorism such as Rashid Khalidi and Ali Abunimah. Bible believing Christians cannot vote for an enemy of Israel. To do so invites the curse of God. When we stand in the voting booth on November 4th, 2008, we must stand for the righteousness of God rather than bowing to racial identity or social pressure. True change must come from adherence to the unchanging truths which have guided our nation's destiny. Obama says we are not a Christian nation. He must not receive a single Christian vote. Bishop Jackson is the author of "Ten Commandments To An Extraordinary Life", President of STAND - dedicated to restoring America's faith tradition and values and is Bishop of Exodus Faith Ministries in Chesapeake, Virginia and Boston, Massachusetts.

Obama Aims to Kill 401(k) Tax Breaks In a possible preview of economic policy under an Obama Administration, powerful House Democrats are looking at eliminating most of the $80 billion in annual tax breaks for 401(k) investors. Workforce Management reports that Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Washington, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee's Subcommittee on Income Security and Family Support, and House Education and Labor Committee Chairman George Miller, D-California, are studying how to alter the nation's $3 trillion 401(k) system, to eliminate investor tax breaks and force workers' money into obligatory retirement accounts.

Religion-phobe Barry Lynn is at it again, getting in his final dig at pastors before the November 4 election. His Americans United for the Separation of Church and State dropped a 100,000-piece mailing this week to churches, threatening them to stay silent on moral issues-or else. The scare tactic is a favorite of Lynn's, whose purpose is to undermine pastors' constitutional rights to speak about moral issues from the pulpit. With just days to go before voters decide a host of important ballot initiatives, American United is doing its best to frighten clergy. This week, the organization called for an IRS investigation of Bishop Arthur Serratelli, who wrote a passionate article about the dangers of the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA). Although Bishop Serratelli was well within his rights to comment, Lynn is accusing him of denouncing Sen. Barack Obama, who has pledged to make FOCA his first priority. Accurate guidance on the law for pastors can be found on the Alliance Defense Fund's great website at http://www.telladf.org/church.

Obama's Betrayed Message by Charles Krauthammer - Let me get this straight. A couple of agitated yahoos in a rally of thousands yell something offensive and incendiary, and John McCain and Sarah Palin are not just guilty by association -- with total strangers, mind you -- but worse: guilty according to The New York Times of "race-baiting and xenophobia." But should you bring up Barack Obama's real associations -- 20 years with Jeremiah Wright, working on two foundations and distributing money with William Ayers, citing the raving Michael Pfleger as one who helps him keep his moral compass (Chicago Sun-Times, April 2004) and the long-standing relationship with the left-wing vote-fraud specialist ACORN -- you have crossed the line into illegitimate guilt by association. Moreover, it is tinged with racism.

National Republican Trust (email seeking donations)

Obama Lie No. 1 — I will tax just the rich. There is no such thing as a tax on just the rich. Taxes on wealthy people affect everyone. Remember, Obama defines anyone making over $90,000 a year as "rich." Joe the plumber discovered that Obama thinks Joe's rich too. Under Obama, he won't be able to hire new employees and grow his business. Joe's not alone. Obama says he'll strip away the FICA cap at $90,000 for every worker. That means every dollar you earn over that amount, you'll pay 7 percent!

Obama Lie No. 2 — I want to give a tax cut to the middle class. Baloney! Obama says he will let the Bush tax cuts expire. That's an automatic 5 percent (maximum) tax increase on almost all taxpayers. Plus middle class folks pay capital gains taxes. Obama has said he wants to almost double them from a low of 15 percent to almost 30 percent. He wants to hike the dividend tax, and he also has promised taxes on gas and energy. Obama also wants to dramatically increase the estate tax, which had almost disappeared. There goes your idea of sharing your wealth with your kids in the future.

Obama Lie No. 3 — I want to make America more secure. Another outright lie. In an age when crazies like Iran 's Ahmadinejad are building ballistic missiles and promise to "destroy" the United States and Israel , Obama has promised to gut the missile defense program created by President Reagan. "I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems," Obama said. He has promised to cut "tens of billions" of dollars from the Defense Department. In an effort to make us more "secure," Obama plans to disarm us. In the age of 9/11 can we afford such a radical Leftist in the White House? No, we can't.

Obama is not just a danger to our economy, with his plans to raise taxes and spend $800 billion in new programs. He is a radical out to reshape America beyond recognition. He is so radical he even backed driver's licenses for illegal aliens — even though such a move would help future terrorists move freely in the United States .

Even Hillary Clinton opposed his radical plan. But Obama not only touted such a plan running for president, he pushed for giving illegals driver's licenses as a state senator in Illinois . He is also the most pro-abortion candidate in the history of the country. In 2001, as a state legislator in Illinois , he opposed a bill to protect live-born children — children actually born alive! He was the only Illinois senator to speak out against the bill. He opposes gun rights. He has long history of trying to deny ordinary citizens access to guns. He originally backed Washington D.C. 's total ban on private handguns — a ban that was overturned. The NRA rated him an "F" on gun positions and says he is one of the most dangerous anti-gun politicians in the nation. Never forget that Obama is a Harvard-educated elitist. To him, we Americans are simply "bitter" and he has mocked us saying "[they] cling to their guns and their religion."

Hillary Clinton was late in recognizing the threat Obama posed to her campaign, but once she did, her strategy worked. When Hillary exposed Obama publicly, her campaign saw a major turnaround. Hillary won every major state primary in the nation with the sole exception of Obama's home state of Illinois . And even though Obama was "anointed" by the media and Democratic elites, Hillary went on to win eight of the last 10 Democratic primaries.

Difference between Democrat-Republican (pdf) at God: The Original Intent

Why I'm a Republican  by Marcia Stirman, Alamogordo

I read in today's paper what a woman wrote explaining why she's a Democrat.

Let me tell you why I'm not. I'm a Republican because:

I believe in a sovereign God who sometimes gives us what we deserve.

I believe Muslims are our enemies.

I believe in life. A baby is not just a fetus, but a living being no matter where it resides.

I believe there is a good reason for the death penalty.

I believe in fiscal responsibility, for the government and for us.

I believe the government is way too big and rife with greed and corruption.

I believe in the truth. People believe lies because it's much easier than finding the truth.

I believe in personal responsibility. That includes spanking your children.

I believe American women should raise their own children and American men should be men enough to pay for children they've produced.

I believe a man and woman make marriage. Period.

I believe in America first and foremost and we ought to take care of our own people, our own land, and illegal aliens should go home.

I believe in guns and knowing how to use them properly.

I believe war is a fact of life and we should always win.

I believe in lower taxes. I know how to spend money better than Congress any day of the week.

I believe in voter ID.

I believe there is a moderate and a socialist in this election. I agree with a two-party system, but Obama isn't a messiah or a democrat.

He's a Muslim socialist.

'Smears' About Obama Largely True By: Lowell Ponte - The Obama campaign says its candidate is a victim of “smears” — and has even created a Web site to fight such attacks. But a Newsmax investigation finds many of the so-called smears are largely based in truth — and the Obama campaign uses half-truths, clever language, and ad hominem attacks to spin the facts. Obama’s www.FightTheSmears.com focuses mainly on anti-Obama messages being repeated on the Internet and talk radio, the only media where Obama's ideological allies are not dominant. These "smears" and the Obama rebuttals are often framed in lawyerly language that leaves much wiggle room in the candidate’s answers. (Click here to see the spin on ten of these facts.)

Huntley Brown: Why I Can't Vote for Obama - Many of my friends process their identity through their blackness. I process my identity through Christ. Being a Christian (a Christ follower) means He leads I follow. I can't dictate the terms He does because He is the leader. I can't vote black because I am black, I have to vote Christian because that's who I am. Christian first, black second. Neither should anyone from the other ethnic groups vote because of ethnicity. 200 years from now I won't be asked if I was black or white. I will be asked if I knew Jesus and accepted Him as Lord and Savior. In an election there are many issues to consider but when a society gets abortion, same-sex marriage, embryonic stem-cell research, human cloning to name a few, wrong economic concerns will soon not matter. We need to follow Martin Luther King's words, don't judge someone by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I don't know Obama so all I can go off is his voting record. His voting record earned him the title of the most liberal senator in the US Senate in 2007. NATIONAL JOURNAL: Obama: Most Liberal Senator in 2007 (01/31/2008) To beat Ted Kennedy and Hilary Clinton as the most liberal senator, takes some doing. Obama accomplished this feat in 2 short years. I wonder what would happen to America if he had four years to work with. There is a reason Planned Parenthood gives him a 100 % rating. There is a reason the homosexual community supports him. There is a reason Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Castro, Hamas etc. love him. There is a reason he said he would nominate liberal judges to the Supreme Court. There is a reason he voted against the infanticide bill. There is a reason he voted No on the constitutional ban of same-sex marriage. There is a reason he voted No on banning partial birth abortion. There is a reason he voted No on confirming Justices Roberts and Alito. These two judges are conservatives and they have since overturned partial birth abortion. The same practice Obama wanted to continue. Let's take a look at the practice he wanted to continue. THE 5 STEP PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION PROCEDURE Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the (live) baby's leg with forceps. The baby's leg is pulled out into the birth canal. The abortionist delivers the baby's entire body, except for the head. The abortionist jams scissors into the baby's skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the hole. The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child's brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.

How to Read the Constitution  The following is an excerpt from Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas's Wriston Lecture to the Manhattan Institute last Thursday 10/17/2008: When John F. Kennedy said in his inaugural address, "Ask not what your country can do for you -- ask what you can do for your country," we heard his words with ears that had been conditioned to receive this message and hearts that did not resist it. We heard it surrounded by fellow citizens who had known lives of sacrifice and hardships from war, the Great Depression and segregation. All around us seemed to ingest and echo his sentiment and his words. Our country and our principles were more important than our individual wants, and by discharging our responsibilities as citizens, neighbors, and students we would make our country better. It all made sense. Today, we live in a far different environment. My generation, the self-indulgent "me" generation, has had a profound effect on much around us. Rarely do we hear a message of sacrifice -- unless it is a justification for more taxation and transfers of wealth to others. Nor do we hear from leaders or politicians the message that there is something larger and more important than the government providing for all of our needs and wants -- large and small. The message today seems more like: Ask not what you can do for yourselves or your country, but what your country must do for you.

Are you "mainstream?"  I.E. Do you possess Biblical moral virtue or have you been duped into being "politically correct?"

The sheeple, instead of enjoying liberty from God (as prescribed in the Declaration of Independence), appear to prefer to have their liberties mandated by the government,
-
which as the "Politically Correct" anti-Judeo-Christian agenda reveals, shows utter contempt for the Righteousness of God as designed and defined according to the Word of God.
- "We the sheeple" prefer a way that seems right unto man, even though that way leads to death. (Proverbs 14:12 and 16:25)
- Why is it many Americans continue to vote for socialists, masking as democrats?
- Do they really want government to a socialistic nanny-state providing all their needs from cradle to the grave?
- Do they really want government to be their god?
- Are they too busy, cynical, and apathetic and choose to let others decide the future of their children?
- Are they too complacent, comfortable and complacent in their American Way of Life, howbeit it came with a price?
- Are they too busy to be concerned for America's future generations?
- Are they just self-centered and selfish? 
- Maybe it is not that complicated. Perhaps they are just so shallow the socialists and their co-defenders, the liberally biased media, are simply taking advantage of their apathy and lack of concern? Not until the MSM is fully revealed in this deceit, AND corrects itself by providing fair and balanced coverage, will “we the sheeple” finally hear both sides of every issue. Only then will the voters see exactly where the “Politically Correct” Democratic Party of liberals are leading America.

"We could not have a more important election about America's future than the one we will face this year. We already have the most liberal, pro-abortion, pro-homosexual Congress in the history of America. We cannot afford to unleash an unbridled leftist, secular, anti-religious agenda on America and our children. Economic problems are only a symptom of this Nation's problem; they are not the cause. We are calling Americans to stand together and return to this Nation's core values." Mat Staver- Liberty Counsel

The once-great Democratic Party - “The government is best which governs least.”  Thomas Jefferson Father of the Democratic Party

Jefferson, who authored our Declaration of Independence, led the Anti-Federalist movement against the ratification of the Constitution, because he feared that those elected to lead our nation would forgo their higher calling to “support and defend the Constitution,” and become pawns for special interests, using those constituencies to perpetuate their office and further centralize government power. Nowhere was he more concerned about this degradation of public integrity than in regard to the judiciary. Jefferson feared it would become the “despotic branch,”, undermining and altering the proposed constitution by judicial diktat rather than its prescribed method. ...Consider this: Five Supreme Court justices will be over 70 years of age in the first year of the next presidential term. Two of them, the most liberal, will be 76 and 89. The next president will thus determine whether the Supreme Court will abide by leftist ideology, or by their oath to support and defend our Constitution. It’s no exaggeration to say that the future of our nation hangs in the balance. If we are not a nation governed by a firm Constitution of laws, but a “Living Constitution,” which, as Jefferson noted, would be a “mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary which they may twist and shape into any form they please,” then we are a nation of men. ...

In his keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention this year, Virginia Senate candidate Mark Warner described the Republican Party: “It is made up of the Christian Coalition... It is made up of the right-to-lifers... It’s made up of the NRA... It is made up of the home schoolers... It’s made up of a whole coalition of people that have all sorts of differing views that I think most of us in this room would find threatening to what it means to be an American.”

A few decades ago, that list of folks would have been welcome in the Democratic Party, not “threatening to what it means to be an American.” But today, that Party is fundamentally flawed in its platform, and it co-opts voter constituencies who, though they may be good people in general, are fundamentally disabled in their understanding of our nation’s founding principles and their civic roles and responsibilities.

The real question is not so much what has happened to the Party of Jefferson, but what has happened to “the people” who now call themselves Democrats? Obama is not the problem, just its manifestation. The problem is that we are a nation with a collapsing foundation of broken families, where the faith of our founders has been replaced with the real “opiate of the masses,” the mass media, and where ignorance has been institutionalized through our “ public education apparatchiks.”

Perhaps we are a nation where a majority of the electorate now identifies with the dysfunctional pathology of Obama than with the individual character and institutional principles that are the foundation of our Democratic Republic.

The good news is that in my home, and tens of millions like it, we still model for our children the principle of “third person” living: God first, others (including family, neighbors and country) second, and self third. It is our highest ambition for our children that they will invest their lives in service to others, that they will honor the blood and sacrifice of generations of Patriots before them and be steadfast in their determination to defend our Constitution and the liberties it embodies in order to extend freedom to the next generation. We have not surrendered this political battle, any more than we have surrendered the cultural war in which we are now engaged.

Thomas Jefferson wrote, for posterity, “Honor, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them if we basely entail hereditary bondage on them.” Today, tragically, his once-noble Democratic Party has embraced bondage and servitude.

Is not a vote for ANY Democrat a vote for socialism,
- the loss of America's power, sovereignty, and noble leadership in the world in favor of United Nations dominance, - selective First Amendment dictates, continued infringement of the Second Amendment,
- increased secular humanistic anti-Christian government-run schools and pre-schools, and "higher" education rewriting history to eradicate America's Christian Heritage,
- and continued dependence on foreign energy sources?

War on Terror - The Democrats have provided enough evidence of their weakness and naivety of diplomacy, while Republicans currently continue to speak softly and carry a big stick.

OBAMA

28% on profit from ALL home sales.

How does this affect you?  If you sell your home and make a profit, you will pay 28% of your gain on taxes.

If you are heading toward retirement and would like to down-size your home or move into a retirement community,

28% of the money you make from your home sale will go to taxes.

OBAMA

39.6%

How will this affect you?  If you have money invested in stock market, IRA, mutual funds, college funds, life insurance,

retirement accounts, or anything that pays or reinvests dividends, you will be paying nearly 40% of the money earned

on taxes if Obama becomes president.  The experts predict that 'Higher tax rates on dividends and capital gains would

crash the stock market, yet do absolutely nothing to cut the deficit.'

Many families lost businesses, farms, ranches, and homes that have been in their families for generations

 because they could not afford the inheritance tax. Those willing their assets to loved ones will lose them to these taxes.

          NEW TAXES PROPOSED BY OBAMA

New government taxes proposed on homes more than 2,400 square feet.

New gasoline taxes (as if gas weren't high enough already)

New taxes on natural resources consumption (heating gas, water, electricity)

TO PREPARE FOR ELECTION DAY: Traditional Values Coalition has released a first ever, unique presidential voter analysis, which is aimed at helping you, the values voter, make the most informed decision possible when you step into the voting booth. We’ve included numerous videos of the presidential candidates outlining their plans for America. In other words, there is no media filtering or bias—you’ll hear from the candidates in their own words. You may not have seen many of these videos. The guide also includes a summary of the platforms of the Democrat and Republican Party, as well as votes and positions on the issues, showing where Sen. McCain and Sen. Obama stand on key issues.

Please vote! Our children's future depends on it! In my 70 years, I have never seen an election where coverage was so one-sided and biased or where censorship by the liberal media was so widely practiced and where media coverage was so slanted as I have seen in this election process. Their plan is working. The only chance conservatives have is to make sure they care enough to vote. If the liberals win the upcoming election, America as we have known it will no longer exist. This country that we love, founded on Judeo-Christian values, will cease to exist and will be replaced by a secular state hostile to Christianity. This “city set on a hill” which our forefathers founded, will go dark. The damage will be deep and long lasting. It cannot be turned around in the next election, or the one after that, or by any election in the future. The damage will be permanent. That is why it is so important for you to vote and to encourage friends and family to vote. This is one election where your vote really counts. Donald E. Wildmon, Founder and Chairman American Family Association

Barack Obama - A President for the sheeple...

Liberty from God or mandated by the government?

"The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you've got it made." Groucho Marx

"Letter from 2012 in Obama’s America."

Going Negative! That's what the media cry when you accurately present the track record of liberal candidates. By Thomas Sowell - Why then is “negative advertising” such a big deal these days? The dirty little secret is this: Liberal candidates have needed to escape their past and pretend that they are not liberals, because so many voters have had it with liberals. ...In 1988, Governor Michael Dukakis of Massachusetts called himself a “technocrat,” a pragmatic solver of problems, despite a classic liberal track record of big spending, big taxes, and policies that were anti-business and pro-criminal. When the truth about what he actually did as governor was brought out during the presidential election campaign, the media were duly shocked — not by Dukakis’s record, but by the Republicans’ exposing his record. ...Barack Obama is much smoother. Instead of issuing explicit denials, he gives speeches that sound so moderate, so nuanced, and so lofty that even some conservative Republicans go for them. How could anyone believe that such a man is the very opposite of what he claims to be — unless they check out the record of what he has actually done? In words, Obama is a uniter instead of a divider. In deeds, he has spent years promoting polarization. That is what a “community organizer” does — creating a sense of grievance, envy, and resentment — in order to mobilize political action to get more of the taxpayers’ money or to force banks to lend to people they don’t consider good risks, as the community organizing group ACORN did.

Character & Corruption Personal judgments and alliances

“In selecting men for office, let principle be your guide. Regard not the particular sect or denomination of the candidate—look to his character.” Noah Webster

Consider the lives of both Presidential candidates. Consider McCain's military service and sacrifice and the associations Obama "served," as well as Obama's list of past and present associations and who is supporting Barack Obama and why? Franklin Raines, Tim Howard, Jim Johnson ACORN? George Soros? The "mainstream" media? MoveOn.org, Liberal Hollywood elites? Oprah? Bill Maher? Tim gill? Kevin Jennings? Terrence Bean? Bill Ayers? Brady Campaign, Planned Parenthood? NOW? NEA? Rev. Wright?  Democrats? Nancy Pelosi? Barney Frank? Chris Dodd? Chuck Schumer? Consider McCain's military career versus the 20 years Obama spent in Rev. Wright's church.

Perhaps most telling is their congressional voting records: McCain - ObamaBiden.

Third Presidential Debate: Flagrant Lies from Obama Karen L. Brauer MS, RPh is president of Pharmacists for Life International - Obama obviously does not know the Hippocratic Oath. Below is a relevant excerpt which should have prevented him from referencing this ancient health care regulation: "I will apply dietetic measures for the benefit of the sick according to my ability and judgment; I will keep them from harm and injustice. I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody who asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. Similarly I will not give to a woman an abortive remedy. In purity and holiness I will guard my life and my art." Due to the nature of his practice, an abortionist is in continuous violation of the Hippocratic oath, and obviously cannot be expected to adhere to it. The Hippocratic oath forbids euthanasia, physician assisted suicide, and abortion. For this reason the classic moral edict is no longer in use in most U.S. medical schools and institutions. Some physicians choose to take this oath independently, but having done so, they may be weeded out of medical practice in the near future, by the demands of government. The existing Illinois law, to which Obama referred, protected only those babies considered suitable to live by the abortionist who had been employed to kill them. As such, it was not effective in providing protection or appropriate medical treatment to those babies surviving abortion attempts at the Chicago area Christ Hospital, which inspired the federal Born Alive Infants Protection Act signed by President Bush in 2002, as well as the Illinois legislative attempts. I ask that voters avail themselves of the detailed information and legislative records relevant to this issue by visiting http://www.bornalivetruth.org.

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you." (Jeremiah 1:5).

WARNING: The Actor in Bella, Eduardo Verastegui's video, at http://www.obamamustsee.com/ is graphic, but not as graphic as what personally happens to an unborn baby during an abortion, at any stage. If the truth is too graphic and disturbing to you, what does God, the Creator, God the Father, feel? What did He feel when His Son was crucified? 

John McCain was asked when he thought life began. He said at conception. Obama said “whether theologically or scientifically” (that should raise a flag there concerning Obama’s faith) it “was above his pay grade.” See both candidate responses here: http://www.gloria.tv/?video=y6eo5z6hzhqufvtqd6jh  

The Scriptures say:

 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knows right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. Psalms 139:13-16  

As you know not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so you know not the works of God who makes all. Ecclesiastes 11:5

List of Obama's flip-flops - (EarsToHear.net thinks Obama is worse than a flip-flopper. He plays both sides of the fence, trying to please leftists while duping undecided sheeple.)

Do You Know the Real Barack Obama? by Carol Platt Liebau - As the 2008 presidential campaign hurtles into its final days, John McCain confronts a choice: He can either start telling the public about the real Barack Obama, or he can lose. For much of his career, McCain has been a media darling. He could count on the press to carry his water as long as he was a “maverick” Republican, driving more conservative members of his party crazy. But as he surely knows by now, when it comes to Barack Obama and the press, all bets are off. In covering Obama, the press has adopted a “don’t ask/don’t tell” policy designed to boost the least-vetted, least-known candidate ever to seek the presidency. It isn’t by accident that the media has denied all less-than-glowing stories about Obama the kind of consistent, sustained coverage that allows them to penetrate public consciousness.

Farrakhan on Obama: 'The Messiah is absolutely speaking' - You can watch it for yourself on a newly posted YouTube video. - "You are the instruments that God is going to use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn't care anything about. That's a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking."

Obama's Payoff to Unions by Mark Skousen “We’re ready to play offense for organized labor. It’s time we had a president who didn’t choke saying the word ‘union.’ A president who strengthens our unions by letting them do what they do best: organize our workers. . . . I will make it the law of the land when I’m president of the United States. . . . ” ~ Barack Obama. If Obama is elected president, which is highly likely according to the latest political futures market Intrade (now a 65% chance of winning), get ready for a unionized America and the end of the worker's right to a secret ballot. If he gets his way, Obama is ready to force millions of Americans into unions by eliminating, for all practical purposes, this fundamental American right.

Obama Ohio 'Faith' Tour Part of 'A Brazen Scam,' Says National Pro-Life Leader in New Article - Douglas Johnson, longtime legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) and author of an article published today on National Review Online, titled "Unholy Messaging," calls the Obama effort "a brazen scam."

Obama Promises Fraud Organization Role in Shaping Presidency on Video

1 VOTER, 72 REGISTRATIONS 'ACORN PAID ME IN CASH & CIGS' See also ACORN Voter Fraud Map and More ACORN Voter Fraud In Ohio - The report from Fox News reporter Bill Sammon describes a brewing voter fraud scandal and ACORN officials now admit they can’t determine what registration forms are valid and those that are fake. It may involve as many as 600,000 registration forms. (The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review has a list of nine states where ACORN is currently being investigated. They are: Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.)

What Would ACORN Do? Community organizing might sound like pauper’s work, but in today’s professionalized advocacy world, it is not. The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), had an operating budget of[3] $37 million in 2006. ACORN is spending [4] $16 million this year alone to register new Democrats nationwide. In today’s world, community organizing is big business, and that business is extortion. ACORN’s scam works like this: 1) identify deep pocket corporation; 2) protest that corporation; 3) sign a partnership with the corporation to end protest in exchange for money. From 2004 through 2006, ACORN won six-figure payments from [5] Ameriquest Mortgage, Citibank, Washington Mutual and M&T Bank. It even won million-dollar payments from [6] JP Morgan and Bank of America.

Barack Obama & Raila Odinga The Video that could cost Obama the election - You tube video (8m18s) of Barack Obama in Kenya supporting Raila Odinga, the election and violence afterwards. Odinga was the agent of change, that implemented Islamic law.

Lame Christian Media is Culpable for Our Cultural Corruption by Doug Giles - If our nation goes down the secular crapper, then I lay a lot of the blame on the limp-wrist Christian media. Yep, I condemn Christian TV, Christian radio stations and Christian publishers that have the power and the audience to pump truth to the masses but have instead chosen to peddle spiritual candy rather than the unvarnished verities that the church and our nation need.

The Coming Obama Thugocracy by Michael Barone - Obama supporters who found the campuses congenial and Obama himself, who has chosen to live all his adult life in university communities, seem to find it entirely natural to suppress speech that they don't like and seem utterly oblivious to claims that this violates the letter and spirit of the First Amendment. In this campaign, we have seen the coming of the Obama thugocracy, suppressing free speech, and we may see its flourishing in the four or eight years ahead.

Why You Should Not Vote For Senator Obama - The rock-bottom issue is the destructive nature of the secular religion of socialism, which is, next to Islam’s mandate for jihad, the most vicious and degrading religious movement ever to afflict humanity. The election of Senator Obama to the presidency will usher in a Federal government in which both the legislative and executive branches will be controlled by leaders who worship at the altar of socialism, a secular religion. Nearly half of the Supreme Court Justices and a large percentage of other Federal judges are socialists.

Obama Supporters Apparently Know Nothing About Obama Americans seem to know nothing about the candidates they are voting for - except the name. Howard Stern provides some amusing proof.

Obama Called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) ‘Abhorrent’ in 2004 Letter to Chicago Gay Newspaper

'Gay' pedophilia and Obama Linda Harvey asks if senator agrees with his GLBT supporters. I'd been wondering what Kevin Jennings was doing these days. Jennings is the founder and long-time head of the radical homosexual group GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. GLSEN's mission has been to plant "gay" clubs and training programs in as many schools as possible. GLSEN now claims 4,000 "gay-straight alliances" exist, although this number is doubtful. Certainly, there are way too many. The group's target has been to place these clubs in all U.S. schools, K through 12. If you think a kindergartener signing up for a "gay" club is ludicrous, you are not alone. But Jennings has moved on to better things. He's now the Obama campaign fundraising co-chair for the "LGBT" community – that's "lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered." You can listen to Jennings lay out the rights-oriented rhetoric in two interviews with Joe Solmonese of the Human Rights Campaign, on the website "LGBT for Obama."  ...Does Obama believe children are "born gay" and should be able to declare this identity in grade school and join a "gay" club? Kevin Jennings does. Does Obama believe consensual relationships between 15-year-olds and 29-nine-year-olds are OK? Jennings thinks so. (Some think Planned Parenthood does, too – another question for Obama.) Does Obama believe a "safe" school is one where no one can criticize homosexual behavior? Jennings does. Does Obama believe that, with the CDC reporting HIV rates rising around 12 percent per year for 13 to 24-year-old males who have sex with males (MSM), we still cannot tell our boys to abstain from homosexual behavior? Will he appoint clueless federal health officials? Kevin Jennings would approve. Does Obama believe kids can decide at age 9 or 10 that they were born in the wrong body, want to switch genders and have schools support this disorder? Jennings does. Does Obama believe the Christian moral standard that homosexuality is wrong needs to be suppressed and depicted as "hateful" in the public square, including schools? Jennings does. Does Obama believe that if same-sex "marriage" is legalized, this new "law" should be shoved down the throats of all children and their parents via social engineering in public schools? Jennings does. Does Obama believe that "social justice" and "school reform" require students to not just tolerate, but approve of homosexuality and gender change? That the "yuck" factor simply will not be allowed, because it reflects bigotry? Jennings does.

Judges and the Courts Constitutional Rulings or a Despotic Branch?

Liberty from God or mandated by the government?

Judges - Judges who interpret the law vs. Judges who make the law
- It is not clear that Obama will nominate secular humanistic anti-Christian activists judges?
- While McCain will nominate judges who will adhere to strict Constitutional interpretation and refrain from legislating from the bench.

What type of judges will Democrats nominate?

Mother to Face Contempt Charges for Refusing Custody of Daughter to Former Lesbian Lover Christian ex-lesbian could face total loss of custody or jail time for defying visitation order Lisa Miller, a former lesbian who rejected the homosexual lifestyle and returned to her belief in Christ, will face contempt of court charges today for refusing to give unsupervised visitation of her daughter to her former lesbian partner. Miller, 40, told LifeSiteNews in a extensive recent interview that her six year old daughter, Isabella, has said that she would like to kill herself following an unsupervised visit, and has complained of being forced to bathe naked with 44-year-old Janet Jenkins, according to Miller (see interview at http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2008/oct/08102707.html). Her Vermont attorney, Steven Crampton, reportedly plans to present sworn testimony of evidence of abuse during today’s hearing.

Obama Sees Supreme Court Justices as Champions of the Weak Over the Strong

Obama and the Law by Thomas Sowell - One of the biggest and most long-lasting "change" to expect if Barack Obama becomes President of the United States is in the kinds of federal judges he appoints. These include Supreme Court justices, as well as other federal justices all across the country, all of whom will have lifetime tenure. Senator Obama has stated very clearly what kinds of Supreme Court justices he wants-- those with "the empathy to understand what it's like to be poor, or African-American, or gay, or disabled, or old." ...The Constitution protected private property, precisely in order to prevent such abuses of political power, leaving a small exception when property is taken for "public use," such as the government's building a reservoir or a highway. But just by expanding "public use" to mean "public purpose"-- which can be anything-- the Supreme Court opened the floodgates. That's not "a living Constitution." That's a dying Constitution-- and an Obama presidency can kill it off.

How to Read the Constitution  The following is an excerpt from Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas's Wriston Lecture to the Manhattan Institute last Thursday 10/17/2008: As I have traveled across the country, I have been astounded just how many of our fellow citizens feel strongly about their constitutional rights but have no idea what they are, or for that matter, what the Constitution says. I am not suggesting that they become Constitutional scholars -- whatever that means. I am suggesting, however, that if one feels strongly about his or her rights, it does make sense to know generally what the Constitution says about them. It is at least as easy to understand as a cell phone contract -- and vastly more important. ... Let me put it this way; there are really only two ways to interpret the Constitution -- try to discern as best we can what the framers intended or make it up. No matter how ingenious, imaginative or artfully put, unless interpretive methodologies are tied to the original intent of the framers, they have no more basis in the Constitution than the latest football scores. To be sure, even the most conscientious effort to adhere to the original intent of the framers of our Constitution is flawed, as all methodologies and human institutions are; but at least originalism has the advantage of being legitimate and, I might add, impartial.

“[T]he ideology of that judge makes a big difference. That’s why I led the fight against Judge [Robert] Bork. Had he been on the court, I suspect there would be a lot of changes that I don’t like and the American people wouldn’t like, including everything from Roe v. Wade to issues relating to civil rights and civil liberties.”  Joe Biden, admitting to a litmus test for judges

“Under an Obama administration, it is not far-fetched to see the day when liberal federal judges decide that religious organizations must lose their tax exemptions should they refuse to employ homosexuals or others they regard as engaging in deviant behavior. Court challenges against those who believe homosexual behavior is sinful seem to be occurring with greater frequency... The aim of the gay rights lobby is to destroy all remnants of biblical values and societal norms. Gay rights advocates will take their agenda to federal courts as soon as sufficient numbers of liberal judges are there to give them what they want. Watch them vote in overwhelming numbers for Barack Obama. He is their future. This election is, among other things, about the future of the majority and whether we want this country to be shaped by the courts, or by ‘we the people’.” Cal Thomas

A New President Could Mean a New Court By Paul Strand - CBNNews.com - The gavel's about to come down to start the U.S. Supreme Court's new term. Lawyer Curt Levey, executive director of the judicial think-tank Committee for Justice, listed some of the cases coming before the court to CBN News: "Whether labor unions can negotiate away a worker's right to go to court; whether environmental protections override national security when people feel that Navy training exercises bothered dolphins; whether Title Nine -- the gender discrimination statute -- trumps the Constitution," he said. ...Because whoever gets elected president November 4, Obama or McCain, could well pick three and maybe as many as six new justices.

Next president will reshape U.S. courts from top to bottom - McCain used his May speech at Wake Forest University to drive home what his campaign terms his own "vision for the courts." This includes homage to a "strict constructionist philosophy" and a commitment to appoint Supreme Court justices like John Roberts and Samuel Alito . Obama, a former part-time University of Chicago law lecturer, takes a different direction. While praising their legal qualifications, Obama voted against both Roberts and Alito. In doing so, the Harvard Law School graduate shed light on his own judicial inclinations. "Legal process alone will not lead you to a rule of decision," Obama declared during debate over the Roberts nomination. "In those difficult cases, the critical ingredient is supplied by what is in the judge's heart."

The 'how-to' plan to criminalize Christianity 'Homosexuals know they must silence the church and that's what's behind this' WorldNetDaily - A growing movement that experts believe could end up in the criminalization of Christianity in the United States is being exposed in a new documentary being prepared for airing on October 26, officials at Coral Ridge Ministries have announced. "Hate Crime Laws" is a half-hour exposé that shows how Christians in America, Canada, Australia, and Sweden have been arrested and prosecuted for expressing opinions that are rooted in the Bible regarding homosexual conduct, Islam or other topics about which Scriptures express clear teachings. "On the surface, hate crime laws might sound like a good idea," said Jerry Newcombe, of Coral Ridge, who hosts the special. "After all, none of us advocates hatred or violence against another person. But if you look below the surface, suddenly you realize that these laws are really thought crime laws." The program will air on The Coral Ridge Hour time slot and local airing times are available online.

Socialism/Marxism/Communism Cradle-to-grave-nanny-state of entitlements

Liberty from God or mandated by the government?

Are Obama and the Democrats attempting to buy the sheeple as evident from piecing together the information below? Without a doubt, whether intentional or not, Democrats are intent on destroy the Republic for which it stands, and create a socialist/marxist/communist America?

Obama's 'Change' Is Socialism by Michael Reagan - Call Barack Obama’s program socialism, however, and he’ll swear on a stack of Qurans it isn’t. He calls it change. He says it’s fairness, not Marxism. Oh? How does he explain the proven fact that he has been wallowing in a sty surrounded by fervent socialists and sharing in their swill for most of his life? According to Fox’s Bill Sammon, his messiahship recalled that when he attended Occidental College in Los Angeles "to avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully," he wrote in "Dreams From My Father," his memoir. "The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists." And that was his milieu for all his years in Chicago. To anyone familiar with socialism, Obama’s programs fit comfortably within the pages of Karl Marx’s playbook, the root of which is the redistribution of the wealth, the key to the entire Obamian vault. What’s mine is yours, and he’s the middle man.

Obama Talks Nonsense on Tax Cuts Revenues will inevitably be diverted from Social Security. by William McGurn - Now we know: 95% of Americans will get a "tax cut" under Barack Obama after all. Those on the receiving end of a check will include the estimated 44% of Americans who will owe no federal income taxes under his plan. ...You have to admire the audacity. With one touch of the Obama magic, what otherwise would be described as taking money from Peter to pay Paul is now transformed into Paul's tax relief. Where a tax cut for payroll taxes paid will not in fact come from payroll taxes. And where all these plans come together under the rhetorical umbrella of "Making Work Pay." Not everyone is persuaded. Andrew Biggs is a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and a former Social Security Administration official who has written a great deal about Mr. Obama's plans on his blog (AndrewGBiggs.blogspot.com). He notes that to understand the unintended consequences, it helps to remember that while people at the bottom pay a higher percentage of their income in payroll taxes, they are accruing benefits in excess of what they pay in. ...And that leads us to the heart of this problem. If the government is going to give tax cuts to 44% of American based on their Social Security taxes -- without actually refunding to them the money they are paying into Social Security -- Mr. Obama will have to get the funds elsewhere. And this is where "general revenues" turns out to be a more agreeable way of saying "Other People's Money."

Web Archives Confirm Barack Obama Was Member Of Socialist 'New Party' In 1996

- From the October 1996 Update of the DSA 'New Party': "New Party members are busy knocking on doors, hammering down lawn signs, and phoning voters to support NP candidates this fall. Here are some of our key races...Illinois: Three NP-members won Democratic primaries last Spring and face off against Republican opponents on election day: Danny Davis (U.S. House), Barack Obama (State Senate) and Patricia Martin (Cook County Judiciary)."

-Beyond the archived web page from the Socialist New Party is the recognition by the "Progressive Populist" magazine in November 1996 that Obama was indeed an acknowledged member of the Socialist Party. "New Party members and supported candidates won 16 of 23 races, including an at-large race for the Little Rock, Ark., City Council, a seat on the county board for Little Rock and the school board for Prince George's County, Md. Chicago is sending the first New Party member to Congress, as Danny Davis, who ran as a Democrat, won an overwhelming 85% victory. New Party member Barack Obama was uncontested for a State Senate seat from Chicago."

-
The Democratic Socialist Party of America published in their July/August Edition of New Ground 47 Newsletter. "The Chicago New Party is increasely becoming a viable political organization that can make a different in Chicago politics. It is crucial for a political organization to have a solid infrastructure and visible results in its political program. The New Party has continued to solidify this base... the NP's '96 Political Program has been enormously successful with 3 of 4 endorsed candidates winning electoral primaries. All four candidates attended the NP membership meeting on April 11th to express their gratitude. Danny Davis, winner in the 7th Congressional District, invited NPers to join his Campaign Steering Committee. Patricia Martin, who won the race for Judge in 7th Subcircuit Court, explained that due to the NP she was able to network and get experienced advice from progressives like Davis. Barack Obama, victor in the 13th State Senate District, encouraged NPers to join in his task forces on Voter Education and Voter Registration."

-
Obama's membership within the 'New Party' is disturbing as even Green Party members attacked the DSA and New Party as nothing more than a fringe group. The New Party had hoped to implement Socialist Rule in the United States and was established to counteract the influence of a Democratic Party that they viewed as too moderate and too centered. Now it seems that nearly 10 years after the socialist party fell apart, their strategy of upward growth has reached the White House. Obama's ties to the DSA's New Party is beyond just an association it is outright membership, as clearly defined by the parties August 1996 newsletter, in an outright Socialist organization.

Communists for Obama: Stalinist tactics used to silence critics Wes Vernon - "Our time has come...I can see a role for the Communist Party USA in the next period." Those words from Libero Della Piana, an operative speaking at the headquarters of the Communist Party USA and eagerly anticipating an Obama presidency. In most parts of America, getting money back on taxes you haven't paid sounds a lot like welfare. Ah, say the Obama people, you forget: Even those who pay no income taxes pay payroll taxes for Social Security. Under the Obama plan, they say, these Americans would get an income tax credit up to $500 based on what they are paying into Social Security. Just two little questions: If people are going to get a tax refund based on what they pay into Social Security, then we're not really talking about income tax relief, are we? And if what we're really talking about is payroll tax relief, doesn't that mean billions of dollars in lost revenue for a Social Security trust fund that is already badly underfinanced?

Richard Viguerie: Obama's 'Spread the Wealth' Blunder Reveals His Real Goal for America - Socialism - Barack Obama's recent blunder- his admission that his policy is to "spread the wealth" of people like plumbers - "encapsulates everything Senator Obama believes about economics," Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman of ConservativeHQ.com, said. "On taxes, on spending, on regulation, on redistribution of wealth, the Obama economic policy can be summed up in two words: Marxism / Socialism. ...During an Obama campaign stop in Ohio, a plumber told the Senator: "Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn't it? ... I've worked hard. I'm a plumber. I work 10-12 hours a day and I'm buying this company and I'm going to continue working that way. I'm getting taxed more and more while fulfilling the American dream." Obama told the plumber that the higher taxes he would pay would be good for society. "... My attitude is that if the economy's good for folks from the bottom up, it's gonna be good for everybody. ... I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."

Comrade Barack Hussein Obama By Mark Alexander  - Obama has the dubious distinction of being ranked the most liberal of the “useful idiots” in the Senate—apologist for socialist political and economic agendas. And it took him only half a term to achieve that ill repute. That puts him to the left of his primary benefactors, Ted Kennedy and John Kerry. (By contrast, his running mate, Joe Biden, has taken 36 years to achieve his status as the Senate’s third most liberal member.) ...Obama is the consummate “useful idiot,” a socialist who believes not only that the will of the people should be subject to that of the state, but, likewise, the economy should be state controlled through taxation and regulation.

Do Facts Matter? by Thomas Sowell - Abraham Lincoln said, "You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you can't fool all the people all the time." Unfortunately, the future of this country, as well as the fate of the Western world, depends on how many people can be fooled on election day, just a few weeks from now. Right now, the polls indicate that a whole lot of the people are being fooled a whole lot of the time.

Obama's Socialist Agenda -- Is Anyone Listening? - As reported by Fox News, during a campaign event in Ohio, Obama was peppered with questions from a local plumber who asked, "Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn't it?" The plumber was complaining (as I often do) that he is "being taxed more and more for fulfilling the American dream." Obama's response? He gave the plumber a classic dose of socialism: "It's not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance for success too," Obama responded. "My attitude is that if the economy's good for folks from the bottom up, it's gonna be good for everybody ... I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody." Spread the wealth around? This is America, isn't it? Redistributing the "wealth" is a classic tenet of Marxist philosophy. Communist China, the former Soviet Union, Cuba, and so on.... they all believe in government ownership of basically everything. Hard work, initiative, expertise... none of that is rewarded. Instead, the efforts of the talented and the hard-working are taken from them and given to those who don't work as hard. The result is a decrease in productivity, not to mention the self-fulfillment that comes from being rewarded for a job well done. And this is exactly what Barack Obama wants to do!

Photo Discovered Of Obama With Fellow Chicago Socialist Party Members - A photo just surfaced from 1996 featuring a group of New Party Socialist candidates posing together after impressive election wins in Chicago. Obama actively sought the New Party s endorsement and urged the Marxist members to join his campaigns. The New Party went so far as to claim Obama as an official member of their organization. The New Party socialists were affiliated with the Democratic Socialists of America.

The Glories of Socialism - Nancy Pelosi said a few weeks ago that we should nationalize the oil companies. Well, Hugo Chavez has already done that and perhaps we should examine the results.

Political Correctness   Lacking Biblical moral virtue on Abortion, Education & more...

Liberty from God or mandated by the government?

"Politically Correct" means using unrighteous deception and requires a lack of Biblical Moral Virtue. Being "Politically Correct" is not only foolish, but dangerous.

Lies by omission: Media and Obama withhold truth from voters  by Felicia Benamon - It's time to cut through to the truth since some representatives of the media are shying away from it. And Barack Obama sure won't disclose the truth about his socialist ideas. These days, he's covering up his true intentions as he's sounding more and more like a liberal trying to espouse Republican values to fool the American public. He is for the working class, the "average Joe" in that he says he wants to cut taxes. Barack Obama has left quite a bit out of the picture, lying by omission. The media is complicit in backing Barack Obama. All of the networks (except maybe FOXNEWS) slant their news to favor Obama. They give John McCain his props, but are willingly shilling for Barack Obama. Here and there, the truth does come forth. The media calls them "attacks"; I call it revealing the truth. CNN's Glenn Beck ventured a look into Michelle Obama's comments during a North Carolina campaign stop. He sees the plan that Barack and Michelle Obama has for America and called it a "socialized agenda for America."

Media Refuses To Scrutinize Obama's Background And Socialist Agenda By Carol Devine-Molin - Unfortunately, the American people cannot readily obtain the information they require to make a fully informed decision on Barack Obama, since the Leftist mainstream media lies and obfuscates for Obama, while regularly denigrating John McCain and his wife Cindy. The New York Times hit piece on Cindy McCain dated October 17, 2008 was refuted by her lawyer who also said, "It is worth noting that you have not employed your investigative assets looking into Michelle Obama. You have not tried to find Barack Obama's drug dealer that he wrote about in his book, Dreams of My Father. Nor have you interviewed his poor relatives in Kenya and determined why Barack Obama has not rescued them. Thus, there is a terrific lack of balance here." Instead of members of the mainstream media fulfilling their duty to conduct fair-minded investigative reporting, they are, in effect, a mammoth propaganda machine that's running interference for Barack Obama. Think about it: The news media refuses to conduct even a basic examination on Obama regarding: his relationships with militant and unsavory characters [Bill Ayers, Tony Rezko, Frank Marshall Davis, etc.]; the nature of the grants that he funneled to various organizations while he sat on the boards of the Woods Foundation and the Annenberg Foundation; his admitted drug use; his full medical records; his college years in New York; his massive fundraising and support for Kenyan Marxist thug Raila Odinga who is implicated in thousands of murders; his campaign coffers that are being flooded with illegal foreign monies; his membership during the nineties in the New Party that was established by the Democratic Socialists of America; his significant connections with ACORN [including an $800,000 contribution to the group] which is systematically perpetrating voter fraud throughout the US; or his efforts to pressure Iraqi officials to delay troop withdrawals until after President Bush left office, which could very well be a violation of the Logan Act.

The Obama Debate Every American Should See by Terence Jeffrey - "Sen. O'Malley," Obama said near the beginning of the discussion, "the testimony during the committee indicated that one of the key concerns was -- is that there was a method of abortion, an induced abortion, where the -- the fetus or child, as -- as some might describe it, is still temporarily alive outside the womb."  …"And one of the concerns that came out in the testimony was the fact that they were not being properly cared for during that brief period of time that they were still living," Obama continued. Obama made three crucial concessions here: the legislation was about 1) a human being, who was 2) "alive" and 3) "outside the womb." He also used an odd redundancy: "temporarily alive." Is there another type of human? ..."No. 1," said Obama, "whenever we define a pre-viable fetus as a person that is protected by the equal protection clause or other elements of the Constitution, what we're really saying is, in fact, that they are persons that are entitled to the kinds of protections that would be provided to a -- a child, a nine-month-old -- child that was delivered to term." ..."I mean, it -- it would essentially bar abortions," said Obama, "because the equal protection clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an antiabortion statute." …For Obama, whether or not a temporarily-alive-outside-the-womb little girl is a "person" entitled to constitutional rights is not determined by her humanity, her age or even her place in space relative to her mother's uterus. It is determined by a whether a doctor has been trying to kill her.

“Does it matter if Barack Obama is for sex education in kindergarten? It matters more than most things that are called ‘the real issues.’... Because one of the biggest and realest of all issues is the outlook and character of the President of the United States... What does being in favor of sex education in kindergarten tell us about the outlook and character of this largely unknown man who has suddenly appeared on the national scene to claim the highest office in the land? It gives us an insight into the huge gulf between Senator Obama’s election-year image and what he has actually been for and against over the preceding decades. It also shows the huge gulf between his values and those of most other Americans. Many Americans would consider sex education for kindergartners to be absurd but there is more to it than that. What is called ‘sex education,’ whether for kindergartners or older children, is not education about biology but indoctrination in values that go against the traditional values that children learn in their families and in their communities. Obviously, the earlier this indoctrination begins, the better its chances of overriding traditional values... Sex education for kindergartners is just one of many issues on which Barack Obama has lined up consistently on the side of arrogant elitists of the Far Left.”  -Thomas Sowell

Gay Marriage Opponents "Thank" Obama CBS Evening News: Californians Who Hope To Ban Gay Marriage Are Counting On Obama Voters To Give Them A Boost Obama is expected to bring African-American voters out in record numbers, and those voters are seen as often being more conservative on issues involving homosexuality.

University President Warns of Loss of Intellectual and Religious Freedom and Numerous College Closures Oklahoma Wesleyan University President, Dr. Everett Piper says his concerns stem directly from Obama's own words. "In Obama's July 1, 2008 speech in Ohio the Senator contends that if an organization benefits from federal grants it can't make any staffing or hiring decisions 'on the basis of religion.' Furthermore, on his official campaign web page Barack Obama clarifies that under his presidency 'religious organizations that receive federal dollars cannot discriminate with respect to hiring for government-funded social service programs; and [faith-based organizations] can only use taxpayer's dollars on secular programs and initiatives.' Finally, in the Saddleback Civil Forum with Rick Warren, Obama commented specifically on Christian colleges and said 'When it comes to the programs that are federally funded, then we do have to be careful to make sure that we are not creating a situation where people are being discriminated against [in hiring practices].'" Piper says the problem in Obama's statements is this: "Almost every college in the nation - religious or secular - has students who qualify for and receive federal funds in the form of grants, loans, and scholarships. Students have always been able to use these dollars to go to the college of their choice. But Obama's position clearly indicates that this freedom could be in jeopardy and that students may only be able to use such grants and loans to attend schools that are secular in their worldview and behavioral codes." Piper goes further: "My question is this (and Senator Obama does not provide an answer): Will students be prohibited by law from using their financial aid to attend any school that hires faculty in a manner that is consistent with its Christian faith, values and theological distinctions? Will the funding that flows from the student to the institution - funding that has been available since the GI Bill of the 1940s - be averted? Will students lose their ability to attend a Christian college and will the colleges by default lose a primary source of revenue?" "If so" says Piper "hundreds of colleges and universities across the land would be forced into immediate financial exigency and imminent closure."

Obama Sends His Kids to Private School But Opposes School Choice Vouchers (CNSNews.com) – As chairman of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge from 1995 to 2001, Barack Obama helped distribute $49.2 million to help improve Chicago’s public schools, but two studies showed the money had little or no impact on improving public education. Despite his work to improve Chicago’s public schools, Obama sends his two daughters to a prestigious private school in Chicago – and he opposes school vouchers, which would allow parents to send their kids to the school of their choice.

Criminals for Gun Control (2-1/2 minute video) - Tell all your anti-gun elected officials to place a "This is a gun-free home" sticker on their doors and windows, because citizens who legally own guns create a hazardous work environment for criminals (who by the way, being law breakers, ignore the laws those elected lawmakers create).

Obama and the Attempt to Destroy the Second Amendment - During Obama’s tenure, the Joyce Foundation board planned and implemented a program targeting the Supreme Court. The work began five years into Obama’s directorship, when the Foundation had experience in turning its millions into anti-gun “grassroots” organizations, but none at converting cash into legal scholarship. The plan’s objective was bold: the judicial obliteration of the Second Amendment. Joyce’s directors found a vulnerable point. When judges cannot rely upon past decisions, they sometimes turn to law review articles.

Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms Calls on Obama to repudiate, reject Brady Campaign Endorsement - If Democrat Barack Obama truly supports gun rights and the Second Amendment, he should immediately repudiate and reject today’s endorsement by the anti-gun Brady Campaign, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said. “By accepting an endorsement from the nation’s leading gun ban organization,” said CCRKBA Legislative Affairs Director Joe Waldron, “Barack Obama would be declaring to every gun owner in America that he has lied to them all these months during the presidential campaign. If he accepts this endorsement, Obama may as well spit on the Second Amendment.” The Brady Campaign announced its endorsement Monday by noting that Obama and his running mate, anti-gun Sen. Joe Biden from Delaware, will “strengthen” the Brady Law, and would once again outlaw commonly-owned semi-automatic sport/utility rifles.

Economy & Taxes, Healthcare Free market with oversight or Government Run?

Liberty from God or mandated by the government?

"The thought of modern industry in the hands of Christian charity is a dream worth dreaming. The thought of industry in the hands of paganism is a nightmare beyond imagining. The choice between the two is upon us." Theodore Roosevelt

The choice between the two is once again upon us...

The difference between Obama and McCain on taxes is that where the two do propose minor changes, Obama wants to use the tax code to redistribute wealth while McCain wants to use the tax code to create it.

Reviewing the Obama and McCain tax plans The Heritage Foundation’s Center for Data Analysis has conducted an in-depth study comparing the tax policies of the two leading Presidential contenders, Senators Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.).

 Taxes & Economy - Tax cuts vs. Tax hikes - If you want government to replace God, if you want a government that will have citizens dependent from the cradle to the grave upon yet more government programs that fail then vote for socialist who are masking as Democrats. If you prefer a free market driven economy, personal independence, personal responsibility, personal commitment, personal accountability, self-discipline, self-motivation, over complete reliance on a government that is incapable of meeting every need, then don't vote for any Democrat or Green Party candidate.

“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.”  Thomas Jefferson

"You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away men's initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." - President Abraham Lincoln, a founder of the Republican Party

“It’s not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they’ve got a chance for success too. I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” - Barack Obama to a small business owner at a recent rally

Ten Myths About Budget Deficits and Debt - MYTH #1: The 1998–2001 budget surpluses resulted from courageous sacrifices by President Clinton and the Republican Congress. Fact: The end of the Cold War and the tax receipts from an economic and dot-com boom balanced the budget. MYTH #2: The post-2001 budget deficits were caused by President Bush's tax cuts. Fact: National security, domestic spending, and economic factors played a larger role MYTH #3: The 2001 and 2003 tax cuts cancelled out the $5.6 trillion projected 10-year budget surplus. Fact: Those budget surplus estimates were based on unrealistic estimates. (For the full report, details, and charts, see: http://www.heritage.org/Research/Budget/bg2178.cfm)

Just Facts Publishes Article on Talking Down the Economy The public mindset is a significant factor in the nation's economy. Explore how the media and politicians influence public opinion on economic matters during presidential elections

While Obama spins his claim that 95% of citizens will not pay taxes; Barack Obama says he will give 95 percent of all American workers a tax cut but does not mention that his plan would send checks to tens of millions of tax filers who pay no personal income taxes - payments that critics say look "suspiciously like welfare."

The Case Against Barack Obama, Part 1 by Larry Elder - Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama promises to "cut taxes for 95 percent of American workers." That's not possible. Why? More than 30 percent pay nothing in federal income taxes. Obama comes up with this number by calling tax credits "tax cuts." One can debate whether these things are good or bad, but they are not tax cuts. McCain offers refundable tax credits for health care, as well as other credits, but he doesn't insult the intelligence of the American people by calling them "tax cuts." When Obama's credits go to people who pay no federal income taxes or who pay less than the value of the credit, they are not "tax cuts." They are transfers of money from one pocket to another, or redistributions of wealth, but they are not tax cuts.

Obama stated that he would not raise taxes on people earning less than $250,000. However, he voted in the Senate to let the Bush tax cuts expire. Taking away the Bush tax cuts is no different than RAISING your taxes. It will not just raise the taxes of those earning over $250,000 it will be for EVERY American--100% across the board.

If elected president, how would Obama spend your money? A public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption says it has obtained documents detailing earmarks submitted by Barack Obama on behalf of his family and political supporters during his time in the Illinois senate. According to Judicial Watch, the documents were obtained under the Illinois Freedom of Information Act. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton notes the documents reveal that Obama really took care of his friends and family members with taxpayer money. "Twenty-five thousand dollars to his wife's cousin, $100,000 to a garden project in Illinois that went nowhere and was wasted, $100,000 to the radical Catholic Priest Father Pfleger, $75,000 to an organization called FORUM, which is run by a group of people that, after they got the grant, gave him thousands of dollars in campaign contributions," Fitton recounts.

Healthcare - Protecting doctors vs. Protecting predatory trial lawyers: If you want the same problems the British and Canadians are experiencing vote for a Obama. If you want doctors returning to prioritizing patient care over HMO or government mandates, please consider McCain's plan.

No, Barack, Medical Care is Not a 'Right' by Dr. Lee Hieb  - No, health care is not a right. It is a service, just like the food service, or transportation. They may be important to out lives -- hey, food is more critical than medicine. But they are not rights. We cannot demand food at the grocery store, and pay according to our ability. We cannot force a care dealer to sell us a care at “Medicare” discount rates because we need transportation to get us to work. ...Viewed from 30,000 feet a cesspool may look like a sylvan lake. Sweden looks reasonably good if you look at global numbers such as perinatal mortality -- but this does not disclose the nightmare in Swedish Emergency Rooms where children die for lack of nurses to administer an IV. In Britain, only 42% of patients had brain imaging to confirm their diagnosis of stroke within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms,-- a number they themselves deemed "unacceptably low". By contrast, a study in North Carolina was distressed that only 11% of people had a CT scan within 25 minutes! Over 44% had a CT within 2 hours, and by 24 hours over 60-70% of patients in the US will have received a CT scan.

Obama and Health-Care Equity - For reasons of historical accident and lobbying clout, individuals who buy policies get no tax benefits and pay with after-tax dollars. Mr. McCain is proposing to make the tax benefits available to everyone, regardless of how they purchase their insurance. He would offer a refundable tax credit of $5,000 for families, $2,500 for individuals, and the benefit isn't dependent on where people work or what they earn. Some would stick with their current job-based coverage. Given the option, others -- especially the uninsured, armed with new health dollars -- would decide to buy coverage on their own. That in turn would stimulate a market for more affordable insurance. Mr. Obama doesn't want to let people make this choice. He even claims it would amount to "taxing your health-care benefits for the first time in history," which is a wild distortion. His point seems to be that because companies wouldn't have to pay for health care, they could raise wages and thus taxes would also increase for workers on those higher incomes. But doesn't Mr. Obama want higher wages?

Wake Up, America By INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY -How many times have you been told by soaring, almost hypnotic oratory that "the direct causes of our financial crisis and subprime real estate loan mess were the greedy banks, big corporations and the failed economic policies of George Bush"? It's common to blame the one in power. This time, however, it's 100% wrong.  ... the Bush administration repeatedly went to Congress in 2004, 2005 and 2006 to obtain stronger oversight and some limits on Freddie and Fannie's reckless subprime lending. And each time, it was voted down by Democrats in Congress, led by Frank, now chairman of the Financial Services Committee. Bottom line: This whole mess was another Big Government program created, designed and run by Democrats. It started with great intentions but resulted in typically awful unintended consequences that materially hurt the very people they were supposed to help. ...So who do you think history tells us may be the most experienced person we can trust to be commander-in-chief and deal with Iranian terrorists with nukes; Putin's resurgent Russia that backs Iran and wants to give nuclear capability to Venezuela, re-arm Cuba and Nicaragua; an al-Qaida that wants to strike America again; and, let's not forget, up-and-coming China?

Warnings from leaders of virtue "Is there no virtue among us? If there be not, we are in a wretched situation."

Liberty from God or mandated by the government?

“We cannot afford to differ on the question of honesty if we expect our republic permanently to endure. Honesty is not so much a credit as an absolute prerequisite to efficient service to the public. Unless a man is honest, we have no right to keep him in public life; it matters not how brilliant his capacity.” Theodore Roosevelt

"Is there no virtue among us? If there be not, we are in a wretched situation. No theoretical checks-no form of government can render us secure. To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea, if there be sufficient virtue and intelligence in the community, it will be exercised in the selection of these men. So that we do not depend on their virtue, or put confidence in our rulers, but in the people who are to choose them." James Madison

"Statesmen my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for Liberty, but it is Religion and Morality alone, which can establish the Principles upon which Freedom can securely stand. ... The only foundation of a free Constitution, is pure Virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People, in a great Measure, than they have it now, They may change their Rulers, and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting Liberty." John Adams

“Now, more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If the next centennial does not find us a great nation . . .it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.” James Garfield 20th President

"A vote is like a rifle: its usefulness depends upon the character of the user." Theodore Roosevelt

California Election 2008 notes:

Next week, voters are considering measures in 33 states on everything from prostitution to casinos. This week, we'll be highlighting the key social questions in your state. California: Proposition 4 would create a limited statewide parental notification law. If it passes, doctors would be required to call home before performing an abortion on a minor girl. Colorado: Also known as the Personhood Amendment, Question 48 would define a "person" as "any human being from the moment of fertilization." If successful, this initiative could have a significant impact on future abortion laws. Michigan: Proposal 2 would allow human embryos created for fertility purposes to be used for research, leading to the destruction of these embryos and undoing a 1978 law banning the killing of human embryos. South Dakota: Except in the cases of rape, incest, or threats to the mother's health, Measure 11 would amend the state's constitution to protect the unborn in South Dakota. Washington: I-1000 would legalize assisted suicide, allowing doctors to order lethal drug overdoses for patients with six months or less to live. Family members would not have to be informed.

California Elementary School Parents Blindsided by Homosexual “Coming Out Day” Discovery of homosexual event at school lends steam to pro-marriage Proposition 8 campaign By Tim Waggoner -  (LifeSiteNews.com) – Parents of students attending an elementary school in Hayward, California, are in a frenzy after learning the school allegedly made no effort to inform them their children were to participate in today's homosexual "Coming Out Day" school event, reports the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI), a legal firm specializing in the defense of religious freedoms and parental rights. Parents of children at Faith Ringgold School of Art and Science were shocked to see a poster announcing the homosexual event, as they had not received any previous notification. In fact, according PJI, the school specifically decided not to inform parents ahead of time. Brad Dacus, president of PJI, commented on the issue, attributing the existence of such an event in a school in part to the legalization of same-sex "marriages" in California. "Do we need any further proof that gay activists will target children as early as possible?" he asked. "Opponents of traditional marriage keep telling us that Prop. 8 has nothing to do with education. In reality, they want to push the gay lifestyle on kindergartners, and we can only imagine how much worse it will be if Prop. 8 is defeated. This is not a scenario most Californians want replayed in their elementary schools." ...When one mother asked her daughter earlier this week what she was learning in kindergarten at the school, the 5-year-old replied, "We're learning to be allies." The mother also learned that her daughter's kindergarten classroom is regularly used during lunchtime for meetings of a Gay Straight Alliance club. ...Faith Ringgold seems to have set the promotion of the homosexual agenda as a priority on its 2008 calendar, as several other pro-homosexual events are slated in the coming weeks. For instance, several parents have noticed numerous posters around the school promoting talks on the family scheduled for later this week; all of the posters, however, depict only homosexual "families." As well, On November 20, the school will host TransAction Gender-Bender Read-Aloud, where students will hear adapted tales such as "Jane and the Beanstalk."

A MUST-See video on the lessons that will be taught in every school if same sex marriage is legalized in California and elsewhere. Based on what has already happened in Massachusetts.

Proposition 8: Who's Really Lying? Public Records Show Proposition 8 Opponents Want Gay Marriage to be Taught in Public Schools – 'The Earlier the Better'

Teachers union donates $1 million to oppose Proposition 8 The gift from the California Teachers Assn. comes as an internal poll by opponents of the initiative to ban gay marriage reveals that the campaign has not raised as much as supporters.

What same-sex "marriage" has done to Massachusetts It's far worse than most people realize by Brian Camenker - Anyone who thinks that same-sex “marriage” is a benign eccentricity which won’t affect the average person should consider what it has done in Massachusetts. It’s become a hammer to force the acceptance and normalization of homosexuality on everyone. And this train is moving fast. What has happened so far is only the beginning. The public schools - Public health - Domestic violence - Legal profession - Adoption of children to homosexual “married” couples - Government mandates - The public square - The media. Homosexual “marriage” hangs over society like a hammer with the force of law. And it’s only just begun. It’s pretty clear that the homosexual movement’s obsession with marriage is not because large numbers of them actually want to marry each other. Research shows that homosexual relationships are fundamentally dysfunctional on many levels, and “marriage” as we know it isn’t something they can achieve, or even desire. (In fact, over the last three months, the Sunday Boston Globe’s marriage section hasn’t had any photos of homosexual marriages. In the beginning it was full of them.) This is about putting the legal stamp of approval on homosexuality and imposing it with force throughout the various social and political institutions of a society that would never accept it otherwise. To the rest of America: You've been forewarned.

Arizona Election 2008 notes:

Arizona's Pro-Marriage Prop. 102 Campaign Showing Strong Momentum By Jonquil Frankham - (LifeSiteNews.com) – Recently the New Haven chapter of the Knights of Columbus donated $100,000 to yesformarriage.com, the group campaigning in support of Arizona’s Proposition 102 – the latest in a series of generous donations that have significantly bolstered the chances that marriage will be protected in the state come Nov. 4. Proposition 102 is a motion to write the true definition of marriage into the state constitution. Same-sex “marriage” is already illegal under Arizona state law, but a constitutional amendment would prevent the possibility that it will be made legal at any point in the future. In particular, such an action would prevent activist judges from arbitrarily redefining marriage – as has happened in the three other states where same-sex “marriage” is currently legal. Proposition 102 is worded: “Only a union of one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in this state.”

Massachusetts Election 2008 notes:

Massachusetts General Election - Nov. 4, 2008 State races - guide & analysis

1. US Senator: Jeffrey K. Beatty (R) vs. John F. Kerry (D)

2. US Representative –
    Nathan Bech– 1District vs. John Olver (D)
    Earl Sholley – 4th District vs. Barney Frank (D) - See comment below.
    Richard Baker – 6th District vs. John Tierney (D)
    John Cunningham – 7th District vs. Ed Markey (D)

Earl Sholley's closing debate statement summarized his points: "Barney Frank is a social engineer who forced lenders to make bad loans. He is the poster boy for big government and big disasters. Now it is the financial crisis. In 1989 it was the Frank Amendment and later the 9/11 terrorist attack after he had single-handedly gutted our immigration and naturalization laws. He voted against the Amber Alert bill, one of only 25 members of Congress to do so out of 535, and the only one from MA to do so. He wants hate crimes legislation, but he hates the Boy Scouts of America. This Eagle Scout does not know anyone else who hates this revered institution. He is like Nero, playing the fiddle, while our institutions are at risk. His priorities are Internet gambling and decriminalizing small amounts of medical marijuana. His committee had the most jurisdiction in this financial mess because they are the direct representatives of the People. The voters trusted him to do the right thing, and he let them down."

Sen. Scott Brown is major target of homosexual lobby in election: Governor, Attorney General, high-profile politicians supporting (and raising money for) lesbian activist challenger. Sen. Scott Brown (R-Wrentham) is the legislator the homosexual lobby loves to hate. Again this year, they're ganging up to try to unseat him. A little-known lesbian activist named Sara Orozco with no political experience who's rarely even bothered to vote up till now is suddenly attracting a lot of money and attention from the liberal elites. Earlier this month a fundraiser for Orozco at the downtown Omni Parker House included Attorney General Martha Coakley, Senate President Therese Murray, Suffolk County Sheriff Andrea Cabral, and House Majority Whip Lida Harkins. Other supporters include US Sen. John Kerry and state senators Pat Jehlen, Thomas McGee, and Steven Tolman.
