America, The Beautiful

I noticed some people complaining about the Coca-Cola Superbowl commercial doing America The Beautiful bilingual. I don't really have much of a problem with that, after all, America is the great melting pot, but I do have a problem when public schools ban good old fashioned American patriotism, including the name America itself. It sounds like a joke or some nutty conspiracy, but it's really happening in Colorado and Michigan, in the name of anti-colonialism. Our nation is literally being turned inside out.

It reminds me of Obama refusing to wear the flag on his lapel. It is not just a matter of being ashamed of America or Obama's favorite quotation of Saul Alinsky, "The world as it is" and "The world as it should be...", this time it is a matter of freedom of speech. But then, when we ditch the US constitution, what is free speech? It no longer has any value. Well, here's a newsflash: Our nation was not founded on the philosophy of sexual liberation nor was it founded on economic equality, which has proven unsustainable in the communist bloc. As for America, our freedom and liberty was recognized as having been derived from the Creator, not the government, the government could merely choose whether or not to recognize it. Think about it!

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed..." -Declaration of Independence 

Just what entails Obama's platform of "HOPE and CHANGE"? Many have speculated as to the exact political philosophy that is the driving force behind our president, but more and more I am recognizing that Dinesh D'Souza was right in his general assessment. I know that there is certainly a strong communist influence, but the anti-colonialism is moving front and center, another tool in the arsenal of the Democratic Party. If the new anti-colonization faction has its way, we will no longer be the United States of America and the next flag burning with include the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.

Why I Cannot Vote for Obama

Romney certainly isn't my top choice, but Obama isn't even a possibility for me. Obama strong-arms states who refuse to fund planned parenthood. (1) He smuggled guns across the border to create a gun problem to impose tighter gun restrictions. (2) Obama Care is becoming our worst nightmare. (3) Today my family just received notice that our deductions will be doubled, thanks to Obama Care. Obama has appealed to human dignity in politics and the public square, only to falter in those special occasions when he could have made a real difference, but he was either too afraid to reach across the isle with an outstretched hand or he just plain didn't care. (4) He ran on an anti-Bush campaign only to move troops from Iraq to Afghanistan and now we've forgotten all about Guantanamo Bay. It has been said that he has only recently changed his position in favor of homosexual marriage, but his official 2008 platform was to repeal The Defense of Marriage Act, straight and simple. Once in office Obama rejected it as a national law and did his best to have it abolished. (5) Because of the one failed green energy handout to what is formerly known as Solyndra, every US citizen immediately inherited an additional 2 million dollars debt EACH. People complain about how Romney is a Mormon, when they have evidently forgotten that Obama has talks out of both sides of his mouth, claiming to be a Christian and a Muslim. The truth is, Obama's Christian heritage is that of Black Liberation Theology which is closely associated with the Nation of Islam, both of which are racially driven in anti-white supremacy. Four of our Supreme Court justices are at least seventy-four years old and will be all the more likely to vacate their seats during their next term of office. If you have seen how the various decisions have been narrowly split over the years (such as the Boy Scouts being allowed to retain their right as a private club to determine who they think should be allowed to be leaders of impressionable young boys in a vote of 5 to 4), then you know how important it is to keep Obama out of office. Obama does not prioritize the religious beliefs of individuals, churches or private organizations. His recent mandate that every single employer will have to pay for medical procedures even if it is against their conscience and religious beliefs is evidence enough of this. (6)





5. Attorneys General, Edwin Meese and John Ashcroft, called the DOJ's decision not to defend DOMA section 3 "an unprecedented and ill-advised departure from over two centuries of Executive Branch practice" and "an extreme and unprecedented deviation from the historical norm".

The Election: Focusing on the Supreme Court

I received an email a few days ago, from Focus on the Family that I thought important enough to post. We all know about the Supreme Court appointment that was filled by President Obama. It is quite likely that more will follow in the next few years. The Supreme Court has been almost evenly split, only slightly weighing in as more conservative constitutionalists. That could all change with a single court appointment. 

If you do not recognize the seriousness of this, reflect on just one court decision that was made while Bill Clinton was in office. It was during the time when the Boy Scouts were coming under increasing fire for their laws which prohibit homosexuals from being leaders in their program. The Boy Scouts of America is a private organization, not a public institution. That is important here. There was a case that went all the way to the Supreme court that could have had dire implications on all private organizations throughout the country, forcing them to admit homosexuals into leadership positions, regardless of their fundamental and religious beliefs on the matter. Thankfully, the court sided with the Boy Scouts in a 5 to 4 decision. The constitution hung by a thread.

Now on to the report from Focus on the Family:
Four members of the U.S. Supreme Court are at least 74 years old, making it very likely that the next president will make two or even three appointments to the Court in the coming four to eight years. Right now, the general balance of the court is more conservative than liberal on many of the biblical issues we care about. That composition could certainly shift leftward with the appointment of justices whose judicial philosophy leans toward creating law rather than interpreting the U.S. Constitution.

So the question is, since Romney and Obama have more similarities than we would like to think about, does your vote really matter? I think it does. Even though the Supreme Court really upset me in its recent decision to reject an appeal by two university, student led, religious groups who wanted to limit their voting membership to those who shared the same beliefs and values. Nevertheless, I think that if we allow extreme liberals such as Obama, to have another four years to rework the court, it would be to our own peril. Yes, our religious freedom is at stake. And if you have any doubt, I recommend reading The Criminalization of Christianity by Janet Folger.

Romney vs. Obama: The Religious Debate

Although I do not decide who to vote for purely because of a candidate's religious beliefs, I wanted to chime in on the subject. Yes, Romney is a Mormon and they do have some very peculiar religious beliefs which at one time incorporated racism, but only as a sub-text. They definitely do not hold traditional orthodox Christian beliefs.

Obama, on the other hand is much more difficult to pin down. Sometimes he has been caught embracing Islamic teachings, while at the same time reportedly claiming to be a Christian. Even at that, his Christian heritage is that of Black Liberation Theology which is rooted in racism and closely associated with that of the Nation of Islam. It is no more Biblically centered than Mormonism. Practically speaking, however, Obama functions as a pure secularist on the public level. What is secularism but the attempt to govern and make public decisions completely devoid of any religious beliefs and "sacred" books (which is entirely impossible, and I might add, a bit self-contradictory--it is impossible to be value free and neutral as the secularists try to argue).

At any rate, one thing is certain, to call Obama an orthodox, Bible thumping, traditional Christian who identifies himself with the apostle's creed, is just plain wrong. The fact is, neither Romney nor Obama are Christians in the traditional sense. Both candidates have been severely criticized not only by the opposition, but even by their own political allies for not maintaining their supposed religious convictions. Take Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam, for example. During a sermon he publicly rebuked President Obama for his endorsement of legalizing same sex marriage. This is regardless of the fact that the two have a history of working together, at the Million Man March, for example.

For more insights as to Obama's connection to Islam, see Conservapedia's article. For the racist and cultic rhetoric of the Nation of Islam, straight from “A Black Theology of Liberation” by James H. Cone (1970), you can check it out here

Meanwhile, here's an interesting chart I found that compares Jewish Orthodoxy with Conservative Mormonism that is friendly to both.

Obamacare: Tax the One Percent?

Obama Care: Tax the rich? Better think twice. You don't get something for nothing. Somebody always has to pay the price. It may be indirectly, but you should know that the 1% cannot support the rest, we will ALL pay for it! BTW, printing money without being backed up is nothing more than a flat tax. In the end, inflation will balance out government welfare and handouts. Run-away inflation has already been predicted. 

Should the government bring relief to the widows, the fatherless and those who literally can't take care of their self? If it really is a Bible based society, then I would say yes. But, does that justify corporate takeovers by the government and radical communism in our health care system? The government is employing more people than the private industry while it regulates its citizen's to death. Obama Care will put undue strain on small struggling businesses while playing the slight of hand card by saying it will only effect the rich. 

Obama has tried to project himself in many images, including that of Ronald Reagan, but he has more in common with F.D. Roosevelt. While FDR is remembered by many as the man who saved America from the great depression, there is evidence of this honor being misguided. As a matter of fact, under his presidency America suffered a second great depression which can be directly attributed to his misjudgements. FDR implemented the most severe taxes and regulations that America has ever seen. Thankfully, the supreme court knocked down some of his laws.

Determining First Amendment Rights

NBC News Chicago, reported that Police arrested two reporters saying, "Your presence is creating a scene." The officer was quoted as saying, "Your First Amendment rights can be terminated if you're creating a scene or whatever." It's interesting how the city blocks off traffic and barricades the streets every year for the Gay Pride Parade, evidently that is not what they consider "creating a scene." If you've ever been there, you know that they most definitely creat a scene. Such is the world of double standards in politics.

Mitt Romney, No Friend to Conservatives

During a recent conversation about the primaries, I mentioned that if Romney becomes the Republican nominee and it ultimately boils down to Obama vs. Romney in the general election, I would write in Mickey Mouse. The instant reaction was that I would be throwing away my vote. But, I don't think that's true. The only diffence that I see between Obama and Romney is that Obama says he wants change and Romney says he has changed. Even the radical liberal, George Soros says there 'isn’t all that much difference' between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. (Check it out here.)

Numerous radio talk show hosts have expressed their concern about Mitt Romney, including Mark Levin, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, who have all but officially endorsed Rick Santorum. As a matter of fact, Limbaugh has stated emphatically that “Mitt Romney is not a conservative.” Even the socially libertarian, Neal Boortz prefers Santorum and Gingrich over Romney. He only looks toward Romney by default, believing that out of the three, only he could beat Obama. But, does this actually qualify for a vote? I don't think so. Meanwhile, no less than six of Romney's own family members have endorsed Ron Paul.

It was an absolutely enormous one-stop piece published by Mass Resistance of Massachusetts, disclosing Romney's actions and social policies, that first grabbed my attention as to just how dangerous of a threat Mitt Romney really is. It is not enough that he has waffled on abortion and failed to rise to the defense of marriage, his political policies have threatened the well established liberties that this nation was built on. It chronicles Romney's legacy as governor, focusing on his pro-choice record and how he was bent over backwords in support of the radical homosexual agenda.

For example, despite the over 2,500 pedophilia cases now on record involving homosexual scout leaders, Romney has stated, "I feel that all people should be allowed to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation." In the same article, a BSA official criticized Romney for opposing Scout policy. - Boston Globe, 10/27/1994

According to David M. Bresnahan's Investigative Journal, Web Today, "That is a view which is in direct opposition... to the BSA national policy. Romney showed his colors during the Olympics when he made it clear that the Boy Scouts would not be a part of the Olympics as they had traditionally been throughout modern Olympic history. There would be no Scouts in uniform for the public or press to see. Romney wanted no complaints from the homosexual community or the world press."

Brenahan continues, "Every past Olympics, regardless of host country, the local Scouts participated in some way -- in uniform. In fact, some of the past Olympics even used Scouts in uniform to present the awards to the Olympians." This came at a time when the BSA were suffering an unrelenting assault by radical homosexual activists which included a Supreme Court case in Florida which voted 5 to 4 in favor of BSA, a narrow margin to say the least. Even President Bill Clinton came to their defense at one point.

Considering the above it comes as no surprise that Romney has clearly stated that he is "not planning on reversing" Obama's repeal of don't ask, don't tell, regarding homosexuals in the military. I find it hard to believe that the governor who refused to defend marriage in Massachusetts will do anything to their benefit if elected president. As pro-homosexual publication, Bay Windows noted in it's 2005 article, Mitt Romney's Secret Gay History!, "Even after he came out in support of state and federal constitutional amendments to ban same-sex marriage, Romney took some actions that could be labeled pro-gay."

Apparently Romney based his abortion position on opinion polls. He frequented Planned Parenthood events and sought their endorsement. Meanwhile his wife financially supported them, albeit a small contribution. Of course, Romney has distanced himself from her but if elected, she would still be the official first lady. (See here and here.) Here’s a pro-life statement that has been signed by Michele Bachmann, Tim Pawlenty, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and Ron Paul, but Romney has refused to sign it. The statement is from the Susan B. Anthony List, a respected and well-known pro-life group.

While running for Senate in Massachusetts, Romney stated:
“While I personally believe abortion is not a choice for me, I believe a woman should have that choice to make for herself. I hold the view that this stance is one of sepration of church and state.” (link)
Sound familiar? This is the same argument that every good old Democrat politician has made. When running for governor in 2002, in response to the National Abortion Rights Action League's candidate survey Romney wrote in "I respect and will protect a woman's right to choose. This choice is a deeply personal one. Women should be free to choose based on their own beliefs, not mine and not the government's." (link)

Obama modelled his health care plan after Mitt Romney's Massachusetts plan. MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, who advised both Gov. Romney and President Obama on health care, asserted: “Basically, it’s the same thing.”

According to MSNBC: "The records, gleaned from White House visitor logs reviewed by NBC News, show that senior White House officials had a dozen meetings in 2009 with three health-care advisers and experts who helped shape the health care reform law signed by Romney in 2006, when the Republican presidential candidate was governor of Massachusetts. One of those meetings, on July 20, 2009, was in the Oval Office and presided over by President Barack Obama, the records show."

Furthernore, The Beacon Hill Institute study found that, on average, Romneycare:
  • cost the Bay State 18,313 jobs;
  • drove up total health insurance costs in Massachusetts by $4.311 billion;
  • slowed the growth of disposable income per person by $376; and
  • reduced investment in Massachusetts by $25.06 million.
Not only is Romney linked with Obama Care, but evidently there's also family connection to Saul Alinsky, whom Obama is said to have patterned much of his own political formulas, including teaching at the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) in Chicago. ACORN was shut down in 2009 following the release of a video in which employees appeared to advise on how to hide prostitution activities and avoid taxes. Check out the photos of when Mitt's father, George Romney, met Saul Alinsky. "I think you ought to listen to Alinsky," George told his white allies, according to T. George Harris's 1968 book, Romney's Way. Mitt's father and mother were not exactly the most conservative Republicans.

A potential Romney Gate? “As manager and board member of Damon Corp, Mitt Romney sits at the center of one of the top 15 corporate crimes of the 1990’s.” Watch the mini-documentary, Blood Money: Mitt Romney's Medicare Scandal.

I will close with tea party activist, Ali Akbar's thoughts: "Mitt Romney is dangerous for this country," he warns. "I'm going to argue that a conservative House and a conservative Senate, which we will achieve, will be better for the country under President Barack Obama than [under] President Romney, simply because we can fight the enemy."

My objection to abortion should not be thought to imply insensitivity toward anyone who has suffered such an ordeal.  My denunciation of the homosexual agenda in no way should be misinterpretted as hateful or demeaning toward those who are or who have struggled with such sexual tendencies.
