Skip to comments."Make Us Gods Who Will Go Before Us"

As Americans, there is a disconnect between our professed regard for liberty and this tendency to seek for ourselves gods among men. On the surface, we love to wrap ourselves in the rhetoric of equality, freedom, and the populist sentiments underlying representative government. On the other, we crave, demand, and ultimately crown royalty. A friend recently told me in reference to President Obama, The way he speaks, you can just tell hes intelligent. Hes so intelligent. And you want that in your president, someone intelligent. The unspoken implication which I find echoed in criticisms of Sarah Palin is we want a leader who can serve as our civic auto-pilot, someone smarter than us, better than us, closer to perfect. Such a person demonstrates, through their intellectual peacocking, their right to rule. We dutifully oblige them. But this runs counter to such pedestrian ideas as all men are Created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. We cannot have it both ways. We either believe all men have equal intrinsic worth, or we dont. When we dont, we come up with asinine ideas like the president ought to be smarter than us, or Tiger Woods is God, or any other manifestation of Beatlemania-like idolatry.

‘You shall have no other gods before Me.’
(Commandment Number One)
If they keep removing the Ten Commandments from public view, does that mean that we now have to follow THEIR commandments as defined by the current propaganda and p.c. codes?
Yup! It is the purpose behind removing God from the public square. There is a vacuum and it then is filled with their gods, their laws, their ideas, their philosophy, their PC, and ultimately their sins.
Take away TOTUS and he’s got nothing.....
“...their gods, their laws, their ideas, their philosophy, their pc, and ultimately their sins.”
So, the game is afoot Watson.
The thing about the teleprompter is, I do not find it indicative of his intelligence so much as his dishonesty. Look, if you believe what you say, it comes naturally. It’s when you’re playing a role that you need a script. Obama’s dishonesty is no indication of his intelligence. I think it foolhardy to underestimate the intelligence of the opposition.
Absolutely, but I don't think he is THE opposition, I truly believe he is only the product of the opposition - a bobble-head, if you will.
His metronome head shows me he is still the student, even though people will say he's the professor.
Virtuosos do not use Metronomes when they perform.
They have an internal beat, He doesn't.
