It is hard to top Rush.

I'm surprised he hasn't started a “Huts for Humanity” fund to help George Obama, like he started that medical fund to help Dick Gephardt’s mother pay for her medication.

“Health Care Reform, in the committee of a man who does not understand it (Conyers) Enforced by a man who doesn't pay his taxes (Geitner) Will be signed by a man who won't read it, (Obama) and Financed by a country that is broke”

I left a few things out, can't remember it all, was laughing too hard!

Bible-believing Christians should take note that the most liberal POTUS is twisting our scripture to guilt Americans into lock-stepping with his leftist agenda. He:
• continues to quote the first murderer, Cain, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” (Genesis 4:9). Meanwhile, his own brother is living in a MUD HUT in Kenya and survives on poverty level wages.
• held a teleconference with select ‘religious’ leaders in which he called Americans “immoral” and said “they are bearing false witness”. This from the man who said to a meeting at Planned Parenthood, “If my daughters get pregnant, I don’t want them PUNISHED with a baby.”
• while talking to San Franciscans he derided Americans for “clinging to religion”.
• on the campaign trail, he referenced the Sermon on the Mount as supporting HOMOSEXUALITY.
• he said “My MUSLIM faith” to George Stephanopolis who corrected him by saying, “You mean your Christian faith.”

Can government do the work of God (Charity)?

What I have read and understood from the Bible is that God and Jesus wants us to help each other by using our own time, treasure and talent and to give from our hearts (”Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” - 2 Corinthians 9:7). Nowhere have I found anything along the lines of “Go out and institute huge bureaucracies that will take money from some people at the point of a sword and give that money to other people as a politician sees fit.”

Our Founding Fathers were Christian and very pious men. They founded this country under strong Judeo-Christian tenets and reflected on their religious beliefs on all their decisions. They wrote nothing into the Constitution of any type of government “aid” to help the poor, children or anyone else on purpose. They wanted a very limited government for good reason. Limited government is the best way to ensure that freedom will be preserved. The Scottish philosopher Alexander Tytler, who lived during the time of the American Revolution and writing of the US Constitution, summed these views:

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasure.

From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s great civilizations has been two hundred years.

These nations have progressed through the following sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith, from spiritual faith to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependency, from dependency back to bondage.”

There are many interesting questions if citizens rely on government to do “God’s Work.”

If a government takes a portion of a man’s wages and does good with it, has the man also done good? If a government takes away a portion of a woman’s property and does evil with it, has the woman also done evil?

When a rich man pays more in taxes than a poor person, is he more Godly?

If the government then does evil, is he more to blame? A woman works for the government and uses other people’s tax money and does “God Work” with it, is this government woman now a good/Godly woman? If I legally try to avoid paying taxes, does that not make me an “Ungodly” man?

Today, the US government (federal, state and local) takes nearly 50% of a middle-class person’s paycheck after all taxes are factored in (income taxes, Social Security, sales tax, real estate taxes, gas tax, death taxes, phone taxes, highway tolls, sad etc.). Uncle Sam will spend more money in just this year (2004) than it spent combined between 1787 and 1900 - even after adjusting for inflation. I cringe at those numbers.

The Founding Fathers wanted nothing like the tax-consuming monster that we have as a government today. I also think of all the good work that could have be done if people were allowed to keep more of their own money and give it to organizations/people that they believe in their heart are doing God’s work. Maybe it comes down to trust. Will people do the right thing with their own money or must a government take a huge chunk of it to do the “right things?”

Except government rarely does anything right except for those tasks that were explicitly outlined in the Constitution as the Founding Father intended. I could cite many examples (such as where would you rather put $10,000 in retirement money - in Social Security or in your own 401k
plan?) but the plight of black America illustrates this failure beyond comparison.

In 1965, the US government was going to wipe out poverty by the “Great Society” programs, in which to date over 3.5 trillion dollars has been spent. These federal programs were designed to “help families and children” or “buy votes” depending on your political viewpoint.

At the beginning of the 1960’s, the black out of wedlock birth rate was 22%. In the late 1975 it reached 49% and shot up to 65% in 1989. In some of the largest urban centers of the nation the rate of illegitimacy among blacks today exceeds 80% and averages 69% nationwide. As late as the 1970’s there was still a social stigma attached to a woman who was pregnant outside marriage. Now, government programs have substituted for the father and for black moral leadership. The black family and culture has collapsed (and white families are not that far behind).

Illegitimacy leads directly to poverty, crime and social problems. Out of wedlock children are four times more likely to be poor. They are much more likely to live in high crime areas with no hope of escape. In turn, they are forced to attend dangerous and poor-performing government schools, which directly leads to another generation of poverty.

Traditional black areas of Harlem, Englewood and West Philadelphia in the 1950s were safe working class neighborhoods (even though “poor” by material measures). Women were unafraid to walk at night and children played unmolested in the streets and parks. Today, these are some of the worst crime plagued areas of our nation. Work that was once dignified is now shunned. Welfare does not require recipients to do anything in exchange for their benefits. Many rules actually discourage work or provide benefits that reduce the incentive to find work.

The black abortion rate today is nearly 40%. Pregnancies among black women are twice as likely to end in abortion as pregnancies among white and Hispanic women.

The “Great Society” programs all had good intentions. Unfortunately, their real world results are that they have replaced the traditional/Christian models of family/work with that of what a government bureaucrat thinks it should be.

I could make an excellent argument that if the US government had hired former grand wizards of the KKK to run the “Great Society” programs, and if they had worked every day from 1965 to today without rest, they could have hardly have done better in destroying black America than the “Works of God” that the government has done or is trying to do.

I have visited many countries in which the government “guarantees” that everyone has a job, a place to live, education, health care and cradle to grave “government help” for all children and families. It all sounds great except that the people in these countries are/were miserable. They wanted to escape but were forced by their governments, at the end of a gun, to stay. The “worker’s paradises” of socialist and communist counties are chilling reminders of letting governments do “God’s Work.”

The Bible clearly states that we are to help those in need. The question is “Who should help those in need?” I firmly believe that scripture and the historical evidence strongly support that individuals, private organizations and churches should be the ones doing the heavy lifting.
Government help should be the last resort. “Charity,” enforced by the government, is not charity, it is extortion. “Charity,” delivered by the government, is not charity, it is a bribe which corrupts both the giver and the receiver.

Very Sincerely,

2banana

Yes, we are our brother's keeper but there are three Capital Sins being committed by about 3/4 of the "47 million uninsured"

They are Greed, Sloth and Envy. Greed for the people that can afford health care but refuse to buy it but want it for free. Sloth for those who refuse to work because they rely on American generosity. Envy for those that want to steal what others have thru their own hard work.

Mr President, you exhibit the height of hypocrisy when you preach us the Word in which you do not believe yourself. You may want to start going to Church more than twice a year.

What a Devil Worshipin’, Satanic Inspired, Communist!

Invokes the story of Cain “Who Killed” Abel, his very own brother?

And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper?
And he [God] said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.
— Genesis 4: 9-10 (KJV)

You make what you want of the post but, I have heard Barry O. say on more than one occasion as it is written “We are our brothers/sisters keeper”.

Really? Hope not. Spoke stupidly!

Keepers are sheep. (Cain was demeaning Abel when he asked that famous question.)

Mr. President, I do not need, nor do I want you or anyone else as a keeper, so just keep to yourself! It is insulting to me for you to claim that I’m as dumb as a sheep.

Jesus never referenced that a secular gov’t provide care for Christians. His directive was always for the Church to provide care whether it be for the poor, or for widows. There's got to be a reason why the Lord would allow someone like B.O. to rise to the level of U.S. President. B.O. perverts the truth and mocks the Christian faith. I know that Jesus knows what He is doing, but the rise of this Muslim confounds me.

“Half brother.”

It is true that George Obama is only a half brother to Barack Obama, and I bet he’d be thrilled to be treated as even a half brother by Barack Obama. From my own observations, Rush’s point is applicable to a large proportion of liberals, who tend to spout all kinds of charitable ideas, but who, upon close examination, do not practice these ideas at all in their personal lives.

I think Bamie totally misinterpretted what ‘keeper’ means. But he’s never read the Bible, so he’s completely ignorant. I believe he thinks of himself-as-keeper as something that contains or holds or controls or keeps within bounds. That kind of keeper.
“I am the one that contains and controls and keeps you all within the bounds I set”. That’s what he’s actually saying.

I noted about a week ago that one of the biggest abuse of a bible verse is the one in which Cain replied to the Lord, “Am I my brother's keeper?” Most people assume that this rhetorical question is “yes,” but the correct answer is “no”. We are NOT our brother's keeper. Should we care about our brother, of course we should, but we are NOT his keeper. In order to be someones keeper, we would have to control his behavior. We would have to be his jailer and keep him behind bars. We would have to control him as a parent controls his one year old child. God never intended us to become slaves to someone else or to a government.
According to Obama, the government wants to be our keeper. That is exactly what we do not want.

That was brilliant in it’s obvious simplisity! The all powerful brother is keeping his own brother in a hut.

When you think about it, Obama’s socialist health/death care/abuse plan will move us from the houses of American civilization to the huts of South America and Africa like Obama’s brother. Bam likes his brothers to be starving in huts - in equality!

This is the moral of Obama’s story: Equal centrally controlled epoverty and abuse for all except for the special pigs on the animal farm.

In fact, that is exactly what he did. He decided to “keep” his brother by killing him. That is what I call control, and that is what the government wants to do to us. The Obama regime wants to kill our desire for individual freedom and personal responsibility. He wants to bury us under socialism. Beware of anyone or anything that wants to be your keeper.

I bet he has no clue what the Bible says because Irreverent Wright probably never quoted the HOLY Bible, thus avoiding the wrath of the Nation of Islam his ‘church’ is in bed with.
Remember, the racist Zero attended the church whose creed included: #11= “To pledge allegiance to BLACK leaders who embrace and espouse BLACK LIBERATION THEOLOGY.

His election defies logic and decency.

FYI

the reliable, Townhall.com is reporting that the Obama White House is abuzz with talk of witchcraft by first grandmother, 72-year-old Marian Robinson, who lives in the White House residence. A close friend of Michelle Obama says the president is furious at his mother-in-law after learning that she was practicing Santeria, an African spirit cult, in the White House.

The president was “totally in favor” when his mother-in-law moved into the White House as a live-in babysitter for 11-year-old Malia and 8-year-old Sasha. Obama reportedly told Michelle that her mother will have to go back to Chicago if she does not “stop this witchcraft mumbo-jumbo immediately” and ordered the Secret Service to not allow Marian’s friend to return to the White House.
