Life will not go on
World Net Daily ^ | November 06, 2008 | Jill Stanek

Posted on 11/06/2008 2:05:24 PM PST by rhema

Barack Obama was elected president despite the fact he supports abortion into the fourth trimester.

Either the 63 million people voting for him didn't know about his radical record, which includes abandoning abortion survivors to die, didn't care, or didn't believe it.

Meanwhile all three state pro-life initiatives failed Tuesday: the California Abortion Waiting Period and Parental Notification Initiative, the Colorado Equal Rights Amendment (defining personhood as beginning at conception) and the South Dakota Abortion Ban Initiative.

And both state anti-life initiatives passed: the Michigan Stem Cell Initiative (allowing human embryo experimentation) and the Washington Death with Dignity Initiative (allowing physician assisted suicide).

Altogether, this means we are fooling ourselves if we think the United States is still a Christian nation. Its people just elected a barbarian as president, authorized the killing of both its youngest and sickest, rejected scientific fact that human life begins at conception, blocked parental intervention of abortions of young girls, and voted down the wording of an abortion ban they said only two years ago they would support.

Fifty seven million did vote against him though ... he only has a seven million majority out of 320 million Americans ... that’s only .02 percent ..... better way of looking at it ...

Hey, since Obama has stirred up the electorate with “hope”, “change” and “yes we can” without defining them, how about us conservatives define them for him?

To all American citizens,

We have just entered a new era. We have elected a new president who has inspired the country and given hope to those who have felt disillusioned and downcast on our great nation. And this is a great nation and a grand example of the success of our experiment in the trust in people over politicians in Washington, in the rule of law over rule of kings, and in every individuals inalienable rights given to us by our Creator. We have been welcomed back in with open arms by the world, and may we use our new found respect and friendship to spread the hope of the American Dream. Hope that hard work pays off and is respected by all. Hope that government powers will be restrained by law and allow freedom to flourish. Hope that those who have given so much of their own free will to the cause of an inspirational presidential candidate, will do the same for a neighbor in need and without government coercion. We have our founders to thank, from their love of freedom, to their Protestant work ethic, to their desire for everyone to be able to read the Bible so that they may be saved. The principles of freedom, hard work, and education still drive the engine of America today.

But we also needed change. Our image has been projected to the world and to our own country in the worst light for eight years. Good and well-meaning Americans were told to hang their heads in shame from charges of racism, unwarranted aggression, and greed. This image was projected throughout the world through the best entertainment industry on Earth, through satellites placed in orbit through American ingenuity, and through our universities that draw students desiring the best education from around the world. But this message is about to change. We have proved we are no longer a racist people. Violence and greed will have no place in our new message to the world. We can hold our heads high with a new image of inspiration shown through and supported by our representatives to the world in every news studio and movie lot from Manhattan to Hollywood. The American culture is not something to be ashamed of, and let us proudly hold our strong traditions of honesty, family, and community through our schools and churches, our farms and offices, and in our own homes. Our country does not need another critic, but we welcome a new fan, and we hear the new message that echoes throughout the world and returns to our ears: “Yes We Can”.

Yes we can bring freedom to our markets from expensive government takeovers and stifling regulations. Yes we can bring freedom to churches who have been stomped out of schools and the public square and recognize them as full members of our communities. Yes we can free every citizen from the burden of a crushing tax code. Yes we can support the rights of fathers as well as we have supported the rights of mothers. Yes we can put guns in the hands of law abiding citizens and strike fear in criminals who would take advantage of them. Yes we can expand the protections a few groups with well-funded lobbyists have to all citizens. Yes we can encourage energy innovation and production for all sources instead of a handful with good government connections. Yes we can restore the respect of a diversity of ideas, worldviews, and affiliations to our schools and popular media.

Yes We Can. Thank you, God bless you, and may God Bless the United States of America.

hey rhema,

i’m willing to bet that half the people who voted for 0, didn’t know his radical stance on abortion. my father in law was thinking about voting for him and i told him all about the BAIPA and how 0 wouldn’t sign it THREE times...i told him exactly what he supported and what it meant for the life of the child...he said earnestly that he did not know that 0 stood for that...that partial birth abortion is wrong and he didn’t agree with 0’s stance on the BAIPA—after we had a row about other topics he said he wasn’t sure if he would be voting for 0 or not...i have yet to find out, but my point is that people don’t realize what is entailed in “a woman’s right to choose.”

I would guess it could be higher. I talked to a couple of Catholics who go to church every week at least once and they had no idea about Obama’s record on abortion. I still think they voted for Obama even after I mentioned his record. I was disturbed. I don’t get it.

Abortion doesn’t seem to drive a voter but maybe I am just unaware. It is a clear driver for me. Except for Debate 3 and Sarah Palin’s clear views at rallys, the abortion issue seemed to be under a rug somewhere.

“Into the fourth trimester” = post birth

It’s not really a trimester, and it’s not really an abortion. It’s infanticide. That’s what she was driving at.

I informed my Catholic friend in Seattle that B.H.Obama was so pro-abortion. Only thing that concerned her was that McCain was so pro-war like Bush.

So that means she favors killing innocent babies but sparing guilty murderous terrorists. The minds of liberals folks....fuzzy math for ya too.

Obama didn’t win with the promise of anything specific. He won as a rejection to George W. Bush’s domestic failures, as follows.

1) The WoT, in the minds of the American public, needed and needs to be fought in other countries, not the USA. The public were very appalled and resentful of much of the Patriot Act legislation, which they saw to be unnecessary, intrusive and offensive.

2) He raised the festering issue of illegal aliens, but without a clear and concise plan for dealing with the problem. Instead, every perfidious scoundrel profiting from illegal aliens got their hand into the mix, with the end result of aggravating everyone and accomplishing too little, too late.

3) President Bush adopted a policy in his first term, not seen since intermittently in the late 19th Century, of letting congress run the country. The Republican congress acted without discipline and with disgusting greed, violating any fiscal responsibility. As leader of that party, he should have made them toe the line. That congress was punished as a warning to Bush, but he still did not intervene with the Democrat congress to make them orderly houses. At the same time, Bush continued and took the unconstitutional practice of the Presidential Signing Statement to new heights.

4) President Bush refused to fight back, either in his own behalf, on behalf of Republicans and conservatives, or even the American people, except with the pursuit of the wars. He refused to engage in the bare knuckle political fighting that has to be done with scoundrels to keep them in their place. Pelosi and Reed and their ilk, on the other hand, kept up a continual barrage of scurrilous attacks against him.

The bottom line is that President Bush should have been exclusively a war president, and directed Dick Cheney to keep the domestic house in order, if he was too busy.

Christians always fight the uphill battle, they will always struggle against the odds, the battle never seems to go our way, and maybe that is the way it's supposed to be, because we never give up.

If the end were is sight, there might be an urge to relax, to go slack with our words and deeds, but now, with what seems to be a renewal of evil rising up across the world, we must apply ourselves anew, take a deep breath and fight the good fight once more.

It's all we can do.

Only a minority of those people voted against him because of abortion, stem cells, etc. I forget the traditional % that vote pro-life, but it's something like 10 or 20%.

Yeh, but they know very well that the Democratic party is pretty much for abortion on demand, and they have seen some of the amazing new photos of fetuses.

1) What is a Presidential Signing Statement?

2) Re your contention that Bush lost popularity because of the Patriot Act, I'm sceptical because it affected so few people.

I live near Colorado Springs and Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion types were FLOODING our mail boxes and radio stations with ads condeming the “personhood” initiative. It was overwhelming; they were truly scared and they used scare tactics like “they’re going to take away your birth control pills.”
