Angle: Democrats want to 'make government our God'

Angle: Democrats want to 'make government our God'

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Nevada U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle sees her campaign as a battle to stop Democrats in Washington who want to expand entitlement programs and "make government our God."

In an interview with a Christian radio network, Angle describes her effort to oust Majority Leader Harry Reid as a religious calling in "a war of ideology, it's a war of thoughts and of faith."

Reid, President Barack Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have pushed "entitlement programs built to make government our God," says Angle,

who has called for privatizing Social Security and Medicare for younger workers. "What's happening in this country is a violation of the First Commandment," Angle told Trunews in the April interview, which is posted on the network's website.

"We have become a country entrenched in idolatry, and that idolatry is the dependency upon our government. We're supposed to depend upon God for our protection and our provision and for our daily bread, not for our government," she said. Reid's campaign said in a statement Wednesday that Angle's statements are "frightening."

Well it’s about time someone said it out loud. That is precisely what Marxism is all about. And they are infallible.

Oh, I can believe that. To a liberal/marxist, belief in the true God is "frightening". They believe in the god of government for sure. That is a god that they can control and use to further their agenda. Right On Sharron!

Sharon Angle
Angle, a Southern Baptist, has called herself a faith-based politician and prays daily. Among her positions, she opposes abortion in all circumstances, including rape and incest.
She's got my support!!

Our Lady of the Snows, please pray for Sharon (and all of US)!

His campaign is so typical of the old machine politics of FUD,(fear, uncertainty and doubt), with additional smear lathered on top.

Democrats already believe that government is god. Just look at them, they believe that there is literally NOTHING that government can’t do.

Never EVER forget these self-proclaimed dictators and Government Gods are out to be the sole determiners of whether you “live” or “die.” In my opinion, genocide is their game plan.

Do you doubt it? The proof is before our eyes. The truth is there in their words and deeds.

Correction:

Elites (NWO/Bildeberg/Trilateral-Commission/CFR/Super-Rich) already believe they are Gods, and want Govt. to carry out their will.

Ms. Angle is not aware of it but most Pols on both sides are owned by Elites.

Hope she and her innocence gets in, if for nothing else, just to let the Elites know, we are watching.

Oh, I believe it. Their ultimate goal is to form a socialist utopia and the literally do not care if they have to enslave one half of the population of the US and murder the other half to achieve it. Make no mistake, there is real evil afoot in our government. Obastard is the Hitler of 1932. People saw that Hitler was evil and tried to warn everyone, but people refused to believe that he was as evil as the people claimed.

Do the liberals have their delicate panties in a wad over this? My goodness, the girl is just quoting Hegel, one of the liberals patron saints, who characterized the state as god walking on earth.

There can be no coexistence with the left.

I agree that people have made Gov’t their god, I don’t get however how so-called “privatization” is a free market solution.

FORCING people to put money into the stock market under the guise of saving social security is a disastrous idea.

And again, forcing people to contribute to a privately managed Medicare solution is... Obamacare!

How about, Gov’t, you protect the country from invasions, build a few roads, and just get out of our way?

We can take off the rest, thanks.

The problem with a belief in government as God is that “true believers” seek to eliminate those who believe in any other god. Which is exactly what happened in other totalitarian countries - in Nazi Germany, it the Soviet Union, in fundamentalist Muslim countries and in other communist countries.

THAT is how they demonstrate their belief in the government god and liberals have been sowing the seeds for that to happen here for the past 50 years, starting with the abolishment of prayer in schools.

You speak the truth. Just today an aquaintance of mine at the dog park told me the scariest story. She is a single mom, long story, bad choice of sperm donor, you know the drill. But at least she kept her adorable daughter and is doing her best to raise her well. The father is a deadbeat who will only pay small bits of child support when forced by a judge.

She asked for help from the state only for insurance. She was told that because she is working and has family insurance available even if at a high cost, she was not eligible. But the Child and Family svs worker elaborated that if she QUIT HER JOB she could have ins, food stamps, sec 8 housing for free, and lots of other goodies.

What kind of world do we live in where working people are encouraged/bribed to leave gainful employment and become bums? Kudos to this young lady for having none of it. She wants to be a good example to her kid and raise her so as to avoid the mistakes she made. The state wants her to make it a never ending circle.

“The democrats want to make government our god”

is a great theme (meme) for the nationalization of the 2010 election. I hope all conservative candidates use the phrase.

Karl Rove was on Greta's show tonight on FOX. He, and Newt Gingrich, both, truly think that Sharron is going to pull it out against Harry on November 2nd.
From their lips to God's ears.

The Catholic Church wouldn’t condone abortion, however, they do not back candidates, just issues. I sure like Sharron’s stance on Life.

its our own government State Department brings in thousands and thousands of immigrants into the United States. Do you think it’s a coincidence the highest immigrant populations since 1992 to the present New York 40% California 30% Florida 25% Michigan 25% Pennsylvania 25% Texas 25% Now add up the electoral college numbers in those states. The Communist state department is doing their job..

Well, as a born-again, Evangelical, I get awfully upset at “our” folks who go to church and sing, clap, shout and praise The Lord on Sunday and then go into the voting booth on Tuesday and vote for candidates and/or a Party that propagates killing little, unborn babies.

Somethings I’ll never understand.

Alive, well and probably mentally sharper than any of the candidates running. Is the NV GOP running any candidates to federal office with stones enough to have served in the military?
