I'm not a Romney supporter.

You're far closer to the GOP elite establishment with your view that Obama is not a threat to the nation than I am.

No further discussion from me either........now that the facts are on the table, and your premise destroyed by reality.

btw, thanks for finally replying to me.

Perhaps it's because you know that your accusations that I am a Romney supporter are untrue.

I hope you at least have that much common sense.

Working here in Ohio to support only Tea Party, solid conservative candidates. (like I've been doing for years)
Donating to candidates across the country who uphold Conservative standards, to defeat the GOP establishment in primaries and win in general elections.
Quit giving to the RNC a very, very long time ago.

I have conservative principles to the core.

And I HATE Barack Obama.

Hope you do too...... we're supposed to have the same goals here.

At least I think we are......

Then given I recognize machine politics from my days as a precinct Captain in NW Suburban Chicago, we will never know the amount of fraud that this entire election cycle is rife with. Newt messed up in Virginia. He should have more people working for him to get him on the ballot. He had some people who thought it was funny to mess up his signatures. However he Newt lost Oklahoma, Tenn, Miss, Louisiana to Rick so neither one of them wanted to bow out and it cost us our pick!!! All they had to do is one bow out. But I believe they have swelled heads and they couldn’t. Even for the good of the Nation!

I add my thanks for the BUMP to Jeff's comments and for the reminder to check out his link.

Don't thank me, I never clicked on his link. Mittbots live in the land of assumption.

You, on the other hand.......

Are as different from mittbots as day is to night. And that's the way it will remain as I'm grounded in Truth and not deception.

"you NOT pinging me when talking about me in your whole post is the topic."

I've seen you mentioned quite a bit recently without being pinged. Do you realize why? It is referred to as a "courtesy ping." Quite a few people have determined, on account of your vile behavior, that you are not worthy of the slightest respect or courtesy.

Cause and effect, you malignant little goblin.

I rarely say things this extreme, but if you think the horrible things you say to everyone who crosses your path is the "truth," then you are in deep spiritual trouble. You need help......and prayer. Even those who agree with you know it.

The post above mine calls you 'malignant.' I do not disagree with that.

The Deceiver poses as an angel of light. Be careful. You are on very thin ice here if you think the vile way you behave yourself has anything to do with Truth.

No I didn't realized it because I'm not reading any posts only those I'm pinged to and even those scantily. So thanks for telling me they are showing how ill bred and dark they really are.

"Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them" Eph 5:11

"Traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them." 2 Tim 3:4,5

I have nothing to discuss with those who have kicked God out with their support to a 'same sex marriage, pro baby killing, backstabber, bishop of a cult godless candidate' - if they could fall that low, it shows that IS their level as any test/trail reveals what's within each.

They are left with a 'nation' all on it's own under evil like any another nation now.

But God, All Knowing/Seeing protects His own, those who would never bow to evil, from amidst any calamity that WILL befall the wicked/drawn to evil and that is Truth as It is Written. God always has a remnant, His own, His faithful.

So you go your way, my decision was made before there was a decision in this election. God is first, last and always no matter what.

Your thin ice just got thinner.....

1 John 1:9

Using God's name to defend your vile behavior is dangerous ground.

1 John 1: 9

Proclaiming that your political opinion makes you part of the "remnant" and condemning other believers in Jesus Christ who don't share your political opinions is more than dangerous.

It's blasphemy.

I'll pray for you, PNSN. You've got a big problem with understanding what is true, and hurl false insults with a venom I've rarely seen (even on FR). Only Jesus Christ can help you.

I'm getting off the computer right now to spend some time in reading and prayer, and you will be mentioned specifically in that prayer. Though I don't know your real name, God does.

God is Faithful. He hears and answers prayers when prayed in the Name of Jesus. I will pray.

Peace.

Prayers mean nothing from anyone who supports evil - there about as good as from the bishop romney you entrust for your care. God and evil - they never met up. You can’t have two masters.

As soon as there is a supposed crisis you fold like a cheap suitcase. I live my faith, not talk about it.

Case closed.

You will continue to be in my prayers.

You have insulted many followers of Jesus Christ, just in this one thread. You have heaped derision and scorn on others who show His love with their lives, and have lied repeatedly about more good people than can be counted.

Often before I come to FR, I pray for my own spiritual control, because on my own I say many things that don't please the Lord, and have to beg Him (and others) for forgiveness. I've done that more times than I would like to admit.

We are all fallible. We are all sinners, saved by grace, and if we don't reflect the grace and love given freely to us to others, we need to ask for forgiveness.

Be careful about your Pharisaical attitude. Jesus Christ condemned those who thought they were superior to others and belittled everyone who didn't follow their personal code (not HIS), far more than He condemned the repentant sinner.

I will continue to pray that both of us behave more like the latter than the former.

Because if we don't, we heap dishonor on the Name of our Savior who died for our sins by behaving sinfully toward others, and in cases such as this, before many witnesses. Just because we are hiding under screen names doesn't mean our sins are hidden before a Holy God.

"They will know we are Christians by our love."

Hell no. I'd vote FOR Romney before I'd vote for Paul, and since Romney's never getting my vote - well, you do the math.

I liked Cain, and we saw what the Machine did to him. I would have supported any other Candidate with a shred of Conservative principle.

Romney doesn't have a shred, and he's Obama's pick for an opponent for November. /p>

I'm not plying into the trap.

for the record, never have I suggested I am high and mighty.

No, you have not "suggested" it explicitly. You have demonstrated it.

You are so wrong on so many levels and you and I have long passed discussing anything civilly. Have a great weekend. I know my husband and I will....

For example, you do not have to explicitly suggest that you're being passive-aggressive when you demonstrate it like that.

Axelrod does not think beyond his taskmaster’s second term. I do. That is the difference.... Didn’t we have enough centrism since 1988 already?

You mean in 1988 when Ronaldus Magnus endorsed Mr "Read My Lips" Blue Blood RINO Bush I?

David Axelrod was getting a polisci degree while Jimmy Carter was demonstrating the shortcomings of liberalism.

Axelrod was working with educators 30 years ago during Reagan's term to create the skulls full of mush that were fainting for Obama in 2008.

Oh yeah. They think REALLL long term.

That's why HE is implementing policy today with the President, and we're posting opinions on a website.

I don’t think Romney’s victory over Obama, if it occurs, will delay the Left’s strategy at all, and it will do real damage to conservatism if conservatives endorse him. So Axelrod won already.

Conservatives better stay out this election. Write in somebody and have your conscience clear. Write in yourself. I’ll probably write in Mother Angelica.

That's how the GOP-e and Ruling Class also worked in concert with Axelrod and Obama to destroy everyone from Palin to Newt as well. The Ruling Class Establishment worked together to make sure Conservatives had no chance this election.

Question is would you vote for Romney over Zero?

I'm voting for neither one of them. I have to stand before the Lord one day, and I already repented of voting for a lesser evil just to save our skins in 2008 to no avail.

I will not vote for someone whose record is identical to Obama's.

God should come first. First before family, and before country. That’s the priority our Founder’s adhered to.

Putting family or nation before God is idolatry, and maybe we need to take a look and collectively ask ourselves if that is the reason we are not being blessed with honorable and convicted leaders?

ABSOLUTELY INDEED.

I remain convinced that the American 'experiment' was established by God for at least 3 main reasons:

1. The propagation of the Gospel of Jesus The Christ.

2. The assistance in the establishment and help of Israel again as a Nation in her God granted lands.

3. last . . . a VIVID DEMONSTRATION, OBJECT LESSON that EVEN the MOST humanly successful and most balanced, constructive, beneficent structural form of government ever known on the planet in the era of recorded history as we have known it

APART FROM GOD

would still END UP as evil, corrupt, deadly to FREEDOM AND LIFE as all the other more overtly horrific structural forms of government.

Our salvation as individuals, peoples, as a Nation has NEVER been safe placed, assumed, projected into the arms of government--big or small--and certainly not big.

Any devotion to ANYthing other than Jesus The Christ; The GREAT I AM, Father-Son-Spirit

IS eternally damning IDOLATRY--PURELY DEADLY AND SIMPLE.

We, as individuals, either accept and choose the Authoritative Loving Parental leadership and Fatherly headship of THE GREAT I AM--ALMIGHTY GOD--THE ALPHA AND OMEGA . . . as HIS DEVOTED AND DELIGHTED-IN-HIM LOVE SLAVES

OR

we accept deadly enslavement wittingly or unwittingly controlled by lesser beings, objects, entities.

There is NO middle or other choice.

ALL other choices are not only lesser--they are deadly--and eternally deadly--regardless of their glitter, white-wash or bling.

Christians not thankful for our God-given National heritage and strutured freedoms are insufficiently thankful.

Those who put such ahead of or above God in emotion, thought, heart, practices . . . are spiritually and eternally suicidally idolatrous, unless they CONFESS, REPENT and TURN FROM such a deadly orientation and prioritization.

It's a sad thing to see any individuals or people not love the best of their national homelands.

It's a sadder thing to see individuals or groups give unfitting deadly adoration to fleshy, carnal structures, forms, forces, &/or institutions that inevitably end up corrupted by satanic forces and values.

In our present situation, our National government has long been consumed by, mangled by and controlled more or less top to bottom by the Biblically predicted satanic global government of the END TIMES.

Folks who do not yet see that are increasingly not worth my being that concerned about--particularly the arrogantly, self-righteously stubbornly willfully blind. They have actively or passively chosen their torture rack and they shall lie in it much longer than they'd ever imagine in their worst nightmares.

The window of opportunities to change their direction are shrinking increasingly rapidly.

As far as I can discern and tell, we are roughly where the citizens of Germany were a year or 3 or so before the harsh brutality and finality of the Nazi regime fell with a black-booted THUD around all their necks, on all their heads and existences.

The ONLY refuge, life, hope, security, provision, . . . available is JESUS THE CHRIST; FATHER THE GREAT I AM; HOLY SPIRIT THE COMFORTER LEADING INTO ALL TRUTH.

Those who think that globalism is not that powerful or not that infected into every global and national structure, institution and incrfeasingly every level of modern life are either uninformed, naturally or willfully lignorant or otherwise terminally clueless.

Those who think that satanic Marxist globalism is merely an also ran political entity are likewise ignorant.

The following is exceedingly and literally true:

18. "No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation." David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations

19."We shall have world government whether or not you like it, by conquest or consent." Statement by Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) member James Warburg to The Senate Foreign Relations Committee on February 17th, l950

20."The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes." Benjamin Disraeli, first Prime Minister of England, in a novel he published in 1844 called Coningsby, the New Generation

http://twoday.net/static/omega/files/quotes_from_people_who_consider_us_subjects.htm

PRETENDING that such is not true is
--NOT wise;
--NOT life giving nor life preserving;
--NOT hopeful;
--NOT realistic;
--NOT informed;
--NOT perceptive;
--NOT discerning;
--NOT good reality testing;
--NOT survival oriented;
. . .

Facing such facts as a willfully blind lobotomized slug is plain DUMB--terminally stupid.

Fantasies about different pretend realities may provide temporary comfort and allow a little more sleep here and there. They won't last long. They won't provide protection nor provision more substantial than wet toilet tissue in a hurricane.

People working desperately, vainly to 'IMPROVE THE PROCESS AND BODY POLITIC' by carnal fleshy human oriented means are like Jews polishing the silverware or doggedly professing faith 'IN THE SYSTEM' in the face of abundant evidence that the gestapo would bash the door down any minute to take them to the death camps.

The TRUTH may be horrifically HARD TO FACE. Trying to build a daily life on FALSEHOODS AND FANTACIES is DEADLY.

PRETENDING that it is all business as usual in our beloved land is suicidal thinking.

CHOOSE THIS DAY WHOM YOU WILL SERVE!

CHOOSE LIFE--IN AND THROUGH HE WHO IS LIFE INCARNATE, PERSONIFIED, LARGER THAN ALL THAT IS. SERVE HIM AND HIM ONLY. LOVE HIM AND THOSE HE DIRECTS TO BE LOVED.

Time is short.

God only knows how long we have to pretend that life is somewhat normal.

Time to prepare hearts, spirits, lives, family, home, neighborhoods . . . is slipping through the hourglass with increasing speed.

God is purifying and raising up HIS ARMY of believers--who do well to keep in mind that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities [demonic forces, fallen angels, satan and crew] in high places.

However . . . human individuals are more and more rapidly; with increasing finality; more and more emphatically choosing--ACTIVELY OR PASSIVELY--

LIFE OR DEATH--whether they realize it or not.

Believers must increasingly be led of Holy Spirit as to those to spend time on or those who have already consigned themselves to eternal death, hell.

We will all give an account of how we spent our time, resources, energies, choices.

Those actively, willfully choosing satan and his goals, ways and structures will mostly be more and more beyond hope. More and more, those passively choosing satan's deceptions etc. will also be beyond hope. Trying to save and help such WHEN GOD IS NOT SO DIRECTING--will be hazardous, deadly and at least a waste of God's gifts to you.

IT DOES NOT MATTER if they are father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, beloved friend, mentor or shoe-shine boy.

We have been warned in The Bible that this era would involve all types of such loved ones turning one into the authorities for execution. Pretending otherwise is UNBIBLICAL, UNTRUE AND SUICIDAL.

Spending one's time rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic is DUMB, STUPID, ignorant, futile. Stop it.

Spend your time, resources and energies in behalf of THE KING OF KINGS AND HIS KINGDOM.

THAT is the ONLY and the BEST good you can do the Republic of the US of A.

CHOOSE THIS DAY WHOM YOU WILL SERVE.

CHOOSE LIFE.

BELIEVERS: DETERMINE THAT YOU WILL

OVERCOME BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB AND THE WORD OF YOUR TESTIMONY.

There are no other viable options in our era. Pretending otherwise is suicidal.

Those who pretend otherwise and through their silence decline to stand up and be counted . . . will increasingly find themselves moved across the line into the enemy's camp. We are NOT all called to be town criers or watchmen as one of our major roles. We ARE ALL called to behave within our sphere of influence wisely as Holy Spirit directs--to warn and rescue the perishing as HE directs and enables.

REMEMBER--COWARDS--are lumped with homosexuals, liars, murderers et al consigned to the lake of fire.

WISELY AS HOLY SPIRIT DIRECTS--stand up at least spiritually and be counted--but also in homes and on the streets in the body politic. Cowardly passivity or denial ridden busy-work will turn out to be deadly.

CHOOSE THIS DAY WHOM YOU WILL SERVE.

CHOOSE LIFE.

Well at least you're not claiming to be more of a strategist than Axelrod anymore.

Those bastards were GETTING PAID to WORK on their leftist strategies 20 years before you signed on the FR for the first time.

But you still think you can just sit home while those guys continue to IMPLEMENT.

I don’t think Romney’s victory over Obama, if it occurs, will delay the Left’s strategy at all, and it will do real damage to conservatism if conservatives endorse him. So Axelrod won already.

So did Axelrod win "already" just now when Romney has locked the nomination, or did he win when conservatives started bickering among themselves unable to gel on a credible conservative early on in the primary?

And if Perry had won the nomination and made fools of us? If Cain had won and his shenanigans came out in the general? If Bachmann had won and put her deer in the headlight mantra on display?

Stay out? You can't even point to a standard bearer for 2016. Fools writing in themselves and "Murray the cat." Idiotic.

Conservatives better stay out this election. Write in somebody and have your conscience clear.

"Patriots better stay out of General Washington's catastrophe. Let someone else fight and have your conscience clear when the King wins."

It's ok. Nobody expects cowards to step forward to make hard decisions.

Thank you so much for your encouragement, dear brother in Christ!

Your remark concerning cowardice as a sin before God is particularly timely.

He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. - Rev 21:7-8

Fear and disbelief go hand-in-glove for if a person truly knows Who God IS, he will believe Him and trust Him.

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. - 2 Timothy 3:1-5

God's Name is I AM and Alpha and Omega.

What do you suggest for those who were reared with serious ATTACHMENT DISORDER . . . essentially . . .

being TRAINED AND TAUGHT to fear everything—particularly FATHER FIGURES.

How can they best cooperate with God in overcoming their TRAINING TO FEAR?

Your translation is self serving. I implied no disrespect nor have I ever posted anything that would suggest I am “high and mighty.” You and I? Never the twain shall meet. You have no use for anyone who does not think “just like you do.”

My strategy is to get a conservative party in the US built that can claim a serious spoiler status: 15%-30% of the electorate. To do so, the first step is to not united behind centrists like Romney. That is the paramount goal. Getting Obama beaten would be nice, but not at the cost of having conservative movement, that just learned how to show real teeth in 2010, back on the reservation.

You seem to have some fixation of Axelrod. One thing to learn from them indeed is what you point out: that they win by thinking 20 years ahead, and we field Doles, Bushes (twice), McCains and now Romney because we cannot think beyond 4 years.

Exactly. And while Carter was crashing (while Tip ONeil directed traffic after the wreck), the "planners" were working with 'educators' and lawyers and bureaucrats building the liberal skulls-full-of-mush breastworks that are still growing percentage of the population today.

I understand your eagerness to run to the front and frag a RINO General because he's not brash enough, but what's to learn from "THEM" is that the decade long slog comes from not grass-roots politicking NOW but from plowing the ground and forming the battlefield NOW with the next generation. The grass will naturally grow on that hill later.

You can't fix Washington with more or different Washington.

You have to tend to America while Washington does what it does, and try to minimize the damage meanwhile.

The same as everyone else: love God, believe Him, trust Him.

I imagine blessings are greater to those who are handicapped to begin with.

1. Love God

2. Believe God

3. Trust God

I’m not trying to be ornery, obtuse or obnoxious.

I just know that many times I’ve screamed HOW, LORD?

I certainly know others who feel that way.

HOW does one ‘force’ one’s self to Love or Love more;

Believe, or believe more?

Trust or trust more?

PARTICULARLY when one’s whole being has been TRAINED, CONDITIONED, HAMMERED intensely for 18+ years to think, feel, do the opposite?

You had a loving mother who modeled such very powerfully and effectively. Perhaps you’ve never had a shred of ATTACHMENT DISORDER. Perhaps you’ve never had a shred of existential angst, doubts, fears, etc.

I know many, including myself, who cannot recall such a wonderful childhood or life in such terms.

I don’t have any significant problem trusting God’s word AS GOD’S WORD. Certainly intellectually I can affirm that God and His Word are TRUSTWORTHY.

HOW does one get the intellectual assent to the Scripture down fully in their heart/ whole being/ spirit/ bone marrow etc? That can be a desperately felt yearning for many of us at many points in our lives.

Attachment Disorder has literally resulted in our brains being permanently damaged in such areas as emotional trusting; relationship trusting etc. That’s not an easy thing to overcome. One doesn’t just snap one’s fingers and jump over that line.

So what CAN one functionally, actively do toward fulfilling your exhortation?

I’m voting for neither one of them. I have to stand before the Lord one day, and I already repented of voting for a lesser evil just to save our skins in 2008 to no avail.

NARL said this about Romney!

Yes, I agree totally. By not endorsing the RINOs the ground is plowed: the people understand that true conservatism has not been tried in America since perhaps the first Reagan's term.

You can't move the masses unless you are first understood by the masses. For example, if Bachmann endorses Romney Bachmann becomes that image that the media created of her: an off-kilter woman with plenty of air between the ears and a political ambition that has replaced principles.

With all due respect to her personally, politically and on principle, she has not become what the media portrayed....she has proven that they were correct about her all along.

Further, I think she and Santorum have done major damage to a sizable portion of their supporters with their bait-and-switch...ok....let's call a spade a spade: they lied to their supporters.

Newt did too, but his followers were already realpolitik enough to overcome it.

Those janus-faced also-rans have done much to keep conservatives out of politics and on the sidelines not just in the potus race as you advocate, but down-ticket too. They got crushed and they're going to stay home and lick their wounds, childish as it may be.

MEANWHILE, this morning millions of little kids are going to public skrools eating an extra free-meal morning noon and afterschool, dumping all of their personal crayons into the communal crayon bucket and "sharing" their personal property to be "fair."

In 20 years we'll be where France is and those kids will be fainting for the latest leftist liar. What's the plan to fix the kids?

Thank you so much for your encouragements and for your inquiry, though truly I am not credentialed to answer questions about psychological problems.

All I can contribute is in reference to this:

HOW does one ‘force’ one’s self to Love or Love more;

Forcing will not work much like covering one's ears, closing one's eyes, humming, jumping up and down thinking "I believe" will not work.

The best a person can do, IMHO, is to be aware of when he is being self-absorbed and consciously stop thinking about himself and instead think about Who God IS.

THAT’S CERTAINLY an EXCELLENT exhortation.

THX.

LUB DEAR SISTER IN CHRIST.
