Skip to comments.A place where the bills never comes due
Posted on 11/08/2012 8:23:02 PM PST by Jim Robinson
We (all of us except the godless social democrats) hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Godless social democrats don't believe in the Creator, nor do they believe in unalienable rights, nor do they believe in Equality for all men, nor do they believe in Liberty, nor do they believe in Life. And they have no concept of what "pursuit of Happiness" even means. They believe government holds unlimited power over us and can dictate how we conduct our lives and how much of the fruits of our labor we're "allowed" for ourselves.
The Declaration and the Constitution are just quaint documents from a bygone era and no longer apply. Worse, they are flawed documents written by evil rich white men. And they were never intended to restrict government or defend individual liberty, much less sovereignty.
The rest of the modern world has gone socialist with big government providing cradle to grave safety nets, free vacations, free health care, free abortions, free birth control, free sex change operations, free lunch, approval of homosexual marriage and whatever else you can dream of. It's a socialist utopia. No guns. No war. No violence. No poverty. And the bill will never come due.
They just can't understand why we right-wing nuts stubbornly refuse to go along with the beautiful program they have planned for us.
God forbid that a black person or a Hispanic person or a woman or a homosexual person would ever be a God worshiping, pro-life, pro-family, pro-small government, pro-America conservative who believes in our Founding principles or in equality, Life and Liberty or that capitalism is the system that offers the most opportunity for himself and his posterity. He/she would have to be an Uncle Tom or a traitor to the socialist cause.
Well, history has shown that the bill always comes due. And the bell may be tolling for socialist Europe right now. We won't be far behind if we don't hold fast to our God, our Constitution and our guns.
Thanks JR, for this site and your thoughts!
Jim, you were so effing right about Mitt Romney.
I felt the same way but wavered when he got the nomination.
Newt, Cain, Bachman, Perry, Santorum...... Oh what might have been.
Well said Jim, and thanks for the post.
Right on, Jim. The bell is tolling.
It is a strange world that liberalism seeks to foist upon all. . It is a world in which there are to be no moral absolutes, in particular those that are Biblical, and thus we cannot definitely say that such things as profanity, pornography, pre-marital sex - and killing the life which often results from the latter, are truly wrong.
It is a world which cries separation of Church and State when some vestige of Biblical law or morality is heard in schools, while the religion (belief system) of secular humanism insidiously supplants it.
It is a world in which people seem to see those who are punished for legitimate crimes as victims, where imprisoned felons should vote, and Mr. Arafat the terrorist is seen as a hero.
A world where civil rights and moral wrongs are confused (homosexuality), and are to be foisted upon every man, women and child as wholesome, normal and even necessary.
It is a world in which all who oppose them are labeled intolerant, hateful (and homophobic) bigots, yet it is the liberal world which most often hypocritically censures those who dare disagree with them, and who instead (hopefully) point souls to the beneficial, Biblical way of repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus.
This is ultimately a spiritual issue, as there is an ideology behind liberalism, which is from Hell, that of climbing up some other way (Jn. 10:1) to power, etc. than thru merit, which the devil tried, (Is. 14), and the victim-entitlement mentality which calls the worthy to share the wealth, power and position with those who demand it, and who feel justified in taking it, which the devil worked to instill in Eve. (Gn. 3)
i tell you soberly that todays pre-college (secular seminary) youth are the most open to any ideology than ever before. And as saith Daniel Webster,
If religious books are not widely circulated among the masses in this country,become of us as a nation. If truth be not diffused, error will be; If God and His Word are not known and received, the devil and his works will gain the ascendancy; If the evangelical volume does not reach every hamlet, the pages of a corrupt and licentious literature will;
If the power of the Gospel is not felt throughout the length and breadth of the land, anarchy and misrule, degradation and misery, corruption and darkness will reign without mitigation or end. (Tryon Edwards, A Dictionary of Thoughts: Being a Cyclopedia of Laconic Quotations from the Best Authors of the World, Both Ancient and Modern ,1908. p. 49)
So well stated Jim.
Tears flow readily here in our home now. Our hearts are broken.
America as I knew it in the 40’s is no more.
Indeed Tuesday, November 6th, 2012 was a sad day for the USA.
May God help us.
Been a lot written lately but that is short and precise....worth sharing and repeating.
Jim, you have to understand that the 1-12 indoctrination centers (public schools) have turned out the young voters of the last election and now an even more rabid set have turned out for this election. On top of that, the finishing schools for liberal zombies (college) has also unleashed a new batch on us too.
Rome fell due to the sole attention of “bread and circuses” and now it’s our turn. Free stuff, no one responsible for their actions, “if it feels good...do it, and a whole host of irresponsible actions due to the lack of punishment and enforcement of laws and rules.
The only hope is a viable and strong third party or outright revolution to restore dignity, order and to protect our heritage and Constitution as written.
Don't forget, They're also anti-military and want to take weapons away from us all....
Thanks Jim for this post. Couldn’t agree more with what you’ve stated.
Sure glad I joined FreeRepublic a few years ago. Shoulda done it sooner so I wouldn’t be known as a “Newbie”. :^)
Jim, you are absolutely correct. The statist doesn’t recognize God, and doesn’t recognize that we have eternal souls. Because of that there are no inalienable rights and to the statist, a man is nothing more than a piece of meat, to be disposed of as the state sees fit.
There will be one we foot in this world, and one in the next because .......
Hebrews 9:27 And it is appointed once for man to die and after this, the judgment.
In the wake of a crappy election and you dealing with PITA website issues, your contribution to people’s lives, and I’ll speak for myself - mine, intentional and not intentional, is ... pretty damn big in comparison.
Thanks for the work and care ...
The Big Rock Candy Mountain:
“The Declaration and the Constitution are just quaint documents from a bygone era and no longer apply. “ Scalia said as much today when he mentioned how hard it is to be an originalist in this era. Can we ever go back?
Thanks for your insights, always so well expressed.
I think we all have to be very worried for the future of our Constitutional Republic after Tuesday’s tragedy. We all need to double down on our commitment over the next four years to try to hold the damage done to a minimum. It will be hard work, and discouragements many.
Free Republic will become even more important to our lives than ever before, so let’s all recommit to supporting JIm with all we have.
I was about to post the lyrics to that! You beat me to it!
I agree and finally, even mr. mm is seeing the light and is motivated to do what we can on our house while we still have the money, while it's still worth something, and while the materials to do it are still available.
The idea is to get as self-sufficient as possible.
It won't be what I had ultimate plans for. It's too late for that now.
Very well stated, Jim. Those sentiments are exactly why I am a proud contributing member of Free Republic. Carry on, Sir!
Jim, this is your best post ever.
Thank you very much.
By the way, our traffic more than doubled on election day and the server held up very well after John installed the new nginx software package. We had 478,559 visits from 273,808 unique visitors and delivered 2,926,290 pageviews. We peaked at 214,298 pageviews per hour at 6:00 pm pacific. In the days prior we were peaking at around 75,000 pageviews per hour and couldn’t handle the load. We had been averaging just over a million pageviews per day. I’d say John did fine.
the bill comes due, justice demands it.
After the Depression and bankruptcy and ensuing war ... the country will be pro-life by mid-century. A poorer America, no longer a world power. But a Republic again. (In the meantime, the suffering that the liberal suburbanites will endure will surpass anything the church goes through. They are spiritually unfit, and unable to handle the coming adversity.)
I refuse to throw my cards in. Even though it seems like all I am holding is a handful of worthless cards ... 7-3-3-4-9-6-6 ... a pair of threes and a pair of sixes. Is that a full house or two pair?
That’s two of a kind working on a full house.
Thanks for providing us this forum in which to meet other patriots.
We peaked at 214,298 pageviews per hour at 6:00
Not bad, and more impressive given that (I think) he was still battling DB stuff.
The nerds never get the credit ... of course, that just increases our virtue in terms of humility, we tell ourselves.
In-memory application level dataset caching for probably 15 seconds or 30 seconds is the secret to going to 1 Million views per hour. Session level for configuration of the site for individual users, maybe some abstraction can be done there too. But it sounds like John has a handle on it. Fiddling with DB interaction during busy times is always ... not smart ...
Best til next time ...
This is an absolute truth and one that is true for ALL time and for ALL people.
God bless you, JR, for all the good you do. The rewards you will reap can never be taken away from you. Thank you for your faithfulness.
Well, if there is no need for a constitution anymore, we won’t need a Supreme Court either!
And Obama has already stated that there’s no need for a congress either. He’d be much more flexible and could get much more accomplished if he did not have to deal with congress. Harry Reid agrees. Don’t need no steenking congress to pass a law. And Nancy Pelosi says you have to vote for it so you can find out what’s in it. Justice is not the only blind institution. The socialists have all the answers. Don’t need no little people interfering with their plans.
Jim, you are absolutely correct. The statist doesnt recognize God, and doesnt recognize that we have eternal souls. Because of that there are no inalienable rights and to the statist, a man is nothing more than a piece of meat, to be disposed of as the state sees fit.
Well THIS little people ain't going to go quietly into that good night! As long as I'm alive, I plan to be interfering every chance I get!!! And I do not think I'm alone in this.
