Okay, I get the sentiment - but in a practical basis - what does that mean? How do you walk that one out? Do you just not care any more if you are taxed or regulated into the poor house? Do you quit supporting causes like, oh, pro life or sanctity of marriage? Will you be happy to hear from the Obama Care death panel now? I mean, you can walk away from the system, but the system will not walk away from you.
What does it matter? The Representatives we send to Washington, for the these reasons we’re sending them there, turn out to be closet left-wing Regressive Progladytes who, through their actions, show they love and admire Obama and only pretended to be Conservative so the “Idiot Rubes” back home would elect them.
Indeed. They system will not walk away from you, no matter what you do. Good walk down memory lane here, but the conclusion is that no one will be ever left to mind their own life again:http://www.fredoneverything.net/Guns.shtml
Yeah. You just have to keep promoting these totally unprincipled sleazebags because they say the right things for a few months, long enough to get themselves elected to a position where you and I do not matter any more. As a representative or governor or senator his future is paved with satin by the money thrown at him in his first term and he does not have to rely on even being re-elected for that Easy Street address, though it would be nice. He does what he has to do to get elected and then does what he has to do to get himself financially insulated. So far, our Tea Party heroes have more often than not, proven to be plain old generic politicians. I cheer when a Cruz stands up for principle but that is just today. How many days can/will he keep that up when he is denying himself Ease and access to fashionable cocktail parties? I have no faith in any of them.
I’ll answer as if you were asking me those questions. I get hung up on all this stuff and wring my hands over what’s going to happen. I think, however, the answer is to trust God and get close to Him.
He was the one who gave us this glorious nation to begin with. He stirred the hearts of godly men to fight for what we have. He can do it again, but only if we’re close to Him. There is a practical definition for this. Reading His word and talking to Him. Read Philippians 4 (KJV because I doubt the other version’s credibility because they were translated in the age of Postmodernism and utilize dynamic equivalence).
CEW: “You can walk away from the system, but the system will not walk away from you.”
That sums it up. I understand the poster’s sentiments, but the left won’t leave us alone. They mean to control our children, our property, and even our bodies.
During the Obamacare debate I made phone calls and wrote letters. What happened? Eighty percent of the country did not want it - we were ignored and it got crammed down our throats. CJ Roberts turns against the right and says it is Constitutional. The Repub govs we thought would stop it are now accepting the money.
The system is broke and I think beyond repair. I am stocking up and hunkering down. The system will collapse - can you say Atlas Shrugged - and there will be hell to pay all over and everyone will pay it. Severe times are ahead and we will all suffer. I will suffer knowing Christ is my Lord and Savior.
