"WHY ARE THE FOOLISH IN CHARGE OF AMERICA?
The Ignorant Fishermen Blog ^ | 5/8/09 | David Cloud

Posted on 07/21/2009 1:12:26 PM PDT by The Ignorant Fisherman

Conservative web journalists and radio talk show hosts are beside themselves at the stupidity of the Obama administration, and rightly so. We, too, bewail the squander of America's wealth, the weakening of her military, the traitorous, despicable mishandling of the CIA, the celebration of moral wickedness, the encroachment of constitutional liberties, the blind commitment to environmental myths, and so much more. While Bush conducted a war on terrorism (though he didn't really take off the gloves), Obama appears to be conducting a war on the war on terrorism.

All of these things, though, are mere symptoms of a deeper problem, one that very few of the conservative pundits understand. America's root problem is the apostasy and compromise of her churches. The problem is not in the White House; it is in God's house. America is not a Christian nation, but America was founded largely by church-going, God-fearing people and the majority of her citizens are still professing Christians.

Because all the people who know how to run the country are too busy giving haircuts and driving cabs.

52% are now in the wagon and the rest of us are pulling it.

I really think, although I wish it were not so, that we are in for Divine Justice......

Exactly. The observation of Alexander Tytler spot on:

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until a majority of voters discover that they can vote themselves largess out of the public treasury.

The foolish are running America because some stubborn people decided to sit out the election. It is a classic example of cutting off one’s nose to spite their face.

Very well stated. But there’s one pundit I know of who’s an evangelical, and may see this from a Biblical perspective....Ann Coulter!

Or it might be a classic example of playing chess instead of checkers, planning more than one move ahead to let the leftists push their extremists agenda until the nation pushes back and installs conservatives once again.

Looks like it might be working. The next few months will tell.

That may well be.. but she never preaches Christ just conservatism. Conservatism with out Christ is bankrupted. She should state more about her relationship to the Savior of the world.

Exactly!

Too damned many unemployed, clueless lawyers. That seems to be all that have the time and political pull to get elected these days.

“WHY ARE THE FOOLISH IN CHARGE OF AMERICA?

Because American taxpayers have been forced to underwrite the reproduction of so many “foolish” in America.

Hater...wow!...at ease... When? I never her her give the Gospel of Christ any. It's not in any of her books..etc... If one professes to know Christ it should not be so hard to find. I know that she wears across and has a “Christian conservative faith”..but that doesn't mean you are saved..

I love her don't get me wrong... All I was saying it is not clear as would be that of David Limbaugh's testimony

There are still too many people who listen to the mainstream media and trust the government. That's a big part of the reason we have idiots like Obama and Pelosi running the country. Another big reason is too many people aren't paying attention.

The good news is that we are starting to see the start of an angry backlash happening because of this push for Obamacare. God Bless those of Christian faith and all other good Americans who are standing up to President Obama.

Love the sentiment; now all we need are some conservative willing to be put through the vetting process of 0bama's propaganda department, aka CBSNBCABCCNN, et al.

I have an older brother who has two Masters degrees, just got laid off from a firm in Wall Street, who thinks Obama is doing great. Go figure!

yeah, sorry about that Fisherman. I'm a little over-protective of Ann. She knows why (wink, wink). LOL! I have heard her several times in interviews say the words Jesus Christ. And she mentions God quite often in her book "Godless- The Church of Liberalism." Not necessarily a determination of salvation, but that book begins with a quote from Romans 1:25-26:

"The exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creation rather than the Creator...Therefore, God gave them up to passions of dishonor; for the females exchanged the natural use for that which is contrary to nature."

But I know what you mean. She isn't outspoken about her spiritual condition, but my feeling is that she does what she is good at; exposing liberals. And boy do they need it!
