VOTING FOR ROMNEY IS TO VOTE FOR THE DEATH OF AMERICA
May 6, 2012 | GoldenEagles

VOTING FOR ROMNEY
IS TO VOTE FOR THE
DEATH OF AMERICA

Allowing homosexuals to serve openly and proudly in the U.S. Military is the single worst thing that has ever happened in American history. That infamous act of the U.S. Congress and the U.S. President, has cut America off from any further access to the resources of Divine Providence. You want to be like other nations? Now you will get the chance.

Romney supported this infamy, and if elected, Romney will block any attempt to reverse it. Therefore, a vote for Romney is a vote to seal this infamy into the fabric of the American identity, and thus to seal America’s fate in self-destruction.

Make no mistake. To vote for Romney is to put your signature on the death certificate that records the Suicide of America. All of this other stuff means nothing.

Even though God’s Prophets have made this clear in their teachings recorded over the last 3,000 years, the people have clearly lost the capacity to appreciate the consequences of defiance and disobedience before God’s Law. Indeed, without vision, the people perish. It is so written. The consequences have always been self-destruction and slavery.

Many say, “Where is the hand of Divine Providence? Show it to me. Then I will believe.”

You cannot see the hand of Divine Providence with your physical eyes, but only by the eyes of the soul. Our Founding Fathers had these eyes open (check out George Washington’s First Inaugural Address) and so too the founding generations of America.

The American people today, however, have these eyelids drooping down unto sleep. They doze in living daylight, in a twilight zone of moral relativism.

If one cannot see, with the eyes of the soul, the role that Divine Providence plays in every dimension of national health, then it is impossible to appreciate this essential component of our national survival, and thus, the people can be led easily astray by the forces of darkness — who are masters at stirring up false hopes, and making false promises — to do things that compromise, and thus make evermore dysfunctional, this most important mechanism of our national survival.

Here we see exactly why it is, that without vision, the people perish. Without the vision of the soul, without these eyes that report the essential nature of the intercession of Divine Providence, the people have no way of appreciating it, no way of understanding it, and thus they know not how to keep it operating for their benefit, and are led into doing really stupid things that cause this all important spigot to be shut off.

That is where we are today. By this act of rebellion, making what God our Father has defined as an abomination in his sight, into a national virtue, and using the full force and authority of the massive machinery of the federal government to promulgate this corruption on an international scale, the spigot of Divine Providence has been cut off. Not a drop issues forth therefrom.

While we may for a time live on the largesse brought forward by the obedience of previous generations unto God’s Law, which allowed great blessings to be poured down upon America from on high, eventually these will be consumed, and we will find ourselves standing in a desert, by comparison to the oasis of liberty handed to us by our forefathers.

Now we see the value of school prayer. Now we see it. This organic institution was designed by God, and intended by God, to keep the vision of the people alive at the level of the soul. This traditional effort to keep alive within the collective soul-awareness of the nation, this all-important truth, that if a nation is to remain secure, free, and prosperous, it must have the intercession of Divine Providence in a multitude of dimensions, and that this intercession must be called forth by the people, we see now, is absolutely essential to the very survival of our nation.

School Prayer was banned nationwide by the U.S. Supreme Court 50 years ago. And thus, the deep shadow of moral relativism, promulgated by the forces of darkness, have had 50 years to attach itself, unopposed, to the American Mind.

50 years later, we find our nation teetering on the very edge of the abyss of national suicide, with one part of the population rushing madly forward, and another part holding back, but losing ground, being dragged forward and over by what appears to be an irresistible tide.

And the question is, will the Republican Party follow the crowd in their headlong rush over the edge and into the embrace of the gaping darkness? Or take a step back, and pull the whole nation thereby back from the brink?

Make no mistake. A heart that supports homosexual rights is a heart of darkness, in rebellion against the Law of God. Therefore, voting for Romney is a choice to take yet another step forward into the darkness, perhaps the last step the nation will take, finding that there is no longer any solid ground under our feet, and no way to make a retreat, a crash landing the only future that life has left to offer us.

There is only one path that leads back to the restoration of American prosperity. Only one path, the intercession of Divine Providence must be restored. We must begin moving back in that direction now. And the Republican Party must lead the way. The Republican Party must plant this standard of sanity firmly upon the battleground of political ideas, and defend it. If not, the nation is lost.

No true conservative can vote pro-homosexual. That means that no true conservative can cast a vote for Romney. What does it mean to be a conservative? It means that you are interested in conserving the traditional values that have made America strong. This is for the survival of America. These traditional values are part of our Judeo-Christian Heritage. One of the most important of these values is obedience before the Laws of God. God defined homosexuality as an abomination the spread of which must be opposed in any culture. All legislative assemblies in America, from her founding were obedient to this mandate. And what was the result? America rose to super power status as a beacon of freedom unto the world. As America abandons this posture of strength, and embraces the foolish idea of homosexual virtue, where is America now? It is no coincidence that the homosexual movement is achieving its greatest gains, as America, for the first time in its history, is falling into second rate status among nations. As the homosexual movement gets stronger, America gets weaker. Why? Because God refuses to invest any more of his strength into a nation that believes it is an act of wisdom to rebel against his laws.

Voting for Romney would simply continue this judgment upon America, as Romney is just as pro-homosexual as Obama.

Since when did you become the official to define true conservative?

I'm as true, or more true, conservative than you and I think your post is absurd.

I don’t think you can selectively say that homosexuality is banned, and yet choose not to live by the other rules. You can perhaps argue that the New Testament got rid of the food restrictions, but it lifted nothing as it relates to the female menstrual cycle. Are you obedient to the old law in every letter?

To assert that the New Covenant lifted nothing pertaining to the female menstrual cycle is an absurd 'argument' from silence. You would do just as well to assume, were there no statute or case law about some particular subject under the Constitution, that the Articles of Confederation are still in effect. The Old Covenant Law was nailed to the Cross - in its entirety. It is not longer in force. We are dead to it. We live under the New Covenant. Period. No pun intended.

Cordially,

Why do you think Romney ran in one of the most liberal states in the union? Because he is a liberal, that’s why. He could have never won in a conservative leaning state.
Romney is who he is because of his mormonism not in spite of it.
Romney is a liberal, he always has been and he always will be.

Yes it is, but you also have to start wondering if some of these folks aren't Obama supporters in Conservative clothing.

In my opinion JR has done a disservice to himself and his site by being so anti Romney that people from DU, Move On and other ultra liberal sites have managed to sneak in as real conservatives and sow discontent.

To Spew that kind of garbage, you must be working for Obama Reelection or just off your meds. If re-elected Obama will make us Greece in short order. Obama is a Marxist Muslim.

On the contrary, GoldenEagles is working with the founder and owner of this site, who agrees that a vote for Romney is a vote for the death of America.

ObamaRomney are both demons. A pox on them both.

billva quotes (post 250) with approval Conservative Vermont Vet, "I'm very close to bagging it with Free Republic as there are way too many here who want to put so called "Principles" (phony though they may be) above the survival of our Country."

You can see how Romney is dragging the Republican Party into the very shadow of insanity, when good Republicans believe that living by principle will destroy the country. This is a very sorry state of affairs. As if obeying the Laws of God could be a "phony principle."

I see that you have never studied the principle of Divine Providence, and you are not aware of the central importance of that principle, and thus, you are in an untethered state where you can be tempted to trample on it, in pursuit of the mirage of victory held out before you by an individual who fits the definition of a false christ (Romney). I would encourage you to take some time to study the principle of Divine Providence, and come to understand this truth, that the temptation and manipulation of the Children God to ignore this central principle, is the root cause of all the problems that America faces.

This is absolutely true. I have debated homosexuals and their sympathizers on many forums, and while there are some exceptions, the general rule they follow is just to bash their opponents with mud balls of character assastination. Here we have right on the table this principle of Divine Providence, a shining jewel, and they can't bring themselves to even address it. If all of this is so absurd to them, they should be able to stand up and tell us why Divine Providence is not a principle we should be concerned with. Not one Romney supporter has even come close to addressing the issue. And that should tell them something.

This comment goes to show you that over the course of your life thus far, you have spent zero time trying to understand the principle of Divine Providence. That you have no basis of experience or knowledge that would indicate to you that the person who brings up the principle of Divine Providence is actually the best friend of your soul, and the best friend of America. Again, read the First Inaugural Address of George Washington. As the man who led the American Revolution to victory, he was a firm believer in the importance of Divine Providence, that America would have never been established without it. My thoughts on the subject are in harmony with the beliefs of George Washington on this subject. And when you characterize these beliefs as absurd, you are voicing opposition to the beliefs of George Washington, something I know you don’t intend, but this is true, because of your lack of knowledge in this area. Again, I would encourage you to read George Washington’s inaugural address, and then come back and debate this issue on the basis of our founding principles. An invitation to reason, that is all that I am placing before you here.

Diamond says, “The Old Covenant Law was nailed to the Cross - in its entirety. It is not longer in force.”

I think this statement needs some clarification. The Master Jesus Christ referred to the need to obey the law on many occasions. My whole argument here is really based on the proposition that we are required to obey the Law of Moses on the subject of Sexual Relations, that this law remains in force. And a nation that rebels against the Law is not qualified to receive the blessings of Divine Providence. Perhaps the harshness of the judgment related to the breaking of the law has been mitigated by the advent of Christ, but the need to obey has not been eliminated. The need to encourage obedience has not been eliminated. The principle of repentance was surely carried forward from the old to the new. Jesus said he came to fulfill the law and the prophets, not to destroy them. In relationship to Mary M. Jesus stopped the people from stoning her to death, but he also said to her, “Go and sin no more.” Are we still on the same page?

I particularly find interesting the one from John Jay that it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers. He calls it a duty. If that is true and wise then it would exclude both Romney and Obama from consideration for my vote because Romney is a Mormon, not a Christian, and Obama is just a crypto communist, wearing a christian mask, or whatever mask happens to suit him at any given moment.

Of course this is not to mention, as Finny has pointed out, Romney "state-run health care, cap-and-trade global warming ecotyranny, forced acceptance of open homosexuality everywhere from kids' schools to the military, appointing activist liberal judges, and the most chillingly barbaric of all, making tax-subsidized abortion available on demand." Ditto from Obama. I trust either of them about as far as I can throw a Bösendorfer grand piano.

Let me just use this post to answer several of yours to me.

First, I am not about to debate you on any issue, your mind is closed or you are hiding who you really are.

Either way debating someone who is putting your turn on events is a waste of time and I am not going to do so.

But anyone who thinks it's better to have Obama than Romney has their head stuck where the sun doesn't shine.

We are not required to obey the Law of Moses because that Law was nailed to the cross. It was only intended for Israelites anyway. We are required to obey the Law of Christ. You can, for example find every one of the Ten Commandments except the Sabbath Commandment repeated in the New Testament. The reason for that is that the Sabbath was the SIGN of the Old Covenant. Just because the Old Covenant is no longer in force does not mean that the New Covenant does not have Commandments or condemn the same sorts of evil forbidden in the old Covenant. But The law of the Spirit of Life has set us free from the law of sin and death.

Look at it this way. We're not under the Articles of Confederation anymore, but that doesn't mean that laws against murder and sexual immorality are no longer binding.

Katrina says, “Romney loves America ...”

I would like to know on what basis you believe that.

Actions speak louder than words.

Romney preyed on failing American business to make his fortune.

And he keeps his fortune locked away in offshore accounts.

But most importantly, during the years when America was in the fight for its life against the encroachment of Soviet surrogate states in Central America, where was Romney? Feet tell the story. He walked away from Reagan and the Republican Party in those days. He had no feelings of affection for the ongoing fight against Soviet expansionism, Communist expansionism in those years.

I believe your statement has no basis. It is just wishful thinking. I look at what he DID in the 1980’s and that tells us who he really is.

Romney loves money and power. That is different than loving America. Loving America means loving the principles that make us unique on the planet. And Romney’s heart is an electrode of opposition to those principles.

Mitt Romney chose as his NATIONAL SECURITY and FOREIGN AFFAIRS spokesman, an open homosexual. He did this consciously.

This tells us that Mitt Romney has ZERO sense as to the importance of Divine Providence, for truly, God cannot bless the mind of a homosexual with any degree of wisdom, beyond that which would set him free from the state of slavery to demonic forces in which the homosexual is trapped. But the homosexual looks upon that wisdom with disdain and mockery.

The mind of a homosexual therefore, is in a posture that rejects the Light of God. That mind is a dark as a cavernous cave ten miles below the surface of the earth.

In a homosexual, we have a soul chained to an imperative of rebellion against God's Law. And Romney sets a person like that up in a position of honor and respect, and as a mouthpiece of wisdom on the all-important issue of National Security.

This allows us to conclude, that Romney would receive no assistance, no guidance himself from God in the running of the country, and therefore, he would run the ship onto rocks at every possible opportunity, no less than Obama.

Let not the Republican Party be associated with Godlessness.

If you know anything about Massachusetts, you know that Romney was not the first republican governor to win in that state. Starting with William Weld, another full out liberal, continuing with Paul Cellucci and Jane Swift, there were three republican governors in Massachusetts in succession immediately before Romney. So I doubt proving that a republican could win in that state was high on Romney’s list.

Other than believing Romney would do or say anything to any one in order to win their vote, I would never attempt to guess what Romney is thinking on any subject.

I find it ironic that nominating a Mormon (who is the grandson of a polygamist) may very well be the death of a party that was founded, in large part, against Mormons and their practice of polygamy.

I cannot, in good conscience, ever vote for Mitt Romney.

Romney is Just a Pawn in
the Divide and Conquer
Tactics of the Dark Side.

Many valuable principles were brought to the Light of Day, by the teachings of the Master Jesus Christ, and his Apostles. For example, St. Paul said, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

Indeed, the “rulers of darkness of this world” a very important principle.

We see how the forces of darkness can manipulate large groups of people, in this case, Romney supporters, by the energy of blind hatred, in the pursuit of an agenda that trashes the Will of God, in a manner no less egregious than we see in the policies supported by Obama. Romney supporters in this regard are like leaves on a strong current, having become completely unanchored to principle, and having no inherent power in their own souls to swim against the tide. As the current pulls them along, they are trapped in the most self-destructive response patterns as well. As people tell them they are being swept in the direction of destruction, all they do is raise their middle finger into your face.

The teaching of the Master from Luke 6:46-49 is especially instructive in this regard: 46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? 47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: 48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. 49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.

The Master was speaking to this situation exactly, where people, having lost their anchor to the principles expounded by Jesus Christ, are lifted up and swept away in the strong currents of hatred that the “rulers of darkness of this world” send in their direction as a mighty storm.

Of course, in evaluating this teaching, if it is to make any sense, one must bring to mind something that Jesus Christ said, in terms of admonishment, which would be applicable in this situation. For example, the teaching the Master gave in Matthew 22:37-40, might be the single most important place to begin: 36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Here the Master Jesus Christ is giving us the key to what it means to be anchored to the rock of which he spoke. To love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

And what does it mean to have such a love?

The fullness of this love is far from any of us, I must admit. But there are portions of the soul that have been set free in many that allow the posture of simple respect to take hold.. We can say, to love/respect God, means to love/respect his purposes. To love/respect God means to love/respect his laws. To have such a love/respect means to have His purposes, and his Laws at the center of our attention. This is a characteristic of love/respect. That which you love/respect is always at the center of your attention. And when we have these things at the center of our attention, we know and understand that obedience before God’s Laws is required before we can receive the blessings of Divine Providence.

That is the most important point when it comes to the survival of America.

To vote for an individual who has rebellion against the Laws of God in his heart, such an act of support, for a rebellious heart, will result in the further cutoff of the resources of Divine Providence for our nation, and indeed, it will come to pass as the Master promised, “the ruin of that house was great.”

The most simple application of the Teachings of Christ tell us clearly, that to vote for Romney is to vote for ruin.

And in this way are the “rulers of darkness of this world” tempting the Children of God to leave the rock, and flow in the direction of this blind hatred for Obama. And this is a powerful temptation because none of us have any degree of appreciation for Obama's leadership in our souls. But the temptation this time around is too blatant. Too obvious. Obama and Romney are one heart when it comes to rebellion against God.

We see therefore, that the wave to support Romney is really a strategy of the “rulers of darkness of this world” to divide the Republican Party to such an extent, where the re-election of Obama will be assured.

The conscience of a Christian will never allow a vote for Romney. A vote for Romney requires us to turn our back on the clear teachings of Christ above. Yes, to go in the direction where we know the end from the beginning, and the ruin of that house was great.”

Perhaps America has followed this downward path, where we currently teeter on the very edge of an economic abyss for this very reason, that we have fallen for this temptation time and time again over the last 50 years.

Yes, Romney is Just a Pawn in the Divide and Conquer Tactics of the Dark Side. A pawn moved into position in a relentless manner, and played at a point in the game where checkmate appears to be a certainty. Yet we have more moves left to us. The game is not over.

The only hope for the Republican Party to win in this election cycle is to come up with a candidate that does not require us to turn our back on the Teachings of Christ to win.

As I noted before, 2012 is the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. I am reminded that the Titanic sunk at the point where it had entered a cold arctic current. The testimony of witnesses told of the drastic drop in temperature just before the unsinkable ship hit the iceberg. I think this could be a metaphor for the cold shoulder in the direction of the Teachings of Christ that are characteristic of Romney supporters. They clearly have a cold shoulder in the direction of the principle of Divine Providence, i.e. the desire of God to bless His Children, if they would only find in their hearts a respectful reason to be obedient to his laws.

You are not dead to the law. I am not dead to the law. Ever heard of Jesus’ sermon as relates to the Old Law? Essentially those laws are still “en force”, but he gave a different perspective to each law.

Period.

The fact is that electing EITHER Obozo or Robamney will mean the end of the Republic. In addition, the election of Robamney would also end the GOP. Lugar got what he deserved on Tuesday night but he was more conservative than Plastic Man. Many conservatives don’t want to feel powerless and just cannot recognize the reality that Robamney’s nomination means that, on the POTUS level, they ARE powerless until at least 2016. Therefore, they lie to themselves as Ann Coulter does and simply crown the evil leftist sociopathic liar Robamney as an honorary “conservative” and figure that they have solved the problem.

Amen.

“”You want a unity speech? I’ll give you a unity speech. I don’t care who our candidate is.

I haven’t since the beginning of this... ask not what the candidate can do for you, ask what you can do for the candidate!

And that’s what the Tea Party is.

We are there to confront [the radical left] on behalf of our candidate!

I will march behind who ever our candidate is. Because if we don’t, we lose.

There are two paths! There are two paths! One is America, the other is Occupy! One is America, the other is Occupy! And I don’t care, and along the way... I’ve realized over the last three years that the Republican Party and the conservative movement is not what ABC, CBS and NBC put on the screen.

They try to portray you in the worst possible light... and when I travel around the United States meeting people in the Tea Party who care — black, white, gay, straight — anyone that’s willing to stand next to me to fight the progressive left, I will be in that bunker, and if you’re not in that bunker ‘cause you’re not satisfied with this candidate, more than shame on you. You’re on the other side.””

I am in that bunker Andrew, missing you because, yes, this is WAR.

May God give us strength, and guide our course.

Amen! God bless you. I will plug my nose and vote the straight GOP Ticket to save America from the marxist Hussein & his food fascist wife.
