    Proves they don’t care what the public wants - just wear them out and let them slink home.

    With that mindset (Obama has this too), we need more action to stop this. When our views mean nothing, our actions need to remove those people in office. Get ready for 2010 and the elections. There must be massive numbers voting them out no matter how much the dems user voter fraud.

    Right - because the heart of America states are the ones that are prosperous, know how to run a government and are not afraid of God.

    So, if they then want to join, they join under our constitution, our laws, our leadership and the Washington mess can handle fewer and fewer people.

    Maybe then Obama’s administration will not need ways to “kill off” its population with rationing healthcare, aborting up to age 2 and the demented. They can just sit around and be “elite rulers” who show their ignorance and third-world country worship all over the world.

    We will live our lives as Americans and keep America for our grandchildren.

    I know it is a pipe dream - but do we just sit back and allow America to be destroyed? We created America once, maybe God would be with us to create America again.

    Fortunately my state is great. Of course I don’t monitor Texas as close as I do national, but my senators Kay Bailey Hutchinson and John Cornyn are wonderful and true.

    And Gov. Perry is saying Texas will not participate in the new health plan because it will bankrupt us.

    I am looking more and more favorably at succession as the answer.

    How can we change corrupt Washington - the corruption is rampant and good representatives are swallowed up? We can’t fight the media.

    So, sucede and form a smaller America with good government, a good constitution. Maybe other states would follow suit and we could band together cleaning up what is being done to America. Let Obama have Washington, NY, Calif. and Fla. and let him set up his socialistic empire, cap and trade, health care killing off the weak, those “not having comprehension” (babies below 2 and the elderly). Let him try and survive with those that voted for him.

    But, I want the America of the heart of the country. I don’t want the elitist east - I’m satisfied with the likes of a Sarah.

    Well we can joke about this all through the threads.....

    But, this proves we are confronted with pure evil in Obama.

    Any president that would allow a man such as this anywhere near his office, much less in his administration, is evil himself. This proves it.

    I don’t care what the liberal community choses to believe about a fetus. They are evil and want the right to kill others children.

    I am not so dumb as to accept their definition of a person no matter how many “authorities” claim it is true. It is evil, it is a lie, it is satanic. How in the world could a man thinking like that win a government position? No way unless the government wishes to have the power to abort and kill the “unwanted” babies. Changing the definition of personhood is their means to sway opinions.

    Hitler is on the move in America and it is satanic.

    Get hold of your minds to keep your sanity. No matter what they bring us - God will win in the end and we will win as long as we stay faithful to God.

    Choose who you will follow - God - or Satan.

    Well, I sure agree with not meeting defeat. Just afraid people thinking everything will be ok will not realize the truth - that they have to take action now rather than living in la..la land.

    Glenn Beck is on now on Fox - great point - Change Blindness.

    Look at a picture, then take it away and remove something from the picture. Most people looking again will not notice the missing item. This is what Obama is doing. Divert people to another issue and when they return to the first issue - they will not realize something has changed.

    So much is being thrown at us. All the while czars are being put into place, actual communists, people that believe abortion is ok up to 2 yrs and people over 65 have end of life counseling. Middle eastern groups are being invited to be part of his administration.

    WE are being destroyed and people are involved in “change blindness”. So, I can’t agree with “all will be ok” because “all is being set up for destruction as fast as can be done”.

    Another point - “who is creating medical care, who is bringing forth all this change?” Obama goes out and promises anything ...... but the real players are infiltrating our government and putting in legalese that will remove all of our freedom rights and give full power to the socialistic government they are creating.

    All is not alright. How do we fight it?

    The country IS being destroyed by a bunch of politicians right now.

    Obamacare is nothing to worry about? Cap and trade? Ok for Iran to have nukes?

    End of life counseling for those 65 and older every 5 years?
    Rationed healthcare?
    A close advisor to Obama who writes that the demented and those below 2 can be aborted since they do not have ability to comprehend? Nothing to worry about?

    Seems like the same mindset seen in Germany as Hitler was setting up concentration camps and slaughtering people. Never saw the Germans complaining. It took America to go in there and clean that up.

    I’m glad you have a positive attitude - but - sitting by and doing nothing while you have the chance and encouraging others to do the same is almost like democrat tactics to deaden the knowledge of the peons. Sounds like the media to me.

    If you are not willing to fight for what is wrong now - what makes you think you would fight to correct wrongs in a new government.

    Sounds like excuses to do nothing to me.

    Another - “Teach the GOP a lesson” move that gave us Obama, healthcare denied to senior Americans, a socialistic America. Not quite worth the gamble to me.

    Get real - If we lose America, we will not get it back. God was with us in the creation of America and God may be fed up with what we have done with this country.

    I know this is off the charts, and a radical idea .......

    But,

    I am beginning to see the only solution is succession from the U.S. by at least Texas (my state). Why let Obama ruin America for all of us. It might be hard going it alone, but at least we would have a sane government, we could go broke working to save our America (although much smaller) than allowing America to be taken over from within our own government and destroyed.

    If a few states followed suit, maybe they would band together and recreate a smaller America free from the terrors of Obama’s view of America.

    Let Obama have New York, California, Florida and let him pay for their free benefits to all except the working taxpayer. At least he would have to come up with the money from the non-workers, non-Americans and Texas and others of like mind could forge ahead keeping a government based on the constitution.

    Greater good?

    Do they really think the government will not use the same tactics they are putting in place against them?

    Do they really want to kill off their parents for their money? Do they really want their children to kill them off for their money?

    Do they enjoy being mind-numbed peons? Do they really believe they are the “elite” who will rule the peons? Do they really want the state to tell them what they can eat, what they can buy, how long they can live, if they can have medical care?

    Only idiots would wish that instead of freedom. Which mean, they and the “elite press” are the most stupid people in the world to trade in America and freedom for their right to be peons at the mercy of a government that only considers how much they are worth to the state.

    We are seeing America disappear and those idiots are too stupid to realize they are wanting freedom, and the best lifestyle in the world to disappear.

    What a claim to fame for them. They voted in Obama and helped him destroy their own future and the future of their children and grandchildren - all because they hate and want what the “rich” have and don’t want to work for it.

    So interesting ...... “cost effective”

    Who will be determining “cost effective”?

    What does the “cost uneffective” one get to say about its designation?

    What recourse does the “cost uneffective” one have?

    Who does the “Cost uneffective” one feel is not “cost effective”?

    I personally do not think congress is “cost effective”. Afterall, they are hired to write legislation to make laws - yet they cannot find time to “read” written legislation.

    I would think that would call for being determined not “cost effective” or merely utterly worthless and determined to be fired.

    With Sarah on our side we cannot lose.

    She may be the leader of the conservative movement we have been watching for. As that powerhouse, she can rally the masses, call Obama and the dems on their agenda, speak directly to the people, promote other candidates in all the states and, if meant to be, eventually run for president.

    Mark my words - the woman will do things. We have had Rush to teach conservatism. We have the talk radio hosts. And, we have Sarah to use her talents in any number of ways to draw attention to the corruption of Washington, to point out the truth, and to build a new conservative party.

    Let’s turn her loose and support her so she does not have to fight alone.

    Getting embarrassing? Shows that those that are so easily embarrassed by those that do not put utter value in impressions, style, speech, on and on, have no real values in their lives.

    Most people in the “not eastern” parts of the U.S. see life more and more clear and see what is really of value. And, I can guarantee those things of real value do not include being concerned about barnyard animals, being concerned about diction, style, impression.

    We are impressed by the quality of the person, the soul, the mind and look past those frivalous items the “east” so values. Long ago, those things lost interest for me.

    So, they got the “style” they wanted in Obama. And what do they have - a Marxist, socialist, future dictator without any qualms about tearing down our economy, our country, our value system, our medical services and the future of our children and grandchildren.

    They did not even see any of that in the “style”, the “presentation”, the “change”.

    How God responds.....

    I don’t know how to word this effectively - but our choice determines where we spend eternity.

    Satan has power in the world but that power will not win in the end. Why? Because - Christians cannot lose if they remain faithful to God. They have eternal life and Satan cannot take that from them - unless they chose to follow Satan instead of God.

    So evil can harm our physical body, can torture, can kill - but the Christian gets eternal life and they cannot touch that.

    Many of the Christians have had this choice and their choice determines who they follow - God or Satan.

    A hard hard choice but would you prefer to give up your eternal life for a few years more in the world with Satan and an eternity without God?

    Your first paragraph I agree with. We all cheer for our “team”. Which is really silly - we should be combing the Bible for God's wishes - not our prejudices. Just because we were raised in a culture believing in a way, does not mean that is God's way.

    We just forget just “who” is God and “who” is man. Who are we to tell God what salvation is? Who are we to tell God, if I do this and believe this, you will save me because that is what I believe.

    If we get the hierarchy correct, things fall into place. God - Jesus - man. Not man - god - Jesus.

    You have good questions we have probably all felt one time or another —— Why this way?

    Reading the Old Testament is so interesting and scary at the same time. We see God loved his people the Jews. He did everything for them but time after time after time they turned and disobeyed. He sent them off for punishment but then would see their torment and forgive them again and again. He loved them but they would not love and obey His commands.

    When Jesus came bringing in the new law of salvation, they refused to believe in Jesus expecting a man of power and royalty to be their Savior - not a mere carpenter. They even tried to hold to the old laws and not accept the new law of grace. They tried to trap him, to kill him because they were stubborn, and would not believe.

    But God then opened his salvation to the Gentiles and all. Whoever believes in Jesus and follows God's instructions for salvation will be saved and will be His people.

    All through the Bible you see God threngthening them with dire consequences to warn them. Yet, if they changed their ways and followed God's way, those consequences never came to pass. The reason? We have a jealous God. He is to be feared. Full of love, but also He will not stand for our turning to man made idols to worship them instead of Him.
    I ask why were they so stupid and stubborn. You see this in Kings in the Old Testament - each King was determined worthy or not by what they did about idols in their kingdom. If they did not tear them down - it was noted.

    The devil? The unity of God or God-Jesus-The Holy Spirit is not at all challenged by Satan. Satan has power in this world because God allows him that power.

    Yet, in the end after whatever man's time will be, the devil will fail. When Jesus returns, all man will see Him at one time, and God will call His own to be with Him.

    No matter what Satan does to those belonging to God, torture, beheading, terror - whatever - Satan does not win because even if we die at the hands of Satan, if we do not reject God, we will have eternal life with God. Satan loses in the end and God's kingdom in heaven will be our home.

    So, God does not promise an easy life free of pain, sorrow, fear - but He promises nothing can take you from Him as long as you do not turn from Him.

    You might note that most of the apostles ended their lives in a horrible manner - they too suffered as Christ did, yet - they did not lose because they have eternity with God.

    One other thing I have noticed. Aren't we fortunate to have a God that is served by showing love rather than a god who is honored by torture, terror, cruelty, abuse. Just think how different our lives would be if God demanded torture on others to follow Him. No, we have a God that created this world filled with touches of delicate beauty all around us in what He made, he teaches love thy neighbor as thyself - not kill thy neighbor. We are told to be peaceful, show kindness and love to honor Jesus. We are told to live as Jesus did.

    Thank you God that you are a God honored by love.

    Why do you feel the need to judge each Christian? You are not God.

    Christians are man - same as all other men. Except, that they believe in God and seek His way. They will fail as small children fall as they learn to walk. Yet, matured Christians are a beauty to behold.

    We are all on a walk with Jesus. The more we serve Him, the more our relationship grows and the easier it is to serve Him. As we grow closer to God, man’s strivings become less important and we see the world in altered ways.

    But, we are all on a life journey and we are faced with temptations and often fall. But, and this is the important thing, we look to God and Jesus for direction and our path will grow toward God and Jesus. How can that be a bad thing?

    stand on abortion, etc.

    I do also. I am always turning on the news and the only group to stand up against abortion, etc., is the Catholic church. I admire them for that.

    I thoroughly disagree with their beliefs but I admire that.

    If we do not speak up against murder and gross wrongs, we are not presenting the other way.

    Many in religions are taking a pacifist route - that we are part of God's kingdom and should not be concerned with man's kingdom. I find that hard. If we do not protect what we have and stand up - we will not have it. And, we were given the right of free speech - what is wrong with using it?

    Have you noticed that for 2000+ years there have been believers? How is that possible?

    How profound, God sent His own Son to be born of a woman and to live on earth for 30+ years. This is the merging of God and man. That Son was not sent as royalty - He was born in a manger, was a carpenter and only preached for 3 years. He also was treated cruelly and hung on the cross when God could have saved Him from that.

    He then is buried and in 3 days arose from the dead. If this is not true, then no part of Christianity is true and there is no afterlife.

    Why was that necessary? What are we to learn from that?

    That God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son to die for us so that we could be made pure enough to live with God forever. No other sacrifices needed.

    That something is required from man because man is not good enough to be in the presence of God.

    All man has to do is do what God told him to do - repent of your sins, confess your belief that Jesus is the Son of God, be baptised for the remission of those sins, and you are given the gift of the Holy Spirit to reside in you and you then start your walk through life with Jesus.

    Simple. Why would baptism cleanse you, why are you required to confess your faith? Because it shows you are doing what God said to do and that is what does the saving.
    Same as all through the Bible when God gave instructions. It was not the duty - it was the willingness to do what He said to do.

    So, how could one that does not believe ever see the comfort, the joy, the purpose of a Christian? The unbelief cuts one off from the Holy Spirit and a relationship with Jesus.

    The seed did not grow in those of unbelief. But, that seed may be watered in the future by others.

    What another man does or does not do should have no influence on your personal relationship with Jesus.

    Are you saying you would only believe if every man was perfect like Jesus?

    Never let one man or many men come between you and God. Each is judged on their own belief and hearts - not what other men did.

    Each man has different talents and is to use those talents to serve God.

    Look at your body - you have legs, you have arms, you have a brain. Each has a different function but each is extremely important.

    Same with the body of Christ.

    One of the biggest turnoffs is that air of self-righteousness.

    Yet, often what we are seeing is a fervent belief being offered to another to share their belief.

    We cannot expect man to be perfect in sharing the message - each has different talents - but the message is perfect.

    All Christians are to do is plant the seed. Whether that seed grows or not is not for us to determine. There are many others also contributing to that seed. Some seed grows, others die and wither. But the seed is planted.

    When we choose to follow Jesus and we are baptised to wash away our past sins, we are given the gift of the Holy Spirit residing in us. We are then a member of God’s kingdom while here on earth and look forward to living with God after death. Then life is spent growing in the faith. We are not perfect - we are man. We face temptations as all others and we often fail - but we have prayer to ask for forgiveness, and we form a relationship with Jesus.

    How can any that choose to make the other choice - no God, no Jesus, see the work of the Holy Spirit in lives, how can they possibly understand what a Christian gets from religion?

    They are not in a relationship with Jesus and God. They are merely living in a world without God which will be the same after they die. They have absolutely no control over what happens after death.

    It is funny. Notice that when people talk about their beliefs - they feel that their belief or non belief makes it so for all mankind. But, how can a mere man give salvation, create heaven for man after death, or determine that there is no heaven, no hell?

    Man is merely man. God is God, Jesus is Jesus. Just because one man decides there is no heaven - does not mean that there is no heaven. He just thinks there isn’t. But God is the one making heaven and hell, God is the one giving salvation not each man.

    So, I would think it would behoove man to realize he is only one man and has a choice here on earth. That choice determines the future, the afterlife of him only.

    But Scripture tells us - “No one comes to the Father except through Jesus”. And we choose to believe that or we don’t -it is our choice with a profound difference in our future lives and the hereafter.

    Fight fire with the real battle - not getting sidetracked by sideline diversionary tactics.

    Good grief man - they are destroying America, freedom and we sit and talk about how ugly dave’s wife is?

    Give me a break - we need fighters going after what they are doing as well as demanding respect for our side.

    We hit them where it hurt. It has been on the news for 3 days - great! It has cost a sponsor or two - great! It has diminished Dave because the whole country realizes what a trash mouth he is - great!

    And, we banded together to help Sarah fight this battle - absolutely wonderful! Wish we had done the same for Bush.

    You are right. In reality - they do not care one whit what we think about anything they do. They have an agenda as we see is being put into place right now.

    But, the fact that we demand respect - especially for our women and children - is a gentlemanly thing that only we still have. The left is gone.

    But, I agree - I want to see utter outrage over the antics and the agenda of the left. But - petty, trashy tit for tat wastes our time, makes us no better than the crudeness we speak up against and keeps us busy while they push through an agenda to take away America’s freedom.

    We have more important battles - saving this country. And I am more interested in revolution talk - not cheap insults spiraling down to the gutter.

    You are right. But - I don’t feel it does anything if we act the same as they acted when we complained about how they acted.

    If you complain because Dave wants in a room with muddy feet and to teach him how it feels for someone to come in with muddy feet, you stomp in the mud and walk into his house with muddy feet, what do you say then? “There - huh?”

    He looks and sees that you are just the same as him standing in a room with muddy feet - so you have nothing to talk about. How can you chastise him for his behavior - when your feet are muddy too?

    Better to have the whole room turn to see that only Dave was rude enough, impolite enough, and crude and publicly unacceptable enough to draw criticism.

    Right we stand up and fight and we quit ever worrying about our actions causing the “left” to say this, the “left” will do that.

    And we all stand together against the one doing the unacceptable as we have done here.

    You are right Bush did not get into fights to protect himself - probably because he felt the position of President was not to be involved in petty bickering but involved in honoring the office and doing the work of President.

    His staff, his party members and us - should have done that part of the battle for him. After all - he was busy with two wars trying to protect our families.

    But, we did not. Instead we joined the left in destroying the man - so he stood alone.

    The worst result would be if he made all of us act as he does. Then we would have no complaint with his gutter talk.

    Just because he wants to act like a pervert - does not mean we would ever act that way. We have far, far more class than a Letterman.

    Thank you again. A great way to teach - bring in the Bible when discussing life issues.

    So very powerful - thank you for adding this. I went to my Bible to verify.

    I often wonder how come so many do not see who Obama is and what he is doing. This passage explains it. It also explains the culture war going on between the liberals and the conservatives, the “clinging to their bibles” people.

    The fact that he made the comment about “clinging to their bibles” is very telling.
