    US Senator who can’t get along with anyone and despised in Congress.

    If I were a Senator I would be despised by a large majority of the other Senators myself. Cruz has the guts to tell it like it is, and that goes against everything that most senators and congress critters of both houses want from one of their fellow critters. Except for a handful of honest men and women Congress is owned lock, stock, and barrel by special interests.

    The DOJ has expressed “concern”.

    I'll see the DOJ's "concern" and raise it by 1000 dollars worth of outrage over the Supremes' unGodly decision to legalize immoral homosexual acts disguised as marital love and affection. Sodom and Gomarrah didn't get away with it unscathed and neither will America.

    God is not mocked, He will repay. So says Holy Writ, and you can take it to the bank.

    Not only does the Constitutions silence about marriage means that marriage is a unique, 10th Amendment-protected state power issue, but the constitutions silence about so-called gay ”marriage” means that it is not constitutionally protected right.

    Exactly right. That's pretty much what I intended to convey in my previous post, but you did it better using many fewer words and with more clarity of the intent of those words than I could muster up.

    Unless I have been mislead long ago by my former college teachers, the USSC's Constitutionally designated role in the Federal government's triad of powers is determining whether or not existing laws are Constitutional, but not that of enacting new laws by judicial fiat. If a majority of America's voters had wanted to legalize same sex “marriage” the electoral process, not judicial fiat, would have motivated Congress to give the majority of voters what they wanted IF what they wanted was Constitutionally permissible. If I'm not mistaken that's how the American form of government by and for the people is supposed to function

    However, in this instance, and in many others as well, what the majority of we the people don't want was forced down our throats by naked judicial tyranny and our voices in dissent were ignored. If my assessment of the court's brazen over-riding of the rights of all Americans in order to cater to the desires of a relatively small minority is out of line I am not adverse to correction by learned legal scholars. I'm not a Constitutional expert by any means, but I'm pretty sure that the founders didn't envision same-sex "marriage" as an unwritten provision of the same set of laws that were intended, in part at least, to protect the sacred institution of marriage from the immoral desires and acts of adulterers and/or homosexual deviants.

    Hell is literally the removal and absense of God.

    Not true, hell is just what the bible says it is, a lake of fire where impenitent men and women who refuse to repent and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior are sentenced to spend eternity. I will concede that the term "fire" may possibly be symbolic of punishment that is beyond our mortal minds' ability to comprehend. But even if that's the case it offers no comfort to the impenitent sinner.

    Truth is, we are all sinners, and the only hope for our salvation to be found in Holy Scripture is spelled out in John 3:16, "That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life." The only, repeat only, alternative is eternal damnation in an unimaginably horrible place the Word describes as a "lake of fire". If that lake isn't hell it's something even worse, and you definitely don't want to go there.

    Israel is back in it's promised land again after thousands of years of banishment among all nations of Earth. If anyone doubts that the Bible is God's infallible Word that fact alone should erase those doubts.

    No other nation has ever regained it's original homeland after being dispersed among all nations on earth for 2000 years. Israel today possesses only a fraction of the vast piece of land that God promised to Abraham's progeny, but they will eventually possess all that was promised.

    Anyone, whether individual, organization, or nation that attempts to destroy Israel's existence as a sovereign nation will come under God's wrath, and will ultimately be subject to total destruction. Israel now occupies only a small portion of the land that God promised to Abraham, but He will ultimately deliver it all to Abraham's progeny. The promise God made to Abraham 4000 years ago was and is unbreakable, and any nation that goes up against God's protection of Israel will itself be broken and destroyed.

    In God's own good time Israel will eventually occupy all the land that God promised to Father Abraham, not just the minuscule tidbit it now holds. That promise includes all the land between the River of Egypt and the Euphrates. God doesn't make empty promises or give idle warnings, at some point in the not too distant future His promise will be fulfilled and all the nations that threaten Israel will themselves be broken on His wheel. His wheel grinds very slow, but it grinds exceedingly fine.

    Trump's proposal of a ban on all muslims entering the US is almost, but not quite, enough to cause me to switch my support from Cruz to Trump.

    No foreigner has a right to enter our country for any reason or no reason at all. I'm not in favor of banning all foreigners from immigrating here, just the Islamics who have sworn to kill any and all people who won't convert to their Satanic religion, and that includes most muslims.

    There may be some muslims who don't believe in killing all non-muslims who won't accept their Satanic religion, but since we can't know which ones do or don't none should be allowed to come here. Just my opinion, but I think I'm right.

    I can only speak for myself and my family, but for all of us Cruz is the only one in the race who we feel sure would bring true Christianity into the White House again. It's been a very long 7 years since America's 1st Muslim president took office, and the almost total moral collapse of our formerly Christian-majority nation during those 7 tragic years reflects that sad reality.

    I am convinced that the obvious decline in America's moral fabric that has taken place over the span of the last 7 years can be almost totally attributed to the demon-inspired, hate-filled, Christ-hating false religion that Obama so obviously worships. The damage that Obama's Islamic regime has wrought on formerly Christian America may be irreversible, and almost certainly will be if another false "Christian" is elected. I'm not saying that Mr. Trump or any other GOP candidate is not a true bible believing Christian, but I'm as sure as anyone can be in this type situation that Senator Cruz's Christianity is the real deal, and my belief in the authenticity of his Christianity is at least partly due to the Christian witness of his father.

    I have seen and heard the senior Mr. Cruz give witness to his and his son's Christian beliefs, and I'm as sure as anyone can be at a distance that if elected Cruz would be a born again Christian president like RR was. Not a for-show-only false "Christian" as so many politicians are during campaign season, but a truly born again child of God like I believe Ronald Reagan was.

    Dante had it right when he put Mohammed in Hell.

    Dante had nothing to do with it, God had His holy angels throw Mohammed into the lake of fire where he has resided for the last 14 centuries, + or - a few decades.

    The sad fact is that a majority of the millions of people who he killed or had killed are there with him. Salvation only comes by grace through faith alone in Jesus Christ's atoning death on the cross, not by any righteous works of man.

    what you see is what you get!

    Not much doubt about that, but the tricky part is when you see it. Trump has been on almost every corner of the political map at one time or another, the $64 question is which corner of the map will he be on after he gets to the Oval Office. I don't want to find that out after he's there when there are others still in the running who I can say with a reasonable degree of confidence would or would not govern conservatively if elected.

    If elected Trump may govern conservatively as well. But as I said before, in the past he's been all over the political map from left to right and back to left and now to the right again. And that kind of fluctuation between right and left doesn't give me a lot of confidence that he'll take the right side after he's safely in office. Most Freepers seem perfectly willing to take a chance on which side he'll settle down on. But as I have said on FR several times today, as for me and my house I want to learn a lot more about what he's selling this time before I buy it.

    What a source of information. Or rather misinformation.

    I take it that you don't believe any of what Beck says? I don't know if any of it is true or not, but it shouldn't take a whole lot of effort to find the truth one way or the other. However, none of the rabidly pro-Trump "conservatives" on this forum seem inclined to investigate Beck's allegations, or those of anyone else for that matter. Although, before Trump decided that he would like to add the Oval Office to his list of acquisitions I can't remember reading anything praiseworthy about him on FR, and I've been here since most pro-Trump FReepers were in junior high school.

    I'm not saying that any or all of Beck's allegations are true, or false for that matter, I'm wide open to factual information one way or the other. But it does seem logical to me that even if the chances of Beck's accusations being true are small to none they should be checked out before we all collectively draft Trump into the Oval Office without bothering with a pesky election. Taking even a small chance that some of Beck's accusations are true doesn't appeal me as long as there are at least one or two well vetted and approved conservatives in the race against a man who has been all over the political map at one time of another for almost as long as I can remember seeing his name in print.

    All I can say is that if Trump is elected I hope that he'll stay on the conservative side of the political map for at least as long as he's in office. But if his checkered political past is prologue to his future, I seriously doubt that my hope will be realized.

    I fully realize that the majority of young Americans today don't want America to return to the Christian nation that it once was when a majority of my generation believed in Him and His inerrant written Word. But I also know from many long years of experience with Him and His Word that He does answer the sincere prayers of His people if and when we honor Him by accepting Him as Lord of Heaven and earth and then obeying His laws.

    With that hope in mind Annie, keep on earnestly praying for an authentic Christian President such as Cruz claims to be. I and my family will join you in that endeavor, and God may yet restore America to it's rightful 1st place in the nations of the world.

    "when they have every right to be smash mouth".

    Absolutely! The muslims are only in Israel because their Arab brothers want the Israelis to have to either kill them or allow them to kill Israelis, preferably the first option because then Israel gets all the blame.

    And of course the world is always looking for an excuse to blame Israel for whatever violence takes place within it's borders. Therefore the muslims are advantaged either way. If the Israelis justifiably fight back they're blamed for killing "innocent" Arabs, and if they don't fight back their own people are killed and they get blamed anyway.

    Fortunately for the Israelis, Bibi has the guts to do what's best for his country, a concept that hasn't been seen in the White House since Reagan left the back door open and let in the gutless bunch we've been saddled with ever since.

If it were in my power to stop these inhuman monsters and Obama's buddies I would call down the hottest fire and brimstone in hell on their heads and all their other body parts.

    I realize that my words aren't what a born again Christian should be saying at this time and in this place. I can only plead my case before the Lord Jesus Christ who saved me from eternal hell by taking my well deserved place on a Roman cross, and then dying to pay the death penalty for my own filthy sins against His perfect, holy laws. But even so, I am so outraged and overcome with unholy anger at the demonic beings disguised as humanoid monsters who call themselves ISIS that I can't keep from praying that God will inflict 1000 times more inhuman torment on them than they are guilty of inflicting on innocent children whose only crime was being born to committed Christian parents.

    May God forgive me, I simply can't refrain from trying to call down the hottest wrath of God on the heads of those inhuman monsters who call themselves ISIS, and also on the head of a somewhat less evil being who has deceived millions of American voters into believing that he is a Christian, when in fact his actions as president, or I should say his lack of same, to remedy this incredibly cruel situation with force of American arms totally belies that ridiculous claim. As it now stands all that any of us can do can do is pray that God will welcome those sainted children into the joys of his Heaven, and that He will somehow ease the pain of those Christian parents who are the victims of our own timidity that keeps us as a nation from condemning the leadership of this formerly Christian nation to the most politically incorrect punishment short of hanging by the neck until dead.

    What they want it to be is a showcase of "gun violence" that can only be eradicated by confiscation of all privately owned firearms. In light of the recent USSC rulings that along with several other rulings have radically reversed our laws on issues such as marriage and homosexual depravity, I expect 2nd Amendment rights to be effectively revoked by a USSC ruling any day now.

    I'm 78 years old, and at best I don't have very many years left on this ball of dirt. Therefore I won't lose very much of my allotted time down here if I die defending the rights I am guaranteed by the Constitution, so I'm not afraid to defy whatever convoluted 2nd Amendment ruling the court may hand down.

    I'm sure that the same people who elected Obama will cheer their widdy-biddy hearts out when those anti-2nd Amendment rulings are incorporated into a federal law effectively banning firearms for any and all civilians. When the 2nd is neutered that will signal the end of the great American experiment in guaranteeing basic human rights for all people, not just for the favored upper classes as was the case in all European nations of that day and time.

    I woke up this morning awed by the courage of men and women who stood and affirmed their faith in the face of death itself. Compared to the love and approval of the Creator of the universe, the respect or acknowledgment of the New York Times or the president is meaningless indeed.

    I am also filled with both admiration and sorrow by the courage of those young Christian men and women who stood up when they knew that doing so meant their life was about to end. I have read that the early Christians who were tortured, burned alive, fed to lions in the Coliseum, etc, could have saved themselves by simply denying their faith in Jesus Christ.

    That was long ago and we can, and do, admire them from our 2000 year perspective. But would I, or any of the other Christians who I know and worship with every Sunday, also have the courage and faith in Christ that those young Christians in Oregon had when their faith was put to the ultimate test?

    I can only pray that it never comes to that for my family and/or myself. But if it should I can't help but wonder about the strength of my own faith in my Lord and Savior who died in my place on that Roman cross. Would I stand up for Him, or would I deny Him who saved me from eternal damnation? I pray to God that I would stand up, and if I were to do so it would be only by His infinite strength and none of my own.

    PBA occurs secondary to a neurologic disease or brain injury.

    In Bohner's case it's a mental disorder commonly known as traitorism, and it's most common symptom is collaboration with the enemy.

    In fact I don't even consider him to be a brother in Christ.

    I won't go quite that far, only God knows his heart. OTOH I haven't read or heard anything about him that indicates that he is. A man becomes a Christian the moment he accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

    John ch 3, v3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

    Unless a Pope or any other human being accepts Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord he or she isn't a Christian and will not be caught up to be with Jesus Christ forever at his or her death. If there is any other way to be saved from eternity in hell God forgot to tell us about it in His Word.

    "I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation," retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson said in an interview aired Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press." ''I absolutely would not agree with that."

    Finally a presidential candidate has said what all the others know but are afraid to come out and say. I'm pretty sure that Trump believes the same as Carson on that issue, but I think he may be trying to soft pedal his earlier remarks about a border fence, for now at least. If Carson doesn't cave to political correctness and stands firm on that statement I would probably support him over any of the other hopefuls except my main man Cruz. I like Trump's positions on most issues, but I think it's high time we had a real, honest to God Christian in the White House for a change.

    I'm not saying that Trump's not a Christian, I'm not his judge, only God is. But OTOH it's hard for me to picture him worshiping a higher power than himself.

    More like “Pitching Their Tent Next To Sodom”.

    90% of the mainline denominations in America today aren't pitching their tents next to Sodom, their "tents" are actually big brick buildings on Main Street where liberal pastors preach a watered down "feel good" social gospel that doesn't even resemble biblical Christianity.

    I listened and laughed with tears in my eyes.

    Those tears were not just tears of laughter, they quickly became tears of sorrow when I remembered those days and then came back to the 21st century and realized that my grandchildren know nothing about the good times for the American people that are gone but not forgotten by many of us who lived in that day and time. Not everything was great about that era by a long shot, but at least we could be proud of our President and that hasn't been the case since then, especially not for the last 7 disastrous years.

    I guess I didn’t post this thread properly. It’s been lots of years since I have done anything on FR other than reply to threads that someone else started, so I may have goofed it up. Sorry bout dat, I just received this email this AM and thought it might bring back memories of the good old days when we had a President who we could actually be proud of. If the email address doesn’t work I may try again if anyone is interested.

    I’ll expose John MacArthur for being the anti-Catholic bigot that he is.

    He's not anti-Catholic, he's anti- false doctrine propagated by any and all denominations. I don't believe for a NY minute that he hates Catholics, it's not hateful to expose false doctrine that sends countless numbers of people around the globe to hell every year that goes by.

    the Gospel, according to John MacArthur.

    The Gospel according to MacArthur is also the Gospel according to the word of God.IMO he is the most biblically correct bible expositor since the passing of the late lamented English author, scholar, and professor at both Oxford and Cambridge C.S. Lewis.

    Nothing in divinely inspired Holy Writ establishes a Papist religion such as the Roman Church, nor does it give any mere man authority to grant salvation to penitent sinners. Salvation by faith alone in Christ alone was the watchword of the European reformers Luther, Calvin, Knox, et al, and is MacArthur's as well. Love him or hate him, he preaches the gospel of Christ's death, burial, and resurrection for the salvation of all who believe in Him and that's what counts as far as I'm concerned.

    I forgot to say that my friend returned both of the
    $400 checks to NRA after his gun was found and returned to him by the police. Which he didn’t have to do since the NRA didn’t know the gun was recovered. IMO he’s more honest than the NRA.

    I quit the NRA years ago when they supported a number of Democrats

    That makes 2 members the NRA lost, I got out several years ago when my shooting buddy had his SS Colt Anaconda .44 mag stolen. Those guns haven't been made for several decades and they're now sought-after collector's items.

    When he filed a claim with NRA insurance they sent him a check for $400. He refused to accept the check, and filed a complaint with NRA headquarters in VA. To make a long story a bit shorter, I'll just say that he argued with several people at NRA for 4 or 5 months and finally settled for around $800 for his loss, which isn't even half of it's actual value as a collector item in like new condition.

    A few months later the Bradenton FL police arrested a thief who had the Colt stashed in his trailer along with several other stolen items. They checked the BATF sales records of the gun dealer and returned the gun to him, and then he returned it to my friend. Needless to say, he hasn't renewed his NRA membership since then and neither have I. When NRA phone solicitors call me trying to get me to rejoin I tell the caller no way Jose.

    IMO NRA has turned into a money making racket during LaPierre's presidency, and the most effective major gun owner's org that actually fights for 2nd A rights instead of just begging for money is Gun Owners of America with Larry Pratt as president.
