Here’s The Good News…

Republican Elephant 2 SC Heres The Good News...

It appeared last night that even Obama was shocked that he won a second term. Today, much of the mainstream media has little to say. It seems that they were more prepared for a Romney win. So out the window went their moaning, whining, blame-game prepared scripts. And in came the ad-lib, try-to-look humble, do-not giggle analysis.

In the meantime, the Republican Party is looking around for someone to blame. But like when you stub your toe at home alone and look around for someone to blame and find that there is no one to blame but yourself, the Republican Party can only blame itself.

The Republican Party was not looking where it was going. Its eyes were so set on getting into the White House that it did not care how it got there. And as a result, it walked right into something obstructing its path, a thing called “liberalism.”

The Republican Party chose a liberal candidate and tried to pass him off as a Ronald Reagan to conservatives and a Bill Clinton to Liberals. But the fact is, a rhino cannot be passed off as an elephant, and neither can it be passed off as a donkey, no matter how hard one tries. As a result, not enough conservatives bought into the sham of Romney being a true conservative, while not enough liberals saw him to be liberal enough.

But here is the good news

The good news is that it is quite possible that the Republican Party will have learned its lesson come 2016. Perhaps the Republican Party will leave the running of a liberal candidate to the Democrat Party and instead give the people of America a real choice in 2016 by running a real conservative in that election. Perhaps it will run a conservative candidate who will defend the U.S. Constitution and has a history of such, one who has the truth in him and dares to speak it, one who could win people over because he has something truly better to offer to this great nation.

Let us hope that the Republican Party has learned from this. Let us hope.

Pastor David Jeremiah Should Know Better

An Email Response To A Bad Message

Though I can certainly understand a Christian pastor slipping and casting a vote out of fear, I cannot understand a Christian pastor persecuting Christians that are not slipping along with him.

Pastor David Jeremiah,

For the first time in this 2012 election season, I can honestly say that I hope Mitt Romney wins. This has come as a result of having viewed the video of your church message on this upcoming election:

You see, Pastor Jeremiah, I now see the need for Christians such as yourself to see that fear is not of the Lord and neither is the persecution of God’s children. Though I can certainly understand a Christian pastor slipping and casting a vote out of fear, I cannot understand a Christian pastor persecuting Christians who are not slipping along with him.

Like so many fellow believers in Jesus Christ, you have chosen to ignore Mitt Romney’s Mormonism and encourage voting for him, while making the claim that America needs to turn back to God. Which one, Pastor? Our God? Or the Mormon god?

You say that a president should have reverence for God, while encouraging people to vote for Mitt Romney. Again, Pastor, which one? Our God? Or the Mormon god? Do you really believe that our God is suddenly okay with sharing His glory? Scripture says that God will share His glory with no other.

In the same message that you say a president must reverence God, you admit that Romney is not a Christian; and yet you are encouraging people to vote for him. That is talking out of both sides of your mouth, Pastor Jeremiah.

You say that a president should respect the life of the unborn while encouraging people to vote for Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney has gone on record several times throughout his political career as being pro-choice for abortion (and only when he decided to run for the presidency suddenly became pro-life.) Do you not know this?

You say that a president should have family values while encouraging people to vote for Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney declared homosexual marriage legal in the first state to “legalize” homosexual marriage as the governor of Massachusetts. He did not have the power to do so, and he certainly did not fight it.

God says my people perish for lack of knowledge. Yes, they sure do. And pretending that which is isn’t does not make that which is anything different than it is. And being the mouth piece for Mitt Romney with Christians, to tickle their ears for him, is simply wrong.

You implied that “a thinking Christian” would vote for Romney. You said that those of us who are not voting for either candidate are “morally lazy,” “evil,” “sinful,” and that we are “protecting our holiness.” Considering your generalization of judgement on the whole of us, please consider the following:

By not voting for either of the wicked men running for the presidency, I am waiting on the Lord and trusting in Him.

Psalms 37:

1 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.

2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

4 Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

 

I will not in one breath pray that God will heal our land and in the next breath cast a vote for a known wicked man to run that land.

There is nothing morally lazy, evil, or sinful about trusting in the Lord and not trusting in a Godless man whose only consistency is his inconsistency. And since God is my holiness, I have no need to protect it, as He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Amen!

It is written that in the end, evil will be called good and good will be called evil. And it is also written, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!” …Isaiah 5:20-21

You finished your message by claiming that before God, you have done what you believe “He’s asked” you to do. No, Pastor Jeremiah. Your fear-driven message was not of the Lord, as fear is not of the Lord.

I’m Simply Not Scared About The Election

Obama Romney SC Im Simply Not Scared About the Election

He knows the number of the stars and calls them all by name.
By Debra J.M. Smith

I have a confession to make. Last presidential election I was a freak case. I totally freaked out and thought it was the end of the world when Obama got into office. Letting all the fear tactics of the evil one get to me, I lost focus and took my eyes off of Jesus, in the moment.

And that is exactly what the devil wants us to do, loose focus and not see so clearly, to be blinded by our own fear and rendered useless for the time. Well, this time is different. This presidential election, I will not be moved. I will hold onto the promises of God and know that He is more than able to deliver His people from what ever comes our way.

There are two ways that Satan can render a believer pretty much useless, and that is pride and fear. Both of which require a strong focus on the Lord, in order to not fall into temptation of.

The bible tells us that fear is not of the Lord. Therefore allowing ourselves to cast a vote for even the lesser of two evils out of fear, we can most assuredly know is not of the Lord. I am not going to tell you who to vote for or who not to vote for. I am not even going to tell you not to vote. I am just suggestion to not allow fear to be the reason you do whatever it is you do with your vote.

No matter what happens as a result of the 2012 presidential election, God will still be in control. Nothing will come as a shock to Him.

Scripture says that God knows the number of all the stars, billions of trillions of stars; He has even named them all. Scripture also says that he has numbered every hair on our heads. The way I figure it is if God takes the time to name billions of trillions of stars and number all of the hairs on all of our heads, He surely takes the time to deliver those of us who are His out of any and all evil that comes our way. Whether it be in life or in death.

Psalms 147:4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.

Call Me Crazy, But I Thought Romney Won This Final One

Mitt Romney with supporters 2 SC Call Me Crazy, But I Thought Romney Won This Final One

The Third 2012 Presidential Debate

I am not a Romney fan (I am not an Obama fan either), but I thought Romney actually won this third presidential debate.

Yes, he agreed with a lot of what Obama has done with foreign affairs. However, in areas where he should not have agreed, he didn’t.

He spoke up for Israel and nailed Obama for having not visited there on his apologetic Middle East presidential trip early on. He also spoke up about Russia and mentioned Obama’s “oops” moment with the microphone on. He made clear that Iran is the biggest foreign threat. And he could not have been more thorough about China’s inability to play fair and what he would do there.

He did these things while certainly holding his own in the exchange and not letting Obama get the better of him. And actually, I felt that Obama again often looked like one of those bouncy doggy heads in the back window of a 1960s Chevy. So why is the mainstream media saying Obama won? I guess we all know why.

An Independent Take On Last Night’s Debate

Romney Obama SC An Independent Take On Last Nights Debate

An Impartial View By An Independent

With the timer-keeping track on the bottom-right part of the screen, I could not help but notice where Obama’s lead was throughout the majority of the debate. Though Romney was the first to answer a question, Obama managed to get and keep the lead in the time spent talking. The debate ended with Obama having spoken for 44.04 minutes, as opposed to Romney’s 40.50. That’s a lot of extra time when one realizes just how much can be said by a well-rehearsed candidate in three minutes.

And Obama was just that, well-rehearsed. While Romney began the debate smoothly, directly responding to the person asking the first question, Obama pulled out a typical campaign speech from his bag of things-to-say if this-or-that is asked. It was clear who was relaxed and who wasn’t.

The debate moderator, Candy Crowley, appeared and sounded a bit frazzled throughout most of the debate, several times seeming to have lost control of things. However, I would not be able to say if she favored one candidate over the other, if you paid me for my thoughts on it.

Each candidate had his lowest moment. Romney’s lowest point of the night was when he spoke down to Obama in a disciplinary manner, saying, “You’ll get your chance in a moment. I’m still speaking.” Obama had his lowest point when he played the wounded thin-skinned, you-hurt-my-feelings card, saying, “And the suggestion that anybody in my team, whether the Secretary of State, our U.N. Ambassador, anybody on my team would play politics or mislead when we’ve lost four of our own, Governor, is offensive.” While disrespecting an opponent during a debate only served to make Romney look rude and mean, aiming for sympathy votes made Obama look pathetic.

The highs were there, as well. Romney read off his economic plan to create such a business-friendly environment in this country that it would make American companies grow beyond our wildest dreams and even attract companies from other countries to come here and set up shop. Obama beamed with pride when he read off what he had done in these four years, claiming to have reined in Wall Street, created millions of jobs, and saved an auto industry. Basically, Romney wants us to believe that he will turn this country into an American business utopia, while Obama wants us to believe he has already achieved that goal.

The question both men answered very much alike was on immigration. They gave the usual politician’s answer: secure the boarders, stop the illegals from coming because many other people are waiting to come here legally, and do something to help the children stay.

Both men failed miserably with the ”equal pay for women” question. Obama still believes that equal pay can be legislated. And Romney will most likely never live down having pointed out the obvious, that often women need more flexible hours.

Then there were the zingers. Each candidate only had to bring up the other candidate’s past record to get the zingers in, which they both did quite well. Perhaps the zingers were the only times during the debate that we heard what they both have in common, as well as any truth. With that said, I have to call this debate a draw and wish everyone happy voting, whether you cast a vote for Obama, for Romney, a write-in, or not at all.
