Points To Ponder Before Voting…

Obama Romney SC Points to Ponder Before Voting...

Before you cast your vote, think about a few things.

Libya:

Chris Stevens was in Benghazi in order to recruit Islamic Jihadists to overthrow the current leadership in Syria.  The US was supplying weapons to these Jihadists.  If Obama wasn’t aware of the attack, it was because he either ignored the call, or his trusted aides refused to notify him.  Neither option is acceptable.  I think he knew, and watched, as Americans were murdered.  We know he lied about the cause and the circumstances of the attack. We know the military was refused permission to help. I think that this was a planned incident, approved by Obama, that went horribly wrong, and that the lies were a desperate attempt to shift blame.

There were attacks at many other Consulates and Embassies, but these faded as they resulted in no real damage.  Had Benghazi had the same result, Obama could have used these incidents to show that with him in charge, the US had strength.  He would then have been able to reveal an agreement with Iran over nuclear weapons and pretty much guarantee his re-election.  The economy would have still been in ruins, socialism would reign, and the United States would still be “Fundamentally Changed”, but voters would have only seen a President coming down hard on rioters.

The Economy:

Are you better off now than you were four years ago?  Have you received raises?  Do you have a job that pays what you were making then?  Do you have a job?  Have you retired or taken disability because you were unable to get a job?

When ObamaCare was passed, all the employees at the company I work for received a letter stating that it was unknown what insurance would be offered for the next year; now we know, and it’s not good!  Profit is down for companies, and wages have been frozen for years.  More part-time employees are being hired, and full-time positions are being cut.  Many employers are giving their employees the option of accepting part-time work or taking unemployment.  If you are reduced to part-time, you can file for partial unemployment but, when it comes time to renew unemployment, it is readjusted to what you earned in the past year (and you no longer qualify as it is based on the partial employment.)

Companies that are hiring are paying less and filling positions with part-time employees.  Many that are hiring now are doing so only for the Christmas Season; what will happen in January?  The recently unemployed are going on assistance and Food Stamps, not because they want to but because they have to.

Gas prices are going down a little; it now costs me $57 to fill my tank rather than $61 (whoopee!)  Four years ago, even eight years ago, it cost around $25 to $27.  I still have the same job as then but make 1/3 less than I did four years ago.  When gas prices were rising in 2007 and 2008, Bush was blamed; now we are told that the President has no control and that Obama is totally innocent.  What changed in three years to take the blame from the Administration?

Religion:

We are a Judeo/Christian Nation, one that welcomes others to legally practice their own religion or lack thereof.  You can separate the different religions of our Founding Fathers all you want, but the First Settlers came here in order to practice Christianity without being told what religion they must follow by the Governments in their homelands.  The Founding Fathers were Christian, although they were members of different Church affiliations.   Jewish immigrants came in droves to avoid being persecuted and murdered by an unfriendly government.

We welcome those who practice other religions as long as they do so without breaking the laws of the United States.  Mormons are no longer allowed to legally have multiple wives; Satanists are not allowed to perform human sacrifice.  Hindi, Taoists, Buddhists, and all others are welcome.  Muslims are also welcome as long as they follow the Constitution of the United States of America and the laws in effect where they are.

Our laws and ethics are based on Judeo/Christian values, the values and laws taught to us in the Bible; if you remove the God-specific Commandments and pay attention to Commandments 5 through 10, you will find the basis for our laws:

“And God spoke all these words, saying: “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

  1. You shall have no other gods before me.
  2. You shall not make for yourself any carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
  3. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
  4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
  5. Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
  6. You shall not murder.
  7. You shall not commit adultery.
  8. You shall not steal.
  9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
  10. You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

Transparency:

The only transparency we have gotten from the Obama Administration has been by accident.

He hasn’t been transparent about his life or background, the fact that he was mentored and raised by anti-American extremists, and the fact that he and his wife were members of anti-American groups in college and went to a Church that did not preach the Love of God but the Hatred of America.

I don’t want to get into the “birther” argument, but his parents (plural) were not both American Citizens.  The “s” in parents stated in the Constitution was put there for a reason and not by accident.

He claims credit for the death of Bin Laden, but many sources have stated that at least twice prior, he declined permission for the mission and that the mission that did end Bin Laden’s life was approved without his knowledge (and he was informed only after the events were in motion.)

This is the administration that should also claim credit for the death of four Americans in Libya.

This is also the man who told Medvedev to wait until I get re-elected and “I’ll have more flexibility”.  This is the man who insists that the media not mention the race of those committing crimes if they are black.

But…There is transparency (leaks) about whom the operatives were that helped us get Bin Laden.  Those operatives are paying the price for this transparency.  It’s like a movie where the bad guy is eliminating all the ‘loose ends’.

    WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN
    CHOOSING A LEADER
    As election season approaches, you may be wondering what course to take
    when voting. What is your responsibility as a believer, and what should you
    look for when choosing a leader? Although I would not suggest which party
    anyone should support, I would strongly recommend you take note of what’s
    happening in this country and pay close attention to the character of each of
    the nominees running for public office.
    Integrity is one of the most important qualities an elected official can have.
    Therefore, always look for verifiable and objective evidence that the candidate
    you choose exhibits the moral fiber you expect of him or her.
    Here are some questions we can ask of our lawmakers:
    1. Does the person consistently tell the truth and act in an honest and
    principled manner?
    2. Is the individual reliable, faithful, and trustworthy? Does he do as he says
    he will—including honoring his marital and family commitments?
    3. Does the person give generously to others, especially to those in need?
    4. Does the individual exhibit sound, ethical reasoning—including protecting
    the sanctity of life and the traditional definition of marriage?
    5. Is the individual conscientious about paying her bills and taking care of
    her financial obligations?
    6. Does the person speak to others with kindness, consideration, and
    gentleness?
    7. Is the individual humble, and does he treat others with dignity and
    appreciation?
    8. Does the person consistently extend common courtesies to others?
    9. Is the individual careful—reviewing all of her options and the ramifications
    of her decisions with due diligence?

    “ Trust in the lord with
    all your heart and do
    not lean on your own
    understanding. In all
    your ways acknowledge
    Him, and He will make
    your paths straight.”
    Proverbs 3:5-6
    WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN

    CHOOSING A LEADER
    10. Does the person exhibit self-control in his habits?
    11. Is the individual prepared to be an example and live by the same
    standards he or she sets for others?
    12. Does the person know how to have fun and make others laugh without
    resorting to coarse jokes, crude language, or inappropriate stories?
    13. Does the individual exhibit patience, or is he easily irritated?
    14. Is the person a peacemaker who seeks to resolve arguments and fi nd
    quality solutions?
    15. Does the individual encourage and inspire others to become better people?
    16. Does the person express any remorse for mistakes and sincerely attempt
    to make amends and do what is right?
    17. Is the individual modest—focusing not on her own achievements, but on
    the accomplishments of others?
    18. Does the person work well with others, exhibit good judgment, and make
    decisions that demonstrate wisdom and fairness?
    19. Is the individual prepared to stand up for the truth, no matter what
    it costs?
    I’m sure you can add other questions. However, please know it is important
    that we observe our candidates’ behaviors instead of just listening to their
    words. Although you can learn a great deal by examining an individual’s
    website or campaign literature, actions are far more reliable indicators of a
    person’s character than words can ever be.
    This goes for us as well. You and I must always be people who exhibit
    godliness and character in everything we say and do. What we articulate
    does no good if our behaviors contradict our words.

    GOD the judge
    Ps. 75: 4,5,7

    I tell the wicked not to be arrogant: I tell them to stop their boasting. It is God who is the judge, condemning some and acquitting others.

    Prov. 29: 2
    Show me a righteous ruler and will show you a happy people. Show me a wicked ruler and I will show you a miserable people.

    Dan. 2: 21
    He controls the times and the seasons: He makes and unmakes kings; it is He who gives wisdom and understanding.

    The Two Beasts
    Rev. 13:6
    It began to curse God, His name, the place where He lives, and all those that live in heaven.
