Every Vote Counts...Except Republicans

I got his little blurb from the blog site of Vox Popoli. He's pretty clever

If you call yourself a conservative and you vote for McCain, you should be aware of two things. First, you are not a conservative. Second, you are an idiot. As I wrote on Monday, only a vote for McCain is a wasted vote because it's the only vote that will not provide you what you think you're going to get. The left-liberal votes for Obama and knows he'll get socialism and multi-culturalism in one way or another. (The pacifist, on the other hand, will be disappointed.) The third-party voter votes third party and knows he'll get nothing. The non-voter doesn't vote and doesn't get what he isn't expecting.

The Republican voter, on the other hand, usually votes for conservatism, constitutional judges and small government, but only gets liberalism, activist judges and big government. That's why it is the Republican vote that is truly the wasted one.

Now, I do NOT agree that you are an idiot if you vote for McCain (although many idiots will vote for him.) Without a doubt, decent and intelligent people will vote for him, because they are against Obama's policies. Having said that, I think a better choice is obviously Baldwin.

Obama, McCain, Biden agree

They all agreed in voting to give tax payer money for the bailout and more pork.

This article has the grizzly details that show not only $1.8 TRILLION in bailing out unethical/ineffective financial institutions but 442 pages of straight pork.

Ron Paul has a reasonable plan, and for whom does Dr. Paul plan to vote? Chuck Baldwin.

Stealing Candy From a Baby

How do you feel about a bad guy taking something from a small child without asking? A just person is outraged at the prospect.

This year alone our government has taken $1.6 trillion from Jessica, Mark, Kristofer, AJ, JL, Junior, and 50 million other children.

How do Obama and McCain feel about the government stealing from your kids?
"Both Obama and McCain have since said the government's plan to lend AIG $85 billion was regrettable but necessary."

The Republicans and Democrats have become fat-cats expecting the American people to fund bad fiscal policies and windfall retirement packages for CEOs of fiduciary failures.

What does the Constitution Party think about stealing from you and your children?

This man speaks for me

Imagine with me that you're on the committee to replace your church's senior pastor. There are about a half dozen applicants, but two men have really impressed the committee. They each have plans on how to lead the church forward.

One of the principle applicants is a smooth public speaker, and would be an impressive pastor. It would open up opportunities for increased revenue because his speaking abilities could be broadcast on TV and the Internet. Many people would pay to see his fantastic messages, and because he is young, handsome, and sharp, many people will be ready to give money to support his policies. The only problem with his applicant status is that he has many policies and positions which are against conservative biblical doctrine. He intends to take the church in a direction that is less evangelical and extremely more progressive on social issues.

The other main applicant is not so brilliant a public speaker, but his long and distinguished service at other congregations is well known. He is known to have only one serious moral failure when he divorced his disabled wife to marry a rich young woman. As opposed to the other main applicant, most of his policies agree with biblical doctrine. One of the principle reservations you have with this applicant is that as you look at his former congregations, he was financially irresponsible and left his congregations in deep debt when he moved on. The other reservation you have with his candidacy is that from talking to the deacons in his former churches, he acted as though he were not bound by the rules of the individual churches.

Most everyone on the committee plans to vote for one of these two applicants. They are notable and well-known in the congregation.

But there is also a third applicant that not many have heard of. He has lived a life that confirms the policies and tactics by which he plans to lead. He has never led a church congregation before, but he has been financially responsible is his past business ventures. In your personal interview with him, you found that he agreed with you on how to lead the church in a Biblical manner, how to conduct one's life as a disciple outside church walls, and how to be a good financial steward.

Now it is time for you to vote. Almost everyone in the room has voted for one of the original notable applicants. Your vote could swing the results one way or the other. But you have serious disagreements with the main applicants.

By your vote, you will be saying, "I give this applicant the right to speak for me in matters of church policy and the direction of the church."

Binary Politics

Many things in life are binary. You know, ON or OFF. Pregnant or not. Alive or dead. How many of you can resonate with me when I say, it's either saved, or the stupid computer had an "Unknown Windows Error" right when had finished typing for 3 hours…and it's gone forever?

Many things in life are not binary. It's not exactly north, but it's not really west either. She's not black or white, she's got a rich heritage from several ethnicities. Was that the best or worst meal you've ever had? Somewhere in between. Was that show funny or dreadful? It was humorous, but not exactly lame. Is that person smart or a moron? Well, he's smarter than Al Gore, but not as smart as Einstein.

Should our presidential candidate be spoon-fed to us as a binary option? It's very frustrating, but it seems to be getting worse each day. "You have to vote for Evil1 or Evil2". And, "If you don't want Evil2 to be president, then you better vote for Evil1." "Just imagine what Evil2 will do to our country if you refuse to vote for Evil1."

The conservative news commentators are saying, "We better band together to vote Evil1 into office because Evil2 can wreck this country." Even James Dobson is now saying, "I might vote for Evil1, because I don't want Evil2 to be president." Most of my friends say, "Well, we don't really like Evil1, but he's better than Evil2."

It's really a shame that the "conservative" media have not mentioned the third option, Chuck Baldwin. This past weekend, my sister asked, "Who's He?" She listens to Christian radio, faithfully attends a Bible believing church, and subscribes to the conservative news magazine, World, but she has never heard of Chuck Baldwin. It's a shame that the media sources in which many Christians trust have completely ignored this presidential candidate. Check out his website; he stands for everything you'd expect a Christian to stand for…everything YOU stand for. So why are Christians voting for Evil1? Please post your comments, so we can discuss.

I'll even start the first obvious question, "Why would someone throw away their vote by voting for someone who is not one of our binary choices?"

Consequences? Not when I'm president!

This past week the hopeful presidential candidate, B. Hussein Obama (drunk on the forthcoming power due him by occupying the White House) with as much sincerity as he could muster said,

"Look, I got two daughters—9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby."

It is with horror that I read this quote and realized that he was serious, and that the main stream media did not expel him from the stage. Has our society degenerated so completely that a person running for the highest office in the land can call a “mother carrying the miracle of life” punishment and get away with it?!?!?!? I love my country, and I hope we make a major turn, but with situations like this, my hope is waning. He was insinuating that he would prefer to kill the victim for the mistake of his daughter.

Children are not being taught values and morals if their natural consequences are removed. They are simply being taught that they are above the law.

Here are some potential extracts from letters to the new president, based on his new platform:

“I took on too much debt in an attempt to earn windfall profits. But the value of the dollar has sunk, and I can no longer cover my outgoing cash flow. Shouldn’t I still be allowed to stay in business instead of being punished with bankruptcy and solvency?” – CEO of large bank

“My parents brought me up right, but I’ve recently borrowed too much money for my house, and I can no longer afford the payments because my dollar doesn’t buy as much as it once did. To keep 3 new cars in the garage and child support payments to 2 ex-wives, I am on the verge of losing my home. As an American, should I be punished to live like a commoner in spite of my rash choices?” –Harry Typical

“I’ve lost everything. My career, my dignity, my family. President Obama, can you please use your executive authority to restore my life as an American citizen. I should not be punished by losing everything simply for my decade-long involvement with a prostitution ring” – Former NY governor

“Dear B. Hussein Obama, Can you please do something about my waistline? I’ve eaten too many cookies and Lays Potato Chips, and I haven’t found enough time to exercise. Can you keep me from being punished with a large gut?” – Darla Typical-No-Longer

“My dad also taught me good values and morals. One time, only one time I was focused more on my cell phone conversation than my driving, and I ran a red light. Should I still be punished with maxofacial reconstruction and six months in rehab learning to walk again?” – Johnny Teen



UPDATE: This week, the terrorist group, Hamas, has endorsed B. Hussein Obama for president. This follows a stellar week for the presidential hopeful after he received an endorsement from another terrorist group...the Pittsburgh Steelers.

DJ

We are praying for you and the baby, DJ.

Update: Everyone is now home. Here are some pictures. We are still praying for DJ to feel better.

Slouching Towards Fascism

Has anyone seen the Aaron Russo film America: Freedom to Fascism? I just finished watching it and it is almost unbelievable.

The Federal Reserve is a collection of private banks that loans the government money and is in charge of printing our money?!?!?!?

I've got a copy of the film on DVD, and anyone is welcome to borrow it. But if you have a high speed internet connection and 2 hours of sitting in front of your computer, it's posted on Google video by clicking here.

It's actually very informative, and it reminds me that nothing in politics can save us. As scary as the New World Order/IRS/Crooked Government sometimes appear, our home is not here. We have to keep a heavenly perspective and do our best to honor Christ's sacrifice by obeying Him.

1Corinthians 15:19 If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men. 20 But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. 22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.

He doesn't have practical answers...

I was talking to a friend the other day on a short road trip, and the conversation turned to politics. Trying to stay within the bounds of propriety (i.e. not shouting Ron Paul is the only valid candidate), I merely asked what he thought of Ron Paul's fiscal ideas.

His response was troubling to me. "He doesn't have practical answers. He doesn't seem to know what he's talking about", was a close paraphrase of his reply.

I have to heartily disagree with my friend in this issue. As posted before, politics will not save us. But since we are currently in the paradigm of being able to choose our leadership, I hope that all Christians will thoughtfully and prayerfully choose their government. I'll try to post a few links and ideas to help in the "thoughtfully" part of this equation.

Could any of the presidential candidates from this year answer any of these questions (shown below in video form on YouTube) from Ron Paul without purposefully re-directing the question to "Dr. Paul, does your candidacy even have ANY legitimacy?" or "Did you know that supports your candidacy?" or "Why do you hate the 9/11 victims so much?"

The candidates for president in this election have all been thrown softball questions. None of them have shown substance with integrity that is beyond reproach...except for Dr. Paul.

Obviously, he will not win the election this year, but the ideas to which he holds true have been planted, and when future candidates seek your vote, look for these constitutional ideals.



UPDATE: Ron Paul knows economics. He understands the relatedness of economics to foreign and domestic policies. However, he is not a celebrity like Hillary Clinton, who does not even being to understand economic policy.

The Brites

Atheists like to refer to themselves as the Brights...obviously because they are "smarter" than anyone who believes in God. Since Darwinism is the principle pillar in the atheistic worldview, showing the massive flaws in Darwinism reveals the emptiness and futility of atheism.

I've stumbled across a new website which mocks their self-appointed title and reveals the hypocrisy of many of their Darwinian claims. It's written from the perspective of the Darwinists in a tongue-in-cheek fashion. Check out the headline archive for barrels of laughs.

After you've read a few, come back here and comment on your favorite article.

UPDATE: Has anyone seen the new Dr. Dick video? Dawkins actually thought it was pro-atheism until his friends informed him that he was being mocked.

What was the world like shortly after the flood?

I'm not sure exactly what it was like, but Jon Saboe writes a fantastic book called The Days of Peleg that describes a plausible history of culture, science, linguistics, geography, and more from this time period. One of the most fascinating accomplishment of the book is that you can almost follow along in Genesis 10-14.

Saboe has obviously spent countless months researching the Bible, the flood geology, ancient history, ancient religions, and the sources of many old myths as he weaves a tale of adventure about several characters within the ancestral line of Jesus.

If you're not on my waiting list for borrowing my book, you can get it at Amazon, but don't be discouraged by the price, because the book is almost 600 pages so your page to dollar ratio is quite good. Oooopps, maybe the length will discourage you, but, I promise, when you run out of pages to read, you'll wish it were longer.

One of the blessings I received after reading it was a desire to dig deeper into God's word and study it to see if the things written by Saboe were plausible within the Biblical framework. His work is pleasantly in line with God's word. And with so many contemporary authors (Dan Brown, Dick Dawkins, Sam Harris, hitchens...) vehemently attacking the Bible, it is refreshing to read a book that is encouraging, edifying, and enlightening.
