I agree with Mark, and I have realized that prayer may be the only answer, and so I am asking for a 100 days of prayer, whatever your prayer and whoever it is directed to, please join me!! I have spoken to Obama supporters and their information is an inch deep. They are unable to understand the big picture. i am going to back in church and i am going to make a Lenten sacrifice of no candy, cake or coke. I guess, if he wins again then at least I will be healthier to withstand the Obamacare cause unfortuately, I am over 62, so I had better not have any issues!! Please join me and spread the word!
I think it's worse than tyranny. Obama represents base socialism. And the socialism Obama is selling creates massive dependency on the state, making people need the state for just about everything, from health care to food. Always remember that when the state is paying the tab, it determines what you get and how much you get. It runs your life and you have no say in the matter. That is the road Obama is going down and just look how "well" it's doing in Europe. Obama is willing to sacrifice this entire country just so he can have his "worker's paradise." Well if it didn't work in the Soviet Union, it certainly won't work here, Thank God.
If obama gets back into office the gov't will probably secure the borders because all the Americans that pay taxes and are contributors will want to get the H out of America!
The people with brains knew that Obama would destroy this country if he could, he's trying. We have to elect Romney despite our reservations. Romney has to attack Obama as much as he did to Newt, Rick Perry and Rick Santorum. I have always wondered if he'd be so ruthless with Obama, we'll see. I know that Mark said the same thing on last nights show, let's see if Romney is as desperate to win the presidency as he was the republican primary.
Brilliant - as always Mark.
I remember talking to my very liberal sister after the 2008 election. I was distraught and she was elated... "her guy" had won. I briefly talked about how this was going to be very bad for America and then she lectured me on what a patriot she was and how voting for Obama proved she was engaged and loved her country. I knew then what I know now... she was dead wrong. She embraced an anti-American terrorist. How is that patriotic?
Obama has to be defeated... nothing else matters until this monster is vanquished. Once he's removed, we can try to piece together the shattered remnants of this great country and hopefully learn from their mistake. Evil hates the truth and the light. Let's be bright this time around and point out the darkness and corruption and block the 2nd ascension of a despotic dictator in the making. Caesar Obammus must go... or America is no more.
I'm curious how your sister feels today. Does she, along with all the other disillusioned Americans, still have that elation for putting this guy into office? Does she feel regret, or is she glossing over all the harm he's done in 3 1/2 years?
The answers to these questions will tell a lot about who comes out to vote for him again, who just stays home, and who may very well cross over to the right.
The response I get from her are along the lines of disappointment. I don't think she's upset over not implementing more left-leaning laws... but I think she was disillusioned with all the "hopey changey" BS. Now my mother is another story... she's so far left it's sickening and sadly, I can't bring myself to talk to her right now. She will be voting for the Liar-and-Chief again. I'm utterly disgusted.
It's hard not to rub this all in my sister's face and reduce myself to a snarky, "I told ya so!"
My younger son is also very liberal.
He was lamenting the Patriot act and Pres. Bush.
I told him about NDAA. He had never heard of it. Gets his news
from BBC online. He was shocked. Maybe there is hope.
;-) Been there & done it. One has to be willing to be honest however - and she's not there yet in regard to politics. She actually has two aunts who wouldn't be alive if we were living in the UK/Canada as well as a sister who has benefitted greatly from our current health care system. Very frustrating.
Same with my mother in law Sober_, My husband is getting high blood pressure lately from all of her dear leader talk. :-(
I pray for my family and the rest of those too blind to see too. It's the best and only thing I can do now.
You should have an easy time presenting the facts of socialized medicine. That Obama is on record saying he wants a single payer system.
Point her to the rationing death panels in Britain and Canada where people wait months on end for procedures and in some towns in Canada you need to win a lottery to see a doctor.
Also, point to the 2.5% obamacare tax on medical devices and the massive cutback on Medicare reimbursements to doctors.
Just by using the facts you would think that if your daughter is honest she will eventually come to her senses.
As I saw with my boys, it's that steady, consistent right-leaning point of view that slowly turned them toward reality. One day, they'll wake up and think, "My goodness, the folks knew what they were talking about after all."
It's moments like those that remain in my memory forever.
LOL - haven't tried that one yet... Just about everything else to get a right leaning jab in though!
We actually have a good relationship - we just usually leave politics out of it. She's the one that gave us gray hairs and while she isn't the hell raising rebel she once was, she still is determined to do things her own way.
I constantly want to rub these last three years in many of my liberal associates faces when they whine and complain. However, I think the smart move is to be sympathetic with them, tell them you understand their disappointment, and then coyly suggest that they perhaps could lean in another direction, for their own good. At least it will get them to open their eyes a little bit.
Unfortunately, as the saying goes, "you can lead them to water, but..."
Remember, I'm suggesting to all that we each try to sway 10 people to vote (whether it's lefties coming over to our side, neutrals who are disgruntled with the economy, or righties who stayed home last time).
My oldest daughter is a total lefty - she's finishing up her Bachelor's and will be going to get her Master's degree soon (medical field, so it's necessary) and threw an absolute hissy fit about the fact that she'll have to start paying back the one student loan she has while in graduate school. I have to say I didn't resist the urge to laugh and say 'Well, good thing the President saved you from having to pay an extra $85/year when he pushed that student loan bill to be passed, huh???' She didn't find me amusing...
I'm sure she'll be voting for Obama. Sadly. I love her, but she has chosen her path and it veers left. Praying for her eyes to open is my only recourse at this point.
"or is she glossing over all the harm he's done in 3 1/2 years? " Unfortunately, many still believe dear leader when he continually proclaims, "It's all Bush's fault."
"The Declaration of Dependence" - by Barack Obama
The anonymous Declaration of the 57 United States of America,
When in the course of my reign, it becomes necessary for one man to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and for me to assume the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Saul Alinsky entitle me, with no respect to the opinions of mankind requires that I should declare the causes which impel me to usurpation.
I hold these truths to self-evident, that all men are created somewhat equal, that I am endowed by my own doing with certain undocumented workers Rights, and among these are Pro-Choice, Class separation, and the pursuit of my Happiness.
--That to secure these rights, Government branches are set aside by me, deriving my just powers from the indoctrination of the governed.
--That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of my ends, it is my Right to alter or to legislate around it, and to institute my own executive orders, laying it's foundation on such principles as I deem applicable, as to what I believe most likely to effect my own Safety and Happiness.
And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of the Media, I solely pledge to take, from each of you, your Lives, your Fortunes and your sacred Honor.
So help me, me.
He has already started rewriting the Constitution as well:
I the President of the United States, in Order to dissolve this Union Completely, establish myself as Ruler of All, ensure the failure of the Rich, provide a reasonable means to circumvent our Defence, put everyone on Welfare, and secure the blessings of Allah to my subjects, do ordinance... er... ordinal... um... ornament the abolishment of the Constitution for the United States of America and declare myself KING!
Preamble is done...
For all of us Christians who frequent RS: if you're not already, it's time to get on your knees and pray the God of Heaven to save us from the tyranny.
PS Mark left out my own state of NJ.
Pray to God not to save us but for the strength to summon up the gifts he has bestowed on us to recognize and crush the plans of the evildoers and save ourselves. There is a viable, albeit long term, path to restoration. Listen to Levin on a daily basis, as he brings light to our journey.
As I tolld someone else I am willing to stand and fight, but only with God at my side. Some battles must be fought supernaturally and so while on my knees I don the full armor of God and stand strong wielding the sword of the Spirit. (Eph 6: 11-17)
It is written: "the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds" (2 Cor10: 4,5) THE BLOOD, THE NAME & THE WORD.
I've been praying for redemption for this nation since before NObama was elected. And double after. If he gets re-elected. It's probably game over. I'm not sure the nation could survive a second term and recover.
I feel like we are fighting a cancer of the collective body of this nation. We make strides. The doctors report good news... But then a week later... it's back again... Now comes November. If we don't eradicate the cancer for once and for all... We are doomed!
I fought hard against NObama in 2008! I was even an ABO back then! Now... Everyone has lived under the NObama regime...
I am full of HOPE for CHANGE in November! God willing! We shall prevail!
I, too, have been praying for a long time for our nation. This I know; if the God of Heaven does not save us then........................................ and this is why I put out a call to our brothers and sisters that, if they are not already, they will fall to their knees in prayer and cover our nation with the weapons of our warfare; the Blood, the Name and the Word.
May God have mercy upon us as we place our trust in Him.
Jefferson was right. Time to beat those plow sheers into swords or sit down and shut up. The left has stoked the flames of rebellion or destruction of the republic for decades now. Are we to just take it for infinity or fight back. 6-12 months and they're done. No work, no food, no water no pity.
A re-election could ignite a civil war and as bad as that sounds, we've been in real need of one for a long time. Most civilizations go through this thing as a survival occurrence but we've managed to avoid them for some crazy reason. I suppose we're just to whinny and whipped to get off our duffs and fight it out with the obvious enemy, progressives.
I heard last night that Charlie Rangle won his district again. As long as people like him, stretch, dingy, and others are winning Congressional and Senate seats we're going to have a hard time defeating crap bills which go before dear leader or mittens to sign.
Levin is right though. America is on the edge, and a "crisis" they can't waste, an evil plan as Joe said, or a re election will kill this great Country.
That's a good point about the stupidity of people voting the likes of Rangel. Then again those like Rangel are often from liberal or gerry-mandered districts so that shouldn't be surprising.
The more you listen to Levin I hope you and others start to realize that as much as a RINO that Romney is that he's nowhere near as bad as Maobama. We all must do everything we can to defeat Maobama.
As the Great One said: "I'd rather fight with Romney than give Maobama a 2nd term!".
Rangel's District is a perfect example
MOST of the district lives off the government
That's the DemocRAT way -
Levin is correct it is very frustrating
I am truly convinced ZERO has an evil plan - I know it sounds crazy
Not to sound nerdy (too late I suppose), but your comment reminded me of the beginning of Battlestar Galactica (the new TV series) - about the Cylons... where at the beginning of each show the text stated that they have a plan. Obama is equally as sinister - he came in the guise of an American and proceeded to nuke America from the inside-out.
He MUST be defeated.
He most definitely has an evil plan...to destroy this great nation. He is performing an economic jihad.
