We are at a crossroads of American History, and how we vote and who wins this Presidential Election will be the deciding factor on the fate of the United States.
What is At stake? Our right to Vote. Our Social Security. Our right to make CHOICES. I have been told that “Americans want to go back to a certain set of Values, to a MORE MORAL Government.”-What Values? The Values of The Prohibition? How did making Booze Illegal prevent people from Drinking, they just did it anyway? How is making Abortion Illegal (again – and back to the Dinosaurs for Women’s Rights) going to stop Women from finding a way to do it? If they can’t do it legally, they will just get it done any way they can. Anybody see the movie “Alfie?” (With Michael Caine) How about “Love with The Proper Stranger” (Steve McQueen and Natalie Wood) The first depicts the mental anguish of having to choose an abortion, and having to live with the Choice. The Latter depicts the same situation, and what could happen if having to resort to an Illegal Operation, which could include real physical danger. It is difficult enough having to CHOOSE to abort, but then having to find a BUTCHER or CROOKS to do it? And you can’t call every woman who wants to have one, a prostitute who is getting the procedure done for CONVENIENCE sake. With all of this attention on Fetuses, who is going to take care of the BABIES that will be born? Will YOU take care of them, will you buy them FOOD, will you get them MEDICAL CARE?
Not, I think, in an Administration whose candidate has VOWED to End the Medical Care that so many have worked for, for so long. Not in an Administration whose candidate has VOWED to cut taxes to the most wealthy people in America. And NOT in an Administration who uses tactics like THIS to get Elected, by any Scheming method possible:
Does anyone remember WATERGATE? Even Richard Nixon was man enough to resign his post. That made him a Hero to me, the admission of guilt. Now when I watched part of the Republican National Convention they had a DEFICIT CLOCK with the words “We Built It” underneath, NOT ONE WORD was mentioned about the 8-year Bush Administration. We Know that this Deficit was created under HIS watch. So in effect, they DID Build It. I will not elect a candidate whose Wife defends his withholding of Tax Returns with the words “What YOU PEOPLE have to understand…” and ‘We’ve Given You All We Are Going To Give You.” And to call things like Medicare and Social Security ENTITLEMENTS, THIS INSULTS ME TO MY CORE because I WORKED for 40 years and I PAID INTO the system which is helping me NOW. I do not deserve it because I am ENTITLED to it, I deserve it because I WORKED for it.
But even so, there are severely disabled people who could not have worked, it is our DUTY to help them in all ways possible. For a Political Party who uses the Bible to pound home so many issues, for them to want to take away what little help these people actually get is Not Christlike. For them to want to deny coverage for hopelessly disabled people smacks of Darwinism: “Natural Selection,” NOT any values from the actual Gospels or Epistles. And a Candidate that calls 47% of all Americans lazy moochers who want more “entitlements” is insulting: Not to the 47% but to 100% of all Americans.”
Galations 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
But to those Christians who will VOTE for this guy, you need to remember the words of John:
1st John 1:1 ¶ That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)
3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
5 ¶ This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
8 ¶ If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
1 ¶ My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
3 ¶ And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
A NEW COMMANDMENT:
7 ¶ Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.
8 Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.
9 He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
10 He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
11 But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
DO I FEEL LOVE coming from WestBoro Baptist Church? DO I FEEL LOVE from the CHRISTIAN RIGHT?
12 ¶ I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.
13 I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.
14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.
15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
If these people are Voting for this guy because of their VALUES, and NOT SENDING ME LOVE, they are NO BROTHERS of MINE.
After so many years of reading the History of the Church, of the Crusades, of the Spanish Inquisitions, I have to believe that the people using the Bible to thump Absolute Authority at me have never even read their book and they have certainly never practiced any of the Teachings of their own Saviour. And they are not doing so NOW.
VOTE for CHANGE – Don’t Vote for sending the US back to The Dark Ages. DO ALL YOU CAN. GET OUT the VOTE. “WE the PEOPLE” not “WE the Corporations.”
