Election Eve: VOTE

I have since changed my mind about not voting.  The first reason is Romney sat down and talked with Billy Graham.  Billy Graham is someone who I highly respect.  The second reason is that Romney tend to support Israel.  In NIV Bible Genesis 12: 2 -3 2 I will make you into  a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.  3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all the peoples on earth will be blessed through you.  The Bible is making a reference about Israel.  The decision is yours get out and help make a change VOTE!

Jesus is my guide

The truth will come out when you go against God‘s word.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

John Edwards is good example for this.  John Edward is American politician  and he served as U.S. Senator from North Carolina.

John Edwards ran in the race for   Democratic president in 2002 and 2006.  In 2007, John Edwards was caught cheating on his wife, Elizabeth Edwards, who had cancer.  In 2010, Elizabeth Edwards separated from John Edwards.  Sadly, Elizabeth Edwards died on Dec. 6, 2010.  John Edwards suffered the seeds that he sowed and lost his wife due to a separation.  John Edwards was also accused of using a million dollars of donated money from his campaign to hide a sex scandal.  Yesterday, John Edwards was found not guilty.  There was not enough evidence to convict him.  He did apologize and admitted that he was morally wrong.  He said  that he was responsible for his sins.  I hope he is sincere and gets his life on track for Jesus.  Only God knows if he is sincere.  If you seek worldly pleasures you will fail.  When you seek God’s way for your life you will succeed.

Proverbs 2:1-2 (NIV)  is passage about moral benefits of wisdom

1 My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, 2 turning your ear to wisdom  and applying your heart to understanding, 3 and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, 4 and if you will look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, 5 then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.  6 For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.  7 He holds victory in store for the upright, he is shield to those walk blameless, 8 for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones.  9 Then you will understand what is right and just and fair – every good path.  10 For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.  11 Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you.  12 Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men, from men whose words are perverse,  13 who leave the straight paths to walk in dark ways, 14 who delight in doing wrong and rejoice in the perverseness of evil, 15 whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways.  16 It will save you also from the adulteress, from the wayward wife with her seductive words, 17 who has left the partner of her youth and ignored the covenant she made before God.  18 For her house leads down to death and her paths to the spirits of the dead.  19 None who go to her return or attain the paths of life. 20 Thus you will walk in the ways of good men and keep to the paths of the righteous.  21 For the upright will live in the land, and the blameless will remain in it; 22 but the wicked will be cut off from the land, and the unfaithful will be torn from it.

If I lost it all I will always have Jesus and I will be faithful to him everyday.  I rather have Jesus is song by the Crabb Family.  I rather have Jesus than anything in this word!

 

Talking Taxes in Tulsa

A lot of Alphabet Soup organizations are on the top of Googletrends today. GSA, Secret Service, and IRS, in that order. Everyone that knows Duncan McShame knows that he is a fan of big government (quite honestly, I ask myself every day at work why God didn’t make me a government bureaucrat). And I’m today is Tax Day, and I’m reading about taxes in The Federalist Papers. So I guess I’ll rant for a while about the abuses of the Alphabet Suit types that are destroying our republic in Screwtape fashion.

First I’ll deal with the GSA. First of all, what the heck is the GSA?

I know, I should probably know, as an ex-National Merit Scholar, what the GSA is. But I’m afraid when I first saw it, I was tired enough to mistake it for GAS.

According to their own sight, they are the General Services Administration. Now, if your an uninformed boob like myself, you are asking yourself, “What the h— are ‘general servises?’ ” Somehow, I don’t think that this office performs housecleaning for Flag Officers of the military branches.

http://www.gsa.gov/portal/category/100000

If you look at their first page, you still won’t know what they do. If you dig a little deeper,

No...not gay-straight alliance....The General Services Administration has managed the Federal Government's business since 1949....slightly longer than some of their South Pacific meetings....

you will learn that they were established by Truman to “manage the Federal Government’s business.”

First of all….I didn’t know that our government was a business…..Second of all….when do I get a job where I can reward myself for doing nothing with three weeks in the South Pacific?

http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/DC-Decoder/Decoder-Wire/2012/0417/GSA-scandal-Does-agency-have-culture-of-waste-fraud-and-abuse

Yeah…I’m on my vacation now….so maybe I’m being a hypocrite….but I think if I ask my boss for 800 grand for a Vegas conference…..yeah I’ll probably be out of a job. But then, maybe my place is in the government, after all.

Now, for the Secret Service.

First of all….what is so secret about their service? Unlike the GSA, most folks have a very clear idea about what these guys are all about. And, unlike a lot of government agencies, I see the

Agent Anderson....I've acquired the target.....waiting for Obama to transfer funds from GSA Vegas trip to Secret Service Recreational Relief Fund.....or maybe we can just print more money and spend it at the Bunny Ranch....

point to these guys. Wacko-crazies wanna kill the president….so, in the interests of keeping our society stable, we pay these guys a ton of money for the preservation of the life of the POTUS. Makes perfect sense to me.

But….really guys….prostitutes…? First of all….you guys have the greatest pick-up line in the history of picking up chicks. You don’t need any money….just go to the local bar and tell these bimbos what you do, and how many movies are made off of your experiences….well, this is a Christian blog, so I’ll let your imaginations work out the rest of the details.

http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Americas/2012/0417/Secret-Service-scandal-sheds-light-on-sex-tourism-in-Latin-America

Look, maybe they weren’t using government money. Maybe they did an exemplary job. Maybe it is as common as the cold to spend the lonely evenings with a lady of said. But it bothers me. Maybe it shouldn’t. Maybe it isn’t a big deal. But the guys that are supposed to be the paragons of discipline, virtuous enough to take a bullet for someone else…..how can any of that be true if they are base enough to contribute to

Secret Service Agents spent time with prostitutes in this plush resort. I wonder if that will be in the brochure....

the horrific trade of human beings? I think most of us are aware of the sex/slave traffic of women in third world countries. This is one of the most vile abuses of liberty that has ever existed. Don’t tell me you’ll give your life for liberty if you’ll contribute to the sex trade. I can forgive it (as a Christian, I am commanded to….) but please don’t tell me that we’re just supposed to turn a blind eye to it. The media acts like its no big deal. But then, stealing an election from Ron Paul is no big deal to them, either.

Last of all, the IRS. Does anybody remember the KGB? For those too young to remember, there was a time when the U. S. and U. S. S. R. were permanently poised on the verge of nuclear war. The KGB was the feared and hated intelligence arm of the Soviet Union. And they felt that their American counterpart was…the IRS.

Well…anyway….gotta go……enjoy your Alphabet Soup! And don’t forget to pay/file your taxes!

The harvest is past, the summer has ended, and we are not saved (Jer. 8: 20)

Mitt Romney is the John Kerry of the Republican party. My good friend “B” came up with that one. Its why I can’t get excited about the guy. Just as Democrats could not feel any excitement about John Kerry, and just as all voters could not trust his constant flip flopping….so do we feel about Romney. And a lot of us feel disenfranchised by the process. We feel as if a political cabal is essentially ramming this candidate down our throats.

I love how recently Rush Limbaugh and other conservative pundits had announced the recent video of Ron Paul‘s campaign, describing Romney as a flip flopper. I thought it funny, because I had known about it for months. All I am is a fourth rate blogger with 500 views, and I’d known about this video for months.Here it is:

Ron Paul ad- “Washington Machine” Mitt Romney flip flop

Also this one: Ron Paul-Mitt Romney flip flopper (whatever it takes)

The other day, I was in my car, driving to a store and listening to the local FOX affiliate radio station. Neal Boortz was talking with Jamie Dupree. Don’t get me wrong…I respect the heck out of both of these guys. But Boortz was asking Jamie if he had heard of a poll that showed that Ron Paul could win an election between RP and Barack Obama. Jamie said he’d never heard of such a poll. I went home that night, googled it….and it was the first thing to show up at the top of the page! Again….fourth rate blogger can find it….why can’t they….?

I’m afraid this post is going to be a little disjointed. I’m watching my kid, and that means I’ll get about two paragraphs typed, and then be interrupted by him (though he’s well the heck worth it. Jesus, my wife, and my kid are about the only things that make my life worth one thin dime….). My wife is working right now. I have to work 50 to seventy hours a week, and she works part time, 15-30 hours a week, just so we can maintain some minimal degree of comfort. The poor woman works her fingers to the bone to help out her husband and son. She deserves to be sitting at home watching soap operas and eating bon bons. Instead, she works herself half to death and watches our boy most of the time. This is one reason why I wish Ron Paul could be elected. I see little hope of our lives getting any better, I see little hope of her getting the life she deserves, if he isn’t.

There’s about twenty things I’d love to talk about, but I think I’ll just deal with a few things. I’ve been trying to do more reading of other blogs…trying to learn the trade, so to speak. And those who follow me….well, I like to return the favor as best I can. That’s how the American system works. Trade of money, trade of ideas.

Ok…so…random element one. The liberty scientist blog at wordpress.com brought this to my attention. It is a virtual map that shows the growing dependence on government throughout the nation. I’m going to put a link to it. If it doesn’t work….go to liberty science. You might want to go there any way. They’ve got some fascinating information that relates to both politics and science.

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2012/02/12/us/entitlement-map.html

Second random thought. I was checking out uneditedpolitics.wordpress.com. He’s gotten a tons of videos (and gosh, I truly wish I had the time to watch all of them….I think this guy is better source for news than CNN, Fox, MSNBC, NPR, and Rush Limbaugh all combined), but there are two that I’d like to highlight.

Senator Sessions Questions Secretary of Defense Panetta

The general in the background sure looks sinister to me….More importantly, this dangerous policy of ceding our sovereignty over to NATO, or worse, the UN, is a policy that has been followed by both Republican and Democrat Presidents.

Last random point. Another video from Uneditedpolitics.

Ron Paul Speech in 1987 as Presidential Candidate for the Libertarian Party-9/1/87.

I think its telling that he starts his speech by acknowledging his family. That is what this whole thing is all about.

You may be wondering why my title is that particular scripture verse. I don’t know that our time is up, but I think the razor’s edge gets thinner. Until he loses California, I am not giving up hope. But then, as many states as he’s had that he should have won and did not (I’ll let you do your own research into the voter fraud in this election), I have no doubt that the percentages beforehand will be high….yet Romney will mysteriously walk off with California….

The American Republic: In Recquiescat Pace!

 

Romney beats Ron Paul by 200 votes in Maine caucus. 200 votes for continued Obamacare

There is more chance of winning the powerball lottery than of Ron Paul winning the nomination if you believe the media. I’ll admit, I have my own moments of discouragement. It seems the American people are more willing to vegetate to The Voice than they are to actually learn anything about history, politics, or economics. But even if the Republic is going to go down in flames, I’m going to do the little something that I can do, to try to preserve the liberties that men have died for.

I promised to answer questions about Obamacare. I feel I did that, but I didn’t do it in a post. I answer them in a page that you can click on above most of these posts. It is “Obama‘s Valentine to America, Free Health Care for life.” But I feel I need to do at least one more post about Obamacare before I move on to Ron Paul’s foreign policy, and his ideas to defend our borders. So, while I wish Ron Paul had won in Maine, I’m encouraged that he did double his percentages from 2008 (though most conservative media outlets won’t report that). And he only lost be 200 votes. Not terrible for someone who either is taboo, or unelectable. I know I’ve documented the media deceptions, but I’ll throw out a couple more videos, and then finish up with my take on Obamacare.

Busted: Fox News CPAC Ron Paul Video Deception

Ron Paul hate from establishment Republicans

Now that I have that out of my system, I need to tell you what makes Obamacare so bad for America?

I believe there are three reasons why the health care reform is untenable. I think it will actually 1) increase medical costs (we are told it will reduce them), 2) it will make insurance costs prohibitive to most businesses, especially small businesses, and 3) it is estimated to reduce physician salaries by 15% to 20% (but then, they make enough money any way….never mind their $100,000+ student loans that many of them have to repay…..)

1. Obamacare will increase, not decrease, medical costs.

It is an economic truth that government subsidies tend to increase the cost of things. Why do you think that farming is so heavily subsidized? People are told it is to keep the small farmers afloat and thus keep our food prices low. But the truth is that farmers have lobbied for about a hundred and fifty years for these subsidies, so that they can charge higher prices for food and make more money!

http://www.downsizinggovernment.org/agriculture/subsidies

If you subsidize farmers, the price of food goes up. If you subsidize education, the price of a degree goes up. If you subsidize health care, the cost of health care goes up!

http://econlog.econlib.org/archives/2004/12/subsidies_raise.html

2. Obamacare will create prohibitive costs for businesses, especially small businesses.

I’ll just quote one thing for this. A 40% tax will be placed on “Cadillac” insurance plans.

http://www.doughroller.net/news-analysis/health-care-reform-bill-facts-figures/

These costs will be passed on to the consumer, or will be paid for by laying off employees. You know that rich fat cat employers won’t pay for it out of their own profits if they can avoid it. This is sheer speculation, but I wonder if this was a factor in the recent Pepsi layoffs.

Sidenote: another example of how the little guy gets to suffer, while the corporate big wig makes out like a bandit:

http://articles.businessinsider.com/2012-02-09/news/31040444_1_d-amore-soda-sales-pepsico

3. Physician income will drop 15% to 20%. Yet we’ll expect them to take better care of us…..? Seriously…..?

This seems to be the best site for this information:

http://www.nationalcenter.org/NPA606.html

Look, I know a lot of you get mad when someone makes money. (Some of you will think me a hypocrite…I’m mad that Amore is getting two million dollars, not because I don’t want people to make money, I just resent it when they are rewarded by crony capitalism. The money Amore made is fine….but don’t reward him two million for shafting thousands of hard workers!) But the truth is, I want my doctor well paid. I want him to have an incentive to take care of me. How much care would you take of someone if you’re only making minimum wage? When it comes to people, you get what you pay for. When it comes to government, do pay for what others get…..

And these are the reasons Obamacare is not good for the country. The only candidate that seriously wants to repeal it is Ron Paul. And, as a doctor and a student of economics, I think he has a better understanding of the situation than any of the other candidates. I’ll leave you with a video to that effect.

Ron Paul: Obamacare will damage doctor-patient relationship

Ron Paul can revitalize our economy, five ways how. Part 1.

ABC, CBS, MSNBC, Fox News, and newspapers throughout our country are hoodwinking us about our economy. In their short sighted endeavors to elect yes-men candidates to high political office, the major news outlets have sold the American people into a brave new slavery. The media black outs seem to be working, so it is up to the internet to inform America about how we are on a knife’s edge, tottering over the abyss.

In earlier posts, I established that Ron Paul was our best bet for restoring our Constitution.

https://noxforchristmas.wordpress.com/2012/01/10/ron-paul-vs-the-world-your-own-personal-constitution/

Now I’m dealing with the number one concern in American’s minds for the current presidential election, the economy. I’ve established that we’ve spent the last seventy years digging our own grave’s, economically speaking.

https://noxforchristmas.wordpress.com/2012/01/15/yes-to-ron-paul/

And then I spent several posts demonstrating the flawed economic thinking of the other candidates. Besides my blogs, I’ve also found that gunnyg@wordpress.com, and trutherator@wordpress.com provide insights into the various candidate’s perspectives.

So now its time to tell you five ways how Ron Paul can revitalize our economy.

1. He was informed enough to predict many of the current problems in our economy.

There are several videos that document how Ron Paul predicted, with uncanny accuracy, the pressing problems we find ourselves facing.

Ron Paul on the Economy

Ron Paul’s 2002 Predictions Come True

Now, you have to ask yourself, were any of the other candidates making these predictions a decade ago? If you Google “Obama predicts housing collapse” you get…..videos about Ron Paul predicting the housing collapse.  The same is true of all the other candidates. You can find no evidence of them making such predictions because they simply didn’t. All of them were taken by surprise. All of them except Ron Paul. So, what does he know that we don’t?

2. He knows that we’ve got to dramatically cut spending now.

It is fairly well known that Ron Paul is promising to cut a trillion (!) dollars from the budget….in his first year in office. He plans on cutting his own salary by roughly 90%!

http://content.usatoday.com/communities/onpolitics/post/2011/10/ron-paul-spending-cuts-/1

Compare this to the other candidates, who will either have cuts in the billions, or not cut spending at all….

Its hard to find good information on Obama’s budget (so much for transparency), but the best estimates say he will also cut a trillion….over ten years time…..

http://www.npr.org/2011/02/13/133735688/Previewing-Obamas-Budget-Cuts

Its been a little difficult for me to find solid figures for the other candidates. I think that Santorum has the most solid information on him, but the cuts still seem substantially lower than Ron Paul’s…or Obama’s, for that matter….

http://www.businessweek.com/news/2012-01-24/santorum-tax-cuts-boost-deficit-by-1-3-trillion-study-says.html

And if you’ve been following this blog (or even just following the news….) then you understand that we are trillions in debt, and our economy won’t support that kind of debt for much longer.

And just what has the government been spending its money on? Basically, Big Brother has spent trillions of your dollars keeping you reigned in….

3. The government has become Juggernaut. Its too big, and has its hand in too many cookie jars.

Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves- Ronald Reagan

I hope our wisdom will grow with our power, and teach us, that the less we use our power the greater it will be- Thomas Jefferson

I’m afraid that this one seems self evident to me, but I realize I must back it up a little bit, for those that are fans of big government.

The government has been growing at an alarming rate since W. W. I. The Great Wars required a gargantuan national effort, and only the government was big enough to pull it off. But, while things did scale back after the Wars, they were never scaled back to prewar conditions. And the government, having gotten a taste of power, soon imbibed more and more of that sweet wine. And now Washington is drunk with Bacchanalian intensity.

And they haven’t backed off the sauce since Obama took over. In the last ten years, government jobs have increased ten percent, private sector jobs, one percent. Private sector salaries have stagnated, while the government has given itself fat bonuses. The average private sector salary is $61,000 per year. The average government salary…..hold on to your wallets….is $123, 000. I knew I should have taken a government job…..

http://governmentgonewild.org/

And the regulations we live under are insane! The government has simply become too intrusive in our lives.

This is Ron Paul’s answer to this problem:

Well, it’s getting late. I’ll share the last two reasons in a later post.
