Drifting Into the Abyss



This ran at the Visalia Times Delta on August 31, 2016.

This is a political worldview essay.

Obama has decided that giving Iran, a terrorist nation, 400 million in cash, which some say commits three felonies, is a judicious move.

This Christian disagrees.

Liberals say that the government should solve most of our problems.

Christians know that is pure folly.

Modern liberalism proclaims that science disproves God.

Christians know that science is the study of how God made the world and how God made us.

Obama thinks giving terrorist Iran over one billion dollars of American taxpayer money is prudent. Boatloads of Christians strongly disagree.

Modern liberalism junks God by saying it is, “common sense” to believe there is no God.

Christians observe all of creation and realize there has to be a first cause and know unequivocally that God is the author of all that we can see and behold.

Modern liberalism says pretty much any sort of sex is acceptable. Rampant disease reveals the lie.

Christians know that people love their sins so they reject God.

Modern liberal media thinks that Christianity is something to be attacked.

Christians know that all men are accountable to God for their actions.

Modern liberalism does not see the relationship between socialist systems and the massive failure that they produce such as the USSR, Venezuela and Obamacare.

Christians know that any political system that rejects the God of the Bible oppresses people.

Modern liberals see no consequences in rejecting God both in this life and eternally. Christians look at the history of Israel and the history of mankind and see that those who reject God eventually suffer disastrous consequences.

Modern liberals conclude that there is no God and He has no claim on their lives.

Christians know the first claim God has on us is that He created us and the second claim is that Jesus died for each and every individual person as a ransom. Neither of these claims are trifling matters.

Modern liberals think that all employers should pay for employee contraceptive.

Christians know that this is simply a diabolical attack on Christianity and that reasonably priced contraceptives are readily available at thousands of local stores.

When I ask liberals about Bill lying to a grand jury, Hillary lying about Benghazi, and Hillary lying about her email server, the typical response is, “yes, but they got away with it.”

Christians do not take delight in evil.

In the 1930’s Hitler decided that killing Jews is acceptable.

Many Christians like Dietrich Bonhoeffer disagreed.

Liberals today have decided killing Americans in the womb is just fine.

Many Christians strongly disagree.

In the 1930’s Hitler told the churches to submit to the state, just like Obama has told American churches what to do.

Many complied. Some did not.

Modern liberalism is on the wrong side of history.

Christians make mistakes but more often than not work to get things right.

Liberals reject God so that they can do whatever they want.

Christians recognize that doing whatever you want eventually leads to destruction.

Liberals protest often enough around the world – usually trying to get a government to act.

There were 7000 Christian martyrs in 2015.

Christians know that oppressors will kill them for their faith yet they do not flinch.

The Founding Fathers sacrificed their fortunes and lives to birth our great nation.

Whose side are you on?

Nineteen Ways to Repair and Overhaul Our Country

This ran at Intellectual Conservative on 9/15/16.

First, put term limits on all of Congress. The Senate has a boatload of dysfunctional dinosaurs and the House has a multitude of greedy power-mongering weasels.

Second, outlaw lobbyists. It is, “We the People,” not, “we the corporations,” nor, “we the special interests.” The current system is a crony capitalism process with insiders and politicians doing each other financial favors – otherwise known as bribes.

Third, abolish the EPA, the Dept of Ed, Dept of Ag, and every other regulatory agency. It is congress that makes laws – not bureaucrats and unelected do-gooders. Obama’s regulations cost taxpayers and businesses 1.8 trillion dollars per year.

Third, abolish government employee unions. When government employees go on strike they hold the public hostage and raid public funds. Also there is an extortion scheme that runs from taxpayers to union dues to liberal democrat politician election funds.

Fourth, finally declare that separation of church and state is nowhere to be found in the constitution. The influence and morality of the Bible improves both individuals and institutions.

Fifth, make cable TV providers give consumers free market choices by allowing them to choose the channels they wish to receive and pay for. Democratic Party operatives like CNN and MSNBC extort cash from cable package set ups that pay them money to stay on the air.

Sixth, abolish the IRS and institute a flat tax. The government plays favorites and invites bribes and corruption by taxing different people and entities at different rates.

Seventh, make Congress live under the exact same laws they put on the American public.

Eighth, return to the gold standard. Our money is backed by thin air and Obama has been printing it like a jackal on steroids.

Ninth, abolish the inheritance tax. Good parents leave an inheritance to their children and it is over-the-top greed for the government to steal a hefty portion of it.

Tenth, get back to the Rule of Law. Modern liberalism is a strong delusion and it corrupts everything in its path. Observe how tainted our current DOJ, IRS and Supreme Court is.

Eleventh, quit killing Americans in the womb. It is completely barbaric, sacrifices our future and brings a curse.

Twelfth, put illicit drug makers, drug runners and drug dealers in prison for a very long time. Drugs ruin people’s lives.

Thirteen. Immediately stop all ILLEGAL immigration. The current open border scheme is to create a dependentDemocrat Party voting bloc… nothing more. When you cut your skin do you just leave the wound wide open? A nation without borders opens itself up to all sorts of rogue invaders.

Fourteen. Let pastors speak on politics. Freedom of speech is a First Amendment right.

Fifteen, pass a law that all voters show proper ID. Not doing so is simply a method for liberal democrats to cheat in a multitude of ways. All of the shrill surrounding liberal objections to this matter are pure subterfuge.

Sixteen – have we the people vote on politician salaries and perks so that these politicians cannot simply raid public funds by their own whim.

Seventeen, immediately prosecute all lawlessness such as presidents lying to grand juries, secretary of states lying to the public, and presidents committing possible felonies by giving cash to Iran as a ransom.

Eighteen remove all liberal activist judges who have no regard for our Constitution and the Rule of Law but cite European Law and use the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment to justify everything under the sun.

Last, study our heritage. There is a reason our country is the greatest country in the history of the world.

Now someone is going to say this, “That is just way too much. We could never get all of that accomplished.” Maybe not but it is high time to get started. And the only reason that we do not start immediately is because we have so very few statesmen and a multitude career politicians.

President Harry Truman in the American Patriot’s Bible gives us direction, “If men and nations would but live by the precepts of the ancient prophets and the teachings of the Sermon on the Mount, problems which now seem so difficult would soon disappear….” There, “is a supreme opportunity for the church to continue to fulfill its mission on earth… [and to] provide the shock forces to accomplish this moral and spiritual awakening. No other agency can do it. Unless it is done, we are headed for the disaster we would deserve. Oh for an Isaiah or a Saint Paul to re-awaken this sick world to its moral responsibilities.”

The God of the Holy Bible is always the path to good things political or otherwise.
