|Looking at the Heavenwithin|
I haven't written a political entry that were all my own words, in over 2 and a half years. And I don't know if I really will save this entry. *smiles*
I think a politician, nowadays: has its synonym with: causing one to be nauseous; is a deceiver; manipulator; enemy of freedom; self-serving. There are a few exceptions to the 'rule,' nowadays, but only a relatively few on the National scene: are exempt from corruption.
It's painful to think of much farther America can sink: politically, economically, morally, spiritually....and in a vision that America has some 200+ years ago...which I will paste a bit of their vision, now:
IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America
hen in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.
That vision has actually long sense ceize to become a possible remedy in referring to altering our government...Cause there is no way that the people can any longer alter or abolish our government. So, we can say that the Declaration was a necessary and a great document: but it no longer applies to our time...certainly not in altering or abolishing our government..
I copied the following from an article (with the link below this article) that I got online:
"There is a sense in which this writer agrees with him. Unlike England at the time of our nation’s founding, we do not have an official state church. And I don’t want one — I don't want Barack Obama to be the head of the church.
Were there Muslims along Paul Revere’s ride, or standing next to Patrick Henry when he proclaimed, "Give me liberty or give me death"? Where there Muslims among the framers or signers of the Declaration of Independence, which states that all men — not just Muslims, as Islamic law would have it — are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Were there Muslims among those who drafted the Constitution and vigorously debated its provisions, or among those who enumerated the Bill of Rights, which guarantees — again in contradiction to the tenets of Islamic law — that there should be no established national religion, and that the freedom of speech should not be infringed?
"The primary contact our Founding Fathers had with Islam occurred during their struggles with the Barbary pirates, who from 1500-1800 carried over a million European Christians — including some Americans — into Muslim slavery. For centuries the Knights of Malta protected Europe from the Barbary pirates, but after their demise the European powers decided that paying tribute to the Barbary rulers in exchange for protection was easier and cheaper than fighting them. But this galled the Americans. In 1786, while Thomas Jefferson and John Adams were in Europe, they asked the ambassador from Tripoli by what right Tripoli could claim tribute from nations which had done his country no injury. Jefferson and Adams reported the ambassador’s response:
"It was written in their Koran that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet [Mohammed] were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful [Muslims] to plunder and enslave; and that every muslim who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise.
"When Jefferson became president in 1801, he refused to pay tribute to the Barbary states, and Tripoli, Algiers, and Tunis declared war on the United States. The American Navy blockaded the coast of North Africa, and American marines stormed “the shores of Tripoli” and captured the city, forcing the Barbary rulers to agree to terms of peace. The Barbary states soon broke the treaty and demanded tribute again, and President James Madison again sent the U.S. Navy to the Mediterranean, forcing the Barbary states to again sign a treaty of peace.
I think that one's past can be very instructive as to how one just might behave in the future. That was exactly what I thought when I read about the following information:
Bill Ayers, has had a 20 year relationship with Obama, and continues to be an Obama supporter. Ayers, shown standing on the American flag, was a ferocious, violent, revolutionary Marxist in his halcyon days as a Weatherman leader. He and his Weatherman bombers were enamored of Ho Chi Minh, Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, Mao Tse-tung -- indeed, all the murderous heroes on the Left. Referring to the Weatherman members in August 1969, he said (according to the FBI): "We’re revolutionary Communists."
Castro endorsed Obama
Farrakhan: who has drawn attention for calling Judaism a "gutter religion" and suggesting crack cocaine might have been a CIA plot to enslave blacks: endorsed Obama.
The Communist party endorsed Obama.
Dictator Hugo Chaves endorsed Obama.
Reverend Wright who is anti-white, anti-America, who was Obama's pastor for 20 years: endorsed Obama. Wright famoulsy said to his spirited congregation: that God dams this country. So there won't be any mistake as to what I just wrote: I didn't take the Lord's name in vain. I was just quoting the reverend.
Those are just a few of the hi-lites of Obama's relationships and scary endorsements: that just didn't sit right with me. And they indicated to me, that his path was one that wasn't good for America. It certainly wouldn't be a path that America has been journeying on, for over 200 years. It seems to be a logical thought to me: that when dictators and socialists are endorsing a candidate: they expect the candidate to take a path that will please them.
And I think that we have to say..or I will say it: Obama certainly has please many of his supporters; not all, though. But no one can please everyone.
Of course, there always are those behind the scenes that may have great power to influence candidates. We can probably say: virtually all politicians, are beholden to somebody(s) that helps 'them' to attain office. And maybe Obama just happen to be in the right spot at the right time, when his Obama's political philosophy: was a dream of his about to come true. Yeah, maybe everything was in place for a socialist to push thru his philosophy, thanks to those behind the scenes; and thanks to those presidents that came before him! So many elements helped him gain the presidency: we wanted change for changes sake; we as a people are terribly ill-formed about so many issues in the world; the left-wing media promotes their agenda, which so many people simply accept to be true; racism on the 'left' abounded in America; apathy abounded in America; political correctness has the republican candidate saying that Obama would be a good president. Perhaps, it was all 'set up' for Obama to bring about this new vision of his; a vision very different, as I say: than the first 233 years of America.
Oh, and if there is such a thing as: the final nail in one's coffin for a country, it will be the Illegal Immigration Bill. The politicians must try to pass that bill before November's election; else many Democrats will be retiring from office. If they pass that bill, though: Ah, Democrats will rule our country for life! For it's estimated that there are something like 30 million illegal aliens in our country. No one really knows how many there are. If the bill passes: they automatically become legal citizens, and will undoubtably be beholden to their fellow democratic sisters and brothers. And the song that was sung, sarcastically, during the Great Depression of the 1930's & '40's, can be sung again: Happy days are here again." *smiles*
America may soon become unrecognizable! But Jesus is always with us. That makes things bearable. And we will always have the cherish ideas and memories of America's greatness & beauty! *smiles*
