constitution-signing1

Only fools believe government to be benevolent. Only Christ is benevolent and a government that protects the inalienable rights of its citizens acts on the behalf of Jesus Christ. So was, for this purpose, our constitution written. The fools who declare our constitution archaic and out of date have no honest appreciation for the Liberty and Freedom and Christlike living it is designed to protect. It was not designed to protect godless atheism or a tyrannical Federal government. It was designed to protect us from such things by providing for the FREE exercise of our religious freedom and the pursuit of our own personal happiness.

The abuses over the past 50 years have given a permissive society an excuse to decry the value provided by our sacred constitution. Yes I said sacred. Not ordained or inspired by Christ as the Bible but by the Godly wisdom and principle of Christlike men who sacrificed all they had for the principles penned within. To mock or belittle its tenets is disrespect of the highest degree and one must ignore the millions of lives that have been either lost or impacted in its defence. In everything give thanks for this is the will of God concerning you and remember…..

Government Regulations Screwed Me!

A little more on this issue. There is no special morality to being a centrist but there is to be a conservative. As a political Conservative and not a Republican I am passionate about the founding principles that gave us a LIMITED Judeo Christian based government. Limited government has grown to over-sized government and put us into a $16 trillion debt problem from both parties. I’m for any political candidate that uses his political skill and gravitas to influence the opposing party for the basic principles afore mentioned.This would have to bring us closer to the middle of course but you cannot expect a centrist candidate at this time in our history (McCain) to pull us back to where we came from. Our progressive politicians have driven us further to the left and a European style government (that’s going broke I might add)  and I believe that was not the intention of our Founders. Just demonizing the few corporations that have exploited its employees doesn’t invalidate our free enterprise system with limited governance.

Government regulations destroyed the corporation I worked for, for 16 years, and the company my wife built from scratch and ran for 14 years. The government put 10,000 out of work in my company and 43 from my wife’s. And also put us both out of work. A whole lot of time invested for a future that never materialized due to government regulations.Regulations created as political leverage to “protect” the citizenry from “Big Corporations”. Bull Crap! I was doing just fine before liberal politicians seized power and attempted to tip the scales in their favor by exploiting a disaster for a few lousy votes. I trust my Lord is able to protect me through the change but attempting to praise compromise,which is a word describing something  He never did – put Him on a Cross by the compromisers or liberal/progressive politicians of His day.

Help Obama Pack

So early this morning while having fun posting new and exciting facts about the upcoming election on Facebook, my darling sensitive wife made an astounding statement. “Why do we always have to be so hard on Barack Obama?”she says. I leapt off the bed! Are you kidding? My fiery eyed conservative Mississippi wife, all of a sudden, has sympathy for our soon to be ex-president? “Yes,” she says. ” I think we need to consider all the work he’s going to have to go through packing all his stuff to move out in January; so we need to help him.” Help him! I cried. So how do you suppose we help him move out? Well, she said. “Do you remember how difficult it was finding enough boxes in good shape to put all our stuff in last time we moved?” Yes, I said, as the memory of loading all those boxes from grocery stores in the back of our car day after day; just hoping we had found enough for our move, came flooding back to my mind. We had accumulated a lot of stuff. Well, she said. I think it would be the right thing for us to consider how much stuff our soon to be ex-president has accumulated over the last four years and we need to help him with the boxes. Wow….you have a point there I said. Why don’t we just create a website with some simple instructions on how all of our friends and like-minded conservatives can give Michelle and Barack a hand.

So if you are inclined to be a good Samaritan and want to do one last favor for the man at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue,

Saving my Family from Barack Obama

Today my son was kind enough to share an Obama political cartoon and asked me what I thought. So I answered his question as best I could. Just read below.

Half truths and distortions. A well done propaganda piece appealing with a cartoon to those who are easily fooled by a well produced and scripted ad. If I had never studied US or World history I think I would be fooled as well. Most people are too busy to take the time to worry about the accuracy of his statements. If I thought you were interested I guess I could go point by point and provide clarity to the claims and show the distortions.


But just think about these few facts which is counter to the ad’s overall argument.

1. The US constitution declares that personal rights and states’ rights are protected FROM the Federal Government.

http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/constitution.html

Why? Because we started and won a Revolutionary war to deliver us from the Federal Government of England. We do not want a King at the federal level. Our great country and its economy and prosperity is driven and grown by the “Rich” who create jobs and got there through hard work innovation and a free enterprise economy (capitalism) not the middle class. Just tell me, how many jobs have you given anyone versus Steve Jobs? Obama is trying to create a great divide between the races and classes. Income taxes versus sales taxes are relatively new and were mostly increased due to the cost of wars.

2. The federal government is not self-sustaining…it “takes” all its money; but from only 1/2 of americans who work to build businesses, hire and pay people (the middle class). Of these business entrepreneurs 60% of all federal tax is paid by the so-called “rich” or top 5% (or most successful) of the income earners in this country. So out of all the people paying taxes who do you think really deserves to pay a little more or a little less?

http://www.ntu.org/tax-basics/who-pays-income-taxes.html.

This fact alone should tell you the cartoon is a big fat lie. Remember all the money you earn is YOURS per our constitution not the government’s. Remember we are a FREE people and Freedom means just that.

3. So in simple terms. Take your family. Let’s say you tell Ian and Gavin they need to pay you 10% of all the money they earn. So Ian,wanting to buy a bike and being the brilliant entrepreneur has an idea. He’s going to sell lemonade out front. So he works very hard to build a lemonade stand. He sits at it all day in the hot sun and takes in $10 the first day. Gavin on the other hand sees Ian’s success but doesn’t want to take the risk of going to all that work to build his own stand so instead goes to Ian and asks him if he could work for Ian instead. Ian thinks it’s a good idea to maybe stay open longer and bring in more money. He agrees to pay Gavin $3 a day. Of course with hiring Gavin he expects to make more than $10 and pay Gavin from the profits above that. So after a week Ian earns $10 the first day, $13 the second, $20 the 3rd and levels off at $20 the forth for a total of $63. Out of that Ian pays for the lemonade mix, and the materials used to build the stand and then pays Gavin his $12 for the week. Ian is left $41 dollars.

Now I ask you:

a. how much money would Gavin have made if Ian didn’t build the stand?

b. since  Gavin made $12 what gives you the right (OBAMA) to say that since he earned 30% less income than Ian he now does not have to pay you the 10% or $1.20 you said he was supposed too?

c. and to compensate for the loss in revenue, you make Ian pick up that $1.20 and pay $5.30 or 13% ( after deductions) and then you create a windfall profits tax of another 2%  for the money Ian made over the original $10 a day for a total tax of almost $6.00 because you see Ian’s making a lot more money than he projected rather than the $4.10 or 10% you originally said.

 

Final question. How enthusiastic is Ian going to be to take more risk, put in more energy to get cheated out of his hard-earned money. Where is Gavin going to work? And if Ian does chose to just not redo the lemonade stand to earn the money to buy the bike but instead goes to you for a bike (Obama phone, welfare, food stamps) guess what that does to your families economy? You might have to put Mama to work to pay for bikes and things, for those who won’t?  But of course you’ll then make more money and your darling federal government will take more of your money as well to pay for the services they give to others to get their vote so you can put them back into office, remain dependent on them and then they OWN you and you are no longer FREE…but according to the cartoon it’s all the rich guys fault. Paleeeezzzzzz!!!

 

So what’s your incentive to build your business bigger? Higher taxes or lower taxes as an incentive? Is your incentive the bigger you get the more they take?

 

If I had the resources and talent I’d make my own freaking brainless cartoon.

And that’s an American Christian Opinion

Are Americans Just Stupid?

The only reason I can imagine that people in this country would even think to give Obama a break is because they believe things crashed so hard when he got in he just couldn’t fix the problem. But if ever there was a wrong man for a job at the worst time in our history it was the inexperienced Obama. A man who came into running this country at its weakest time in 80 years. With absolutely no experience in business or governing but with policies designed to make our country into a socialist experiment that he had been studying and teaching his entire adult life.

I pray that the libs who voted for him 4 years ago understand our country cannot bear the weight of his continued experimentation both domestically and with foreign policy. It is costing us American lives. So as in every election year there is always the absolute bottom line.

Are you better off now than you were 4 years ago? Forget feeling sorry for the manipulating View wuss just because he’s black, clever, charismatic or took on too much or that he supposedly tried. Think about the millions upon millions of families that are suffering. Fathers and mothers crying because they can’t pay their light bill, or hearing their children complain of eating beans and rice or having their home for 20 years repossessed  just  because Barack Obama  failed to make things better using his communist father’s vision.

So I ask you, when your favorite football team has a 0 – 16 season every year for 4 years do you expect the owner of the team to feel sorry for the management team? Do you violently and with visceral hatred and profanity  defend the owners right to give that group of people 4 more years because they tried real hard? or do you expect that owner to fire the losing coach?….Well you are the owner of this American team and its your job to fire the losing coach Barack Obama. Wake up america.


Time for a Presidential survey

This past week I made the hard decision to have my car’s very expensive leaky/broken convertible top replaced. It didn’t make me happy. But the experience I went through with the dealership (I was forced to go to) made all the difference in the world. They took a lot of the pain away.

Then a day later I received a phone call from a very polite woman asking me kindly for a few minutes to answer 5 quick questions about my experience.

The questions were about the service, fulfillment of commitments and treatment I received from those who helped me get a very difficult job done.

Have you noticed that everybody you buy from wants a survey? Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Hotels retail stores like Macy’s. They all do. And why? because they care how well they’re doing and they want to improve their service so you and others will come back.

I see our government in a similar way. There are many things we depend on our Government for and because we have no choice, in a way, we’re forced to go to them. And you know what? I think our government should provide its citizens a list of survey questions we can answer, regarding the services received, from the President on down.

Voting is still important of course, but after the person wins all the votes and has a chance to do what we hire him to do, based on his promises,  we need to be given the opportunity to answer some  survey questions on how we think his or her performance was. Then, when and if they seek reelection we go back to the surveys and see if they are even qualified to run again. I say, if they score an average of 75% of better, let them try to get our votes again. But if they average less than 75% voter satisfaction its back to the private sector.

I think the survey should go something like this.

  1. On a scale of 1-10, one being very dissatisfied and ten being extremely satisfied how would you rate the fulfillment of the campaign promises?
  2. On a scale of 1-10, one being very dissatisfied and ten being extremely satisfied how would rate their ability to work with others to get important legislation done?
  3. On a scale of 1-10, one being very dissatisfied and ten being extremely satisfied how would rate the number of times your representative conducted town hall meetings to find out the constituency’s thoughts and feelings on an important vote?
  4. On a scale of 1-10, one being very dissatisfied and ten being extremely satisfied how was the over all conduct  of your politician?
  5. On a scale of 1-10 one being very dissatisfied and 10 being extremely satisfied how consistently did your represented uphold the constitution and laws of our nation or states as they swore to in their oath of office?

That’s all. A simple 5 quick questions. I betcha GM does it, Ford does it, your insurance company does it. All those organizations that feel YOU the CUSTOMER are important do it. So why not the citizen who is at the mercy of the politician who simply enjoys politics for the fulfillment of community service it provides or those who do it just for the prestige, power and perks. Let us, the American people “customers” see if they care enough about the citizenry to risk having an opinion or “customer/citizen” satisfaction survey done on them to determine whether they are even qualified to run for office second time.

Dad, he’s peeing in the kitchen!

So me and the wife decide we need someone to manage our household affairs. After interviewing several choices, we vote as a family. My wife and kids win because they like this guy’s endearing personality. I go along because the  guy  promises to change things in a very positive way. He even gets an award for his recent performances. Well we’re all excited until one day, soon after voting him into our home, I caught him peeing in my kitchen. I brought this up to my wife and kids but they excused it saying that I was  just being unfair. They said it was only because I didn’t vote for him in the first place. Well this goes on and every so often I catch this guy peeing in my kitchen. I got so upset I told some of my neighbors and they just shrugged it off and said I was being too critical.

The next thing I find out is that instead of going through our established household channels, like asking my wife or my permission, he starts taking cash right from our “vacation money” drawer and gives it to our kids; as special gifts for favors! Well now I’m really pee o’d. I can’t take this anymore. But when I talk about it, display any angst or complain I’m laughed at and criticized.

Well let me ask YOU! If this was your house and this was happening to the family you loved and the home you respected. What would you do? Just sit in your arm-chair and let it happen or get off your duff and do something about it. Oh, you might say house managers are all the same no sense getting all excited . Things will eventually be ok. Well that might eventually be so, but what does that say about your self respect or for your house and your family for that matter! I dare say one could accuse you of being derelict as a husband and a father.

Not this American. You disrespect my house and my family you are out on your ears. So come November 6th 2012 what are you going to do. Sit at home in your apathetic loving arm-chair and continue to let the disrespect continue in OUR House or will you at least grow a little courage and say something. I for one am tired of the stink in the kitchen.

And this is a Christian American Opinion,

Please  don’t be in dereliction of your citizen’s duty, vote anti-socialist!
