First Things First

There are at least three issues that are of paramount importance to America’s resurgence. President Trump is on point so far in his presidency on key issues that are vital to this renewal.  However, only one of the top three has been positively addressed, one has been negatively addressed, and the other has not been addressed at all.

Steps have been taken to release the stranglehold of Obamacare, to hasten infrastructure projects, to secure our borders, to get a handle on immigration, and to stem corruption in Washington resulting from former administration officials turned lobbyists.  New regulations pushed by the former administration have been halted, the United States has withdrawn from the entanglement of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a freeze has been placed on federal hiring, and common sense job creation moves have been made in reducing regulatory burdens and giving a go ahead for major pipeline construction.  Serious plans also have been made to destroy the scourge of ISIS.

A popular saying during Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign was, “It’s the economy, stupid.”  This statement was an attempt to make the point that the economy was the main issue concerning America.  This was wrong then as it is now.  The economy and all other issues are secondary to moral issues.  To put it bluntly, moral issues are sin issues.  Like it or not, God is real and He has real issues with moral issues.  This is because He is sinless, pure, and holy; and since He made us in His image, He wants us to be sinless, pure, and holy for His glory and for our benefit.  While we all fall very short of this ideal, He will cleanse us through the sacrificed blood of Jesus and empower us by the Holy Spirit if we truly want Him to do this.

The three main moral issues that concern our nation are abortion, sexual deviancy, and pornography, which are related.  President Trump has partially corrected our course as a nation on the killing of unborn babies by reinstating a policy that former president Obama had overturned.  This is called the Mexico City Policy, which restricts US funding for abortions.

At this point, sexual deviancy has been upheld by President Trump.  He has left in place an order that requires federal contractors to hire homosexuals and transsexuals, regardless of the employers’ beliefs on such behavior and God’s orders on this matter, which include the following from the book of Romans, chapter 1:

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

As God has stated, He has made Himself clear on this matter as to what our behavior should be, and He has set the standards of what is good and what is bad.  We can choose to defy Him, but in the end we will see that such a choice is great folly.  We can choose to obey Him, and in the end see the great wisdom in this choice.

The president has yet to make a stand against the epidemic of pornography, which is a catalyst for the before mentioned issues of abortion and sexual deviancy; and other crimes such as pedophilia, rape, battery, and murder.  Its availability and promotion by many, including those with great influence such as business owners and corporations, is devastating to individuals, families, and the nation.

Proverbs 14:34 tells us, “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin condemns any people.”  Hosea 4:6, “my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.”  Hosea 4:14, “a people without understanding will come to ruin.”  We may guard our borders, increase our wealth, and build our infrastructure, but “Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain.  Unless the LORD watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.” (Psalm 127:1)  A nation of fools will not last.  May we as a nation open our eyes to the deception of the main stream media, the enemy, and our own flesh; and act upon what is true.  May we speak up for our children as Proverbs 31:8 says, “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves”.

West and East

West and East are more than directions.  They are mind-sets that have their origins in the times when there was war in heaven and when the earth was new.  The terms West and East are synonymous with life and death, righteousness and evil, freedom and bondage, and love and hate.

“Then war broke out in heaven.  Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back.  But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven.  The great dragon was hurled down-that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray.  He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.”  (Revelation 12:7-9)

This catastrophic event set the stage for everyone on earth experiencing happiness, unhappiness, joy, sorrow, pleasure, pain, and other circumstances that we find ourselves in as we walk through the minefield of this life.  The war that began in heaven continues to rage around us, but much like the blowing wind that we cannot see, we are equipped only to see and experience the effects.

God gave the ability to choose to the first man and woman, Adam and Eve, and in an instance of being tempted by the ancient serpent, they chose to disobey God.  Through this act of disobedience Adam involved all of mankind in the war that began in heaven.  Common to any war there is death, dismemberment, and destruction.  This war is no different.  The life of ease that Adam and Eve experienced in the Garden of Eden where their Creator placed them was traded for a life of hard work, pain, and suffering. (Genesis 2 and 3)

The scriptures of the Bible contain the history of the love of God for mankind and how He made a way for us to be on His winning side of the war.  This way is only through His son, Jesus Christ.  John 3:16 tells us, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”  Even those who have not read or heard of Jesus are without excuse.  In Romans 2:12-16 we are told, “For as many who have sinned without law will also perish without law, and as many as have sinned in the law will be judged by the law (for not the hearers of the law are just in the sight of God, but the doers of the law will be justified; for when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the law, are a law to themselves, who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing them) in the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel.”

The Western mind-set is based upon the teachings of Jesus Christ; more specifically, His first and second greatest commandments.  Jesus said, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’  This is the first and great commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’  On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 22:37-40)  Although much of Western civilization has strayed from this teaching in many ways in the past and present, it is still the basis of our laws and thoughts.  Our way of life is founded upon Jesus Christ who is God, the only true god that became a sinless man to pay the price of death for our sins so that if we repent of our sins and believe in this good news we will have everlasting life.  This belief places value on faith in God’s Word, on life, on family, on mercy, on justice, on the weak, on every person, and on the country God has given us to live in.

Eastern thought is very different from and is opposed to Western thought.  Most of the world is inclined to its ideas, and many in the West that are known as Liberals, Progressives, Socialists, Leftists, or Communists are given to this thinking.  It is rooted in the irrational thought and intent that led to the rebellion in heaven.  The propensity to rebel is in everyone, and when it is given in to, it is called sin.  Those of the West know, or at least are influenced by, the truth that power to overcome sin is found in Jesus Christ.  Those of the East reject this power, resulting in false beliefs and deception.  In short, Western thought is based on truth, while Eastern thought is based on lies.  The lies are varied, such as the idea that there is no God; the idea that there are many Gods; the idea that each person comes to God in his own way; and the idea that we are all God or will become God.  There is also the lie that there is one God, but there is no Saviour, and that we must be saved by our own works.

One form of Eastern thought leads to hatred of those whose thinking is in opposition to their own, specifically the Islamic teaching to kill or enslave such people.  The difference between the Western way of promoting beliefs through love and this mind-set of hate is striking.  Their hatred is manifested in their treatment of women and children, their ruthlessness, their disregard for life, and their cowardice that leads them to harm the innocent, hide their faces, and send women and children on suicide missions to kill others.

This same spirit of hate, destruction, and cowardice is evident in riots and senseless shootings that have become common occurrences.  It is also apparent in the maltreatment of those who stand firm in truth concerning male and female, marriage, and the lives of babies.  There is a similarity of hate, ruthlessness, and destructive behavior between Islam and the Left.

West and East cannot mix.  There is one or the other.  Each person must decide which philosophy they will follow.  The one that is based on love, truth, and common sense, or the one that is based on hate, deceit, and irrationality; the one that is on the side of the Creator, or the one that is on the side of the serpent; the one that is on the winning side, or the one that is on the losing side, the one that is true, or the one that is a lie.  God tells us in the Bible, specifically in the book of Revelation, how it turns out.

Moral Issues First

Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the LORD guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.  (Psalm 127:1)

It is not the economy, national defense, the environment, healthcare, affordable energy, or any other issue that needs to be addressed until we get the moral issues corrected.  The stability and wholesomeness of America hinges on a proper relationship with the One who establishes and tears down nations.

In Zephaniah 3:1-7, the LORD tells us: “Woe to her who is rebellious and polluted, to the oppressing city! She has not obeyed His voice, she has not received correction; she has not trusted in the LORD, she has not drawn near to her God.  Her princes in her midst are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves that leave not a bone till morning.  Her prophets are insolent, treacherous people; her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law.  The LORD is righteous in her midst, He will do no unrighteousness.  Every morning He brings His justice to light; He never fails, but the unjust knows no shame.  “I have cut off nations, their fortresses are devastated; I have made their streets desolate, with none passing by.  Their cities are destroyed; there is no one, no inhabitant.  I said, ‘Surely you will fear Me, you will receive instruction’- so that her dwelling would not be cut off, despite everything for which I punished her.  But they rose early and corrupted all their deeds.” ”

There can be no compromise or apology for Christianity in America.  Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6)  While we are not violent or unkind toward those who worship false gods, we must promote truth and not consider their beliefs equal to the truth found only in Christianity.  John 2:22: “Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ?  He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.”  False religious organizations must not be allowed tax exemption or any accommodations that promote their lies.  Such benefits should apply only to Christianity.  If our nation is to be protected, made prosperous, and otherwise be blessed by the one true God, then we must be obedient to Him and acknowledge that He alone is God.

Those of us who call ourselves Christians can also be guilty of worshipping false gods.  We can convince ourselves that God is tolerant of our “little” sins (profanity, lust, lies, gossip, or whatever else that He tells us is sin).  Making up our own god that judges us how we want to be judged is a sin called idolatry, just like bowing or praying to a statue.  Certainly God is full of forgiveness and mercy, but He also loves justice and will not be compromised.  Daniel 9:9 tells us, “To the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness, though we have rebelled against Him.”  Psalm 33:5 says, “He loves righteousness and justice”.    There are rewards and consequences for our choices and behavior.  He tells us in Galatians 6:7, “Don’t be deceived: God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows he will also reap.”  Isaiah 66:2: “This is the one I esteem: he who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at My word.”  Psalm 33:12: “Blessed is the nation whose god is the LORD.”  The results of our choices and behavior will be manifested in our short life in this world and forever in the next, and the results of our collective choices and behavior in America are revealed in the declining prosperity and protection that we formerly enjoyed.

A return to a blessed and secure America requires the right choice.  Deuteronomy 30:19: “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live”.  Our descendants have no choice in what kind of country we leave them, but our choices now affect not only us but also our children and grandchildren.

The United States Constitution was based on the truth of God’s Word found in the scriptures of the Holy Bible.  The freedom of religion mentioned in the First Amendment to the Constitution applies only to Christianity.  This is obvious from the writings of the framers of the Constitution.  Regardless of the Constitution and its framers, truth cannot be compromised.  Truth comes from one source, and that source is the Creator of the universe and all that is therein.  We would do well as individuals and as a nation to learn what pleases Him by reading the scriptures and praying to Him, and by obeying Him.  Romans 12:2, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”  Philippians 4:19, “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

Congress, U. S. House Judiciary Committee, 1854
Had the people, during the Revolution, had a suspicion of any attempt to war against Christianity, that Revolution would have been strangled in its cradle… In this age, there can be no substitute for Christianity… That was the religion of the founders of the republic and they expected it to remain the religion of their descendants.

A Lawless America

America is becoming a lawless land.  The downward spiral began at the top, as it always does, with the leadership of government and the human leadership in the church.  This descent began many years ago in subtle, deceptive ways.  The Federal Reserve was established; the tax code was changed to prevent non-profit organizations from being involved politically, so pastors and churches would keep silent for fear of man and fear of lost revenue; official prayers in public schools were outlawed; the war on poverty was declared; the dismemberment and murder of unborn babies was permitted; the Ten Commandments were outlawed in public schools; and in defiance of logic, same sex “marriage” is now promoted.

The Lord Jesus Christ established laws in the beginning (John 1:1-3).  He has set the standards on which America and other lands have based their laws.  Our trouble began when we turned away from God’s laws which are found in the scriptures of the Holy Bible, and when we turned away from the Constitution which is based on those same scriptures.  We are witnessing the results in the chaos and the crime that is manifesting across the country.

The establishment of the Federal Reserve marked one of the first major steps away from the rule of law toward the rule of lawlessness.  Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution authorizes Congress to coin money and regulate the value thereof.  With an unlawful act, Congress ceded this power away from itself to a private group known as the Federal Reserve.  What reason could there be, other than a lust for more riches and power, for a group of men who weren’t satisfied with the wealth that they already possessed, to seek control of the people’s wealth?  God tells us in 1Timothy 6:9-10, “But those who want to be rich fall into temptation, a trap, and many foolish and harmful desires, which plunge people into ruin and destruction.  For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, and by craving it, some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pains.”  The Federal Reserve has plunged many into ruin, destruction, and untold negative consequences for generations.

The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was supposed to give stability to America’s economy.  However, only 16 years later on October 29, 1929, the Great Depression began affecting not only the United States, but also the world.  The depression continued into the 1940s, revealing to no avail the fallacy of the Federal Reserve and its feigned attempts to be an economic stabilizer.  By tampering with a natural market that can only correct itself through supply and demand, Congress and the Federal Reserve cabal proliferated poverty throughout the republic and the world.  Then the “progressives” did what they commonly do.  Instead of trashing the idea of a central banking system which obviously destabilized, or rather wrecked the economy, they offered solutions to the crises that they created.  With the nation desperate for relief, whatever hope offered was accepted.

The Franklin Roosevelt administration and other progressives offered an answer to the self-inflicted crises: the “New Deal” plan.  Under this plan, Congress allowed funding for the creation and operation of largely autonomous government agencies such as the Social Security Administration, the Federal Housing Administration, the Farm Credit Administration, the Works Progress Administration, and many others.  The New Deal greatly expanded the reach and power of the federal government, usurped state authority, and is still unconstitutionally taking vast amounts of the money of Americans.  Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution covers the limit of authority of the federal government, and these agencies do not fall within this limit.

https://www.britannica.com/list/7-alphabet-soup-agencies-that-stuck-around

http://www.wallbuilders.com/libissuesarticles.asp?id=36438

Typical of liberals, or progressives, it is never enough.  In 1964 President Lyndon Johnson announced the “Great Society” and the “War on Poverty”, which led to even more unconstitutional spending of Americans’ money in addition to the cost of the New Deal.  Johnson and Congress bypassed the Constitution and usurped state authority by funneling tax dollars into such unauthorized areas as food stamps, schools, and Social Security.

http://www.weeklystandard.com/a-not-so-great-society/article/2001972

Ten years before the declaration of war on poverty, Johnson and Congress smoothed the path before them by curtailing opposition from large segments of the population that would be most likely to balk at their usurpation of power.  The Johnson Amendment declared that tax exempt organizations such as churches could no longer endorse candidates for government office and remain tax exempt.  Church pastors and ministers spend much time studying and reflecting on issues relevant to the well-being of their congregations.  Therefore this threat of lost revenue has ever since, to a great extent, closed off information to a vast number of common sense voters who would otherwise be more informed on important matters affecting their lives and the lives of generations to come.

http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/constitution/item/24030-trump-repeal-johnson-amendment-that-muzzles-pastors

In 1962, two years before Johnson’s “Great Society” and “War on Poverty”, the Supreme Court led the nation in a rejection of God’s future blessings upon it in the Engel v. Vitale case.  In it, the court ruled that a simple prayer that acknowledged dependence upon almighty God and asked for His blessings was not to be promoted by public schools.  America’s founding document, the Declaration of Independence, acknowledges the Creator and that our rights come from Him, yet the Court ruled that He won’t be prayed to in our schools in any sanctioned fashion.  This is an obvious disconnect between the Court and the country’s foundation.  For that matter, the disconnect runs through all three branches of our government in their erroneous interpretation of the religious clause of the First Amendment.  If the whole counsel of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and writings of the Founders are taken, this clause obviously means to keep the government out of the church and applies only to Christianity.

https://www.britannica.com/event/Engel-v-Vitale

According to the Declaration of Independence, one of the reasons governments are instituted is to protect life.  In the Supreme Court case of Roe v. Wade in 1973, the most innocent and defenseless sector of the public lost this protection.  Since the ruling in this case, our nation is responsible for an estimated amount of over 50 million infant deaths, and that number continues to grow while the criminals with the reins of government are allowed to keep their hold.

God’s ten basic rules to maintain societal and individual well-being were outlawed by the Supreme Court in 1980, accelerating lawlessness through elimination of any standard of right and wrong.  In Stone v. Graham, one point of argument for the majority was that the effect of posting copies of the Ten Commandments would “be to induce the schoolchildren to read, meditate upon, perhaps to venerate and obey, the Commandments.”  The numerous accounts of school shootings, illicit teacher/student relationships, discipline problems, sub-par education and poor grades since the law “experts” overruled God are confirmation of the value of the Ten Commandments in teaching right from wrong.

The wealth of the people is taken from them in excess taxes and is wasted in many unconstitutional ways: In 2008 George W. Bush and Congress illegally spent nearly a trillion of the citizens’ dollars to save financial institutions from failure.  In 2009 Congress and Barack Obama unlawfully spent nearly a trillion dollars of American’s money to supposedly stimulate the economy.  In 2010 Obama and Congress took over the nation’s health care by passing the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).  The cost of this unlawful act is incalculable due to subsidies, varied premium increases, and other related costs affecting Americans.

Since the Federal Reserve, the New Deal, the Johnson Amendment, Engel v. Vitale, the War on Poverty, Roe v. Wade, and Stone v. Graham, the Constitution has become an optional guideline to liberals and many supposedly conservatives.  They usually only refer to it when it is needed to promote an agenda, and then often out of context.  For instance, freedom of speech as in the First Amendment is repeatedly cited to condone behavior such as the production of pornography, which is not speech at all, but is an activity that is extremely damaging to society; and the order to the president in Article 2, Section 4 of the Constitution to faithfully execute the laws has been disobeyed by him in many ways, including failing to enforce immigration laws and marriage laws.  However, behavior that is in keeping with the Constitution but is contrary to the agenda of the liberal left is regarded by them as unacceptable and wrongly judged by them as unconstitutional.  Examples include the arrest of a clerk that refused to issue a marriage license to a same sex couple, and fines levied against others that declined to participate in same sex “weddings”; other examples include preventing states from enforcing immigration laws, and the impeding of states’ attempts to prevent voter fraud.

The Obama administration, Congress, and the Supreme Court have taken disregard of the Constitution to a whole new level: the passage of Obamacare; the passage of budgets that fund Planned Parenthood, an organization that has been proven to kill babies and sell their body parts; the allowance of millions of illegal aliens to come into and remain in the country; the placement of economy destroying restrictions on businesses within the energy sector and businesses in general; the allowance of homosexual “marriage”; the allowance of homosexuals and transvestites in the military; the forcing of the acceptance of homosexual behavior; the allowance of anyone to use the public bathroom, shower, or changing room of their choice, regardless of their sex; and the allowance of adherents to Islam, that are known to be enemies of the United States, to enter and remain in the country unchecked.  These are only a few of the unlawful acts of the federal government.

The unlawfulness that began with ignoring the Constitution through the establishment of the Federal Reserve, taking power from the people by giving control of their money and therefore control of the country to a few individuals with designs for the country contrary to God and the Constitution, has now spread like an epidemic through the land.  It is manifesting in cities with people rioting simply because of the enforcement of law.  Those at the highest levels of government and their loyal media incite these riots, calling them protests, which are based on false assumptions of racism, and proclaim erroneous information in an attempt to justify the actions of the rioters.  Unlawfulness leads to chaos.

More rights will fall if the left is not stopped.  The camel’s head got in the tent, the mile was taken when given an inch, and so we near the end of the ride down the slippery slope to communism in America and the world.  The federal financial infringement has now moved into the family, religious, and morality realm.  When money is allowed to be stolen from the people, the people’s focus on freedom and their ability to fight for it is sapped.  Many who would have the country return to its righteous and constitutional roots are preoccupied with providing for their families and lack the time to be involved in the fight for freedom.  Any extra time they might have for such activity is taken up earning enough to turn over to the bloated federal government so it can be wasted in about as many ways as can be imagined in the unnecessary and unconstitutional agencies concocted under the New Deal and the War on Poverty, and all the other unconstitutional expenditures.  We have a choice.  We can ignore what is going on or we can do our best to stop it.

 

 

Hillary Clinton’s Indictment of the Democratic Party

Hillary Clinton’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention was an indictment against the Democratic Party.  Listing the problems of our nation, she failed to acknowledge that the problems are the result of eight years of a Democratic administration.  Corruption in Washington is rampant in both political parties, but to continue the same administration under a new name is to further relinquish our freedom, protection, prosperity, and Christian-American way of life.

Hillary began her speech by mentioning the Founder’s common purpose.  The Founders would be appalled that someone like Hillary Clinton is in the running for president, much like they would be appalled at the current administration.  Their common purpose was freedom and self-government, not a socialist government that the Democratic Party is pushing.

She next stated that powerful forces are threatening to pull us apart.  This is true.  The current administration, which she is part of, is tearing America apart in every way conceivable.  It pits race against race, promotes immoral sexual behavior, and endangers women and young girls by inviting men into women’s bathrooms, showers, and changing rooms.  The foundation of a stable and prosperous society, which is Christianity and the family, is continuously and increasingly undermined by this administration through its diversity and tolerance policies.  These policies quash freedom of religion and speech by silencing and punishing negativity toward the redefining of marriage, family, and gender.

Children are literally being pulled apart by those of Hillary’s and Obama’s ilk who desire to have unborn children torn to pieces and discarded in the name of freedom of choice.  While the child has no freedom of choice in being conceived, at least one of the two involved in the child’s conception was free to choose as to whether to engage in the act that resulted in a new soul.  The freedom of choice in such a matter should begin and end here, and not be misconstrued as license to murder.

Hillary said that the bonds of trust and respect are fraying.  They certainly are because her and most others in Washington have proven that they cannot be trusted and are not worthy of respect.  Benghazi; Fast and Furious; carelessness with confidential emails; open borders and open bathrooms; $400 million and a nuclear deal with our enemy Iran; homosexuals and transvestites normalized, allowed in the military, and running the military; and a host of other issues is why.

The former first lady stated in her speech that we won’t build a wall but we will build an economy.  Common sense would indicate that flooding the country with illegal immigrants, spending more than is available, and increasing an already oppressive tax burden would not be conducive to building but rather to destroying an economy.

She said that we will build a path to citizenship, not ban a religion, and will fight terrorism.  Building a shortcut path to citizenship and allowing a religion that promotes killing or enslaving those who don’t convert and is the main source of terrorism runs counter to fighting terrorism.  There is already a path to citizenship in our laws and for obvious reasons it needs to be made more stringent, especially for those from Muslim nations.

She said that there is too much inequality in America.  That is true where justice is concerned.  Most people who commit the crimes that she, Obama, and many others in Washington have would be in prison or executed.

The former First Lady turned potential Commander in Chief touted the powerfulness of our military.  Well, it was much more powerful before this administration emasculated it by allowing open homosexuality, terrorists, and other deviants into the ranks; and loosened its standards to accommodate women into combat units.

Hillary spoke of enduring values, freedom, equality, justice, and opportunity.  Yes, America had these once upon a time, but she, Obama, and many others in Washington have done their best to get rid of them.

She praised police officers, firefighters, doctors, and nurses.  She, the president, and others like them have caused harm and death, and continue to endanger those in these professions and others by inciting racial tension, violence, and allowing the entrance of criminals and terrorists into the country.

She stated that the founders fought a revolution so America would never have one person with all the power.  Yes.  It’s called the three branches of government and checks and balances, which we no longer use much.  The president simply bypasses Congress and issues edicts while our representatives stand by, watch, and allocate our tax dollars to fund the implementation of the edicts.  The Supreme Court bypasses Congress and passes legislation with five out of nine people, the executive branch enforces the court’s and its own illegitimate laws, and most of the members of supposedly the most powerful branch of government allow it and finance it while they enjoy their perks and paychecks.  The founders did fight, die, and made great sacrifices to give us a representative form of government, one that Hillary, Obama, and others like them may pretend to honor but vigorously undermine.

She said that children should be able to attend good schools no matter their zip code.  It is those of her mindset that have ruined the education of our country by their unconstitutional federal interference in the educational system.  From revising history to teaching immorality, our taxes have been used to dumb down our nation so that we will go along with whatever the “experts” in government tell us.

She mentioned her desire for a country where families are strong and communities are safe.  She and her party have worked diligently to weaken the family through penalizing marriage with taxes, through promoting homosexual “marriage”, through protecting pornography, and in countless other ways.  Their idea of keeping communities safe is by turning loose hundreds of illegal alien criminals, allowing anyone to cross the country’s borders, and bringing in thousands of people from enemy countries with no way to check their background.

Hillary spoke of helping working people get ahead and stay ahead.  She said that the economy isn’t working as it should, but that it is so much stronger than when Obama took office.  If the economy isn’t working as it should after eight years of Obama and Congress giving him anything he wants, then a continuation of the same policies under Hillary Clinton will not set it in order. She and those of her party make it extremely difficult for working people to even make ends meet, much less get ahead and stay ahead.  Their oppressive taxation and regulations stifle the prosperity of Americans and dampen the economy, while the Federal Reserve manipulates the money supply and devalues the hard earned wages through inflation.

She said that companies should share profits with their workers, not pad executive bonuses.  That would be nice for the employees, but what business does the government have in telling companies what to do with their money?  Rather, why doesn’t the federal government stop the armed robbery of the workers through excessive taxation and inflation, and stop greasing the palms of politicians, their pals, and our enemies with the sweat of working Americans.

She stated that she and the current administration put a lid on Iran’s nuclear program.  As if we can trust our enemy, sanctions have been lifted and $100 billion in assets have been released to Iran because they pretend that they will stop making nuclear weapons.  Another $400 million in currency was recently handed to Iran coinciding with the release of hostages.  Apparently this administration’s idea of putting a lid on a nuclear program is by funding it.

Hillary said that we will stand up against mean and divisive rhetoric wherever it comes from.  This must mean according to who the rhetoric is directed toward and however they determine mean and divisive.  If the rhetoric is supporting the principles and ideals that made America the freest, strongest, most prosperous, and most protected nation on earth, then it is considered by the Hillary and Obama bunch to be mean and divisive.  Their idea of not being mean and divisive is to embrace immorality, the killing of babies, the over-running of our country by illegal entrants, the giving of our income to the federal government for them to waste as they please, the handing over of our country to our enemies, and the silencing of those who object to this.

It is discouraging to know that out of such a large field of what appeared to be qualified candidates, we are left with two undesirable nominees for the presidency of the United States.  These are our choices, so instead of voting for the candidates, we should think of it as voting for the party platforms that they represent, and these platforms represent two very different ideals.
