Palin For VP

Today Sen. McCain announced Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin as his choice for VP in the upcoming election. Prior to the announcement, I was really concerned about his choice.

You see, there is no way I can support BHO, The Anointed One, much less Joe Biden. Neither one of them understands America or her foundations. How can they govern that they intend to destroy? Just for starters, neither one has the support of orthodox Christians. Biden is sideways with his Roman Catholic leadership over abortion & the Big O is in the same boat with the rest of us.

INMNSHO McCain is not much better. I believe he is much better prepared to lead our nation than the Obama-nator & Biden. He has leadership experience that Obama just can not approach. But, McCain does not appear to be much a friend to liberty-minded people.

Early on, Bobby Jindal, Governor of Louisiana, was discussed as a potential running mate for McCain. Race and youth were on his side, in my opinion. Like Palin, Jindal appears to be Christian and pro-life. I am ignorant concerning most of his pro-liberty & gun-related views.

However, Palin's selection pulls a committed pro-life, pro-freedom leader into the election. Palin's courage to stand up for the unborn was demonstrated quite personally when she chose to bear full-term her Downs Syndrome infant. THAT had to be a tough decision. Personally.

I find it refreshing to have her as part of the choice this November.

God Bless Ya'll !

SHARING THE PIE - NOT WHAT OUR COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED ON

H/T: Home On The Range

Brigid has much to say about BHO and his "sharing the pie" socialism. Just whose pie is he going to share?

The American political system was not based on "sharing the pie". It was based on a moral principal that defined what made America great; on the principal of man's inalienable right to his own life - meaning, the principal that man has the right to exist for his own sake. Not sacrificing himself or his or her family to others nor sacrificing others to himself. Social interactions are not done by handouts but by trading, men dealing with others as traders, by voluntary choices to mutual benefit.

~~~

What this "change" appears to me to be is a social system based on the "nanny state", an altruist society, with it's code of self sacrifice, rather than the building of individual wealth, the antithesis of capitalism. It is socialism, which, in all it's mutated forms, fascism, Nazism, Communism, treats us as a sacrificial animal to be plundered for the benefit of the group, the tribe, the state.

Read it all for yourself.

Standing on the X

H/T: Xavier Thoughts

Xavier has some very interesting thoughts, and the experience to back them up!, concerning our mindset and safety. Take a look!

Here:

The good guys don't always come out ahead.

And Here:

There are reasons why a grammar school dropout who cannot multiply 26 by 4 is able to outwit and victimize a person who is of demonstrably higher intelligence and social proficiency.

Culture Wars : What Islam Isn't

H/T: Virtue OnLine

If Dr. Peter Hammond's conclusions are valid, then we all need to rethink our approach to this particular "religion." Here's a sample:

Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system.Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components.

Read it all. Read it carefully. If facts disturb you (courtesy of the US CIA) then don't bother reading it at all.

God Bless Ya'll !

2-party system: No choice but evil

Alan Keyes, a commentator for World Net Daily, has got it in my opinion.

I'll be the first to admit that this piece is not an easy read. But it is worth reading!

In our case, the premises of aristocratic despotism . . . are replacing those of democratic liberty . . .

~~~

Of all the issues confronting our country today, the assertion of so-called "abortion rights" most clearly epitomizes the nation's departure from moral principle.

~~~

The family thus exemplifies the natural first principle of just government.

~~~

Freed from the natural sense of obligation, the manifestations of human power may take the path of least resistance, the path that leads to the subjection of those whose weakness marks them for domination.

~~~

Because the contemporary debate over the institution of marriage takes place in the context of the push forcibly to legitimize homosexual behavior, the more fundamental issue of natural right that is at stake is never explicitly addressed. Is the paradigm of natural right represented by the procreational family still the basis for the American understanding of just government? Does nature have any authority in establishing the obligations human beings have toward one another, or is society the incidental result of the interplay of human choice and relative power? The advocates of homosexual marriage offer a concept of family that is based on human choice, without reference to any natural obligation. But once the element of natural obligation has been discarded, what limits the power of choice when confronted with the demands of those who have no power?

~~~

. . . the notion that accident establishes right leads to chaos; that conflict establishes right leads to perpetual war; that greater power establishes right leads to perpetual tyranny.

~~~

Once the ideologies of dehumanizing science (e.g., the dogma of evolution) and unfettered human will have extinguished this belief from their consciousness, the democratic age will end.

Please read it carefully and completely.

God Bless Ya'll !

The Mississippi Squirrel Revival

H/T: Xavier Thoughts

Xavier has performed a great favor for this not-so-humble reader of his blog!

When I first heard this song, I was driving a company car from Houston to Houma (southern Louisiana) where the roads are narrow two-laners following the bayou from town to town. Keep in mind that bayou thing. It's important.

I had tuned around for a local station that played contemporary (early '80s) Christian or even classic country and settled on something on the AM band that was strong and not too noisy.

I found the station during the first third, or so, of this song and wasn't really aware of the artist, the title or even the genre of the station. However, I was aware of the twisting road and bayou and the remainder of my environment. In other words, when the artist got to the really good part of the song I was totally unprepared for its impact.

At the time, I had been a Christian about ten years or so and was part of the charismatic "movement" that had revitalized our Episcopalian congregation, Church of the Redeemer in Houston. I thought I knew all about the gifts, and manifestations, of the Holy Spirit but this song introduced me to an entirely new form of "worship."

The "holy" gift of laughter entered me with such power and force that I began having trouble steering the car between the white lines. Never mind the yellow line in the middle! Remember the bayou? If I missed the white line, the bayou was next!

Anyone behind me, fortunately there was no on-coming traffic, would have thought I had that crazed squirrel in my car running laps around my shorts!

Enjoy that vision, if you will, and definitely enjoy this song!

God Bless Ya'll !
