Bad news is, America is on its deathbed and life support has been unplugged. Good news? Is there any? Well, God is still God. No matter how bad things are, God is, and always will be, sovereign. Without sounding too “churchy,” though, let’s deal with the death blow that was dealt to freedom loving people everywhere.
America, as we have known it, died yesterday. The public crossed a line politically and morally that I fear we will never be able to return from. That is not an absolute statement, merely a personal fear. I hope that this atrocity can be rectified and America saved. However, in a battle between good and evil, evil triumphed yesterday. As I watched the returns come in, I was shocked, sickened, and livid. I was frozen in disbelief. How could this happen?
How is it possible to re-elect someone with the beliefs and record of this guy?! We know he is anti-American and anti-capitalist. We know he does not believe we are a Christian nation, nor does he believe America is exceptional. We know that he studied, and uses, the tactics of Saul Alinsky, who dedicated such tactics to Lucifer. We watched him ignore the economy and force socialized medicine down our throats 4 years ago. We know he wants to limit our energy capabilities and go the way of bankrupt Spain by forcing “green” energy. We know he has ties to communists and homegrown terrorists who want to destroy capitalism. We know he has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. We know he has alienated our closest ally (Israel) and made us a joke to our enemies. We know that he told Russia’s Medvedev to tell Vladmir Putin to be patient with him until after his re-election . .. then he’ll have all kinds of “flexibility” (and nobody wants to question that?!) We know that he did nothing, and is complicit, in the murders of our Libyan ambassador and the former Navy Seals with him in Benghazi. We know he doesn’t care about anything other than himself and his agenda of “fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” We know these things, yet apparently, many people still voted for him.
Is there anything we can count on in another 4 years of this anti-American fool? You bet – we know we’ll get this:
- More lies
- Hard left, Marxist ideology and alienating the American people
- Ignoring and breaking American law, ignoring our Constitution
- Freedoms attacked
- Higher taxes
- Higher medical costs, doctor shortage and worse care (due to Obamacare)
- Tax payer funded abortions
- A continued worsening of the private sector as small businesses cannot hire anymore and many will probably have to close down
- We will, probably, fly right over the “fiscal cliff” due to his irresponsibility
- Growing record number of those on welfare
- Growing national debt
- We’ll have a shrinking middle class and growing poverty class and unemployment
- We’ll continue to have insecure borders
- Our military will be weakened, therefore, making us less secure
- He’ll have nothing holding him back – no more elections, no need to worry about those pesky voters – and he’ll probably ram a bunch more crap through that will “fundamentally transform” us into something we do not want to be.
Man, I hope I am wrong, but given the past 4 years (and his own words and actions), this is what’s coming, America. It is not good. Our freedoms are at stake. Our very way of life is at stake and the Obama voters have placed all of our well being in the hands of a mindless, heartless monstrosity of government. Reuters even wrote a piece on Obama being poised to continue expanding government’s reach. Look, people, not only is this un-American and detrimental, we cannot afford it! (and just think, if you’re an Obama voter, all of this is what you voted for)
GOVERNMENT IS NEVER THE ANSWER! Government is the problem. The familiar words from Ronald Reagan have never rang more true.
So, near the top, I declared that evil won yesterday. Am I saying that Obama is evil? Not directly, but yes, I personally believe he is. Why? As for him, I say that because he is a liar, he is a deceiver, he seeks to tear us down, and is an enemy of the American way of life. That is not my point here, though. What do I mean by saying that evil won? As you have heard me say on the podcasts and written on the blogs, this was a crucial election that will determine our direction. We live or die. What we saw yesterday was the winning of an attitude that revels in chaos, deception, lies, mis-representation, irresponsibility, a complete lack of personal accountability or personal responsibility and completely devoid of God or Godly principles. Along with that, did you notice that some states voted to legalize recreational marijuana and gay marriage. These things go completely contrary to our American ideals and the Biblical principles on which we were founded!
Do you remember this time 4 years ago when the Canadians and Europeans were warning us to turn around from the path we were on? When Obama ignored the economy to force socialized healthcare through, they saw it and warned us that it does not work . . . that we should not go down that road. We failed to listen. Again, we fail to listen. Just recently, prior to the election, we got another warning from Canadians regarding gay marriage and how it erodes society.
All of this combined tells me that the heart of America has changed. I don’t even recognize it anymore. We have turned from God, from American ideals, from responsibility, and creativity to be mindless, begging cowards and followers who only want a couple of handouts while we become slaves to a socialist government. Evil. The spirit in that is evil. Not good and not American. How can this ever change? It can’t and won’t unless the heart of the people change and that will never happen apart from God. We need spiritual revival.
We are in a battle. Ultimately, it’s a spiritual battle. It is the timeless battle of good and evil. Clearly, many people in this country are on the side of evil, but they don’t recognize it. Many of us, though not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, are on the side of good and want to see Truth triumph. So, what now?
I don’t know.
I wish I had the answer. I wish I had any answer.
What I do know is now is not the time to lie down. The battle rages on and we must continue to stand for Truth, declare Truth and point out right and wrong. We must defend and teach what is right and shun what is evil. As tired and frustrated as many of us probably are, we must pick up and press on. I choose not to be silent. I choose to continue standing and speaking for Truth. I will not compromise my principles, and I hope you will not either.
I must say, one thing I heard in Romney’s concession speech was about putting partisan politics aside, reaching across the aisle and working together. Let me be the first to say that, if the left’s idea of us working together means we abandon our principles and go along with all of their anti-American crap, no deal! If we have to compromise truth and principles, it is not worth it. If their agenda continues on the path to ruin American, I expect the House to do all it can to stand in the way. I know this is horrible, but if that means 2- 4 years of gridlock, so be it, as long as it prevents America from turning into something else. We simply cannot sacrifice our principles or freedom.
Now that that “side note” is out of the way, please continue to stand firm. Don’t just stand in your own thoughts or “wisdom.” Stand in Biblical Truth. Remember, though this sucks and things will be very hard down the road, God will protect and provide for those of us who abide in Him. He is bigger than this. Stand close to Him and let’s stand together, Patriots!
Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You; and in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, until these calamities have passed by. – Psalm 57:1
. . . for the Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. You shall walk after the Lord your God and fear Him, and keep His commandments and obey His voice; you shall serve Him and hold fast to Him. – Deut. 13:3-4
Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is in the Lord. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and will not fear when heat comes; but its leaf will be green, and will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit. – Jer. 17:7-8

Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country. – Samuel Adams
Thank you for your patience as I’ve had a few days of inactivity. After last week’s surprise, I took a couple of days to rest and gather some thoughts leading up to the election. A couple of days quickly turned into a week and I apologize. I began researching a couple of topics which I am not ready to write about, yet. However, I have to simply share some thoughts today.
Tomorrow is it. Tomorrow is the day when we find out if America will continue to exist or be bullied into completing a forced transition to a socialist state. Everything that we hold dear is on the line. Everything that has made this country great for 236 years is in jeopardy. For the first time in 4 years, I heard Obama say something that I agree with. It was something to the effect of this election being between two very different visions for America. You got that right! The problem is, he’s on the wrong side of every issue and his anti-American ideals are obvious. So, yes, this is an election based on 2 very different visions for America and there is only one clear choice to make for America and freedom.
Did you hear Obama over the weekend stating that voting is the best “revenge?” That is no proper view of voting! Besides that, revenge for what? Towards who? Any of you who have been with Unapologetically Right along the way know that Romney was not my guy in the primary. However, he HAS to be my guy, now. There is no other option. That being said, he made a very poignant statement in response to Obama’s completely asinine statement. While Obama is showing his anti-colonialist and community organizing sentiments, again, Romney stated that voting should be done, not for “revenge,” but for love of country.
And that’s our choice, America. One who is anti-American and divisive vs. one who, though not perfect on all issues (maybe not on any issue), but is not trying to dismantle America. One who has a closer vision of a constitutional America than the other. So, what will it be? Perhaps many of you voted early. Perhaps you are waiting to enjoy the excitement of voting on the actual election day, or maybe your state does not offer early voting. Whatever the case, if you have not yet voted, please consider what is at stake.
236 years of history that has proven to make us the strongest, most prosperous, most charitable, and most free country the world has ever known! Our personal freedoms: to live as we please, to work where we want to work, to grow our own food, to feed our neighbor, to defend ourselves, to worship how we choose, to keep more of our hard-earned money and spend it how we choose . . . the list goes on, but you get the idea. It’s all at stake. I’ve mentioned it before, but I’ll bring it up again. This boils down to one question:
Can man rule himself?
If the answer is yes, then a massive, over-reaching Marxist government is not the answer. If the answer is no, then some outside force is necessary to rule man. Let’s go with that for a moment. Let’s say the answer is “no” and an outside force is necessary to rule man. Does it make any sense at all for one, sinful man to rule over another sinful man, dictating how he must live? Absolutely not! That is called slavery. That is exactly what we are being pushed into with the Obama administration. However, I would concede that man needs help in life, not by a commie government, but by God . . . the Hand of Providence that our founders believed whole-heartedly in as they established this great land.
I can change the question just a little: can you handle making decisions on your own? Are you capable of knowing what is best for you and your family . . . if you have questions, are you capable of seeking wisdom from God to make the right decisions? Or, are you so stupid, you need a big, mindless government dictating your every move through every stage of life, making you a slave to its every whim?
I don’t even know you, but I’d venture to say you can do it without big government. We all can. You are not so stupid and helpless that you need to depend on a nanny-state. Now is the time, folks. Freedom lives or dies, right here with us. You have 3 options to do with your vote:
• Vote for the Marxist crap that we’ve had for 4 years that has ruined/is ruining us
• Vote for a “3rd party” based on your “conscience” and let your voice be heard by being different even though the candidate doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hades to win (thus splitting the vote of the potential winning party . . . aka Ron Paul voters)
• Vote for the one option we have who has a chance to win, who is, at the very least, a step in the right direction.
What will it be, America? Now is the time. We decide the fate of the nation, for now and future generations. Whether you have already voted or plan to vote tomorrow, we can all do one thing that is our best hope: pray. Pray for mercy on this nation. Pray for revival and for a preservation of freedom.
Now is the time.

If you have already participated in early voting, I can only hope that you have paid attention and voted for American values. If you have not, may I just remind you of a couple of things for consideration? I am, by no means, going to waste a lot of time going through the past 4 years that have built their own case against Obama and his anti-American sentiment, but I will simply refer you to more recent things. As I lay these out, ask yourself the following:
Does it matter?
Is America’s economy better than 4 years ago?
Is America safer than 4 years ago?
Does America deserve better?
With that in mind, consider these recent stories. First off, the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, Libya. We’ve covered it in our podcast and in a couple of past blog posts. Within a matter of hours, the world knew this was a terrorist attack on our embassy and people. The Obama administration blatantly lied about it, for weeks, blaming it all on a crappy video. Instead of going after the terrorists that did it, they chose to create a diversion and go after an American citizen and fuel an attack on our 1st amendment right of free speech. As details of the Benghazi atrocity continue to come out, we know now, without surprise, that the White House knew full well what was going on. It’s even likely that they watched it live, in the situation room, via a drone’s camera. Yet, they chose to do nothing about it, blamed an American, and continuously lied to the American public. (You can download and read the emails that the White House received here: Benghazi Alerts )
Forget that this administration has pretty much lied about everything the entire time they have worked at fundamentally transforming America (remember what they said was or was not in the healthcare bill, how it was rammed down our throats, how no one got to read it before it was forced on us, Fast & Furious and the cover up/Obama’s executive privilege to protect his anti-American buddy Eric Holder from prosecution, etc., etc.) I could spend all day remembering more and more lies and cover ups – some equally large, some smaller – but you get the idea. This administration is made up of pathological liars and they will do and say anything in order to stay in power to finish “fundamentally transforming” America.
So, lie after lie after lie. Cover up after cover up.
Does it matter? Does it matter that this country is more divided than ever in every possible way (race, politics, faith/religion, gender, economic status)? Does it matter that this dictator-wanna-be has no problem looking Americans in the eye and feeding them blatant lies in absolute arrogance?
Beyond the lying aspect, does it matter that the world’s communist dictators want Obama’s re-election? This should be an obvious sign of which side Obama and his cronies are on, but I don’t hear many people talking about this! Obama has been endorsed by Russia’s Putin, Venezuelan’s Chavez, and Cuba’s Castro.
America, does it matter to you? It sure as heck does to me which is why Unapologetically Right exists. It DOES matter . . . and SHOULD matter to you. We cannot continue on the path we are on and expect the debt to disappear or expect our freedoms to continue. We are at the point that it is the people’s duty to throw this government off . . . abolish what is, shrink it and return to the Constitution and the Biblical principles on which it was founded.
Does America deserve better? Let me answer that this way:
American ideals. Freedom. The fact that we are the world’s last best hope. The liberty of future generations of Americans. All of those things deserve better. However, it is the heart of the citizenry that decides who sits in office. If the American public is so disconnected with what is going on, depraved and refuses to see the truth, as much as I hate to say it, we will get what we deserve. I would like to think that we do deserve better, but if Bible-believing, Constitutional-supporting Americans fail to pray, shine the Light and turn the tide by doing what we can, we will get what we deserve. If all others who call themselves Americans but live like socialist Europeans and irresponsible freeloaders continue on, they will get what they deserve. We all will. Take a stand and vote the closest to the Bible and the Constitution. To all of you Ron Paul supporters, that means giving it up for a bit and being a team player. Please do not waste your vote on someone who doesn’t have a chance. I know you all say “vote your conscience.” Fine. Can your libertarian conscience live with the fact that you help usher in the demise of America and freedom, should Obama win due to a split GOP vote? We must all suck it up and do what is necessary to save this country . . . for everybody.
The ideal of freedom deserves better. Will we take the appropriate steps to begin our long journey back? Or is this the end of America as we know it? You decide, America. This election will decide that. I’ve made my decision and I know where I stand. We must stand for and protect that which we hold dear. I love my freedom and intend to protect it and fight for it.

Life is weird. It never seems to work out the way we hope – certainly not the way we plan. Some people seem to get all the breaks and what many perceive to be an “ideal life” seems to fall into place for them. Others are more like me. A life of struggle. A life of feeling like the square peg trying to fit in the round hole. The daily struggle to know one’s place in this world and how one can possibly do anything that matters to anybody. A persistent feeling of ineptitude and a cluelessness in conversations and relationships, always having great intentions but doing or saying something completely wrong. No matter one’s intention, it is the perceiver’s perception that forms their definition of a person, not necessarily reality. When one spends most of their time alone, thoughts of such negative perceptions are more haunting. Simply put, a life of struggle and feeling misunderstood.
Most people have an idea of where they will be at certain ages. Some people achieve that. Some people work and try, and either fall short or get completely screwed in the process, only to dust off and keep trying. Some people make stupid choices that lead to necessary detours in order to get one back to the straight and narrow. However, it gets to be a beating if we’re all honest. Often times, along the journey, one hears condemning voices that only amplify feelings and thoughts of ineptitude and unworthiness. Then we wonder how we got to such a place in life. This week, I have been listening to a song by Lincoln Brewster entitled “Real Life.” Part of the last verse says:
When I’m old and turning grey
And my boys have moved away
When it’s time for me to say, “Goodbye.”
I hope I leave a legacy
I hope that God is proud of me
I hope that I leave something good behind
While I understand the sentiment (and admittedly turn into a sap listening to this), I cannot fully understand it all. I don’t have a family/kids. I do hope I leave a legacy, but to whom? How, when I am in my late 30s and haven’t had much favor in anything, do I build a good, lasting legacy? I do hope that God is proud of me, yet when I think of the past decade, or so, I wonder what He has to be proud of in my life . . . much more exists recently than did a while ago, but still. I wonder why my life is nothing that I thought it would be at this point and wonder how I can rectify that situation and make the best of things from this point forward.
In my own life, I know the answer, which I’ll get to. First, please know that I know what it’s like to be the leader, to be in charge and take care of business. I also know what it’s like to be at the very back of the line, the very bottom rung, only to be ignored or treated like pure crap. I know what it’s like to be unable to go anywhere without someone recognizing me and wanting to talk. I also know what it’s like to be cast out like yesterday’s garbage and told that I do not matter and am worthless. I know what it’s like to have people excited to just meet me or, believe it or not, get an autograph. The other side is to be treated like I don’t exist. I know what it’s like to be able to speak, somewhat intelligibly, to audiences of various sizes, communicating Biblical truths, or sharing my testimony. I, also, know what it’s like to struggle to conjure up a decent sentence that doesn’t come out awkwardly and get misunderstood. These are all opposites and I have walked on both sides. For the record, the good side of things is in the past and I moved to the bad, having slowly made it back to where I need to be (but there’s still a lot of work to be done). What’s the defining difference that moved me from one side to the other?
Is it God’s fault that I went from the good to the bad? Absolutely not. It’s my fault. By saying the difference is God, I am not bestowing fault upon Him, but merely stating that He is at the center of the difference. Here’s what I mean: When I was younger, I felt I had a call on my life to enter ministry. I did and, though never rich, got to do a lot of good stuff, had plenty of opportunity, and felt like I was doing something at which I excelled. I was never perfect, but at least tried to abide in the Word and lead others in it. Then, when trying times hit, instead of pressing in and seeking the Lord, I blamed Him and ran the other way. It was at that point that I can officially say that life began to suck. I probably struggled with some things before, but not like when I left what I felt I had been “called” to do. Ever since that time, everything has felt like an uphill battle to find any form of favor with God or people and the negative side of things listed above has been the norm.
In recent years, I realized the problem and have sought to get back to the Lord, back into church, and looking at what I’m doing. As I just told somebody recently, God is relentless in His pursuit of us and when He calls us to something, He intends we do it . . . especially when we say “yes.” Will I end up back in ministry? I don’t know. Somehow I feel like it’s a possibility, but have no idea what or how. What I know right now, though, is that God has me in a place of waiting as He prunes the bad off of me to get me to where He needs me to be. Quite honestly, I’m sick of the pruning process, but given that it’s taking a while, you can see how hard headed I am and how far off I went. So, why in the world would I self-disclose all of this seemingly pointless stuff on a politically driven blog site?
My hope is the nutshell of my personal story can illustrate where we are as a nation.
Our founders emphatically believed that they were to come here and establish a land – under the direction of Divine Providence – to be the “shining city on a hill” as described in Matthew. They had a calling and established the greatest and most prosperous country on the planet using Biblical principles. We have, since, gotten very side-tracked and left our Creator, believing we can do it better on our own. Sometimes things are tough and very trying and we decided it’s better for us to play the role of God rather than sit back and let God be God. Our favor in the world has diminished. Our direction is wrong and goes against our founding principles. We feel lost, like we’re flailing around in the world with a poor sense of direction and purpose. Why? Because we have forsaken our founding principles. We have forsaken the God that brought us here. We have turned our back on Him and let Him know we don’t need Him or want Him.
I am telling you, with my own story, I need Him . . . we need Him. This country will not survive much longer going the direction we are going. How do we change? Can we fix it all on November 6th? No way. We can take a step in the right direction, but if we fail to return to God and our Constitution, who sits in the white house is irrelevant. Our founding principles are what has sustained us for 236 years and are the only things proven to work. We must humble ourselves and return to what works, get out of the way and let Him be God rather than a socialist government.
So, going back to the idea of legacy, what can all of us leave behind? If we return to God and our Constitution, we can leave future generations a life of freedom. A Godly heritage and freedom . . . what is better than that? The Apostle Paul summed it up pretty well in Galatians:
But then, indeed, when you did not know God, you served those which by nature are not gods. But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire against to be in bondage? – Galatians 4:8-9

I’m working on info for upcoming podcasts and more thoughts for the blog, but in the meantime, here’s another video I thought I’d share. Perhaps you have seen Dick Morris on tv or read his books. He is a conservative commentator and has some interesting things to say about the coming “taxmageddon” under Obama.
Watch this and see what you think . . . I think we need to vote these people out of office on Nov. 6th. Who’s with me?!
Yesterday, I saw this story about a bunch of fragile muslims in Cairo who got their feelings hurt because a film was made in America that supposedly depicts their savior, Muhammad, as a dirt bag. Let’s face it, folks, no matter what the subject is, sometimes the truth hurts. Sometimes commentary hurts. Sometimes it enrages. Sometimes it helps. Normal grown-ups, however, take it and move on without allowing some faceless person’s thoughts to dictate irresponsible actions. I don’t know enough right off the top of my head about Muhammad, nor have I yet seen the film in question, to be able to say if I think the film is accurate or not. It doesn’t matter. What we saw here, however, were people so fragile and hateful (though they claim to be a religion of peace, remember) that they allowed a person’s opinions and beliefs, halfway around the globe, dictate how they would react. Remember all the positive spin last spring about the Arab spring in Cairo . . . all the young people rising up and fighting for “freedom” . . . remember that steaming load of crap? Some of us said this wasn’t good from the beginning. Why? The Muslim Brotherhood was involved and the ramifications of that have become very evident since that time. (I’m guessing “freedom” = “absolute control.”) So, they clamored for “freedom,” yet they can’t let a lone individual have differing views from theirs’ without rioting and violence. They rioted and ransacked the US embassy, tearing down our flag, ripping it to shreds, then hung their Muslim flag ON OUR EMBASSY . . . OUR SOVEREIGN SOIL!
Any outrage from the Obama administration? Nope, but the embassy was quick to condemn the film maker and apologize, once again, that America hurt some muslim feelings.
Then, as if that’s not notable enough, I learned of the destruction of the US consulate and the murder of US Ambassador to Libya, and 3 other Americans. Originally, I had seen a story about it being linked to the same film that Cairo muslims cried about, but later in the day today, there seemed to be more talk of it being a planned, coordinated attack on us. Apparently, they didn’t like Hillary’s dumb comment about Quadaffi’s death (we came, we saw, he died), so on the anniversary of 9-11, they, perhaps, opted to plan an attack on our consulate. They destroyed it and killed the ambassador, along with 3 others. Whether it was coordinated or was another response to the aforementioned film, the attack was done.
Any outrage from the Obama administration on this one? Not that I’ve seen. By the way, you interested in the Muslim Brotherhood’s response? Here it is. While I’m at it, how about the movie that is at the center of all of this.
Now, back to Obama’s complete irresponsible, foolish behavior. I know he did say something before flying off to campaign in Vegas, but it wasn’t necessarily great or sincere. But hey, as the one who holds the highest office in the country – arguably the world – he has to keep his priorities straight, right? When muslims want us dead and they have just carried out an attack on us and chaos is brewing around the world, who is Mr. Obama to even act like a responsible, competent leader? We are foolish to expect that. He has to campaign so he can get voted in to complete the destruction of America that he is so hellbent on doing, so Vegas beckons. Not responsibility. Not empathy for the families. Certainly not respect for anybody or the country. Oh, and speaking of priorities for this imbecile, he blew off Israel’s Netanyahu, who desperately wants to know the “red line” the US will set for Iran . . . or if Israel is stuck on their own. While Obama blew off what has been our closest ally again, rejecting such a meeting, he also announced another appearance on the Letterman show. He has the priorities and leadership capabilities of a 12 year old. (I know that is an insult to 12 year olds and I don’t mean to offend, but surely you can understand my point.)
It has been an interesting and tense couple of days. Things are not good in the world. Things are not good here, in America. America’s standing in the world is not good. Obama has succeeded in bringing us down to a disrespected, laughing-stock of a presence in the world. He has weakened us while empowering our enemies. Let me ask about one thing:
Anytime you hear of a dog that has bitten somebody, or a wild animal (raccoon, etc.) that has bitten someone, what happens? That animal is usually deemed a danger, is hunted down/picked up, and killed. We have just been bitten by rabid animals. Are we going to leave them loose to bite again, or do we flex our muscle and show them what happens when you bite the Land of the Free? Are our muscles so atrophied and/or worn out that we have nothing left? I contend that some kind of response is necessary. We have yet to even get an adequate verbal response from our so-called leadership.
I’ll just say it as plainly as I know how: Obama, as a person, seems like he might be ok. He seems like he might be a good, well-meaning father and husband. I don’t know that, but he seems like it. However, as an American and as a leader . . . absolutely worthless. He is a complete disgrace to the office he holds and to every American ideal we hold dear. He is a complete detriment to this country. I can’t tell who we’re at war with the most: the commies, muslims, or our own government. All of them hate what America stands for. It’s old. It’s real old. While the commies and muslims can do and think as they please – unless they attack us – our own government must be ousted. As the election draws near, ask yourself if Obama exhibits any leadership qualities whatsoever. If you believe he does, I would certainly disagree with you, but let’s go with it. If he does, does his type of “leadership” help us or our enemies? Is it effective in maintaining U.S. prosperity, leadership, sovereignty and safety? The answer is obvious.
I had to share all of this today, though I don’t know what my overall point is. There is a lot of chaos in the world and this administration is treasonous . . . a domestic enemy of the state, if I may boldly declare. All we can do – we being true Americans that stand on Biblical principles and American ideals – is stand together and pray hard. We will never turn this thing around without God working in it. Please pray, everyone. Stay alert, stay prepared, and pray. Things must change in November. This election not only will decide if America lives or dies, but it will have global impact. The world is waiting to see what the American people decide and it will affect the entire world.
After learning of the passing of Neil Armstrong on Saturday, I felt like we closed a big chapter in America’s recent history. Armstrong was legendary as the commander of NASA’s Apollo 11 lunar mission and the first to step foot on the moon, showing American ingenuity, determination, and, yes, EXCEPTIONALISM in our space program. He is an icon. While other instrumental folks from that era are still with us, not as many stand out like Armstrong. With his passing, I must admit that a fleeting thought in my mind was something regarding the final death of American greatness with NASA . . . remember, Obama pretty much killed the space program so NASA could focus more on making Muslims feel better about themselves. Remember this?
How the Muslims’ self-esteem is NASA’s responsibility is beyond me (or why it’s America’s responsibility at all), but when we have the sheer anti-American crap, criminality and inexcusable ineptitude in this administration, what else can we expect? Now, an American icon has passed, further closing that era of American greatness . . . and actual progress, might I add. Now, what’s in store for America? Time will tell, but if Obama has any say in the matter, we’re guaranteed it’s not about anything American, independence, hard work or creativity, but all about him.
Why do I say that? Well, if the past 4 years of Obama’s blatant narcissism, anti-American rhetoric, attitudes, and actions, and obvious disdain for all things good and American . . . along with his arrogant, incessant praise and admiration of himself . .. if all of these things haven’t been enough to prove it, look at this photo.
As I began my work day this morning, I discovered this on Breitbart.com. In a time to honor an American icon (Armstrong), Obama thought the best way to do so was post a picture of himself looking at the moon. One site, soopermexican.com, claims that this picture was actually a “stock photo” that was originally taken 4 months ago! If that is true, it makes this scenario even more despicable.
Fellow Americans, with the election quickly approaching, if there is any question in your mind about which side of the aisle you are on, now is the time to ask and seek the answer. Forget his radical Marxist ties and beliefs, his anti-colonial/anti-American upbringing, and his Communist mentors and friends. Ask yourself this: Is it the time to keep someone in power who wants just that . . . all possible power to wield over us, to make us subjects to his every whim? Have we benefitted from having someone hold our highest office who rejects everything American? Does it do us any good to have someone weaken our defenses and cause our allies to no longer trust us while our enemies no longer fear us? Are we better off having record debt? Record numbers of people on welfare and government programs? Is it the sign of a good leader when he has never taken one ounce of responsibility, but rather refuses to deal with real issues. He only passes blame. He calls names, divides and ridicules. He never takes responsibility and acts in a way emphatically unworthy of the title President of the United States . . . or may I suggest even worthy of the title American? Someone who disgraces our country, our traditions, and history? One who disrespects our military, our police-force, and their families? Someone who thinks everything is a chance to ignore the real situation at hand, yet superimpose himself in it, though he has nothing to do with it at all . . . such as “honoring” Neil Armstrong by posting, what could be an old, picture of himself looking skyward?
How childishly arrogant can one be?
To answer all of these questions, I can only answer that this is all 100% wrong and we must oust this administration before they actually force themselves into a “regime” while we wonder what happened. We are far worse off with this pathetic excuse for “leadership.” We must change, return to our foundation, and give due respect to our icons, our history, and our country.
To Mr. Armstrong and family, we – proud Americans – honor you. We thank you for your work and your contribution to America’s great success story in contemporary history. We are sorry for your loss, and for America’s loss, but thank you for the memories and for that chapter in our country’s great life. We pray for you and, please know, we do not follow the example of the wannabe-dictator. He does not speak or act for us . . . we do respect you.
As for the “wannabe-dictator,” allow me to offer a line from the great Metallica song, “Don’t Tread on Me” -
“Love it or leave it, she with the deadly bite.”
