Politics and Religion: Election 2012

It has almost become a cliché, but November 6 of this year will undoubtedly be one of if not the most important elections in our history; certainly since Lincoln’s election just before the civil war.

We stand at the precipice of whether America will re-orient back toward the free, mostly Christian America most of us remember, or will we dive off the cliff into the jagged rocks of a post-Christian, European-style socialism with the same debt and economic ruin of Greece, Spain, and others.

For 200-plus years, America has been comprehensively blessed beyond any nation in the world in history, thanks to God! And every nation that has progressed and been blessed has done so because of the influence of Christianity. This is a historical fact. Those who would “unravel” that influence in our nation are traitors – according to our Founding Fathers! It was George Washington himself who said:

“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism who should labour to subvert these great Pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men and citizens. The mere Politician, equally with the pious man ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity.”

He also made this statement:

“…there is no truth more thoroughly established than that there exists in the economy and course of nature an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness.”

That means that as we depart from the goodness and order of God, we sink into the destructions of the enemy that await us, and which are manifest both in our culture and economy!

This election is essentially a referendum on Obama’s last four years, his liberal/socialist, anti-Christian, anti-Israel, anti-American agenda, and whether we can afford four more. We can’t – for those who are a little slow.

With a very short but honest “fruit inspection,” we see by his record that President Obama is:

A liberal socialist who wants to “share the wealth” and do it not through the freedom and blessing of charity and generosity, but through confiscatory, punitive taxes, and destructive debt.

Immoral because socialism is immoral. Theft is immoral! Socialism takes by force what one person earned and gives it to another. Government sanctioned theft is still theft. Robin Hood was still a thief! Jesus was never a thief. Judas was, and you can still hear his hypocritical cries “it could have been given to the poor” echoing in the self-serving political agenda of liberalism to this day!

Hyper-pro abortion He has worked every angle to make abortion not “safe and rare” as the democrats (Bill Clinton) once claimed – which is horrible enough – but easily available, even encouraged, and a mainstay of “Obamacare” with the government subsidizing abortions with your money. I quote National Right to Life President Carol Tobias: “All voters who care about the value and dignity of human life must do everything they can to elect Mitt Romney and a Congress who are committed to repeal of ObamaCare, If President Obama wins re-election, it will mean massive abortion subsidies and it will put the lives of millions at risk through systematic government-imposed rationing of lifesaving medical care.”

Not “pro-Christian. Though he claims to be one, he says we’re not a Christian nation. He is very pro-Muslim and anti-Israel. He cancels the National Day of Prayer activities in the White House so as not to offend anyone, but makes a big deal out of Ramadan. So where are his true loyalties? Is it really that hard to figure out?

Very suspect on national defense issues. From the looming massive, dangerous cuts in our military budget to the terrorists attacks in Libya and Egypt that killed four diplomats (and then with the administration knowingly and repeatedly lying about what they knew had happened), he has no core commitment to our security.

The “debtor in chief.” We owe over 16 trillion dollars. He has incurred more national debt than all previous presidents combined throughout our history!

Openly supports same-sex marriage, a cultural disaster in the making. Ever society in history that has embraced homosexual behavior has ultimately died. He and his corrupt Attorney General (Holder) do not support and defend the DOMA law, and actually work against it even though it is still the law! Administering and enforcing the law is the primary responsibility of the Administrative branch of our government, whether they like the law or not! And this is just one of many laws they overtly disrespect and refuse to enforce because it is not in line with their agenda.

Has rammed down our throat the forced acceptance of homosexual behavior in the military, lowering the morale of the forces, and putting an even larger bulls-eye on those serving in the Middle East.

And the list goes on, and on, and on, and on . . .

There is an old saying “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me!” Don’t be fooled! Vote righteously! Support the truths of God, Biblical principles, and our constitution that was framed from it!

The fabric of our nation is rapidly fraying in part because of the less-than-pro-America, anti-God president we have in the White House. His socialistic party that controls the Senate hasn’t even passed a budget for several years. It’s time to wake up from this nightmare, and get a grip on the steering wheel of our nation before we cross the median into the oncoming traffic! Our children will one day look back and realize how they were counting on us to be grown-ups this time around! Let’s not fail them….each other….or God!
