Field of Dreams? Regarding the American Voter and the 2014 Election

         In the movie Field of Dreams, Annie kept asking Ray, “What’s this got to do with baseball?” Ray had been doing much research on the mythical 1960s activist Terrance Mann and was becoming convinced he must meet the man for some unknown reason.

         So some may be wondering what American elections have to do with real Christianity. Some may also be wondering why I posted a picture of an American flag at half mast before the Capitol Building with my previous post The Fix Is In: Delusion Illusion (Part 4).

         I want everyone to know I made the post in the morning on election day having no knowledge of how the voting would go, but like everyone else, knew the Republicans would pick up some seats and by doing so might at least curtail somewhat the destruction of the last several years.

         Some continue to believe that the actual results, a Republican slam dunk, was not so much a referendum against the Democrats and the President, but simply an expression of great anger among voting Americans to throw the bums out, whoever they were, and bring in new people.

         Others believe Americans had somehow seen the error of their ways in electing so many Democrats and granting them so much power, only to have the country continue to suffer with a relatively poor economy, the continued destruction of the middle class, and exponential debt in which the country now owes almost 18 trillion dollars with nothing whatsoever being done to change course.

         Having the benefit of being around a while and dating my foray into closely following national politics to before I was in high school, I have obviously seen this kind of thing many times over. I have seen the Republicans garner great gains in the past. I remember the landslide elections of Ronald Reagan. I remember when Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon lied their way into the presidency and brought so many of their respective party members with them. I have seen a terribly gullible American public buy into the flat-out garbage of so many candidates from both parties over several decades.

         So I decided to put the flag at half mast before knowing the outcome of election day because I knew that no matter what happened nothing would change for the better.

         Nothing ever changes for the better regarding the overall health of the nation with these guys except very briefly and only in fits and starts. And one thing we can always be sure of is this: Whenever we have the chance to do something greatly dramatic for the betterment of the country, to change course to a much better America, something always comes along and stops the progress that rarely ever has a chance. And every time this happens it is done by someone with a Democrat or Republican label.

         And people keep electing Republicans and Democrats.

         Yet no matter how many times I say there is no longer any real effective difference in these political parties and has not been in a very long time, people look at me with a blank stare and mutter a television sound bite as if I have not a clue. But facts are facts. We are in the great, gigantic, ridiculous, sorry, rotten, evil mess we are in because of Democrats and Republicans. The members of these two parties caused all of it and continue to cause it and as long as they remain what they are nothing will ever change.

         So even though the Republicans have won a great victory because the voters are demanding great change, nothing substantial will change. Of course, there will be the appearance of change. Very small and very incremental change may happen and will be presented as major change. But when either one of these parties had all the power and could do anything they wanted, they certainly did not make the country better but instead made it much, much worse. And it always happened at such times that Americans went along with the deviations (were duped) and later saw that they were duped.

         Take the abortion issue, for example. I have been following this since abortion was made legal in 1973. Since that time, over 50 million American babies have been aborted by many estimates. That is roughly one third of the population increase in America since that time. There were times when the supposed pro-life party, the Republicans, could have done something substantial but they never did. Why?

         We have relatively young, naive pro-life advocates playing the losing game of trying to elect Republican presidents so such presidents will appoint pro-life Supreme Court justices but they never do so without also appointing pro-abortion justices. It happened with Ronald Reagan. It happened with both Bushes. Every time victory is there to grasp someone makes an idiot move and defeat is snatched from the jaws of victory.

         Though I have been saying this for decades I have never had much of a platform, just like many of you who are reading this. But I read an article today that says this much better than I could and also contains some astounding facts. I encourage you to read the article found here.

         The point of this posting that I write this morning is not to say great change for the better cannot come. I believe it must come and I believe it will. Those of you that have been following this blog know that I believe a national Great Awakening is in the early stages. I remain very optimistic. But I put my faith in the Lord Jesus and the millions of real Christians in this country He is working through.

         But I am not optimistic because of many mainline American “Christians” whose spiritual deadness and lack of heart for God put themselves on the losing, pessimistic side, most of whom will never believe such a thing and will refuse to participate when it comes forth. And I am not optimistic at all by anything Washington DC will do. And I know for certain that trusting Republicans and Democrats to make the country better is a losing dream and always has been. I will say again that it is a very sad thing that so many Christians in America are duped into believing these people, watch them never follow through, elect a new batch and seeing them fail and never follow through, and do it over and over again.

         The respective political parties know they can do anything they want and get away with anything they want because the pendulum will swing back in their favor after the other party violates trust. As long as Americans believe there is no third choice this will keep happening.

         It is like visiting the same restaurant every night with only two items on the menu. Hmmm… Wonder what I’ll have tonight…

         At some point one must make the leap into understanding that Washington has a different agenda—a MUCH different agenda. Elected candidates are certainly going there for something, but it never turns out to be why they were elected to go there when it comes to affecting real change for the better.

         Since such is defined by so many in so many different ways, we must remember that the founding documents of this country that set a foundational tone contain truths that all honest people back and desire, and that a system of government was set up then to not only primarily guarantee freedom and liberty for the individual but greatly curtail the political machinations of evil, money-grubbing, hell-bound, greedy, live-for-this-world duplicitous liars, who only want to use Americans for their own ends.

         Sound familiar?

         And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. [2 Peter 2:3 KJV]

         We will soon find out what these new Republicans in sudden power will do with the opportunity granted them by the American voter. Hopefully, maybe a few good things get done.

         But if Americans threw the bums out this time around and really mean business, like Americans never have before, they will hold the Republicans’ feet to the fire and demand, every day, that they do what we want them to do, and not what their money masters tell them to do, as it has always happened in the past.

         But because I’ve seen this movie so many times before, and because I know the plot by heart, and because I can see right through the lies of these people and know they never deliver, I also know the movie will end the same way it always does.

         Field of Dreams? Sure. But Ray will first have to plow under the vast cornfield that is Washington DC.

Election Rejection: What Goes Around Comes Around

         And because the Republican Party establishment will continue to savage Ron Paul and refuse to give him anything at all, the Republican Party will go into the election without him and it will end up costing them in November. Keep in mind that Ron Paul is a Republican and has been for many years. But it won’t matter. He refuses to be bought, refuses to obey the corrupt Republican Party line, and will be smeared and cut out (unless by some miracle they see the light). At this writing, the Republican Party establishment would rather lose than accept Ron Paul. [You’re Being Scammed (January 7, 2012)]       

         And lose they did. After all the effort, all the money, all the sacrifice, all the hope, all the dreams, and all the work, the Republicans still lost. What exactly was accomplished?

         Regarding the Presidential Election itself, pretty much nothing.

         The current occupant of the White House, to the great dismay of almost exactly half the country, is still the current occupant of the White House and will be for quite a while.

         It was said from the get go that Ron Paul was not electable. But tell me, would you really rather have the current occupant than Ron Paul? Because Congressman Paul was “not electable,” but Mitt Romney was electable, and according to conventional wisdom much more so, Ron Paul was cast aside and Mr. Romney was bear hugged and smothered with kisses.

         But he still lost. As it turned out, Mitt Romney was the one who was not electable. In an election that should have been a cakewalk, Romney lost to the worst President in American history.

         It is easy for me to see where it all went haywire because I already knew what would happen after the best candidate was rejected. Rules were changed. Behind the scenes cheating and skullduggery took place. And the arrogant attitude and Nazi-like control of Republican bigwigs blazed forth into one of the biggest losses in Republican history.

         The man in the White House was mortally wounded but the Republicans still managed to snatch a humiliating defeat from the jaws of victory. This is like blowing a three touchdown lead in the last quarter. (Wait. Didn’t I see the Dallas Cowboys do this a few million times over the last several years?)

         The defeat of the incumbent should have been a sure thing, but two primary and significant scenarios were playing out that made this one of the most unprecedented presidential elections in history:

(1) The first has to do with the complete rejection of Ron Paul and millions of his passionate supporters, both young and old, all over the country. This was the stupidest thing the Republican Party could have done. It alienated millions of great Americans, the early majority of those in the military, and a gigantic block of young, aware, and intelligent voters.

         What were they thinking? Hard to say. Insanity has no rhyme or reason.

         But it was mostly about the money. And control. Mitt Romney had by far the greatest treasure chest and the greatest financial backers of any other Republican candidate, matched only by those of the current occupant.

         But Ron Paul had the grassroots. He had the passionate backers who had already done their research and were not swayed by political talking heads and brain dead, bubble-headed TV commentators. The LSM was undoubtedly in the pocket of the main guy, but money does some serious talking, and the corporate media played their role flawlessly, supporting the money.

         But money is no equal to real Americans passionate for their country who see right through the LSM gobbledygook and the insanity that is DC. Even so, many more Americans who began running the race well allowed themselves to be compromised by fake candidates who were largely doing nothing but running interference for the elite-chosen Republican big boy.

         I tried to warn people, but it just proves how many millions of voters in this country are swayed by the media, and that the media has an agenda that opposes real American life and progress.

         Nevertheless, this election will turn out to be a great victory for the country, which brings me to the second primary and significant scenario:

(2) Judgment. Earlier in the year, I had agreed with another writer that reelecting the current occupant would later prove to be a much better thing than a Romney victory. Why? Because if Romney was elected president in 2012, most Republican and conservative independent voters would go back to sleep thinking a great victory was won in cleansing the nation of the current occupant. This is exactly what would have happened. And the new guy would continue the same sorry policies as the old guy and most people would pay no attention, and the country would continue going down the drain.

         I happened to mention this in a comment on a conservative blog earlier this year and got lambasted for it, due only to the great passion involved in not wanting to necessarily fix the country, but simply get rid of the current occupant (even though this always plays into the opposition’s hand).

         But now that the current occupant has been reelected, the real fighters for American liberty will continue to be goaded on by an obvious non-Constitutional interloper. The intent, however, will not be to remove him but fix the country. The election of the new guy would have sapped this strength.

         I keep trying to express the fact that the big boys are highly, highly intelligent, rich, and are expert extrapolators. They always know what nearly every sequence of events will be and have almost every base covered. They are world-class manipulators.

         But the one base they do not have covered is the passion of the electorate. The elite in control (both major parties) are very, very few in number. Though they have ripped off America and have many, many puppets in power, they will never be able to contain the revolutionary fervor that is coming, even though they are planning for it the best they can. Before it’s over, Americans will take their country back. In the meantime, as I expressed in my last post, judgment will continue:

And regarding predictions, whichever of these men gets elected on Tuesday, I will guarantee you this:

There will be judgment on his administration.

         And judgment in general will continue upon the country and will accelerate. Just as is the case when a lawbreaker goes too far and ends up in prison and must be incarcerated to protect society, so will there be judgment against the ungodly for the preservation of the country. Discipline never looks or feels good at the time, but if the corrective is accepted and applied, good things result. Judgment is simply a much louder alarm clock.

         The coming years will continue to be tough but God always takes care of His own. Real Christians will continue in faith and will be used of the Lord Jesus to continue bringing in probably the greatest Great Awakening this country has ever seen. What we are beginning to see is a much higher level of spiritual kingdoms at war.

         Speaking of which, the way to win the war is according to the following:

         “Blessed are you when men hate you, and ostracize you, and insult you, and scorn your name as evil, for the sake of the Son of Man. Be glad in that day and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven. For in the same way their fathers used to treat the prophets.

         “But woe to you who are rich, for you are receiving your comfort in full.

         “Woe to you who are well-fed now, for you shall be hungry.

         “Woe to you who laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep.

         “Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for their fathers used to treat the false prophets in the same way.

         “But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; and whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either. Give to everyone who asks of you, and whoever takes away what is yours, do not demand it back.

         “Treat others the same way you want them to treat you.

         “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. If you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. If you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners in order to receive back the same amount. But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil men.

         “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

         “Do not judge, and you will not be judged; and do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; pardon, and you will be pardoned.

         “Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.” [Luke 6:22-38] [1]

THANK YOU FOR READING. PLEASE HELP ME GET THE WORD OUT. BE BLESSED.

The Deceived Majority (Part 3)

         Our news is heavily censored. The mainstream media does not tell the whole story. It only tells part of the story. It has preset limits. It will not report anything regarding the real intentions and purposes of the power elite. Hence, the American citizenry have been conditioned to fight against the very thing they need.

         Instead of standing up for freedom, justice, truth, and the American way, the majority of the country stands up for the bondage, injustice, lies, and the un-American ways of the financial big boys running the world.

         Americans have been deceived into shooting themselves and one another while the bank robbers make their getaway.

         Why do you think we are currently in such a bad economic downturn? Indications are that there is no recovery in sight. Yet the government keeps doing everything it has ever done and more. We keep spending like there’s no tomorrow. We keep fighting wars we cannot win. Iraq turned into a disaster. The original goals were never met. Washington DC keeps raiding the pockets of Americans doing things that do nothing substantial for Americans. In fact, our money is being used against us, yet we still go along with the program. This is sheer lunacy. Americans are acting as if they are certifiably insane. All the signs are there that America is insane. We keep doing the same thing election after election hoping for a different result and nothing material ever changes for the better. The new boss is the same as the old boss. We keep electing their choices instead of ours.

         But America is not insane. America is deceived.

         I had high hopes for the 2012 elections. But the overall Tea Party Movement had already been co-opted and watered-down since the 2010 elections. It was the one force within the Republican Party demanding real change for the better but has currently collapsed into mediocrity in supporting globalist, establishment candidates. The majority of Christian “evangelicals” in this country also support the establishment choices. Go figure. American voters continue to choose candidates who promise the moon and but give us a different kind of moon. It’s happening all over again.

         The Tea Party Movement now sees very clearly that it has supported the wrong candidates. Newt Gingrich has gone south regardless of the Sarah Palin endorsement and the mega-millions of his Las Vegas casino supporter. Evangelicals threw their votes away as usual, the majority on the goofy and duplicitous Rick Santorum. And last and least, Mitt Romney, the bought and paid for rich guy of the mega rich, has actually garnered much Tea Party support, though he is about as Tea Party as the president.

         The Tea Party higher-ups blew it. They rejected the only Tea Party candidate in the race. They are starting to understand that they messed up big time, that they missed their moment in the sun, and that they handed the race to the very people they claim to be against. Mitt Romney is the chosen candidate of the economic elites who are destroying America. Tea Party people, Christian Evangelicals, and Catholics are supporting Romney in large numbers. As time goes on they will see what stunning dunderheads they were.

         There was a freedom uprising in the making after the Ron Paul Revolution of 2007-2008, the Tea Party breakout in early 2009, and the high point during the 2010 elections, but it has gone soft again. Some of the elected Tea Party candidates have proven to be disingenuous pretenders. We’ve been made to believe that the likes of the president, Romney, Santorum, and Gingrich are the only possible saviors of the nation, and the latter three are even being portrayed as pro-Tea Party, which is just dumb.

         Ron Paul remains THE ONLY Tea Party game-changing presidential candidate, and was so even among the full field of Republican aspirants.  

         Most do not study the policies and background of presidential hopefuls. Most do not care about their real views. Most Americans only care about surface stuff and personalities and sound bites and emotional rhetoric and political theater. The American electorate appears as a high school kid dreaming about a certain girl but never having the gumption to ask her out. Instead, he chooses someone easy and unchallenging—the crooked rooker and vain rhetorician—the pretender and the pretty boy—the mnemonic mime and crowd pleasing good old boy—the pseudo-evangelical and the believer in moron angels—a bunch of safe status quo Lego-equipped plug-ins, but no real game changers. Real change for the better can happen, there is no doubt about that, but voters keep choosing the “safe” route. Americans keep choosing mediocre snake-oil salesmen and double-agent politicians instead of truth-telling statesmen.

         Like the ten wimpy spies in the Sinai wilderness who chickened-out on facing giants and fighting for the Promised Land, the Deceived Majority has forced the real American Patriots to continue trudging around the desert instead of fighting for and gaining the prize. You know what happened next after the spies turned in their report. God was on fire with anger, upset by their lack of faith, courage, and refusal to man-up. (See my article, Fighting For the Promised Land.)

         This is what America is now facing. As Billy Graham said at the first Clinton inaugural in 1993, we have sown to the wind and reaped the whirlwind.

          The solution remains right in front of us. All we have to do is just do it.

         JUST DO IT.

         We must fix our country. We the People are the boss, not the hell-bound elites in power. We are being murdered in slow motion. Americans feel this effect and the pain associated thereof but continue to put up with it. We know something is very wrong but most are unaware of what is actually causing it or what to do about it. Who are the murderers of America?

         There is only one presidential candidate who consistently sticks to his views whether it hurts or helps him politically. He does not have the “lying politician gene” possessed by most office holders that they use to shade truth and protect themselves. He is not a politician. He is not telling you what you want to hear. He is telling you the truth. He is an American statesman. The others are political inserts. They are backed by very powerful people and interests.

         Ron Paul is backed by the people, and many of those are young adults. These young ones know what is going on. They are much smarter, more knowledgeable, and more aware than older Americans because they’ve only consumed relatively small amounts of the government and media-sponsored “believe what we tell you to” kool aid. These young patriotic critical thinkers are the hope of America and will eventually make the difference. They are supporting Ron Paul in ever-growing numbers with much passion. They are supporting their future dreams and American freedom.     

         With regard to the 2012 presidential election, freedom can still make it to the oval office this year, at least in some form, even though the fix is already in and the majority continues voting for the wrong people. (See my article, You’re Being Scammed.)

         But because real change is afoot, the young will right our course in due time, whether this year or later. The demographics are very clear: Older Americans are choosing Romney. Gingrich and Santorum land in the upper middle, and much of Ron Paul’s support is from the young. It is without doubt generational. The Freedom Movement will continue to advance. The truth will keep coming forth. God will bring forth those who will make the difference. Whoever is elected in 2012 other than Ron Paul will have the power to drive the final nail in the coffin of this country and will certainly try, but the opposite will happen. It will again be sad to see an election opportunity go down the drain, but it will serve as an ultra-serious wake-up call.

         Regarding deceived and wimpy majorities, only about one third of the American colonists supported the Revolution. Yet, this one third, a decided and very clear minority, defeated the greatest power on the planet with almost 70% of their own countrymen opposing them. How you like them odds? Remind you of a little guy named Gideon?       

         Real American Patriots are fighting back, not as a bunch of law-breaking rebels and senseless street rioters, but in the spirit of 1776 when the enemy was just as powerful and just as entrenched. Our founders knew the only way to be successful was through full commitment. They did not look back. They did not back down. They did not consider what losing would entail. It was all or nothing. They refused to quit. Americans did the impossible then, and Americans will do it again.

         God is on our side. The arrogant big boys are going down.

IRAN IN THE CROSSHAIRS! (Part 1)

         February 2, 2012: Israel says the West has the ability to make a successful military strike on all of Iran’s nuclear facilities, though the Pentagon claims we do not have conventional weapons strong enough to do the job.

           “The West has the ability to strike, but as long as Iran isn’t convinced that there’s a determination to follow through with it, they’ll continue with their manipulations,” said Vice Prime Minister, Strategic Affairs Minister, and former IDF chief Moshe Ya’alon. “The Iranians believe that a determination isn’t still there, both in regards to military action and in regards to sanctions,” and that “any facility protected by humans can be infiltrated by humans. It’s possible to strike all Iran’s facilities, and I say that out of my experience as IDF chief of staff.”

         This contradicts a Wall Street Journal report last week in which Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta was quoted as saying the United States does not have a bunker buster bomb big enough to penetrate and destroy the underground Iranian facilities where suspected nuclear programs are in the works. “We’re still trying to develop them,” said Panetta.

         Later today Leon Panetta said he feared Israel would strike Iran this spring.

         Who is actually driving US foreign policy in the Middle East?

         The following series is an attempt to set the record straight, reveal less-known information, and expose the truth regarding the current crisis regarding the United States and the nation of Iran. There is an ongoing globalist agenda covered up by a false agenda. America has been hoodwinked regarding its foreign policy in the Middle East.

         Critics of presidential candidate Ron Paul, for example, who might like him otherwise, usually cite his foreign policy views as the reason they choose not to support him. His views, however mischaracterized and in the minority they may seem to be, are generally the correct ones. They are based on the vision and wisdom of our founding fathers and Constitution of the United States. It must be noted that members of our active duty military support Ron Paul more than any other announced 2012 presidential candidate. What do they know that most Americans don’t know?

         It should be shocking that our national creed is treated with such indifference and lack of respect, especially by our duly elected representatives, but Americans have become too apathetic to be rightfully concerned. We are motivated more by fear of perceived enemies than honor of the law of the land. Military strength means we must always be strongly prepared, but never against our rights as American citizens or disrespect of the law. Spreading ourselves too thin has actually weakened us, and has taken us down the road of all empires: Continual expansion means eventual inability to maintain control. Contraction has always been the inevitable outcome of all historical empires.

         The dominant foreign policy of America that most people continue to support is one of aggression, war, incredible spending, nation-building, and most of all, the unbridled and ongoing expansion of the American Global Military Empire. It is geographic in that we have military personnel stationed in over 150 countries of the world, which accounts for almost 80% of the nations on the planet. Total US military bases on foreign soil total approximately 750. According to anyone’s definition, this is a massive presence which clearly denotes empire, and it is the maintenance of this empire that is actually subverting our military strength.

         And the United States can no longer afford it. Our national debt is currently 15.3 TRILLION dollars. It is rising exponentially. Our foreign wars have assisted in bankrupting the country. We don’t have the money. The money we do have is mere paper with no backing, and is becoming worth less by the minute through rising inflation since we keep the printing presses humming. The currency itself is also becoming devalued but retains relative strength due mainly to our wildly out of balance trade deficit. We are buying many more foreign goods than others are buying from us and this is keeping the dollar in decent shape, though the world cannot do as much with the dollars they possess. The Federal Reserve has set interest rates at the bottom for the foreseeable future, below the rate of inflation of course, in part to make the dollar attractive to foreign investors. But this is done at the expense of our own recovery and is only putting off the inevitable collapse of the US economy. The Dollar Index has lost 3.5% in the last two weeks since its highs in mid-January and war pressure is ratcheting up to stop the slide.

         There is currently a war on between the dollar and the euro. Many countries are making a move to alternative currencies. The prospective war in Iran is actually about (1) the petrodollar-euro war, (2) the Russia-China-Iran economic oil alliance, which also includes India and Pakistan, and (3) the move by the US to gain the strategic and geographical high ground by securing Iran once again as a national ally and bring the nation under the full control of the West.

         There is no doubt that the Iranian government has been hostile to the US ever since the 1979 Iranian revolution that ousted the Shah, when an independent Islamic Republic was formed. But their hostility began when we overthrew their government in a 1953 coup and set up the Shah as our own guy in charge. Iran has always been coveted not only due to its location and vast resources, but currently because it represents the last puzzle piece toward dominance in the region.

         This is what the long-term Iraq and Afghanistan wars are actually about, in that they served as opening salvos and precursors to eventual regional hegemony. Iraq became our ally after we lost Iran. These two countries fought an eight year proxy war to a stalemate in the 1980’s. The breaking point with Iraq came when Saddam Hussein attacked Kuwait. The 1991 war against him was a lesson he failed to learn. Some thought he should have been removed at that time.

         A decade later Saddam defied the United States by switching from American petrodollars to the euro in November of 2000. This was the largely unknown watershed moment when the decision was made to take him out.

The 2012 Freedom Movement (Part 2)

         More people are educating themselves. There is much more information to be had. Americans are realizing more and more that America is going away and could be lost forever. And no one is more on point then young twenty-somethings and young people who are getting the big idea that they like America and are willing to fight for their future. Many of these supported our current president and have seen a completely different person than the one they thought they voted for. Everyone must go through this at some point. We all get disillusioned when so much promise turns into so much business as usual.

         Hence, young Americans hold the key to the future of the country. Many people think most young adults are card-carrying liberals and staunch supporters of the Democratic Party, but this is simply not true. Were liberals in charge from January 2001 to January 2009? Will we continue to choose sides and protect our establishment choices even though they are running the country into the ground? Will we continue to be fooled by the “Divide and Conquer” method the ruling elite uses to remain in power? We keep electing Democrats and Republicans and they continue destroying the country. America is currently in the bad shape it’s in due not to those in Washington DC, but due to the wrong choices of We the People.

         The Freedom Movement is about We the People coming of age and growing up. It is composed of Americans of all persuasions. The political parties and their media want to continue igniting political and class warfare because it sells. It’s great for business. But the Tea Party Movement and the Occupy Wall Street Movement have much in common, though I do not agree with the law-breaking tactics of some of those in the latter. Rioting and destruction is self-defeating. Yet, standing up for the truth will ultimately bring an attack from those who oppose it. Many independent voters have risen above the usual hate between parties and ideologies and are trying to save the country, not fight one another to prove a point. Imagine what will happen if we combine forces against our common enemy.

         Educate yourself. Discover the politics of the major backers of our candidates. Where are they getting their money? What political interest groups are in their corner? Who are they working for? Who is Wall Street supporting? What globalist anti-American groups do the candidates belong to?

         Regarding the only candidate concerned about your freedom, Ron Paul has been falsely characterized by the media as an isolationist (a lie) and weak on defense (a lie). People often cite his foreign policy as something they cannot support. As opposed to fighting undeclared wars that kill millions of foreign citizens and cost trillions of dollars? His real record has been falsified and you owe it to yourself and the country to find the truth. In the meantime, can you find any fault in the following about Congressman Paul?

He is a Medical Doctor who has delivered over 4,000 babies.

He is the only candidate who served proudly and honorably in the military.

He is the author of nine books.

He is a champion of the Constitution and freedom.

He is an advocate of states’ rights over the federal government.

He has never voted to raise taxes.

He has never voted for an unbalanced budget.

He has never voted for a federal restriction on gun ownership.

He has never voted to raise congressional pay.

He has proposed term-limit legislation multiple times.

He refuses to partake of the lucrative congressional pension program.

He has supported stronger borders and coastlines and opposed all benefits for illegal aliens.

He has never taken a government-paid junket.

He has never voted to increase the power of the executive branch.

He voted against the Banker Bailout.

He returns a portion of his annual congressional office budget to the U.S. treasury every year.

He proposed legislation making service industry tips tax free income.

He voted for Military Force against Terrorists in response to the 9/11 attacks.

He proposed legislation to decrease Congressional pay by the rate of inflation.

He has opposed funding global organizations and participation in agreements that compromise the Constitution and US sovereignty such as the IMF, World Bank, NAFTA, WTO, and UN.

He has introduced legislation to increase transparency of the federal government as well as auditing the Federal Reserve.

He is a real Christian.

         Ron Paul has always known what the problems are that keep America from being what it should be, and has consistently been saying the same thing for decades. His message is spreading exponentially. Other candidates have adopted some of his arguments. He continues to gain greater support each voting cycle. His views are the views of future peace, prosperity, and liberty. They are the views of American freedom. He is the ONLY game changer.

         Our Lord Jesus always fights on the side of freedom. That’s what the gospel message is all about. Why would He suffer death on the cross only to be an advocate for bondage?

         The LORD will go forth like a warrior, He will arouse His zeal like a man of war. He will utter a shout, yes, He will raise a war cry. He will prevail against His enemies. [Isaiah 42:13] [1]

The 2012 Freedom Movement (Part 1)

         The backlash has begun. The times we are currently living in are unprecedented. Our Constitutional rights are under attack like never before. The economy is being shored up by several mass printings of Federal Reserve Notes (our worthless paper currency), and inflation can only rise. Huge numbers of Americans have lost their jobs, homes, and livelihoods. The USA PATRIOT Act has devastated our Fourth Amendments rights. The Amendment states:

         The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

         The Supreme Court recently weighed in on warrantless searches in UNITED STATES v. JONES

         Yet there is no way to defend against all possible cyber searches. In some way or another, American citizens are constantly under some sort of surveillance. According to the letter of the law and the decree of certain courts, the government has been reigned in and does not have the broad powers it desperately wants. But in reality anyone with a cell phone can be tracked and there is no way one can know it. Anything one does online can be tracked. It is possible for unlawful secret surveillance to take place with no one being the wiser. For example, when you stepped outside this morning you were on camera. Satellite surveillance blankets the entire globe 24/7. Several countries have spy satellites, of course, and international law does not police the action of those who surveil from space.

         The Fourth Amendment is essentially a privacy clause, but real privacy no longer exists. The right of American citizens to be protected from stolen data should always exist but there is obviously no guaranteed manner and failsafe mechanism to do this. When the Fourth Amendment was originally written, it concerned one’s tangible private papers and correspondence. But almost everything has become digital and is up for grabs. It is impossible to protect all of one’s cyber paper trail from illegal searches and seizures.

         This is simply a fact.

         Most Americans consequently have the attitude that if they are doing nothing illegal it simply does not matter. But this is not and has never been the point.

         We are supposed to be free citizens with unalienable rights bestowed by God according to the original legal documents of this land. But our freedoms have been greatly curtailed and the trend will continue unless the citizenry fights back. Zero action on our part will result in zero action to stop the ongoing abuse of our rights.

         Enter what has been called “The Freedom Movement.” Millions of American citizens are beginning to take the first steps toward standing up to runaway governmental power. We all know something is very wrong. Citizens are becoming more concerned every day. It is often only during federal election years that people pay more attention to this subject. But sadly, every candidate but one is not at all sympathetic to the curtailed rights of Americans. Thus, if that one man does not get elected, NOTHING SUBSTANTIAL WILL CHANGE. And if this is what America wants, then it is what America will get.

         Again.

         It happens this way every four years. Americans always elect a candidate that represents the power elite but acts like a man of the people. Even a littler study into the matter will reveal this. Why it is that only a small minority of Americans has ever bothered to stand up for the truth over the last 100 years in particular can only mean we are deceived into believing the lies of presidential candidates and make our choices based on the wrong information.

         For example, 601,000 people cast votes in the 2012 South Carolina primary on January 21, and over 40% chose the winner, Newt Gingrich, largely due to his rhetoric and debating ability, and primarily because he attacks the news media. Two thirds of evangelical Christian voters chose him despite the fact that Rick Santorum was endorsed by evangelicals. Ron Paul, on the other hand, stood up for the teachings of our Lord Jesus by invoking the Golden Rule and he got booed! What is that all about?

         For one thing it represents the ability of Newt Gingrich to work a crowd. He is excellent at it. Victorious candidates must be able to do this. Our current president is one of the best. We continually fall into the trap of believing a candidate’s insincere rhetoric and actually expect that most of what is promised will never happen once the candidate is elected.

         Therefore, Americans have traditionally looked at presidential elections as mere political theater. We elect actors not statesmen. We elect bought and paid for politicians with unseen agendas. It’s not their fault. It’s our fault. We continue to be duped. But this is changing.

You’re Being Scammed

        

         The Republican Party establishment is doing the unthinkable. Ronald Reagan is turning over in his grave. The party regulars are so determined to maintain control they will put up another lightweight bought-and-paid-for candidate this November. This plan, like all other election plans, has been in the works since at least the last election. John McCain was bought and paid for and played the role of Loser against the chosen candidate of BOTH political parties in 2008. And now John McCain has endorsed Mitt Romney, the establishment man, as the next Republican nominee.

         Mitt Romney has also been endorsed by Mr. Middle-of-the-Road, no passion, “No New Taxes” George H. W. Bush himself, as well as Governor Chris Christie, who was nominated by George W. Bush for U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey in 2001. Sadly, the liberal Mitt has been endorsed as well by new South Carolina governor Nikki Haley, who was endorsed by Sarah Palin and received heavy support from the Tea Party. Haley’s endorsement of Romney is nothing short of a betrayal and shows how serious the double-dealing is in current politics. She, of course, received $36,000 from Romney’s PAC in 2010. In fact, many of Mitt’s endorsers have received money from his PAC.[1] What a coincidence.

         To her credit, however, while not yet officially endorsing any presidential candidate, Sarah Palin has warned the GOP against marginalizing Ron Paul. She said we all need Ron Paul’s message and that he must be included in Republican Party plans.

         But according to the party bigwigs and what is apparently now the feeling of the general Republican voter, this will not be the case. Republicans want a soft, easy, and “electable” candidate. The Reagan testosterone, vision, and backbone have been tossed out the window. In these times that try men’s souls, when an American statesman is called for, the Republican Party establishment has not chosen a Washington or John Adams, but a Neville Chamberlain. And we don’t even get the piece of paper to wave around (9/30/1938): 

 

         These are the latest Gallup Poll numbers.

         The Mitt is therefore the obvious establishment chosen one. He has learned very well that money talks and has learned how to make it talk. Every Republican candidate so far during this election cycle (flavor of the day) has shot to the top and then crashed and burned, except Ron Paul, and Ron Paul is the one candidate the establishment hates. They refuse to give him ANYTHING, yet his support remains strong and steady. Cain shot up and went down. Perry shot up and went down. Bachmann shot up and went down. Gingrich shot up and went down. Currently, Santorum has shot up and will soon come down. The fix is in. Romney is the choice.

         And because the Republican Party establishment will continue to savage Ron Paul and refuse to give him anything at all, the Republican Party will go into the election without him and it will end up costing them in November. Keep in mind that Ron Paul is a Republican and has been for many years. But it won’t matter. He refuses to be bought, refuses to obey the “official” Republican Party line, and will be smeared and cut out (unless by some miracle they see the light). At this writing, the Republican Party establishment would rather lose than accept Congressman Paul.

         Newt Gingrich said no “decent” American would ever support Ron Paul. I guess he believes Mr. Paul’s Congressional district is composed of a bunch of indecent folks. Regarding who is “decent,” check this out: http://loopyloo305.com/2011/12/06/the-real-newt-gingrich/ . And in yet another strange twist on the weird endorsement front, Todd Palin has now thrown his hat in with Gingrich, and likens Newt’s political trials of the 1990’s with what his wife Sarah Palin went through after becoming a vice-presidential candidate in 2008.  

         Rick Santorum took the attack against truth to new lows when he called Ron Paul “disgusting.” But guess whose questionable record is now surfacing? And speaking of endorsements, Rick Santorum endorsed Mitt Romney in 2008. Romney is the same candidate this time around as he was then, which makes Santorum a veritable clone of the Mitt.

         Yet, regardless of such vicious attacks against Ron Paul and his millions of supporters, Ron Paul won’t go away because more and more Americans are rallying to his side. He could end up gaining somewhere between a quarter to a third of the delegates needed for the nomination, or the equivalent thereof in terms of voters. The prudent thing for the Republican Party to do would be to accept him and his message. But the establishment will most likely refuse.

         It is then that light bulbs will be going off over the heads of that many more Americans. They will realize that the Democrat and Republican Parties are joined at the hip and are mere opposite sides of the same coin. These two political parties are solely responsible for the entire mess we are in. And it doesn’t matter to the big boys who wins the presidency as long as it is one of their chosen ones of either party. The fix is in that it will either be the president or Romney.

         And we’re going to fix the country with either of these guys? Are they serious? Of course they’re not serious. (YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!) They don’t want to “fix” the country. They’re the ones who screwed it up to begin with. There is a purpose behind the plan. It is about wealth and it is about power. It is about control. The American Middle Class is disappearing and the rich are getting richer. This is their time. They are sticking it to you America.

         Who are “they?” They’re the ones who have the power and wealth to do whatever they want. What do they want? MORE Power and Wealth.

         Does not Biblical prophecy continually put forth that this exact scenario will happen? Well, guess what? It is happening:

         “Thus he said: ‘The fourth beast will be a fourth kingdom on the earth,[2] which will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth and tread it down and crush it. As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings. He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time…’” [Daniel 7:23-25]   

         Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. [2 Timothy 3:12-13] [3]  

         It is your choice as a real Christian to desist from serving the big boys and instead serve the Lord Jesus. It is your duty to serve only Him. If you do this you will suffer persecution, as all real saints always suffer, but you will also incur His blessing. And the greatest blessing of all is serving alongside Him in the greatest battle of all—the spiritual war going on all around us designed to rescue the lost, save souls, spread the truth, and bless His people.

         Mitt Romney is a Mormon. Mormon’s are not Christians. If you beg to differ it is obvious you have not studied Mormonism. The president is a 100% supporter of abortion, and it is impossible to be a real Christian and also support the butchering of tiny defenseless babies. Romney is a world-class gymnastic flip-flopper on abortion and has been pro-abortion in the past when it best served his interest.

         Ron Paul, however, is a real Christian. He is also 100% pro-life. He is a medical doctor who has delivered over 4,000 babies in his career and has NEVER performed an abortion. NOR HAS HE EVER SEEN THE NEED TO PERFORM AN ABORTION.

         The MSM is attempting to scam you. The Lord Jesus is attempting to bless you with Truth. Wake up. Read up. Pay attention. Get wise.

         Cast your nets on the right side of the boat.[4]

         See what the Lord sees.

Ron Paul, Follower of Our Lord Jesus—For Such A Time As This

Congressman Ron Paul of Texas

       The media has always painted Ron Paul as a candidate with no chance of winning and Americans in general have believed the false reports. The prejudice is obvious. When one seriously considers all the presidential candidates with respect to godly values and respect for the Constitution of the United States, he is the only candidate that will right the course of the country.

         Regardless of who is elected a year from now, America is set to continue going through very tough times as a nation. Our current course is simply unsustainable. The money men and politicians for the most part no longer care whatsoever about the country but only themselves. The power elite exist in a vacuum untouched by the reality most Americans face. They continue to feather their nests, bankrupt the country, and rob our children’s future.

         If any candidate other than Ron Paul is elected, I guarantee you it will be the same old same old. We must look past the outer media image of every candidate to see what they really are. Ron Paul has been consistent in his beliefs and statements for many decades.

         In case you are wondering, Scripture is very clear that the Lord definitely takes sides and chooses whom He will for his purposes. He always fights on the side of freedom. He suffered the worst punishment any man has ever suffered, became sin on our behalf, and defeated death for the purpose of granting us abundant life and freedom from sin and bondage. He continues to fight a worldwide spiritual war for the sake of our liberty.

         Our founding fathers were very clear on what they were fighting for during the Revolutionary War. Our forebears won our freedom. Since then, many very evil people have decimated the glory that was once America. At this point in history, we can choose to quit, to give up, to surrender all in thinking it is too late, or we can fight, against the odds, and restore the liberty, unity, and abundance this country once possessed. Voting for yet another elite politician who says one thing and does another will not get the job done. Has the last several years taught us anything at all?

         The following is Ron Paul’s personal statement regarding his faith and loyalty toward our Lord Jesus Christ. Please read it and consider the truth.

RON PAUL’S STATEMENT OF FAITH:

“I have accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior, and I endeavor every day to follow Him in all I do and in every position I advocate.”

My faith is a deeply private issue to me, and I don’t speak on it in great detail during my speeches because I want to avoid any appearance of exploiting it for political gain. Let me be very clear here: I have accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior, and I endeavor every day to follow Him in all I do and in every position I advocate.

It is God Who gave us life. As He is free, so are those He created in His image. Our rights to life and liberty are inalienable.

I’m running for President of the United States because I believe that our traditions and way of life are under attack from an out-of-control federal government and reckless politicians who show no regard for what our Founders entrusted to our protection.

America became the greatest nation in human history because a dedicated band of Patriots believed their God-given rights were worth fighting for, even if it meant challenging the world’s most powerful nation in what many deemed a “hopeless” cause.

Being free meant so much to our forefathers that they put everything on the line – and thousands sacrificed their lives – to give the promise of liberty to not only their children and grandchildren, but to generations they knew they would never even meet.

Their courage and determination guaranteed they would defy the odds and achieve victory.

In this critical election, you and I must decide if the principles of limited government and personal freedom are worth fighting for once again.

Since I’m asking for your vote and your trust to lead this nation, let me tell you a little bit about my background and beliefs.

My parents raised my four brothers and me on a dairy near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where they set clear examples for each of us about faith, honest living, and individual responsibility. Their Christian values helped inspire two of my brothers to eventually enter the ministry, and provided me with the foundation I needed to practice medicine and one day become a U.S. Representative.

In addition to my time in Congress, I am proud to have delivered over 4,000 babies as a country doctor in Texas. As I trained to practice medicine, I became convinced without a doubt that life begins at the moment of conception. I never performed an abortion, and I never once found an abortion necessary to save the life of the mother. In fact, I successfully helped women struggling with their pregnancies to seek other options, including adoption.

I am running to Restore America Now, and by that I mean that it’s time to protect and promote the basic God-given rights inherent in the promise of America.

We must pass on our heritage of liberty to the next generation – not tens of trillions of dollars in debt and liabilities.

We must stand for life – not allow millions of innocent children to continue to be slaughtered with the government’s approval.

We must follow the Biblical mandate of using honest weights and measures – not printing money out of thin air in almost complete secrecy and then handing it over to oppressive dictators.

We must only send our men and women to fight for our country when the mission is clear, every necessary tool needed to win is provided, and we respect the Constitution by declaring war.

Once war is declared, it must be waged according to Just War principles. We should only fight when it’s in our national security interest, and we should no longer do the corrupt United Nation’s bidding by policing the world.

In Congress, I never vote for any piece of legislation that violates the Constitution’s strict limits on government power. I also do not participate in the congressional pension system.

As President, I give you my word that I will only exercise my authority within the confines of the Constitution, and I will work every day to rein in a runaway federal government by binding it with the chains of that document.

For my stands and beliefs, I am told that my efforts are “hopeless.” Like those who were proud to stand up for what they knew was right to create our nation, however, I firmly believe that now is a better time than ever before to reclaim our liberties. No situation is hopeless for those who receive their strength from their faith, family, and freedom.

And like those Patriots, I have no doubt that liberty will prevail.

I invite you to join me and millions of other Americans in taking our stand to honor our forefathers’ sacrifices and Restore America Now.

For Liberty,

Ron Paul
