THE QUESTION LOOMS – Do People Really Care?


I realize that the title demands an explanation.  Do people care about what?  Who are the people being spoken of?  What is the context of the discussion?  All those are valid and questions deserving of answers.  Therefore, if you will, please give me a few minutes of your precious time, I will try to articulate my question by relating it to the current situation in America and even the Church.

Many things have come to my attention and not escaped my observations over the past few years that gave rise to my question about caring.  But one of the most recent was when Democratic Representative Jim Clyburn, the Donkey Party’s most senior voice made an alarming confession.  Yet so many of them are being reelected.  That makes me ask, “Do People Really Care?”

The illustrious Representative appeared on MSNBC before the election and this South Carolina Democrat admitted that the Biden administration and congressional Democrats knew that certain actions they were going to take and were taking would drive inflation up.  Wow!  He said, “Well, let me make it very clear.  All of us are concerned about the rising costs, and all of us knew this would be the case when we put in place this recovery program.  Any time you put more money into the economy, prices tend to rise.”  Basically, admitting that their spending plan was going to hurt everyone.  But people still elected so many of them.  “Do People Really Care?”

Are we so partisan that no matter what the elected officials of our party do, we will still vote for them because they are members of our party?  Do we care more about party affiliation than actions?  Do we care more about who is granted the power to run our government, than what they are or will do?  Do we believe that we are winning when we give up our freedoms and dreams to keep them in power?  “Do People Really Care?”

They knew all of them, all of the Democrats in Congress KNEW that their plan was going to cost you and me dearly.  They knew and yet they still did what they did.  It was not necessary.  The economy did not have to be shuttered.  The Oil and Gas Industry did not have to be decimated.  The price of gasoline did not have to go through the roof.  The energy did not have to be driven to the point that some have to choose between food and energy.  The costs of goods and services and thereby the cost of jobs did not have to occur. They knew what they were doing would cripple America’s economy, but they did it anyway.  Therefore, “Do People Really Care?”

I would readily acknowledge that I have strong doubts that Joe Biden has a clue where inflation comes from or how the economy works, based on his four-plus decades of cognizant disconnect with reality.  However, I do believe that members of that party such as Representative Clyburn are smart enough to know and yet they did what they did with full knowledge of the damage it would do.  Therefore, I ask again, “Do People Really Care?”

When Tulsi Gabbard ditched the Democrat Party, I wondered if this was an example of the rats abandoning the sinking ship seeking survival or if was this because she cared.  I cannot honestly say that I have a definitive answer, but I hope it is a sign that some still have a shred of allegiance to the Constitution and the Republic.  Time will tell, but do we have the time to wait for the answer?

She said that she was leaving the Democratic Party because of “cowardly wokeness” that “radicalizes every issue” and divides Americans needlessly.  She may have been referring to things such as former President Barack Hussein Obama’s speech at the Copenhagen Democracy Summit behind closed doors where he sought to radicalize the fact that many Republicans disagree with him.  How dare they?  Disagree with The One!  That is unforgivable to the Donkeys.

He said, “Sometimes it turns out they’re mean, they’re racist, they’re sexist, they’re angry.  Your job is to just beat them because they are not persuadable… Sometimes we get filled up with our own self-righteousness.  We’re so convinced we’re right that we forget what we are right about.”

That is so full of hubris and self-exaltation that it deserves no comment.  But he is right, they are incredibly self-righteous, and they project what they are doing onto their political opponents.  Tragically, too many just do not seem to care, drink the Kool-Aid, regurgitate the talking points, and vote no matter what negative actions their party takes.  It causes me to wonder if People Really Care.

Does the Black Community care that their party of choice the Donkeys exhibit incredibly insensitive racism behind closed doors?  An example in point would be the Los Angeles Democrat, Nury Martinez, and two others were caught on tape comparing a two-year-old Black child with a monkey, saying in a prima facia call for violence against the child, that he needs to be ‘beat down.’ 

An example of ‘cowardly wokeness’ is that the Democratic Party has been in control of the White House and both Houses of Congress for two years and none of them have the gonads to oppose the destruction.  Inflation, under this administration and with the approval of the Democrats in Congress has soared from 1.4% in January 2020 to over 8.5% now.  That is a 40-year high and may go even higher before they are evicted from Washington if they are.  Will they be?  Only if “People Really Care?”

The Border fiasco is bringing chaos to many segments of our Republic and will only grow worse for the next couple of years.  Crime is escalating, especially in the Sanctuary Cities and States and in the Deep Blue Cities run by the Democrats, and will continue into the foreseeable future.  Unless?  Unless people begin to Really Care!

In the midst of all this, the inept person occupying the White House continues to give incoherent drivel revealing that he has no clue where inflation comes from or what to do about it, or any other problem now facing us.  Yet, many of them continue to be elected.  “Do People Really Care?” 

Biden insists that this was all caused by the Republicans, Putin, Climate Change, COVID, or something, but not him or his fellow Donkeys.  He had the audacity to tell the Washington Examiner and the world, “If the Republicans take control, the prices are going to go up.”  Hey, Mr. Biden, where have you been – PRICES ARE UP and GOING HIGHER DAILY!  This is not under Republicans but you and your fellow Donkeys.

That is beyond idiocy!  People who are in the know such as Milton Friedman have declared that Inflation is ALWAYS and EVERYWHERE a monetary phenomenon.  Friedman was the author of the Regan Revolution’s Economic strategy.  The policy helped us claw our way out of the Jimmy Carter era of inflation and stagflation.  A smaller government, not a gargantuan government is the answer, as any reasoned economist knows.  Politicians know it too, but they want the power and control afforded them in the behemoth now existing.  Buying votes through handouts is probably here to stay.  It will stay until “People Really Begin to Care.”

Biden and the Left keep telling us that we can spend our way out of this mess.  I am convinced that a 5th Grader would know better.  Their insane spending keeps driving the CPI up and inflation keeps rising hurting every American who works for a living or worked for a living and pays taxes.  If you have been to the gas station, the grocery store, had any work done or purchased lumber or virtually anything else, you know better!

God help us to begin to care and awaken from our political stupor and as the old cliché goes, “Throw the Bums Out.”  Maybe we are not desperate enough and until a greater degree of desperation occurs, we will likely see the continuation of the lunacy reelecting the perpetrators of the destruction.  I am praying for people to wake up and begin to really care!

God bless you and God bless America!

BOYS TO MEN and THE AMERICAN CULTURE…


Yes, I am aware of the boy band Boyz to Men. However, I could not tell you one song they sing or sang.  If you like their music and music of the genre, that is your choice, my taste is different.  However, music is not my focus in this article, it is the development of our children into productive mature citizens who contribute positively to society and hopefully the Kingdom of God.

I grew up in an era when boys were able to observe men, not women wanting to be men or men wanting to be women.  We saw real men living their lives, loving their wives, and working for a living.  We saw their pain and disappointments as well as their victories through the strength of their character.  I was extremely blessed to have two men, in particular, in my life that shaped my view of manhood powerfully.  Those men were my earthly father, W.P. Beaird, Jr., and my maternal Grandfather, Charlie Randolph Kellum.  Both were strong men of integrity.

In today’s society young boys and young girls are not always afforded the privilege of growing up in a home where there is both a father and mother and are often left to fend for themselves.  They are babysat by the television, computer, internet, smartphone, and video games, and influenced by outside forces including their peers who are following the same path in life. 

In their most vulnerable years, they are subjected to the influence of groomers and the nefarious who want to capture their hearts and minds and mold them into the image of the toxic ideology of the day.  Children observe and it is a scientifically proven fact that observation is a significant part of development and learning.  If exposed to the toxic influence of hate, anger, bitterness, violence, and anxiety the development tends to produce adults with no strong moorings to help them navigate the difficult path of life.  Those are among the ones who commit gross acts of violence and vehement crimes. 

We have gone through a period where those in control of education and those following the ideology of liberalism have attacked strong males charging them with ‘toxic masculinity.’  I do not deny that some men develop into and choose the path of chauvinism and are abusers.  That is a heart condition that is developed early in childhood and only God can transform that heart into what a Real Man should be.

The participation trophy society, entitlement mentality, and the myriad of confusing demands pressed by those who seek to alter humanity negatively have brought us to this place.  We have gender confusion, a lack of any semblance of a work ethic, and a total devaluing of the home and the role of the father.  I praise God for the godly mothers who have shouldered the burden of raising children alone and done a spectacular job.  But the family as God designed it and in its best state has a godly mother and father in the home teaching and training the children.

If we allow our society to develop where being a man is a negative thing, we will watch a decline in every other aspect of society.  Violent crime is running rampant in America today.  It is easy to blame the tool of choice as the problem and put a Band-Aid on cancer and see the malignancy grow worse.  There is factual data that reveals that guns are the least used tool in homicides in America.  I draw my information from some overlooked and little-reported data compiled by the FBI.  Imagine that.

When academics such as Harvard University’s Dr. David Hemenway misapply data and cite statistics to support the leftist’s ideological cause, we are endangered greatly.  He reported that there are 250 people shot each day in the United States.  He claims that children 5-14 years of age are thirteen times more likely to be killed by a gun than children in other high-income populous countries. That is fallacious and advances the myth of the danger of the inanimate object, the gun.

The reports have been advanced that 74% of the time a gun was used in a homicide.  That came from an FBI 2019 report.  The claim is that the United States outranks most of the nations of the world in gun violence.  Is that factual?  Let us consider it briefly.  Is America a violent nation based on the cherry-picked statistics and data being used?

I will not win friends on the Left, but my answer is NO!  The truth is, using the FBI’s own data that homicides comprise 1% of the violent crimes in America.  That same report from the FBI indicated that 78% of the violent crimes in the United States were committed WITHOUT a gun.  Therefore, about 8 in 10 violent crimes in America do not involve a firearm. 

If you include the reality that America is one of the few countries that constitutionally allows its citizens to keep and bear arms, the fact we have more firearm deaths should not be a surprise.  You might compare that to the reality that Egypt has more deaths from people falling from a pyramid than any other country.  Do we ban pyramids?

What does the FBI include in their definition of a violent crime or aggravated assault which comprises about 66% of all violent crimes?  Amazingly, in those aggravated assaults 72% of the time there was no gun used.  Someone said, “The only difference between a murder/homicide and an aggravated assault is whether the victim lives.” 

Using those statistics, the percentage of guns used in homicides reportedly 74% tumbles to 77% of aggravated assaults and homicides combined reveals that a gun was not involved.   The FBI defines violent crime as including homicides, aggravated assaults, rape, and robbery.  Their own report indicates that there are fifty times more aggravated assaults than homicides in America.  But if you want to skew the statistics you ignore select portions of the data.

What does this have to do with boys becoming men?  Everything!  In my young life, it was common to see a firearm hanging in the back window of a pickup truck.  We did not cower in fear of being shot at school, church, or anywhere.  We lived in a time when God was honored or at least acknowledged, respect was demanded by parents, and children were taught the value of working for what they earned and respecting others and private property. 

Today we have a president who exhibits the traits of a pedophile and has an inordinate interest in young girls.  He appears frequently delusional and out of touch with reality and the truth.  We have politicians making laws that attempt to force boys to become demasculinized and reject their role in the family.  We have allowed the indoctrination of entire generations with a fallacious history, rejected God, and promoted lifestyles that are anathema to strong families and thereby strong men and women working in tandem to train their children to become strong and productive men and women.

If we do not return to God and to the moral foundations upon which America was first established, we will watch this nation plunge into such darkness that we will be no better than the most heinous despotic regimes of the world.  Can we turn this ship around?  Only, and I repeat, only if we restore the family, allow boys to become men and girls to become women.  Only, if we return to God and the moral principles taught in the Bible.  Only if we restore the value of life – ALL LIVES.  Only then, can we hope to see restoration and reclaim the propitious smiles of heaven on America!

God bless you and God Bless America!

THE DAY THE DOLLAR DIED…


That is the title of a book written by Canadian Evangelist Willard Cantelon wrote three books on global economics, The Day the Dollar Died, New Money or None, and Money Master of the World.  He lectured at civic, university, and church gatherings all over the world.  I borrowed his title as the subject of my article to serve as a catalyst for the diabolical actions of the current president advancing the globalist agenda to destroy America. 

How do you destroy the arguably greatest county in the world?  There are many tentacles to that monster of destruction and one of them is to kill the dollar.  I have contended that Joe Biden is suffering from a form of dementia but is also firmly entrenched in a decades-long agenda to fundamentally transform America and free market capitalism.  One of the pathways that he and they believe is the most viable is to make the American dollar worthless and replace it.

Are you aware of Executive Order 14067?  On March 9, 2022, he signed that Executive Fiat with little notice or fanfare.  How it escaped the Republicans in Congress and the watchdogs for Conservatism, is questionable.  Fox News, to their credit, did call it ‘deeply troubling.’  Within the verbiage and power laced in the order, it becomes an incredibly dangerous and sinister pathway for total government control of our money and our freedom. 

Some analysts suggest that this Executive Order makes provision for the government to engage in legal surveillance of every U.S. citizen.  If that does not get your attention, you might want to check your pulse.  It paves the way for them to have total control over our bank accounts and purchases.  We know the $600 ceiling on purchases before the IRS examines them behind the scenes.  This is not headed in a positive direction.  There is also the pathway to censor and silence all dissenting voices permanently.  Yes, I said permanently.  Do I have your attention yet or are you deeming me a conspiracy kook and discarding my warnings?

Do not take my word for it.   Some people who have inside information are also sounding this alarm.  Jim Rickards, a well-known economist, and former advisor to both the CIA and the Pentagon also see this as incredibly dangerous and sinister.  He believes it is a threat to every American citizen and that it could and probably will mean the end of the U.S. dollar as we know it. 

Mr. Rickards called it the ‘3rd Great Dollar Earthquake’ and believes it is in the process of becoming a reality.  According to him, the 1st was when Roosevelt confiscated private gold in 1934.  The 2nd was when Nixon abandoned the gold standard in 1971 and this would be the 3rd and final straw that breaks the camel’s back and kills the dollar.  I hope he is wrong, but believe he is on the money in his predictions.

Should we be concerned about a cashless society?  Should we be concerned about a World Government?  Should we be concerned about the moral breakdown in America and the genocidal shift through the abortion industry that has anesthetized us to the horrors of taking an innocent life?  Should we be concerned about the push for a gender-neutral society and the encouragement of gender confusion in our children?  Should we?  If we are not, then we are not paying attention.

We have been dumbed down so significantly in America that we accept high school graduates receiving a diploma without being able to read at a cognitive level.  We have so devalued math, history, civics, and English that many cannot function without Google or electronic devices.  We have allowed ourselves to be manipulated with paranoia and fear in so many areas that we are becoming a non-functional society.  We are rapidly heading toward being a society that needs specific daily instructions from the government or some power to guide us through the day.

Take the ludicrous idea that man has pushed the planet that has existed for at least 6,000 years and according to some billions of years to the point of destruction.  Seriously?  We are going to believe that this planet that has survived splendidly is in danger unless we go Green, recycle every can and bottle, eat less meat, and eradicate bovine flatulence.  Are we that gullible or simply that lazy and dumb? 

How could supposedly intelligent people ignore science regarding that entity in the womb (baby) and not acknowledge that it is a developing human being?  How could we ignore the DNA and Chromosomes that distinguish male and female and realize that both science and the Bible identify two genders – male and female?  Have we become so indoctrinated and brainwashed by decades of inane ideas through the educational system that we now have true intelligence lower than a braying donkey in the wild?

I have always believed that if a person has any reasonable amount of intelligence and will pay attention, they will see the light and change their minds.  Today, that seems to be a relic of ancient history.  We have people, who even though they see with their eyes, but cannot see.  Even though they hear with their ears they do not hear, or they fail to connect the dots.  Well, more likely, they are ideologically entrenched in a particular political persuasion and too prideful to acknowledge their error.  That is dangerous!

Joe Biden is closing in on 100 Executive Orders if he has not already passed that mark and it is costing the American Taxpayer an exorbitant amount of money.  It is also threatening our republic and our freedom.  Why are more people calling attention to the destruction?  I had one person tell me, “Well at least he isn’t Trump?”  Seriously, that is your justification for accepting his damage like a docile sheep in the fold. 

Remember Barack Obama famously declared, “I’ve got a pen and a phone.”  Well, Mr. Biden had surpassed Obama in his use of Executive Fiat and is ruling this nation with his pen.  Albeit many of his orders are illegal and unconstitutional, unless someone in Washington challenges him, he and they will continue.  He has already cost us $1.5 trillion according to most reports.  That is destructive and weakens the foundations of America.

According to some analysts, a so-called budgetary impact analysis accompanies each executive order but does not include actual monetary costs.  I wonder why?  It allows them to conceal the true impact and damage.  The Executive Orders usually contain vague language supposedly telling us if the order will have an impact on, increase or decrease federal costs.  Of course, they increase costs.  Reducing expenditures is not a part of the DNA of the Democrats and most Republicans in Congress.

The Inflation Reduction Act could prove to be the nail in the coffin of our American economy.  Executive Order 14067 will work hand in hand with that and the 87,000-armed IRS agents, the FBI, CIA, Homeland, and the NSA to bring us under the thumb of the federal government.  If they control our money, they will control us. 

We must stand up and resist and the most prolific pathway we have is at the voting booths.  Remember in November that we are voting for America and Freedom not simply particular candidates.

God bless you and God bless America!

WILL HATE DISSIPATE NOW THAT THE ELECTIONS ARE OVER?


If you believe in unicorns and own a couple of flying pigs, you might say, yes.  The extreme left believes that the only hate that exists is that which comes from those opposing them.  They see nothing in what they do or say as being laced with hate.  Are they delusional?  I do not know, but I do know they are living in an alternate universe where reality and honesty are non-existent. But to be fair, there are some on the extreme right that view everything through their prism of ideological narrowness.

Before the election, Ohio Democrat Representative Tim Ryan demonstrated that lack of contact with reality and a lack of cognizance regarding hate.  He said, “Kill and Confront the extremist movement of which J.D. Vance, unfortunately, is a part.”  What movement is that?  It is those who want limited government, wants the Rule of Law to be enforced, support the constitution, and back conservatives.  Those are the ones that Congressman Ryan thinks should be killed. 

But that is not hate, right?  That is not incendiary rhetoric, right?  He claimed to be seeking the support of Trump voters and he spews that kind of hate-filled vitriolic rhetoric.  Who in their right mind would support any candidate that openly advances the idea of “killing” their opponents? That is not a Free Constitutional Republic but a despotic third-world atmosphere.  For him, if you question the validity of the last presidential election you deserve to be killed.  If you support limiting or banning abortions, they believe that you should be killed.  How is that not identified as hate?

We have a major political party that has embraced the ideas of Marxism, Socialism, and Fascism.  They hate our Free-Market Capitalism and want to punish those who have excelled in business and made money.  They have abandoned science and medical realities that have existed for centuries and the biblical declaration regarding gender.  There are two and only two – Male and Female.  There are not scores of varying genders based on what someone concocted and decided they should be called.

The Left has targeted parental rights and responsibilities as dangers and their infringements upon immature children and is embracing the groomers. They are advancing the idea that children, who hardly know the difference between boys and girls should have ideas of gender confusion pressed upon them.  If parents protest, they have deemed domestic terrorists and a threat to democracy whatever that might mean when used by the Left.

Marxists’ views crumble without the legions of foot soldiers to advance their cause.  We are seeing the production of a massive army of brainwashed through our institutions of higher learning.  The frightening thing about that is that those are the ones in a decade or two who will be running the country.  When education was coopted, and the systematic indoctrination of revised and rewritten history was introduced we opened a door to our own destruction. 

The public schools from kindergarten through higher education’s advanced degrees are inundated with destructive fiddle-faddle and utopian rhetoric.  Our founding is lambasted as evil and anything or anyone who is a white male who thinks must be either reprogrammed or eliminated.  We have produced generations who bought the drivel and now teach pushing the fallacious to the nth degree.  We have those indoctrinated in that rhetoric now in Congress, sitting as judges on the bench, teaching, and heading up corporations.  If you cannot see the danger we face, you are not paying attention.

Hate is, to the followers of the toxic brand of liberalism advanced by today’s Cancel Cultural Marxists and the Democratic Party, is one-sided.  Well, it is one-sided to them.  They believe they are justified in their hate, violence, destruction, theft, and inciting violence.  They believe the only racists are those who vote Republican or Conservative.  They believe that any Christian who does not bow at the altar of Abortion and stands in agreement with Gender Confusion, Climate Change, and radical hate-filled racial activists is evil and must be eliminated.  Please know, there is hate on both sides and it is wrong too!

Sadly, we have become a society where a sizable number have never escaped the adolescent years mentally or emotionally.  By that I mean we have a society where a majority seem to believe that they are right regardless of the facts or factual presentation of the evidence.  They believe that anyone not backing their ideological positions is wrong and poses a threat to them and society.  Therefore, harming their opponents is not hate, it is a public service.  That is insanity and it is hate.  A rose is a rose no matter what you call it.

These Leftists believe that they are the smartest people in the room. However, there are some narcissists on the Right who believe the same about themselves.  The haters seek those who will mindlessly regurgitate their palaver and spin their spin.  They want followers who do not think but robotically spout the preapproved chants and talking points.  If it is Trump, it is evil.  If it is conservative, it is evil.  If it is Pro-Life, it is against women.  If it Pro-Family, it is homophobic.  If it is for a secure border, it is xenophobic.  The list goes on.  They are right, everyone else is wrong and America must be fundamentally transformed.

They believe there are no moral absolutes and no absolute truth.  They demand that we follow the science and ignore the scientific data and the inconsistencies in their so-called scientific proofs.  They believe that Christians who stand for and seek to live according to the Bible are vile haters and must be marginalized at best and shut down completely at worst. 

They believe they are the victims and those of us who disagree with them are the victimizers.  They appear as the Athenians whom the apostle Paul addressed. They welcome any new thought that is other than biblical, moral, or factual. They like utopian theories and insist that if we are to be deserving of national sovereignty we must embrace every religion, every sexual preference, and certain brands of genocide, and reject everything that made America, America.

Gender dysphoria and transgenderism are now deemed normal.  How did we reach this place?  The answer to that also explains why hate will not dissipate regardless of who is in power in Washington.  We reached this place by pushing God out of our society, and out of the public square.  When that began to transpire there was a corresponding rise in the amount of moral decline, crime, and weakening of our societal framework and our governmental structure. 

Victims never see any fault they might have had, only the abuse.  I am not diminishing true victims, but our modern state of entitlement and victim mentality is the reason that hate will not cease.  So long, as people can justify their hate, hate will survive and thrive. 

If we want to return to the America we were founded to be and become a light on the hill shining into the darkness, we must return to our moral moorings.  I believe that means we return to God.  I believe that means all those who believe in God and prayer begin to intercede and refuse to become sucked into the black hole of hate and vitriolic rhetoric. 

I pray for America.  I pray for everyone living in America.  I pray that we will awaken from our slumber and demand that the politicians honor the constitution and once again recognize our inalienable rights.  Until we do that, we will continue down the path of hate and decline.  That will mean America is doomed, it is just a matter of when.

God bless you and God bless America!

THE VOTE IS IN – Now What?


I guess that depends on your perspective and political ideological aspirations.  I fully anticipate that the Democrats who follow the toxic liberal ideological views will press to increase taxes and strip us of more of our individual liberties and inalienable rights.  They will press for more gender confusion, political correctness, climate change adherence, and the move away from the abundance of fossil fuels.  They will continue to pursue their path to destroying our Free Market System of Economy and transforming America into more of a Socialist, Marxist, Fascist, and Totalitarian State. 

I would hope that the Republicans, especially those who believe in the Rule of Law and the Constitution would seek to shore up the weakened foundations of our Republic, reduce the size of government, reduce spending, and ensure that we maintain and enjoy our inalienable rights and individual liberties.  I would hope, but with the history of the GOP and the Donkeys in DC, I am not confident of that hope. 

However, I believe that God is still God and if we will follow the prescription of 2 Chronicles 7:14 and many other passages in the Bible we will open the door for His helping hand in our plight.  I am old enough to remember an America where people treated each other with more dignity and respect than the current condition. 

The comic strip Pogo declared, “We have seen the enemy, and it is us.”  In many respects, we have created the monster that we are not encountering in the federal bureaucracy and overreach of government. We allowed the activists and protagonists seeking to transform our Republic from a moral nation to an amoral or immoral one.  We have allowed those who detest everything of moral sanity, the Bible, God, and strong family to slowly evict God, the Bible, and moral reason from the public square.  That has opened the door for our plunge into a depraved state that is wreaking havoc in our society.

Every society goes through an evolutionary process morally, spiritually, politically, and socially.  There have been forces at work behind the scenes for decades to weaken the pillars of our American society and moral fabric.  In the 1960s we had numerous things that opened the door for the decline.  The sexual revolution transpired which was a direct assault on our faith and the strength of the family.  Along with that, the Supreme Court mistakenly took the Bible and Prayer out of the public school.  When I said took, it concluded that separation of church and state mandated that no organized prayer could be in the schools. The decline began.

With the decline in observance of God and His Word, and the shift in morals where sexual intercourse between couples was now openly and accepted outside of marriage, we laid the foundation for another door to be opened.  With the increase in sexual activity, the lessening of the importance of faith and the Bible, unwed pregnancies increased and the stigma and expectation of the couple getting married began to dissipate.  That was a natural precursor to the push for abortion to be the accepted outcome of an undesired pregnancy.

The Supreme Court ruled unconstitutionally that abortion was a constitutional right and made it a national issue rather than a state-by-state issue.  That instilled in our society a devaluing of life which when extrapolated reaches a horrifying situation toward which we are headed.  To further exasperate the situation, the Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriages, contrary to our historic position and the biblical directive were now legal.  This was a further weakening of the fabric of strong families and the institution of marriage between one man and one woman as biblically defined.

With the diminishing of our public consciousness of God, the Bible, faith, family, and life we have witnessed the growth of government establishing and expanding bureaucracies in an attempt to address the myriad of issues resulting.  The costs of those programs and bureaus have caused the growth of government to the behemoth size it is now.  The increased deficit spending has buried future generations in debt and destroyed the American dream for multitudes.

The natural result of an amoral or immoral society is increased crime, violence, and a growing lack of respect for others.  If the focus is on “me” and what I want, then there is a corresponding decline in “you” and what you want, need, or have a right to.  If you have and I do not, in that condition, it is easy to develop the mentality of entitlement and believe that by having, you are somehow evil and I am good, therefore, I deserve part of what you have.  That is an untenable condition for a civil society.

The Founding Fathers, following some precepts of the Bible and sound reason, acknowledged that all people are Created by God.  They recognized that from God we have certain inalienable or unalienable rights that no government or person has the authority or right to infringe upon.  Among those many inalienable rights is the Right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.  They developed the Bill of Rights to address several of those inalienable rights including freedom of speech and religion as well as the right to private property and the right of self-defense. 

Today’s Leftists do not believe the Bible, they consider the Founders errant in their views, and do not recognize God as the grantor of rights.  They believe that the government, meaning the central government in Washington, D.C. is the giver of rights.  In effect, they believe that the government is god and the government giveth and the government taketh away with regard to rights.  

The Left has openly supported and advanced the idea of redistribution of wealth, support of unending taxation claiming that it only affects the rich.  That claim is beyond fallacious and the idea of taking from one who earned or inherited wealth and giving it to those not producing is an untenable position that will destroy society.

America was the most unique form of government known at the time of its formation and still is.  Many nations have copied our system in a modified fashion and those living in squalor under socialistic and communistic systems know the value of freedom.  Sadly, in America, our politicians are largely professional layabouts, more like leeches than productive members of society.  They make their living not from their salaries but from the kickbacks and grafts that are prevalent in politics for those who play the game. 

Where do we go from here?  If those we have just elected do not do what is right, constitutional, and follow the rule of law, then we MUST, and I mean MUST find a way to primary the RHINOs and oust the Leftists in each succeeding election.  We must begin a campaign of involvement and renew our commitment to give oversight and stay abreast of what is happening in Washington.  Politics affects life and life is an inalienable right.

I want America to be the Republic we were founded to be.  I want limited government.  I want our inalienable rights recognized.  I want the politicians to become civil servants again and do our bidding, not pursue their personal or ideological agendas.  Do what is right and what your constituents voted for you to do.

America, we allowed this mess to become a reality, and now it is time to face the arduous task of correcting our errors.  We can but only if we return to God and unite as a voting bloc that gets their attention.

God bless you and God bless America!

TOMORROW WE VOTE…


Tuesday, November 8, 2022, is election day in the United States.  Many have already voted via early voting in person or via mail-in ballot.  There are many concerns regarding the integrity of this election due to the shenanigans in the last election.  If those in politics were genuinely interested in election integrity and one person-one vote the election judges and ballot counters would be balanced.  Sadly, that is not the case and in virtually every precinct there is a horrific imbalance slanted to one side or the other.

But, putting all that aside and hoping that there will be enough whistleblowers and enough boots on the ground, and eyes scanning the process we will have a reasonably legitimate election.  I do not like saying, reasonably legitimate, because that means it is anything but.  I am not settling but facing the facts and praying for divine oversight as well as political courage by those involved to do what is right.

I do not like losing and that includes politics.  However, if the election is fair, legitimate, without fraud, ballot stuffing, and fraught with any illegal votes, then if my candidate or party loses, I can accept that.  I will continue to speak out if I see things that are detrimental to our Republican form of government and our free market system of economics.  I will speak out when edicts, actions, or legislation tramples on our inalienable rights, biblical precepts, and our constitution.  I would expect that from any freedom-loving American.

We are voting in this election to determine which party controls the House and Senate.  The party in control of those houses of congress will determine if there is to be and can be any resistance to the agenda of destruction and transformation pushed by the party in power in the White House.  I do not consider Joe Biden the true leader of his party, but a figurehead and often an extremely incoherent one.  He reads what is on the teleprompter and frequently even the directions his handlers give him.

We have watched, during these past two years, our economy reduced to ashes, many of our freedoms infringed, and various bureaus of the federal government weaponized.  That should disturb those on the Left and the Right.  A rogue CIA, FBI, NSA, and IRS are dangers to the Republic and freedom.  If any of those entities amass enough power or form a cohesive coalition, they could launch a coup to take over our government.  When you add to that mix the continual revision of our military you should see a clear and present danger.

I do not believe that the Republican Leadership in Washington is significantly different than the Democratic side of the aisle.   However, I do believe there are enough races with candidates who are proving to be brave enough to be vocal and draw lines in the sand to prevent the continuation of our metamorphosis toward Socialism or Marxism.  If we can elect a sufficient number of those individuals, we can alter the power structure in Washington and move a step closer to the restoration of the Constitution and our Liberties.

We are voting on inflation.  If we allow the Democrats to maintain control of the House and Senate, we are voting for hyperinflation, stagflation, and the continued destruction of our economy.  We are voting to allow small businesses to be strangled with stifling regulations and mandates and to be forced out of business due to the ever-increasing costs of goods and services.  If we want to see a return to normalcy we must vote no on the Democrats, because they have proven they are willing to vote down the party line, regardless of the issue.

We are voting on Religious Freedom.  If we allow the Democrats to maintain control of the House and Senate, we are voting to allow the continued infringement upon our religious freedoms and our freedom of speech.  If we believe that churches and individuals should be allowed, as the Constitution asserts, to worship as their heart’s decree and follow biblical principles we must vote no on the Democrats.  They have demonstrated not only a willingness but a propensity to trample on our religious liberties.

We are voting on Border Security.  If we allow the Democrats to maintain control of both houses of Congress, we are voting to strip America of her sovereignty and make her a member state of the global government proposed and desired by the left.  If we want to see America secure, safe, sovereign, and able to defend itself we must vote no on the Democrats.  Their actions regarding illegal immigration, and border security, make our military a participant in the WOKE mentality and their actions reveal their intent.  If we want the America of yesterday and the America of our Founding, we must vote no on the Democrats.

We are voting on our Children.  If we allow the Democrats to maintain control of Congress, we are voting to expose our children to pedophiles, place them on the altar to Baal and offer them up to Molech as sacrifices.  We are voting to allow their pliable young minds to be molded to embrace the Revisionist, WOKE ideology, and force them to experience confusion as to who and what they are.  If we believe that parents should have the final say in the education and training of their children, we must vote No on the Democrats. They have demonstrated a willingness and desire to force our children into a state of confusion as to gender as well as sexual preference as a lifestyle. 

Children, who are not old enough to be responsible for themselves should not be exposed to the blatant confusion being pressed upon them by the groomers and toxic liberals.  We must fight for the children who are born and the children who are yet to be born.  We are fighting for Life. 

We are voting on America.  If we allow the Democrats to maintain control of the House and Senate, we may not have an America to vote on in 2024.  The course they are charting for America will radically move us toward a totalitarian despotism where Socialism replaces Capitalism and inalienable rights will be replaced with government rights.  We will find ourselves less free and more subservient to the federal government which sees itself as our benevolent benefactor.

What the federal or state government funds it controls.  If we allow ourselves to become dependent upon the government for our subsistence, we will be surrendering our freedoms, right, and liberties to those in control of the government.  We are voting on Life, Liberty, and the right to pursue Happiness.  We are voting on the American Dream.  We are voting on personal property rights and all our inalienable and constitutional rights.

We are voting on the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and all the Amendments.  How we vote will determine how far they will go to strip us of our rights.  Our vote matters and if we can evict enough of them and replace them with constitutionalists we have hope politically. 

Just in case you wonder how I have voted; I voted NO on the toxic liberal agenda.  Will I be faced with some difficult choices in voting?  Assuredly, but I will pursue the path that I believe best affords America and my home state of Texas to maintain freedom and liberty.  You can agree or disagree with me, that is your right, prerogative, and privilege.  I will defend that right. 

I pray that all of us have carefully vetted the candidates and the political parties they represent.  I pray that each of us has earnestly sought the mind of God in this election.  I pray that each of us will do our civic duty and vote!  When a small percentage of the electorate vote, we are allowing the few to determine what the whole should have with regard to government and individual liberties.  If I do not vote, I have no legitimate right to voice objections later.  I will cast my ballot and then resume my position of Watching from the Wall and sounding the alarm when I see the danger.

God bless you and God bless America!

REMEMBER WHAT WE ARE VOTING ON or FOR…


I believe that we too easily become distracted with personalities and side issues in our elections and that opens the door for the destructive policies of the transformers to become entrenched.  We focus on individual races rather than the Republic to our own hurt. 

I understand that it is in the individual races that we are able to cast our ballots for those we choose to represent us in Washington.  I do not mean to diminish that.  I also understand that we cannot vote in all the elections nationwide.  However, we can focus on the overall objective of the candidates and political parties and work through the means available to support or expose candidates and political agendas. 

I believe that dating back to the statement by Benjamin Franklin when asked at the constitutional convention, “Dr. Franklin, what kind of government do we have?”  He said, “A Republic, madam if you can keep it.”  The “if you can” is the decisive factor and sadly, we have too frequently lost sight of what we are to keep, how we are to keep it, and why it is imperative that we maintain oversight in our government.

Our national bureaucracy has been infiltrated by statists, globalists, and political activists seeking ideological agendas that are counter-republicanism.  They are anti-everything our founders proposed, established, and warned of the ease with which it could be dismantled.  We are voting for the Republic, Inalienable Rights, and Freedom.  I am soberly serious in that declaration.  Our individual and national freedom is hanging in the balance.

Under the current administration, we have watched our economy be reduced to ashes.  We have watched the mandates and restrictions based on incomplete and often inaccurate information regarding the pandemic caused by the Wuhan Virus (COVID-19).  We have watched from the national down to the local level politicians and bureaucrats seize the opportunity to impose their brand of totalitarianism and revoke our liberties.  They have infringed upon our constitutional rights and, initially, we sat in silence and complied like docile sheep. 

Over time, many that were seeking to be compliant began to realize that maybe, just maybe we had not been given full disclosure.  Many began to realize that the economy was needlessly shuttered.  As people began to feel the pinch at the pump for gasoline to power their automobiles enabling them to live their lives, work, and earn a living, they began to question their actions. 

We have observed the growing shortages in the healthcare industry, airline pilots, teachers, and a myriad of other occupations.  We have experienced the escalating prices of energy, food, clothing, and virtually every good and service we need to continue as a sovereign nation and individuals.  Virtually none of it was necessary and virtually every action was rooted in a political agenda and ideology that was the antithesis of freedom. 

I have heard the moans, complaints, criticisms, and vitriolic language in reaction to our current state.  I hear people gripe and lambast politicians from one party or the other without focusing on the root problem and the prime objective we should be voting on in November.

Yes, the power needs to be stripped from any politician or party that runs amok in an escalating push to fundamentally transform America.  Yes, to defeat as many of those as possible.  Yes, we need to focus on individual statewide races, governorships, legislators, and local politicians as well.  Yes, to all those.  If we give control of the House and Senate to the GOP, I am confident that we will see moderate resistance to the destructive policies now being enacted.

I wish I could say, the GOP will drain the swamp, dismantle the Deep State, and slam the brakes on the Biden administration’s trainwreck, but I try not to deal in fantasy.  There are too many establishment types in both parties who are peas in the same pod with different letters after their names. 

However, I do believe that we can send a message to Washington that will cause the career political elitists to take notice.  How?  We can become vocal.  We can become involved.  We can turn out to vote En masse and then volunteer as poll watchers and sound the alarm at every irregularity.  We can begin our campaign to flood the DC switchboard with phone calls.  We can fill the political email boxes with our vocalizations of what we desire and expect.  We can blow up their phones with our texts.

What is our message?  We want the Republicanism of the Founding Fathers restored.  We want the FBI purged of all political activists and agents of liberalism.  We want the IRS depoliticalized and to end the army of new armed agents who are willing to use deadly force on citizens.  We need to demand the restoration of the military to be the fighting force it was designed to be.  We need to demand a return to Constitutionalism. We want God to be honored in our public square.

Will our saying that is what we want, impress them?  Not by itself.  But if we couple that with putting our money where our mouth is and being persistent in our calls, texts, letters, and voting, we will cause a ripple in the political waters they cannot ignore.  We will not achieve our objective in one election.  We must become committed, like those valiant patriots in 1776 to fight to the finish.  We must become smarter than them and learn to listen to not only what they say but watch what they do.

We have been played by politicians and this occupant of the White House and his team have used racial hoaxes to accrue power since the inauguration.  Sadly the Left have weaponized race and their propaganda arms in the MSM parrot the claims that if you are not a Leftist Democrat you are a racist.  The propaganda is never ceasing, and more than two to one press releases have been issued by the DOJ regarding the J-6ers domestic terrorists.  Why?  Because painting all conservatives as insurrectionists is more politically profitable than focusing on real and present threats to our republic.

We have the FBI Swat Teams raiding the homes of Pro-Life citizens and organization leaders in the name of protecting our democracy.  It is a gross overreach of their authority and power and has the blessing if not the direction of the DOJ and the White House.  We have become a nation, like the despotic totalitarian regimes of communist and third-world nations, where our law enforcement, military, and bureaucracies are weaponized against the opposition of the party in power.  That is what we are voting on next Tuesday! 

Sadly, many in the religious world have joined forces with the Leftists and either misinterpret the Bible, the value of the home and family, and the moral fiber needed to survive as a republic, or they ignore those precepts.  We recently had the U.S. Catholic Bishops celebrating illegal immigration.  Some religious authorities are insisting that the Bible supports abortion when the Bible and virtually all ancient Jewish history reveal that abortion was considered murder and anathema to God’s commandments.

I know that some will take umbrage at my usage of the Bible, but it is the core of my personal beliefs, and I will not run from my beliefs.  I believe that God values life and freedom.  I believe that America was founded on principles embodied in the Ten Commandments and the biblical precepts regarding government and law.  If you disagree that is your privilege.

We are voting for the Republicanism of the Founding Fathers in this and every election.  I pray that you will become inspired, emboldened, and committed to the cause of preserving the United States of America and returning our culture to its moral moorings, which would be to return to God.

God bless you and God bless America!

OCTOBER SURPRISE – Weaponized FBI and More…


The infamous October Surprise that is always forthcoming during any election year seems to have been multiple things.  I am sure each person has their own view of what it was, even if it was not truly a surprise.  My thoughts on this matter have caused me to ask the question, “Is This America?”  What happened to the America of our Founding Fathers and the America of our fathers and grandfathers?

In 1908, the United States of America’s population had exploded, and it now stretched from ocean to ocean and Canada to Mexico.  We had inventions like the telephone and the telegraph making communications easier than ever.  Railroads had shrunk the enormous expanse from California to New York and America was wealthier than ever.  We had become a World Power thanks to our naval victory over Spain. 

Our growth and expansion had produced more than one hundred cities with populations over 50,000.  That seems insignificant today, but that was near the turn of the century, and with it came the ever-increasing problem of crime.  Organized crime through the mafia along with the terrible conditions for the poor in those cities presented a sizeable problem.  Those in government were hearing the pleas of citizens for something to be done.

Strikes and clashes between workers and corporations were becoming deadly and the growing power of Union Bosses often tied to the mafia was becoming a major concern. Political machines were becoming entrenched in power as was witnessed in the corrupt political machine of Tammany Hall.  Illegal monopolies were rising and with the growth of our population, the increasing size of our cities, and the corruption in politics, business, and the problem of organized crime, something was needed to bring a sense of safety to the citizens.

In 1908 there was no systematic method of enforcing the law across the vast American landscape.  What was to be done?  Many states and local communities had their own law enforcement agencies and often those were not well-trained or equipped.  The problem was growing and the call for action had reached a crescendo.  Anarchy was raising its ugly head, as the first modern-day domestic terrorists began to unite and create problems nationwide.

The shooting of President McKinley occurred in 1901 and Vice President Teddy Roosevelt was in the oval office.  He was a staunch advocate of the rising “Progressive Movement” and believed that the federal government had to become the guiding hand in law enforcement and oversight of the industrial complex.  He had served six years as Civil Service Commissioner in Washington and proudly declared, “we stirred things up.”  He served two years as the New York Police Department’s head. 

It was through President Teddy Roosevelt that the FBI would get its start.  He appointed a like-minded reformer as his second Attorney General, Charles Bonaparte.  It did not take long for Bonaparte to realize that his hands were tied in dealing with the rising tide of crime and corruption.  He had no team of investigators to call upon except for a handful of special agents.  With Congress rejecting Roosevelt’s quest for more power in the use of the Secret Service Bonaparte deemed it necessary to create his own force of investigators.  In June 1908, he quietly hired nine of the Secret Service investigators previously borrowed and combined them with twenty-five of his own men to form a special agent force. 

Congress did not object to this special unit and his successor George W. Wickersham, gave this band of agents their first name – The Bureau of Investigation.  For fifteen years operated under that name and although not powerful enough to withstand the influence of outside money and corruption, it continued.  New agents were poorly trained.

The FBI’s initial purpose was to investigate and prosecute criminals who evaded prosecution by crossing state lines.  In a few short years, the handful of agents had become more than three hundred and by the end of World War I, it was given the responsibility of investigating draft resisters, violators of the Espionage Act of 1917, and immigrants suspected of radicalism.

J. Edgar Hoover joined the DOJ in 1917 and in a brief time became special assistant to Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer.  He became the face of federal law enforcement during the “Red Scare” of 1919-1920.  He established a card index system listing every radical leader, organization, and publication in the United States and by 1921 had amassed over 450,000 files.  He had more than 10,000 suspected communists on his list.  The AG was criticized for abuse of power, but Hoover came out smelling like a rose, unscathed. 

In the 1920s with Congressional approval Hoover dramatically restructured and expanded the Bureau of Investigation.  It could be argued that he built an effective crime-fighting machine, but he also created an emerging monster with incredible power and authority.  The Bureau was initially created to fight crime and stem the rising tide of corruption in the United States. 

Today, that Bureau has become a politicized arm of the Leftist agenda and is out of control.  Among the many excesses and questionable activities of this federal agency transpired in March 2021.  Most Americans are probably unaware of how the FBI failed to disclose to the judge granting their warrant their intent to permanently seize valuables from citizens.  In that raid, they seized more than $86 million in cash, jewelry, and gold from 1,400 safe deposit boxes in a raid of a Beverly Hills vault company. 

The company pleaded guilty to the charge of conspiracy to launder drug money.  However, there were hundreds of private citizens whose assets were also seized and who were not suspected of any crimes, by the FBI.  That is according to court documents, yet their valuables are still being held illegally by the FBI.  They failed to tell the magistrate Judge Steve Kim, that they intended to keep all the assets in every safe deposit box containing more than $5,000 in cash or valuables.

We are all aware of the move against former President Donald Trump and regardless of what you think of him, you should be concerned about that raid, how it was conducted, and the apparent overreach involved.  Then, they went after Trump supporters in raids and confiscated phones, etc.  But it has not stopped there. 

The Pennsylvania pro-life activist’s arrest should raise eyebrows and concerns about the Gestapo-type tactics of overly dramatic actions and the targeting of individuals who do not follow the politically correct script.  They seem to be unconcerned about the escalation of attacks against pro-life pregnancy centers and violence against anti-abortion activists.  But are laser-focused on anyone supporting the Make America Great Again political ideology and who is pro-life?

Attorney General Merrick Garland and Christopher Wray have weaponized the FBI and federal law enforcement to persecute, harass and prosecute political adversaries and protect their fellow political partisans.  They ignore the threats toward Supreme Court Justices and allow those who commit acts of violence in the name of liberal activism to go unscathed. 

The October Surprise that I believe that the Left launched and that which we have only seen the tip of the iceberg is the rogue FBI.  What will come in November and during the elections and counting the ballots?  What overt action will transpire to keep power in the hands of the toxic liberal ideologist?  America, we are at war, and the war’s roots go far beyond the political into the spiritual.  We are fighting principalities and powers of darkness seeking to destroy this nation. 

It is time to fall on our faces before God and cry out for Him to send forth His light and expose the darkness.  It is time to return to our moral moorings and begin to invest and involve ourselves in the oversight of our government.  Freedom is hanging in the balance!

God bless you and God bless America!

THIS IS MY DECLARATION…


2 Timothy 1:12 – “…I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.”  NKJV

I believe in God and Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior!  I am troubled over what I perceive to be a lack of commitment in much of the Christian community today.  I know that sounds judgmental, but I honestly do not mean it to be.  I just question and do not understand some of what I see.  I am startled by the lack of vision for the whole and the abundance of vision for self that I hear in churches and from believers.

I could allow myself to think as I used to think before I experienced the Christ of the Cross.  I have an option to either blend in with the crowd and popular thinking or I can opt to swim upstream against the current of much popular thinking.  I choose to invite the Holy Spirit to enable me to think God’s thoughts!

I have been amazed at how many people come into local fellowships declaring that God has called them to be there and then depart over frivolous things.  I have witnessed people starting churches only to find it difficult and declare that God said to shut it down.  My question is always, “Did God instruct, you to do it initially?”  If so, does that mean God is fickle and changes His mind at the first sign of difficulty?  If the difficulty is a justification to quit, how did the early church survive?  James suggested we both expect trouble and respond to trials with joy for it is helping develop our faith and courage.

I declare today that I do not have all the answers and sometimes wonder if I have any answers.  However, I realize that I do not have to have all the answers.  I know the one who does!  I can trust God to be who He declared He was and is and rest confidently in the fact that He knows my need before I even pray.  I trust Jesus to be Lord! 

I make the choice to think according to the Word of God and base my thinking on what God says not how I feel, desire, wish for, or prefer.  I choose to adjust my life to fit what He says rather than try to adjust His word to fit my life.  I choose even when I cannot see in the natural and it seems the promise is delayed or will not come. I choose to believe in and trust God.

I choose to stand against the powers of darkness, not in my strength but on the basis of the shed blood of Jesus and His Covenant revealed in His word.  I choose to roll myself onto God and trust Him in all things and at all times. 

I choose to allow God’s word to adjust my thought processes bringing every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.  I confess that I have had a lot of practice in wrong thinking and now invite the Holy Spirit to reprogram my thought life.  I ask that He convict me every time I drift toward the old thought patterns and bring me into conformity with the Word and thereby transform my life.

That is my declaration today!  What is yours?   

May God be with you as you go through your day!

IT IS TIME TO GET OUT AND VOTE…


The question at this time of year in an election cycle is, “What Kind of Government Do You Want?”  Maybe a secondary question is, “What Kind of Government Are You Willing to Tolerate?”  The latter question might be more germane to the current political scene.  Why would I say that?  Because of our more recent history of apathy, animus toward a personality, and willing blindness to the destruction being done.  If that holds true, then we are in for at least two more years of abysmal economics and assault on our liberties. 

I believe that one of the major goals in every American election should be the defeat of Big Government Socialism.  However, many polls indicate that the thirty-five and under crowd largely support socialism of some form.  I believe that is because they do not have the experience or the understanding of what those entails.  Sadly, they are not likely to gain either between now and November 8, 2022.

Focusing on individual candidates will not achieve that objective.  We may defeat Joe Biden or whomever the Democrats offer in 2024.  We may defeat some of the main Democratic players and that will not do the trick.  We must have a workable, definable, and obtainable plan to ensure that Big Government Socialism cannot survive in America. 

That means we must develop the party platform to mandate that objective.  The Democrats will advance their brand of Socialism and their anti-capitalism agenda.  They will harp on their perceived horrors of not being able to kill babies in the womb, at will.  They will insist that man is destroying the planet and we must end all use of fossil fuels, turn to green energy, and inflict carbon taxes on businesses and the public.  They will insist value of grooming our children into transgenderism, homosexuality, and gender confusion.  Then they will offer their plans to tax us into oblivion and strip us of our inalienable rights. 

That should be enough to send every voter scurrying to vote the Leftists out, but unfortunately, millions agree with that ideological position.  We have a greater racial divide today than we have had in decades.  We have more toxic liberal activism today than ever in my lifetime.  We have more politicians concerned about their position, power, and purse than ever.  We have the establishment on both sides of the aisle hesitant to trim spending and reduce the size of the bloated entity called the federal government. 

It is way past time for modest reforms and token attempts to reduce spending, reduce the deficit, and loosen the grip of the federal bureaucracy on our lives.  It is time to radically transform the current government, restoring it to what the founder’s original intent was.  It was to be a limited government with specified powers and we the people were to be the true overseers and owners of the government.  They are supposed to govern by the consent of the people. 

Today, they do not care about the consent of the people and believe that there are no inalienable rights, only those deemed applicable and acceptable by the ruling class of elitist politicians.  It is time for that to end!  It is time to get out the vote and get out and vote!  In just days we will be going to the polls and casting our ballots for candidates who supposedly will do our bidding in Washington. 

Unfortunately, if history repeats itself many of those vocal and promising fresh faces will become part of the system shortly after being sworn in.  It may be money.  It may be coercion.  It may be the taste of power.  It may be grandiose views of their own political value.  It may be the influence of dark forces that seem to operate freely in DC.  Whatever it is, too many caves and go along to get along and we are left longing for that limited government we were promised.

The Founders feared an overly powerful Centralized Federal Government and what we have today would make them turn over in their graves.  We could turn back the clock and study the actions of both Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Regan in their drive to defeat Big Government Socialism.  Sadly, we have become a reactionary self-absorbed entitled society.  A people more interested in “what’s in it for me” than “what is best for the republic and posterity?”

If we have any hope of reversing the decades-long development of centralized power in Washington, we have to have a plan, and a strategy and articulate it as did both Thatcher and Reagan.  Thatcher condemned socialism as theft that was both unsustainable and immoral.  I agree with that assessment.  Eventually, you run out of other people’s money to pay the fare for free everything.  There are no free lunches, somebody pays for them.

Socialism has failed in every country that it has been attempted.  It is one of those ideas that may look workable on paper and even desirable until it is implemented and soon it wrecks the economy and destroys initiative.  In one of Thatcher’s speeches, she pulled out Friedrich Hayek’s 580-page ‘The Constitution and Liberty’ and slammed it on the podium declaring, “This is what we believe!” 

If we have any hope of salvaging the Republic known as the United States of America, we must develop a plan and articulate it everywhere.  We cannot be vague, and elected politicians must demonstrate a commitment to that vision.  Lip service is insufficient and will guarantee a rejection in the next election cycle. 

I am convinced that most Americans, at least those who work, pay taxes, and have to pay their own way are feeling the pinch.  I am convinced that most of those know that we had it far better before Biden.  They know that Biden’s plan is the Obama plan on steroids and is a train wreck.  Sadly, with Obama, it became an emotional issue based on race rather than actual policy and what was happening.  With Biden, those of us who oppose his agenda and that of his party are deemed, domestic terrorists, misogynists, xenophobes, racists, deplorables, haters, and semi-fascists. 

What do we need to do to salvage America, defeat Big Government Socialism and return to being the Republic our Founders established?  There are numerous things, and I cannot list them all, but some highlights would include:

  • We must control spending, bring down the cost of living and balance the budget.  That will never happen if we stay with baseline budgeting rather than going to a zero-based budgeting process.
  • We must restore our energy independence.  We can and should develop alternative energy, but we should not destroy our economy and lives by forcing the transition. 
  • We must secure the border.  A nation that does not have a secure border is not a nation and faces incredible national security threats daily.
  • We must enforce the law and keep violent criminals in jail and back law enforcement while making any necessary adjustments in policies or personnel.
  • We must focus on restoring the family and parental control of the lives of their children.
  • We must restore education to teaching real history not a revised, sanitized, or politicized brand.  The truth is the truth, and it will free us to move forward.

I plead with every legal American voter to examine the facts and stop allowing your bias to dictate your vote.  I urge everyone to reject the fallacious promises of the socialists and those who want to make America something other than what it was founded to be.  I urge everyone to carefully study the party platforms and then vet the candidates and be prepared to hold their feet to the fire.  We must reassume responsibility and become determined to hold ALL politicians accountable.

Lastly, we need to return to God and restore His rightful place in our society and seek to strengthen the family unit where there is a father and a mother in the home.  We did not get where we are overnight, and we will not dig our way out of this state of depravity and declension overnight.  We have a colossal task in front of us and I pray that as those patriots in 1776, we will rekindle the flame of freedom in America!

God bless you and God bless America!
