HOW LONG WILL YOU HALT BETWEEN TWO OPINIONS….


1 Kings 18:21“Elijah came near to all the people and said, ” How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.”

We are on the eve of one of the most critical elections our country has known and still there are those who are “undecided”. I cannot imagine that because the choices, at least in my thinking, are clear-cut. The scripture passage I listed above says it better than I could ever hope to, and the choices are just that clear. We, as Americans, have the choice of Freedom and Liberty or Socialism and Governmental Control of virtually everything. Indecision or straddling the fence is not an option!

It is not quite as simple as I am going to state it, but almost. If you like what is going on with our country then vote for the liberal left-wing party the democrats, and if you don’t then either vote for the republican or for the conservative candidate on the ticket who exhibits moral fiber and backbone. If you are more interested in a handout than a hand up then vote for the democrats on the ticket but if you want to move away for a welfare state and out of the entitlement society then vote republican or for the conservative candidate on the ticket that exhibits moral fiber and backbone. If you like big government, that controls virtually every aspect of your life, then vote for the democrats. If you want healthcare run by the government, want to be taxed into oblivion, want to see industry and manufacturing jobs continue being lost to overseas markets then by all means vote for the democrats. If you want people like George Soros, the Tides Foundation, MoveOn.org, Media Matters, SEIU, the Old SDS, Acorn, the American Communist Party and organizations like the New Black Panthers make the policy for this country, please vote for the democrats. If you want to see amnesty for the millions of “illegal” aliens who are in this country then you have only one choice, the democrats. But, if you don’t want those things and you want to see our country restored, the runaway spending train halted or at least slowed down then DO NOT vote for the democrats!

Is it that simple, basically, YES! The Obama administration has charted its course from the playbook of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”. The President taught from this book as a “Community Organizer” in Chicago and follows the script as the President of these United States. He has gone all over the world apologizing for America and has stated that we are not a Christian nation. He has favored our enemies and alienated our friends as well as having a misguided view of what America needs or has a view of an America relegated to third-world status. Either way, he and his policies are not good for America and on November 2, 2010 we have opportunity to take a small step toward stopping this attack on the Constitution and the attempted destruction of Capitalism and the Free Market. Even the European nations are beginning to realize that the tax and spend your way out of recession philosophy does not work and are taking steps to change their course, but this President insists on staying with that destructive agenda. Europe is beginning to realize that if they do not take steps to protect their citizens and countries they will find themselves living under “Sharia Law” and Muslim domination, but this President does not seem to believe that is the right course to take and continues to side with the proponents of this “religion” which wants to exterminate anyone and everyone not agreeing with their tenets and religious practices.

We, in my opinion, are at a crossroad between choosing good and evil, right and wrong, freedom and tyranny. Do I think the republicans will do everything right, no I do not but I already know the democrats will do the wrong thing, so I choose to take the step of putting Congressional control back in the hands of the republicans. It is a first step in a multi-step process to regain America’s values and restore adherence to the Constitution and the Republic that the founding fathers envisioned when they established this country. We have much to do and must hold politicians accountable for their actions and remove from office those who repeatedly take the wrong course. We need to monitor their actions and/or inaction as well as their voting records. If they represent us then we can feel comfortable sending them back for another term, if not then we help them find a new line of work by refusing to reelect them.

If I surround myself with people who are at best Socialist, who do not believe in America, the Constitution, and the Free Market and want to spend our great-grandchildren into oblivion while taxing us beyond our ability to sustain, then I am something other than a believer in a democratic republic. If I surround myself with people who are racist, anti-colonialist and support population control by means of euthanasia then I am not an American patriot. If I surround myself with people who want a world government rather than the sovereignty of this nation then I am not a believer in a Constitutional America. Those are the people who this President has associated and surrounded himself with and yet he claims he is a Christian, a patriot, and a believer in the free market. My question would be how does he expect us to believe this? Actions speak louder than words and his actions suggest that he is anything but a believer in America and yet he is President of these United States. He promised “Hope and Change” and said that he would “fundamentally change America”. I guess most forgot to ask what “fundamental change” meant. Apparently it meant to take down the American way, as we have known if for over 200 years and transform it into a “State Capitalist” system or “Socialist” soft Tyranny at best and a total dictatorship at worst. We failed to find out that it apparently meant government control of everything and governmental bureaucracies deciding every detail of our lives.

There can be no indecision! To be indecisive about God is to reject Him. To be indecisive about our freedoms is to lose them. To be indecisive about our liberties is to give them up. To be indecisive about protecting the rights of the unborn is to sentence them to death. To not vote, is in some respects, worse than choosing the wrong side, because it shows an ambivalence that is inexcusable. If you believe that this is all God’s doing and His judgment on this nation, that’s fine, it may well be. But, if you sit and do nothing you deny any possibility of His hand of judgment being stayed as it was for Nineveh and other cities and Peoples in the Bible, when they repented and cried out to God in prayer for mercy. You adopt a fatalistic attitude that is certain doom for this great land and I am not willing to take that stance. I believe that the Bible teaches that, “He who knows to do good and does to him it is sin.” (James 4:17) Jesus also said, “I wish that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.” (Revelation 3:15-16)

We have just a few days to decide, if we have not already! We have a few days to intercede concerning this election. We have just a few days to take a stand and lest we stand we shall surely fall. I would rather you be avidly for something than apathetically indecisive! Your vote matters and your involvement counts! This is your country as well as it is mine and it’s time we all rolled up our sleeves and got involved instead of allowing the politicians to make decisions for us that we may or may not agree with. I have decided to take a stand for representative government and will accept nothing less. I want to see God’s will done on Earth as it is in Heaven and know that my sitting idly by will not bring that about. Therefore, I choose to submit myself to His Lordship and commit to pray and follow the leading of my heart as a result of those prayers! I ask that you pray and become involved in our country and His Kingdom to whatever degree and at whatever level the Holy Spirit directs your heart.

May God bless you and God bless America!

    Excellent – very well written Roy. Very timely information. Keep up the great work. I am fowarding this to my dad, brothers, and cousin.

    Thanks for your well thought out opinion Roy. I have been thinking along the same lines for years. There is a great difference between a handout and a hand up. Handouts over the long term lead to dependency on the source of the assistance. A hand up enables one to better their own condition to the best of their efforts and ability. The latter leads to a long term improvement of lifestyle verses a life of substandard existence dependent upon substance that you do not earn for yourself. Like in eastern Europe once society becomes unable to continue support a large dependent class chaos ensues and the social structure itself collapses.

    Like the way you started with Elijah, little brother. That passage comes from one of my favorite passages of the Old Testament. I can just see him standing there, telling them to pour more water on his offering before he asked God to burn it up. This just goes to show that unwavering faith in God brings the confidence that God will prevail in the end. Keep the faith—- Lester
