I can't think of any other explanation for the horrendous things happening in Washington. The chaos and evil thinking that is permeating in Washington must be due to toxic waste in the water!
I can't imagine any sane "TRUE American" that believes in Freedom ever voting for or even considering the horrible acts in these bills.
I don't like being the "sky is falling" type person. I like citing examples of love and positive statements on Christianity. If I had to pick a movie character I most identified with - it would be Pollyanna. Pollyanna was a sweet little missionary's daughter who changed an entire town with her "glad" game. It's much more fun and psychologically satisfying to be the bearer of "glad" news.
Unfortunately dear friends, If I'm not honest with you about what I see - we could face tortures that this country fought and died to prevent. I know this will be long - but please bear with me and protect your children by reading this entire post.
Let's take a quick look at Hitler. Hitler's motives and dastardly deeds could be clearly seen by other countries. (How many other countries have asked us to stop all this spending?) His awful atrocities and philosophies were in plain sight to everyone except the German people. He had a way of cloaking himself so they couldn't see what he was really doing.
He made promises - lots of promises. And if you read his statements and investigate even a little history you will find that time after time he told an out right lie in order to gain the approval of his people but when it came time to produce what he had promised - he looked the other way.
I don't want to spend a lot of time giving you a history lesson in Nazi torture - but he assured the German people that the Jews were simply being taken to "Paradise Ally" or a beautiful place where they would be properly cared for. Instead the Jews were herded into concentration camps and gas chambers. I watched one American Armed Services movie showing Hitler yelling at other nations, "I did not invade Poland - she invaded Germany. We were only protecting the motherland."
In fact...one of his famous sayings was:
If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed. Adolf Hitler
Even more disturbing are these Hitler quotes. Take a moment to think about them:
Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way round, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise.
The art of leadership...consists in consolidating the attention of the people against a single adversary and taking care that nothing will split up that attention.
What good fortune for governments that the people do not think.
It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge.
It is not truth that matters, but Victory.
Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.
He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.
It's this last quote that disturbs me the most. Why?
Go back over this list and apply it to the Washington of today. I'm not saying that they are a bunch of Hitlers, but their tactics do make you wonder what's going on.
The American people have been sold a bill of goods. We've been told that the government is the "only" source for solving our problems. We vote against gay marriage and then judges rule our votes as unconstitutional. We don't want to have government control of our banks and private business and yet....it is. We realize what's happening and we hold protests that are not only ignored - but are criticized and rather than applauded as free speech, we are called racists and low life.
The media is basically on board with every liberal idea and supports anything coming out of Washington.
Judges like Sotomeyor are trying to legislate and change our society from the bench rather than adhering to the constitution.
And History is being changed in school textbooks to conveniently paint American freedoms as out of date and unfair.
The Administration wants us to give up all our guns, our private businesses, our health care, our freedom of speech and our brains. Now they want our children.
Want proof? How many times has government or courts sided with the "extension" of a law rather than the "stated" law?
Here's an example. A thirteen-year-old boy in Washington State was removed from his parents after he complained to school counselors that his parents took him to church too often. His school counselors had encouraged him to call Child Protective Services with his complaint, which led to his subsequent removal and placement in foster care. It was only after the parents agreed to a judge's requirement of less-frequent church attendance that they were able to recover their son. More examples at http://parentalrights.org/ under the "learn" tab.
There is nothing expressed in the Constitution or in the Bill of Rights that would allow the courts to take a child from his family and make demands on the "faith" of that family. How did the government do this? By "interpreting" rather than sticking securely within the written constitution. Most liberal thinkers know that unless they capture the hearts of our children they will not be able to continue with their march to a Godless society. Remember Hitler's quote... "It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge."
Now shift with me to the Health Care Bill. If you think your future has been derailed with the stimulus bill - you ain't seen nothing yet!
You can go to this website and see the entire bill explained line by line by attorneys at Liberty Council. http://www.liberty.edu/media/9980/attachments/healthcare_overview_obama_072909.pdf

Still not seeing it??? Our government has already made huge advances into our personal choices through taxes, religious persecution and the loss of free speech. But, even if you can't bring yourself to believe in a big bad government machine - think just a moment about the "new" black panthers that stood outside a voting poll and intimidated voters. They were indited by the state but released from all charges by the Federal government. Those guys will be part of the Americorp the administration is talking about. Those men along with Acorn will be the ones knocking on your door and intimidating you to fill out 28 pages of census - including your religious affiliation and what time you get home from work.
Suppose the government in it's great wisdom decides to hire homosexuals to positions of The Home Visitation Program. Their power is not spelled out in this document. That leaves plenty of room for the Administration to widen their powers.
This individual comes in to inspect your home and finds out that you are a Christian and teaching your child that the gay lifestyle is wrong. He demands that you teach your child differently. Where do you go? Do you risk having your child taken away and waiting on the courts to return him or do you try to file a complaint that may or may not be viewed by a person that will be sympathetic to your views? What will you do if this in-home advisor wants you to stop discipline or thinks a little teen sex is okay? What will you do if he thinks your discipline is wrong and his is right?
If you think for just a minute about how an unscrupulous person can use these proposed laws - it's frightening.
Please listen to Glenn Beck or some other personality and let's unite while we still can. Call Washington and demand that they throw this monster away. Write washington. Pass the blog to your friends. Vote differently in 2010. Don't wait for someone else to do what you should be doing. Everyone MUST be involved!
And of course....Pray, pray, pray. We can't let the take over of our country and our freedoms happen without so much as a whimper. I've included several links in the sidebar of people that will keep you informed.
"Dear Heavenly Father, you have allowed this country to prosper and become a great nation because we began with you and your values. Please help all those who love America to know what to do and give us the strength to do it!"
God loves you and God does love America.
