Dr. Benjamin Carson

When our forefathers knelt and prayed for wisdom at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787, then stood up and together assembled a seventeen-page document known as the Constitution of the United States of America, they were clearly guided by the hand of God.

Today the forces of political correctness would expel God from every public sphere in American life, and the hearts and minds of every man, woman, and child in America are up for grabs in this cataclysmic battle between the lovers of men and the lovers of God. Some would rather never choose between the two, but life is full of choices, and our individual and collective choices determine the quality of our existence.

I believe it is time for us to stand up and be counted. We can no longer be passive because the Judeo-Christian way of life in America is at stake. We need not be ashamed of our faith, and we certainly should not allow those who believe differently to change who we are in order to be politically correct.

Yes, we should accept them with brotherly love as we have been taught, but we should never compromise our belief system. We do believe in God, and we do believe in the right of everyone to have life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We do believe in an orderly government that facilitates these goals rather than impedes them.

It is time to set aside political correctness and replace it with the bold values and principles that founded our nation and caused it to race to the pinnacle of the world faster than any other nation in history. It is time to stop apologizing and to start leading, because the world is desperately in need of fair and ethical leadership. If that leader is not America, then who will it be, and where will they lead?

If we apply logic to solving our problems and add the godly principles of loving our fellow man, caring about our neighbors, and developing our God-given talents to the utmost so we become valuable to those around us - allowing these values and principles to govern our lives - then not only will we remain a pinnacle nation, we will truly be "one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

It is my prayer, America, that God will continue to shed his grace on thee, and crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea. I pray that with his blessings our past will be but a stepping stone to a bright future and that our best days will truly lie ahead of us - a beautiful new beginning! -- Dr. Ben Carson, M.D., America the Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made This Nation Great, 2012.

Quote Samuel Adams

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands [boots] which feed [stomp] you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.— Samuel Adams

Quote Patrick Henry

“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great Nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians, not on religions but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this reason alone, people of other faiths have been afforded freedom of worship here.” - Patrick Henry

Associate Justice Harlan I(1833-1911)

This was posted by a friend on Facebook.
In an interview by James B. Morrow (1906), Associate Justice, John Marshall Harlan, I (1833-1911), stated, "I believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God. Nothing which it commands can be safely or properly disregarded - nothing it condemns can be justified. No civilization is worth preserving which is not based on the doctrines or teachings of the Bible. No nation that habitually ignores the rules prescribed by it for the conduct of human affairs can long last.”

Quote from Samuel Adams

"And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press, or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms; or to raise standing armies, unless necessary for the defense of the United States, or of some one or more of them; or to prevent the people from petitioning, in a peaceable and orderly manner, the federal legislature, for a redress of grievances; or to subject the people to unreasonable searches and seizures of their persons, papers or possessions."  Samuel Adams, Debates of the Massachusetts Convention of 1788

With that said, Do you wonder where our current President stands on these issues?  There is no doubt in my mind that he is especially for taking the gun rights away, and has already squashed free speech and religion, within the Health Care mandate.

FIVE REASONS TO VOTE FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA

 
With the election coming up in a couple of months I thought I might look at some reasons one should vote for Obama.

The number one reason I thought of is economical, and has to do with the fact that he is already in office, so why waste another 200, 000 or more per year on retired Presidents salary.  I mean if we elect Romney, President Obama will still be getting an income from the American people, why not make him earn it?

The second reason I can think of is that the man likes going around making speeches, and turning peoples eyes upon himself.  He must really be an important fellow who demands such respect, and awe in the hearts and minds of those who adore him.  His promises are as good as his word; and we know how good that really is.

My third reason to vote for the President is because he wants to divide the wealth of our nation.  Under his ideas the rich will stop getting richer; the poor will stop getting poorer; and I am really sure that there will be more food on everyone’s tables, more gas in our cars, and more coal, oil, and electrical production.  Who among us would not like to have the same wealth as Bill Gates, Donald Trump, or the WalMart family?  Is that the way his ideas would work?

The fourth reason would be because he is such a good family man.  He is for everyone having the right to marry, even two men or two women.  I am that sure eventually he would be in favor of a man or woman marrying their own son or daughter; or their own sibling.  Is there anything wrong with that?

Sorry about the title; but I could not think of any more reasons to vote for President Obama in November.

Paul Ryan - Quote

The following is a reported quote from Paul Ryan, the Vice Presidential running mate of Mitt Romney:

I cannot believe any official or citizen can still defend the notion that an unborn human being has no rights that an older person is bound to respect. I do know that we cannot go on forever feigning agnosticism about who is human. As Thomas Jefferson wrote, “The God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time.” The freedom to choose is pointless for someone who does not have the freedom to live. So the right of “choice” of one human being cannot trump the right to “life” of another. How long can we sustain our commitment to freedom if we continue to deny the very foundation of freedom—life—for the most vulnerable human beings?
Now you decide.
