Proof of the Slippery Slope and the Hypocrisy of the Left

The First Amendment is number one for a reason; it is the most fundamental right of American citizens under the Constitution.

Our Founding Fathers knew one thing most clearly, and that is that men are inherently drawn to power and are thence corrupted by it, resorting to the most base tactics to maintain it once it is in their grasp. These great men worked tirelessly to craft a document that would best protect their future children from the fates other nations had suffered under oppressive tyranny, and prevent future politicians from the same temptation.

It seems their efforts were in vain.

So deeply did George Washington hold those beliefs that after his second term was over, he left the Capitol and returned to his plantation over the objections of an adoring populace that begged him to stay on as President.

Today, there are no men of such principle, for they cling to power and refer to their relative positions in Congress as "their seats". And America is suffering as a result. The Founders never intended this nation to have career politicians, those who would reign over the people for thirty or forty years. We now have "representatives" who have known no other way of life. Their entire careers have been spent writing laws telling the rest of us how to live our lives. The sad thing is...we keep re-electing them.

Which brings me to the most disturbing news of the day. A city in Idaho has enacted an ordinance that basically forces Christian churches to perform gay weddings or risk fines or imprisonment. Yes, you read that correctly, this is not about a public bakery or florist, this is about churches. The town of Coeur d‘Alene, Idaho, is threatening pastors within their community with jail time and fines if the pastors defy the ordinance instructing them to violate their beliefs.

Remember when the whole issue of "gay rights" began heating up? Remember the assurances of Liberals that all they really wanted was "equality for homosexuals"? Well, like any other issue, the Left lied to you, and if you were sympathetic to their causes, you helped create this new nightmare.

Congratulations.

What will follow in the coming months and years, presumably, should be fairly entertaining to behold, for as the left has been quite adamant in their assertion that Thomas Jefferson built a "wall of separation" between church and state, they will no doubt rally around this new trend in governance whereby it is suddenly okay to breech that wall so long as it suits their agenda. The problem, however, is that the Left's position is in stark contrast to Jefferson's intent.

Jefferson intended to ensure that free men (that would be all of us) would not be compelled to subscribe to a particular religion but would rather be free to worship their own private God, or not worship at all if that was their prerogative. It was never intended that government could not embrace religion at all, such as Nativity scenes being banned from public spaces.

And despite the assurances given by the Left about the aims of the pro-gay crowd, in which they swore that "no one is going to force churches to abandon their beliefs", here we have a small municipal entity doing just that very thing.

Oh sure, the next argument from the Left will be that it's just an isolated incident, and that the behemoth that is the Federal Government would never  enact such laws...um, got some spare cash and a hankering for a paved river crossing?

So...here's the hypocrisy part. If you're a Conservative, you've already got it. If you're a Liberal -- and assuming you've made it this far in the article -- here is a recap. While the Left has long maintained that the "Separation Clause" is concrete evidence that Christmas decorations are banned from the lawn of Town Hall, they will argue vehemently that the government has every right to force Christian pastors to marry homosexuals because "it's discrimination" if they don't.

That bridge is still for sale. Cheap.

The Time is Right

America, this is your rallying cry.
Ted Cruz announces that he will be running for President of the United States. 
My fellow Americans, now is the time to seize the opportunity to do what so many of you have wanted to do through these last six long, dreary years, but what so many of you have been too busy to do; change America back into the land you all so fondly remember.

It might also serve you all well to remember how you have been treated over the last six years. We've been relegated to the bowels of society, cast out as extremists, lunatics and terrorists. Think about that for a few minutes, let it sink in. Most of you remember a time when the wackos were the leftist hippies and communists. Well, they have taken over your country and have squashed you almost out of existence.

The TEA Party was a welcome breath of fresh air for us, and I applaud those of you who have joined the many rallies and sacrificed your time to stand up at events in D.C. For many of us, like me, we simply could not spare the time to attend any of these, merely cheering you all on from the sidelines. And for those among my ranks, we have one day where we can make a difference, and that will be on November 8th, 2016.

The last time the Republican Party put an extremist up as our presidential nominee, he won in a massive landslide, and even won a second term. If you're like me, you remember the groundswell of pride Ronald Reagan bestowed on America, the sense of renewal after four dismal years of the Carter administration. We can feel that again in January of 2017, if we seize this chance and don't allow the media to pick our nominee again like they did in the last two elections. Because I can tell you without a doubt that they will foist Jeb Bush upon you.

Ted Cruz is our kind of "extremist", a man who loves America and is extremely knowledgeable on her Constitution. I suggest that if we all come out on election day and embrace our alleged
"extremism" rather than hide from it or deny it, we can thwart the real extremists on the left and take back our country. And all we have to is spend an hour or so on one day and vote en masse to defeat whomever the left puts up to run against us.

Folks, this may be our last chance to defeat this wicked ideology that has infected this once great country. I pray that Ted Cruz sails all the way to the nomination, and if he does. Grab your ailing grandmother and get her to the polls. Make time to get there yourselves, and VOTE.

God bless America, may we rise and stand tall once again.

Victorious Bibi and a Despondent Media

The look says it all.
On Tuesday, Benjamin Netanyahu won re-election in Israel, something which pleases me greatly, and something that has soured President Obama's mood obviously. As of Wednesday night in Jerusalem, Bibi still hadn't received a congratulatory call from Obama, despite the fact that Obama called Morsi -- of the infamous Muslim Brotherhood -- the day after he became president of Egypt. That speaks volumes of Obama's disdain for Netanyahu.

And despite Obama's attempts to derail the campaign of Netanyahu -- an act now under Senate investigation -- he won anyway, which must really stick in Obama's craw.  But the region and, indeed the world, is now going to remain secure because of this victory. Obama and the media and the Palestinians can go cry in their beer.

What's stunning, however, is how unable our allegedly objective press seems to be in concealing their dismay, bemoaning the alleged "peace deals" supposedly in the works for years. Perhaps the media concentrate on only the moment and are incapable of remembering past events, even if they reported on them personally. Case in point, the Palestinian peace deals with  Yassir Arafat.

In the 1990's, President Bill Clinton was working on his legacy and believed that obtaining a Palestinian-Israeli peace accord would get him there. He worked closely with Arafat and tried to broker a deal in which Arafat got virtually everything he wanted and more. Netanyahu, who was also Israeli Premier in 1996, would not negotiate with Arafat if his so called Revolving Door Policy continued.

Yet, with everything Clinton promised to Arafat -- which included a Palestinian state in the Gaza Strip and nearly all of the West Bank, and a capitol in East Jerusalem --he ultimately walked away from any deal that could reached. Why? Because Arafat was the Arab version of Al Sharpton who wanted no solutions because it would end the "struggle".

Let's face it, folks. If the Palestinians get a deal they want and end up happy and content, what would the Arabs have left for which to be angry? How would they justify their hatred for Israel?

So all this media talk about "Netanyahu winning and Israel losing" is pure, unadulterated hogwash. If Palestine has a state to call it's own, Iran will still turn Israel to glass if they get nuclear weapons, along with any such new Palestinian state. So let's all thank God that Netanyahu won, and will at least be in charge beyond the disaster we currently suffer here in America.

There is still a grown up in charge somewhere.
