Normally I don't like to blog about political stuff because I know how controversial it can be, but I feel like there is so much going on that needs to mentioned. If you believe in what Obama is doing because it's your belief, you know the facts and are okay with them then fine- that's your right. BUUTTTT....if you just follow him because he's part of your party, is a good speaker, and has a nice smile then you need (just like every American should) to educate yourself so that you know the facts and aren't just backing him up because of party ties. Unfortunately not long ago I found myself in that same category...not really looking at the facts, just agreeing with anything and everything because...well..."he's republican. Of course he's right." Then I got a big slap in the face and realized how much not only the democratic presidents, but also the republican ones messed us up and have lead us to where we are today.
I don't want to make this a long blog because I know that it really isn't that fun to read long blogs, so I just want to highlight some things that I'm worried about that I think should be brought to everyone's attention. I'm asking you to look into these things, find out for yourself, and to not just sit by (like I have for SOOO long) while our country spirals into chaos. I absolutely believe (my own personal belief) we will be held accountable before God for what we do to support our country and the Constitution.
-President Obama is surrounding himself with some really scary people. I mentioned Van Jones in my last post. He is a communist, served jail time, is a 911 Truther, etc.... (Check out the video I posted earlier.) There is so much that is scary about this guy. Look into it!
-Another one of Obama's Czars, Cass Sunstein wants to regulate the internet. "Barack Obama's nominee for "regulatory czar" has advocated a "Fairness Doctrine" for the Internet that would require opposing opinions be linked and also has suggested angry e-mails should be prevented from being sent by technology that would require a 24-hour cooling off period." (Fairness Doctrine.) So...like this blog post wouldn't be allowed because it isn't pro-Obama. What's happening to freedom of speech?
Sunstein also wants to make it so that your dog or cat could take you to court. Hmmm... that sounds like a great idea. Oh, and he would also like to ban hunting in the US.
-Jon Holdren, the Science Czar wants to put sterilize America through our water system. He believes that government should have control over how many children you have. That isn't a God-given right at all is it? Why shouldn't government have control over this? (Heavy sarcasm here.)
-The whole make over of the Healthcare system is scary. Our current system certainly isn't perfect, so let's fix the holes but don't throw out the whole thing. It would give us crappier care, cost us more money, and frankly, I don't want the government to be in charge of my health care. That is my right, my choice- not theirs. Abortion would be legal and be supported by my tax dollars- NNOOOOO thank you! (So much more info. on this as well that should be mentioned but won't be here.)
-Cap & Trade. This will cost Americans SOOOO much money, close businesses, give government more power, (is pointless- the whole Global Warming in a huge scam in my opinion), increase our taxes, increase our energy costs, ETC...
I'm really worried about these people that Obama is lending his ear to and these other big issues. Does any one else see anything wrong with this?
I've been reading the 5,000 Year Leap, and have been learning a lot about our Founding Father's. I personally believe that they were inspired by God to write our Constitution. What I want for America is to follow the constitution and to turn back to God. The principles they talk about are amazing in that book and (so far) go hand in hand with what I believe in religiously. Less government- more individual responsibility; more faith in God; virtue; pride in America; hard work; frugal living, service (by choice...not by pulling money from my wallet and giving it to someone else who hasn't worked for it), ETC.....
Again, there is so much to write about. I've left a lot of details out; I've left a lot of opinion and fact out and haven't documented my sources, but A) I don't have time, and B) I don't want you to just take my word for it. I cannot tell you how important I feel it is for us to become more active in what is going on in our society. Start small. Start anywhere. Find one thing you're passionate about and follow it- don't feel overwhelmed. Write, call or e-mail your congressmen, senators and the White House.
