Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. 1 Corinthians 16:13
In my bag theres a bible to show me the way, Through my trials here on earth and to Heaven some day. I will shoulder my musket and brandish my sword, In defense of this land and the word of the Lord. Bright Sunny South by Alison Krauss
I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West! From the movie The Return of the King
Buck up my FRiends!
What will life be like for my childern?
"By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion. Remember, O L-rd, The Children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem who said, "Raze it, raze it, even to the foundation." O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed. How happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us. Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones."
What tag line?
The one thing that we can hold on to is this: We didn’t fail, but those that we trusted, and placed in power certainly did.
Looking at the congressional races, it is certain that we had the legitimate votes to win the election, but those that we trusted took that trust lightly, and failed to guard the system diligently.
We lost this presidential election when we allowed electronic voting instead of paper, and when we didn’t protect and assure the votes of the military.
We have to rebuild with true conservatism.
>> “What will life be like for my childern?” <<
That depends on whether you know to watch for the signs in the correct seasons. Most that call “Lord,Lord” do not, and their children will perish.
>> “We have to rebuild with true conservatism.” <<
Just exactly what do you think you’re conserving?
That is such an obtuse response.
Thanks for these words, Kartographer.
“Regardless of the situation you find yourself in, no matter how bad it seems, assess the situation, inventory your resources, and adapt, perservere, and overcome.”
And always be grateful, because even in the darkest, most terrifying times, there’s so very much to be grateful for.
can individual states make election changes on their own?...like only paper ballots..like demanding id’s?....like limiting the election to a short window?...by demanding that all votes are checked and rechecked with two different sets of poll watchers and counts verified?...
Yes, the states own the Federal Government, it is their client.
Elections are all controled by the individual states.
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.
To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.
Our enemy is not the liberals who voted for obama. Most of them are just unwitting pawns and are in for a rude awakening, but they need to be shown the truth and if they reject it, then it's not us they answer to.
Ultimately, none of us are going to live forever. What really counts is what we do for eternity.
We're stuck in this situation, one none of us wants to be in or one we hoped we'd never see, but here we are and we DO need to make the best of it.
It was not ‘obtuse.’
Conservatism is not an ideology unto itself; it has to have principles and goals to be preserved. What defines conservation in your world? To what are you applying conservation?
But it is valid; there are two ways something can be 'conservative':
(1) Preservative of the status quo,
(2) Based upon the founding principles.
The anointing of Romney, from even before the primaries, was the GOP-leadership signaling that they are about #1.
And I opposed him then. He was the status quo of the GOPlease. That then puts my comment as representing choice 2.
I cant control what evil Hussein does next. However, I can control what I do. I will continue to prep so my own personal world is sufficient for my needs if the world, the country, my state, my county, and my town, collapses.
My Christian beliefs did not allow me to vote for Romney my political beliefs also did not allow me to vote for liberal Romney (I never vote for a liberal), but since Im in Texas, he got our electoral votes.
My personal belief is we are in the end days as prophecy is being fulfilled day by day. I dont know what is ahead, but Im safe in my belief of Jesus Christ and safe in my household.
I pledge by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
