The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
This is the email that caused me to resign as County Chairman:
Liberalism is an atheistic cult. The DNC is actually communism wrapped in their liberal religion to mask the fact they are attempting to create their utopian enslavement. The first thing Communists want is to take God out of all government institutions such as schools and government to be replaced with secularism. Secularism is an atheistic belief which replaces the Bibles Ten Commandments and teachings of honesty and integrity with moral relativism. One can lie, cheat and steal if the end justifies the means. This gives the government officials, elitists, leaders free reign to make up morality as they see fit and declare what is right and wrong. Rather than having personal morality or responsibility they believe in a social morality allowing them to live an immoral personal life and having it absolved through social morality.
The Democrats have replaced personal morality with social morality which means to be a good person you no longer have to worry about your personal failings but your societal failings. This allows you to put the social good in front of your personal responsibilities to make yourself a good person. You can be a drug addict, leave your family in shambles or steal from your boss but, as long as you drive a Prius and are concerned about polar bears, you are a good person. You can live any immoral lifestyle you want and, as long as you believe in Social Justice, you are a saintly person in their belief system. This is where the cult lifestyle comes in since you have to take God out of your life and replace it with social morality to work yourself into goodness. Liberals earn their way into their heaven of a perfect liberal.
Liberalism is a Godless religion whose High Priests are scientists. Since they dont believe in God or a superior being the only people who can explain; existence or truth are scientists. They wont accept the myth of creation so they have to have the scientist explain our coming to being through evolution. According to evolution the top of the evolutionary chain is man which means that the only thing superior to man is a more intelligent man or a group of men together like government or science. That should disprove their theory right there.
The average liberal will accept anything a scientist says since they think the scientific method is based on facts and infallible. When a scientist declares something true by consensus such as evolution or Global Warming they accept it as absolute truth. Never mind science has been wrong about similar theories such as acid rain, DDT, Spotted Owls or AIDs affecting heterosexuals they accept it without question. The liberal will accept it completely without hesitation and when someone dares to question the findings of these scientists, that person is attacked and declared a heretic or ignorant of science. The truth is science has been corrupted by politics and now is closed to competitive theories and will destroy careers of non believers.
Many liberal will brag about how they are vegans who love Polar Bears and try to save the earth from those evil 1%ers. They are tolerant of everyone except those who disagree with them. They live their lives to be the perfect liberal who try to earn their way into liberal perfection. Their lives are a series of clichéd phrases and actions, trying to be more liberal than the liberal next to them. They are all pro-choice, for homosexual marriage, for salary equality. They worship the earth and most of all you vote Democrat... None of these social laws have anything to do with personal responsibility but enslaving others to your social morality. Tolerance is their sainted behavior and intolerance and Republicanism is the ultimate sin. Every one of these cultish beliefs either directly or indirectly lead you to voting for more communism and less individual freedom.
While they look in sanctimonious disdain at Christians and their religious myths and intolerance to be scoffed at they will spend untold millions on frauds which have no credible proof. It takes far more faith to believe in evolution than God when you look at the extremely long odds of random evolving of our complex species yet they laugh at the idea there may be a creator. Both take large amounts of faith to fill in the gaps yet ones is laughed at while the other is taught in every institution in the country. The reason is these institutions have agreed that evolution is true through consensus which means all gaps in the theory are ignored completely and questioning is stopped. Anybody who argues against the so called proof or evidence are declared heretics to their religion and not admitted into the church of science. This consensus tactic has been repeated throughout liberal politics to declare their ideas right and any dissention attacked.
The mediots are who determine which theories are valid and which need to be rejected and they of course are members of the cult. The media has decided to promote every tenet of their religion from evolution, feminism, veganism, racism, homosexuality, choice, Global Warming, hate the wealthy, communism and every other lifestyle agenda the establishment considers normal. The only miracle is that after forty years of political and cultic brainwashing is the American dream still lives in half of this countrys citizens. After being mocked and vilified for all of these years Conservatives still have the ability to make these elections competitive considering the overwhelming forces standing against them. There are still people willing to stand up and proudly proclaim their faith in God as well as their trust in individual responsibility.
This should still give us hope that if we find candidates who can articulate Conservatism there are enough people to vote for them. Rather than trying to be like liberals with all their group dividing isms, lets explain how capitalism and God free you rather enslave. Rather than falling for the right colored or gendered candidate, we need to find the ones who can explain the concept of trusting in our own individuality to provide for our families and friends. Rather than bowing to evolution and Global Warming we need people to become informed of the giant gaps in those theories and ask the dirt worshipers to explain why evidence points away from evolution and why there was no warming of the earth for the past ten years? Lets move away from consensus as a Party and use the power of variety and experimentation to pave a way to victory from election to election. The country is starving for leaders and rather than following the affirmative action consensus model lets promote leaders who will lead the followers into our ranks and start attacking the cult. As one of their heroes said, lets choose our leaders by the content of their character and not the color of their skin.

I sent this to my Precinct People. One of them who didnt like me sent it to the Oregonian and the firestorm erupted so before the RINOs could make hay I resigned.
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
I’m very sorry to read the above and what you endured.
I think it ultimately falls on the voters—the people of this country who now have reached such a large block and love free stuff and stories of fairness instead of real life and responsibility.
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
Seems there might not be much talk about the Middle East, and Egypt, in particular, save for maybe one show.
Thanks for thread A.B. Let’s hope Morsi resigns this week.
I’d like to see the mob overrun his palace.
Sic Semper Tyrannus and all.
Once again, CNN has the most interesting guests. I’ll have to suspend my unofficial boycott.
I sent this to my Precinct People.
When I started to read the 'email' I thought it was sent to you, and you objected to it. I was confused because I wholeheartedly agree with every word of it, and strongly believe that one of the slim chances that we have to regain sanity among American voters is to proclaim the message that 'liberalism' is a religion, and our Constitution forbids the Establishment of any particular religion.
Then I read that you had written the message. I am sorry that you felt you had to resign, and I hope you will still continue to spread this message.
Durbin wants Harry Reid’s job and is pushing hard to become the spokesperson for the Dems, imho.
Where's Bob Costas? Is he still trying to interpret Psy's lyrics to see if he should be offended? Because obviously Bob would not be able to understand the lyrics as Psy wrote and delivered them.
Instead we get Simpson and Bowels doing their reunion show routine. When I wake up early, I expect to see an infomeercial where those two guys are selling cures to what ails your economy and dancing lessons.
Uchh uchhhh uchhhh!
Corker and Wallace talking about the GOP caving on tax increases.
Get the Pukeometer!
And Schmuckey......I’m gonna hurl.
Its tough to assume a leadership position and not endure flack,just a necessary par of the job. Your words of wisdom are so strong,so direct, so to the point, few will argue. The few who will however will be outraged to the point of fleeing any mirror that shows who they really are.
Unfortunately, many Republicans think that the correct path to achieve agreement with liberals,which is impossible on the face of it,is appeasement. It never is. We never learn.
AB, I didn’t endure much. I didn’t and still haven’t read the drivel the Oregonian wrote and my post was printed and read by 100,000 people. Some are going to understand it and some are not. Sadly a large percentage of Republican’s don’t and they are in power.
I got out of a broken situation that was going to take hours and hours to fix if it ever could. I sent the email to get my PCP’s up to speed for the battles.
Pray for America
Schumer’s phrase of the day: “ ... the bottom line is ...”
Schumer is a snake. Period. And the Pubbies don’t have the moxy to stand up to him and his fellow snakes. Always playing defense.
RG, most of the flak was about to come from our politicians who had already caved to the paper. I had just won some elections and found by the data the paper didn’t matter and all they had to do is say no comment and it would have been over. Rather they were going to start giving moral outrage speeches and demand I resign.
I also heard the Country Club had already begun a recall election the day I was elected. I had a choice of clinging to a job that was going to give me 14 hour days and have these leaked to the paper or resign and pull the rug out from under them. I pulled the rug.
Pray for America
I wonder if the Oregon foresters who have had to bow to the Idol Spotted Owl would agree with your message, or would they still “believe” that management crushed their union and their jobs?
Schumer was conspicuously absent from the Sunday shows in the months between the conventions and the election. Dem focus testing must have shown that he is a net negative for potential voters.
Now he can be the obnoxious unctuous spokesman as often as he likes.
Senator Corker thinks next year is going to be lollipops and rainbows as the Dems and Pubbies set down to work on real issues.
[Is Corker that clueless? Or is everything ‘we’ see coming from Capitol Hill just dog-and-pony shows, while the American public gets screwed by both parties?]
Liberals worship Big Government.
You would be amazed how many on our side asked why I sent the email. Everybody is afraid of their own shadow like they are ever going to be liked by the media. It is the media’s job to destroy them and get Dems elected.
Bottom line is, more people read that post than has ever read one of my posts and in the belly of the beast. Look at the howling it caused and like they say, if you throw a rock over the fence the dog that yelps is the one you hit.
Meanwhile over on mtp the genuflexing goes on over just how much the Republicans are to blame for ozeros budget deficit.
Some get it others don’t.
One who does get it is Clarice Feldman over at the Thinker.
While we agonize over just how much we have to beat suntanned John Boehner over the head because he won’t COMPROMISE
the world is falling apart.
The Mid-East is a disaster. Libya funneling weapons all over the mideast,Benghazi ignored,again...,Syria due to be taken over by al-queda,and the MBafter they release some posionous gas and then blame it on Assad. Egypt’s Morsi becomes a dictator and by the way all the wmds we are guarding from our looking posts in Turkey came from Iraq where there were “no wmds” except for the 70 plane loads flown in by Gen. Georges Sada who was Sadaam’s former Air Force general.He supervised the 70 flights in gutted 707’s and 747’s into damascus and the rest of the non-existent wmds were trucked in by tractor trailers according to CIA satellite films.
Michigan votes out unions.
GM may have to pay back bond holders,on and on and on. But, our topics today are:
How much do we blame the Republicans for not caving to our Dear Leader for his budget deficit.
Meanwhile Barry boy is getting ready for his next golf trip. That’s before he goes to his 35 million dollar mansion in Hawaii,that he cant afford, for two weeks.
Where no one can find the BC.
A bit bizarre anyone?
You and I who have to lead.We just don't understand the country clubbers mentality of needing to be loved,liked or to compromise.especially when we are right and the left is dead wrong.
Your words still ring out loudly and are the hope of the future.Like me you just don't have 14 hours a day to appease the weak willed.There is work to be done.
Lots of dog and pony shows going on, for the last several years. On the C-Span morning chit chat show, there is a segment about Syria and WMD, which started with another clip of Obama boldly invoking Truman's Third Option. Obama added his own special junior-high-playground-while-nobody-else-is-around-tough-guy language, just to show that he means Obama business.
Truman's Third Option? It's the one the history books never mentioned. Option 1, invade the Japanese islands with resulting casualties in the millions and end WWII. Option 2, use the atomic bomb to force a Japanese surrender and end WWII. Option 3; talk tough in front of the cameras while they are rolling, then rely on a friendly media to deliver. (By the way, Option 3 does not involve ending WWII.)
I want my first response to bray’s email to stand here independent of reference or quibbling of any sort and simply state that it is brilliant stuff.
And where are the Republicans in Congress etc not howling that The WMD’s went to syria from IRAQ! We knew this had been possible before Sadam fell, instead we are still apologizing.
They should be Screaming...”There are your WMD’s! Now shut up about Bush and the Iraq War that Obozo lost after we won it.”
STATE OF THE UNION (CNN): Reps. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., and Tom Cole, R-Okla.
Actual voices of sanity. Candy reprised her role as dem advocate, but the two Republicans gave excellent responses. There is Hope!
He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Isaiah. (John 1:23)
There is a lot I would like to say here, but I just can't clearly articulate it right now .... other than to say that somehow, we need to find a way for like-minded people, people who share the same values and faith as yourself, to come together and work to overcome the evil that has become rampant in the country. I think the GOP is so far gone that we need to step outside that box ... it's become a hindrance, an obscurer of the truth, an enabler of those who lack the original vision of the country's founding, the upholding of Christian principles that, up until recently, have enjoyed God's blessing, and the courage and conviction to stand up for what is true, right and good.
Morning AB, All.
Thank you AB for doing this thread and thank all you yon commenters for joining in.
Just got back from mass, singing at the 8:30 am mass. Also sang for Christmas pagent thing last night, this after driving back from Baltimore as I’d went up for granddaughter bday.
At Chuck E. Cheese, natch. Which I paid for.
Let me begin, just quickly by the dawning realization I have that not only are these current crop of elected Repubs not up to the task, I seriously think they are all part and parcel of the political class.
And yon ladies and gems, I got a real problem with this country’s political class. They own us, they tell us what to eat, how to live, who to love, when and what manner of worship.
You don’t think any of those pubs knew about that mortgage debacle, giving loans to anyone breathing? You don’t think the pubs could have worked on, say, economic issues instead of those stupid, stupid campaign finance reform McCain got all involved in that no one in American cared about?
I think they put Dole and McCain and other losers out there cause I DON’T THINK THEY WANT TO WIN!
I think they’re perfectly happy just sitting around, bargaining on campaign finance reform that no one cares one whit about, jawing in the congress cloak room, happy to let the Dems take the lead while surreptitiously helping the Dems if by no other method than by ignoring the damage the Dems and libs are doing.
I think a Tea Party will soon be formed.
I think Jim DeMint might be the beginning.
Lord I hope so.
Cause we got a political class in this country and by me this is worse than having a damn dictator. With a dictator there’s only guy to get outta there. With this political class it’s an enormous job.
Yep RG, I am a leader and don’t have time for all the politics that goes with it. I had a job to do and a limited time to do it so I was trying to get these people on board. I forgot they were absolutely ignorant to these ideas and it shocked many of them.
We wonder why there are no leaders with big ideas, this is why. It was amazing how everybody I described played their part.
Off to church, but...
That’s a rather interesting and astute observation, Maica!
The Mid-East is a disaster. Libya funneling weapons all over the mideast,Benghazi ignored,again...,Syria due to be taken over by al-queda,and the MBafter they release some posionous gas and then blame it on Assad. Egypts Morsi becomes a dictator and by the way all the wmds we are guarding from our looking posts in Turkey came from Iraq where there were no wmds except for the 70 plane loads flown in by Gen. Georges Sada who was Sadaams former Air Force general.He supervised the 70 flights in gutted 707s and 747s into damascus and the rest of the non-existent wmds were trucked in by tractor trailers according to CIA satellite films.
I believe our great partners for peace, the Russians, also helped move some of the non-existent WMDs from Iraq into Syria.
That said, I will add that I doubt Assad has any intention of using them, or ever did, or is even “so desperate” that he would contemplate using them.
There can’t be any point in believing anything Obamsky and the apparatchik media tell us, is there?
MM you nailed it. I do feel like a voice in the wilderness and there were a number who wanted me to stay. It was going to be a firing squad from people I tried to get elected and not worth the time.
Yes it is time to think outside the Republican box.
Pray for America
a firing squad from people I tried to get elected...
Since you brought it up here’s the latest on Benghazi which changes from week to week so dramatically I haven’t been able to keep up.But just read this excerpt and than try and fathom it all.
“None of this is new in the Obama regime. When Obama was making deals illegally with terrorists worldwide to get that 300 million dollar wire fraud transfer to his campaign, an entire system was being laid which also included direct cash transfers to terrorists in Afghanistan as these were Obama’s good terrorists.
For a reminder in this, there was that little terrorist in Afghanistan working for Mr. Obama and the CIA who was feeding them data for Predator strikes which were all bogus and he later did the suicide bomber job on the CIA station there. This is what Barack Obama has been up to in narco cash and weapons trade for these terror groups, and it has been from day one “off the books” in the CIA was managing this for Mr. Obama, but not informing Congress exactly what was really taking place to keep these criminal transfers from being made public.”
Our side learns very slowly.
It’s the low information voters on steroids.
It’s also the fact that we get an education here on FR that is second to none. We take stuff for granted here that the rest of the world is totally ignorant to.
Rather than trying to be like liberals with all their group dividing isms, lets explain how capitalism and God free you rather enslave.
Basically “capitalism” was first spit out by Marx as an epithetic label for western industrialism of the time. Marx’s stupid, simplistic view reduced all economic outcomes to “investment,” ignoring more factors and forces than I could possibly list here.
Suffice it to say, Solyndra would be doing bofo business today if all that mattered was “investment”—and there wouldn’t be any point in any business doing customer service if “capitalism” was all there was to it.
(OK I’ll stop nitpicking now.)
Exactly, other than random moments of journalism as Rush so adeptly says they are useless.
It would have been horrible but, it turned into a circular firing squad and when they said, “fire” I ducked.
Great Point, except there are no free markets anymore. The bigger problem is nobody understands the free market since it hasn’t been taught for about 50 years. It only exists in a small percentage of people’s daily lives.
Pray for America
This guy Cory Booker might be in the Demovik mix for 2016. You know there MUST be a black entrant to cash in on- and extend the glory of the Great Obamarama Era of Noble Black Leadership, blah blah blah.
I got him at 10-1 right now to be nominated; 5-1 if he actually throws his hat in the ring. He could even run against Christie and still run in 2016.
(Assuming the Great Obamarama doesn’t find a way to name himself Leader For Eternity, of course.)
(Also: Booker will have to learn to speak slower, however. Too much rat-a-tat-tat.)
I can not STAND to hear marbles mouth Mcconnel! He is literally an old white guy..and he is in a PR position trying to out-media obama.HUH? Alan Simpson has charisma and can speak to the young even if he is an old white guy.
Best thing to happen this week was Jim Demint, a marketing expert, going to the Heritage Group and putting some fire into the conservative message. We can’t RE-EDUCATE an entire generation that was lost to govt schools, but we can communicate differently with them.

I agree he can really become a focal point for conservatism in a way that a wonk cannot. Also, he should be able to get Heritage into the states a little more deeply.
BTW: One of my fondest memories of being a DC reporter was a day I spent at Heritage. I walked in there (to interview one of their economics gurus) and in about 5 minutes I was trying to figure out a way to ask how I could go about getting a job there.
