  • One vote has not been counted

    11/06/2012 10:03:36 PM PST · by Truthsearcher · 39 replies
    Dear friends, We don’t serve men… we serve a God in heaven who knew the outcome of this presidential election before the first vote was cast. And we’re living in this particular time for a reason… God wouldn’t have put us here in this moment in history if He didn’t have a purpose for us. God knows our hearts and He knows our strongest desire is to save His children from the sin of this nation, but God’s plan for us is not an easy road. If it were easy we wouldn’t have been forged in the fire for this...
  • Time to move on from Todd Akin

    08/21/2012 3:22:32 PM PDT · by Truthsearcher · 78 replies
    Well, Mr. Akin has made it clear he won't drop out, and now it's time for all of us who have called him to step down change tactics. If you're in Missouri, then unfortunately you have the unenviable task of trying to drag his carcase across the finish line in November. But you still have to do it. 3rd party candidate is not going to do anything other than help the Dems, so don't go that route. If you're not in Missouri, then stop talking about him. Anybody else bring him and his comments up, just deflect it by saying...
  • Texas Alliance for Life urges member to vote for Dewhurst?

    07/30/2012 11:27:17 AM PDT · by Truthsearcher · 8 replies
    So I got this email from Texas Alliance for life that includes the following "David Dewhurst is the ONLY candidate with a track record of passing pro-life laws. He knows how to get things done to protect unborn babies and their mothers. Please don't gamble when you vote on Tuesday. Vote for David Dewhurst." I don't know why they are implying Cruz is not pro-life, when he is, and why they are getting involved in this fight.
  • Parents of Jessie Bender, 13, lied about daughter, cops say; Was trying to escape arranged marriage

    A 13-year-old girl reported missing by her parents was really trying to escape an arranged marriage in Pakistan, police said Wednesday. Jessie Bender's folks told authorities last month their daughter ran off because she didn't want to go on a two-month family trip to her step-father's native country. They then falsely claimed she was abducted by someone she met on Facebook, officials said. However, after weeks of investigating leads that wrangled the FBI, the U.S. Marshals Office and police departments nationwide, authorities say it was all a lie. "Bender family members misled detectives and withheld critical information," San Bernardino County...

  • RI gov to shut down state government for 12 days

    08/24/2009 7:56:57 PM PDT · by Truthsearcher · 14 replies · 640+ views
    PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Rhode Island will shut down its state government for 12 days and trim millions of dollars in funding for local governments under a plan Gov. Don Carcieri proposed Monday to balance a budget hammered by surging unemployment and plummeting tax revenue. The shutdown would force 81 percent of the roughly 13,550-member state work force, excluding its college system, to stay home a dozen days without pay before the start of the new fiscal year in July....
  • Thoughts on 4th of July

    07/04/2009 6:19:51 AM PDT · by Truthsearcher · 7 replies · 525+ views
    July 4th, 1776. Abraham Lincoln was an American hero who changed history because of his faith in God and the principle of Liberty. Most people forget that prior to the Civil War there was a national debate on the subject of slavery. In those days enslaved blacks on southern plantations had no rights. Whether they were fully human was an open question. Today it seems like a silly debate, but with the benefit of hindsight we see a dangerous trend throughout modern history. Adolf Hitler didn’t think the Jews were human and millions of Germans agreed with him and put...
  • Why Obama is toast

    ...I still think McCain will win the election and do so by a larger margin than Bush did in 2004. When this happens, a hurricane of outrage will be unleashed at the political analysis business, mostly the pollsters. People will demand to know how they could be so off. In other words, the future of the political analysis business will be destroyed as their reputation will become destroyed in the upcoming days....
  • Here is how the McCain people should fight back

    09/02/2008 4:13:00 PM PDT · by Truthsearcher · 30 replies · 60+ views
    It's actually pretty simple, every time you talk about them on TV interviews, you preface it with "these sleazy (or pick another word of their choice) from Barack Obama and his operatives" Keep bringing up the fact that Obama is personally responsible for these attacks, keep repeating it, and even if the interviewer bring up how Obama has condenmned them, say that action speak louder than words and that everybody with an ounce of common sense knows he's behind them. Make Obama's character the issue, do not let whatever the media person say distract you, stay on this repeatedly and...
  • Sarah Palin, abstinence, and the myth of "safe sex" education

    Is there such a thing as “safe” sex? The recent revelation that the daughter of Sarah Palin is pregnant has raised a furor among Democrats who are calling Ms. Palin a hypocrite for encouraging abstinence. This raises the question, “Is there such a thing as safe sex?” And I’ll be honest, just like the rest of the world I believed the rhetoric of people like Barack Obama who support abortion and partial birth abortion under the guise of wanting to reduce unwanted pregnancy through education about safe sex. They wouldn’t talk about safe sex unless it existed… right? Fortunately there...

  • Crack in McCain's Armor? He can't win a caucus (Vanity)

    02/03/2008 6:48:01 AM PST · by Truthsearcher · 45 replies · 49+ views
    In the Iowa Caucus, McCain finished 4th with 13%, In the Wyoming Caucus McCain was tied for last, in the Nevada Caucus, he finished 3rd with 13%, behind Ron Paul, and yesterday in the Maine Caucus, he finished 2nd with just 22%, some 30 points behind Romney. He can't win in a caucus state because it's the hardcore Republicans who attend them, and McCain has real trouble with that group of voters. Well, looking ahead, there are still 344 delegates in caucus states up for grabs. Including 203 on Super Tuesday. If he does as poorly in them as he...
  • Romney needs an unconventional strategy. (Vanity)

    02/01/2008 11:02:27 PM PST · by Truthsearcher · 63 replies · 190+ views
    I think right now Romney needs to focus his attacks instead of on McCain, on Huckabee. The McCain voters are not going to come over to him. It's the Huckabee voters that are potential persuadables for Romney. Because they already don't like McCain. And Huckabee, the McCain stalking horse that he is, has been focusing all his attacks on Romney and not on McCain, because his job is to keep Romney from winning, not actually winning himself. Romney not addressing these attacks and focusing his attention on McCain is making a mistake and leaving his flanks unguarded. By attacking Huckabee,...
  • McCain vs. Hillary, this is the best America has to offer?

    Well, it looks more and more like this is what we're going to get. This has got to be the nadir of American political history, can anybody think of any election that featured two candidates that were more uninspiring, unpleasant, unqualified and reviled in general, and even by a significant portions of their own parties, than these two clowns? Of all the great people in this great country these two are the best two people we can come up with to lead us? Something is wrong with our election process if it's producing these type of results. I predict a...

  • Seminar Callers on Talk Radio for Friday (Vanity)

    09/04/2004 1:26:05 AM PDT · by Truthsearcher · 18 replies · 686+ views
    Talking to some of my friends about the various talk radio shows we listen too, we noticed a distinctive type of caller who showed up on the various shows on Friday. They all claim to be "undecided" about who to vote for, and the 2 things they would all bring up is the "5 deferrals" by Dick Cheney followed by "George Bush promised in 2000 he would be a uniter and not a divider, yet this country is more divided than ever". Neither of these arguments seem to be the type of thing a true undecided would focus on, because...

    ABCNews ^ | 11/05
    drunken driving arrest, hardly anyone gives a hoot. Only seven percent of likely voters in the latest ABC News tracking poll say George W. Bush’s arrest on that distant evening in Kennebunkport raises serious questions about his qualifications for the presidency. Only five percent say it makes them much less likely to support him. And in both cases, nearly all those who do care already support Al Gore. The revelation certainly got quick currency: By Friday night, 91 percent of likely voters had heard or read about it. But it didn’t change a thing: Bush has 49 percent support, Gore ...

    DUI report seems to be having no impact on likey voters. The November 2-4 tracking poll was conducted by TIPP for our media partners, The Christian Science Monitor and Investor's Business Daily. Of the 1,074 adults polled, 718 were classified as likely voters, yielding a sampling error of +/-3.75 percentage points.
