    Bingo!

    People keep making the mistake that they are trying to make things work! They’re trying to destroy to justify nationalizing everything. By the time America starts waking up to what’s been done, it will be all over. USSA here we come.

    “We need to engage the people around us, and ( to quote a friend of mine) “Shake ‘em up. Make ‘em think”.”
    -
    I soooo agree! I think these “tea parties” were an excellent start. We just need double and triple the attendance. Everyone needs to understand that it begins with EACH of us to spread the word about what’s happening and what COULD happen if we don’t act now. Time for average Americans to get involved! Kick the jacka**es out that are destroying our country and it’s heritage...our future! The American dream is special. I believe it is God-inspired. The freedom of our nation and each individual is built on Godly principles. When we remove those... We are no longer America, a nation under God, and no longer under HIS wing of protection!

    -
    “We also need to have “Liberty Lessons”- some kind of basic explanations of what our freedoms are. What the Constitution is, and what it means for the average citizen. (It’s not like they teach this in the public schools anymore.)”
    -

    Awesome idea! We could break these down by communities and teach community leaders about the Constitution and the importance of America’s foundational documents, rights and history. Then we would hold meetings that are fun and educational and get people involved in the vision for a NEW America. But not the hope and change of Obama, but rather a great homecoming, “A JUBILEE” of sorts ...a return to the beginning but with the knowledge of the journey that brought us here! We are all smarter Americans for the journey!

    Anyway, awesome thoughts!

    If you want to see who the Republicans current leader is at the moment, check out Rush Limbaugh at CPAC! Rush is right as usual!

    Your post #20- OUTSTANDING! APPLAUSE! Everyone should read it.

    Thanks. I’ve been thinking a lot about the right and best way to respond personally to loss of my freedoms. It’s a hard pill to swallow, but appears we all may have to... not without a fight. I will fight them with everything I have, but in the end if I lose the fight in the flesh, with God I still win and get to enjoy the ultimate freedom for eternity!!!

    One thing about my Church we have been around the block with the Marxists, anyway about a week ago I was reading Scripture and the question was raised about Civil Disobedience meaning that there are times when you simply have to disobey the Civil Authorities. In my humble opinion this is one of them. What happens if medical personnel refuse to perform an abortion?
    -

    I think we’re about to see some serious persecution of Christians in this country. I never thought that COULD happen ,at least, not in my lifetime anyway.

    It got me to thinking...

    The government, Obama and all the “high places” where nations rise or fall, can deny the people much. They can burden us with immoral legislation and leadership. They can sell us into economic slavery. They can try to remove God from everything that WAS and IS America, but in the end the personal decision is ours. God made us free. We can each choose to live that freedom every day. Only God,himself, has the REAL power that comes not from wielding a fist, but from transforming the hearts, and minds of men! Come what may, no one can take away our liberty to choose to make the best of ANY circumstance.

    This reminds me of Viktor Frankl’s book, “Man’s Search for Meaning”. It’s a painfully human account of his experiences living in a Nazi concentration camp during World War II. What is so remarkable to me about this man is that life handed him the worst case scenario. Frankl not only survived to tell the story, but he rose above and became better because of the experience. He stands as a shining example to all of us as we watch our freedoms torn away little by little day by day. Much can be learned from him about how to handle difficulties.

    Check out some of Frankl’s quotes and the contrast between his and the thinking of the new administration in D.C.

    -“The last of the human freedoms is to choose one’s attitudes”

    -“Ever more people today have the means to live, but no meaning to live for.”

    -“Love is the only way to grasp another human being in the innermost core of his personality.”

    -”Being tolerant does not mean that I share another one’s belief. But it does mean that I acknowledge another one’s right to believe, and obey, his own conscience.”

    -“When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves.”

    -“What is to give light must endure burning.”

    -“Each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.”

    -“Those who have a ‘why’ to live, can bear with almost any ‘how.’”

    He believes that if they get a bill SAYING the money is there, the money will BE there.

    He has thought of where the money will come from for this, and decided it’ll come from wherever any government money comes from, and there’s ALWAYS gonna be more of it from that place...wherever it is.

    You are right! I’m not sure how many people know that Hawaii has already tried the universal healthcare thing and it was a dismal failure. After less that 6 mos, it had the whole state completely out of money. What happened is the people who could afford their own coverage just stopped using their own insurance and started getting the universal healthcare that was provided to the lower income people. I mean, who doesn’t want healthcare for free or next to nothing??!

    Anyhow, it got completely out of hand and they had to shut the whole thing down. I have heard O’Reilly and Rush talk about it on their shows.

    Having said all this, do you think the little liberals learned a lesson from this failure? NO. That want to take this failure and go National or hell, why not Global for goodness sakes! It is all about the NWO now anyway isn’t it?

    Liberals are good with theory, books and sitting in universities. Out here in the REAL world where it counts, they haven’t a clue.

    Good luck with this one Bambi. I’m sure noone will be rationing your healthcare!!!

    Rock on, Indiana!! This is great news. I heard today about the NH bill on Fox and Friends. I think that was today. Anyway, they said 25 states now have some kind of legislation regarding states rights/ sovereignty.

    Not sure what is going to happen in DFW. It is NOT going to have any impact unless we go downtown.
    -

    Well, we aren’t getting a lot of response. I was worried about that. Something in the water around here. Mississippians can be slow to respond.

    I’ve e-mailed GOP and some other groups. We’ll see.
