America, America,

God shed His grace on thee

And you have rejected it.

Pray for His mercy now

before it is too late.

Opinion Time!!

Bloggers, Tweeters, Facebook friends,

I have been restraining myself as I study the czars and other advisers appointed to serve the Obama administration. I have not voiced my opinion but have focused on “just the facts” for the last couple of months. The time has come for me to express my thoughts, not just on the appointments, but also on the big picture of our current situation.

  • the facts show that either [1.] Obama wants a socialist-leaning, “re-distribute the wealth”, “social justice” type team in the White House or [2.] Obama is clueless and someone else is calling the shots. Either way, I personally feel that this makes him, at best, a weak leader, or, at worst, a person who may want to move away from at least some of the principles this country was founded upon. He has said on the record that our constitution “is an imperfect document and I think it is a document that reflects some deep flaws in American culture”. He appointed Sonia Sotomayor, who is not opposed to legislating from the bench, to the the Supreme Court. These types of appointments to the Supreme Court will effectively undermine the US Constitution as it has in the past when justices who, instead of refraining from using their own “interpretation” of what the Constitution says or who have substituted their own “compassion” for actual law, have ruled favorably in cases which should have been thrown out. The founding fathers wrote into the Constitution the ability to make necessary changes to that document—-it is called the Amendment Process.
  • During his campaign Obama professed to be a Christian but his actions since coming into office have not shown any substance to that claim. He has stated that America is “no longer a Christian nation”. If that is true, then America is on its way to collapse according to the founding fathers: George Washington stated in his farewell address   “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.” John Adams said “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” President Obama did not observe the National Day of Prayer but was supportive of the Muslim Day of Prayer at the capitol on Sept 25th.
  • The lack of religion and morality is not limited to the White House. So many of our representatives and senators have shown by their own actions that religion and morality are not priorities for them. The natural consequence of the lack of religion and morality is the corruption of Congress. Our phone calls and letters are summarily dismissed. Our congressmen do not represent the values of the very people who voted them into office in the first place.
  • There is, of course, that 4th branch of modern-day American government: the media and Hollywood. If there is any one place where immorality and godlessness reigns, it is definitely in the media. Many Americans are following these false leaders of public opinion, just as in literature the rats followed the Pied Piper, and I fear they will not wake up until it is too late. Some of us have awakened and are sounding the alarm to warn our families and neighbors to get informed and get active in their own government. And, not surprisingly, Hollywood and the former mainstream media are villifying those of us who are awake, resorting to name-calling and stereotyping in some cases, outright lies in other cases. How dare we go to town halls and ask questions? How dare we organize and march? Well, guess what, we still have freedom of speech and freedom of assembly last time I checked. Our self-appointed speakers on TV talk shows would like to shut us up and pretend we are not here. BUT WE ARE HERE AND WE ARE NOT GOING AWAY AND WE ARE NOT SHUTTING UP!! You have had the upper hand for way too long due to our complacency but NO MORE. THE BATTLE IS JOINED!!
  • Oh, and guess what? Our leader, Jesus Christ (the actual Messiah), is greater and more powerful than yours. SO

BRING IT ON!

Education, Unification, Elections

In my last post I told you about The National 912 Project.org(aka N912P) I have continued to attend on-line meetings with other members and leaders of this group throughout the month of July. I have also communicated one on one with some of the leaders by email and phone. I want to share some of the things I have learned this past month.

This group has a PLAN and is focused on carrying out that plan. The plan has 3 prongs:

  • Education – before we can be effective in standing for our principles and values we must know what those principles and values are and why we believe them. To get ourselves well-grounded we are working hard at studying the principles on which the US Constitution was based. These principles came from our wise forefathers who were well-educated, thoughtful men. The N912P website has a list of recommended reading. I, personally, am attending a small study group once a week where we are currently studying the book The 5000 Year Leap, an awesome book about the reasoning behind the constitution. I would highly recommend reading that book. There are also free webinars available through the National Center for Constitutional Studies(NCCS). I have been taking the Making of America series of lessons. You need to register for these webinars and will need to have speakers to be able to hear the instructor, Prof. Earl Taylor, an excellent teacher.
  • Unification – “a house divided against itself cannot stand”  We need to unite and speak with one voice if we hope to accomplish the lofty goal of taking back our country. We do that by joining together on the principles and values we agree on and as “iron sharpens iron” we teach, encourage, and inspire each other. We celebrate the freedoms we still enjoy. Toward that goal, there are plans to have Liberty Parties in communities all over the USA during the month of September. The Liberty Party will consist of get-togethers in parks or other public places, cook-outs, and fun for the entire family. We won’t be protesting or carrying signs. There will probably be some speakers, maybe some music, games, etc. It will be a CELEBRATION of our heritage. One event that is being encouraged is the planting of a Liberty Tree in each community (with proper permission from the city if on public property). Here is some history about the Liberty Tree from Wikipedia:

The Liberty Tree (1646–1775) was a famous elm tree that stood in Boston, near Boston Common, in the days before the American Revolution. The tree was a rallying point for the growing resistance to the rule of England over the American colonies. In the years that followed, almost every American town had its own Liberty Tree—a living symbol of popular support for individual liberty and resistance to tyranny. Read more about this here >>>

  • Elections – This is important if we are ever going to overcome the progressive movement in this country. We need to elect people who are committed to the 9 Principles & 12 Values. How do we do that? We at N912P have a plan to start placing 912ers in local positions, such as on the city council, school board, etc. From there, we will get 912ers elected at the county and state level before moving on to the federal level. This will be a grass roots effort, literally, from the bottom up. We can get our towns and cities back first. Once we do that we will easily move into positions at the county and state level. When we have the state back, the federal govt will have very little power over us.

There is much work to be done but there are lots of people engaged in this effort. We are preparing for victory in our fight to return to the US Constitution and to the principles upon which it was founded. If you believe in the 9 principles and 12 values, you may join us in this fight at The National 912 Project.org . One person can’t do everything but each person can do something.

Let freedom ring!

The National 912 Project – N912P

Tonight I participated in an online meeting with 35 other people from Illinois who want to see our country get back to the principles upon which this country was founded. The meeting was hosted by The National 912 Project (aka N912P). I can’t begin to tell you how inspiring this meeting was to me.

I have been so displeased with the direction our state and federal government have been heading. And I have felt that the problems were too big to ever change. Besides, what can one or two or even a thousand people do to stop a train barreling down the track toward socialism? I have thought “Should I even try to do anything? Maybe it is useless. After all, my hope is not in the USA. My hope is not in this world. My hope is in Jesus Christ and He will be returning one day to take His people to heaven. So maybe I should just wait and pray.”

I have wrestled with wanting to make sure I have my priorities right because, above all, I want to be serving God in His way in this life. Too many times I have been so “heavenly minded” that I was no earthly good. Too often I have looked past the work under my nose (such as my family) in order to serve God in some grandiose way. But, over the years, I have learned that my work is usually meant to be done quietly and faithfully, and often without recognition by those closest to me.

And, politics is such a dirty business, isn’t it? I hate to even talk about it, much less do anything about it! It is so argumentative and divisive. Nobody listens to anyone else’s point of view….it seems to be nothing more than a shouting match sometimes. I really want to avoid foolish arguments and I seek to maintain a peaceful heart.

There are many efforts being made at this time in our history to get this country back on track. I have joined many websites dedicated to this purpose. I have signed petitions, called, faxed, and emailed my representatives in Washington. I even went to a tea party. But I have felt as though I was beating my head against a brick wall. My representatives could care less what I think. There is no changing their minds. And so I am going to quit wasting my time beating my head against the brick wall that is Washington DC. And I think I will quit signing petitions and making phone calls. Instead I plan to work in a different way now…..a more peaceful way.

This more peaceful way of working to bring about change I am learning from some great minds at The National 912 Project.

I could not relate all the wise information that was conveyed in tonight’s meeting, but I can tell you that, for the first time in years, I can see that there is work that I can do that is basically right under my nose (that’s usually where it is) and it is peaceful work, not contentious or stressful. And, most importantly, I can do it in good conscience.
