      Yes I will march on…. but in the Process have decided to plant my feet abroad with regards to my business pursuits. Why? Because while the park squirrels of our errant country have chosen Obama to keep the peanuts coming ( to the peril of us all!). I can not in good consious continue to fill his peanut bag with that which is plundered from my hard fought foraging! In simple terms the beggars will not have Obumma AND my money!!! And I figure that if enough of the “contributors” of our great Nation follow suit, it wont take long untill the beast of big government folds under it’s own weight. And will be driven back within the constraints of it’s constitutional boundries. To the benefit of all, with glory to God. But…. as long as “we the people” continue to supply the peanuts, the beggars and their henchman will plunder unabated and with ever growing fury. If your not convinced, just take a bag of peanuts to the park and see what happens when you spill it!! As the once proud and independant forest dwellers come a running. Abandoning pride and the ways of strength, to become weakened beggars at the mercy of those who would exploit their foolishness. Nuff said

        Great summation!!

  • cajanone1

    There is a great message there. We will never give up. It will take a game plan to counter sending a womanizer out to secure womens votes. Can you imagine Bill Clinton helping get women to vote for someone who doesn’t think they are on his level. Then, making a photo op to show concern for Sandy’s victoms. And then nothing else has happened. Making sure illegal criminal immigrants get to vote and not allowing the military to vote while they defend our rights to kinda free elections. But what is worse is using the US Justice Department to stop any kind of opposition to his maddness. Shame on Americans allowing this to happen.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Raynette-Gilbert/1048242036 Raynette Gilbert

      Amen to that….However, in my own defense, I am not one of the shameful Americans….I have fought this battle hard for 4 years to keep from happening what happened Tuesday..I’m still walking around in a fog….Your post is great and very truthful…….

  • Ncramblit

    I agree 100%. Each person must educate in their little sphere of influence and I do. I believe we must also make inroads in the media and stop the secularizing of our Catholic and Christian youth in the public school “system”.

  • rivahmitch

    Sorry, you lose me at the point where the government arrives at my door, whether to take my guns, inventory my toilets or the square footage per person of my home, check my thermostat , or monitor and control my water use from my well on my property. At that point, someone will die. I’ve no doubt, or regret, that I’ll be among the casualties but I was willing to kill and die for my rights, freedoms and standard of living 45 years ago in the rice paddies and I’m equally willing today. You can stand or kneel and accept the role of Ghandi if you wish. I prefer the role of Leonides. Semper Fi!

        Thanks, Granpa! Actually, I’ve been using several quotes from Ayn in my email signature blocks for over 20 years now.

    • $5708171

      Me too. This is not a matter of “education”. You cannot educate people out of addiction, and progressivism is an addiction – a deadly one. No, having dealt with addicted people all my life, I know that nothing changes for an addict until he or she wants that change more than they want life itself. Anything short of that is lies. Addicts are liars. No, friends, this is not about education, this is war. While Neville Chamberlain was talking peace and negotiation, Germany was building tanks. We need to immerse ourselves in war, and we need to fight this progressive monster as if our lives depended upon it, because friends, our lives DO depend on it.

      • pat

        i hope you mean bloodless-

        • disqus_hHl3eueSDr

          Get some cojones. The only definitive answer to any conflict…blood. We won the cold war without the loss of blood…or have we? Looks to me a lot like it did before we “won” just the name changed back from the Soviet Union to Russia, but the same people are running the country, and they have the same beliefs.

      I revised my Christmas list Nov. 7th. Three guesses…

      Moved to the “country” several years ago.Paid my taxes year after year, obeyed the law & have a relationship with the God of my understanding. I fully expect to be left alone to live my life in America.

      Having 2 grand daughters, I’ll continue to fight for our constitution & freedom, however I am SO concerned for their future. Ashamed also.

        Try these lines:

        Through all of this we will be tempted to exact vengeance, which is not our place.
        The Judge of the universe will repay.
        Our job until then is to stand, and “having done all, Stand.”

      “Our Founding Fathers, here in this country, brought about the only true revolution that has ever taken place in man’s history. Every other revolution simply exchanged one set of rulers for another set of rulers. But only here did that little band of men so advanced beyond their time that the world has never seen their like since, evolve the idea that you and I have within ourselves the God-given right and the ability to determine our own destiny. But freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. The only way they can inherit the freedom we have known is if we fight for it, protect it, defend it and then hand it to them with the well thought lessons of how they in their lifetime must do the same. And if you and I don’t do this, then you and I may well spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it once was like in America when men were free.” – President Ronald Reagan

        Thank you for your service. I understand your rage, and share it. But let’s not play into their hands. We’ll see a bloodless coup accomplished by the military before we have to storm the Capitol.

        • rivahmitch

          Sorry, Allen, but you’re wrong on that. The Oathkeepers are upstanding Americans but are an outnumbered minority and the senior military is more oriented to management, risk avoidance and political correctness than to leadership and defending the Constitution. Like my brother ‘Nam vet, I’d prefer to see freedom die with a bang, rather than a whimper or, as Spielberg suggested “to thunderous applause”.

    • Rattlerjake

      I absolutely agree, riahmitch. The statement in this article, “Our job in the days ahead will be to point out these realities with facts and logic, hoping to persuade Obama’s followers that his path is paved with deception and false promise, leading to destruction. Our quest must be to educate his disciples in the ways of liberty and justice, for all.” is a total waste of time, what the he!! do you (Allen Arickson) think we have been doing for the last 20 years? These idiots who voted for Obuthead have NO COMMON SENSE! You could hit them with a brick, then show it to them, yet they would deny it was a brick if the democratic party told them so. The country has gone past the point of no return, there is zero likelihood that we will survive another four years of this liberal control, as spending will continue to increase, costs will skyrocket, new stricter regulations and laws will be enacted (by executive order), businesses will close causing further job losses and huge numbers to go to welfare. It’s time to form our militias and prepare for battle.

        Think about the Civil War: 20,000 killed in one day, 600,000 dead overall. You really think that’s a solution?

          You prefer dhimmitude?

        • Rattlerjake

          Absolutely, and the body count will be far greater. Those who were participants in the civil war, risked everything; But I gather, you wouldn’t die to preserve the Constitution and this nations survival? Instead, roll over and take it in the azz! When it starts, I’ll be on the front lines.

            I’m a 68 y/o Vietnam vet. Kind of old for the front line, still young enough to join and help the resistance! However, I hope I’m right here in believing our armed forces, who also swore to protect and uphold the Constitution, will keep their oath when it really becomes neccessary. By the way….My armory is growing every day, regardless!!!

        The underground looks to be our future ! My Dad had an old German friend who use to tell us stories of how his father & uncles dodged the Gestapo & SS
        during WWII. He said they would carry the swastika flag during the day and cut communucation lines and carry guns at night , and disrupt railroads, and pass info to the G,I’s anyway they could , one of his Uncles died at the hands of the SS and the rest survived the war. He always said his Uncle saved them all because he never revealed any info. Sounds like our possible furture?

    I agree, but now the voters who want big government Santa Clause, outnumber us and they won’t listen to our warnings. We are joining socialist Greece and France, and it’s a dead end. Secede and form Galt Gulch. Find the state or states to do it. Ayn Rand and George Orwell tried to warn us.

    • RacerJim

      Texas and Oklahoma come quickly to mind as the state(s) to do it.

    • disqus_hHl3eueSDr

      Alexis DeToqueville warned us. When the voting population finally figures out how to vote themselves access to the treasury, democracy ends. That is why our forefathers set us up as a representative republic, but they were concerned about citizen statesmen becomming professional politicians…and so it has happened. Too bad they didn’t foresee the problem with barristers (lawyers) becomming career politicians. There should have been eleven amendments in the Bill of Rights. One that established term limits as well as disqualifying lawyers from holding public office.

  • Joseph

    The one word that caught my attention was “evangelize”. I mean this in the spiritual sense.Education and argumentation are necessary but they only deal with the outside.People need to have the change start in the heart first or else it’s not a complete fix. God calls us to recieve His Son as our Savior and Lord then to proceed from there.When the Democratic convention boos God there’s a bigger problem here than just not having the right ideology.Certainly we must “evangelize”,but let’s start with the “inside” first.

  • RickC

    one of the most basic things we need to do is redesign our education system. and one of the major things is the teaching of true American History from grades 1 thru 12, so that as younger people come along they will understand the American concept of how we came about and what we are about. American History should be required to graduate from school. So much of our past has been rewritten to be negative and that needs to be changed. Even if we went back to the McGuffy Readers until we had up to date books written with correct informantion, it would be a start. Also our science books are skewered and out of line with natural scientific happenings and we are very far behind in math. Teacher should be paid for the job they do and not because they are unionized employees.

    • pat

      ‘They’ own the schools!! how do we implement what you are advocating

    • Liza

      I think maybe our educational system needs a ‘retrofit’ and McGuffy Readers would be a good place to start, that is if the students could both read and use a dictionary. Most elementary school students do not know the meaning of many of the words used in McGuffy’s Readers.

  • Ciaran

    Allan Erickson – you are completely INSANE. FYI – economic protectionism CREATES prosperity and financial security. No matter – you are only preaching to the dimmest of dim bulbs. And those in power – the Nuevo Americanos – they aren’t interested in you at all.

  • IHeartDagney

    It stikes me that the blame here is being laid on Mitt Romney. Why was such a good man not good enough? Before he was governor of Massachusetts, he was a successful businessman who knew how to motivate and get along with people of all political and religious leanings. Yes, he signed “Romney-care”. Don’t those REPUBLICANS who DID NOT vote (but actually voted for Obama) realize that that was what his state WANTED? Besides educating the people who blindlessly (and physically) voted for the Marxist, may I also suggest we also need educate our side on the NON-existance of perfection in man and of the 10th amendment?

    • pat

      you are so right! romney is apparently too good for this country. he was the perfect candidate but too many didnt see him as perfect-the blame lies at Their feet, not his

  • dHb

    “The judge of the universe will repay” and “confront the slothful in the pews”. So I guess what Erickson is attempting to say is that God wanted Christians to vote for Romney and all Christians who voted for Obama, for whatever reason, are not “true” Christians and are going to hell? What a ridiculous bunch of fundamentalist nonsense!

    Obama was re-elected not by an immoral majority but by
    a majority of “takers” with their dependency on the public
    treasury for handouts and free stuff but that does not make them “sinners”.

    • RacerJim

      The majority of those who elected Obama are indeed the immoral majority…18-30 year-old agnostics/atheists, GLBTs, sexually active single women wanting free birth control and abortions, same-sex marriage proponents, etc. etc. Sinners one and all.

      Simply put dHb, God’s word is clear: abortion is murder, homosexuality is sin. Obama promotes both. No one who claims Christ can vote for Obama in good conscience.

      • dHb

        Simply put Allan, the Bible is NOT God’s Word. It is a mishmash collection of Jewish folklore, superstition myth and fable. God has never revealed himself except in his creation and the laws of nature which are there for everyone to see and learn from not just someone who reads a book whether it be the Bible, the Quran, the Book of Mormon, etc. which are all intended to manipulate credulous minds and enslave them to the church and the clergy so that they can secure influence and hence power and revenue. God gave us reason not religion.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Allan-Erickson/1105852120 Allan Erickson

          dHb: You cannot prove it is not God’s word. I can prove it is: search Dr. Peter Stoner’s probability work, eight prophesies fulfilled in the life of one man, and odd of that happening by chance.

          • dHb

            LMAO. Look, Allen, citing superstitious rhetoric concerning Biblical prophecy is not a way to prove the Bible is God’s word and is one of the many clever tricks used by Christian apologists. If you would stop and actually research all this nonsense you have been indoctrinated with and do an actual investigation into the so called prophecies about Jesus you will find that they are verses taken totally out of context and interpolated to make them fit the fantasy of Jesus being the son of God. No one can prove the Bible is the Word of God and neither can I or anyone else prove that it is not but I strongly believe that common sense and reason weigh very heavily that it is not. I know you have “faith” that it is but please remember that faith is the belief in something despite the absence of facts for it or regardless of facts against it.

    This is not the America I grew up in any longer, not that I was expecting our nation to remain culturally static. I just expect to have the Constitution be the supreme law of the land, and I expect the rights and freedoms delineated therein to be at least reasonably respected. The GOP has shifted to the Left, it is no longer a viable alternative to the neo-socialist democrats, and needs to be completely rebuilt, with new leadership and a fresh conservative vision, or conservatives need to find a new party! http://wp.me/p2QJLE-1u

    The “little guys” need to help in the fight to regain our country. “husqubo” (below) is a business man so he has his plan, but what about the individuals who still love this country and believe in hard work and frugality? Here is what I think we, the people, need to do. Other ideas gladly welcome. I can’t believe that all of us together can’t outthink those few that are now running the country from D.C.

    I am past the mourning for our country stage and beginning
    to think of how we can fight. Try this one for size and tell me where I am
    wrong. Conservatives should spend as little as possible and then only at stores
    who are run by conservatives — less tax money for Obama and he will have to
    raise taxes and start taxing some who aren’t currently paying taxes. Start a
    barter network with no taxes going to Obama (probably will have to be
    underground because Obama will tax it if he can), If you can afford to do so
    put money in some safe, but not lucrative, investments to minimize capital gains
    and thus Obama’s tax; , but he will probably follow through with plans to tax
    capital gains at a much higher rate so a lot of people will do this anyhow.
    Then let Obama try to run the government with less tax money and less money to
    give to “the poor”. Let “the poor” wake up to the fact that the hand that has
    been feeding them is and can no longer be able to do so. On the other hand,
    conservatives would need to step up donations to help those who truly are in
    need, but ONLY to organizations they know are conservative. Cut down on driving
    (car pool where possible) and cut out anything not necessary. In other words,
    hunker down like people did during WW2, but this time to cut off the flow of
    money to the “takers” who voted Obama in. I wonder how long it would take
    before people would begin to wake up. If you don’t like the Tea Party, start a conservative organization to your liking. Be open to joining solid organizations that oppose Obama in both 2014 and 2016 (if there is still a country left).

    The caveat to the above is that we need to take care of those innocents who would necessarily be hurt by an even more sluggish economy, but someone needs to get Obama’s attention. As Margaret Thacher said, “Eventually you will run out of other people’s money.” We need to make that day happen sooner rather than later. Imagine being able to cut Obama off in less than two years rather than wait out four more years?

      You can do what I do… I filled out a new W-4, marking myself “exempt” from paying federal income taxes. I still pay into Social Security and Medicare (FICA), but not to federal income taxes. If enough people (the “producers”) do this, this would overwhelm the IRS because there’s not enough of them to prosecute all of us, and we would overwhelm the courts in cases that it would render them inoperable. Therefore, if we can cut off the hand that feeds the “takers”, we can actually do it basically, overnight.

    As I read your article, Allan, I noticed the correlation between the Book of Revelation and what is the political climate of the US. You speak about lukewarm conservatives… lukewarm Ladioceans of the Bible. You speak about how we must evangelize to the followers of Obama to try to get them to see the light of his ways, which is to destroy America. That is what we Born-Again Believers must do to those that follow the Antichrist. I see the parallels, and I hope others do, too, because we must indeed be in the End Times of the Church Age if we can see the similarities between what Yahweh said would be the state of the world when He sends His Son, Yeshua, back to dwell among us, and what we are undergoing in this nation in the current day.

    • Nancy

      I agree with you. In fact, there is no mention of the United States in Bible prophecy. If we are such a super power in this world, shouldn’t we be mentioned? The mere fact that we aren’t, tells me that in the end times, we loose that status. With Obama in office, we are beginning to see how that will happen. He is reducing us through the military, the economy, gun control, parental rights being violated, the division in this country and etc. He is moving us toward that “one-world” government that the Bible talks about. I know that God puts the rulers in their places and he removes them. Therefore, I believe that Obama is the tool that God is using to bring us that much closer to His return. We are to be ambassadors for Him. We are to be His lights in this world of darkness! We need to be like 5 of the ten virgins that were busy getting ready for His return instead of the 5 that did nothing and were found empty handed. We need to be ready and watching for His return. We don’t know how long it will be, but we need to be ready and busy reaching out to the lost.

  • Friar Jay

    The more I think about this article the angrier I get. Obama raised millions from the Middle East by accepting prepaid credit cards without filtering them. Who knows how many bus loads of illegal votes flooded polls in key districts. Those that perpetuated this crap must be hunted, charged, convicted and jailed. If I lose an election fair and square, fine. If I allow my opposition to violate an election and not fight back, I deserve to be a serf.

        We are not “like” a third world country…we ARE a third world country. What you say? A dictator wannabe in the office of the president, a financially and morally bankrupt system, and a population with less and less of a work ethic. The only thing that keeps the the truth hidden, we have the world’s reserve currency. Within the next 4 years, you will see the end of that also.

  • trbozman

    This is for the Christian’s out there. Cheer up “for your redemption draws near”. Bible prophecy has told us exactly, that in these last days, what course this world will take. We are seeing it unfold right before our eyes! We all hoped that America would rebound but Jesus is soon, very soon coming for His Church(believers). Look all around, the Middle East is unifying under the anti-Christ doctrine that Jesus is not the son of God. America is weakening, America is backing away from supporting Israel, America is turning away from Christianity, sin is unabated, the rise in earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes and the list goes on. These are all signs that soon, very soon, we ARE going home. Yes, I agree, it’s so disturbing to see America racing down a steep slope but we need to keep our sights on what’s really important, the kingdom of God. What did Jesus do? He lived under the crushing rule of the Roman Empire but His life was secure in His Father’s love. He gave Caesar his tax, obeyed the laws of the land but always maintained a cool demeanor, was calm, under control, but yet, ready to defend His Father’s love being strong as a lion. He was always thinking about us. His focus was to love on the people and TRUST in our Father and never fear(the word fear, by the way, is mentioned 365 times in the Bible, one for each day). When the storms came Jesus said, “fear not”. When death reared it’s ugly head Jesus said, “fear not”. He wants us to always be at peace. He said that there is only one time that we should fear, “fear that you don’t enter into His rest”. So how do we do that? Rest by being secure in the finished work of Jesus. Know and establish this truth in your life that, you are forever free from ALL sin and it’s penalty of judgment, that you have ALL things that pertain to THIS life and His godliness(spiritual things). So relax, take a deep breath and don’t get caught up in trying to save this world, that’s why Jesus is coming back! We need to be strong in Jesus’ work. Put YOUR efforts or work on focusing on Jesus’ righteousness(which He has given you) and everything else will be taken care of. Christians, you were bought with a precious price and your kingdom is not of this world, your home is in heaven! Jesus is coming back for us! God bless, and rejoice!

    Romney was defeated by social conservatives. This makes no sense to me. No sense whatsoever. Millions of them did not vote. The vocal few sound so mean-spirited and bigoted that many cannot hold their noses and vote for a Republican.

    This country is ready for fiscal conservatism. It is not, nor will it ever again be ready, for bigots who let their private values, for example on homosexuality, interfere with the civil rights of consenting adults. Promiscuity, not committed relationship, is the scourge of this nation at present. Last time I looked, heterosexuals weren’t helping on that score. The Bible says a whole lot more about adultery and pre-marital sex and promiscuity than about “gay” inclinations. Christians now accept all manner of extra-marital nonsense and yet are mean and nasty about people born gay. Abortion is more complicated, but even Ann Coulter states that it is idiotic and cruel to expect a raped woman to bear her rapist’s child. Immigration is out of control in this country, and “amnesty” is infuriating. But we the people have been complicit in allowing illegals to get settled here and bear children, and to suggest they must “just go home” is ludicrous and mean. They are in the shadows because they are illegal — we don’t need to accept citizenship for them to remove the illegality. Socialism will now take a deeply rooted and tentacled hold on this nation because social conservatives destroyed the opportunity to get our current truly dreadful president out of office. I am a fiscal conservative, right of Atilla the Hun, I believe in individual responsibility and the Constitution, and I have no dog in the fight about homosexuality. Straight as they come, personally. But I will not discriminate against anyone because of background, skin color, or sexual orientation. Does an individual display, honor, honesty, responsibility, compassion — these matter.

    Your bullet list above is GREAT — great until you get to “traditional morality.” It makes the whole list a null set politically. Morality, except killing, is a private matter. Get off that judgmental horse and live your values. You and I will likely be living much the same in that area. And if it is better, others will follow. But we must accept civil liberties for others and not mess it in with the vital cause of fiscal conservatism.

    I am registered Independent because both parties are morally bankrupt on so many levels. I voted eagerly for Romney, a decent man ready to turn us back in the right direction. I am sickened since Tuesday at the realization that fiscal conservatives
    have so many other agendas that they cannot unite, and therefore socialism is triumphing in this country. It really is a shame.

    • pat

      Amen! romney could have started to turn this country around but self righteous won the day (or rather lost it) i am far right as well but legislating morality is a losin battle. even God is about agency..let him judge the sinners

  • dissappointed

    I love my country and I love God. I am a registered Republican and I am gay. The party will not grow stronger by alienating Americans with different beliefs. Some couldn’t get past the fact that Mitt is a Mormon. Mitt was the most decent man to run for office in a long, long time. We need to lose the microscope and look at the big picture or our party will decline. We have a man sitting in the Whitehouse that is destroying our country.

    • Washington22

      disappointed………….My brother is gay and I love him dearly. We are all close and united as a family. The problem I have with gays is that they want to be “married” . Civil unions are available to them, but still, they want their relationship to be called marriage, a biblical word for a man and a woman. Why not chose your own word? Call it what you want…………..but NOT marriage. This alone offends us and stops us dead in our tracks. I believe in “live and let live”, everyone follow your own path but don’t infringe upon mine. All this business of gays fighting for marriage in state after state is repturing any possible realtionship between us. I may not be speaking for everyone, but I certainly have a lot of people that feel as I do, so I assume it is felt the same way in other venues. Gays want what has been ours for thousands of years. You can’t call a horse a dog and you can’t call a cat a elephant……….You can’t call a gay union “marriage.”

    NO……..We need to stock ammunition and firearms, organize, plan, and take an offensive against this monster. The country needs to be split. Sluff off the coasts and take the heartland from this union and form another on our constitution. Liberal judges need to be targeted, education bureaucrats eliminated, liberal reps and senators shot., It is possible and not hard…a widespread uprising cannot be stopped on our home turf. Sacrifice of our lives for this is little concern when balanced against our situation.

  • 2War Abn Vet

    There is no cleared demarcation between liberal and Conservative thinking than behavior following from this election. The libs threatened riots and violence should Obama lose, the Conservatives, despite severe disappointment, simply go on with their lives.

  • DaveNTejas

    Well one thing is for sure, even the dumbest among us will be able to see what the results of 8 years if Obamma looks like, and it will be hard to blame Bush for the problems we will have in 2016. I think we should all start looking at and listening to Gary Johnson, he is true Libertarian, and I think the Republicans have left us, just like Democrats did. Just my two cents.

    keep your eyes on the Lord Jesus Christ. One can die for their country but moreso be ready to die for your Savior and Lord. The prophetic clock is ticking and America, as she grandly was until Nov. 6th, stood in the way of globalism as in the NWO. We are now a nation who stands against Israel. Its gonna get ugly on our own shores now. God is watching and taking notes so we must stand on the side of right.

  • pat

    what are you Talking about? Mitt campaigned endlessly about all 7 of your highlighted areas. yes, even traditional marriage and life!!!!!!! Mitt lost because of people and articles like this. you so called principled people (cuz those of us who voted for romney dont have any principles, right?) have cost the righteous another election. our guys didnt even Show up! we deserved to lose and everything we will get now. and our kids and grandkids will suffer the most. so be it

  • Sanpedrojoe

    Ah, Mr. Erickson, how’s this approach of yours been working out in Kaliforlornia for you? The fundamental problem is that two large population groups are socially collectivist, habituated to paternalistic statism, and are convinced capitalism and entrepreneurialism produce more inequality and less opportunity for basic equality than other systems. They are intellectually fed – to the extent that is happening at all – by a privileged elite that controls media and educational institutions and their content.
    The proof is the re-election of the worst prepared, least skilled, least accomplished individual as president in our nation’s history, an individual dedicated to carrying out a bloodless revolution that fundamentally restructures our nation and society. Henry Wallace is loving this.
    This has been building for 140 years or a little more. One election cycle is not going to change it, much less undo it.
    I like your words but don’t think the dog will hunt.

  • jerry sweet

    i want to be clear here.i am a disciple/follower of Jesus Christ.(the ONE who started HIS Church,this Jesus.with that said.if i am arrested because of being a Christian,i will follow Christs orders.if they come to murder,rape my wife,children and every demonic thing they can conjure up in their evil minds,then i will defend and i don’t care how many of these traitors lie in the street.God,Guns and Guts gave us this Rebublic.we arrogantly threw God out.but i am told in scripture i have the responsibility to protect my family.protecting ones family is not taking vengence on these decieved humans.Jesus in Luke 22:42 asks Peter & John if they have no weapon to sell,if need be their coats and buy some.i read and study Gods word in the context of what is being said.i do not split hairs as so many hirelings we now suffer behind the pulpits of America’s Church’s would have us believe.they replied they each had one and Jesus said that’s enough.not John MacArthur’s comment that when they responded He became irritated ,is a bunch of crap.they were just answering the question! evil men have always existed in this fallen world.thieves,murderers,rapist and sadistic killers were the same then as today.we just have more of them.earlier He sent the disciples out and told them to take nothing with them in the form of provisions,they were supernaturally protected during this particular mission, but Christ knew they on the same missions to come later to spread the Gospel,He was going to be gone and they needed a way to defend themselves against evil men who would try to murder them.now with God ordered out and He left(in a sense) He took His rights with Him,that includes the 2nd amendment.this is not about being persecuted for our faith,its not about saving our Rebublic, there is nothing to save.we have become the most perverted nation on earth, and its not about saving the Constitution/Bill of Rights.its about tyranny period and trying with Gods help to kill the killers.you may see it differently,i don’t care.i live in reality,i study Gods word in the reality of what is being conveyed by the HOLY SPIRIT.i know america is doomed and damned.we deserve the wrath that is coming.obama is just the latest stooge God is using to punish a nation that was the most blessed in history.our punishment will shock the world.now when the lead starts to fly my Saviour may have me stand down,but i have the faith and i will know it.if He doesn’t,i pity any human that violates my home.to die is gain if i am to be killed so be it.it means my battle on earth is over.i am with my master.i am not afraid of death at all.like King David in the psalms,oh death where is your sting lock and load.protect your family or any neighbor that some sadistic person is gleefully killing.make them experience the pain.i end this with believe what you want,i have made my choices,and will answer any way i have to,in the future

  • Take 2

    What! The War on Women is over! Huh? He said Mexican’s get to stay and take back all boarder States! Removed ‘your’ God…so no since doing prayer.

  • B.P.

    What the hell have we been doing the past few years? Obama’s serfs DO NOT WANT to be taught or learn the wickedness of his ways. They’re perfectly happy remaining ignorant and clueless provided the government subsidies show up.
    It is sad to say this, but true. The ONLY way to force these leeches to deal with reality is to take it all away from them. The school of hard knocks is a wonderful teacher and the lesson is remembered more vividly. Ben Franklin advocated making it uncomfortable for those in poverty to motivate people to get out of it as quickly as possible. The Democrats have turned it into a posh lifestyle for some.
    When bums can rake in $40K a year in benefits without lifting a finger who are you going to persuade to give that up to struggle to earn $40K without it?
    Once again we see the immense error in not strictly adhering to the Constitution. Social Security, medicare, food stamps, welfare, and unemployment are ALL UN-CONSTITUTIONAL. If we had adhered to that, we would have NONE of these problems. People would clearly understand they are expected to work and will get no freebies not to.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Allan-Erickson/1105852120 Allan Erickson

      Far fewer Blacks, youth and Hispanics voted for Obama this time around. Many women declined to support him. I agree with you on the enslaving nature of entitlements however.

    I believe they will come. Our guns will be useless. I will not die to keep my gun. They have the advantage…they have my country. This is unbelievable…I will pray…and stand..The devil is ahead this inning…The ball is in God’s court. When will they come for our bibles?

    • http://www.theantiliberalzone.com/ Gunny G Alz

      Maryann33,
      THAT is the wrong attitude. When they come for your guns, you shoot to kill, regardless of the consequences. There is 80 MILLION gun owners in the USA. We OUTNUMBER THEM so if WE surrender, WE lose. When you have no means to protect yourself, you become slaves and potential victims like the Jews and Ukrainians.

      • MARYANN33

        I am more use here praying than dead with my gun in my hand…I am really old so not much to worry about…They will come with hollow points.

        • Sweetrae

          Then you will be a subservient slave. Gunny G Alz is correct, Most of us brave people are willing to die to protect out freedoms. God does not need a bunch of hothouse lilies, he needs us to put on the gospel armor and stand tall. Good thing people with your attitude didn’t fight the Nazi’s otherwise we’d all be speaking German. Stop your pity party and gird your loins so to speak and stand tall. God needs brave people. A hero dies but 1 death, but a coward dies a thousand deaths. Go back a read your Bible because you’re obviously are lacking in faith and God is still on the throne and in control.

          • MARYANN33

            When push comes to shove. I am of more use praying than shooting…Plenty of others will be shooting..I have plain bullets and no bullet proof vest. They will come with hallow point bullets and bullet proof gear. Better ides is to get rid of Obama by having a non fraud vote. He will likely lose an honest vote and he has never been a legal president…But of course if God tells me to shoot, I will shoot…

          • Sweetrae

            Do you ask God where to park your car too? I may sound harsh but that’s a poor reason. Grandmother’s have shot and killed vermin that were trying to break into their homes to do them harm. Don’t sell yourself short on knowing how to protect yourself.

          • MARYANN33

            Breaking in is one thing. Coming with their uniforms from the U N with bullet proof vests and hollow point bullets is another…I don’t like those odds. I did not know I would not shoot when they came for my guns until Obama was elected or stole the election. I will shoot the random criminal, I will not shoot the heavily armed U N sent by Obama…I did not know that before. Now I do….No, to your question. I park the car on my own…I pulled into the parking spot quite crooked yesterday.

  • MARYANN33

    The illegals elected Obama. He knew they would….The country really began changing when they started voting. Until that time California was Republican. Neither party is right. Both need to be replaced..We need the American party. The brave military need to not serve under this wretched commander…Women voted for sin…to use abortion as contraception when the free stuff failed…and they wanted the free stuff. Free sex used to be an abomination, just like homosexuals….The devil is peacock proud…Thanks Hollywood. Try wearing clothes one day..I pray it snows in Ca so they might cover up something.

  • Remnant-of-the”D”

    I have very mixed feelings on this matter. In fact in the first day after this so called “election” ( I still believe that Oh and Fl were stolen), I started some soul searching, being so distraught and dissapointed. What I found might surprise you. From one of many Christian Conservative sites I visited that day I found “Psalm 29″ Part of it sounds very comforting, indeed calming, but read the whole thing. It deals with exile of the Jews from Isreal. There was a false profit – who told them they would only be in exile for two years. Well, he lied, and he died. The truth of the matter was that they were in fact exiled for 70 years! Yes 70! But that was ok, because in the time of exile it was God’s plan – and God’s plan is always perfect, and during this time the Lord told the exiled to “Build, grow, marry, have son’s and daughters, then marry off those son’s and daughter’s” and in the end – the exile was exactly what the Lord wanted for his people. So perhaps Mr. Erikson is correct.

  • daveveselenak

    It is time for the people to unite and forgo a national work stoppage. The Kremlin West has nothing but disdain for the serfs, and why shouldn’t they, afterall they elected these agents of the devil! This is the dialogue needed, harsh but true. Abortion and soon to be forced euthanasia – good for the State – homosexuality are components of this Godless regime that doesn’t value life but rather death, how can you argue against that? They’ll kill you in the womb, they’ll kill you near the tomb! That leaves them with a lot of leeway for those that fall inbetween those parameters and I am sure they are plans being made for those, especially if you are a Christian! Nikita [Kruechev] was prophetic: “we will bury you from within.” THEY HAVE and the fools voted for it!

  • Jack

    I want to tell the person that is writing this that in order for us people who love this country and want a person that will run on principles that this country needs.Just try to explain that to the idiots of the republican party who run it. Who by the way did not like reagan when he was running agaisnt Carter .Because he didnt care for what the media thinks of him or does not want to be nice to the communist party that has there leader now running the show. The people that didn’t vote this year the 3 million were most of them did vote in 1980 and in in 84 and 88 and 2000 2004 .So when you do have a person like Ron Paul who would had easley if he was the person running for president could have won with no problem.But what did the party do and Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and that I want media attention on me dope Ann Coulter did they ran him out of the election and not allow to even talk to the convention what a joke . The tea party was ignore as well by this party.It is no wonder that this party lose in 08 , and this election and will be in 2016. I can see why those 3 million didnt bother to vote .I am just thinking when this party will get it when you chase away any good person like a Ron Paul or any tea party that you will lose . So what Did I hear that the party who they want to run in 2016 another Bush are you kidding me the last one is one of the reasons why the republicans lost in 08 and this election . I got it why don’t we pay Carter to be a republican and have him run in 2016 if we are going to even have any Bush to run for president that most people don’t want in that party that are republicans then lets just again lose in another election and pick Carter since idiots want to have another Bush that are in charge of that party. What goes through minds when they think about why they lost this year or in past elections The answer another wimp bush .Just perhaps one day can people that run the republican party to tell the bushes that just because they are a bush that the party should kiss there butt. and put them in running for being president there is a word and it is called no no no no more bushes .Can you please stop putting that famliy anymore to run for the president two times people had a enough .I do think if Mcgovern who ran in 72 if he was around and alive this party the Republicans would think he would help them win in 2016 .Just look at there track record and the people they put up since 08 and I do think that would do happen very scary .Can the republicans please stop promoted Ann Coulter all she is does is act like she is helping the party when she cares only for herself and saying stupid things that does not help the party .She is only wanted to promote herself.Please stop having her around

  • Mikebark

    There is one message that liberals will understand LOUD and CLEAR. They want to raise taxes on us to pay for their reckless spending? I SAY FINE! You liberals can pay ALL the taxes! That’s right, as a protest to obamacare, we conservatives enmass will not pay any taxes to the federal government until obamacare is repealed! THAT HITS THEM WHERE THEY LIVE, IN OUR WALLETS!! Shut them OFF!!! Boycott all federal taxes until obamacare is REPEALED!!!!!!!
