Final election thoughts

I’m predicting a moderate-sized Romney win, but the Democrat’s intimidation tactics and destruction of Republican registrations are already well-documented and could swing the results.  Given how Obama used your tax dollars to buy votes from millions of people I’m amazed that it could be a Romney victory at all.  But I’m encouraged that even with the seemingly non-stop Obama (free) infomercials from the mainstream media that enough people see how he is actively destroying the country and how a second term would be step functions worse.  He’ll be as unrestrained as the blind men of Sodom.

And a Romney win will be just as huge of an impact.  With some natural business cycle improvements plus Romney/Ryan policies they would sail to re-election in 4 years based on the dramatic improvements in the economy.  It would be the easiest campaign ever: “We promised, we delivered.  Want some more?”

But it gets better than that.  The Clinton Democrats will throw Obama under the bus before the Romney inauguration and keep him there permanently.  The Liberal extremists would be damaged for a long time.

Will I still have joy if Romney loses?  Of course.  That is my birthright as a Christian to have joy and contentment whenever I choose.

But will there still be something to mourn about?  Of course.  While I’m a huge fan of God’s sovereignty and how we shouldn’t act as non-Christians do when it comes to mourning or celebrating the wrong things or in the wrong way, there is nothing wrong with lamenting a Romney loss.  And as one blogger noted, there is no reason you’d tell a Romney supporter, “no big deal, God is sovereign!” any more than you’d say that to someone going through a medical issue.

As I responded on a Facebook thread, I definitely agree that our hope should be in Jesus. Mine is. And we need an eternal perspective. But taking that to an extreme would also mean that the “love your neighbor” command isn’t a big deal. After all, this life is just a short blip, right? But if I love my neighbors, I want them to have religious freedom, I want them to have jobs, I don’t want them to be killed just because they are unwanted, I don’t their minds poisoned with sexual perversions in public schools, etc. And this election deals with all of those things.

The lesser of two evils is still less evil.  We aren’t voting for a religious leader.  We are electing someone to govern us with the values most approximating a biblical worldview, and our choices are limited.  Even if a self-proclaimed Christian ran you can never be 100% sure he is legitimate.  Remember, Obama claims to be a Christian.

And remember, it isn’t just about the President.  While the incumbent has violated the Constitution at will, most Presidents don’t.  So the Congress is crucial.  When people long for the “Clinton years” what they are really longing for is a conservative Republican Congress.  And the “Bush years” that Obama blames the most were the “Democrat Congress years.”

So get out and vote Republican if you haven’t already!  And remind Democrats that until their platform is changed, they are officially pro-abortion: No restrictions of any kind plus taxpayer-funding.

Ann Coulter: Rude, but right in exposing moral schizophrenia

Note: Please don’t be one of those people who sit out the election because Romney isn’t a Christian or doesn’t perfectly align with your views.  The lesser of two evils is less evil.  

And in this case, it is a lot less evil.

Ann Coulter knows how to get attention.  I think she is over-the-top too often, but she is far more fact-based than anything I see on the Left.  And when her critics take the bait she exposes them for their extreme hypocrisy.

Consider the hand-wringing over her calling Obama a retard.  Of course she shouldn’t use terms like that.  But she wasn’t making fun of mentally retarded people, she was making fun of Obama.

More importantly, note the moral schizophrenia of those who criticize her for using a politically incorrect word referring to mentally retarded people while advocating for the legal destruction of those same people.

Remember, the Left celebrates the fact that they have reduced the number of people with Down Syndrome people by 90%.  Read that carefully: They haven’t prevented cases of Down Syndrome, they reduced the number of people with Down Syndrome by justifying the killing of them in the womb.

This illustration summarizes it perfectly (click here if you can’t see the image).

How long do you think it will be before Obamacare requires people to have abortions to eliminate “unfit” people?

And speaking of Obamacare, please don’t miss her latest column on the importance of electing Romney.  There are so many reasons he is vastly superior to Obama: The economy, religious freedom, the cause of life and more.  But the longest term impact will be whether we can put the brakes on the devastating consequences of Obamacare.

The single most important issue in this election is ending the national nightmare of Obamacare.

If Obamacare if not stopped, it will permanently change the political culture of this country. There will be no going back. America will become a less productive, less wealthy nation. What wealth remains will have to be plowed into Obamacare — to the delight only of the tens of thousands of government bureaucrats administering it.

. . .

You know who specializes in rescuing failing enterprises and making things work? Mitt Romney.

Contrary to ignorant slanders about Romney’s private sector work, his specialty was not buying thriving companies and stripping them for parts. Rather, the Bain Capital model was to take companies that were on the verge of collapse — about to cut all jobs, pensions and health care for their workers — and save the business.

Romney is the Red Adair of his profession. He’s like a doctor who specializes in multiple gunshot wounds or an oncologist who takes only Stage 4 cancer patients. Yes, there were layoffs, but also lots and lots of jobs, profit, success, efficiency, saved businesses and saved lives.

. . .

Not only has Romney promised to issue a 50-state waiver from Obamacare on his first day in office and then seek a formal repeal and replacement, but he’ll know how to do it. The savior of dying companies will fix health care in this country so that no Democrat will be able to wreck it again.

The only way to rid ourselves of this national poison pill, set to destroy both health care and the nation at large, is to elect Mitt Romney our next president.

Ten minutes to prove the devastating impact of media bias

Voters aren’t just uninformed about key issues and people, they are deliberately misinformed by the media to ignore faults of Democratic candidates and even to attribute them to Republicans.  And they are well-informed about irrelevant issues and false attacks.

When you start watching this video you might just get the impression that it is mocking ignorant people and that both sides could do that (although Snoop Dogg sure is a winsome and compelling representative of all things Obama).  But keep watching and you’ll find out there is much more to this proof of media bias and how it is helping destroy the country.

Finding people who don’t know about Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, who controlled Congress at the time, etc. would be like shooting fish in a barrel.  But it wasn’t just that they were extremely uninformed on important players and issues.  Consider the following:

  • They were extremely well-informed on less important issues such as which candidate had the daughter with an out-of-wedlock child and whose political party paid $150,000 for her clothes.
  • They were extremely misinformed on many things about Palin and McCain, such as what Palin really said about Russia. Why? Because as part of the Leftist Media’s literal 18-to-1 negative to positive stories on Palin the Big 3 networks all repeated a Saturday Night Live skit that mocked Palin by distorting the truth.
  • They were extremely uninformed about negatives about the Democratic candidates, so much so that they assumed the negatives were about Palin or McCain.  They assumed that Palin made the “57 states” comment that Obama made (though ironically they realized how idiotic the statement was).  They didn’t know Obama got his opponents kicked off his ballot but assumed it was Palin or McCain.  They didn’t even know Biden quit a presidential campaign for plagiarizing a speech.  What could have been more relevant?  They didn’t know that Obama claimed that he would deliberately bankrupt the coal industry.  They had never heard of Bill Ayers.  And so on.

Zogby Poll

512 Obama Voters 11/13/08-11/15/08 MOE +/- 4.4 points

97.1% High School Graduate or higher, 55% College Graduates

Results to 12 simple Multiple Choice Questions

57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing)

81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing)

82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing)

88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing)

56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).

And yet…..

Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes

Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter

And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her “house,” even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!

Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.

Here’s the 2012 version: Most voters don’t know how wildly successful Romney has been in business, in running the Olympics, how generous he has been, etc.

If you only consume the Liberal media then I can guarantee you that you are ill-informed.  Don’t be a tool.

Great post by the Bumbling Genius about worldviews and voting.

Older people now, by handing their healthcare over to the government, is in essence handing it over to the up and coming generation, a generation that has been taught by the same older people that there are no absolutes, not even that everyone should absolutely get taken care of when they’re sick or broken.

But wait, it is even worse: That same generation has also been taught that it is all about their self-esteem and happiness and how wonderful they are. Combine that with their moral relativism and it will take about 15 minutes for them to rationalize away taking care of old people.

I noticed that the Leftist media is working to keep the Akin rape comments issue alive and trying to pin it on Romney.  But Romney rapidly refuted Akin’s comments in a clear and thorough fashion.  That only leaves two options.

1. The Left agrees with Akin.  After all, if Romney strongly opposed Akin and the Left strongly opposes Romney, what other option is there?

2. The Left knows Romney disagreed with Akin but is so desperate to destroy Romney and avoid accountability for Obama that they have no choice but to lie.

Code Pinkos Descend on RNC Dressed as Giant Vaginas — They are so tone-deaf that they miss their obvious hypocrisy.  Shouldn’t they use these same arguments against those insisting that we pay for their birth control and abortions?

The protesters carried signs saying such things as, “Read my lips. Leave my vagina alone,” and argued that pro-life Republicans are waging a war against women.

 

About that “brother’s keeper” verse . . .

I rarely see Genesis 4:9 used properly, where Cain kills his brother and then cynically answers God:

Then the LORD said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” He said, “I do not know; am I my brother’s keeper?”

That’s the only place it appears in the Bible, yet President Obama and many false teachers* use it as a trump card to justify wealth redistribution.  Dinesh D’Souza exposes this hypocrisy in How I became George Obama’s ‘brother’, where he actually helps the impoverish literal brother of our rich and powerful leader.

As D’Souza notes, the argument — if true — that George has exhibited some bad behavior would not let the President off the hook for helping him.  After all, it is a Liberal mantra that George’s social conditions are the real culprit.

George’s brother is a multimillionaire and the most powerful man in the world.  Moreover, George’s brother has framed his re-election campaign around the “fair share” theme that we owe obligations to those who are less fortunate.

One of Obama’s favorite phrases comes right out of the Bible: “We are our brother’s keeper.”  Yet he has not contributed a penny to help his own brother. And evidently George does not believe, even in times of emergency, that he can turn to his brother in the White House for help.

. . .

Obama’s refusal to help George is especially surprising because George doesn’t just live in American-style poverty but rather in Third World poverty.  He lives in a shanty in the Huruma slum in Nairobi.  He gets by on a few dollars a month.  Obama also has an aunt named Hawa Auma, his father’s sister, who ekes out a living selling coal on the streets of a small village in Kenya.  She says she would like to have her teeth fixed, but she cannot afford it.  Obama hasn’t offered to help her either.

What’s going on here?  Why is President Obama so hesitant to help family members in need?

A couple of years ago, George teamed up with a British journalist Damien Lewis and the two of them published George’s story in a book called “Homeland.” Yet according to Lewis, shortly before the book’s publication in America, the publisher Simon & Schuster decided to shred the entire print run, more than 20,000 copies.  Lewis tried unsuccessfully to get an explanation from Simon & Schuster but to no avail.  He now suspects that the White House convinced Simon & Schuster that George’s story might prove embarrassing to the president.

In 2010, George also applied for a visa to come to the United States and was refused.   While George confesses that in his younger years he was a delinquent, he has never been convicted of any crime.  Moreover, he has a very good reason to visit the United States: his mother Jael Otieno lives in Atlanta.  So why would the U. S. embassy in Nairobi refuse a tourist visa to the brother of the president who just wants to spend time with his mother?

. . . So what’s the real story here?  Where’s George Obama’s “fair share”?  George’s tragic situation exposes President Obama as a hypocrite.  Here is a man who demands that others pay higher taxes to help the poor—even poor people who are not related to them—while Obama himself refuses to help a close relative like George.

Yet I believe there is a deeper explanation that goes beyond hypocrisy for why Obama wants nothing to do with George.   After all, it would cost Obama so little to raise George out of poverty, and yet he won’t do it.  This isn’t mere negligence; it suggests an active animus.   . . .

No wonder President Obama despises George, doesn’t want him around, doesn’t care to hear George’s views circulated in America, and won’t lift a finger to help him even when George’s son is in the hospital.

 

Christians love to give their own money to help the truly needy.  But the Bible is clear: If you can work but don’t, then you don’t eat.  And it isn’t charity to ask “Caesar” to take from neighbor A by force to “give” to neighbor B.

Even if that verse meant that we are to be our “brother’s keeper” in the sense that they use it, then we’d be obliged to do that with our money, not our neighbor’s.  And those using that line should start with their literal brothers.

*False teachers include people like Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis and race-baiting Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie, who reflexively take the “brother’s keeper” line out of context.  

Roundup

Great message about why we shouldn’t modify worship services to meet the alleged desires of the unsaved.

God was exposing a lie that had held us captive for years.  He was proving that his Word is fully sufficient, and that true converts thirst for it like a desert thirsts for rain.  Many who had grown up in the faith had hearts that were calloused toward the Truth.  Years of comfortable church had led them to hear the Word but excuse themselves from practicing it, steadily becoming self-deceived.  They projected this hard-heartedness onto newcomers, like the kids in the old Life Cereal commercials:  “Try teaching that to Mikey the Seeker – he HATES everything… Heyyyy…  Mikey LIKES it!”  Unfortunately, some never noticed or accepted that new believers were craving pure spiritual milk and even graduating to meat ahead of them.

The Sunday School class at the church we joined last year spent 3 years going verse by verse through 1 Peter.  A recipe for boredom and a shrinking class, right?  Hardly.  It grew like crazy, attracting high school kids (including my daughters) up to retired people.  Real believers want real Bible teaching.  You can tell how much confidence people have in the word of God and its power by how they treat it in sermons and lessons.

The one-size-fits-all response to Obama and his supporters when they complain about the Republican House preventing them from doing something: “You had two years of a Congress with sizable Democratic majorities, plus the momentum from your election win.  If raising taxes [or whatever else they are complaining about] was so important, why didn’t you do it then?”

—–

Atheist Jerry Coyne was so quick to dismiss the fact that Darwinian philosophy was at the root of the Columbine shootings that he said this in light of the latest events in Colorado.

Of course there was no evidence at all that Darwinism or evolution had motivated the shooters. They were disaffected and troubled boys who, thanks to America’s lax gun laws, were able to acquire an arsenal of firearms.

But as the facts show, Coyne was completely wrong.  But he is totally accurate on all of his science and never lets his ideology get in the way, right?

It was amusing to read the anti-gun rhetoric of his followers.  The survival-of-the-fittest types can’t go three sentences without contradicting themselves.

I’ve yet to find one of the anti-gun politicians or false teachers who isn’t pro-legalized abortion.  And I’m pretty sure they are all pro-taxpayer-funded abortion, meaning that they think our country would be better if only more unwanted human beings were destroyed in the womb.

My question for them: Would they switch to opposing abortion if the “doctors” used guns instead of knives?

Methodists in Northeast Approve Pro-Gay Resolution — The Methodist Church in the U.S. is doomed. The non-Christians outnumber the Christians in this conference. Worse yet, even in a conservative area like the Texas Conference the non-Christians are able to keep Bible-believing and Book of Disciple-following pastors from becoming Bishop — and solely because they hold a biblical view of homosexuality.

While I’d love to blame the non-Christians in the denomination for this, it is really the fault of the squishy Bible-believing leaders and members who didn’t have the faith and courage to exercise church discipline and remove false teachers. Appeasement is deadly, not loving.  Sadly, some Bible-believers have learned that the hard way.  Appeasing doesn’t increase your odds of getting promoted, it just makes it 100% likely that you’ve sacrificed your principles and stopped preaching the whole counsel of God.

Leonard Pitts is a racist.  He thinks blacks and Hispanics are too helpless to obtain voter ID, even though they must provide identification for countless other daily activities.  And my guess is that he is pro-legalized abortion, which currently kills blacks at a rate 3x that of whites and Hispanics at a rate 2x that of whites. And those rates will increase as the Liberal dream of taxpayer-funded abortions increases.  Seems kinda racist to me.

The real outsourcing

Barack Obama is trying to appeal to people’s concerns about job outsourcing by making distorted attacks against Mitt Romney’s business record.  But I hope this backfires on him as his other attacks have thus far.  Consider these facts.

1. GE, one of Obama’s non-tax-paying cronies, is moving its x-ray division headquarters from Wisconsin to China. That’s one of many examples.

2. Tax rates are often bigger drivers than wage rates.  When Compaq shipped tons of jobs to Singapore in the 90’s it was because of Singapore’s tax rates.  I know, because I did many of the financial analyses.  Democrats have done nothing to make our tax rates more competitive.

3. The real problem with outsourcing isn’t that the jobs shift geographies but that they shift from citizens/taxpayers to non-citizens/non-taxpayers.  Therefore, illegal immigration is the ultimate catalyst for losing jobs.  Yet Obama has done everything he can to buy more votes by losing more jobs for his citizens.

4. Unions make U.S. businesses less competitive and foreign goods more attractive.

5. The anti-drilling Democrats send countless high paying jobs overseas, and most “Green” jobs have gone to other countries.

6. Oppressive and unworkable regulations like the Dodd-Frank bill and Obamacare make it more enticing for companies to move jobs.

Vote Republican to keep more jobs here.  More jobs here = less unemployment = more taxpayers = less people receiving benefits.

He’s still lying.

First, where is the ACLU?  After all, Obama is seeking to force his religious beliefs on the country.  Oh, wait, they only protest religious views they disagree with — which means that they aren’t opposed to religious views in principle.  They just use that as a tool to suppress free speech.

Second, is this a coincidence?  Obama openly supports gay marriage: 48 hours after top gay donors cut off funding.  And note how it takes the focus off the economy.  Be sure to end any conversation about this with a reminder of how bad our financial situation is.

As Haemet notes, “same-sex marriage” is still not banned anywhere in the U.S.  You should immediately question anyone making that claim, because they are misinformed and/or disingenuous.  And they are probably hateful and ignorant of polygamists and those who practice bestiality.  At least that’s what they say about anyone who disagrees with them about the historic view that marriage is a union of a man and a woman.  They’ll be shocked that you would say that, but they are just pulling up the drawbridge and hating on anyone who doesn’t think just like they do.  You need to be as liberal as them or you are a bigoted hater, but not any more liberal than them or you are a pervert.  Got it?

Make no mistake, Obama didn’t evolve on “same-sex marriage,” he devolved back to his 1996 position because it was costing him campaign contributions. The impatience of the LGBTQX lobby may have cost him the election and the sure support of SSM he would have given after the election.

He has been doing everything imaginable to advance their agenda, including ignoring the Defense of Marriage Act (which the Left was happy about but ignored the dangerous precedent — picture President Bush arbitrarily not enforcing Roe v Wade) and exporting perversions to other countries (we are withholding aid from poor countries unless they go pro-gay).

By the way, he is still lying.  He has no intention of leaving it to the States.  He’ll do the same power grab he did with the Defense of Marriage Act.

Let’s analyze what he said, via Obama endorses gay ‘marriage’: says support based on Jesus, Golden Rule:

WASHINGTON, D.C., May 9, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – President Barack Obama has flip-flopped on gay “marriage” for the second time, endorsing same-sex marriage in an interview today, in which he said his decision was motivated in part by his Christian faith and his belief in the Golden Rule.

This is such a transparent political fundraising stunt.  That is bad enough, but for him to blame it on Jesus is sickening.  Why is he forcing his (false) religious beliefs on us?

Remember, this is the same “Christian” who is not only pro-partial birth abortion but anti-Born Alive Infant Protection Act and who was a devoted follower of Jeremiah Wright (until it cost him something).

“We are both practicing Christians and obviously this position may be considered to put us at odds with the views of others,” Obama stated,

Yes, “others” like God.

“but, you know, when we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is, not only Christ sacrificing Himself on our behalf, but it’s also the Golden Rule.”

That is nonsense and could justify almost anything.

However, Obama had previously implied the Bible supports homosexual unions. “I believe in civil unions that allow a same-sex couple to visit each other in a hospital or transfer property to each other,” he said in 2008. “If people find that controversial, then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount, which I think is, in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in Romans.”

Only a pagan could find Romans 1 to be obscure.  It is one of the most “big picture” books of the Bible.  And the Sermon on the Mount says nothing about oxymoronic “same-sex marriage.”

The president told the media his newly articulated position represents his private views, and that he believes each state should make its own decisions about marriage. However, he has publicly opposed state initiatives to define marriage as the union of a man and a woman in North Carolina and Minnesota.

What — you mean he already broke his word?  And anyone who says he won’t change once again about Federal involvement is naive or lying.

Fox News anchor Sheppard Smith greeted the president’s statement by saying, “President Obama, now in the 21st century.”

What a tool.

“Malia and Sasha, they have friends whose parents are same-sex couples,” he added.

So if his kids are friends with polygamists, pedophiles, people who have sex with animals, etc., then Barry will change?  Or will not being willing to change make him a bigoted hater?

In today’s statement, Obama appeared to flip-flop on the issue of marriage for a second time. In 1996, while running for Illinois state senate against Alice Palmer, Barack Obama filled out a questionnaire from the homosexual activist group IMPACT stating, “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.” His aides later disavowed it.

As a U.S. Senate candidate in 2004, running against Alan Keyes, Obama said, “I’m a Christian. I do believe that tradition and my religious beliefs say that marriage is something sanctified between a man and a woman.” He maintained that position in the 2008 presidential race.

That’s because he’s lying.

Obama’s likely 2012 rival Mitt Romney clarified his position in return, saying, “My view is that marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman…I don’t intend to make any adjustments at this point – or ever, by the way.”

One more reason to vote for Mitt.

But we shouldn’t be surprised with Obama.  Remember, Obama’s UCC is the denomination of Jeremiah Wright and Chuck Currie, who makes ridiculous posts saying that President’s Call For Marriage Equality Consistent With Christian Ethics.  Well, gee, if Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie says it then it must be true!  He had this LOL:

Discrimination is contrary to the will of God.

Really now?  Chuck is going to tell us about the will of God?  This is the “reverend” that denies that Jesus is the only way to salvation, which is only mentioned 100+ times in the Bible.  And he prattles on about the “least of these” but it pro-taxpayer-funded abortions.  You can’t make this stuff up.  Theological Liberals have no conscience on these things.

If those claiming the name of Christ want to disagree with the clear teachings of the Bible, their own denomination and 2,000 years of church history, then the burden of proof is on them to explain why the rest of us are wrong.  Yet in my experience the “pro-gay Christians” just go by their emotions or offer up one logical fallacy after another (e.g., “Jesus never said anything about it, so it must be OK.”)  I have more respect for non-believers.  At least they are clear about being my spiritual enemy.

Remains of dead Chinese fetuses turn up in capsules — but are we grossed out for the right reasons?

Similarly, some of the same Christians who recoil in horror at the idea of a dead fetus being microwaved in a clinic in China show no concern for the “spare” embryos they created being left to thaw in an IVF clinic in America.

Our moral intuitions are justified—we should be disgusted by the cannibalistic customs of our pagan neighbors in the East. But we should wonder why our discernment fails us when, in the name of advancing science, curing disease, or alleviating infertility, we turn a blind eye to the Satanic practices supported by our Christian neighbors in the West.

We’re like vegetarian butchers at Moloch’s feast. We think we are somehow morally superior because we draw the line at eating the children we kill. But whether the blood is on our mouths or only on our hands, the stain of the slaughter seeps into our souls.

Obama’s gay marriage balancing act gets awkward — It is only awkward because some of his fans don’t realize that he’ll “finally” decide to be full-blown pro-same-sex “marriage” if he is re-elected.  Obama thinks voters are idiots, and he has some good reasons to hold that view.  Fortunately the impatience of some in the pro-gay community will help force his hand and cost him some votes for people who believe his current lies. I’m glad to see Romney with a clear stance here.  One more reason to vote for him.

Some advocates told Yahoo News that Obama surrogates endorsing gay marriage is a way for the campaign to “wink” at second-term support for the policy without taking the political risk of outright embracing gay marriage in an election year. Mitt Romney has said he would pass a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage and appoint judges who oppose gay marriage, placing himself far to the right of Obama, who helped end the military’s ban on openly gay service and abandoned the Federal Defense of Marriage Act. But despite this gulf, both candidates oppose gay marriage—an uncomfortable fact when it comes to rallying the Democratic base or fundraising from passionately pro-gay rights donors.

And it is noteworthy that 2% of the population is gay but over 15% of Obama’s big money-raisers are gay.

And then there’s the money, according to the Washington Post, one in six bundlers — the people who raise the big bucks for the Obama campaign — is gay. They are still raising money for a man who continues to twist himself into a pretzel over gay marriage, and whose White House still can’t figure out how to message it. Why? Because they believe wholeheartedly that he actually supports gay marriage, and if re-elected he will come out in full support of it and flip his position.

Paul Washer declares war on the “sinner’s prayer.”  Great points.  My view: The Bible doesn’t ever ask you to say when you were saved or when you said some prayer.  It does tell you to examine whether you are saved now, and why.  Hat tip: Touch Ya Neighbor

Why Obama will win. Or possibly lose.

While arguably the worst President ever — before he has even finished his term! — Obama could still win.  Here’s why:

  • He could cancel MLK day, expose Je$$e and Al for the poverty pimps that they are and more, yet still get 90% of the black vote.
  • Democrats will cheat.  Again.  Especially knowing that if they win that their “Attorney General” will cover it up again.  Expect more New Black Panther voter intimidation.  Why do you think they fight so strenuously against voter ID laws, which are so common sensed that even liberals from Europe can’t understand why we even debate them?
  • All the pro-aborts will vote for him.  They really, really like abortion with absolutely no restrictions, including safeguards for women.
  • When the 51% of people getting benefits realize they can [temporarily] tax the 49% into oblivion, they will do it.  Thinking 15 minutes into the future isn’t their forte’.  The entitlement crowd would rather see the country burn to the ground than give up their benefits.  (See: Greece.)  He isn’t the Food Stamp President by accident.  He wants people to be dependent on the government.
  • The massive payoffs to his union supporters (that your grandkids will pay for) will garner votes, and they’ll want more.
  • The media died in 2008, but the zombie media will still shill for Obama 24×7.
  • He’s the incumbent.  That makes it hard to lose, especially when you are a shameless campaigner-in-chief who has hosted more fundraisers than the last five Presidents combined.  And ask yourself why your media of choice hasn’t told you about that.  Do you think the media would have hidden it if it were President Bush?

So what does that mean?  Unless you want to see the country destroyed even more, then you need to vote for Romney.  Yeah, he’s a Mormon and not very conservative, but the lesser of two evils is less evil.  And Romney is a lot less evil than Obama.

Remember, the next President may get to appoint two Supreme Court justices, and Obama has already tipped his hand at how he’ll be even more unhinged in a 2nd term.  And he’ll abuse his executive powers even more.

Here’s why he might lose:

  • Romney is doing a decent job of campaigning.  He deflected Obama’s ridiculous “Mitt wouldn’t take out Bin Laden like I did” faux macho by noting that even Jimmy Carter would have done it.  Oh, and Obama’s authorization was very tightly written so that if anything went even slightly wrong he would be off the hook.  He made sure it was all about him.  If it goes great, he campaigns on it as if he bravely pulled the trigger, if not, he washes his hands of it.  I think some people will see through that.
  • Some people may come to their senses and realize that they’d rather have jobs than endless unemployment benefits.
  • The independent voters are unlikely to be suckered a 2nd time.
  • His attacks on Romney typically boomerang.  Again: Dog mistreatment issue?  Hey, at least Mitt didn’t eat his.  Silver spoon issue?  That ignores, as Ann Coulter called it, the silver spoon of affirmative action, and ignores Leftist icons FDR and JFK.  Attacking Romney’s faith?  Yeah, polygamy is terrible!  What, it runs in Obama’s family as well?!  Oops!  The “war on women” because you don’t want to pay for contraceptives for 30 yr. old students at expensive law schools who want to sleep around?  Uh, yeah, except the vast majority of jobs lost under Obama were from women and he has a horrible record in how he treats them (they are paid less than men in the White House).

In 39 months this administration has increased the national debt by $16,000 each for you and each person in your family.  Do you think it is sustainable to keep adding at that rate?  Who will pay this off, and when?

Related story: 50% of college graduates are underemployed / unemployed.

The guy they thought was the Lightbringer, the Messiah, The One, told them what their college activist ears wanted to hear, but they never took the time to transition from “fired up and involved” to “hey, would his policies actually work?”

One more thing to point out

“On the other end of the scale, the southern U.S., anchored by Texas, was most likely to have young college graduates in higher-skill jobs.”

Hmm, so, places that tend to be good Red states work best.

Steve Harvey promotes 90 day fornication rule on TBN:

Actor, comedian, author, and radio personality Steve Harvey made an appearance on the Trinity Broadcast Network’s (TBN) show, Praise the Lord.  Airing May 11th, 2010 with Paula White as the host, Harvey talked about his book, “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.” He specifically discussed the “90 day rule.” This rule tells women to put a man on probation before giving away any “benefits.” Harvey went on to state that he knows that the Bible says a person should wait until s/he gets married to have sex and he agrees with that whole-heartedly.  But he states that since people are not going to wait until marriage to have sex, they should at least wait for 90 days.  Paula White wholeheartedly agreed with him and didn’t correct him at all!  The crowd laughed in agreement.  The Bible warns us in Jude 18-19, “How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.”

What a great idea!  You can also covet, murder, steal, lie, etc. — as long as you wait 90 days!

One meme after another boomerangs on Obama.  Dog mistreatment issue?  Hey, at least Mitt didn’t eat his.  Silver spoon issue?  That ignores, as Ann Coulter called it, the silver spoon of affirmative action, and ignores Leftist icons FDR and JFK.  Attacking Romney’s faith?  Yeah, polygamy is terrible!  What, it runs in Obama’s family as well?!  Oops!  The “war on women” because you don’t want to pay for contraceptives for 30 yr. old students at expensive law schools who want to sleep around?  Uh, yeah, except the vast majority of jobs lost under Obama were from women and he has a horrible record in how he treats them (they are paid less than men in the White House).

Why doesn’t Obama run on his record instead of desperately trying to find the killer meme to attack Romney?  Oh, right . . . that record.

“Satan” thanks his “Christian” pastors who prayed for 40 days of abortion — nice satire. My comment to him:

Yes, “your” pastors are doing very good work for you! I see your hands all over their organizations, including the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice — the ones so clueless about science that they don’t even know that abortion kills a human being long after the “choice” to reproduce has taken place.

And nice work on your part to coach the Left on how to shriek about “separation of church and state” when authentic Christians point out that it is immoral to crush and dismember innocent but unwanted human beings but to be hypocritically silent when the fake Christians say the opposite “in the name of Jesus.”

The tragic superficiality of the gay lifestyle — I was surprised yet glad that this actually made it in the NY Times.  Hopefully some people will reconsider their views.

A fascinating and surprising story published in the New York Times, laying bare what many homosexual activists will never admit publicly. It reports the real life tragedy of a typical homosexual man who sees and lives life based on the superficiality of homosexuality. How you look, what you wear and your “positive” attitude about yourself as a homosexual was the false recipe he sold to countless other gay men, but somehow knew that it wasn’t the truth.

On Jan 1st, Bob Bergeron, a quintessentially positive gay man, committed suicide.  He left his friends, past sex partners and acquaintances wondering why. But they are blind to the real issue. The obsession with youth, beauty and sex is a killer. In a suicide note, he summed up the homosexual lifestyle in a single damning sentence:

“It’s a lie based on bad information.”, he wrote.

NHS bans woman from surgery because her carbon footprint is too big — Socialized health care sounds appealing, provided you don’t know history and can’t think through the logical consequences of it.

This is the problem with socialized medicine. You pay your money up front and then later on the government decides how much treatment you get. They have no reason to be nice to you – you already paid them. They don’t get paid more or less based on the quality of care they give you. You can’t get a refund on taxes paid. And where else can you go? It’s a single payer system.

I saw this on a poster: Socialized medicine may kill you, but at least it is free.  Unless you pay taxes, then it just kills you.

Obama supports women at Augusta National as party courts women’s vote — So the Panderer-in-Chief tries to get some easy publicity on this, then stumbles when asked the obvious question of whether his strong principles would have even the slightest impact on his behavior.

When later asked if Obama would play at a men-only club, Carney said the president had not specifically addressed that scenario during their conversation on the subject.

Chalk this up to the most powerful man in the world weighing in on an issue with the equivalent passion of clicking the “Like” button on Facebook.  In other words, meaningless hypocrisy.

Bonus question: How many women does Obama golf with?

The president himself, however, has a well-documented history of excluding women, especially on the golf course.

Obama played 23 rounds of golf between January and October of 2009 before inviting a single woman to his foursome, the New York Times reported. This was emblematic of broader concerns over the president’s preference for the company and advice of men:

“The technical foul over the all-male game has become a nagging concern for a White House that has battled an impression dating to the presidential campaign that Mr. Obama’s closest advisers form a boys’ club and that he is too frequently in the company of only men — not just when playing sports, but also when making big decisions.”

“Women are Obama’s base, and they don’t seem to have enough people who look like the base inside of their own inner circle,” former Clinton press secretary Dee Dee Myers told the Times.

In a 2011 article titled “The White House Boys’ Club: President Obama Has a Woman Problem,” TIME magazine’s Amy Sullivan detailed the president’s fondness for male-dominated enviroments.

Yeah, there’s a real war on women going on, just not from conservatives.

From Obama is NOT a Muslim! You MUST believe me and help me convince others!

Regardless of whether Obama is truly a Muslim or not, he clearly, by his actions, is not a Christian.

And that’s all I care about.

I don’t care what people say they are.  Half the people in Hell say they were Christians.  Big deal.  They didn’t act like it.

And Obama, because he has no core values beyond those of a socialistic worldview, will, if pushed, shamelessly act like a Christian.  And if Obama starts acting like a Christian, my kingdom on earth will suffer.

And I don’t like to suffer.

The dictator was dictating that other people must, based on His Dictateness alone, pay for the sex needs of all women everywhere, including one Ms. Sandra Fluke, a 30-year-old privileged law student going to one of the most expensive law schools in the country.

In a fit of pride, I gloated a rhetorical question: “Where are the sane Americans?”

Remember?

And then I asked this fateful question:

Where is someone to stand up and tell Ms. Keely and Ms. Sandra to stop begging for someone else’s money and control their own friggin’ bodies or go pay for their own damn birth control?

Well, that’s when my luck turned, and out of nowhere surfaced One Sane American.

He is Conservative One, and he nailed this one: on what basis should taxpayers or insurers (i.e., other people) be required to pay for women’s recreational (and apparently uncontrollable) sex needs?

Obama is anti-choice?!

Yes — about school vouchers for poor kids, that is.  See No money for D.C. voucher program in Obama’s gigantic new budget, of course; Update: Meanwhile, White House to boost subsidies for Chevy Volt.  And I’m sure that he isn’t just doing that because of all his union donors.

Oh, you thought I meant anti-choice to crush and dismember innocent but unwanted human beings?  Don’t worry, he is still pro-choice on that.

 

If the media hadn’t died in 2008 . . .

. . . and weren’t so hopelessly biased, perhaps they would be asking Obama some different questions.  Don’t miss all of 15 Questions The Mainstream Media Would Ask Barack Obama If He Were A Republican. (Hat tip: Glenn)

I would add to this list: “How can your supporters call pro-lifers “zealots” when you were the lone voice against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act?  Aren’t you zealous, even for a pro-legalized abortionist, to fight for the right to kill infants who survived abortions?  And isn’t it zealous of you to fight for taxpayer-funded abortions that will make abortions far less rare and force pro-lifers to pay for them?”

During the practically endless series of Republican debates, we have heard almost every question imaginable asked to Republican candidates – if by every question imaginable, you mean horribly slanted, often irrelevant questions designed to make them look bad and help Obama. We’ve heard questions about contraceptives, religion, Newt’s angry ex-wife, Gardasil, etc., etc., etc. So, what would happen if the mainstream media treated Barack Obama the exact same way that they treat Republicans? The questions might sound a little something like this.

1) Numerous Mexican citizens and an American citizen have been killed with weapons knowingly provided to criminals by our own government during Operation Fast and Furious. If Eric Holder was aware that was going on, do you think he should step down as Attorney General? Were you aware that was going on and if so, shouldn’t you resign?

2) In 2010 you said Solyndra, which gave your campaign a lot of money, was “leading the way toward a brighter and more prosperous future.” Today, Solyndra is bankrupt and the taxpayers lost $500 million on loans that your administration was well aware might never be paid off when you made them. What do you say to people who say this is evidence of corruption in your administration?

3) Unions invested a lot of time and money in helping to get you elected. In return, they gained majority control of Chrysler, the taxpayers lost 14 billion dollars on General Motors, and General Motors received a special 45 billion dollar tax break. What do you say to people who view this as corruption on a scale never before seen in American history?

4) Through dubious means, you and your allies in Congress managed to push through an incredibly unpopular health care bill that helped lead to the worst election night for the Democratic Party in 50 years. Since the bill has passed, many of your claims about the bill have proven to be untrue. For example, we now know the bill won’t lower costs and despite your assurances to the contrary, big companies like McDonald’s say they may drop health care because of the health care reform. Since the American people have rejected your health care reform and it doesn’t do what you said it would, shouldn’t you work with the Republicans to repeal it?

. . .

15) Members of your administration promised that the trillion dollar stimulus would keep unemployment under 8 percent. Instead, we’ve had 35+ months of 8% and above unemployment. Doesn’t that mean we wasted a trillion dollars on nothing?
