Love your neighbor?

As a Christian I try to practice the teaching of Jesus Christ in my daily life. In a conversation with a lawyer (a religious lawyer), one who studied the Law as found in the Jewish Scriptures. The passage is found in the gospel of Luke:
Luk 10:25-27 And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” (26) He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” (27) And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” (English Standard Version)
Jesus then answered him that he had spoken correctly and should do as the law required. The Lawyer asked him, “Who is my neighbor”. Jesus then told a story about a man who had been left for dead on a road side by robbers. A priest walked on the road and saw the man lying there and crossed over to the other side so as not to touch the possibly dead man and become unclean. A Levite then came by also a form of priest, somewhat like the deacons in many churches, he too passed by on the other side.

Then along came a Samaritan, seeing the man he went to him, bandaged him as best he could and cleaned out the wounds. Put the man on his animal and took him to an inn. The next day as he was leaving, he handed the innkeeper a goodly sum of money and asked him to take care of the man, anything more that he had to do above the amount that he was given, the Samaritan said he would pay upon his return.

Now we must understand that Samaritans were hated by Jewish people and would normally have nothing to do with them. Jesus asked the Lawyer who was the one who was neighbor to the injured man. The Lawyer replied, “The one who showed him mercy.” He could not just say the Samaritan, they were lower than any Jewish person. He did however realize that Jesus was teaching him that all people are our neighbors.

Since we have removed God from our normal day, no more prayer in schools, no more Bible reading, God is no longer a part of our daily lives in the greater world in which we live. We now have 60 million dead babies, we have school shootings, we have gang violence, drugs are pervasive in our society, we have sexual promiscuity, with children having children, divorce rates have skyrocketed, and marriage is no longer something that is revered.

Evil is rampant in our society, and yet the government says they can solve this problem by just removing guns from law abiding citizens. Problem, then only criminals will be armed, police are armed but cannot come to your aid before you are killed by those criminals. Police are valiant men and women but they cannot stop a crime from happening, they can only react to the crime that has happened. It is my belief that we need to allow for teachers who are licensed concealed carriers to carry on campus, but it is also necessary that we rid ourselves of the “politically correct” crowd in our midst and wake up to the reality of the need for God to be a part of our every day lives.

If God is allowed back into our public square then the teaching of Jesus, of things like “Love your neighbor as yourself” and “Blessed are the peacemakers” will be taught and become a part of our very lives again. We also need to speak up when we see something that seems out of place in our neighborhood, to help avert a suicide, or murder. I know that growing up in New York City, I do not remember teen suicides, or death and destruction on every street. I also don’t remember the hatred I see today in our nation. I grew up in an integrated neighborhood, we played baseball, football, basketball together, there was no thought about black or white, just who was the best pitcher or quarterback. We fought with each other, but it was verbal, very rare was it a fist fight.

We had bullies, but we took care of that too, we stuck together and did what was necessary to take care of one another. We loved our neighbors, even the two German kids on the street, (Joke) we were German, Italian, Irish and African. We did not hyphenate our ethnicity, we did not need to, we were and are Americans. Ethnicity did not make any difference. I blame the government, liberal professors, and lawyers for the mess we are in today. We need more of Christ and less of division in our nation, because we are in the midst of destroying this Republic in which we live. Remember I said Republic, not democracy.

I cannot in good conscience ask God to bless America, for we no longer bless God which we used to do regularly. Our nation is now in the midst of total breakdown, and if we continue on this path we shall end up in groups and perhaps it will be another civil war, and this one will destroy our republic.

Christmas

As we again come upon the celebration of Christmas in the year 2017, I wanted to remind myself and those who read my words of what this season is really all about. We will read the story in our Church this Sunday night at our Christmas Eve Service. We shall again hear that the child is born in a barn, and placed in a feed trough because there was no room in the inn.

christmas-isaiah9_6

But will we hear that there is more to this story than just that a child is born, a Son is given? You see, the birth of the child, fully human baby boy, fully also GOD, is just one part of the story of Christmas. There is a great deal more to this story. There is the death of `100’s of children in Bethlehem 2 years later as the King Herod tries to find and destroy this baby who is the King of Israel in the line of David.

There is the growing up of Jesus in Egypt and in Nazareth in Galilee, becoming a carpenter, experiencing all the stuff that you and I experience. Hurt when you hit the wrong nail with the hammer, pain when a loved one dies, joy when there is celebration at a wedding. All the stuff you and I have in our own lives, happiness and sorrow, pain and suffering, he experienced.

Then, he experienced the worst pain of all, death as a criminal on a Roman Cross outside Jerusalem. That’s right he died a criminals death, because we, yes we humans were all guilty of the crime of rejecting God and His way of living our lives. Not the onerous laws that the Religious elites had stamped on society, no not that way. Jesus taught the truth of the way to live a proper God fearing life:

Mat 22:36-40 ESV “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” (37) And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. (38) This is the great and first commandment. (39) And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. (40) On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”

We don’t live that way, we see instead hatred, war, and famine, that is not what He came to teach. Since we humans seem to have a propensity to ignore that which we profess to believe, Jesus had to die to save us from our sins. He died for all, but we have to be willing to surrender our lives, our lusts our sins to God in the name of Jesus Christ, and name him as LORD of our lives, in order for us to become new persons in God’s Kingdom.

walk_1john4_10

You see, none of us is perfect, none of us live without sin in our lives, even after we accept the sacrifice for ourselves, we still sin. Jesus lived a sinless life, and therefore he could be our sacrifice. That is what the Christmas story really is all about. Yes it is a wonderful story about the birth of the child in Bethlehem of Judea, and all that goes with that birth. However, without the cross at the end of that life, there is no atonement for sin, we would have no hope.

I wish you all a blessed and Merry Christmas, and I pray that if you do not have a personal relationship with the one who we celebrate at this time, please get right with God. The scripture says: Rom 6:23 ESV For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The 1st Amendment to the Constitution is quite clear in that it states in no uncertain terms that it is aimed at the Federal Government, namely those who write law, the Congress of the United States. It does not stop the states from doing what they wish at Christmas or Easter or any other time of the year.

Yet here it is a city puts up a manger scene on the their property to celebrate the season, and some Grinch group decides they will threaten a lawsuit to stop this blatant move by the city to endorse Christianity. I wish these people would read the Constitution instead of making it say what it does not say.

Amendment 1 “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” That is quite clear and should not be made to say that a state or city or county cannot do what they please in regard to celebrating religion of any kind. Christianity included in that statement, after the ratification of the Bill of Rights, states still had state churches. It wasn’t until later in the 1800’s that States all gave up on State churches.

Just to help out you grinches out there read the 10th Amendment which is a part of the Bill of Rights. It says: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

Since Congress does not have the right to mess with our everyday lives in regard to our practice of religion, or peaceful assembly, or the right to petition our Government, nor to mess with the freedom of the press. We the people have that power to ourselves and our States. The other truth is that the news people need to get their act together and begin to report properly on the egregious examples of groups threatening to sue cities and counties, knowing that their bully tactics will make the things they don’t like go away, because the cites and counties don’t have the money to fight the battle.

It is high time that the press written, and broadcast, get their act together and begin to report the truth about these cases, shaming those who bring these lies out knowing that they can bully we the people, and our local governments into capitulation because the socialists are the ones with the so-called power. That is why it is time for term limits in Congress, we need to rid ourselves of lawyers who write the laws and think they are the royalty of our nation and they deserve their positions for 50 or 60 years. 3 terms for the House and 2 terms for Senators.

Support the Constitution Party, they are the ones who want to return our nation to the Republic it was originally founded as. Democracies always end in Chaos, Republics do not. Get rid of the career politicians, and you will get the swamp drained. Get sanity back into our nation, read and teach the Constitution of the United States and practice it in your own lives. You will be the richer for it, hold these grinches accountable, do not let them ruin your Christmas, or Hanukkah. Support the Constitution Party, we believe in term limits, we believe in a free and open society, and we believe that our Constitution is the Law of the Land, and that it has been abandoned by our politicians and the lawyers that suck us dry.

Leave the Dark Side and come over to the Light Side, learn of the true freedom that our Constitution guarantees. It is time to throw the bums out! Elect true Constitutionalists.

Partisan Politics – Now Hyperpartisan
October 21, 2017, 9:49 am
Filed under: Culture, Politics | Tags: , ,

I am old enough to remember when Democrats and Republicans actually worked together to solve issues, and coming from New York, I remember when there were 5 or 6 different political parties on the ballot in most elections. Around the time of Jimmy Carter, we saw a change in how politicians worked. It became a very Partisan race to get elected, no longer did we hear argument regarding issues, we started to hear muckraking, and sometimes even hatred between sides.

In High School we had partisanship, we went to baseball, football and basketball games and rooted our hearts out for our team. After the game we all went to the hamburger place for dinner, and had a great time with both our team and the opposing team members and fans. Today, after the game might see a riot break out and people actually get injured in the melee. It is even worse in professional sports, fans go to the opposing team stadium to root for their team, and might get beat up during or after the game, because of the hatred they each have for the other team.

I have been in jury trials, where the two lawyers worked hard for their client, and argued for their positions whatever the trial might be about, both lawyers argued and fought for their respective client, sometimes with real passion in their voice and manner. The reality is, lawyers, fight for the person paying them. You might see the two lawyers fight one time on one side of an issue and a month later on the other side and just as passionate on both sides of the issue. Money talks, and they have billable hours to fill with that money.

Notice that most of the denizens of the Washington D. C. House and Senate are lawyers, remember that money talks and lawyers listen and do what the money is telling them to do. Someone on one of the News shows once said that a good politician never lets a crisis go to waste. This is true, not only for the politicians but also for their partisans on the talk shows, news shows, and newspapers as well. If you want to know what is the latest crisis just watch the news, listen to talk, and read the papers. For Republicans it is the Washington Times, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh. For the Democrats it is Washington Post, New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, Huffington Post and others. Each hypes the crisis du jour, with of course their side of the story.

It has been said that there are 3 sides to every story, your side, my side and the truth. We tend to listen only to what we want to hear, and ignore the rest. I know that I have become tired of shows that have opposing sides on at the same time, and whichever side you are on then the show that you are watching will invariabley shut down the opposing view. This is true on left and right leaning shows. From Shaun Hannity to Bill Maher, the opposing side is to be made to look foolish.

Congress is the pinacle of this problem, we have gone from compromise to solve issues to hatred and inability to get much of anything accomplished. Listen to the rhetoric, especially in the House of Representatives. You have people writing bills of impeachment against the President, not for any crimes but for tweets that they found offensive to their side. Rhetoric from this or that politician talking about the President as if he was the biggest criminal in the world, meanwhile ignoring real issues, just trying to score political points so they can get re-elected. I was really struck by this hatred when Gen. Kelly White House Cheif of Staff, came to the press breifing this past week and talked about the attacks on the President and his phone call to parents or spouses of the 4 soldiers who were killed in Nigeria. One Congressperson claimed to have heard the President say something that she felt was insenstive to the parents of one of the soldiers.

Let me pause for a moment, she was not in the oval office, how did she hear this conversation? That has not been brought up in the ensuing CRISIS that has ensued for the statements she made in regard to this conversation. How did she hear this conversation? Anyway, this whole thing served to sweep away all the other news of this week, this should not have gotten in the way of honest reporting on what is happening in Congress, that is the passing of the budget in the House and Senate, which allows now for other bills to come up, such as tax reform. However, as long as these Professional Politicians can keep the crisis going, we the people will continue with hyper-partisanship and will attack our opponents. This hatred that has been brewing for many years now, has finally reached a point where we no longer talk to one another but rather we attack one another, not hearing what each has to say.

This hyper-partisanship is destroying our nation, we no longer speak with one another civilly, we rather attack one another. Look at the Governor of Florida, declaring a state of emergency because a man was coming to speak to people who wanted to hear him. The Governor was afraid that there would be rioting and mayhem because this man was what has been described as a white nationalist or white supremacist. The problem is simply that because people today do not want to listen to the opposition, we have riots in the streets. Now I don’t agree with what the man espouses, but in our nation he has a right to speak, and his supporters have the right to listen to him. If you don’t agree and don’t want to hear him, don’t go to that venue.

I have to admit watching the last couple of years when a conservative was going to speak at a university, people would show up in masks so you could not see who they were, and would set fires and beat up anyone who came to hear that person, breaking windows and just generally acting like the brownshirts in the 1930’s in Germany. We have the group Antifa, which claims to be anti-facists, yet they act like facists, wearing black, masked faces and showing up with baseball bats, balloons filled with urine, mace and other terrible things. They beat people with these weapons, hit them with their balloons and mace both civilians and Police officers. Those are definite facist tactics.

So what is to happen here in the USA? Do we continue down this road, with Professional Politicians manufacturing crisis after crisis just to keep us riled up, or do we work to change what we see happening? I believe it is time for us to work to change the system, electing people who are constitutionalists, who believe in our Constitution and are willing to work within its confines. We need people to stand for the rule of law, and to stand for the right of the people to live their lives peacefully. We need to rid our State Houses and our Federal Houses of these career politicians and put in place Term Limits for all politicians. This will also rid us of the monetary corruption, it doesn’t pay to buy a politician who will only be there a short time and then a new face will take his or her place. It is I believe time for Term Limits after all, Congress limited the President to 2 terms, because the knew it was not good for the executive to continue longer in office. FDR served too long and had begun to take more and more power to himself and the Federal Government.

What do you think, do we really need this partisanship to continue until we are so isolated from one another that our country will not be able to defend itself from enemies without or within. If we continue down this path, I do believe that Civil War will again spring forth and our country will be torn asunder, it will end in a blood bath the like of which we have never seen, because it will be between factions, black, hispanic, asian, white and whatever other faction these politicians can break us into, just so they can stay in office.

Comments are welcome! What do you think? I personally believe in the Constitution Party, I invite you to check them out, in Texas it is cptexas.us come and see what they are about.

POTUS – tweet war is infantile
September 25, 2017, 4:24 pm
Filed under: Culture, Politics | Tags:

Well here we are in a new week and the people of Puerto Rico are suffering greatly, “Rocket Man” is threatening to attack the US with nuclear weapons, the Iranians are ready to get back to making nuclear weapons themselves, and Russia is still pushing buttons trying to take over more of land belonging to Ukrainian people. What else can the President tweet about?

How about starting a tweet war about firing all the athletes taking a knee, or staying in the locker room until after the National Anthem? Gee that sounds really infantile, something a 6 year old might like to do, but the President of the United States? Please tell me it ain’t so, this is the leader of the free world, the one who is standing up to the bluster of others and knocking them down and he is engaged in this asinine tweet with the millionaire infants of the NFL?

I had thought that this man would get things done, so far we have seen the Medical care repeal and replace crash and burn twice and fixing for a third time. We still don’t have Tax reform although it is claimed that he will introduce his plan Wednesday, I’ll see it when I hear it. I was not a fan of this man when he ran, I voted for the right man for the job, the candidate for the Constitution Party of the United States. Could not, never, ever vote for a Democrat, no matter who it was, but Hillary??? NEVER.

It is interesting, I did not vote for Obama, but I hoped he would be a good President, one who would work to bring us together. OOPS not in a million years could this man bring us together, race relations were better 50 years ago than they are after the last 8 years of Obama. Now we have Trump in the White House, he started out fairly well, and his response to the hurricanes has been outstanding, but now he gets into a shouting match with athletes???? Why, they are within their rights as American citizens to protest what they believe is injustice. Of course if they believe that Black Americans are persecuted, why don’t they take some of their millions of dollars and help their fellow Americans get good educations so they can like Dr. Ben Carson, one day become all they can be. Taking a knee when the National Anthem is played is also infantile, it does nothing to change anything. Well it has changed one thing, I used to love watching a good football game, now I shut the TV off and go do something better with my time.

So Mr. President Trump, why don’t you quit this stupid game you are playing and actually care enough to get involved personally in the battle over Health Care reform? We need real reform, the Republicans are so screwed up they claimed for 7 years they would repeal Obamacare and yet you find that it’s like herding cats to get them to agree to anything. Of course they never had a real plan anyway, it was just a way to get re-elected and continue lining their pockets with the money they begin raising for their next bid to be re-elected as soon as they get to D.C.

If you are such a GREAT DEAL MAKER why are you sitting on the sidelines when you should be working to make a deal. Better yet why don’t you put up a real plan to fix health care yourself, have it written up and submit it to congress so they will have the real deal to work on instead of their make believe fix. I sure hope that your tax program will be in good shape when you deliver it to Congress although the Democrats will rip it up and spit it out, and the cowards in the Senate will kiss Chuck Schumer and then claim that you didn’t really care, you were tweeting about inconsequential nonsense while Rome was burning, then blaming Mitch McConnell and I am no fan of do nothing Mitch, but if you don’t get off the dime Mr. President, your plans will come to naught and we will have to find someone who will actually do the job that you claimed you would do.

You haven’t even been able to get rid of the Obama holdovers in your White House much less in the DOJ or should I say DOIJ? (Department of Injustice). Get on the stick Mr. President Trump, or you will become a one term President, like do nothing Jimmy Carter.

Ronald Reagan was a man who got things done, who shook up the establishment in D.C. you are so far, not much of anything other than HOT AIR.

Fiscal Responsbility Texas House

Filed under: Culture, Politics | Tags: , ,

The Texas House of Representatives was given a grade on their votes for fiscal issues in this past House session and special session. Passing grade is 70 % although I have to admit for me it is much higher, say 90%. However let us stick with the grades as given by Empower Texans, here is the URL if you want to see it for yourself: https://index.empowertexans.com/indexes/2017-index/house#tables

It is disheartening to see how many of those who claim to be Republicans failed even the 70% mark. However it is obvious that this would be the case, these people are really not Republicans, they are Republicrats instead. They kowtow to the Demoncrats and give away the house.

Of course as the speaker of the House Joe Straus doesn’t vote, but he is the one who decides what issues even get to committee, and what committee it is. He also is responsible for the chairs of each of the committees. He has said that he would not allow the governors agenda to be passed, even though it is the agenda that the people of the State of Texas, at least the majority since there are some democrats in the State, but the majority of the citizens wanted this agenda to pass.

As a member of the Constitution Party of Texas I am not surprised, since Republicrats and Demopublicans are really one and the same. It is time for this to change, we need those who believe in the Constitution as the law of the land, to come over to our party, join us and rid us of these career politicians who want to line their own pockets at the expense of we the citizens (taxpayers) of the State of Texas. Come and be a part of the solution, lets end this stranglehold that the Progressives have on Austin, let us bring back the Constitution and its guarantees of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. In other words get the government off our backs and out of our wallets.

Does it have to be R or D?

In the last Presidential election, we had 4 candidates running for the office. You had a Democrat, a Republican (Populist), a Libertarian and a Green Party candidate. Of course we all knew it had to be either the Republican or the Democrat who would win. The other two were too far out in the wasteland of not even getting into the debates. So which of the two REAL candidates did we want to be President of the United States.

Neither of these candidates was especially loveable, so we picked the one that was the better fighter of the two who we really did not want. Now we have a divided nation, and in many ways the left has decided that Bernie would have won so RESIST the Republican. We end up with riots in the streets, with the Antifa and BLM burning buildings, and cars and attacking anyone who is not on their side. Then you have the KKK, the Neo-Nazis and those who seem to think they are the better race (White Supremacists) on the other side. Personally I am amazed that we have so much anarchy, I was horrified at what happened in Charlottesville VA, especially that the Police did nothing until it was way too late to stop the mayhem.

They say there was no stand down order, that makes it even more confusing, why was that murderer with a car able to kill and maim so many people with that many police out there? This is not the first riot, we saw another in Phoenix this past week, again it was Trump supporters, that got caught in the street after the rally. Antifa with clubs and other fun things ready to do major harm to anyone who got in their way.

What is really so surprising to me is that there was an alternative candidate, running as an independent in many states, simply because of the stranglehold the Rs and Ds have on the election process. If you don’t have millions of dollars, so that you can pay each state to let you on the ballot, or pay to have professional pollsters out on the streets getting the thousands of signatures needed to get on the ballot you cannot run. In some states the candidates were actually able to run under their party label. Many times as write-in candidates, but they were on the ballot in all 50 states. I heard it said though that a third party candidate cannot win, we have to pick the lesser of the two EVILS!

Wake up America to the reality that we need to rid ourselves of the two EVILS! The 5th party in that race was the Constitution Party of the United States. The two parties that now run our nation are no longer Constitutional parties. Let us understand that these really are two EVILS in our midst. These two parties are the twins they are more concerned with their own pockets being filled than with doing what is right for the nation. They even exempt themselves from following the laws that you and I have to live under, they expect preferential treatment, they make obscene salaries, well above what you and I make. Not only that but they are now PROFESSIONAL POLITICIANS they assume they will be able to stay in D. C. until they decide to retire.

They are the ones who tax you and I to death, so they can live high on the hog in their little political bubble called Washington D. C. and many live in mansions not houses. It is time to wake up to the truth, take a look at your Senators and your representatives. How often does your Senator get out and talk to you, about once in every 6 years, when he or she is running for re-election.

Well the Constitution Party is made up of everyday people, when we run for elected office it is to be there for a term or two and then get back to living our lives at home. The State of New Jersey now has a Constitutional Party candidate on the ballot running for Governor, wonder if the Rs and Ds are even concerned about him? I hope they are because he has an excellent chance to become the next governor of that State. Matt Riccardi is that candidate, check him out. He believes in the Constitution and that will mean that he will govern with the rights of all people in his mind and heart. It cost a lot to get him on that ballot, but he is there and he will be running hard in New Jersey to become their next governor.

In the Presidential election of 1860 there were four candidates running for President, there were actually two democrats because the democrat party had split over the issue of slavery. So the Southern Democratic party ran John C Breckinridge who was of course a true southern Democrat. He held and wanted to keep the slaves he had. The Northern Democrats  ran Stephen A. Douglas, a moderate, he wanted to insure that slavery would be continued in the south to keep the nation together. Then there was the Constitutional Union they ran a man named John Bell, this was a party made up of the old Whig party and a couple of other minor parties. The Republican party which was formed in 1854 and by 1860 had replaced the Whig party. They ran Abraham Lincoln for President.

As we all know, Lincoln won that election. He was not well known outside his own State of Illinois even though he had been active in politics for a number of years. He won the presidency because people decided that he was the right man to bring the nation together. He was against slavery, and received almost no votes from the southern states, he actually carried only 18 states, but it gave him 180 electoral votes. He received 1,865, 908 votes or 39.8% of the popular vote. The other 3 candidates received the rest of the votes or almost 60% of the vote.

So although he was not considered a 3rd party candidate, he really was a minority candidate, he won somewhat like Trump did because he carried the states that he needed to win the election. Had one of the other men won, the Southern States would probably not seceded, and the war would not have happened and slavery would have continued. However he did win and 7 confederate states seceded prior to his inauguration. The original capital of the Confederacy was established in Montgomery, Alabama. Later it was moved to Richmond VA.

So why not start now to change the landscape of this nation, the Constitution Party of the United States may very well fit your belief structures a lot better than the two EVILS that we now have running our country. We believe in smaller government, because the Constitution spells out what the Federal government can and cannot do and we believe that it is the law of the land. It is time to rid us of the bureaucracy of Washington D. C. and return the power to the people of this nation. The 10th Amendment states that the powers not given by the Constitution to the Federal government, belongs to the States and the People. Lets take the government back into our own hands. Find out in your own State about your Constitution Party and join us in working to right the wrongs of the two EVILS!

For me it is the Constitution Party of Texas http://www.cptexas.us come and take a look and join us as we work to turn it around in Texas.
