Alternative to the Status Quo

We have two political parties in this country vying for control of our national government. One is the Democrats, their candidate is a liar, conniver, power hungry woman named Hillary Clinton. The other party is the Republicans their candidate is a narcissist, hungry for power, businessman named Donald Trump. I want to state here that it does not matter which of them wins the presidency, it will still help the destruction of our Constitutional Republic, because neither of them wants to return to the Constitution, they are both power hungry people who will continue to grow the bureaucracy, and continue to spend like drunken sailors on their pet projects. Both parties are anathema to the Constitution and therefore to the prosperity of our nation.

I posit for you a third choice, a party that wants to put the Constitution back into its proper place, it is the supreme law of our land and both parties have ignored it for far too long. Much of what they have done has been unconstitutional and yet they continue to make the same moves as always. Pandering to whatever group they think will get them the best position to grow their power and prestige. You see, our nation was founded on certain principles which have been ignored and even derided over the last 100 years or so of this nation. Many people, especially talking heads speak of our democracy, they contend that we are a democracy when we are NOT a democracy. This nation was formed as a Constitutional Republic. The Federal Government was to be a limited government, and the power was reserved to the States and the People. Here is the preamble to the Constitution:

We the People  of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Note that this preamble, does not say we the members of the aristocracy, or the rulers of the nation, it says “We The People” so it is we the people who established this nation through the activities of those we elected to act for us in congress.

The Constitution Party has the goal of moving our nation back to that place where we the people, and the States in which we live and work have the power to govern ourselves. The Federal government has certain powers, but only those powers and no others. Instead of course they have continually grabbed more and more power because they say, “We know better how to help you live your lives.” They control every aspect of our lives and it is time we took back our lives from these politicians who think they are better than we are. The new Royalty if you will.

We have the power in the 10th Amendment to this Constitution to nullify any and all unconstitutional acts by the Federal government. We need to wake up our State governments and get them acting in our welfare, not to benefit Washington D. C. but to benefit We the People. This amendment to the Constitution reads: “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.”

Show me in the Constitution where the Feds have the right to tell us how to educate our children, that has always been a work of the states and local communities. Abolish the Department of Education (propaganda), and return to us the education of our children. Where is it in the Constitution that the President is to make laws? It is not, do away with this Executive Order that these men in the office of President use to make law and to abandon any pretense of Congress as the body that is charged with writing laws. The office of President is not the office of Emperor or King, but rather the man or woman charged with carrying out the laws of our land, written by our Congress, our Representatives that we have elected to act on our behalf.

The Constitution Party which you can find at cptexas.us that is of course the Texas state party, the National Party is: http://www.constitutionparty.com/ you will see that we do have a candidate for POTUS and VP as well.

Our party platform can be found at both places. Know that we believe in the sanctity of life, we also believe that government is local, not federal. It is also necessary that those who would serve as our representatives display exemplary qualities of honesty, integrity, reliability, moral rightness, fidelity, prudence, temperance, justice, fortitude, self-restraint, courage, kindness and compassion. If those who would hold public office cannot be trusted in private life, then they cannot be trusted in public life.

I urge you to check out this party, and our candidates for high office. We need your help to re-establish our Constitutional Republic, end our dependence on people who want to kill us and get us out of foreign entanglements. If these fit your idea of where our country should be going, please join with us to end the monopoly of the 2 party system.

All That I Have Commanded You – 4
September 21, 2015, 7:22 am
Filed under: Culture, God | Tags: , ,

We began this journey with the words of Jesus to his disciples as recorded in the gospel of Matthew and verse 20 in Matthew 28 says: “teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you.” That means to know and understand what it is that we are to do as we live our lives today, the church was to teach all those things that Jesus had given them to teach so that those who would come later would know what it was what our God wanted from us in the way of Holy Living.

This of course includes those things that came in the Law that God gave to His people, part of that law was the holiness code and I thought it might be helpful to us if we knew what that was and how it affects all the world today. The Jewish people were originally tasked by God to spread the word of God to all people, it did not happen, but that is another story for another blog. For now we know that God’s plan was for Jesus the Christ to come and live a sinless life under the code that he established, and then to die and be raised from the dead to pay for our sins and to seal the covenant of eternal life in the presence of God. This also requires that those who wish to live eternally in the presence of God believe that Jesus was the once for all sacrifice that was required to meet the penalty of death for sin.

So let us begin with Leviticus 18:4 and 5 where God says: Lev 18:4-5 NKJV “You shall observe My judgments and keep My ordinances, to walk in them: I am the LORD your God. (5) You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, which if a man does, he shall live by them: I am the LORD.”

Beginning with verse 6 we find law regarding sexual mores, basically it talks about having relations with near relatives, in other words incest, and that it is forbidden. This section ends with verse 18.

Lev 18:6-8 NKJV ‘None of you shall approach anyone who is near of kin to him, to uncover his nakedness: I am the LORD. (7) The nakedness of your father or the nakedness of your mother you shall not uncover. She is your mother; you shall not uncover her nakedness. (8) The nakedness of your father’s wife you shall not uncover; it is your father’s nakedness.’
Lev 18:17 ‘You shall not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, nor shall you take her son’s daughter or her daughter’s daughter, to uncover her nakedness. They are near of kin to her. It is wickedness.
Lev 18:18 Nor shall you take a woman as a rival to her sister, to uncover her nakedness while the other is alive.’

The term “uncover” means to have sexual relations with the person. These are all sins of incest God had started by pointing out that these sins were what the people had learned in Egypt and would see in the land He was going to bring them to, what we refer to today as Israel. Note that verse 6 speaks of having sex with you father or you mother, in all the other verses it speaks of women who are your blood relatives, or in-laws. Also you might notice in the last two verses that if you are married to a woman, you may not have sex with her daughter, nor shall you have sex with her sister. God covered all the bases with this sexual perversion stuff as we will see in the next section.

In verse 19 God says, when a woman is in her time of bleeding, what we now call a period, which is a natural thing, you are not to have sex with her. Then there is the idea of adultery, in verse 20 God says you are not to lie carnally with your neighbors wife.

Our God set up a way of life for us, and it is expected that we will live according to what our God has set up as the laws of the universe, (natural law), and of course in this world in which we live it seems we fully care not for natural law, but rather we do what we want because it gives us pleasure.

Today we glorify abortion as a woman’s choice, unwanted babies are to be thrown away, aborted as if they were just an infection that was being removed to return the mother to health. Lev 18:21 “And you shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the LORD.” Molech was the god of the Ammonites, and parents were to come to the city of Hinnom there the idol/statue of Molech had an opening in the back and a fire would be kindled there. The parents would then place their first born baby on the arms of the statue, and they were not allowed to show any emotion as the baby died from the extreme heat. A drum was beat so that the cries of the child were not heard. Next is one of the things that many people are unwilling to obey, and yet it is honestly in the law that God has given to us that we may live lives free from sin.

Lev 18:22-24 NKJV You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. (23) Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion. (24) ‘Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you.’

As much as those who find themselves with these tendencies and therefor hate those who point out that it is sinful to live out this sexual lifestyle, it is God’s word that speaks of it as being a sexual sin. It is no more of a sin that having an affair with a neighbor, or stealing money from someone or any of the other sins that we humans are so fond of pursuing, the bad thing that I see is that it is a sin and therefore is wrong in the sight of our God and leads to eternal life in the darkness of hell.

Admittedly we Church folks can get our indignation in an uproar over this sin, but it seems we don’t have a problem with adultery, or stealing from our company when we need some paper for a project we are involved in, or any of a dozen other sins that we commit daily. We talk about victimless acts, we think no one gets hurt but of course there are many victims of these sins, your wife or husband when you commit adultery, your wife or husband when you decide you are homosexual and leave your spouse to live with your partner, you think your spouse doesn’t get hurt? If you are a heterosexual person and have an affair, do you think you are not hurting anyone? What happens when it is found out? Your spouse and the spouse of the other person, or the families of both of you are hurt by your infidelity. There is no such thing as a victimless act, every action has ripples that affect those around it.

Try throwing a rock into a pond and watch the ripple effect, or like an earthquake under the sea, when it happens then there is a movement of water, sometimes catastrophic called a Tsunami. Sin is like that, whatever you do that is against God’s law has an affect on others and on yourself as well. If nothing else, you need to know that when you go against God, you are an enemy of God, that will cause ramifications into eternity. God does not consign you to hell, you do so by disobeying the natural law that God has proclaimed. I know, I was once an enemy of God myself, and until I came to understand that I was an enemy of God I thought everything was just fine. Hey, I thought I was having a good time, even when hung over the next morning, even when I couldn’t remember what had happened the night before.

When I finally realized what I was doing to myself and those around me, when I realized that my life was heading for disaster. When I heard the gospel and knew that I was a sinner and came to Christ for forgiveness and became a follower of Jesus, then I was saved and my life changed. I certainly will not claim to any sort of perfection, but I do try to live as Christ has for me to live and I know that when all is said and done, I will end up in eternity in heaven and not in hell.

I do hope you will read these chapters, as they give a map to a way to live as Christ would have you live. These are not difficult as they are natural law, law set in motion by God at the creation of the universe. We have decided that we know better than God, but I have to say, I have not heard of any scientist making something out of nothing. I know they have figured out how to clone an animal but all the work they have done on gene therapy and stem cells have created problems and with stem cells, the healing has come not from infant cells but from adult cells.

Chapter 19 speaks about rules for everyday living again starting off with I am the Lord.
Lev 19:1-3 NKJV And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, (2) “Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy. (3) ‘Every one of you shall revere his mother and his father, and keep My Sabbaths: I am the LORD your God.

Now I know that it is not always easy to revere our parents, many of us have grown up with parents who abused us mostly in verbal, or physical punishments that left scars on our bodies. Interesting though is the truth that it was also that way in the time of Moses and the time of Jesus and down through the ages to today. Though it is difficult, we must love our parents just as we must love our neighbor, in that way they may realize that they too need Jesus as savior and Lord. We must, as Christians, know that God has a plan and even though we don’t understand it, or even know what it might be, God does, and things will work to good for those who love the Lord.

Verse 19:4 says “Do not turn to idols, nor make for yourselves molded gods: I am the LORD your God.” The second of the 10 commandments says the same thing. In this world of ours, we have many idols, political persons, movie stars, musical persons, baseball, football and of course, money, power, looks, pornography, and the many gods of this world. We are told that we are not to have anything in our lives that comes between us and God. In the history of the people of Israel we find that they too had many gods and that they abandoned the worship of I AM to worship the local gods. When they became a people who worshiped the local gods, they also left the path of God, and became apostate, God then allowed them to be taken off into captivity. This happened to Israel many times over centuries, finally the Romans sacked Jerusalem and sent them into the rest of the world, for almost 2000 years. Yet they are today a secular nation and soon again there will be war over the land, the hatred for the people called Israel is beginning to cause great strife in many places in today’s world. God is still working to save his people from their sins.

We too, have been mightily blessed in this land by God, and we are now an apostate nation, we claim to be Christian, but we do not live as Christian people. We too follow the gods of this world, beauty, fame, fortune, power as well as perversions and sorry to say, legal murder of innocent lives, almost 60 million since Roe v Wade. God said that his people were not to sacrifice the children to Molech, yet they did that, and today we do it to the idol of “choice”.
Verse 11 of Leviticus 19 says: “You shall not steal, nor deal falsely, nor lie to one another.” The eighth commandment of the 10 commandments says that you shall not steal as well. The ninth commandment says: “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” However, our government steals from us, by taxing our earnings, and our commerce. They take from working people supposedly to give to the poor, yet the poor continue in poverty and the ones who get the money are the government. The richest area in the nation today is the area around Washington D. C., please note it is not D. C. itself, for the people who are the rich, the politicians, the lobbyists and contractors don’t live in D. C. but rather in the counties in Virginia and Maryland. Congresspersons and Senators make exorbitant amounts of money that we the taxpayers are taxed to maintain their lifestyle. The money goes to these people not to the poor.

Our President lied to us, dealt falsely with us in order to pass his ordinances and laws to take even more money from us to give to the lobbyists, to corporations who support him and the rest of the political class. I remember when people did not need a pile of contracts to buy a car, I watched my father in the 1950’s buy a car, on a simple handshake with the dealer. When the car was ready for pickup he paid for it and again shook hands with the dealer and left with the car. Today it takes half a day to get approved for credit, then fill out the paperwork and sign all the copies that have to be signed, then wait while the dealer processes it all. The reason is lawyers have taught us we cannot be trusted to tell the truth. So many of us no longer do tell the truth. Yet we call ourselves Christian.

How often have you picked up a box of paper clips from your place of employment and taken them home, or maybe some staples, or paper for your printer at home. Your excuse being, my employer won’t even know its gone, they have plenty of it anyway. That too is stealing, and lying, and dealing falsely. Yet we call ourselves Christian.

You see, God wants us to live by his rules. We Christian people have decided to live by our own rules, and have become Christian in name only. Like politicians we say one thing and mean another, trust is no longer a way of life, rather we lie, cheat and steal, it has become a way of life in this country. We pervert the law, of man and of God, so that we can live as we please. We have decided that we really don’t need God, we can make our own decisions and live our lives as we choose. In the process we have cheapened life itself, we are content to let others work, while many of us just sit around and enjoy our food stamps and welfare checks. Thinking the government will take care of us, when in reality it is the working class the laborer and the business owner that is paying the government, and the government then says they are helping the poor. Lies all around, theft all around. We used to be proud to work, and to do a good job at whatever we did, no longer true.

We are an apostate nation, and God will not continue to bless us, like the Israelite of old, we too are cruising for a bruising. We have already experienced a black eye, when the enemies of God and man took down the World Trade Center. When will America wake up and return to God? I think it is not going to happen until we are defeated by our own pride and by an enemy that our government won’t even acknowledge.

Legalize Marijuana use?
May 7, 2015, 11:11 am
Filed under: Happening Now, Politics | Tags: , , ,

Marijuana, is a very dangerous drug, for one thing it has 20 times the amount of carcinogens than tobacco, Lung Cancer anyone? Colorado is learning about this drug and auto accidents (DUI). There have been a few studies that show just what kind of problems arise from the use of this drug. Here are just 2:

“Cannabis–‐Related ED Visits Rise in States With Legalized Use,” Academy of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP), 25th Annual Meeting, (www.ibhinc.org) December 2014

“Cannabis Use Is Quantitatively Associated with Nucleus Accumbens and Amygdala Abnormalities in Young Adult Recreational Users,” Journal of Neuroscience, 16 April 2014, 34(16): 5529-5538

The problems are escalating greatly in states that have legalized use of this drug. In young people there are definite changes in the brain. Please also note that with prolonged use, you will probably develop the old “Cigarette Cough”, this leads to lung problems later in life such as Emphysema and cancer. Today’s cannabis is much stronger that it was in the 60’s. In some strains up to 30% stronger THC. This is a drug that leads to all kinds of problems, not the least of which is psychosis. The Emergency Rooms in places where cannabis is legal, are experiencing a big uptick in overdose cases, where psychosis is one of the many problems seen.

Now I am not against people being able to do those things that seem right to them, but I am also not willing to see medical costs skyrocket as this stuff gets more and more use across our nation. There is a reason for the ban on these drugs, and it is because of what they do to people. Read the history of why drugs were banned in this country over a hundred years ago, it was not a pretty picture.

These politicians don’t care about the science, they only care about taxing the industry created by the legalization of this drug. They claim that they are doing away with crime, but the black market is thriving, because of the taxes on the product. Criminals don’t pay sales tax. The politicians (criminals) that want to legalize this stuff are only interested in their own ability to control the population, they don’t care that it will cause people to die horrible deaths just as they yell and scream about tobacco. Check out what the true science tells us, then, if you want to kill your children, destroy more lives including your own, continue down this path. The libertarians are wrong on this one, I like Stossel but he is dead wrong on legalization of drugs.

Republicrats or Demopublicans?

I read an interesting piece today by a man running for the Senate in Kansas, his name is Dr. Milton Wolf. He basically makes the case that “R” does not necessarily mean that the man is a conservative in the mold of Ronald Reagan. If we look at the last time Republicans were in full charge, we find that spending was increased more than any other administration in history, we had bailouts, increases to Medicare and a dozen other “programs” that helped to send us into deeper debt. Of course now there are Democrats in charge and they have spent more that any other government in the history of this country. They have sent us into a 17 plus trillion dollar debt and still counting.

Here is the address for Dr. Wolf’s article. He tells the truth about the two parties that are becoming one party, it becomes harder and harder to tell them apart. The Republicans have surrendered their principles and become Democrat light. When I hear Democrats saying that John Boehner is not one of those evil conservatives, it tells me a whole lot about who and what he is and it is not Republican in the classic sense of the word. Looking at the Senate we have McConnell and Cornyn in bed with the Democrats. In the house we have Ryan who decided to write a spending bill that rips the retirement funds from WOUNDED WARRIORS men and women who served honorably and were injured in the line of duty, and will not receive the retirement benefits they were supposed to receive. All because this congress wanted to show how they could work together to spend more money and kick the can down the road to avoid FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY.

Wake up people, your government is taking away your freedoms, read, NSA, IRS, Border Patrol. I have added the Border Patrol because they are becoming an army unto themselves, they don’t even work the border anymore, they are 40,50 even 100 miles away from the border. They stop law abiding citizens and look into our vehicles, ask us if we are citizens, and even have dogs sniffing our cars and trucks. Unreasonable searches are the rule of the day.

The government wants to split us up into groups, so that we will not watch what they are doing to us. The Government continues to grab more and more power every day, killing our businesses with hundreds of pages of useless regulations, and of course let us not forget the “Affordable Care Act” AKA Obamacare. Over five million people have lost their health care that they wanted to keep, more will lose theirs as well over the next couple of years. $717 million dollars has been taken out of Medicare to pay for this boondoggle that was forced upon us by this President and his goons. My monthly Medicare Advantage plan cost has increased this coming year to help offset the costs associated with the Medicare loss of funds. Folks if you have a true conservative, or a good libertarian running for Congress or the Senate vote for them, in my State it was Ted Cruz, we need another one this year to defeat RINO Cornyn, so we can stop the bleeding.

Piles of Scandal

Here is another one for the IRS and the Congress since this has apparently gone on for at least the last 14 years. The article points out that there are thousands of people requesting the IRS issue an ITIN to them. There are thousands living at the addresses in question. Apparently in 2011 there were 23,994 unauthorized (illegal) Aliens living at one address in Atlanta GA. These folks received a combined total of $46,378,040.00 in refunds to these 23,994 individuals living at this same address in Atlanta. There were also 3 other addresses in Atlanta that held over 1,000 persons living at them, who received millions more in refunds.

That is our Tax Dollars going to undocumented, illegal or as the IRS puts it unauthorized aliens, I wonder which of the Cartels in Mexico got the money, or maybe we should look in the politicians in Mexico to see which of them received the money. I am amazed that our government seems to be working against itself and the American people. INS is supposed to stop illegal persons from entering our country, the IRS helps them to live here illegally and even pays them for doing so. Of course these days the Obama Administration has hogtied the INS so they can’t enforce the law anyway.

They just keep piling it up, deeper and deeper, when does the pile get to the point of stinking so bad, that the outrage of the American People boils over? I think it should have already reached that level, if it gets any deeper, FEMA will have to send out crews to rescue the country, oh, I forgot, they are out shooting up thousands of rounds of bullets to make sure they can control the population so that the outrage will be controlled. After all, the government has to have its own private army you know, and then of course, they have their secret police, spying on American citizens in direct contravention of the 4th and 5th Amendments to the Constitution. Then there is the BATFE and the various SWAT teams around the country, breaking into people’s homes and seizing their goods under warrantless searches, because they may, MAY have a gun in the house.

It is past time to rise up and demand that the government of the United States get the blazes out of our lives, shut down the NSA and the IRS. Bring in the Fair Tax or the Flat Tax, but get rid of the Gestapo that is the IRS. Get rid of the Secret Police that go under the moniker of NSA, curtail the BATFE, and the SWAT goons who rip up people’s homes and lives with phony raids against innocent civilians. Return the police to being police instead of a small army inside our cities and towns. It is past time to get some spine people, stand up and be counted or continue to give up what little freedom you have left.

What Can You Do With A Drunk Driver?
April 14, 2013, 4:16 pm
Filed under: Culture, Politics | Tags: ,

It appears that there is very little you can do with a Drunk Driver, especially in Texas. Seems that we have a Democrat member of the Texas House, and the Democratic Travis County DA, both of whom have been arrested for drunk driving. The DA says she won’t resign, of course she won’t be able to try any cases for drunk driving. Now the State Representative is another story, she struck another vehicle, which in turn hit a person on a bicycle. Everybody went to the hospital, she was arrested and then released. She asked to address the House not to resign, she just apologized for having caused such a mess. She regrets having been caught. Understand that this woman is the chair of the ETHICS committee.

neither of these politicians are going to resign, even though people in the case of the House member were injured. The DA of course is the chief prosecutor in Travis County, but she seems to feel that she too is above the law. I do hope that both of these people will be prosecuted and penalized to the fullest extent of the law. I also hope that those who had the temerity to give the House member a standing ovation, and flowers, pay a price for doing so. I cannot understand these politicians, but I do think it is time to move them ALL out of office.

I have become increasingly disgusted with the political royalty, at least that is how they act. It seems that they are convinced that they are immune to the laws that they pass, that only we the lesser persons in the country have to live under the oppression of these people. Whatever happened to Government of the people, by the people? Now it seems to be government of the elites over the people. They ignore the laws, including the Constitution, we the people need to reassert our position we need to be the ones in charge, these politicians need to be reminded that they work for us. We also need to begin to term limit these people, no more than 2 terms for any politician. No pensions either, let them go back to their home states and get a job, like you and I have to do. Politics is not a career, it is a time to serve the Nation, then return to real life. Perhaps if these people realize that they will have to live under the laws they pass, it will change their minds about who they are, and what kind of laws they pass.

IMF wants us to pay $1.49 a gal tax
March 30, 2013, 3:43 pm
Filed under: Culture, Happening Now | Tags: , ,

The International Monetary Fund wants us to pay an extra $1.40 a gallon of fuel so that we can help save the environment. Just listened to Cavuto and Charles Payne talking about this issue. It seems that the IMF wants us to pay another $1.40 a gallon for our gasoline, in order to help take care of the social programs in Europe and of course to help fight Global Climate Change. I don’t think this will actually happen, but just the thought that these people think that our government would actually allow this to happen, is scary.

I remember that when Obama was running for President the first time, he spoke about prices going up because he wanted to change our energy picture. Get rid of fossil fuels and use “solar, wind and other types of fuels.” Since then we have seen pump prices go up over $3.50 a gallon, this would drive them up to $4.90 a gallon. Who would it hurt, the poor, and the middle class, jobs would be lost because businesses that depend upon shipping from their suppliers would have to lay off, or at least not hire workers. So now we have Obamacare that has all those taxes that we are just beginning to see, and the administration is also talking about new taxes on gas as well.

When is our nation going to wake up and realize just how intrusive this government is becoming, how much of our lives are now being run by government intrusion. If you live in New York City you know how much the government is intruding into your private life. New York State passes a law that they cannot enforce, there are no 7 round magazines, so they have to back off their law that says you have to use a 7 round magazine.

Politicians grow government, unless they see that the people have had enough and want them to stop interfering in our lives, they will continue until we are like France or Greece.
