It's Time To Stop Wasting Time!!!

Remember this?

Well, it just ain’t Harlem voters that were ill informed.

John Ziegler, a former libertarian talk radio show host in LA, has been doing documentary and interview videos for Citizens United. He recently made an appearance on FNC’s Hannity and Colmes to talk about his new upcoming video, "Media Malpractice... How Obama Got Elected" featured at the website:

The information he presented coincided with a Zogby Poll which described the following results:

512 Obama Voters questioned from 11/13/08-11/15/08 with a Margin of Error of +/- 4.4 points

Educational Demographics - 97.1% High School Graduate or higher, 55% College Graduates

Results to 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 actually said that!!

Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.

Only .5% got all of them correct. (And we "gave" one answer that was technically not Palin, but actually Tina Fey)

Here is the full promotional video:

A lot of people want to blame the voters for not getting informed, but I blame two groups:
- The main stream media which was overwhelmingly in the tank for Obama and did not give unbiased new reporting
- The INFORMED voters

I do believe that there were Obama voters who did know the issues and voted on him because of those issues. However, based on the Stern video as well as other factors, including the majority of news outlets who blatantly favored Obama, activist groups like and ACORN, contemptuous bloggers at the Daily KOS and the Huffington Post, etc., it is very clear that the majority of people who voted did not have an informed grasp of the candidates or the campaign issues.

Because of those factors, the real blame falls on us, the informed voters of this nation. A lot of us did get out there to try and help educate people (our good friend SNOOPER comes to mind); more of us joined the various political action committees to help with education, but most of us blogged and did our best from behind the computers we used. AND THAT IS THE PROBLEM!

We can blog all we want, but unless we actually interact with people, they aren’t just going to login and read stuff at Hot Air or Powerline.

There is such a culture of fuzzy lies out there that people just don’t know what to believe anymore when it comes to politics.

George Washington had it dead on correct when he said, “Promote then, as an object of primary importance, Institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as the structure of a government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be enlightened."

Our nation’s public opinion has been kidnapped, raped and murdered by those with an agenda that is not in the best interest of America, and by God’s will of His majestic grace, it is time that the people of this nation take it back.

We have got to convince our fellow Americans that “We the people” means the ones who do the voting, not the elites in the media, on Wall Street or in the respective governments of this nation. When someone has the courage to run for public office, and if they are granted the will of the people to be elected or appointed to that office, then it is to the people they owe their allegiances and it is the people to whom they serve!

We can start now, or we can waste our time complaining about why our guy lost and wait until the next primary season to promulgate truth and facts to the people of this nation.

Don’t wait for the candidates or their campaigns or even the PACs to spread the word. Get out there among your friends and neighbors and start campaigning for America’s future now. Help give them the tools they need to make an informed decision at election time. That way, even if the other guy wins again, at least it will be because people voted the issues and their conscience and NOT because they fell in love with an IDOL and couldn’t tell us about the candidate, the running mate or their opponents or the issues.

It’s time for us to do our part for America’s future and our fellow Americans!

It’s time for us to lead a new revolution to take back what has wrongly been taken from us!

It’s time for us to let the people in power know that their power is fleeting and is predicated on what WE say and do!

It’s time for us to bypass a recent campaign slogan and truly put COUNTRY FIRST!

It’s time for us to realize that it is up to US to live up to our rights of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness!”

It’s time for us to stop following the trends of this world and lead the world in truth and justice!

It’s time for us to stop taking notice of how wrong everyone else is and start standing up for what is right so that others will take notice!

It’s time for us to help every American understand again that the government of this nation is truly of the people, by the people and for the people!

Political Vindication and Jenn of the Jungle cover Prop 8 protest rallies in San Diego

The homosexual community has lost their marbles as a result of the passage of Proposition 8 in California, as reports of assaults against people of faith have exploded in the once golden state. Shane of Political Vindication took a trip down to San Diego this past Saturday to cover one of the many Gay pride parade's that have been going on through the country this past week, as the homosexual community continues its attempt to bully the American voter. Shane was able to capture tons of pictures and also took video footage of this event. If you get a chance it will give you some insight as the what the coming battles in the culture war will look like in this great country of ours.

Proposition 8 Foes Gather In San Diego To Turn Back The Clock (P.V. Exclusive)

Jenn of the Jungle also had some coverage at her site:

It's because we make it about us

In my men’s bible study group, we studied is 1 Samuel. And as much as this lesson is about me and you personally rejecting God as king, I also saw another parallel.

Israel Demands a King (1 Samuel 8:4-22)

Then all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah, and said to him, “… [M]ake us a king to judge us like all the nations.”

But the thing displeased Samuel when they said, “Give us a king to judge us.” So Samuel prayed to the LORD. And the LORD said to Samuel, “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them. According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt, even to this day—with which they have forsaken Me and served other gods—so they are doing to you also. Now therefore, heed their voice. However, you shall solemnly forewarn them, and show them the behavior of the king who will reign over them.”

So Samuel told all the words of the LORD to the people who asked him for a king. And he said, “This will be the behavior of the king who will reign over you: He will take your sons and appoint them for his own chariots and to be his horsemen, and some will run before his chariots. He will appoint captains over his thousands and captains over his fifties, will set some to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and some to make his weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers, cooks, and bakers. And he will take the best of your fields, your vineyards, and your olive groves, and give them to his servants. He will take a tenth of your grain and your vintage, and give it to his officers and servants. And he will take your male servants, your female servants, your finest young men, and your donkeys, and put them to his work. He will take a tenth of your sheep. And you will be his servants. And you will cry out in that day because of your king whom you have chosen for yourselves, and the LORD will not hear you in that day.”

Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, “No, but we will have a king over us, that we also may be like all the nations, and that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles.”

And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he repeated them in the hearing of the LORD. So the LORD said to Samuel, “Heed their voice, and make them a king.”

God predicted that there would be kings over Israel ~ (Gen. 35:11; 36:31; 49:10; Num. 24:7–9, 17; Deut. 17:14; 28:36).

Israel rejected God in favor of and earthly king

Samuel knew what having an earthly king would mean. Samuel obeyed the Lord by describing the behavior of a human king. A king would:
1) draft young men and women for his service
2) tax the people’s crops and flocks
3) appropriate the best of their animals and servants
4) place limitations on their personal freedom

And yet the people STILL wanted a king so they could be like the other nations around them who had a king.


Does any of that seem familiar?

America has forsaken God in favor of idols. And most recently, for an idol who has proclaimed “hope and change.”

But more specifically, look at the four points Samuel used to describe what a king would do:

1) draft young men and women for his service – National Civilian Security Force
2) tax the people’s crops and flocks – Raising of taxes
3) appropriate the best of their animals and servants – Socialism
4) place limitations on their personal freedom – Religion, speech, et al

Why don’t we just listen to God anymore?

Thank you, Veterans!

Thanks to all of our veterans who have served and are serving our great nation. HAPPY VETERANS DAY!!!



And thank you!

Chill Out, Fellow Christians! God Is Still In Control.

The following is influenced from something I watched on ”Wretched with Todd Friel”

Okay, so the election is over. The popular and the electoral votes show that Barack Obama is the presumptive president-elect (Presumptive because the electors haven’t actually cast there votes yet. And there are still also some factors that have to work themselves out legally). Yet there are still conservatives and Christians who are going nuts because a pro-abortion, Marxist candidate was elected. And it’s not the whiney “my guy lost” or “he stole the election” groans we heard in 2000. Christians are really wondering with great concern where this country will morally go with such a lefty in the Oval Office.

It’s time to chill out, folks! We had our chance to nominate a conservative candidate and elect a conservative president and it didn’t happen. Furthermore, we Christians know that God is in control and is sovereign over this world. Therefore, it is God who elected Barack Obama through the electorate.

But why would God elect a pro-abortion, socialist candidate?

We have to go to the bible for answers:

Submit to Government
“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.” – Romans 13:1-7

“[A]uthorities that exist are appointed by God.”
“[W]hoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God.”
“[H]e is God’s minister to you for good.”

Should the electors fulfill their roles and vote the way they were selected, Barack Obama will be an existing authority “appointed by God” And whoever resists that authority, “resists the ordinance of God.” Obama will be “God’s minister to [us] for good.”

YES, Barack Obama is a minister appointed by God and we should respect him in that office, along with his presidency, because he has been put in place by God to protect good people who are trying to keep the laws and punish bad people. Like you, I am having trouble understanding how this fits Obama, but it is what God has done.

Even though Christians didn’t get the candidate they wanted (and I’ll touch base on that further on), we need to behave much better than the liberals did when George W. Bush was elected in 2000. We should, of course, be cautious of the issues and actions of the elected, but we should not insult Barack Obama or his election as president because when we do that, we insult God (Romans 13:2).

God puts leaders in place for His purpose:

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” - Romans 8:28

And yet, the question still begs to be asked. WHY WOULD GOD ELECT A MAN SEEMINGLY SO UNCHRISTIAN AS BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA? I say this with the understanding that the example of a true Christian is the fruit of his salvation. Barack Obama, by supporting abortion and the tolerance of other immoralities, isn’t exhibiting the fruits of true salvation.

The Answer:

I have no idea why God put Obama in office. I don’t have a clue. But then it’s not for me or you to know anyway. God is the one who has the answers and it is He who makes the decisions.

“The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.” - Deuteronomy 29:29

John MacArthur explains it this way. “[T]hat which is hidden only can refer to the specific way in which God will carry out His will in the future, which is revealed in His Word and completed in His great work of salvation, in spite of the apostasy of His people.”

We cannot specifically say why God elected Barack Obama. But here are some options:

1. To Bring Judgment – maybe on you or me. Maybe on some other people in this nation. Maybe on the nation as a whole. America certainly hasn’t been honoring God in its tolerance of immoral actions and attitudes. With Obama, more abortions may happen and morals may continue to go south, but the reality is that this should remind us of our theology that we have an Adamic nature… a sinful nature… and God can bring judgment on us at any time in any way for HIS purpose and it is right and good. It may be tough to understand but it is truth.
2. To Raise Up Another Nation – God’s patience with America may have run out. If he can regret creating man (Genesis 6:6), then he can certainly regret starting a nation who has slipped so far away from honoring Him. There are other people around this world whose growth in Christ exponentially glorifies God more than any Christian or church in America. Maybe God sees fit to let that nation rise and give them a chance by getting America out of the way..
3. To Tear Down Idols. A lot of Christians have been putting their hope in politics and politicians lately to lead in a Christian way. And of course we should hope to elect those who desire to glorify God, but it is US who should be leading in a Christian way. For us to depend on politicians to do it for us is idolatry. When Christians get behind a candidate, they presume that the candidate is going to be the all and have all the answers to meet their “Christian” needs. WRONG!!! God is the One who we should look to for our needs, not any man.
4. To Cleanse the Church – Maybe God is going to allow persecution of Christians to happen. American Christians haven’t been living by what they preach to others and God may be trying to cleanse that poison from His people. There are so many who claim Christ and yet dishonor God by the way they live. They claim Christ, but don’t follow His example. They claim Christ, but don’t take seriously the Greatest Commandment (Matthew 22:37), the Golden Rule (Matthew 22:39), or the Great Commission *Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 1:8).

Whatever the reason Barack Obama was elected by God, we should not have angst because God is the one in control. So before we continue to freak out over the election, we need to get our theology straight and our worldview cleared up.

Instead of us looking at how Obama doesn’t add up as a Christian, maybe we should look at ourselves first to see if we are honoring God… THEN we can make that judgment on Obama (Yes, the bible does allow Christians to proclaim God’s judgment on others because God does demand the exercise of moral and theological discernment – John 7:24. But we must also remember that we must also deal with our own sin before we proclaim another’s – Luke 6:41-42).

There are conservatives who are not Christian who have asked Christians why they believe God would allow Obama to be president. And then the topic turns to the obligatory “Why does evil happen?”

God did decree us to evil as a part of His eternal plan. He did NOT bring it into existence. Evil is not the diametrical opposite to good, like cold to heat and dark to light. There is only a measurable level of heat or light and thus only a measurable level of good. But God is the one who sets that standard. And we certainly can’t meet that standard. Compare Exodus 20:3-17 with Matthew 5:17-48. They are the same message from the same God. But God was able to express the standard more thoroughly in Matthew 5.

So, why does God allow evil to happen?
1. So He can demonstrate His grace and salvation
2. So He can demonstrate His wrath in judgment.
3. So he can finally destroy it.

God allows evil like He allows so many other things we don’t understand… for His glory. We deserve so much worse than we get in this world because we are a wretched people who take pride in dishonoring God, and so when we wake up in the morning and aren’t in hell, it’s a good day…no matter how bad it seems to us.

So, if you are still flabbergasted by the election results, here are ten reasons why you shouldn’t be.

1. The Bible will still have all the answers – It is divinely inspired, divinely inerrant, and divinely sufficient to reveal to us how we should be living and loving,
2. Prayer will still work – God will always answer prayer in His way according to His sovereign will… just like He always has.
3. The Holy Spirit will still move – Remember that we Christians are inhabited by the Holy Spirit and since He lives in us, we will be moved to honor God for our good.
4. God inhabits the praises of His people – We shouldn’t stop praising God just because a liberal is in the White House. In fact, we should praise Him more to show our love and devotion to Him above all others. He will bless us in His way.
5. There is still God-anointed preaching – Amen! I heard some of it this past Sunday and expect to continue to hear it after January 20th, 2009.
6. There will still be singing of praise to God – Even if we don’t do it, the angels are and the bible says that if man won’t then the rocks and trees will cry out in praise of God.
7. God still pours out blessing upon His people – We should continue to be who God calls us to be and the blessings will pour in abundance.
8. There is still room at the cross – God provided a place for sin to be dealt with once and for all and we Christians should be sharing that whenever and wherever we can.
9. Jesus will still love you – We Christians should NEVER forget this. His love is eternal.
10. Jesus will still save the lost - Hallelujah! That is why God became a man after all… to seek and save the lost.

Where do we go from here?

We Christians should be living by the Word. Yes, we should be evangelizing to share the Gospel. But as long as we have people who proclaim Christ but don’t exhibit Christ, we won’t be taken seriously.

People will obviously believe what they see above what they hear, so we Christians need to make sure our actions match our words.

So stop your bellyaching and worrying about President-Elect Obama, Christians and get on your knees and then get out there into the world for His glory!

Congratulations Mr. President-elect!

Congratulations Mr. President-elect!

I am, of course, reluctant to accept that someone so different in political ideology from me has been elected to the highest post in the world.

However, as much as I decry an Obama presidency, I also celebrate this great nation. The people voted, the populace chose, the constitutionality of the Electoral College (even though not expedited yet), will be fulfilled. And a new leader of the free world, commander-in-chief, high executive has been called to service in the most peaceful transfer of governance of the greatest nation in the history of the world.

What’s more is that it IS an incredible testimony that an American of African ancestry has been elected… popularly and constitutionally.

And now that an African American has been chosen as the president-elect, there is no excuse for ANYONE of ANY race not to strive for the best this nation has to offer. There can be no circumstance preventing the pursuit, and not the gift, of happiness.

That holds value to me as a patriot.

So congratulations, Mr. President-elect!


I still do not trust that he will not lead us into a path towards socialism and that is unacceptable.

I still believe that he will fulfill every radical promise he made as that far left guy campaigning during the primaries.

I still believe that he doesn’t truly grasp the accountability and responsibility that he has been chosen to undertake.

So congratulations, Mr. President-elect!

Now to my fellow conservatives and conservative wannabees:

We have no one to blame but ourselves. We failed to prevent a moderate candidate from gaining the nomination. We failed by letting moderates and liberals hijack the Republican Party. We failed by letting pop culture rule our society instead of truth. We failed by getting caught up in the hype of an obligatory candidate who really didn’t deserve it. We failed by letting the press and the GOP dictate to us who our candidate would be.

We failed conservatism and by doing that we have failed our country.

There are some of you who have said that it took a Jimmy Carter to get a Ronald Reagan. And even though the merits of that statement are reassuring to us in the hopes for the future, they mean nothing without conservatives willing to stand up and take action for that future. And they mean nothing if there isn’t anything left of this nation for a true conservative in the mold of Reagan to be nominated.

Conservatives have got to back up conservative words WITH conservative actions. Conservatives have got to vet, choose, nominate and elect conservatives to public office AND HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE TO THOSE CONSERVATIVE IDEALS AND VALUES for which they were elected.

The election this year started something WE have got to continue. AND GOOD RIDDANCE! Conservatives have got to vote out those RINOs and ConWans who are compromising our nation by trying to appease all people.

If we want someone in the mold of Ronald Reagan, we have to work hard to show that conservatism is in the nation’s best interest for all people.

We have to act like conservatives who are proud Americans. We have to work in and of ourselves to show our fellow Americans that personal responsibility and accountability ARE the pursuit of happiness.

Frankly, John McCain did not inspire that. Yes, he is known for reaching across the aisle. But that is the crime of conservatism compromised. McCain would compromise to the left. The thing that made Reagan a great president of unity was that the compromise involved him getting the other side to reach across the aisle to work with him.

McCain chose to play it safe in the hopes of reaching independents. He took the conservative vote for granted before and after Sarah Palin was chosen as his veep pick.

And no, Sarah Palin shoulders no blame for this loss. Although, I am sure she would certainly hold herself accountable. But she was what brought conservative back into the GOP campaign. She is not perfect, folks, and there were so many that held her to an even higher standard than perfection. When she had a minor blemish, it was portrayed as a gaping and festering wound. Palin is an everyday American woman who was thrust into the national spotlight. Her political rise is one that can be compared to John Adams or Harry Truman. In my humble opinion, that is good company!

So congratulations, Mr. President-elect! You are what the American people wanted. We’ll see how long that lasts. I will pray for you when I pray for this country. And one of my prayers will be that God preserve this nation in spite of your presidency.

I still believe in this country

Nope. I am not thrilled about the results. And I still believe that this country has sung its swan song. And I thank the following states:


I don't "The Great Experiment" has now failed. But 232 years of fighting for liberty and freedom has taken a serious blow!

Congratulations to Mr. Obama

What's in a name? God knows.

We learned something incredible in Sunday School, and even with all of the election stuff going on, I haven’t been able to drop this. So I thought I’d put it down.

Let me start of by stating that I take no credit for any of this information. I honestly can’t give sources as they weren’t given to our class on Sunday.

My only prayer is that I am doing honor and giving glory to God in this presentation and that it be only as accurate as God directs me to impart.

Apparently, there are a ton of people I owe a big apology to. I cannot stand for anyone to say GD or JC without thought to the Creator of the Universe, or to use the name of that Creator as a curse word. I still believe it brings dishonor and displeasure to the LORD when we misuse those names. HOWEVER, my animosity towards this practice no longer comes from one of the Ten Commandments.

Nope, I am not disregarding one of God’s laws. However, there is a new understanding of what the Third Commandment actually means.

Exodus 20:7 is very familiar to us:

“Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.” KJV

One of those “thou shalts” that even has a “taketh.” Okay, let’s look at another translation.

“You shall not use or repeat the name of the LORD your God in vain [that is, lightly or frivolously, in false affirmations or profanely]; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.” AMP

This is a little better and even has that part about profanity, but let’s look at a more apropos translation.

"You must not use the name of the LORD your God thoughtlessly; the LORD will punish anyone who misuses his name.” NCV

Don’t use it thoughtlessly.

But use what thoughtlessly? God is a title after all and not a name. Did you notice that the word “lord” was in caps in each passage?

It’s the NAME of the LORD that is important here. We are supposed to pray in the “Name of the Lord.” But what is the actual name of the Lord?

When Moses meets God at the burning bush, the question of God’s name comes up:

“Then Moses said to God, "If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you,' and they ask me, 'What is his name?' what shall I say to them?" God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM." And he said, "Say this to the people of Israel, 'I AM has sent me to you.'" God also said to Moses, "Say this to the people of Israel, 'The LORD, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.' This is my name forever, and thus I am to be remembered throughout all generations.” Exodus 3:13-15 ESV

This is one of the first verse in which the name of God was first mentioned. Translations include Elohim, Eloi, Jehovah, Adonai, and of course “Yahweh.”

Whenever the word ‘lord” is capitalized, it was usually substituted from the original Hebrew symbols for YHWH (of course, Hebrew is written backwards from English). Eventually the Greek translation added vowels and the pronunciation became YAH-weh. This is where the thoughtless use of the name comes into practice. I mean this by stating that the Greek letters we see as consonants were translated from Hebrew vowels.

Therefore, the sacred name of our LORD should be pronounced “Ya-HOO-eh” but with a very throaty sound, letting it flow as a breath. Most scholars say that there really wasn’t a true pronunciation of YHWH and that when God spake, it came out to Moses as a breath. The name of the Lord is pronounced by breathing. Every time we breathe, we are pronouncing His name. That means that every one in the world, Christian, Jew or other has heard the name of the Lord. A newborn is spanked to breath, pronouncing His name. And we all will have our last breath, pronouncing His name.

“So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” – John 20:21-22 NKJV

But going back to Genesis, let’s look at what God did when He created man:

“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.” - Genesis 2:7 NKJV

The Lord spoke His name when He gave man life.

Furthermore, let’s go back just a little further in Genesis:

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him” – Genesis 1:27 NKJV

When you place the original Hebrew letters from top to bottom…

The Name of the Lord is the image of a man. And since we were made in His own image…

Every breath we take speaks His name and every thing we do is seen as His name.

Thank God for His Son, Jesus!

If it weren’t for our Savior, whose name is above all names, my thoughts, words and deeds would send me to hell.

It really is getting down to CHANGE!

In a previous post, I quoted Patrick Henry, who said:

“[I]t is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts.”

That quote is inspired by a bible verse: Hear this, O foolish and senseless people, who have eyes, but see not, who have ears, but hear not. – Jeremiah 5:21 (ESV)

Now the siren’s scream is being muffled by the truth of change. Barack Obama just can’t seem to exclude “change” when it comes to his tax policy.










$50,000 - $60,000 - $70,000


How low will he go?
