Olympia Snowe Killer of Freedom

Many of us will have forgotten it was a Republican who foisted Obamacare upon the American people.  Her vote brought it out of committee to the senate floor for a vote.  Had she not voted for this bill, it would have died.  Olympia Snowe’s legacy will forever be the demise of our freedom and government so out of control that it will shackle all generations after us.  The GOP does not have high ground to stand on.  They are the party of the good old boy establishment.  Trent Lott who said,

 “We don’t need a lot of Jim DeMint disciples,” Lott said in an interview. “As soon as they get here, we need to co-opt them.”

It’s easy to see Mr. Lott doesn’t stand with citizens who are tired of being shackled with over spending and regulations.  NO!  He likes keeping his power and burdening the American people as long as he has his.

Lindsey Graham evoked Jesus Christ as his reason for voting for Elena Kagan.  See Michelle Malkin’s article.

Orrin Hatch openly admitted, “I despise these people,” referring to Freedom Works and tea party citizens hoping to remove him from office.  Once again the good old boy mentality rages when they are threatened by the lowly citizen.

The votes giving the President his “traditional right” to have who he wants on the Supreme Court of the United States is an affront to every freedom loving person who lives under the flag of this country.  The senator who votes a freedom killing bill out of committee is an affront to all citizens who love our Founding Fathers and Constitution.

Today America may have died and I see no real help coming from the GOP.  Romney is Obama-lite.  I don’t trust him.  But what is our choice? If we leave Obama in place we will be full-blown Communists by the time he ends his reign.   The GOP will only slow the demise.  The only hope was to remove people like Hatch, Graham, Snowe and those of their ilk.  I don’t hold much hope.

Those who voted for Barack Obama because they wanted to be part of history have done exactly that.  They have become partners with weak-kneed justices and politicians who long ago forgot their oath of offices to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, as written, to protect our Republic.

My neighbors voted for this man.  Now some regret it.  Too late!  You’ve stolen my grandchildrens’ future, freedom, and economic prosperity.

I believe the quote from Scott Horton, in Harper’s Magazine, July 2007 says it well:

As Benjamin Franklin left the Constitutional Convention, on September 18, 1787, a certain Mrs. Powel shouted out to him: “Well, doctor, what have we got?,” and Franklin responded: “A Republic, if you can keep it.” Like many of the Founding Fathers, he was intensely concerned that the democratic institutions they were crafting would deteriorate over time. In particular, they were concerned—and talked ceaselessly during the convention about the risk that, under pressures and exigencies of war, a tyrant would collapse their system into something closer to the monarchy that they had just defeated. Over the intervening 220 years, the republic has maintained itself, though not without close calls. And today, while we face what may be the gravest challenge in the nation’s history, our media will serve up the next chapter in the life of Paris Hilton.

Little did we know the “war” would be within our borders perpetrated by our own government against its citizens.  Olympia Snowe was part of that war against us.  Her legacy of death to this Republic will live on.  Never forget her.  Never forget she cared not for us or our children.  She cared only for power.

Bachmann and Our Generation

Michelle Bachmann bowed out of the 2012 Presidential race today.  Her parting speech from the campaign, in my opinion, will be one for the history books.  Should Obama win re-election and our country becomes completely socialized, her parting words will haunt this country for generations to come.  She spoke eloquently of our Founding Fathers, their families and the sacrifices they gave for our freedom. Bachmann’s motive for running for President always seemed about the country not herself.  The impetus was Obamacare.  She, with many of us, fear that freedom is being taken from people to choose their medical care for themselves. Worse yet, you must purchase a government program just because you are a citizen of the United States.  We’ve never been a nation that says you must purchase anything to be a citizen of our country.  What has  brought us this far?

My contention, and you won’t like this, it’s our fault.  We have slumbered with our eyes open while a corrupt educational system and self-absorbed adults have produced a selfish generation of takers. They have played on our most base human characteristics— Me, Myself, and I. It’s the “get out of my way” generation.  They will take it from you if you won’t give it to them.  Occupy Wallstreet mentality is a powerful image of the inward thoughts of these type of people.  Unfortunately, they are now leading this country. The sixties generation.  It holds no standard but feigned compassion for the environment, animals and other pet projects. Yet, helping a neighbor whose barn has burned? Only if the cameras are present.  Any names come to mind? Jackson, Sharpton, and myriads of others in it for themselves.  Other than small islands of those who care for no recognition, and truly care for others, this generation has become altogether corrupt.

We must all look in the mirror, the reflecting mirror of Truth. The only one I know is the Word of God that is a two-edged sword of condemnation and saving comfort. It reaches into the depth of our being, our mind and soul, but only if we allow.  Look at ourselves as God sees us, not some pundit, neighbor, family member or friend.  What is the plumb line we lay against our lives and motives? In our private moments we know the truth of our hypocrisies, our pride, and self-motivating actions we call – good. That is if we’re honest. We see our politicians constantly say “look at him, I’m better than him.”  Easy when the plumb line is crooked, isn’t it.

Until our nation comes to grips with our personal failure of setting aside the Creator who gives us our inalienable rights, we will not right our course. Our Founders knew that. They sought Divine intervention and wisdom to birth this nation of individual freedoms and responsibilities. The problem is responsibility has become a dirty word.  We speak of rights not responsibilities.  It makes us a weak nation. Some use liberty as license. If we continue to seek mans approval we are doomed. They will fail us most of the time.  The Psalmist spoke these words in a time of trial:

Psalm 108:12 (NASB77)
12 Oh give us help against the adversary, For deliverance by man is in vain.

We continue to make the same mistakes. We give power to politicians making promises and giving speeches. Tell me, what have you seen lately from the politicians that lead this country? Are you comfortable?  If so, perhaps we need to look again at the mirror or truth.  Do you feel that freedom is abounding or do you feel like chains are being added daily to the shackles they are providing? They promise deliverance from any all wrongs perceived, manufactured, or real. NO man or woman can do that.  They count on us being sound-bite voters.  Buy the line today, buy the image today, what can I promise you to get your vote.  The honest candidate is hard to find.  I believe Bachmann was one of them.

Our Creator is a forgiving God. He invites the apostate person and nation to come to Him, to turn around. It is a generous, undeserved promise, that should break our hearts.  He says:

“I will love them freely.”   Hosea 14:4

We need to seek our injured Father’s face. Again David said:

“When You said, ‘Seek My face, my heart said to You, Your face Lord, I will seek’.”

I like Michelle Bachmann’s words as she exclaimed her bold confidence “in the God she serves.”   The Lord does give us good men and women who serve others and their countries.  They are far and few between in this “crooked and perverse” in our generation.
