The article on our Founding Father's and the Declaration of Independence was excellent Ed.
Let us all remember on this 234th Independence Day what great God-fearing men we had who gave us these profound documents including our own Constitution. I must say however that the men today (including a high percentage) of pastors are too fearful to speak out against our government. The pastors have put
themselves into a position with their 501.c3 applications so they cannot speak out, following the lead of a tyrannical Washington DC. to save money and to be tax exempt. That is another whole discussion in and of itself.
Obama and the Republi-crats want to now TAX, TAX, TAX, with the new Cap and Trade legislation! What a travesty and what a takeover this will be if NOT STOPPED.
The average American will not be able to heat his house, cool his house, and keep the lights on, let alone pay property taxes. We ARE IN A DEPRESSION FOLKS!
I must say to all America black is white, and white is black, and furthermore YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH. We DO NOT have a two-party system anymore, yes, it is a one party system which has two heads, deformed, stealthful, liars, big money, God-less, and most of all TYRANNICAL.
American people who don't want to get too involved to risk their jobs, wealth, their property, two to three automobiles, four dinners a day, $140 dollar sneakers, $400 dollar video games for their dummed-down public fool system kids, 4 televisions, sports channel, and God forbid their alcohol consumption.
This tax and spend District of Columbia MUST BE STOPPED AND AMERICANS NEED TO BE EDUCATED as they have fallen asleep. This includes (RINO's) Republican in name only, and Democrats. Partial-birth abortion has been with us since 1973 and every Democrat and Republican Administration since has not stopped it as we have murdered 40-60 million babies legally. God has not fallen asleep as "HE NEVER SLUMBERS NOR SLEEPS" HE will judge America for these murders of the innocent.
This may very well be our last Independence Day if all Americans do not come together and tell DC enough is enough as we TOLD THE BRITISH! I tip my hat, support, and I'm thankful to all those pastors and Americans who have risen up, including tea-party people who have left their COMFORT ZONES and are NOT FEARFUL and said "NO: enough is enough. Get involved on a local level and branch out and tell these Bureaucrats to stop, or WE WILL STOP THEM. They are the minority and WE are THE PEOPLE-the majority, and flood DC with faxes, e-mails, letters, phone calls, real marches and SPEAK OUT and say NO to these liars and whores, let them know we will not stand for this anymore!!!
Don't be timid, Don't be a follower, Don't be lazy, Take back America, Yell Jesus Christ is our only KING and boot their sorry behinds out lest a more dire consequence befalls all of us.
TIME IS SHORT, THE FEDS HAVE A LONG ARM
AND IT NEEDS TO BE CHOPPED OFF starting today.
I would like to be hopefull and think that the majority of people and pastors across this country would be like minded with what you say here but I don't think that's the case.
History shows us this. The nature of man has not changed. Most of the population are scared little wimps who will cower at the sight of their own shadow. The Revolutionary War was fought by less than 10% of the entire American population. What does that tell you? The majority were either scared, didn't want to be bothered, sided with the British, didn't care, were afraid of losing their possesions, or whatever. I am not talking about people who were unable to fight or contribute in some way....I am talking about people who WOULDN'T.
Less than 10% fought, risked everything, so that the rest of the UNDESERVING people could have freedom THAT THEY DIDN'T DESERVE! They got something they weren't willing to fight for. It was a gift from the blood of the minority.
Man has not changed much since then. That is pretty much the description of America today. Most do NOT deserve the freedom they have had nor the little that's left.
Fortunately, impossible things can be accomplished with a "small dedicated group of people" who depend on GOD for their success. The key is GOD, not man. There is an old saying....If GOD'S not in it, you won't win it.
The pastors in this country were duped into applying for the 501.c3 tax exemption because of their ignorance. Their accountants and lawyers, trained by the system, talked these ignorant into it. The fact is , The Constitution automatically exempts all churches and schools from taxation. They didn't need the 501.c3. After applying for it, they now voluntarily entered into an agreement with the government, who now has control over all 501.c3 churches.
