Where Do We Go From Here?


Before the elections, an echo rang throughout the land.  Well at least through the MSM.  We kept hearing Obama and the left proclaim that the rich need to pay their fair share of the nations taxes, failing to mention that the rich already pay over 70% of the nations taxes.  They also claimed that the rich won’t care if they pay more in taxes.  That’s a load of crap, I said to myself over and over again.  Surely the rich won’t vote for individuals that want to steal their income and redistribute it to a group of bottom feeders.  Boy was I wrong.  Obama actually picked up eight of the ten wealthiest counties in the U.S.

This is absolutely mind-boggling, to say the least.  I can’t wrap my mind around the thought process of these people.  I don’t know if they are just stupid or ignorant.  Maybe the rich had some elaborate plan to get Obama re-elected and then start a mass exodus the near future, taking their money and jobs with them to another country.  Which by the way would leave the rest of us screwed.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see the unemployment rate doubled, $6.00 gas, and a restricted second amendment.

A fortune-teller I am not, but I do know that we are heading for rough waters in the near future.  Luckily you don’t have to be a fortune-teller to be able to know where we are heading.  All you have to do is look back through world history and find out what happened to the civilizations in the days of yore.

Looking back to the Roman Empire, you will find a lot of similarities between the former and current powerful nations.  The Romans, before their fall, became a very perverse society.  Sexual immorality was rampant.  It decayed the foundation of the society like a plague.  Sound familiar?  As we all know, our society is following in the path of the Romans.  Sex is almost used like currency in our society.  People meet in a stranger in some bar and have a one night stand, or they want that promotion so the use sex to get it.  There are also a lot of people who participate in acts like sodomy, bestiality, and many other perverse sex acts.  Sounds like a sexually immoral society to me.

Another reason for the fall of the Roman civilization was that they had the majority of their population on a type of welfare system, the government would give citizens a monthly ration of grain, at a highly discounted price.  Since the government controlled the price of the grain, they could raise or lower the price to affect the favorability of the ruler.  Again, sounds the same.  Looking at today’s society it is very clear that we are heavily vested in our welfare system.  It is an ever-expanding behemoth.  Not only are we giving people free money for nothing, but in the not so distant past FDR gave his “hold-the-line” order where the government froze most prices.  They even jailed people who tried charging any more than these set limits.  Again, sounds like the Roman empire to me.

Let’s not fail to mention that the Romans had a blood lust, where the Christians bore the brunt of their lust for violence.  Now Americans, currently don’t have gladiators who fight to the death, however we do enjoy watching two men beat the crap out of each other for hours at a time.  What America does have, in comparison, is a society the is increasingly anti-Christian, anti-Jew, and/or just plain anti-God.  Atheists say that the nation was not founded on biblical principles and the founding fathers were areligious.  However, all you have to do is look at what the founders said in their own words, not a text-book written two years ago by a bunch of commie educators, and you see that they were in fact Christians.  Even Thomas Jefferson was, comparatively, more Christian than most Christians today.

More than fifty percent of American voters made a statement that was loud and clear on November 6, 2012.  “We would rather have free crap than Freedom.”  This is disheartening.  I no longer recognize the country that I have loved my entire life.  We let politicians that have lied to us, to our faces,  sweet talks us into voting for them again.  We voted, in favor of letting our taxes be raised to new historic levels.

Barack Obama will go down in history as the president who single-handedly destroyed the America that we know and love today.  We have seen his failed and destructive policies being inflicted upon the American people for just about four years now with dire consequences.  We have seen his ineptitude when it comes to handling issues of foreign policy.  It seems the president, in the last few months, started showing his true colors.  He has revealed, in fact, that he is a socialist, and we still want him to be the leader of our country.

In the coming months, conservatives need to regroup and figure out a strategy to start taking back our society.  We need to either change the republican party, or send it the way of the whig party.  We bloggers are the new media and we need to connect, we need to come to come together.  So get on Twitter, get a blog, connect with other like-minded people, and don’t worry, real change will come to the country and we will bring it to fruition.

Jesus Supports 50 – 100% Tax Rate? Really?

According to TIME author Erika Christakis, Jesus would advocate a 50 – 100% tax rate, and because Jesus’ teachings on wealth are “…nowhere to be found in Ryan’s budget proposal,” Christians should not vote for the Romney/Ryan ticket.

In her own words:

Americans often tell pollsters they yearn for a return to the Christian principles on which the U.S. was founded. If so, they should take a closer look at the Mitt Romney–Paul Ryan ticket. Jesus’ teachings regarding wealth are nowhere to be found in Ryan’s budget proposal.

As near as we can tell, Jesus would advocate a tax rate somewhere between 50% (in the vein of “If you have two coats, give one to the man who has none”) and 100% (if you want to get into heaven, be poor).  Mostly, he suggested giving all your money up for the benefit of others. And Jesus made no distinction between the deserving and undeserving poor; his love and generosity applied to all.

Now Jesus did not say because you have two coats give one to the poor man.  He told us that you should love your neighbor as yourself. For example, if you are walking down the street and you see someone less fortunate than you shivering in the cold, because they don’t have a coat, blanket, or warm clothing; you should feel enough love for that person that you should give them your coat, blanket, etc.  Far from this socialistic idea of I have more than you so to make things fair I need to give you one of mine.

As for the “…if you want to get into heaven, be poor…” I have not found anything in the bible that says this.  There was a rich man that came to Jesus and asked how to receive eternal life.  He was told to sell all his possessions and give the proceeds to the poor and to follow Jesus.  He was told this because Jesus knew he loved his wealth more than anything else and he had to get rid of that idol to be able to love his neighbors or even Jesus.  Wealth is not evil. It is often said that “In the bible it says’Money is the root of all evil,” however the correct phrasing is “The love of money is the root of all evil.”
