God and Government: What’s a Christian to do?

We now have a new President, Vice-President, administration, and Congress. Many believe that the election was stolen by corruption and fraud and now have an illegitimate leader. But, the fact remains that the election is over. The results have been certified. And, the oaths administered. Executive orders are flying out of the oval office. In my humble opinion, our Country is on a path to ruin. God has turned His back on the United States of America. 

I have written about how I believe it is impossible to be a Christian and support the Democrat Platform. Our new President is a Democrat and claims to be a Christian; however, he has decided to openly endorse and promote sin in direct opposition to God’s Word in just a matter of days. He has appointed at least one openly homosexual and at least one openly transsexual to prominent positions in his administration. He has signed executive orders to allow taxpayer money to pay for abortions here in the USA and worldwide. He did these things on the same day he attended a church service with the new VP and leaders of Congress. Many other immoral and sinful actions are coming soon. I am reminded of what the prophet Isaiah said, Isaiah 5:20-21 (ESV): “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! [21] Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and shrewd in their own sight!” With the evil now openly flowing through the highest halls of government, what is the Christian to do? 

The Apostle Paul talks about our responsibility to the government in Romans 13. He tells us that those who have been justified by faith are obligated to be subject to human government. Actually, the obligation applies to everyone, but the apostle here is concerned primarily with believers. After the flood in Genesis, God established human government when He decreed, “Whoever sheds man’s blood, by man his blood shall be shed” (Gen. 9:6). That decree gave authority to men to judge criminal matters and to punish offenders. 

I admit that the Bible doesn’t say what I necessarily want it to say on this matter. I am not happy with the current situation in which we find ourselves. However, who am I to argue with God? Or, for that matter, who are you to argue with God? As Christians, we are to grow more Christlike, which means to be submissive to The Word of God, period. It makes no difference whether we agree with it, like it, or not. The Word is the final authority. The fact that Christians are citizens of Heaven (Phil. 3:20) does not exempt them from responsibility to human government.

In every ordered society, there must be authority and submission to that authority. Otherwise, you have a state of anarchy, and you cannot survive indefinitely under anarchy. Any government is better than no government. So God has instituted human government, and no government exists apart from His Will. This does not mean that He approves of all that human rulers do. He certainly disapproves of corruption, homosexuality, murder, and tyranny. But the fact remains that God appoints the authorities that exist. 

Believers can live victoriously in a democracy, a constitutional monarchy, or even a totalitarian regime. No earthly government is any better than the men who comprise it. That is why none of our governments is perfect. The only ideal government is a beneficent monarchy with the Lord Jesus Christ as King. It is helpful to remember that Paul wrote this section on subjection to human government when the infamous Nero was Emperor. Those were dark days for Christians. Nero blamed them for a fire that destroyed half the city of Rome (and which he himself may have ordered). He caused some believers to be immersed in tar, then ignited as living torches to provide illumination for his orgies. Others were sewn up in animal skins, then thrown to ferocious dogs to be torn to pieces. 

And yet, it still holds that anyone who disobeys or rebels against the government is disobeying and rebelling against what God has ordained. Whoever resists lawful authority earns and deserves punishment.

There is an exception, of course. A Christian is not required to obey if the government orders him to sin or compromise his loyalty to Jesus Christ (Acts 5:29). No government has a right to command a person’s conscience. So there are times when a believer must, by obeying God, incur the wrath of man. In such cases, he must be prepared to pay the penalty without undue complaint. Under no circumstances should he rebel against the government or join in an attempt to overthrow it. We must find a way of maintaining our duty to God as well as being a good citizen. We have examples from David and Daniel. Regardless of what happens to us, as long as we are faithful to God, He will always be with us as He was in the Book of Daniel. Who can forget the fourth man in the furnace or who caused the lions to sleep?

Whether president, governor, mayor, or judge, the ruler is a minister of God in the sense that he is a servant and representative of the Lord. He may not know God personally, but he is still the Lord’s man officially. Thus David repeatedly referred to the wicked King Saul as the Lord’s anointed (1 Sam. 24:6, 10; 26:9, 11, 16, 23). Despite Saul’s repeated attempts on David’s life, the latter would not allow his men to harm the king. Why? Because Saul was the king, and as such, he was the Lord’s appointee.

As servants of God, rulers are expected to promote the good of the people: security, tranquility, and general welfare. If any man insists on breaking the law, he can expect to pay for it because the government has the authority to bring him to trial and punish him. In the expression he does not bear the sword in vain, we have a strong statement concerning the power which God vests in the government. The sword is not just an innocuous symbol of power; a scepter would have served that purpose. The sword seems to speak of the ultimate power of the ruler-that is, to inflict capital punishment. So it will not do to say that capital punishment was for the OT era only and not for the New. Here is a statement in the NT that implies that the government has the authority to take a capital offender’s life. People argue against this by quoting Exodus 20:13 in the KJV: “Thou shalt not kill.” But that commandment refers to murder, and capital punishment is not murder. The Hebrew word translated “kill” in the KJV means explicitly “murder” and is so translated in the NKJV: “You shall not murder.” Capital punishment was prescribed in the OT law as the required punishment for certain serious offenses. 

Again the apostle reminds us that the ruler is God’s minister, but this time he adds, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. In other words, in addition to being a minister of God to us for good, he also serves God by dispensing punishment to those who break the law. This means that we should be obedient subjects of the government for two reasons: the fear of punishment and the desire to maintain a good conscience. 

Christians must demonstrate a respectful fear of displeasing those who are charged with enforcing the laws. And they must show honor for the names and offices of all civil servants (even if they can’t always respect their personal lives). In this connection, Christians should never join in speaking in a derogatory way of the President. It is written, “You shall not speak evil of a ruler of your people” (Acts 23:5). 

I must admit that I am the chiefest of sinners when it comes to this issue. I have not always followed the Word when it comes to how I behave towards the government. I must repent of my sins and do better.

Rampant Paranoia Within the (National Socialist) Democrat Politburo

As of the Monday prior to the Inauguration, if what is happening is a vision of things to come under the (National Socialist) Democrat Politburo and their leader, Sleepy Joe Biden, aka the illegitimate President of the United States. (I can hear the hypocritical howls now!)  Let’s start with the level of paranoia running rampant […]

Means of Grace

– Brad Anderson

In times of unrest and frenzy, we all tend to forget our grounding. Just yesterday I received a phone call at the church that our power bill was two months past due and our power was about to be turned off. Thankfully, not having any authority to pay the power bill and not being that reactionary of a person, I stepped back and consulted all the wisdom (people and resources) at my disposal in order not to pay the bill immediately over the phone. I called our treasurer and our treasurer called the power company. Easy enough.

It was a scam. I’m glad I consulted the right people and resources. In a few short minutes the truth was known and we could move on with our day.

Those who trust in Jesus need to use the same non-panic inducing wisdom for daily, faithful living, and our God has given us his trustworthy, clear channels by which he pours his grace and favor: the means of grace. Charles Hodge defines the means of grace as “those institutions which God has ordained to be the ordinary channels of grace, i.e., of the supernaturalinfluences of the Holy Spirit, to the souls of men.” Supernatural influence of the Holy Spirit on your very soul? Yes, that can happen.

While inward means are the work of the Holy Spirit in one’s life for salvation (repentance and faith), the outward and ordinarymeans (WSC 88, WLC 154) “are all his ordinances; especially the word, sacraments, and prayer; all which are made effectual to the elect for their salvation.” Scripturally, these means are communicated in the Great Commission in (Matthew 28:18-20) and traced back to the beginning of the church (Acts 2:42). 

These means are ordinary because they are the standard (ordinary does not mean boring!), God-appointed channels. These means are not given for the sake of novelty or occasional devotion, rather their intent is to be engaged on a regular basis to grow in true Grace—Christ himself. God is intentional in the ways he chooses to communicate to his people and save the lost. As Vos says, “Of course God could have made a plan to save sinners without the use of outward means of grace; but he has not chosen to do so, and so we must avail ourselves of the means which God has provided.” We are not to wait for a special feeling or prompting, rather we are to give ourselves eagerly and regularly. 

Ray Ortlund sums it up quite well: 

How do I, as a believer, access the grace of the Lord for my many needs? Where do I go, what do I do, to connect with the real help He gives to sinners and sufferers here in this world? I know I am saved by His grace alone. But Jesus said, ‘Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light’ (Matt. 11:28-30).

Our gracious Lord is not playing ‘catch me if you can’ with us. He wants us to be sure of Him, come to him, and draw strength from Him so that we can live fully for Him. But He does not give Himself to us in any way we might devise. He has made Himself knowable and accessible in specific ways of His own wise choosing. His appointed avenues of blessing are the means of grace.

How many means of grace are there? Louis Berkhof limits his list of the means to those observances that would be administered by ordained clergy: the preached word and the sacraments. Wayne Grudem has an expansive list of eleven. He adds to the original four: worship, church discipline, giving, Spiritual gifts, fellowship, evangelism and personal ministry to individuals.  What Berkhof limits to those things administered by ordained clergy, Grudem prefers a significantly “everything under the sun” approach. Berkhof’s position is highly clerical—his list of means can only be executed by clergy. Charles Hodge saw the need to include prayer to the means of grace because it is intended to draw one close to God and makes one’s soul “holy and blessed.” 

One is in good company by sticking close to the catechisms with the word, sacraments, and prayer as the means of grace. Personally, I’m for expanding the list a little bit to include fellowship, discipleship, and worship. 

No matter your list, there is nothing spiritually healthy by ignoring the means of grace. By not sitting under the Word preached or reading Scripture (2 Tim. 3:16), one cannot expect to hear from the Lord and know his desires. By not praying (1 Thess. 5:16-18) one cannot expect to know God’s presence. By not participating in the Lord’s Supper (1 Cor. 10:16), one cannot participate in the blood of Christ proclaiming his death until he comes again. By not being baptized one does not receive the initiatory sign and seal of belonging to the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:13). By being regularly absent from the assembly of God’s people (Heb. 10:25) one cannot expect the blessing of fellowship and worship. The inverse to all of these makes for a stronger connection with God and his people!

In the end, God’s blessing is not typically found in the strange and unusual. He gives us outward and ordinary ways to know and grow in him. In the best, worst, and frenzied of times, his means are there. May we go to them often.

The Real State of the Union, 2021

Within the next few weeks, the President of the USA will give Congress a State of the Union. No doubt, he will not tell the truth. So, I thought I would give you the real state of the union. 

The United States is in turmoil. The people are divided. A new president-elect and vice-president-elect, who most certainly did not win the election fairly, have been certified. Progressive liberals have taken control of the Country and are actively doing everything they can to suppress the opposition. Corruption runs rampant throughout Congress as well as state legislatures. Activist Judges across the Country openly refuse to judge fair and impartial and legislate from the bench instead. The Supreme Court refuses to do its job. Groups like BLM and Antifa are called peaceful despite rioting, looting, terrorizing, and killing for months on end. Violent crime rates are increasing everywhere. The LGBTQ lifestyle is accepted as normal, and those that oppose it are marginalized. More than 61,500,000 babies have been murdered by abortion since 1973. The education system has been dumbed down exponentially. The greatest economy in history has been destroyed. We are more than $27,000,000,000,000,000 in debt and continue to increase the deficit without any regard for the consequences. We have not been debt-free since 1835 under President Andrew Jackson. The federal government has operated with a budget only twice in the last 15 years (2007, 2015). Whew! That’s a lot of stuff, and I’ve only scratched the surface. 

How did we get here? It didn’t happen overnight. It started more than 100 years ago with the progressive agenda. Those that adopted it knew it would take a long time to attain, so that’s how they planned. We have gotten here a little at a time. They have killed the Republic “with a thousand paper cuts.” Now that they have achieved victory, there is nothing to stop the rest of their agenda. Despite what the progressive liberals say, The United States of America was founded on Christian-Judeo principles. The Holy Bible, God’s inerrant, infallible Word, has the answer on how we got here. 

We are following in the path of former empires that destroyed themselves from the inside out. The Book of Romans gives us a picture of what started the downfall of that empire as well as what is happening to us. 

The Bible tells us in Romans 1:18-25 (ESV), “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. [19] For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. [20] For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. [21] For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. [22] Claiming to be wise, they became fools…[25] Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, [25] because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.”  

We have arrogantly substituted the truth about God with a lie. People have stifled the truth God naturally reveals to everyone in order to support their own self-centered way of living. This is sin, and God cannot tolerate sin because of His holy, perfect nature. He has designed the best way for people to live in harmony with him and with each other. He cannot ignore or condone willful rebellion. God’s justified anger has turned on the USA, which persists in going its own way. 

The Bible goes on the explain precisely what has happened to our Country. Romans 1:26-32 (ESV), “For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; [27] and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. [28] And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. [29] They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, [30] slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, [31] foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. [32] Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

Who is to blame for this mess? We are. The Christians that make up the church. We sit comfortably in our padded pews and chairs while we listen to some sterilized sermonette nodding our heads and raising our hands in agreement. Then we leave and do nothing. We don’t bother to read the Bible for ourselves to see if we are being told the truth or not. We sit idly by while we allow politicians to lie and steal without any consequences (see my previous post). We sit idly by while our education system is dumbed down and history is rewritten. We don’t stand up to evil. Instead of calling on the name of Jesus to save us and guide us, we do nothing. 

We look down our noses at the heathen, considering ourselves more civilized, educated, and refined. We condemn others for their gross behavior, yet we are equally guilty, though perhaps in a more sophisticated way. We can see faults in others more readily than in ourselves. Things hideous and repulsive in the lives of others seem quite respectable in our own. But the fact that we can judge sins in others shows that we know the difference between right and wrong. If we know that it is wrong for someone to steal our property, then we know it is wrong for us to steal someone else’s property. The sins of church people are essentially the same as those of the heathen. Although a moralist may argue that he has not committed every sin in the book, we should remember the following facts:

  1. We are capable of committing them all.
  2. By breaking one commandment, we are guilty of all (James 2:10).
  3. We have committed sins of thought which we may never have committed in actual deed, and the Word forbids these. Jesus taught that the lustful look, for instance, is tantamount to adultery (Matthew 5:28).

So then, what is the Christian to do? We must live our lives according to the Bible’s teaching. If we did that, we would have the impact needed to save our Country and bring it back into submission under God. The Bible says, Colossians 3:1-25 (ESV), “If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. [2] Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. [3] For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. [4] When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. [5] Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. [6] On account of these the wrath of God is coming. [7] In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. [8] But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. [9] Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices [10] and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. [11] Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all. [12] Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, [13] bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. [14] And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. [15] And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. [16] Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. [17] And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. [18] Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. [19] Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them. [20] Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. [21] Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged. [22] Bondservants, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord. [23] Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, [24] knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. [25] For the wrongdoer will be paid back for the wrong he has done, and there is no partiality.”

Dear Brothers and Sisters, we are the light in a darkened world. We are ambassadors for Jesus Christ to this world. It’s time we stood up for Him. Perhaps if we all did that, the next state of the union might be different.

Attempted Coup…NOT!

By the time you read this, you most definitely know about the incident in Washington DC on Wednesday, January 6th. You also have undoubtedly heard ad nauseam all the MSM and many politicians spouting their ridiculous views about what happened. Senator Chuck Schumer called it, “like the attack on Pearl Harbor, this is a day that will live in infamy.” Others have called it an attempted coup. It was neither of these. It was simply people fed up with the corruption and hypocrisy of Congress erupting much like a teapot that has started whistling. 

Let’s take a stroll down memory lane and see what brought this to a boil. 

  • Vice-President Joe Biden admitted to withholding money from Ukraine unless the prosecutor who was looking into corruption involving his son, Hunter Biden, was fired. Nobody has ever been held accountable. 
  • In the summer of 2016, President Obama and his administration illegally spied on the then-candidate Trump and his campaign. Nobody has ever been held accountable. 
  • In November 2016, a coup against President-Elect Trump was started by President Barak Obama, Vice-President Joe Biden, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, and leaders of the FBI and CIA, among others. Nobody has ever been held accountable. 
  • President Trump was falsely accused of collaborating with Russia in winning the election and had to endure four years of blatant lies from the media and politicians. Nobody has ever been held accountable. 
  • Hillary Clinton was caught violating laws pertaining to thousands and thousands of emails kept on a personal computer and then destroying the evidence. She has not been held accountable. 
  • The Clinton Foundation was found illegally selling uranium to Russia. Nobody has ever been held accountable. 
  • Hillary Clinton paid for a dossier of lies in order to bring down the Trump administration. Nobody has ever been held accountable. 
  • Representative Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, and others conducted a corrupt and illegal impeachment against President Trump based on known lies. Nobody has ever been held accountable. 
  • Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioted and looted for more than 100 days in 2020. They burned down businesses, churches, government buildings, and homes. They barricaded a police precinct with officers and civilians inside and attempted to murder them by attempting to burn the building down. They laid siege to a federal building and attempted to murder the officers protecting it, seriously injuring several officers. They took control of parts of cities, terrorizing residents. They did many more illegal things. Nobody has ever been held accountable.  
  • Democrat leaders have used the Wuhan Flu to destroy the economy and ruin lives. Nobody has ever been held accountable. 
  • Democrat politicians created the most corrupt and illegal presidential election in history. States violated their own constitutions. Fraudulent votes were used to defeat President Trump. Courts refused even to hear the evidence. Nobody has ever been held accountable. 
  • President Trump received 75,000,000 votes that included more votes from every minority group since 1960, and we are supposed to believe that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris received more than 85,000,000 votes and won the election.   
  • The United States has sent observers all over the world to help prevent corrupt elections. The corruption in our 2020 election would never have been allowed anywhere else, but Congress certified it.

These are just a few of the things that have happened in the last four years that have frustrated and made many people angry. There were no fires and no looting to put what happened in Washington on January 6th in perspective with the past six months. There were a few broken windows at the capitol building, and a few people got inside and walked around and sat in some offices. I am not aware of any vandalism inside the building. Police killed one veteran, and three others died of medical emergencies. That is tragic. 

Now the politicians want to impeach President Trump while he has less than two weeks left in his term. They want to blame him for the incident when, in fact, they are the ones that are responsible. They want to make sure that he can never run for office again. Everything that has happened is about having control without being held accountable for anything the ruling class chooses to do. 

I believe that God has turned His back on the United States of America just like he did to Israel many times in the Old Testament. Because of the church’s disobedience, corruption, and cowardice, He has left us to our own devices. But I have addressed this topic before and certainly will again. May we turn back to God, and may He have mercy on us.

A What?

The progressive liberals have lost their minds. If by chance you have not heard the opening prayer of the 117 Congress by Methodist Reverend (I kid you not) Emanuel Cleaver then you must see and hear it to believe it. Not only does he pray to others gods (blasphemy), but he makes a mockery of the Latin word “amen” that is generally used to end prayer. “Amen” is translated as “so be it” and has nothing to do with gender at all.

For this man to call himself a reverend in a mainline Christian denomination is a farce. Of course, it is just another example of how the once great United Methodist Church has fallen into apostasy. It is a sad state of the church when the leaders bow to Satan and openly mock God.

New Year’s Resolutions

The practice of making New Year’s resolutions goes back over 3,000 years to the ancient Babylonians. There is just something about the start of a new year that gives us the feeling of a fresh start and a new beginning. In reality, there is no difference between December 31 and January 1. Nothing mystical occurs at midnight on December 31. The Bible does not speak for or against the concept of New Year’s resolutions. However, if a Christian determines to make a New Year’s resolution, what kind of resolution should he or she make?

The most common resolutions include losing weight, working out, and eating healthy. Others want to stop smoking or drinking and to manage money better. Some people want to do all these things. Many Christians make New Year’s resolutions to pray more, read the Bible every day, and attend church more regularly.

By the time February is here, the vast majority of these resolutions will be long forgotten. We will be back doing the same things we were doing last year. Perhaps the problem is with our motivation for the resolutions, to begin with. Why do we want to lose weight, work out, read the Bible, etc.? Do we want to do these things in hopes of improving ourselves for selfish reasons (vanity) or to bring honor and glory to God?

Philippians 4:13 tells us, “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.” John 15:5 declares, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” If God is the center of your New Year’s resolution, it has a chance for success, depending on your commitment to it. If it is God’s Will for something to be fulfilled, He will enable you to fulfill it. If a resolution is not God-honoring and/or is not in agreement with God’s Word, we will not receive God’s help in fulfilling the resolution.

Therefore, what should a Christian do about making New Year’s Resolutions? Here are some suggestions: (1) pray to the Lord for wisdom (James 1:5) regarding what resolutions, if any, He would have you make; (2) pray for wisdom as to how to fulfill the goals God gives you; (3) rely on God’s strength to help you; (4) find an accountability partner who will help you and encourage you; (5) don’t become discouraged with occasional failures; instead, allow them to motivate you further; (6) don’t become proud or vain, but give God the glory. Psalm 37:5-6 says, “Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.” And, always remember Romans 8:28, “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”

Where’s the Outrage?

Common Sense Corner

Where is the outrage over this incredibly obvious financial fraud being perpetrated on the American people? Why are there no protesters outside the local office of every Representative and Senator who signed on to this extortion of American taxpayers?

We are supposed to be overwhelmingly grateful, we are supposed to be genuflecting to these self-styled Lords and Ladies who see themselves as our saviors, we are supposed to be singing hosanna on the highest to these clowns, these crooks, these parasites, and their various sycophants and minions, all of whom have never missed a very generous paycheck during this crisis, something that can’t be said for those of us that are forced at gunpoint, at the threat of imprisonment, to give up OUR money to pay those salaries! We are supposed to be all that and more over a $600 check while they spend billions…billions on CRAP that has no…

Common Sense Corner

In spite of my background, I am not a violent person. I am not one to casually advocate resolving anything through physical destructive action, though I have been known to make comments jokingly.

But I am also not one to simply stand by and allow blatantly obvious injustices occur. I am not one to stand by and watch the results of 244 years of blood, sweat, and treasure willingly and voluntarily committed by so many people to an idea of a free and independent nation be thrown on the trash heap of history by a handful of ignorant, lazy, brain dead parasites being manipulated by power hungry puppet masters. What I am is a RABID PATRIOT that cannot sit by and watch this continue.

I do think about how this all will affect me, but I think more about how it will affect my children and my grandchildren and (hopefully)…

How Deep The Rot

Common Sense Corner

So let me see if I have this straight…the (National Socialist) Democrat Party spent millions of taxpayer dollars and wasted valuable legislation time, not to mention creating deeper divisions among the American people, claiming President Trump was tied to the Russian government yet not being able to produce one iota of physical proof of anything. But when documented proof of involvement with a known Chinese spy by a member of THEIR party is brought to light they claim there’s no there there. And then, when he IS placed in a highly sensitive position where he could potentially subvert the safety and security of the United States (how that happened is still an unexplained mystery) and it’s found out that even after he was warned about the fact that this was a Chinese espionage agent, he has been and still was in contact with this spy. And only after that is…
