The Return of the Christian Conservative

Today I spent over 2 hours on the telephone with the IRS.  I was amazed at how disorganized this agency still is.  You would think that after all these years someone would know something about their jobs at the IRS.  I had only one question, “How do I file my taxes for an organization that is both Christian and political?”  Now I had no idea I was putting forth to those at the IRS, the most difficult question of the past 50 years.  It was as if I spoke words that discombobulated their whole system of thinking and caused the IRS to experience a meltdown of some sort.  I was transferred back in forth about 6 times.  If you think I caused a meltdown of the system by putting forth that question.  I then told them that my non profit organization would be non-tax exempt.  Man do I need to get out into the world of government more.  Making this statement really caused the wiring in the thinking of those at the IRS to go completely haywire.  It was as if I entered a foreign land and asked a question in a language no one understood. 

One thing I learned by my two hour and 15 minute conversation with the on-hold music, was that there is no such thing as an organization that is both Christian and Political.  If anyone wishes to receive tax exempt status they must adhere to the government’s new standard of separation of church and state.  Either you are a Christian organization or you are a political organization.  But you can not put Christianity and politics together.  Well that is until God through me into this movement to save our country.  Today, Conservative Moms for America established one of a rare few if not, the first Christian Political organization of our anti-God era.  The reason why there is so few or no such organizations that exist today is because the government has used their "golden entitlement bait" to cause organizations to become dependent on their handouts.  This has also eliminated the influential impacts of the once power movement formerly known as the "Christian Conservative".  I am amazed at how dependent Americans have become of our government.  I would rather pay taxes on my donations than to allow the government to control me through tax exempt entitlements. 

Conservative Moms for America can now accept donations.  However, those donations will not be able to be used as charitable deductions for tax purposes by those who give.  And I will gladly pay taxes on those donations if it allows me the freedom to bring back to this country a voice and a place for the Christian Conservative.  There was a time in our country when the Christian Conservative was a viable watchdog in maintaining morality and accountability within the culture of American life.  However, progressives conjured up an entitlement that would soon quiet them just as they have, minorities, corporate America, the financial market, the housing industry and everyone else that salivates at the site of a government handout. 

There is a manner in which we can still enjoy the freedom our founding fathers fought for us to enjoy as Americans.  It does come at a cost, and is every bit worth that cost.   As I look at this metaphorically, I see so many who have voluntarily bowed down and allowed the voice of the Christian Conservative to be sealed by the millions of dollars that have been received through tax-exempt entitlements.  Are our Christian principles worth more than a tax exempt?   I have heard so many times Christians scoff at those who live off government entitlements, but are they not doing the same thing?  If the thought of not getting to write a donation off, causes grief to a tax payer, isn’t that a handout as well? Today, the voice of the Christian Conservative has returned.  Conservative Moms for will be a place where Christians can speak boldly about their faith, express their views about government and politics and endorse the candidates they believe can represent their values all at the same time.  And I hope that our members will do so with great honor and pride for our God who deserves it and our country that can not survive without Him.  

Saying that the last two months of getting pushed into this battle to take our country back has been an "eye-opener", would truly be an understatement, it has been more like being awakened from a nightmare, that well, is not a nightmare.  We are excited about the New Year and all the great things that await us as we champion the cause for freedom.  This will be my final blog of the year and I am happy to write this with excitement as the New Year roles in.  I believe that in 2010, America will witness the return of the Christian Conservative and that this return will bring about great opportunities for the futures of our children.   I am so thankful for all of the wonderful friends I have met during my first year of blogging and I pray that all of you enjoy a great Christmas with your loved ones and family and that the New Year will bring you a renewed love for God, your family and your country.  May you all be blessed!  Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Years.

America is no longer a God Fearing Nation

President Obama’s remarks last summer that America is not a Christian nation, brought outrage to many Americans.  I too could not believe he would appear on a worldwide platform and say something like this about the country that has afforded him such a place in our country’s history.  However, if President Obama would have said instead, that “America is no longer a God-fearing nation, I would have had to agree with him.  As I step back from the drama of the day and really look at how we behave as Americans I would have to say that there is an aspect of our character that was once present in America and has been lost.  In the last 50 years, America has gone through a very dramatic transition from being a nation whose God was the LORD, and who lived in the knowledge that God was a powerful and righteous overseer over their lives, to citizens who now believe they can live in any manner they desire. 

This is why we are now witnessing the worst corruption in our government that has ever been witnessed by any other generation.  The policies of Franklin Roosevelt actually signaled a parting of ways from God and to the Constitution of the United States.  Our founding fathers were adamant about the government staying in its place and not becoming a power within itself, being respectfully in submission to the Creator.  However, Franklin Roosevelt began the expansion of government and it has been expanding ever since; undermining our Constitution at each stroke of the pen in the creation of expansion policies. Many decisions that would come afterward further signaled that we were heading in a wrong direction.

I have thought for a long time that the removal of prayer from school was the start of this departure from being a nation of God-fearing people, but the process began many years before.  Still having this decision come to past showed that the leaders of our nation had become arrogant and desired to rule themselves rather than remain God-fearing men who would seek God’s direction.  There was a time in our country’s history when Americans showed their dissatisfaction with policies by rising up in revolt.  However, something about America was gone and it would lead us into the place we are witnessing today.  Our judicial system was already taken over by men who desired their rule and not that of our God or the Constitution He inspired.  What was not obvious was that the citizens of America had also abandoned the principles of our founding fathers. The legalization of abortion should have been the great red flag that would signal the end of America as was once known.  I can not even imagine the heart break God experienced as He watched America begin such a vicious attack against innocent life.  The cries of the many precious little souls that have been murdered goes all the way up to heaven.

Only a rebellious and defiant people could create such a horror in the presence of an Almighty God and have no remorse.  No one stood up in defense of this tragedy, not the church, not other parents, not anyone.  Surely if the fear of God existed even then Americans would have taken to the streets in protest, but instead everyone kept on with life as usual.  Then came the sexual revolution more evidence that the fear of God was absent from the center of American life.  The liberal Left who were the culprits of these acts of rebellion continued behind the scenes taking advantage of the new American attitude that no longer feared God. 

Next was the coming out of homosexuals, where men and women paraded their sexual defiance in the face of God.  Not feeling that God had been radically moved at this point, the radicals begin to change what Americans believed, by creating the concept of political correctness.  Political correctness replaced Americans dependence on God’s Word to instruct and lead their lives.  Everything about this concept is an attack against Biblical teachings.  It impacted how we thought, what we thought was right and wrong and how we viewed others.  It is what caused our public school system to become an institute of indoctrination and anti-God teaching.  It is what brought about the post modern thinking of moral relativism and the corruption and immorality that has destroyed our ability to be God-fearing people. 

So how do we become God fearing people again?  By believing that God is the absolute authority over our lives and by replacing the garbage and polluted thinking of political correctness with the Biblical teachings found in the Word of God and returning to live under God’s rule,  we can experience America again.  Without returning to dependence on God and abiding in His Word we will not ever experience the America our founding fathers established.  Without re-educating ourselves in regards to our founding documents and electing leaders who understand these documents as well, we will not experience the America our founding fathers established.  As I have been pushed into the center of the battle for America, I see a spiritual problem that continues to be neglected and over looked.  So many new groups are focusing on the politics as the center of our issues, but it is not the central problem. 

The work which I believe God called me into and I have began through the Conservative Moms for America group will continue to battle the spiritual issues that have derailed our nation.  Fearing God means that we respect His authority over life and His right to reign over us.  It also means that we fear the consequence of His discipline and power to chastise us.  We understand that there is a final judgment that has an eternal effect over our lives and we fear the consequences of His judgment.  America has become a nation that no longer fears God and it is evident in many ways within American life.  Remember Psalms 14:1, “The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.”  They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none who does good.”

Life Goes On

Good morning to all in the blogsphere. 

I am sure some of you have heard by now of the recent turmoil on our newly created Conservative Moms for America.  I am thankful that God sees all things and will give His account of life from His prospective in the end.  I must say though that God is moving me forward and I wish all who have left us well. I have been around long enough to know that when things like this happens people will leave and emotions will flare.  But God has kept me contained in all of this.  I have and always will admire the many wonderful women that God provided for me to start my work in this fight to take back our country for God.  But I must say, I have an incredible peace that most would not expect in a time like this.

Even after parting ways with close trusted friends, my heart feels no hard feelings.  Today I just feel like it's another day to work in the things of the LORD.  There are always those who will take sides and have issue, but I know that there is a God that is high and lifted up who knows exactly my hearts intent and motives and He will deal with what He finds according to what He finds, not what people perceives or even what I perceive.  From this experience, I just wanted to encourage all of you that are working in this fight to keep fighting.  Attacks will come, misunderstandings will happen, and people will draw their own conclusions, but each man will be held accountable for their own actions.  So keep fighting for our freedoms and liberties and for our country to come back to that place where God sits as our Sovereign leader.

I am thankful that God gives us grace to learn and grow in this life, but we can not leave our experiences even when they are not the most favorable, being changed in a negative manner.  In all of life's seasons, there is a place to grow and learn.  But we don't become bitter or apathetic because that only prevents God from showing us His way.  The Scriptures tell us that each day we must deny ourselves, pick up our cross and follow Him.  He has already provided victory, but we must show that our faith is one that can endure for us in this life.  God has already prepared me for dealing with painful experiences so I can look to Him and say, okay God what should I take from this one.  God is just amazing, He really is.  He wants to mold and grow us and show us how to follow His will.  As long as we believe that life goes on, and that will be faithful to guide us through this journey He created for us, God will take us to incredible places.

I am sure based on the opinions of others involved, many will form their opinions, but they have a right to.  This is what we get to enjoy as Americans, our freedom to draw our own conclusions and opinions.  So today I just wanted to encourage you to know that God is aware of every detail of our lives.  There is nothing hidden from Him.  Circumstances arise but it is not the circumstance that makes or breaks us but the way we handle or react to them.  For me, God has more and I sense more,  so life goes on as I seek to do the will of my Father.  If you are in the midst of a hard circumstance, don't allow that circumstance to cloud your judgment.  I leave you with Proverbs 1:1-7,

The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:
       2 To know wisdom and instruction,
      To perceive the words of understanding,
       3 To receive the instruction of wisdom,
      Justice, judgment, and equity;
       4 To give prudence to the simple,
      To the young man knowledge and discretion—
       5 A wise man will hear and increase learning,
      And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel,
       6 To understand a proverb and an enigma,
      The words of the wise and their riddles.
       7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge,
      But fools despise wisdom and instruction.

God is Pro-Life

Today I am scratching my head wondering, “How did Roe vs Wade pass? In our Online Bible Study in Genesis, God specifically tells us how He feels about life. There is no “wondering what He really meant by that” approach one can take from what He has put in place regarding life. This is not the first verse where God specifically tells us how He feels about life. But this is what Genesis 9:6 says, “Only you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, (C)its blood.

5"Surely I will require (D)your lifeblood; (E)from every beast I will require it. And from every man, from every man's brother I will require the life of man. 6"(F)Whoever sheds man's blood, by man his blood shall be shed, for (G)in the image of God He made man. 7"As for you, (H)be fruitful and multiply; Populate the earth abundantly and multiply in it."

This seems more like the serpent saying “Did God really say?” We have had it wrong, and we have been asking the wrong question for the last 50 years, is what I take from these Scriptures. Instead of debating, “when does life begin?” The question should be, “Is there blood flowing through them?” This debate would be over and everyone would stop hiding behind their rebellious desire to act in disobedience against God. To my fellow women I would say this, “You have no right to chose.” Once God has placed blood in the veins that person has life and therefore has been ordained by God to life, not a women’s desire to birth that life.

This morning I see America’s plight like I have never seen it with my understanding before. This is what the consequences are for those who would take away the life of another:

Surely I will require (D)your lifeblood; (E)from every beast I will require it. And from every man, from every man's brother I will require the life of man.

Now if God would require this of man, what do you think He will require of a nation, who runs to embraces the governments sanction on rebellion. Our nation must repent, but more than that our churches must repent, because there was no church uprising against this atrocity and in fact many church leaders will tell you that we can not judge. This has nothing to do with judging. God has commanded and we are responsible to obey. Before I became a Christian, I had two abortions. During those times I was a staunch liberal who believed that I had a right to my own choices. Only the grace of God that provided me wisdom so that the eyes of my understanding would be enlightened changed my stance against this horrible act of rebellion.

Only those who can submit themselves to God’s Sovereignty can accept that abortion is always wrong. God’s sovereignty means that God sees every circumstance. He sees a woman being raped. He sees a woman in an act of sexual immorality. Yes, God in His Sovereignty must look upon man every day, in his state of lust, unbelief and out right profane behaviors, rebellion and totally rejection of what He has commanded. God has had to witness this every mili-second of each day since the day, man fell from grace. But in this country He must sit on His throne and see innocent children being put to death, for NOTHING. Now do you really believe God would have anything to do with America, just on that act alone? Psalms 127:1-2 says, Behold, (A)children are a gift of the LORD, the (B)fruit of the womb is a reward. 4Like arrows in the hand of a (C)warrior, so are the children of one's youth.

The belief that “children are a gift from God”, is not a catchy Hallmark greeting, it is Truth. Every time one conceives a child God is giving that person a gift. Yet many, even our current administration would feel that they would not want anyone to be “punished”, by having a child. So who is right God or President Obama? Is a child a gift, or punishment? If this blog post has tone of anger it is because I am angry. I am angry that we have allowed the government to regulate rebellion. Conservative Moms for America hopes to rebuild the America God gave to our founding fathers by challenging every person to evaluate they way they are living. America’s number one problem is immorality. Because our country was based on the providence of God immorality can not reside with a Holy God. God has been showing us in many ways that He has had enough and now we are seeing it first hand.

In Genesis God also showed that He has much pity for us, because He knows that we are no match for the heart and the corruption that it can create. We are often reminded of Numbers 12:6, which is the call to repentance, but we must also remember that God calls the leadership to repentance as well. In 2 Chronicles 12:1-7, the Israelites are about to be attacked by Shishak the King of Egypt, because their leader rejected the commands of the LORD.

Now it came to pass, when Rehoboam had established the kingdom and had strengthened himself, that he forsook the law of the LORD, and all Israel along with him. 2 And it happened in the fifth year of King Rehoboam that Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem, because they had transgressed against the LORD, 3 with twelve hundred chariots, sixty thousand horsemen, and people without number who came with him out of Egypt—the Lubim and the Sukkiim and the Ethiopians. 4 And he took the fortified cities of Judah and came to Jerusalem.

5 Then Shemaiah the prophet came to Rehoboam and the leaders of Judah, who were gathered together in Jerusalem because of Shishak, and said to them, “Thus says the LORD: ‘You have forsaken Me, and therefore I also have left you in the hand of Shishak.’” 6 So the leaders of Israel and the king humbled themselves; and they said, “The LORD is righteous.” 7 Now when the LORD saw that they humbled themselves, the word of the LORD came to Shemaiah, saying, “They have humbled themselves; therefore I will not destroy them, but I will grant them some deliverance. My wrath shall not be poured out on Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak.

America needs to return to the practice of electing principled and God-fearing leaders. It is obvious in every part of American life that our leaders have stopped fearing God. God is Pro-life and He will require at His judgment the life of all those who in rebellion destroyed innocent life. Think about it.

Brainwashed! Christianity 059

I was awaken with lots of ammo this morning to fight the day’s battle. As I slept the Spirit of God was bringing forth incredible revelation and wisdom. I awaken to the words for this blog. My friend Karen Harden has a must read blog post today. In processing all that God has placed on my heart today, one of the defining terms I received was, "stealth attack". Karen and I had no collaborations on what we have written, but the messages are quiet clear. In all of our preparing for battle, charging to turn this country around, ridding our government of corrupt politicians, we must be aware that the enemy sits and watches to see whom it is he may devour.

I was having a couple of bumpy days, and I know there will be more, but God will always use our adversities to mold and shape us. One of the things I have realized from the events of the past two days is that the liberal left has been very effective in launching a stealth plan to brainwash the citizens of America. They have been successful in moving God out of America by changing the attitudes of American concerning things that relate to Christians. Many people have been brainwashed and don't even realize it. That is a scary thing.

When someone can deceptively take over ones mind without them having any fight against the individual, that individual holds a very frightening and dangerous ability. One of the areas where the left has been the most effective is in silencing the voice of Christians. It is like they have individually hog-tied the mouth of Christians without even touching them. That is amazing. I have been amazed at how Christians think about themselves as a result of the raping of their identity by the left. It is as if this hypnotic trance happens once the Christian engages outside of their boundaries. Psalms 24: 8 says, "Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle." Now for the most part during Sunday sermon, or within the confinement of the home, most Christians can shout that boldly. However, place those same Christians in the room with a room full of fierce opponents of the faith, and they would most probably stand shivering.

What happened to "Who is the King of Glory?” The majority of Christians have been conditioned to fear those with no authority over them. Jesus said this in Matthew 28:18-20, "And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Who has all authority? Jesus does. Yet Christians will crumble before any opposition of their faith. It is as if they need a remedial course in Christianity to teach them to stand on the faith they profess. It was said that this site is too Christian, it could be offensive and seem exclusive to those who do not believe. Wait! Excuse me; there is nothing offensive on this site. What is offensive? Are their signs anywhere condemning and judging the faith of others, No? Does it say that only Christians are welcome here? No. Do we have a giant "no trespassing" signs saying no unbelievers allowed? No. The Left has now become accustomed to seeing Christians bow down by using their magic words: "You are offending me". Seeing a half naked girl on the front page of a magazine at the grocery check where my 8 year old daughter can view it is offensive to me, but do you think those who support the immoral ideologies of the left care? No! I can be offended until pigs fly but no one will remove those magazines because a Christian who holds to a different set of values is offended.

Christians have existed as if God has no power and the devil has authority over all things during the last 50 years and it shows. I use to watch horror movies back in the day and I was reminded of what would happen when a vampire would see the reflection of a cross. This was so painful that the vampire would squirm at its sight. It is the power of God that has such an impact on darkness. Acts 19:15-17, gives an account on a rather comical scene that shows the effect and the authority of the Power of God,

"And the evil spirit answered and said, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?”16 Then the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, overpowered[a] them, and prevailed against them,[b] so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. 17 This became known both to all Jews and Greeks dwelling in Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.

Now the Left no longer has to have their minions silence Christians, they have brainwashed Christians into silencing themselves. It may have the makings of a Hollywood comedy but it’s true. The enemy has stealthily moved Christians into being a contributor to his work. Every time we remove the message of Christ from the presence of an unbeliever, because they deem it offensive, we give them a free pass into farther darkness. It is up to the power of God's word to illuminate ones heart; we should not be working as Christians to stifle that. When we allow the message of Christ to illuminate and expose the issues of darkness the more likely it will be that He will work through them. Every time a Christian runs and hides the power of God because it is offensive to the unbeliever, the more they work in concert with the devil to keep that persons heart in bondage. Removing the message of the Gospel, removes the power of conviction, which is needed to bring the rebellious heart into submission. Our response should be to allow God to deal with the issues that keep the unbelievers heart in bondage. Deal with it.

Doubt is more what exist within the heart of most Christians. If we believe that Christ truly is the King of Glory and has authority of everything that is in heaven and earth, and then darkness would not be able to banish us into silence, instead the power of God would transform the rebellious heart into submission. Think about it.

9/12 Moms Tea Parties

Good Evening blogosphere,

It's early in the morning here but I needed to get this posted before I forget.  Our new site launched this week.  We have been having a very interesting time in our first week.  Our site is distinctfully different than what you may think a mom's network site would consist of.  We have a variety of blogs and forums, touching on both the spiritual and political issues in our nation.  I believe that America's demise reaches much deeper than surface politics and cleaning out our congress.  What has happened in our country over the last 50 years is a complete hijacking of the mind.  The liberal left has created ideologies, policies and viewpoints that has destroy the individual which in turn has destroy our moral fabric.  In order for us to have a true transformation in this country we must deal with the issue of ones heart.  Our site has many resources that does just that. 

I believe that if we only change the political makeup of our congress and heads of states, and do nothing to change the condition of how Americans think, we will find ourselves back in the very place we are right now and things will only get worst.  The second principle of the 9/12 project happens to be the first and foremost for me, it says that "I believe in God and He is the center of my life."  This concept is what will move God back to the center as we refocus our hearts, souls, and mind spiritually.  Then real change will come.  This however takes work.  It is said that our site is too Christian, and therefore we will not receive the kind of membership support seen by more inclusive sites.  My response to that, is if all we are is another networking site that looks to show off our membership then we have missed the opportunity to make a lasting and impactful change for the future of our children. 

When I heard this I discovered one of the most critical problems that exist in our country.  The conditioning by the left to cause people of faith to hide their faith in order that the non-believer is not offended.  Christianity is offensive, because it illuminates the darkness of ones heart. I am a Christian and I have a right to be.   I sense this almost mechanical reflects to run from the non-believer by most Christians.  We have lost our freedom of religion already, if every Christian reference must come down at the presence of a non-believer.  I must respect the non-believer, and by the same token the non-believer must also respect me.   One of our goals is to build a spirit of conviction and confidence within the minds of our moms.  They must value their roles and be able to boldy embrace the role of a mother.

We have a great work in process but we have come up with some rather creative ways to meet our goals. One that is most dearest to me, is the tea party.  The tea party protest mimicked the Boston Tea Party, but our mom's will be having traditional set down tea parties to begin conversations in reconstructing the role of moms and in bringing back God as our center.  These tea parties may be very lavish to very simple but they will have an impact within our circles of influence.  On December 12, 2009 we are asking mom's everywhere to host or sponsor a 9/12 Moms Old Fashion Tea Party.  You can visit our site to get more tips in how to conduct a tea party in your area.  Come by and check us out at  I hope that all of my followers will join with us on 12/12 to embark on changing our country and bringing God back as her center. Have a great day.

Moms in Action - The 9/12 Moms Network

After two weeks of contemplating what will be the best avenue to move the message of the 9/12 project from being a nice set of values to becoming values that the American family is centered on, I have found resolve and my calling. On Monday, the 9/12 Moms Network will be ready to move the message of the 9/12 project from being just a set of principles that sound nice to those being the values that families are built on. I am more of a person who does than a person who talks about things that I would like to do. I do believe sincerely that the role that I have been moved into playing is a role that God has purposed for me. The root of the problems in our nation is that God has been removed from center stage. As I think about the many third world countries and how different things have turned out for America, I am seeing one very pronounced difference; the role in which God has played in building the success of America.

Our founding fathers purposely put as the center of what America would be the acknowledgement and dependence on The Creator. There is but one Creator and He is God the Father. This God has a Son, Jesus who was sent forth to redeem the world. He left for us His power through the Holy Spirit to guide and show us the way to redemption. This is something I believe the founding fathers believed as well. From reading the various founding documents of this nation, the intent of the fathers was not to confine the worship of God but to ensure that those who would come to this country would be free to worship. The work of organizations like the ACLU would seem rather unconstitutional as it continues to try and restrict the practice of worship rather than allow believers to worship and express their convictions freely.

The first Amendment of the Constitution of the United States says:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

It is appalling to see the different laws that have been enacted within the last 40 years that has "prohibited the free exercise" in the expressing of ones’ religion in this country. A child can not wear a shirt that expresses faith in Christ in a public school. Prayer is no longer allowed in school. A Christmas tree can no longer be displayed in schools. Department stores are restricted from saying "Merry Christmas", during the "Christmas" season which is just a fraction of the many was Christians have been prohibited from their right to free expression. I believe that these restrictions of our expressions of faith totally go against what has been established within the United States Constitution. But how has the ACLU been able to garner so many of these restrictions through the courts that was establish to enforce not dismantle the directives of our founding fathers? I believe that this has happened because so many Americans do not have a clue as to the importance of adhering to our constitution nor does many care.

Within the last 40 years their has been a deliberate attempt by the forces that are, to keep the average American preoccupied to the point that such things as our liberties and freedoms, were the farthest things on list of things to be concerned about. Those who are in power in various faucets of American life understand that the one thing that would be a key to destroying the America envisioned by our founding fathers would be to condition Americans to be indulged with self. The issues of our society for the last 40 years have all been ideologies and policies centered on what is best for ones self and not America as a whole. Creating a fractionalized America is the best way to destroy it. If we were truly a united people then the issues of our lives would focus on how we live in unity as a group instead of individually. Liberals and libertarians both focus on individual rights. At the surface this may seem reasonable but I am reminded by Scripture how this has been the catalyst for creating the problems we have experienced in America today. Roman’s 14 gives a detail account on what happens to us when we are only concerned with what is important to ourselves as individual. We must be our brother’s keeper in a sense.

Starting with America's first mistake, removing prayer from school, this was done solely by the complaint of one individual. That person felt that their individual right to not have to be subjected to hearing prayers recited in schools was more important than the whole of the school population, and so for the one, many became restricted in expressing prayer in schools. Second, the sexual revolution, said that one should be free to express themselves freely without regard to the objections of the whole, ones personal morals outweighed the morals of the society. We can see the corruption in the morals of this nation that has resulted from this type of thinking. Every film, sitcom, commercial advertisement, billboard, department store, school and music video is filled with the over reaching negative impacts of the sexual revolution.

The woman's liberation movement, another "me" concept through which the practice of killing children became a legal process in this country shows this same pattern of “me” first. True motherhood requires the "my child is first", attitude. The very name provides evidence of what role is to be played when a woman becomes a mother. However the "me" first attitude promoted through the woman’s liberation movement implies that a woman is first concerned about her own best interest not the interest of anyone else. Abortion has also impacted the way men look at fatherhood. Many men now look to abortion as a way out of their parental responsibility. Through this today’s fathers are promoting the negative impacts of the "me" first liberal left.

As we look back upon the last 40 years of the cancerous "me" mentality we can see that it is time to reverse our way of thinking. There has not been any quantifiable progress by the implementation of the liberal progressive practices forced upon us. The so-called forward thinking concepts of the liberal left and their un-American experiment has failed miserably. I believe however, that God is not as quick to abandon America as she has been to abandon Him. The task of turning our nation around is not an easy one and it is not one that can be accomplished with the faint of heart. Just as it has taken us 50 years to get to this place it will take many years to get back. But I am confident that we can get back to that place where God is the center of American life again. Just say no, to everything liberal, with a fierce and purposeful force. Are would you like to see just how bad things can really get? The same kind of force that was used to dismantle America is the same type of force we will need to take it back. On Monday, the 9/12 Moms Network, will become a part of the process to do just that.

Moms are still the leaders of their households and we believe that it is through equipping moms to rebuild their families through the principles of the 9/12 project that our nation will begin to turnaround. You can visit our new site at You may not be a mom, but if you are someone who believe in the principles this great nation was founded on you are invited to join us. I hope that you will get involved and that you will invite everyone you know who cares, to become an active part of turning this country around. May we all take our positions on the row as we steer this country back.

Black like them, worshipping the god of Blackness

"If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD." This verse has been a very powerful verse in the formation of my attitude toward following and serving the LORD. I use it as the basis for my attitude toward others I come in contact with. For me that verse says, there are many gods out there that man has created to serve. Everyone must decide for themselves what god they will follow and serve. But as Joshua said in the verse above, for Mary Baker I and those who live in my household will serve the LORD. When choosing who it is one will follow, that person must make the choice to follow and serve wholeheartedly. In Matthew 6:24, Jesus says this, “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other You cannot serve God and wealth.”

In this verse Jesus specifically refers to money, but the context of the verse can be used in any situation where a person is serving or giving of themselves. In this passage, we see that there are some who place money as their god, they worship it and their lifestyle is centered on and driven by it. We all know someone whose lifestyle reflect exactly what these Scriptures describe. I have discovered recently that there are many other objects of ones affection that can become ones god. For instance, I have been very intrigued by the manner in which blacks have reacted to the election of President Obama. In most cases, many do not hold to any of the same ideologies he holds to, but they are committed to a certain aspect of him, through which many have found their own empowerment and identity. Regardless of what he does or does not do these people are faithfully committed to a certain thing about President Obama. For a long time, I wondered, why is it that so many blacks are devoted to this man?

I think about my own beliefs and values and find that President Obama and I have nothing in common. So what is different about me and other blacks that do oppose him, and the majority of blacks who are solely devoted to him? I have been totally baffled until today, when the LORD gave me wisdom to see the difference. For those blacks who worship Obama, they follow him because he is black. That’s it, they don’t have to believe anything he believes or have anything in common with him he is just “black like them”. Obama’s blackness is the god that they worship. Then it all began to make sense. I think about the ideologies Barack Obama holds to and the convictions of those in the black community and I see this so crystal clear. For many blacks, the blackness that they worship means more to them than the God that created them black.

Many blacks attend church on a regular basis but their doctrine is one built on the religion of blackness. Social Justice is something that has long been fought through the leadership of the black church. They believe that social justice means that equality in all areas can only be attained by the government. Their views about poverty are evident as many inner cities have been trampled upon waiting for those they elect in government to come through and wipe all of their struggles away. Jesus says however, in John 12:7-8, these words, “7Therefore Jesus said, "Let her alone, so that she may keep it for the day of My burial. 8"For you always have the poor with you, but you do not always have Me." Jesus never gave us command to make the poor equal, we were warned to not take advantage of the poor, or not to mistreat them, or oppress them, but never to make them equal through the distribution of what someone else owns.

If we really look into the true motives of liberals and the left, we can see by the living conditions of many inner city communities, that there is a lot of mistreatment going on, and a lot of taking advantage, any many do not really care about the poor they are only using them for their own advantage. But again in the religion of blackness the concept of social justice has been embraced and instilled in the minds of those who worship at its altar. Although they may sing songs with great passion about how good God is their true deliverer is their government officials. That is what they hoped for in electing President Obama. The highest person in office would be the embodiment of their blackness and finally deliverance would come.

In the area of gay rights, many blacks are totally against gay rights, yet the President and his liberal pundits are fierce supporters of the gay rights agenda. God’s Word however tells us to flee all sexual immorality. It does not matter what it is; we should have nothing to do with supporting, condoning or promoting sexually immoral behaviors. In the religion of blackness sexual immorality is the centerpiece of ones lifestyle. There seem to be no boundaries or accountability whether in the church setting or any other setting where men and women are held to any moral standard. Sexual immorality is glorified in the music, movies, art, publications, and churches, of those who embrace the religion of blackness.

Another Scripture that has formulated my life as a Christian is 2 Corinthians 5:17, which says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” This concept of newness is foreign to those who worship at the altar of blackness. What I have witnessed especially from the clips of preachers of those like Jeremiah Wright is that there is no forgiveness, or redemption. The sins of the past should always be pressed upon the backs of the children of their fathers, fathers to infinite generations. I at one time worshipped there as well. I was led to believe by those in the black leadership that I was better because I was black, and that my enemy was mainly those who were white Evangelical Christians. That in itself shows that those who worship the god of blackness worship a very different god. That is why blacks can follow Obama to the grave, just as I would follow Christ, regardless of what others may say in opposition of him.

I understand why many can have very different convictions and values than Obama, but remain devoted to him. The god of blackness has been taken life form through Obama. Many blacks view him as everything they have ever hoped for in a deliverer. Some see themselves when they look at him in his color and that alone. They have seen their blackness exalted as President Obama holds the highest office in our land. They don’t see a President that represents the people of America they see someone who represents what their blackness is all about.

For me, there is nothing more precious to me than the forgiveness and redemption Christ has afforded me. The person I use to be I will never be again, because I am a new person in Christ. The manner in which many blacks view President Obama, is the same way I feel about Jesus, people can say whatever they want about Him but as for me and my house we shall serve the LORD.

My New Endeavor

I am always impressed with my American sisters and brothers.  They always seem to show their greatest character under pressure. Americans are amazing people.  We are compassionate in times when compassion is needed.  We unite when a call for uniting is amongst us. We share when our fellow citizens are faced with a crisis and goes without.  I did not think I can be prouder to be an American, but today I stand corrected.  I can not count the number of responses that have come into my email, my blogspot, my facebook page, and over the blogosphere in support of my article and appearance on the Glenn Beck show.  One would think that inspite of the constant racial intimidation by the left that many whites in this country would be just worn out and tired of having anything to do with another black person.  If anything, many have truly shown their insistence on tearing down the racial tensions that divide us.

In the midst of all of this there has been minimal negative comments.  The good in this case greatly overweighs the bad.  I hear over and over the cries of agreement in seeing our country return to the principles of our founding fathers.  The Left has truly forged a clever and well thought out plan to "fundamentally change America".  But it did not just happen upon us in November 2008, the left's desire to change the construct of what we know as America started more than 100 years ago when Franklin Roosevelt injected the first social structure of progressivism through his "New Deal".  Now we see that it was really a bad deal for America.  What we are witnessing as Americans today is the crowning of the epitomy of liberal progressivism in this country.

It is as if Frankenstiens monster has received the long awaited jolt of life.  As you all may have realized by now, I love comedy.  So I am going to use the reference to the movie "Young Frankenstien". In this film the young Dr. Frankenstien, endeavored in an experiment to create his own form of humanity.  His intent was to masterfully create a superhuman with strength and intelligence like no other.  However in sending out his wacky assistant Igor to retreive a brain for his creation, something went wrong.  Igor retrieved the brain of an abnormal person and presented it to Dr. Frankenstien to be transplanted in his monster.  The end result was a rather challenged monster instead of a superhuman.  In witnessing the current state of our elected officials in Washington, it certainly reflects that there are alot of "Abbie Normals", in DC.  But Americans are not content with allowing this experiment gone bad to destroy what is left of our nation.

I was honored to be among the moms who voiced their concerns about the future of our country. After the second interview I began thinking that God has a certain work for me to do in this as well.  My blogpage is just my opinion about the various issues that we are facing as a nation.  Although it makes for interesting reading, I am personally not contributing to helping other mom's develop their place in this fight to take back our nation.  Lori at, saw the need to create a site so that those women who want to voice their concerns can be heard and she has done a great job.  I believe that my role in this was not just to keep moms hyped up but to build a presence among moms in this country to help us reach our goals of changing this country.  In speaking to Barbara Curtis of who is also personally involved in the life of moms throughout this country, I have decided to do something more.

Many women have emailed me and encouraged me to take a more active role in this effort so that is what I am going to do.  On October 19th, a new website to forge the work of the 9/12 Moms will be launched.  There have been a team of moms that have come together to work with me in building the site so that we can effective reach our goals of helping moms impact the nation.  My role in the lives of women have always taken a mentor type role.  The site that has been develop will provide many resources and tools to mentor moms in rethinking their roles as mothers.  We will provide Biblical topics and inspirational and challenging blogs, groups and forums.  We will also have state groups where moms can form meetup groups in their churches, towns and schools. As a mom of a disable adult, as a mom who once held a career outside the home, as a single mom and as a mom who has experienced domestic violence, I believe my life experiences can help impact the lives of moms in a positive manner.  I hope that you will encourage the moms you know to join us as we will have a very comprehensive site for the moms to participate in and become active in their communities.

The Left now has full reign on forging their progressive ideologies and Americans are now waking up to see that this is a monster of mass destruction that we can not afford to run rampant.  I believe that we have our work cut out for us but we can put this beast to rest once and for all if we all play our parts.  I hope you will all join in with the moms in support of our efforts to impact our nation.  I will be moving my blog to the new site.  On Sunday, October 18th, I will be announcing the link to the new site as it is currently not ready to be launched.  I thank you all who have linked to my blogspot and I pray that the LORD's blessings will fill your life.  Please be praying for us as we do our part to change our world through moms.

God's blessings be upon all of you,

Glenn Beck's 9/12 Project looks at the concerns of America's Mom's

This Friday, "The Glenn Beck Show" will be airing a special studio audience segment of the 9/12 project which will showcase the concerns that moms across America have about the future of America. The show will be airing at 5 pm Eastern Time on the Foxnews channel.   I have been privileged to be amongst the many wonderful women who will be sharing their concerns with other Americans.  Although women will be speaking, men may hold these very same concerns. I  hope that all will tune in for this special segment. Glenn Becks 9 Principles and 12 values are those that we as American's have lost over the past 3 decades.  I will be joined by my new special blogger on  I am looking forward to seeing what is on the minds of other mothers across this country.  Here is a list of Glenn Becks 9/12 principles and values.

1. America Is Good.

2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.

God “The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.” from George Washington’s first Inaugural address.

3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.

Honesty “I hope that I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider to be the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.” George Washington

4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.

Marriage/Family “It is in the love of one’s family only that heartfelt happiness is known. By a law of our nature, we cannot be happy without the endearing connections of a family.” Thomas Jefferson

5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.

Justice “I deem one of the essential principles of our government… equal and exact justice to all men of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political.” Thomas Jefferson

6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.

Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness “Everyone has a natural right to choose that vocation in life which he thinks most likely to give him comfortable subsistence.” Thomas Jefferson

7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.

Charity “It is not everyone who asketh that deserveth charity; all however, are worth of the inquiry or the deserving may suffer.” George Washington

8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.

On your right to disagree “In a free and republican government, you cannot restrain the voice of the multitude; every man will speak as he thinks, or more properly without thinking.” George Washington

9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

Who works for whom? “I consider the people who constitute a society or a nation as the source of all authority in that nation.” Thomas Jefferson

The 12 Values

* Honesty

* Reverence

* Hope

* Thrift

* Humility

* Charity

* Sincerity

* Moderation

* Hard Work

* Courage

* Personal Responsibility

* Gratitude

A Two Edged Sword

Could liberals have been so conniving that they would use racism as a two-edged sword against the people of America. Tonight while visiting the American Thinker website, I happened upon an article, titled "How to find millions of racist". My first impression was that the liberals were bearing down on the resolve of American as the blows of racism have been posed against white conservatives, especially Christians. Then the thought hit me. Maybe the liberals’ attempt to incite racism has failed so miserably that they must find a different way of utilizing their once-held trump card. It is quite obvious during these last weeks that liberal Democrats need the race card. They need racism to work by sending us back into the racially tense times of the 60's or by calling conservative whites racist so much that they fall into that mindset.

The post on American Thinker verified the latter as the author warned the Left of their effectiveness in using race as a tactic of division. For Americans who have left behind racism, nothing the left says can bring them back to that place again. I left racism behind because it was the wrong path to take. It goes against the very fiber of my faith. It goes against the vision of our founders to see America united. It goes against the pleas of Dr. King, in having us all be able to live together, walking hand in hand. I never knew just how vicious and determined liberals are to destroy the spirit of this country. Is this how they hope to attain to their socialist views? They would at least need those who would benefit from socialism. Without racism, conservatives may begin to open the eyes of those who could benefit from its great principles the most. This is a catastrophe for the left.

For liberals, racism must have an audience. Without one, they will lose their hold on the black community. Blacks have been that audience for liberals to incite racism against white Conservative Christian Evangelicals. But what if blacks discovered that conservatives are the ones who desire to embrace and provide for them a path to a success that is within their grip? What if blacks realized that those agencies that provide the extra resources to help them get by are the same people liberals have accused of being racist? They are the conservatives who give through their churches to support community social programs. The Left could definitely use a few million racists in their camp right now. Since the only group who seems to be racist are in their camp. They could use a couple million racist to help keep blacks and other minority on the attack against conservatives. The left's two-edge sword of racism, attempts to keep both sides wounded. The best remedy to head off the liberals is to allow their name calling to go through one ear and out the other. No one can convince me that I am someone that I am not, unless of course, if I was that someone. As I see the horns of evil rear its ugly head I have taken on the responsibility to sound the alarm and that I will do.

The only individuals impacted by the Left calling Conservative whites racist, are liberal blacks. I would ask what is the Left afraid of? Could it be that the eyes of blacks are opening to their real enemy? I have been privileged to make acquaintances with a great number of black conservatives in the past weeks. Black conservatives are embracing their white brothers and sisters all over this country, and there are many blacks who may not have understood the principles of conservatism who are finding out that there is much to embrace. I do not feel like I am outnumbered any longer as an American conservative who happens to be black. I would like to say to my fellow conservatives who happen to be white, don't take the bait. Race baiting is not only used to stir up liberal blacks but it is also being used as a ploy to recruit non-suspecting conservatives. Be on the look out for trolls sent to draw you in.

Don't take the bait and watch out for the sword.

America, A will to Stand

After the response of my first blog titled “Why I am no longer an African American”, I have discovered that there are many in this country who desire not to walk in the shadows of our past. In the past couple of weeks, the people of this great nation has watched the liberal left incite racial tensions like many have not experienced in a long time. It appears that now everything is a ploy for race baiting and the stirring of racial tensions. How can the evil face of racism be so intensified in one of the most racially accepting times in our country’s history? There is a very identifiable source to the racial tensions that are constantly arising. Race baiting can only be deployed on those who have a dysfunctional disposition toward it. In this cycle, race baiting is to liberal blacks as strong drink is to an alcoholic.

White liberals have convinced those in the black community that their hatred toward white Christian Evangelicals is justifiable. Can racism be justifiable? Many radical blacks from the 1960’s who are still stuck in the past obviously think so. As we think about the cycle of racism in this country there has existed a cycle of justifying ones hatred toward another. First the slave becomes equal to the free man, receiving land and opportunities equal to the free man. This develops a spirit of racism on the justification that blacks were inferior and therefore did not deserve equal rights. This attitude was held and even encouraged by some churches. I wonder if the churches back then had Bibles to read from and if they had Bibles did they contain passages of Scripture like those found in John 3:16-17, which says,

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17"For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him."

These Scriptures do not make any mention of conditions that would negate God’s extension of grace. It does not say “unless”, “except”, “in the even of”, or any other phrase, word or terms that would cause those reading it to give claim to any justification. God’s Word said that He sent Jesus into the “world” to save “whosoever”. This does not give reference to ethnicity, race, age, gender, economic status, educational accomplishments, physical stature or any of the superficial categorizing that happens as humans relate to each other. However, the racism that arose after the period of Emancipation, appear justifiable to those who embraced it. This type of reasoning kept many conditions of segregation alive and well in our country until the radical 1960’s. As Americans became more knowledgeable, the attitude about racism changed and many whites would take to the streets with Dr. King in an effort to eradicate racism in the United States during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s.

I am mainly speaking about black and white Americans in this post but there are many races of people that can be place in this same case against Americans, specifically white Evangelical Americans. There are other races that may seem that they are justified in their hate toward another group because _________. Japanese can hate Americans because of what happened at Hiroshima. Jews can hate Germans because of what happened at the Holocaust. Mexicans can hate Americans because of what happened at the Spanish American war, and so forth and so on. Everyone has their justifications for hating the next group, but is it right? Before I changed my life in 1992, I felt I could as well justify my dislikes for whites. However, as I was discipled in the ways of Christ I discovered a host of problems that were arising due to my way of thinking. 1 John 4 was a book that changed my life in many ways. Today, I am perplexed at how so many people were able to by pass this and many more passages of Scriptures that would destroy anyone’s justification of hating another person. In 1 John 4:19-21, it says,

"If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can[c] he love God whom he has not seen? 21 And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also."

These Scriptures leave no room for justifications. If we love God, we “must” love our brothers and sisters also. Could God be talking about our blood relatives in this Scripture? No he is talking about any human being. One may ask, “what if the person did something so horrible that forgiveness is not possible?” If someone killed my ancestors because they did not like them, could that be justifiable? How about if they lynched 100 black people, that would make it bad enough to not love and to not forgive, right? God made sure He took care of every situation when He provided this Scripture in Matthew 6:14-16,

“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

Furthermore God says, this in 2 Corinthians 5:17,
17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”

As I grew in my faith and was presented with each of these passages of Scripture, my entire viewpoint about people changed. Just these passages of Scripture left me with no defense of the grudges I once held against whites. I was stripped completely and was left with only one choice; love with a sincere heart. I had to find a way to live out the Word of God in loving others, even those I once believed I could not love. As I continued to step out and befriend others especially whites, I discovered the most beautiful thing of all. I could love anyone, if I allowed my heart to. If I extended a hand of grace instead of a fist of hatred, lives could be change and new relationships could be built. I loved this new world that I began to exist in. The more I reached out the farther I parted with those old ways of hatred. Today, I could not comprehend how a person can hate someone because of race or be unforgiving because of a past hurt.

As I watch the President’s supporters and his Administration throw up the issue of race at every opportunity available, I understand why. White liberals know that black racist hold on to their racism because they deem it justifiable. Blacks are falsely reminded that it is the white Christian that caused them the pain they endured. They neglect to also remind these same blacks that white liberals of today’s where those Christians who held racist feeling during those dark days. They neglect to inform them that there were two groups of white Christians. The Republican who held to Christian values as those of conservatives today, and the Democrat Christians who embraced Jim Crow laws. During the 1960’s when race relations were the worst, liberal whites discovered their golden goose, when Republicans oppose Affirmative Action.

Republicans desired different ways of obtaining equal employment opportunities but Democrats saw something different; the black vote. The opposition of Republicans to Affirmative Action provided Democrats with their perfect setting for race baiting and justifiable racism against Conservative whites. Black leaders felt that the Democrat Party was embracing their cause for social justice and funneled these race baiting ideologies through the black church. Black Church leaders saw an opportunity to gain a voice and power during these times and obliged this message instead of spreading the reconciliatory message of the Gospel and extend God’s love and the right hand of fellowship to all.

In the many encouraging responses to “Why I am no longer an African American”, I noticed a distinct pattern arising. Everyone who responded positively was Conservative or referred to themselves as Conservative Christians, and the few that responded negatively were liberals. Liberals can not bear the thought of their race baiting tactics not working. They must work in order to keep this country divided and the black vote in tact. But the process has begun and we who embrace the principles of America will not be lead astray by race baiting. Race may be a driving force for the racist liberal but it will no longer divide Americans. Those of us, who has chosen to stand together, have left behind our justifications and we embrace each other as one people. Racism and race baiting, may work in the world where liberals live. But as the spirit of America returns, we will overcome this enemy within. This enemy that wishes to divide and conquer, will only bring us closer together.

My hope is that blacks that have been chained by the so-called justifications of racial hatred will realize their error, for there is no justification for racism, it is wrong no matter what reason you may have for it. The enemy is not an American brother or sister but the hatred that has kept us apart. Think about it.

The American Thinker

Hello Everyone,

It's been quite the weekend as my full article of "Why I am no longer an African American", was featured this weekend on "The American Thinker". The response from the article was totally humbling. It revealed something very powerful about the resolve of the American people to overcome. Many express their shared sentiment with the article and their desire to see America once and for all part ways with racial divisiveness. The article was also featured on as well.

It was also touching that the article appeared at the same time American's remembered 9/11 and American's also marched on the nation's capitol on 9/12 for the Tea Party event in DC. My hope is that this weekend is the beginning of the rebuilding of America. I think that our politicians received a resounding messages from Americans this weekend in DC. This article reminded also of the little people in "Horton, Hears a Who," As the citizens of Whoville were about to meet their final fate, the small voices broke through the small speck to reach the world around them. This is what I hear American's saying through the responses to this article and to the responses to our government, "We are here, we are here, we are here. And we will remain here as we give our useless politicial an early retirement in 2010.

Have a great week and thank you all who took the time to post to this version of "Why I am no longer an African American."

So you don't like Chocolate Ice Cream, you must be a racist..

If you think that sounds totally idiotic, how stupid do you think it is to relate not supporting Obama’s death care to being racist? Maybe I napped too long, or I had taken too long of a vacation one year and missed the day America went back to the horrors of the 1960’s. Diane Watson’s blaming racism for the reasoning behind one’s rejection of Obamacare is social intimidation at its wackiest point ever. The protestors at the town hall meetings being called Nazi’s and mobsters are another display of their use of social intimidation. There only manner of dealing with opposition is social intimidation. The only way the left knows how to keep opposition at bay is through social intimidation.

It is sad to see that for the last 4 decades this same type of social intimidation has kept blacks clinging to the Democratic Party. Blacks in the inner city have been brainwashed to believe that their source of government welfare will vanish at the hands of conservatives and Republicans if they dared to vote in their favor. Regardless of whether the liberal happens to be black or white social intimidation is their famed attack dog. Parting ways with welfare entitlements is the best thing a person can do for themselves. These services were meant as a short term, very short term aid and not a generational crush. The habit of living on government entitlement destroys innovation and ones ability to strive for a higher standard of living.

Diane Watson had no shame in expressing her feelings toward the opposition. I am sure if she would have thought that they held any type of absurdity she would have refrained from making them. Her use of social intimidation in the form of racism was not even a second thought. As I look back on the events from November 4, 2008, when the world supposed that America was finally putting to rest her dark and racially divided past, I am appalled and disgusted at the behaviors of Ms. Watson, Professor Gates and Nancy Pelosi. I don’t like chocolate ice cream, my favorite is French Vanilla and because I choose to make my own decision as to what I prefer, does not make me a racist. There was a time in America where we had the right to stand against whatever we desired. This tendency to silence opposition through intimidation is just another revelation at the radical dictator-like actions of the left.

In thinking about these events, it brought to my mind a scene from the 1980’s comedy, “I’m Gonna Get you Sucka”, when Huggybear is released from jail and begins to walk about in platform shoes, with a fish tank at the bottom. As he walks the city street everyone begins to take note of his out of date attire, many bursting to utter laughter. It’s the same for those of us who have come out of those turbulent times wiser and more appreciative of the knowledge we have gained from the racial tensions of the past. It is an obscurity to us, of the conservative mindset who follow the practice of judging others by the content of ones character and not by the color of their skin, to think of things through the lens of racism. But to the conservative this is not the least bit funny.

The radical left liberals both black and white are the only ones who are still battling the hate filled days of the past. Every policy and program they have ever engineered takes us back instead of forward. Their hi-jacking of almost every sector of industry and its derailment thereof, is only hurting our great nation. My question is this. Why has the government even become involved in the Health Care business in the first place? Health Care is a business liability that should be accounted for in the business model. Our dilapidated business model, brought to its destruction at the hands of liberal corporate executives is just what the left has ordered. The supposed healthcare crisis is of no surprise to liberals, who intentionally targeted the many sectors of our industry to insure that they would have the opportunity to bring about socialism to this country through healthcare.
Healthcare is something we all need at some point in our lives. If the liberals who control our governing authorities can take possession of it then they can also take possession of many other areas of our lives. When we are healthy we perform better, when we perform better, we work harder, when we work harder we increase productivity, when we increase productivity profits rise, and when profits rise employers should be able to provide for their employees a competitive package of benefits. Today’s business model does not seek profit as businesses once sort in the past. They seek to control the social environments in which we all live. Warren Buffet was definitely not desiring that John McCain win the 2008 Presidential election, nor was George Soro’s, both these men have built their empires through the business sector but their desire is to promote liberal socialist policies through the contributions they provide for the candidate they choose to fund. The left have always sort to steam role the public through social intimidation of the rich and powerful.

We all know that it is absurd to contribute racism to rejecting Obamacare, just as it is absurd to claim that one would be racist for not liking chocolate ice cream. However, this social intimidation regardless of its absurdity is meant to silence the opponent and bring for the will of the left, just as in the radical days of the 60’s. The election of President Obama should have been the final nail in the coffin of racism between blacks and whites in this country, instead his administration only attempts to use racism as a means of social intimidation to silence those who disagree.

We as American’s do not need universal health care. We need to turn our voices to the corporations to whom we provide profit. We spend our money on products and services provided through the business sector, and we expect these companies to use our monies wisely. In fact, we should be holding these companies accountable through attending the stock meetings to inquire as to what they are doing with the profits they secure. Are they too busy stuffing the bank accounts and contribution funds of liberal executives and politicians? Or is it their funding of liberal social policies that see the bulk of company profits that could be used to provide affordable healthcare package.
It is my belief, that with the help of these corporations that healthcare reform bills such as Obamacare has been pushed upon the American people. As a nation we have become too comfortable in trusting that those who are in control of our dollars will do the right thing. I am sure we all see that those who should have our best interest don’t. Whether it is Obamacare, taxation, border issues, or what type of ice cream one likes or dislike, as American’s we have to come back to the practice of holding our leaders accountable. And don’t be intimidated by the social intimidations of the liberal left in the process. Speak up and speak boldly, say it loud, “We’re American and proud!”

Why I am no longer an African American

Good morning Blogosphere,

I am posting an article I submitted to the American Thinker this week. After gathering thoughts about this topic, many other questions arose that I felt would inspire others to think about the roles those who supposedly represent us play in making decisions for the whole that may not represent the whole. It is time we learn to speak and think for ourselves. No one, two or three persons should be able to represent an individual. This practice of allowing those such as Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Jeremiah Wright and others represent the idealogies of all blacks have become a fatal mistake. In looking at the viewpoints and attitudes of those who came out of the radical days of the civilrights movements of the 1960's, I find myself a stranger. So I would like to hear the opinions of others who may have had similiar thought or who may began to think differently after reading my article. Here is the entire article submitted to the American Thinker:
Why I am no longer an African American

After observing the attitudes of African Americans and obtaining an understanding of the distinction of that title, I must now say that I can no longer identify myself as an African American. The classification of African American for the black population in America came as a result of the civil rights movement in the 1960. This reclassification held several proclamations and principles to which I can no longer identify with as a citizen of this country. The term African American was created to signify the black American’s love for Africa, the once held motherland for which we were all suppose to long to return too. This title holds anti-American sentiments to which I can not embrace. Thinking honestly about this I can very well say that I have never once “longed” to return to Africa. In fact, I do not think about Africa or even what it would be like to live there, as I have always been content living in the country of my birth. Africa is a beautiful country and it has a rich diversity of wonderful people. However, the classification of African America says that although I live in America my loyalties and allegiance is to the country of Africa. My loyalties and my allegiance are first to Jesus Christ who is the LORD and Savior of my life.

It is my faith that drives everything about what I believe and hold as dear. The founders of this country envisioned a nation that would secure the God-given rights of its citizens. The desired that every citizen born in this country would not suffer the oppression they endured under England’s rule, set as the backdrop for guaranteeing freedom for all Americans. They especially desired that our nation would be one ruled and protected by our Creator God. Many beg to differ but the founder’s insistence that God guide the ways of this nation is apparent in their acknowledgement of His hand in the creation of life, the rights of life and the prosperity of life. It is these principles of the American way that make me proud to just be an American. So therefore I will begin to select for my identity the title of American. The radical ideologies of blacks involved in the civil rights movements that brought forth this reclassification came through the influence of those liken to Professor Gates, the Harvard professor who became livid because he was questioned of his identity by a white police officer.

Those who embrace Professor Gates sentiments are those who today still believe that America owes the black population for the horrors of slavery. They are those that continue to stoke the fires of racial hatred toward other races and promote the continued attitude of pity within the black community. They also hold to the teachings of black liberation theology a school of thought that I never knew existed until the presidential campaign of then Senator Barak Obama. The teachings of black liberation theology run counterproductive to the American way. They also run counterproductive to the love I hold for my country. The ideologies of the African American classification are not ideologies I ever held to. In fact the term has nothing to do with people of African ancestry. My parents never taught us to hold to any allegiance to Africa. When my mother did express her feelings of pride regarding her heritage it was to the tribe of the Cherokee Indians. I began to think about how we all get to be categorized in the first place. I have not noticed on any forms that the category of American is an option to be selected. Is this division amongst us perpetrated by our very own government?

Would a white South African be classified as an African American upon obtaining American citizenship? Would a person who is white by color, and was born in any part of Africa be considered an African American after gaining citizenship in this country? They would truly be African Americans. It is obvious that the classification of African American has nothing to do with those born of African descent. It is a radical group of black American who hold to the anti-American views of those shared by Jeremiah Wright, Professor Gates, Jesse Jackson, President Obama and many more who have come out of the radical civil rights movement of the 1960’s. Because of these things I now part ways with the classification of African American because I hold no allegiance to Africa. I do not desire to return there. I hold to the rich tenants of faith that many of the founders of this country hold too. I embrace the quality of freedom to worship, freedom to have my own opinion, freedom to express my views, freedom to achieve whatever it is God has created me to achieve. That is why when the next US Census occurs I will be making a new category just for me, the classification of being an American.

I am hoping that I will find others like me as well who are willing to break ties with the things that divide us and embrace the timeless principles that has made this country the greatest nation on earth.

The High Road

I was met this morning in my devotion time with a rather bold challenge I would like to share. Since the election of Barak Obama to the presidency of the United States, I have been seeing our country through some very dismal lenses. Each day brings about a new challenge for our already struggling country. Those of us who grip our heart at the fierce and rapid pace by which Obama and his administration is transitioning this country to a European look-alike, are increasing daily. As Obama loses support his ambition to bring about the America that he envisions becomes more urgent. We have shouted, we have yelled, we have gotten mad, we have blogged our thoughts and views but what have we really done to save this great nation. What is happening to our nation is not just political it is spiritual. In many ways we have exchanged the good heritage of this country for a much more sinister one.

One of the things I was challenged about is my role as a Christian in the situation of our country. Proverbs 26:4-5 says this:

Do not answer a fool according to his folly, or you will also be like him. 5(Answer a fool as his folly deserves, that he not be (E)wise in his own eyes.

I had to think about what answer I had for the things I disagreed with in these past months. One of the things I have now discovered in all of this is that Obama and his administration are hoping for our continued bitterness and anger over his decisions. Can God work for us when believers behave with ungodly attitudes? This is very hard for me to write, I would rather be letting off steam like we have been accustomed to doing. But what do we accomplish? Our strength is in administering the love, grace and mercies of God. God is not impartial to believers when they speak out in ways that are not like Him. We have power within us to change the course of these events if we are led by the spirit of God and behave in lack manner.

So tonight I am asking all of those who are like minded to consider taking a new direction. Joshua 1:9-11 says this and I believe it is appropriate for the place we find ourselves as Americans:

9"Have I not commanded you? (A)Be strong and courageous! (B)Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go." 10Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying, 11"pass through the midst of the camp and command the people, saying, 'prepare provisions for yourselves, for within (C)three days you are to cross this Jordan, to go in to possess the land which the LORD your God is giving you, to possess it.'"

As Joshua encouraged those who were with him, I am also encouraging those of you who stand together to bring this country back from the brink of disaster. There is much we can be doing instead of allowing our hearts to become harden. How do we possess this land again and bring it back to its moral foundation and reverence and God-fearing state? Our greatest work is in becoming visible, actively involved in our local communities and expressing our needs and concerns in the public square. We must join our local community organizations, not those affiliated with a specific party but those affiliated with making policy within our neighborhoods. The greatest mistake I believe we have made is to become silent when major decision was made concerning our way of life. Our silence in past years has caused those who desired to rebrand American to work as if this country was theirs to conquer. But when we so speak it does not have to be filled with bitterness or unforgiveness. Our voices do not have to be insulting or belittling in order to make our point. We can not forget the standard that Christ has set forth for us. When we walk according to the ways of darkness we cause more harm than good. As Christians we have the most powerful weapon on our side, answered prayer. But God’s favor will not be granted to those who are not following His instruction.

When we pray, we must pray without offense of our own. There are times when after I have written a blog, the Spirit of God convicts me and I am left feeling that I could have done things differently. So as of today, I will be removing those blogs that reflect an attitude unlike Christ and embark on writing in a manner that will help take us to a better place. We can turn this country around by living according to the great standards God has set forth for us. It is not that we behave as if we are happy with what is going on in our country, but we have been given hope through Christ Jesus and that hope which we possess must be a beacon a light to all those who are looking up to us. The greatest thing that can happen to our President is that he see’s the error of his ways. But how can they see if they don’t have anything to reflect anything different. I had a visual of what is going on right now. I saw everyone up in arms, fighting and yelling at each other. We were all consumed with what was going wrong, the evil we saw caused evil to take hold of us. This is what happens when we don’t deal spiritually with the things that are happening around us. James 4:6-8 challenges us in this manner:

But (A)He gives a greater grace Therefore it says, "(B)GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE." 7(C)Submit therefore to God (D)Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8(E)Draw near to God and He will draw near to you (F)Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and (G)purify your hearts, you (H)double-minded.

This is exactly what we should be doing, drawing near to God. Not being sucked into the chaos that surrounds us. So I hope that as you read this post that you will consider what God may be saying to you. I hope that you will decide as well to put down the club in your hand and submit our country, our leaders and our future as Americans to God. He is the only one that can change any of this. Will you join me?
