A lot of people have asked me lately how I, as a Christian, could possibly support a guy who cheated on his wife and has been divorced twice and is on his third marriage.
First I’ll give you my Christian answer which is pretty obvious: Forgiveness. Newt has asked for it and I’d NOT be a Christian if I couldn’t give it to him. Matthew 6:15 says, “But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.”
Newt is a politician and he could be lying, but to me with regards to this particular issue, he seems quite genuine. Every interview that I’ve heard him talking about this topic he seems genuinely sorry.
It is also important from a Christian perspective to remember that we are all sinners. Every other candidate who has ever run for President was also a sinner. However, I definitely prefer my candidate to realize this and have a personal relationship with Christ and realize HE is the ONLY means to true forgiveness and total annihilation of those sins as if he or More >
It is always nice when I get to spend the day away from the busyness of work and share it with my family. I’m sure if I had to work today I’d be bugged and wishing I didn’t have to. It is nice to be able to set aside a day to reflect on many things we normally don’t think about on a daily basis. Our many freedoms! Freedom isn’t just a word! Freedom is something that has been granted to us by our Creator and protected countless times throughout many generations with blood, sweat, and tears…and not only by our brave Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines but also by their families.
While we are here taking a day off of work, or maybe even working (and angry that we can’t be off), let us remember that many have risked there lives and, at this very moment, many are still risking their lives for us to do so. Also let us remember that many families never saw their loved ones again after sending them off to war. And many families now long to be sharing a “day off” with their loved ones but More >
Honestly the title of this article bothers me. It is like saying, “Merry Xmas” or “Happy turkey day.” It takes away the true meaning of the day and what it is all about. I believe it is either a concerted effort by the left or a subconscious effort to undermine its importance.
Truly it is Independence Day that we celebrate. 4th of July is just a day. But Independence Day is a thing…something we celebrate that actually means something! What is it and what does it mean? Should I even have to explain it? Unfortunately yes, in this day and age where most people attribute fireworks, BBQs, and swimming in the pool to July 4, I do.
On July 4, 1776 our founder’s officially adopted the Declaration of Independence which essentially told Great Britain to “bite off” stating that Great Britain had violated the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God (yes we are a country founded on the God of the Bible). It went on to say, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, More >
Are we ready for a woman President? Well I know that I am! Especially if it is Michelle Bachmann or someone who is as RIGHT ON as she is! I know the democrats aren’t ready for a woman though…no matter what party she comes from. They quickly realized after voting in Barrack Obama that when America votes for someone they’ve always touted as being “held down” then they can’t tout it anymore! If America votes for a woman next what will they have left to “fight” for?
Bachmann, a Congresswoman from Minnesota, is an impressive woman who has good looks to match her brains! She has true conservative values and mirrors what my ideal candidate would be.
After participating in a few GOP debates, Bachmann officially entered the race near her childhood home in Iowa.
“My name is Michele Bachmann and I stand here among many friends to announce that I am formally running for the president of the United States. Together, once again, we can secure the promise of the future for America. I want to More >
I hate to do it…I hate to talk about the dead. But I have to. I feel that with the recent events starting with the NAACP passing a resolution to condemn Tea Party racism, the recent news about the New Black Panther party, and now the viral video that caught Shirley Sherrod, USDA state director of rural development bragging about how she treated a white constituent differently than she would’ve treated a black one, that the record needs to be set straight.
Robert Byrd was given a pass about his time in the Ku Klux Klan because he was a registered Democrat. Take a moment to think about all of the “passes” that are given to Democrats. Seriously think about it. It could be ethical violations, moral violations or even legal violations. They get a pass until it can’t be given anymore.
During Robert Byrd’s funeral, the first black President (Clinton) gave a eulogy that made you think Byrd was just a “good old boy” doing what he had to in order to get elected. The second black More >

Martin Luther King believed that people should “not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character” Martin Luther King was a Republican fighting for equality during the civil rights movement. His racist opponent was the Democrat Leader, Robert Byrd, who was a former KKK member as well as a “Grand Kleagal” for the KKK, recruiting members for $10 a head and establishing a KKK chapters in West Virginia. He joined because it “offered excitement” and because the Klan was an effective force in “promoting American values.” As the Democrat leader and President of the Senate in the 1960′s he referred to Martin Luther King as a “trouble maker” and he and other Democrat lawmakers denounced Martin Luther King as a “self-seeking rabble rouser”. The Democrats fought against the Civil Rights Movement and supported slavery. They were the ones turning water hoses and dogs on black protesters in the 1960′s. Remember Governor George More >

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to More >
Mexico gets its a say in one of the lawsuits challenging Arizona’s immigration enforcement law.
Mexico says it wants to defend its citizens’ rights and that the law would lead to racial profiling and hinder trade and tourism. It also says the law would hinder work against drug trafficking and related violence.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who signed the law on April 23 and changes to it on April 30, has lawyers defending it in court.
In a statement issued last week, Brewer said she was “very disappointed” to learn of Mexico’s filing and reiterated that “Arizona’s immigration enforcement laws are both reasonable and constitutional.”
“I believe that Arizona will ultimately prevail and that our laws will be found constitutional,” Brewer added.
Brewer and other supporters of the bill say the More >
Miller who is almost always at the heels of Nancy Pelosi and doesn’t miss a photo op with her, is one of the nations most liberals congressman. He proudly pushed for the disastrous health insurance killer we now call Obamacare.
After his vote he emailed his consti tuents:
“Hundreds of people from my congressional district have called in the last few days about health care… I am truly proud to say that, despite the intense and unified opposition…, Congress has prevailed.”
So besides being a prime example of why we need term limits…and being in office for 36 years, who really is George Miller?
