I am of the mind these days that even with a Congressman or Senator who seems pretty conservative, if there is a new person who seems conservative, maybe it is time to replace the incumbent. Some reasons for that would be 1) Things are not improving with the Congress we have. 2) If they assume they will be reelected why fight the way “We The People” want them to. 3) When they realize they will be replaced if they don’t produce results they will start doing what we want. 4) Most will not impose term limits on themselves so it is up to us.

There are many more reasons but those are a good start. The reason the country is in the shape it’s in is we all got complacent. We didn’t keep an eye on them, as long as the politicians could make deals, take payoffs, be pressured by the parties and lobbyists, hide what they were doing with a media who didn’t do their job, they never paid a price for their actions. They keep passing laws that everyone has to live with except the politicians, don’t believe me, I refer you to ObamaCare. I blame myself for letting it happen, I blame Christians for not voting their values and yes I blame you too. We all have to share in the blame as well as work together to resolve it.

One person can’t fix it, one group can’t fix it, but if we work together we can do great things as a country. We all have to take responsibility and do our part. When we change our attitude, stop fighting each other, get our heads in the right place, WE WIN. It has happened over a long period of time. I know in my case I used to think my vote didn’t matter, after all it was only one vote. I now realize that is what they want you to think. I’m talking about both parties, the Democrats want to discourage Republicans and Republicans want to discourage Democrats. They then try to motivate their base. I say stop listening to both parties and vote every time. Don’t give them control. Make them fear the voters so they will actually realize they work for us.

I also stopped donating to the party. I now send money to the candidate I want to support. If you give it to the party then they decide where it goes. That is one of the reasons we get some of the politicians we have because the party funds the one who will vote the party line rather than what the people they represent want. Defund the party and you get more candidates who work for the people.

The Senate Conservatives Fund has not endorsed anyone. They say “Minnesota is on our 2014 Priority List because it presents conservatives with a potential pick-up opportunity. Incumbent Democratic Senator Al Franken has an extremely liberal voting record and is running for re-election in a state that could be competitive for Republicans.”

Personally I would vote for anyone over Al Franken. I remember when he won that seat, I questioned it then and have never seen or read anything that answers those questions. There is a campaign to defeat Al Franken, check out the article by Lloyd Marcus.

I have people tell me all the time about “the separation of church and state”. From the things I have read and the way I understand it. The Constitution says that Congress can’t  force you to follow a religion or stop you from The Faith of your choice. In other words that is YOUR Business, NOT THEIRS! I don’t see anywhere that you can’t or shouldn’t be in government if you are a person of Faith. If I believed what some people try to tell me, the only people who could run for office would be atheists. As a matter of fact a large portion of The Founding Fathers had Seminary degrees.

The lie The Enemy (replace the enemy with your version, ie Satan, The Left, Communists, Progressives etc.) is only interested in stopping Christians. Why is that? I personally feel it is because Christians scare them. Christians are the one group large enough to stop them, so they have to convince Christians, they can’t make a difference, they shouldn’t try to make a difference, it is against the Constitution to make a difference, and probably a few excuses I haven’t thought of.

I got an email from Dr. Pam Barlow. At first I didn’t pay much attention to it. I read the email and started looking into it and I like what she has to say, plus the fact that she has quite a bit of Tea Party support. I will support whoever wins the Republican Primary. I have been saying for a long time the primary is where you make the difference. I keep hearing from people that they are tired of “voting for the lesser of two evils”. I agree, so get out there and put the right candidate on the ballot in the primary and support them. I am quoting the email I received below. To check out other Districts in Texas Click Here.

“My fellow Constitutional Conservative, I sincerely need your help.

I am Dr. Pam Barlow, a Texas District 13 Candidate for the US House of Representatives in the 2014 Republican Primary.  I am also a private practice Veterinarian from Bowie, TX, a Retired Army Lieutenant Colonel, an Entrepreneur, a Small Business Owner, and a Job Creator.  I ran for the same position in the 2012 Primary, garnering 22% of the vote as a first time candidate.  I announced my 2014 run on 30 May 2012, the day after the 2012 Primary, and have been actively campaigning and gaining momentum toward 2014 throughout the District since that announcement.

Why should you consider me?  I am a Constitutional Conservative that swore an oath to our Constitution in 1976, and I will work diligently for a Constitutionally limited Federal Government.  With 31 years in the Army under my belt, I have a backbone and know how to lead.  If you like Ted Cruz in the Senate, you will love me in the House — and Ted needs all the reinforcements we can send him.

As a Constitutional Conservative Candidate, I have a much harder time fundraising for my Campaign because the big PACs have nothing they can buy from me.  I have run into this many times, but I am not discouraged.  In fact, I’m quite happy that I’m not for sale.  I think protecting and defending our Constitution — and actually governing by it — is far more important to voters in the long run than big dollar donors.

I will to go to Congress to make the tough choices, cut spending, balance the budget, and limit the Federal government to it’s Constitutional scope.  I have a conscience that won’t let me take what isn’t mine or waste what has been entrusted to me.  I understand that I will not be spending MY money, I will be spending YOUR hard-earned tax dollars.

I will stand face-to-face and toe-to-toe with the people who are trying to fundamentally change the government of this country into something we won’t recognize, and not only refuse to surrender one more inch of America, but push back as well.  I look forward to bringing my Leadership skills to the Republican Party in Washington.

Please help me get there to make the changes WE the People know we need — reduce the spending, balance the budget, decrease the Federal regulations that are stifling business and job creation, and pull the Federal Government back within its Constitutional limits.

The Senate Conservatives Fund has not endorsed anyone so far. They state “Iowa is on our 2014 Priority List because it presents conservatives with a potential pick-up opportunity. Incumbent Democratic Senator Tom Harkin is retiring and a strong conservative can win this open seat. President Obama only narrowly won Iowa in 2012 with 52% of the vote.”

The candidates running for the seat are David Young R , Joni Ernst R , Matt Whitaker R , Sam Clovis R Supports The Fair Tax. I think I would opt for Sam Clovis simply becasue he supports The Fair Tax.

The other day I said “Don’t get mad at the politicians, vote them out”. It’s difficult to not get mad at them when you realize all the things they do to us. I still say “VOTE THEM OUT“, they deserve to be voted out and “WE THE PEOPLE” deserve better than we have been getting.

The news is as bad or worse. The politicians lie and the news tells us the same story. I say, don’t get mad at the news, change the channel. They don’t deserve the ratings and we deserve the truth.

James Madison said

“On every question of construction, carry ourselves back to the time when the constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.”

Amendment I
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.

To me this says we have freedom OF religion, not freedom from religion. It is time Christian’s claim their Constitutional rights. Congress (the government) is forbidden by the 1st Amendment from either promoting one religion over another or stopping “We The People” from exercising our religion.

When Christian’s understand what is at stake (and I pray the time is now), they (Christian’s) will get out and vote. When we do this attack on The Constitution will end because the people who want to violate our God given rights will no longer be getting elected.

The 1st Amendment also says that we have a right to PEACEABLY assemble (the key word is peaceably, not riot or cause damage or trouble) and demand that our grievances are addressed. What we are seeing is a violation of that very right when anyone who tries to voice a view different than Progressives is targeted by the IRS so they can’t speak or express their concerns.

Christian’s it is time to Stand Up and Speak UP.

God Bless America

For the past few years I fell into the trap of being angry over what the politicians have been doing to us. They don’t care if we are angry, they want us fighting with each other over everything, when we do we are not thinking straight and we believe we can’t change anything. The truth is if we keep our heads about us and hold them to the same standards we hold ourselves to most of them would have already been voted out.

I forgive the politicians for their votes that go against the Constitution and Biblical Laws. Since the Constitution was written after the Founding Fathers prayed on it. The Bible and a firm belief in God was a very important factor in what they wrote.

Yes, I forgive them but that doesn’t mean I will support them or vote for them because even though I forgive them doesn’t mean I trust them. The job of judging them belongs to God not to me so I am content to let God judge. “Psa 75:7  But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.” My job as a Christian is to follow the Commandments God has given us, it is difficult to do that when our government is passing laws that go against the Will of God. For that reason I will not support or vote for any politician who promotes any legislation which goes against either the Constitution or God’s Word.

To Christians and anyone else who may be interested. Politicians are becoming so arrogant that they think they are above both Cival and Moral laws. They think that because people keep electing them. I blame “We The People”. They serve with our permission so we need to make it clear that they no longer have our permission to act in an illegal or immoral way.

The way to do that is to hold them accountable at the polls and “Vote Them Out” which would get most of them out. The time to do most of the work is in the Primary. We can’t wait for the General Election because if we do we have No Good Choice. It’s a shame things have come to this. Over the years the system has become so corrupt we can no longer trust in “the checks and balances” built into the system because they have been compromised by politicians in both major parties, I don’t trust either party and expect the Republican party to go the way of the Whig party unless they clean house themselves. I fear so many of them are corrupt, they won’t and it will be up to the people to do, which means we will have to really watch them, we can’t count on the news to tell us the truth (most carry water for one party or the other).

I personally feel that The Democratic Party has been taken over completely by Progressives and a big part of The Republican Party as well to the point where I refuse to give money to either party and I won’t vote for anyone based on which party they belong to. I look at how they vote, what their moral values are. Maybe it is just me but whenever I get a chance to ask them my question is going to be “Do you accept Jesus Christ  as your personal Savior?” Now that may not be your criteria for your vote and that is your decision but we all have to vet the candidates to find out if they will do the right thing.

There are many websites out there who watch the candidates. You have to vet those websites as well because most have an agenda also. Either they are for the Republicans or the Democrats. I urge you to pay attention and do your own homework. Those parties want you to just follow the party line and that is a mistake because neither are trustworthy, they both want more power and control over your life. I put my trust in God and pray that He will make a way to open the eyes of enough people to get back to the founding principles of America, which was inspired by God, When America turns back to God, America will be Blessed again which is why I said what my question to a candidate would be. At least if they are truly a Christian they have a conscience and a moral compass. Sure they can lie but the Bible says we will know them by their works.

Much information is compiled at http://www.votethemouttoday.com/state.html Now I admit that most of the ones supported are Republicans because if a mistake is made it is preferable to err on the side of the more Conservative candidate but those recommendations change from the Primary to the General election. After the primary a judgement call has to be made because not voting is not an option.

I have been thinking lately and a thought came to me that we as a people are playing into the enemies game plan. We get distracted by all the scandals and worry about what our own government is trying to do to us, well in many cases they are actually doing it. I believe that is the plan to keep us worried and off balance so we don’t keep our focus where it should be. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying to ignore what they are doing, I’m saying be aware, know what they are doing, write, email and call Washington but put your trust in God and pray that God’s Will be done. I was listening to Joyce Meyer and she made a statement that caught my attention, she said “Throughout history when things got bad enough God got His people out”. What that said to me was “Put your trust in God, pray for His protection”. When enough people come back to trusting God to take care of things and pray He will move and those politicians and people in the government will not be able to stand against what God has planned.
When we get our priorities straight, put out Faith where it should be “In God” and live our lives the way the Bible tells us to we will start holding politicians to those same standards. That is when things really start to change because we will no longer tolerate ungodly people as our representatives, we will register to vote and actually go vote, when Christians vote their morals and listen to that still little voice which I believe is The Holy Spirit, WE WIN.
