We need a Change...

Considering "Hope and Change have failed, we need to find our next President from those running against Mr Obama. Even liberal commentators, such as Maureen Dowd are turning against the President as they recognize his lack of ability...

We certainly need to move to the right, but is this the change we want?

Real estate mogul Donald Trump remains the front-runner in the Republican presidential field, while former neurosurgeon Ben Carson holds a close second place, a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows.

With the backing of 25 percent of Republican primary voters, Trump is at his highest level of support in the poll since entering the 2016 race. Carson now gets the support of 22 percent of Republican voters, remaining within the margin of error of his first-place rival. Last month, 21 percent of GOP primary voters said Trump was their first choice for the party's nomination, while 20 percent picked Carson. Marco Rubio is third with 13 percent.

I agree, but who?

Romney was at Georgetown, telling students about an 1814 letter John Adams wrote to the political philosopher John Taylor. “Remember,” the nation’s second president wrote, “democracy never last long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”

Ours hasn’t — yet. “We’ve beaten the odds,” Romney said, “in part because we’ve had, I think, people of real character who have led our country as presidents .?.?. and the American people have risen to the occasion time and again and have in fact then elected good people.”

Yet the last President has damaged our country and can we find that person to correct our course? We need a change!

Yes we need a change because, I believe, for what it's worth, that it's not so much about conservative verses moderate or even liberal/progressive but an anxiousness caused by a government that has grown way too big. The Federal Government is not focusing on our protection as it was intended and Constitutionally defined but way too much more. No group aside from a communist form of government can control anything this large...and of course that form (communism) abdicates our freedom.

Those running as a democrat are promoting way more government...are we really that foolish?

If we are truly not foolish, which Republican can actually hand things off to the States and who will bring the government down to size and working as it should? That must be the choice we make...it must be!

We need to regain our moral compass...

Washington (CNN)—Two days before Pope Francis delivers an historic speech to Congress, Senate Republican leaders Tuesday pressed for passage of a bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy but were blocked by Democrats, who strongly oppose the measure.

Needing 60 votes to advance, the bill failed 54 to 42.

The vote coincided with the arrival this week of the head of the Catholic Church, an entity that is a leading force against abortions. It also came amidst a broader debate on Capitol Hill about whether to strip federal funding for Planned Parenthood, something Republicans are anxious to do and Democrats are against.

WE must stop this killing unborn babies and the selling of baby parts...we must!

We need to change what we watch and support!

Sony's Christian film, "War Room" fought its way to first place in its second weekend in release, earning $12.6 million across the four-day holiday weekend, according to Rentrak estimates on Monday. The micro-budget family drama, which cost only $3.5 million to produce, has grossed $27.9 million to date.

I remember that day like it was yesterday...maybe I'm to be the one who never forgets that...

On September 11 2001, 351 firefighters and EMTs and 60 police officers lost their lives trying to rescue victims of the World Trade Center attack. In all 2974 innocent people lost their lives.

I wonder what will be printed in a little more than two weeks...will it be politically correct?

I wonder!

Is he the change we need?

NY TIMES:

COLUMBUS, Ohio — As the people of Ohio already know — and Republican voters elsewhere are just beginning to find out — Gov. John R. Kasich grew up in working-class McKees Rocks, Pa., the son of a postal worker and the grandson of a coal miner. His grandfather was so poor, Mr. Kasich recently told voters in New Hampshire, that he would bring home scraps of his lunch to share with his children.

“They would even be able to taste the coal mine in that lunch,” Mr. Kasich said. “Some of you can relate to that.”

As a congressman and as governor, Mr. Kasich has made hardscrabble stories of life in McKees Rocks a cornerstone of his political biography.

We must change because...

Whether you like it or not, Illegal immigration and open borders have made voters increasingly angry because they reflect the growing lawlessness of society and the willingness of Republicans to capitulate to leftist identity politics. The sense that we are losing control of our own country, by the design of politicians, is creating a fury — and an opening for a politician willing to recognize that the problem poses an existential threat to our own freedoms. If Republicans consider Trump a danger to the Republican party in the 2016 general election, then they should start by feeling the people’s pain over illegal immigration, standing with the victims, and looking in the mirror — not at Donald Trump.

What is happening right now with the Planned Parenthood videos is a “William Wilberforce moment” in our culture. Wilberforce was the Christian man who looked into his Bible, saw that racism and slavery were evil reverse-images of the gospel, and dedicated his life to accomplishing what seemed culturally and politically impossible in late-1700’s Great Britain: the abolition of the slave trade. In a decisive moment that now lives in history, Wilberforce once commanded the floor of British Parliament for over three hours doing nothing but reading gruesome horror-stories of the African slave trade to the men that politically protected its continuation and then concluded with this sentence…

“ “You may choose to look away, but you can never say again that you did not know.”

– William Wilberforce

Let Them Debate!

It will be easy this year to identify the biggest losers in the GOP debates. They will be the candidates who aren’t on the stage.

With a record 17 candidates vying for the GOP nomination (so far), no system for determining admission to the debate stage will please everyone. But the GOP can certainly do better than the statistically unsound procedures announced by Fox and CNN. These rules will senselessly reward candidates like reality-TV star Donald Trump & punish serious, viable ones like Ohio Gov. Kasich.

To qualify for Fox’s August debate & CNN’s Sept. one, recent national polls must rank a Republican candidate in the top 10. Those who fail to make the cut will attend separate debates which will have a fraction of the viewership and a fraction of the potential payoff.

As polling experts of all ideological stripes have pointed out, the margin of error in surveys is so large that it is statistically impossible to determine the real top 10.

Amos 5:13, seems a perfect fit for the times we live in. "Therefore, the prudent man keeps quiet in such times, for the times are evil, because a man may then be made an offender for a word." Choose your words with care, and carefully speak them. Make certain that whatever you say is prayerfully-covered and spoken with God's love. Believers, our battles, and they are many, are not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, the authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the dark places" (Ephesians 6:12). Sometimes we are not called to argue, but to intercede.

Those who choose not to vote in elections and believe it absolves them of any responsibility for the outcome ignore in doing so the fact that the power of their vote is simply transferred to the others who do. Just as in so many other things in life, silence can grant equal consent...

Thought for the day: If you've lived a life that only Jesus could redeem, then why turn away from the only one who can?

Why?

Please, we need a change...

Oddly enough even cities, states, and Presidents must obey laws, which is why there should be an end to the so-called “sanctuary city’’ status of San Francisco and other liberal meccas. The awful, awful story of the murder of a young San Franciscan woman, out on the pier for a stroll with her dad, is bringing to light some of the absurd and unlawful practices this nation has and is allowing regarding illegal immigrants.

Only a federal court order is preventing Barack Obama from breaking the law and declaring legal even more illegals.

The mayor and council in San Francisco are complicit in the woman’s murder. Why? Because of their policy of not cooperating with federal law enforcement, or anyone else, when an illegal immigrant, including those with prior criminal convictions, is found in their midst.

Agree?

Ravi Zacharias:

"America may not be a Christian nation per se, but only the Judeo-Christian worldview could have framed such a nation's ideas and values: "All men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights." No other religion or secular assumption can affirm such a statement except the Judeo-Christian worldview. But today that very worldview, on which our systems of government and law are based, is expelled from the marketplace.

Democracies that are unhinged from all sacred moorings ultimately sink under the brute weight of conflicting egos. Freedom is destroyed not only by its retraction; it is also devastated by its abuse."

President Barack Obama wanted Congress to pass a variety of trade-related proposals, and he didn’t want to have to rely on Republican votes in order to see that happen. He lobbied his fellow Democrats in favor of trade, and he lobbied them hard. In the end, it wasn’t enough. On Friday, the president endured a stern censure from the very member of the party for whom he once served as a savior. Barack Obama’s presidency is all but over. It’s Hillary Clinton’s party now, but she does not seem inclined to lead it so much as to emerge as its supervisor by default and through a process of attrition. She is not in a hurry to rush that process, and there is no alternative Democratic leader waiting in the wings. Inadvertently, what House Democrats did on Friday was to decapitate their own party.
