It is no accident that rhetoric about race has been ramping up at a time when racial politics can be the key determinant for control of the Senate this year. Can racism really be as rampant in America as all the current rhetoric implies?
Scripture tells us, “He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked” (1 John 2:6). Clearly, some people are not walking their talk. The famous preacher Billy Sunday stated, “Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes you an automobile.” Oh how right he was.
How is it that Obama’s climate change/global warming tiffs always take place decades from now? Amazing when one compares our nightly weather flubs for the next day. Now, couple that with his present day efforts to make sex as carefree and cost effective as possible. There you have a sampling of his pressing agenda. Combined with homosexual equality, lowered tuition costs and equal pay for women, other than those working in his administration, one can readily see that here is a “take charge,” “leave no stone unturned,” “the buck stops here” type of chief executive.
The 50th anniversary of Barry Goldwater's clarion call for liberty acceptance speech for the Republican nomination passed this week. In a modern world where politicians talk, but their words are hollow, listening to Goldwater's message a half a century later is like a drink of fresh water.

As is too often the case these days, if you want to learn anything about what is really going on in the United States, you have to look to sources other than the "mainstream" media in America. In addition to having to look to "new media" source, sometimes it takes a look outside the United States altogether.
While immigrants of previous generations worked hard to become inculcated as Americans, an opposite trend has developed. The number of illegal immigrants (people who simply walk across the border) has become so great, no one really knows how many there are. Those who come from Spanish-speaking nations aren’t as motivated as their legal predecessors to learn the English language, obey American laws or “melt” into our American culture.« Previous Page — Next Page »
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
