I’m probably one of the biggest "Andy Griffith Show" fans that ever lived! The good news is, there are honest people out there, like the character of Aunt Bee. Though they're becoming harder to find, there are still people out there that are willing to change their minds...if the evidence is compelling enough; and if they're open to truth. (That one is extremely important. If they don't care about truth... you're wasting your breath.)
In a nutshell, if you’re a liberal, why all the centrist posing? Embrace your progressive ideology. Shout it from the rooftops. Moderates and opportunists of either party are insidious threats to liberty, as they are too hard to predict.
What is REAL and REALITY today in American politics? Well... that a good question, but in all honesty who will really hear ETERNAL REALITY?? The common denominator however across the American political spectrum is the rejection of Almighty God's Heavenly summons to repent and to be saved. Will the Left hear Almighty God's Heavenly summons? NO... not at all. Will the Moderates hear?? No... they will not! They are confusion themselves. Will the conservatives hear? Tragically, the majority of them will not.
This is an apt picture of how your elected 'representatives' represent you in Washington. And since it's become painfully clear that few Republicans care about principle and those they represent any better than Democrats, this is probably how your "Republican" representative represents you, too.
A recent Gallup poll indicates record support for a third party in the United States. I still don't believe a third party is the best answer right now. It would almost certainly take too long for even a new conservative party to get up to speed and making electoral victories; in the meantime, any remaining hope of turning around our once-great nation will probably evaporate. But obviously the American people are getting impatient with the current pathetic state of affairs.
Have you ever noticed how the only time liberals are even remotely interested in Jesus is when they distort his teachings to excuse their Godless socialism? Liberals are good at revising history, and the ignorance of many Americans helps them get away with it. Christians who consider themselves too spiritual to get involved in the political arena help them even more; they forfeit the arena to the opposition without a fight.
What builds a political party: inclusion or principle? It is true that there must be at least some measure of both, but one is far more important than the other. What really builds up a party: compromise and an "anything goes" attitude, or a display of conviction and determination in the party's values and goals?
How can America continue to exist politically as a republic with a constitutionally limited government dedicated to personal liberty, economic freedom and individual opportunity if our central government destroys competition?
After more than thirty years in the political world as a lobbyist, House leadership staffer, anonymous administration source and communications professional, people often ask if anything still surprises me. The answer is yes.
At present in America, a great battle and political war of ideologies is raging for the heart and soul of this nation. With their lawlessness moral relativity and socialistic, big-government/ nanny-state ideology, the Left says, "We are right!" With their compromise of core values and lack of rooted principles, the Moderates say, “We are right!" With their morally conservative principles and small-government philosophy, the Right says, "We are right!"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
