Final Debate 2008

I'll admit I didn't find Barack's performance all I wanted it to be in this the final presidential debate of 2008. McCain had said he was going to come out swinging, a fight was called and I wanted a little blood.

But Barack Obama rose above that.

He spoke to the people, defended at times, but mostly let the attack slide off him like water off the back of a duck, facing the people of the nation and saying "Look, here's my plan ..." as he calmly recited the details related to his ideas of helping the middle-class, investing in energy to boost the economy as well as solve our addiction to oil, and creating a health care plan that will cost less, benefit more, and benefit better.

I really wish he'd lose that "Look," that starts most of his statements, but he made sense. He specified differences with conviction and logic for his point, he denied the lies as they were spoken. He just didn't satisfy my blood lust.

There were so many opportunities to cut McCain. Easy openings. Invited openings, feints and jabs from McCain a little giddy, but Obama took it in stride. I wished for him to strike, gosh I wanted that. But no. Not tonight.

Barack chose to rise above the fray. I'm not sure it was the right call but I hope it was. The pundits in the two hours since the debate all call it for Obama, even Fox which surprises the .... well it surprises me alot.

If you want Barack Obama to be the next president, with Joe Biden by his side, talk to people, people. This vote is to worry about. This vote is still a vote to win. Be a part of the transformation.

Good vs. Evil? SSSHHHHHH!!!!!!
I am sick and tired of this worn out refrain from the left. Again and again they squeal that there are no longer any moral absolutes. I am always compelled to ask them if they are absolutely sure of that. You see, we are still a Judeo-Christian nation, although, on June 28, 2006 Barack Obama stated that the U.S.A. is no longer a Christian nation. Hmmmm….. Why is no one reporting this? I believe that even the most conservative talking heads are caught in the stranglehold of political correctness. Drawing a line in the sand and saying that they are intolerant of its being crossed would be a clarion call to the liberal pundits to feast on their flesh. MSNBC, The Daily Kos, The New York Times and the like would circle the wagons to cry bigotry and fascism. The sheeople of America that actually consider the likes of Ben Aflec to be intellectual would immediately and mechanically begin Baaahing the same sentiments. We have all seen it before. Why are we still calling ourselves the moral majority when we act like a battered, squeamish, silent minority? Why do we yell at the TV screen and ask what this country is coming to without raising a cry in the public square?! If the moral decline of this country continues at the hands of liberal leaders and reporters, it is our own fault. The iron clad claws of the demon spirit named complacency are resolutely embedded in the nicely shingled roofs of our churches and homes. Do we really want to pass a liberal; anything goes culture on to our children? Christians wake up! It is our responsibility to impose the truth upon this nation. I have been silent long enough. Where I see righteousness, I will report it. Where I see evil, I will report it. Is this not a simple enough plan for all of us? If you are reading this, dear Christian brother or sister, you have the technology to make a difference. Send an e-mail to a movie producer demanding that morality no longer should be portrayed as archaic and odd. Send an e-mail to your representatives boldly declaring that you are opposed to abortion. Get involved today! I repent that I have been all that I have exposed. I have been a complacent Christian. Here is my first Good vs. evil elucidation. I am sure that it won’t end up on CNN unless they decide to attack me for my frankness. Since it will not be reported objectively in the mainstream media, it will be up to you to forward this blog to your entire Christian friends & family network entertaining the thought of not voting, or worse yet giving their vote to Barack Hussein Obama.
Barack Hussein Obama has voted to deny medical care to a BABY that survives a botched abortion.
Psalms 127:3 States: Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
I state emphatically and without apology that willfully allowing God’s innocent reward to die is EVIL!
As I said earlier, on June 28, 2006 Barack Obama declared that the U.S.A. is no longer a Christian nation.
Proverbs 29:2 Says: When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.
What righteousness can be found in a man that denies the Christianity of this great nation. To make this statement is EVIL!
Now I will quote from a tremendous book, “Power to Get Wealth”, written by John P. Kelly & Paul Costa.
The conflict for world domination began in the Garden of Eden when God told Adam and Eve to subdue the earth. Emphasis on the Garden is important because it has much to do with current world events. The scriptures give us its exact location.
Genesis 2:10-14
10. And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
11. The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
12. And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.
13. And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
14. And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
From this description, the Garden is believed to be in what is now the country of Iraq. God said to Adam and Eve to subdue it; but that didn’t happen. They fell into the first sin and were prevented from eating of the Tree of Life. Death in the region has ruled ever since.
When the decision was made by President Bush to enter Iraq and overthrow the Evil Saddam Hussein, the original area that once was the Garden of Eden fell back into a tug-of-war between good and evil. Under Saddam’s regime, evil reigned under the direct influence of the Prince of Persia. Subduing that evil is the task of the Armed Forces, and the plan is to establish a democratic society so the people of Iraq are free to choose their own destiny.
The Obama Bin Biden ticket wishes to withdraw from Iraq, waving the white flag of surrender. Not even once in his campaign for the presidency has Barack Hussein Obama used the word Victory in regards to conditions for leaving that land to the Iraqis. Folks, if we leave this hot potato half baked, it is a prescription for failure. If our troops leave without establishing a strong democratic Iraq, terror will immediately overwhelm the fledgling Christian churches beginning to flourish there. Pulling the lever for Obama puts those brothers and sisters blood on your hands! Yes leaving them now to fend for themselves is undeniably an act of absolute EVIL! Consider this as well. If we leave Iraq to become overrun by terrorists supportive of Iran, Iraq becomes a welcome mat for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's threatened eradication of Israel. When these things happen, how will you sleep at night knowing that you did not vote against Barack Hussein Obama.

I'll be brief here, if possible.

This comment comes from the very sort of mindset that I am speaking against.

The idea the morality can be legislated is false. It didn't work when it was God's law and it sure doesn't work with mans' law.

I liken the idea of legislating morality to the parents who bring their kids to church to learn some good morals. They ignore the faith side of it. Morals are the fruit of faith. It has to be personal, a decision to do better, to be better. Even at that, it has to be Holy Spirit driven. We are weak, broken, and sinful by nature. Only the Holy Spirit, not law, can change that.

Spread faith rather than hate. Spread hope rather than fear. Spread love, even for those that your think wrong, rather than ending the discussion because you can't see their side of it.

Matthew 7:3
"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?"

One more thought -

The Moral Majority was neither.

It was the likes of Falwell, Dobson, et al, that inspired to rise up, in faith, against their kind.
