The choice every American faces every election

Since the birth of this country that was originated by great, self-sacrficing, Christian, knowledgable and wise men that were the founders of our country, the people of this great country have always been involved in a struggle of wills and external forces from across the oceans and within.  Over the course of our nation’s history until now there has been a general dilution and subsequent breakdown in the character and trust among ourselves to preserve the individual freedoms that have been graciously been given us from above.

Since President Obama and congressional Democrats came into power in 2006 and 2008, there has been a mask to reveal what this faction of ruling masters public servants represent.  They have rolled up massive debt upon the people and future generations of Americans.  This has come in the form of Obamacare, stimulus packages and a host of appropriation bills that have left budget deficits that are shocking to the shrewd eye.  Is there historical precedence of a few people who lead a country impoverishing a nation as these in Washington have been doing for years?  The answer to that is yes and it is found in nowhere else in the Bible.  The following section of Scripture is quoted in which a friend pointed out to me today.

Genesis 47:13-26

Gen 47:13  And there was no bread in all the land; for the famine was very sore, so that the land of Egypt and all the land of Canaan fainted by reason of the famine.
Gen 47:14  And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which they bought: and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh’s house.
Gen 47:15  And when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, Give us bread: for why should we die in thy presence? for the money faileth.
Gen 47:16  And Joseph said, Give your cattle; and I will give you for your cattle, if money fail.
Gen 47:17  And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for horses, and for the flocks, and for the cattle of the herds, and for the asses: and he fed them with bread for all their cattle for that year.  (Wow, now that is a monstrous tax!)
Gen 47:18  When that year was ended, they came unto him the second year, and said unto him, We will not hide it from my lord, how that our money is spent; my lord also hath our herds of cattle; there is not ought left in the sight of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands:
Gen 47:19  Wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die, that the land be not desolate.
Gen 47:20  And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over them: so the land became Pharaoh’s.
Gen 47:21  And as for the people, he removed them to cities from one end of the borders of Egypt even to the other end thereof.
Gen 47:22  Only the land of the priests bought he not; for the priests had a portion assigned them of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which Pharaoh gave them: wherefore they sold not their lands.
Gen 47:23  Then Joseph said unto the people, Behold, I have bought you this day and your land for Pharaoh: lo, here is seed for you, and ye shall sow the land.
Gen 47:24  And it shall come to pass in the increase, that ye shall give the fifth part unto Pharaoh, and four parts shall be your own, for seed of the field, and for your food, and for them of your households, and for food for your little ones.
Gen 47:25  And they said, Thou hast saved our lives: let us find grace in the sight of my lord, and we will be Pharaoh’s servants.
Gen 47:26  And Joseph made it a law over the land of Egypt unto this day, that Pharaoh should have the fifth part; except the land of the priests only, which became not Pharaoh’s.

See the eerie parallels here between what happened then and what happened now?  From Rahm Emanuel saying “Never let a crisis go to waste.” to congressional Democrats and President Obama running up massive debt and depreciating our dollar to abominable levels.  The stimulus legislation, cash for clunkers, the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, GM and Chrysler bailouts all at the expense of the taxpayer.  Who always wins big in the end?  The government of course.  Why do you think Chuck Schumer and Rahm Emanuel were grinning ear to ear when the crash of 2008 happened in mid-September?  History repeated itself.  People stopped trusting each other and trusted the government.  The free market always weeds out those who pay terrible wages because the people talk about it.  That’s why the minimum wage is unnecessary.  The free market always weeds out corrupt corporate officers because the people tell others about it.  An entrepreneur’s most important asset isn’t the money in their bank or the product or service they provide, it is their reputation and their ability to do good, make wrongs right, be determined to work hard, and to service their customers as best they can that determines whether they succeed or not.

Righteousness exalts a nation, but a sin is a disgrace to many people.  -Proverbs 14:34

The sole end of racking up this debt is not to provide relief to the people.  There is a much darker purpose which I will explain in a bit.  See how the people in Egypt back then were full of gratitude to the government for saving them but had forfeited all of their property to the government.  This is probably what the Democrats thought would happen as a result of passing Obamacare and what they have said recently about the people not giving them credit.  In the end the people of Egypt were renters of property having to give one-fifth of their profits to the government yearly.  Is this what you want?  This is the future of America if we continue down this path and elect congressmen from both parties who continue to try to bring the people to depend on the government and not on themselves or God. As the classic proverb reads:

The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.  -Proverbs 22:7

The Democratic Party of today and their purpose is always fighting to bring the people into servitude (some might say slavery) to the government and a few, prominent people/corporate entities whom are sympathetic to their cause such as General Electric whom would love to have cap-and-trade legislation pass.  Debt is just another tool that the Democratic Party uses to make people ultimately in the end depend on the government. All they have are insults and criticism of true conservatives whom believe that you are responsible for yourself and whom believe that the government’s purpose to the people of this country is to SERVE THE PEOPLE and PROTECT OUR FREEDOMS.  They are puppet masters who play on the strings of a person’s emotions such as anger, discontent, fear, empathy, sympathy, disappointment with their own situation in life and creating envy and angst against others whose grass may be greener under their tent.  This is how they create their voting blocs.  It is in the hope of government and being servants to the government that the Democratic people sells people to vote for them.  It is in the despair and discontent in one’s life that they play on to bring another voter into their voting bloc.  The Democratic Party today is a party of misery, despair, and ultimately destructive of our Constitution.  Did you notice in the “health care summit” that whenever a Democratic congressmen spoke, it always contained a sad story?  This is a favorite tactic of theirs and they have used it for ages.  You know, I wonder when was the last time someone asked one of these congressmen on the left side of the aisle “What have YOU done for them?”  I am speaking of what have they solely as an individual, belly-to-belly with a downtrodden soul, not as a politician trying to make others do what they think is socially just through legislation.  Judging by someone like Joe Biden’s charitable giving on his tax returns, not a whole lot.  It is up to each American individual and they have the choice whether or not help those who may be in need or are down in life and the government has no say in this and should not have.   Otherwise, it is another freedom that is taken away.  I trust ordinary America entrepreneurs who make it big, the private sector, far more than I trust politicians in Washington.  After all, these entrepreneurs don’t take away our freedoms like politicians in Washington do.  As I stated in a previous diary entry:

Whenever there is an economic downturn that is a result of corruption in the free market, the GOP suffers in elections and people turn to Democrats to fix the problem.  This is what brought Franklin Delano Roosevelt to power.  It is what brought Barack Obama to power.  This is the paradox that this nation has always faced.  History has taught us is if individual Americans stop doing right by each other from the corporate owners and officers, to the small business owner, down to the lone American individual, when equal justice for all becomes diluted, more of our freedoms are taken away by corrupt and elitist politicians in the form of legislative law who wish to rule nowadays rather than serve.

It is in those situations where we stopped trusting each other and started trusting government instead when our freedoms were taken away.  It is in these situations where GOP politicians abandoned their principles in the vain attempt to hold onto their majorities in 2006 and the presidency in 2008.  I missed the most important factor in that diary entry, the Lord forgive me.  Above all, it is when we only rely on ourselves rather on ourselves AND the One and His Son who graciously bestowed on us these freedoms that this nation has taken for granted.  Ronald Reagan in his famous 1981 interview with Barbara Walters sums it up nicely.  Ultimately, this country’s future depends on the character, virtue, and effort of the people to do good unto each other.  Its future ultimately dies when a government in Washington brings the people into bondage through legislation and politicians’ convictions are always for sale to the highest bidding lobbyist. The country’s future depends on GOP congressional public servants, who stick to their principles regardless of the storm the media and Democrats may stir up in a time of crisis, who don’t care if they lose their governing majority in Congress so long as they stick to their core beliefs.

DO YOUR DUTY.  BE THE WAVE.  VOTE ON NOVEMBER 2nd.
