    Are you a Believer?

     

     The U.S. Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land

     

     America was never a Secular (Non-Creator values) Nation!   America was founded by Believers in a Supreme Creator!

     

    “WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator”undefined                                          (Declaration of Independence)

     

           Did you catch that?           All men are created equal ------ endowed by their Creator”--- (Declaration of Independence)

     

    America was never a Secular Nation!   America was founded based upon our Creator.

     

    Why are Liberals lying to us?     

     

    From the beginning of this Nation there have always been Non-believers that wanted to destroy our Constitution.

     

    Our Constitution was based on God’s Commandments and Laws.

     

    For Non-believers to Destroy our Constitution, Non-believers had to remove God from our Nation!

     

    When Darwin came along, Non-believers jumped on this false theory to do away with God in our Constitution.

     

    Thus the Evil False Religion of evolution was born.

     

    With this Evil False Religion Non-believers around the world began to –ridicule-- any belief in God.

     

    As more and more Intellectuals and Elitists jumped on the evolution bandwagon it became easier and easier to ridicule anyone they claimed was Ignorant enough to believe in a Supreme Creator.

     

    It then became possible for Liberals to remove God from our schools and force the Evil False Religion of evolution to be taught to our Kids to support the Liberal’s Evil Anti-God agendas.

     

    As the years have gone by the Liberal Intellectuals and Elitists forced God completely out of the schools.  Next they forced God out of the Courthouses and then the Statehouses and now are hoping to totally force God out of America.

     

     Liberals now have enough Power to force this Great Lie on this Nation and around the world, thus committing Treason against our Nation.

     

    Our Liberal politicians are lying constantly, even now telling us that America is a Secular (Non-Creator values) country and was never a Christian Nation.      LiesundefinedLies--Lies!!!

     

    Without God there are no Absolutes.  With no Absolutes the Constitution can be destroyed by these Liberals to suit their Evil agenda.

     

    It has now reached the point that anyone including Our Kids in school are now –ridiculed-- if they believe in God.

     

    Intellectuals and Elitists that believe in evolution, consider themselves Superior over the masses of people.   They believe they are much more Intelligent than other people, but they are Foolish enough to believe they came from a Monkey or some other such nonsense.    These Liberals want to rule over us, making us their Socialist Slaves!  

     

    The visual image of the Intellectual Elite from the Very Finest Universities and Washington DC swinging thru the trees saying Monkey see, Monkey do would be very funny, if it wasn’t so serious. These Liberal Monkeys actually believe that they are Smarter than Common Taxpayers, that pay their Salaries. They should be working for us, not against us!

     

    Monkey see, Monkey do, Liberal Monkeys doing what seems right in their own eyes, not God’s eyes.

     

    God says have no other Gods before me.   How can anyone call themselves a Believer, that believes in the False God of evolution and force our Kids to be taught in school that they came from Monkeys?   

     

    God says Honor Father and Mother.    Liberals say your parents are ignorant to believe in a Creator; they claim to have all the scientific proof we evolved from Monkeys or some other such nonsense.

     

    Our Creator God says do not Lie.       The False Religion of evolution says we evolved from a Monkey.     How much bigger Lie can we get than this Lie?   Liberals believe in the Created and Deny the Creator!    

     

      “WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator”undefined                                          (Declaration of Independence)

          Did you catch that?       It does not say, Endowed by a Created Monkey!

     

    “WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal. (Declaration of Independence)

                                       

                                         --Liberals believe Unborn babies aren’t created equal, ------not even Human.---                                          

     

    The Liberal platformDeceives-- a woman into believing she has the right to Murder her own Unborn Baby and have the right to get a certified Doctor to assist in the Murder of the Un-Born baby!

     

    God says do not Kill, but what have the Liberals done?    Liberals have Killed (Murdered) 48 million Babies by Abortions.

     

    How can anyone call themselves a Believer in a Creator, go to church on Sunday, then on Tuesday pull the Lever and vote for the Anti-God Liberal platform that has Deceived many Americans into Murdering their own Unborn Babies?

     

    What has gone wrong with our Great Nation?

     

    Anti-God Liberal Legislatures have passed Unconstitutional Legislative acts and called them laws, which has turned this Nation upside down.  What used to be Right is Wrong and what was Wrong is now Right.  The Liberals are now doing what seems Right in their own eyes and not in God’s eyes!  

     

    We the People are going to have to decide if this Nation is built on Godly Principles and if so, we must remove all un-Godly laws.  Our Founding Fathers would never have dreamed, much less approved the Murdering of our Babies!

     

    God cannot bless us when we do all these wrong things.    We must change before it is too late!

     

    Liberal Legislatures that have passed ungodly laws that are Unconstitutional are Destroying America.  Unconstitutional laws and everyone who supports them is a Domestic Enemy.

     

    Our Great Nation cannot stay Great without God’s continuing Blessings.   God cannot bless Evilness!

     

    Are You a Believer?

     

    What are you going to do about these Evil Liberals who have infected our Schools and Government?

     

    Everyone makes Poor choices sometime in their Life, but a person of Good Will is going to be willing to do the Right thing, when it is brought to their attention that they have made a Poor choice.

     

    We the People are asking everyone to do the Right thing and be willing to Protect and Restore Our Constitutional Freedoms, Rights and Liberties.

    -- Now is the Time--

     

     To Support the Constitution and Remove All Domestic Enemies.

     

    Liberals that would destroy our Constitution to suit their agenda are Domestic Enemies!

     

    We must vote all Liberals out of office!

     

    --We cannot afford to Lose any more Freedoms!

     

    --By Our Failure to take Positive action, We shall be just as Guilty as those taking Our Freedoms away from us.--

    Theory of evolution?

     

     Ever stop and ask yourself why it is called the theory of evolution and not the facts of evolution?

     

    Maybe I can share something most folks do not know about, which may be of interest to you.

     

    My background has made me privy to things many folks have absolutely no idea about concerning Nature and mankind.

     

    One part of this involves Electro-magnetic Energy Frequencies, which each Species of animals and plants are part of a Specific Major Frequency and when the Frequency changes there is a Different Species.

     

    These frequencies can be measured and have been by a few privy scientists.

     

    Of course you cannot find this interesting measuring device at the local Monkey shop.

     

    Within each Species there is what we may call Micro-frequencies, which are what allow for the adaptation to the varied environmental conditions a Species may find it's self in giving rise to different colors, shapes etc, but the Species stays the same.

     

     Example: Cows, we have Jersey cows, Holstein cows, Angus cows, etc, but they are still cows.

     

    It is same for the monkey family, all Monkeys.

     

     It is the same for the Bird family, Cat family, dog family etc.

     

     The Human family is a Specific family of people and by Nature can never evolve from any other Species family Naturally.

     

    This means the idea of Natural Mutation is Impossible for one Specific Species to produce another Species. Who has ever seen a Cat give birth to a Dog, or a Fish to a Bird?

     

    Evolution is just a False theory of Religion that Liberals worship!  Did the Liberals have you Fooled into believing they had Separation between Religion and State or Government?

     

    In Fact Evolution is one of the Biggest Lies the Liberals are Brainwashing our Kids with in the National schools of America.

     

    And the Liberal Monkeys think they have it all figured out?

     

    Monkey see, monkey do, did the Liberals make a Monkey outta you too?

     

    This might be one of the Biggest Nut jobs the Liberals in Washington DC have pulled off?

     

    For the Liberals to Destroy our Constitution, they have to remove our Creator from our Schools and Government. Without the Creator the Constitution is Null and Void!

     

    What better way than to Fool as many Kids and Parents with the Biggest Lie in History, called the Theory of evolution.    --Brainwash our Kids--

     

    We even have Liberal Monkey Nuts in Washington DC who want to call the Constitution a Living Constitution, so they can change it to suit their Liberal Socialist agenda.

     

    Don’t you want to be one of their Socialists Monkey Nuts only getting to eat the Rotten Nuts they decide to throw you?

     

    Have a Good Day!

    --Selection of School Superintendent’s--

     

    Why does the school board ask Parents to attend hearings pertaining to selection of Superintendent’s? Does it make any difference what the parent’s want?

     

     Isn’t the school board supposed to do what the parents want?   Are they doing it?

     

    Who is running the schools, the Superintendent or the Parents?

     

    Who is running the schools, the School Board or the Parents? 

     

    Who is running the schools, the State or the Parents?

     

    Who is running the schools, the National Government or the Parents?

     

    Who is running the schools? ------The Liberals and the Unions in Washington D.C.------

     

    Since the Liberals in Washington DC have taken over all the schools in America, do they have a Political agenda?

     

    If they have a Political Agenda, then what is it?

     

    The Liberals agenda is to kick God out of our Schools and our Nation by teaching the Evil False Religion of Evolution!

     

     Liberals are now teaching our Kids they come from Monkeys or some other such Nonsense.

     

     Do you want your Kids taught this Lie?

     

    It is the Liberals agenda to –Lie-- and say that the Founding Fathers were all Anti-God.

     

    What do these Liberal’s want?  They want to destroy our Constitution and the very Foundation our Nation was built upon.    ----They want to fundamentally change America.-----

     

    ---Questions for our school board’s and persons seeking the superintendent position:---

     

    Do you believe in and Support and Defend the United States Constitution and all it stands for?

    Yes____ No___

     

    Will you fully support Freedoms of Speech and Press in our Schools?

    Yes____  No___

     

    Do you believe our Nation was founded based on our Creator? (Declaration of Independence) Yes__  No__

     

     

    Will you see to it that a program is instituted to again start teaching our Kids the Purpose of our Constitution, that it’s sole purpose is to Limit Government from taking away our Freedoms, Rights, and Liberties?

    Yes______  No______

     

    Do you think it is ok to teach evolution in our schools to our Kids?  Yes___  No___

     

    Are you willing to take this Constitutional Oath and Honor it:

     

    5 USC § 3331  Oath of office: An individual, except the President, elected or appointed to an office of honor or profit in the civil service or uniformed services, shall take the following oath:

     

     “I, --------------------, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.” This section does not affect other oaths required by law.

     

    Yes_____ No______

     

    Please sign your name to verify your answers______________________________ Date ___________

     

    Do we have any school board member’s willing to be first and stand up and do the right thing? Where is your signature?

     

    Why would any school board member or person seeking to fill the position of superintendent refuse to sign this questionnaire?

     

    Could it be because they are Liberal’s who have rejected our Creator and replace him with evolution?

     

    Could it be that they have become Domestic Enemies without even knowing it and are destroying our Constitution and America from within by not being willing to stand up and do the right thing? 

     

    Could it be they have become deceived by the Power they have to control parents and kids and do not realize the Harm they are doing to America?

     

    It is time to bring back control of our schools to the Parents at the Local level.

     

    It is time to hold our school board members accountable for business as usual.

     

    It is time school board members’s work for us, by bringing back local control for all schools in America.

     

    It is time for our school board member’s to realize they are part of the problem when they vote to allow business as usual. It is time for each school board member to take back the control of our schools from Washington DC to local control.

     

    Each Parent and American citizen has to take our schools back from National control. We cannot allow our Kids to continue to be taught to become Socialists.

     

    Parents Rise up, don’t take No for an answer.  We must take back our schools from the Liberal National Control and place it back into the hands of parents at the Local level. Parents our Kids are ours, they do not belong to the Government. This is not just a need, this is a Must!  We Absolutely must do it now, not tomorrow, to Save our Constitutional Republic!

     

    ---Liberals want to fundamentally change America by Destroying our Constitution!----

    America is being blessed again

     

    Believers are starting to stand up for their Creator.

     

     

    The U.S. Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land

     

    WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their ---Creator----, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness --The Declaration of Independenceundefined

     

    -----Notice it states endowed by their ----Creator!-----

     

     

    From the beginning America was blessed with a Great Abundance of Natural resources.

     

    America was blessed with rain in due season and the land yielded her increase, and the trees of the field yielded their fruit. We were able to dwell in our land safely with full stomachs and happy families. Life was good.

     

    Clean water to drink, swimming and fishing to enjoy and all kinds of recreation.

     

    Timber to build our houses.

     

     Minerals to mine to supply our factories that employed many people.

     

    Land to grow food to feed our families.

     

    A Wife and Husband with Children to grow and bless our families with and Grandparents to enjoy in old age.

     

    People found Life, Liberty and Happiness in America.

     

    Everyone wanted to move to America and get a piece of the action and have the chance to raise a Family and enjoy life.

     

     America was blessed because ---enough--- people had Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness and Temperance towards each other.

     

    The above are the Fruits of the Spirit from our Creator.

     

    What happens when we reject these Fruits of the Spirit and kick our Creator out of our Schools and Government and turn to the Works of the Flesh: Adultery, Fornication, Uncleanness, Lasciviousness, Idolatry, Witchcraft, Hatred, Variance, Emulations, Wrath, Strife, Seditions, Heresies, Envyings, Murders, Drunkenness, Revellings, and such?

     

    How can we ask our Creator to bless us when ---too many--- of the people of America have lived by the Works of the Flesh?

     

    Are we not told we shall surely receive cursing for these Evils?

     

    What Cursing are we receiving?

     

    Natural Disasters, Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Volcanic eruptions, Floods, Death of Honey bees, Diseases in our food supply, Sickness and Diseases in people at all ages now, not just old people.

     

     Environmental Disasters, Oil spills, Broken economy with no Hope in sight for recovery and loss of jobs.

     

    Leaders in Washington DC who seem to have lost what little Common Sense they were born with.

     

    All they can think about is Spend, Tax and Spend and tax some more.

     

    All the while taking our God given Constitutional Freedoms, Rights and Liberties away from us.

     

    How can any Nation Hope to be Blessed that has passed a law that has allowed over 50 Million unborn Babies to be Murdered by Abortions.

     

    How can America expect Blessings, if we are not willing to have a change of heart and Stop Murdering unborn babies by Government approved and supported Abortions?---God can never Bless such Evilness!---

     

    Let us find blessings once again by being willing to do what is right in our Creators eyes.

     

    Now is the time for all people of Good Will to stand up and be counted for our Creator and the Constitution and bring blessings back to this nation.

     

    Believers let us all join together and remove all ---Evil Doers--- out of office who have Trashed and Trampled on our Creator and the Constitution, that we may be Blessed again.

     

    People are waking up all around the Nation and drawing closer to their Creator as times get Hard and we have to face the reality of our past poor choices.

     

    There is Great Hope for Blessings to return to America as more and more people are turning back to the Fruits of the Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness and Temperance and Seeking guidance from their Creator as our Founding Fathers did.

    Hi Randy

    Evolution is at best a myth! There is one equation that even Steven Hawkins can not prove, and that equation is NO ONE + NOTHING = EVERYTHING. Our kids are not given the whole picture on Evolution, if they were, they would know it is one big lie. The Evolution theory violates certain laws of Physics, and that is one they will not teach in our schools.

    By teaching evolution  they are violating case law the seperation of  church and State.

    On June 28, 1971 Lemon v. Kurtzman, The Supreme court ruled 3 things: (Nicknamed the Lemon Test)

    1. The government's action must have a secular legislative purpose.

    2, The government's action must not have the primary affect of either advancing or inhibiting  religion.

    3. The government's action must not result in an excessive government entanglement with religion.

    By teaching evolution they are saying that there is no God and that, I would say ,is inhibiting religion. Would you not say the same?

    I thought your info here was very interesting. I wanted to know what part of the Electro Magnetic Spectrum are you using for species determination?

    Thanks

    Bill Mc

    My comments are to Randy regarding his several posts --

    Randy, you have gone on about Darwinism and abortion.  I can see where you are caught up in these two very difficult subjects.  Both are outgrowths of what appears to be a dismantling of all we hold dear as Americans.  They are not exclusively your conern.  In our own way we ALL ponder these questions.

    In the Scopes trial of 1925, John Scopes was found guilty of teaching Darwinism in a Tennessee H.S.  He deliverately disobeyed the "Butler" Law of Tennnesse -- to test the law.  Whether or not you believe in Darwin's theories is in my opinion, not the issue -- FREEDOM to believe such things is the question.  But debating such theories is pointless in this discussion.  It misses a much broader and important point about America and we as Americans.

    Randy, I hope you can see the important distinction between your narrow view on two important topics that while worthy of some disussion are not the way to encourage debate on many pressing issues that face us today.

    First, leaning on the Constitution and the references to God does not really address the issues that concern many of us.  God and country and how to re-establish the connection between the two.  That's the question.

    Freedom to be a believer, freedom to be a NON-believer, and freedom from the shackles of European style governments.  Whether to bow to a king, a head of state or a state formed religion, i.e. The Church of England.

     Our forefathers left England to find a new way.  They sought to found a free nation based on Christian principles but that is something quite different from being a Christian nation.  The difference is on the surface a subtle one but extremely important.  To put a finer point on it, to be a Christian nation would mean that we would have to be a government run under Christian rules in all walks of our lives, all citizens would be REQUIRED to believe and to practice a certain way of life based on this one Christian religion.  Furthermore, who knows what penalties the government might see fit to extend to those who were non-Christians or non-believers.  Soon enough the lines would be dangerously blurred.  History tells us that.

    Did we not see a more sinister form of such a way of life in Nazi Germany, i.e. the "Jewish Question" ultimately leading to the elimination not just of Jews but of all those that were seen as "unfit".  Homosexuals, the mentally ill, those born with defects and on and on and soon it would infect all walks of life.

    We see it now all around our world - Islamic Zealotry.  In the name of religion people around the globe are being persecuted and murdered randomly, based on some crazed notion in the Islamic religion.  As you must realize, according to them we must ALL be believers or die.

    So you see you would never want a "Christian" nation per se.  You would never want a particular religious belief to rule.  But to want to live with some foundation perhaps based on a set of Christian principles with the important distinction that ALL men are not only created equal, but can think, live, serve AND pray to THEIR God as they wish.

    It is important for us to PRESERVE our nation as it was intended.  NOT as a Christian nation, but rather one that embraces certain Christian principles and making certain that ALL who are not believers are protected under our laws.  Within the confines of these two we must do what we always have done but I fear we must relearn -- that is to balance Christian principles with the rule of Law.  NEVER losing sight of the precious liberties we have inherited.  And never forgetting that our freedom comes from God and not from any government.

    Randy, my ultimate point is we have so many pressing issues to grapple with.  Most days most of us have our heads figuratively spinning.  There is so much to absorb.  In any given day we are overwhelmed with the business of our lives while being bombarded with the urgency of a country and a world in turmoil.  There are so many issues to contemplate.  There are days we battle to stay positive and feel in control.  But what I have written here is not meant as a rebuke of your concerns but hopefully an opportunity to give a little perspective - and for you  to try to see our world in broader view.

    I think you are concerned that we are losing God to some government overhauling of our system.  Those concerns do not go unappreciated.  I believe most would agree that we have lost some value because we have become all too complacent.  We have responsibilities we all share in seeing that Christian principles remain a viable part of our lives and the life of our country.  It is an imperative that we all become vigorous citizens, involved in the workings of our country and our government but not as portioned out by single issues that we may find personally offensive - but as a whole always bearing in mind that good government and a free nation does not only come from our attention to the laws we make...or the leader we elect, but by the lives we choose to lead.

    The answer ultimately is with the gernations to come.  It may all be beyond our reach now but not beyond the reach of our children -- only IF we can reverse the damage done to  their minds - as taught to them in our schools.

    This is our challenge.  It is in OUR time that we should begin to pivot back to our foundations - and it is in THEIR time that we can once again become that "shiny city on a hill".

    The NAFTA Superhighway, that never was:

    Even in the year 2003, a completely false rumor can end up being debated by Congressman, and end up on Lou Dobb's TV show. In 2003, the Texas legislature approved the the Trans Texas Corridor (TTC) to improve road and rail lines to facilitate the movement of good within the state of Texas. Due to modern day mass communication (mostly the Internet) the TTC very quickly turned into a fictitious NAFTA Superhighway. The Superhighway was to be 400 yards wide and stretch from El Paso, TX to Saskatoon, Canada. North to South, East to West. The NAFTA superhighway would be the trade corridor for the newly united states of Canada, US, and Mexico. Congressman were asked their position on the highway by reporters in DC, and many cited their opposition to it and the erosion of America's Sovereignty. Lou Dobbs ran the story on his show on a major American news network. Viewers were "outraged." Silly as this may seem, it reinforces the point that we cannot automatically trust nor believe the mainstream media.

    I agree with the above post, you all need to open your eyes and learn to think for yourself. Stop being parrots and repeating what these megalomaniacs, like Glenn Beck, say. Or as Glenn Beck would say "Just like Hitler did."
