America’s Choice: Government Control or Liberty

Published

on

The Biden administration has helped unleash a new epidemic that is far more dangerous to our republic than any virus known to man—it’s a virulent epidemic of legitimized government control. The spread of China’s COVID 19 certainly provided the grounds for the start of our government control “addiction.” Yes, using government power is addictive. We’ve known that power corrupts, and the only way to feed the corrupt addiction is to find reasons to exercise more power and to attack anyone who tries to stop it.

Once the COVID lockdown was in place, it was far too easy to extend controls. A taste of such power reinforces the importance of the politicians who control it. They now know they can keep people home—keep people from meeting—make people be vaccinated—make changes in voting options—take from some citizens to give to others. Once addicted to such power, it’s tempting for politicians to take advantage of other opportunities to inflict their will.

Recent mass shootings are being used to push for radical gun control laws. At a time, many liberal DAs are not prosecuting dangerous criminals and have made more crimes misdemeanors, citizens feel unsafe. The sales of guns are on the increase. Why? Self-protection in an increasingly dangerous world is a top priority. Bad guys can always get guns. Having no-gun zones is an open invitation to crime. Guns are critical in hardening soft targets and protecting our schools. Leftists want to control a citizen’s access to weapons but seem to have no trouble allowing their own security teams to carry the very same weapons to protect politicians like them. Guns don’t commit crimes; people do. Control criminals, not citizens!

With Democrats waving the rainbow flag to further LGBTQ rights, the gender madness is spreading to controlling schools, sports competitions, and restroom access. If states pass laws prohibiting transgender “women” from using women’s bathrooms and competing in women’s sports, government funds for school lunches may be cut. The vast majority of women do not want “women” with male genitals in their locker rooms and bathrooms. Enough! South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has threatened to sue if Biden persists with his radical plans.

Democrats keep using “white privilege” and claims of “white supremacy” to justify special support for anyone other than whites. OK, they leave Asians out, too; they are too successful to be victims. Far too many minority Americans want government control to usher in more special programs for victim groups, reparations in CA for past racial sins, and a return to “affirmative action” in hiring and school admissions. Training people to be victims dependent on government entitlements and making any citizen feel guilty for taking responsibility for their own lives is not the answer. Using a new racism to correct past racism perpetuates a racial divide. Liberty works if you work, no matter what the color of your skin.

Democrats are sure that the “proven” threat of global warming means we must force you out of your gas-driven automobiles and into fully electric vehicles. We’ll make this happen by ending energy independence—limiting drilling, canceling pipelines, and letting inflation take gas prices to the stratosphere! There are not enough “green” cars at a price citizens can afford. These crazy rules are hurting low-income Americans who must drive to their jobs. Democrats don’t care. Clean energy is a god of the left, and their god requires that they control your choices even if it moves our country into a recession.

Democrats claim any attempt to limit voting to time-tested same day voting is “voter suppression.” They want to require states to have multiple days, mass mailing of ballots, and limits on what IDs can be required. For decades, citizens have been able to find a way to get to the polls to vote, to secure and show a valid ID, and to arrange for a mail-in ballot if needed. There is low trust in our elections because there are now more ways to cheat. The federal government wants to take control. They want to end the time-tested history of states managing their own voting to ensure that only citizens vote on a timely basis. Stop making it easier to cheat; make it more secure so we can trust the outcome.

Frustrated by decisions that have not gone their way, some key Democrats have threatened to change the way the political game is played. If they don’t like the makeup and decisions made by the US Supreme Court, they want to pack the courts with more judges they can control. They don’t like the minority party being able to limit their congressional action. As a result, they want to get rid of the filibuster, use liberal judges to legislate from the bench, and depend on executive orders to control the outcome.

Even locally, in response to drought conditions in the West, local water authorities are imposing their will on citizens. Instead of establishing a clear water allotment for homes and businesses and consequences for not honoring those limits, they over control, micromanaging even the days you can water. Let citizens take responsibility for their own choices about how they use their allotted water. If their efforts to curtail their water use fall short, charge them more and eventually use stronger consequences.

The American revolution was fought in response to the tyranny of an over-controlling, distant government. Relying on their rock-solid belief in a citizen’s God-given rights, a war was fought, and a government was formed to give control back to the individual.

With government overreach impacting more and more areas of our lives, it’s time to take back our rights.

The people of Italy win big

Of course, leftist tyrants are not happy.

Published

on

Tucker compares what’s going on in Europe with our own corrupt government here and finds them quite similar. Also, Giorgia Meloni’s big win in Italy, why she won and why the American left can’t stand it. Highlights include:

“Not a lot of Americans pay attention to European politics unless they’re very bored or work at some think-tank, and that’s understandable, but it’s a shame really, because if you look closely at what’s happening in Europe, you can learn a lot about what’s happening here.”

“Despite the castles and the funny accents and the smelly cheese, Europe is not actually that different from the United States, at least in this way. European leaders run their countries pretty much the same way our leaders run our country. They yammer on endlessly about democracy, but then at the same time they do their best to avoid democracy’s most basic requirements, like free speech and representative government.”

“You run a country in the name of the people. You’re not a king, you’re a democratically elected leader. You run it in the name of the people who live there, but at the same time it’s ‘dangerous’ to allow the opinions of those people to influence your decisions.”

“Does that sound familiar? It does because it’s exactly the kind of democracy that we live in, which is to say, a fake one.”

“In fact, there is no majority in any country on planet Earth that thinks open borders are a good idea, or that considers global warming the single biggest problem, or that thinks it’s wise to quarantine the entire population because of a flu virus. No large group of people anywhere wants these things. But in the west, everybody gets them anyway because politicians don’t care what you think. Your opinion is ‘dangerous’.”

“Shut up, racist!”

“This summer, a conservative populist called Giorgia Meloni started showing up with strong supports in the polls. Meloni was no radical, her views would’ve seemed perfectly ordinary just a decade ago. But because she resolutely refused to bow to the twin gods of climate and mass migration, people panicked. The president of the European Commission, in fact, on camera commanded Italians not to vote for her.”

“These aren’t mysteries, but you’re not allowed to acknowledge them in public, period. In some places it’s illegal. But, Meloni is one of the few politicians who doesn’t care and has been willing to say the obvious, the Truth, out loud, and as a result of that, because she’s been willing to say what everybody actually knows, last night her party, called ‘Brothers of Italy,’ won an overwhelming victory in Italy.”

“American families are facing the very same onslaught from the very same poisonous ideologies. The difference is that in this country it’s rarely acknowledged except on the fringes. Meloni is not on the fringes, she’s the new Prime Minister of Italy, she will be, and she’s saying it out loud. Contrast that to what’s happening in the United States. House Republicans just spelled out what they’re running on. It’s a document called ‘the Commitment to America.'”

“You probably haven’t read it, nobody really cares. Why? Because there’s nothing real in it. There’s not a single word in that document about the attacks on the American family that you see every day.”

“It’s their hysteria and their total unwillingness to ask obvious questions that lets you in on the secret, which is they’re panicked, because they know the current system is doomed.”

“And in fact, what happened last night in Italy is the best case scenario for them, because it was a peaceful transfer of power. That’s a good thing, that’s what you want. In a democracy, people should be allowed to have some influence on the priorities of the government that claims to represent them. And when they speak in an election, the people who’ve been repudiated have a moral obligation to pause just for one second and ask, ‘Why didn’t they like what I was offering them?'”

“But they never ask themselves that. They never take any blame whatsoever.”

The New Democratic Sex Cult

They have stopped worshipping the Creator and instead worship the created.

Published

on

The Democrats have become a sex cult. Sex is their religion. They have exchanged worshipping God the Creator and instead worship sex, the created. PolitiCrossing founder Chris Widener explains in this short video and gives you the true answer on how to defeat the sex cult. Read Romans 1:18-27 below the video, then watch the video.

From Romans 1:18-27

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
