Love & Shame Of America

Jun
27

During the whole ‘unlawful’ ‘legalization’ of ‘Gay Marriage’ (whatever that is) I have seen quite a few people speak the phrase “I’m ashamed of my country” That is a phrase that I have a hard time getting around. I must ask myself, we must all ask ourselves. “Are WE ashamed of our country? Am *I* ashamed of my country?”

grunge_bless_america___precut_png_stock_by_somadjinn-d727784For me, the answer to that question has got to be, ‘Yes’ and ‘No’. I will always have a great love and patriotism for the core values of what America was founded upon, what America used to be. How we once stood up and defended freedom, justice, equality, liberty and all of that good stuff. How we took a stand against terrorism and put an end to it right then and there when it was the darkest times the world had ever seen. How we were that shining city on a hill, a leading example for the world. A place where people looked to for freedom, shelter and a better way of life.

A place where people could actually make something of themselves, not get any benefit under the sun if they came here as an immigrant, but where they could be anything they wanted with hard work and determination. That is what makes me proud to be an American. The men and women before me that actually built this country, instead of just ‘talking’ about building, they actually did. The brave men and women that died defending it’s founding principles to the bitter end. Even if it meant their life, they stood for what was right. Not like us wimps today. So no, I’m very proud of my country. Or well, what it used to be.

I Am Ashamed –

But today, I am very ashamed of what it has become. Of what her people have become. You cannot say “God bless you’ without someone curling up into the fetal position with their feelings hurt. You can’t have Jesus in school because it’s ‘unconstitutional’ so he is removed. Yet when anything goes wrong the first question anyone asks is “Where is God?” the answer to that is that he wasn’t allowed on the premises. Could it of been avoided if he was? That is a high possibility. He does defend his people. Those that call on his name.

What was once unthinkable is now acceptable in many peoples minds and they don’t even care how it affects them or are country. They don’t even care how each so called ‘victory’ in the Democratic party is just another loss for all of us as Americans as far as freedom is concerned. So yes. I am very ashamed at what America has become, because everyone has become a bunch of wimps. I am ashamed of our leaders.

Mothers young sons died fighting for freedoms and religious liberties so we could wimp out. I think not. Christians are too afraid to get political but I believe it is a Christian’s duty to be concerned with these issues. Americans in the beginning dealt with two things very seriously. God and Politics. Many people think the two can’t collide and they are right. In the wrong way they can’t, but in the right way they can.America was based on freedom, morals, values. Ethics. Now we bow down to everyone under the sun.

We are weak and feeble. We have no backbone anymore. We put the desires of other cultures before the founding principles of our own. Our founding Fathers was be sickened with disgust of how weak we have become. Quite frankly, I wouldn’t blame them.

We deserve to be spat on in the face for our ignorance.

In Conclusion:

With that said, what do I believe about Gay Marriage? I believe in what the bible says, (and no, don’t give me that garbage about shrimp being worse then gay marriage. Either you can’t read or you don’t know how the bible defines things) the bible tells us that marriage was a sacred bond created by God. A bond between a man and a woman.

Therefore, I do not believe in ‘Gay Marriage’ nor do I support it. I would not ever vote to make it legal. HOWEVER, this is a big however by the way. I do believe that the STATES have a right to choose whatever it is that they want when it comes to this issue.

I believe as a Christian and a Conservative that these two beliefs are based upon freedom, liberty and free will. You can’t very have freedom, liberty and free will when it is being oppressed. So, while I myself personally do not support the idea of ‘legal’ ‘gay marriage’ I do support a persons right and free will to live however it is that they please. Which means this.

The Supreme Court should not have any right to tell individual states what to do in this matter. If states want to vote for gay Marriage, fine, let them have it. Don’t force them to stop it. If states don’t want it, don’t force them to do it. Simple as that. And lastly. Don’t sue Bakeries, T-Shirt Companies, or Photographers for not participating in the wedding ceremonies because that goes against their ‘religious’ beliefs and that is wrong. Do not make them out to be this awful ‘bigoted’ hateful people when all they are doing is refusing to participate in a gay wedding. After all, it isn’t like they are cutting their heads off or anything. (Oh wait, I’m sorry. That is from places like Saudi Arabia and Sharia Law where that happens. Which happens to be the same location of many well known Liberal owned companies. HA how hypocritical) makes me sick.

Stop being such wussified hypocritcal babies and stand up for what you believe. Not in hate, no. Do it in love. With truth. And with boldness. That’s what it’s going to take. Where we can find common ground, for the sake of ALL our lives and all our freedoms and our country lets find common ground. Lets stand together. Let’s stand strong.

Until next time…

I Dream Of..

Apr
17

Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, whatever time it is wherever you are and whoever you are I would just like to take this moment now to introduce you to my humble abode of the web.

6787315-dreamy

Ever dream of what it might be like to live in a world where there is so much joy that everyone gets along with each other without a single fight? I do, (though that would be a dream) though I would have to guess that it’s too much to wish for, there never can be true peace in this world, because someone will hate the other for anything they set their mind to, but It really cannot possibly hurt us that much to wonder now could it?

Perhaps it could but I believe that is for another day, moving on to much greater and even brighter imaginations of the mind, do you ever dream of what it might be like someday to finally reach the other side and see your long lost relative? The one that was on their way to church that night who happened to get brutally killed from a drunk driver, or how about that young Marine that had so dedicated himself to his faith and then took up arms to defend it in war coming back home to be respectfully buried? Perhaps he wasn’t a Marine, maybe Air Force, Navy or Army, but regardless their specific military affiliation I am sure it is something many family members and friends of passed young soldiers wonder from time to time, what it might be like to see them one day.

Or have you ever dreamed of going to Australia, Italy, France, England, Spain, Brazil, Hawaii, or any of those great places? Has the thought ever even crossed your mind when you think about all the amazing adventures that you could have traveling the world, meeting new people, seeing,  eating, smelling and feeling all kinds of new things, the way the ocean smells, looks and feels when a nice little breeze blows a small little wave into your direction, or maybe the rich earth characteristics that belong to the cultural country of Spain? Maybe just having some Fish and Chips near the a form of water in England? That’s my dream some day, I think that it would be neat to travel and also to write about those travels.

Do You?

How about this, do you ever even dream at all? I’m sure you must dream at some point because it is something that pretty much every person does whether they even realize it or not, dreaming of a new car or a hot dog with your favorite toppings, it doesn’t have to be some huge majestic dream any will do really. As long as you are a dreamer, as long as you set your goals as high as possible even if you don’t always reach them they will always be there and no matter what if you keep trying with great determination, you might just succeed.

Not everyone will succeed though, but it doesn’t mean we can’t still dream, we can always make time for that, because no matter what deep inside we will always have an imagination, without it we are pretty much non human at that point. Imagination gives us the power to envision the impossible and ‘DO IT’ without that we wouldn’t have what he have today, and we couldn’t possibly be talking with each other on our personal computer devices right now.

Because Steve Jobs and his friends imagined a world where anyone would be able to purchase one of their very own computers, and while people thought they were crazy in thinking that, look at us now, pretty much everyone has some type of computer device, I’m pretty sure that way back then even they couldn’t imagine how big an outcome it would have on the world, though I’m pretty sure that Jobs could have, he just had that drive.

THINK – IMAGINE – PURSUE – Nathan Tune

I think that will be my theme next year and I believe I will stick with it for awhile too, because to survive we must first THINK of something wonderful, then we must IMAGINE it’s reality and finally we must PURSUE it into existence.

Last but not least…

I dream of a President, a man that isn’t afraid to lead courageously and vigorously, a man that isn’t some career politician but a man with principals, a President that’s real, can you even comprehend what it would be like to have that? To have a REAL leader in the WhiteHouse, in charge of this country? I dream of someone that has a proven record to stand for liberty, freedom, justice, equality and American Exceptionalism, is there such a man?

I believe there is, and while it is left up to each of us as individuals to make our own choice in this life, I myself strongly and firmly believe that TX Sen. Ted Cruz Is that man, I know there are many who may not feel that way but I for one am tired of having my principals compromised just so that a ‘Party’ can win, we must not allow ourselves to be faced with the lesser of two evils, we have a choice to make and it is our responsibility to God and Country to make the right choice. 

In Conclusion: 

I dream of many things, who doesn’t? But at this moment right now more than ever, I dream of a President that fears God first and wants to do what’s right for everyone in this country and I do know that views differ about the candidate I’ve chosen to fully support, I can’t imagine taking anything less than strong firm principled people that aren’t only focused on ‘winning’

But are also focused on fighting ‘FOR THE PEOPLE’ don’t get me wrong, there are a few others I have in mind if hypothetically my candidate was to lose the primaries, but for that to happen the others I have in mind would have to win over the cronies, I believe that there used to be a time when Americans loved God and Country, when politics and God went hand in hand yet religion wasn’t made political rather we had a great moral nature and no one was forced to believe what they didn’t want to believe rather we had a strong ethical generation of people that loved each other and wanted what was best for their country, being someone young born in this generation even though we are blessed with a lot more ease, I sometimes wonder why I wasn’t born in a better era.

This time period is just too wicked and evil for me, but I am able to dream of more than just this world as it is, I dream of this world becoming something better and together we can make that happen.

Until next time…
