Senator Rand Paul Lights Fire Under Rinos PDF Print E-mail
Written by Frank Raddish

Senator Rand Paul's filibuster for about thirteen hours was to draw attention to the possibility that an ever encroaching federal government could use drones against its own people.  A few years ago the Department of Homeland Security sent out a memo to police agencies across the country labeling those who are strongly against abortion as right wing terrorists.  This certainly included Bible believing Christians who are opposed to abortion and same-sex marriage.  It is not unthinkable that the abuse of power by a President of this country could result in using drones against American citizens that are considered enemies of the state because of their political activism.  Ask the Chinese and Russian peoples about such a possibility like this happening.  I disagree with Senator Paul on a few issues, but he is a sincere individual who is not a “yes” man for the Rino establishment in Washington, D.C.

Joe Arpaio served in the U.S Army from 1950 to 1953.   Then Arpaio was employed as a police officer in Washington, D.C. and Las Vegas, Nevada for almost five years.  He also was a federal narcotics agent and he infiltrated drug rings in Turkey, the Middle East, Mexico, Central, and South America.  Arpaio worked to stop drug operations in U.S. cities.  He was the top federal law enforcement officer with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in Texas and Arizona which included the border between Mexico and these two states.

In 1992 Arpaio campaigned and was elected Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona.  Since that first election he has been elected five other times due to the fine service that he has provided for the people of Maricopa County.  Arpaio has about 10,000 inmates in his jail system.  In August of 1993, he started the controversial “Tent City” for convicted inmates.  About two thousand men and women serve their sentences in this tent compound.  Also Arpaio puts the inmates to work through chain gangs that clean streets, cut grass, pick up litter, and dig graves to bury people in at the county cemetery.

We Will Keep Our God, Country and Guns PDF Print E-mail

America has become a nation of violence. More gun control laws are not the answer to stop more tragic events like the one that recently took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. The spiritual decay of our nation is the number one cause of the great increase in violence that Americans have witnessed and suffered from. Prayer and Bible reading were removed from the public school systems decades ago. Discipline in the form of corporal punishment in the schools is not allowed anymore. Hollywood has saturated the minds of the youth of America with bloody violent scenes that have desensitized them about the value of human life. Over fifty-five million unborn babies have been slaughtered in their mothers womb since 1973. Cold-blooded murders are commonplace throughout America.

What we need in our country are guns, guns, and more guns.

The Second Amendment states "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

The greatest fear of any Marxist totalitarian government is gun toting citizens.  This country was not founded, conquered and settled by hippies giving the peace sign to defeat the Indians, French troops, and English soldiers, but patriotic and rugged farmers and frontiersman opened America to be settled with an axe to clear the land and a gun to protect what they had built.  During this time of American history sons, daughters, and mothers were taught to shoot a gun by the fathers in order to protect and provide for the household.  This is an excellent example for fathers to follow today.  After America gained a toehold on the Eastern part of this country the Westward expansion would have never taken place without "the right of the people to keep and bear arms."

The Bible says in Colossians 3:17, “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” (King James Bible)  The Word of God consistently teaches us to have godly character.  There are too many politicians who have the testimony of do as I say, but they do the opposite of what they say.  Also, we have too many preachers with a double standard testimony.  In both cases, this shows a lack of godly character.  The problem is there is a lack of commitment to do right.  Evangelist Dr. Bob Jones, Sr., said, “Do right till the stars fall.”  We must purpose in our hearts beforehand what we will or will not do.  The Bible says in Daniel 1:8, “But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.” (King James Bible)  Character cannot be bought or inherited; it must be earned by the earnest desire to do right.  There is no greater compliment to an individual than for someone to tell him that he is a man of character.  For many people, character is subject to change by the amount of money involved.  Character is the sacrificial lamb upon the altar when it comes to fame, fortune, and power.  A person of character can eat, sleep, and work well because of the peace in his heart that he is doing right.  The number one enemy of character is the philosophy of situation ethics.  The devil is the author of this philosophy.
