Sometime during a winter season in the insignificant, ancient Roman Province of Judea over two thousand years ago, God the Father, in love, chose to send His Word and Spirit into the material world He created and to reveal Himself in the human flesh of a fully human man who was named by His earthly mother Jesus. The incarnation is beyond the mental grasp of any of the seed of Adam, It had many purposes: (1) to fulfill God's ancient Promise to Israel (to send The Long Promised Anointed One) born of the seed of a woman (Jesus was a fleshy descendent of Eve-not Adam! Genesis 3-14. Because of her individual sin Eve paid the automatic sin penalty of death in the flesh.

Contrary to the reasoning of Stephen Goss outlined in his letter printed in an upstate newspaper, neither “illegal aliens” nor “legal aliens” have a “moral right” to vote in local American elections based solely on paying some local taxes! Illegal aliens have no legal right to be here at all-must less vote! The right to vote only belongs to citizens of the United States! Just because you “illegally occupy space” with your body in the United States does not enhance your right to vote! Stephen does concede only “citizens” should vote in state and national elections, but feels “illegal aliens” and especially “legal aliens” should  be morally entitled to vote in local elections simply because they pay some taxes to their local taxing jurisdictions while personally, but nonetheless as “aliens” in America, occupying space in that locality!

In 1861, when Lincoln called for 75,000 troops to invade the South, the United States stopped being a constitutional federal democratic republic. By war's end, the U.S. had become the extralegal centralized consolidated "one and indivisible" egalitarian empire Lincoln had envisioned. Now, after decades of relentless egalitarian social engineering, the United States is hopelessly divided, institutionally weak, and ready to fall. Spoiled, effeminate and pitifully ignorant, Americans today are slated by Providence for great tumult and suffering.

I came across this great “rant” recently on Facebook, but its author was not identified.  But since this is exactly how I feel, I’d like to share it with all the readers of The Times Examiner, because I’ll bet this is how many, if not most, of you also feel. 

“I need to RANT for a minute.  I’m getting old and I’ve worked hard all my life.  I have made my reputation—the good and the bad.  I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I have busted my butt to get where I am in life.

I have juggled my job, my family, and I’ve made countless sacrifices up front to secure a good life for myself and my children.  It wasn’t always easy and still isn’t, but I did it all while maintaining my integrity and my principles.  I’ve never put anyone beneath myself or denied help to anyone.  I have friends of every walk of life and if  you’re in my circle, it should be understood that I don’t have to remind  you of what I’d be willing to do for you.

My mother, Janice Jones Hawkins, is a delightful person to know and a very inspirational person. My mother was born on July 13, 1944. She was born around the time of the Holocaust and New Deal, and seen a lot of things go down and still here to talk about them. She was born at the end of the Presidency of FDR, when Eleanor Roosevelt was first lady.
