There seems to be a great tendency among conservatives to blame our current state of affairs on President Obama.  While I agree that Obama has done much to weaken our nation financially and militarily since taking office, has vastly increased the powers of the Executive Branch of government, and that his goal is the destruction of our Democratic Republic and its replacement with a socialist form of Dictatorship or Oligarchy, I cannot hold him totally responsible for where we find ourselves. I must place a considerable share of the blame upon myself and my fellow Christians.  It is we who have failed to hold our government accountable for its actions and have allowed it to move away from the doctrines upon which it was founded.

I've been on sort of a hiatus because there is too much news in too many places heading in too many different directions and my head is telling me that pushing the wrong buttons can be worse than pushing no button at all.  My observations are telling me that too many people are pushing the wrong buttons while hardly anyone seems to know what the right button is.

I guess I'm a bit old-fashioned but it seems to me that first cause should become first priority.

In today's local newspaper there was an article extolling the benefits the health care bill will have for children.  The reasoning behind the article was rather convoluted, actually talking about how the law's provision to make insurers accept children with pre-existing conditions would allow parents to move from job to job without fear of losing their child's health care insurance.  This would provide the child a happier home life because their parents would be better satisfied and perhaps have a better income.

The mad rush to somehow, anyway, get a health care bill passed should be a clarion signal to everyone that the purpose is not the improvement of health care for the American people but to put in place a framework from which this "Progressive Administration" can complete the destruction of our constitutional republic.  As I am writing this we are perhaps just days away from a House vote that will grant a victory to the "Progressive Administration."

As candidates come forward and election fever grips the people there are many questions about the Tea Party activities and how they might serve to shift the party powers in the Washington arena.  Allegations run rampant about problems within the Tea Party movement.  Are Republicans trying to take it over?  Is it being infiltrated by so-called Progressives?  Is it too representative of the fringe elements of our political system?  Is it in danger of becoming a third party spoiler that could split the conservative votes and allow the Democrats to continue their power monopoly?
