Government vs Parents: The Tug-of-War over our Children

Posted by on Mar 18, 2013 in Education, Family, Featured, Lisa's Personal Insights, National News, Religion, Utah State Headlines | 0 comments

Parents your children are in immediate danger! Stranger danger is prevalent! Local, State, and Federal agencies are coming after your children, sighting “experts” and “studies,” to demoralize the role of a parent in a child’s life.

Victorian Parents Educating ChildrenThe evidence is mounting and it’s past time that parents stand up as the leading experts and protectors of our children.

On March 3, 2013 CNSNews.com published a story about the Obama Administration submitting a legal brief to the United State Supreme Court in the case Hollingsworth v. Perry, which is disputing the Constitutionality of California’s Proposition 8.

“The Justice Department presented its conclusions about parenthood in rebutting an argument made by proponents of Proposition 8 that the traditional two-parent family, led by both a mother and a father, was the ideal place, determined even by nature itself, to raise a child.

“The Obama administration argues this is not true. It argues that children need neither a father nor a mother and that having two fathers or two mothers is just as good as having one of each.

“The [California] Voter Guide arguably offered a distinct but related child-rearing justification for Proposition 8: ‘the best situation for a child is to be raised by a married mother and father,’” said the administration’s brief submitted to the court by Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli Jr.

“As an initial matter, no sound basis exists for concluding that same-sex couples who have committed to marriage are anything other than fully capable of responsible parenting and child-rearing,” the Department of Justice told the court.

“To the contrary, many leading medical, psychological, and social-welfare organizations have issued policy statements opposing restrictions on gay and lesbian parenting based on their conclusion, supported by numerous scientific studies, that children raised by gay and lesbian parents are as likely to be well adjusted as children raised by heterosexual parents.”

“The weight of the scientific literature strongly supports the view that same-sex parents are just as capable as opposite-sex parents,” says the administration. truthfrequencyradio.com/eric-holder-banning-homeschooling-doesnt-violate-fundamental-rights/

My article is not about the constitutionality of gay marriage. It is about the fact that the current administration believes that children are items, “human capital” if you will, for the benefit of the people. The terms “mother” and “father” are no longer valid, as the lines are being erased for gender identification. And with the eradication of those terms, so is the identity of the family, individual rights, and humanity.
At the same time, the Obama Administration is denying the request of a German family seeking political asylum in the United States, under Freedom of Religion. Uwe and Hannelore Romeike have 6 children, and have chosen to homeschool, because they felt that their Evangelical Christian beliefs were not being taught in schools. The current law, making homeschool illegal, was created in 1938 under the Hitler regime. It is because of this law that the parents’ role have been undermined and they have been fined, put in jail, and now face the state taking their children away. www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/03/15/obama-admin-trying-to-deport-german-evangelical-family-seeking-assylum-over-homeschooling/

This case is now headed to the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. It could set a precedent on the legitimate, unalienable right of the parent to decide what is best in the upbringing of their child!

The Obama Administration has made it unequivocally clear that parental rights are on the chopping block. In a statement concerning the Romeike Family, Eric Holder said, “There is no fundamental liberty to homeschool. So long as a government bans homeschooling broadly and equally, there is no violation of your rights.” truthfrequencyradio.com/eric-holder-banning-homeschooling-doesnt-violate-fundamental-rights/

The government is clearly stepping on the toes of parents on how to teach their children. HSLDA lays out the argument on the dressing up of Totalitarianism, here: truthfrequencyradio.com/eric-holder-banning-homeschooling-doesnt-violate-fundamental-rights/

It is time for parents to take a stand for our children! These are not the only two examples of parental rights infringement, look at the outrage over Common Core! Parents should be considered experts in what their children should learn, not the government. Consider what is being taught as normal today; creationism is considered a pseudo science at best, population control is considered necessary to save planet earth, and boys and girls have no gender roles anymore and can, therefore, walk into bathrooms/locker rooms ‘if’ they feel that they are different.

I had one of my local School District Board members say that parents have no right to determine what their kids need to learn. Too may people, in places of power, believe parents are no longer the experts.

I’ll tell you what: I have been an expert on my children for over 17 years. I became an expert the minute I found out I was pregnant with each of them. My husband and I are the ONLY ones with God given authority over our children. Laws and regulation that are set up to control my children’s locations, education, and health, are in violation of my unalienable rights! I am an expert on what my children’s needs are in every aspect; educational, physical, spiritual and temporal. I know their names, their individual likes and dislikes, their favorite colors, what their favorite foods are, their goals and dreams, and even their natural talents. I am the mother of 5 beautiful, talented, gifted, smart, well balanced children. I am the Aunt of 9 equally beautiful, talented, gifted, well balanced children. I am a friend with numerous mothers with multiple children. I am a M.O.M (Mother of Many) – EXPERT!

I will no longer allow the belittling of who I am and what role I play as an adult in my children’s lives.

We are the stewards of these children, by the authority of God, through our unalienable rights. As a mom, I will stand in front of these children, protecting them from the tyrants that are trying to take them away from us! Keep your hands off my children! The government has forced us into playing this silly tug-of-war. But make no mistake, this is a war for our children, and we, as parents need to stand up, and raise our voices loud and clear. Our children’s souls depend on it!

The Destruction of the Constitution One Amendment at a Time: Part 1

Posted by on Jan 1, 2013 in 2nd Amendment, Education, Lisa's Personal Insights, National News, Religion, Utah State Headlines | 0 comments

This new year’s day of 2013, we have to acknowledge what has been ushered in for this next year. What I am about lay out is not about doom and gloom, but about facing reality and planning and preparing with hope for the future, for we must not forget.

In 2012 we have lost and are in the middle of losing a majority of the original Bill of Rights. The original 10 were written to protect the right of the citizens, to bind Congress, the President and the Supreme Court to keeping guard of these rights. But the majority of the people have given up that responsibility, not because they wanted to but because they were taught to. It has taken generations, close to 100 years to do it, but by an ever defiant and unwavering movement of evil, we can see them slowly succeeding.

Starting with the 1st Amendment. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

In 2010 with the passing of the Affordable Health Care Act, businesses, private schools and hospitals are currently fighting the clause of having to provide contraception even if it violates their exercise of religious freedom. Hobby Lobby is currently facing $1 billion fine a day, because they refuse to pay for contraception based on a religious conviction. The Obama Administration came out three days ago saying that the 1st Amendment allows it (the Government) “to force Christians to directly violate their religious beliefs even on a matter that involves the life and death of innocent human beings… The Obama administration is making a two-fold argument for why it can force Christians to act against their faith in complying with the regulation it has issued under the Obamacare law that requires virtually all health care plans to cover, without co-pay, sterilizations, contraceptives, and abortion-inducing drugs…The first argument the administration makes against the owners of Hobby Lobby is that Americans lose their First Amendment right to freely exercise their religion when they form a corporation and engage in commerce. A person’s Christianity, the administration argues, cannot be carried out through activities he engages in through an incorporated business… The second argument the administration makes to justify forcing Christians to act against their faith is more sweeping. Here the administration argues it can force a person to act against his religion so long as the coercion is done under the authority of a law that is neutral and generally applicable—in other words, as long as the law was not written specifically to persecute Christians as Christians, the government can use that law to persecute Christians.” cnsnews.com/news/article/obama-administration-we-can-and-will-force-christians-act-against-their-faith

In regards to the freedom of speech: the press has willingly gone along with the destruction of this. The press was a safe guard for the people telling them of the possible corruption and laws that would be brought against them. But with individuals who are just as corrupt, willing to fight for the cause of tyranny, the whole truth has not been told. Truth mingled with lies was been the best way to confuse and exhaust the people of the facts, therefore leaving it up to the “experts”.; With the right to assemble, cities have been issuing permits to assemble, sometimes declining the permit. Except of course when it came to the Occupy Wall Street crowd. And let’s not forget the Executive Order that has outlawed assembling anywhere near the Secret Service, whether you know they are there or not. It used to be that the people could assemble outside the gates of the White House and the Supreme Court. Now they have to be across the street on the green, with permits only.; And forget about petitioning the Government, that’s just a nuisance to them and they swat it with the back of their hands like we are annoying flies! Senator Harry Reid from Nevada once said that he was grateful for the new visitor center for the Capitol to be open. The smell of tourists was just too much in the people’s Capitol. So let’s not pretend our grievances would be acknowledged.

2nd Amendment: 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.

Too many shootings have taken place in America. Too many innocent lives have been stopped to soon. The call for gun control is taking away the right to keep and bear Arms. It is a Right not a privileged to protect ones’ self and family. It is a right to have as many different types of guns, as there are many different uses. With that right comes a profound responsibility, one that the majority of gun owners know about and are prepared for the consequences. The bad guys that carry could care less, about the laws or the consequences. But its not about protecting from the bad guys. The 2nd Amendment is for the people to be protected and rise up against a tyrannical force that is wanting to take away the rights of the people and enslave them. Stalin, Mussolini, General Mao, Hitler, all disarmed the people, with the help of the people thinking that only the military needed the guns. This later part of the year is no different. I am extremely worried with the NRA calling out for laws provided by the government to place guards in our schools. Haven’t we learned our lesson with the TSA? We have traded our freedoms for security, with the TSA becoming more powerful everyday! We have no defense for our children if they get groped for possible weapons, all in the name of security. Allow the teachers to learn to carry and shoot, but for freedom’s sake, don’t allow guards at our children’s schools, run by the government, especially!

3rd Amendment: No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

In an Executive Order signed this year, President Obama now has the right to declare martial law even in times of peace According to the executive order entitled National Defense Resources Preparedness, in section b) The Secretary of each agency delegated authority under subsection (a) of this section (resource departments) shall plan for and issue regulations to prioritize and allocate resources and establish standards and procedures by which the authority shall be used to promote the national defense, under both emergency and non-emergency conditions.” www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/03/16/executive-order-national-defense-resources-preparedness The most effective way to do this is to implement gun control, and even pass guns laws to confiscate the guns. The first and easiest way to do this is to have the citizens voluntarily give up their weapons, exchange them for money, gift cards, etc. Many cities are doing this right now, costing tax payers millions in the short term and their freedoms in the long term.

4th Amendment: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Last week, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) was past and extend to 2017. Today, January 1st of 2013, the President signed it into law. First signed into law in 1978 that gave the government persmission to eavesdrop on foreign relations without a warrent, the 2008 version extended that power to U.S. citizens who spoke with anyone overseas either through phone calling, email, or any other form of communication. With the expatriation of this latest version, the new 2012/2013 version has been given more opportunities to spy on Americans within the U.S. boarders who don’t speak with those across the sea.

Senator Mike Lee of Utah was extremely concerned about this violation of the 4th Amendment and in fact introduced 3 amendments to the bill to ensure the privacy of American citizens.

“I worry that in seeking to achieve temporary safety, some of the authorities we have given the government under FISA may compromise essential rights and liberties. In particular, I am concerned about the government’s ability—without a warrant—to search through FISA materials for communications involving individual American citizens. I worry that this authority is inconsistent with and diminishes the essential constitutional right that each of us has “to be secure . . . against unreasonable searches and seizures.”

We don’t know the precise number of communications involving American citizens that the government collects, stores, and analyzes under Section 702 of FISA. Whether this number is large or small, I believe we must enforce meaningful protections for circumstances when the government searches through its database of captured communications looking for information on individual American citizens. Otherwise, by means of these so-called “backdoor” searches, the government may conduct significant warrantless surveillance on American persons. I believe this current practice is inconsistent with core Fourth Amendment privacy protections and must be reformed.” You can read all 3 of the Amendments and see Senator Lee introducing the amendments on the Senate floor here: www.lee.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/blog?ID=11f31a92-874a-4862-bf0a-10ebdc9bdb5c

Three God fearing Thanksgiving Proclamations; 1 Contrast

Posted by on Nov 22, 2012 in Religion, U.S History | 3 comments

Thanksgiving Proclamation

Issued by President George Washington, at the request of Congress, on October 3, 1789

By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and—Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me “to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:”

Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favor, able interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted; for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations, and beseech Him to pardon our national and other trangressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally, to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

Go. Washington

A Thanksgiving Proclamation

by President A. Lincoln

1863

“The year that is drawing toward its close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies.  To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added which are of so extraordinary a nature that they can not fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever-watchful providence of Almighty God.  In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign states to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere, except in the theater of military conflict, while that theater has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union.   Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defense have not arrested the plow, the shuttle, or the ship; the ax has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well as the iron and coal as of our precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore.   Population has steadily increased notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege, and the battlefield, and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom.

No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently, and gratefully acknowledged, as with one heart and one voice, by the whole American people. I do therefore invite my fellow-citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a day of thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens.   And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners, or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the imposition of the Almighty hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it, as soon as may be consistent with the divine purpose, to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity, and union.   In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed. Done at the city of Washington, this 3d day of October, A.D. 1863, and of the Independence of the United States the eighty-eighth.

 

THANKSGIVING DAY, 1984

Proclamation 5269. October 19, 1984

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, A PROCLAMATION

As we remember the faith and values that made America great, we should recall that our tradition of Thanksgiving is older than our Nation itself. Indeed, the native American Thanksgiving antedated those of the new Americans. In the words of the eloquent Seneca tradition of the Iroquois, "…give it your thought, that with one mind we may now give thanks to Him our Creator."

From the first Pilgrim observance in 1621, to the nine years before and during the American Revolution when the Continental Congress declared days of Fast and Prayer and days of Thanksgiving, we have turned to Almighty God to express our gratitude for the bounty and good fortune we enjoy as individuals and as a nation. America truly has been blessed.

This year we can be especially thankful that real gratitude to God is inscribed, not in proclamations of government, but in the hearts of all our people who come from every race, culture, and creed on the face of the Earth. And as we pause to give thanks for our many gifts, let us be tempered by humility and by compassion for those in need, and let us reaffirm through prayer and action our determination to share our bounty with those less fortunate.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, RONALD REAGAN, President of the United States of America, in the spirit and tradition of the Iroquois, the Pilgrims, the Continental Congress, and past Presidents, do hereby proclaim Thursday, November 22, 9184, as a day of National Thanksgiving. I call upon every citizen of this great Nation to gather together in homes and places of worship to celebrate, in the
words of 1784, "with grateful hearts … the mercies and praises of their all Bountiful Creator…"

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this nineteenth day of October,in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and eighty-four, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and ninth.

 

 

President Barack Obama’s Thanksgiving Proclamation 2012

On Thanksgiving Day, Americans gather with family, partners and friends to recount the benefits lavished upon us this past year.

This day is a time to take stock of what we have gained after a long struggle of securing rights to share in the bounty that this nation has produced.

Thanks to our hard fought efforts, we are grateful that we are beginning to see a better distribution of resources that hold the promise of enriching our lives.

As we see needs being met by a multitude of re-distributive programs take effect, we are reminded of the indelible spirit of compassion and fairness that has distinguished our Nation since its earliest days.

When the Pilgrims at Plymouth Colony gave thanks for a bountiful harvest nearly four centuries ago, they sat down to enjoy the fruits of the labor of the Wampanoag tribe — a people who knew that community means to share among everyone.

We look to the generosity of the natives now for inspiration that America can still be great if we have the courage to spread wealth among all Americans.

We know that it was only a few years later that these peaceful, earth-friendly natives had to face exploitation of white immigrants who took their land and left many dead. But, we can still learn from their example.

When President George Washington marked our democracy’s first Thanksgiving, he evoked the sentiment that it is always right that those who possess stockpiles of goods should be willing to spread their wealth among the needy, feed the hungry and satisfy inalienable desires for equality.

And when our Nation was torn by civil war, President Abraham Lincoln also voiced concern that in his wisdom every American has a birth right to decent health care, affordable housing and government supplemented food aide when needed.

Those expressions of fairness still echo as reminders for us today, that in spite of the memory of the denial of human rights to Native Americans, or the strife caused by a capitalist system our forebears established to attain class privileges, we still might move forward to create a fairer society.

As we reflect on our heritage, let us also give thanks to those who honor it by giving back.

This Thanksgiving, thousands of campaign workers, unionists, community organizers and human rights activists will sit down to enjoy a hot meal and a place to stay.

We are grateful that there are still some in our land who fight to make sure that everybody’s got a fair shot.

They remind us of a rock solid truth that bind us together on this holiday of reflection: for each according to his or her need. From each according to his or her ability!

This thanksgiving we are witnessing our nation being transformed into a place we can all take pride in.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim Thursday, November 22, 2012, as a National Day of Thanksgiving.

I encourage the people of the United States to join together — whether in our homes, union halls, bath houses, community centers, family planning clinics, or any place of fellowship for friends and neighbors — and thanks each other for all we have received in the past year, express appreciation to those whose lives enrich our own, and share our bounty with others.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twentieth day of November, in the common era two thousand twelve, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-seventh.

The Morning After – Its Not Over!

Posted by on Nov 7, 2012 in Education, Family, Lisa's Personal Insights, National News, Religion, U.S History | 1 comment

This morning the sun rose, bright and clear.  For half of American citizens it was accompanied by peace of being secure.  Their modern values have voted for a Marxist government, under the guise of  security; Mandated healthcare, increased of taxes upon themselves and others, less military.  In a number of states the smoking of Marijuana is now legal, and not just for medicinal purposes.  Same –sex marriage is legal.  Our food is being rationed in the schools.  Our education is no longer inspiring, but necessary collectivism.  Religious faiths are fighting for religious freedom.  Energy is going even higher as coal plants shut down.  Small Businesses are burdened with  regulation upon regulation, to the point where they fall under the weight, closing their doors and laying off employees.

I’ve read on facebook, Obama supporters say “now I have peace,”  “we are safe,”  “I hope that the government will work correctly now.”  Do I dare quote from the Lord, our Savior “Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do?”

For countless generations now, the opposition of Liberty have known that the best way to conquer and control was not through war, but through slow progression of changing the message.  However, the original message remains the same, it is constant!   Liberty is the only way to truly live!

“The question before the human race is, whether the God of nature shall govern the world by his own laws, or whether priests and kings shall rule it by fictitious miracles” – John Adams

I re- write Adam’s quote “The question before Americans is, whether the God of nature shall govern America by his own laws, or whether men and Presidents shall rule it by fictitious miracles.”

Leaning on God’s knowledge is extremely hard when we are not able to see the whole plan.  However faith without works is dead.  The Founding Fathers knew that!  High morals and deep principles were needed then to maintain the cause of liberty.  I stand and shout that this morning now than ever we need to proclaim the same message!

I love Patrick Henry’s speech that he gave in the Virginia Convention, March 23, 1775: “It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth — and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those, who having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it might cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.”

We cannot give in.  Hope leads to Faith, Faith leads to Action, Action leads to Knowledge.

Those of us that know have a responsibility to teach.  We must be unwavering in where our foundation of truth lies!  We must teach by example. God knows all things, therefore we should know that this defeat is for his purposes.  I can marginally assume that it is to awaken more people, for isn’t every soul great in the eyes of God?

“It is necessary for every American, with becoming energy to endeavor to stop the dissemination of principles evidently destructive of the cause for which they have bled. It must be the combined virtue of the rulers and of the people to do this, and to rescue and save their civil and religious rights from the outstretched arm of tyranny, which may appear under any mode or form of government.”  – Mercy Warren, History of the Rise, Progress, and Termination of the American Revolution, 1805

This morning I will not be wearing black, nor will I hang my head in shame.  The cause I fight for is just!  My children, my family, and my friends will not see me mourn today.  For Liberty is not dead.

Is Patrick Henry’s quote not equally relevant today as it was in his time: “Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! “ -Patrick Henry, speech in the Virginia Convention, March 23, 1775

Stand, with head held high.  Take pride that the truth doesn’t waiver, that our cause is Just.  God’s ways are not our ways, and He has not forsaken us.  One day we may thank God for un-answered prayers!  The sun is shining and the future looks bright and we have work to do.  Liberty is not idol!

American is the home of the free, land of the brave.  God bless us and God Bless America!

This Is the Moment!

Posted by on Nov 6, 2012 in Lisa's Personal Insights, National News, Religion, U.S History | 0 comments

This election is about Freedom and preserving the American way of life!  This is about a future full of happiness, positive progress, peace, hard work, family, service, a love of country, and gratitude to God for all that he has given us!

3 1/2 years ago, April 15, 2009 I stood in front of a federal Judge and renounced my country!  I never expected the powerful mixed feeling of saying goodbye to my claim of being a Canadian citizen while at the same time putting on the mantle of responsibility that is required by an American citizen.  It wasn’t something I was born too, it was something that I chose, willingly!

It so moved me that I was visibly shaking with tears.  And I wasn’t the only one.

I am beyond grateful to be able to show my children what it means to me to be American.   To be voting for a President for my first time was an incredible experience.  I believe even more so given the fundamental choices placed before us this day!  Timing couldn’t have been more perfect for me.

As a nation we have no idea what our potential could be!  We are the shining light on the hill, for all the world to see! Sure we have our Achilles heal that we have to solve, but as her citizens we protect that from others who attack us.  We see our wrongs and we solve it.  That’s the beauty of self-governance.  We have come so far we cannot stop now and turn to the rest of the world’s ways.  Their ways are not our ways.  And we can see how their ways could end us.

This is God’s country, the only free country on this earth that has prospered beyond measure, that has had the longest sustained peace on its land, and is the most generous of all nations.  Thanks be to Heaven, that we are different and that we have a better way!  God bless the American Citizen, God bless our soldiers who keep constant vigil.  God bless those willing to step into the ugly world of politics, defending the right.  God bless the United State of America!

Cast ballots based on Biblical principles

Posted by on Oct 18, 2012 in National News, Religion | 0 comments

“I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel,” Graham said in the full page ad that appeared in today’s Wall Street Journal.

He also urged Americans to vote for ‘those who protect the sanctity of life and support the biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman.”
