Did you ever go through a rough patch in your life and have the thought;
“I wouldn’t take a million dollars to avoid going through that because it made me better as a person?”
Of course, the flip side of that is that you probably wouldn’t TAKE a million dollars to have to go through it again.
Meet your new million dollar gift from God.
The 5 stages come quickly in an electronic MTV age when denial and anger morph into depression and acceptance without even having time to bargain for a hopeless outcome. But Politijim is here to help. I may have been gone for a while but have not been exiled to obscurity – at least not yet.
There are many good reasons we should accept the humiliating defeat by Mitt Romney to an undocumented alien with record unemployment (23 million), record debt ($1 Trillion+ per year) who ordered the apparent murder of a US Ambassador and who has been proven by a law enforcement agency to have forged his birth certificate and selective service records (not to mention his Social Security Number and heterosexuality.)
I already ranted on Facebook about the “I told you so” to the GOP so it is time to move on and accept WHY this defeat will actually HELP America rather than seal its demise.
REASON #1: REALITY WILL FINALLY PREVAIL OVER RHETORIC
As shown by the great Dan Mitchell, it is no accident that Obama has the WORST recovery record in jobs and GDP in history. He will NOT cut taxes or reduce spending. And with the $4,200/year in new taxes coming for the average American family as well as the soaring health care costs and increased Medicaid costs to Seniors - even his OWN constituents will finally realize how terrible the economy is under the putative President.
No amount of Chris Matthews/Gloria Mitchell/Rachael Maddow perfumed prose will cover the cow sh*t most Americans will be walking in within the year. We won’t have to say a thing.
THIS IS GOOD NEWS. When people can’t pay their cable bill because gas is $8/gallon and a gallon of milk tops $6 – reality will do what the RNC failed to do. Namely, get across the point that socialism sucks and it ain’t stopping under the DEMs.
REASON #2: OBAMA WILL BE DISGRACED AS PRESIDENT
Benghazi isn’t going to be buried. GOP Congressmen have already announced hearings and Gingrich rightly agreed and that, “you cant have an incident of this scale – an Ambassador being killed for the first time since Jimmy Carter in 1980 – and Congress has an obligation to look into it.”
Many on my Twitter timeline doubt that the GOP has the rocks to also go after (finally) the incredulous forgeries and blatant disregards for the constitution. That may be true. But Fast and Furious is still a LEGAL matter and Benghazi will not be buried by key GOP Congressmen and our military. There WILL be impeachment proceedings (although I’m calling for treason charges). Much like Bill Clinton who survived an NBC expose’ of his rape of Juanita Broderick, Obama will be reelected only to face the reality of the charges in his second term. He will NOT, however, find enough willing Democrats who are up for reelection in 2014 to go along with his destructive agenda and he certainly won’t buy a vowel as Clinton did and tack center/right to remain in the favor of the American people. He will finally hang himself.
Gingrich is also correct that Obama can NOT escape the catastrophe of Hurricane (SuperStorm) Sandy. Even if the mainstream continues to hide it nationally (which will be difficult being in a major media market), it’s weight will wear on previously willing accomplices like Christie and local representatives who have no one else to blame.
The good news is that with the unending corruption and an invigorated TEA Party and military, a weighty enough necklace might begin choking the free reign Barack believes he enjoys. Democrats know there is no way in hell that Biden would get elected and the inevitable debt, unemployment and economy would finally cause many to turn on a President with no more power to hold over their heads. The BEST news is that even if Obama is likely to dribble out the clock on 4 more years he will be disgraced as a SITTING President with an even more energized opposition. And it should set up a REAL conservative rather than the milquetoast moderate we had in Dole, McCain and Mitt.
REASON #3: BOILING OF THE TEA PARTY
Granted, a lot of TEA candidates got their pots kicked. Some due to desertion by Republican establishment types trying to please their MSM masters – and some due to their own weakness as orators and disciplined statesmen. But don’t think the TEA Party has gone away. The ObamaCareTax bite only gets deeper and more rabid causing an even GREATER entrenchment by those that began the fight only two years ago. We TEA types, however, must not get suckered into the false delusion we are great in number. An example was Ohio where:
According to exit polls Tuesday, 21% of respondents said they supported the tea-party movement, with 30% opposing it and 41% remaining neutral.
We are solid but we require MUCH help from those who aren’t fully devoted to our cause. They WILL however rally on a clear message.
TEA is best served FISCALLY (not socially) where clear economic advantages are evident. And with the number of unemployed likely to rise with increased regulations through Obama’s EPA and Department of Agriculture, combined with a strangling of small business that creates most jobs – a clear ECONOMIC opposition will continue to gain ground. I know that historians always found it odd that Christianity flourished where its oppression was most intense. The same is true with the remaining Americans who understand the HOPE of this nation to be a FREE people even before being a prosperous one.
I am witness to dozens of personal friends who weren’t even politically active less than 4 years ago who give a MINIMUM of 10+ hours per week to local TEA and GOP reform efforts. Ted Cruz is one of them. And the appeal of Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich grows STRONGER with the failure of still another mushy moderate trying to market themselves as a Conservative 9.0. But it DOES require skilled and experienced politicians to gather around for local races. In the primaries TEA-ers had a 44% success rate at challenging the establishment. And those that lost have learned, grown up and gotten wiser. It’s a long, long road – but the forces traveling down it are not getting discouraged or disillusioned – only more determined.
The just need to re-woo the Libertarian wing that may indeed have cost Romney the election. We have a fiscal commonality that is organic. And we aren’t going anywhere – especially as the screws tighten. In fact MORE should join as they feel the pain of the socialistic government.
REASON #4: JESUS (and YVWH) Love Us.
It is an indisputable fact that this nation was formed in covenant with an Almighty God. It is also an indisputable fact that 9 of the 10 worst natural disasters in the US have come in conjunction with an anti-biblical policy against Israel. BOTH political parties adopted a platform that went against God’s Word. Both candidates advocated the splitting of Israeli land from land God Himself ordained for His people. Forget for a moment that the postage stamp-sized country is being asked to give up land to a people that the Arabs (with massive land surrounding them) have refused to provide it for THOUSANDS of years. Forget also that Israel is a SOVERIGN nation that doesn’t need to answer to America or anyone else to do as they please. Hurricane Sandy formed (literally) the night of the final Presidential debate where BOTH candidates made their (unbiblical) positions clear.
And that’s not the half of it. “We the People” elected a man who voted 3 times to kill a baby if it survived a failed abortion. We continue to allow unborn babies with beating hearts and brainwaves to be killed in their mother wombs. We openly adopted God’s sacred institution of marriage for a union God clearly calls “an abomination.”
Sure, the left laughs (as do some on the right) at the hilarity of the ignoramuses who not only believe in God, but tie major world events to it. Funny how they can’t explain the thousands of documented miracles that occurred including many that founded this nation. It was so profound that reformed playboy, world leading scientist and “theist” Benjamin Franklin stated,
“…the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth- that God Governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings, that "except the Lord build the House they labour in vain that build it." I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better, than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall become a reproach and bye word down to future ages. And what is worse, mankind may hereafter from this unfortunate instance, despair of establishing Governments by Human wisdom and leave it to chance, war and conquest.
Benjamin Franklin June 28, 1787
If those that had a front row seat to the improbable (some say impossible) forming of a nation claim convincing proofs that God is involved here, who are we to say otherwise? Could we possibly understand the perfectly timed fog that allowed Washington to escape defeat at New York or gain victory at Trenton?
Franklin understood this and demanded that we ask “the assistance of heaven” for our endeavors as a nation. It is not so hard to imagine then that a loving God who desires His children to come into obedience, increasingly turn up the pressure SO THAT they can operate with His spiritual laws that provide peace and prosperity as we saw in the early years of this country when we eagerly sought His grace.
It is certainly possible to me that life will increasingly become like that of godless Europe with excessive taxation, sputtering economies and turmoil unless we heed the KEY He has provided us:
2 Chronicles 7:14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
So yes. If the economic and even emotional pain finally drive us to seek God instead of the next magic politician or political movement that will supposedly save us from our woes – this can be a good thing.
We have legions of new patriots who have awoken at the war cry of the past few years.
We have knowledge that we can not rely on ANY political party to do the right thing and we CAN cause hard fought victories like Ted Cruz and Pat Toomey.
We understand this is going to be hard and we will have to sacrifice our comforts to take responsibility to “right the ship” in everything from our local school board to our national elections. And we will be fought every step of the way.
And we know that at multiple times in America’s history we have called upon God – be it FDR’s prayer before WW2 or Lincoln’s prayer for a divided country to become united – and He has answered. Prosperity and peace DID follow.
I doubt we can wait on Barack to call for a national day of prayer and fasting – but we can individually call out as we teach our children and neighbors how serious this has become.
In 2009 I held up a sign at the first TEA Party rally declaring that our children would have to come up with $34,000 to pay our bills. It has now soared to nearly $52,000 and our money is on the way to be worthless in the next 5 years at the rate we are spending and printing money.
We will repent for our nation.
We will work to be responsible for the power we have as “We the People.”
We will walk in faith that as we do we EVERYTHING we can to elect strong conservatives, God will show up and move on this country to not just heal our land – but to heal our consciences which have become dull to His pleading.
And if that takes a little pain to wake up enough people to reach Him – then all of this will have been worth it, if only for our children.
