Romney and Obama: Is there ANY difference?

November 4, 2012

In the article linked below, Chuck Baldwin included an interesting (very long) list of positions that both Romney and Obama hold in common:

But in another interesting twist, Chuck exposes the fact that a great many “conservative” organizations have received big money from “a slew of PACS and foundations that funneled thousands of dollars” that Romney created, and apparently they put on their own muzzles and made him out to be a “conservative”, as if he had repented of his strong pro-abortion policies and push for ever more and bigger government as governor in Massachusetts, increasing the control of government officials over our lives.

 

Here is just one paragraph with much of list but not all, with a comment below about one or two of them, kind of disclaimers…

 

As I have noted in previous columns, the differences between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama are miniscule on virtually every salient issue. They both supported TARP; they both supported Obama’s economic stimulus package; they both supported so-called assault weapons bans and other gun control measures; Obama has an “F” rating from Gun Owners of America, while Romney has a “D-” rating from GOA; neither man supports a balanced budget; neither man opposes foreign aid; they both supported the bailout of the auto industry; they both have a track record of being big spenders; they both fully support the Federal Reserve; they both oppose a full audit of the Fed; they are both supporters of universal health care; both men are showered with campaign contributions from Wall Street; neither of them wants to eliminate the IRS or the direct income tax; both men are on record as saying the TSA is doing a “great job”; they both supported the NDAA, including the indefinite detention of American citizens without due process of law; they both supported the renewal of the Patriot Act; they both believe that the President has “executive power” to assassinate and kill; both support the “free trade” agenda of the global elite; they are both soft on illegal immigration; they both support NAFTA and CAFTA; they both have a history of appointing liberal judges; they both believe the President has the authority to take the nation to war without the approval of Congress; and neither of them has any qualms about running up more public debt to the already gargantuan debt of 16 trillion dollars.

 

I’m going to parse out that list for effect in bullet form to make them more visible:

 

They both supported TARP;

 

they both supported Obama’s economic stimulus package;

 

they both supported so-called assault weapons bans and other gun control measures;

 

Obama has an “F” rating from Gun Owners of America, while Romney has a “D-” rating from GOA;

 

neither man supports a balanced budget;

 

neither man opposes foreign aid;

 

they both supported the bailout of the auto industry;

 

they both have a track record of being big spenders;

 

they both fully support the Federal Reserve;

 

they both oppose a full audit of the Fed;

 

they are both supporters of universal health care;

 

both men are showered with campaign contributions from Wall Street;

 

neither of them wants to eliminate the IRS or the direct income tax;

 

both men are on record as saying the TSA is doing a “great job”;

 

they both supported the NDAA, including the indefinite detention of American citizens without due process of law;

 

they both supported the renewal of the Patriot Act;

 

they both believe that the President has “executive power” to assassinate and kill;

 

both support the “free trade” agenda of the global elite;

 

they are both soft on illegal immigration;

 

they both support NAFTA and CAFTA;

 

they both have a history of appointing liberal judges;

 

they both believe the President has the authority to take the nation to war without the approval of Congress;

 

and neither of them has any qualms about running up more public debt to the already gargantuan debt of 16 trillion dollars.

 

[Editor’s note: I do support free trade, but not the “free trade agenda” of “the global elite”, because their “free trade agenda” has nothing to do with “free trade”, but it does relate to very un-free control.]

There are more things they hold in common, and Chuck Baldwin does mention some of them, like the fact that they both support the current legal enforcement of the both ridiculous and dangerous (for babies) scientific view that a baby in the womb is part of a woman’s own body. Obama has broken many promises and told many lies, but then Romney says he’s pro-life, giving talking heads a chance to say they’re glad he changed his position, but he says he’ll do nothing about Roe v Wade, and he doesn’t talk about this, and he does not speak repentant about his economy-damaging effects of his policies as governor in Massachusetts.

 

Gun Owners of America

Just to say that a forced tax on every Massachusetts resident that on the national scale Americans marched against by the millions and even all the left-leaning polls said were against by 70 percent, meaning probably 85 percent, is a “good solution” for anybody is to be clueless and shows he is NEITHER “conservative” and certainly not libertarian.

 

“Let’s not also forget that Romney’s advisors actually met with Obama’s advisors on a dozen occasions to assist them with designing ObamaCare! It’s no surprise that Romney is refusing to call ObamaCare a tax, even though it’s the largest middle class tax hike in American history. The reason for this is because, while governor, his RomneyCare plan–the model for ObamaCare–was attacked as a tax and he argued it wasn’t.

Romney projects an air of knowing much more about his topics than Obama, but he is still a top-down guy that wants to impose his own solutions on everybody that doesn’t want them. And so Romney will know what he is saying when he reads a teleprompter.

 

I pretty much agree with Mr. Baldwin that Romney will win this election, but unfortunately his administration will look like the Bush years, and meantime the powers that be in the USA continue to push us fast toward a dollar crash.

 

 

 

 

A Ugandan reporter’s reaction to the “Invisible Childrens” campaign

March 10, 2012

Kony2012; My response to Invisible Children’s campaign. « Rosebell’s Blog:
http://rosebellkagumire.com/2012/03/08/kony2012-my-response-to-invisible-childrens-campaign/

Like I said, that video was suspicious. To me it was suspicious mostly because of the last few minutes and seconds of it where the narrator demanded intervention by American advisers to snatch Joseph Kone and take him to the International Court.

I was also suspicious because this video came by way of Grace Hill Media, an organization that purports to promote Christian movies and entertainment.

A call to use more American troops to enforce a United Nations order?

Why should Christians support a build-up of the world government that will put the Beast in power? American troops have done plenty enough of that already, and they are already teaching kids in school that US interventions have been done with permission of the UN as if it were already a de facto government.

That’s prepping us. Eventually they will turn that theme against the US itself.

Of course the United States is no longer a Christian nation but Christians need to wake up out of their stupor.

Christians in their pews need to stand up and demand that their pastors stand up against getting recruited to spy on their congregations.

Romans 13, like Chuck Baldwin has pointed out, includes that admonition to obey the laws of the land not only because they have more guns (“not only for wrath”) but also “for conscience sake”, meaning you have to measure that obedience against God‘s will and God’s word.

In other words it’s an expansion of what Jesus Christ told his disciples in Matthew 18 when the tax collectors came knocking. He illustrated the corruption of the taxing laws and the people who work getting them (“Do their children pay?”) but told the apostles to pay the tax just to get them off their back (“Notwithstanding, lest we offend them”).

SPLC is an attack machine against freedom

February 18, 2012

SPLC is a far-left attack machine against freedom, and that’s why they hate Judge Andrew Napolitano, of “Freedom Watch“, and other freedom-loving Americans. SPLC calls him a “conspiracy theorist”, which is presumably a slur, a new epithet to throw at people who respect liberty. Maybe they think it has magical properties.

And when they say “far-right”, you have to remember the real “spectrum” they should be using is not left-right, but more government control and less government control. More dictatorship, less dictatorship.

The other Napolitano, Janet, the freedom-hating one, got most of her enemies-of-the-state list straight from the SPLC’s own hate list, the list of people they hate. Yeah, the list that includes Ron Paul supporters, Chuck Baldwin supporters (Constitution Party), returning veterans. We can see why she hates returning veterans. They are contributing more to Ron Paul’s presidential campaign than to all the rest of the Republicans combined, and way more than to Obama’s bulging money chest.

That’s not “conspiracy theory”, it’s public fact.

Telling the truth about the idea that government can tell certain people and groups of people what they cannot say in ads and tell them when they can say it is not “conspiracy theory”, that is McCain-Feingold, properly struck down by Citizens United, a refreshing nod to free speech. And just these past few days we have a Supreme Court justice saying they should maybe restrict free speech a little bit, in view of the fact that people are actually spending money now to say political stuff that matters in elections.

Elections, by the way, is where free speech matters most and should be protected MOST.

cops violating every right of citizens, cops caught on video telling a driver he has no right to carry a gun in his car when he did (the case against that citizen was thrown out with a rebuke to the cops), these are video clips he has shared on his show.

Those are no “theories”, those are video clips Judge Andrew Napolitano has shared on his show.

Reminds me of the Pharisees, who plotted to kill Jesus after he rose Lazarus from the dead (you can’t make stuff like that up). When Jesus called them on their hypocritical talking about “the law”, saying “Why go ye about to kill me?”, they protested: “Thou hast a devil; who goeth about to kill thee?”

Nowadays they can’t say “devil”, so they say “Thou hast a conspiracy theory” and they might as well add, “We declare our sin, we hide it not”.

Are Evangelical Christians Warmongers?

December 19, 2011

That’s the title of an article by Chuck Baldwin:

Chuck Baldwin — Are Evangelical Christians Warmongers?
http://www.newswithviews.com/baldwin/baldwin666.htm

And, no, the ‘666’ in the URL is not a satanic reference.

I’ve been an evangelical Christian since I was a child. I’ve been in the Gospel ministry all of my adult life. I attended two evangelical Christian colleges, received honorary degrees from two others, and taught and preached in several others. I’ve attended many of the largest evangelical pastors’ gatherings and have been privileged to speak at Christian gatherings–large and small–all over America. I have been part of the inner workings of evangelical ministry for nearly 40 years. I think I learned a thing or two about evangelical/fundamentalist Christianity in America. And I’m here to tell you: I don’t like what I see happening these days!

Let’s get this straight right out of the gate: nothing touched by man can be perfect, because none of us is perfect. There is no perfect church, perfect school, perfect mission board, perfect Sunday School class, perfect pastor, perfect deacon, or perfect Christian. Until the afterlife, we are all yet encased in Adamic flesh, complete with human weaknesses and imperfections. And only the Pharisaical among us are too proud to admit it.

That said, I do think it is more than fair to say that, historically, Christians have always attempted to be–and have always publicly taught the importance of being–peacemakers. Historically, Christians have preached–and tried to practice–love and brotherhood. The early church was born in a baptism of love and unity. Oh sure, there were always individual misunderstandings and differences, but, on the whole, the church was a loving, caring, compassionate ecclesia.

Mind you, Christians historically were not afraid or ashamed to defend themselves, their families, and their country. The Lord Jesus, Himself (the Prince of Peace), allowed His disciples to carry personal defense weapons (see Luke 22:36,38). Yes, while some Christian sects were conscientious pacifists, these were the exception, not the rule. The vast majority of Christian believers understood the Biblical, Natural Law principle of self-defense. But believing in the right of lawful, God-ordained self-defense was never to be confused with warmongering.

So, what has happened to turn the most peace-loving institution the world has ever known (the New Testament church) into the biggest cheerleaders for war? I’m talking about un-provoked, illegal, unconstitutional, unbiblical–even secret–wars of aggression. The biggest cheerleaders for the unprovoked, unconstitutional, pre-emptive attack and invasion of Iraq were evangelical Christians. Ditto for the war in Afghanistan, the bombing of Libya, the attacks in Yemen, etc. Who is calling for the bombing of Iran? Evangelical Christians. Who cheers for sending more and more troops all over the world to maim and kill more and more people (including innocents)? Evangelical Christians. Shoot (pun intended)! Most evangelical Christians didn’t even bat an eye when the federal government sent military and police personnel to murder American citizens, including old men, women, and children–Christian old men, women, and children, no less–outside Waco, Texas.

Christians can show repentance before the Lord and before the nations by supporting Ron Paul’s message of what I call Golden Rule Government, which is the real-life application to power of the message of Christ’s worldwide Revolution of Love.
