It was as if the world had gone crazy. Young men, the best and brightest, those full of hope, were thrown into a churning machine where many perished as soon as they arrived. Millions of Europe’s best hopes expired in the trenches of the battlefield. It was war at its worst. It was dubbed the “war to end all wars”. It ended out of exhaustion on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.

An article was written stating christians demand a king in a political candidate. No we don’t.

Christans do not demand a king. Christians should demand someone who loves their country and its people more than power and theirself.

The problem is too many are willing to be led by marketing, news media, and personality rather than sound wisdom, self-education, and sound decision-making.

Abdication of self-governing responsibility leads to dictatorship by others. In the USA, our government is based on the premise that the adults are required govern or manage their own affairs. That responsibility is not given to others.

Everywhere else on Earth, the responsibility of governance is to the state – whether dictator, monarch, or elite assembly.

I count it an extreme privilege to have been born in the time I am and in the country I am where my dependence is not on the favor of a state system but on self determination and individual sovereignty.

I am not dependent on a political savior. I am not so much anti-Obama as anti-bad governmental management.

Our founding leaders understood the US government was based on managing the connectivity of all citizens and not determing how those not of the patron class were to live.

The USA does not need a king, despot, nor ruling assembly. The USA needs only those who are willing to serve their fellow countrymen and the benefit of their nation.

No kings needed here. No kings need apply.

The Fourteenth Amendment’s guarantee is more than just being born in the USA. The Fourteenth Amendment guarantees the citizenship of those naturalized or those born to USA citizens.

Too many people have misinterpreted the Constitution to say “if they are born here, they are US citizens.” That would be wrong. To be a citizen of the USA you have to be under the jurisdiction of the US Constitution; meaning to say, the Constitution has to apply to you.

The current US Congress, White House, and Washington bureaucracies do not understand budgets and their purpose. To most, a budget is a piece of paper that says this is what we will spend but you know we will exceed that. Why? Why are there so many politicians and fiduciary gluttons in government? Whatever happened to managing the affairs of state to the benefit of the people? The early Presidents of the US warned following citizens to pay off the government debt in the same year or in a reasonable time. It is a form of insanity to deny reality and truth. I think they call it dementia.

Here’s a thought: to all those who like to point out just how intolerant Christians are, how unwilling they are to compromise their beliefs to suit others’ opinions – you are still alive, aren’t you?

Christians are extremely tolerant, because they do not see those who oppose them as enemies. Those who follow Jesus Christ see all humans as family. Families differ and may have arguments, but they are still family.

Recently there was a “crisis” in Washington DC among the managers of government. They had overspent, politicized, and planned for appropriations legislation to come to a dramatic confrontation of one party against another; and it was very exciting to those in “news” media. The Executive Administration of POTUS Obama “shutdown the government.” It was quite dramatic, people were laid off (furloughed), and completely untrue. 17% of the government was shutdown; just the parts to create drama and news coverage. The end result to all the drama resolved on cue; just as any televised mini-series or telenovela. For all of the drama and finger pointing, what really happened was more politicking and deal-making pork-barrel spending. The initial argument was that the Federal government ran out of money, so they needed a special funding bill to cover spending to year-end to keep the government running. It was a drama ruse. Plain and simple. The plan will take the Fed deficit from under 17T$ to over 17T$. There was and is no plan to limit or control spending toward being balanced or less than income. It is spend-spend-spend politics.

ImageSomewhere, somehow, someone got the idea that all is equal … or that it should be. It is not. Life is not equal. Academia and theorists all espouse concepts and constructs, models and metaphors that life should be equal and all within it should be equal, too. That is a comfy notion constructed by professors and theorists sitting in comfy chairs with comfy air conditioned offices. It is not, however, how life on this planet works. Life is not equal.
