"We The People". It's time to take our country back!

  1. I am an American with a desire to fight for the freedom that our Country's founders intended all Americans to have. I am a Christian, the backbone of America and I will no longer be silent.

    The blog I need help with is

    It's admirable that you want to express yourself. Why don't you? "You" aren't even speaking in this blog. It's just a laundry list of re-copied right-wing talking points so far. No original content of note.

    Hopefully, with practice, you can find your own voice and express opinions in a way that expresses who YOU are, why you support what you support etc. Otherwise, I can get your material from Fox and NewsMax, and they have better graphics.

    I think it's funny when people use the phrase, "It's time to take our country back!" Take it back from who? Obama was elected by the majority, so you want to take the country from the majority Americans just because they believe differently than you? Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of having a democracy/constitution?

    I also don't understand why you put "senator" in quotes when you refer to "Senator Obama." Are you trying to imply that he wasn't really a senator?

    I think it's great for people to express their beliefs, but if you're going to parade them around you might want to put a little thought into them, do some actual research, and get past your privilege and realize that you aren't the only person with beliefs in this country.

  4. If anyone should be taking America back, it's the British Empire.

  5. Or the native Americans. They are the ones who deserve to be pissed. And they were pagan. People keep forgetting it was a pagan nation until the good Christians came in the name of Christ and killed everyone.

    Who would Jesus fight to the death to make believers out of them? Didn't he say we need to turn the other cheek, forget about politics and just be a nice person, feed the poor, heal the sick?

    No offense, but don't you think it's time to put the Christ back in Christian? At least pretend you like the guy if you're going to throw his name around like that.

  6. Anyway here's a guy whose heritage actually gives him the right to want to take his country back . ..Sherman Alexie, Native American scholar and author. He gave this speech a couple of weeks after 9/11.

    and here is my favorite clip from "Smoke Signals."

  7. I also have to say it takes some brass cahones to suggest we throw the Mexicans, whose ancestors were indigenous to Texas and California, out of OUR country seeing as how the so called patriots pretty much stole it from them in the first place.

    The guy with the biggest gun wins. Yeah, I think I read that in First Corinthians or something.

    (My grandfather was half Cherokee and I want his country back!)

    I' m a Canadian with some First Nations ancestors and I want my continent back.

    European invaders calling themselves "Christians" have proved to be the most murderous people on this planet -- crusades, slavery, witch burnings, systemic persecution of indigenous peoples, racism, bigotry, war mongering, killing in the name of God, molesting children and that's just a summary.

    Was America Founded as a "Christian Nation" as you imply?

    No it was not. The Republic of the United States of America was not founded as a Christian nation. The founding fathers determined to create a separation between church and state.

    The primary leaders of the so-called founding fathers of America were not Bible-believing Christians; they were deists. Deism was a philosophical belief that was widely accepted by the colonial intelligentsia at the time of the American Revolution. Its major tenets included belief in human reason as a reliable means of solving social and political problems and belief in a supreme deity who created the universe to operate solely by natural laws.

    The supreme God of the Deists removed himself entirely from the universe after creating it. They believed that he assumed no control over it, exerted no influence on natural phenomena, and gave no supernatural revelation to man. A necessary consequence of these beliefs was a rejection of many doctrines central to the Christian religion. Deists did not believe in the virgin birth, divinity, or resurrection of Jesus, the efficacy of prayer, the miracles of the Bible, or even the divine inspiration of the Bible.

    These beliefs were forcefully articulated by Thomas Paine in Age of Reason, a book that so outraged his contemporaries that he died rejected and despised by the nation that had once revered him as "the father of the American Revolution." To this day, many mistakenly consider him an atheist, even though he was an out spoken defender of the Deistic view of God. Other important founding fathers who espoused Deism were George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Ethan Allen, James Madison, and James Monroe.

    Obama bashing Americans calling themselves "Christians" have no cred because they do not practice what Jesus taught. The same right wing extremist religious faction upheld slavery, witch burnings, and the denial of inter-faith marriage, despite claiming to be bound by the love your neighbor as you love yourself commandment.

    The evidence of how off base and out of step with the teachings of Jesus these manipulators are was seen during the Proposition 8 campaign wherein over $75 million dollars was gained from so-called Christians and dedicated to hateful, fallacious and propaganda. The consequence is the shameful removal of a right that previously existed. Worse still is that the despicable hate-filled people who orchestrated that campaign were not in any way shape or form affected by the right for same sex people to marry. Imagine the good works that brought relief from suffering that those funds could have brought if they had been applied to assisting those living in poverty.

    IMHO it's far past time for the real Christians in Americans to wake up and boot the hypocritical right-wing religious organizations and mega churches right where it counts. Pass legislation to tax their massive holdings. Make them all equal to all other non-profit societies and tax any funds they use for anything other than for charitable purposes.

  9. Great post, Time Thief.

    I totally agree. . .and admit that I still needed to learn the information on deists. And it's great information to have when you are trying to support a valid argument against this kind of insanity.

    Jeez, the things they leave out of a formal education to pursue a pathetic agenda of divide and conquer by feeding everyone these racist, white sumpremecist pablum.

    Time to the take whole dang world back from these hypocritical killers who don't have the sense to question authority that goes against every single shred of humanity and decency given us by our true creator. . .and my vote goes with universalists and scientists there, but the deists sound like a rockin bunch too. "Even Jesus would not approve of what you do." Bob Dylan said that.

    Enough is enough.

  10. (Apologies if what I am saying sounds harsh or cruel in any way. I should be more careful to phrase things so that readers understand it's the belief system I get upset with. . .not the people. We are all works in progress and capable of change. All of us, myself included. Still it makes me crazy to see the words of Jesus twisted out of context or abandoned altogether to further such hateful and exclusive political agendas. And in my own quest for spirituality which included reading and studying the bible from cover to cover. ..I just never found anything in the actual tenets of Judeo-Christianity that says "it's OK to hate and kill people and pursue legislation in favor of such practices as long as you dehumanize them and call them pagans. that with my blessing." Seriously, that should not be called "Christianity," because Jesus never ever once said anything remotely close to that. I left the church because of that hypocrisy and also because the punitive killing and cruelty in parts of that book never sounded like any kind of God I wanted to hang out with. .. Jesus mostly was OK, but somebody more like MLK or Mother Teresa, born of a human mother and father. . . until I see the proof that says otherwise and I don't mean a bunch of hocus pocus believe what I tell you or go to hell stuff. I mean scientific facts! If there is a God, I think he/she/it/the collective consciousness would want us to be critical thinkers and not just a bunch of sheep who follow the leader, especially if the leader is taking you straight to the slaughterhouse.

    Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation has released the results of their investigation of Obama’s campaign spending. This study estimates that Obama has spent upwards of $950,000 in campaign funds to block disclosure of any of his personal records. Mr. Kreep indicated that the investigation is still ongoing but that the final report will be provided to the U.S. Attorney general, Eric Holder. Mr. Holder has refused to comment on the matter… (DUH!!)

    “Americans for Freedom of Information” has Released copies of President Obama’s college transcripts from Occidental College … Released the transcript school indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate. The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California.

    The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship.

    Heres a take back the whitehouse for you.

  12. Oh...birthers. Conspiracy theorists. I like a good laugh, but I can't take that "Obama is actually a foreigner" stuff seriously at all. I keep forgetting there are people who believe that sort of nonsense. Well, people believe in UFOs too.

    I like the name United States Justice Foundation, though. Is Batman still a member?

  13. it's racism, plain and simple. If you aren't white, you aren't one of us. ..the few, the proud, the crackers.

    Some folks don't like it when you take away the one thing that makes them feel smart and superior. They would rather turn over their kids to be killed in wars for freedom.

    Forget about that. If you want my son to fight for oil, you will have to pry him from my cold dead hands.

    Here is your dinner. Stop complaining it's not caviar and be thankful you aren't starving in Africa.

    Now the rest of you lunkheads go to your rooms until you can come out and be nice to each other. This is ridiculous and enough is enough.

    PS. I think Batman was excommunicated after he admitted to being a Russian spy, which was OK by them, OK until he also asked for their blessing in his choice of Robin as life partner.

  14. (that needed editing dangit. I meant to say that this dysfunctional world could be fixed with a smidge of good caring no-nonsense parenting, the kind where your mom burst into the room and told you to stop fighting and go to your rooms till you could come out and make nice. Because what is war, except a bunch of arguing about who is bigger and better and should own all the best stuff?. I should have put that sentence before the part where I lapse into dialogue. ..)
