The End of our Country as We Know it.

Yes I am upset that once again our Great Country elected a pathetic leader.  I have many reasons for this that I will get into.  Frankly I have seen this trend for many years starting with the election of George Bush senior.  Not that I hate the man, but conservative values have slow dwindled in this country to the point where they are no longer valid.  When we can elect an evil man to office all bets are off.  I have heard people say we are the party of "No" but the truth is who has done the compromise, year after year, after year to the point that our individual freedoms are slowly being drained an whittled away?

As a member of the LDS church I have been baffled by the support many give to the democratic party.  I don't understand how they can look and an evil, evil man and cast a vote for him.  The trends of wickedness I see in the world under the guise of social equality continue to stymie me.  How can we not see that that "taking" of money and goods to give to someone else is wrong?  How can we not see the trends that the more the government takes, the less people give to charity.  The more people get from the government the less they give to charity?

My thoughts over the past several years are very pessimistic but I look forward to the hope of the prophecies written and given.  They can't happen soon enough for the future of my children, I don't have much hope for my own.

Some of the things that have struck me in this election are as follows.

1. The war on the rich.  I don't get it.  How can we as a nation, worship the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and athletic entertainers and then in the same breath vilify the people that earn their own wealth and give a large chunk to charity?  How have we gotten so shallow and so vain?  I have been watching some wedding shows on Netflix and am both amazed and appalled at the amount of money spent on dresses, and parties shown.  We want to glorify the rich and famous, we want their lifestyle but we don't want to work for it ourselves.  We want to take, take, take, and we are insanely jealous of those that have more than we do.  It makes me sad, and the hypocrisy of it all nearly takes my breath away.

2.  The attack and massacre of our Ambassador and military in makes me furious.  I can't believe that our President sat there and watched and DID NOTHING.  How is it our media ignores this issue.  You know as well as I do that if a Republican president did this he would have been crucified in the press and rightfully so.  How can this so important issue be brushed under the rug and President Obama be given a pass.  I'm not surprised at his response.  When I first started to research him with the last election, I thought I would actually like the man.  I was pretty open minded about him.  Then I found out he was associated with Bill Ayers, a domestic terrorist was when he lost my vote.  To this day I can't fathom how we voted in a man with close ties to a terrorist.  It is no wonder that President Obama denies terrorism and has taken it out of the government vocabulary, and no wonder that he sit there and did nothing to save our ambassador that was brutally abused and murdered.  

3.  The concerns over his eligibility to be President.  No I'm not talking about birth certificate, I get that Hawaii laws were a bit different and confusing because of the ocean factor.  Someone born on a boat could be a Hawaiian citizen.  What I'm talking about is exactly what keeps me ineligible for running for the office of President, being a natural born citizen.  My father is not American, he was not born in the US, that keeps me from office.  That same goes for President Obama, his father is not US citizen, it concerns me that we have given him this pass.  To top it off, he attends school in another country, his forms say he is a citizen of that country and a muslum.   Did he give up his US citizenship, did he apply for student loans as a foreign student?  This is a serious constitutional issue and gives me great concern.  That he would be a member of another religion doesn't bother me, but what does bother me is that religion considers it okay to "lie" to the infidel, and to hide your true self and beliefs to fool the enemy.  Am I a conspiracy theorist?  Maybe, but I do believe in secret combinations told in the Book of Mormon and this one sounds like one to me.

 4. The economy, we can't stay on this path much longer.  I'm not ready for the tough road ahead, I have too much debt not enough saved for this tough time, but I see it coming, and like a tidal wave it will hit fast and hard.  How can we not see that we can't spend all this money on social issues, there isn't enough in the government coffers, and we can't tax our way out of it.  High taxation is stifling.  Have you seen France with their 75% tax on a million dollars.  Seriously, who in their right mind will earn that much to only keep 1/4 of their income.  You might as well only earn that 250,000 and stop there.  Do you see what will happen?  Jobs will not be created, and more social programs needed, and no income to support it.  To make it worse with the birth rates below sustaining levels there are no children to pay for the care of the elderly, and the children that are there have no hope for a future with a job and security.  Taxation and socialism are the end of a country.  Oh not overnight, but it will happen, the government can't produce income they can only consume it.  I have a spouse that works for the government, I know how it works, I get it.  He is there because of the need, but I know exactly who pays his salary.  It may say the "state of _"  but it is truly the tax payers.  

 5. Social issues.  How can an election come down to "Lady Parts" and Gay Marriage over the economy and jobs?  Seriously, Lady parts?  Excuse me, I have a brain, and two hands I am much more than my sexual organs.  It offends me to the hilt that the left made this such an issue.  You can't pay for your own birth control?  You have to force insurance companies run by organizations to pay for it?  You expect the government to pay for it?  Don't get me wrong, I know why women use it and want to and yes like me need to.  But this is worthy of political debate and trumps JOBS, that if you had a job you could pay for your own?   

The defunding of PBS, excuse me, watching PBS I see tons of commercial sponsers.  PBS can function on its own.  They aren't a free media anymore, not like it was.  We can't afford it, let it be.  Let the muppets that can fund themselves, do so.  IT shouldn't need taxpayer dimes anymore.  This is more important that JOBS, or SECURITY?   

Gay marriage, I'm against it but like most others we can live with civil unions to give them the social protections they want.  I don't see God condoning Gay marriage.  I have kept my mouth shut on my blog in deference to my Gay friends, but it is how I feel.  God will not condone sin even with the word marriage behind it.  I can accept a civil union to give and grant the issues that seem important to them.  I have opinions on why Gay marriage is important, I have pondered why now when just 20 years ago the homosexual crowd still mocked marriage and those of us that see it as sacred.  I wonder why the change.  I have opinions and frankly they aren't that great and condemn us more as a county.  I won't write them here.  Keep pondering it yourself and maybe you will come to the same conclusion.  I will say it has more to do with the state of Heterosexual marriage and union or the lack there of than the homosexual issue itself.

Needless to say I am not happy about the election results.  It is not just this election but as I said every election since Ronald Reagan filled his two terms in office.  I have voted for the candidate that is closest to my beliefs, sometimes that has come down to the fact that I knew a man prays to God, or his general love for the country and the military.  I could not vote for a man that associates with people that hate this country, wishes harm for this country, and are part of a whole tide of general corruption.  I see it with every fiber of my being.  I have said that I can't stand to listen to our current president speak.  I mean it, everytime I hear his voice I get physically sick to my stomach to the point I want to vomit.  I can feel his evil nature to my very core that spirit of discernment lets me know it is so.  Drama maybe, but I never felt that way with President Clinton.  Oh, sure I didn't always like what he said, and didn't agree with him, but I never had an actual physical response to his voice, unless it was general agitation and frustration.  This one truly scares me.  I haven't listened to the radio, watch TV or news in nearly 4 years.  It will continue another 4.  That is how bad my reaction is.  I can read so thank goodness for the internet and the conservative voices like Michele Malkin and Seraphic Secret that helps stay up to date.  I read KSL.com and of course facebook, but I suspect I will be leaving that social media soon.  I do better without it.  I like it to some degree, but it doesn't do for me what I wanted so many years ago.

I'm afraid I'm seeing the end of America as we know it.  There is no way Obama care can be repealed.  We can hope for impeachment over Benghazi, but it will never pass the senate because of the democratic control and I don't see any democrats going against this president and the secret combination.Yes I'm pessimistic, that doesn't mean I don't hope for a great future, I just don't see it happening until those great prophecies start to come to pass and that is still years away from my view point.
