A look at current events from the point of a view of a Conservative Evangelical Christian who stands firmly on the Word of God (that's the Bible for those of you at Berkley) and stands behind the Constitution of the United States of America. So grab yourself a big cup of java, kick back in your chair and enjoy another member of the "vast right wing conspiracy" making his voice heard.

Is Barack Obama the new liberal Messiah? He'd better be careful before her Highness Oprah decides to knock him off of her throne!
The reason i ask this is because i was watching a clip from a recent speech he gave in Houston and behind him i saw people raising their hands as he spoke...similar to what one might see in a charismatic or contemporary evangelical church. But when it happens in a church, it is a form of worship. When this happens at an Obama speech, it appears to be much the same.
This is so VERY disturbing! This is not a movement, it is not a campaign...it's an enthronement for the liberal establishment. After so many years of denying the one true God it would appear that leftist American has found a new god to bow down to...Barack Obama.
Next to the picture of Sen. Obama you will not find an American flag, or even the Lone Star flag of the great state of Texas...instead it is a Cuban flag with the image of Che Guevara on it. Yes, the same Che Guevara whose claim to fame was leading the Marxist revolution in Cuba that gave us that lovable dictator Fidel Castro who may or may not have stepped down because he may or may not be dead (you know how much they love truth down there!). Not only do the voters of Barack Obama love his mile wide and inch deep philosophies...they apparently love the failing ideology of the ruthless executioner who personally oversaw at the very least 55 deaths by firing squad. Of course these deaths were deserving because they had the audacity to disagree politically with the movement that Che himself was leading.
The ideology of the American left truly scares me, and when they make heroes out of the like of Che Guevara while promoting an all message-no substance candidate like Barack Obama (whose speeches are so full of socialist rhetoric it might as well be Che giving them)...we should all be afraid.

I'm 36 years old, just days short of my 37th birthday...and i have seen a lot in my country to be proud of. The 1980 US hockey "Miracle on Ice" followed by the 1984 Summer Games in Los Angeles; the fall of the Berlin Wall and our troops returning home after the first Gulf War; our Senators and Representatives standing united for once on the steps of the Capital singing "God Bless America" after our country was attacked on 9/11...for starters. If given a chance i can think of many other times i have been proud to be an American, especially in the last 18 years of my adult life. Apparently that is not so for Michelle Obama.
The 44 year old wife of Presidential hopeful Barack Hussein Obama apparently has not found much to be proud of in her country in the last 26 or so years...going back to around 1982. In fact, while stumping for her husband in Milwaukee the hopeful First Lady said, "For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country..." Really? Wow...she has only been ashamed of her country for the vast majority of her life? And this is the woman who wants to reside in America's house?

A bit of background is needed. The Party of the Donkey doesn't choose a nominee the way the GOP does... not only to the voters get to vote, but, in a move straight out of Mao or Lenin's Communist Party, the Party Members get two votes... one in their state primary, like all good citizens, and another one at the Convention; they're called "superdelegates." I guess the Donkeys don't want to leave the choice of the direction of the party up to, you know, the "little people."
Now comes the insert hoof part. Senator Joe Lieberman, who is a reliable lefty on basically every domestic policy, has been stripped of "superdelegate" status for the awful crime of (gasp) endorsing a Republican! And of course, this comes after the same Party of the Donkey kicked him out because he (gasp) supported the war in Iraq!
Just more evidence that the lefties support free speech only when it agrees with the Party Line.

Bad politics Jack...but a great line!

Tomorrow is the Arkansas Primary, we are one of many states voting on "Super Tuesday" to select our party's nominee for President of the United States. This has been a rough campaign season for me and i've done what i can not to criticize any of the candidates unless it was absolutely necessary, and have seen some great possible Presidents drop out of the race. On issue by issue I probably agreed the most with Rep. Duncan Hunter from CA or former Sen. Fred Thompson from TN, but both of these men have set aside their campaign after seeing the writing on the wall. That now leaves us with Sen. John McCain of AZ, former Gov. Mike Huckabee from AR, former Mitt Romney from MA, and Rep. Ron Paul of TX.
I'll start with Ron Paul...he's a libertarian, and although i can agree with him on many issues, i disagree with him far too much, so he is not an option.
Then there is John McCain, the alleged "maverick" of the Republican party. I have seen his name on too much bad legislation and he has consistently sided with the democrats far too much since 2000 for me to support him in this primary. Although he does have an about an 85% conservative voting record...that 15% worries me.
Mike Huckabee is a great man who i greatly respect. He came in to the Governor's office in AR and had to clean up behind both Bill Clinton and then Jim Guy Tucker who could not carry on the Clinton legacy without getting caught. While i respect him as a leader, and even though i am a baptist pastor myself who is serving in the same association he once moderated...i just don't think i can support him in this primary. I believe Mike Huckabee is the essence of compassionate conservative, but with a little too much emphasis on the compassionate part. I can only imagine him becoming what President George W. Bush has become in terms of spending because of this.
That leaves Mitt Romney, and tomorrow when i walk into the voting booth with a copy of the Constitution of the United States of America and my Bible in hand...i will be voting for Gov. Romney. I realize as a baptist many would expect me to balk at his religious beliefs, which i do disagree with whole heatedly, but i'm also not electing a theologian in chief. I think he has the know how to lead us out of the economic quagmire we are in, and i do believe that he has seen the light when it comes to issues of sanctity of life and traditional family values. And i also have no doubt that when put head to head against either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, he will show that he is the proven leader that this great country needs in the Oval Office.
So my endorsement (Bobby speaking only) is Mitt Romney.
