Giving Thanks at Thanksgiving, Year of Our Lord 2004 

- Hospitality -

I should like a great lake of finest ale
For the King of Kings.
I should like a table of the choicest food
For the family of heaven.
Let the ale be made from the fruits of faith,
And the food be forgiving love.

I should welcome the poor to my feast,
For they are God's children.
I should welcome the sick to my feast,
For they are God's joy.
Let the poor sit with Jesus at the highest place,
And the sick dance with angels.

God bless the poor,
God bless the sick,
And bless our human race.
God bless our food,
God bless our drink,
All homes, O God, embrace.

"Thanks," - From America & The Free World - To His Angels with Skin on 'em! - Thanksgiving 2004 

We Americans - and all who stand to turn back the present rising of the Islamic hordes, who last were driven back in the Late Medieval Age - wish to thank our forces at home and afield at this time of giving thanks to our God for His Providence and Mercy and Goodness to usward. Thank you, O LORD.

Thank you, his angels with skin on!

For one, Thanks,
Marine Lance Cpl. James Blake Miller, 20, Charlie Co., 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment

Happy Thanks Giving, Free World

To the Hate America First Crowd: In the immortal words of Theresa Heinz-Kerry, "Shove it!" 

Look to our coinage to learn something of what America is about. On every coin one will find these three assertions:

In God We Trust
E Pluribus Unum - of many, one
Liberty

These are the three marks of America - what we are about. Like it or leave it.

One's view of America is much governed by one's World View: If on the "Right", then it is a matter of "Good and Evil" and to one on the "Left" it is a matter of "The Haves and the Haves Not". One is always true and one is only partly, sometimes true and only to a certain extent. That second one reveals Marxist ideology to be "vibrant" today; with all its freedom-loving hatred carefully hidden under its rhetoric, "Power to the People", "Class Warfare", 'Hate Big Business' and such, keep it in your pants, kids. The sweet inducement is the enslaving mentality drug pushers know so well: Gimme, Gimme, Gimme. Entitlement Mentality inculcates weakness, just what usurpers want in a people they seek to overthrow. The hammer is the Totalitarian Political Ideology beating a people into "shape" on the anvil of hate, ignorance, intolerance, prejudice and bondage to poverty; while the new haves, the overthrowers, roll about in their ill-gotten riches the 'stupid masses have not right to, having let them go so easily...'

How easily? By playing to the self interest, especially, but not exclusively, to the economic self interest of short sighted, selfish, greedy of gain "Suckers", looking get something for nothing. "There is a sucker born every minute". Pretending to understand the world through Power, through economic class warfare, the Left seeks to lure the free into servitude, drugged by greed and self indulgence. Such as are so deceived - or are the deceivers, themselves - hate, honestly hate the Right, simply because the Right, by its very point of view, reveals the Left for what it is. As cockroaches flee the light, so Evil scuttles. This is at the heart of any perceived division in America, today. And that it is so spoken of and so much so and, in particular so much exclusively so by the Left, one is sure to understand their complaint is really not about division among 'just us chickens', but about how much is thus left for them to do to overthrow us all.

The Left moans that, now the Right has won, it must rush to 'moderate' itself to accomodate the Left in 'compassion'... the Dialectical Materialistic battle continues unabated. One N.E.V.E.R. hears the Left calling upon itself to moderate itself towards the Right when the Left win an eclection, do we? No, we do not. The Left has an agenda inimical to freedom, the Right seeks only what is right or good, versus evil. Such an agenda of the left is with us by nature, and that of the Right is by witness of the revelation of the Truth made real in our hearts. It is such a struggle as this, as it ever was and ever shall be to the end of time.

It is this struggle between right and wrong, good and evil - yes, between the made righteous and the rest, left - we see played out today in American politics so baldly this last time, for the cause was as nearly lost, to the bystander's eyes, as ever it could so closely be. Notice the enraged, bewildered, and for some few, honestly confused - confounded - commentary of the Left, how that so surprisingly, the people actually did find their voice and, when they did speak, it was "without regard for their own economic self interest!" One would think the Left was beginning to believe their own propaganda! How so thoroughly ready to cheat they were they expected massive deception from the Right, too, only to find that truth which did prevail, 'If it ain't close, they can't cheat.' And so, the Left lost this round, soundly.

To the question of Values, then. For this election did just that: Put values back into play on the national stage...

Values in action on the personal and public stage means, for the uninitiated, that there be compassion between you and me and our families and, in the public arena, we must do justice, that we must rule by that which is right and good.

The canards of the Left have no place, here. Moral equivalence has no play, here. Equality and Freedom have their place. Appeals to egalitarianism, etc, while insidiously undermining the freedoms - and even so boldly as to attack the foundations of those freedoms - are discovered for what they are: Treachery against God and Man.

What are you about?

What sort of future would you have for you and yours?

Meditation - Now, and Again - 11/21/04 

The Bestiary
4/4
______________


The Whale's Nature


The great whale is a fish,
The greatest that in the water is;
Thou wouldest say, indeed,
If thou were to see it when it floated,
That it was an island
Stationed on the sea-sand.

This fish, which is enormous,
When he is hungry, gapeth wide;
Out of his throat there rusheth a breath,
The sweetest thing that is on land;
For this, other fishes draw to him;
When they smell it, they are delighted;
They come and hover in his mouth;
Of his trap they are unwary.
The whale his jaws then locketh,
All these fishes in he sucketh;
The small he will thus entrap; ⁸
The great he may in no wise catch.

This fish dwelleth on the sea bottom,
And liveth ever hale and sound,
Till there cometh the time
When the storm stirreth all the sea,
When summer and winter contend.
He cannot dwell therein,
So troubled is the sea's bottom
That he cannot remain there that time,
But he cometh up and floateth still,
Whilst that weather is so ill.

The ships that are storm-driven on the sea, -
Death is loath to them, to live is dear, -
They look about them, and see this fish;
An island they suppose it is.
For that they are deeply grateful,
And with all their might thereto they draw
The ships to anchor,
And they all go ashore.
From stone and steel in the tinder
They kindle a fire on this monster;
They warm them well and eat and drink.
The fire he feeleth and maketh them sink; ⁹
At once he diveth to the ground,
And destroyeth them all without a wound.

Signification *

The devil is great in will and might,
As witches are in their craft;
He causeth men hunger and thirst,
And many another sinful lust;
He draweth men to him with his savour;
Who followeth him, findeth shame.
Those are the little ones in the faith's law,
The great to him he cannot draw;
By the great I mean the steadfast,
In true belief, in flesh and spirit.
Who listeneth to the devil's lore,
At length he shall rue it sore;
Whoso fasteneth hope on him
Shall follow him to hell so dim.


- Medieval English Verse and Prose, Early Thirteenth Century, Roger Sherman Loomis and Rudolph Willard; Appleton-Century-Crofts, Inc, 1948


* Cf. The Protestant Reformation
⁸ Cf. All's Well That Ends Well, IV, iii: "Who is a whale to virginity and devours up all the fry it finds."
⁹ CF. Paradise Lost, I, 200-8

Native: The Necessary Status of Any Presidential Candidate - Welcome Immigrants' Offspring Born American Most Welcome: Simple, Sensible & Wise 

What with all the to do about Democrats' globalist Liberals and intrusive foreign influence and European Socialism all encroaching upon our American ways wafting so upleasantly throughout the just concluded Presidential Election, while at the same time that bloodthirsty horde is rising up again from amongst Islam, one wonders at the wisdom of giving up - no, handing over without a fight - uncontested ground to those very influences. Irregardless of any other consideration, and that such a guardian provision is not in and of itself any guaranteed defense against the depravity of man, but, only a necessary precaution, let us briefly review what the Constitution of the United States of America does have to say in this regard as one's attention is drawn to Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution:


No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.


It would seem clear the purpose of such a provision has to do with basic issues of loyalty, with no disrespect to that of any immigrant's. Further, inasmuch as natural citizenship only arises from nativity in one of the several States of the Union, it also seems plain that proper representation to the Executive Branch - and hence the faithful discharge of the duties of the Executive - is connected.

The primary duty of the Executive being that of Commander in Chief, even to personally leading forces in the field of battle and that, in this connection, too, this duty extends naturally to representing the Nation before the World means a native born [please pardon the redundancy] only may properly fulfill this good and necessary qualification.

To change this qualification is therefore to lower the drawbridge at midnight, to permit the enemy to crawl in under the wall to the city within via the run-dry riverbed and worse, really, to actively open the back gate from within to the assault of our enemies - not to put too fine a point on it.

A word in regards the Immigrant: It is said that there is an inherent paradox between Equality and Freedom... That one may have the one or the other and not both at the same time. In that vein, it could be said the Immigrant, striving for Freedom not found elsewhere, arrives in America, Free. Free to make his home and life and future, here. Free to hold representative local and State office, even to State Governor and even to representing his adoptive State to Congress. That is, to establish himself - a pioneer, of sorts. It is his children, then, who are native born and, by a graciousness unique to our Land, are then Equals among equals and hence, eligible to the highest office of President of the United States of America.

What must be guarded against, amongst other things, is the unfortunate tendancy of Liberals to usurp worthy causes and terms to their agenda: For example, turning de-segregation into "Integration", the forceful destruction of one culture in the cause of the destruction of another culture under the banner of the rightful redress of old wrongs - old inequities - worked upon the people of the first. Another instance of the distortion of Equality into Egalitarianism is where, for example, equal opportunity becomes equal outcome - an obvious perversion of reality and utterly destructive to all concerned - for it is patently untrue and, as such, misleads and misguides and weakens - leading to inevitable unfortunate consequences. Such is the purpose of Dialectical Materialism: the rotting of the fruits of Freedom until that fruit falls into the the outstretched graspings of the usurpers of the rights, liberties and powers of the free until the free are free no more.

The Immigrant is such a case of this tension between Equality and Freedom. Seeking freedom, he comes here, and, arriving, is free. He is welcome to Freedom and, Resident of his new nation he may in turn, apply to formaly adopt - and be adopted by - his new Nation; "naturalized", he may then even vote, along with all the other eligible voters - even for that office to which he himself is ineligible by birth to attain - but his children may, being native born.

Civilization: 1 - Democratic Party: 0 


Just how does the "Democratic Party" lose? May this illuminate:

"At certain epochs, man has felt conscious of something about himself - body and spirit - which was outside the day-to-day struggle for existence and the night-to-night struggle with fear; and he has felt the need to develop these qualities of thought and feeling so that they might approach as nearly as possible to an ideal of perfection - reason, justice, physical beauty, all of them in equilibrium. He has managed to satisfy this need in various ways - through myths, through dance and song, through systems of philosophy and through the order that he has imposed upon the visible world...

"Civilisation requires a modicum of material prosperity - enough to provide a little leisure. But, far more, it requires confidence - confidence in the society in which one lives, belief in its philosophy, belief in its laws, and confidence in one's own mental powers... Vigour, energy, vitality: all the great civilisations - or civilising epochs - have had a weight of energy behind them. People sometimes think that civilisation consists in fine sensibilities and good conversation and all that. These can be among the agreeable results of civilisation, but they are not what make a civilisation, and a society can have these amenities and yet be dead and rigid." - Kenneth Clark in Civilisation

'What is really lost when a civilisation wearies and grows small is confidence, a confidence built on the order and balance that leisure makes possible...' Now, I ask you, what of leisure have you seen where the Taliban or the erstwhile Soviet Union have held sway? What confidence have you seen there expressed, where elitist man-made, man-centered Totalitarian Political Ideology seeks the overthrow of the existing establishment by any means and especially by sowing anarchy and then, by the sword, 'restoring order'?

What confidence in one's society, philosophy and laws is there where one is in a constant rant about class warfare and revolution, screaming "Power to the People!"; while corrupting, pointing in condemnation to others, charging them with the very corruption of which one oneself is guilty? Thus so does the Left, and the Talibanisationists; the Islamists and the Communists.

While pretending and promoting the patently false notion that Man, once freed from oppression, will naturally rise to ever greater heights, the Dialectical Materialism of the Marxist-Leninists - those in control of the Left - in fact do seek by such corruption to ruin that society into which it slinks, seeking to catch the rotten fruit for itself as it drops from the tree. While urging you to suppose, as do others, that as Man is, God once was and, as God is, so Man shall become, the Totalitarian Political Idealogue maneuvers to enslave you. From such foolish misleading rubbish reasonable men turn away as noisome, reeking of the foul stink of death. No wonder such movements drain away life, kill civilization, and men. Oh, and lose elections.

What sort of future would you have for you and yours?

The Serpent's Nature


There is a worm⁶ in the world, well man knoweth him;
Adder is its name, and thus he reneweth him.
When he is crippled and twisted, and weakened with age,
He fasteth until his skin slacketh, ten days fully,
So that he is lean and feeble, and with difficulty moveth;
He creepeth forth like a cripple, his craft thus revealing,
Seeketh out a stone that hath a hole in it,
Narrow, but he forceth him with great hardship through it;
For his fell⁷ here he leaveth, his flesh forth creepeth.
He walketh towards the water where he will drink deep;
But he speweth out first all of the venom
That in his breast is bred since his birth-time;
He drinketh afterwards deeply, and thus he reneweth him.

Signification *

Know, Christian man, what thou Christ didst promise,
At the kirk door, where thou wert christened.
Thou didst promise to believe on Him and to love His laws,
To hold in thine heart the commands of Holy Church.
If thou hast broken this, then hast thou harmed all;
Thou perishest and witherest in attaining life eternal.
Made aged art thou, out of all bliss, like the snake in this world.
Renew thyself, therefore, as doth the adder;
It is thy need.
Confirm thee in fasting, and fill thee with virtues,
And help those poor men that are living about thee.
Deem not thyself worthy to look upon the door
That leadeth heavenwards, but walk upon earth,
Merciful among men. No pride feel thou,
Pride nor men's vices, but cease thou from sinning.
Pray grace for thee ever, both by night and by day,
That thou mayest find mercy for thy misdeeds.
This life betokeneth the path that the adder passeth over,
And this is the hole in the stone that thou must go through;
Leave thy foulness behind thee, as the adder doth his skin;
Go thou then to God's house, the gospel to hear there,
Which is the soul's drink for the quenching of sins.
But first say thou in shrift thy sins to the priest,
Free thyself of thy breast-filth, and confirm thy covenant,
Make fast in thy heart what thou first didst promise.
Thus art thou young and new; henceforth be thou true.
The devil need not compel thee, for he may not harm thee,
But he fleeth from thee, as the adder from the naked.
Against the clothed is the adder courageous, and the devil clever in sins;
Ever the sinful man he will beset,
And against all mankind he holdeth war and strife.
What if he have leave from the Lord of heaven
To harm us, as once he did our elders now dead?
Let our body be afflicted, but shelter we the soul,
Which is like to our head; let us protect it worthily.

An indulgence
Society most gracious

The Eagle's Nature


I will explain the eagle's nature,
As I in books have read it:
How he reneweth his youth,¹
How he cometh out of old age.
When his limbs are unwieldy,
When his beak is quite awry,
When his flight is very feeble,
And his eye-sight dim,
Hear how he reneweth him.
A well he seeketh, that springeth ever,
Both by night and by day;
Over that he flieth and upwards soareth,
Until the heaven he seeth,
Through the skies, six and seven,
Until he cometh to heaven.²
And as straight as ever he may,
Into the sun he maketh his way;
The sun strengtheneth his whole flight;
Likewise it maketh his eyes be bright;³
His feathers fall off from the heat,
And straight down, into the wet,
He falleth to the well's ground,⁴
Where he becometh hale and sound.⁵
Out he cometh, wholly new,
Except his bill is still untrue;
His upper bill is somewhat wrong,
Though his limbs are strong.
He cannot get him any food
That will do him any good.
Then he goeth to a stone,
And rubbeth his bill thereon,
Whetteth till his upper beak
All its crookedness hath lost;
After, with his straightened bill,
He eatheth such food as he will.

Signification *

Like as a man, so is the eagle,
If ye would but listen;
Old in those his secret sins,
Before the priest him christen.
And thus reneweth him this man,
When he is brought to kirk;
Ere he could take thought of it,
His eyes were dark with murk.
He therefore forsaketh Satanas
And each sinful deed;
He taketh him to Jesu Christ,
For He shall help his need,
Believeth on Lord Jesu Christ,
And learneth the priest's teaching;
Removeth from his eyes the mist,
As he tarrieth there beseeching.
All his hope is placed in God,
And he on His love intendeth,
That is the sun, assuredly,
Which thus his eye-sight mendeth.
Naked he falleth in baptismal font,
And cometh out quite new,
All but a little: what is that?
His mouth is still untrue.
His mouth is yet somewhat unskilled,
In paternoster and creed;
Fare he north; or fare he south,
Learn he must his need,
Beg his boon of his God,
And thus his mouth make right,
Take to him thus the soul's food,
Through our Lord's own might.


- Medieval English Verse and Prose, Early Thirteenth Century, Roger Sherman Loomis and Rudolph Willard; Appleton-Century-Crofts, Inc, 1948

¹ Psalm 103.5 ... Compare Milton's passage in the Areopagitica on the eagle's newing (often misprinted "mewing") her mighty youth.
² A reference to the Ptolemaic astronomy, which taught that the earth is at the centre of nine spheres, eight of them occupied by the planets and the stars. The author has erred in placing the sun in the eighth, instead of the fourth, sphere.
³ Cf. 3 Henry VI, II, i: "Nay, if thou be that princely eagle's bird, Show thy descent by gazing 'gainst the sun."
Bottom.
Cf. 1 Henry IV, IV, i: "Bated like eagles having lately bathed."

Moral Values 1 v Activist Judges' Tyranny Usurping the Will of the People 0 

The Ship of State of the United States of America is in peril of shipwreck on a lee shore, a rocky coast, a Left Coast.

Fortunately, or, more correctly, Providentially, the Presidential Elections of 2004, just concluded in a majority victory accurately attributed to the preference of the American People for high moral character in her leaders, has seen our Ship of State drop anchor, set the hook and only just bring American politics - and God-given American Freedom - up short of the craggy shore of the Peoples Republic of Amerika.

The election results being President Bush 51%, Senator Kerry 48%, with Mr Bush ahead with 3.7 million more popular votes and with 279 Electoral Votes, show that the Left is now discovered as not Mainstream, and more as what one might find under a rock; it is not time to 'be conciliatory' by 'generously moving towards the Center' - which is the same old Dialectical Materialism of the Left - claiming to be the center - Mainstream - and pointing to anything to their right as 'radical'. Now is the time to govern according to the will of the people, that is, Constitutionally, as strictly understood, and expressed in the several States and in Congress assembled in beating off this Red lee shore to the open Sea of Freedom beyond, thus halting the onset of disaster and beginning to haul our ship of state, Liberals in tow, Center-ward and beyond once more, towards the Constitution as strictly understood, towards Freedom.

It is conceivable, as has been said, that were President John F Kennedy alive today, with the policies he demonstrated then into the early 1960's and up to his assassination, he would no longer be of the Democrat Party at all, but a rather Conservative Republican; so far has America been drawn along on the loud, clamoring subversive currents of the Left, who, being much in the minority, have long ago determined that to move the masses Left-ward Liberals had to be mobilized to agitate, to become 'activists' and become the duped tools of the Left, who will not suffer the will of the people, knowing the will of the people to be inimical to the designs of the Left on America, presuming as they do to know what is best for us whom they deem less than they, the so-called Intellectual Elite. Since Franklin D Roosevelt pole-vaulted the Democrat Party Leftwards over the Republican Party, the Left has increasingly usurped control of the Democrat Party from the people in a sort of in slow motion reenactment of the treacherous Bolshevik overthrow of the freedom-minded Russian revolutionaries in the very act of striking for freedom, to result instead in the bloody, genocidal birth of the Communist slave state called the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

This blessed land of America is itself properly a "republic", a representative form of government, to keep "democracy" to a minimum, to keep at bay the so easily corrupted immoral mob-rule the French Revolution demonstrated democracy to be. Most discussion of "Democracy" today leaves unsaid that such "Democracy" is an erroneous Socialist idea in the employ of the Communist; once more demonstrating Dialectical Materialism in dangling before ordinary people the deceptive and false promise of "Power to the People" and the pretended redress of a false "class warfare" while really ever moving towards establishment of Communist Totalitarian Political Ideology: 'The real problem - the heart of the problem - being truly the problem of the heart.'*

By this election, God be thanked, indeed, America really has spoken.

Open Letter to Senator John F Kerry 

Senator:

Any brief perusal of this blog will suffice to appraise you of its political orientation. That being said, let us proceed:

Your Speech of Concession, today, has been generally well received. Your care to point out the fruitlessness of taking the campaign to the court room reflects a certain graciousness and, after all, integrity. Thank you.

If there were nothing further that one might respect you for, certainly, your call, now, for unity and for common cause, without hardness of feelings, and labeling that unity as "vital", does indeed deserve respect. Thank you. Let us now look forward to the fruition of that call, together.

Your colleague's, Mr Edwards remarks, calling for continuing the fight to change America until success is achieved is, frankly, ominous. You echoed that call in your remarks. In so doing, you and Mr Edwards do further identify yourselves with the hard core Left lately in control of the Democrat Party. Let us be clear about this: This comes as no surprise at all. And, that that "Left" is the 'enemy domestic' so oft referred to, and very Red. That "Left" is a Totalitarian Political Ideology rising up from within to strike at the heart of America while she is turned to face the 'enemy foreign'. That Left is an 'enemy domestic and foreign' whose grasp exceeds its reach, thanks be to God. Pity, you missed your last chance to come clean.

However, Senator, and this is important: By your campaign and your Speech of Concession you did accomplish something magnificent, intended or deliberate or not is not for this writer to say, which has done America a great service, indeed. Your campaign has been "spirited" and cetainly partisan approaching an extreme such that by the outcome you have managed to enable America to send a message to our friends and foreign enemies of such American solidarity, perhaps unprecedented, before or since December 7th, 1941. And, in so doing, so encouraged all Americans and our many allies in the long and laborious, sometimes tedious and always dangerous time ahead until this present uprising of Islamic Totalitarian Political Ideology is utterly crushed by our hand, LORD willing. By so doing, you have 'changed America' for the better. Thank you.

It has been a long night and day. Wishing you all the best, good night, John F Kerry.

Sincerely,

An American blogger

Humble Confidence in Providence: President George W Bush Re-Elected President of the United States 

- Praise the LORD -

The lot is cast into the lap;
but the whole disposing thereof
is of the LORD...


Righteousness exalteth a nation:
but sin is a reproach to any people.

It is joy to the just to do judgment:
but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.

Rejoice not when thy enemy falleth,
and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth:
Lest the LORD see it, and it desplease him,
and he turn away his wrath from him.

He that saith unto the wicked,
Thou art righteous;
him shall the people curse,
nations shall abhor him:
But to them that rebuke him shall be delight,
and a good blessing shall come upon them.

Where there is no vision,
the people perish:
but he that keepeth the law,
happy is he.

When it goeth well with the righteous,
the city rejoiceth:
and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.

By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted:
but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

The lot causeth contentions to cease,
and parteth between the mighty.

The evil bow before the good;
and the wicked at the gates of the righteous.

An unjust man is an abomination to the just:
and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.

When the wicked rise,
men hide themselves:
but when they perish,
the righteous increase.

- Selected from Proverbs

Of the Office of President of the United States of America 

From the
Constitution of the United States of America
in re, the President of the United States

Art.II; Section 1

Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation: - "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."


Art. II; Section 2

The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called, into the actual Service of the United States; etc. ...


In the consideration of the many important duties of the President of the United States, one looms large in importance far and above the rest, that of the National Defense. This is so, that there is no impediment found in the Constitution to the President in fact leading troops in the field.

Therefore, consider for a moment the qualities requisite to faithfully discharge such duties, especially in view of the Presidential Election Campaign Season of 2004 now in the throes of its climax, today.

To distill the matter to its most essential, let us state these three:
A fairminded, objective and discerning study of the two major candidates, not to mention the rest, leads one inevitably to one conclusion, alone: There is but one man - one candidate - who fully meets these three criteria.

That is, unless one is dictated to by one's Totalitarian Political Ideology - at the expense of one's own country. Unless one is blinded by Hate, or lust for Power, or great Vanity, there is but one candidate to rely upon to so faithfully execute the Office of the President in the National Defense in a time of War as to have a certain confidence in the successful outcome, come when it may.

America is about Liberty - about Freedom - for all; here, there, everywhere. Freedom may be instilled, but never imposed, as can and does tyranny. When the choice is whether to fight them over there or, to fight them over here, there is but one vote: Fight them over there. And, inasmuch as we are here dealing with, "Enemies, foreign and domestic" - guard your back, the meanwhile.

Freedom must be guarded and defended from those who would steal it, wherever they are. Lovers of Oppression hate Freedom and those that fly the flag of Liberty, for no tyrant can flourish where Freedom rings and Vigilance is sharp. Beware, America!

What sort of future would you have for you and yours?

Of Comfort is the Sovereignty of God... Therefore, Take Courage: Even This Election is of God 

Know This Surely:

Even
a child is known by his doings,
whether his work be pure,
and whether it be right.


The hearing ear, and the seeing eye,
the LORD hath made even both of them.

Bread of deceit is sweet to a man;
but afterwards his mouth
shall be filled with gravel.

The spirit of man is
the candle of the LORD,
searching all
the inward parts of the belly.

Mercy and Truth preserve the king:
and his throne is upholden by mercy.

The king's heart is in the hand
of the LORD,
as the rivers of water:
He turneth it whitersoever He will.

The getting of treasures by a
lying tongue is a vanity
tossed to and fro of them
that seek death.

A wicked man
hardeneth his face:
but as for the upright,
He directeth his way.

He that soweth iniquity
shall reap vanity:
and the rod of his anger
shall fail.


Remove not the ancient landmark,
which thy fathers have set.


- Selected, of Proverbs 20, 21 and 23
