Freedom Of Speech

My photo
People can wrap themselves inside the Constitution, spew anything they choose to say, stick their tongue out in your face and declare you can't do anything about what they said. They have Freedom of Speech. Right? Yes! However, Freedom of Speech, comes married to the responsibility for ones own actions. If you say it, write it or draw it, be ready to defend it. Cower in silence, you abdicate your freedom and allow the bullies and censurers to win.

Will you help advance the fight or sit home?

This coming Tuesday, May 7th our battle to advance the Conservative Cause in the US House of Representatives continues with the Special Election in South Carolina District 1.  The candidates are Democrat Elizabeth Colbert-Busch and Republican Mark Sanford.  The decision should be clear, but the waters have been muddied by main stream media and political pundits.

There is no reason the Libertarians, Independents, Conservatives and Republicans shouldn't get behind Mark Sanford, but we seem to need to bring Republicans to the polls kicking and screaming.  Let's see if we can calm these temper tantrums and speak logically and bring it down to six main points, they are:

  1. Mark Sanford did not get the support of the National Republican Congressional Committee which dates back to 1866.  This first and foremost should be the reason we must support and vote for him.  He is not a Washington insider, but he knows Washington as well as they do and they fear him.  He makes the RINO's (Republican In Name Only) apocalytic! He will make enemies, but when he joins forces with Mick Mulvaney and Trey Goudy, they will weld a powerful block of power on behalf of the 1st District in Congress.
  2. Mark Sanford has garnered the endorsement of Rand Paul and other conservative leaders and groups.
  3. Mark Sanford has a proven track record as a fiscal conservative.  He angered the RINO's in the State House by challenging them to cut pork from the state budget by showing up with the two piglets "Pork" and "Barrel".  Yes, it was a publicity stunt, but he poignantly got the point across.  You have to love his originality and courage to buck the "Old Boy's Network".  His ability to tangle with the RINOs in this state's Congress helped South Carolina rein in a runaway budget and enact state legislation to prevent and hinder Federal intrusion.  It speaks volumes.
  4. Yes, Ethic Violations were leveled against Governor Sanford.  However, he publicly stated, that in line with his fiscal conservative policy, he would not fight the charges, in order to save the State the cost of a trial and to avoid unnecessary extended publicity.  The charges were neither proven or disproved.  Which would you have preferred? A protracted drawn out public media circus over a trial  at great taxpayer expense? Or a swift end of the incident with repayment of all budget expenses and fines, which enabled our elected officials to continue to concentrate of the budget and pending legislation.
  5. Yes, Mark Sanford had an affair. If having an affair was criminal, half of the married couples would find their spouse in jail.  He has been compared to Bill Clinton by his opponent who inferred he should have been impeached.  We are talking apples and oranges.  Mark Sanford sinned, but he did not commit a crime.  Bill Clinton, not only sinned, he committed a crime. President Clinton was impeached for the criminal act of lying under oath.  He was found guilty of perjury.  Mark Sanford did not perjured himself.  He did not commit a crime. He has been out spoken, honest and repentant about the incident.
  6. Recently, charges were leveled against Mark Sanford of violating an order of protection issued to his wife against him preventing him from entering her home.  The incident centered around he escorting his son home on Superbowl Sunday at Half-Time.  Rather than leave his son home alone because his wife was out of time, he attempted to call her on his cell and remained so his son would not be at home, alone watching the game.  Now tell me, who has not had difficult relationships and break-ups?  Divorces are nasty and messy.  Often innocent events get grossly blown out of proportion.  That said, an even more serious question should be asked.  Who violated a court order that sealed the document?  Who committed a crime to publicly expose the incident to derail Mark Sanford's campaign? Why is this crime not being investigated and the culprit brought to justice?
The Progressives are watching this race closely.  Nancy Pelosi has poured funds into Elizabeth Colbert-Busch's campaign in the tune of over $300,000, yet Mrs. Busch claims she will be independent.  Nancy Pelosi has already begun her campaign to regain the Speakers Chair.  For those who say they cannot vote for Mark Sanford, remember this, if you fail to vote then you have helped cast a vote for Colbert-Busch and thus aided Nancy Pelosi in her agenda.

The final question is, if a Nation can forgive Bill Clinton his sins and re-elect him to a second term, then what is stopping us for forgiving Mark Sanford his sins and making him work hard for the Conservative issues?

I for one am voting this Tuesday, will you and help us retain the House of Representatives?

Do you know the answer to this riddle?

I was sitting in my Archie Bunker chair feeling miserable with the flu, when a friend forwarded a chain email letter.  You know, one of those that has been forwarded through who knows how many other people and in the end tells you to forward it to ten other people.

The emails usually attribute a quote from Andy Rooney or Paul Harvey and 90% are often wrong when they do.  In this case Paul Harvey was attributed with something Lee Pitts wrote in his 1995 book "People Who Live At The End Of  Dirt Roads".  But, I scrolled down to the end anyway.

At the end was a riddle, which read, "What is greater than God, More evil than the devil, The poor have it, The rich need it, And if you eat it, you'll die?".  As I sat there feeling miserable hoping I would feel better for church tomorrow, this first thought that popped into my head was, "That's stupid, there's nothing greater than God!", then the light bulb went off.

I know the answer - It's NOTHING!
Nothing is greater than God,
Nothing is more evil than the Devil,
The poor have Nothing,
The rich need Nothing,
If you eat Nothing, you will die! 


To answer the riddle, you only need to believe in God and know
that God is the Alpha and Omega, therefor, nothing can be greater than he.  Once you hold that in your heart all of the other questions answer themselves.   Somehow, I started to feel just a little bit better and I knew God was with me always.

Why I won't support Gay Marriage - Don't get angry yet, read on!

Have you read the 1st Amendment to our Constitution, the Supreme Law of our land?  If not, I'll help you (forgive the sarcasm):

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Notice, please the section in RED.  I shall reiterate "or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; (of religion).

Now, I'll explain, simply Marriage is a RELIGIOUS RITE, not a governmental function.  CIVIL UNIONS, of which you receive a "Marriage License, which in fact is a CIVIL UNION CERTIFICATE" is governments function.

Simply put, Marriage is Religious.

Civil Unions are Government recognized and subject to all of the rights, benefits and legal ramifications that can not and must not fall under a religious ceremony/rite.

Couples may and do CIVILLY UNITE outside of religious institutions.  Couples unite outside of GOVERNMENT SANCTIONS and are prohibited from receiving the benefits, which the Rainbow League claims to be fighting for.  They unite BY CHOICE for various and inconceivable reasons. They also marry outside of religious institutions - The Civil license which you purchase, that document you get at town hall!  A civil contract between two people to share their lives, assets, child & pet custody.

Marriage is a Religious Rite, where two people agree to unite their souls, hearts and lives under the eyes of God within their Church, Temple, Mosque or Shrine.  One is spiritual - Marriage, the other legal - Civil Unions.

This is the heart of the Gay Marriage issue.  The overthrow of religions and the implementation of government authority over God.

They are attempting to force us to accept the Marriage in place of the Civil Union recognition.  By altering state laws and federal laws, Civil Unions as each state recognizes covers the inheritance benefits of ALL COUPLES, regardless of sexual preference.  The local license issued to recognize that union should be proof enough.  It is not.  By redefining Marriage, you redefine all religions and place them now under government control and regulation.

The calling for Marriage alters the definition BY LAW of a religious rite.  In effect, they redefine a religion by telling all religions what a Marriage is by law.  Therefore, if a religion  recognizes same sex unions as unacceptable in the eyes of God, but is tolerant in society, government has the power to FORCE them to perform same sex marriage.  They can dictate and police your chosen religion!

If you think I am wrong, look to New Jersey, where a Christian organization denied a same sex couple access to their property so they may be married.  A Judge ruled in favor of the couple, stating that social justice must trump religious belief.  This is wrong not only in it's violation of the 1st Amendment which I quoted at the beginning of this rant, but also violated property rights.  Government can now tell you what activities can and can not be performed on your private property.  Finally, what about free speech, to vocally debate ANY issue without penalty?

I do not hate gays/lesbians or anyone else.  I do object when they attempt overtake my religion by imposing their dictates and mores.  It is not just Christianity, of which I am a proud member, but Judaism, Islam and all others, for which I speak.  They should also speak out & NOW!

Government has no business in defining a religions belief, they have no Constitutional basis in defining marriage.  The LEGAL recourse is the recognition of Civil Unions.  If a religion DOES recognize same sex unions, then THEY can perform that marriage, just don't demand my church does so! 

So, I say, what about you?
