Here’s “Change”: Obama Calls For “New” Declaration of Independence

We voted for change.  So let’s go ahead and abandon everything that founded this nation and made it great and HAVE change.

Let’s start with the Declaration of Independence.  Let’s “change” it.

Obama said:

“We are here today not simply to pay tribute to those patriots who founded our nation in Philadelphia or defended it in Baltimore, but to take up the cause for which they gave so much. The trials we face are very different now, but severe in their own right. Only a handful of times in our history has a generation been confronted with challenges so vast. An economy that is faltering. Two wars, one that needs to be ended responsibly, one that needs to be waged wisely. A planet that is warming from our unsustainable dependence on oil.

“And yet while our problems may be new, what is required to overcome them is not. What is required is the same perseverance and idealism that those first patriots displayed. What is required is a new declaration of independence, not just in our nation, but in our own lives — from ideology and small thinking, prejudice and bigotry — an appeal not to our easy instincts but to our better angels.”

Call me old fashioned, but I am kind of attached to the “old” Declaration of Independence:

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

Let us not forget that Barack Hussein Obama (it’s okay now: “The Obama” has decreed that it is NOT blasphemy to invoke his middle name after all) spent 23 years in a church whose pastor screamed the following as his fellow congregants stood up to cheer and shout their affirmation:

No, no, no! Not God bless America. God damn America!

So you can readily understand why Obama would want a “new” Declaration of Independence that nowhere mentions God or the Judeo-Christian worldview that our founders grounded their separation from England upon.

Follow the obvious logical progression of the “old” Declaration of Independence.  God – as our Creator and Sustainer – endowed men with certain fundamental and inalienable rights.  The king of England was denying the American colonies these inalienable rights.  Therefore America had the right to separate from the king and from England.

But Obama’s “new Declaration of Independence” does not need God and does not want Him.  Let us simply call it what it is: the Declaration of Independence from God, or – better yet – the “God Damn America Declaration of Independence.”

I’ve been preaching this sermon well before I wrote, “Obama Wins! God Damn America!” on election night.  It does not surprise me for a single nanosecond that a man who spent 23 years in a blatantly racist, anti-American, and profoundly anti-Christian church would call for a “new” Declaration of Independence.

We can also realize that the Declaration of Independence that Obama now wants to replace also implies another reality: the reality that a government that replaces God is a tyrannous institution.  It is a somber note of warning to any bureaucrat that views government – rather than God – as savior.

You can understand why Obama – who fundamentally believes that ONLY government can save us, and who passionately believes that a gigantic government bureaucracy that intrudes into absolutely every aspect of our lives – would want to see that “old” Declaration of Independence as well as the “old” America itself go the way of the dinosaur.

There is one other thing about Obama’s smarmy, arrogant brand of elitist liberalism that should make any morally-centered human being want to vomit.  Obama says he wants a new declaration of independence “from ideology and small thinking, prejudice and bigotry.”  And implicit in that demand is that it is others – and never himself – who have ideology and the rest of the bag of things he wants us to be “independent” from.

That’s right.  Obama doesn’t have any “ideology.”  Only his opponents do.  And only his opponents are “small minded.”

Barack Obama is an arrogant fool who does not understand his own ideology, and his own commitment to ideological positions.  It is morally insane for a Barack Obama to claim that his position that babies who survived abortion should still be killed by means of denying medical treatment is somehow NOT ideological, while my own pro-life position IS ideological.  I can say the same thing about Obama’s mandate that the military should be forced to embrace homosexuality.  If I may say it, it is incredibly “small minded” of Barack Obama to think something so patently ridiculous.

And a declaration from “prejudice and bigotry”?  I shouldn’t have to mention the recent incredibly racist and prejucicial diatribe issued from Obama supporters like Bobby Rush damning everyone who wanted to prevent tainted Blagojevich pick to fill Obama’s Senate seat as a “racist” who wants to “lynch” black people and force them back to the “plantation” days.  We can add to that list Obama supporter John Lewis’ mind-bogglingly hateful racist tirade against John McCain, and then consider Obama’s own repeated use of the race card to undermine his opponents (e.g., hearken back to Obama’s “And did I mention he’s black?” insinuations).

It would seem that independence from “prejudice and bigotry” would necessarily mean “independence from Obama and his prejudiced and bigoted Democrats.”

In addition to Obama’s heinous and despicable hostility to the views of our founding fathers and the worldview that made this country great – demonstrated by his own words and positions as well as by the words and positions of his pastor and his church – Barack Obama embodies an appalling lack of intellectual honesty.

Added January 19, 2009: It appears that Obama has determined to take our most cherished institutions and symbols and stamp them with his image.  Take what Michlle Malkin called “the official flag of the Obama states of America.”

official-flag-obama-states-of-america

According to the US Flag Code: “The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.”

Not that there’s any chance IN HELL that John McCain would have stuck his name and image on a flag, but how do you think the liberals would have reacted if he had?

And let me go ahead and add in Obama’s attitutde toward our Constitution and our founding fathers: (youtube link with audio available here):

I think that we can say that the Constitution reflected the enormous blind spot in this culture that carries on until this day and that the framers had that same blind spot. I don’t think the two views are contradictory to say that it was a remarkable political document that paved the way for where we are now and to say that it also reflected the fundamental flaw of this country that continues to this day.

The Constitution – you know, the thing our Presidents have sworn to uphold for more than 220 years? – is viewed by Barack Obama as having an “enormous blind spot.”  Our founding fathers were similarly blind.  There’s a “fundamental flaw” with the system of government that has made this the greatest nation in the history of the world.

    Declaration of Independence. belongs to we the people and not to the jug heads of the Socialist who want to make change for there own political views. (When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth,) Let this happen and I’ll be one of the first to join arms against the ones that want to change are Declaration. I hope that this will never happen and I pray that God will protect what we be leave in .

  2. Mary Says:

    I still say that anyone born a Muslim will always be a Muslim—because Muslims follow the father and Hussein Obama ‘s father and all family from Africa are Muslims. This is why the Miuslims bought the presidency so he could destroy our country from within once he is in the White house. The stupid blacks think he is the black messiah when all he is is sneaky, slimy Mullatto!!!!!

  3. Michael Eden Says:

    This is a particularly serious “Freudian slip” because Obama is already on record (although he doesn’t want anyone to know it) having questioned the wisdom of the founding fathers and the “blind spot” that is the Constitution. Obama has a radically different view of America than most Americans realize; and certainly a different American than the founding fathers would ever have tolerated.

    Shame that we voted for the destruction of our nation. I believe that the United States will be a very different place in 3 or 4 years. And it won’t be a good place.

    Mary, it is NOT being a “mulatto” that makes Obama sneaky and slimy; it is rather his worldview and his character. And it is most certainly not merely blacks who view Obama as the “messiah.” Would that they were. Way too many white people and Hispanics think the same way.

    I doubt that Obama is a Muslim; I think there’s only room in Obama’s soul for one god – and that god’s name is “Barack Obama.” In that sense, I think that Obama will protect or betray whoever it is in HIS interests to protect and betray.

  4. David Says:

    I think no matter how we voted, we all need an Inauguration day Attitude Check. Where is our hope? Not in government. Yet still, we are called to pray…and submit. Yikes! For a full thoughtful evangelical’s post, check out Red Letter Believers at:

  5. Michael Eden Says:

    I’ll save your article and try to read it later (I’m in the middle of about 4 things right now).

    On my view of Scripture, we recognize that government is a divinely-ordained institution. There are – as Augustine and later Luther wrote, two Kingdoms. God did not intend to remove man from human government. But the apostles showed that human government does not have authority to remove the OTHER kingdom, either (Acts 4:18-21). When wicked men usurp the fundamental rights of others, or try to usurp God’s authority, men have the right to act to disobey, speak against, or even forcibly remove such governments.

    Your overall point is a very good one: we are now in an era of “Government as Savior.”

  6. B.Taylor Says:

    We have had plenty of time to complain, but the fact is (like it or not) Obama is now our President. If you call yourself a Christian than you must understand that he is in a position of Authority and we must respect that. Please continue to pray for Obama and his Administration. Wouldn’t it be awesome to see him turn his life over to Jesus Christ while he is in office. Talk about giving glory to God…now that would be something. Prayer works…and Obama certainly needs our prayers. So let’s be Christ-like. Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a physician, but the sick”. Let’s UNITE and PRAY!!!

  7. Michael Eden Says:

    I DO call myself a Christian. But if YOU call yourself a Christian, you will oppose his ungodly policies – such as the most depraved abortion policy in history. Any understanding of “He’s my President, so I must support everything he does right or wrong” is itself wrong. And I will work against him until he supports what is right and what is moral. We have only to look at the Old Testament, with the prophets confronting wicked king after wicked king and rebuking them. We have only to turn to Acts 4:18-19 to see that one’s support for government has clear limits.

    Where Obama supports what is good, I will join with him. Where he does not, I will not.

    I think you are missing a major point: for Christians, there are two kingdoms. And the government should not dare to violate the sphere of the Church and Heaven. For Obama, government IS the savior. Government is a surrogate for God. Government has no limits. And I defy that ungodly mindset to my dying breath.

  9. Michael Eden Says:

    I went ahead and allowed this just to show hot utterly warped some people truly are.

  10. Scarlett Says:

    I agree 100% with B.Taylor!
    He brought up the points I have been trying to bring up wth my many Christan friends (Or so they say they are). We really need to pray for Obama and hope he turns over a new leaf. Ranting wont get us any where. :)

  11. Michael Eden Says:

    Scarlett,
    I know you mean well, but I want you to realize that you have phrased your argument in a way that you can’t lose (“ranting won’t get us anywhere”).

    I would argue that we need to stand up and fight for what is right. We need to be willing to take a real stand, point out what our corrupt leaders are doing wrong, and hold them accountable.

    William Wiburforce “ranted” for years before he finally – nearly singlehandedly – started the movement that ended slavery. He “ranted” himself to exhaustion – and died three days after his “ranting” resulting in slavery being abolished in England.

    The idea that we should “pray” and “hope” – as opposed to standing up for what is right – is itself a form of sugar-coated evil. I remember a line from a Keith Green song, “Asleep in the light”: “‘Cause He brings people to your door, and you turn them away, as you smile and say, ‘God bless you, be at peace,’ and all heaven just weeps.”

    I’m glad you’re praying for God to change Obama and hoping he turns a new leaf. That’s really nice of you. In the meantime, in addition to my prayers, I am going to work to oppose abortion, the radical homosexual agenda, Darwinism, and the Marxist/socialist social agenda that is clearly being imposed anew on this country. I am going to stand up for the principles, the worldview, the morality of the Bible and try to fight the good fight as best I can.

  12. Demolishun Says:

    Pray like it is up to God AND work like it is up to you.

    Faith is acting upon absolute principles. If you want to fix the country you must talk to your neighbors and wage war against the media machine. You are on an education system that is designed to make you think like a socialist. The fact that many people think they are entitled to a job is socialistic.

    History will show (and has shown) that the free market capitalism that is protected by the Constitution is what makes us free. The ability to succeed and fail is extremely important for the human soul. We have become soft in our misplaced compassion for those unwilling to take care of themselves. It is a choice we make everyday. The daily choices we make as a people is why this country is where it is at. We must take responsibility for that and blame no one. Start making new choices that have the deliberate intent to restore this country to its moral center.

    Like it or not Obama IS the result of OUR choices over the past 100 years. However, at any time we can make the decision not to partake in the problem. “How?”, you ask.

    First of all, debt (as in money) is servitude to the master of compounding interest. When your life revolves around paying bills then money has become your master. If you want to be free then you must find a vehicle to get free. Also, you must put yourself on a regiment of self development to discover the giant within each and every one of you. Finally, encourage every person you meet to do the same. Invite them to your party. Once you have started those three things you will be on a path to developing affluence and influence. Education is the key. You cannot legislate morality.

    Remember EVERYTHING you do has consequences. We are a nation that watches bad things on TV and wishes it would go away. Our minds fill with negative and it becomes reality. Guess what, if you fill your mind with positive principled based information your life will get better. You will be more likely to act on those principles and be part of the solution.

    You CAN make a difference. We face a Goliath in our political system, but the solution is in the homes across our nation. We still have the right to control our information sources and still have the right to assemble. Use those rights or lose them!

    I pray for our president for his conversion, but I pray more that YOU will take what I have presented to heart. God bless you.

  13. Michael Eden Says:

    Demolishun,
    Well, your prayer worked on ME, anyway. I read through your comment in complete agreement – and appreciate your contribution.

    Free market capitalism was conceived and implemented by Christians going back to the monks who not only sold things they made, but wrote the theories behind capitalism. As the system worked out, Christian thinkers recognized that we are fallen sinners; that we are greedy and selfish. And rather than ignore that fallen nature (as utopias invariably do), they recognized that the best solution was to harness greed for the greater good. To wit, create a system where the market serves the needs of the people. It one merchant steals, people will take their business to a more honest merchant. And merchants would begin to charge less, and make better products, and better serve the market, for the sake of their business and their profits. As a system, capitalism recognizes the core fallibility of human nature and seeks to steer that selfish nature toward as positive of an end as possible. No other system even comes close.

    I won’t take the time to keep commenting on all the great points you made, but I appreciate them – and you for making them :)

    I would pick at ONE thing you said: legislating morality. While I agree with you on a certain level, I would point out that EVERY law is an attempt to impose a moral view. This behavior is good, and this one bad. EVERY law does that. And so Christians cannot simply leave the field in legislation. Because the more we abandon legislation, the more the other side WILL legislate EVIL. And evil laws are tyranny. To require a man to do wrong, and prohibit him from doing right, under the force and penalty of law, is tyranny. The founding fathers were clear: the more religious and moral a people were, the fewer laws they would need to control their behavior. But when they were confronted with tyrannous legislation, they fought to throw that yoke off. And I believe we need to stand ready and willing to do the same.

    And may God bless you as well.

  14. Demolishun Says:

    “Christians cannot simply leave the field in legislation.”
    You are absolutely right on that point. What I was getting at was there is no lasting change if the people don’t have the moral basis to maintain that change. If for instance abortion were made illegal because the definition of a human being was defined as the sperm fertilizing the egg (conception) that would be a hollow victory. The people who support abortion would work tirelessly to destroy, discredit, reverse the decision, etc. Yes, it would save lives in the short run and I am for that. However, the change would not stand if the population continues on its trend toward licentious lifestyles. Laws would continue to be passed to move this country dangerously close to a democracy. Once a democracy is achieved tyranny of the majority would reign resulting is oligarchy.

    To counteract that situation the majority of the focus should be on educating people by example (don’t tell me about your Jesus, show me your Jesus). Eventually nobody will want to get an abortion or want to perform one. The industry would die and we would modify our laws to reflect the sanctity of human life from conception until natural death. Long term vision is key. It all starts with one family, that becomes two, that becomes four, that becomes 8, and so on.

    To recap, laws are great if they can be maintained. Our constitution is wholly ineffective for an immoral people. The founding fathers knew this and stated as such when they were asked what sort of government they had created, “A republic madam, if you can keep it.”

  15. Michael Eden Says:

    Glad to hear you agree – and I’m not in the slightest bit surprised that you do, given your earlier wise comment.

    A truly moral and religious people would need no laws at all. A truly amoral and irreligious people would need a totalitarian state to prevent their evil from turning into anarchy.

    And bad people will always work to throw off good laws and impose bad laws in their place.

    I believe we have to fight on numerous fronts – and certainly on all the ones you have described, in the way that you have described them.

    A list of comments from our founding fathers:

    “We have no government armed with the power capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and true religion. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
    – John Adams

    “…And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion…reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”
    – George Washington, Farewell Address, Sept 17, 1796

    “Religion and good morals are the only solid foundations of public liberty and happiness.”
    – Samuel Adams, Letter to John Trumbull, October 16, 1778

    “The great pillars of all government and of social life [are] virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor…and this alone, that renders us invincible.”
    – Patrick Henry, Letter to Archibald Blair, January 8, 1789

    “Without morals, a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion…are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.”
    – Charles Carroll (signer of the Constitution), Letter to James McHenry,November 4, 1800

    “Religion is the only solid basis of good morals; therefore education should teach the precepts of religion, and the duties of man towards God.”
    – Life of Gouverneur Morris, Vol III

    “Let divines and philosophers, statesmen and patriots, unite their endeavors to renovate the age, by impressing the minds of men with the importance of educating their little boys and girls, of inculcating in the minds of youth the fear and love of the Deity…in short of leading them in the study and practice of the exalted virtues of the Christian system.“
    – Samuel Adams, Letter to John Adams, October 4, 1790

    “In contemplating the political institutions of the United States, I lament that we waste so much time and money in punishing crimes, and take so little pains to prevent them. We profess to be republicans and yet we neglect the only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government. That is, the universal
    education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by the means of the Bible.”
    – Benjamin Rush, “A Defense of the Use of the Bible as a School Book”, 1798

    “In my view, the Christian Religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government, ought to be instructed…no truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian Religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.”
    – Noah Webster, Reply to David McClure, Oct. 25, 1836

    “Information to those who would remove (or move) to America”: “To this may be truly added, that serious Religion under its various Denominations, is not only tolerated, but respected and practised. Atheism is unknown there, Infidelity rare & secret, so that Persons may live to a great Age in that Country without having their Piety shock’d by meeting with either an Atheist or an Infidel. And the Divine Being seems to have manifested his Approbation of the mutual Forbearance and Kindness with which the different Sects treat each other, by the remarkable Prosperity with which he has been pleased to favour the whole Country.”
    – Ben Franklin, 1787 pamphlet to Europeans

    “Independent of its connection with human destiny hereafter, the fate of republican government is indissolubly bound up with the fate of the Christian religion, and a people who reject its holy faith will find themselves the slaves of their own evil passions and of arbitrary power.”
    – Lewis Cass, A Brigadier-General in the War of 1812, Governor of the Michigan Territory, a Secretary of War, a Senator, a Secretary of State. The State of Michigan placed his statue in the U.S. Capitol’s Statuary Hall.

    “God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift of God? That they are not to violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.” – “Yes, we did produce a near perfect Republic. But will they keep it, or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the surest way to destruction.”
    – Thomas Jefferson

    “So irresistible are these evidences of an intelligent and powerful Agent that, of the infinite numbers of men who have exited thro’ all the time, they have believed, in the proportion of a million at least to Unit, in the hypothesis of an eternal pre-existence of a creator, rather than in that of a self-existent Universe.”
    – Thomas Jefferson

    “I shall need, too, the favor of that Being in whose hands we are, who led our fathers, as Israel of old, from their native land and planted them in a country flowing with all the necessaries and comforts of life; who has covered our infancy with His providence and our riper years with His wisdom and power, and to whose goodness I ask you to join in supplications with me that He will so enlighten the minds of your servants, guide their councils, and prosper their measures that whatsoever they do shall result in your good, and shall secure to you the peace, friendship, and approbation of all nations.”
    – Thomas Jefferson

    “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports…In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens…”
    – George Washington, Farewell Address, Sept 17, 1796

    “Statesmen, my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for liberty, but it is Religion and Morality alone, which can establish the Principles upon which Freedom can securely stand.”
    – John Adams, Letter of June 21, 1776

    “It is impossible to account for the creation of the universe without the agency of a Supreme Being.” — George Washington

    “So irresistable are these evidences of an intelligent and powerful Agent that, of the infinite numbers of men who have exited thro’ all the time, they have believed, in the proportion of a million at least to Unit, in the hypothesis of an eternal pre-existence of a creator, rather than in that of a self-existent Universe.” — Thomas Jefferson

    “I can see how it might be possible for a man to look down upon earth and be an atheist, but I cannot conceive how he could look up into the heavens and say there is no God.” — Abraham Lincoln

    Obama is extreemly well educated in his field being a lawyer most of our government “The People” are in control!

  17. Michael Eden Says:

    John,

    I read this twice and frankly have no idea at all what you’re saying.

  18. tim Says:

    First message in the thread…I appreciate the quotes. However, you did not even follow the contexts of the quote. Really?!? Do not allow your social agenda get in the way of the real issues we face as Americans. Our political parties are a farce. They say what they must to secure a job, while many Americans cannot even find one. Never forget, the government is appointed by the people. It is us who should be in charge of our own destinies. Not government and big corporations with money and power. Do not get caught up in the stupid bipartisan crap which drives the majority of of Americans into a darker hole.

  19. Michael Eden Says:

    Tim,

    I have no idea what your criticism is. First of all, which quote? Second of all, what is “context I should have followed”? You waved your hand in such a general, dismissive way your comment could almost be one of those robo-comments.

    That said, I regularly hear from you “a pox on both parties” types. The fact of the matter is that there is such a profound and fundamental difference between the Republican and Democrat Parties – consider right now the Republicans passing a balanced budget amendment-supporting bill and the Democrats doing everything they can to continue the reckless spending – that it is positively unreal. Did you like the massive stimulus? Republicans almost unanimously opposed it. Did you like ObamaCare? Republicans almost unanimously opposed it. Do you want to have your life heavily taxed and regulated because of your “carbon emissions”? Only Republicans stand in the way of that. So on and so on.

    And what is your heroic alternative to the Republican Party? What have YOU done? What are you GOING to do to stop the Democrats from imposing a Marxist society here???

    You are FAR more part of the problem than you are the solution because you sit there and bitch and nitpick at Republicans when REPUBLICANS ARE THE ONLY SLIM CHANCE THIS NATION HAS GOT.

  20. Ramond Gonzalaz Says:

    A wide array of opinions people convert from one religion to another constantly.Are you contending that people are more easily swayed from your religion since Obama would stay a Muslim for ever.Also I don’t not believe African Americans believe he is a messiah they are just happy after a long period of being spat on by history and not having equal rights that their youth has something to look to as a positive role mode.Also I all laws should go through scrutiny and judgement everything should be questioned if there is a way to make things better do so.The world has to change and with that rules and laws have to change especially as there are social changes such as with women in 1919 they got voting rights so things in society has to alter.All men are created equal but tho that statement existed women didn’t have all the rights of men till 1919.Please be more skeptical about your thought process and never use your beliefs to make decisions.

  21. Michael Eden Says:

    Ramond Gonzalaz,

    A few things:

    1) I never say in this article – and in fact have NEVER said – that Barack Obama is a Muslim. I HAVE stated only that Obama is absolutely NOT a Christian.

    When Obama has talked about his belief in “collective salvation,” he definitively documented that he has nothing to do with the teaching of Christ. Christian Salvation is an individual matter of FAITH and has nothing in common with what Obama believes.

    You wrong me and wrong the truth when you falsify straw men and insinuate that I said things that in fact I never have said.

    2) Further, while I believe many liberals DO regard Obama as “messiah,” I never say here and never HAVE said that it’s “African Americans who believe Obama is a messiah.” The Obama messiah thing isn’t a “black thing,” but rather a LIBERAL thing of which black people are merely one segment.

    Again, you wrong me and wrong the truth when you fabricate straw men that I in fact have nothing to do with.

    There’s evidence galore that Obama views himself as a messiah figure and has his key political operatives out depicting him as a messiah:

    The last two come from the media – which are so in Obama’s corner it is beyond propaganda and approaching religious devotion.

    I can also cite plenty of evidence that this “messiahship” is accorded to Obama by many top black figures:

    And, oh yeah, there’s this one:

    That video ought to terrify anybody who views it. And it proves you are completely wrong.

    With all due respect, I believe I have more than adequate grounds for what I’m saying.

    You simply cannot show me anything close to that coming from George W. Bush or his top political aides or the media or Republicans. We didn’t worship Bush the way liberals very clearly worship Obama.

    Part of the reason for that is that conservatives believe in God and therefore in individual responsibility and liberals believe in human government and therefore the abandonment of individual responsibility.

    There have been OTHER racial minorities who were rather brutally treated in America, such as the Chinese who were for all practical purposes slave laborers for the railroads. They banded together in their tight communities. The difference between them and blacks is that the Chinese didn’t demand an entitlement culture, and as a result they became self-sustaining and they thrived like black people NEVER will until they abandon virtually their entire worldview.

    You talk about black people and women. You DO know that both groups have fared terribly under Obama, don’t you? Take a look at black unemployment during Bush’s presidency and during Obama’s presidency before you deny reality.

    So, all I can do is give you some advice: Please be more skeptical about your thought process and never use your beliefs to make decisions.
