One way or another, I am going to get out of day-to-day political blogging after this election.
I’ve said it before. All the way back on April 29, 2009, I said to someone in replying to a comment:
I never intended to remain in political blogging this long. I thought I’d blog through the election, do my best to prevent this country from choosing this terrible man, and stop.
But it’s just been one outrage piled on top of another – so many you literally can’t cover them all. And I demand that there be a record of these outrages.
Whether Obama wins or whether Romney wins, I’m getting out of politics after this election. I’ll continue to blog, but I’ll be done with politics.
If Obama wins, frankly Obama’s God damn America will deserve whatever hell it descends into. I will have done the best I could do trying to warn people that Obama is leading us to hell, and if he gets re-elected I will be done with warnings. I’ll warn you while you’re pouring gasoline on yourself; I’ll warn you when you strike a match; but when you set yourself on fire you’re on your own. If Romney wins, I’m frankly just not going to carry water for him. I’ll vote for him as the lesser of two evils, but he’s not exactly the guy I’m going to spend the next four years carrying water for.
So I hope no one thinks that this announcement implies that I think Obama’s going to win and can’t face liberals anymore and blah, blah, blah.
Basically, my reasoning is this: if Obama is reelected, I did everything I could to try to warn you fools. And if a nation is foolish enough to reelect a president with the record of failure that Barack Obama has now accumulated, well, that is a nation that is immune to wisdom or warning and my conscience is clean as I shake the dust of the coming economic implosion off my feet and ride off into the sunset. On the other hand, if Mitt Romney is elected, well, his entire history (contrary to liberals’ demonization of him) is that of a moderate RINO and while he’s got the singular virtue of being “far better than Obama,” he’s not someone I want to devote thousands of hours carrying water for. If Sarah Palin were president, if Herman Cain were president, well, maybe I’d buckle the armor back on and keep fighting for them.
There is a personal cost for an evangelical Christian conservative to dive into political blogging. Politics is by its very nature an angry place. It very quickly becomes mud wrestling. And it was simply never a place that I wanted to spend my life fighting in. I certainly don’t want to keep dealing with fools and I certainly don’t want to keep screaming at people every day.
What got me into blogging to begin with? I saw those Jeremiah Wright sermon tapes – “No, no, no! NOT God bless America! God DAMN America!” – and I knew that Barack Obama was truly an evil man to have spent 23 years of his life in that Marxist, racist, anti-American hellhole and then climbing out of that toxic nest of demons and dusting himself off only when it became convenient to his political charade. I had a vision of America under the leadership of this evil man; and sadly enough it looked very much like what I now see all around me today. In some ways it’s not as terrible as I feared it would be, and in other ways it’s five times worse than I feared it would be.
I got into political blogging with the intent of 1) preserving a record of what Obama did to America, because the mainstream media refuses to do it and quickly purges the few things they DO print; 2) to try to explain both liberalism and conservatism so that people can see why the former is depraved and the latter is the best worldview for a moral and free people; and 3) to provide arguments and document the facts as I present them to try to help those who have their own arguments with their own circles of influence.
Let me just say that the future does not look bright for America, even if Romney wins. Yes, we have a $16 trillion debt, and yes, Obama has piled on $6 trillion of that debt in only four years after the hypocrite demonized Bush for adding $4 trillion over eight years. But that isn’t anything close to our real debt. Our real debt is over $222 trillion and skyrocketing.
But even THAT isn’t our real debt, because our real debt is that more-than-$222 trillion-and-skyrocketing figure PLUS the debt of our states. California alone has an unfunded liberal union pension gap of $500 billion. And Illinois alone has an unfunded liberal union pension gap of $210 billion. And we are seeing deadbeat states that cannot pay their debts and we are seeing cities going bankrupt.
Our real debt would be impossible to estimate even if all the liberal politicians who have bankrupted their jurisdictions at every level would honestly account for what they did. And rest assured they never will until after it’s too late.
The Bible tells us in Revelation chapter six that the beast, the Antichrist, is coming. We find that a global economic collapse is coming; we find that in the midst of this ghastly global landscape there will be famine and plagues and war and mass death. And what we literally see is this big government false messiah called “the beast” riding in on a white horse to save the day. And the world will literally worship him for his “deliverance” as he steps in with one plan of action after another. They will so worship him that they will allow him to take over the world political system and the economic activity of every single human being on earth.
It is amazing how badly things are going in America and how little reporting is being done on how badly things are going. The labor participation rate has plummeted every single year under Obama and is now at a more than 31-year low (i.e., worse than it EVER was under Bush). In fact, if we measured unemployment by the labor participation rate that Bush handed off to Obama, our unemployment rate would be 11.6% now rather than dropping to 8.1% because we refuse to measure the millions of discouraged workers who have abandoned hope of finding a job. For every job Obama “adds,” there are FOUR workers who drop out of the workforce. There are 4 million fewer jobs than there were when Obama took office, in spite of the fact that 4 million Americans turn 18 and thus “age in” to the work force every single year. Last year new start-up businesses were at the lowest level EVER measured in the 25-year history of recording that statistic; this year new start-up businesses plunged by another 24%. And the median household income has plunged 8.2% under Obama’s failed leadership. And, amazingly, household incomes have dropped TWICE as much under Obama as they did during the 2008 recession, just to document what a horrible job Obama has done since. And with statistics such as the 13.2% plunge in durable goods in one month - which is the biggest drop since January 2009 – there is no reason to think things are going to get better under Obama’s policies.
If Obama is reelected, we are going to go on a ride to hell as a nation:
Only there will be no going back up this time.
And yes, if you want to give the above picture a racial element, it is also true that blacks and Hispanics and college graduates and young people and women and those groups that have most supported Obama have fared the WORST under his failed policies. It’s almost as if Obama is saying, “I hurt you bad these last four years; vote for me again and I will finish you off and kill you dead in my next four years.” And his supporters are saying, “Thank you, messiah! It’s what we deserve!”
If the media fairly and accurately reported the truth, Obama wouldn’t have a chance. But our media has descended into shocking levels of dishonest propaganda. And bad people always choose to believe lies. And if there are more bad people than good people now in America, we will vote for hell and we will get the hell that we voted for once and for all this time.
Things are also going terribly for Europe. If America goes, Europe goes, and vice versa.
And if you look at China, things aren’t going nearly as well (see also here) as the false facade that they – like the Obama media – have plastered over their “news” coverage. And if China goes down hill, well, whose going to keep buying our increasingly worthless debt???
This world has chosen socialism; and socialism is a cancer. It is a cancer on morality and it is a cancer on economic health. When people say as a nation that they deserve other people’s money and that they are willing to attack job creators to rob them, you get fewer and fewer jobs and all that really gets “redistributed” is pain and misery.
So the beast is coming. As I’ve said over and over and over again on this blog.
If Obama is president on January 20, 2013, we’re going to get the beast in short order; if Romney is president, we may have a few more years as he slows (but does not stop) the collapse.
Mitt Romney may well win. But what has he shown in his past that indicates that he will stand up and fight for the radical changes this nation will need to survive? Obviously, I hope I’m wrong in my estimation of Romney; I hope that he wins and that his is the “second Reagan presidency” we so desperately need. And as I’ve said before I would crawl out of my death-bed across broken glass to vote for Mitt Romney and vote OUT Obama.
America could very well collapse in the next few years. When it happens it will happen fast; “economic experts” will assure the people on the mainstream media that everything will be fine the evening before, and then the people will wake up to find out that their country has literally collapsed under their feet while they slept. But when I consider the structural, fiscal, economic realities facing America, I simply cannot understand how it could possibly survive for 20 years given our pathological refusal to rise up and solve our problems in the powerful manner that we need in order to have any chance at long-term national survival.
I believe that a true conservative president and a true conservative Congress could stop the collapse by having the courage to ignore the media lies and doing what is necessary to save America. But I also believe that American people are now past the point where they are willing to do the right thing even to save their own lives. Instead, we’ll keep voting ourselves more benefits until we reach the collapse-stage that Europe is in, and then we’ll riot over the necessary austerity measures that would take away some of our benefits. Until the depression when nation after nation collapses into total anarchy as Revelation chapter 6 describes and the beast comes riding in.
When the beast takes over the government, he will be a man who seems to have all the answers. His policies will seem to take the world back from the brink that failed leaders like Obama brought us to. But in just a few years, the Antichrist will go from promising a Utopia to delivering a literal hell on earth. And when the REAL Messiah, Jesus Christ, returns as King of kings and as Lord of lords as the Bible describes, it will be to prevent the planet from literally destroying itself.
That’s the direction I will be taking this blog in. While I will continue to interact with current political events, it will largely be as part of an effort to inform readers about the message of Bible prophecy and how the events we keep seeing are bringing the world closer and closer to the last days scenario so accurately foretold in Scripture. In addition to that, I will also simply be returning more to my Christian theology roots and writing about the faith.
As a student and teacher of Bible prophecy, I DO believe in what is frequently derided as “newspaper prophecy.” That is, I believe that when the events described in Bible prophecy are fulfilled, they will be fulfilled in a way that a person at the time would read in a good newspaper. The thing is, if you don’t understand the Bible, and economics, and politics, and military issues, you will most likely use the wrong newspaper and thus get your understanding of prophecy wrong. As a simple illustration of what I’m trying to convey here, consider that many people believed during World War I and World War II that they were living in the last days when (as we obviously know now) they weren’t. On the one hand, it was true that somebody during those periods could have read their Bible and read their newspapers, and seen things in their newspapers that very much seemed to be described in their Bibles. But on the other hand, there was one singularly critical event that had not yet happened - the rebirth of the state of Israel as prophesied in Ezekiel 37 – that should have told believers that, no, they were not yet in the last days. The Tribulation described in Revelation begins with the nation of Israel signing a 7-Year peace covenant with the Antichrist. And since Israel did not yet exist during World War I or World War II, a biblically-understanding Christian could know that as bad as things were, we were not yet in the last days. You need to be able to understand your Bible and match it to the what is going on in the world to accurately understand where we are in Bible prophecy.
At the same time, you need to be able to understand what is going on in the world and then match it to the Bible to understand where we are in Bible prophecy, as well. For example, Christian scholar Dr. Grant Jeffrey wrote a book titled, Final Warning: Economic Collapse and the Coming World Government. Chapter 14 of that book was titled, “The Coming Economic Collapse.” And writing back in 1995, the man just nailed the 2008 collapse – which is by no means finished with us. He understood that the dangerous derivatives market and what we were doing with mortgages could trigger a massive collapse just as occurred 13 years later and which is still undermining the economy today (unless you think we’re free and clear and there’s nothing but blue economic skies now).
The world is now a house of cards that could collapse at any time more than it has ever been. Weapons of mass destruction, modern technology and incredibly complex financial trading did not make the world less like the world described in Revelation; it made it MORE like the world described in Revelation. Think about the mark of the beast as just one example of what I’m talking about. The beast is coming and he is coming soon. And I plan to write a lot more about what the Bible has to say about the last days and why I believe we are in them after this election.
I’m sure I’ll lose some readers as I take this blog in a different direction. Maybe I’ll lose a lot of readers. Obviously, I hope I’ll gain other readers, but my primary goal is simply to stand up for my faith and for what I believe and to be true to the vision that I believe God gave me.
