GOD: THE FINAL JUDGE
A CHRISTIAN RESPONSE TO OBAMA VICTORY
Exclusive: Joel Richardson notes
'There is a day of justice' for corrupt leaders

In light of President Obama’s re-election, it is essential to briefly detail some of the reasons why Christians should rise above the depression and hopelessness that has gripped so many American conservatives.

In the afterglow of Obama’s victory, Ayman al-Zawahiri, Ayatollah Khamenei, Vladimir Putin and Chris Matthews, as well as millions of pot-heads, sodomites, pro-aborts and all common moochers, are sharing a collective thrill. The American people by a clear majority have rejected fiscal responsibility, energy independence, national security, border security, traditional family values, and worst of all, standing with the most defenseless and innocent among us. Barack Obama’s re-election is a complete political, economic, moral, social and spiritual catastrophe.

But despite the very real implications of America’s downfall, Christians have far more substantial hope and reason to remain joyful.

“By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.”[Hebrews 11:9-10]

For now, my country is governed by a man many of us feel is a truly unrighteous individual, a race-baiter, a divider, a liar, a destroyer. And while I would not suppose to truly know anyone’s heart, I do take great comfort in the fact that there is one who knows the hearts of all people and who has promised a day of justice for all of the earth. So while I will continue to stand and fight for this great nation, even believing that there is yet hope for repentance, revival and restoration, as I watch this beautiful country slip away and devolve into something almost unrecognizable, I take great comfort in knowing that a heavenly country lies ahead.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”[Romans 15:13]

Intentional Pitfall #1: Robbing Peter to Pay Paul

ObamaCare essentially 'robs Peter to pay Paul'. How?

Well, if you're a senior, you'll be fleeced by the $716 billion in Medicare cuts designed to substantially fund the ObamaCare plan over the next decade.

As you'll read in the ObamaCare Survival Guide, the biggest Medicare spending cuts will come in two key areas you need to know about in order to protect yourself.

And that's just the beginning ...

Intentional Pitfall #2: Insurance Companies Free to
Pass On Increased Costs

Under the new ObamaCare mandates, insurance companies will have free rein to pass on their increased costs to you in the form of:

Higher premiums
Higher co-pays
Higher deductibles
There are no specific price controls to keep the insurance industry in check. Even AARP, the powerful lobby representing American seniors, has already increased the health insurance premiums of its employees from 8 to 13%.

Intentional Pitfall #3: Widespread Doctor Shortage Expected

While many Americans are unhappy with ObamaCare, doctors have been particularly angry. The earning potential of doctors is expected to dwindle due to lowered payment rates for Medicare, among other things. Up to 40% of physicians could retire or seek a non-clinical or even a non-medical job.

And with 30 million more Americans on healthcare insurance plans, not only could there be a medical 'brain drain', but also long drives and long waits to see a doctor.

Intentional Pitfall #4: Delayed Implementation and
Hundreds of Unwritten Rules

Shockingly, many of the rules and regulations needed to make the new healthcare system function correctly haven't even been written yet. And as costs inevitably balloon higher than expected, benefits for consumers are likely to degrade significantly, particularly for seniors, the highest users of healthcare services.

Intentional Pitfall #5: Unelected Government Officials Will
Have Total Control to Make Decisions about Your Healthcare

"Healthcare commissars" who don't have to worry about being elected by the American people will have undemocratic, totalitarian powers to cut Medicare spending and make decisions on your behalf as a so-called Independent Payment Advisory Board.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg ...

Insurance companies who raise their rates, will have fewer customers. AARP is a corporation just like any other - if you applaud Papa Johns Pizza for 'standing up to Obama' by cutting employee hours to dodge the new rules, you should be overjoyed that AARP is exhibiting conservative 'values' as well. If doctors are in the profession for the money, they NEED to enter another profession. And Congress will STILL have control of the purse strings, regardless of the 'recommendations' of the so-called 'commissars'. Totalitarian policies? The insurance companies used to call those "Pre-exisiting Conditions."

It's a well known fact that optimists live longer than pessimists. If a glass-half-empty is your gig, more power to you - but if you lighten up, your medical costs will likely go down.

Points to ponder...

For nearly four years, Mr. Obama has presided over a revolution from above. His signature legislative accomplishment is Obamacare. Washington is poised to take over one-sixth of the economy. It will impose a command-and-control government-run health system marked by exploding costs, rationed care, massive tax increases and intrusive mandates. The law also does something else that is unprecedented — and ominous: It encodes the federal funding of abortion. Through an abortion “surcharge,” it compels religious citizens to violate their conscience rights by subsidizing the murder of unborn children. This represents a major step toward a soft tyranny, enlisting Christians to underwrite state-sanctioned infanticide. It threatens to abrogate basic individual liberties.

Once Obamacare is fully implemented in 2014, it will be almost impossible to repeal. Government health care will become interwoven into the fabric of society, as millions lose their employer-based coverage in exchange for public subsidies. Moreover, like in Europe, socialized medicine fundamentally alters the relationship between the state and its citizens. The government essentially nationalizes your body.

Yet, Obama’s drive toward a statist regime has gone much deeper than health care. His nearly $1 trillion stimulus package did nothing to engender economic growth. Rather, it stimulated unprecedented government expansion, amounting to a massive electoral bribe. Every major political constituency was paid off — the public-sector unions, government bureaucrats, environmentalists, minorities, low-income earners and community organizing groups.

His borrow-and-spend policies have led to the highest deficits in history. We are now $5 trillion more in debt. However, nearly 50 million Americans are on food stamps — a skyrocketing increase since 2008. Nearly 1 in 6 citizens live in poverty. Unemployment is chronically high. Growth is sputtering. The federal government now spends more than $1 trillion a year on welfare programs. Combined, they are the single biggest item in the budget, surpassing Social Security, Medicare and defense.

We are becoming a nation of economic deadbeats and social parasites. Obama has forged a new redistributionist order: Tax consumers are devouring the wealth of taxpaying producers. In the process, he is breeding an army — a vast electoral pool — of government dependents. Soon, America will hit the tipping point at which the productive classes are outnumbered — and outvoted —by the nonproductive ones. Our decline will be inexorable and inevitable.

The result is a country on the verge of fiscal bankruptcy. We are now the most indebted nation ever. The $16 trillion national debt is the greatest domestic threat America faces. Obama’s answer is to add another $4 trillion over the next 10 years. By his own budget estimates, we will become Greece by 2016. Obama’s soak-the-rich tax proposals are nothing more than cheap demagoguery. The most they can raise is $90 billion annually — a fraction of the mountain of debt slowly crushing us.

The Obama administration has consistently abused power and violated the Constitution in its effort to solidify big-government liberalism. The Dodd-Frank financial reform entrenched the pernicious principle of too big to fail, guaranteeing that Washington will protect large banks and giant insurance firms in case of major losses. For Obama, that taxpayers will be left holding the bag is irrelevant. The objective was reached: He succeeded in bringing entire sectors under his heel. Goldman Sachs, the auto industry, big pharmaceutical companies — almost every segment of the economy is under the direct control and supervision of the regulatory state.
