Please think about it, pray for God's Kingdom. Support the government that will bring blessings not just to this country but the whole world.(Daniel 2:44)
With all due respect, your tone is rather hostile from the get go - why presume you will be met with negative responses. And you are rather contradictory to go from saying Christians should be neutral to calling for support of a govt. "that will bring blessings."
I agree with you completely that God's Kingdom is the goal, but in the meantime we are living in this world and, in my opinion, we have a responsibility to our children to vote for those leaders who we believe will make the best decisions for this country - and, also my opinion, who will make decisions that are, hopefully, far more in keeping with Christian values - recognizing that not all Americans are Christian, but believing that all are better off when Christian values are supported.

@ Aggie,

You are so right, the common sense doctor never stood a chance in Illinois, famous for corrupt politicians. Never a chance.

Here's a clue, I don't need the MSM to tell me about the Tea Party, I just read what it's supporters post on Topix - tells the whole story in a NUT shell, or maybe that should be two nut shells, eh teabaggers.
You need somebody to tell you what to think as you obviously can't think clearly on your own. You are a typical socialist liberal. The proof is that you can't give a real factual argument and you always start name calling if you are losing.

Not winning elections isn't a problem for Right Wingers.
Just like Al Queda, they just use terrorism and threaten to destroy America's economy when they lose elections.
When you hate democracy it's easy.
There you go again. More liberal name calling. Feeling threatened by the American dream?

Ain't it a shame, Obama handled Syria and Iran without managing to get 5,000 American troops killed, or spend $ 6 Trillion Dollars.
So disappointing to Right Wingers who love those wars they never fight and refuse to pay for.
You make me laugh. I think you mean Putin handled Syria and Iran and pulled Obama out of a desperate corner. Oh, that's right. Obama gave a speech taking credit after Putin handled it for him. Even the left wing news media recognized the truth.

+1 Great post!
I will tell you the message that I got from reading the post from Good-News. If you don't like Obama and his administration you are a racist. Well that one is getting old so now it is, If you don't like Obama and his administration and the ways things are being done then you can't be a true Christian. Just ignore all the corruption, lies, and deceit and sit down and shut up. Then you will be a good Christian and Jesus will love you. Perhaps it is worth a try.

Another day, another article about the possible pitfalls of Obamacare. Why is it SO impossible to postpone the implementation for one year????? It seems logical.

Better yet postpone the implementation forever. It is the worst and most unconstitutional bill that I have ever heard of. Written by idiots, authored by lobbyists and professional socialists.

I agree, the tone was way, way off. She's new, as religion is very rarely discussed on this forum. Of course, unless, it's radical Islamists. Sounds more like fake words directed to someone she has deep issues with. Maybe a therapist could help ease some of that anger. She sounds anything but neutral.

That would be great, but it's the LAW now. Postponing it for a year would give those who are confused a chance to understand what they are in for. Last I heard, only one state actually had the exchanges ready. That was a few days ago. On the other hand, if it DOES turn out to be chaos and debauchery, won't it be GREAT to watch the libs implode. They STILL won't turn on Obama. What 'cha wanna bet? They'll somehow blame the mean 'ole Republicans.

Good news-Bad news

The good news first......
The House is playing the demos for suckers. They will eventually give in on obamacare after a short gubmint shutdown.
Reason being--to show the voters they tried their best to delay or eliminate obamacare.
They will use the big stick of higher healthcare cost next year to win in the November vote for office.

Many workers are losing health care from their employees, by hours being cut, put on part time work schedule, and companies no longer offering healthcare coverage, dumping everyone onto obamacare.

Hence this brings the Bad news....
low paid workers with no health coverage, hours of working cut, loss of income, and all the other problems with less money, higher food prices, higher costs across the board.

Again this shows the Demos are heartless, and the Repubs will use this big stick to stick it to the Demos next November.

I feel for the folks hardship, but have shouts of joy because the voters are gonna turn against the libroid demos big time next year...

There may even be blood in the street and at Demo party gatherings next year.

ROFL @ all the dummy libroids...

Thank you for your response. Unfortunately, the written word does not carry the inflection of the voice, I meant no hostility. The neutrality is in reference to earthly governments and as I mentioned previously my comments come from scripture. Revelations (see chapters 16-18) calls the leaders of the world governments "kings of the earth" and God is not pleased with them. Again, please read sincerity in my voice.:)
My apologies for misinterpreting your "tone."

While I agree with your post...
I'm perplexed with your last sentence.
Are you saying mankind has control over when God's Kingdom will come?? And will it only come when mankind fully supports it??

I'm looking at the cost of medical healthcare this morning, and it aint pretty in the high costs over this years health cost.

For instance, I looked at several plans for 2013 and for 2014. I'm seeing anywhere from a 60% increase all the way to a 100% increase in health costs because of obamacare and companies dropping health care for employees...

A couple of plans have a 125% increase.
