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.

With all due respect, I must ask some questions, because I can not understand your point.
Do you think it Godly to support a government that encourages the murder of the unborn? Molech?
Is there no teaching that tells us to be the salt and the light? What happens to the lukewarm?
From my very limited understanding we are to spread the Good News, and we may be persecuted for doing so. Is this a wrong interpretation?

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.
Sure I can Dave,
try this on for size...

You blame the MSM for distorting the message of Cruz and Rubio, yet if that message was so popular and persausive then last election, or the one before that, should have been a tidal wave for Tea Party Conservative Libertarians, but it wasn't.

You blame the IRS for preventing the message from getting out, yet if that message were more inportnat than the anonymity of their donors these groups would find the way to get the message out, besides at some point if the message is worth spit people we carry it forward regardless of IRS charity status.

As I said at the start, you blame everyone else for the failures of the Conservative Libertarian message when in fact if the message were worth while it would carry itself. People would suport it regardless of tax deductible status, people would carry it without pay or obligation, people would want to share it with their friends and neighbors.

But that's not happening, is it.

Nope, instead, your a minority in a minority party, wondering why more folks don't see things your way..

Don't you love it ?

Right Wing Wacko Cruz admits publicly that once Americans get ObamaCare up and running, they'll never, ever, want to give it up.

Having lost the elections in our democracy, thanks Right Wingers for using terroristic tactics to destroy America to stop the people from getting what they voted for.

Cruz on Hannity;

Right before he bragged that he isn’t “housetrained,” Cruz laid out the Green Eggs and Ham scenario, telling Hannity “If we don’t do it (defund Obacare) now, in all likelihood, Obamacare will never, ever be repealed. Why is that? Because on January 1, the exchanges kick in, the subsidies kick in,” and added that “their plan is to get the American people addicted to the sugar, addicted to the subsidies, and once that happens, in all likelihood, it never gets…”

The fiction of Obamacare 'rate shock'
Politicians want to scare us, but early returns indicate Affordable Care Act will save money for many
By Wendell Potter

http://www.publicintegrity.org/2013/09/03/132...

...Health insurance executives were hoping wed swallow their scare campaign on rates, and thus get behind efforts by their friends in Congress to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Many of those friends, like Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., are members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which sent out a press release on March 14 with the headline:Obamacare Oversight: The Looming Premium Rate Shock.

The next day, that committee held a hearing entitled:Unaffordable: Impact of Obamacare on Americas Health Insurance. During that hearing, at which I testified, Blackburn read a long list of what she claimed were names of businesses in her district that had experienced Obamacare rate shock.

Skeptical, I sent Rep. Blackburn a letter asking if I could see those letters and help her determine if Obamacare was really the blame or if, possibly, and more likely, those businesses insurance carriers were just gouging them. Five and a half months later, Im still waiting on a response. Even though Im from Tennessee too.

...The number of rate shock stories declined as state after state disclosed over the summer what insurance companies will actually charge for policies next year. Those disclosures have shown that not only will premiums not skyrocket when Obamacares most important consumer protections kick in on January 1, most Americans who buy coverage on their states online marketplaces will get better deals than they can today.

A study published last week by the Rand Corporation, a research group, is also helping to show that the rate shock hype was just that: hype.

Rand researchers said that although prices will vary from state to state, Obamacare will not increase premiums overall. Yes, some people, smokers in particular and folks enrolled in policies with benefits so meager they will be outlawed next year, will have to pay more. But most Americans who will be buying coverage in the marketplaces (also known as exchanges) will be eligible for tax credits that will make their coverage more affordable and, in many cases, cheaper than what is available today. Dont expect a press release from the House Energy and Commerce Committee about that.

Another study released earlier this month also indicated that Obamacare has not been the cause of recent rate increases. The Kaiser Family Foundations annual survey of employer-based insurance showed that over the past year, premiums for family coverage increased just 4 percent. While 4 percent is still a hefty increase for many workers, its far less than the double-digit increases that were common in previous years.

The Republican party has voted to repeal Obamacare 41 times.(is that the latest number?).

Now they've shut down the government over the issue - when their job is to pay our bills and keep the government operating.

While the GOP continues to serve their masters and their misguided and uneducated followers - America suffers. Again -

How long will we put up with this Tea-Party nonsense? America has just about had enough of these clowns.

If you need chiropractic care, you had better get it fast. There won't be many left in business after the full implementation of obama's socialized medicine.
Seems the insurance rates for those nasty, filthy rich chiropractors will quadruple soon.
You'll get to keep your policy if you like it provided you are willing to pay the much higher costs of premiums. If you decide not to renew through your employer sponsored program and go out to the exchange you will get no tax break. By the way, if you should qualify for the tax credit, keep in mind you'll pay up front and have to wait for the tax credit next year. That is of course unless the president decides that we just can't afford to keep those tax credits in place.
Won't make much difference either way, there will be very few doctors left in practice and those that are will answer to the rationing board.

Logical!??!?!?!? Coming from you, gimme a break. This is what is logical and makes sense, shutting down government again?? What makes sense was for the Republicans in congress to ignore the idiot fringe of the party and work a deal, give a little take a little. They have no interest, they are trying to assure their individual place in Congress in the next cycle, or they are plain stupid. They have tried to kill the health care bill with no success and no real expectation of success. They rant on the floor of the House for 22 hours, just to get TV time, NO other reason.
All they have done is insure another Democrat elected President. Remember the last time Republican's pulled such a stupid stunt. They had Clinton on the ropes and very fearful of defeat in the next election. But due to the tremendous blunder by Republicans he won again. And again they make the same mistake assuring whoever runs on the Dem side a victory. History repeats itself and you and yours are to blame both times.
Don't you feel proud, insuring your own defeat. Its the 2nd
stupidest thing the Republicans have done in recent memory. Hilary thanks you, you know she will run now!! I actually was hoping for a sane outcome, I am ready for another try at a Republican President you people just can't get it together, a shame.

Calm down, my little Obama-worshiping buddy.....:(
This is just a political ploy to take the attention off of the main objective, of Obama and his gang of RINOs. Which is to grant amnesty to millions of Democratic voters. The RINOs in the House and that devil worshiping demon Pelosi, are working feverishly under the radar to accomplish this goal.
http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory/hous...
They are able to do this by all the confusion caused by Obama and his minions in the Senate over this pointless battle. Boehner tryed to stop this shutdown, this morning, by offering to go to conference. Reid knows they have the votes to get what Obama wants in conference, but Pelosi isn't expected to announce the new amnesty bills in the House until Oct. 5. Look for the shutdown to last till then.(IMO)
Pelosi and the RINOs in the House, like, Goodlatte and Cantor, are trying to force the house into conference. They know Republicans will be forced into amnesty there as well too. Looks like to me Obama will accomplish his goals and destroy this country. But that's just my opinion.

Obama and the Senate will not cave to the blackmailing Kock Bros Tea Party members period. They may as well bend over and kiss their lying little buts good bye. I know that most of Americans have had enough of this childish crap. Get rid of them once and for all in 2014. I will sure help all I can in any way to enlighten everything I know about them Publically. They were losers when they cam in and will be losers when they leave.
