"Socialism", is that your answer to why you said President Obama has an "anti-American agenda".
Very well then, please explain the exact actions of this President that draws you to that conclusion.
These are a few statements on socialism I found on Wikipedia so TIFWIW. A socialist economic system consists of a system of production and distribution organised to directly satisfy economic demands and human needs, so that goods and services are produced directly for use instead of for private profit driven by the accumulation of capital. There are many varieties of socialism and there is no single definition encapsulating all of them. Now to answer your question; Obamacare, taxing the rich to give to the poor, and a big government that invades any and all aspects of our lives that they can get their hands on just to name a few.

Side step the truth in whatever fashion makes you feel fuzzy inside Barney. The truth is, you can look at the Constitution on the surface and conclude that it's creation was without God or you can learn the history of those who wrote the Constitution and you can come to no other conclusion than it is truly a God inspired document full of Christian principles that come directly from the Bible. Be blind if you wish but that doesn't change the truth.
I came to a different conclusion than you did, and I based my opinion on history, where as judging from prior comments you are getting your history from some interpretation of an author who has been clearly proven wrong in his attempt to rewrite history.

Being you avoided the question of your source of that three to four hours of prayer, I know damn well where you got it.

You seem to have a problem remembering what you posted.

Tell me something, if The Christian faith is why there is no mention of God in the Constitution, is it the Christian faith the chaplains for the Senate and the house are paid by U.S. tax payer dollars.
Don't you think some Christian soldiers would have done that job for free. If you do, you better read a little history.
Maybe God was pissed he was left out of the constitution and told them Christian soldiers not to do it for free.
At best it is hypocritical, not to mention unconstitutional, paying the clergy with Tax payer dollars, when the separation of church is clearly written.
You do know God approves of wealth don't you? Since you aren't a Christian maybe you don't so I will give you a few examples. King Solomon was probably the wealthiest and wisest man to ever walk the earth outside of Jesus Christ. He fell out of grace with God, not because he was rich, but because of him wandering from God by agreeing to worship the pagan gods of some of his concubines. He was the son of King David who was also wealthy and very faithful to God. Job lost everything because God allowed the Devil to have free reign on Job's life but was not allowed to take Job's life. The Devil was convinced that if he was allowed free reign to do anything to Job that Job would lose faith in God so God gave the devil his wish. Job's wealth was taken, his entire family except was killed, he had boils all over his body and had to go it alone because his "friends" all thought Job did something to anger God and that is why he was experiencing his trials so they lierally sat by and said nothing to Job. After it was all said and done, God blessed Job with health, 7 children (3 daughters and 4 sons), the daughters of Job were considered to be the most beautiful in the land, he was given 140 more years of life, AND God returned his wealth two fold.
To say God doesn't approve of wealth just shows your complete ignorance of His Word. To be fair, you couldn't possibly know His Word because you don't know, or want to know, Him and that is a tragedy. The reality is that you WILL know Him one way or another before it is all said and done and it will be a tragedy if you haven't accepted Him as your personal Lord and Savior. I truly hope you thik about this and do some soul searching and at least give God a chance. However many years you are allowed to live on this earth "free" from God won't be worth an eternity in Hell. I just hope you figure that out before it's too late. God DOES love you and desperately wants to bless you in more ways than you can imagine. It's why He sent His Son to die on the cross, so that you may be saved. He won't force you to accept Him but he will allow you to reap the consequences of your decision good or bad.

I know the definition of socialism, thank you.

"taxing the rich to give to the poor"

What a crock of shit.

Personally I could not think of of a more cowardly, asinine response than that.

Socialism. If you will be honest enough with yourself and study just a little bit of American history you will find that freedom from a socialistic government is why America exists today. It's why our founders made the Declaration of Independence in the first place, it's how the tea ended up in Boston Harbor, it's how the American Revolution came about. In short, Obama is taking this country to the very place we were willing to fight and die to get away from.
If you believe the England under George the Third was a socialist society then you are a sick pup.

The Christian faith is why there is no mention of God in the Constitution whether you want to admit it or not. As a non-Christian, I wouldn't expect you to know that anyway. You look at Christianity through secular eyes which only look for ways to discredit Christianity. If you actually studied what God's word is ACTUALLY about you would find the truth though I don't expect you to make the effort. It goes back to the point I have made to you what seems like thousands of times. Stop listening to outside sources to form your opinion and look for yourself at tangible things that you see the source of the information youself. Quit relying on fabrications from politically biased sources.
Here's the thing, I don't care what you believe, how you interpret any religious text or what form of a creator sugars your tea. It's frickers like you that have caused more death and destruction throughout human history than any other non-celestial event since this earth was formed.
Give that, I would defend your right to believe that pancakes were sacred if threatened, I just want you to leave the rest of alone, not think that it is your mission to teach teach me and mine the proper way to live...and in reality, I bet many of us "libtards" live our lives with as much integrity or more than many of you bible-thumpers.

Do some think that the earth has actually been around for billions of years and that man was created because two rocks collided in space or any host of other "explinations" sicentist have gone to when their current theory is proved to be false. The current belief among the science community is parallel universes that we can't see are constantly expanding and contracting. When two of these unseen universes expand into each other a "big bang" results and this is what created the earth and all living things. Now that we have crossed over into the "believe me, it's there but you can't see it" theory, science has basically insulated itself from questions into the validity of their theory from people who aren't smart enough to understand the explination behind the scientists lies. The theory behind the original big bang of two rocks colliding was disproved because when the science community traced back the origins of life to the big bang the laws of physics simply fell apart because they couldn't facilitate such an explosion. My question is that if such an explosion couldn't be contained in the original big bang theroy then how can the current big bang theory of parallel universes be contained by the same laws of physics that couldn't contain the original big bang? C'mon Redd use some common sense.

Well, the author that you speak of has ACTUAL historic documents that are ACTUALLY on display for all to see prove otherwise in which case your OPINION is just that, an opinion. This goes back to the believe what you see and not what you hear argument I have made to you on several occasions.

I know me and I can't think of anyone that a person like me would have killed or caused their death. Since you are pointing fingers, please tell me how people like me have caused more death and destruction throughout human history. Me presenting Christianity is no different than you presenting a liberal point of view to a conservative. You can take it or leave it. As for integrity, it isn' the same as being a believer in Christ, though they do go hand-in-hand.

Tell me how much money did it cost you to see those " ACTUAL historic documents"

Did you see any formal documents supporting the authenticity of the "ACTUAL historic documents"

You see, I believe in illusions, can't always believe what you see.
