Whenever you have a political party whose foundation ideology is to oppose Christianity and God, as the liberal Democrats do, then you have entered into Spiritual warfare of the Democrats vs God.
They have achieved temporary control of a nation, and are using it as thier weapon in this Don Quioxte like crusade of thiers.
Obama, the 5 liberals on the Supreme Court, Hillary, Pelosi, Boxer, an the rest of the Democrat scum of the Earth in Washington are leading America a captive nation as the make war on God.
Who do you think will win? Will the Democrats be able to use the Federal government to beat God to death?
I dont think so.

Rush Limbaugh: Obama is Relishing the Opportunity to Put Into Play What the Leftists Have Only Dreamed About in Faculty Lounges.
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh sees a battle for the Republican Party happening right now between mainstream Republicans and true conservatives who rely on principle over politics. Meanwhile, he says that President Barack Obama is relishing the opportunity to put into play what the leftists have only dreamed about in faculty lounges for 50 to 75 years.
I mean theres a battle for the [Republican] party going on, Limbaugh told Greta Van Susteren in a rare and wide-ranging TV interview.And sure, it its it would be a tough battle. But theres no other option. I mean you dont want to go third party. Thats just that that just ensures the Democrats are a majority party forever. You dont want to do that.
So whats the solution, according to Limbaugh?
You have to do what you can to work within the Republican Party and take it over, he said.
When asked about who he admires within Republican politics, Limbaugh named Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. However, he also said he respects all politicians who are fearless and have the courage of their convictions and have no compunction about saying it.
The undisputed king of talk radio said the Democrats with the help of media are working tirelessly to destroy the reputations of those who identify with the Tea Party.
Its a never-ending battle, he reflected.
Limbaugh also blasted the slavish media that is helping Obama further his political agenda.
He can say whatever he wants and hes not getting called on it by the media. He can do pretty much everything he wants, he explained.I should add I should have added in my previous answer to your question that he couldnt get away with any of this without a slavish media, I mean the media doesnt question him, in fact it is on board with his agenda and is trying to help him advance it.
He went on to say the truth is never presented in the mainstream media, where most of the low information voters think they get what they think they know.
When asked why the media continually gives the president a pass on issues that would otherwise damage an administration nationwide, Limbaugh argued that members of the media agree with him.
Theyre him, he added.They are I think theyre all part of the elitist New York-Washington-Boston media academic corridor and they think they are Obama. They think same education, same school, same world view.
That being said, Limbaugh said the liberal media, which had enjoyed a monopoly in the industry before he and Fox News came around, realize there is now competition with the rise of online media and Fox News domination in cable news.
On President Obama, the radio host said he thinks the president likes his job and is relishing the opportunity to put into play what the leftists have only dreamed about in faculty lounges for 50 to 75 years.
I think hes thrilled with the opportunity he has to transform America and move it away from this unjust, immoral way it was founded and make it fair for everybody, I mean whatever hes trying to do, Limbaugh said.I do think hes probably obsessed and very absorbed with that.
However, he did claim that Obama doesnt like having opposition because it is beneath him.
Limbaugh also said the Democrats need a permanent underclass to hold onto their power.
Santa Claus is not a cure for poverty. All it is is a way to buy votes, he said.Thats why Democrats want amnesty. See, the Democrat needs a permanent underclass. They need a certain level of poverty. They need an uneducated, hopeless, unskilled people to vote for them. Thats their base.

And Rush is right in all that he said.
It may look today like the Democrats are going to take the prize just from the sheer media brainwashing of the adult voters, and the leftist indoctrination regimen that kids in schools and colleges undergo every day.
And sure, many of these programming victims will probably stay brainwashed. After all, a certain percentage of people are in love with the low standards of morality anyway. The Democrats telling them what they already want to hear is an easy win for them.
But the other groups, especially the young people, are going to look up from thier ipads and computers one day and get a startled look on thier face.
That is when they will wake up and realize what Obama and the left are doing to them, and to America.
They will awake with horror to find that the America of thier grandparents generation is not available to them. Niether are the freedoms and opportunity that America once offered.
Oh, the democrats and thier pet media will try to explain it all away as just inevitable, and that there was no way around it.
And then, many of the young folks will awake, smell the BS coming from the left, and a new and energized generation of conservatives will arise.
Just like it happened in 1980.
Us guys like you and me are the stop-gap conservatives. We are just trying to hold the line from the political and ideological onslaught of the leftist Orcs monster army, and to give the young folks time to grow up and smell the doo doo cooking in Washington.
Kind of like a scene from Lord of the Rings, isnt it?
But, us conservatives did much the same in the 1970s. And it wasnt easy, not right after the Nixon thing (which is mild compared to the Obama scandals).
If the media was really worth its salt, it would have examined and exposed the Obama administrations many scandals, until he went the same way as Nixon (if he was lucky).
But, the media is a lot less honest these days. The only real reason that they went after Nixon then, was that he was a Republican.
But anyhoo, us conservatives will just have to help the young, starry eyed kids with leftist mush running out of thier ears, to wake up and join us real freedom loving Americans to push back the tide of tyranny and enslavement to an out of control Marxist regime.
And to help them find the way to the voting booth to vote for a true conservative.
These days, voting Republican dont always mean conservative like it used to.
When we have guys like Alexander and Corker in the Senate representing us, it looks like its time to vote Tea Party, because Alexander and Corker arent really conservative.
They are like a fruit tree that bears no fruit...useless. They helped the Democrats override Rand Pauls filibuster on the gun grab bill that Senator Paul was trying to stop.
Now, thanks to Alexander and Corker, and some other pseudo-Republicans, the democrats can bring the bill back up for a vote any time they please.
And you can bet that it wont be long.
They are just waiting for another incident that the media can hype up and bombard us with day and night, to try to ride a wave of emotionalism and cram another communist, reduction of freedom law down our throats.
And Alexander and Corker helped set this up for future events. So, I think we should vote them both out of office. They arent really conservatives.
They just play at it when the cameras are on, and then vote the other way when they arent.
Question though, who are the Tea Party candidates that will run for the Tennessee Senate seats in the next elections?

The bum keeps falling in poll numbers. Reality is finally hitting. Speeches don't work anymore.
Can you say failure after failure after failure.
The stench of failure from the Obama administration is overpowering.
Not only the economy but foreign affairs and race relations are big failures also. Not to mention inability to work with anyone.
Obama can't understand why his socialist policies aren't working and he will blame the white racist conservatives and the evil rich companies for his failures.
obama wishes he could be smart enough or brave enough to be a rodeo clown.
Maybe real Americans are just getting tired of incompetence, lying and cowardice...
Worst recovery since the Great Depression. And the Clown in Chief cannot stop taking vacations, golfing and refusing to take any responsibility for 5 years now.
I never questioned Clint Eastwood's assertion..........we have an empty suit in the WH!!
All the percentages go down as far as Obummer's ratings, yet he goes all over the country telling everyone how wonderful everything is. He is the greatest liar that has ever been and worse president ever...
He just needs another diversion for this week.........what will it be thus time?
#67 Aug 16, 2013
Well, the Democrat spin machine (ti include the liberal owned news media) can go on touting how many new jobs that Obamacare has created.
But what they will not tell, is that Obamacare is going to force just about all workers to become part-time, no benefits employees.
People will have to work two or three part time jobs just to make what they used to earn with one job.
And.......since the part time jobs dont offer benefits (like health insurance) these folks working two or three part time jobs will also have to pay..thats right, you guessed it...
,,,The Obamacare penaly. What is it going to be,$5500 or so, PER PERSON in every home without healthcare?
And they wont get the assistance to make up the cost of buying insurance. That part of the plan was tossed out months ago.
But, if you take a normal 40 hour work week (like we used to have before Obama) and divde it by three...then I suppose that you could theoretically claim that you have created jobs?
Isnt this how the new "Obama Math" works?

Tennessee has a growing number of conservatives and tea party patriots moving here from lib states?
We have new neighbors from CA and NY that said that is why they are here now.
#69 Aug 16, 2013
No sir, those folk came here to take advantage of the lower costs of living and a chance to poke fun and take advantage of the situation. Those interlopers are not here to bring change or blend in among the good folk. It's all a matter of money. I for one wish they would just move somewhere else and keep their braggy ass Yank opinions to themselves. Either Tea Party or sane, they are just here to take advantage of the situation.
#70 Aug 16, 2013
Im afraid I must agree. These pushy, egotistical, arrogant outsiders are not a good thing for the region, except for some new breeding bloodlines perhaps.
(The gene poole is getting admitedly shallow around here)
But the outsders who have come in so far have prety much tried to take over, and then ruin, our Appalachian way of life.
First they get elected to some minor post, or on some councils and get a little power...
Then the flurrys of rules come in.
Zoning rules...town ordinances, just every sort and type of pety, Mickey Mouse, ridiculous kind of rule and ordinance that ye can think of.
Of course, the worst offenders are the pushy, nose turned up Floridians. They are the worst amongst them. Living with that kind is like living with an angry woman.
#71 Aug 16, 2013
Anyone from CA OR NY thinks they know it all and Florida is not a Southern state. They say they researched all states and Tennessee ranks at the top for freedoms and low taxes. Look at the growth in East Tennessee in recent years and it is not from sex and having babies, people keep moving here. It is scary already. dayum al gore internet...
Since: Jul 13

I couldn't agree more. I've had more conflicts with transplanted Floridians then any other group. The outsiders always speak of how backwards we are, yet they seem to move here in droves. Many will sell their $250K house up North, buy the same house here for $100K or so and live off the rest until they find a place that will hire them. After being hired, they go on and on about how much more advanced their previous state was, how everything was so much better etc, YET THEY NEVER GO BACK..
#73 Aug 21, 2013
And the clue to understanding these transplants is that they have zero interest or desire to know anything about the Appalachian culture, or our history.
But I will open the dusty old lid just a crack, that the outsiders may not remain in total ignorance about us.
Lets start in the year AD 1066.
William Duke of Normandy and his French and mercenary army invaded England and defeated the last Anglo-Saxon King, Harold Godwinson, at the battle of Hastings in that year. He went on to London and had himself crowned king.
Not all the Saxons submitted to his rule.
Thus, William sent his army to make an ethnic cleansing of all resistance, which was mostly in the North of England. They slew about every living thing they could find, entire towns were erased.
This was called "The harrowing of the North".
Some Anglo-Saxon survivors and hold outs fled across Hadrians wall, into lower Scotland. There became the "Scots-Saxons". And they took thier Old English language with them, and developed their own peculiar dialect.
Thier language separated them friend from foe, ye see. It was a defense mechanism. So, one can have several levels of meaning and inflection in thier conversation, that an outsiders simply cannot detect.
Gradually, these Scots-Saxons intermarried with some of the Scots Picts and Gaels, and thus the bloodline remained more or less like this until the 1600s.
They became the outlaws and brigands that made the border lands a very dangerous place for the next 600 years. These people became the "Border Rievers" of the Scots-English border areas.
The word "Rievers" means...robbers.
Its still used here today, BTW. To make a Longbow, it must be "Rived Out" of the tree, as my grandfather used to say.
Eventually, by the 1600s, many of these people were sent to the Northern Irish district of Ulster. Here is a short video of this...
And after staying in Ulster about 100 years, they migrated to America. The Appalachian mountains became the cultural and genetic base, and overseas homeland of these people, who became known as the Scots-Irish.
Who are the people living here today.
Our dialect hasnt really changed that much, even though some of the vocabulary words have. It doesnt really matter, as the layered effect of inflection and nuance is still there, no matter what vocabulary words are used. It is an insulation device that protects us, and our culture, from the corruption of a hostile and alien world.
Thus, the Appalachian way of speaking would work just as well in French, or even Japanese, as it does with our antiquated English.
Modern day educators and outsiders who would seek to reform us, dont understand this. Instead of educating themselves about our culture and knowing what they are talking about, they just make unsupported assumptions that we are an ignorant people.
And we look down on them with distrust, and disgust, because of it.
There we go. A short history of the Scots-Irish of Appalachia.
I know and understand, that there be the usual suspects of trolls, who will be offended at any post that does not include profanity, insulting and stupid one liners, or takes longer than a 10 second sound bite to read.
They are usually the Obama and Democrat/atheist supporters.
But we pay no mind to them,no more than little yapping dogs.
