As an American Christian, I remember finding much comfort in reading the books of Billy Graham. What a wonderful man of God-truly. How disappointing to see his son, Franklin Graham, adopt racial attitudes that his father fought so hard against. He approaches Christianity as if it were a white religion and that white standards determine its validity. He asserts himself as one who can validate whether or not a person is a Christian. And most of all, he forgets where Christianity was born-in the Middle East-not in the Church of England, not in America, but in the Middle East. What he also seems to fail to see is that it is not enough to think you know Christ-It is Christ who must know you.
And the US taxpayer is still BAILING out the VICTIMS 25 years later. Reagan whole-heartedly and cold heartedly believed in the Marxist redistribution of wealth from America's east and west coasts to America's heartland. And now, in the year 2012, with farm subsidy handouts and ethanol mandates peaking at $35 billion a year, are we any closer to a free market in agriculture? Again, why does the vast majority of these farm handouts go to people who are card-carrying members of the Republican Party?
And now, I've just finished reading "The Reagan Diaries" edited by Douglas Brinkley. I was shocked again by what I read in this book on page 347. Reagan wrote "Half of farming is outside all government agricultural programs and that half is not having any economic problems. Government has led to the present situation for the other half. Having caused the problem, government HAS to help bail out the VICTIMS now, and then work to return farming to its free market." The Mission has NOT been accomplished! A mission deferred is a mission LOST.

If you shuffle a pedophile priest onto another unsuspecting parish, are you not condoning pedophilia? Those who knew and transferred pedophiles should be in jail, not get promotions like Cardinal Bernard Law. The Roman Catholic systemically PROTECTED PEDOPHILES. A true Christian leader would live life by these words: "Woe unto them who would hurt one of these little ones who believe in me. It would be better for them to have a millstone around their neck and be thrown into the sea."
Card-carrying members of the Republican Party, have uttered, "America is in the fight of our lives...America is at a cross roads and the stakes are high, maybe even our lives." The only way Republicans are willing to pay for this engagement is to hold onto their precious George W. Bush tax cut and sell bonds to foreign countries. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, both long term social-engineering and nation building projects, cost how many billions each month? It's time to stop the 'drama queening' and if you think we should be in Iraq, Afghanistan and 'Operation Enduring Freedom' has national security value, then have the Republican party demand that it must be PAID for, NOW!
Republicans see their own political fronts as charities as they cleverly disguise them. They say "the IRS doesn't consider a tax deductible political contribution 'charity,' anymore than it does a business expense." These Republicans lie. Here's the proof that contradicts their phoniness as these Republican fronts 'fess-up' to being charities by advertising themselves as such. Check the bottom right of http://www.heritage.org/donate It says, "The Heritage Foundation has received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America's largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities." Is this the 'charity' and giving to the poor that Jesus talked about?
Should we Americans be on-board with all the Republican spending programs like; 1. ethanol mandates 2. paying for missile defense for the EU 3. the 100 year social engineering project in Iraq 4. making Afghanistan a modern democratic state 5. increasing entitlement spending by passing Medicare Prescription 6. Expanding NATO to include Ukraine and the Republic of Georgia Once again, Republicans believe in HUGE government, they just can't be bothered to pay for it. Let's not forget that government expansion was two and a half times bigger under George W. Bush than under 'Bubba' Clinton.
