Playing With Words

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Cont.: Indivisible (to not be divided, the people to stand together as one), with liberty (freedom to do what you want as long it does not affect someone else, and it does not mean we all have to be as wealthy or poor as each other)), and justice for all ( we all live under the same set of laws, no one is better than another). There is NOTHING socialistic to it at all!

...and to the Republic for which is stands,... Note it says "republic" and not "democracy". There is a big difference. We live by rule of law and by certain unalienable rights spelled out in the constitution that government cannot override.
..under God... This nation was established as a place where God's laws were sovereign and we respected and were thankful for God's blessings. I know these words were not added until the early '50s, but they separate us from Godless Communist and Socialist governments and countries. It is our belief in the 10 Commandments, Christian charity, freedom, equal justice for all and equal treatment under the law (as well as God's blessings because we have been a testament to His sovereignty) that has...

...made the United States of America the greatest nation on Earth. We have done more to further the advancement of mankind, been more generous to other countries in need and produced the highest standard of living anywhere. It is the Socialization, Progressivism and Marxist changes that have eroded our sovereignty, living standard, education standard, and economic standing.

As we have moved away from God, pushed Him out of schools, public spaced and tried to do things without Him, God has removed His blessings. We are now paying the price for turning our backs on Him and thinking it was us that made us great. We need to have another great awakening and fall on our knees and beg for forgiveness. We need to have the entire nation have a true day of prayer asking for His guidance and mercy. Thanksgiving was established as a national day of thanking God for His blessings and it is now a day for Turkey and football. We get what we deserve.

Hence your ability to sometimes form words......
Would anyone work to support themselves or their families -- and then turn over a chunk of that hard-earned money to somebody else, just because of the words used by that somebody else?

A few people may be taken in by the words of con men, here and there, but the larger tragedy is that millions more are taken in by the words of politicians, the top-of-the-line con men.

How do politicians con people out of their money? One example can be found in a recent article titled "The Autism-Welfare Nexus" by Paul Sperry in "Investor's Business Daily."

Genuine autism is a truly tragic...
