Are You Prepared?

Can you survive without the government’s help?

When the South seceded from the Union, the main reason was that the Union government was taking too much power from the states. They were telling the states what they could and could not do (for instance slavery) and the southern states rebelled by forming the Confederacy.

If you look at all the changes that have taken place within the government (Federal) since then, you will see how much more power the states have lost. Little by little, the people have turned over their rights in exchange for the government taking on more and more authority to “take care of” what should be our responsibilities. We, the people, have gotten complacent and lazy, allowing and even encouraging, at times, “Big Brother” to take over control of our lives.

This has really begun to show up now that the ultra liberals have taken control of big government. Instead of small steps that have taken place behind the scenes and ever so silent over the years, with the election of Obama as President and Pelosi as Speaker of the House, giant strides and booming moves have overtaken us. So much so, that several states have passed legislation assuring their sovereignty as per the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America, apart from the federal government. The tenth amendment says that "the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

If most of the states feel that this new socialist government is threatening them, how much more do you think our personal rights are being threatened?

Are you prepared?

You may think that the big deal about more gun control is okay because you do not like guns; you think they are dangerous and especially when they fall into the hands of offenders, you may get killed or injured by them. However, consider the bigger picture.

The Second Amendment to the Constitution states: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed (violated.)" The founding fathers of our country considered this so important that they made it the Second Amendment. We must be able to protect ourselves from anyone that would threaten the security of a free State and that includes an out of control Federal government. (These founding fathers had just come out from under the control of an English king and understood what infringement of their freedom meant.)

Did you know that during WWII, 110,000 Japanese nationals and Japanese-Americans were put in internment camps simply because they were of Japanese decent (62% were US citizens) in the United States under Presidential Executive Order #9066? (Think about this for a while: you’ll connect it!)

Did you know that the liberals are trying to pass legislation to require your fingerprints & personal info just to buy ammunition? They already require it to buy a gun as well as a criminal history. They are trying their best to be able to locate every gun owner and know what kind and how many guns they have in their possession. Why would they need to know that? I can’t think it would make any difference to control criminal activity. They certainly do not get their guns legally.

Are you prepared?

Unemployment rates are at an all time high but someone’s “experts” say that the economy has “bottomed out” whatever that means. It ‘s supposed to be good news, but the oil business’ (which is very big business in Texas) future looks bleak with the “cap and trade” taxes that are in the works on Obama’s agenda. The oil industry will suffer like it never has. Unemployment will continue to rise while taxes on our electricity will skyrocket along with the price of foreign oil. We already have unheard of trillions of dollars of debt taken on by big government that is going to have to be paid somehow. Where is it going to come from? Printing more money just makes the money we already have worth less. And guess what comes after a recession and depression? Inflation gets out of control. Everything is fixing’ to get more expensive. Our money isn’t going nearly as far as it did just a year ago. We already can’t buy groceries and if Obama has his way, our gas and electricity are going to be too expensive to buy. More layoffs will happen in those industries as well.

Are you prepared?

Court justices have taken it upon themselves to write laws instead of interpreting them appearing to make the Constitution say that God is not supposed to be involved with the government. The First Amendment to the Constitution says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress (a setting right or a remedy) of grievances."
My class on Government, taught that there are three branches of government: Executive Branch, Legislative Branch and Judicial Branch. This is a checks and balances system. But if the Judicial branch is making law, what does the Legislative branch do? Hmmmm… The Legislative branch cannot make any laws about religion, whether establishing it or prohibiting the free exercise of it, so how can the Judicial branch interpret a non-existent law? It can’t. It has to re-write the First Amendment to do so. Hmmmm…

This has caused prayer to be taken out of school. In some states, the Pledge of Allegiance is optional because the “under God” part is objectionable to some people. The Ten Commandments were forcibly removed from different government buildings. It’s okay to burn Old Glory, but you cannot display her in your office. That part of the amendment is perfectly clear????? Pornography is protected by this same amendment. Hate speech is allowed by this amendment except when Christians are talking about homosexuality as being against God’s Word. A pastor and his wife in California were just ordered to stop having bible studies in their home without a permit! Do these decisions sound like interpretation of the amendment as you read it? Do you have to have a law degree to see law being made and not interpreted? AND talk about job security. Supreme Court Justices are for life!

And what part of …all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness says that a baby is not included? From the moment a woman misses her period or reads the positive tester, she knows that if she doesn’t abort the cause, then it will grow and ultimately be born. It is a baby from conception and she knows it. We all do. Where does the law say that anyone has the right to murder?

Even Congress in spite of all the bipartisan hype of the election is still voting Democrats versus Republicans. So much for the people’s best interest. Special interest is closer to the truth. Find out how much money your representatives and senators are making and how much they will make for the rest of their lives and how much Social Security they are paying in. Let me know what you learn from that little expedition. You will begin to understand that it’s all about the money. Be sure and look into their election campaign funds and contributors. There are some good ones out there, probably several, but it just takes one bad apple and the barrel smells bad.
Our Godly, conservative, lifegiving views are being eroded away in this me, me, me world. Our rights are being systematically whittled away while the government is getting bigger and bigger.
And by the way, how’s that hope and change working for you?

Are you prepared?

North Korea has been test-firing missiles, did an underground nuclear test and threatened US and South Korean forces with harm if they tried to intercept any of its ships.

Venezuela and Bolivia are supplying Iran with uranium and they’re producing their own plutonium for nuclear bombs. Iran’s president hates Israel and the Jews and with Obama’s “sit down and chat” attitude, who knows where that will go.

The US and the UN are both blaming Israel for defending herself and pushing her to settle for a Palestinian state, giving them land that is rightfully theirs. They are being pressured to settle and compromise with countries and terrorists such as Hamas that only want to destroy them. The US at this point does not seem to be prepared to support Israel; nor does anyone else. Biblical prophesy of the end times is at hand.

Are you prepared?

If the worst happens and we should undergo great tribulation from Iranian or North Korean nuclear, biological or chemical warfare, a rebellion within our borders, a series of natural disasters, a government controlled seizure of our property and martial law, do you have a plan? Do you have food, water, a radio, blankets, medicines, etc. put back to survive for a while?
Did you know you can survive a nuclear, chemical or biological attack if you are prepared for it? How much do you know about survival without car access or a food supply?

This may sound like something out of the movies, but we are a lot closer than we have ever been to losing this great nation. How much do you think we can lose before chaos takes over? I know we have been guaranteed eternity with God and Jesus won the war over sin and Satan, but we still have to battle in this human world and go through tribulation. The United States has lost a lot of her power. We, the People no longer have control of our government, Christian persecution is worsening and we are being threatened from all fronts. The end times are getting closer.

Are you prepared?
