Romney says, Only a new President can put Nation back under God


And of course, according to Romney, he  is that ‘new’ president.

These politicians make me sick…but not as sick as the foolish Christians who believe their rhetoric.

“We believe in a nation under God, a nation indivisible, a nation united, a nation with justice and liberty for all,” Romney said, reciting the final clause of the Pledge of Allegiance, as he spoke at a military museum in Virginia Beach, Va., on Saturday afternoon. “And for that to happen, we’re going to have to have a new president that will commit to getting America working again; that will commit to a strong military; that will commit to a nation under God..

  1. “And for that to happen, we’re going to have to have a new president that will commit to getting America working again; that will commit to a strong military.”

    Money and power, that’s the road to God. Yea, right.

  2. “Don’t doubt this man’s faith,” King said. “Don’t doubt his conviction. Do not doubt his patriotism or his faith, and his love for Jesus Christ, our Savior.” – Rep Steve King of Iowa. Whatever happens in November, the Christian Right would have done enough to further muddy the water for people as to the distinction between Mormonism and Biblical Christianity. This could have been avoided if the political discussion is simply centered around what’s the best way to organize the society as oppose vote for our candidate cuz he’s more righteous than the other guy.

    My position on politics and religion is this: I don’t want to hear from politician about God. Each time a politician is yapping about God, i think he/she is about to pull a fast one on me and I don’t want to hear my preacher harping about who I should vote. The moment I hear that I tune off. Let the preacher unapologetic-ally stick to proclaiming the gospel. The injection of religion into politics seems to be a situation whereby the religious politicians wants to use the “power of Ceaser” to fulfill the dictates of God. it can only end in disaster.

      Exactly. (well said RxY)

      Yes im with you..i’m not looking for a spiritual leader to sit in the White House, but only someone to fulfill the duties he’s elected to fulfill. For ALL citizens.

      The Constitution assigns the following duties to an elected President:

      1-Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces:

      The President of the United States of America is the head of the U.S. Military. As Commander in Chief, he can authorize the use of troops overseas without declaring war. To declare war officially, he must get the approval of the Congress.

      2-Make treaties, with two-thirds consent of the Senate
      3-Receive ambassadors and other public ministers from foreign countries
      4-Appoint ambassadors, Supreme Court justices, federal judges, and any officials as provided for by the Congress, with the approval of the Senate
      5-Give an annual State of the Union Address to Congress:

      Each year by the first Monday in February, the sitting President must present to the Congress a proposed spending plan for the Federal Government in the coming fiscal year. The Budget is basically a series of goals with price tags attached and allows the President to provide a suggested spending framework to Congress for use in deciding (1) how much money to spend, (2) what to spend it on, and (3) how to raise the money they have decided to spend.

      According to the Constitution, all Federal appropriations much be authorized by Congress. This is a source of great power for Congress known as the “power of the purse”. Once the budget is received by Congress, the House of Representatives work to create a budget resolution, which sets the base line level of spending for the Federal Government. Congress then acts to decide how this level of funding will be dispersed among Federal activities. The online version of the President’s Budget may be found at: http://www.gpoaccess.gov/usbudget

      6-Recommend legislation to Congress:

      The President does not have the power to write legislation. Only Congress can do that. The President may recommend law, and then a member of Congress must introduce the bill for consideration. When a bill is passed it is sent to the President and he has three options: approval, veto or doing nothing. When the President signs a bill into law, it immediately goes into effect. When the President vetoes a bill, it does not go into effect, and he returns it to Congress unsigned. He usually sends them an explanation of why he rejected the legislation. Congress can override a Presidential veto with two-thirds of each chamber, but this does not happen very often.

      If the President chooses to do nothing with the bill and the Congress is in session ten business days after the President received the bill, the legislation will become a law without the President’s signature. If Congress adjourns within ten business days of giving the bill to the President, the bill dies. The President may only veto a bill in its entirety; he does not have the power of line-item veto. Because of this limitation, the President often compromises and passes a bill that he agrees with, but Congress has attached riders that go against his policy.

      7-Convene Congress on extraordinary occasions
      8-Adjourn Congress, in cases of a disagreement about adjournment
      9-“Take care that the laws be faithfully executed”
      10-Fill in administrative vacancies during Congressional recesses
      11-Grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the U.S.

  3. Well Gordon, i may not be a huge fan of Dawkins, but the man sure makes some excellent points.

    quote,

    Britain’s most prominent atheist attacked the core tenets of Mr Romney’s religion, saying that the Church of Latter Day Saints’ founding prophet was “a fraud” and that the presidential contender was “too stupid to see it”.

    Smith claimed to have translated runes engraved on the plates, and compiled them into the Book of Mormon. The text describes how Jesus Christ appeared in the United States after the Crucifixion and how Adam and Eve went to the site of present-day Missouri after being expelled from the Garden of Eden.

    “Could you really vote for a man who thinks the Garden of Eden was in Missouri?” he said.

    Especially in light of the newest article at the Christian Post: Judeo-Christian Values Led Me to Presidential Run, Romney Says

  4. There are now approximately 200,000 Syrian refugees who have been forced to leave their homes. Perhaps as many as 40,000 people have been killed because of the civil war, with tens of thousands wounded. The suffering is immeasurable, and the tragedy continues unabated. But while all this takes place, almost 2 billion dollars will be spent on the dunghill of lies called the “election” here in America. If that is the way of Jesus, then I am following an imposter.

    Remember to register to vote. It will make you feel much better.

    • Amen.

      Just recently i was talking to someone about the billions being spent on this election, especially by super-pacs, while people around this world AND in this nation itself are in dire need.

      But don’t forget, we’re a “Christian Nation”. What a joke….

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
