I want to share a fable with you, from Aseop. 

The Dog and The Wolf

    There one was a Wolf so skinny that he was nearly dead with hunger.  He met a Dog who lived in a house in town. 

    The Dog saw the Wolf was near death.  “Dear Wolf,” said the Dog, “your wild life will be the end of you.  Why not work as I do, and get your food given to you each day?”

    “I would be willing to try anything,” said the Wolf, “if I could just get a place to live and something to eat.”

    “I can take care of that for you,” said the Dog.  “Come with me to my master and you can share my work.” 

    As the Wolf and Dog made their way to the town, the Wolf saw that the hair on the Dog’s neck was worn very thin. 

    “Dear Dog,” said the Wolf.  “Why is the hair on your neck worn so thin that your skin shows?” 

    “Oh, it’s nothing.  Don’t worry about that,” said the Dog.  “That is just the place where my master puts the collar on my neck each night.  After supper, I am chained.  You will get used to it.” 

    “Is that what it costs to eat every day?” said the Wolf.  “Then good-bye, Friend Dog.  I would rather starve and be free.” 

 

Many people in this country are much like the Wolf at the beginning when he says, “I would be willing to try anything if I could just get a place to live and something to eat.”  We are tired of things the way they are and so we are looking for “change.”  But at what cost?  Anything?  Our freedom?  The Wolf learned, before it was too late.  But, sadly, I don’t think I can see the same for many of my fellow Americans.  Most people won’t figure it out until it is too late, and the “hair on their necks are worn so thin that their skin shows.” 

We are watching our freedoms slip slowly away, ever so slightly.  The Constitution is being disregarded at an alarming rate!  I hope people wake up before we are saying, “Oh, it’s nothing.  You will get used to it.”

 

I found this great article by David Limbaugh today about Obama.  Clearly Obama is a Socialist, as this other astue blogger points out.  Socialism is evil!  I just wish I could trust McCain not to go down the socialism road, too.  But, alas, I cannot.

OK, I was on board with McCain for a bit, after he picked Palin.  But, now she is becoming more and more like him.  While I still have hope that she would be good for the country, I don’t believe that I can support that ticket.  McCain just stands for too much that I disagree with.  For a time I was of the mindset that I had to do anything and everything I could to stop Obama.  I’ve struggled with this for a long time.  But, I now believe that I cannot in good conscience vote for McCain.  Obviously I won’t be voting for Obama.  So, the question then becomes, “What do I do?”  I believe that the best thing I can do is vote for a third party.  Some may say that this is a wasted vote, but I don’t think so.  After looking at and studying all the third party candidates, I have found one who echoes many of my beliefs:  Chuck Baldwin.  He is the Constitution Party candidate.  (In Nevada the Constitution Party is the Independent American Party.)  What it comes down to is that I believe that both Obama and McCain are going to bring more socialism and problems for our country.  Obama is open about it, but McCain is not.  In fact, if you look at his record, he has not supported the Constitution on many occasions.  I believe that he may have the same designs for our country as Obama, but is just trying to mask them.  Bottom line, I believe that they are both evil men.  I will post later about my reasoning for that.  Suffice it to say that I have learned more about McCain, and I don’t like it.  Incidentally, a friend of mine commented to me tonight that “McCain is the Harry Reid of the Republican Party.”  I agree.  I am also seriously considering switching my party registration. 

I need to vote for a good man, and one that upholds and honors the Constitution! 

Please visit my friend Mike’s blog to read a ton more about the Constitution, what Prophets have said, and Chuck Baldwin.

No, I don’t think Hillary is out of it just yet, as many suggest.  Let us not forget that this was suppose to be her election.  She was entitled to the White House.  Remember all that?  Oh, but then Barack Hussein Obama came into the picture.  The Democrat party threw her overboard.  So, it has been an interesting primary for the Democrat party; full of lots of drama.  I think it’s one of the most entertaining things I’ve been witness to.  And, it’s only been helped along by Rush Limbaugh‘s Operation Chaos.  (I may as well enjoy their party, since I don’t like our party’s nominee.)  I’m with him, let them rip each other apart, because John McCain surely won’t do it, and somebody’s got to.  And I truly believe Hillary will fight all the way to the end on this, because in her mind, she is still entitled to this. 

Anyway, one has to wonder what kind of chance Hillary had to begin with, even without the Obama factor.  I mean how many people wanted to reopen the Clinton chapters in American History?  So, I read this great article by Ann Coulter today about just this thing.  Check it out

Well, the Clark County Republican Convention was today. Wow. It was kind of nuts, but very good. Over 3000 delegates there, and pretty well organized. It was somewhat stressful at times, as I felt people were being ridiculous and wasting time, but for the most part, it was good. We had several good speakers, Gov. Jim Gibbons, Congressman Dean Heller, Senator John Ensign, and also a video message from Congressman Jon Porter. That was all pretty cool. I was bugged, however, that there was no Presidential straw poll taken. I was so excited, because I was going to vote for Ron Paul, to show my dislike of John McCain. But, alas, it was not meant to be. The biggest problem we had was trying to agree on a platform. I think most people agreed on most of the items, just a handful that raised eyebrows and caused a long debate. In the end, we had to vote for the platform as a whole, instead of item by item, so I ended up voting against it. I have yet to see the results of the voting, but they should be available soon. There were just some things that I couldn’t vote for. Luckily, there will be another meeting in a couple weeks to address the platform.
All the debate on the platform issues really brought to light for me the plight of the Republican party. We are so used to worrying about what everyone else thinks of us, that we don’t bother to stand up for our real values. This is absurd. We had some people saying that if we took all the pro-life references out, that it would be much more appealing to democrats so that they would vote for John McCain. Are you kidding me?! These people want to change the party to conform to the liberals, and that is just ridiculous! We had others who wanted to take out the fact that the best and ideal environment for children to be raised in is a happy two-parent home. Some wanted to take out support for a federal marriage amendment. I just don’t understand this. What has happened to my party? This is not the party of Ronald Reagan anymore. Reagan believed in strong families. Now, I see this party trying to attack the family just like the liberals do. It truly disturbs me. I heard people in there today that seemed to be against capitalism, at least to some degree. I heard people that were upset that a prayer was said at the beginning of the meeting. Frankly, I heard people that I would liken unto FDR democrats. The liberals and moderates are running the party, and running it into the ground. What ever happened to strong conservative values? We need to stop catering to those not even in our party and get back to core party values: strong families, strong economy, strong military. We need to get back to the Contract With America.
I really see things sliding in a way that scares me. I’m truly worried about the future for my children and grandchildren. What kind of world am I giving them? This is why I’ve decided to do everything I can at a local level to see to it that strong, solid conservatives get elected to local and state offices, and to the House and Senate. The White House is lost this election, no matter who wins. So, we’ve got to get strong people into other offices, so real change can begin. Conservatives have got to take back the Republican party!

In response to comments left on this posting:
Folks, believe me, I’m going to do everything I can to be at that meeting on the 18th. I believe so strongly that we must take back the Republican party from the left and from the media. The liberal media selected our presidential nominee, pure and simple. We’ve been so worried about offending someone on the left for so long that we’ve lost our way. I feel it is imperative that we get back to our conservative values. Real conservative values. The thought of a world run by liberals (even liberal republicans) makes me cringe and shudder and want to cry for my children. I just must do everything I can to protect our future. I love this country! I want to preserve those values that make this THE best country in the world.

I’m just sick! I’m disgusted with the state of the Republican party! How could a party that is suppose to be conservative, have someone so liberal as their front runner?! I just don’t see how these people that call themselves conservatives can vote for John McCain! THE MAN IS A LIBERAL! Make no mistake about it. JOHN MCCAIN IS A LIBERAL, A LIAR, AND A CON MAN, NO BETTER THAN CLINTON OR OBAMA!
I’m really fuming. What the heck is going on with the GOP? I just can’t believe people are falling for this stuff!
I’m just going to post a link to my friend Mike’s blog entry about tonight’s results in Florida.

Check out his entry and my comments on it. Pretty much sums it up. I’m sure I’ll have more to say on the subject, but I first need to calm down. UGGGGHHHHH!

Also, read this article by Mark Levin, The Real McCain Record.
