Parker: Voting No on God

By Star Parker

Maybe Democrats have some slick salesmen, like Bill Clinton and our current president, who can sell you swampland and have you convinced that you've bought choice beachfront property.

But the original omission of any mention of God and recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital from the Democratic Party platform, which were in it in 2008, followed by an undemocratic attempt to add them after the fact, showed the clear truth about the 2012 Democratic Party.

It took three boisterous floor votes to add these principles to the platform. Listening to the ayes and nays in the third vote, it is doubtful they got the two-thirds that were needed.

The omission of these key principles from the Democratic platform was the party equivalent of what journalist Michael Kinsley calls a political gaffe -- when a politician inadvertently says what he really believes.

Democrat Party operatives panicked when they realized the platform, as initially drafted, showed today's Democrats exactly for who they are -- the home base for the nihilism, radical moral relativism and welfare statism that defines today's far Left.

But the Democrats are the party of the entertainment industry. They know how to create fiction and appeal to fantasies. So the party of the radical Left brands Republicans as extremists.

The United States is still a religious nation.

According to a 2010 Gallup poll, 43 percent of Americans attend church regularly. However, just 39 percent of Democrats and 27 percent of liberals do.

The alignment of the culture of the Democratic Party with that of bankrupt European welfare states provides a powerful hint where they are taking this country. In a Pew Research Center survey of last year, 50 percent of Americans said religion is "very important", compared with 22 percent in Spain, 21 percent in Germany, 17 percent in Great Britain and 13 percent in France.

Of the 50 percent of Americans who said religion is very important, 67 percent were conservative and 29 percent liberal.

Regarding Israel, in a Gallup poll done this year, 61 percent of all Americans -- 78 percent of Republicans and 56 percent of Democrats -- said their sympathies lie with the Israelis rather than the Palestinians.

Back in 1965, when President Johnson signed Medicare and Medicaid into law, 30 percent of federal spending consisted of payments to individuals. Today, it's almost 70 percent. At the beginning of the Johnson presidency in 1965, 24 percent of black babies and 3 percent of white babies were born to unwed mothers. Today, 73 percent of black babies and 29 percent of white babies are born out of wedlock. More than half of births today to women under 30 are outside of marriage.

Unfunded liabilities of Medicare, plus those of Social Security, are $63 trillion, according to their trustees' latest report. But underlying the fiscal bankruptcy is a moral bankruptcy. You wouldn't know it, listening to la la land Democrat liberals.

Not only are we killing the goose that lays the eggs, but with 50 percent of Americans now living in a household getting government benefits, we're losing perspective that you even need a goose to get eggs.

God-fearing, family- and church-centered American values created the American prosperity that opened the door to entitlement programs.

Now, Democrats brand those traditional American values as cruel and "on your own."

If you think debt, government dependence, broken families, and moral relativism is the path to a strong and prosperous America, sign on with the Democrats.

But Republicans need to do a better job embracing and articulating the alternative.

Republicans need to step up to the plate and start talking about our nation's real crisis -- our moral crisis. The nation's searching middle class will understand the truth when they hear it. But they need to hear it first.

    Obama is like the pandering first date gone bad who once he has seduced you and gratified himself on his end, just kicks you to the curb and moves on to the next conquest which is his next election. He is just a professional date monger for his next rally who produces nothing but promises. Obama likewise briefly flirted and dated our Christian God and the American people before the election, but has kicked both to the curb to move back home in dependency with the Socialist secular Totems of Daddy and Mommy to support him in his old age which kicks the support out from under of US in OUR old age.

    In Obama’s Alinsky socialist “divide and conquer” war on America and God with his cobbled together 2-3% minority groups of sectarian moral disobedience, he forgot the 35% minority of obedient REAL Christians who still reside IN HIS OWN PARTY who are beginning to wakeup at the sound of the Convention gavel, who along with fellow Christians of the undecided ranks, are deciding to replace the current Presidential decider with one who actually knows how to decide.

    A No vote for God is a yes vote for this Presidential Pretender wolf in sheep’s clothing, and It should be the opposite way around. You cannot call youself a true Christain and continue to vote these morally disobedient children-in-adult bodies into positions of power over you. Our founders understood who the REAL authority was and the source of all REAL and lasting blessings come from. Obama just offers more of the same immediate gratification followed by four more years of regret.

    As a Christian man my head is still spinning from that Democrat faux reversal of the lost vote on GOD, overcome by the polling back-pedaling progressive pre-determinators of outcome in political pandering placation.
    Bishop Fulton J. Sheen had an apt description of the Democrats and their Convention;

    “The clown is laughing at finite men who try to make themselves the infinite, the poor who make themselves rich, he is laughing at the Rich who refuse to be poor, and God himself laughs in the same way. He laughs at men who are the carbon copy and calls himself the original.”

    That in a nutshell describes the enemy.

    Carbon copy’s aside, we need to go back to the future of the 50′s and 60′s to vote him out , ditto ditto ditto.

    The GOP needs to remember that not all conservatives are Christian. I would love to attend or watch a Republic rally that could just leave god at the back door. It seems the Democrats are ready for that either.

    What about all the true Conservatives who are not Christians? A no vote for God. Give me a break. It shouldn’t even be a consideration.

      I would bet your shorts that had the vote to bring God back who would NEVER have been allowed to leave the party in the first place,,,would have shouted down the rafters upon the unbelieving secular RINO republicans left in the party. “Those who are not with me are against Me.” as the true Messiah warned. Which now that the veil has been removed from the belly dancing, dancers around the truth Democrat wing of the belly feeders has shown their True Colors of this party and this Presidency of Coveters of that which God in his wisdom has blessed others with.

      You cannot call yourself a Christian and vote these corrupt men into power over you.

      “A no vote for God. Give me a break. It shouldn’t even be a consideration.”

      In this at least, you are correct: Our Nation’s Motto is; “In God We Trust”. For the Democrats to have omitted God from their platform was quite revealing, as was the rigged “vote” to change the platform’s language to include God, and Jerusalem as Israel’s capital again. No, again you are correct; it should have never even been a consideration.

      By the way, you’ll find the website that you’ve been searching for, to the left of this one, I think that you’ll be happier there, they have free koolaid for you to drink over there! Let me wish you a happy indoctrination.

    Did God take note on the way they did vote? If he did, he is probably watching you to see if you vote for them come November, or whether you turn away from these shameless and depraved ones who rejected God, and country, and all that is sane. Remember that when you go to the polls. We may not see you, but God does!

    The Democrats have done a masterful job of distracting the American public from the total failure of the Obama administration to deal with the economy, his radical and socialist vision for the country, his defanging of our national defense, his uncontrolled borrowing and spending, the long term unemployment that is forcing average Americans to do things they would never have done just to survive, the fact that there now are 100 million Americans on welfare, 47 million on foodstamps, and one out of seven Americans now living essentially in poverty.

    They keep bringing up abortion, women’s rights, Bain Capital, immigration, etc. and it is like the Captain of a cruise ship up on top rearranging the deck chairs while the ship is sinking. It is all a distraction from the core issues that we need to deal with and should be debating before the elections in November.

    Obama wants another term, to do what? The 23 million Americans out of work or under employed just trying to hang on until the economy turns around cannot wait any longer. We need someone in there that has the experience and knowhow to fix this situation, and the Romney/Ryan team is the perfect combination of work experience and government service to figure a way out of this marass.

      He who thinks he walks on water will soon be moon walking on the Lake of Fire. The nails he would put in Christ’s hands, feet and candidacy will become the scorched toenails of his overheated dancing feet of political entertainment. He can only admire himself so long in the mirror that is backed with the silver of other people’s stolen money, and stolen ideas. His wealth is only the 30 pieces of silver taken by our Judas Goat President to sell the workable truths of the cross down with river in the double crossed sign of an American Socialist Swastika that has become the vote revealed true sign of the current Democrat Party

    The Democrat Party [I don't know why people say democratic] since 1968 has become more and more the Socialist / Communist Party of the United States. They claim to stand for values when in actuality they will not ‘stand’ for anything that represents the true values of God and country. Sooooo to see them go off the deep end in their reorganized platform is not at all unforeseen. I came back from South Viet Nam in December 1969 and took a look at the reality facing this country. It was obvious that there was only one standard bearer of the constitution of the United States of America [the Republican Party]. I went to Viet Nam; I was too young to drink, too young to vote, too young to matter[yet old enough to get shot at and take the incoming mail]; but by God’s grace I came back home and I made myself a promise that when the polls were open I would be there to voice my 2 cents worth. I have never voted Democrat; whereas my dad always voted Democrat: the difference being that in my dad’s day the Democrats stood for something. Not so since 1968.

      Been there/done that, exactly.

      Except it was Oct 1968 and I was still too young to vote.

      A minor point of order: Actually the Democratic change started immediately with LBJ on Nov 22, 1963 as he assumed the office of POTUS upon the assassination of JFK.

      But wow upon wow, using taxpayer dollars to buy loyalty and votes, did he ever come on hard, strong and FAST, with social changes that were the genesis of the entitlement/giveaway/govt is god mess we’re in today!

    Although I see rightwingers making a fuss about religious nonsense, I, as a Conservative, think we should leave mysticism out of the political arena, and focus on the many things that the left advocates that is harmful to America.

    Quite frankly, about the ONLY thing I agree with on the Democrats’ overall platform is not making religion an issue. Jesus told us to “Render unto to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s” [such as politics]. If you want to believe in “God,” fine. But those of us who reject that notion as fantasy are likewise free to disregard what is nonsense to us.
