Liberal movement is hypocritical

The idea for this country, contained in our founding documents, was revolutionary and brilliant, and it was about limited government, property rights, self-reliance and self-determination — which makes it a conservative concept from the start.

In today’s society there is a constant push from liberals to make you, the American citizen, feel bad about being patriotic or fundamentally Christian. You can’t be proud to see a flag flying. In some cases you can’t even wear a shirt with an American flag on it if it’s another country’s holiday or being politically incorrect you will be told to remove it.

And as for the U.S. Constitution, it does not grant us rights; rights in America are natural. The Constitution is a form of restraining order against the tyranny of those rights being taken away unlawfully. It’s the liberals that are single-handedly demolishing piece by piece the American Constitution.

Today’s hyper-liberal movement is the most hypocritical being in America. They crusade all about their willingness to tolerate anything and everything until that anything or everything doesn’t agree with them and suddenly it’s class action lawsuits up to the Supreme Court level if that’s what it takes. And let’s not forget the millions it eventually costs the taxpayers for them to get their way. They are literally getting paid to destroy the Constitution and our rights as citizens.

Now the evil canker of hyper-liberalism under the watchful eye of political correctness is trying to strong-arm churches, muzzling their freedom of speech and the freedom of the Holy Spirit. If there was ever a time for true born again Christians to not budge it’s now!

Let’s understand something right now. The biblically stated characteristics of a true Christian are love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance (Galatians 5:21-22). However, contrary to liberal indoctrination, NOWHERE is it stated in the Bible for the Christian to be weak, passive, naïve, uninformed or uninvolved.

As Jesus cleaned out the temple with a scourging whip flipping over the tables of all the liberal immorality (John 2:13-16), so are we expected to NOT BUDGE when it comes to the issues that matter most.

Was Jesus the troublemaker? Of course not. And it doesn’t make you the trouble maker either for standing up for conservative Godly principals and the Constitution of the United States of America. You can call this preacher-man a radical or a troublemaker if you want but just don’t number me with the cowards that are aiding and abetting the destruction of America.

I dearly love my country, I served over 13,000 miles in forward combat operations as a U.S. Army paratrooper in the Gulf War and I’d do it again tomorrow to save this country from Satan. For God & Country.
