Senate Votes on Health Care Bill TONIGHT!

Tonight at 8:00 the Senate is voting on the Health Care Bill. This is the final state in getting the bill passed; if 60 people vote for it, the bill will be permanently passed. There will be no turning back once this bill is activated. Please pray that our Senators will remember that the American people do not want this bill (see my recent post), and they will do the right thing and vote NO. But most importantly, let us pray that whatever happens, it will be according to God's will, not man's will.

Will Our Sovereignty Be Signed Away Next Month?

In Copenhagen this December, the members of the United Nations are meeting to possibly sign a treaty, which would satisfy a "climate debt" that the wealthy countries - who have been "harming" the climate - owe to third-world countries, who have not been harming it. Most countries plan to sign this treaty, including the United States. However, this treaty will give the United Nations new power that will override that of our own government.

In this short video, a British expert on Climate Change, Lord Christopher Monckton, explains the dangers of the treaty. Watch the video to hear the shocking facts...

Video: Is Obama a Muslim?

I'm not sure that everything in this video is true, but it sure does raise some interesting questions. If Obama really is a Muslim, does that explain why he hesitates to send more troops to Afghanistan? If he believes in Islam, does his religion conflict with his duty as a president - just as the killer at Fort Hood had a conflicting religion with his duty as a soldier? If Obama is a Muslim, does it matter? Should we be concerned, or will it not affect his job as President of the United States? This video may prove that Obama is a Muslim... or it may not. You watch, and decide for yourself. If anything, it raises important questions that the White House needs to answer.

The Bill Narrowly Passes... But the Battle Isn't Over Yet!

I learned from AOL news this morning that the Representatives passed the Health Care Bill last night - NARROWLY. The final vote was 220 to 215! It is encouraging to know that at least some members of Congress hear our voices, and understand that a HUGE number of Americans do not want this bill! The battle isn't over yet, though. The bill still has to pass with the Senate. I pray that the Senators hear our voices, too, and decided to vote NO to this un-American, socialist bill!

Health Care Rally: From an Eyewitness

On Thursday I had the privilege of joining the rally on Capitol Hill, Washington DC, that protested Obama's new Health Care Bill. Congress is actually debating the bill as I write, and may be voting on it today or tomorrow. Twenty to forty-five thousand "tea-partiers" arrived on Thursday and peacefully demanded that congress vote NO on the bill. Here are some pictures from the event...

The Capitol Building

Before joining the rest of the gathering, my mom, brother and I stood around this tree and interceded for our government leaders and for our nation. We realized that no matter what we did to get involved, praying was the most powerful action we could take. (Leaning against the tree is the sign I carried during the protest.)

Angry "mobsters"... actually, the worst they did was chant and yell a little. Oh, and they HELD SIGNS! (I know, so violent...)

Most of the crowd consisted of elderly people, and families with kids and strollers. A dangerous bunch, indeed! We all came because we're scared about what is happening to our country; not because we're violent extremists.

I liked this sign. The government works for us, not vise versa... and when our leaders cease to represent what we believe, WE THE PEOPLE will vote them out!
The Capitol Building, and the flag commonly found at tea party rallies: a snake with the words "DON'T TREAD ON ME".
Leaving the rally. (Actually, it was technically a press conference... but it ended up being more like a rally!)
Another sign I liked.
As I left, I saw the Star-Spangled Banner waving in the breeze. (God bless America!)
So, some of you may be wondering... Why protest against the Health Care Bill? The answer is that this bill is a huge leap toward socialism in our country, and, well, some of us kind of LIKE having democracy instead of socialism! This 2,000-page bill will activate a complete government take-over of health care. It is estimated to cost over a trillion dollars (and the government's estimates are always low). It will include rationing of patients (e.g., if a 60-year-old Grandma needs surgery, and a 20-year-old needs the same surgery, the 20-year-old is more likely to get it and the Grandma might miss out). The bill will also pay for illegal aliens to have health care just like American citizens; even though Obama promised us it wouldn't, those who have read the bill say otherwise.

However, what I think is the worst part of Obama's health plan is that tax dollars will now fund abortion. This bill is un-American, unconstitutional, undemocratic; and 47% of doctors say they'll QUIT if it passes! It doesn't matter if we don't like the new health care - EVERYONE will be forced to use it. (Except maybe the government leaders who passed it on us. :-D)

As Congress prepares to vote on this bill, would you join me in praying for our country - especially praying that this bill doesn't pass? But no matter what, let us pray that God's will happens, and whatever happens will be for His glory.

I will conclude with two quotes from Thomas Jefferson:

"When the government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny."

"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent."

God Bless,
