DINSTARR has the right attitude.

Here is the thing. Control and taxation is the only things that government knows. It is the only thing they can do. They cannot feed anyone, they can take from one and feed another, whilst taking their CUT.

Mamabeth, I think will agree with me that her position does not actually refer to everyone having to go to God or that government does, it is that everyone must follow their own faith.

I am behind the ideal that government is there for one purpose and one purpose only, to enforce Natural Law. To do no harm to others or to not infringe on another's rights Life, Liberty and Property. Period.

Others will argue that we must punish those wrong doers of the past, this is wrong, we must forgive those of the past or there will be no future.

You must never put any power into any other's hands, that would or could be used to enforce one persons beliefs upon another. If you allow your government to enforce any ideal whatsoever, be it socialism, religion, etc ; you allow your government to make any decision it wants for the greater good, in the governments eyes. See where this has led us?

We must stop and turn back our government to the minimalist size that we can. And after many decades of peace and prosperity. We could maybe eliminate it all together.

edit to add-

Oh, the main thing to begin with, we eliminate the debt based currency and remove the federal reserve and the slave debt they have created over us.

I am a short-term pessimist but a long-term optimist. Personally, I dont think there is any solution to our current problems, because they are all rooted in a very corrupt system and perverted state of human consciousness.

I think a solution is coming...but first the old system will have to be destroyed, if not by the hands of man, then by the forces of nature. Then mankind will have to re-evaluate its priorities and deepen its connection with the natural or divine forces that ultimately rule everything in the universe. Only then can we rebuild a better society on a new and solid foundation.

We have a world of hurt to go through before things will get better, but I do believe they will get better, much better, in the long run. Of course, this may not occur until after you and I are dead and buried.

How do you know you're not worshipping a false pagan god? And what exactly would the rest of us jumping into this spiritual russian roulette accomplish?

I'm asking because I'm curious.

I know because my Bible tells me so!
Plus,I wasn't always a christian.I have
only accepted Jesus/Yeshua as my Saviour
in about the last five years.

So what makes the bible more true than the Koran? What led you to your faith?

I have always believed in God and Jesus/Yeshua.
I haven't always wanted to do Their will in my life.
I wanted to do things my way!
Bottom line...submission and obediance to God's will.
If america would turn back to worshipping God.He
would protect this country from her enemies,both
foreign and domestic!
