Division and Hypocrisy

I am so tired of the division and hypocrisy in our country! I was raised in a loving Christian home and taught to love my neighbor as myself. Love your enemies and pray for those that despitefully use you. I was taught we are all brothers and sisters in Christ (if you are a Christian) and we all bleed red no matter what our skin color is. When I see people, I don't see races or color, I see people, hearts, a brother or sister. But let me tell you something. Most of the time, actions speak louder than words. If you are going to attack me for the way I believe and view things, maybe you should do some in depth research of the opposite of my beliefs and then weigh out the good and the bad.

I'm tired of Christians (well, everyone for that matter) belly aching about the direction our country is heading but not doing anything about it or sitting back and keeping their mouth shut because they don't want to "stir the pot." I've got news for you. The pots been stirred!! If you lose friends because of differences of beliefs and opinions, I have to wonder, were they ever really your friend to begin with?? A true friend will love you and stand by you even in the differences. If they are a true friend, you can sit down and have a political debate or a debate about religion and still walk away friends in the end. Maybe even stronger friends because though you may not think the same, you have a better understanding of WHY that person believes as they do!

I was always taught, actions speak louder than words but sometimes, action means standing up and having a voice! Voicing your words!

What got all this started? Well, I was listening to the radio this morning and I got steamed up, angered, outraged over something I heard on there and I KNEW if I came on here saying anything against ANY muslim, someone would throw the racist card at me and if you know me, you KNOW that is far from the truth! One of the other reasons this got me so steamed up is that I'm married to a Jew wich makes my kids part Jewish. So basically, everyone I love that lives under my roof are Jewish and for that reason, are much hated by muslims. If you are a mom and you know that someone (or a massive group of someones) has much hatred towards your children's heritage, I think you would be outraged as well. David Horowitz goes around the country speaking about our freedoms and fighting for our civil rights. He goes into many colleges and gives speaches. Most of which are being attended by a large number of Muslims. Would you like to know why? Because David Horowitz is an American Jew. He was born and raised by Jewish parents. David doesn't just get his information by what he's been taught being raised as a Jew because believe it or not, Mr. Horowitz was once a leftist. What he saw and experienced caused him to move to the right. He was once even involved with the black panthers before he became a conservative. So, if any man has a right to speak about our views and our rights, I believe this man, who has been on both sides seems qualified to me. When he goes into these colleges promoting his views and concerns, he's always confronted by some of the muslims at that school. He asks all of them if any of them will voice their disapproval of Hamas (if you don't know about current day Hamas, google it. There is a BUNCH of info out there) Hamas supporters believe in the genecide of all Jews yet not ONE Muslim would stand and say they disagree with this view. IN AMERICA!!! Hamas leader has been quoted as saying he wished all Jews would return to Israel so that he wouldn't have go out looking for them and when the students were asked if they were for or against this statement, they respond "for it." IN AMERICA!!!!

So am I angry that our govt. is fighting Arizona on strict illegal immigration laws? Heck yeah!!! Am I angry that we have a president that has taken more vacation days than work days? HECK YEAH!!!! Am I angry that when our country is in a depression and our men are STILL in Iraq and fighting for another countries freedom that our administration would rather be golfing, or on the beach, or at Martha's vineyard than trying to FIX our situations??? HECK YEAH!!!! Am I angry that we still have people in New Orleans and all along the coast of Louisiana without a home because of the hurricane that swept through there YEARS ago yet we'd rather focus on Haiti than New Orleans? HECK YEAH!!!! Am I angry that we had BILLIONS of gallons of oil spewing up into our waters and our coast line and the current administration refused help in cleaning it for so long...all while American's were losing their jobs because of it...instead, it was viewed as a photo opp? Excuse my french but HELL YES I'M ANGRY!!! But what I'm most angry at is hearing people quietly tell me what they think is wrong with our country and what they don't like but sit back and do nothing. Don't whisper it to 1 person, shout it to many!!! Don't tell me, write your state represenative and your governor. They do have email these days. Don't bash me for being concerned where my country is heading and what the future of my children is looking like. And for petes sake, don't come complaining to me when we become a socialist country when you won't stand up and fight for what freedom's we DO still have left! No, I'm not racist. I have one of the most diverse families I've seen in a long time. I AM against some of the radical views of some who associate themselves with certain groups. Hamas and black panthers being top of that list.

I love my God, my family, my country, my friends and I'll fight for every one of you! That's what I'm doing when I stand up for what I believe. Fighting for YOUR freedoms as well as mine!
God bless America!
OH, here is the clip that originally got me riled up and if you go to you tube and google, you will find MANY MANY more!

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
