Liberals relax! Republicans are helping you!
As Daniel Horowitz said in his recent article, “The real problem is that Republicans have already adopted all of the premises and messaging of the other side [liberals/democrats]. As Mark Levin said earlier this week, ‘Rather than confront the Left at the base of their arguments, Republican officials by and large live in fear of principles they proclaim at election time but reject at governing time‘” (emphasis mine).
I had a few short thoughts today about health care I’d like to share (which means it isn’t as refined as normal).
When the insurance companies are forced to cover preexisting conditions they are no longer insurance companies. Here’s why. This is like someone having their $100,000 house burn down and then getting fire insurance policy for $100 per month with an up front payout (it would take about 83 years to pay $100,000). The insurance company isn’t going to make that deal. Insurance covers what might happen in the future, not what has happened in the past.
I am seeing a lot of people talking, opinion pieces, and news articles about how we should get rid of the electoral college due to the popular vote higher for one candidate and the electoral college being higher for the other candidate. Notice I’m writing this AFTER the election and not before. That’s because few people are concerned before their candidate loses. If you believe in a pure democracy and do not support the republican form of government, I can totally understand why you would want it dismantled. I hope this musing a reminder of its function and encourages you regarding our system of government—while it’s not perfect it’s one of the best the world has seen.
“What does it mean to be logical? If logic indeed means “correct reasoning,” then who gets to decide if a given line of reasoning is correct? Since God is the truth, it is His reasoning that is ultimately the standard for correct reasoning. Hence, to be logical is to think in a way that is consistent with the character of God as revealed in the Bible” (Understanding Genesis, Dr. Jason Lisle, pg. 141).
Let those sentences sink in, they really are profound and helpful when making important decisions.
Why do I start this post with a quote about logic? Because we need to use logic when electing a presidential candidate. This will become clear in a moment.
A demon lord of hell laying out the game plan for America’s destruction? Yes.
Is Nefarious, the aforementioned demon lord, prideful and arrogant? Yes.
Does he insult his reader? You bet. (What demon who hates your guts wouldn’t?)
Does he believe he cannot fail, and blatantly wags this “fact” in your face every time he gets a chance? Of course.
Is this a must read book? Definitely. It is a playbook from hell after all.
Nefarious lays everything out. I do mean everything. He is so arrogant and believes his plan is so successful, he holds nothing back. (You’ll even chuckle a few times as he laughs in your face.)
America’s founding and history was particularly challenging for Nefarious to unravel. Why do you think this is? Well, if you can believe him he explains what this special challenge was and why corruption was mandatory. He also relates the theology of his Master’s fall from heaven and why demons rebel, and how he entices our human nature to do evil.
As the new year progresses, my hope is to inspire you to read more and love learning.
Why is learning important? In Fredrick Douglass’s first autobiography, he describes the process he went through when he realized how important reading and learning were. His master triggered this desire after he was told: “Learning will spoil the best nigger. Now… if you teach that nigger [speaking of Douglass] how to read, there would be no keeping him. It would forever unfit him to be a slave” (pg. 56). Douglass said, of this new revelation, “I now understood what had been to me a most perplexing difficulty—to wit, the white man’s power to enslave the black man. It was a grand achievement, and I prized it highly. From that moment, I understood the pathway from slavery to freedom” (pg. 56-7). This concept applies to people in general. If you don’t want to be a slave of any kind, learn. By learning you will see deception and lies which can enslave the mind. The best way to do this is to read.
I have a few thoughts about recent issues in the news. Please read the links, they are intended as proof to what I am explaining. I hope to inform you with this information but also hope.
Freedom of Religion in the Cross-hairs
One of the main problems with this topic is people are so entrenched in their views they often are not willing to examine both sides with an open mind. I get it. No one likes to be told they’re doing something wrong. Also, I have family, friends and co-workers who are homosexual. I do not love them any less. Love does not mean agreement. While religious freedom is of central importance in this issue, there are social, cultural, physiological and emotional reasons why the government should not endorse homosexuality. It’s not simply one person loving another. I can’t change your mind on this, you have to do your own learning. Perhaps you would read why a homosexual does not want same-sex marriage, and discover what he calls The Big Lie?
