Meeting Scott Walker Tuesday, Jun 23 2009 

     About two weeks ago, I went up to Wisconsin on a vacation. There I conversed with old friends, swam, etc. However, there was one thing that stood out room other vacations: Meeting multiple political figures at a dinner.

     Scott Walker is running for the governor of Wisconsin. His opponent, Jim Doyle, has done a wonderful joib of being Liberal.  Mr. Walker has a huge success in Milwaukee, the largest city, as mayor. He brought major reforms and reduced debt by at least 40%.

     Jim Doyle, on the other hand, is an idiot. Don’t believe me? Perhaps you have heard of Kleenex, the tissue. Well, that is manuactured by Kimberly-Clark, Inc. Kimberly-Clark USED to be based in Wisconsin. Ater a year or two o Jim Doyle, they let or Texas. Why? I’ll tell you why: Jim Doyle raised the business taxes to the point where Wisconsin is now number 4 in the nation for business tax. When Kimberly-Clark left, so did a lot of jobs.

     When I went to the dinner, I immediately saw Congressman Vern Ehlers, who would later be speaking.

     Throughout the dinner, Mr. Walker pointed out the flaws of our governor, and our state, and what he wanted to do to fix them. If I had to vote in the 2010 election, I would put my vote on Mr. Walker. You can visit his site here.

EDIT: I apologize for mistakes. I knew Mr. Walker was in a position of power of Milwaukee, so I incorrectly assumed it was the city. As it turns out, he is the executive for the county, not the city.

Roe v Wade Paper Friday, May 22 2009 

Roe v Wade iSearch Paper

Week One: Hello, mommy! I’m your baby! I’m inside of you right now and I’ll be out in less than nine months. I love you, mommy! Month Two: Mommy, guess what? I’m two months old now! I can move too! Everything is present on me that is on you, mommy! My heart began to beat almost five weeks ago. Month Three:  Mommy, I heard you talk to that doctor today. I didn’t like him. He said I wasn’t anything, mommy, that I wasn’t your baby. I’m scared… please don’t kill me, mommy.  One Week Later:  The fetus, which you just heard, is dead. Casually doing a day’s work, the abortionist collapsed Joey’s skull. In fact, Dr. Beverly McMillan shattered the skull of “Joey” by inserting a sharp tool up through his nasal cavity Joey bled to death. The date? January, 1975; two years after Roe v Wade was handed down. That, my friends, is the face of abortion. Roe Versus Wade is partly responsible for the scene just described, and it is truly saddening. It must be stopped. Roe v Wade should be unconstitutional and violates the morals set forth by the Bible for all people.  

            When someone has an abortion, they silently annihilate the two things: The values set forth by our founding fathers, and our God, and a human life.. Roe versus Wade is unconstitutional; killing is never right, and Roe v Wade violates many original amendments of the constitution. Amendment X gives powers not specifically assigned to the federal government to the states. The federal government does not have the right to enforce the laws upheld in Roe vs. Wade, you see, because nowhere

in the original constitution does anyone mention the matter of abortion or whose issue it is. However, that is not the only thing unconstitutional. When someone has an abortion, they destroy the two things: The values set forth by our founding fathers, and a human life.  Amendment IX safeguards people from inalienable rights, as long as they are innocent, and fetuses are certainly innocent. Thus, the fetus is something that the constitution is bound to protect. Finally, I want to stress the fact that none of the original amendments, rights, or other legally binding decrees support (or express disproval (original laws, that is)) of abortion. So, the decision must be left to the states if they wish to abide by the Constitution.

            If you’re a Christian, an abortion is definitely unethical. Abortions horridly exterminates God’s children – babies.  The Holy Bible states: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart;” (NIV Bible, Jer. 1.5). Along with that, we have a word from  the apostle Paul: “But when God, who set me apart from birth and called me by his grace….” (NIV Bible, Gal. 1:15). Finally, I have a question: What if Jesus was aborted? God gave us free will, did he not?  Jesus, or Paul, or Luke, or ANYONE in the Bible could have been aborted, seeing as abortions have been recorded in the Egyptian Ebers Papyrus, an ancient Egyptian medical papyrus, as early as 1550 BC. We could have a whole different Bible if this were so! Anyone could have been aborted, and that is a reason why the Bible – and God – prohibits it.   

            Abortion is wrong; not only is it unconstitutional, it is unholy. Just think with me for a moment. As yourself, “What if I had been aborted?”  Abortion is a cruel,

cruel thing. I leave you with these quotes. One is part of Scripture, dictated by the Messiah Himself, Jesus, and the other is by Samuel Johnson

            “See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you, that their             angels in heaven continually behold the face of My Father who is in heaven”             (Matthew 18:10).

            “An Injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere.” – Samuel Johnson

 

 

Dr. Beverly McMillan, a former abortionist, converted to Christianity some thirty years ago. She is now a member of the national Right-to-Life group, one that is a major component of the anti-choice cause. The scenario I described in my introductory paragraph is technically fictional. However, Dr. McMillan performed many such abortions as I described there, especially in January of 1975.

What Is a Libertarian? Saturday, May 2 2009 

I’ve been getting thins a lot (not necessarily here) so I’m going to go ahead and explain it here. A libertarian, like a Liberal or Conservative, is an ideology. Although there is a party called the Libertarian Party, usually Libertarian is used in the tersm of the ideology. The Libertarian Party is the third largest in the US. 

 

As you can see in the chart below, a Libertarian is a fuse of the Liberals and Conservatives. Like Republicans, they emphasize the minimization of government. In fact, they advocate this more than any other ideology. The opposite of a Libertarian is a Statist, who believes government control is the ideal and that the government should guide all of our lives. To Statists, the ideal is government power.

 

Libertarians are commonly prochoice, anti tax, not for universal health care, and for gay marriage. According to LP.org, the Libertarian Party’s official site,

We [Libertarians] defend the rights of individuals to unrestricted freedom of speech, freedom of the press and the right of individuals to dissent from government itself. …

We oppose any abridgment of the freedom of speech through government censorship, regulation or control of communications media, including, but not limited to, laws concerning: 

  • Obscenity, including “pornography”, as we hold this to be an abridgment of liberty of expression despite claims that it instigates rape or assault, or demeans and slanders women; …
  • Electronic bulletin boards, communications networks, and other interactive electronic media as we hold them to be the functional equivalent of speaking halls and printing presses in the age of electronic communications, and as such deserving of full freedom;
  • Electronic newspapers, electronic “Yellow Pages”, and other new information media, as these deserve full freedom.

So, in short, they do not support censorship — no matter what the circumstance. The ideal for a LIbertarian is freedom. The less government, the better. According to them, the government only exists to establish rights and protect them, not to do all the things they do today.
