The Reverend Samuel Rodriquez, president of the evangelical National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference said: "My message to Republican leaders is if you're anti-immigration reform, you're anti-Latino, and if you're anti-Latino, you are anti-Christian church in America, and you're anti-evangelical." I don't know how to tell you this Senor Sammy, but you are way off the mark here. It seems the Rev. Samuel is attempting to throw a guilt trip on Christians who are also American patriots. It may work for some, but I encourage all evangelical Christians to hold fast to your patriotism, and your country and it's immigration laws. Even the infamous Rev. Dr, Richard Land is getting into the act. He said: "Hispanics are religious, family oriented, pro-life, and entrepreneurial. They are hard-wired social conservatives, unless they're driven off." I do not intend to mince words with Dr. Land, but there are no "social conservatives", one is either a Socialist, or a Conservative. Social Conservatives are misnamed. The very terminology is a play on words. With all do respect to Dr. Richard Land, you are very misguided, perhaps you have been reading too much of Saul Alinsky. Immigration reform is not needed in this country, what is needed, is enforcement of our current immigration laws, which by the way are exceedingly more liberal than any other nation, especially Mexico. In an effort to somehow reconcile some type of Obama immigration reform, many evangelical leaders came up with this ludicrous idea. "Illegal aliens who are working in jobs that once belonged to U.S. citizens should be required to pay $1,000.00 restitution, and learn to speak English." I ask you, if you came home one day and entered your house to find a family of Illegal aliens. Would it be okay if they just handed you a $1,000.00 and promised to learn English, and they get to keep your house? Any religious leader who would condone illegal aliens taking jobs of American citizens, who are now on state unemployment rolls, for a mere $1,000.00 restitution fine and the promise to learn English, should be stripped of any authority to lend moral guidance to anyone.
During a conversation with a dear friend of mine, who is in fact is a Baptist Minister, and someone I hold in high esteem. He queried me about my opinion of a local Hispanic ministry. He was torn on this subject. In my opinion, he is a patriot, and he is truly a man of God. I understand his dilemma, and I empathize with his need and desire to reach all men for Christ, regardless of their country of origin, or ability to speak English. One thing for certain, my conversations with this man always leave me with some deep inquisitions of my own conscience. I chose to re-read the the article from Dr. Richard Land, where he said: " My opinion on Hispanics may split the old conservative coalition, but it won't split the new one. If the new one is going to be the governing coalition, it's going to have a lot of Hispanics in it. And you don't get a lot of Hispanics in your coalition by engaging in anti-Hispanic anti-immigration rhetoric." Once again, Dr. Land is well off plumb. He keeps referring to "Immigration" when the subject is "Illegal Immigration". These two terms are miles apart. Dr. Land, by his statements, does nothing but confirm my suspicions, that gathering a flock of Illegal aliens into the fold, is nothing but a numbers game to many Catholic and Protestant leaders. Bryan Fischer, director of issue analysis for the American Family Association said this: " I find it extremely problematic from a Judeo-Christian standpoint to grant citizenship to people whose first act on American soil was to break an American law." I couldn't agree more, or have said it better myself.
Regarding the salvation of the lost, after painstakingly searching the Bible, I have been unable to find any scripture, either in the old, or the new testament that endorses or encourages conversion from one professing Judeo-Christian religion to another, in order to gain salvation. If the goal is to bring people to Christ, and to convince them that their salvation can only be attained by accepting Jesus Christ as their savior, and to be born again by the spirit, there is no doubt in my mind that it can be accomplished without conversion from one organized religion to another. John 14:6 "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father except through Me." Jesus didn't say "except through me, oh and ah, you need to be a Catholic, or a Protestant in order for it to happen!!!"

Congress should have passed a Congressional and Presidential Ethics Reform Bill instead. This country could use a bill like that. One that would facilitate the arrest and prosecution of those who were really at fault regarding the housing market, and mortgage crisis. People like Chris Dodd, and Barney Frank, oh, oh, oh wait a minute these two are the guys that were commissioned by Barack Obama to to draft the Financial Reform Bill. Now, I see why Freddie and Fannie are exempt from any new oversight.
This Financial Reform Bill, may well be the final nail in the coffin of America's economy. Taxes. levies, regulations, rules, all aimed at the small businesses that are the engine of our capitalistic free market economy. Think 10% unemployment is bad? Wait until this Bill sinks into the private business sector. It has nothing in it to spur business expansion, or to encourage new business development, that means less jobs, more unemployment. More unemployment, means less consumer spending, less consumer spending means, yep, you guessed it, more unemployment. It's a vicious circle, and it's being motivated by none other than the current president of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama.
In order for Progressives to make all citizens totally dependent on government, that government must control everything. So far, the Obama government controls over 60% of industry, over 80% of mortgage and loan finance, 85% of the health care and insurance industry, 70% of U.S. automobile manufacturing, the EPA has been given control over the energy industry, and Obama has given Interpol free rein over law enforcement. Obama has been busy, very busy. He promised his constituents he would fundamentally transform America, and that is exactly what he is doing. The United States you woke up to this morning, is not the United States you were fortunate enough to grow up in. Our Republic is no longer of the people, by the people, or for the people. Our freedom to speak, to work, to prosper is being taken away by leaps and bounds. We the People must vote for Conservatives with Christian principles and morals. We the People must stop this denigration and degeneration of our country, our constitution, our freedom, and our liberty. The sand in the hourglass is quickly draining. Vote this November!!!
Chief Seattle of the Suquamis Tribe said this: "We are witnessing the end of living, and the beginning of survival." As that statement was true for our Native Americans, so it is true for us at this hour, at this time in history. But as the Indians did, we must make our "great one last stand." I firmly believe that our last stand is this November's mid-term election. Make it count my fellow Americans, make it count!
God help this nation.

Please notice at the end of each Blog Post, I have made it easier for you to share my "We The People Blog" with your friends and family. You can share this Blog by simply clicking on the one of the various share buttons. Please use them, and use them often, the more people we inform regarding the state of our nation, the more people we can awaken from the Obama slumber.
The above Youtube video, is a must see, and a must pass along. It is very professionally done, and conveys an extremely powerful message to Obama, and his minions. I urge you to turn up your sound and watch this in it's entirety, and then send it to everyone in your address book.
We must stand together, and fight this treacherous president, or we will lose our freedom, and our liberty. Obama is doing all he can to remove God from our nation, to corrupt the morals of our children, and to bring Islam to power in America. We can not under any circumstances allow this to happen.
You must get out and vote for Christian Conservatives this November. If High moral standards, honesty, integrity, and God are not reestablished in our government, all, I am afraid will be lost. If you can vote, then vote, if you are eligible to vote, and you are not registered to vote, then shame on you!!! Get registered, and get out and vote!!! Our country, and your children and grand children are depending upon you.
GOD help our nation. All things are possible with GOD!!!
