George W. Bush is a self-defense, Wild West cowboy from 1950s and 60s TV. He is disingenuous about it in addition. It's a cover for lawlessness, for reckless, lethal, evil imperialism and greed. Preemption is a phony cover.

Barack Obama ran on a campaign of attacking people regardless of sovereignty issues. He has made clear that he will attack people in Afghanistan and Pakistan to hunt down and to kill militant, fundamentalist Muslims. He will do this based upon secret plans. The common people will not know whether the people being targeted are truly the enemies of the American people. Those targeted people will be lumped together as a blob under the labels Taliban and al Qaeda. The legitimate grievances of those people will not be forthrightly addressed and corrected. They will be given lip-service.

George W. Bush has attacked within Pakistan and Syria and other places around the world using remote-controlled drones and covert special-ops military and paramilitary teams. These actions have not made the world a better place. The young children of U.S. military personnel deployed to other lands are experiencing great emotional difficulties. Huge and long-lasting behavioral problems are on the rise. Think about the children in other countries who have been attacked by the U.S. George W. Bush's actions have helped to create another generation of terrorists at home and around the world only so much more disturbed and lethal.

Time and again, we read about the American military having attacked wedding party after wedding party where innocent women and children have been mowed down and blown up. It's depraved. The U.S. military is sick. It is a disease. It is a cancer that needs to be removed. It must be dismantled. The world must have total disarmament.

Barack Obama is for the death penalty. He wants to expand its use even at a time when DNA evidence has proven that scores of people are and have been on death row who are innocent. How many innocent people have "the people" murdered using capital punishment? Yet, this president elect is for expanding the use of capital punishment. Even if we could be absolutely positive of guilt, what killing others does is hardened hearts only making things worse. It is hardened hearts that cause the problem in the first place. It's a vicious cycle that this president elect doesn't seem to comprehend. Heaven help us.

Barack Obama has and will continue to surround himself with the same old power structure. He is not much of a change. He is not about getting rid of evil within. He's about reprioritizing and adjusting evil, placing emphasis in different places is all.

Barack Obama is beholden to big money and big business, consolidation, and plutocrats running the show from behind the scenes. He will disappoint the common people. At best, he will do minor things to placate the commoners. He will have to be dragged to doing right.

Also, he is not nearly as smart as so many of his followers seem to think. He is a wind tester. He has done and will do what the most voters want and will buy. Of course, that's secular, coercive democracy and antichrist. It will fail. America will get exactly that for which it voted. It is not the best but far from it. The Empire is in serious trouble, and Barack Obama isn't going to save it. He isn't offering what will save the world. He doesn't have it in his heart. He can't bring forth.

Nevertheless, if God will bless him, Obama will truly change. Obama has to want that though. Does he want it? Do you want it for him and for yourself and all others impacted?


The following should appear at the end of every post:

According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":

Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.

Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.

Political Campaign Intervention

Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.

Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.

Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:

  • Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
  • Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
  • Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
  • Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
  • Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office

Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:

  • The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
  • Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
  • We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
  • When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
  • It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
  • We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
  • We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
  • When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
  • We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
  • It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.

And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
