"Our party cannot be all things to all people. It can't be.
Our loudest opponents on the left are never going to like us
so let's stop trying to curry favor with them." Rick Perry
Jefferson penned the opening words in the Declaration of Independence to inspire opposition to the political belief of the era: The Divine Right of Kings;
We hold these truths to be self-evident,
that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator
with certain unalienable Rights,
that among these are Life, Liberty
and the pursuit of Happiness -
...and it would appear that a certain faction would like for us to return to a time when the populace will be once again governed by the government (A Christian government) Will the President of a Christian Nation rule by and through divine right? When a man such as Rick Perry states that "as President, I will end Obama's war on religion," I am frightend. His message was openly anti-gay, unapologeticlly divisive and sounded Crusade inspired.
When Jesus begins to wear a gun and then declares everyone as heretics and atheist if they don't tow the party line, we need to listen. The propagating of Christianity through force and violence is "The faith that made America strong" by Rick Perry's definition of things. What other form of faith can he be possibly referring to if it is not the same faith that was used to subdue the Americas, beginning with Columbus?
"I certify to you that, with the help of God, we shall powerfully enter your country and shall make war against you; and shall subject you to the yoke and obediance of the church - and shall do you all mischief that we can, as to vassals who do not obey and refuse to receive their Lord and resist and contradict him" CC
Shall we round up the gay men and woman and segragate them or place them in camps? Shall we proclaim, "Merry Christmas" and "Christmas Tree" as a government mandate every December?
Does any of this sound familiar?
Rick Perry is a dangerous man.
