A state which had previously been thought of as a lock and indeed a must-win for any Democrat seeking the Presidency, Pennsylvania is now tightening up in the remaining days. The latest polling data indicates a mere 4 point advantage for President Obama in a state he won handily in 2008 by 10 points.

Report from CBS Philly:

HARRISBURG, Pa (CBS) — A new Franklin and Marshall Poll shows that Republican Mitt Romney is now within striking distance of President Obama in Pennsylvania.

Less than a week before election day, the Franklin and Marshall College Poll shows Romney now trailing Obama by just four percentage points among likely Pennsylvania voters – 45-percent to 49-percent, compared to a nine point deficit in a September F&M survey. Poll director Terry Madonna says Romney is closing in, but he may be running out of time.

“Momentum is with Romney,” Madonna says. “Four percentage points is still a big hurdle. It is doable for Governor Romney, but very, very difficult.”

Madonna says for the first time all year in the F&M poll, Romney now leads Obama in the category of who can best fix the economy.

As stated in the article, time is now Romney’s enemy in this case since the President is hoping to run out the clock and put an end to any GOP insurgency in these typically Democratic strongholds.

The battleground is expanding in states like Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania continue to tighten. On the other hand, President Obama still holds a lead on average in all of those states though the needle has been moving in Romney’s direction over the month of October.

  1. Scary…to think the Mitt may establish another dynasty!

    Barack wants to destroy our Freedoms and our Nation — he is the evil we know!

    But, if Mitt gets into the White House — expect An American Tragedy!

    His 5 Mormon Sons are getting groomed to take over…and create a Dynasty of little Mormon Mitts for decades to come!

    Now, that is truly scary!
    ————————————-

    Vote Gary Johnson — do not vote for the lesser of these two evils!

    • You know i don’t know y u would call our president evil. Do u know the meaning of evil? Evil is what the other guy has been planning to do. Like cutting pbs funding n planned parenthood. That’s evil n disguise as we all know it. U r correct bout the other guy n his sons. Tho ur guy u feel is better for the job is a nobody to the world n simply m wasting time energy n money even running for president. So again y r u voting for a person not n the run to win. Obama is doing a better job than the last president n requires another term to make all u not n falling believers actual believers that he is who he said he is for n that is for the ppl appointed by our father from above to turn this country around for the better. Y else did a black man get elected president. It was a plan we should not question.

      • Malikka:

        I always figured that Bush turned off people so badly that they didn’t even want to take a chance on a white man again–so Obama and Hillary fought for the job. . . .

          • Malikka:

            My guess is that Obama asked Hillary to be vice president in the second term, but she didn’t want a job that really has no power, except to break ties in the senate.

            But if it had been Obama-Clinton, Romney would have given up long ago.

          • Billy:

            Yeah, that’s how sick we were of Bush. But we must have gotten over it, because the GOP picked the whitest man in America. He’s even whiter that that white cop who was on Sanford & Son. And just as uncomfortable in his skin.

            • Bet he felt right at home there. Kind of like America before he got in office. Little of any ID required to open a bank account there. Just give them any name and state you are not an American. Tell them you want a debit card with no name on it and you are all set and judgement free. No shyster lawyer can lay a hand on what you deposit like they can here.

            • Well I still can’t get over how a politician from Chicago ever got near the ring let alone win the nomination. Then being black with the track record of black politicians. Now I will cut them some slack here because things are usually pretty bad in their sections way before they get elected. Few if any have turned things around.

  2. I take it that Gary Johnson doesn’t have any sons?!? Surfisher, you are really going off the deep end here. If any of his 5 sons have something to offer the nation, then the nation will vote that son in. Why not spend your comment space telling us something useful about Gary Johnson rather than spinning such a tall tale about a Mitt-dynasty? For example, how does Johnson feel about FEMA and federal funding for disaster-stricken areas, such as Sandy created?

      • Look for the last time n last 8yrs Bush screwed up the economy left by Clinton!!!!! U r sadly mistaken. The parties have not come together as a party team that has the best interest at heart of the ppl. Now the only one i saw making an attempt to change things in our country is our current president. His plans for the wealthy to pay their weight n taxes they earn was the best strategy idea ever. But the folks would not agree to it even though it would make the difference with our rising deficit. Everybody knows this n just don’t want to give him his respect

        • Malikka

          Because you’re a dyed-in-the-wool Ideologue, there is really nothing to converse about. You’re totally clueless to what is really going on around you. Hopefully, someday you will awaken from your trance and understand that you don’t matter in-the-least to ANY of these Politicians. So, go back to watching the MSNBC version of the Presidential Reality Show and be sure to text your vote to American Idol.

          Just so you know, nothing has changed and nothing will change.

        • So he took out Osama and the other guy wants to take out big bird. Just hope it doesn’t cost as much.

      • C he our President was ok in the beginning n then things n ppl changed how they feel bout us having a brother n the white house. C he’s a cool calm smart intelligent man that knows how to bring ppl together. Im confused y men r not favoring him now but much rather support a man who doesn’t have a clue bout the military foreign policies. N iu undecided right. No i would say u r lost.

  3. Don’t know how Johnson feels about FEMA, but I think we know how CHRIS CHRISTIE feels:

    • On the TODAY show: “The President has been outstanding in this.”

    • On MORNING JOE: “It’s been very good working with the President. He and his Administration have been coördinating with us. It’s been wonderful.”

    • ON CNN: Christie said that he had been mightily impressed by Obama’s accessibility throughout the crisis. “He gave me his number at the White House, told me to call him if I needed anything, and he absolutely means it.”

    • On CNN: What about the campaign? Christie said, “If he’s not bringing it up, you can be sure that people in New Jersey are not worried about that, primarily if one of the guys running isn’t.”

    • On FOX: Christie scoffed at the idea of Romney making a visit to New Jersey in order to inspect the damage. “I have no idea, nor am I the least bit concerned or interested.”

  4. We cannot take four more years of Obama !!He does not care about this country or our Military.
    He seems to see himself as King Obama, We need a honest American,As our President,Mitt Romney is that Man.I do not understand these ignorant people that because he is a Mormon,Last I heard we have a thing called freedom of religion,I would much rather have a Mormon ,than a man who beleives in the
    Islamic Religion,People if you want to continue to live in a free country,with free interprise,You better wake up ,I am 64 years old and I can never remember an election as important as this one.Please get out and vote for Mitt Romney !!And just for the record this has nothing to do with Skin Color,It has to do with a man who wants to detroy the greatest country in the world. God Bless The USA !
    Wanda in Alabama

    • Wanda — you can be anything you want on the internet.

      That does not make it true, however.

      My take is that you are a “Marlene” using another monicker — still makes you a Rmoney Shill.

      FYI — The Mormons stripped the richest man in the world, Howard Hughes, not only of his life, but his entire fortune!

      Now you want another Mormon to be able to do the same to our entire Nation?!?!?!

    • Wanda:

      Military spending under Obama has been DOUBLE the average for Bush–up from $450billion/year average, to $900billion/year average. Exactly how much DO you want him to spend? Also, Obama has focused no veteran care. While Congress will spend unlimited amounts on killing, they recently killed a tiny vetearans’ bill–saying we cannot “afford” to care for our veterans.

      • Pure fabrication of a reason for or against a candidate. Easy to see why we are in the mess we are in and it doesn’t look like it is going to stop any time soon.

    • Wow…. for someone who seems to support freedom of religion you sure seem intolerant of Islam…. sure there are crazy fanatics out there but it seems as though fanatics can come from any religion. I wonder… what religion was Hitler? How many Christians died in mass suicides? All I know is religion has no place in politics- you can’t claim to represent a nation when you are trying to force your own beliefs on everyone else. Romney wants to end abortion and try to convince Muslims that their religion is wrong. Scary to think of a man like that in charge of a country.

      • NavyVet:

        What surprises me is that these people don’t realize how hard Romney worked for years to “try to convince Christians that THEIR religion is wrong.”

  5. I guess you have been living on that planet that the Mormons think they came from Wanda, as the President is not Muslim. That Mormon is a Bishop in his church and would love to have all of us 47%’rs at his beck and call. This is an important election for the soul of our nation and Myth RobMe has no soul as he flips and flops all over the place telling lie after lie. Get a grip or we will be in another needless war and his sons won’t be going as they are to good for that. Wake up and keep Obama in office.

  6. In Pennsylvania; West Virgina; Central & Southern Ohio, you will see signs that read:

    “FIRE OBAMA, SAVE COAL!”

    This is coming from generations of Democrats who don’t like the Dictator-in-Chief’s
    clean coal, green energy policies.

    • FYI — The Mormons stripped the richest man in the world, Howard Hughes, not only of his life, but his entire fortune!

      Now another Mormon could do the same to our entire Nation…if it gets elected!

      Vote for Anyone, but Mitt the American Destroyer!
      ——————————————————————–

      I chose to vote for Ron Paul’s Libertarian Party — Gary Johnson this time, who is on all 50 State Ballots. And should Ron Paul run again in 2016, he’s only option will be the Libertarian Ticket!!!!!

      A Vote for the Libertarian Candidate NOW, is a vote for Ron Paul later!

  7. A poll via phone is not the same as a voter going to the polls. Foods stamps and free phones represent votes he can count on. The unions will turn out the votes and the Romney voters will sit home. Few will vote for Romney but many will vote against Obama. Now hate is stronger than love but are there enough haters?

    • In regards to your question ~ “Who Supplied Saddam the gas?”

      Alcolac International, a Baltimore chemical manufacturer already linked to the illegal shipment of chemicals to Iran, shipped large quantities of thiodiglycol (used to make mustard gas) as well as other chemical and biological ingredients, according to a 1989 story in The New York Times.

      * Nu Kraft Mercantile Corp. of Brooklyn (affiliated with the United Steel and Strip Corporation) also supplied Iraq with huge amounts of thiodiglycol, the Times reported.

      Wikipedia’s article on Iraq’s WMDs gives a good rundown of the international contributions:

      All told, 52% of Iraq’s international chemical weapon equipment was of German origin.
      Around 21% of Iraq’s international chemical weapon equipment was French.
      About 100 tons of mustard gas also came from Brazil.

      The United Kingdom paid for a chlorine factory that was intended to be used for manufacturing mustard gas.

      An Austrian company gave Iraq calutrons for enriching uranium. The nation also provided heat exchangers, tanks, condensers, and columns for the Iraqi chemical weapons infrastructure, 16% of the international sales.

      Singapore gave 4,515 tons of precursors for VX, sarin, tabun, and mustard gasses to Iraq.

      The Dutch gave 4,261 tons of precursors for sarin, tabun, mustard, and tear gasses to Iraq.

      Egypt gave 2,400 tons of tabun and sarin precursors to Iraq and 28,500 tons of weapons designed for carrying chemical munitions.

      India gave 2,343 tons of precursors to VX, tabun, Sarin, and mustard gasses.
      Luxemburg gave Iraq 650 tons of mustard gas precursors.

      Spain gave Iraq 57,500 munitions designed for carrying chemical weapons. In addition, they provided reactors, condensers, columns and tanks for Iraq’s chemical warfare program, 4.4% of the international sales.

      China provided 45,000 munitions designed for chemical warfare.

      • Like all the little Eichmanns with clean hands: These chemical weapons were developed by Iraq from materials and technology supplied primarily by West German companies as well as [61] the Reagan administration of the United States which also supplied Iraq with “satellite photos showing Iranian deployments”[62] and advised Hussein to bomb civilian targets in Tehran and other Iranian cities.[63] In a US bid to open full diplomatic relations with Iraq, the country was removed from the US list of State Sponsors of Terrorism. Ostensibly, this was because of improvement in the regime’s record, although former United States Assistant Secretary of Defense Noel Koch later stated, “No one had any doubts about [the Iraqis’] continued involvement in terrorism..

  8. Ignorance is bliss,All of you that want Obama four more years,You must not like making your own decisions about anything pertaining to your own life.I personly want to make my decisions about my insurance,SURE IF YOU ARE RECEIVING WELFARE,FOOD STAMPS,HAVE A FREE PHONE;MOST OF THE PEOPLE DRAWING DIABILITY SHOULDN’T BE.YEA I KNOW ITS A WHOLE LOT EASIER TO SET ON YOUR BUTT LET THE GOVERMENT KEEP YOU UP ,PROBLEM IS ALL US THAT WORK ,ARE THE ONES KEEPING YOUR SORRY REAR ENDS UP.ROMNEY IS WEALTHY AND SHOULD NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR WORKING HARD AND BEING SMART ENOUGH TO MAKE HIS MONEY GROW.GO AHEAD AND VOTE FOR OBAMA “YOU WILL WAKE ONE DAY AND REALIZE THE GOVERMENT HAS COMPLETE CONTROL OVER YOUR LIFE.I WAS RAISED TO WORK HARD,HELP PEOPLE THAT REALLY NEED HELP,
    GOD IS INCONTROL OF MY LIFE,OBAMA IS A PROVEN LIAR A DISGRACE TO THE OFFICE HE HOLDS.ROMNEY IS HONORABLE MAN AND HE WILL BRING AMERICA BACK TO HER GLORY.

    • Like with the Big Dig: “Mitt always had intentional indifference to the Turnpike Authority’s issues and the Big Dig’s problems,” Mihos says. “But he had a front seat to all of this and just chose to do nothing.”

    • Wanda

      To shower this Blog with the same ole’ Mittiot “jargon” which is parroted all over the airwaves by the Neo-Con main stream media – should NEVER be used as an excuse to boast your economic illiteracy.

      Once you realize that all of your “list” is BY DESIGN – and – PERPETRATED BY BOTH PARTIES – only then will you know that you’ve been LIED TO by those whom you’ve trusted in Government.

      As a Registered Republican, I know Betrayal is a very difficult thing to get over. Thus, I could never vote for either Romney or Obama.

      • I have never been on welfare or government anything but have the happy pleasure of having a small business, the AHCA has helped us in that we provided insurance for our employees even before it was in place. This year we actually got a check back from the insurance company and our rates have stayed low. The stimulus also helped our business and because of it and the help it gave municipalities we are still able to keep our doors open. This administration has not done everything that I would have liked but they are ending wars not starting them and Frank/Dodd is a good start on reigning in the masters of the universe that they call themselves, banks from eating all of our lunch. Romney is the most ignoble man I have ever had the misfortune of having to listen to. I believe my mother would call him a pathological liar, as he lies even when he does not have to. The fact that he lies about jobs being shipped to China, medicare, birth control, abortion, insurance,tax cuts for all, not adding to the deficit, faking donations from supporters to the Red Cross and the list goes on and on. He is by far the most disgusting politician I have ever seen. We are suppose to be civilized and civilization was how we came together and pooled resources (taxes) so that we have roads, bridges, safety, education,you get the picture. We are judged how we treat those least among us and the Romney’s of this world would march them off into the ocean and feel good about it. That is what disgusts me.

  9. @Wanda; just imagine yourself ‘president Romney’… you call him a honorable man, but this is the same person who flip/flops whenever he can…not a sign of good leadership, isn’t it? You can CAPS LOCK whatever you want, and scream the hell out of yourself but with your dear Mitt in command, you cannot even Understand how misrable that is!

    If you cannot understand politics, please shut up and just keep yourself busy reading People magazine please.

    • But Wanda is in the mainstream it is you that is in the minority. In this country, as in Greece, the majority rule as far as voting goes.

  10. Sounds like a whole lot of jealousy coming from all of you,people like you are going to vote for
    Obama know matter what ,Just remember you have got to live with it,your children and grandchildren will pay for it.Like I said before I was taught to work hard,help people that really need it.I will vote for a decent,honest man,you vote for a man that is a proven liar.I will give him credit “he is great campaigner that is all he has done for the last four years”He is also a great deceiver!! God Bless You All,I wish you well

      • Wanda

        Romney Vs Obama – Same Issues, Same Answers!

        Both Obama and Romney are funded by same lobbyists. Both have the same exact views on all topics of significance. Both blatantly lied to the public for years and have gotten away with it. Both will drive our great country into the ground if elected!

        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZLqsRqKFyI

        • Gee if we could only get back to ground level. We are so far in the hole we can’t see daylight. Now I know where the expression “dig your way to China” came from.

        • DT,

          There is NOT a snowball’s chance that your guy ~ Gary Johnson is going to get elected. The founding father’s set up a system of popular vote and electoral votes to keep the two party system.

          The closest that a Independent ever got was George Wallace in 1968 when he won almost ten million popular votes and carried 5 Southern states in the electoral college. Despite, his monumental feat, he was defeated and he was a Democratic governor and was a Democrat for many years, before he bucked the system!

          Gov. Rick Perry or Senator Rand Paul (both Republicans) might have a chance in 4 years, if the American people continue to loose faith in our two party system. It would take massive organization, let alone millions of dollars to gain momentum. Until then, CEASE and DESIST with your barrage of insults and attacks on other posters! Rand Paul has endorsed Mitt, because like most INFORMED voters he wants to be associated with a winner’s party.

          • If 48% of the voters read his track record he is a shoo in. Obama has 47% no matter what because of the food stamp program along with free cell phones and min.

            • Billy,

              Are you talking about 48% for Gary Johnson? Dream on man. I have never heard of him until I got on this site! He has ran NO ads on TV nor the local radio stations in my battle state of Ohio. LOL

            • But if you build a better mousetrap won’t the world beat a path to your door. You got a better man for the job, bring him on. Gary started his construction company with an army of one. When he sold it there were 1000 employees. Job creation big time. When he took over as governor the state was way in the hole, when he left there was a billion dollar surplus. Yeah, right man for the job because he has been there and done that.

            • LOL, Hey Willard does have a nose for a buck for sure. Look he was very successful at what he did, no doubt about it. Something like 110% return on investments but like with GM, at what cost to someone else.

            • Hey I wouldn’t vote for Willard if I had a gun to my head. Saw that while I was looking over Glenn Beck’s worth. LOL

            • Billy Malone — need your help also.

              Your input is appreciated — want to make a point-on and concise message that is easily understood by the masses (to start posting 2 days before the “election” on many sites). Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions/corrections.
              —————————————————————-

              Just say NO to Rmoney — VOTE for ANYONE but Mormon Mitt!

              FYI — The Mormons stripped the richest man in the world, Howard Hughes, not only of his life, but his entire fortune (that is how the Mormons got financial power to jump start their cult)!

              Now another Mormon wants to do the same to our entire Nation!
              And his 5 Mormon Sons are waiting in line to finish US off!

              *Vote FOR Gary Johnson* — Do NOT vote for Mormon Mitt (or Barack Hussein) the lesser of two evils!

            • Will do but I’m only on 2 other sites. I did hear that where there were as many as 18 on the ballot things could get shaken up a bit.

          • Daisy

            Who the hell said that Gary Johnson is MY GUY???

            You see, Daisy – this is exactly what I’m talking about. It’s classic! You have NO CLUE, because you don’t READ nor Comprehend what I’ve wrote. I NEVER said I support Gary Johnson. He doesn’t represent what I believe, that’s for sure. He’s Pro-Abortion. I’m not. He’s dumb as a box of rocks. I’m not. To me, Gary Johnson just “parrots” what Ron Paul stands for, but he can’t explain why he stands for what he believes.

            Daisy. I can tell you just watch and listen to TV and the Radio to get your information. That’s up to you. I prefer to get my news from alternative sources that does not come from the Lame-Stream-Media OPINION channels. Get a Grip!

            • I saw the you-tube links you posted. One was a twelve minute tirade against the two dominating parties. So, if not Gary Johnson, who do you want in the White House DT?

              Yes, I listen to both the radio and TV for entertainment, but I prefer the written word from books, blogs, magazines, and the internet to shape my opinion (which is never static, because people aren’t static). We are all hopefully growing and changing from the events around us and from personal develoment.

            • Daisy

              I’m glad you watched the youtube links. Although your comment shows that you completely missed the point. *sigh* It’s also great that you enrich your intellect with books, blogs and such, but I’d be cautious on your terminology when you classify people using the word static. To say people aren’t static would mean they are Progressive or Liberal. And that’s such an anathema to the Conservative “Neo-Con” Republican.

              Oh, BTW. I tried to look up where the Founders set up this 2 Party (Puppet) System through the popular vote and electoral vote. I had no luck. Perhaps you can post a link showing me where the Founders meant to set up this 2 Party (Puppet) System. From all the websites that I read, they show that the Founders WARNED AGAINST a 2 Party (Puppet) System. I wonder why that is… Maybe they were just too static.

              But I’m glad you watched the videos. Hopefully, you got something out of them. Maybe you’ll eventually come out of this Right/Left Paradigm that the 2 Party (Puppet) System set up to keep you fighting and clawing at the air. Who knows. Someday you may discover that the “Puppets” really are “Puppets”. And that the Puppets have a Puppet Master. I’ll give you a hint on who they are…(and they’re out to take the American Dream away from us all)

              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGk5ioEXlIM&feature=youtube_gdata_player

              Oh yeah. I almost forgot. You can also find the Puppet Masters if you Google “Mitt Romney’s TOP Donors for 2012” or “Barack Obama’s TOP Donors for 2008”. Open Secrets for all to see…

            • several Ironman Triathlons, and he climbed Mount Everest ………..”dumb as a box of rocks………….worth about 5 million dollars ………Okay so who’s your man who can beat Gary’s track record.

          • Daisy:

            I read both of DT’s posts and I see not the least bit of insult OR attack on other posters.

            The lady protesteth too much, methinks. The stress getting to you?

            • Perhaps it is Goethe. LOL

              I am going to read ” The Party Is Over: How Republicans Went Crazy, Democrats Became Useless, and the Middle Class Got Shafted” by Mike Lofgren &

              “The Betrayal of the American Dream by Donald L. Barlett ”
              this weekend.

              Like you, I don’t think that Mitt made his money honestly, but on the backs of workers’ stolen pensions and American companies liquidated assests.

              Obama scares me because of his wreckless and wild spending and his indifference (perhaps even inward hostility) of Israel.

              So, I keep my eyes and ears open and I’ll try to make the best choice come next Tuesday.

              If things don’t improve, then the Middle class must band together and DEMAND (through organized labor strikes and boycotting foreign goods & services) for our voices and legitimate concerns to be heard!!! The plurocrats in charge certainly don’t care if us modern day slaves suffer or that they drive us to anarchy! Obama has already bought a home in Hawaii, away from the masses, where he can live in peace and tranquility, if all hell breaks out.

            • Daisy: I am not happy with Obama for the same reason Clint Eastwood is not happy–for one, he promised to close Gitmo and get rid of the Patriot Act. Unfortunately, he tried and was rebuffed by Congress.

              But the Israel thing is a red herring. Under Bush, our aid was approximately a QUARTHER trillion dollars. Under Obama, it grew to a THIRD of a trillion dollars. That’s not hostility. That’s handing over the checkbook.

            • But he took out Osama, that was a bargain for just a trillion dollars. Okay I’m wrong again as Next year alone, the U.S. plans to spend an additional $118 billion on military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. Additional fiscal 2012 spending that can be attributed to bin Laden includes an extra $14 billion for homeland security, about $125 billion for the Pentagon excluding the two wars, expanded intelligence spending and increased aid to Pakistan, according to the Bloomberg analysis. This is a guy that just keeps on taking. Would have been cheaper to just ignore the bastard.

            • Goethe,

              Evangelical Christians (I am one) don’t consider Israel a red herring.

              “Israel at War: Inside the Nuclear Showdown with Iraq” by Joel C. Rosenberg is a glimpse of what we are afraid of.

              Bible prophecy teaches that Israel is the epi-center of Christ’s return. Jesus came to the earth the first time in peace, but the next time when he returns, he will bring a sword. God also will intervene and will not allow Israel to be destroyed. All the nations turn against Israel, (even the US) during the battle of Armageddon.

              All Christians want to go to heaven, but not anytime soon.

            • Daisy:

              Did you even READ my post?

              Obama DOUBLED miltary spending, from $450b/year to $900b/year.

              Obama INCREASED freebies to Israel from a quarter-trillion/year to a third-trillion/year.

              Do you not realize that 1/3 trillion id a lot more than 1/4 trillion??

              And, yes, I am QUITE aware of the Evangelical interest in Israel. For the end of the world to occur, there must be a war on Israel, and Israel must LOSE. So the effort to stir things up in the Middle East, and giving Israel a false sense of invulnerability is your attempt to bring about the Rapture.

              Israel goes along with as many trillions as we want to throw at them, because they don’t believe in your book.

            • Daisy

              2 things are weighing on my mind here concerning your support for Mitt.

              1) You claim to be an Evangelical Christian, but you want a Mormon to become President?

              2) You claim to be an Evangelical Christian, yet you have no condemnation for the Pro-War, Mass-Murdering Democrats and Republicans who violate EVERYTHING a Christian stands for by which Jesus taught us in the Gospels and in the 10 Commandments.

              It’s my contention that “The Gang of 535” in Washington DC are nothing but “psychopaths” who think nothing of killing innocent men, women and children in foreign lands. Why? So they can protect their OIL INTERESTS and enrich themselves and their “Special Interest BUDDIES” who bribe them with Campaign Contributions? Like it or not, we, the American People, have been LIED TO. But that’s the Neocon way. The Neocons have successfully “hijacked” Western Christianity with FEAR and the “Israel Loyalty” Card – even making Christians “insecure” about their Faith regarding the future of Christianity. What a sham!

              Even Israel was hijacked by the Pro-War Zionists a long time ago. They work their “dastardly deeds” hand-in-hand with the Neocons to kill innocent people who didn’t do a darn thing to them. Israel has to learn to “get along” with it’s neighbors. Because they can’t, they call on America to go to war for them. Israel has over 300 Nuclear Warheads and the ability to deliver them. Any sane thinking person knows that Israel is the “Big Dog” in the Middle East. America doesn’t need to “protect them” or rescue them. It’s all war propaganda! If Israel wants to attack Iran to protect their sovereignty, so be it. But no more American Blood based on a LIE! ENOUGH!

              Jesus said “Blessed are the Peacemakers” and I don’t know about you, but MY Jesus is the “Prince of Peace” – not the Prince of War. The “Gang of 535” in Washington has usurped the Constitution – and they do it with LIES and FEAR. NO MORE!

              Look at what we did in Libya in the name of “Humanitarianism”. It’s no wonder they HATE US! It just SICKENS me that Christians aren’t “outraged” at what the Democrat and Republican “Psychopaths” are perpetrating on the Middle East. Hitler and Hirohito would be proud. Now Romney wants to start ANOTHER war with Syria and Iran? Come on! This is INSANE!

      I am voting AGAINST Willard, a man with no character, no lasting ideals–a pathological liar who really cannot distinguish between “truth” and “what will benefit” him.

  11. DT,

    Yes you are correct in that **some** of the Founding Fathers (George Washington being one of them) were afraid and didn’t a two party system, based on their experiences in other countries.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/willard-sterne-randall/founding-fathers-political-parties_b_1843593.html

    Willard Sterne Randall’s article about how it came to be is one of the best synopsis that I have read.

    I too worry about the bigger picture…..the convergence of a new world order. It seems to me that the 6,000 elitists in the world (George Soros being one of them) want to control the remaining 6 billion people on planet earth.

    You-tube “Doomsday Preppers” to see how some folks are planning ahead in case things turn bad. I am not there yet, but I am going to invest in some “supplies” so that my family can handle calamities. Prepper families in New York, New Jersey are probably faring the best, and can meet their basic needs of food, shelter, & water.

  12. Gentlemen: DT ~ I am “presuming” you a guy, correct me if I am wrong; Goethe & Billy:

    I hear what you are saying and believe me, I don’t want any more killing, bloodshed, or wasted money spent.

    I too have seen the corruption in both parties and understand that 250/of the gang of 535 are millionares. I’ve worked at local campaigns (recorded checks from supporters in databases) and saw with my own eyes how politicians use other people’s money. By the time that they get to Washington, they are so use to being treated like royalty (using campaign contributions to pay for dinners; appearances; travel, etc.) that they loose grip on reality and don’t value money the same way us common folks do.

    Billy, you are right in that most Jewish people don’t believe that Jesus is the Messiah (they are expecting an earthly ruler like King David or one like his son King Solomon). Most Jewish people don’t believe in the hereafter (eternal life), thinking this life is all you get.

    Zechariah 14: 1-30 describes when Jesus comes back to Jerusalem. Verse 2 is especially awful. “I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into the exile, but the rest of the peole will not be taken from the city. Vs 3 Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations and he fights in the day of battle. ” Vs 12 describes a “plague” not yet seen: “This is the plague with which the Lord will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets and their tongues will rot in their mouths. On that day, men will be stricken by the Lord with great panic.”

    Does that sound like a peaceful Jesus to you DT? The word “Lord” is synonymous with the word “Jesus”.

    How the United States fits into all of this, I don’t know, but I do know what Jesus says in Matthew 24″ in versus 4-32. In Vs 32 he talks about the fig tree. (The fig tree is a metaphor for Israel). “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree” As soon as it twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door.”

    The state of Israel is prospering and in bloom. Nations are rising up against her and are threatening her existence.

    Some Bible scholars think that either America will implode and become a third world nation (once the rapture occurs) while others think that our country’s un-repented wickedness will do us in.

    • Daisy

      Gee…I’m lost for words. All I’ve got to say is that’s pretty far out there.

      You make it sound like we Christians should get our guns, bombs, rocks, knives, spears, mustard gas and any other weapons of mass destruction and go KILL and MAIM because that’s what Jesus would do.

      Or perhaps you think that when Jesus comes He will pat us on the back and say “Good Job in killing all those Muslims until I got here. Enter thou into the Joy of the Lord.”

      Daisy. When Jesus came the first time, he put an end to that line of thinking. It’s “Obsolete”. Only the TRUTH can set you free. Putting your fingers in your ears or placing your hands over your eyes doesn’t negate what is really happening ie The Truth. And to use Passages of the Holy Writ to “justify” murdering people is what Radicals from other Religions do – not Christians!

      It’s Obsolete!

    • Daisy:

      Couple o’ points. There is a difference between “Jew” as a race and “Jew” as one who believes in the Hebrew religion. So it may be true that some ethnic Jews believe in Jesus, if a person believes in Jesus, he is not a Hebrew/Jew. Just like if you don’t believe in the Trinity, you’re not a Christian–you may be a Mormon, though.

      Second, you’re quoting the Old Testament. There is all kindsa weird sh*t in there, and the “Loving Jesus” didn’t want anything to do with the jealous, petty, hateful God, as portrayed in the Old Testament.

      • There is all kinds of weird sh*t in there,

        Now that statement is going to go over big time with the Bible beaters.

  13. always find it interesting that many Christians believe that Jesus is sweet baby Jesus in the manager and the sacrificial lamb who hung on the cross for the sins of the world, but are ignorant about Jesus as reigning King and one day ruler of this earth.

    Jesus himself said these very words (red letters) in Matthew 10:32 “Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven. Vs 34 reads “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth, I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. Vs 35: For I have come to turn a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daugher-in-law against her mother-in-law – a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.”

    Paul writes in Romans 2:3-11: “But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself fot the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgement will be revealed. God will give to each person according to what he has done. To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil, first for the Jew, then for the Gentile, but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good; first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. For God does not show favoritisim.

    Go to the end of the New Testament in Revelation Chapter 19 verses 11-16: “I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dripped in blood and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron scepter. He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God almighty. On his robe and on his thigh has this name written: King of Kings and Lord of Lords.”

    Read further in Chapter 20 (The thousand years, Satan’s doom, the dead are judged) and Chapter 21, The New Jerusalem. Currently, the “Dome of the Rock”, a muslim mosque) sits on the temple mount, in old Jerusalem. It will oneday be destroyed by God, so that his temple can be re-built.

    No, DT Christians do not need to fight the battle with munitions for the battle is already won. Satan knows he is defeated (Christ said “it is finished” on the cross), but Satan has influenced (will continue to influence) evil people to do his bidding, until he is bound up for 1000 years.

    Goethe, there is a saying in Christian circles: The New is in the Old concealed, the Old is in the New revealed. It is in regards to how the old and new testaments support each other.

    • Daisy:

      Sounds like Julia Sweeney’s Letting Go of God:

      It was really hard to stay on Jesus’ side when he started saying really aggressive, just hateful things. Like in Luke, Chapter 19, Jesus says that he is like a King who says, “Anyone who does not recognize me, bring them here and slaughter them before me.” Or in John, Chapter 15, where Jesus says, “Anyone who does not believe in me is like a withered branch that will be cast into the fire and burned!” In Matthew he says, “I come not to bring peace, but a sword.” In Luke he says, “And if you don’t have a sword, sell your clothes and buy one.”

      Then Jesus just starts acting downright crazy. Like in Matthew, Chapter 21, when this fig tree doesn’t have a fig for Jesus to eat, he condemns the fig tree to death. That’s right, Jesus condemns a fig tree to death. Not a parable, by the way. Just Jesus pissed off that the fig tree didn’t have a fig for him to eat when he wanted one! Not exactly the Prince of Peace who taught us to turn the other cheek….

      –And people who have never read the Q’ran (Koran) think it’s crazy.

        • Surfisher:

          You won’t have an impact on many people. My impression is that we are born into a political party, just as we are born into a religion and sports team fandom. As much as we want to say we are “independent,” we are not.

          In this case, a LOT of people are holding their nose and are planning to vote Willard. Some people think he’s a sleezeball and are still adamant in defending him. It’s like the old saying originally applied to a South American dictator: “He’s a b*stard, but he’s OUR b*stard.”

          Aside from that, we hear what we want to hear. And that makes Willard successful. Since he has no character, and no unchanging values or ideals, he can be on all sides of all issues. And people who are conditioned to support THEIR b*stard hear ONE thing the like, and cling to it. “He said he is against abortion in all cases, so I’m for him,” “he said he would allow abortion in cases of rape, incest, health of the woman, and anything the polls say,” “he said it’s the law of the land, and he will uphold laws on the books,” “he said abortion is a RIGHT, and he will DEFEND a woman’s right to choose.” As Teddy Kennedy said, Willard “is not pro-choice, he is MULTIPLE-choice.” Like the weather, if you don’t like a stand he takes. . .wait a minute. And if you’re conditioned to support your party’s guy, you wait for your position to come around in the game of Russian Roulette that is Willard’s policy routine.

          OK, so all that being said, and aside from his lack of character, what else could you say?

          I am totally confounded that Evangelicals support Willard. He does not believe that Jesus is God. He does not believe in the Trinity. He believes in magic underwear.

          http://exmormon.org/d6/drupal/Weird-things-about-Mormons-and-Mormonsim-as-Experienced-by-Mormons

          That link is an ex-mormon saying what it’s really like, including the added “book of the bible,” AND a belief that the “rest” of the bible is corrupt. If Evangelicals like a guy who says their bible is corrupt, where do you go?

          They believe that God started out AS a man–and somehow got a heck of a promotion. Also, YOU will become a God, have your own planet, and have lots o’ wives.

          OK, that’s just for Evangelicals. Back to the flip-flops, how can you trust him if he has been on both sides of abortion, gun control, military spending, gay rights, civil rights (influenced by his religion).

          Somehow that hasn’t had an impact on people. They WANT to believe that the Romney Roulette wheel will stop on their side of the issue. But lately, he has tried to run away from ALL of the conservative issues. He has stressed that he has “reached across the aisle” to SIGN any and all laws that were passed by the 87% Democratic legislature in Massachusetts. He agreed with the Democratic legislature in the country’s most liberal state. So if he were to become president, he would push the Republican House to give in to Nancy Pelosi in order to get things passed.

          He doesn’t believe in anything, so we’ll have to look at his “record.” He hasn’t needed a job the last five years. Before that, he pandered to the liberals in Massachusetts. Before that, his mormon buddies got him the Olympics job–in which he got the LARGEST government loan the Olympics ever saw. Deficit spending. Before that, and at the same time, it turns out, he was at Bain. Deficit spending. He borrowed up to 95% of the money he played with. He often pocketed that money, but put the “debt” on the company he bought. Deficit spending. Borrow and pocket it. He also arranged a way for him and his buddies to profit whether companies did ok or whether they failed. A full 22% went bankrupt–and he still profited. “Too bad for you.”

          As a chicken hawk, he spent the entire spring listing places he wants to send troops. He wants to meddle in countries around the world. YET, in his youth, he got a college deferment so HE wouldn’t have to fight. When that failed, he claimed to be a minister–spreading the word that YOUR bible is corrupt and that you should follow the additional “book” of the “lost tribe” that somehow walked across the Atlantic to be here.

          This is a guy you can’t “have a beer with.” You can’t even “have coffee with,” because he is holier than thou.

          He has no respect for people. That was the real message in the 47% tape. Willard sees himself as a VICTIM who has to put up with inferior people. And that’s because he has been ENTITLED his whole life. Because he can BUY a political office he walked from a teeny-tiny (but obscenely profitable) company to run for U.S. Senate (arguably, the second most important office in the land). That didn’t work, so he PURCHASED the governorship, and since he has no ideals, he just spent his time signing Democratic bills.

          That brings us to this campaign. He did and said anything he had to do or say to undercut his opponents. He outspent them up to SEVENTEEN (17)-to-one. Then he used back office/smoke-filled-room tactics to undercut grassroots efforts, and simply changed the rules as he went along. Even at the convention, they passed a rule for him, saying grassroots don’t matter–and when that was shouted down, they said it passed.

          And now, after all the conservative talk, he’s now talking about expanding social programs and he’s talking about “peace” all over the world.

          ROMNEY ROULETTE–if you want to play, yer gonna pay.

          • Goethe,

            Yes, evangelicals do have some isssues with the Mormon Church ~ “Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints” because they have “added” to the Bible. At the end of Revelation, John writes in Chapter 22, verse 18: “I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.” This warning won’t effect people now, but in eternity it will…

            What evangelicals do like about Mormons is that they promote good family values and they seem to be peace-loving people. We also know that you can’t get EVERYTHING you want in any one candidate. No one is perfect, only God is. If Mitt gets elected, he will be like all the other Presidents before him —placed under the microscope to be examined, prodded; probed; and vilified.

            If Obama gets elected, then life goes on and we also know that God has allowed him to remain. Isaiah 40, vs 21-24 tells us this very thing: “Do you not know? Have you not heard? has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood since the earth was founded” He (God) sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in. He brings princes to naught and reduces the rulers of the world to nothing. No sooner are they planted, no sooner are they sown, no sooner do they take root in the ground, than he blows on them and they wither, and a whirlwind sweeps them away like chaff.”

      • Yes, I’ve read about Julie Sweeney’s “Letting go of God” where she discusses her Catholic upbringing, early religious ideology, and the life events and internal search that led her to believe that the universe can function on its own without a deity to preside over it, finally becoming an atheist.

        Sadly, so many Americans are like her. They approach the Bible (religion) like they do their digital cameras. They keep what they like and delete the rest. They convince themselves that they are “good” people. They compare themselves with other sinners (they usually pick the worst ones) and they puff out their chests, pat themselves on the back and think themselves okay. What they fail to realize is that we shouldn’t be comparing ourselves to other sinners, but to God’s Holy standards.

        Ephesians 5 v 1-7: “Be imitators of God, therefore as dearly loved childen and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. But among you, there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person-such a man is an idolater-has any inheritance in the Kingdom of Christ and of God.”

        In Revelation 21:6-8 we are told “He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beggiining and the End. To him who is thirsty, I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. He(she) who OVERCOMES will inherit all of this, and I will be his God and he will be my son (daughter). But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts the idolaters and ALL liars- their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second deaath.

        Goethe, We have all been on that above list sometime in our life (me included!). Somethimes, before I know it, I find myself back on it (cowardly, unbelieving, lying), but I see the error of my ways and I repent asking God to forgive me.

        Unfortunately, we live in a time where evil is considered good and good is considered evil or “intolerant”.

        There are about 230 million adults in the USA (ages 20 and up). On average, each one spends 40 hours looking at pornography. That means US adults spend an estimated 9.2 billion man-hours on pornography per year. Americans also spend over $13.3 billion on pornography in the United States every year, and that number is even a few years old.

        Timothy speaks about our behaviors in the “Last Days” in 2 Timothy 3, vs 1-5: “But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to the parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutual, not lovers of good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God- having a form of godliness (they go to church, proclaiming to be good people), but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.”

        I don’t know about you Goethe, but I see people all around me that are described in 2 Timothy, even in my own family…..

The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.” —Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution (Philadelphia 1787).

    “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.”—Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution (Philadelphia 1787).

    “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing” EDMUND BURKE

    “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” ABRAHAM LINCOLN

    “We should insist that if the immigrant who comes here does in good faith become an American and assimilates himself to us he shall be treated on an exact equality with every one else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed or birth-place or origin.
    But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American and nothing but an American. If he tries to keep segregated with men of his own origin and separated from the rest of America, then he isn’t doing his part as an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. . . We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language, for we intend to see that the crucible turns our people out as Americans, of American nationality, and not as dwellers in a polyglot boarding-house; and we have room for but one soul loyalty, and that is loyalty to the American people.” — Written in a letter by then former President Theodore Roosevelt on January 3, 1919 to the president of the American Defense Society.
