Trick or…Trick?

The whole point of Trick or Treat is in the uncertainty of knowing which one it will be. It seems awfully difficult to find the treat these days, which has made the trick a foregone conclusion!

  • The jobs-killing, tax and regulatory cost burden reality of Obamacare!
  • Obama violates War Powers Act in Libya!
  • Libya declares Sharia the law of the land!
  • Al Qaeda Flag flies over Libya!
  • Unesco grants full membership to Palestinians!
  • Solyndra Scandal!
  • Fast & Furious Scandal!
  • Obama orders Immigration Agents to violate court-ordered Immigration Law!
  • Record number of Americans on food stamps!

Now we come to an interesting time in American History with a man by the name of Herman Cain positioned as frontrunner in the race for Obama’s job. On the one hand, we have a man who raised himself up from the dregs of poverty by honoring America in affirming her promise of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness as granted and secured for us by the Founders. In Herman Cain we have a man of integrity, deep Christian faith and values; who has educated himself, built businesses and employed thousands, loves his country and respects the Constitution…and suddenly we are told, “He’s a bad apple!”, “He’s not really black!”or, “He’s a black man who knows his place!”…oh really?

On the other hand, we have the man solely responsible for the bullet points above. A man who rode to power on a dark horse, ushered in by the enemies of Liberty and Freedom. A man who’s every fiber and very being is a dishonor, not only to the very heart of America…but to every single American who has spilled blood to secure and preserve her legacy for generations to come. A man we know NOTHING about! A man whose faith and citizenship are questionable, whose resentment of country and constitution are evident in his own words…a man who has promised much and delivered little. A man who has built nothing and wants four more years to destroy everything!

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.
— Abraham Lincoln

    Truer words have never been spoken or written. By both you and the esteemed Abraham Lincoln. Thanks for the reminder.
