Get this through your head: Freedom is not free

Saturday, July 1, 2017, 5:56 pm | Randy Thomasson

Do you remember that when our U.S. founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776, they pledged “our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor”?

Do you realize that John Adams said that the price of liberty was “a great expense of blood,” and that 25,000 Americans died to purchase the United States of America for you?

What are you willing to do (which will not require the shedding of blood) to recover the Constitution that they gave you, and to publicly represent the moral standards that Creator God bestowed upon you?

“Our Lives, Our Fortunes, Our Sacred Honor”
WATCH Paul Harvey | READ Rush Limbaugh, Jr.

“The object is great which we have in view, and we must expect a great expense of blood to obtain it. But we should always remember that a free constitution of civil government cannot be purchased at too dear a rate, as there is nothing on this side of Jerusalem of equal importance to mankind.” John Adams, 2nd U.S. President, on July 1, 1776, as quoted by David McCullough

July 3, 1776 letters from John Adams to his wife, Abigail Adams: “The furnace of affliction produces refinement, in states as well as individuals. And the new governments we are assuming, in every part, will require a purification from our vices and an augmentation of our virtues or they will be no blessings. The people will have unbounded power. And the people are extremely addicted to corruption and venality, as well as the great.” Source

“It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more. You will think me transported with Enthusiasm but I am not. I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means. And that Posterity will tryumph in that Days Transaction, even altho We should rue it, which I trust in God We shall not.” Source

A California governor who loves God and people?

Rosey Grier knows how to get good things done, and has experience resisting evil. What does it matter that he’s 84, which may be the new 74?

Former NFL linebacker with the Los Angeles Rams, author, actor, public speaker and active Christian minister Rosey Grier says he’s going to run for California governor to succeed the termed-out Jerry Brown.

Grier is a Republican who, like Ronald Reagan, left the Democrat Party when it left him on moral issues.

As the L.A. Times reports:

Earlier this year, Grier endorsed Trump for president, saying he was impressed by Trump’s business experience and support for Israel.

“I felt that we needed a businessman in the White House,” Grier said.”Our country is turning away from Israel. And you don’t turn away from Israel. Those are God’s chosen people.”

The former football star doesn’t seem to be worried an electorate in a state that overwhelmingly chose Hillary Clinton might be turned off by his support for Trump.

“If I’m not successful, it won’t be because I haven’t tried,” Grier said.

Impressive. And I’m not discounting Grier because he’s 84. When Jerry Brown leaves office in January 2019, he’ll be 80 going on 81. California’s U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein is 83. Donald Trump will assume the presidency at age 70.

Concerned about feebleness? Remember former California Secretary of State Debra Bowen. Leaving statewide office at age 58, Bowen admitted she was an alcoholic while in the State Assembly, a drug addict in the State Senate, and that she was clinically depressed and largely absent from her duties in her second term as Secretary of State.

So if Bowen, a middle-aged liberal Democrat, could vote and otherwise act against God and family values in her feeble condition, I would be more than fine with an sharp-minded 84-year-old Christian conservative whose body isn’t what it used to be. All Grier needs to do is veto a boatload of bad bills. He could even veto bills from bed, as his namesake, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who was wheelchair-bound and often bed-bound, did.

Do the math for the June 2018 California primary election. If it were just one reliable conservative facing off with dyed-in-the-wool, anti-family liberals such as Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, and state Treasurer John Chiang, the conservative, with only 30-35% could be one of the top two vote-getters who goes on to the general election.

The next governor’s race is a historic opportunity to put forth a clear difference between one who relies on government and one who relies on people to do what’s right.

Multiple conservative candidates kill each other’s chances, as California’s 2016 U.S. Senate primary election proved. Several Republicans in that race resulted in two liberal Democrats going into the general election. Why not let liberals split their votes this time?

And what kind of Republican you would accept? Do you want Rosey Grier’s moral values or would you take a homosexual-bisexual-transsexual agenda “Republican” like San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer or even Peter Thiel, an openly homosexual “Republican”? Who do you trust to veto bills punishing Californians who oppose sexual perversity?

Ultimately, your religious freedom is protected only by government. I, for one, would feel much safer with a governor who I could depend on to veto any and all tyrannical bills that punish our God-given rights.

Contact Rosey Grier or Kevin Faulconer to encourage/discourage them to run

This is a faithful saying, and these things I want you to affirm constantly, that those who have believed in God should be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men.
Titus 3:8

Thank you for your active friendship

I want to thank you if you’ve donated to SaveCalifornia.com in late November or December. If this is you, you have a good heart and good virtues – and you showed it this last month with your generous gift to SaveCalifornia.com. Truly, you are empowering our statewide California ministry to children and families. I’m very grateful for you!

Now that you and I have arrived in 2017, I sincerely wish you a Courageous and Faith-filled New Year. Because we all need courage and faith to overcome fear. Paralyzing and depressing fear is overcome by real faith in Jesus Christ, real hope for the future, real love for others, and real courage to stand for what’s true!

Together, we’re fighting the good fight of faith! May God bless you as you obey Him this New Year. Thank you for your active friendship with SaveCalifornia.com!

Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of done accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
Philippians 2:1-4
