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

Speak since it’s true, explain because you love

Have conservatives gone underground in the liberal San Francisco Bay Area? This February 4 report from KPIX Channel 5 made me think our state should be renamed the Republik of Kalifornia:

Some East Bay conservatives say they live a secret life. They can never tell anyone what they really feel like in fear of their safety. Robert Ward is coming out conservative, but in a place he says is risky for those who share his beliefs. “If you witness what happened in Berkeley, actually they are so violent on top of it. I mean being a conservative in the Bay Area is like being a heretic,” says Ward. “You lead a double life. You can never tell your friends and co-workers.”

On the one hand, these Donald Trump supporters have reason to be afraid. We’ve all seen the violence by anarchistic leftists who want to eliminate U.S. borders. And remember how moral conservatives who donated to California’s Proposition 8 to protect marriage licenses for a man and a woman had their home addresses posted on the web? And how one of them, Mozilla co-founder Brendan Eich, was pressured to resign by the so-called “tolerant” but completely hypocritical homosexual activists?

Yet on the other hand, as our culture gets darker, there’s a greater need for people with Jesus Christ’s kingdom values to publicly shine their lights. With both soft and tough love, depending what’s needed. Truth is hard, and love is redemptive. And people who are accountable to God to “love your neighbor as yourself” (our Savior’s command) have no excuse to shut their mouths.

And from a practical standpoint, it’s a fact in modern-day America that public sympathy is aroused by public victims. Homosexual-transsexual activists, who love playing the victim, know this. Yet risking being victimized is the mark of a Christian, who can expect that “all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12).

Indeed, the sacrificial love and loyalty to Jesus displayed by the blood shed by the Early Church overcame the Roman Empire by showing the public there was something eternally higher than ourselves to live and die for.

In any case, some Trump conservatives going underground in the Bay Area can be scary and feel threatening. But let it be a wake-up call for you to re-energize your commitment to speak out, and to articulate facts that can change minds, and to be the light for Truth that you were called to be. For in an increasingly godless culture, there are more depressed people who wonder if there’s a purpose to life.

Be a beacon of Life, demonstrating what’s true, what’s beneficial, and what’s worth fighting for!

For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself,
lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.
You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin.
Hebrews 12:3-4

Anti-child abortionists want more blood money

Tuesday, January 17, 2017, 9:15 pm | Randy Thomasson


January 17, 2017 at California’s State Capitol, hundreds of abortion advocates cheered pro-abortion politicians and actors, demanding that Americans’ federal tax dollars that fund Planned Parenthood’s abortion clinics continue under President-Elect Donald Trump.

But concerned Californians need to know the truth:

1. ABORTION FUNDING: California’s Democrat politicians, in control of state government for decades, don’t want you to know that California state taxpayers are forced to provide unlimited and unrestricted taxpayer funding of abortion to Planned Parenthood and other abortionists. The result in our high-population state? One-fifth of all the abortions in the USA are performed in California.

Add to this human carnage the Democrats’ numerous laws increasing so-called “access” to abortion (sweeping in more girls and women, killing more pre-born babies, getting more money in their coffers). California taxpayers, no matter their moral position, are forced to be fiscal accomplices of this holocaust. The pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute estimates, “In 2014, some 157,350 abortions were provided in California.” That’s equivalent to 50 times the Twin Towers deaths on September 11, 2001 or 65 times the Pearl Harbor deaths on December 7, 1941.

2. WHAT ABOUT THE BABY? These pro-aborts talk about women’s “rights” (to kill) — but what about the surpassing right to life (and you don’t have any rights if you’re aborted) for the innocent baby? And what about the baby’s “choice”? These pro-aborts are silent about what they’re really doing, which is murdering millions of pre-born children in the womb.

TAKE ACTION:

1. Urge your U.S. Representative to DEFUND Planned Parenthood (call 202-225-3121)

2. See and share these inspiring pro-life videos

Q.: What is the governing force behind the abortion industry?
A.: Money. Is a very lucrative business. It is the largest unregulated industry and our nation. Most of the clinics are running chains because it’s so profitable.
