ObamaCare ruling: Don’t be depressed, direct your anger instead

Thursday, June 28, 2012, 1:28 pm | Randy Thomasson

If your emotions are riled up by unjust judges who have upheld ObamaCare, let the Righteous Judge help you direct your anger and frustration toward a good cause. For the Word of God teaches “be angry, but do not sin” (Ephesians 4:26).

Even though five judges on the U.S. Supreme Court have wrongly opined that ObamaCare is constitutionally permissible, a future Congress and President could repeal all of this socialist-medicine monstrosity.

ObamaCare includes:

At least 20 new taxes on families and small businesses

The ruination of America’s health care system

The biggest pro-abortion federal program ever

Insurance blockades to nutritional medicine

Because this is an election year, I urge you to replace your unrealistic depression for healthy anger. Dr. Neil Anderson is a Christian mental health pioneer and an expert on spiritual warfare. In his excellent book, Victory Over The Darkness, Anderson explains the difference between depression and anger:

Depression Signals an Impossible Goal
When you base your future success on something that can never happen, you have an impossible, hopeless goal. Your depression is a signal that your goal, no matter how spiritual or noble, may never be reached.

Anger Signals a Blocked Goal
When your activity in a relationship or a project results in feelings of anger, it’s usually because someone or something has blocked your goal in that endeavor. Any goal which can be blocked by forces you can’t control (other than God) is not a healthy goal, because your success in that arena is out of your hands.

See it? If you’re frustrated about ObamaCare’s socialized medicine being upheld, you’re justifiably angry that elected representatives and Supreme Court judges are blocking your goal of (and your healthy desires for) personal liberty, a reliable healthcare system, and good government. And your anger is good if you direct it toward good.

Christian psychologist Dr. Neil Clark Warren, founder of the eHarmony.com matchmaking service, wrote a groundbreaking book called Make Anger Your Ally.  From the book’s description:

Do you ever struggle with anger? You can suppress it, deny it, let it control you, or you can Make Anger Your Ally… master anger and transform its energy into a dynamic force for positive living.

Got it? Instead of being depressed about ObamaCare, be righteously angry and direct your anger in healthy ways this November. Vote how you want, but know that a future Congress and President could repeal ObamaCare if you vote like you demand it. Permission to be angry!

Sweet justice in San Diego?

Tired of liberal judicial activists imposing their anti-Christian views on everyone else? And what about those mushy judges who get swayed by everything other than the written Constitution that they’ve sworn to uphold?

I’m enthusiastically watching the election results in San Diego County. Because one of America’s leading Christian constitutional attorneys may be elected a local judge – and we’ll finally get constitutional rulings that are right before God.

Gary Kreep is executive director of the United States Justice Foundation. Over the years, he has defended many moral causes in court,  including representing me, on a pro bono basis. See his impressive bio.

Tonight, with only 7,000 absentee and provisional votes remaining to be counted, Gary is ahead by 824 votes over the establishment-supported candidate, Garland Peed. It seems a small lead but it’s larger than yesterday and the liberals are very nervous about losing one of their judge seats to a strict constructionist who will uphold the written Constitution. Gary received very few donations but has always fought for God and country and in this race he sacrificially donated his own funds.

Keep track of the San Diego County election results, posted weekdays at 5 p.m.

How to legally multiply your votes

Saturday, June 2, 2012, 8:52 pm |

You have an incredible opportunity to make a difference before Tuesday’s election. If you love God and love people, I hope you’ll seize it.

California’s June 5 primary election is expected to have a very low turnout – perhaps only a third of registered voters will actually vote by the time the polls close.

This is good news for moral conservatives. Because you care deeply for moral values in government, and because you know others with moral standards, you can turn out more votes for righteousness and make a mathematical difference that may be the winning difference.

So please take quick action. Go to the candidates’ websites and study their positions on issues. Use SaveCalifornia.com’s Election Center to do more research. Then, write up your voting recommendations with brief explanations.

Next, get your value-based recommendations to other moral conservatives. Send an email or Facebook or Twitter message to all your friends. If you’re part of a church and see this in time, make lots of copies of your recommendations. Then, on Sunday morning, either pass them out by hand or place on car windows.

A very effective way to get people out to vote is to pull out your church directory, and call every household. Encourage them to vote, to offer them your recommendations, answer their questions, and even offer a ride to their polling place, if needed. This get-out-the-vote activity is truly good work for God’s values and for people’s benefit.

Moral conservatives don’t need to be like liberal activists, who pretend to be dead people and multiply votes illegally. No, you can multiply righteous votes by encouraging professing moral conservatives or professing Christians to vote for their values because you’re helping them and telling them every vote is needed.

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice;
But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.

Proverbs 29:2 NKJV

“The Church must take right ground to politics… The time has come for Christians to vote for honest men, and take consistent ground in politics or the Lord will curse them…God cannot sustain this free and blessed country, which we love and pray for, unless the church will take right ground. Politics are a part of religion in such a country as this, and Christians must do this duty to their country as part of this duty to God…God will bless or curse this nation according to the course Christians take in politics.”
Rev. Charles Finney (1792-1875), a famous American minister and revivalist of the Second Great Awakening
