Much to the chagrin of the MSM, the Tea Party is alive and well and the Conservative movement is not going away. If the Republican Party wants to stay relevant, it needs to listen to these folks, of which I am one, as the direction followed by the Senate, despite the press talk, is not favored by most. I think even Sen Rubio wishes he didn't make a deal with the devil, but I guess he'll follow through on Shamnesty and pay the price later.
We've got work to do, Folks, lots of work. Keep speaking up, keep pounding on your elected officials, and keep your faith in God to give you strength. And on that note, I offer the following prayer as my personal thank you to God for keeping so many wonderful Americans faithful despite the fears created by tyranny:
Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for giving us the strength to go forward in support of liberty, individual worth, and our love for Thee and Thy Son. Keep us strong against evil, always working for the right, and ever keeping Thee in our hearts. With Thee we can escape our fear and maintain hope for the future and the Life to come.
And we also humbly ask that Thou wouldst infect the souls of those who always look for the easy answers, and the politicians who are captured by self interest, greed and power. Help them also to see the light of Thee and know that decisions in life are never easy and are not "deals'. They must be grounded in truth. We know you can't compromise away the truth.
Bless us and keep us true to Thee no matter what the challenge or pain we face, for your grace and mercy will see us through. We ask in Thy name and the name of Thy Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.
MAJOR UPDATE: Just when we thought we were making progress and the Senate Republicans looked like they might be realizing the truth about Shamnesty, Sens. Corker of TN and Hoeven of ND stepped in and served up a "deal" to the Gang of 8 which really is just eyewash, doesn't solve any of the problems and, of course, the Gang (appropriate name) jumped on it with glee. So hear we go, we have to redouble our efforts in the fight.
Don't give up until the "fat lady sings", for if this awful immigration bill becomes law we won't recognize our country in a short time. It will effectively mean the end of sovereignty and the end of America. Stay strong and pray for His guiding hand.
