Jim: I see two political parties, each with ideas, some Christian (even the Democrats have SOME), some not. As a result, I will go more with the member of whichever house is being voted for (I'm in a state with senate electrions this time), not the party.

I think both parties have some decent ideas, but there is also too much garbage being said on the airwaves

sorry i did not make myself clear. that actually was a quote from the website that i posted. i actually do not know what they were referring to when they said alternative. as i see it, there are several alternatives: cheating, revolting, appealing to the powers that be. ironically, the American Revolution was based on unfair taxation.

personally, there are many things we are forced to do. i will do them (what is in good conscience) until the Lord returns. If the govt, wants to steal my money, then so be it. Romans 13 is tossed around, isn't it? what happens when it becomes illegal to say the name of Jesus and not report anybody who does? are we bound to obey laws that never were?
---aka on 11/6/10


aka--
you say:
another alternative exists, and that it is entirely possible to challenge the very foundation of this taxing power upon the grounds that the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was never adopted.

This isn't much of an alternative in my view. I've heard a lot of people make this claim...but never known anybody who could make the argument stick! All you do is get yourself labeled as a possible tax cheat.

As a Christian I participate in my pagan government because the institution of government is biblical. The balance is civic participation without involvement in the Satanic arts of politics.

Despite the noise on MSNBC and Fox most of the fiscal misery is at the local level and so I voted and put most of my focus on fiscal stewardship at the county commission, city council and school board level.

Its your local property and sales taxes , garbage, utility and even cable rates that are killing our wallets - slowly.

On the national level President Obama pushed through the largest middle class tax cut in history and it hasn't made a dent.

If you do vote, all of your complaints, moans, and groans about the government mean little.

maybe... but at least you are trying.

//They sure get away with not paying taxes more than the IRS would tolerate from you and me.//

Today, the federal government pretends that it has all encompassing power to tax the income of everyone, and that the only way to change this system is to vote for congressmen who promise to modify or, even more unlikely, to repeal these laws. The American public needs to be apprised that another alternative exists, and that it is entirely possible to challenge the very foundation of this taxing power upon the grounds that the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was never adopted. This challenge can be effectively made by exercising your rights under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. thelawthatneverwas dot com

Sag -- I can't find the figures now, but Congressmen have a very high rate of bankruptcy and debt in arrears, compared to the rest of the populace. Maybe that's from all the campaigning. They sure get away with not paying taxes more than the IRS would tolerate from you and me.

Congressmen are notoriously poor managers of their own money. Sticking with a budget, as many of us are required to do, is unknown to many of them.
---Donna66 on 11/1/10

Today, I read in a newspaper that many of our Congressional Representatives -- Men & Women -- are MILLIONAIRES. With that kind of money, they can afford to be sloppy money managers.

Unfortunately, this lack of "money management skills", or just not caring about it, is at least partly WHY there are problems with the following:

Social Security
Medicare
Federal Budget Deficits
Federal Debt Level
etc. etc.
---Sag on 11/2/10


Yep, get out and vote... I agree. I have no problem telling this blog that I will vote as conservative as possible. I have voted for some Democrats for Senate and Gov. here in IL. I have never voted for a Dem. for Presidient. I usually vote Rep. This time I am voting for as many Tea Party Candidates as possible here in IL. I am not embarassed to say this..

Harold-- Politicians in office are paid better than most average people, and their benefits are superior to others bar-none..They are not business people who have to weigh the consequences of their spending. They are paid mainly for deciding what impacts OTHERS.
National office holders have homes in Washington (which is NOT cheap) as well as in their home states. (Ever wonder how much it costs princess Pelosi to fly from coast to coast at government expense?). But they are paid comensurate to keeping up 2 homes and have many perks beside.

---Donna66 on 11/1/10


I think its pretty obvious where my vote it going.

One of the things I love about this country is our ability to express our feelings in the voting booth every couple of years..

Regardless of who you vote for you need to get out and vote. If you don't vote all of your complaints, moans and groans about the government mean little.
---NurseRobert on 11/1/10


The bible says that God establishes and take down earthly powers, this includes governments. I do not use this an excuse not to vote. He put me in a country that allows use to have a say and therefore expects us to fulfill that duty. For whom I vote is my business, but where I can I look at what they have done and compare it to what God would want. If You don't vote, don't complain.
I do have one question, where do these politicians live that the cost of living hasn't gone up for two years. Everything I buy cost more than it did two years ago.
With SSDI the medicare starts one year after the payments begin.
---Harold on 11/1/10


Donna66, Jan:

Because of a work injury, I will soon begin collecting SSDI. I won't be eligible for Medicare for a couple more years.

I don't have any alternatives after a messy divorce left me without much more that what it takes to survive daily. I'm trusting GOD for my daily provisions.

The Social Security, Medicare, etc. reformists that you mention can start by NOT raiding the Trust Fund. Stop funding expensive, unnecessary wars like Iraq.

I agree that some sort of reform needs to be done. But for the most part, Social Security and Medicare have adequate funds. It's just that Congress has already spent the tax money collected years ago.

Poor money management by our elected representatives.
---Augie on 10/31/10


jan -- I am also a senior on SS and Medicare.
I don't think Sharon Angle or any conservative thinks they can "do away" with SS or medicare...especially for those already dependent on them. Nobody is considering that! (And what candidate running for office would be foolish enough to suggest it?!)

But both SS, and especially Medicare, are using borrowed money to operate. When the baby-boomers hit 65 (very soon) it will be a real mess. A lot of people would like to reform the system, beginning now with the workers furthest from retirement and making incremental changes. Even increasing retirement age a year ot two in the near future would save a great deal. The same for medicare.
---Donna66 on 10/30/10


tho i believe the very libreral people in washington need to go - i do not approve of some of the so-called conservatives in the tea party movement like woman in nevada running against harry reid - while i would like to see harry reid gone she wants to get rid of social security, medicare and other govt programs - who will take care of us seniors if she has her way - my family certainly cant take of me

Gordon, I totally agree with all of your statement. I'm so glad you feel as I do. Thank you brother for your answer. I voted already very carefully. Peace
---Mark_V. on 10/29/10


I pray. Even Christians I trust seem able to judge superficially by what people show and tell, instead of making sure with God who knows.

Joshua 9:1-14 shows us how the Jewish leaders judged by obvious evidence, "but they did not ask counsel of the LORD." And we read what happened because they did not make sure with God (1 Thessalonians 5:21).

A number of us are proven able to fool our own selves about whom we marry and who we vote for. "And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment." (Philippians 1:9) So - - - in God's love and leading we can judge reliably, though.

I will vote for nonyah!

I will vote the way I have always voted since eligible...straight Democratic.

If I do vote, I'm a scratch voter. If I go into the voting booth & there are no republicrat & or no democrublican tabs to

I will vote veeerrry carefully. I will (try) to vote for those who have a conscience for MORALITY. For those against Abortion and a One World Government. For those who truly believe in and uphold Christian Religious Liberty. GOD's Judgment on America and her Churches will be because of their lack of Respect to HIM and for the rampant immorality. The problem in America is not so much to do with "bad politics" and a "bad/poor economy" as it is with the slacker american Church, the free-falling immorality and the on-going BABY KILLING (for the sake of $$$ and ushering in the New World Order's plans of POPULATION CONTROL.
---Gordon on 10/27/10


I will vote for the INDEPENDENCE party candidates. In Minnesota, that will be: Tom Horner.

My reasoning is that I don't think that the DEMOCRATS have Biblical values at all. And the REPUBLICANS seem slanted -- TOO MUCH -- towards Corporations. Businesses are earner more money than ever, yet people around the nation are struggling.

I believe that it's "time for a change" with the INDEPENDENT parties. The current path that the DEMOCRATS, and REPUBLICANS, have put the USA on is -- both "unsustainable" and a "recipe for disaster".

I'll get off my soapbox now. Thanks for listening.

I agree with Karen, my vote is private as well, but i will pray diligently before going to the polls, and you can believe i wont vote for many that are in office right now weather democrat or republican.
---Lea on 10/27/10


I will do what I have done EVERY election since I was eligible. I WILL VOTE. And I will vote the way I want to vote and it will be a "SECRET" ballot because that is the way it works. It is no one else's business how I will vote.
---KarenD on 10/27/10


no matter whose name is on the ticket and what party he/she/it is affiliated, i keep reading Jesus Christ. I sincerely hope this helps.
