Tell Congress to Vote No

Posted by robertgreenwald on December 3rd, 2009


President Obama has decided to send more than 30,000 extra troops to Afghanistan, at a cost of more than $100 billion/year. But America cannot afford a war that does not make us safer, and Congress has the power to stop the escalation. Vote NO on any spending bill that would send more troops to Afghanistan.

    My hopes were that President Obama would use his 20 years of church attendance and wisdom therein to make a God Given decision on the matter of war in Afghanistan. Does Obama not know, “Resist Not Evil” Tit for Tat doesn't make you any less evil than the offender! Or how about: “For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.” 2 Peter 2:21 – “Be Holy For I Am Holy”, and a direct commandment: “Thou Shalt Not Kill” “Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin.” – Leaves the question, Does President Obama realize that he will now be responsible for the lives of Innocent men, women and children who will be killed or maimed (or falsely imprisoned/tortured) for the sake of bringing Peace and safety to our own country? For the sake of “Protecting America” we would sacrifice the lives of thousands more young troops and innocent foreigners?

    At the very least, We know that through the wayward acts of non-believing Generals that do not know their bible or believe in the word of God (America's Motto: “In God We Trust”? Yeah, and I have land in Florida), our own nation is at risk of damnation having put our trust in a supposedly “Christian” President, who then puts his trust in the “War Mongers” is in my opinion, also responsible for the innocent blood shed upon the citizens of Afghan. Collateral Damage, the killing and maiming of non-combatants is still “KILLING”.

    OBAMA is not exempt from God's own judgment, that to be responsible for condoning a war that allows the destruction of an innocent people will only bring “Blood Upon His Own Hands” as if he did it himself.

    What if the Taliban/al Queda were strewn about our streets, would we want another country bombing or shooting up our homes, or have their troops busting up and ransacking our homes/businesses, or hauling one of our family members off to a secluded prison camp without evidence of wrong doing? I think not!

    Charley Wilson had the right idea! Supply a way of means for the Afghans to survive by ways of defending themselves. Let them fight their own wars, and put the emphasis back on securing our own borders. Bring The Troops Back Home and station them on our “OWN” borders…..It should have been a no brainer!

    The way I see it is, “He who has the biggest arsenal of weapons, wins the fight” which is no better than “The Bully with the biggest Muscles”.
    And who exactly “OWNS” all those weapons? Who Stands To Prophet Off The Sale Of Those Weapons?” It surely isn't me!

    With “Global Warming, CO2 Emissions, Oil Barons, Fraudulent Banking CEO's, Rip Off Insurance Companies, Pharmaceutical/Medical Lobbyists (bribing our so called appointed), Lack of Health Care, Wall Street, The Jobless Rate, Home Foreclosures, Poor Economy, etc,” Just tell me how the hell we can even “AFFORD” a war where we “ALL” know the money has to be borrowed to pay for it (WITH INTEREST!), and now the American Citizen who for the most part are totally against this stupid war will not only have to pay for it, but also their Children's Children's Children….Or maybe WWIII is just around the corner and God will eventually just put an end to all this misery once and for all!

    Wake Up People, “Wait for the end, Your damned already” Killing is not the answer! Let's clean up our “OWN” backyard first! Then perhaps we can be Good Samaritans once again and share our wealth as individuals and not through CORPORATE MONEY MONGERS! who get not just the slice, but the whole damned PIE! We keep going like this, there will be nothing left!

    Keep in mind people, The smartest way to destroy an entire country, is to deplete that country of it's assets..The way were going now is like trying to draw blood from a turnip. America's Sovereignty has been sold off through “Wall Street” long ago, where America is now owned by investor's through out the world!

    One more thing! If “London” and other European countries been hit with “Terrorism”, targeted by al Queda and the Taliban, why is “Nato” only sending in 7,000 troops? Isnt' the “EURO DOLLAR” stronger than the U.S. DOLLAR? Go Figure! Americans are being taken for idiots!

    The question we all have to ask ourselves is this? Have you prepared a place in Heaven for yourselves? Because if your waiting for the end to come before making your peace with God, Your damned already!

    As far as those committing crimes against this nation and the world in general, Let it be known, “He who dies with the most toys….Can't take it with him”

    Life is not about what you “EARN” that is important, but the value in what you “LEARN” that is! and I'm not talking about a college education either, as you can't take that with you either! Read your bibles…and know! “True Religion is not an institution, it's a personal revelation in knowing…The Word Of God! and what “TRUE RELIGION” really is! “JAMES 1:27″ as God is not the author of confusion or man made religion. Helping Those Less Fortunate Than Yourselves, and following the two greatest commandments! Matthew 22:36-40
