A Political Strategy to Defeat the Democratic Party by Targeting Their Base Exposing the Democratic Party’s Departure from the Land of the Living and the Lawful By Al Lemmo Dearborn, Michigan March, 2015
Outline of the Presentation Basic Approach, Problems to Overcome and Objectives The United States Constitution and the Democrats’ Agenda Dr. Martin Luther King’s Philosophy, Principles and Vision of The Beloved Community Government and Religion - The Ten Commandments and the Democrats’ Agenda The Democrats: Party of Divisions and Wars – focus on the War on the Prenatal Child The Nation’s Philosophical Premise of Intrinsicism and the Cult of Abortionism The Democrats’ Agenda and the Mental Abortion The Democrats’ Destructive Principles and Messages Questions for Democrat Voters and Conclusion
Basic Approach Destroy the positive image the Democrats have created for themselves with the American people Demonstrate that the Democrats’ overall agenda is harmful to our people and our country Target the Party as a whole rather than waste resources on numerous individual races – a party platform based approach Appeal to the basic intelligence and goodness of the American people to reject the Democrats’ agenda of division, destruction, death and moral degradation Appeal to the positive principles of life, liberty, justice, rule of law, personal virtue, etc.
Problem: Some Myths That Need Busting Not all of these will be addressed in this presentation 1.Republicans are the party of Big Business and Big Money 2.Republicans are anti-woman, anti-immigrant, anti-science, anti-union, anti-worker and anti-social and economic justice 3.Republicans are the party of the status quo 4.“Limited government” is just a preference rather than the law 5.Democrats fight for the “Little Guy” 6.Democrats fight for justice 7.The Constitution empowers the government to solve all our problems and provide us with whatever goods and services we need or want
Problem: Some Public Education That Needs to be Accomplished There are real and important differences between the Republican and Democratic Parties Many important votes in Congress and state legislatures fall along party lines with relatively few rebels from each camp – voting “scorecards” from advocacy/issue organizations clearly show this The real power in legislatures is exercised in the committees, all of which are controlled by the majority party A vote for any candidate is a vote to empower the agenda of that candidate’s party since the candidate’s seat counts toward the majority in the chamber and could change control of the committees In spite of media derision, the battles over spending are deadly serious and not “shenanigans”
Problem: Republicans/Conservatives Keep Fighting on our Opponents’ Terms and Turf Every attempt to address particular problems or fix particular programs that lacks Constitutional authority is conceding the legitimacy of the Democrats’ unlawful approach to government. Approaching every so-called “issue” on the Democrats’ terms only makes Republicans look miserly, uncaring, cold-hearted, etc. We cannot out-Democrat the Democrats! The leadership of the so-called “Democratic” Party consists of thieves, homicidal psychotics, liars and ideologically driven corrupters of our nation’s economic, social, political and educational systems, as well as of the very moral character of our people. The characteristics of the so-called “Democratic” Party fit the description of an organized crime syndicate craving political power rather than riches. The “Democrats” are obsessed with CONTROL or, as Orwell put it, POWER. Republicans need to TAKE THE GLOVES OFF!!!
Objectives Demonstrate that: The Democratic Party’s agenda is entirely inconsistent with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Dream and Vision of The Beloved Community. Their agenda abandons the principles of nonviolence, inclusiveness, justice and love of neighbor. The Democrats’ agenda is abusive towards opponents, undermining goodwill and making reconciliation difficult The Democrats’ agenda does violence to the rule of law, especially trampling Constitutional protections against government overreach The Democrats’ agenda undermines the values, hopes and moral integrity of the American people The Democrats’ agenda enables ongoing direct physical violence to the most innocent and helpless members of the human community The Democrats’ agenda and messages are deadly to African-Americans and other components of the Party’s base
Importance of the Constitution The Supreme Law of the Land (Article VI) If you have ever worked for the government at any level, have ever been in the military or are a naturalized citizen, you have taken an oath in some form to support the Constitution of the United States as required in Article VI. This oath does not expire. Abiding by the provisions of the Constitution is essential to having rule of law
2012 Republican Platform - GOP 2012 Republican Platform (PDF)GOP 2012 Republican Platform (PDF) Balanced Budget Constitutional Amendment requiring super-majority for a tax increase Annual Audit of Federal Reserve Bills cite constitutional authority Separate but equal branches honoring delegated authority Defend against activist judiciary Sanctity of Life Traditional Marriage Repeal Obamacare Free market economy Support small business and entrepreneurship Reduced regulation Significant tax reform, including repeal Death Tax and Alternative Minimum Tax Adherence to the Constitution with emphasis on 1 st, 2 nd, 4 th, 5 th, 9 th and 10 th Amendments American Sovereignty in US Courts Energy Independence ImmigrationImmigration – build the fence, NO Amnesty, English as national language, e-verify Source: http://www.platformrepublicancaucus.com/platform.html
From the 2012 Republican Platform “Taxes, by their very nature, reduce a citizen’s freedom. Their proper role in a free society should be to fund services that are essential and authorized by the Constitution, such as national security, and the care of those who cannot care for themselves. We reject the use of taxation to redistribute income, fund unnecessary or ineffective programs, or foster the crony capitalism that corrupts both politicians and corporations.” Many of the issues that divide us the most boil down to matters of responsibility and authority.
“Limited” Government Republicans habitually say they believe in “limited” government The phrase sounds like a mere preference to the average citizen who may want expanded government services and has been conditioned to believe this is a legitimate expectation for people to have of their government A proposed better phrase that unmistakably gets to the point is “lawful” government
The Founders on Government George Washington: “Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” John Adams: “Power always thinks... that it is doing God's service when it is violating all his laws.” “Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.” Thomas Jefferson: “A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.” “I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” “That government is best which governs the least, because its people discipline themselves.” “The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government.”
A Sad Reflection on Government “But what is government itself, but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.” James Madison Federalist No. 51
Purposes of the Constitution as Stated in the Preamble To form a more perfect UnionTo provide for the common defense To establish JusticeTo promote the general Welfare To insure domestic TranquilityTo secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity The Supreme Court’s judicial dictate in Roe v. Wade, which the Democrats embrace: Divided us like nothing else Established injustice of the worst sort – the deprivation of life – against the most innocent and helpless among us, on a massive scale Ensured domestic upheaval for the last 40 plus years Prevented any defense for the most helpless among us Promoted general moral degradation Secured the curses of physical, mental/emotional, spiritual and social problems for many women and men Destroyed tens of millions of our posterity The American people continue to chafe under the morally and socially unacceptable consequences of this brazen act of judicial tyranny which is incompatible with everything this nation has ever stood for. This controversy is not going away, at least not until the so-called Democrats are largely removed from positions of power.
Some Key Provisions of the U.S. Constitution Article I (legislative branch) Section 1. All legislative powers vested in Congress No such powers to make laws are vested in the executive or judicial branches Article I Section 8. Enumerated powers of Congress The enumerated powers are very specific - only those thought to be necessary for the central government to exercise – all else left to the states Much of what the federal government does today is not lawful under the Constitution’s list of enumerated powers, including healthcare, education, welfare, transportation, energy, agriculture and much more General Welfare – not carte blanche per the Tenth Amendment Commerce clause – “…among the several States…” – interstate commerce only Necessary and proper clause – redundant and unnecessary Article III (judicial branch) Section 1. The judicial Power – not defined Only the jurisdiction of the judiciary is defined in Section 2 Congress empowered to regulate the Supreme Court – Sec. 2 clause 2 Therefore, “Court stripping” is a legitimate power of Congress Tenth Amendment – Reserved powers – negates broad interpretation of “general Welfare” “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
Enumerated Powers Under the Constitution [I]t is to be remembered that the general government is not to be charged with the whole power of making and administering laws. Its jurisdiction is limited to certain enumerated objects, which concern all the members of the republic, but which are not to be attained by the separate provisions of any. The subordinate governments, which can extend their care to all those other subjects which can be separately provided for, will retain their due authority and activity. James Madison Federalist No. 14 Clearly, Madison did not anticipate the usurpations that would result in the “general” government encroaching upon many of the powers of the “subordinate” governments (of the states).

I, §8, cl. 3) Webster’s 1828 Dictionary says “commerce” is the buying and selling of goods. In Federalist No. 22 (4 th para) and Federalist No. 42 (9 th & 10 th paras), Hamilton and Madison explain the primary purpose of the clause: To prohibit the States from imposing taxes & tolls on merchandize as it is transported through the States for purposes of buying and selling.
Three Clauses the Supreme Court Perverts to Get Around the Enumerated Powers (part 2 of 3) By Publius Huldah The “general Welfare” clause (Preamble & Art. I, §8, cl. 1) Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines “welfare” as: “2. Exemption from any unusual evil or calamity; the enjoyment of peace and prosperity, or the ordinary blessings of society and civil government; applied to states.” It has nothing to do with handouts, public relief, or the feds doing whatever they think is a good idea. In Federalist No. 41 (last 4 paras), Madison points out that Art. I, § 8, employs “general terms” which are “immediately” followed by the “enumeration of particular powers” which “explain and qualify”, by a “recital of particulars”, the “general phrase”. It is “error” to focus on “general expressions” and disregard “the specifications which ascertain and limit their import”; thus, to argue that the general expression provides an unlimited power is “an absurdity”. So yes! The powers of Congress over the Country at Large really are limited primarily to those few listed at Art. I, §8, clauses 3-16. Our Framers understood that “general Welfare”, i.e., the enjoyment of peace and prosperity, and the enjoyment of the ordinary blessings of society and civil government, was possible only with a federal government of strictly limited powers. [Let that sink in.]
Three Clauses the Supreme Court Perverts to Get Around the Enumerated Powers (part 3 of 3) By Publius Huldah The “necessary and proper” clause (Art. I, §8, last clause) This clause delegates to Congress power to pass all laws necessary and proper to execute its declared powers (Federalist No. 29, 4 th para); “the constitutional operation of the intended government would be precisely the same if [this clause] were entirely obliterated as if [it] were repeated in every article”; a power to do something must be a power to pass all laws necessary and proper for the execution of that power, and thus the clause is “perfectly harmless”, a “tautology or redundancy” (Federalist No. 33, 2 nd & 3 rd paras). Madison writes to the same effect in (Federalist No. 44, under his discussion of the SIXTH class of powers). So the clause permits the execution of powers already delegated and enumerated in the Constitution. No additional substantive powers are granted by the clause. Learn the enumerated powers delegated to Congress & to the President. With our Votes & Nullification of unconstitutional acts, let’s enforce the Constitution we already have. Don’t let others change or replace it!

Some Historically Mistaken Ideas About the New Constitution “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected. The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State. The operations of the federal government will be most extensive and important in times of war and danger; those of the State governments, in times of peace and security. As the former periods will probably bear a small proportion to the latter, the State governments will here enjoy another advantage over the federal government. The more adequate, indeed, the federal powers may be rendered to the national defense, the less frequent will be those scenes of danger which might favor their ascendancy over the governments of the particular States. If the new Constitution be examined with accuracy and candor, it will be found that the change which it proposes consists much less in the addition of NEW POWERS to the Union, than in the invigoration of its ORIGINAL POWERS. The regulation of commerce, it is true, is a new power; but that seems to be an addition which few oppose, and from which no apprehensions are entertained.“ James Madison Federalist No. 45
Judicial Review Established by the Supreme Court case of Marbury v. Madison in 1803. The Court's decision was opposed by then President Thomas Jefferson, who lamented that this doctrine made the Constitution "a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary, which they may twist and shape into any form they please." Jefferson couldn’t have guessed how right he would be proven with the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade.
Judicial Power “Whoever attentively considers the different departments of power must perceive, that, in a government in which they are separated from each other, the judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution; because it will be least in a capacity to annoy or injure them. The Executive not only dispenses the honors, but holds the sword of the community. The legislature not only commands the purse, but prescribes the rules by which the duties and rights of every citizen are to be regulated. The judiciary, on the contrary, has no influence over either the sword or the purse; no direction either of the strength or of the wealth of the society; and can take no active resolution whatever. It may truly be said to have neither FORCE nor WILL, but merely judgment; and must ultimately depend upon the aid of the executive arm (emphasis mine) even for the efficacy of its judgments.” … “The courts must declare the sense of the law; and if they should be disposed to exercise WILL instead of JUDGMENT, the consequence would equally be the substitution of their pleasure to that of the legislative body.” Alexander Hamilton Federalist No. 78 The exercise of will by the courts has become routine and much desired by the Democrats to enact their agenda directly, free from the messy legislative process. They long ago accomplished their objective of Rule of Whim or “substitution of their pleasure to that of the legislative body.”
Administrative Law Largely under Democrat rule, Congress has habitually directed Executive branch agencies to write “rules” which carry the force of law, then execute the rules and adjudicate any disputes which may arise in their application. Aside from violating the principle of non-delegation, which was recognized by the ancient Greeks, this practice combines all three branches of government in the same hands and leaves citizens with little or no recourse. “The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.” James Madison Federalist No. 47 Does it trouble the Democrats that We the People are experiencing the creeping loss of our liberties due to the expansion of regulation by administrative law?
Some of Dr. King’s Concepts and Principles TRIPLE EVILS The Triple Evils of POVERTY, RACISM and MILITARISM are forms of violence that exist in a vicious cycle. They are interrelated, all- inclusive, and stand as barriers to our living in the Beloved Community. When we work to remedy one evil, we affect all evils. To work against the Triple Evils, you must develop a nonviolent frame of mind as described in the “Six Principles of Nonviolence” and use the Kingian model for social action outlined in the “Six Steps for Nonviolent Social Change.” Source: The Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change http://www.thekingcenter.org/king-philosophy
This presentation will demonstrate that the Democratic Party’s agenda - Promotes moral and spiritual poverty - Is closely related to racism - Pursues numerous policies that can be considered wars and have predictably destructive effects
Some Aspects of Dr. King’s Beloved Community “…a realistic, achievable goal that could be attained by a critical mass of people committed to and trained in the philosophy and methods of nonviolence.” “…a global vision, in which all people can share in the wealth of the earth. In the Beloved Community, poverty, hunger and homelessness will not be tolerated because international standards of human decency will not allow it. Racism and all forms of discrimination, bigotry and prejudice will be replaced by an all- inclusive spirit of sisterhood and brotherhood. In the Beloved Community, international disputes will be resolved by peaceful conflict-resolution and reconciliation of adversaries, instead of military power. Love and trust will triumph over fear and hatred. Peace with justice will prevail over war and military conflict.” “…all conflicts in The Beloved Community should end with reconciliation of adversaries cooperating together in a spirit of friendship and goodwill.” Source: The Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change http://www.thekingcenter.org/king-philosophy
SIX PRINCIPLES OF NONVIOLENCE (part 1 of 2) PRINCIPLE ONE: Nonviolence is a way of life for courageous people. It is active nonviolent resistance to evil. It is aggressive spiritually, mentally and emotionally. PRINCIPLE TWO: Nonviolence seeks to win friendship and understanding. The end result of nonviolence is redemption and reconciliation. The purpose of nonviolence is the creation of the Beloved Community. PRINCIPLE THREE: Nonviolence seeks to defeat injustice not people. Nonviolence recognizes that evildoers are also victims and are not evil people. The nonviolent resister seeks to defeat evil not people.
SIX PRINCIPLES OF NONVIOLENCE (part 2 of 2) PRINCIPLE FOUR: Nonviolence holds that suffering can educate and transform. Nonviolence accepts suffering without retaliation. Unearned suffering is redemptive and has tremendous educational and transforming possibilities. PRINCIPLE FIVE: Nonviolence chooses love instead of hate. Nonviolence resists violence of the spirit as well as the body. Nonviolent love is spontaneous, unmotivated, unselfish and creative. PRINCIPLE SIX: Nonviolence believes that the universe is on the side of justice. The nonviolent resister has deep faith that justice will eventually win. Nonviolence believes that God is a God of justice.
SIX STEPS OF NONVIOLENT SOCIAL CHANGE 1. INFORMATION GATHERING: To understand and articulate an issue, problem or injustice facing a person, community, or institution you must do research. You must investigate and gather all vital information from all sides of the argument or issue so as to increase your understanding of the problem. You must become an expert on your opponent's position. 2. EDUCATION: It is essential to inform others, including your opposition, about your issue. This minimizes misunderstandings and gains you support and sympathy. 3. PERSONAL COMMITMENT: Daily check and affirm your faith in the philosophy and methods of nonviolence. Eliminate hidden motives and prepare yourself to accept suffering, if necessary, in your work for justice. 4. DISCUSSION/NEGOTIATION: Using grace, humor and intelligence, confront the other party with a list of injustices and a plan for addressing and resolving these injustices. Look for what is positive in every action and statement the opposition makes. Do not seek to humiliate the opponent but to call forth the good in the opponent.
5. DIRECT ACTION: These are actions taken when the opponent is unwilling to enter into, or remain in, discussion/negotiation. These actions impose a "creative tension" into the conflict, supplying moral pressure on your opponent to work with you in resolving the injustice. 6. RECONCILIATION: Nonviolence seeks friendship and understanding with the opponent. Nonviolence does not seek to defeat the opponent. Nonviolence is directed against evil systems, forces, oppressive policies, unjust acts, but not against persons. Through reasoned compromise, both sides resolve the injustice with a plan of action. Each act of reconciliation is one step closer to the 'Beloved Community.'

King’s SIX PRINCIPLES OF NONVIOLENCE as seen from the Constitutionalist’s perspective (part 1 of 2) PRINCIPLE ONE: Nonviolence is a way of life for courageous people. It is active nonviolent resistance to evil. It is aggressive spiritually, mentally and emotionally. Constitutionalists have never resorted to physical violence in opposing the destruction of their protections against federal government overreach. PRINCIPLE TWO: Nonviolence seeks to win friendship and understanding. The end result of nonviolence is redemption and reconciliation. The purpose of nonviolence is the creation of the Beloved Community. Constitutionalists seek an end to abuses of their Constitutional protections and the spiritual redemption of their fellow citizens who are committing theft by ballot box. These are steps toward the creation of the Beloved Community. PRINCIPLE THREE: Nonviolence seeks to defeat injustice not people. Nonviolence recognizes that evildoers are also victims and are not evil people. The nonviolent resister seeks to defeat evil not people. Constitutionalists seek to defeat the evil of unlawful government and the spiritual healing of their fellow citizens who destroy Constitutional protections.
King’s SIX PRINCIPLES OF NONVIOLENCE as seen from the Constitutionalist’s perspective (part 2 of 2) PRINCIPLE FOUR: Nonviolence holds that suffering can educate and transform. Nonviolence accepts suffering without retaliation. Unearned suffering is redemptive and has tremendous educational and transforming possibilities. Constitutionalists have never sought reparations or other vengeful actions against those who have unlawfully violated Constitutional protections. PRINCIPLE FIVE: Nonviolence chooses love instead of hate. Nonviolence resists violence of the spirit as well as the body. Nonviolent love is spontaneous, unmotivated, unselfish and creative. Constitutionalists have always resisted violence against the rule of law by creative persuasion, legislation and judicial actions and the amendment process, in spite of persistent abuses. PRINCIPLE SIX: Nonviolence believes that the universe is on the side of justice. The nonviolent resister has deep faith that justice will eventually win. Nonviolence believes that God is a God of justice. Constitutionalists believe in our Constitution, which recognizes Jesus as Lord (signed “in the Year of our Lord” 1787), to provide justice if all would abide by it.
The Tenth Amendment and the Beloved Community Many Americans recognize that the Tenth Amendment, the last article of the Bill of Rights, was intended to protect all of us from exactly the kind of federal overreach that has resulted in the bloated monstrosity that is today’s federal government. The habitual violations of the Tenth Amendment by the Democrats and their accomplices in the judiciary, the media and among some Republicans (RINOs – Republicans In Name Only) are the root cause of much of the ill feeling among Americans. The power to remove this ill feeling rests with those who have kept the Democrats in power with their votes and its removal would be a major step toward achieving Dr. King’s Beloved Community.
Why Running Against the Entire Democrat Agenda Matters Unless Constitutionalists can make the case that the routine violations of our Tenth Amendment protections are abusive of Americans, our “progressive” friends will continue to view their unlawful approaches to our problems as legitimate charity and conforming to Christian teaching. They will continue to believe that they hold the high moral ground and are more holy and righteous than those committed to following the Constitution. Note the misplaced sense of responsibility and responsibility transference in the following email (next chart) from someone claiming to be pro-life.

Email response to my fundraising letter for the 2012 elections from a Catholic friend of long standing Dear Al -- As a pro-life advocate I want to promote candidates for political office who actively support life. To be pro-birth is not enough. If a candidate wants to cut support that enables young women to choose life for their unborn children, how is this nurturing life? Is that what Jesus would do? If a candidate wants to cut programs that mentor young fathers-to-be so they can recognize and meet their responsibilities, how is this nurturing life? A recent EWTN speaker pointed out that the abortion rate for those in poverty is 300% higher than for those above the poverty line. To slash the budget for programs that offer counseling, food, shelter, alternative education, job training, and health care is often to slash the lifeline that enables the most fragile in society to choose life. Finally, would the same Jesus who told us: “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you…” choose to expand our military force by trillions of dollars in the next few years—not even requested by the armed forces—when our nation has poured more money into defense than the next 20 nations combined? Where is the trillion dollars for peace academies, conflict resolution programs, diplomacy training and a host of life-affirming methods that would greatly diminish the call for violent force? We need courageous men and women to affirm life every step of the way.
My email response to my friend Thank you for your response. What most people don't understand when it comes to all these federal programs is that our Constitution prohibits the government from being involved in nearly all of them. Yes, they do good things for people, but failing to abide by our supreme law, which was written to restrict the power of government, is failure to abide by a still higher law: to love our neighbor as ourselves. Charity belongs at the state or local level where it is closer to the people. This is what the Church's teaching on subsidiarity requires. And apart from government action, charity should be our responsibility as individuals, as church and as members of whatever organizations we choose to associate with to deal with particular issues. Passing off our responsibility to the federal government, which has no legitimate powers to conduct social programs, has corrupted our whole society in many ways, building a culture of dependency that has wrecked families, and distorting our government functions. I'd love to sit down with you or anyone else and show them exactly where in the Constitution the restrictions I'm speaking of exist. I know you and many others have the best of intentions, but empowering an evil agenda -- and I don't use the word evil lightly -- to accomplish things that have no justification under the law to begin with, is no way to exercise responsible citizenship or Christian charity.
Ideas on Government and Religion (1 of 3) Articles of Confederation: “And Whereas it hath pleased the Great Governor of the World to incline the hearts of the legislatures we respectively represent in Congress, to approve of, and to authorize us to ratify the said Articles of Confederation and perpetual Union.” … “In Witness whereof we have hereunto set our hands in Congress. Done at Philadelphia in the State of Pennsylvania the ninth day of July in the Year of our Lord One Thousand Seven Hundred and Seventy-Eight, and in the Third Year of the independence of America.” Northwest Ordinance of 1787: “Art. 3. Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.” (The Bible was the main textbook.) … “Done by the United States, in Congress assembled, the 13th day of July, in the year of our Lord 1787, and of their sovereignty and independence the twelfth.”
Ideas on Government and Religion (2 of 3) George Washington: “It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.” “Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.” Thomas Jefferson): “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” - Declaration of Independence “It behooves every man who values liberty of conscience for himself, to resist invasions of it in the case of others: or their case may, by change of circumstances, become his own.” “God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever.”
Ideas on Government and Religion (3 of 3) John Adams: We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other. Alexander Hamilton: The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.
American Government and the Ten Commandments The below statement, author unknown, states important truths: We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all of our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government; upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.
The Democrat Agenda and The Ten Commandments (1 of 3) Idolatry and Killing: By the idolatrous self-worship of their own intellects as competent to determine criteria for who is or isn't a person under the law, the Democrats have rationalized massive prenatal child-slaying. This is simply the ancient practice of living human sacrifice (abortion "rites") to additional idols this nation now worships, especially unrestricted sexual expression. The fatal discrimination against the prenatal population arises from the same idolatrous, self-worshiping arrogance that is the source of racism. It's the same ugly ideas, just different criteria for choice. The Democrats are first cousins to racists, believing that human rights are granted or denied to the powerless by the powerful, based on criteria of their choice, rather than being intrinsic with each human life, which was the premise of our nation before it was struck down by Roe v. Wade. Another idol they worship is equality of outcomes (rather than equality of opportunity, equality under the law or equality in the eyes of God) regardless of talent, effort, accomplishment, drive or virtue.
The Democrat Agenda and The Ten Commandments (2 of 3 continued) Coveting: Their emphasis on class warfare between "haves" and "have nots" promotes and rationalizes covetousness. Theirs is the politics of envy. Stealing: Their confiscatory approach to taxation, without constitutional authority for their spending priorities, is simply theft. It routinely violates the principle of equal protection of the laws by far more heavily taxing some of us, and punishes success. Dishonoring father and mother: They dishonor father and mother with their support for euthanasia and doctor-assisted suicide, pressuring the elderly to end their own lives. Sexual and Relational Sin: They condone and encourage sexual and relational sin by their support for mainstreaming and normalizing homosexuality and marriage for SADS, Sexual Affinity Disorder Sufferers (a compassionate and accurate term, unlike the dishonest and misleading "gays") as well as sexual relations of every kind for minors and others outside of marriage.
The Democrat Agenda and The Ten Commandments (3 of 3 continued) False Witness: They bear false witness against their neighbors with their wild accusations of racism, hate and judgmentalism in attempts to intimidate, silence or put on the defensive any critics of their destructive ideas. This is really psychological projection, attributing to others what is true of themselves. Misuse of the name of God: They misuse the name of God when they violate their oaths of office to support the Constitution by pursuing legislation for which there is no constitutional authority and by supporting judicial dictates and executive usurpations which subvert legislative authority altogether. These pursuits are violations of the laws of man as well as of the laws of God.
Democrats: The Party of Division Divide us by class, sex, race, religion, generations, language groups, financial interests Divide us into tax payers and tax beneficiaries Divide income from work Divide knowledge from schooling Divide certification from achievement Divide advancement from merit Divide benefits from fiscal realities Divide morality from law Divide power from accountability Divide legislation from Constitutional authority Divide voting from citizenship Divide individuals from responsibility Divide responsibilities from freedoms Divide punishment from crime Divide the right to life from prenatal lives (so much for the “Little Guy”) Divide children from parental authority Divide fatherhood from family Divide religion from moral development Divide sex from love, commitment and marriage
Democrat Wars In Progress (a partial list) War on the Rule of Law and the Constitution War on the American Taxpayer War on Fiscal and Moral Sanity War on American Industries War on Recognition of Our Creator War on Religious Freedom War on the Family War on the Prenatal Child War on Women (the real one!) War on Black America War on American Values War on Personal Virtue, Self-Confidence and Moral Character War on the Foundations of Western Civilization Much could be said about each of these wars, but this presentation will focus on the War on the Prenatal Child
Democrats are waging war against American traditions, standards and values: Self-reliance – the last thing Democrats want – the more dependent you are on government, the more they own you Personal Virtue – the Constitution will not work for the governance of any but a moral and virtuous people Monogamous and Heterosexual Marriage – one of the foundations of any morally, psychologically, physically and spiritually healthy society The Nuclear Family – the most critical institution for the raising of children which the political left has historically sought to undermine and replace Private Initiative – any private initiatives must be approved in advance by government through a series of burdensome permitting and regulatory hurdles Free Enterprise – ownership is not sought since that would bring with it responsibility – Democrats seek to control private enterprises – their economic model is not socialism but fascism Rule of Law – to be replaced by the Rule of Whim characteristic of the Democrats’ philosophy of childhood: “If I want it I should have it.” Sanctity of Human Life – This war has featured violence to life, truth, values, language, law, government, medicine, ethics and principles of human rights
Does the Democrats’ War on America Meet the Definition of Treason in the U.S. Constitution? “Article III, Section 3. Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” - U.S. Constitution The Democrats have been waging all-out war against the very foundations of American society for decades, including war against our economic, social, political, legal, ethical and educational systems and the very moral character of our people. The present (Obama) Democrat Administration has been relentlessly tearing down the good name of the United States while apologizing to and flattering our adversaries.
The Democrats’ Agenda Promotes Genocide The International Convention of the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide on December 9, 1948 set the United Nations definition of genocide: General Assembly Resolution 260A (III) Article 2 In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: (a) Killing members of the group; (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group Electing a Democrat to our presidency allows the seeding of our entire diplomatic corps with abortion zealots and empowers history’s most egregious campaign of cultural imperialism. Democrats are committed to jamming abortion down the throats of Third World nations and destroying good will toward our country.
Proportionality: inflicted damage must be proportionate to the good expected - Trades a human life for values typically less than life - Grotesquely disproportionate to the ends usually sought Just War Criteria Violated in the Democrats’ War on the Prenatal Child Just Cause: to confront “a real and present danger” to protect innocent life - Very seldom the case with abortion Competent Authority: war must be declared by those with responsibility for public order - Decision typically left to the distraught, ill-informed or underage individuals Comparative Justice: Are the values at stake critical enough to override the presumption against war (abortion)? Right Intention: War can only be conducted to satisfy the just cause - Just cause usually absent Last Resort: All peaceful alternatives have already been exhausted - Adoption usually possible Probability of Success: The outcome cannot be disproportionate or futile - Significant damage to women’s physical, mental and spiritual health and to their social standing - Damage to society’s ethical values (sanctity of human life)
Laws of War and Other Principles Violated by Analogy in the Democrats’ War on the Prenatal Child Prohibiting of Poisonous Weapons Prohibiting of Refusal of Quarter Immunity for Non-Combatants Prohibiting of Live Dismemberment (Mutilation) of Unarmed Target Population International Standards for Treatment of Prisoners including Prohibiting of Experimentation Rationalization on the Basis of “Hard Cases” Results in Overwhelming Collateral Damage Literally Surgical “First Strikes” to Preempt the Recognition and Protection of Law Normally Accorded at Birth
The Democrats’ War on the Prenatal Child Withholds or suspends every principle of humane, compassionate, lawful and civilized behavior No benefit of any doubt No presumption of personhood Most excruciatingly painful methods of execution used Execution permitted for any reason or no reason The unwanted prenatal child confronts us with an insoluble problem except by resort to violence. Its very existence means loss of control, a maddening prospect for those obsessed with control. The prenatal child: - Cannot be negotiated with - Cannot be deterred - Cannot be appeased - Cannot be threatened - Cannot be embargoed - Cannot be held hostage - Cannot be imprisoned - Cannot be stayed from being born, its natural destiny, by any non-violent means
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” - The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King devoted his life to opposing the choice to discriminate on the basis of race Exactly one week after his January 15 th birthday, 7 days which should be designated National Hypocrisy Week or National Schizophrenia Week, we observe the January 22 nd anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, which freed us to choose to discriminate fatally on the basis of "wantedness", physical maturity, appearance, sex, health, dependence, sentience, parentage, or any other criterion, including race, if it is done before birth Are these criteria any less arbitrary or subjective than race? By what logic shall we choose criteria for excluding others from the protection of the human community? Would any such exclusion be an act of justice? What does the acceptance of such criteria for destruction say about the content of our character?
Intrinsicism The United States is founded on the philosophical premise that our unalienable human rights are intrinsic with our human lives. This premise, which I choose to call “Intrinsicism,” a single word and descriptive term, allows us to appeal to our Creator over the head of any tyrant or other would-be grantor or denier of our fundamental human rights for their recognition and protection. This premise has been called our “civic religion.” It is a protective and inclusive philosophy. All real Americans are Intrinsicists.
Intrinsicism (continued) The inclusive philosophy of Intrinsicism serves as a wall of separation between freedom and oppression; between civilization and barbarianism. Once this barrier has been breached, all criteria for destruction then compete on an equal basis because they are justified in principle. Abandoning Intrinsicism can and often does result in carnage. The U.S. has some 58,000,000 ‘disappeared.’ For over 40 years, the Democratic Party has stood in the way of extending any legal protection at all to prenatal children such that the horrific daily slaughter continues.
Rejection of Intrinsicism – The Cult of Abortionism Rejection of the philosophy of Intrinsicism is the basis of a cult religion that has been at the root of virtually every abuse ever inflicted on human individuals or populations. I call this cult "Abortionism" to clearly associate it with the most egregious violation of human rights in our country and most of the world today. However, its principles apply equally well to nearly every other human rights abuse in world history. Its standard practices are three “abortions” or terminations: See http://www.cul.detmich.com/essentials_of_abortionism.html
The Three Abortions All three “Abortions” are evils or sins Theological Abortion – terminates the authority of God to make the rules – activating principle: human will – fundamental human rights are granted or denied to the powerless by the powerful Abortionite creed: “My will be done” Mental Abortion – dehumanize the target individual(s) or population – activating principle: infatuation with humanintellect or self-worship – worship of the faculty of reason to eliminate conscience - essential to overcoming the moral obstacles to committing the most egregious violations of other human beings that all human societies prohibit – the Mental Abortion is authorized by the Theological Abortion The criteria for choice in conducting the Mental Abortion typically make perfect sense to the practicing Abortionite Physical Abortion – terminates the lives, liberties or property rights of the target population - activating principle: might makes right – anything can be justified against non-persons
A Principle of Conflict Resolution Attack the problem. It is not you against me; it is you and me against the problem. The problem is the problem. (Recall King’s principles of non-violence, attacking evil and unjust systems, not people.) The problem is sin. Our whole culture is part of the problem. The sexual devolution (to creatures with the moral code of rodents) normalized sexual sin and its consequences. The “this-world” and hereafter adverse consequences of sin remain unchanged. The problem starts with the Theological Abortion. Many people now believe they can make their own moral rules. Moral relativism arises from the Theological Abortion. Our political, ethical, moral, social and overall cultural environments have been seriously polluted. Major cleanup is necessary but the Democratic agenda stands in the way, dedicated to protecting this pollution as a legitimate expression of freedom.
The Sects of Abortionism The sects and subsects of this cult are characterized by their criteria for choice in performing the Mental Abortion and are named accordingly: Racist, Sexist, Creedist, Birthist, Classist, Utilitarianist, Functionalist, etc. Basically, Racist Abortionites and Birthist Abortionites, for example, share the same ugly ideas with other Abortionites. They believe it is up to them -- those who have power -- to grant or deny fundamental human rights to other human beings rather than that such rights are granted to all human beings by God. They differ only in their criteria for the choice of discriminating against others even to the point of rationalizing their destruction. Challenge those who protest this comparison to explain how they think they are different!
Secular Humanism or Abortionism? There is nothing secular about secular humanism. Its adherents are devoutly religious, idolatrously and fervently worshiping the idol of their own intellects. People think that “secular” is good or neutral due to misunderstandings of the purpose of the First Amendment, which are promoted by Democrats. It is a prettified way of saying “atheistic,” a world view that has an abysmal record in human governance. Why cover this up? “Humanism” sounds like something friendly to humans, which it is not. Speaking of Abortionite sects allows for easy comparison and linkage of all historical abuses of human rights. Even someone who claims to be for the positive good of “choice” cannot easily avoid the fact that to be for such choice one has to have committed a Mental Abortion on the target population, a characteristic shared by other more obvious abusers. Attention is focused on the only thing at issue: the nature of the choice. Abortionism demonstrates that the pro-life cause is based on the principles of human rights rather than on religious beliefs. Abortionism places abortion apologists in a difficult defensive position.
Language Shaping the Battlespace Fighting on one’s preferred turf has been recognized as a key advantage in battle for millennia The battlefield and weapons in this struggle consist of words and ideas Language shapes thinking which shapes actions Actions shape thinking which shapes language How many people even know there is a correct, scientific term for a pregnant woman, much less what it is?
Language – Fighting on Our Preferred Turf Refusing to Allow the Mental Abortion by Communicating in Abortionspeak The powers that be have seen to it that everyone knows and uses the word fetus, which is the correct, scientific term for what used to be called an unborn baby. This is precisely because it is strange, sterile, cold and dehumanizing. Likewise, the correct, scientific term for a pregnant woman is strange, sterile, cold and dehumanizing. But you will never hear it used outside of scientific circles because it is on no one’s agenda to dehumanize women in order to rationalize destroying them, whereas it is on many people’s agendas to dehumanize unborn babies in order to rationalize destroying them. The correct, scientific term for a pregnant woman is gravida. It’s from the same root as gravity, meaning “heavy,” as with child. Challenge opponents as to why they do not use this scientifically correct term while they insist on using “fetus.”
More Problems with Language Overcoming Abortionspeak, the Language of Denial, Confusion and Dehumanization Repro-destructive rites (or “rituals” so as not to be confused with the homonym “rights”) Viable – able to live in particular environments. This legacy term from the physician’s perspective has been used as though the “ability to live” is a function of medical technology after birth. This usage has suggested to many that the prenatal child is somehow not alive or doesn’t matter when it is perfectly viable in the only environment in which it is adapted to live at the early stages of the human life cycle. Suggested alternatives are intra-uterine viable and extra-uterine viable to make clear that the child is perfectly viable (i.e., able to live) at every stage of its existence and in both environments. Viability at a given stage of development depends on environment, not technology. See also: http://www.cul.detmich.com/glossary.html
From the 2012 Democratic National Platform: Protecting A Woman's Right to Choose. The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman's right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay. We oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right. Abortion is an intensely personal decision between a woman, her family, her doctor, and her clergy; there is no place for politicians or government to get in the way. We also recognize that health care and education help reduce the number of unintended pregnancies and thereby also reduce the need for abortions. We strongly and unequivocally support a woman's decision to have a child by providing affordable health care and ensuring the availability of and access to programs that help women during pregnancy and after the birth of a child, including caring adoption programs. What’s missing from this document? The prenatal child doesn’t even bear mentioning. It has been wiped out of mind by the Mental Abortion such that it does not exist and carries no significance. The Democratic National Platform is a document written by – and for – psychopaths.
Partial-Birth Abortion Consider what kind of mind it takes to hold a perfectly formed human baby in one’s hands, its legs kicking while its head is still within its mother, and then puncture its skull and suck its brains out. Anyone who could do this has first committed a complete Mental Abortion of the prenatal child. Guess which political party defended this atrocity?
Birthist Abortionite “logic”: “If you’re against abortion then don’t have one.” Let’s apply this “logic” to some other human behaviors: If you’re against slavery then don’t enslave anyone and don’t become enslaved yourself. That will solve the problem, right? If you’re against rape then don’t rape anyone and don’t get raped yourself. That will solve the problem, right? If you’re against postnatal murder then don’t murder anyone and don’t get murdered yourself. That will solve the problem, right? What do these examples have in common? In each case the primary victim has been mentally aborted and carries no significance in the mind of the person making the argument.
Birthist Abortionite “logic”: Answering the Bodily Autonomy Argument: “A woman has a right to control her own body” Our bodies are not autonomous – there are many restrictions on how we use them The argument can’t be limited to pregnant women, requires support for abortion at every stage of development and argues against any restrictions on a woman’s activities during pregnancy Abortion isn’t simply “withdrawing support” but active killing The unborn child is not, in any scientific or medical sense, an intruder or a parasite or a part of the mother. It is where it is supposed to be in the natural order and is biologically not the mother but a separate and unique human individual If an unborn baby exists at all it is because of the actions of its parents who have thereby become responsible for it regardless of whether its creation was intentional See also: http://www.personhoodusa.com/blog/no-pro-life-fanatic-could-ever-possibly-dispute/
The Declaration of Apathy, Moral Cowardice and/or Degradation, Intellectual Sloth, Self-Serving Cynicism and Women’s Moral Incompetence: “I Am Pro-Choice” Apathy – I don’t care if an unborn baby lives or dies or what abortion does to its mother. Moral Cowardice and/or Degradation – I have conducted a Mental Abortion sufficient to absolve myself of any obligation to defend the most innocent and helpless members of the human family and substituted apathy for compassion. I may also desire to engage in rodentism, the adoption of the moral code of rodents (whereby humans meet, briefly sniff each other out and then have at it) and wish to be able to easily clean up after any mistakes. Intellectual Sloth – I am passionately devoted to ignorance about the biological facts of life before birth and/or pathologically self-absorbed, regarding the entire subject of abortion as a matter of women controlling their own bodies and nothing else. Self-Serving Cynicism – I secretly desire many other people to have abortions because I believe it is to my benefit. This is especially true for minorities and Third World people whose numbers threaten my security, lifestyle, tax burden and potential access to resources. Women’s Moral Incompetence – I believe that women are so fragile and child-like that they cannot possibly be expected to be responsible for their own actions in becoming pregnant and must be allowed this deadly way out. Even in the case of forced pregnancy, women cannot be expected to handle adversity for the benefit of the common good (as men can to secure our freedoms) by making sacrifices to secure the integrity of the ethic of the sanctity of human life.
The Pontius Pilate Posture A Favorite Ploy of Democrat Politicians “I’m personally opposed to private executions of the known innocent but willing to assist in them (by providing taxpayer funding) because I believe it is to my political advantage”
Orwellian Aspects of the Democrats’ Agenda Orwell’s totalitarian party in 1984 had several slogans: War Is Peace - expresses the reverence for and sanctification of violence and the unlawful exercise of government power to accomplish their peaceful, utopian vision, regarded as so beneficial that working toward it would constitute peace in spite of the work itself consisting of violent acts. Freedom Is Slavery - expresses contempt for genuine, individually responsible development and exercise of conscience - the freedom to modify one's behavior to follow traditional ethical principles such as reverence for life, even at some personal cost, is regarded as slavery to antiquated, sentimental and oppressive ideas which are in conflict with the Democrats’ distorted concept of freedom Ignorance Is Strength – the strength of the Democrat agenda depends on ignorance to justify their many wars – the slogan expresses contempt for knowledge of opposing legal, moral and ethical principles and humanizing facts about the target populations Who controls the past controls the future; who controls the present controls the past – with overwhelming control of the present in the media, the arts and academia, the Democrats have significant control of the past to shape the future Four legs good! Two legs bad! – Democrats try to intimidate and overwhelm opponents like the pigs in Orwell’s Animal Farm who stomped their feet and chanted in unison – so much for birthers, deniers and tenthers!
Control of the Present The leftstream media, the propaganda arm of the so-called “Democrats,” savaged the rescue movement as “mob rule” and trumpeted the handful of murders of abortionists and their staffs, while the politically correct civil rights movement was unfailingly portrayed as heroic and the far more common murders of pro-life people, usually women resisting coercion to abort, was completely ignored. The right to life movement responded to the intimidation with foot-shuffling apologies and tried to distance itself from the rescuers while the daily violence of abortion continued. The movement has retreated into a defensive posture. Imagine for a moment how the media would react if any pro-life organization or prominent individual even once adopted a threatening slogan like “No Justice; No Peace.” The hypocrisy is palpable. The above does not begin to describe media bias, much less the revisionism taking place in academia or the ongoing culture conditioning practiced in the arts.
The “Democratic” Party The Home of Harm The Party of and by – but not for – Children. It is characterized by childishness, subscribing to the philosophy of childhood: “If I want it I should have it.” This is regardless of Constitutionality or any ethical principles. The Rule of Whim Party as opposed to a Rule of Law Party. The Peter Pan Party – Democrats depend on people who refuse to grow up. The Santa Claus Party – dispensing gifts to all regardless of Constitutionality, but buying the allegiance of many voting constituencies and securing Democrat political power. Federal spending has become little more than the biggest source of campaign funds for Democrats. Cash cow? An unlawful government program is the Democrats’ Power Pig. Like all pigs, it will eat nearly anything, including those intended to benefit from it, while the Democrats feast on it. The Robin Hood Party – stealing from “the rich” (that’s us) to give to the poor (their base). The Party of the Pimps – turning America into a nation of whores willing to sell their liberties – and their neighbors’ liberties – in exchange for unlawful government benefits, obtained and secured by voting for Democrats. If preventing any reduction of a government benefit is the primary consideration in determining your vote, then you have been bought. The Democrats have you right where they want you. They also provide political cover (pimping services) and taxpayer funding for the medical whores who have prostituted their skills to destroy human lives.
The Three Kinds of Democrats The Whores Faction – Those willing and sometimes desperate, thanks to Democrat policies, to sell their liberties and their neighbors’ liberties, formerly considered inalienable rights, for unlawful government benefits, obtained and secured by voting for Democrats. The Pimps Faction – The Party bosses, strategists and politicians who orchestrate the fears, dependencies, resentments and attitudes of entitlement of the Whores Faction. They also provide political cover and government funding for medi-whores. The Thieves Faction – Those who believe themselves to be smarter and holier than everyone else, including God, having committed the Theological Abortion such that they can dispense with the Constitution, the Ten Commandments and any other laws that may conflict with their Rule of Whim agenda for power and control. These genuinely believe that thrusting the sticky-fingered, heavy hand of government deeper into their neighbors’ pockets, when there is no Constitutional authority for their spending priorities, is living out the gospel when it is simply theft. All three factions are enablers of prenatal homicide All three factions have committed the Mental Abortion of the prenatal child such that its life does not trump other aspects of the Democrat agenda
Democrat Character-Destroying Principles and Messages Defeatism – you can’t succeed on your own, no matter what Victimhood – everyone hates you and is out to oppress you – you are perfectly innocent Envy thy neighbor – you deserve what they have but can only get it by government power Blame thy neighbor – they have done you dirty in countless ways – the system is rigged Corrupt thy neighbor – by promoting destructive ideas about freedom without morality so that wrecked lives become dependent on government assistance Soak thy neighbor – seek payback - they got everything they have by cheating and privilege Abort thy neighbor – destroy those who get in your way while it’s still possible before birth Someone Else is responsible for all your problems – you have done nothing wrong You can make Someone Else pay – the rest of the world owes you Overall Message: YOU CAN’T (Without Us) – the gospel of failure
Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right! - Henry Ford We live up or down to our expectations of ourselves What do the Democrats’ expectations say about their view of the American people?
Two Questions for African-American Voters: Do you think the Democrats’ soul-sapping messages of defeatism, discouragement, hopelessness and despair could have anything to do with your children’s comparatively poor performance in school or your young men’s anger, alienation and rebellion that leads to self-destructive behaviors and lands so many of them in prison or early graves? Do you think the Democrats will cease their destructive messaging – their torrents of psychological and spiritual poison -- so long as you keep rewarding them for it with your votes? A vote is a terrible thing to waste and an even more terrible thing to use to advance evil.
Questions for the core Democrat voters: Do you really believe that you can empower the Democrats’ abusive agenda of theft, governmental corruption, prenatal homicide and moral degradation with your vote, and that your fellow citizens will like and respect you for it? Do you really think this is in your best interest? Do you really think this is in your country’s best interest? Do you care? Do you really believe that the Democrats’ polluting of our moral, ethical, legal, political, social and cultural environments is good for our country or for you? Do you really think that empowering the Democrats’ evil agenda with your vote will have no bad consequences for your country or for yourself? Do you really believe that if there’s ever anything even remotely resembling a Judgment Day that it would be in your best interest to enter it having repeatedly used your right to vote to empower an evil agenda?
Conclusion Any vote for any Democrat is a vote to abuse one’s neighbors, deny any protection of law to the most innocent and helpless members of the human community, frustrate justice in the worst possible way, corrupt our system of government and degrade the moral character of the American people. The Party’s whole agenda is inherently harmful, unjust and violent. No one who votes for any Democrat can claim to be serious about achieving Dr. King’s Dream or the attainment of The Beloved Community.

This is my most significant attempt to persuade liberal Catholics that the Democrat approach violates moral standards.

The Essentials of AbortionismThe Essentials of Abortionism by Al Lemmo - a summary of the major principles of my Abortionism model which is key to understanding nearly every human degradation. This approach turns the philosophy justifying abortion into a destructive cult that has been at the heart of nearly every degradation humanity has ever suffered and demonstrates how these abuses are related. The terminology is key. The term "secular humanism" has been nearly useless if not counter-productive. In retrospect I would have added that the creed of Abortionism is "My will be done," which follows from the Theological Abortion. The "My will be done" crowd dominates the Democratic Party.
