Pastor Roger Anghis — Do We Really See What Is Happening?
When we look at what is going on in America today we have to ask the question, “Is anyone really paying attention?” We basically have a two party system that is scattered with 15 or so sub-parties. The only Parties of real influence are the Democrats and the Republicans. The question there is, is there really that much difference between the two? On the surface, they are miles apart but a closer examination shows that there really is not that much difference.
I review the bills that are introduced into Congress weekly. It takes anywhere from an hour to sometimes two and a half hours to review these bills. When I examine these laws that are introduced to Congress you will find that any law that involves raising taxes and implementing more and more regulations on businesses and people in general and bills that nibble away at our Constitutional rights you will find that they come from the Democrat Party 100% of the time. When we see bills that attempt to lower taxes, re-establish Constitution al rights, remove regulations they come from the Republican Party virtually 100% of the time.
All the bills that I have seen that demand that America’s access to its natural resources be restricted always come from the Democrats. They have bills in Congress right now that would permanently ban drilling for oil on the entire East Coast, the Gulf, Anwar and the entire West Coast.
All have been introduced by the Democrats. The Republicans have introduced bills that would open these areas for drilling. We are paying excessively for oil when we have the most known reserves in the world simply because we are importing over 70% of our oil from nations that hate us. Saudi Arabia has gas for around $1.00 a gallon. Why are we paying up to $4.00 a gallon? Why are we putting that kind of wealth in their hands instead of in the hands of Americans? It is only because the Democrats won’t allow us access to our own national resources.
When we look at the recent attack on our 2nd Amendment rights we see pretty much the same thing. Democrat Senator Diane Feinstein has a bill that will ban any gun with a clip. The State of New York implemented bills that severely restrict a person’s ability to protect themselves. Democrat Senator Chuck Shumer added an amendment to a bill that could make many gun owners felons and sets them up to have their guns confiscated just because they went on a business trip! Here is an excerpt from an article concerning Shumer’s amendment:
Shumer had kept the bogus “background check” bill under wraps, only putting forth a shell bill with no………….
