My epiphany on Rand Paul
By A.J. Castellitto

"I don't trust President Obama with our records."



If there's one thing that I've learned since President Obama has been in office it's this: Do Not Trust The Government!!!

Think about it. Most of the problems we are facing are government driven. Decisions are made with little regard for the long term effects. I hate to say this but it feels as if our chickens have come home to roost.

Wars are waged, the unborn sacrificed, borders hijacked, and it all keeps getting worse. Empty promises and bold lies rule our day.

Our Rule of Law continues to be manipulated and circumvented at every turn and we continue to pay the price. This brings me to Rand Paul...


I'm starting to finally realize that he's on to something. He talks passionately about balanced budgets and privacy rights; but most importantly he seeks to take on the very thing that poses the largest threat to the American people.

How much unsustainable debt will we incur? How long will we continue to wage unconstitutional wars?

How much liberty are we prepared to forego so that those we've helped encourage to take arms against us can be thwarted?

What happens when those who do not act in our own best interest win the hearts and minds of a seduced majority and ultimately become our master? Where does that leave us?

We've given up so much power and control that we made victims of ourselves. How can we be faithful to God when we've handed so much control over to man?

As for all the talk regarding the separation of church and state, the fact of the matter is God is not inferior to government, but rather, outside and above it. The state has no authority over the church and especially not over the Judeo-Christian God of our founders. The state can't subject the church to taxes. It falls outside their authority to do so. The state answers to We the People and we answer to GOD!

Tragically, we've neglected God for so long and we reap what we sow. There are no earthly saviors. We've lost control of our own government. Our Constitution has been severely perverted.

I'm tired of our government granting and removing 'rights' that fall entirely outside of their finite jurisdiction. Government cannot give consent nor decree that innocent lives are disposable, or that the definition of husband and wife can be manipulated. It can't spend money we don't have without our consent and then make us and our children responsible for the reckless consequences.

We don't need a nanny or a big brother, we need order! Order only comes when our personal rights and natural liberties (as bestowed by our Creator) are protected from infringement.

Unfortunately, policy is being determined by global interests, the military industrial complex, corporate investments, and powerful lobbyists. Big government is a monster that continues to expand and grow. As it continues to do so, the average American is getting consumed by it. The countdown to self-implosion has begun.

Paul better keep on talking. I know I, for one, will be listening...
