Could 2012 be America's Last Presidential Election?

By Michael Savage

I've asked this question to a number of people and most of them respond as if I were crazy. They tell me that this is America, land of the free, and that there will always be elections. I tell them that we are no longer the land of the free and that if Obama gets re-elected in 2012 that this just may be America's last election.

In the past three years, the Obama administration has been very carefully crafting the nation for a political take over by his Marxist regime and this isn't just my opinion.

Popular radio talk show host (of the Savage Nation on the Talk Radio Network), Michael Savage, is the son of Russian immigrants and is very familiar with Soviet and European history. Savage
warned his listeners this week saying, "I have to tell you that if this man, God forbid, is the next president of the United States, we're going to be living in something along the lines of - people say - Europe. I don't believe it's going to be like Europe - I think it will be closer to Chavez's South American dictatorship.

"This is the most corrupt, incompetent, dangerous tyrannical administration in American history. It's not politics as usual. It's not just Democrats versus Republicans. Obama has a long history of being at odds with American values and with America itself and the core principles of this country. They don't want government-sponsored opinions. They only want government-sponsored 'Pravda.' That's exactly what the government-media complex tells you on a daily basis - nothing but the government-media
complex party line. 
Pay attention! Your freedom may be at stake!

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum told a small group of people in an Iowa coffee house that "Barack Obama is not incompetent, ladies and gentleman. He knows exactly what he's doing and why he's doing it. He sees America differently than you see America."

Obama has gone out of his way to divide this country in a way I haven't seen since the Great Depression when Franklin Roosevelt went around to divide his country. That's his hero. What makes America great in Obama's mind is that the government takes money from somebody and gives it to somebody else. No, that's what makes America, France.

"With his control over the Executive and Judicial branches of the
government, the stage is set for a complete takeover of the government. Think about it! Since taking office, instead of helping the economy, Obama has purposely escalated the economic crisis by plunging the country into unprecedented debt. He has a number of programs that are designed to go into effect in January 2013, just in time for his second term of office. The economic burden and increased taxes on everyone will be enough to cause the final economic collapse of the country. As soon as that happens, Obama
declares Martial Law and assumes dictatorial control of the nation.

The Department of Justice has already been subverting federal laws to strip us of a number of freedoms. The Supreme Court and many of the other federal courts have been seeded with socialistic liberal judges that will rule in Obama's favor on virtually anything, thus ending constitutional rule and law.

He's already changing the face of America's military. Allowing homosexuals to openly serve along with changing the retirement program is causing many conservative military leaders to resign commissions and leave the military.
Some Pentagon officials are also noting that an increase in the enlistment of radical Muslims into the US military where they get all the training they need on weapons and defense systems. We have no idea how many of them there are in the armed forces or in what positions they may hold.

Obama has been wielding executive powers this past year as if he were already a dictator. When Congress is not doing his bidding, he simply bypasses them and uses an executive order to accomplish it anyway. This has set the stage for his disbandment of Congress. He would not be the first world leader to take control of a nation and disband the legislative branch of government.

He has been effectively using the media to anesthetize the public to the dangers he poses. Like a patient being prepped for surgery, people are numb to the changes and won't have a clue what took place until they wake up in recovery and realize that free America has been removed and replaced with a regime that may parallel those of Stalin, Lenin, Mussolini, Hitler, Chavez and Castro.

For the sake of our children and grandchildren, I earnestly pray that we are spared from what seems a certain future and that Obama is overwhelmingly defeated in 2012. Otherwise, heaven help us.
My personal opinion, OBAMA MUST BE DEFEATED IN 2012!

Praying....Should Be Part of Our Daily Routine

A sweet lady in our adult Sunday school class gave me this website. It's a 31 day challenge to pray for your husband/wife daily. I must admit, I fail at this horribly! It not only helps him when I pray, but it also helps me. It gives me some needed personal time with my Heavenly Father. Oh how He loves that personal time with us!!!

So got check it out here! It will do you, your marriage and your relationship with God some good. And another really cool part, is that you even have an opportunity to ask someone to be your accountability partner and it's all FREE!

But it doesn't stop there! You can also be a Prayer Intercessor for them! They're also in the works right now for a 31 day challenge for our students! SO looking for to that!

Praying for each of you, your marriages and your relationships.

Blessings and Love,

Building Perseverance....

Our oldest has been gone for a month in a half. It's been a difficult transition to make but we're getting by. A piece of our puzzle is missing and we're missing her dearly. She lives about 20 minutes away but it seems as though it's 2,000. She's starting her life and I know God's got amazing plans for her! She's our grown baby! We're so proud of her and treasure the time we get to share with her!

Our second to the oldest misses her big sister dearly. God works in mysterious ways. The two oldest girls use to fight like cats and dogs about everything, until about four or five years ago. They share everything with each other now! An answer to our prayers!

Robert's been a great encouragement to me during this. I've struggled a great deal about letting go and letting God. Through prayer, scripture reading, and silence, God's opened my eyes to see the wonderful things He's doing and going to do in her life. He keeps telling me, "trust Me, Hollie". You see, I have huge trust issues, but that's for another post. It's just part of parenting and the first will be hard.

I'm so thankful and blessed that we have an amazing circle of family and friends to share this with! A Lord that is sweet, merciful, patient, graceful, understanding and loving; God is SO good!

Oh, how I miss giving her hugs and kisses whenever I feel like it!

Please continue to pray for her, her walk with God, her job, and the difficult choices ahead. The real world is hard, cold and misleading. But our God will show her the way as she lets her light shine through this dark world. Pray also for her grandparents, Rob's mother and father caring and providing for her. And last but not least each of our other three children, missing their big sister and of course her daddy and I.

Blessings and Love,

1 Corinthians 2:9
However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him."

It's truly a blessing to see people blessing others in this day in age! My heart was filled with joy....just imagine how our Lord Jesus Christ feels?! AMAZING!!!
