That breeds true men?

Everybody knows that Vice President Joe Biden is a pathetic halfwit. But sometimes it takes a pathetic halfwit to tell the truth. In an interview with CBS anchorwoman Katie Couric old Joe let this slip:
COURIC: Is our government broken, sir?
BIDEN: No, Katie. The country’s in bad shape, yes, but the federal government hasn’t been this hale and hearty since I became a senator in ’73.
Can it be said any plainer than that?
The "health" of the federal government and the rest of the nation are inversely proportional. If the government is doing well the rest of us are bound to be doing poorly. If, on the other hand, the nation's people are doing well the government must be suffering loss.
In 2008 we elected people who think that a "hale and hearty" government at the cost of a ruined and impoverished nation is a fine bargain.
This November we have the opportunity to begin returning power to those who would reverse that.

In an article posted on American Thinker black conservative Christian Lloyd Marcus addresses The Black Church's Commitment to Obama.
Dear Black Church,
What I am about to say will probably anger you. As a black Christian, I have struggled with whether or not to address this sensitive topic. I only ask that you give my statements prayerful consideration.
Ninety-six percent of black voters, many of whom are Christians, cast their votes for Barack Obama. I question: Did your desire to see a black man in the White House trump your commitment to Christ and Christian values and principles? While I believe many white Christians also made a racist decision by voting for Obama solely because he is black, I am taking this occasion to address my fellow black Christians.
Now wait a minute. I know the hair is rising on the back of your neck. Don't go crazy on me. Please hear me out.
My family and most of my black friends are Christians striving to live lives which honor Christ. And yet, there is a huge disconnect between their Christianity and their irrational, blind, and near-idol-worship of Obama.
Will the truth about Obama make a difference? For some, I think not. For those of you who value your commitment to Christ more than your loyalty to skin color, here are a few facts.
Obama supports abortion. He also supports the vile murderous practice of partial birth abortion. So as not to offend his pro-choice supporters while an Illinois state senator, Obama voted three times against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, which would protect babies who survive abortions. According to Illinois state law at that time, live aborted babies were issued birth and death certificates and left out to die in soiled utility rooms. Obama's compassionate compromise was to suggest hospitals create a "Comfort Room" for aborted babies to die in.
Over 50% of black pregnancies end in abortion (Blackgenocide.org). The liberal mainstream media (CNN, MSNBC, BET, etc.) and the Democrats relentlessly promote the myth that "white conservative Republicans" are burning the midnight oil thinking of ways to suppress black America. Isn't it ironic that not a white Republican's, but our black Democrat president's abortion policy contributes greatly to black genocide?
Let's talk about gay marriage. Yep, Obama is sympathetic to it. Obama opposed the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as a legal union between one man and one woman. Obama said he would support civil unions between gay and lesbian couples. He also supports individual states deciding if marriage between gay and lesbian couples should be legalized.
I would also like to tackle the whole "entitlement" thing -- folks believing they have a right to reap the benefits of someone else's labor. Obama is diligently fulfilling his promise to Joe the Plumber to "spread the wealth around." The Bible says that if a man does not work, he should not eat (II Thessalonians 3:6-12).
Yes, the Bible does highly regard giving/charity. But it does not support government confiscating wealth for redistribution in the name of "social justice." That is not what Jesus would do. As a matter of fact, Jesus said, "The poor you will have with you always." Why? Because it is impossible to regulate outcomes in life. Obama skillfully plays the class envy card, getting those who have less to hate those who have more. Then they will gleefully support him brutally taxing the rich SOBs. Obama is exploiting the human tendency to sinfully covet the possessions of others.
Obama also shamelessly plays the race card to get his way -- not directly out of his mouth, but through his minions. The liberal mainstream media and the Democrats are promoting the lie that the millions of whites who voted for Obama and have since become tea-partiers because they reject his big government agenda are suddenly racist. This is an evil and divisive control tactic.
And here is a major kick in the face to Christians. During his presidential campaign, Obama told the world America is not a Christian nation. Now, as president, Obama canceled the 21st annual "National Day of Prayer" ceremony at the White House, which was started by President Truman in 1952. Obama stated his reason as "not wanting to offend anyone."
Now here's the kicker. A National Day of Prayer for the Muslim religion was held on Capitol Hill, beside the White House, September 25, 2009. As many as 50,000 Muslims attended.
So apparently, Team Obama has no problem offending Christians, but he is extremely sensitive to and even honors Muslims.
My fellow black Christians, these are only a few easy-to-research examples of Obama/Democrat agenda policies which do not line up with Christianity. For those of you who cannot handle the truth, I will keep you in my prayers. It is not my place to judge you. I am simply the messenger. But then, we all know what traditionally happens to messengers. God bless.
- Lloyd Marcus, (black) Unhyphenated American
In the comments a number of people thank Mr. Marcus for raising issues that have been in desperate need of being raised.
I agree that all this needs to be said, but there is an even bigger question than why black Christians would support Obama and that is:
Why would anyone claiming to be a Christian support the Democrat party?
The Democrats are the party of partial birth abortion, gay "marriage" and removing any trace of the God of the Old and New Testaments from the public square while bending over backwards to accommodate Islam.
The Democrat party supports a monstrous perversion of the concept of biblical charity which takes charitable giving out of the hands of individuals (where the Bible places it) and invests it into government which uses it in the most toxic way possible - to destroy the traditional family and foster the soul-destroying dependency which has worked so much devastation in the black community.
The Democrats and their allies in the teachers unions have turned the nation's public schools (especially those in predominantly black areas) into godless indoctrination factories which graduate generation after generation of young people who cannot find their home state on a map or do simple arithmetic and who are unfit for any existence other than as drones in a government subsidized ant hill.
Democrats claim to be for black people but in reality they keep blacks down by keeping them ignorant and dependent. They claim to be in support of labor unions but they refuse to close the borders to tens of millions of Mexican illegal immigrants who undercut the wages of American workers, when they don't steal their jobs outright. Democrats claim to support women and gays yet cannot find it in themselves to condemn fundamentalist Islam which practices the hanging or stoning of gays and women who commit "crimes" like leaving the home unescorted by a male relative, showing their face uncovered in public or bringing shame on their families by allowing themselves to be raped. Not to mention the practice of female genital mutilation. Democrats claim to support the middle class but they want to raise energy prices so high that the average middle class family will have to drastically reduce their standard of living.
In everything from banning DDT - and therefore condemning tens of millions to death from malaria and millions more to sickness and death from a host of other insect-born diseases - to opposition to genetically modified foods - which needlessly condemns millions of children to blindness every year - every one of the liberal Democrat's "good intentions" seem to have real world consequences which only cause suffering and death.
If the very Pit of Hell spat up a philosophy which would have the thin surface appearance of righteousness but in reality contain everything evil and malignant how could it differ in any meaningful way from what the "liberal progressivism" championed by the modern Democrat party?
