Talon’s Point of the Day – Feb 20th, 2014

Talon’s point today is based on a series of related tweets from earlier today as follows:

” I’ve said it before and will again. Obama is NOT the problem…he’s the symptom.”

“The ignorance of soft tyranny has lead to the awareness of hard tyranny.  The GOP has helped make this happen.”

…. and to someone who thinks the solution is to simply vote GOP as if GOP wins have advanced liberty rather than the reality it has also attacked it….

“Sometimes you are better off with the tyrant you recognize rather than the one you don’t recognize.”

For several years now I’ve said that Obama may turn out to be the best thing that has happened to America both spiritually and politically in several generations. How can I such an astounding thing? Because before Obama, our once great nation was not only sliding into the spiritual and social abyss, we were doing so in our sleep. The rise of this developing tyrant has awakened the portion of America that is capable of consciousness. The other portion is of course suffering from a government sugar induced coma and won’t awake until they are dying from their coming real physical hunger.

Obama’s acts have driven the Godly, and many of the once Godly, to their Bibles and their knees. It has been the fulcrum that has wedged them out of their actual, and metaphorical, recliners and motivated them to reestablish or strengthen the faith they will need to stand through the coming storm. It has even awakened some who never gave God much thought but deep inside they knew spiritually there is no hope outside of the the Creator they previously disregarded. This storm will almost assuredly include open persecution of Christians, and to a lessor extent non conformist non-Christians who reject all intrusive government,  not just anecdotal cases of persecution but full scale legalized persecution both sanctioned by, and engaged in by all levels of government. I pray this is not true. But every sign tells me otherwise. Let me quickly say here that I am not opposed to government. Our founders were right that it is a necessary evil that is best limited but nevertheless needed. Yet it is most capable of acting honorably when it acts minimally.

Secondarily, as I have already eluded to, it has awakened non-Christians at a political level. People from all walks of life, even some “liberals” who now justifiably fear they will soon lose all remaining social liberties in exchange for a system that takes virtually all they have and returns to them over priced and poorly provided “services.” Services that do not compete with what the free market is capable of. They recall images of empty Soviet market shelves and instinctively know we are walking the same path that led to mass economic deprivation.

Neither of these two awakenings, in my opinion, would have occurred under under John McCain because it was not occurring under George W. Bush. I’m not attacking these men. I am however confidently contending that their big government views intentionally, or unintentionally, have, or would have in the case of McCain, allowed the exponential growth of a government that displaces God with itself. I further contend that had Romney been elected, we likely as a people would have returned to believing this threat was generally over. As such we would have gone back to sleep as the assault on our spiritual heritage and personal liberty would continue unabated, just slower. Not because of Romney per se, but because the structure that allows the assault would only have been tweaked, rather than reformed.

Talon’s Point of the Day – Feb 6th, 2014 “The Tyranny of Smidgeon”

The Tyranny of Smidgeon

Daddy, what’s a “Smidgeon?” – Son

It’s a preponderance of evidence treated as nothing by those with the power to get away with it. – Dad

This dear children is a perfect opportunity to crystallize the sometimes difficult to define, almost nebulous, concept of soft tyranny into something that can be easily discerned by all who care to see, save for those who look to the source of tyranny for their daily bread.

“When We, the People, grant OUR power to government and entrust in it that power with the expectation it will use it wisely and honorably, then discover this power is abused by being used against us, and more so selectively, then find those whom we entrusted this power denying and obfuscating their abuse of power, then insulting our intelligence that they have abused this power by comparing it to something miniscule as a “smidgeon” and as claimed fact only the coalescence of random errors, we are witnessing the soft tyranny that leads to hard tyranny. What we are witnessing is the Tyranny of Smidgeon.” – Talon

Talon’s Point of the Day – Feb 4th, 2014

I’ve said it before and will keep saying it as it’s a concept so difficult for people from all political and ideological bents to grasp…”When you empower government to enforce your beliefs on others, except for enforcing the protection of one’s liberties, you ultimately create and empower the very Beast (I capitalize with intent) that will later turn on and kill you for not submitting to it’s authority being granted by someone else. This includes Christian and atheist alike. That is why the only safe form of human government is that which protects individual liberty, including liberty that offends us but does not directly impact us. In so doing we protect the right of the religious to answer to God in accordance with his own conscience like the Prophet Daniel, without oppression, and the non-religious as well.  Other wise, what will eventually come, is a one world government of, by, and for a single man, where worship will be required of him and him alone.

This notion that fallen and sinful man can establish and enforce God’s laws was proven a fallacy by the nation of Israel. Even though God gave man the law he knew it would also only lead to death, thus His foretelling of our need of a Savior. Furthermore, despite claims by some Christians that it is the duty of believers to create a human government that enforces the principles of Christ is as foolish as thinking the Talmudic law was designed to save man rather than to reveal to man his need of a Savior. One cannot enforce the law of love on others. We do well to enforce it on our own deceitful hearts.

Now that does NOT mean we should NOT have laws based on God’s law. Indeed we should. If no one says “Do not murder”  how then can we provide consequence for murder. But when we say “you WILL give to your neighbor we seek to break the spiritual bond between God and the human heart, thus making God’s spirit of no import. This ironically is by definition a form of communism, theocratic or atheistic, satanic, and antichrist in nature.”

Response to Ted Cruz Fundraiser

While I really like what I’ve seen of Ted Cruz the reality is still that even he won’t seem to properly address Barack Obama’s brazen disregard for Constitutional limits to Executive power.

Today I received his latest fundraiser email. I responded….

Talon’s Point – Dec 18th, 2013

“A growing percentage of America’s shrinking middle class comes from government jobs. When the power to print fiat currency comes to an end so will most of the middle class, leaving an American Caste system with the vast majority among the poor. This my friends is why government is so hot and bothered over acquiring your firearms.” – Talon

Obamacare Now Has An Official Theme Song, Talon’s Point – Dec 3rd, 2013

“Now that some Democrats are admitting Obama lied but willing to make excuses for said lies, it has become time to establish an official Obamacare theme song. On that “note”, and since he will be stuck with the bill as a young person, I give you “Lie To Me” by the talented young Jonny Lang.” – Talon

 

Talon’s Point of the Day – Nov 30th, 2013

“Tyranny in the era of democracy begins with an open hand, but ends with a closed fist…..enjoy your government programs.” – Talon

Talon’s Point of the Day – Nov 29th, 2013

“America’s inner cities are an indictment of the failure of the Socialist experiment including already existing government healthcare programs. The insistence on subjugating the rest of America (through political conquest despite Constitutional guarantees  of personal liberty), under programs of control, like gun control, etc, that have existed for years in places like Detroit and Chicago, speaks directly to the true intent of those offering to ‘fundamentally change’ us. That intent is “transparent” to those willing to see” -  Talon
