How to get a self published book marketed

The Official Self-Published Book Marketing Plan - LiveHacked

'If Only . . . ' by Malcolm Smith

It was after the Sunday evening service and Ken, one of the elders of the church, was visiting with me in the local diner. He had been sharing with me the horrors of a division that had taken place in the church during the past months that had resulted in the pastor resigning and the congregation being scat­tered.He stared into his coffee cup, saying, 'If only Pastor John had seen it our way, things would be so different now! 'I looked at him over my orange juice. He was so sincere, not realizing his attitude was killing both himself and the church.

I said, 'If only the people had made a different decision over Pastor John's decision! The fact is, Ken, we do not deal with what might have been but with what is. God is not at work in some fantasy world of `if only,' but in the concrete world of what is. You are moaning to me of what might have been, which tells me you are not living where Christ is working! You have placed Yourself in the fantasy world of nowhere! 'We are all guilty of Ken's paralyzing mistake. We play God! Looking at the facts of life as they are, we assume an infinite knowledge and talk of what might have been, 'if only.' The fact is, no one knows what might have been. All we do know is that the infinitely good God will take the mistake and turn it for good.

The story of Joseph in the Old Testament is the classic example of the man who could have spiraled into the fantasy world of 'if only.' 'If only' his family had taken his dreams seriously. What might have been if Potiphar's wife had not tried to seduce him. 'If only' the servant of Pharaoh had remem­bered to tell the authorities about him when he was released. But it wasn't so, and in it all Joseph did not whine with self pity, 'If only things were different.' His attitude comes through clearly in Genesis 50:20:

You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to ac­complish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.  The simple fact of the matter is, the 'if only' does not exist and never will. The pulsating now with all its problems and hurts is the only reality. Christ does not live and express Himself in the wishful world of dreams, but in our present and actual history. Our mistakes and failures do not send Him away! He makes all our negatives to be the expression of His positive an­swer.

Proverbs describes the fool and sluggard as a man whose eyes are ever on the horizon, never looking at what is now. The wise man knows that what might have been isn't, and so embraces life as he immediately finds it.I am not talking merely from my studies, but from my experi­ence. I know what it is to sit on the edge of life's craters and inhale the sulphur of defeats, failure and sin. I have chastised myself knowing that I am responsible for my foolish decisions and wrong actions. Above the clamor of my thoughts I hear my­self saying, 'If only you had not done thus and so...' or, 'What might have been today if you had acted differently.' When I hear the dialogue beginning I want to enter in, to agree, and discuss with myself what might have been. Instead I take myself in hand: the fact is I did act as I did and said what I said. To live in the fantasy world of 'if only' will paralyze me in the real world of now.To retreat into the world of might-have-beens is to endanger and harm ourselves in many ways. First and foremost, it is to slander God's character. He knew from before the foundation of the world what we would do and say, and knowing it all He loved us. Now that my failure has been actualized in history, He does not stop loving me. To say 'if only' is to place ourselves with the pagans and their finite gods - gods that can be sur­prised by the activity of their adherents.

God knew what we would do, and fully forgives us through what Christ accomplished at the cross. Better than that, His love is an infinitely wise love that not only forgives but actually weaves our mistakes into His plan and turns them for good.Those who have left swamp lands of what might have been are the supremely happy ones of this world. They have seen their mistakes, admitted that they were wrong and turned from that way knowing all is forgiven through the cross. They now walk on through life, daring to believe that God in His wisdom now actually turns those mistakes to good.David committed adultery with Bathsheba and went on to arrange the murder of her husband, Uriah. We are stun­ned - surely it is time to close the story of David with a sob 'if only...,' what might have been the story of David if he had not sinned! We would record him as one of the sad might-have-­beens of history. But not God! He lives in and works with the ac­tual fact of our history; and beginning where David was, in his sin, He brought him to repentance and the writing of Psalms 51 and 32.It is most significant to me that in Matthew's genealogy of Jesus mention is made of the fact that Solomon's mother was Bathsheba. It is as if God is saying, 'See, I am not thwarted by the sins of my people: rather I use their mistakes, incorporating them into My plan. Through the worst David did, I turned it around and used it as a vehicle to bring My Son into the world.'

The gospel does not only come to us with the message of for­giveness, but also with the message of hope that God will turn the worst into the best. Theologians still discuss whether Paul should have taken his last trip to Jerusalem that resulted in his arrest. Certainly the Spirit warned him ahead of time what would happen, but he chose to go ahead. What might the Acts have been like if Paul had avoided Jerusalem? The fact is he didn't, but rather was arrested and taken a prisoner to Rome. Nowhere in Scripture are we introduced to the discussion of whether he was right or wrong. The fact is he made the choices he did, and God's wis­dom was at work in every one of them. In the two years of house arrest in Rome he wrote some of the greatest letters in the New Testament. We do not discover God in what might have been, but in the hard facts of what is. Over the years as a pastor, and even more so now that I speak to millions each day over radio, I hear the cry of thousands sob­bing out their own 'if only.'

The mother kneeling by her son dead in an auto accident: 'If only our last words had not been in anger. I will never forgive myself. 'A husband bowed beside the hospital bed of his wife: 'She was so good to me, if only I had told her how I loved her. Now it is forever too late. 'A young man in his twenties stared moodily at the floor of my study: 'If only I had studied while I was in college instead of fooling around. Now it is too late and I do not have a degree. 'A young woman sobbing hysterically: 'What a beautiful life we might have had, but he divorced me and now there is nothing.'The fact is that what happened is past -- you are who you are! To allow your mind to wander into the land of might-­have-been is to exit this life for a non-existent world. God is at work in the now-situation. In us as we are and where we are He works to glorify His name.The Christian lives in that faith, and glorifies God that He is at work in the disasters of life.My hobby is gardening by the organic method. I depend on a compost heap for my healthy soil. Everyday I take the waste from the kitchen and garden to the compost heap. The junk, filth, and garbage of the house and garden actually becomes the best and healthiest soil in my garden. So God's grace will take our failures, if we will give them to Him, and put them into His redemptive compost, actively working in them for good. As the months go by we realize that the areas of our life where we failed have become ever increasingly the expression of Christ our strength.To say and expect this is a massive step of faith, for legalism, ever challenges this ultimate stand of grace. We are surrounded by very sincere Pharisees who look in disdain as we wallow in our failures saying, 'If only you had acted differently....' Sadly they assure us that although we have been forgiven, our sin has forever doomed us to the permissive and secondary will of God. To this, faith in God's grace answers that the blood of Christ has cleansed us from all sin and God is now at work in the failure bringing to pass His marvelous purposes.

But do our failures exclude us from God's best? I think that that is a miswording of the question. We should ask, 'Can the infinitely perfect One have anything in His plans but the best?' There are many routes that lead to the consummation of His plan for us, but all of them are best, for we deal with the God who can only be best. Nowhere in Scripture is there mention of a permissive will of God.The world of might-have-been is a child of legalism. Implicit in the phrase is the condemnation that we could have done bet­ter, tried harder or disciplined ourselves more thoroughly. Now that we have failed to be what we might have been, all we are left with is despair. Legalistic religion shakes it head sadly as it walks away from us saying, 'If only you were a different kind of person; because you are as you are, you will have to settle for second best!'From our pit of misery we look at others who have not failed as we have and are convinced that God loves them better than us. 'If only' we had learned the secret of being like them!The grace of God does not only hold out forgiveness for our failures, but the strong hope that God is at work in the failure. God does not condone the sin, nor does He grind His plans for us to a halt whining, 'If only she had seen what I was getting at.' Knowing what we would do, His love wisdom has already plan­ned to redeem the mistake and make it part of His great plan for us.Let us suppose I am traveling from Seattle to New York. There is to be a plane change in Chicago, but due to weather con­ditions, I miss my New York connection. I am not doomed to spend the rest of my life in the Chicago airport! There are other flights to New York from Chicago. I do not sit in the departure lounge wringing my hands saying, 'If only I had not missed the flight.'

I missed meeting the person who was assigned to the seat next to me, and I missed the meal the first flight was to serve. But there is someone else to meet on flight no. 2, and they also serve a meal that is in no way inferior to the meal on flight no. 1. It also comes up the standard set by the airline.

When we fail, God does not condemn us to the departure lounge of His second best; life does not become a hopeless penance of 'if only....'The infinitely wise One has other ways of accomplishing His will and purpose in our lives. Our involvements will be different, and the circumstances too, but they will come up to the standard of the good and perfect wisdom.

But is there never a time when a man can miss the beautiful life that God had planned for him? Is it not possible for a man to sit out his life in ever increasing despair? Certainly! Even Jesus wept over Jerusalem:O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you will kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often 1 have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! (Lk. 13:34.)

In Galatians 2:21 Paul spoke of the possibility of frustrating the grace of God.God will never work in our lives against our will. We are not called God's robots, but His sons, members of His family who can choose whether or not to cooperate with Him. Paradoxically, however, He is the One who wills within us, creating in us a response of repentance and faith.Repentance is simply changing our mind about ourselves and our actions. We finally come to see it God's way. It means we ad­mit our wrong to God, and turn helplessly to Him. If we choose the path of sin, refusing to acknowledge it as sin, we can expect a compounding of despair until God finally reaches us through the very real mistakes of life. Then we acknowledge that we have sinned and thank Him for the forgiveness that is already ours.

Paul spoke scathingly to the idea that we can go on in sin in Romans 6:1-2:What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We died to sin: how can we live in it any longer?But repentance can never be divorced from faith. Faith responds to God's love and grace, daring to believe it, and we go on in confidence that God is working in the situation as it is, no matter what shipwreck we may seem to have made. If we did not believe that God is working in our failures, 'if only' would become a final resting place. We would paralyze ourselves in the departure lounge, never daring to embark on the ongoing pur­poses of God's grace. We would become locked into a deadening past instead of into the fantastic futures of grace.

Faith dares to forget what God has forgotten; faith rests in the good news that in our failures we are not terminal. God is not put off by our mistakes, but takes us wherever we are in life and brings us on to His perfect purposes.Paul is probably the greatest example of this kind of faith. He might have sat in Damascus condemning himself for the saints he had imprisoned and killed. Instead, his attitude is that what­ever wrong he had done, God is using it to demonstrate His mercy to sinners. As for himself, he chooses to forget the events and press on to God's bright future. He wrote in Philippians 3:13-14:But one thing 1 do: forgetting what is behind and straining to­ward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.The word 'forgetting' is a strong word in the original: it means to completely forget and put out of mind.Omar Khayam wrote, 'The stars are setting and the caravan starts for the dawn of nothingness.' The pagan can only look to the future with that kind of despair. The Christian looks at his defeats and mistakes and rests in God's forgiveness and the out­working of Christ who now lives within. He understands that God makes the dark holes of our life the foundation of His most beautiful buildings.Daniel, as a young man in Jerusalem, shows this daring faith. He was taken as a prisoner of war to Babylon. It looked like a massive victory for the demon gods of Babylon, but, instead, Daniel writes that the Lord delivered Jerusalem into the hands of the Babylonian king (Dan. 1:2). There is no 'if only this had not happened,' but instead an embracing of life as it really was, and a looking to the future as God continues to work out His Purposes.The way we view God at work in ourselves is the way we look at others. If our life is a tangled bog of 'if only's,' we can only offer condemnation to those who fail around us. If we have seen that God has forgiven and is now working in us, we are quick to assure others of forgiveness and join our faith with theirs, and acknowledge that fact our lives will overflow with power. From out of our innermost being - out of the heart, where we are one with Christ - will 'flow rivers of living water,' so that the desert will begin to turn into a fruitful field. And as our lives touch others, we will be used to transmit the love and life of God to them also.We are saints, not sinners, even though the outer flesh still commits sins. But let us 'see through' the outer flesh and acknowledge the fact, not the appearance. Let us guard our con­fession, watching what we say - for when we confess that we are saints instead of sinners we speak the truth, and so it will come about in visible experience.

I am sure it's the gun's fault. We need laws. More Laws. WAIT.... these boys were too young to legally possess a weapon. They broke every law known to man and beast. And they murdered. But I'm sure it's not the gangs, the broken culture or the lawlessness that a godless society has produced. That would be placing the blame right where it belongs, so instead of that, let's blame guns.

There is one other guilty party that is party to all this. It's a permission to kill wantonly that is implied by race hustlers. I lay a portion of the blame on Sharpton, Jackson and all the other people who have legitimized murder by the idea that they have a RIGHT, Do you think the murder of Trayvon had ANYTHING to do with this? I do.

I heard the 9-11 tape. She was very together and brave. Bless her. Lead On MS Tuff
We must do something about this. Money isn't the answer. We tried that and it isn't working.

WANT A FREE HOUSE? an explanation of Obamacare - Author unknown

I was in my neighborhood restaurant this morning and was seated behind a group of jubilant individuals celebrating the coming implementation of the health care bill. I could not finish my breakfast. This is what ensued: They were a diverse group of several races and both sexes. I heard a young man exclaim, "Isn't Obama like Jesus Christ? I mean, after all, he is healing the sick."

A young woman enthusiastically proclaimed, "Yeah, and he does it for free. I cannot believe anyone would think that a free market wouldn't work for health care."

Another said, "The stupid Republicans want us all to starve to death so they can inherit all of the power. Obama should be made a Saint for what he did for those of us less fortunate."

At this, I had more than enough. I arose from my seat, mustering all the restraint I could find, and approached their table. "Please excuse me; may I impose upon you for one moment?"

They smiled and welcomed me to the conversation. I stood at the end of their table, smiled as best I could and began an experiment.

"I would like to give one of you my house. It will cost you no money and I will pay all of the expenses and taxes for as long as you live there. Anyone interested?"

They looked at each other in astonishment. "Why would you do something like that?" asked a young man, "There isn't anything for free in this world." They began to laugh at me, as they did not realize this man had just made my point.

"I am serious, I will give you my house for free, no money whatsoever. Anyone interested?"

In unison, a resounding "Yeah" fills the room.
"Since there are too many of you, I will have to make a choice as to who receives this money-free bargain."

I noticed an elderly couple was paying attention to the spectacle unfolding before their eyes, the old man shaking his head in apparent disgust.

"I tell you what; I will give it to the one of you most willing to obey my rules."

Again, they looked at one another, an expression of bewilderment on their faces.

The perky young woman asked, "What are the rules?"

I smiled and said, "I don't know. I have not yet defined them. However, it is a free home that I offer you."

They giggled amongst themselves, the youngest of which said, "What an old coot. He must be crazy to give away his home. Go take your meds, old man."

I smiled and leaned into the table a bit further. "I am serious, this is a legitimate offer."

They gaped at me for a moment.

"I'll take it you old fool. Where are the keys?" boasted the youngest among them.

"Then I presume you accept ALL of my terms then?" I asked.

The elderly couple seemed amused and entertained as they watched from the privacy of their table. "Oh yeah! Where do I sign up?"

I took a napkin and wrote, "I give this man my home, without the burden of financial obligation, so long as he accepts and abides by the terms that I shall set forth upon consummation of this transaction."

I signed it and handed it to the young man who eagerly scratched out his signature.

"Where are the keys to my new house?" he asked in a mocking tone of voice.

All eyes were upon us as I stepped back from the table, pulling the keys from pocket and dangling them before the excited new homeowner.

Now that we have entered into this binding contract, witnessed by all of your
friends, I have decided upon the conditions you are obligated to adhere to from
this point forward. You may only live in the house for one hour a day. You will
not use anything inside of the home. You will obey me without question or
resistance. I expect complete loyalty and admiration for this gift I bestow upon
you. You will accept my commands and wishes with enthusiasm, no matter the
nature. Your morals and principles shall be as mine. You will vote as I do,
think as I do and do it with blind faith. These are my terms. Here are your
keys. I reached the keys forward and the young man looked at me dumbfounded.

"Are you out of your mind? Who would ever agree to those ridiculous terms?" the young man appeared irritated.

"You did when you signed this contract before reading it, understanding it and with the full knowledge that I would provide my conditions only after you committed to the agreement."

The elderly man chuckled as his wife tried to restrain him. I was looking at a now silenced and bewildered group of people.

"You can shove that stupid deal up your a** old man. I want no part of it!" exclaimed the now infuriated young man.

"You have committed to the contract, as witnessed by all of your friends. You cannot get out of the deal unless I agree to it. I do not intend to let you free now that I have you ensnared. I am the power you agreed to. I am the one you blindly and without thought chose to enslave yourself to. In short, I am your Master."

At this, the table of celebrating individuals became a unified group against the unfairness of the deal.

After a few moments of unrepeatable comments and slurs, I revealed my true intent.

"What I did to you is what this administration and congress did to you with the health care legislation. I easily suckered you in and then revealed the real cost of the bargain. Your folly was in the belief that you can have something you did not earn, and for that which you did not earn, you willingly allowed someone else to think for you. Your failure to research, study and inform yourself permitted reason to escape you. You have entered into a trap from which you cannot flee. Your only chance of freedom is if your new Master gives it to you. A freedom that is given can also be taken away. Therefore, it is not freedom at all."

With that, I tore up the napkin and placed it before the astonished young man. "This is the nature of your new health care legislation."

I turned away to leave these few in thought and contemplation -- and was surprised by applause.

The elderly gentleman, who was clearly entertained, shook my hand enthusiastically and said, "Thank you, Sir. These kids don't understand Liberty."

He refused to allow me to pay my bill as he said, "You earned this one. It is an honor to pick up the tab."

I shook his hand in thanks, leaving the restaurant somewhat humbled and sensing a glimmer of hope for my beloved country.

Waiting for the Right Time is death of vision

Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest. Just as you cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby growing in its mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the activity of God, who does all things. ~ Ecclesiastes 11:4-5 (NLT)

 "Quit making excuses, putting if off, complaining about it, dreaming about it, worrying about it, crying about it, believing you can't, wondering if you can, waiting until you're older, skinnier, richer, braver, or all around better. It's not over, hold on tight, you are not forgotten, make a plan, say a prayer, take the limits off. GO DEEPER & Surrender." ~ (Israel Houghton Presents Deeper Conference 2013)

Egyptian Democratic Coalition Leader Ahmad Said Responds to Obama comments regarding Egypt last week. ...Friday, 16 Aug 2013

This is worth reading and helps you understand how far off our administration really is. He calls out the President and Tells him to decide which side he is on.  Freedom or Islam?  Don't believe what you see on TV... it's media madness.

The National Salvation Front, a coalition of pro-democratic and secular parties in Egypt, set out its objections to remarks made by President Barack Obama Thursday on the escalating violence in Egypt.

Led by Ahmed Said of the Free Egyptians Party, the group issued the following letter:

"Like most Egyptians, we listened with attention to your statement on Egypt's latest developments. As representatives of the non-Islamic political forces in Egypt, we believe in the same fundamental values on which the U.S. was founded. Be we also have 7,000 years of civilization and history that give us a special identity that we are fighting to keep since the Muslim Brotherhood came to power.

"Let us first inform you about who the Muslim brothers are: They’re an unlawful organization operating outside the realm of Egyptian law, receiving foreign funding and laundering money in a flagrant breech of international law. Their aim is to rule the world through a so-called Islamic Caliphate as they believe in their absolute supremacy.

"They pretend they are God’s emissaries and they will not rest until they have forced the whole world into submission. For them, Egypt is the launching pad to achieve their fascist dream. Their international reach spans the globe and they command the hearts and minds of many unsuspecting politicians. They have used deceit, soft speeches, international funds and whenever required, violence, to impose their will.

"The rule of (deposed President Mohammed) Morsi showed how in less than a year they abused the people, reneged on their promises and overturned the rule of law by issuing constitutional diktats monopolizing the judiciary as well as the legislative arms of the state. This was enough to impeach any president in a democratic nation.

Unfortunately, Egyptians couldn’t refer to their Supreme Sourt as it was besieged by thugs for over 60 days back in November of 2012.

"So finally, Egyptians took to the streets and this century’s second Egyptian 'peaceful unarmed' revolution took place in June 2013 to recall the president and reject the rule of the Brotherhood. Egyptians deposed their president not because he was not inclusive, as you so kindly represented, but because he broke his constitutional oath and became another dictator reminiscent of the previous dictator this same great people of Egypt removed in January 2011. This was the will of the people that the West is now trying to bend pretending they are doing so in the name of democracy with no intention of interfering in Egyptian affairs!

"Now, I would like to address a few points in your address:
"Despite the perception, well-intentioned or ill-intentioned, history will tell of a Western media consistently portraying only one side — the Islamist's.

We have to let you know some facts and some truth.

"Since July 3, 2013, the day deposed President Morsi was ousted by popular demand of millions of Egyptians, the Western media and prominent emissaries from the U.S. and Europe have consistently described the sit-ins that paralyzed a large part of Cairo as 'peaceful demonstrations.' They chose to ignore what was happening across Egypt from torching churches and killing randomly and destroying private and public properties.

"Mr. President, peaceful demonstrators do not have the capacity to kill more than 50 police personnel in just a few hours.

"Peaceful demonstrators do not attack a police station with RPG and kill the police chief and his deputies, strip them of their clothes and drag their naked bodies down the street.
"Peaceful demonstrators do not threaten Christians with genocide as many of the Muslim Brotherhood declared in hate speeches from the sit-in stage.

Peaceful demonstrators do not raise the black flags of al-Qaida while marching with pictures of bin Laden and al Zawahri on their chests.

"While the Western media was focusing yesterday on the clearing of the sit-ins, more than 45 attacks were made on Christian installations across Egypt, resulting in the torching of 19 churches and cathedrals, some built in the 6th Century.

"The list goes on, but your intelligence reports will enlighten you, we are sure. The attached video here will also give you an idea.

"Mr. President, it is important that you see reality, especially that the great American people have themselves suffered from the darkness of Islamists and unfortunately thousands of great Americans died from their terror.

"The Muslim Brotherhood and their jihadist allies have never known and will never know peace. It might be useful to remind you that these same people had a three-week sit-in that started on the next dawn after election day and lasted almost two weeks to declare that they will burn Egypt if their candidate is not declared the winner.

"Mr. President, we are on the side of freedom, we are on the side of human rights. We are on the side of justice for all. We also hurt to see mothers mourn their children and children mourn their parents. Have you seen, Mr. President, the video clip of the Muslim Brotherhood supporter throwing 14-year-old children off the roof of a six-floor building? One mother died of sorrow when she saw the video clip of her son thrown off the building. She did not have time to mourn.

"Today Mr. President, you chose to consider one side of the picture and to punish the Egyptians by cancelling Operation Bright Star. Well Mr. President, Operation Bright Star means nothing to most Egyptians, but it is the misunderstanding and misleading of the American people that we care most about. Egyptians have always stood by the American people when attacked by terrorists because we are freedom lovers and individual liberty champions like the American people. The only difference is that we have always been deprived of these great principles and rights.

"Is it too much for Egyptians today to have the support of the American people during our own war on terror? How can the same group be named terrorists in the U.S.A. and peaceful demonstrators in Egypt?

"How can these be the ones the U.S.A. will never negotiate with while the U.S. government demands that Egyptians not only negotiate with them but also partner with them in the building of modern Egypt?

"Mr. President, the interest of peace in the region is served best by truly peace-loving people and democratic values.

"Finally, Mr. President, we hope that this letter will get your attention for, after all, we are now representing the majority. Our present government represents us, the secular, civil and liberal political forces.

We hope that you will find it of value to probe more and investigate more and ask more. When you do, we are ready to come to you in a small delegation and discuss and explain more. We are sure that you will realize that, after all, Egyptians are indeed a great people deserving a great future."


EGYPT is a type of what is actually going on in the USA. A civil war of ideas about what the country will become. Worldviews. Culture. We have the exact same thing here, except it is not "YET" a HOT civil war. Yet, like this civil war in Egypt, you cannot remain neutral. You cannot be half Islamic Fundamentalist and half Mubarak Support. There is no middle ground.  The middle ground is disappearing.

In this nation, we are engaged in a great civil war... not just of opinions, but ideals, culture, assumptions, worldview. One side or the other will win, but it is as you always see, the second revolution that matters. The first was the horrid Arab Spring which led to hell, the second is a violent reaction to that revolution, only twice as bloody.

The same is true in this country. The abuses and bully tactics of those in the drivers seat today will be met with a far more abusive and bullying reaction when the second revolution comes. People who thought this kind of ignoring of constitutional rule was OK, will find themselves set aside without a voice and the oppression will be greater.

Look at Egypt. It is an example of what will be. I appeal to those who lead today by fiat, when the screw turns, what hath you wrought upon us?

I pray it never becomes a HOT civil war, but the Muslim brotherhood pushed too far too fast and the reaction was swift and sure.

We are there in this country. This is a warning... don't take it lightly.

Less Government is Better. Here is a list of things we DON'T need anymore ...

    The following unconstitutional FEDERAL programs, agencies, departments, bureaus, commissions, administrations, offices, foundations, councils, services, institutions, boards, centers, divisions, grants, initiatives, registries, affairs, authorities etc, SHOULD ALL BE ABOLISHED.



    With these organizations gone, we could eliminate the federal income tax (for real economic stimulus). Then all these federal government fat cats would have to get real jobs like the rest of us - probably without the 10 holidays a year.
