EVERYTHING the politicians touch turns to dust. Worse, to cyanide-laced swine-flu. (Can you do that?) I'm worried that if I start, my head will just explode, and that will be bad.
HR 3200. <-- Actual text. A big, 1017-page pdf.
HSLDA's brief summary.
Mat Staver, of the Freedom Foundation and Liberty Counsel's page-by-page summary follows. Tell me Hitler wouldn't have been rubbing his hands in glee, if he'd had this law and our current technology? What an easier job he would've had...
I like how the National ID Card is in here, along with immediate electronic access to any and all of our bank accounts. That'll be so handy.
I ALSO like the subtitle, if you call it that. Right on the front page, Emphasis mine: "To provide affordable, quality health care for all Americans and reduce the growth in health care spending, and for other purposes."
"Other purposes?" *Cue maniacal laughing* Other, unnamed purposes...?
The bold might actually be added in by Rick Joyner. This list is from an article he wrote and someone sent me via an email link. The article is religious/prophetic in nature, but even if that's not your bent, don't overlook this very real threat!
I'm trying to keep my head from exploding. Really. Is this our America? Is this the "change" Obama promised? Part of it certainly. A diabolical part.
PRAY. This is it. Will this generation of American Christians face judgment having not "done all to stand" against this? In the email I got, my friend wrote,
"...let us begin to earnestly pray for God to intervene in America. I believe that the intervention of God primary includes the awakening of the church to the wisdom of God, to its divine mandate, the emboldening of the church to lift its voice not in fear or in political reaction but with the Spirit of the Lord empowering it to speak and declare the truth in righteousness.
The Kingdom of God never ceases to advance. Even when the enemy seems to be gaining the upper hand, His tactics will always backfire on him. I believe that the church is about to awaken in America. Let us earnestly pray together for the Lord to lift a standard of righteousness against the flood of darkness."
I couldn't agree more.
