Psalm 27

I mentioned the week following the RNC, that there was a request made by Sarah Palin to many Christian Believers, I noticed it on and thought I would repost. Don't forget to pray the Psalm 27, and TRUST GOD not man (or woman):
From the NIV

Psalm 27

Of David.

1 The LORD is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When evil men advance against me
to devour my flesh, [a]
when my enemies and my foes attack me,
they will stumble and fall.

3 Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then will I be confident.

4 One thing I ask of the LORD,
this is what I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD
and to seek him in his temple.

5 For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle
and set me high upon a rock.

6 Then my head will be exalted
above the enemies who surround me;
at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make music to the LORD.

7 Hear my voice when I call, O LORD;
be merciful to me and answer me.

8 My heart says of you, "Seek his [b] face!"
Your face, LORD, I will seek.

9 Do not hide your face from me,
do not turn your servant away in anger;
you have been my helper.
Do not reject me or forsake me,
O God my Savior.

10 Though my father and mother forsake me,
the LORD will receive me.

11 Teach me your way, O LORD;
lead me in a straight path
because of my oppressors.

12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
for false witnesses rise up against me,
breathing out violence.

13 I am still confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the LORD
in the land of the living.

14 Wait for the LORD;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the LORD.

WHEN does your vote count?

So, I have been working for a board of elections, I started as an elections inspector and because of the need for bi-partisan representation, I was promoted rather quickly (or asked) to work in the office.
I have learned a few things that may be interesting: poll votes are never called in, or reported to anyone..votes are counted and certified in where does the media get those numbers??? well they COULD check with county web sites that show preliminary numbers that are not actual or verified until they are reported to the State Boards, or they COULD list them as "popular votes" and speculate who is winning.... so the media basically selects the president since the total votes are inconclusive for weeks after they are cast (also because absentee ballots, though post marked by Nov 3, may not come in for up to 3 weeks later due to high volumes of ballots that come internationally)
HERE IS MY POINT...NONE of these votes can determine who the electoral college voters actually certify and currently, they have to vote together (despite the fact that some states have literally not voted for the candidate that is certified by their EVoters)... I did learn that there are measures being reviewed that can allow EV's to be split so as to reflect the actual votes cast in their states.

Oh and one final thing, there are no states that are allowed to count votes until Nov 4 which, means that all of the "results" are fiction, this explains the importance of candidates getting the MSM in their pocket and also explains why a supreme court would have to rule on a conflict over who "wins" in a presidential election (essentially they were ruling against the MSM) This seems to also explain the strong reliance most Americans feel upon the MSM, and why it is critical that the MSM's handling of this election receive major attention, sooner than later. Because many on this blog, appear to have links to media sources, I invite your comments or suggestions.

THE GOOD NEWS: Knowledge IS a form of power and the task here is to govern ourselves accordingly, knowing the rules of the game, the context of the story, etc., empower those truly committed to good works!

Fact is Stranger than Fiction

So this a long video, but explains Obama's position on many important issues to voters:

What is A Good Way to Spend Campaign Funds?

I had a chat with a Board of Elections Commissioner about whether candidates MUST use all of the funds contributed to their campaign. I learned there are several options, particularly if/when a candidate shows a considerable lead or if there are economic uncertainties during the campaigning period:

1. A candidate may leave the funds in the account for use during a re-election (if they win a first term)
2. A candidate may give the funds back to the contributors (since they are not tax deductible)
3. A candidate may share the funds (or spread the wealth of the funds around) with other candidates in their party to show support and interest in supporting smaller elections or similar platforms.

The question of the day is: What would you do with more millions per day to spend on a campaign (or small town) that receives, less than subtle MSM endorsements DURING a time of economic uncertainty? Would you boast to have a working knowledge of the many progressive/socialist ways to equitably sniff out and squelch (or redistribute wastes?)

Good Works are easy to spot, we all know them when we see them, the problem is we are slowly being steered away from what in plain english is a good work thanks to the media bias and less than honest candidates who refuse to simply disclose past relationships or issues that may bite them in the end. (Good Work truth serum awards go to NY Gov. Paterson for admitting his affair before anyone else and to Senator John Edwards for telling the truth and of course Marion Jones get honorable mention for serving the time for the crimes FOR the sake of her children who are not helped by lies covered up).

Yes the truth costs more but it pays more but we have been lied to so much by politicians, and pundits and MSM reporters, that the party lines are smeared purple and party platforms are compromised (or sacrificed) in exchange for performance space. (million dollar per minute performance spaces) It is clear to see why the masses, spoon fed this garbage, have teeth too soft to chew on the tough but total picture: our political party systems are different sides of the same pair of power pants!

My take on what MSM can do is simple: own up to it, admit it, quit it and let readers (retrain themselves to) read issues, weigh more than ONE SIDE and form opinions for themselves. (oh and wear lipstick and a pocketless dress!)

Read My Lipstick Network

Found this site through a great site that I follow, and I encourage you to support both blogs as well as Team Sarah, the conference call was amazing this past Saturday, it is empowering to hear prominent women speak up and out in favor of what we know to be priceless treasures inherited by all Americans, protected by a select few who have the grace to stand despite the recurrent failings of others.

Finally, here is also an alternative for those viewers who watch MSM all day...feed on this:

Good Work just Works

Speaking of Good Works, today I need to share a bit about Promises, Persuasion and Performance..(the sermon link is: ) The scripture is Ephesians 2:10 For we are God's [own] handiwork (His workmanship), [a]recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]
This week is about focusing on those good works which God planned beforehand for us to walk/live the good life! Selah

Palin Pride: Why good people will win no matter what

I encourage you to read this:

Palin Pride: Why good people will win no matter what

My comments are:
Thank you so much for this post, it is refreshing and exactly the type of response we should have to nay sayers, bad news, mean spirited attacks, daily bumps in the road, etc. You win when you choose to focus on all that is good with this country and when you use what is good about forums such as these blogs, to share the many reasons that remind us to seek and strive for genuine happiness. Many of us see qualities in the Palin family that are encouraging because in some cases, they represent a needed twist on the lemons to lemonade philosophy. In my book, it has left a lasting impression on this culture for the better, and reminds me that I can choose to live life fully and unapologetically happy!
