Conservatism: Not for the Faint of Heart

“The deal looks bad and smells worse.” –Michelle Malkin

What is the deal with what’s really going on in America? Just what is happening to Americans? Where is this country headed? No one knows for certain. Even those whom we ascribe as being in control of this great land are uncertain. Only God knows for sure. Everything occurs according to His timing, yet He works through the affairs of men to bring things to pass.

“No one can comprehend what goes on under the sun. Despite all his efforts to search it out, man cannot discover its meaning. Even if a wise man claims he knows, he cannot really comprehend it.” (Ecclesiastes 8:17- NIV)

The deal that all Americans currently receive is not good, not good at all. The financial future of our children and grandchildren is already prematurely saddled with a debt that they cannot possibly repay. This is the “deal” that our government made on its own accord-a deal that we were not participants in, yet, incredibly, are expected to tolerate.

Did you sign up for this deal? I ask, because the deal that has been shoved at us is way more than just a by-product of the previous administration, as is always blamed. This quandary is monumental, and we still have no idea just how bad the deal really is. It looks bad; it smells worse. To begin with, each newborn taking his or her first breath of life is basically being handed a receipt of debt, courtesy of our government’s erroneously titled stimulus package. This scenario might appear whimsical, but it’s the truth of the matter—and it’s a shame.

Going forward, that individual must now live a life under a guise of liberty and freedom, both of which have been assaulted by our “leaders” without any consideration of future generations. How can a person truly be free if the nation that he or she is a citizen of has bankrolled his or her financial future?

Americans are in Possession of the Only Deal that Matters

How can the government ignore the only deal that matters in America: The United States Constitution? America is in possession of the most powerful legal document in our nation’s history—if not the world—and our so-called leaders seek to undermine, and, ultimately, abolish it in favor of it becoming a “living document.” If they succeed, the Constitution of the United States will continually “evolve”, and be a servant to the whims of a depraved administration, and society, in order to legalize behaviors and lifestyles that are adverse to the general public. It may not appear to be that way now, but if allowed a little wiggle room, Obama and his cohorts will wholly pervert the blessed land that American patriots fought and died for.

The Constitution is set forth to protect life, and care for our children. Our leaders are mandated to abide by this rule, not intentionally destroy our children’s financial future:

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” (Emphasis mine)

“…And our posterity…” Posterity means future generations. Our children’s future is to be protected by their leaders, not exploited for their selfish, egotistical, and totalitarian appetites.

You know American history. You know the “deal” the Framers made in order to ensure tranquility, and liberty: they instituted the Constitution! This was the best deal ever sanctioned by heroic patriots in establishing a country. It has stood the test of time and served to guide America, and its citizens, for over two centuries. Now, radical opponents of all that is decent and good threaten to destabilize its supreme status because they don’t like it. They feel that it needs to “evolve,” and, “change” with the times in order to accommodate all types of people, wants, and needs. Who are they to assume that the supreme law of the land should be threatened for a handful of far-Left liberals, whose leader is an insolent appeaser?


This is most certainly not the deal that the Framers envisioned. They would roll over in their graves to witness what has become of the, “land of the free and the home of the brave.” Where is freedom headed in America? It’s certainly at a pivotal stage in its fight for longevity and survival. There exist brave men and women who are not backing down from this fight, and I wholeheartedly applaud them, and stand with them. In fact, I am one of them.

God’s View of the Deal

Nonetheless, here we stand today, witnessing a resurgence of, not just another New Deal, but also, all the dismal trimmings of a socialist, communist, State. We have surpassed welfare “reform,” and social programs; we are plunging headlong into the worst deal in American history. In addition to the deal that is currently looming, there is an assortment of components that haven’t been brought to the forefront yet. Trust me, they will surface in due time and compound the crises.

At this stage, your power as a conservative woman continues to exist in the fact that you stand with truth, honor, and virtue, foundationally, and principally in God’s Word. His Word is a defense, and His “deal,” unchangeable. Although we might have to endure some hardships, and experience some pain in this fight, if you stand as He empowers you to, you will prevail! Here is a wonderful promise to us:

“No weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall confute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD and their vindication from me, declares the LORD." (Isaiah 54:16, 17)

In fact, God doesn’t operate with “deals”; He operates in covenants. Deals can be broken—and often intentionally are—while a covenant is everlasting, and binding. In your stance against the raw deal brokered on the backs of hardworking Americans, and their families, bear in mind what God said…

“I will not violate my covenant or alter the word that went forth from my lips.” (Psalm 89:34)

…And His promise to those who keep His covenant:

“All the paths of the LORD are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.” (Psalm 25:10)

Liberals definitely don’t understand where real power emanates from, for if they did, they would realize how utterly in vain their fight is. Their eyes are blinded to the truth. No matter how many unscrupulous laws are passed, and lives tampered with, there is still a Power higher than all of theirs combined:

“For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared, a great king over all the earth.” (Psalm 47:2)

“He who comes from above is above all. He who is of the earth belongs to the earth and speaks in an earthly way. He who comes from heaven is above all.” (John 3:31)

Honestly, liberals don’t stand a chance against the Almighty. They might win some battles, but, in the long run, they will not win the war! God will not be mocked:

“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.” Galatians 6:7,8

I choose God’s view of the deal.
