I'm constantly asked, "What makes you a Republican?" and "Why are you Conservative?" The answer is simple. It boils down to two specific things that I do. First, I vote the Bible. Secondly, I always ask "How much will that cost?" I've always done it and I always will. That is the make-up of this Conservative Republican woman.
No matter the political issue, I can find a Scripture to back up why I believe what I believe. Folks never believe that I can do it, but I can. It is relatively easy to do. I'll give you a few examples:
Abortion. Okay, that one is a no-brainer. "Thou shalt not kill." I've read it in several different versions versions (King James, Living Word, etc.), and no where does it put an age on killing. It says don't do it so we shouldn't do it. I know the argument; they aren't babies - just blobs that pop out as people in nine months. Jeremiah 1 talks about how God knew Jeremiah before he was "formed in the womb" and how Jeremiah had a purpose, a calling, the moment God knew about him. I also know that Acts 10:34 tells us that "God is no respecter of persons." That means we are all treated the same - even the same as Jeremiah. God knew Jeremiah before he was even a so-called "blob" and that means he knows those millions of babies murdered before they have rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I always vote for the candidate who is against legalized murdered, abortion. Just one reason I am a Conservative Republican woman. Just one reason I did not vote for Barrack Hussein Obama.
Taxes. Take a look at Matthew 25:14-30. It is the parable of the talents. A man gives three of his "employees" money (talents) to make him more money. The man given five talents works hard with his and made five more. The man given two talents also worked hard with his talents and doubled the money as well. The man who was given one talent freaked out and buried his, afraid to do anything with it. The employer took the one talent from him and gave it to the employee who had originally been given five. Jesus didn't think the man who worked hard with the five talents should be punished and have his talents taken away - AKA taxed. The man who didn't work, who did nothing with the money he was given, was "taxed" and it was given to the man who had the most as a reward. Jesus rewarded the man who worked hard and had the increase. I only vote for the candidate who also rewards hard work. Just another reason I am a Conservative Republican woman. Just another reason I did not vote for Barrack Hussein Obama.
Social services and welfare. Look at II Thessalonians 3:10, "This we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat." If you don't work, then you don't eat. It is that simple. Those of you who know me are asking how I can say that because I am disabled and do not work outside the home. It is well known that I don't have a job and I don't get a paycheck. Look at that Scripture again. It doesn't say anything about having a job or getting a paycheck. It says to "work." I do work. I take care of my home. I raise my daughter. I write as much as possible. I use Google AdSense on my blogs and website to make some money. I pray. I minister to people the best way I can. I help others with their writing and other endeavors that they have. I work and, therefore, I eat. If I can do it, so can others. I worked since I was 17 years old and I paid into Social Security. That money was put aside for me to use when I needed it. I need it now. I expect to get it back. None of this "give it away, give it away, give it away" now attitude around here. The Word of God doesn't want me sitting around with my hand out, expecting others to pay my way. Another reason I am a Conservative Republican woman. Another reason I didn't vote for Barrack Hussein Obama.
More on social services and welfare. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." The Golden Rule found in Matthew 7:12. I know that there are times when people need help and I am all for helping them. Within reason. There comes a time when people need to be told enough is enough. I don't want to be enabled. I don't want to be given things that I didn't earn. Who wants to go through their life with their hand stretched out, expecting a hand-out? People want to be able to do things for themselves, support themselves on their own. Another reason I am Conservative Republican woman. Another reason I didn't vote for Barrack Hussein Obama.
Israel. Take a look at the entire Bible as well as history. God gave that land to Israel and no is going to take it away from them. All sorts of people throughout the ages have tried and Israel still holds on to it. God makes sure they have that land. He made them a promise and He is standing by them. Everyone who did not stand by Israel was destroyed. Hitler is the obvious example here. No matter what mistakes Israel makes, God still stands by them and will not allow them to be destroyed. We should do the same. If we don't stand by Israel, our country will be destroyed just like the others who didn't stand by them. Another reason I am a Conservative Republican woman. Another reason I didn't vote for Barrack Hussein Obama.
As a Conservative Republican woman, I ask how much things will cost. I know that what money I have is a blessing from God and should not be wasted or spent on things that go against God's Word and His will. I keep a close eye on my personal finances as well as the tax money the government spends. I want to know where it is going and what it will be doing once it gets there. I don't want a penny of that money wasted. I know I have the right to know how my money is being spent. I have the right to vote people into office who will be good stewards of my tax money. Another reason I am a Conservative Republican woman. Another reason I did not vote for Barrack Hussein Obama.
That is why I am a Conservative Republican woman. It is basic and simple. I have specific standards and ideals that I believe in. I don't compromise them. I don't let things slide. I stand up for what I believe in and I don't back down simply because it may be unpopular or politically incorrect. Yep. Those are even more reasons I am a Conservative Republican woman.
