    In 2 Samuel 23 we read about three of David's top generals and the bloody battles they faced to defeat the enemies of God.

    The focus of this OPed is on an army Captain named, Shammah. The Philistines would come down into his valley at harvest time to trample and plunder, under the feet of their of horses, the fresh lentils needed to supply the Children of Israel with food materials for the coming years.

    But, the word explains how these bean-bandits charged into Shammam's valley and completely destroyed the lentils. The Word tells us that this had been going on for years without anyone lifting a sword to protect the beans. However, this year would be different from the others, because Shammah, a young warrior for the Israelite army had taken possession of the bean fields, and was bound-and-determined to put an end to this senseless destruction of the beans need for winter months. Armed only with a sword and the supernatural power of His Lord, God Jehovah, the beans would be saved. As we read tin his scripture, we are told that Shammah yelled out at his enemies: "Enough is enough".

    By know, many of you are thinking that this OPed should be in a Forum that deals with the Word of God. But, I say; "Nay!" This is a political issue and will be used to explain my concerns about the apologetic, name-calling, finger-pointing of Obama over the past few weeks!

    1. Just two weeks ago, the POTUSA proclaimed that Americans were arrogant, dismissive, and at times derisive. As an American who loves this country, I am abhorred that he would use such verb-age to describe me, as well as other hard working Americans;
    2. Last week the POTUSA proclaimed that America was not a Christian nation, just a nation made up of people with ideals;
    3. Than, this week, He has the nerve to approve an "Eye's Only" report by the DHS proclaiming that Americans who are against gay marriage, stem-cell research, abortion, the illegal Mexicans streaming [by the thousands] over our boarder, and own guns, can be considered to be "Extremist Right Radicals.


    Think about that last statement, my brothers and sisters. Obama, through the DHS, has demonized the Conservative right; elevating us over and above any Hamas and Hezbolah, or radical Muslim sleeper cells living amongst us on Main Street, USA. The DHS has, for all practical purposes labeled us as a group of people who need to be under a "watchful eye. The shift in government policy has made tax paying, hard working American's [you and I] as being much more dangerous than the terror cells living on main street USA, or those sneaking over the Mexican/American border.

    This once proud nation is quickly turning into a "big brother state" and if nothing else scares you about the Obama administration, this should....

    I say to Obama, Reid and Pelosi, "Enough-is-enough!" We want DC to listen to our concerns, not to brand us as Extreme Conservative/right wingers. You know that this group of Americans truly love and worship God, and above all things, we love this country, and we would die to keep it free from enemies: both foreign and domestic!

    Any revolution efforts on our behalf would be implemented in the polling booths when we rise up in mass to vote out-of-office those corrupt politicians who don't get it when it comes to killing babies, stem-cell research, tax and spending that is out of control, and gutting the budget of our military in a concetrated effort to weaken its ability to protect this nation, from both foreign and domestic.

    To be honest with you, Mr. President, I am ashamed of you and a host of Senate and Congressional leaders who have worked to put this nation at the doorstep of bankruptcy. I am ashamed of those elected leaders who have chipped away at the moral fabric of America. Way too many elected leaders are morally bankrupt, corrupt, and greedy. The time has come to remove these folks from their cushy high paying jobs with unheard of "perks" and special-interest bribes. What started on April 15th is the beginning of a grassroots campaign to get America back on track. The Tea Party crowd will only continue to grow with each attempt by DC to tighten their financial choke-hold on capitalism. This group is the face, the heart, and the spirit of what America once was, and will once again be.

    Keep an eye on the sky, the Conservatives who collectively make this a Christian nation have only just begun to fight. The good that once made America a special place to live in, knows what it takes to keep America on the straight and narrow road of right. We are fed up with a lot of things going on in this country. These are issues that have been going on for more than 20 years now, and we are fed up! We have officially declared, with each Tea Party, that "Enough is enough!" It is time to leave our beans alone!

    Shalom,

    Your primary error is stating that America is a Christian nation. I would agree that when asked most Americans would declare themselves to be Christians. But a closer inspection reveals that they have nothing of Christ in their lives. Besides, nations are not Christian, individuals are. Is the UK a Christian nation? What about France or Italy. Are you counting Catholics as Christian or not?

    You're Welcome

    Thank you Pastor. I was simply getting feelings off my heart. A heart that has been made heavy with a lot of things that have been directed at good, honest, hard working Americans of all parrty standings.

    Great post Paul. You have expressed the sentiments of many American patriots.

    One wonders why it is acceptable to profile Americans who are against gay marriage, stem-cell research, abortion, the illegal Mexicans streaming [by the thousands] over our boarder, and own guns and yet the profiling of young Muslims or radical leftists such as the Chicago friends of Obama is considered an assault on their civil rights.

    One also wonders why some in the leftist media expressed sympathy for the pirates who held an American hostage until killed by Navy Seals. Wonder if those three, who fortunately will remain anonymous, will become the targets of the radical left.

    Thank You All.....

    It is great to post something that rings true with the hearts of some many. Thanks for your support. Feel free to mail this out to all your friends and family/ I would appreciate having as many people as possible know what the common American citizen thinks and feels when it comes to the chop-shop-job being done on americans by the Obama administration.

    It's time we all stood up and said, "Enough is enough!":wavey:

    I respect your right to vent your heavy heart but I can assure you that report was not directed at any " good, honest, hard working Americans of all parrty standings"....

    They are not speaking about those who oppose abortion or even hold peaceful protest against abortion. They are referring to one who would bomb the clinics or murder the doctors. Those who would kill the mother and the fetus in the name of saving the fetus.

    Anti Government is okay in this nation but you must agree Timothy McVeigh took it too far.

    Perhaps the report could have been worded better but I think we all know the target intended by the words. There are those in our society on the left and right and take things beyond peaceful protest or loyal opposition which makes them people we should keep an eye on.

    I can almost guarantee that the Admin won't use it like your niceness wants. They want to get rid of any form of opposition and the evil that is obama will do it anyway he can. Of course the power behind him is Satan

    It seems the opposition has made Obama into a bigger monster than he is demonstrating in life. He has reached out to Europe and now South America to include our enemies. He invited the Republican's to his football party and even held a dinner in honor of his opponent. He has said and demonstrated so far to be one who invites opposition in an attempt to find common ground on which to agree.

    He appears further from being powered by Satan than those who assert reason's we should fear him. Bearing false witness and fear are tools I would more see the devil using...

    Oh, yesiree...as long as we make nice, it's not important to stand for anything.

    Your use of the word "the opposition" is quite telling.
    • You find less common ground with those who oppose the killing of children than those who would allow the killings to go one with little or no restrictions.
    • You find less common ground with those who recognize that heterosexual marriage is the fabric of the American family and society than you do one who defines "family" most any way. (you would think Obama would look at illegitimacy statistics in the Black community and learn something...but no).
    • You find little common ground with those who have actually read and comprehended the 10th Amendment to the US Constitution. Instead, you find common ground with those who would rework government so as to make it unrecognizable to the Founding Fathers.
    • You refer to "the opposition" and show disdain for them...much like many in our new cabinet show disdain for veterans, opponents of abortion and immigration, and the like.
    • You refer to "the opposition," yet have the gall to suggest it is a good thing that a tax cheat is our Treasury Secretary (I believe your ridiculous reasoning is that "since he can't understand how to pay his taxes, he'll be an advocate for reforming the tax code;" that's kind of like hiring a rapist so that the sex laws can be overhauled.
    • You pooh-pooh "the opposition" as being brainless myrmidons...yet you completely ignore the pandering and groveling our president is doing to murderous thugs who have trampled the rights of their citizenry...yet those here who speak for freedom are "the opposition." You probably have a warmer place in your heart for Hugo Chavez than for conservative American leaders.
    Oh yes, LeBuick, you have a keenly defined sense of "the opposition." And all the while, our new President continues to erode the liberties that President Bush was dumb enough to allow. But, you refuse to admit or criticize the wrongheaded moves by Obama.

    Unfortunately, one day you'll look up and ask, "has anyone seen my freedom? I'm sure I laid it down somewhere around here..."

    Sad, it is.

    I simply stating a fact and a Biblically supported one as well. Where in the Bible is any nation given this kind of title? Israel is of course God's chosen people, They are a special case. What supports the claim that America is the "new special case?" Are there any other "Christian nations?" If so, who are they? If not, just who or what gives us the right to make such a statement?

    Hey JC: "Enough is Enough!"

    I explained in a previous post how this nation is special and you choose to ignore it. It is very interesting how you always dodge the truth. You are quite a card.
