Polls prove to be inaccurate

It looks like the margin between Obama and McCain is about five points. That’s a lot closer than a lot of pollsters had it. In fact, I see only two polls that had it as a five point race yesterday, Diageo/Hotline and Battleground. Check RealClearPolitics for the final polling.

If McCain had won, I was going to decry the way that the media uses false poll information to influence public opinion. Since Obama won, it is a moot point. It probably sounds like sour grapes to say that several polls that had him 9 to 11 points ahead (and they have the audacity to claim they have a 3 point margin of error).

It’s impossible to know how much the polls influence people’s decisions, but the fact that McCain was within five percent is much different than the scenario the media painted

The Catch-22 of this election is that even if McCain had won, he’d have an impossible economic situation. He’d have to cut spending and taxes and then the Dem majority in congress would be crying bloody murder for two years. Also, having a moderate Republican just postpones true reform. If you look at mid-term elections usually the president’s party suffers loss of seats. If McCain was president 2010 would have given the Democrats a super-majority in the Senate and more seats in the House. So much for a conservative Supreme Court with 60 plus seat Senate for the Democrats.

Barack Obama’s Catch 22 is that he has promised to balance the budget, cut taxes on 95 percent of wage earners, introduce universal healthcare and a trillion dollar package of social programs. Most would agree that this is a tall order. If he fails, will it be possible to blame the Republicans?

If the Democrats go too far to the left and the economy continues to scuffle along, we’ll likely see something similar to to 1994 and the Gingrich revolution against Clinton. I don’t think the USA will become a left wing country so quickly. But we will see.

There were going to be positives and negatives about either outcome for the Republicans, so I am not depressed today. The failure of Bush’s big government spending policies opens a door for a mini-revolution within the Republican party in the next two years. Candidates who never would have had a chance can now emerge.

I was never a big McCain fan. He actually impressed me as I got to hear him more. I thought he would have been better on spending than Bush who I did not vote for (I voted for Howard Phillips and Mike Peroutka three times) and of course I was excited about Sarah Palin. I was thinking down the road what could happen with her if something happened to McCain.

It’s amazing that Palin is so similar to me — about the same age, baptized as a Catholic, converted to Christ in an Assemblies of God Church, now a member fo an independent evangelical church and with a Christian spolitical philosophy and worldview. I’ve never heard a candidate speak so clearly about what matters. It’s amazing that someone like this would have been picked.

If McCain would have won, I had an article ready, “The Swiftboating of Sarah Palin.” The idea from the Republicans and goes back to Lee Atwater’s strategy against Mike Dukakis.

Since Dukakis was a fiscal conservative, they attacked him as “a card carrying member of the ACLU and a tax and spend liberal.” It wasn’t true, but it worked.

Then John Kerry was a war hero and also somewhat fiscally conservative, so they destroyed him with the Swiftboat ads trying to show that he was a traitor — not true, but many were willing to believe it.

The Democrats caught on to this because they saw that Sarah Palin was a bright, fresh, articulate rising star who was energizing the Republican base with her ability to speak directly to people like me. The media cynics were able to somehow portray her as inarticulate, dumb and anything else they could concoct. If McCain won though there was a real danger that she would have quickly become a Dan Quayle with the left waging a propaganda war to prove to the world that she is a stupid bimbo. Now at least she has a chance to show what she can do in Alaska with energy and fiscal responsibility.The irony is that if she remained the Governor of Alaska, the media would have continued to refer to her as “America’s most popular and successful new governor.”

As a vice presidential candidate Palin’s negatives rose, but she remained hugely popular with the conservative base. I was at one rally with 70,000 people in The Villages, Florida. That’s unheard of for a VP candidate. It will be interesting to see where she will go from here.

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

The United States of America 2.0: The Great Reset (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 40 pages of dynamite!

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification

In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.

By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

The Abortion Matrix: Defeating Child Sacrifice and the Culture of Death (DVD)

Download the free Study Guide!

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?

This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.

Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.

The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?

As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).

Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

Ten parts, over three hours of instruction!
