Oh dear! [whine] Bush's policy must be bad, because there are famous people who don't like it. [wring hands] Along with Ronald Reagon and Harry Truman, this president really believes that liberty is better than slavery. The Cold War Warriors all believed that it was better to be "Red and Dead" and that it was better to leave millions of people in bondage under the heel of brutal dictatorship than to risk war, which had become "unthinkable." [I guess it was "thinkable" in 70 a.d., when the bodies of the citizens of Jerusalem were thrown over the walls of the city, filling the ravines, rotting in the sun until rivers of putrifaction ran; when Roman soldiers disembowelled Jews who tried to escape in order to find gold coins that they believed the Jews had swallowed; or that war was "thinkable" when Joshua put to the sword every man, woman, boy, girl, child and baby in the conquest of Canaan--or it was "thinkable" when _______________ (fill in your own blank)]

By God's grace, I will live in church and state as a free man, a king and a priest before God so long as I shall live, or by the grace of God, I shall not live at all. I will fight for my liberty in Christ and in so fighting for my liberty in Christ, I will be fighting for every man's liberty. I can do this because Jesus Christ has fully satisfied for all my sins, leaving me in bondage to no devil and no man. Not even the dogs are allowed to bark against the people of the Lord. See Exodus 11:7 and Romans 8:33.

The Reformation produced men who understood the nature of liberty from the bondage of state and church. We have all benefitted from this.

2 Corinthians 8:9 "For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich." It is in these riches of Christ that the Christians stands free in Christ. It has been worth dying for, and it is worth dying for now. It is better to die for something than to live for nothing.

The Claremont Institute: Walter Mondale Loses It: "President George W. Bush seems to have driven his political opponents nuts. Howard Dean's reference to the 'most interesting theory' that President Bush might have had foreknowledge of the September 11, 2001 attack on the United States suggests that Dean has gone around the bend.

But Dean is in good company with many of his fellow Democrats. Former Vice President and Democratic elder statesman Walter Mondale has joined the crowd, although he distinguished himself with spectacularly bad timing."
