I’m running out of time to post all the material I want to post before the general election. Therefore, I’m going to post more than one a day when I have opportunity. Today, I’m posting three. Only the first will have all the material I normally include in a post. Check out all three. Let’s be able to say on November 3rd that we have begun the process of Taking the Nation Back.

“President Obama censors ‘Creator’ from Declaration again
For the third time in just over one month, President Obama has refused to include any mention of the ‘Creator’ in his recitation of the Declaration of Independence.
The Founders believed that ‘all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.’
Repeatedly now the president has simply said Americans are endowed with certain rights, but persistently refuses to acknowledge with the Founders that these rights are a gift from God.
He stripped God from our founding document on September 15 (video here)
when speaking to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. He did it again on September 23 at a fundraiser in New York City. And he did it yet a third time on Monday night at in Rockville, Md. when speaking to Democratic Senate candidate donors.
This can no longer by any stretch of the imagination be considered unintentional or accidental. President Obama is deliberately stripping our Christian heritage from us right before our very eyes.
If our rights do not come to us from God, they come to us from government. And what government gives, government can take away. President Obama has taken a long stride on the path that leads to tyranny and ruin.
If you would like to contact President Obama and urge him to put the Creator back where he belongs—in the Declaration of Independence and in the public life of America—the phone number to the White House is 202 (456) 1111.
Don’t forget that we have an election of historic importance coming up in just two weeks.

“Sanctity of Human Life
I support and will defend life from conception to natural end.”
We must secure the border now! District 8 contains three border counties. The trafficking and violence in these areas are having a very negative impact on the district. We must address this issue in order to reduce the threat to our domestic security and to protect our sovereignty. I have earned endorsements from Maricopa Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever and the Hon. Duncan Hunter, because of my consistent position on border security.
I am a strong advocate for completing the double-layer border fence along the US-Mexico border. I do not support public benefits for those who are here illegally. I strongly support employer sanctions and Arizona’s new law, SB 1070.
I will fight to dramatically increase the number of Border Patrol agents. Until they can be hired, I support deploying 10,000 troops in an active enforcement mode among the border. The troops would be drawn down as the fence is completed and more Border Patrol agents finish training.
It is premature to discuss any kind of guest worker program until the border is fully secured but I can clearly state that I will never support amnesty for those who have illegally entered the United States. They should return to their country of citizenship.”
(Of course, Obama administration has sued the State of Arizona because of its new law to remove the presence of illegal immigrants within the State. No current Congressional Democrat should be reelected in Arizona—my addition.)
The Second Amendment of the Constitution is not just about hunting. It is about the right of a free people to defend themselves which is why I am a strong supporter of the right of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms.”
“The campaign committee has also cut ads in a few places because the Democrat is ahead, such as Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona.”
Let’s prove the Democratic campaign committee WRONG!!! Gabrielle Giffords supports the MURDER of unborn babies although I could not find it on her website. However, she trumpets that she supported nationalized healthcare which provides for financing the MURDER of unborn babies and, as shown above, she supported other MURDER aspects throughout her years in Congress.
