The Fate of our Nation: An Open email


Hi to my family, friends, and readers:

Me & Newt

As a pastor, I’ve always been careful about combining politics with my calling to ministry. I continue that care to this day by not speaking about my personal preferences for political office when I proclaim or teach the Word in that official role. I simply ask people to vote God’s values and to vote for the best person who champions His values.

However, right now I am not writing to you as a “pastor” or “elder” but as a friend or brother and as a citizen and voter.

As a teacher of history, I believe that the coming Presidential election is the most important since 1860. I do not exaggerate when I say that it is probably the most important vote of my lifetime and yours–perhaps in our nation’s history.

  • Our nation is divided
  • We are broke (financially) and deeply in debt to hostile nations.
  • The national security of the United States has never been more compromised.
  • We have no strategic foreign policy.
  • We are under attack from the outside and inside
  • Our southern border is overrun. And radical Islam is staging in Venezuela and Margarita Island.
  • Nuclear weapons are in the hands of three renegade powers who will not hesitate to use them. This President is all hat and no cowboy.
  • We are poised to abandon our close ally, Israel.

The current President has run fast and loose in the greatest office in the world–that of President of the United States. He is in way over his head. He may know about community-action in Chicago and what the liberal elites at Columbia believe about how wonderful the U.S. would be as a socialist nation, but a socialist nation was never God’s intent for our great Union of states.

We are a light on a hill. We are a beacon of freedom and liberty, where each person can aspire to be what God has placed in his/her heart or mind to be and do. That requires freedom. No one is free as long as he or she is in debt. No one is free as long as he or she is required to have health insurance of the government’s choosing. No one is free as long as political correctness trumps reason and common sense. No one is free when our national security is continually undermined by the Commander-in-Chief who is sworn to protect and defend from all enemies foreign AND domestic. Who will protect us from HIM? And no one is free when their nation’s courts legislate values opposed to God’s values.

Since 9/11 the ancient Ottoman Empire has reared its head and come back to life. Islam sees the opportunity under this President to spread across the world. He has done NOTHING to stop it. As a matter of fact, he has helped by granting access to secret FBI research facilities in the form of a tour to demonstrate our techniques and facilities. He invites known Islamic collaborators to access the white house. He has been credited with several military victories but these were not his doing, he simply took credit for them. And he continually undermines Israel’s friendship and sovereignty.

Islam is a greater threat than ever, yet it’s all talk when it comes to Obama’s  dealings with Iran and Syria. Now he has again capitulated to an enemy by agreeing to abandon an airbase in Pakistan. Pakistan is evicting the U.S. from the drone base responsible for gathering intelligence on our enemies. We know that he will not hesitate to abandon Israel to her enemies should Israel choose a preemptive, unilateral strike.

I’m not only voting for Newt Gingrich, but I’m assisting in his campaign and have given a small contribution. I urge you to follow my example. Why?

Barack Hussein Obama is a politician. Newt Gingrich is a Statesman. What’s the difference?

James Freeman Clarke said, “A politician thinks about the next election; a Statesman thinks about the next generation.

If we do not elect a leader of the caliber of Newt Gingrich, Obama will win again. If he wins, no one will have to worry about the next generation. There won’t be one! Our nation is at a crossroad. Most people sense it. They can feel something huge pending, waiting to happen.

If you review his videos on “My Best of Newt” post and recall his contributions as former Speaker of the House back in the 90’s, you’ll see why Newt is absolutely the man for this season of our great history. Other candidates are sincere and would likely do well with help. However, like Churchill in the 1930’s and 40’s, Newt sees the issues with crystal clarity and knows how to navigate in Washington to get the job done.

Since any President can only keep his word to the nation if he has the Congress and Senate WITH him, this is the one election where we really need the candidate to be a Washington insider who can work with the House and Senate on both sides of the aisle to get the job done. And Newt’s already shown us that he can keep a “Contract with America.”

I highly recommend the following two sites to get you up-to-speed on Newt’s qualifications and “21st Century Contract with America”:

1. My “Best of Newt” YouTube playlist

2. Newt’s official site Newt.org

And if you want to help, you can visit the New Hampshire website (http://www.newthampshire.com/) and offices in Manchester. I’ll be there from time to time as a volunteer. Drop in. Or better yet, sign on as a volunteer.

Love to talk to you anytime about why Newt should be the next President of the United States.

Make sure you’re registered to vote and PLEASE don’t skip the NH primary on Jan. 10, 2012 (for those of you who are NH residents). Make sure you’re registered to vote.

Thanks for reading this rather lengthy email. But I know you care about our nation too.

Blessings,
David

  1. First let me begin by telling you that after reading this it is nearly impossible to distance your political views from your ministry. Anyone who reads this will think of your political stances in regards to your ministry. A pastor is a 24/7 job and there is no way to write something “not as a pastor.” Secondly our nation has never been completely united unfortunately. There are too many people who think their view is much more important than that of someone else. Additionally with regards to being broke, it is true that we are broke, but if you pay attention to the financial sector you would notice that it is slowly recovering. Never in our history has a financial problem been solved quickly (though Americans seem to never learn from this history.) I would not say that we’re about to abandon Israel. Obama is not doing more or less than any president before him has done for Israel. It is important to be diplomatic in that part of the world, unless of course you’re saying that you’d like to start World War III. You are also becoming a polarizing figure when you talk about Obama and his “liberal elites”. It also becomes apparent to me that you do not have a true understanding of socialism. The Marxist creation of socialism actually refutes government intervention and calls for people to be equal on a personal professional level. Furthermore, even if socialism stood for more government intervention the American Socialist Party has been less than happy with Obama. You also talk about freedom and that we can’t be free when we have government sponsored health insurance. Your portrayal of this shows you have a Fox News understand of this. My sister lives in Mass. where she is required to have health insurance and she is not any less free than us. In fact she is probably more free because she doesn’t have to worry about how she will pay for health care. Also if you read the bill you would see that there are more than 200 Republican amendments that make it not “Obamacare.” Lastly you call Obama a politician and Newt a statesman. This appears to be completely unfounded to me since Newt is nearly a lifelong politician. While I am personally not a huge fan of Obama I don’t see what Newt has done to be called a statesman. From what I have seen Newt has a plan for Newt and not for America.
