Still having the wrong conversation — Cut the spending!

 

More laws and more taxes —

that’ll solve the problem = NOT!

Think CUT SPENDING…

Earlier this year, I did a post on this topic and it seems to deserve a repeat because we are still not having the right conversation!  From February 2017 (here and below)

 

Color me livid.  We have lost before we even get started if we don’t correct this matter.  

Let me see if I can show you  how this game actually works.

Case 1:  I say lets cut taxes 20%  and you come back with how about 10% and we settle on 15%.  You think you won because we cut taxes a little.  Spending wasn’t reduced one iota in this scenario!  The revenue will have to be raised somehow by this generation or the next.

Amount saved 0%

Case 2:  What if the opening gambit had been let’s cut spending 20% and you come back with how about 10% and we settle on 15%.  In this scenario we both won and spending was actually reduced a little right here and now.

Amount saved 15%

Do you see the difference?  Please think about it.  Shift the conversation.  Talking about taxes is a trap and you loose no matter what the compromise position is.  Here’s a sample letter if it helps you get started:

Dear Representative,

I don’t want to hear another word about taxes.

Not one single solitary word.

Don’t even think about raising them – not on me and not on my neighbors either!

Don’t come to any of us asking for more money.  We are united on this matter.

You already have plenty.

You simply have not learned to prioritize correctly.

It is really pretty easy.

Do not spend more money than you have.  Do not ask me for more.

Let’s see how much government we can cut before anyone (not on the payroll actually misses any of it).

Thank you for getting our spending priorities in order and balancing our budget.  It is after all what we elected you to do.

Sincerely,

A Taxpayer

Nathan Dahm for Congress Campaign Kick-off in Broken Arrow – For Life and For Liberty!

 

Recently Senator Nathan Dahm kicked off his campaign for Congress in Broken Arrow.  Special thanks to Bryan Mayberry for capturing the event on video for us.  I believe Nathan is running for all the right reasons with a solid voting record to confirm that he is the right man for this job —  not only that he actually reads the bills!  He has my vote and my prayers and all that I can do to help.  

For Life and For Liberty,  Sandra Crosnoe

He is the right man for this job.

Signs in the Heavenlies – Solar Eclipse August 21 2017

solar eclipseIt is truly hard to imagine any message more appropriate right now.  I hope you will watch this video before the eclipse. I think it will add new perspective to what is occurring in the heavenlies.

Genesis 1:14. And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years

Luke 21:11. And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

Video below is with Mark Biltz from El Shaddai Ministries. It is all about God’s calendar with lots of scripture references and historical information.  [Update 9/9/17 This video has been deleted since the original post formerly/http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5r5-QxjHXW4]

The Case for Christ — one Man’s Journey to Find the Truth

The movie is compelling on so many levels. It was refreshing to see a journalist actually dig for a story and admit when he makes a mistake! The story is about Lee Strobel and his efforts to research and debunk the ‘myth’ of Christianity and faith. He is a writer and a seeker of truth from beginning to end.

 

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 29:13

If you are paying attention you can almost see the hound of heaven pounding on the door of his heart.  You can see the prayers of his wife materialize on the screen.  You can feel the agony of a man’s journey to find the truth even when it defies all he has built his life around.

Don’t miss this movie when it is in your area.  You and your entire family will enjoy and probably learn something too.  Did I mention there is a subplot that is as compelling as the main story.  It revolves around a court case and a media story that causes his conviction wrongfully.  I wonder how many of us would have had the courage to admit we were wrong and correct the matter?

Here is the website about the movie.

If you stay for the credits you will find out what happened to each of the main characters and even the children.  If you want to read the book, it is available on Amazon.  Click here for more info or to order online.

It’s Official! Senator Nathan Dahm is running for US Congress – District 1 in Oklahoma

 
Nathan Dahm Announces Run for Congress
May 5, 2017
Broken Arrow— Senator Nathan Dahm (R-Broken Arrow) today announced his candidacy for Oklahoma’s First Congressional District. Surrounded by over 100 supporters, Dahm said he has a passion to serve God by serving other people, and believes running for Congress is his next step in that service.
“Over the past few years, we’ve gone on many journeys together, and today, I’m asking you to join me on a new journey,” said Dahm. “I have fought tirelessly to defend our Constitutional rights and worked to implement long term vision to make our state better for the upcoming generations.”
Oklahoma’s First Congressional District will be vacated by current Congressman Jim Bridenstine in 2018. If elected to Congress, Dahm said he wants to focus on free market principles as well as openness, transparency, and accountability in government, which allow the opportunity for success.
“When government is limited, we thrive,” added Dahm. “I will do all I can to limit government, and require it to be more efficient, less wasteful, and less intrusive in people’s lives and in their wallets. I will continually fight to uphold the oath I have sworn to defend the Constitution, to protect our God-given rights, and to restore the balance of powers between the states and the federal government for limited government operating under the principles of our Republic. I look forward to serving the people of this district as a guardian to protect their rights from all those who would infringe on our rights.”
Dahm was elected to the Oklahoma State Senate in 2012 and makes his home in Broken Arrow.

[Editor’s Note:  It is a thrill to know that Nathan Dahm will run for this open Congressional seat in 2018!  The first time he ran for the seat in 2010, he was not very well known in the district.  That will not be the case this time, being known as the guy who beat Piers Morgan on his own show!  He is the only announced candidate to my knowledge with an in office voting record and Nathan Dahm’s voting record is sterling.  He is one of the top ranked conservatives by multiple sources for multiple years.  More than that he is loved by the people he represents because he works to protect and defend their rights.  We need to keep this congressional district in good hands.  Go Nathan!  Our prayers are with you Nathan – may His blessings continue to be upon you!/sc]
