What do marriage, crime and abortion have in common? Actually, quite a lot if you are seeking the reasons behind our polarized American society.
For quite a number of years the demographers have known how our society is highly polarized when it comes to presidential elections. Red counties tend to believe in responsibility, religion and families. They are typically suburban or rural and usually vote for conservative candidates. Blue counties tend to believe in rights, and may have problems with crime and poverty. They typically have higher population densities and vote for liberal candidates.
This same situation again played out in the recent 2016 Clinton/Trump Presidential election. While there are exceptions, the red counties voting conservative and the blue counties voting liberal tended to fall into the same traditional patterns. What the demographers and researchers want to know is why? Why is it that on one side of the county line you have more income equality but the other side of the county line has rich and poor? Why is it that one side of the county line has more people going to church regularly while the other side of the county line has more crime? Why is it that one side of the county line supports responsibilities and families while the other side of the country line supports rights and abortion? Continue reading →
“A Conundrum is like a parachute. If you need one, and don’t have one, you’ll probably never need one again.”
The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.
Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America :
America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of the population is subsidized.
Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims.
They think they are victims -yet their representatives run the government.
Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer.
The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
They have things that people in other countries only dream about – yet they want America to be more like those other countries
We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.
Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. But we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money! What’s interesting is the first group “worked for” their money, but the second did not!
Why were we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our Army, Navy, Air Force & Coast Guard to a level lower than before WWII, but we were not stopping any of the payments or benefits to illegal’s.
There is an increasing concern among some demographers and researchers that conservatives, Christians and pro-life supporters may be winning a battle but losing the war. Many do not understand the real issues and reasons behind how social problems, actions and decisions are interconnected.
We live in interesting times. People in the past based decisions on traditions and the practices of previous generations. Today, we are lucky to have the advantage of decades of research into social problems as well as computer-generated statistics. In many cases this data is not only endorsing many of the old traditions but also giving us the reasons behind those decisions. If you give me a few minutes of your time I can walk you through the basics.
Our Polarized Society
While overly simplistic, it is not difficult to split our society into two groups based on a simple question. When faced with an action or decision that could impact others we have two alternatives. We can do what is best for other people and society or we can do what we want regardless of whom we hurt. One side is conservative while the other side is liberal. One side believes in responsibilities while the other side believes in rights. And, ultimately, and to a large extent, one side tends to match with red states and the other side tends to match with blue states. Continue reading →

ProLifeCorner – 5-15-2017
The following link will take you to the article on Lifenews.com where you will read that President Trump is keeping his campaign promises to defund Planned Parenthood. We all must realize nothing can be done in a day, but he’s sure giving it a try.
ProLifeCorner- Freeport Illinois- Below is a letter posted in the Freeport Journal Standard on April 7, 2017. It is refreshing to see a letter that shows appreciation of the many hardworking men in society.

Before you cast your vote on April 4, please take time to read the following article:

ProLifeCorner- Intro By Chris Munda- By now we should all be aware that much evil is trying to destroy our faith, our family, and our world. Can we do anything to regain our souls and our countries? See:A Healing for America: Sweet Hour of Prayer
The following article, from the excellent Lifenews.com is a prime example of the vile direction in which we are headed. While this event took place in Argentina, we are headed in that same direction when we allow Planned Parenthood to sell the body parts of the babies they have aborted. And Planned Parenthood receives close to a billion of our tax dollars! That is $100,000,000,000 of your tax dollars. And for what? To murder babies in the womb and sell their body parts for profit!
All vestiges of moral values are disappearing as quickly as snow in the tropics. Any respect for faith, the unborn, the elderly, the military and any other ideal we used to hold dear is being mocked and destroyed openly.
ProLifeCorner- Frank J. Munda- America needs a healing and she needs it now. I believe the next four years in America will be the most critical in all the history of this great nation. The forces of darkness and the forces of light are gathering. We who profess a belief in Christ are very much aware that the battle for the minds and souls of America is real, and it is a battle led on by principalities. And for those nonbelievers, the scoffers, the naysayers, please take a look at the signs of the times. Those on the left are believers as well, however they are invoking their god’s, by calling upon witches, all sorts of occult practices, curses, and calling upon the Prince of darkness himself, Satan and his minions. This in itself is proof that heaven and hell are real. Otherwise why would those on the left, who profess to be atheist, invoke Satan and the occult? Like it or not, believe it or not, this battle is real and it is unfolding before our very eyes.
The answer to all of our problems is prayer; our only hope is prayer. Without prayer this nation will be enslaved to sin and there will be no hope. Continue reading →
