His border policy is bandwagoneering. Not even going into that. All over the world we're trying to open the borders up. And what... he wants to build a big fence?
I dont think he has a real issue with the border, other then the fact that it is still wide open... meaning that our government is doing all this stuff to "protect" us from terrorism.. and our borders are WIDE OPEN.. I mean that doesnt make much sense.. that would be like installing a home security system, and then leaving your house wide open anyways...
I think that was more of his point with that argument..
Chipping is passive. Simple as that.
I think it's damned convenient actually. I hate carrying around big lumps of money.
What does my bank account have to do with it anyway? If "the government" wants my money now, there's nothing I can do about it either. They just freeze up my account.
A chip has nothing to do with that.
I dont know if your a very religious person or not.. but when I hear of the "national id act" which takes effect in may 2008 here in the states.. and when i hear talk of putting chips with all of our info on them into our bodies.. I mean.. yeah I can see the arguments for chipping ourselves.. I could have chips in my kids, so if god forbid somebody takes one of them.. well the chip will lead me right to them.. or, getting chipped for the convience it would bring.. just like you stated above... I see all the good arguments for the chip.. yet, when I think about it.. the one thing that comes to my mind is this :
Revelation 13:16 said:
And He causeth all, both small and great, rich or poor, free and bond, to recieve a mark in their right hand, or in their forehead, and that no man might buy or sell save he had the mark.
I dont know guys. I have turned a corner in my life recently. I have been looking for some answers, and I have been finding alot of them.. but those answers are leading to more and more questions... One thing I have turned to is religion. Im not going to preach to anyone.. thats not my place, but I have been looking around, and I have been asking myself questions.. It just seems like, you know, if what was being introduced in the freedom to facism movie towards the end was true.. I mean if there is any possibilty that maybe, just maybe there is a shred of truth to it... then who really could be behind it all???
I am confident in my beliefs right now. I have turned my life over to Christ, I have become born again if you will.. I am not here to preach about it, Im not here to do that.. Im just here throwing some stuff out that I am trying to figure out for myself, and I just want to hear your honest opinions about it.
Thanks for listening, and offering your opinions.
Thanks Seti for your insights.
I know alot of you that know me are probably wondering, since I have been absent from the boards for awhile, just what has happend here with me.. and hopefully this weekend I can get the time to fill those who want to know in.
