Mitt Romney has serious psychological problems that can be catagorized as narcissistic psychosis: from bullying to demanding, anything to win what he wants regardless of whom is hurt or what is destroyed. The Republican Party has devolved into a party of lies, deceits, fraud and denying basic labor rights. It is a return to the nineteenth century with robber barons and wealthy crooks funded by the Koch Brothers.
Gannett publisher pushed through an endorsement by the Des Moines, Iowa, Register that followed the decree for all other papers: to support Mitt Romney despite his being the least qualified candidate ever for the US presidency. Lies, subtefuge and distortions were thinly veiled in the endorsement as exposed here.
Freud argued to study that which is of this world, and work to improve the conditions of all people. Jung argued that ideas have substance and that religion is a reality and thus can be studied. The Republican Party and Mitt Romney use Jungian psychology in justifying CEOs telling employees how to vote. Obama and the Democrats want individual choice, secret ballot and progress for people. The Roman Catholic Church and Knights of Columbus spends more than 20% of its budget to defeat human and civil rights to move the USA closer to a theocracy.
Freedom of speech comes with responsibility of what is said and whether or not it is true. Because of a biased movie (Innocence of Muslims), the world of Islam broke into flames, fanned by a Florida preacher and a former movie producer--neither gifted with languages nor knowledge of texts. Religion has always been the catalyst for wars, and religious leaders the butchers from the beginning of time to this day.
Barbara Johnson was denied communion at her 85-year-old mother's funeral by Marcel Guarnizao who claimed that "the church" and his bible prohibits communion to a lesbian. The bible does not mention the word lesbian nor homosexual (the latter does not appear in any bible before 1957), and even his diocese said the predatory pastor was wrong--but ignores the issue that Guarnizao is foreign agent who wants to overthrow democracy to establish a theocracy in the USA and used the Johnson tragedy as a vehicle to align cofollowers who will risk a civil war.
God is praised even when evil happens. Christians believe that God gave his son (John 3:16) to save the mortal race, but no mention is made of the fate of earth. What did God truly give the world? The answer will surprise many.
As the economic well-being of any people plunges, starvation and unemployment skyrockets, many will seek out demigods and dictators or turn to religion for temporary euphora. Some will argue that bad times are the sign of End Times and an Apocalypse is near. Is the Apocalypse fact or fiction? Here is the judgment of history, texts, and scholars.
The Koch Brothers have bought the New Hampshire legislature, sending their Oregon/Washington representatives Dan and Carol McGuire to New Hampshire where the McGuires bought their seats in the House of Representatives to rid the state of minimum wage, utility protection laws, and civil rights.
The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is politically aligned with the Tea Party and on the payroll of big business. The goal of the NAR is to conquer the world for a Jesus who will return to rule as a soldier, basing their existence on Matthew 10:34 and End Times theology that sprung from the Fuller School of Theology. Key players are Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, Sarah Palin, plus a host of self-anointed apostles and prophets: both in the USA and abroad.
Rick Perry, Governor of Texas, has never lost a political race. His advisors are very close friends. His goal is to privatize education, reign in spending, cut labor costs and rights. He claims he is following the word of God, and held a "national" prayer that was filled with those who grew rich teaching different message of salvation, the most notorious being the NAR and its goal for world conquest and the establishment of a theocracy after destroying democracy.
