Born Again Americans

As my wife and I were watching CNN this morning, the news report was showing Scott McClellan speaking to some house or senate panel regarding who said what and when regarding the issues uncovered in his tell-all book. My wife, who is rather new to politics, but a quick student, asked me if I knew who he was. I told her that Scott McClellan was a former Bush loyalist. I told her I didn't know enough about him to distinguish whether or not he was just a rat jumping off a sinking ship, or if his was a true change of heart and that he had decided to come forward to clear his conscience and do battle for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

My wife asked me, "If he is one of the good guys, does that make him a born again American?"

I just thought that was too cute! And True! I can remember back to when I hadn't a care in the world. When I believed that everything the government did was for the good of the people. Then I learned better, and sought to educate myself and others to what is really going on in washington.

I guess that makes me a Born Again American too.

I've been looking for a good E-Bay opportunity. I'll be putting that on a T-Shirt right away!

Welcome to this century

Born again American is a good one.

I like to tell people you more than welcome to join us in this century, and leave the stone age socialism of last century behind that many old life timer politicians seem to dwell in and embrace.

Please help spread it around. But my wife insists she reserves the copyright to it for commercial purposes. She's quite proud of herself now that she has coined a popular phrase. I've been out of work for months so we will try to use this commercially to help support ourselves and our new daughter. Any help in this endeavor would be much appreciated.

www.dvds4delegates.com the newest and possibly the greatest weapon the Revolution now possesses.

hahahaha Man this post gave me flash backs

When I was a kid the church would have baptisms down at the local creeks. Back then they were pretty big community events. To see people go out in the creek and be baptized was pretty neat to us kids. We would watch the woman go out in the water with their hair all fixed up. And when they come up out of the water because of all the hair spray they had in their hair it would take on all kinds of funny shapes. Us kids would get a good laugh at the way some of their hair looked when they come out of the water. Believe it our not there is not much that competes with a good revival for pulling alot of people into one place in a community. If a church is having a good revival people start hearing about it and the church starts getting packed. I think people in their nature want to be where God is moving. It's in our nature to be close to God. I don't know why but the thought of seeing a bunch of young people today going down and being baptized in a creek would make me stop my car and go join in. I think the older people of this country would stop and take notice of such an event. It brings back so many good memories of a time when everything was so much more simple. I know this is probably not what you guys are talking about but couldn't help my mind going back to a day when everyone seemed more connected. When people seemed so interrested in being as close to God as they could get. The churches now days don't eve talk about baptism. I had a guy at work tell me, it is like a wedding ring, it's just a symbol. I was amazed by this statement because this guy says he believed in the death burial and resurrection. Well if death is a symbol of repentance and going down in the water is the burial and you come up out of the water a new man. Then I would say its not just a sybmbol but rather it's where all the good stuff happens. I believe the greatest thing a christian can do is stand up for the name of Jesus and profess your love for him. I believe people who do this will be rewarded in like mannor when he will stand up for you on the day of judgement. I don't think I could live with myself if I was ashamed of Jesus. Anyways, I didn't mean to preach but I would be totally fascinated by a youth movement of kids getting back to the American roots of creeck baptisms and I think older Americans would take notice of such a thing. I think the shirt idea is wonderful for people who are truely born again. If it's to say that someone can be born again by being liberty minded I would say I think not. Be careful not to mock one of the greatest gifts of all. A second chance at life doesn't just come around the corner every day of the week. God almighty gave his flesh as a ransom for this gift of being born again. I know alot people say well I've never met God so I don't think there is one. You don't want to be in the middle of mocking his son, who gave his life, on the day that God shows up. I think if you want to honor God give them out after people are baptized. If you really want to see your country change try it. Its clear that nothing else seems to be helping. That last thing you need to do is feed the fuel of peole who feel like they are their own salvation with the idea they can just proclaim to be born again. The law (constitution) is good for protecting people from each other while they are on this earth it has nothing to do with heaven. Being born again has every thing to do with heaven and only gets you persecuted on earth. Although it would also be interesting to watch a bunch of evolutionist having to defend being born again. Can't say that I've ever seen an eevolutionist take the other side of the argument before that could be interesting.

Thanks for this.

Thanks for this.

Be sure that my intent is not to mock Born Again Christians, rather, I am trying to use the words, "born again american" to denote the difference between a person lukewarm or unconscious in their devotion to our nations founding principles, to one who has awakened and sees the light. It's rather difficult for me to put into words, but I do hope you can see the relationship as I intended it. It really is just a play on words meant to inspire conversation and an opportunity to educate others about our philosophy of liberty and our Revolution.

I wasn't baptised in a creek, but in a farmers pond. I think it was pretty cool. I was only thirteen then, and it wouldn't be until later in life that I really had a proper understanding of the meaning of baptism. Someday I would like to do it again. My wife and I would love to find a nice small town where we could both find jobs and raise our daughter. A place where the people were nice and there was still a real sense of community in the air.

Keep in mind.

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Freedom.

I think you would love Heber

I think you would love Heber Springs, AR. They still go to the lake and baptize people. They have a LOT of community church things, and it is pretty cheap to get property and houses here, tho they do tax one all the time..

Good slogan

Born Again American .. the name struck me right off the bat. National pride and sovereignty are in far too short order these days.

Remember "I Found it" in the seventies? It converted my mom.
