Sharrontology's Holy War... On The Constitution

Is this for real? Is this for real?

We have become a country entrenched in idolatry, and that idolatry is the dependency upon our government. We’re supposed to depend upon God for our protection and our provision and for our daily bread, not for our government. And you’ve just identified the real crux of the problem. I’ve also been endorsed by a PAC out of Washington D.C. and the name of that PAC is Government is not God. And I thought that that was so appropriate because that is really what’s happening in our society and we need to take our country back.

But whose god are we supposed to depend upon? Her god? Or John Ensign's god? Or Jim Gibbons' god? Or Mitch McConnell's god?

And for being Ms. "I ONLY go by The Constitution", how is this Constitutional? I don't remember reading anything about "depending on God for our protection and our provision, not upon government" in Article I, Section 8. In fact, it starts off like this...

The Congress shall have power To lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defence and general welfare of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

So what are we supposed to believe, The US Constitution or Sharron Angle's crazy rants?

And I knew that all along when I started praying over a year ago over it. And this just seemed to be the battle that I needed to go to war with. And I need warriors to stand beside me. You know, this is a war of ideology, a war of thoughts and of faith. And we need people to really stand for faith and trust, not hope and change.

This really explains it all. Sharrontology views this election as a "holy war", and all of us who don't agree with her are heathens... And we're all heathens for believing in the Constitution and in government's proper role in providing for the common defense and general welfare. I know Obtuse Angle wouldn't have allowed for this...

“Today’s vote offered a simple choice, we could either stand up for the jobs of teachers, firefighters and police officers by saying yes, or we could have turned our back on them and their families by saying no,” Reid said. “By overcoming this procedural hurdle, we are one step away from ensuring teachers jobs are secure for this school year, that funds are available for Nevadans who rely on Medicaid, and that our state avoids a budget shortfall that could result in more layoffs.”

The Education Jobs Fund provides an extension of Recovery Act funding to help preserve educator jobs. This fund will provide nearly $10 billion, fully offset by spending cuts, and will save an estimated 140,000 jobs. It is projected that Nevada schools will see an additional $83 million to keep educators working. This is fully paid for without cutting President Obama’s Race to the Top program, funding to expand charter schools or for the Teacher Incentive Fund.

More than 160,000 children, parents, seniors, and people with disabilities in Nevada rely on Medicaid funds for quality, affordable medical care. These funds also help states like Nevada retain employees and relieve state funding shortfalls. When passed, this bill will direct an additional $79 million in Medicaid funds to the state.

The Senate just voted to save critical teaching jobs at Nevada schools and keep people in need of health care on Medicaid... But Sharrontology views them as "sinners" because they're depending upon government and not her god. But hey, who needs The Constitution when we can just govern with Sharrontology's interpretation of The Bible?

(Oh, and forget what Jesus said about helping the poor and paying to Caesar what is Caesar's... What, you thought this dirty f*cking hippie didn't know what's in The Bible?)

  1. Nothing like a little Christianist Reconstructionism to add to the reasons Angle is well to the right of even the most conservative elements of the electorate. We really shouldn't be surprised at her philosophy, but it's always a little shocking to hear it out loud.
