Who and What is the Happy Warrior
This blog is a representation, in conversational form, of my voyage to wrap my arms around the world in which Mr. Worsdworth's warrior finds happiness.

Why I'm voting against President Obama: Reason #3
Fast foward two and a half centuries and our secularized society is making a full court press to extinguish God from the public square, to debate him out of existence and to shame His moral foundations (i.e. traditional concept of marriage, the primacy of the family in the social order, individual responsibility, submission to authority, conception of the sacred, etc.) out of society. Does anyone need a more obvious illustration of this effort than the recent vote at the Democratic national convention?
Behind President Obamas political philosophy is the substitution of God by the government. We, as citizens should not rely upon God for our daily bread but upon government. We should not declare our allegiance to some untouchable, inmaterial Being (certainly not at some high school graduation ceremony or in a court room) but our allegiance should be declared to government. The most fundamental expression of allegiance is by the contribution of our money. God's tithe (10%) has been far eclipsed by government's requirement that we pay upwards of 50% to accomplish their "good" works. Government is by far the more oppressive overseer.
So sorry but I included two reasons (although interrelated) why I'm voting against President Obama in this post. I'll try to keep my discussions more focused.
