Day434 Sunday 11/06/11

ran 2.2 miles
Today ends week sixty-two of running against Obama. I ran 23.1 miles this week, averaging 3.30 miles per day. Today also puts us exactly one year out from the next presidential election. On Tuesday, November 6, 2012, Barack Obama will hopefully be deemed a one-term president and the House and Senate will hopefully be weeded once again and replaced by new members who refuse to waste tax dollars and find deplorable the idea of increasing our national debt in any way, shape or form that our current president is so content to do. This next year is going to be a long, ugly journey but it will make it that much sweeter when we get this guy out of the White House. From chaos comes order and it is darkest just before dawn.

Here is one of a multitude of examples why I fundamentally disagree with this man and question his judgment constantly. Below is the prayer that President Franklin D. Roosevelt read to America over the radio on June 6, 1944. The prayer was read on the evening of D-Day before American, British, and Canadian troops were to storm Normandy. Barack Obama decided against including the prayer at the World War II Memorial in Washington D.C.

When you have a gun in your hand in a strange land and you are fighting an overwhelming enemy for your life, for your family, and for your country, you do what brave, grown men do, you pray. That is what the president of the United States of America did on that evening in 1944 as millions listened and held hands praying with him. It is a piece of American history and our culture that is constantly attacked by the left. Barack Obama and those who agree with his ungrateful view that “God” should be mentioned as seldom as possible regarding anything American are insulting and disrespectful. This prayer happened. It consoled, even if just a little bit, millions of soldiers and the family they had back home. How can you choose to not include such a monumental element of D-Day at the D-Day Memorial?!

"It is unconscionable that the Obama administration would stand in the way of honoring our nation's distinguished World War II veterans. President Roosevelt's prayer gave solace, comfort and strength to our nation and our brave warriors as we fought against tyranny and oppression."

Representative Bill Johnson (R-Ohio)
“My Fellow Americans:

Last night, when I spoke with you about the fall of Rome, I knew at that moment that troops of the United States and our Allies were crossing the Channel in another and greater operation. It has come to pass with success thus far.

And so, in this poignant hour, I ask you to join with me in prayer:

Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.

Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith.

They will need Thy blessings. Their road will be long and hard. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph.

They will be sore tried, by night and by day, without rest -- until the victory is won. The darkness will be rent by noise and flame. Men's souls will be shaken with the violences of war.

For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and goodwill among all Thy people. They yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home.

Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom.

And for us at home -- fathers, mothers, children, wives, sisters, and brothers of brave men overseas, whose thoughts and prayers are ever with them -- help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in Thee in this hour of great sacrifice.

Many people have urged that I call the nation into a single day of special prayer. But because the road is long and the desire is great, I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips, invoking Thy help to our efforts.

Give us strength, too -- strength in our daily tasks, to redouble the contributions we make in the physical and the material support of our armed forces.

And let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that may come, to impart our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be.

And, O Lord, give us faith. Give us faith in Thee; faith in our sons; faith in each other; faith in our united crusade. Let not the keeness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment -- let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose.

With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogances. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace -- a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.

Thy will be done, Almighty God.


President Franklin D. Roosevelt - June 6, 1944
