Spike in birtherism reported in South Carolina

South Carolina, the third presidential primary state, is reported to have experienced a spike in birther sentiment among Republicans according to recent polls. South Carolina, the first state to leave the Union and fire the first shot in the Civil War, is once again rebelling against the National Executive. FitsNews.com in its article, SCGOP: Flipping On Obama’s Citizenship reports :

According to a new Public Policy Polling survey – released on Tuesday – 44 percent of likely [South Carolina] Republican voters do not believe that Obama was born in the United States. Meanwhile, 35 percent believe Obama is a U.S. citizen while 21 percent are not sure.

Two months ago, those numbers were virtually reversed – with 42 percent of GOP voters saying Obama was a citizen and 35 percent saying he wasn’t.

No explanation for the change was offered.

Currently, polls show that Rick Perry is the favorite on the Republican Side for President, despite the campaign blitz from Michele Bachman (3rd) that we reported last month.

    Not really surprising seeing as how South Carolina is the promised kingdom of the Christian Exodus project, which seeks to have all “real” Christians move to S Carolina and then vote to secede from the Union and establish a theocracy.

    http://www.christianexodus.org

    “ChristianExodus.org was founded in November of 2003 in response to the moral degeneration of American culture, and the rampant corruption among the powers that be. The initial goal was to move thousands of Christian constitutionalists to South Carolina to accelerate the return to self-government based upon Christian principles at the local and State level. This project continues to this day, with the ultimate goal of forming an independent Christian nation that will survive after the decline and fall of the financially and morally bankrupt American empire. We have learned, however; that the chains of our slavery and dependence upon godless government have more of a hold on us than can be broken by simply moving to another State.

    As many like-minded Christian activists pursue independent Christian living without relocating, the scope has expanded to promote “personal secession” though many and various tracks, wherever they can be implemented. The long process of disentanglement from idolatrous dependencies includes such practices of moving towards a home-centered economy, with intentional community, home-schooling, home-gardening, house churches, health-cost sharing, private exchange, unlicenced ministry, and any other way in which we might live free and godly lives in Christ Jesus, without prostrating ourselves to eat from the hand of the imperial magistrate. “

    Is it remotely possible that PaulG, Paul Guthrie & JediPauly share the same molecules?

    Sounds like they’d prefer socialism or communism instead of a democracy. Whatever it is they’d like, it certainly isn’t supported by the constitution of the United States.

    Daniel pointed out that in addition to having a large number of Republican birthers, South Carolina also is, “the promised kingdom of the Christian Exodus project, which seeks to have all “real” Christians move to S Carolina and then vote to secede from the Union and establish a theocracy.”

    South Carolina is already the kingdom of Brother Stair, an end-time radio preacher (and convicted sex offender) who established the Overcomer Ministry, a so-called Christian commune where he and his followers await a coming war between God and the anti-Christ. A war which they earnestly hope will destroy everyone but themselves.

    If you find yourself late at night driving a lonely patch of highway, be sure to scan the AM dial for one of Brother Stair’s hour long tirades. There’s nothing like his monomaniacal rantings to add a Stephen King-esque ghoulishness to a midnight ride.

    Note how the two usually go together.

    “Currently, polls show that Rick Perry is the favorite on the Republican Side for President”

    Here’s Perry, who has some passionate Jewish supporters, who have screamed insults at me for not supporting him:

    In 2006 he said that he believed the Bible to be inerrant. He also said that those who did not accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior would be going to hell.

    I also saw the “socialist” sticker on the Japanese made Honda. Here’s Michele Bachmann, and her hatred of socialism:

    Bachmann took more than $250K in farm subsidies. She tells some people she is a legislator, and tells others she is a farmer.

    Regarding the (mis-)use of the word “socialism”, it is kind of ironic that a country that so strongly supports its aerospace and automobile industries (not that there is anything wrong with that, au contraire) would come to look at “socialism” as some kind of scrarecrow. What’s next, Oxygen?

    Socialism that gives exorbitant amounts of money to corporations and the filthy rich is OK. Socialism that gives a crust of bread to poor starving children is BAD. You must try to keep up.
