Happy Thanksgiving, American Patriots

Before I begin, I hear many of you saying, “No way, Lloyd.  Enough with your positive ‘God is in control and everything is going to be all right’ crap!  We lost the most important election in U.S. history.  Obama won, and America as we know and love it is over!”

You are correct.  Things look pretty bad.  So what the heck do patriots have to be thankful for this Thanksgiving?

Well, folks, all I can do is go back to basics; be thankful for the things that money cannot buy.  I am thankful for my wife of over thirty years who still loves me.  I am thankful for my health.  I am thankful for my new relationship with my adult daughter.  I am thankful for my over-twenty-year relationship with my music producer Frank Starchak and his family.  Mary and I watched Frank’s and his wife Sonya’s son and daughter grow up to be awesome adults.  We are their Uncle Lloyd and Aunt Mary.

I am extremely thankful for the love and respect I receive from patriots across America.  Occasionally, kind comments posted in response to my articles have brought my wife Mary to tears.

A patriot brother, Michael Holler, the author of The Constitution Made Easy, offered some great advice.  Michael said that there is not much we can do between now and next year.  Patriots are exhausted and traumatized.  Michael thought it best that we chill out and enjoy life.

Michael’s wise suggestion brought to mind a Bible story about Elijah, who was fearful, exhausted, and hopeless.  Emotionally spent, Elijah asked God to take his life.  He fell asleep two times.  Both times, an angel awakened Elijah with food and water.  After rest and food, Elijah was able to go forward (1 Kings 19:9-18).

Brothers and sisters, we need time to refresh and get our heads together before moving forward to defeat Obama.

So as corny as it sounds, I am going to count my blessings, focusing on all of the amazing good stuff in my life.  I have much to be thankful for because God has been pretty awesome to me.

Patriots, eat too much turkey and pumpkin pie.  Dance and drink too much eggnog.  Love on the wife and kids.  Laugh…a lot.

Come January 1, 2013, get your butts into the gym.  We have a country to take back, and we need you ready for duty.  Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hang in there Lloyd.

    You are a wise man. I know God is in control as you do. I have to admit I am disappointed to see Obama in power to cause four more years of destruction, but as you point to Elijah, today my pastor pointed to Gideon in Judges 6:13-14

    “But Sir,” Gideon replied, “if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our fathers told us about when they said ‘Did the Lord bring us up out of Egypt?’ But now the Lord has abandoned us and put us into the hand of Midian.”

    The Lord turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?”

    Things don’t work out the way we expect them to, but God is in control. Furthermore, he has placed us here to hold His word and His laws in place. If we fail, we have only ourselves to blame.

    Thank you for fighting the good fight. You are not alone.

    The Great God in Heaven, chose Mr. Obama to rule this Kingdom. HOLY BIBLE-DANIEL 4:17
    If you will read From The HOLY BIBLE in the book of DEUTERONOMY 28:43 will prove where this
    country is in time.THE ONLY HOPE AND THEIR IS HOPE, EVERY INDIVIDUAL GO TO A PRIVATE ROOM AND GET ON YOUR KNEES AND ASK GOD TO FORGIVE YOU FOR YOUR SINS. [SIN IS BREAKING GOD’S COMMANDMENTS 1 JOHN 3: 4 ] ASK GOD TO LEAD YOU IN HIS WAY OF LIFE. GROW IN GRACE AND KNOWLEDGE. DO NOT LOOK FOR THE PREACHERS TO GET US OUT OF THIS TROUBLE,THEY GOT US IN THIS MESS. THE PREACHERS USE JESUS NAME, BUT NEVER PREACH HIS MESSAGE.
    REMEMBER- WHEN YOU BREAK GOD’S LAW, REPENT HE WILL FORGIVE YOU.

    Thankful? Yes, because had Obama NOT won, I probably would not have been motivated to meandfer over toward your neck of the internet woods. Up here in Maine, we have a lot of guys who are, let’s say, ……. um, well prepared. ‘Nuff said, and I know, while they might have been conflicted about Romney, they sure as hell weren’t going to vote for that globalist shoe shine attendant Obama.

    It isn’t just your railing against Obama for his politics, and this was never a race issue, obviously, but the tone and content of your articles only reminds me that we need more patriotic citizens, such as yourself, spreading the word of truth. You’re welcome at my campfire anytime. God bless.

    I agree with BR549…If it were not for the defeat, I would have not found your website. It has been a great encouragement to me and it is good to know that there are others out there who think like me…

    Don’t stop sharing your wisdom..
