New Year's resolution? Look to God, not gov't ~ By Craig R. Smith

This year, when you make your New Year's resolution, look to yourself and to God for the strength to accomplish the change you desire. Don't look to Michelle and Barack or the House and the Senate. Look to God and the gift He put in each one of us to live in liberty.
Craig points out one of the major problems we have in this country. The liberals/progressives have slowly eroded away our liberty over the last century with well-intentioned, but unneeded government solutions. They refuse to allow Americans to take personal responsibility and look to God and their churches for answers and many of their needs.

This is the time of the year when everyone makes promises that will be broken by the end of January. Stop smoking, eat less, work out and all the other good, yet meaningless, intentions will fall by the wayside.

People want quick and easy solutions for difficult problems.

We even hear these promises from the White House. Our first lady is proffering a solution for childhood obesity. All we need is the government to mandate fresh fruits and vegetables in place of Cheetos and Pepsi, and the pounds will just fall off overnight.

Of course, Michelle will not suggest that parents get involved and tell their children to put down the video game, shut off the TV, go outside and play or put on ice skates and spend the afternoon with friends skating and eating fat-free soft pretzels, like I did as a kid.

No, that would require parents shutting off their iPhone or Blackberry, actually talking to their children, ignoring the "connected world" and connecting with their kids. We have become so distracted with being in touch with all that is going on around us that many parents prefer to keep their kids entertained with electronics rather than encourage healthy behavior.

If Michelle and Barack really want to curtail childhood obesity, how about locking up all the child molesters who stalk our public parks and playgrounds looking for their next victim? Many parents are terrified to allow their children to ride their bikes or play outside for fear they will be abducted and found days later in a dumpster.

It is truly sad that our children cannot go out and play safely in our communities because the liberals want to show how compassionate they are toward the "misunderstood," deviant slime who would hurt a child. The liberal judges slap them on the wrist and send them back out to offend again, all in the name of fairness.
