"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32 . . . . .

White House Appears Ready To Drop 'Public Option'

By A.M. Kisly 

Breaking News from the Associated Press The people have spoken and it's looking like they have been heard! 

According to the Associated Press in Washington this morning — "President Barack Obama's administration signaled on Sunday it is ready to abandon the idea of giving Americans the option of government-run health insurance as part of his ambitious health care proposal." 

"Facing mounting opposition to the overhaul, administration officials left open the chance for a compromise with Republicans that would include health insurance cooperatives instead of a government-run plan. Such a concession probably would enrage Obama's liberal supporters but could deliver a much-needed victory on a top domestic priority opposed by GOP lawmakers." 

The Washington Times Time will certainly tell whether or not this battle is won, however we are encouraged by this news. We are so proud of the private citizens who have taken the time and energy to do their homework, contact their states representatives, go to town hall meetings and let their voice be heard. What a wonderful example of democracy when "we the people" begin to engage in what is our responsibility, in order to protect our freedoms and the future of our country. 

While I'm not yet ready to let my guard down at this point, I am more optimistic which is a welcome change. Dear readers, continue to be diligent in your efforts to speak to your Congress and Senate about this matter and the many matters that will arise after this. Continue to be steadfast in prayer for our country and our leaders.
