Watchwoman on the Wall

Watchwoman:The deceptive, biased, liberal Democrat-controlled commie media has Americans convinced they are liberal when the exact opposite is true.  The media hacks are liberal jerks, but the average American is still conservative, but they don’t know they’re conservative. When we talk to our neighbors — about 600 of them in our precinct where we live, I know that 99% of them are conservative, yet our precinct consistently votes Democrat. Why? Because the unions and media and Hollyweird have convinced them to fear conservatives. Nevertheless, they are conservative and vote exactly the opposite of how they actually believe. That’s the power of unlimited money, voter fraud and the abuse by the media brainwashing Americans.  How is this happening?  Because we have turned away from God and He is no longer blessing us.  Read Deuteronomy 28 and [Revelation 2:4] “Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.” God, in the Ten Commandments demands to be our First Love. If your First Love is not Jesus Christ, you’re part of the problem, not part of the solution.  Turn back to Jesus!  Give Christ your all!  Sing the song, “I surrender all,” and mean it!  (Lyrics displayed below.)  ▬  Donna Calvin

While many elements of society seem to surely be shifting ever-further to the left of the political spectrum, a recent Gallup poll released Thursday reveals otherwise. According to the survey, conservatives continue to make up the largest political segment in the country, outnumbering liberals nearly two-to-one.

The Gallup poll shows that 40 percent of Americans consider themselves conservative; 35 percent moderate; and 21 percent view themselves as liberal. The figures are no different than they were in 2010 and conservatives have outnumbered both moderates and liberals for three years running now.

Politico adds:

Conservatives began outstripping moderates in 2008, and the percentage of moderates has declined steadily over the last two decades, from 43 percent 1992 to 35 percent in 2011.

In fact, both self-identified conservatives and liberals have risen in number since the early 1990s, indicating a growing polarization in American politics.

While self-identified conservatives dominate the Republican Party, making up 71 percent, the Democratic Party is more split – 39 percent of Democrats view themselves as liberal, and 38 percent consider themselves moderates.

It might be worth noting that, per the poll’s findings, independents are mainly moderate (41 percent), but veer more towards conservatism (35 percent) than liberalism (20 percent).

The Gallup poll was conducted with 20,392 respondents and allows for a margin of error of plus or minus one.

I SURRENDER ALL

All to Jesus, I surrender;
All to Him I freely give;
I will ever love and trust Him,
In His presence daily live.

Refrain

I surrender all, I surrender all,
All to Thee, my blessèd Savior,
I surrender all.

All to Jesus I surrender;
Humbly at His feet I bow,
Worldly pleasures all forsaken;
Take me, Jesus, take me now.

Refrain

All to Jesus, I surrender;
Make me, Savior, wholly Thine;
Let me feel the Holy Spirit,
Truly know that Thou art mine.

Refrain

All to Jesus, I surrender;
Lord, I give myself to Thee;
Fill me with Thy love and power;
Let Thy blessing fall on me.

Refrain

All to Jesus I surrender;
Now I feel the sacred flame.
O the joy of full salvation!
Glory, glory, to His name!
