Pryor invokes faith ahead of 2014 election

LITTLE ROCK — Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor is invoking his Christian faith ahead of next year's election in his latest political speech and campaign ad.

Pryor cited the Bible as he spoke to the Political Animals Club in Little Rock on Wednesday morning.

And he discusses his faith in a new television ad that his campaign says will begin airing in Arkansas on Wednesday.

In the ad, Pryor professes his belief in God. And in talking to the political group in Little Rock, he referred to the golden rule and a Bible verse as he discussed political gridlock in Washington.

Pryor is the lone Democrat in Arkansas' congressional delegation.

He's seeking a third term against Republican challenger and U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton.

Cotton represents south Arkansas' 4th District.

He lies also, just like Obama.

God gave man free will, but somehow ole' Mark decided with rest of the Socialist Democratic Party to vote some of our free will away under Obama Care.

Pryor is a moderate. He also is a Christian. We went to the same summer camp--Brookhill Ranch outside Hot Springs. You cannot leave that camp without loving the Lord.

Pop here is the problem the liberals face; you have all of the Happy Holidays libs who want anything referring to Christmas removed from this time of year. I think we need to settle it now. If you want to have the time off and celebrate the birth of Christ fine; but if you insist on removing all of the Nativity scenes, mentions of Jesus and Mary and everything else let's just make December a clean month with no days off and quit wasting money on gifts. It is getting progressively worse every year.

Pryor is a Democrat. Democrats support gay marriage and the gay agenda in general; are about 99% pro-abortion; support wacko environmental causes; are pushing a socialist agenda on the nation; have no clue concerning economics, the deficit, the national debt; are up to their eyeballs in crony capitalism, corruption, and general waste of taxpayers money; have no clue concerning foreign policy or the military; and are lead by absolutely THE worst president in history and a bunch of idiots in the House, Senate and executive branch bureaucracy. I wouldn't vote for Pryor if he said he was Jesus himself and had proof, or any other Democrat.

At this point, it doesn't really matter who's elected to the 4th. Both parties are just two sides of the same coin-- the Business Party. We don't live in a democracy. We live in a polyarchy. Our federal government has long been co-opted by huge monied interests that employ well-paid think tanks and public relations firms to manipulate public opinion. This newspaper, owned by Walter Hussman's Wehco Media, is a prime example.

Pryor's religious affiliation with the controversial C Street Center, whose founder was an admirer of European fascism, is well-known.

If given the choice between a socialist government or a fascist regime, I'd choose the former every time. But the military-industrial complex, the fossil fuel industry, the banks and various and sundry multi-national corporations now run this country. Only they do so behind closed doors to keep people like you and me from finding out the truth: our government is no longer ruled with the consent of the governed.
