Mark will discuss the concepts of his new book “Red, White, Blue & Broke”.
As a devout Christian, Mark is incensed by the recent assault on our religion:
· Removal of God from our schools.
· Removal of the Ten Commandments from our government buildings.
· Removal of all mention of our Father’s good name, works and compassion from our society.
· Passing of tens of thousands of laws that attempt to redefine the morality already set forth by those ten commandments.
· Invoking spending programs that mandate compassion [as if free will would only mean we would be selfish and never help our fellow man with out government mandates].
· Being called racists or terrorists if we disagree with the government’s game plan.

“We must re-privatize compassion! When we do God's work and give from the heart, we are overcome spiritually with the endorphins of a job well done. The little hairs stand up on the backs of our necks, we tingle inside as we feel good in helping our neighbors in need as we give in Gods name. When government takes over the job of giving to our neighbors in need, where did Gods spiritual endorphins go? Government needs to get out of the "God" business. Compassion is a God thing, not an IRS thing.”
