It’s about time that some one in political office gets it right. Michelle Bachmann is finally realizing that the Left’s real agenda is turn government into the Lord over us all. The God of the government is the religion of the evil Obama, the Left, the Democrat Socialist Party, Rhinos in the Republican Party, and the state run media.
Since our fall from grace man has been trying to get back to the Garden of Eden. This is Biblical in nature. God created man in his own image and The Lord God Almighty told Adam and Eve they can partake of anything they wanted except eat the fruit from the tree of knowledge.
Being rebellious Adam and Eve took the bait and ate the forbidden fruit. This act of defiance has resulted in man’s problems for all these thousands of years.
Genesis Two and Three tells the entire story.
Genesis 2; 2 So the creation of the heavens and the earth and everything in them was completed. 2 On the seventh day God had finished his work of creation, so he rested[a] from all his work. 3 And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when he rested from all his work of creation.4 This is the account of the creation of the heavens and the earth.
The Man and Woman in Eden
When the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, 5 neither wild plants nor grains were growing on the earth. For the Lord God had not yet sent rain to water the earth, and there were no people to cultivate the soil. 6 Instead, springs[b] came up from the ground and watered all the land. 7 Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person.8 Then the Lord God planted a garden in Eden in the east, and there he placed the man he had made. 9 The Lord God made all sorts of trees grow up from the ground—trees that were beautiful and that produced delicious fruit. In the middle of the garden he placed the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.10 A river flowed from the land of Eden, watering the garden and then dividing into four branches. 11 The first branch, called the Pishon, flowed around the entire land of Havilah, where gold is found. 12 The gold of that land is exceptionally pure; aromatic resin and onyx stone are also found there. 13 The second branch, called the Gihon, flowed around the entire land of Cush. 14 The third branch, called the Tigris, flowed east of the land of Asshur. The fourth branch is called the Euphrates.15 The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it. 16 But the Lord God warned him, “You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden— 17 except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die.”18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.” 19 So the Lord God formed from the ground all the wild animals and all the birds of the sky. He brought them to the man[c] to see what he would call them, and the man chose a name for each one. 20 He gave names to all the livestock, all the birds of the sky, and all the wild animals. But still there was no helper just right for him. 21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While the man slept, the Lord God took out one of the man’s ribs[d] and closed up the opening. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man.23 “At last!” the man exclaimed. “This one is bone from my bone, and flesh from my flesh! She will be called ‘woman,’because she was taken from ‘man.’24 This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.25 Now the man and his wife were both naked, but they felt no shame.
Genesis 3: The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the Lord God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?”2 “Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied. 3 “It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.’4 “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. 5 “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”6 The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too. 7 At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves. 8 When the cool evening breezes were blowing, the man[a] and his wife heard the Lord God walking about in the garden. So they hid from the Lord God among the trees. 9 Then the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?”10 He replied, “I heard you walking in the garden, so I hid. I was afraid because I was naked.”11 “Who told you that you were naked?” the Lord God asked. “Have you eaten from the tree whose fruit I commanded you not to eat?”12 The man replied, “It was the woman you gave me who gave me the fruit, and I ate it.”13 Then the Lord God asked the woman, “What have you done?”“ The serpent deceived me,” she replied. “That’s why I ate it.”14 Then the Lord God said to the serpent, Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all animals, domestic and wild. You will crawl on your belly, groveling in the dust as long as you live.
15 And I will cause hostility between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and her offspring. He will strike[b] your head,
and you will strike his heel.”16 Then he said to the woman,“ I will sharpen the pain of your pregnancy, and in pain you will give birth.
And you will desire to control your husband,
but he will rule over you.[c]”17 And to the man he said, “Since you listened to your wife and ate from the tree whose fruit I commanded you not to eat,
the ground is cursed because of you. All your life you will struggle to scratch a living from it. 18 It will grow thorns and thistles for you,
though you will eat of its grains.19 By the sweat of your brow
will you have food to eat until you return to the ground
from which you were made For you were made from dust,
and to dust you will return.” 20 Then the man—Adam—named his wife Eve, because she would be the mother of all who live.[d] 21 And the Lord God made clothing from animal skins for Adam and his wife.22 Then the Lord God said, “Look, the human beings[e] have become like us, knowing both good and evil. What if they reach out, take fruit from the tree of life, and eat it? Then they will live forever!” 23 So the Lord God banished them from the Garden of Eden, and he sent Adam out to cultivate the ground from which he had been made. 24 After sending them out, the Lord God stationed mighty cherubim to the east of the Garden of Eden. And he placed a flaming sword that flashed back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life. http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Genesis%203&version=NLT
Man has wanted to return to the Garden of Eden since being kicked all those years ago. Man has been trying to do this through his own work and deeds not through God’s grace and mercy. The return to Eden has been the underlying principle of Sir Thomas Mores Utopia, Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto and Das Capital, Plato’s Republic just to name a few of the great books written by man on the subject.
This idea has haunted man since God created us thousands of years ago. God not man created Eden. God could have forced Adam and Eve to bow down and worship Him but the Lord God Almighty gave us freedom of choice. God gave us freedom of choice. And this basic principle is the difference between God and man-made Utopia. Man made utopia forces everyone to bow down to the King, Philosopher King, or those selected few chosen by man. They will run our lives from womb to tomb. The lie that man can create Utopia is done so we give up our sovereignty and thus become servants and slaves to the state. The state or the King is God not the God of the Bible or the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
The God of the Bible gives us choices. We can choose to live by the word of God or not. The choice is ours. In made man Utopia we must follow the leaders and if we don’t we die. It is plain and simple as that.
Our founding fathers based this country on one of these many Godly principles. Freedom of choice, individual rights, private property rights and the biggie sovereignty is with us not the government. All freedom and life comes from God not the King or the central planning bureau.

The pull quotes.
“The people want to have their liberties back and they don’t like to see religious institutions, particularly the Catholic Church, have to be forced to deny their sincerely held faith and the doctrine of their faith in order to be in compliance with government because at that point who is God?” Bachman said.
“Is government God? Or are people allowed to follow their conscience before God?” said Bachmann.
“That’s really the issue at hand and we cannot have this change that Barack Obama has put forward and that’s why you see the people here today who are working very hard to make sure they can hold on to their religious liberties,” Bachmann said.
