Conservative AMAC vs. Liberal AARP

If you are over 50, particularly if you are a member of AARP, you may want to rethink that organization. AARP was once a respectable voice for the interests of seniors. They worked in Washington, D.C. to advocate the causes of those in retirement or approaching retirement. They also offered many services for this age group. Unfortunately, they have become an arm of the liberal movement in America and have lost touch with their mainstream members. The conservative alternative, AMAC, is a growing competitor and worthy of your consideration.

If you have turned 50, no doubt you have received appeals for you to join the American Association of Retired Persons, or AARP. For many years, they have lobbied Congress on issues related to this 50+ demographic. They offer appealing services and discounts for such things as travel, dining, insurance, health services, etc. I paid their reasonable fee and joined the organization as soon as I crossed that half-century mark. Then, about seven years ago, I began to see some things in their literature and magazine that troubled me. They were leading the charge in promoting Obamacare. The further I looked, more was revealed about their liberal institutional values and principles. They are now trying to save Obamacare and are opposing almost everything President Trump is trying to do. They are leftist leaning in almost every aspect of their operations. Since most of us 50+ folks are conservatives, I have to conclude that AARP is not working for the majority of us.

I began hearing about the Association of Mature American Citizens, AMAC, about five years ago. It was founded eight years ago by a great patriot and Christian business man, Dan Weber, and has rapidly grown to over 1.3 million members. Its values and principles are conservative, and it advances both God and country. AMAC has an active operations office in Washington, D.C. and administrative offices in New York and Florida. Its lobbyists work aggressively on Capitol Hill in the interests of the 50+ population. They are working to repeal and replace Obamacare and to support conservative initiatives in general. They offer essentially the same services and discounts as AARP for about the same low annual fee. For a limited time, you can get your first year membership free by using the promo code “Ben” in your application–a promotion by radio host Ben Ferguson. AMAC’s political action strategy includes a unique grass roots effort. An AMAC Delegate has been appointed for each Congressional district across America. I am the volunteer Delegate for Arkansas’ 4th District. Like other delegates, I am obligated to meet with my Congressman, Bruce Westerman, periodically to discuss issues of importance to seniors and to promote AMAC’s position on those issues. This helps keep our country’s Congressmen focused on their senior constituents.

AARP has been around for many years and has a large membership. Their sheer size gives them a significant advantage in Washington. Therefore, it is important that conservatives shift this lobbying power balance away from AARP and toward AMAC. So, if you are on the back side of 50, I urge you to go to AMAC’s website, https://amac.us, read all about it, and become a member. It’s an outstanding organization working on your behalf. Remember, the first year is free if you go to https://amac.us/ben and use the promo code, “Ben.”

Is God Trying to Get America’s Attention?

Life is not arbitrary. Everything has purpose. Three consecutive hurricanes, the credible threat of a nuclear attack, government in chaos, and, in the midst of it all, a rare solar eclipse. I’m not a doomsayer, but we have been instructed to watch for signs precisely like these as an indication of what is coming soon. We should not ignore possible meaning in what America has experience over the past few weeks.

No, I’m not going to stand on the street corner with a “The End is Near” sign. But, when I see blinding evidence in a concentrated period of what Jesus said to look for, it gets my attention. In Matthew 24, when asked about signs of the “end of the age,” Jesus referenced wars and rumors of wars, nation against nation, violent hate, natural disasters, and a darkened sun.

Every meteorologist I have heard has called the combined power and timing of hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Jose unprecedented. My Air Force career was concentrated on the cold-war nuclear threat of the Soviet Union. However, I didn’t view that threat with nearly the concern I have for the saber rattlings of North Korea and, although less imminent, Iran. Psychopath Kim Jong Un’s missile fly-over of Japan demonstrating the range to hit Guam and ultimately America is frightening. Confidence in our government in these times is almost nil with the President’s flip-flops, incendiary comments, and irrational behavior coupled with the bickering and incompetence of Congress. Then, it’s rather poetic that this enigmatic period was punctuated by a historical solar eclipse over the center of America.

Okay, I know this eclipse was pin-pointed¬† by astronomers decades ago. But, isn’t it intriguing that something of such biblical significance happened simultaneously with so many other “signs?” It is also interesting to me that the next solar eclipse over America will be in just seven years as opposed to a century since the one previous to this year’s. Are we needing more frequent reminders of the final eclipse that is associated with the second coming of the Lord?

Our imaginations can run wild when aligning current phenomena with biblical prophecies. The Bible is clear that no one on earth can know when all creation as we know it will be transformed. But, the scriptures do instruct us to discern the signs of the times in anticipation of all things being made right in the establishment of Heaven on earth. I have always believed that America was established by the will of God and maintains a special place in His heart. Could He be giving us a personal heads-up for us to get our act together?  What do you think?
