Angle: Reid And Obama Pushing To ‘Make Government Our God’


Angle: Reid and Obama pushing to 'make government our god'Sharron Angle, Nevada’s Republican nominee for the United States Senate, said in an interview earlier this year that the recent expansion of Federal entitlement programs is an attempt by President Obama and other Democratic leaders to "make government our god."

Angle, who said that her decision to run against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was a "calling" from God, suggested in an interview with TruNews Christian Radio that big government has essentially become a false idol for some people.

"What’s happening in this country is a violation of the First Commandment," she told the Christian radio network.

"We have become a country entrenched in idolatry, and that idolatry is the dependency upon our government," she added. "We’re supposed to depend upon God for our protection and our provision and for our daily bread, not on our government."

Reid, who is currently running advertisements that paint Angle as an "extreme" candidate, called her recently published statements "frightening." While the interview with the Christian radio station was conducted in April, it was just recently picked up by major news stations.

If elected, Angle said she would fight to privatize social security and Medicare, according to The Associated Press (AP).
