I have heard the declaration from the president, the Democrats, and Hillary Clinton when someone opposes something they want to do, “That’s Not What America Is All About?” Somehow that has effectively sent many Republicans into the shadows cowering in fear that if they firmly stand for what is right on that issue they will be negatively viewed by the public. They misunderstand, as they have frequently, the heart and mindset of the American people but if they take a stand the media might not like them. News Flash Republicans, the Media, and Democrats will not like you regardless of what you do short of becoming a liberal Democrat. They only support the liberal leftist progressive statist cause and ideology and anything else, to them, is ‘not what America is all about.’
What is the America as the Founding Fathers envisioned and our Constitution prescribes all about? What is that America? The Founding Fathers viewed one of the critical factors in the success of the Republic a moral society, citizen representatives, and men of integrity serving in elected positions. They considered America’s Sovereignty, her Borders, National Defense, Frugality in spending, and the right of all American citizens to keep and use their personal property as they saw fit unnegotiable guarantees. They never sought to evict God and the Bible from all things public as is the trend today. They wanted a clear separation of powers between the three branches of government where none of the three had unlimited power.
John Adams gave a speech to the military in 1798 sounding a clear warning, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion…Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.” That sentiment and view is anathema to the leftist of today and their expressed view is that NOTHING of the Bible or Christianity is allowable in our civic deliberations and decisions. James Wilson, a signer of the Constitution and a Supreme Court Justice argued, “Human law must rest its authority ultimately upon the authority of that law which is divine…Far from being rivals or enemies, religion and law are twin sisters, friends, and mutual assistance. Indeed, these two sciences run into each other.” Imagine that! Per the revisionist of today, that view should be profoundly rejected and that justice would become the target of the media and much of Congress and there is a real possibility there would be an effort to impeach them.
Robert Winthrop, served as Speaker of the House of Representatives, stated, “Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled by either a power within them or by a power without them; either the Word of God or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible or by the bayonet.” Does that even remotely sound as though he and the other founders considered God, the Bible, and Christianity poisonous to civic governments? Does it not rather sound as though the valued the moral fiber found in God and the Bible and wanted it incorporated into society and government? Benjamin Franklin contended, “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, the need more masters.” The Continental Congress in 1778 issued this decree, “Whereas true religion and good morals are the only solid foundations of public liberty and happiness…it is hereby earnestly recommended to the several States to take the most effectual measures for the encouragement thereof.”
Today, we are faced with political candidates that embody none of those characteristics. We have one candidate and the party that has divorced itself from God and the Bible, no longer considers the biblical position on marriage valid and places no value on the life of the unborn in the womb. That party and candidate place less value and importance on legal American citizens and our veterans than they do on illegal immigrants and people from other nations. That party emphasizes the rights of certain groups over the rights of everyone and fails to value the Constitution or recognize our inalienable rights. If we contend for our rights they chide us saying, “That is not what America is all about.” We are branded bigots, racist, suffering from some phobic condition, insensitive, uncaring, and only interested in the super-rich, not every American. The America they desire is all powerful and, in their view, a virtual god which grants rights failing to recognize our inalienable rights. In the words of our First President, George Washington, “Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society.”
Hillary, Mr. Obama, Mr. Reid, Ms. Pelosi, Donna Brazile, mainstream media, and liberal leftist, the America that our Founders envisioned and established demands that we respect the rights of all citizens. It demands that we have a secure border and a strong national defense. It demands that we elevate no group above other groups in society. It demands that we are frugal in our spending. It demands that we expect people to earn what they receive and makes no provision for the massive entitlements you seek and desire. It demands those seeking high office demonstrate a moral fiber and character honoring the constitution. That is what America is all about not what you seek to transform her into.
November 8th, we must decide who will entrust the reigns of our government. This election is not a vote on individuals as much as it is a vote for Freedom and the survival of the Constitutional Republic we were given and have enjoyed. I ask that you seriously pray and carefully consider the cost and consequences of our decision.
God, bless you and God bless America!
