Statesmen vs. Politicians

We the People have two types of leaders in our Constitutional Republic – Statesmen and Politicians. We the People strive to find and elect Statesmen to serve in our Constitutional Republic. Many of these are reluctant to serve but become reconciled and serve faithfully. We the People often though find only Politicians very willing to go for their own selfish ends but not to serve our Constitutional Republic.

But what think ye? A certain man (We the People) had two sons (Statesmen and Politicians); and he (We the People)came to the first (Statesmen), and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard (Our Constitutional Republic).  He answered and said, I will not: (Greek: “I will it not.” or “It is not my will to do so.”) but afterward he repented, (Greek: “he reconciled himself”) and went.  And he (We the People) came to the second (Politicians), and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not (to do what was good for the Constitutional Republic).  Whether of them twain did the will of his father (We the People)?  (See Matthew 21:28-31a)

I leave the reader to decide which does the will of We the People.

Statesmen place the Liberty and Freedoms of We the People and the needs and good of our Constitutional Republic before self. Statesmen recognize that they are the “servants” of We the People. Statesmen are concerned for and work for national unity and the protection of the ideals contained in our founding documents – the Declaration of Independence and our divinely inspired Constitution. Their only desire is to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.”

Politicians seek only to enlarge their personal power which leads to the loss of Liberty and Freedoms and the subjugation of We the People as “slaves” on a government plantation under their control. Politicians see themselves as the “rulers” of We the People. Politicians care nothing about national unity or the ideals contained in our founding documents. They are only concerned with the “politics of division” to accomplish their overarching goal of one-party rule in an oligarchy of their power in a Welfare Socialist State.
