At the end of the Constitutional Convention in September 1787, a Mrs. Elizabeth Powell of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, “A republic, madam, if you can keep it.”
I make no apology for my belief that it was God in His infinite wisdom that raised up the Founding Fathers to establish our Constitutional Republic. It was through His Divine providence and inspiration that its founding documents were written. It is from Him that we receive our unalienable rights to Life, Liberty and Property. It must be understood that ALL human rights come from our Father in Heaven and NOT from earthly governments. Because if government has the power and ability to bestow human rights – government has the power to rescind those rights.
I make no apology for my belief that God caused this nation, our Constitutional Republic, to rise and that it was by His providence that it became great. The greatest nation on earth. The beacon of hope and the bulwark of freedom for His children every where. A nation destined to “proclaim liberty throughout all the land [world] unto all the inhabitants thereof:” A nation destined throughout its history, in many conflicts and at the cost of the life’s blood and treasure of its citizens, to preserve the liberty and freedom of many nations, kindreds, tongues and peoples.
I make no apology for my belief that governments are instituted by man to protect their God given unalienable rights to Life, Liberty and Property not to destroy them. Governments should never do for their citizens what the citizens should do for themselves. Governments should always preserve the self-reliance of their citizens. I make no apology for my belief that governments can never administer Charity because Charity is never forced and government by its nature is always force. Government can only give through “social-justice” to one citizen what it has first taken from another citizen.
I make no apology for my belief in God and his Son, Jesus Christ, as the Savior and Redeemer of the World. I make no apology for my belief, along with Benjamin Franklin, that God rules in the affairs of men and of nations. I make no apology for my belief, along with Thomas Jefferson, that He is our Creator from whom we receive our unalienable rights to Life, Liberty and Property. The person who wants freedom to enjoy their God-given unalienable rights must first accept God’s law of choice and accountability. The personal responsibility for their own conduct and the consequences of their own choices. It was Jim English who taught me that “Freedom is not divisible. ‘Religious’ and ‘political’ liberty are but two peas in the same pod. The ‘pod’ is a gift of God. It is the divine principle which equates freedom with individual responsibility.” I make no apology for my belief that neither an individual nor a nation can get ahead by leaving God behind.
It is also clear that Proverbs 29:2 is very true: “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.” I, with Benjamin Disraeli, am “weary of statesmen whom democracy has degraded into politicians.” May God grant us Statesmen who desire to right our badly listing Ship of State rather than politicians seeking their own power and the enslavement of We the People.
VOTE FOR LIBERTY on November 3, 2020 NOT SOCIALISM!
May God Bless and Save the United States of America —
