The Sixties Radical

The American people have finally awakened from their long slumber. During this time, we have seen God kicked out of our country, the erosion of the Constitution, the ever-expanding and intrusive federal government in our lives, and the election of a fascist president.

I know these are strong statements but this the only way I know how to write it. I believe in calling it “What is it is quiz.” However, this is more than a quiz. Our very nation is on the verge of destruction.

These statements can be seen as very mellow dramatic but they are not. President Obama and his cronies Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and the rest of the members of congress are in the process of ramming their socialist fascist agenda down our throats.

This blow up or train wreck that has happened between the government and the American people is directly related to God. I know you think I am crazy. Please don’t tell me all about this Jesus, God, and Bible stuff and how relates to the founding fathers and the principles upon which this country is founded. It is and I will attempt to show you how.

Yeah, I know about “The Religion” argument and how the British were a religious people too. This goes deeper than that. It is about the very core of our country and the principles upon which we were founded. Jesus had his war with the religious people of his day. This is explained in the “Four Gospels” Mathew, Mark, Luke, and This is a side issue. I am just acknowledging what the skeptics will argue.

Prior to this train wreck, it looked like Obama and his cohorts were about to ramrod their entire socialist agenda upon us. Not so fast, baby. It sports terms it was all over but the shouting. Something happened on the way to this slam-dunk victory.

The catalyst that led to this mini-revolution is health care reform. I will not discuss the bill however the American people have finally came to their senses and realized that this bill would surely take away our freedoms and protections guaranteed under the Constitution.

This attack on our freedom was the final straw that pushed the American people over the edge into fighting for our God given rights instead of doing nothing. To paraphrase Rush Limbaugh, ” We are not out of the woods yet. It is not time pop the Champaign corks for well still have a long way to go.”

However, when one closely examines all of this animosity that has occurred over the past few weeks this clearly has God’s fingerprints all over it. God in his subtle way used health care reform to blow this baby up in attempt to stop our nation from going down this very dangerous path.

Many don’t want to hear that our problems are spiritual. We are fighting a very dangerous and subtle foe that will stop at nothing to destroy this nation in the guise of doing what is best for the greater good of man.

The single most important idea I have learned from my father, Rabbi, and Minister is that once you give up freedom you will never get it back. God is the source of our freedom. Without God’s blessing, we will surely perish.

When we turn away from God the Bible gives us some very stern warnings of what will happen to us as a nation. You can believe it or not however, history will illuminate the truth of what happens to a nation that disobeys God’s word. This is not about religion. It is about God’s word and following His word. When we as a nation follow God’s word, God freely shines His grace, and mercy upon us. Our history is a perfect example of God’s grace and mercy. When we don’t all we have to do is look at the current mess our country is in right now.

Genesis 6:5-13 King James Version, states: 5And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. 9These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. 10And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 11The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 2And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. 13And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

Numbers 14:28-36, King James Version states: 28Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you: 29Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward which have murmured against me. 30Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun. 31But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised. 32But as for you, your carcases, they shall fall in this wilderness. 33And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness. 34After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise. 35I the LORD have said, I will surely do it unto all this evil congregation, that are gathered together against me: in this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.

Exodus 6: 4-8 King James Version states:4And I have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers. 5And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my covenant. 6Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments: 7And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God: and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. 8And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it you for an heritage: I am the LORD.

Our founding fathers knew this simple truth. God is the source of all our freedom. Our founding fathers warned us of an over bearing federal government seeking to control over our lives. They set up the Constitution so the federal government would not be become a “Nanny State.”

James Madison wrote the following words on December 20, 1792 in the National Gazette: “Who are the best keepers of Liberty.”

Republican— The people themselves. The sacred trust can be no where so safe as in the hands most interested in preserving it. Anti-republican–The people are stupid, suspicious, licentious. They cannot safely trust themselves. When they have established government they should think of nothing but obedience, leaving the care of their liberties to their wiser rulers. Republican–Although all men are born free, and all nations might be so, yet too true it is, that slavery has been the general lot of the human race. Ignorant–they have been cheated; asleep–they have been surprised; divided–the yoke has been forced upon them. But what is the lesson? That because the people may betray themselves, they ought to give themselves up, blindfold, to those who have an interest in betraying them? Rather conclude that the people ought to be enlightened, to be awakened, to be united, that after establishing a government they should watch over it, as well as obey it. Anti-republican–You look at the surface only, where errors float, instead of fathoming the depths where truth lies hid. It is not the government that is disposed to fly off from the people; but the people that are ever ready to fly off from the government. Rather say then, enlighten the government, warn it to be vigilant, enrich it with influence, arm it with force, and to the people never pronounce but two words–Submission and Confidence. Republican–The centrifugal tendency then is in the people, not in the government, and the secret art lies in restraining the tendency, by augmenting the attractive principle of the government with all the weight that can be added to it. What a perversion of the natural order of things! To make power the primary and central object of the social system, and Liberty but its satellite. Anti-republican-The science of the stars can never instruct you in the mysteries of government. Wonderful as it may seem, the more you increase the attractive force of power, the more you enlarge the sphere of liberty; the more you make government independent and hostile towards the people, the better security you provide for their rights and interests. Hence the wisdom of the theory, which, after limiting the share of the people to a third of the government … establishes two grand hereditary orders … inveterately hostile to the rights and interests of the people, yet by a mysterious operation all combining to fortify the people in both. Republican–Mysterious indeed! But mysteries belong to religion, not to government; to the ways of the Almighty, not to the works of man. And in religion itself there is nothing mysterious to its author; the mystery lies in the dimness of the human sight. So in the institutions of man let there be no mystery, unless for those inferior beings endowed with a ray perhaps of the twilight vouchsafed to the first order of terrestrial creation. Anti-republican–You are destitute, I perceive, of every quality of a good citizen, or rather of a good subject. You have neither the light of faith nor the spirit of obedience. I denounce you to the government as an accomplice of atheism and anarchy.”

These very words were written 217 years ago. Madison described what is going on in our country today.

God blessed this country with abundant wealth and freedom now many are trying to destroy the fabric upon which this country is based. This is done in the name of progress. The Constitution and the beliefs and writings of such men as James Madison is deemed old fashioned and out of date by the intellectual elite. For modern problems are different from those of James Madison’s time and the time of the Bible.

The Bible is deemed irrelevant and out of date because it was written two thousand years ago. If the Bible is not true then why are people arguing about the Bible two thousand years later?

The stop sign has been held up. The warning salvo has been fired across the bow. We now know the truth. It is up to us to stop this march down the road to fascism.
