Warnings about abandoning "the Republic for which it stands" from the same men who established the Republic!


"We the People" or "We the sheeple?"

We the People" or "We the sheeple?"
"The republic was not established by cowards, and cowards will not preserve it." --American writer Elmer Davis (1800-1858)
"The secret of Happiness is Freedom, and the secret of Freedom, Courage."
~Thucydides
"Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God." Thomas Jefferson
A vote for any Democrat or RINO is a vote to “fundamentally transform America” from a Republic to Marxism.
"A people that values its privileges above its principles, soon loses both." Dwight D. Eisenhower
"The U. S. Constitution doesn't guarantee happiness, only the pursuit of it. You have to catch up with it yourself." Benjamin Franklin 
 

"Death is more eligible than slavery. A free-born people are not required by the religion of Jesus Christ to submit to tyranny, but may make use of such power as God has given them to recover and support their liberties..."  The men of Marlborough, Massachusetts who took part in the Boston Tea Party  

  • "A government can't control the economy without controlling people. And they know when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose." --Ronald Reagan

  • "Government is the great fiction through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else." 19th-century political economist Frederic Bastiat

  • "A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to complacency; From complacency to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage." (This unverified quotation has been attributed to Tytler, most notably as part of a longer piece which began circulating on the Internet shortly after the 2000 U.S. Presidential Election[9]. While it is unverified, a) It may still contain true statements. b) It may still have been written by Tytler: )

  • "There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations." --James Madison, speech at the Virginia Ratifying Convention, 1788

  • If we capitulate and say “we can’t change government,” and “the obstacles are too many,” then consider America WE are leaving the next generation. Consider the “Victory or Death” commitment of the Revolutionary War soldiers they had for the generations to follow – you.  

  • "Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God." Thomas Jefferson  

  • Distinguishing between Patriots and cowards: Samuel Adams, said: "Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say, 'What should be the reward of such sacrifices?' ... If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom...crouch down and lick the hands, which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!" 

  • We must continuously contact our elected officials with our views on any and all issues you might otherwise just murmur and complain about only to those around you. Either step up or shut up, because those who wish to "fundamentally transform America" (Barack Obama) from a Republic to Marxism and tyranny are gradually doing so.

  • "It is in the interest of tyrants to reduce the people to ignorance and vice. For they cannot live in any country where virtue and knowledge prevail." - Samuel Adams

  • "If you neglect or renounce that religion taught and commanded in holy scriptures, think no more of freedom, peace, and happiness...." A PRAYER FOR OUR NATION AND THE PEOPLE - Delivered by Reverend Samuel Langdon, 1787

  • The United States was the first, and some say the only, nation created through the belief that God, not government, has given to all men certain unalienable rights, and that government exists for the purpose of protecting those rights. For this reason, the government is a servant of the people, not the other way around. The Constitution and Bill of Rights were written to ensure the understanding and protection of those basic rights. -- Rick Joyner

  • "Everyone wants to live at the expense of the state. They forget that the state lives at the expense of everyone." Frederic Bastiat

  • "The first and almost the only Book deserving of universal attention is the Bible. Our Constitution was made for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other." John Quincy Adams

  • "If Virtue & Knowledge are diffused among the People, they will never be enslav'd. This will be their great Security.” ..."A general dissolution of the principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but once they lose their virtue, they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader." ..."If we would enjoy this gift of Heaven, let us become a virtuous people." —Massachusetts Governor Samuel Adams, letter to James Warren, February 12, 1779

  • "To form a new Government, requires infinite care, and unbounded attention; for if the foundation is badly laid the superstructure must be bad." --George Washington, letter to John Augustine Washington, 1776

  • Without boundaries there is no structure, without structure there is < chaos.

  • Complacency begets apathy. Apathy begets slavery.

  • "The deterioration of every government begins with the decay of the principles on which it was founded." --Charles-Louis De Secondat

  • "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." --Benjamin Franklin

  • The un-Democratic Party has become the Marxist Party of the UN. America must decide whether to keep US elected officials as servants or become servants of unelected UN officials.

  • James Madison, the Primary author of the Constitution wrote, "The belief in a God All Powerful wise and good, is so essential to the moral order of the world and to the happiness of man, that arguments which enforce it cannot be drawn from too many sources nor adapted with too much solicitude to the different characters and capacities impressed with it." (In a letter to Frederick Beasley.)

  • On the other hand, Progressive selective and discriminatory "Separation of Church and State," has hypocritically morphed into a secular State becoming "church" of "We the Sheeple," and "the progressive "opiate of the masses." 

  • "We the People" must either "reprove and rebuke" Marxism or become slaves to tyranny.

  • Martin Luther King Jr. - "He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it." ..."In the end we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends."  

  • William Halsey - "There are no extraordinary men... just extraordinary circumstances that ordinary men are forced to deal with."

  • Helen Keller - "Science may have found a cure for most evils, but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all: the apathy of human beings."  

  • Frederick Douglass  -"If there is no struggle, there is no progress."

  • "Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption." — James Garfield (1831-1881) Twentieth president of the United States  

  • "Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views." --commentator, author and founder of National Review William F. Buckley Jr. (1925-2008)

  • "Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word: equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude." -- Alexis de Tocqueville, 19th century historian

  • Warnings: Distinguishing between Patriots and cowards - Biblically Correct or Politically Correct? Liberty from God or Mandated by Government? Republic or Marxism?

"A republic, if you can keep it." Benjamin Franklin

"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to complacency; From complacency to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage." (This unverified quotation has been attributed to Tytler)

"The republic was not established by cowards, and cowards will not preserve it." --American writer Elmer Davis (1800-1858) "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." John Adams (1798)

"The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time; the hand of force may destroy, but cannot disjoin them. ... Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever." Thomas Jefferson


This is a test: If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, Marxism or a Republic.
If a Republican doesn't like guns, he doesn’t buy one.
If a Democrat doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.  
 If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat.
If a Democrat is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.    
If a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a Democrat is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.    
If a Republican is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A Democrat wonders who is going to take care of him.    
If a Republican doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
Democrats demand that those they don't like be shut down.    
If a Republican is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
A Democrat non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.  
If a Republican decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
A Democrat demands that the rest of us pay for his.   If a Republican reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh. 
A Democrat will delete it because he's "offended".  

The problem is brainlock, not gridlock  - "The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."

What Can The Righteous Do? (Psalms 11)
2 Chronicles 7:14
  "If my people..." Citizens of the Kingdom of God
  "...which are called by My Name,..." Christians
  "...shall humble themselves,..." Worthy?
  "...and pray, and seek my face,..." Power of God required
  "and turn from their wicked ways;..." Repent (choose this day whom you will serve, self & flesh or God & Spirit?)
  "...then will I hear from heaven,..." If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.
  "...and will forgive their sin,..." And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
  "...and will heal their land." Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people.

President Reagan said conservatism is a "three-legged stool." Social conservatism (family values), fiscal conservatism (the free market), and defense & foreign policy (peace through strength). When one leg is removed the entire structure collapses. Whoever undermines family values undermines America. A Nation can't have a sound economy or an effective national defense without strong families.

Pastors taken to task for political apathy 'What we have in America is a preacher problem' By Drew Zahn © 2010 WorldNetDaily Rick Scarborough MIAMI – America has gone "from one nation under God to a nation at war with God," said Rick Scarborough, president of Vision America, at WND's "Taking America Back Conference." And who's to blame? According to a pair of speakers at the Miami confab, one of most significant answers is also one the most uncomfortable for Christians. "As the church goes, so goes the nation; as the pastor goes, so goes the church." Scarborough said, "What we have in America is a preacher problem." Scarborough, himself a former Southern Baptist minister, told the audience his story of recognizing the need for pastors to snap out of political complacency and get involved in the cultural war for the soul of the nation. He had attended a sexual education presentation at his daughter's high school in the 1990s, only to discover a message of sexual license and perversity that shocked him. When he brought a transcript of the presentation to his church, the building was filled with people equally stunned. Shortly thereafter, Scarborough explained at "Taking America Back," he began to free his congregation from excessive church responsibilities to take up civic duties. Members of his church were elected to the school board and city council and began to reassert Christian values in the public arena.

If it be asked what is to be the consequence, in case the Congress shall misconstrue this part of the Constitution, and exercise powers not warranted by its true meaning, I answer, the same as if they should misconstrue or enlarge any other power vested in them; as if the general power had been reduced to particulars, and any one of these were to be violated; the same, in short, as if the State legislatures should violate the irrespective constitutional authorities.
