Mid-Term Matters

The Mid-Term Election Matter

Mid-term Elections Matter even with the election of President Trump in 2016 is the first effort in fifty-years in what he clearly states in his inaugural speech. “Today’s ceremony, however, has a very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people.1” The forceful opposition to this clear transfer back to Founder’s Intent for self-governance is the purposeful intent of the democrats and their socialists/neo-marxists collaborators.

The greatest fights for our Constitutional Republic are yet before US. The miscreants of the attacking ‘left’ are now fully engaged to topple every aspect of the Constitution and the Republic. With the confirmed appointment of Justice Kavanaugh they are conceding the loss of the position but are claiming through people like actress Milano, “we may have lost a political battle, but I do think we are winning the cultural battle.2” – In her interview on “Meet The Press” of all programs. This self-styled political genus uses the word ‘collective’ numerous times. Remember that language usage is 100% telling of ones ideologies.

Tolerance?

So what about all the ‘Tolerance’ shouting and coexistence stuff?

I have always and will continue to take the political and cultural engagements back to the roots of moral determination that was established in Foundational Biblical Reformation truth. This is where the Founders of the nation established the statement that “our Constitution is for a moral and virtuous people”. With this you may be asking yourself if what I just wrote has anything to do with the mid-terms, Kavanaugh and Culture Wars?

Let’s consider what we see in the streets of the Capital and all over the nation with “From the present state of society, we look back on the intolerance of former ages with a surprise, which does honor to humanity: but at the same time, it is to be feared, with a loftiness of self-complacency, which proclaims that the retrospect administers as much food to our vanity, as to our benevolence. The pendulum of fashion vibrating in morals, as in dress, from an extreme point to its opposite; we are now required to open the bosom of charity to every class of religious tenets, if we hope to be en- rolled among liberal Christians, or to escape the pains and penalties decreed against bigots.3” The reality that the ‘liberals’ have only begun to spin the untruths of morals, Christianity and Society is not anything new. We can go back in time only a couple hundred years to see that age old battle of the Culture War.

Under the guise of tolerance we hear the clamor for ‘fairness’, ‘equality’, ‘liberality’ and more that is in direct contrast to the real meanings of the words. Again we hear from Dr. Mason: “If we look a little closer at this affected liberality, we shall perceive that, exclusively of its tendency, the very attribute which it vaunts the loudest, universal tolerance., has no existence. The proof is short. No men are more impatient of contradiction in the affairs of common life, than these liberal thinkers; no men contend for their political Views with fiercer zeal, or deeper animosity. Why? Because human speculations are more certain than the truth of God? Or civil arrangements of higher moment than the concerns of a future world? That cannot be pretended.

“Why, then, do the bosoms of the these ” liberal” philosophers swell with rage against a political opponent? And surely no men – can pursue others with more contempt and rancor, than do they whomsoever they are pleased to stigmatize as bigots. Yet, what have the bigots done? By the nature of the case, they are under no obligation to be as condescending to a ‘liberal’ man, as this latter to them. He is bound by his profession to be as charitable to a bigot as to any other. , But the contrary is true. ” Bigot” is a brand of infamy; not less than ” heretic” or ” infidel,” and quite as freely applied, Serious as the subject is, one can hardly forbear smiling at the mistakes which we are apt to commit in estimating our own characters. The man who supposed himself inaccessible to flatter was not aware, till his acuter friend detected him, that this supposition was precisely the point in which his vanity was centred, and was assailable by the flatterer. As little do they, who plume themselves on their freedom from bigotry, suspect that their ” liberality” is the point on which they betray the very temper they denounce in others.”

Are you understanding that what is happening in our society and political environment is NOT New! This is and will be a constant fight for Truth, Culture, Christianity and our Constitutional Republic. I want to complete this historical thought before I jump back to the Mid-term Election. Please bare with me.

Continuing from Dr. Mason regarding liberalism and tolerance: “Touch this darling of theirs, and you will find that they have as much bigotry as other folk, There are no more decided bigots on earth, than those who are bigoted to liberality. The fact is, that modern liberality is of the same kind and spirit with the old heathen tolerance. One was at perfect liberty to worship his calf, provided another might burn incense to the queen of heaven. And thus Baal, and Jupiter, and Moloch, and Mithras, and all the rest of them, fraternized in the most liberal intercourse. “If you have but a god, no matter who or what; only do not interfere with your neighbors.” And it is very possible that, upon the same terms, Christians might, for a time, have fared easier than they did. But the moment they taught men to turn from these vanities to serve the living – God, the worshippers of Baal, and Jupiter, and Moloch, and the whole rabble of pagan deities, rushed upon them, and drenched the earth with their blood.”

Now here is the core to it all that we see happening again: Those that are anti-Christian are anti-Constitution since it is based on core Christian Principals. Dr. Mason continues: “So now : compliment my dogma, and I will compliment yours. “But let unbending truth fall in with the confederacy, and accost the members of it without ceremony. Let her arraign the carnality of one, the corruptness of another, and the unfaithfulness of a third. Let her deny, at once, the Christianity of all who reject the divinity and atonement of our Lord Jesus; or who, admitting both, live without the practical influence of either; and immediately the cry will be raised. “Bigot,” “fanatic”will start from a hundred mouths; and, short of open violence, as little mercy will be shown to wisdom’s children by modern, as by ancient toleration. Instead, therefore of a pure and effective benevolence, this liberality of the age is a mask drawn over the face of enmity to God’s holiest truth, and to all who espouse it.

The Mid-term

OK, I have to stop there or I will be editing in all fifty-four pages of the document. I will give you the link for your reading at the end of this post. So where are we?

The Mid-terms are of great significance not just for keeping our Constitution and the Republic but also for the continued fight to protect True Religious Liberty in the US. The Culture must at least gain as sense of reason if not more so its original and foundational perspective that is embedded with Christianity. In the end, the liberality of the socialists/neo-marxists isn’t about political ideologies. It is in fact about destroying Christianity and its impact on society and culture.

Don’t forget that Mid-term elections

They are key for Local Elections as in this 2016 radio program interview as well as the Levy issues referenced here and at the Geauga County TEA Party Web site blog as well as at the Lobbyists for Citizens blog.

I have to look at the Mid-term from the perspective of Dr. Mason with: “That ” love” which is ” without dissimulation,” wears no such guise. It consists in kind affections and offices. It can do men good without nattering their corruptions, or sanctifying their mistakes. It is he ” who converts a sinner from the error of his way, “not he who treats it as harmless, that “shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.” Between the incessant agitations of dispute, and the oblivious calm of indifference, there is a wide scope for the exercise of Christian forbearance.”

Ultimately the point is that we have historically covered every inch of the miscreants attacking the Foundations of our Liberty and Constitutional Republic. Our ancestors fought with prayer and moral determination to resist as well as put these evils in their place. Sam Adams after losing an election had this to say considering the voter and their ongoing responsibility: “I confess that I feel chagrind and am disappointed at the Preference they have given. But is an honest & virtuous People incapable of Error? They acted, you will say, with their Eyes open. They knew the different Characters, Abilities & Merit of the Candidates. But, they were deceivd with false Appearances for the Moment. A due Attention to the Administration of Government will enable them to measure the Capacity of him whom they have made the object of their present Choice. That Watchfulness, & Jealousy, which I still hold to be the best Security of the publick Liberty, will guard them against future Mistakes.”

WE must be watchful over those we elect to office.

This next quote from Sam Adams sums up the whole essence of this Mid-term Election: “”I was sorry to hear, that the Number of Votes returned, the last Time, did not amount to a Quarter of the Number of qualified Electors in the Commonwealth. The Choice of Legislators, Magistrates and Governors, is surely a Business of the greatest Moment, and claims the Attention of every Citizen. The Framers of our Constitution, while they gave due Attention to Political were not forgetful of Civil Liberty—that personal Freedom and those Rights of Property, which the meanest Citizen is intitled to, and the Security of which is the great End of political Society. It was not indeed their Province to make particular Laws for these Purposes. To do this, and to provide for the equal and impartial Execution of such Laws, agreeable to the Constitution, is the Duty of the Legislature. Hence every Citizen will see, and I hope will be deeply impressed with a Sense of it, how exceedingly important it is to himself, and how intimately the welfare of his Children is connected with it, that those who are to have a Share in making as well as in judging and executing the Laws should be Men of singular Wisdom and Integrity. Such as are conscious that they are deficient in either of these Qualities, should even TREMBLE at being named as Candidates! I hope the great Business of Elections will never be left by the Many, to be done by the Few; for before we are aware of it, that few may become the Engine of Corruption—the Tool of a Junto.—Heaven forbid! that our Countrymen should ever be byass’d in their Choice, by unreasonable Predilections for any man, or that an Attachment to the Constitution, as has been the Case in other Countries, should be lost in Devotion to Persons. The Effect of this would soon be, to change the Love of Liberty into the Spirit of Faction. Let each Citizen remember, at the Moment he is offering his Vote, that he is not making a Present or a Compliment to please an Individual, or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn Trusts in human Society, for which he is accountable to GOD and his Country.”

Time to do Better!

We must do better than the 1781 election that Sam Adams just spoke of. We need to get our neighbors, families and friends out to vote this November 6th!

7-7-18 Sam Adams and the Anti-federalists Vindicated

The Vindication of the Founders of the Nation is required even more so now in the congregation of the churches where Liberty in its totality once rang true.

As I was preparing for this program I received and email that has taken me down a completely different course than I intended. The article by Dr. Joel McDurmon title “Sam Adams to America: “I told you so.”” vindicates all that I have been doing these many years as Sam Adams as well as my diatribe that the Anti-federalists ‘Got It Right’! Great article so click on the link in this paragraph or in the References to read it.

With this past Wednesday being ‘Independence Day’ – I want to remind you of the word of Sam Adams as he was asked to give his perspective related to the Declaration of Independence. He spoke about this Action on August 1, 1776 – the day before the final signatures were affixed to the completed document. Continue reading

4-22-17 St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre to Trump: Policy Matters

Over the last two weeks I have been working on the various textual materials for SACPS.org from source writing about or directly by Sam Adams. I have been focusing on the topic of policy development. In doing this I had to do my standard ‘go down the rabbit hole’ in following the extensibility of Sam Adams knowledge base. During that journey is were I came to a comparison of Vindiciae Contra Tyrannos (translated: A Defense of Liberty Against Tyrants) and its similarity to “An supremo Magistratui resistere liceat, si aliter servari Respublica nequit?” – Sam Adams Masters Thesis translated “Whether it be lawful to resist the Supreme Magistrate, if the Commonwealth cannot be otherwise preserved?”

This then takes us into who and what many are in the US, and yes, even patriots fit the descriptions of my friend from the past Alex De Tocqueville. Yupper, He’s the first one to talk about the ‘sheeple!” We learn, that the socialist / communist of 1850 are the same as today and De Tocqueville cannot describe their tyranny and despotism in democracies or republics in the historic manner. No, he goes one further and describes our present government – “Elected Guardians.”

2-18-17 Centinel #1, Philip Dru, Kozak, Hydra’s in the Swamp

Centinel #1, Philip Dru, Kozak, Hydra’s in the Swamp

Forgive some of my diatribe today since I’m still getting over a really tough flu. With that, the simple reality of today’s program is that the Anti-federalists predicted exactly what is going on if we did not maintain a ‘moral and virtuous’ people. As I point out via Philip Dru and Kozak the evil has been making its way to dupe a great number of citizens for over 100 years.

We – Ourselves , and the churches in particular, have allowed this evil to become dominant. I wonder if anyone really cares? The battle is before us much like that of 1772 through 1783. Who will take up the mantle? How will the swamp be drained with such embedded evil? Continue reading

7-4-2015: Samuel Adams Speech About the Declaration

Yes, it is another July 4th holiday.  Although I believe that we should go back to declaring it the remembrance of “Independence Day!”  Samuel Adams goes back over a year to that April 19th at Lexington Bridge and can distinctly recall the first shot fired for Liberty’s sake.

I must always go back to the speech that Sam Adams gave on August 1st 1776.  His words should be the ones that stand for the establishment of truth and fact in setting the stage for the American Revolution!  Who better than Adams, The Father of The American Revolution, to dissect, encourage, rebuke and remonstrate the purposes of the Independence for the new American States.

Please listen to what Adams had to say and you can also download the speech in pdf format as well.

6-20-15 Program: The Shadows Of Tyranny Prt. 2

This is a must continuation of Last Weeks program!  We take on the discussion again with the Anti-federalist perspective on how the Constitution of 1787 could lead to the usurpation, despotism and tyranny that we are living under in our present time.

We hear from Mercy Otis Warren in particular and learn that it is a lack of morality in governance that opens the flood gates for tyrants.

We are living in a tyranny that only a movement of God, as in the First Great Awakening, can change the tide towards slavery of the citizenry.

6-13-15 Program: The Shadows Of Tyranny

Moderns do not understand Tyranny!

In this program I not only give the definition but show how we are, without question, living under tyranny.

Tyranny: The use of arbitrary Power.

Governor Bradford in his history of Massachusetts, says : ” In these patriotic measures to resist the encroachment of arbitrary power, the citizens of Boston seem to have been the first. They instructed their Representatives in May, 1764.” the signal which first called for combined action against an act of tyranny,

John Lock – Sec. 199. AS usurpation is the exercise of power, which another hath a right to; so tyranny is the exercise of power beyond right, which no body can have a right to. And this is making use of the power any one has in his hands, not for the good of those who are under it, but for his own private separate advantage. When the governor, however intitled, makes not the law, but his will, the rule; and his commands and actions are not directed to the preservation of the properties of his people, but the satisfaction of his own ambition, revenge, covetousness, or any other irregular passion.
