On this date in 1787, the U.S. Constitution was adopted. 39 delegates from 12 of the 13 colonies (Rhode Island did not send a representative) affixed their signatures to the greatest civil document ever conceived by men. Famous patriots such as George Washington, Roger Sherman, Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Franklin, Robert Morris, Gouverneur Morris, James Madison, George Clymer, and Abraham Baldwin were among this gallant group.

Under divine Providence, it has been allegiance to the Constitution that has preserved our liberties and protected our very way of life. Most of the problems, failings, and frustrations that plague our nation today are due to the propensity of our civil magistrates to ignore or blatantly abuse constitutional government. Accordingly, fidelity to the Constitution would likely repair most of the damage done by this neglect.

It is the responsibility of a free people to jealously guard the principles upon which their liberties are predicated. For citizens of these United States, the principles that duly protect our liberties are contained in the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence. Therefore, it is incumbent upon every American to studiously familiarize himself with these documents.

Furthermore, it is the duty of every American to stubbornly hold their elected representative, at every level of government, accountable to his or her oath to the Constitution. The U.S. Constitution is the contract that every civil magistrate makes with “We the People.” Failure of an elected representative to fulfill that oath to the Constitution should be met with swift and certain rejection by the people at the polls. Nothing else should matter. Republican or Democrat, man or woman, black or white, believer or unbeliever: it is the responsibility of every civil magistrate to submit to the restrictions and instructions of the Constitution.

Our Constitution (along with the Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence) was formed, framed, and founded upon the eternal principles contained in Natural Law, which proceeds forth from man’s Creator and Redeemer. No people in human history have ever been so blessed as the people of the United States to inherit such a legacy. Such a heritage serves only to heighten our own responsibility, as “unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required.”

On this Constitution Day of 2008, may this generation of Americans live up to its responsibility to valiantly bequeath to our posterity the same legacy of freedom that was so bravely and miraculously bequeathed to us. For the sake of freedom, for the love of our children, and for the safety and security of our republic, may each of us determine for ourselves–and commit to Almighty God–to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Thank You, Dr. Ron Paul For Your Endorsement by Presidential Candidate Chuck Baldwin

Wow! This is great news! I almost feared that there might be division
between Ron Paul supporters and Chuck Baldwin’s supporters. Now that he
has endorsed Chuck that may give him the boost he needs. His message
couldn’t have come at a better time. If people are truly fed up with all
this financial tyranny then they will vote for Chuck. If not, then they
are not sincere and will deserve every bit of hardship they get. If the
majority despise the truth then no mercy will be shown to them. Here now
everyone, especially christians can promote a candidate that is not the
lesser of evils and not partake in the deeds of darkness. So by how the
votes come out we will know if this nation is done for or not. But
besides christians there are still many heathen that pride themselves as
nonconformists. We will see if they are for real or not too. Everyone
benefits from Chucks presidency, whether they are religious or not. I
love the way he came out and denounced religious tyranny in this
message, proving that he is for real and not one of these satanic
dominionists. We have to really pray that Chuck succeeds. I know there
are a lot of bushbots, like those of my family that will never vote for
any but a republican. They are the ultimate hypocrites. They are like
those who they condemn. They say that those like their own parents that
were traditional democrats were bound in traditionalism. Look who is
talking. I have heard these hypocrites says that they would vote for the
right man no matter what party they belong to. I know that to be a total
and complete lie. But still I hope many are not as far gone as they.
They are a lost cause. Sorry to load you down with all these messages. I
know with all that is going on you probably have to keep up with an
awful lot corcerning this financial meltdown. I urge you to put Chuck’s
message here on your blog to help get out the true alternative vote in
this election. This is our only chance to really change things for the
better. If we get the usual scum we may not have a country or even
elections anymore.

Yesterday, September 22, Congressman Ron Paul publicly gave me his
endorsement for the office of President of the United States. In his blog at
the Campaign for Liberty web site, he said, “I’m supporting Chuck Baldwin,
the Constitution Party candidate.” (See the complete statement at:
http://www.campaignforliberty.com/blog/?p=582 )

Obviously, I could not be more delighted and honored to have Dr. Paul’s
endorsement. I called him last evening and thanked him personally. And now I
want to thank him publicly.

I am fully aware that Dr. Paul was under considerable pressure from various
groups that were actively soliciting his support. I can honestly say that I
never lobbied Dr. Paul for his endorsement. He knew I would be thrilled to
have it, but I have too much respect for Ron Paul to be so presumptuous as
to expect him to endorse me. I completely understood his neutrality. He has
strong ties to both the Libertarian and Constitution parties–not to mention
the obvious fact that he is a ten-term Republican Congressman with much
support from the Republican Party in his home district.

I was happy to support Ron Paul during the Republican primaries, because I
believe in the same principles. I personally campaigned for him in several
states and in this column. And I asked (or expected) nothing in return. In
fact, I have stated this publicly, time and again: if Ron Paul had won the
Republican nomination for President, I would not be running. I would still
be supporting Ron Paul.

I am running for President because the Republican Party rejected Ron’s
Paul’s message of constitutional government, fiscal responsibility, and
non-interventionism. Therefore, someone had to pick up the mantle and carry
this message into the general election. The Constitution Party asked me to
be their standard-bearer in order to bring this message to the American
people in November. So, here I am. And now, Ron Paul’s endorsement is
further substantiation that the message of constitutional government will
not die in 2008. The American people still have a real choice instead of the
big-government, globalist, interventionist, “big box” party candidates, John
McCain and Barack Obama.

Ron Paul’s message is my message; Ron Paul’s fight is my fight.

I want to return America to constitutional government. “The powers not
delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to
the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
(Amendment X) I believe that, and will govern the Executive branch of the
federal government accordingly.

My sworn oath to the Tenth Amendment means I would dismantle the Patriot Act
and restore law enforcement to the states and local governments, where it
rightly belongs. Yes, this includes the so-called “war on drugs” and the
so-called “war on terror.” No more warrantless searches and seizures. No
more eavesdropping on Americans’ phone calls, or collecting Americans’
emails, or spying on American citizens without court order and oversight. No
more stripping Americans of their constitutional rights in the name of
“national security.” In addition, I would use every power and authority
vested to my office to preserve and protect the right of the people to keep
and bear arms. And, yes, I will immediately restore Posse Comitatus. As
President, I want to protect America from Washington, D.C., as much I want
to protect it from foreign powers.

I will also take the words of the Declaration of Independence seriously,
where it states, “That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be
Free and Independent States.” This means the day I am sworn in as President
of the United States, the New World Order comes crashing down! The NAFTA
superhighway is dead. The North American Union is dead. I will work to
eliminate NAFTA, CAFTA, GATT, and the WTO. The FTAA is DOA. I will not
expend tax dollars for the support of the United Nations.

Furthermore, I will take my oath to the Constitution seriously, when it
states that one of the express purposes of the federal government is to
“repel Invasions.” This means we will secure America’s borders, because the
illegal immigration crisis is more than mere immigration: it is an invasion,
and I will stop it! Even if I have to send the U.S. Army to the borders, we
will put a stop to this invasion of illegal aliens. I will also aggressively
prosecute those employers who knowingly hire illegals. And did I mention
that my first day in office is Border Patrol Agents Ramos and Compean’s last
day in prison? I will personally open the prison doors and restore to these
men their freedom. I will also give them their jobs back (with pay), if they
want them. And one more item on this point: my first day of office is also
U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton’s last day on the job.

I also share Ron Paul’s concerns for the way the two major parties have
allowed the United States to become a meddlesome, interventionist,
nation-building empire for the sake of satisfying the greedy machinations of
international bankers and power-hungry politicians. I will not only bring
our troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan, but also from most of the other
130 nations that currently house U.S. forces. I will end foreign aid. I will
get the U.S. out of NATO. It is past time for the European states to defend
themselves. It is time for us to stop sticking our nose in every other
nation’s business and start taking care of the United States. The Warfare
State will kill us. Global empires are not sustainable. I repeat: global
empires are not sustainable. If history teaches anything, it teaches that.

Furthermore, the Bush doctrine of pre-emptive war is over, when I become
President. Because I will take my oath to the Constitution seriously, I
would never send troops to invade and occupy a foreign country without a
Declaration of War by Congress. In dealing with rogue terrorist
organizations such as al Qaeda, I will seek letters of Marque and Reprisal
from Congress, which would give me the authority to use whatever special
and/or private forces are necessary to seek out and destroy those who desire
our hurt.

And even though I am a born again Christian (as is Ron Paul), I would take
my responsibility to protect the religious liberty of every American
seriously. People have the right to worship God (or not worship God)
according to the dictates of their own conscience. Whether one is Baptist,
Catholic, Mormon, or agnostic, people have the right to practice their faith
as they see fit. I am absolutely dedicated to preserving religious liberty.
Religious tyranny is as evil as political or social tyranny. And, as I will
be no man’s slave, neither will I be any man’s master.

I also share Ron Paul’s commitment to the sanctity of life. When I become
President, I will use the bully pulpit of the White House to press Congress
to pass Dr. Paul’s Sanctity of Life Act, which would overturn Roe v. Wade
and end abortion-on-demand. On this topic, the GOP is especially
hypocritical. The Republican Party controlled the entire federal government
for six years and did nothing to save the life of a single unborn child.
Saving unborn babies from the abortionists’ scalpel is more than rhetoric
with me, however.

Another area of agreement with Ron Paul is my philosophy of economics. Dr.
Paul has been predicting the current financial meltdown in this country for
years. And when all is done, the current bailout being proposed will do more
harm than good. The problem is, America’s leaders have rejected sound money
policies for years, and the chickens are coming home to roost.

As President, I would seek to overturn the 16th Amendment, eliminate the
Internal Revenue Service, and disband the Federal Reserve. I would lead the
charge to return America to sound money principles. I would seek to reduce
federal spending to constitutional levels by eliminating those same federal
departments that Newt Gingrich promised to eliminate in his Contract with
America back in 1994 (and then failed to do). I would seek to eliminate the
Departments of Education, Commerce, Energy, etc. I would demand that
Congress pass a balanced budget and that we stop deficit spending.

Neither John McCain nor Barack Obama will do any of the above. If he were
President, Dr. Paul would do it, however, and so would I.

Needless to say, I am both humbled and honored that Ron Paul would place
enough faith in me that he would endorse me for President. I can think of no
higher compliment to my candidacy. I here and now publicly thank him for
this vote of confidence. I know my Vice Presidential running mate, Darrell
Castle (a former Marine Corps officer and Vietnam veteran), joins me in
inviting all of Dr. Paul’s supporters to help us take the message of
constitutional government into the general election on November 4. Thank
you.

McCain and Susan Palin: How Can They Walk Together Unless They Be Agreed? By Pastor Chuck Baldwin

Posted by soldierservant on September 4, 2008

This is interesting. I didn’t know any republican that opposed the war
except for Ron Paul. But Chuck is absolutely right. This was just what I
was saying recently about the scripture that says bad company corrupts
good character (1Cor.15:33). As far as Palin being able to run on the
ticket in the future as a true independent conservative, not happening.
Chuck should realize that because we all know that the corrupt power
structure of both parties will not allow that. Look how they got away
with demonizing Ron Paul and all the idiots ate it up as though it was
gospel. The fools fall for every trick in the book. Even Chuck proves
their predictability. Look at how the neocons schmucks used Joe
Lieberman for the first day of their convention. They have to use a
democrat, and the very same one at that that would have destroyed
McCain’s chances. How dumb can you get? But apparently it works for all
the kool-aid drinkers out there.

John McCain’s selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his Vice
Presidential running mate was exactly what he needed to do to make himself
competitive against Barack Obama in the November elections. (For the record,
I predicted three weeks ago that Palin would be his choice.) As a result
(and right on cue), conservatives throughout the country–especially
Christian conservatives–are now fully supporting McCain’s candidacy for
President. Even James “I-will-never-vote-for-John-McCain” Dobson has
endorsed McCain.

By all appearances, Governor Palin is a true conservative. She is pro-life.
She is pro-Second Amendment. Alaska is one of only two states (Vermont is
the other) that recognize the right of their citizens to carry handguns
without a Concealed Carry Weapon (CCW) permit. She was rightly critical of
the invasion of Iraq, once calling it a “war for oil.” Speaking of oil, she
believes we should drill for oil in Alaska and throughout the U.S., and is
critical of the federal government for allowing America to become dependent
upon foreign oil for our energy needs. She even heaped praises upon the
Republican that Republicans love to hate: Ron Paul. Beyond that, Lynette
Clark, the chairman of the Alaskan Independence Party (the party under which
yours truly is on the Presidential ballot this year) reports that Sarah
Palin was a member of the party back in the early 90s. This is very
encouraging in that the AIP is a patriotic, states’ rights party that holds
strong sentiments opposing the New World Order propensities of the two major
parties. In essence, Sarah Palin is everything that John McCain isn’t. Which
leads to the question that was asked long ago by the Hebrew prophet: “Can
two walk together, except they be agreed?”

When the no-compromise constitutionalist, Ron Paul, was asked by CNN’s Wolf
Blitzer if he would consider being John McCain’s running mate, he said no.
His reason for that was that should McCain do something fundamentally
counter to his constitutional convictions–such as bombing Iran without a
Declaration of War (or other possible unconstitutional actions that Paul
knows McCain is predisposed to)–he would have to resign. Knowing this, he
(Paul) could not in good conscience accept a McCain invitation to join his
ticket (not that McCain would ever ask him to be his running mate; Ron was
not even invited to participate in the Republican convention, for Pete’s
sake).

Herein lies the problem for Sarah Palin. How can a principled conservative
support the policies and actions of an unprincipled globalist such as John
McCain? As Vice President, Palin will be required to promote and defend
McCain’s big-government, liberal, and globalist plans. For example, what
will she do when John McCain proposes amnesty for millions of illegal
aliens, which he is certain to do? What will she do when McCain proposes to
close gun shows, or at least the private sale of firearms at gun shows? What
will she do when he proposes to increase federal spending for abortion
providers (which he has done numerous times as senator)? What will she do
when he promotes federal spending for embryonic stem cell research? What
will she do when John McCain proliferates Bush’s police state machinations
by expanding the Patriot Act and similar legislation? What will Palin do
when McCain decides to nuke Iran (and who knows what else), not only without
a Declaration of War by Congress, but also without provocation or
justification? What will she do as John McCain expands the Security and
Prosperity Partnership with Canada and Mexico? What will she do as McCain
opens the door of the NAFTA superhighway and the North American Union? What
will she do as John McCain allows the United Nations to dictate and
manipulate America’s foreign policy? Again, can two walk together except
they be agreed?

Let’s face it: John McCain is using Sarah Palin as inducement to trick
conservatives into accepting his liberal, big-government, globalist
candidacy. And, sadly, it is working.

As I have said before, today’s national Christian leaders are among the most
gullible people on the planet. They are so desperate to be invited to sit at
the king’s table that they will compromise practically any principle. But
accepting John McCain was a not only a bitter pill, it was a BIG pill, one
they could not get down without a major dose of syrup. And that is exactly
what Governor Palin brings to the table: sweet syrup to help conservatives
swallow John McCain.

Unfortunately, the things that make Palin so attractive (her conservative
principles) are the things that she will be forced to surrender in order to
be John McCain’s running mate. The best thing that can happen to Sarah Palin
is for John McCain to lose the November election. This would allow her to go
into the 2012 elections as perhaps the Republican Presidential frontrunner.
If McCain wins in November, and Palin is forced to serve at the pleasure of
this globalist insider for four years, she will be forever ruined as a
genuine constitutional conservative. Remember, “No man can serve two
masters.” One cannot be faithful to the Constitution and a constitutional
apostate such as John McCain at the same time. That is an absolute
impossibility.

What our conservative friends need to wake up to is the depth of duplicity
and wickedness that permeates Washington politics (in both major parties)
today. There is nothing that these globalist insiders at the Council on
Foreign Relations (of which John McCain is a longtime member) will not do to
fulfill their power-mad plans. There is nothing too evil, too sinister, or
too iniquitous, including using, abusing, chewing up and then spitting out
good people such as Sarah Palin. Even more unfortunate and sad is the fact
that the James Dobsons of this world are too blind to see it.

If I Were President By Pastor Chuck Baldwin

Posted by soldierservant on May 6, 2008

This column is archived at
http://www.chuckbaldwinlive.com/c2008/cbarchive_20080502.html

Due to my frequent criticisms of President George W. Bush, I am often asked what I would do if I were President of these United States. This column will serve as an attempt to answer that question.

If I were President, I would begin the process of safely extracting our troops from Iraq. In the first place, our troops are no longer fighting a war, they are an occupation force, which occupies a sovereign country. And this is being done without a Declaration of War. The Iraqi people resent our occupation as much as we would resent another nation stronger than ours invading and occupying America. If such a thing happened to our beloved country, I’m sure many of us would also become “insurgents.”

In the second place, the invasion and occupation of Iraq was absolutely unnecessary. Instead of sacrificing more than 4,000 American lives and the lives of tens of thousands of Iraqi citizens (not to mention some 2-3 trillion dollars), President Bush should have supported Ron Paul’s bill, H.R. 3076, the September 11 Marque and Reprisal Act of 2001. This is the constitutional way to deal with rogue terrorist organizations. This is the way President Thomas Jefferson responded to the Barbary pirates.

According to Congressman Paul, “A letter of marque and reprisal is a constitutional tool specifically designed to give the President the authority to respond with appropriate force to those non-state actors who wage aggression against the United States while limiting his authority to only those responsible for the atrocities of that day. Such a limited authorization is consistent with the doctrine of just war and the practical aim of keeping Americans safe while minimizing the costs in blood and treasure of waging such an operation.”

Had President Bush responded in this manner, tens of thousands of lives would have been saved, trillions of dollars would not have needed to be spent, Osama bin Laden and most of his fellow terrorists would likely be dead, and we would not be bogged down in a nightmarish military quagmire in Iraq. And, if I were President, this is exactly how I would handle terrorist organizations such as al Qaeda.

Furthermore, it is absolutely ludicrous to say we are fighting a war on terror half way around the world when we refuse to secure our borders and ports. If I were President, I would immediately seal our borders. I would also see to it that employers in America who knowingly hire illegal aliens are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. In plain language: any employer who consciously hires illegal aliens would go to jail. They would not pass Go; they would not collect $200; they would go straight to jail.

By sealing the borders and by cutting off the money supply to illegal aliens, the problem of illegal immigration would dry up. As it is, we have no idea how many potential terrorists–not to mention violent gang members such as MS-13–have snuck (and are sneaking) through our borders.

And speaking of illegal immigration, as President, I would enforce our visa rules. This means anyone who overstays their visa or otherwise violates U.S. law is immediately deported. There would be no “path to citizenship” given to any illegal alien. That means no amnesty. Not in any shape, manner, or form. I would not allow tax dollars to be used to pay for illegal aliens’ education, social services, or medical care. As President, I would end birthright citizenship for illegal aliens. There would be no “anchor babies” during my administration.

If I were President, I would use the bully pulpit of the White House to encourage Congress to pass Congressman Ron Paul’s Sanctity of Life Act. In short, this bill would do two things: First, it would declare that unborn babies are persons under the law. Second, under the authority of Article. III. Section. 2. of the U.S. Constitution, it would remove abortion from the jurisdiction of the Court. In essence, this bill would immediately overturn Roe v. Wade and end legalized abortion.

Republicans tout themselves as being “pro-life.” Yet, the GOP controlled both houses of Congress and the White House for six years and did absolutely nothing to overturn Roe or end abortion-on-demand. Under my administration, we could end legal abortion in a matter of days, not decades. And if Congress refused to pass Dr. Paul’s bill, I would use the constitutional power of the Presidency to deny funds to protect abortion clinics. Either way, legalized abortion ends when I take office.

On the subject of foreign policy, as President, I would end foreign aid. I would also end the current infatuation with nation-building, empire-building, and interventionism. America is not the world’s policeman. Neither are our military personnel the personal militia of the United Nations.

Remember that President Bush told the U.N. in 2003 that the reason we invaded Iraq was for the purpose of securing the “peace and credibility of the United Nations.” (I lie not; that is what he said.) President Bush also placed the U.S. back under UNESCO in spite of the fact that President Reagan had heroically taken the U.S. out from under that sinister organization.

I am sure that readers recall that the U.N. Charter was authored by a Soviet communist agent (Alger Hiss) and that the U.S. has been fighting wars for the U.N. ever since the organization was created back in 1945.

Speaking of the United Nations, as President, I would withhold funds from the support of the United Nations. In other words, I would get the U.S. out of the U.N. Beyond that, when I move into the White House, the U.N.’s rent is up! They move out of New York City post haste.

By the same token, there is absolutely no reason for us to be in NATO. We should not be antagonizing Russia by attempting to expand NATO. There is no reason why Russia could not become a friend and ally of the United States. Free and fair trade with Russia and a noninterventionist foreign policy in Europe would do much to endear American interests to Russia. To insist on expanding and empowering NATO only serves to further alienate Russia and drive her to make alliances with Communist China.

Speaking of China, it is time that we recognize the very serious threat that China poses to the peace and security of the United States. Our trade practices serve only to allow corporate America to continue to invest in what will surely become an albatross around the neck of our well-being. We must discontinue the practice of allowing China to export its cheap products to the U.S. with no protection for America’s jobs and manufacturing, not to mention the lack of protection for our safety. This must stop, and it will stop when I become President. “Free trade” will no longer mean a free ride for Red China.

Furthermore, as President, I would take the preservation of our nation’s sovereignty and independence extremely seriously. This means that the burgeoning North American Union is dead on arrival the day I am sworn in as President. Gone, too, is the NAFTA superhighway. And for that matter, I would lead the United States out of NAFTA and CAFTA altogether. And any prospect for the FTAA would be dead as well.

As President, I would be the best friend that gun owners (and lawful gun dealers), homeschoolers, and veterans ever had in the White House. These are three of the most persecuted, harassed, or overlooked groups of people in the country. But not if I were President.

There is no reason why our veterans should wait for weeks and months to receive the medical care they need. It is disgraceful that we would ask our brave men and women of the U.S. armed forces to fight our country’s battles and then leave them to pretty much fend for themselves when it comes to receiving adequate health care. I would make taking care of our veterans an extremely high priority, if I were President.

If I were President, I would also do everything in my power to locate and retrieve any and all MIAs. I personally believe that there are hundreds of our servicemen who are yet being held against their will in various parts of the world. I would make finding them and bringing them home of utmost priority, if I were President.

On the home front, if I were President, I would end corporate welfare. I would also work to disband the Department of Energy (along with the Department of Education and many other federal departments). There is absolutely no reason for us to be dependent upon OPEC. There is enough gas and oil under the soil of Alaska (not to mention the Dakotas and the Gulf of Mexico) to meet the energy needs of the United States for the next 150-200 years. There is also no reason that gas should cost more than $1.50 a gallon (which is about what it was before Bush became President).

We must begin drilling for the domestic oil that we know exists; we must build more refineries and nuclear power plants. There is no reason why the United States cannot be mostly energy independent. It is time we started putting the people and interests of the United States ahead of the CEOs and interests of international corporations.

Lastly, if I were President, I would work feverishly to overturn the Sixteenth Amendment, which would repeal the Income Tax. And, no, I would not promote a national sales tax. That would be disastrous! Can you imagine what a 30% sales tax would do to the cost of EVERYTHING? Plus, give politicians a national sales tax to increase and just imagine what kind of percent that would grow into!

I would also work to repeal the “death tax,” inheritance taxes, and property taxes. The American people are already paying somewhere between 30% and 40% of their income to Uncle Sam. It must stop. We are bankrupting our country with this incessant and burdensome tax system. In addition, I would work to expunge the Federal Reserve and to restore the American economy to sound money.

Now, I hear people say, That’s easy for you to say; you are not a candidate for President. Ah, but now I am.

Last week, in its national nominating convention in Kansas City, Missouri, the Constitution Party nominated me as its 2008 Presidential candidate. Party delegates nominated me over Ambassador Alan Keyes by a margin of 74% to 24%. Therefore, I am now a candidate for President of these United States.

Pastor Chuck Baldwin: A Two-Party Death Grip

Posted by soldierservant on February 15, 2008

http://www.chuckbaldwinlive.com/subscribe.php

It is a great point that he brought out about George Washington warning
against lockstepping to a two party system. What I’ve hear is that both
George Washington and Abe Lincoln were masons. In fact the bible that
the presidents are sworn in by is Washington’s masonic bible. Maybe that
explains why we never get any true christians in office. Ours seem to be
an ungodly system that caters and is led by the ungodly. It is proved by
how it has corrupted the churches. Nothing has corrupted the churches
like politics has. Of course it also factors in with greed and those in
love with the corruption of this world, which is basically all the same
thing. In this Chuck also mentions James Dobson, who is tied in with
that newager Syung Moon. If people just look a little deeper at our
religious right leaders they will realize that they are all imposters
and why they go along with this corrupt system. I have a name for all of
them: “NEOCONS.” This is why people really need to wake up and be sure
you know who you are following lest you partake in the deeds of
darkness, knowingly or unknowingly. Jesus said that the blind lead the
blind and both fall in the ditch (hell). That indicates that ignorance
will not save you or justify you. Those who blindly go along with this
corrupt system are no different than the heathen that are blind to their
own evil. There will be a price for those who are not sincere in truly
serving God. Most of these popular religious leaders are tied in with
newage leaders like Syung Moon or are high level freemasons themselves.
Jesus said that we will know them by their fruits. If you hear any of
them spouting partisan politics then they are charlatans. I heard a
preacher on a local christian TV station sounded really good at first
but then went into clintonbashing, like it was the 1990’s, without one
word about the corruption of Bush. He is an example of what I am talking
about. Proverbs warned against those who tip the scales, using different
standards for different people. Also speaks against favoritism. This is
all throughout the bible. Jesus spoke against this as well. Jesus said
that only the truth will set you free. Anyone following these liars are
not really free. Those in deception prove their fruits more ways than
one. Just like how Jesus warned against the leaven of the pharisees. He
said just a little bit corrupts the whole batch, as well as the little
foxes that spoil the vine. Who can argue the wisdom of Jesus? If He had
more true followers we would not be in the mess that we are in now.

It is time to say it: the two major parties hold a death grip on the
American people. Instead of representing the people, both the
Republican and Democrat parties are bought and paid for by special
interest groups and multinational corporations. Neither party pays any
attention to the U.S. Constitution but both are largely marching in
lockstep toward bigger and bigger government. Both Republicans and
Democrats eagerly sacrifice what’s good for the country for what’s
good for the party. As they now exist, neither major party deserves
the support of patriotic Americans.

Furthermore, blind allegiance to the two major parties has created a
“lesser of two evils” mindset that has warped the thinking and
perverted the values of otherwise good people. What people would never
accept in any other venue of society, they gladly and willingly accept
from their chosen party’s candidates.

People expect honesty and integrity from clergymen, bankers, doctors,
businessmen, realtors, journalists, and even used car salesmen. Those
same people, however, quickly tolerate and even excuse dishonesty and
chicanery from their chosen political party.

Ever since George W. Bush became President of these United States, I
have watched in disbelief as my fellow Christian conservatives have
not only looked the other way as Bush repeatedly betrayed
conservative/constitutional principles, but have willingly and
enthusiastically supported his apostasy. Many of them are continuing
to do the same thing by supporting the Big-Government, pro-amnesty,
pro-gun control, pro-100-year war, grubby candidacy of John McCain.
Good grief! Pat Robertson even endorsed the soiled candidacy of the
liberal cross-dresser, Rudy Giuliani.

It is clear, therefore, that conservatives are more than willing to
support and defend someone they know to be unfaithful to both their
oath of office and to bedrock conservative principles. In other words,
it does not matter a whit to them whether their candidate tells the
truth, obeys the Constitution, or even demonstrates fidelity to the
fundamental principles of liberty. If he has an “R” behind his name,
conservatives will support him.

However, the same people who will justify dishonesty in the lives of
their favored party’s politicians would never accept such conduct from
anyone else. Furthermore, many of these conservatives actually call
themselves Christians; many are preachers. They preach and teach the
virtues of honesty and integrity from the pulpit. They teach boys and
girls to be honest and virtuous: to put the principles of right above
personal wealth or benefit. Then, they turn around and support these
lying politicians, many of whom are fornicating, greedy, arrogant
reprobates. What is even more amazing is that they find no
inconsistency with what they are doing.

In his Farewell Address, our first and greatest President, George
Washington, eloquently lobbied the American people to guard against
over-infatuation with political parties. Anyone reading his warnings
today will be impressed with his insight and wisdom. Virtually
everything he predicted has come to pass. Blind loyalty to political
parties has corrupted our public institutions, blinded the hearts and
minds of the American people, and opened wide the door to undue
foreign influence.

If everyone who believes and teaches honesty and accountability would
put it into practice when they walk into the voting booth, we could
put a stop to this pathetic practice of electing dishonest and
despicable people to high public office. Instead of hiding their own
character and integrity under the bushel basket of party partisanship,
voters could be proud of the fact that they are actually helping to
set the ship of state aright by electing men and women of honesty and
character.

Although I do not share this opinion, many people believe Abraham
Lincoln to be one of America’s greatest presidents (I think he was one
of the worst). Personal opinion aside, it is a fact that Lincoln’s
election and subsequent influence upon this country was huge.
Therefore, it is more than significant to realize that Lincoln was
first elected from a four-person race with only 39% of the popular
vote. Even more significant is the fact that at that time the
Republican Party was a minor party, having been formed only a few
years earlier. So much for the argument that a minor party cannot win
a major election.

In practically every Presidential election, there are candidates from
a variety of independent or “third” parties on the ballot. To ignore
them merely because they are not Republicans or Democrats is absurd.
Furthermore, it is more than obvious that the GOP will not tolerate
principled candidates running for President. The recent Presidential
candidacies of Duncan Hunter, Tom Tancredo, Alan Keyes, and Ron Paul
make this abundantly clear.

While it may still be appropriate to support state and local
Republican candidates, at the Presidential level, it is waste of
time–and a wasted vote–to support the establishment Republican
candidates. They are all Big-Government liberals. Yes, that includes
Mike Huckabee.

I recommend that people seriously consider voting for a Third Party
candidate this November. Start by taking a close look at the
Constitution Party.

http://www.constitutionparty.com/

The Constitution Party (the third largest political party in America)
has a proven track record of fidelity to pro-life, conservative
principles and to constitutional government. I further believe it is
time for principled columnists and journalists such as Charley Reese
to start encouraging voters to support principled, independent
candidates. The same goes for leaders of the Religious Right such as
Tony Perkins, James Dobson, and Phyllis Schlafly. For them to continue
to ignore good, independent candidates only serves to strengthen and
augment the two-party death grip.

It is more than interesting that more people are currently registered
as Independents than either Republican or Democrat. But it is not
enough to register as an Independent, we must start voting
Independent. Remember, the object is to elect honest and honorable
leaders for our country, not to promote and protect the private
agendas of the fat cats who control the two major parties.

It increasingly appears that the two major parties will force the
American people to choose between the fascistic John McCain or the
Marxist Barack Obama. Is that really the kind of choice we are willing
to accept? Are we really content to continue to vote the “party line,”
no matter what damage results?

Let’s face it, folks: the two major parties are strangling the life
out of this country. It is indeed a death grip. Something drastic must
be done, and it must be done NOW! Since it does not appear that either
major party is salvageable (at the national level), it is up to “We
the people” to take matters into our own hands. This means bypassing
the mainstream press and relying more on the Internet for our news and
information. And it means bypassing the two major parties and voting
for Independent candidates for President.

If Michael Bloomberg throws his hat in the Presidential ring, it will
already be a three-man race. A strong independent conservative
contender would make it a viable four-man race (just like 1860). At
that point, anything could happen. But first, we must awaken to the
reality of the two-party death grip, and then decide to do something
about it. I am ready. How about you?

A Giuliani Nomination Dooms America

This past week, I was interviewed by best-selling author and World Net
Daily columnist Jerome Corsi. (Read the column at
http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=57953 ) The subject of
the interview was the potential conservative Christian response to the
possibility that Rudy Giuliani would gain the Republican nomination
for President next year. (We also discussed the cozy connection
between the Bush and Clinton families, which will probably be dealt
with in a future Corsi column.)

I told Dr. Corsi, “A lot of conservative Christians will never vote
for Rudy Giuliani.” I will even go so far as to say that no genuine
Christian conservative could possibly vote for Giuliani. And, no, it
does not matter that Hillary Clinton might be elected President as a
result. A Giuliani or Clinton choice is tantamount to a choice between
Nero or Caligula.

Let me say it plainly: a Hillary Clinton administration would be no
worse than a Rudy Giuliani administration. In some ways, it might not
be as bad. At least, with a Democrat in the White House, conservatives
might try to act like conservatives and muster the energy to actually
oppose some of her liberal proposals.

The record is clear: when a Republican is in the White House,
conservatives not only lose their backbone, they also lose their brain
cells. They walk around in a daze without the ability to even see what
is going on right before their eyes. They become “mind-numbed robots”
with no commitment to principle whatsoever. Why? Because one of “their
own” is in office. At that point, it becomes a “see no evil, hear no
evil, and speak no evil” situation. If two George W. Bush
administrations have taught us anything, they have taught us that.

Of course, there are pseudo-conservatives who will argue that Giuliani
is better than Hillary, because he will not be as prone to raise taxes
as Hillary would be. These are the Rockefeller Republicans who could
not care less about the murder of unborn babies, or the destruction of
the American family, or whether any citizen maintains the right to
keep and bear arms, or whether U.S. sovereignty is surrendered, or
whether our country is led by a modern Napoleon, or whether America is
merged into a North American Union, or whether illegal aliens are
granted citizenship, ad infinitum. The only thing they care about is
their pocketbook. They are piranhas who only want to manipulate
politics to feed their own selfish and greedy interests. They would
vote for the devil himself, if he promised them more money.

Not that liberals are any better. They are not. But at least one knows
exactly what to expect from liberals and how to oppose them.

Real patriotism is neither money-hungry nor socialistic. Real patriots
want what is best for America, not what is best for themselves. They
understand and appreciate America’s Christian heritage and are not
trying to turn the United States into a politically correct,
Balkanized, welfare state. They understand the importance of
preserving constitutional government, the Bill of Rights, and
Declaration principles. As a result, real patriots are looking for
statesmen, not charlatans.

It is unclear at this point exactly how many true patriots are left in
America. The 2008 elections will certainly help clarify the issue a
great deal, because no real patriot, no real conservative could
support Rudy Giuliani.

I have a hunch, however, that there are more genuine patriots left in
our country than many people want to admit. For example, I have been
swamped with emails from readers assuring me that they will never vote
for Giuliani NO MATTER WHAT. Here is a sample email that I just
received from San Jose, California:

“I keep reading and watching on TV (mostly Fox News) that most
Republicans will vote for Giuliani with the hopes of defeating
Hillary. Today I again read the same dribble from NewsMax. For what
it’s worth here is my response to them:

“Who on the NewsMax staff came up with this 47% of Republicans will
vote for Giuliani because they’re afraid of Hillary?

“Afraid of the Hildabeast? Please!

“All but a very few of my associates are Republicans and none, repeat,
none are going to vote for Giuliani and that’s right here in the
People’s Republik of Kalifornia even.

“If the Republican Party does not move back to the Right AS IT SHOULD
BE, all of my friends without exception are going to change to the
Conservative Constitution Party or re-register as an Independent. I’ve
already made the change as has my wife and daughter.”

I have received scores of emails that say the same thing.

As I have already written, I personally believe that the elitists who
control both major parties are manipulating the election so as to
ensure a Hillary victory. And, yes, the Bush machine is clandestinely
supporting Hillary as well. They know that real conservatives will not
support Giuliani, which is why they are promoting him. He is the fall
guy for Hillary Clinton. But in case he did win, he would continue to
do the bidding of the international elites just as Dubya has done.
They win either way.

If real conservatives within the GOP want to head off a Giuliani
catastrophe, they need to get behind someone such as Ron Paul. If
Giuliani obtains the presidential nomination, one of two things will
happen: he will lose the general election and facilitate massive
Republican losses in both houses of Congress, or he will win the
election and turn the GOP into a Big-Government, police-state,
warmongering leviathan that will forever corrupt the Party, turning it
into something reminiscent of Nazi Germany. America loses either way.

Grassroots Republicans have an opportunity in the primaries to reject
the liberal, Big-Government path that the GOP leadership is forcing on
the Party by rejecting the Big-Government candidates, Rudy Giuliani,
Fred Thompson, Mitt Romney, and John McCain. Candidates such as Duncan
Hunter, Tom Tancredo, and Ron Paul give conservatives
within the GOP alternatives to these Big-Government neocons. (Mike
Huckabee is too much in the mushy middle for me.)

However, if the Rockefellers succeed in nominating someone such as
Giuliani, real patriots will do what they have always done–stand for
principle and vote independent. (It is time we had a major independent
challenge to the two major parties, anyway.) If you want to start
doing some homework now about the possibility of voting for real
conservatives in the 2008 elections, do what that person in California
did and check out the Constitution Party at
http://www.constitutionparty.com

The line in the sand is being drawn. Better start thinking now about
where you will stand. As for me and my house, we would rather stand on
the Bible and the U.S. Constitution and vote our conscience than bow
the knee to madmen such as Rudy Giuliani.

Christians Should Support Constitutional Government

I was honored to speak before the National Committee of the
Constitution Party on Thursday, October 25, 2007 in Council Bluffs,
Iowa. Today’s column is a condensed version of that address.

Daniel Webster is regarded as perhaps America’s most notable jurist.
Webster said, “Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the
Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster, and what has
happened once in 6000 years may not happen again. Hold on to the
Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will
be anarchy throughout the world.”

He also said, “The hand that destroys the Constitution rends our Union
asunder forever.”

Please remember that this is the same Daniel Webster who said: “If we
abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on
prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its
instruction and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe
may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity.”

You see how Daniel Webster (like most of America’s founders) was a man
with deeply-held Christian convictions. He believed the Bible. He was
a devout believer. And he found no contradictions between the Bible
and the Constitution. In fact, he believed (as do I) that the
Constitution is the best safeguard for Christian liberty that we have.

When any constitutionally-elected officeholder assumes office, he or
she promises to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the
United States. They don’t promise to represent “conservative
principles” or to be “loyal to a political party,” etc. The
Constitution is the contract between “We the people” and our civil
magistrates.

When you or I hire an electrician or plumber to do work for us, we
sign a contract for specific work to be done. And at the end of the
day, I really don’t care whether he claims to be a Christian or where
he goes to church or how religious he claims to be. When the work is
finished, I want my lights to turn on and my toilet to flush. In other
words, I expect him to live up to his contract.

When we elect people to public office, we should expect only one
thing: that they uphold their contract to preserve, protect, and
defend the Constitution of the United States.

You see, adherence to the Constitution protects our freedom of speech
and assembly; our freedom of worship; our right to keep and bear arms;
our right to a trial by jury; the right to be secure in our own homes
against police overreach; our right to witness for Christ in public,
as a Christian; the right to own property; the right to not be
deprived of life or property without due process of law; the right to
face our accusers, and the right to keep government local and limited.

In fact, keeping government local and limited is the cornerstone
doctrine of American government. In most nations, the federal
government holds power over virtually every area of the lives of its
people. Not so in America–at least, not in the America that was
originally crafted.

Most of the problems that we are now dealing with socially,
culturally, financially, etc., stem from America abandoning the basic
founding principle that “the government that governs least governs
best.”

Accordingly, America’s commitment to life, liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness has been (and is being) systematically stripped from us–not
by State legislatures, but mostly by agencies of the federal
government.

Consider how it has been federal courts that have banned prayer in
school, and legalized abortion and homosexual marriage. Even in the
liberal State of Massachusetts it was the courts (along with a
compliant liberal governor, Mitt Romney), that forced acceptance of
homosexual marriage upon the people.

Today, we have federal departments and agencies almost without number.
We have the Department of Education, the Department of Transportation,
the Department of Energy, the Department of Homeland Security, the
Department of Agriculture, the Department of Commerce, the Department
of Health and Human Services, the Department of Housing and Urban
Development, the Department of Justice, the Department of Labor, the
Department of State, the Department of the Treasury, the Department of
the Interior, etc., etc., ad infinitum, ad nauseum.

Each and every federal department and agency, in its own way and for
its own purposes, to one degree or another, ignores or violates
constitutional government. And as a result, they contravene and strip
away the rights and freedoms of States collectively and of the people
individually.

The result of this gargantuan federal monstrosity includes
back-breaking taxation and over-regulation, which fuel inflation,
stymie productivity, and invite foreign influence.

One only has to observe how President Bush is now appealing to the
U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of an illegal Mexican alien who raped and
murdered two Houston, Texas teenagers, arguing that his death sentence
should be overturned and that he should be given a new trial. Bush’s
reason? Illegal aliens should be under the authority of a UN “world
court” instead of the State of Texas’ authority.

Observe how Bush is pushing for amnesty for illegal aliens. See how he
has merged these United States into a regional government by signing
onto the Security and Prosperity Partnership agreement with Canada and
Mexico. See how he is pushing for a NAFTA superhighway. Observe how he
and other globalists are planning to replace the U.S. dollar with a
regional, multinational currency called the Amero.

Furthermore, virtually every administration for the last fifty years
has engaged in an aggressive nation-building foreign policy. (Can
anyone say, “Iraq”?) In addition, in contradiction to the stated
warnings of our nation’s founders, they have actively pursued
entangling alliances with unfriendly governments. The past three
administrations in particular have deliberately steered our country
down a path of multiculturalism, globalism, and elitism.

Pastors, especially, should fight for constitutional government! Do
you preachers really think that there will be any room for the
old-time Gospel when the globalists and elitists in the federal
government have finished with their diabolical schemes?

Already, President Bush repeatedly tells us that Christians and
Muslims–and all other religions–worship the same God. How long will
you preachers be able to preach the narrow message of salvation, that
Christ is the only way to Heaven, when Bush’s doctrine of Universalism
is the accepted religion? And make no mistake about it: Universalism
is the national religion of the United Nations, the European Union,
and the emerging North American Union.

The Department of Homeland Security is already holding seminars for
pastors, instructing them how they should ask their congregants to
turn in their firearms in the event that the President declares a
national emergency. How many of you pastors are prepared to become an
instrument of gun confiscation for global government?

This is what happens when we abandon constitutional government.

It is not enough that a candidate says he is a Christian. Every
politician I know, or have ever known, says they are a Christian–at
least every four years. It is not enough that a candidate carries a
giant-print Bible to church. It is not enough that he says he prays or
says that “faith is important.”

The truth is, if the candidate is a sincere Christian, he or she will
all the more readily obey his or her oath to preserve, protect, and
defend the Constitution of the United States. After all, does not our
Lord tell us that our yea is to be yea and our nay is to be nay? In
other words, genuine believers are to be true to their word. How,
then, could a true Christian make a promise before God and the
American people to preserve, protect, and defend the U.S. Constitution
and then turn around and ignore that promise? He couldn’t.

Therefore, a professing believer who is elected to public office and
then ignores his or her promise to the Constitution proves that he or
she is not a true Christian but a phony who only uses a religious
testimony to dupe Christians.

Take the issue of abortion, for example. Ron Paul proposed the
“Sanctity of Life Act of 2005” (and 2007), which would require that
“human life shall be deemed to exist from conception, without regard
to race, sex, age, health, defect, or condition of dependency”

The bill also provides that “the Congress recognizes that each State
has the authority to protect unborn children…” And that “the Supreme
Court shall not have jurisdiction to review …the performance of
abortions; or the provision of public expenses of funds, facilities,
personnel, or other assistance for the performance of abortions.”

In other words, Dr. Paul understands that Article. III. Section. 2. of
the U.S. Constitution gives to Congress the authority to rein in an
abusive judiciary and take the issue of abortion (or homosexual
marriage or fill in the blank) out from under the jurisdiction of the
Court. This means that should Congressman Paul’s bill become law,
abortion on demand ends and Roe v Wade is overturned.

So, please tell me why, after having control of both houses of
Congress and the White House for six years, did these “pro-life”
Republicans in Congress and a “pro-life” President not pass Dr.
Paul’s bill?  Why? Because they really do not give a hoot about
abortion, but only use pro-life rhetoric to dupe conservative voters.

In addition, those conservatives who have followed President Bush’s
preemptive war doctrine are the ones who have abandoned historical
conservative principles. Before G.W. Bush changed the landscape,
conservatives–especially Christian conservatives–mostly subscribed
to Augustine’s “just war” theory regarding accepted protocols for the
conduct of war. Today, however, many professing conservatives have
foolishly followed Bush’s “preemptive war” theory, which, before now,
was practiced mostly by pagan emperors. As Christians, however, we
should still subscribe to “just war.”

In concert with “just war” philosophy (not to mention American
history), Christians should agree with Ron Paul’s approach to dealing
with terrorists. He authored H.R. 3076, the September 11 Marque and
Reprisal Act of 2001. According to Paul, “A letter of marque and
reprisal is a constitutional tool specifically designed to give the
president the authority to respond with appropriate force to those
non-state actors who wage war against the United States while limiting
his authority to only those responsible for the atrocities of that
day. Such a limited authorization is consistent with the doctrine of
just war and the practical aim of keeping Americans safe while
minimizing the costs in blood and treasure of waging such an
operation.”

This is precisely what President Thomas Jefferson did when America’s
ships were confronted with Barbary pirates on the high seas.

If the United States government had listened to Ron Paul, we would not
have lost nearly 4,000 American soldiers and Marines, spent over $1
trillion, and gotten bogged down in an endless civil war from which
there is no equitable extraction. Furthermore, had we listened to Dr.
Paul, Osama bin Laden would no doubt be dead, as would most of his
al-Qaeda operatives, and we would be less vulnerable to future
terrorist attacks, instead of being more vulnerable, which is the case
today.

How can anyone say with a straight face that they are fighting a war
on terrorism while at the same time doing absolutely nothing to secure
our borders and ports?!

I submit that every true American, especially conservative Christians,
should enthusiastically support constitutional government. I further
believe that a President who would take his oath to the Constitution
seriously would bring a new birth of freedom to America the likes of
which has not been seen since 1776. May God give us such a man!
