Our Attitude Towards Money Matters

Words Mean Everything

Last summer, Princeton University noted in one of their researches that the U.S. is no longer an actual democracy…

OK, stop…

From that one statement alone, if I had graduated from Princeton I would seriously be pursuing a refund — you would think in all their researches they would have found out the U.S. was NEVER a democracy as our founding fathers went out of their way to be sure one was not set up…

You will not find the word Democracy in the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, ANY of the State Constitutions, the Pledge of Allegiance, nor our National Anthem.

You will however find the word Republic once in the U.S. Constitution — Article 4, Section 4 — as follows…

“The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence.”

By definition, a Democracy is mob rule — 50%+1 on ANY vote, which means the favored laws of the day would be subject to the fickleness of feelings for the day…

By definition, a Republic is ruled by laws where one person can challenge any law through a judicial process.

The majority is defined by law as well (50%+1; 60%; 67%; etc.)

Ours is a Constitutional Republic which uses a democratIC process…

A democratic process in a government does not make it a Democracy.

If that were the case, and based upon their actions for the past few decades, then the left should be saying they are Tyrannists and not Democrats as they have been suppressing and attempting to stifle any opposing views…

To wit:

  • Ferguson
  • New York
  • Indiana

 

Attitude Towards Money

Returning to the research…

By asking “[w]ho really rules?” researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page argue that over the past few decades America’s political system has slowly transformed from a democracy into an oligarchy, where wealthy elites wield most power.

To this part, I believe most will agree no matter what side the political aisle you are on.

But hold on…

When has anyone who has been poor really been in office?

Even better, why would we want anyone of average means in the office?

Throughout the Bible even many of the leaders were wealthy, a few were even notably elite (such as Job)…

So, is it the money?

Or is it the attitude towards faith of those with the money?

It is not any big secret that Democrats in general are stingy when it comes to giving money to charity.

You would also be hard-pressed to find Democrats in a church that follows the Bible closely as well (notice I didn’t say they didn’t attend church, but rarely do we find a Democrat in a church that follows the Word of God as written instead of a doctrine of an organized religion).

Republicans aren’t saints by any means either — but they are much more generous towards charity and many of them are familiar with the Word of God over church doctrine of an organized religion.

The other difference towards money by both parties is this…

Democrats are notorious for starting all sorts of social programs just as long as they are using someone else’s money (usually the taxpayer).

True Republicans will find means to fund a project through various means, while minimizing or eliminating any tax on the people.

There is another factor to take into consideration….

Our Third Crisis

Since the 63rd Congress, the United States has been under a continuous crisis in its political history — that of Progressivism.

This is the 3rd crisis of our political history — the first two being our Revolution and our Civil War.

This movement was started with Woodrow Wilson in 1913, which is also the start of the 63rd Congress, and has been aided by Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, the Clintons and others.

The Progressives reject the our Judeo-Christian principles, including our notions of a fixed human nature and inalienable natural rights.

Instead, Progressives believe in a human nature that evolves and changes, which in turn justifies their efforts to break down separation of powers in order to expand the size and scope of government far beyond our Founders’ intent.

Our Causes

In order to understand fully this crisis, we must understand the causes of America.

America has 4 causes…

  • A Material Cause — primarily the land and the people
  • An Efficient Cause — the Founding Founders who led the Revolution in the name of the American people
  • A Formal Cause — the Constitution, especially the structure of government it establishes, and
  • A Final Cause — the principles of free government outlined in the Declaration of Independence

The American Founding sought to conserve the oldest and highest law, which according to the Declaration of Independence is “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.”

The Founders compared the natural law to the conventional law under which they lived, and—as described so eloquently and succinctly in the Declaration of Independence—determined that a revolution was justified in the name of this higher law.

Again, the Progressives reject all this as it goes against their belief in a human nature that evolves and changes, which nullifies their justification and efforts to break down separation of powers in order to expand the size and scope of government.

So, who has had the majority control of Congress starting with the 63rd Congress?

We the People are the ones to blame for this — but that does NOT mean the Progressives are free from blame.

They did whatever they could in their power to get into power — and now that they are they there?

We need to do whatever we can in our power to remove them from office — mostly through educating ourselves as well as educating others.

There will be those that will be adamant — don’t bother with them, they would rather embrace audacity than embrace liberty.

But others can be persuaded — and many have been already by their own kind…

Just remember, Progressivism — and anything else not of our Founding Father’s vision — is nothing more than a gradual and silent encroachment by those in power.

I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.
— James Madison

Final return to the research and the oligarchy being formed — many Republicans can’t walk away from this as they are just as guilty as most, if not all, left wingers.

However, we have been walking through our history for far too long asking God to stand aside instead of us taking a stand by His side…

How much longer do you think an oligarchy will exist live if we do?

How quickly will the oligarchy take over everything if we don’t?
