A Republic, Madam, If You Can Keep It! - The Spirit of Absalom - Childishness

For you know that we dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children, 1 Thessalonians 2:11 

Democracy arises out of the worship of the creature rather than the Creator and can only lead to immorality.  “I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul.”  This is the exchange of the truth of God for a lie. There is nothing more immoral than the destruction of the innocent human life while yet in the nourishing security of its mother’s womb - unless as a result of such an intrusion she or he is born alive and then allowed to perish while its perpetrators stand by violating their own oath - “Above all, I must not play at God.”

Children - Not Slaves

A democracy does not create children, but slaves. It is only the republic that begets sons and daughters.

The presidency is a threat to democracy. The office of the president is not one of the autocrat - but the one of the father.  Peggy Noonan was a speech writer for President Reagan. She said that when he had been away and then returned the staff would exclaim, “Daddy’s home!”

This is why we are seeing the current attempt at insurrection. Our republic has withstood the tests of time - enduring much suffering - such as a horrific Civil War. The victorious forces were known as the Grand Army of the Republic.  Yet these trials have only served to perfect her. Once again there is an insidious threat rising from within that seeks to bring her low.  Their fate is to be entrapped in their own snare.

Spirit Of Absalom

The spirit of Absalom is at work. “In this manner Absalom dealt with all Israel who came to the king for judgment; so Absalom stole away the hearts of the men of Israel.”  2  Samuel 15:6  Absalom was selected by a plurality of the people albeit by false promises, intrigue and innuendo. His ultimate aim was patricide. David was anointed as King by God. He mourned at the news of the death of his treacherous son. The demise that the spirit of Absalom has planned will become his own.

"Woe to the rebellious children," declares the LORD, "Who execute a plan, but not Mine, And make an alliance, but not of My Spirit, In order to add sin to sin;” Isaiah 30:1

The role of the father is one of benevolence. His function is that of a provider and protector - and yes, a loving disciplinarian. The most innocent and vulnerable will find security in his care. According to its most vociferous adherents under a democratic government an unborn person has no right to live.  Under a republican government the most precious will be guaranteed the right of life.

The government of these United States is that of a Constitutional Republic. 

Two Wolves and A Lamb

Benjamin Franklin said, “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.”  I would suggest to you that the two wolves are the northeast and west coasts while the lamb is the rest of us in the middle. We will not allow ourselves to be the main course. It should then come as no surprise that the chief conspirators of this plot represent these two geographical regions. 

“Montani Semper Liberi” 

From a Virginia State Senator - “There is an all out war on the Constitution. It is beginning in Virginia as it is the oldest legislative body in our nation and the birthplace of eight presidents.”  Including the Father of our nation. We in West Virginia share in this heritage - and in the struggle. “Montani Semper Liberi”  We are bondsmen to no one but God - and to Him we are also sons and daughters.

“And to the Republic for which it stands...” The Divine Will

“And to the Republic for which it stands...” 

Just watched an interview with one of the most conservative members of the U.S. Senate.  He continually used the term “western democracies” and referred to our government as a “constitutional democracy.”  This woeful misunderstanding is across the board. A state of confusion and ineptness can be the only result. 

It is a republic that truly protects minority interests and safeguards them from the tyranny of the majority - democracy.  In a true democracy small states would have no voice in the national government. 


The Republic recognizes the Divine Will as the source of its origin. The democracy sees its right to rule in the will of the people. A Republic is a manifestation of the will of God being done on the earth. “In the exercise of His will He brought us forth by the word of truth, so that we would be a kind of first fruits among His creatures.” James 1:18  Feigning pious prayerfulness while denying the right to life of our most vulnerable citizens is evidence of nothing more than a deceptive “angel of light.” 

From a young Ethiopian woman now a citizen of this Republic: “This country was founded upon the Constitution, was built on Godly principles and we’re gonna fight for that...And I just want to encourage you guys to pray every day for this nation.” She was addressing a meeting called by our Chief Executive. And then she began to pray...”Jesus I ask you to protect us and walk with us and in Jesus’ name the enemy tries to attack us every single day, He tries to discourage us but he has no room.  He has no room, no more, and that’s all I have to say.”


A republic provides security - a democracy breeds insecurity.  A republic will tolerate - even appreciate the democratic; but the democratic will seek to destroy the republic for it sees her as a threat. Initiative is encouraged in a republic while it is suppressed in a democracy. It is a republican form of government that has made this nation great through the release of innovation/invention/creativity - entrepreneurship. 


As 1787 heralded the birth of a New Republic, 1789 witnessed the fore-shrouding of the democratic tragedy known as the French Revolution. A counterfeit only exists as a result of the genuine - and is parasitic. It will attempt to suck the lifeblood out of the living organism. 

‘Voltaire’s mad cry, “Down with the scoundrel,” was aimed at Christ himself, but this cry was merely the expression of the most hidden thought from which the French Revolution sprang. The fanatic outcry of another philosopher, “We no more need a God,” and the odious shibboleth, “No God, no Master,” of the Convention; —these were the sacrilegious watchwords which at that time heralded the liberation of man as an emancipation from all Divine Authority.’ [Abraham Kuyper. Lectures on Calvinism - Prime Minister of the Netherlands - 1901-05]

France which can be said to be one of the most secular - God-less - nations still celebrates July 14, 1789 - Bastille Day - as its primary national holiday. Yet, an impotent democracy had to rely of the might of a Republic to rescue it from oblivion in 1917 and then again in 1944. 

“one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God...

“Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”  Romans 13:1

"I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

The Flag of the United States of America stands for the Republic. It does not stand for a democracy.

An Unalienable Right

I noticed that many of those that replied to my recent post that the United States is a Republic and not a democracy were ex-military - as I am also. 

The phrase “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance was added by General Dwight David Eisenhower = then President - to counter the encroaching threat of God-less socialism (communism).

We took an oath to protect and defend the rights of the people of this nation via fidelity to our Constitution. We are a Constitutional Republic. A constitution is superfluous in a democracy.  

I, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

The first unalienable right in the Declaration of Independence is the Right to Life.

No Rights!?

Yet many of our current presidential candidates would deny this right to the most vulnerable of our society - the unborn person. To quote one of the most prominent, “An unborn person has no rights.” These are the same ones who consistently refer to our system of government as a democracy. In a democracy if your rights are inconvenient to the majority you are discarded. 

James Madison, often called “the father of the Constitution” wrote, “Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have, in general, been as short in their lives as they are violent in their deaths.”  

In the early 1800s, John Marshall, the chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court wrote, “Between a balanced republic and a democracy, the difference is like that between order and chaos.” 


You won’t find the word “democracy” in either the Declaration of Independence or the U.S. Constitution. The United States of America was established as a Republic — period.

“A republic is guided by an overarching set of laws — a charter or constitution — which, in our country’s case, explicitly guarantees the individual’s rights against the desires of the majority. Each of us has the indisputable right to think, worship and vote anyway we want.” Diane Dimond 

It is the right of the unborn person to live that can only be protected and preserved under a Republican form of government.
“For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended.”  Romans 13:3
