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.
