It’s time for a major reality check: The GOP doesn’t walk on water, nor has it been anointed by God as His personal ambassador to Washington, D.C.
Today, many people feel the Republican Party is at least as corrupt as the Democratic Party. There are good reasons why large numbers of conservatives are leaving the Republican Party. Indeed, why any religious conservatives still continue to support the GOP is difficult to comprehend, since the GOP not only supports the same causes as Democrats, they also lie about what they really stand for.
I can hear the howls of protest even as I write this, but just so you know where I’m coming from, I twice was an elected member of a large Republican county central committee. Nobody wanted to see the Republican Party succeed more than I did.
But the facts are clear: The GOP only pretends to support conservative values. Since Bush has been in office and the Republicans have controlled the House and Senate, here are just a few of the most egregious things that God’s Party has done for America:
- continued to support the United Nations, which seeks control over America.
- continued to allow the Internal Revenue Service to destroy the lives of U.S. citizens.
- continued to allow judges to use the U.S. Constitution as toilet paper.
- continued the cover-up of the attack on TWA Flight 800.
- continued the cover-up of the Oklahoma City bombing.
- continued to pay lip service to protecting U.S. borders, while actually inviting more illegal immigration.
Why are religious conservatives supporting this insanity? Let’s be real: There is no longer any substantial difference between the Republican Party and the Democratic Party. The GOP now even actively supports pro-homosexual and pro-abortion politicians. Enough is enough!
Religious conservatives comprise some 30 to 40 percent of the Republican Party. Rather than supporting spineless, highly compromised GOP phonies, why not work for something worthwhile such as the Constitution Party’s political platform?
For me, the bottom line is this: I do not want to stand before God one day and tell Him I enabled evil to continue unchecked because I was afraid to do the right thing and, consequently, caved in to what was expedient. No matter what happens, God is still sovereign, but at least I can say I stood against the evil now engulfing the United States. Will you be able to say that?
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
– Edmund Burke
Conviction is worthless unless it is converted into conduct.
– Thomas Carlyle
There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.
– Elie Wiesel
The greatest menace to freedom is an inert people.
– Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis
A little rebellion now and then is a good thing.
– Thomas Jefferson
The right to revolt has sources deep in our history.
– Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas
Noncooperation with evil is as much a duty as cooperation with good.
It is not the function of our government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error.
– U.S. Supreme Court in American Communications Association v. Douds
Not voting is just as bad as voting for evil men because it allows evil to succeed by default. Take a stand with people who support what you really support. Stop cowering and merely complaining about America’s pending demise and act in such a way as to truly make a difference.
