How the Two Major
Parties Differ from
the American Vision of "Liberty
- Freedom from the initiation of
force by others, especially by the government.
- "The government" claims to possess a
morally legitimate monopoly of violence.
- The entity called "the government" is the
worst idea human beings have ever come up with. The
whole concept of "the government" is evil.
- "The Free Market"
works; Socialism brings
poverty and mass death
- "Under God"
- The Constitution:
- America's Founders spoke of America as "an Experiment
in Liberty" (1787-1887)
- The "experiment" was a success: a Free
Market made America the most prosperous and admired
nation in history. "Capitalism"
- In the 20th century, the experiment in liberty was replaced
with another experiment: an
experiment in central planning
- The original American dream of personal, private
ownership, has been replaced with private indebtedness
and public control.
Invisible Hand of the Free Market works better than the
Visible Fist of Government
- America was founded on the philosophy of "Liberty
- "Liberty" means freedom from
government suppression of ideas and
confiscation/redistribution of wealth
God" means we have a personal
responsibility to love God and neighbor.

Everyone dwelling safely under his own Vine

- There is a difference between "the
state" and "society."
Society = the people.

In regards to constructive capitalism, I was thinking

doing business. This documentary is available on Netflix
"The Search for God and Guinness" by Stephen
Mansfield. The tagline is "A biography of the beer
that changed the world." "It began in Ireland in
the late 1700s. The water in Ireland, indeed throughout
Europe, was famously undrinkable, and the gin and whiskey
that took its place was devastating civil society. It was
a disease ridden, starvation plagued, alcoholic age, and
Christians like Arthur Guinness-as well as monks and even
evangelical churches-brewed beer that provided a healthier
alternative to the poisonous waters and liquors of the
times. This is where the Guinness tale began. Now, 246
years and 150 countries later, Guinness is a global brand,
one of the most consumed beverages in the world. The tale
that unfolds during those two and a half centuries has
power to thrill audiences today: the generational drama,
business adventure, industrial and social reforms,
deep-felt faith, and the beer itself." [link]
In regards to debt, interest, and going into business. On
page 54 of this book, Arthur Guinness received 100 pounds
as an inheritance from his father's friend Dr. Price who
had passed away. Not until 7 years later of hard work, was
he able to buy the land that an old brewery sat on,
getting a 9,000 year long lease. There was no mention
about going into debt.

"And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the

their autonomous reign and their subservience to the

view about the death penalty no longer necessary to be

logic be applied to animals no longer being used as a food

when they were sacrificed as a covering/offering. Now that
Christ died and no longer are animals to be sacrificed,
should animals still be put to death for consumption?

Our goal should not be to "protest" the

The Supreme Court of the United States declared that
America is a Christian
nation. The Court cited the Declaration of
Independence as evidence of this. You say that
"pagans" worship a god using terms found in the
Declaration of Independence. But clearly, the Framers of
the Declaration were Christian, not pagans, and intended
the Christian God, not a pagan god. You say "all
religions" believe in a creator. But none of these
religions were represented in Philadelphia during the
Framing of the Declaration or the Constitution. (Leaving
alone the fact that many religions, like
Buddhism, do not believe in god or a creator.) The
question, "Which religion," is obvious to any
intelligent observer, as the Supreme Court noted.

Debt, debt, debt----No one takes the Law of God seriously,

Kevin, I agree with many of the stances on your website.
However, I cannot find much information about you as a

according to your position for fewer taxes and less
spending, Congressmen would have to be willing to
sacrifice tax-rendered compensation for the public good.

situation would not create a conflict of interest when it
came to choosing between the public's needs and your own

sure that -- just as environmentalists worry about
"carbon footprints" -- I would not leave a
"taxpayer footprint" in my wake. In other words,
as much as possible, I would not compel taxpayers to pay
for my presence in Washington D.C. This means following Ron
Paul's practice of returning the bulk of the allocated
money for Congressional Staff. It doesn't take a large
staff to follow the Constitution, only to meet and deal
with lobbyists. There will be none of that in my office. I
have formed a non-profit organization to do the work of
spreading the vision of "Vine

organization to accomplish my goals, and not use extortion
to raise money from taxpayers.

What Would America's Founding
The men who signed a
Declaration of Independence against tyranny
would not be happy with today's government - a government more
tyrannical than any they could have imagined.

happy with a tax ten times greater on every gallon of
Those who took up muskets
over a total tax burden of less than 3%

Today it is illegal for
public school teachers to teach their students that the
Declaration of Independence is really true (and not just an
outdated historical document). The federal government is clearly
at war with everything the Founding Fathers stood for.
America's greatest Americans would abolish
today's federal government.
Muskets are Not an Option
There are two reasons why we should not take up arms to pull
off the violent overthrow of the
federal government, even if America's Founders would surely do
so. First, the feds have nukes. Second, violent revolution is
unChristian and unBiblical. We must beat our swords
into plowshares and use persuasion
to abolish tyranny. This is time for a
revolution of ideas.
Revolution Won't Come in a Day
John Adams once wrote that the American
Revolution began in 1761, when Massachusetts attorney James
Otis began legal challenges to the Writs
of Assistance. He lost the case, but "American
independence," Adams wrote, "was
then and there born." Now do the math. That means it
took 15 years to convince the rest of America to
declare Independence (1776). Then another seven years of
war was required before a Peace Treaty was signed (1783), and
then six years before the Constitution was finally
ratified (1789). That's almost 30 years. (And Jefferson said we
shouldn't go 20
years without another rebellion!) How can we hope to
convince Americans to fight for principles they were never
taught in government schools? We need to be in this battle for
the long term. "Eternal
Vigilance is the Price of Liberty."
|George Washington has been
criticized for owning slaves -- even
though he inherited them, and even though it was
illegal for him to free them (when Virginia tried passing
laws against slavery, the
King of Britain overruled them). But being a slave in a
Christian nation is better than being "free" in an
In the Soviet Union, workers on the collective farms were
allowed a small plot of land to grow what they wanted, and
sell for whatever they could get. These small plots of
capitalism saved the entire nation from starvation.
"Two percent of privately
owned Soviet farmland was producing fully 30 percent of
the country’s grain."
Today's Secular America is like the atheistic Soviet
Union. The government claims ownership of more
than 2/3 of everything you earn. The majority of
industry is regulated by the State. Yet the small amount of
freedom left to us provides us with iPods, big-screen TV,
microwaves, and info-tainment. We think we are wealthy. But
we are not free.
In America, the percentage of privately-owned property --
truly and securely owned -- is not much different from the
percentage in the Soviet Union. George
Washington's ideal was for every American to live
peacefully under his own
"Vine & Fig Tree." This was the original
"American Dream." Today's "American
Dream" is a fixed-rate mortgage. The bank
actually owns your home. This is a form of slavery, as
anyone who signed the Constitution would tell you. Even if
you pay off your mortgage, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled
government can take your home and give it to someone
else who might use your property differently and pay more
taxes to the government than you do.
Consider the challenge of Samuel Adams.
Americans today love "wealth" (if
"gangsta-rap cell-phone ring-tones" can be
considered "wealth") better than liberty and
personal responsibility. Because Americans have been denied
the three most important features of colonial schools in
America, they are ignorant and illiterate
-- like slaves.
Samuel Adams, speaking at the State House in
a very numerous audience” on August 1, 1776:
ye love wealth better than liberty,
the tranquillity of servitude more than
the animating contest of freedom
—go from us in peace.
We ask not your counsels or arms.
Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.
May your chains sit lightly
upon you, and
may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!
If you are an ordinary American, you are a pampered
slave. You are wealthy beyond the imagination of
anyone alive in 1776. But you would rather keep the remote
control of your TV than risk
it by fighting for liberty and personal responsibility.

the campaign finance laws
Campaign finance laws are really incumbent protection laws.
They make it almost impossible for challengers to raise
competitive funding, while doing almost nothing to control
the true causes of government corruption. We were told that
the campaign finance laws—the contribution limits and the
reporting requirements—would curtail or even prevent
corruption. Now, with 40 years of experience, we know that
they do the exact opposite.
If the government suspects you used your house or car in a
crime, they can take it and sell it at auction. They don't
even have to prove your guilt. They call this practice civil
asset forfeiture, but it's really theft. It violates the
4th, 5th, 6th, 8th, 9th and 14th Amendments. It also
encourages law enforcement to put profits before justice.
