How the Two Major Parties Differ from
American Vision of "Liberty Under
- 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. www.Romans13.com
- "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
- "Under God"
means we have a personal responsibility to love God and
- The original American Dream: Everyone dwelling
safely under his own Vine & Fig Tree
- America was founded as a "City upon a Hill,"
a Christian nation from which the Gospel would be promoted
around the world, and the "blessings
of liberty" would cover the planet.
- There is a difference between "the state"
and "society." Society = the people.
- Economics in One
- "From this aspect, therefore, the whole of economics can be
reduced to a single lesson, and that lesson can be reduced to a single
sentence: The art of economics consists in looking not merely at the
immediate but at the longer effects of any act or policy; it consists
in tracing the consequences of that policy not merely for one group but
for all groups."

most dangerous threat to the personal safety and security

world's largest exporter of abortion, pornography,
- The federal government is no longer a City upon

businessmen, humanitarians, and missionaries, engaging in commercial and
charitable activities around the world, bringing peace and receiving the
admiration of the world.

The word "Christ" means "King." The
Message of Christmas and the Principles set forth by the Christ (the Messiah) who
came that first Christmas are the real solution to America's problems. The Federal
Government is at war with Christmas and "The
Way of Peace" announced by the Prince
of Peace. The Government should be on His shoulders (Isaiah
9:6-7). Abolishing a Messianic State is the only
appropriate way to honor the Messiah. Otherwise Christmas becomes mass hypocrisy.

that the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem. Jesus' parents lived in

Commandment ("Thou shalt not steal") must be applied to every

"Thou shalt not steal" means more than
not taking someone else's property. It also requires the creation of
wealth. We were created to "exercise dominion
over the earth" (Genesis 1:26-28), to convert a wilderness into a
Garden-City by working.
Ephesians 4:28 Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him
labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to
give him who has need.
Proverbs 18:9 He who is slothful in his work
Is a brother to him who is a great destroyer.
|Question 140: Which is
the eighth commandment?
Answer: The eighth commandment is, Thou

justice in contracts and commerce between man and man; rendering to
everyone his due; restitution of goods unlawfully detained from the right

the necessities of others; moderation of our judgments, wills, and
affections concerning worldly goods; a provident care and study to get,
keep, use, and dispose these things which are necessary and convenient for
the sustentation of our nature, and suitable to our condition; a lawful
calling, and diligence in it; frugality; avoiding unnecessary lawsuits and
suretyship, or other like engagements; and an
endeavor, by all just and lawful means, to procure, preserve, and further
the wealth and outward estate of others, as well as our own.
142: What are the sins forbidden in the eighth commandment?
The sins forbidden in the eighth commandment, besides the neglect of the
duties required, are, theft, robbery, man_stealing, and receiving anything
that is stolen; fraudulent dealing, false weights and measures, removing
land marks, injustice and unfaithfulness in contracts between man and man,
or in matters of trust; oppression, extortion, usury, bribery, vexatious
lawsuits, unjust enclosures and depopulations; engrossing commodities to
enhance the price; unlawful callings, and all other unjust or sinful ways
of taking or withholding from our neighbor: What belongs to him, or of
enriching ourselves; covetousness; inordinate prizing and affecting worldly
goods; distrustful and distracting cares and studies in getting, keeping,
and using them; envying at the prosperity of others; as likewise idleness,
prodigality, wasteful gaming; and all other ways whereby we do unduly
prejudice our own outward estate, and defrauding ourselves of the due use
and comfort of that estate which God has given us.
|Questions from previous
|Kurt - Lafayette, Indiana
comment on the following statement: "God formed the family government
unit and it was "good." Man formed the supra-familial civil
government units and they were "not good." God claims sovereignty
over them all."
| The first
sentence is fairly obvious from the first two chapter of Genesis.
The second sentence will be disputed by non-anarchists. They will say
that God, not man, formed "supra-familial civil government
units," and they would say that they were good, although man does not
always follow "The Owner's Manual."
Nearly all would agree in some sense with the third sentence.
So the central question is: does God command human beings to form
"supra-familial civil government units." Stated in a more
pragmatic way (rather than a normative way), would it be sinful or
sub-Biblical for a society to exist without any "supra-familial civil
government units" at all.
Do we need
"the government" do deliver our Christmas cards and other
""first class" mail? Could UPS or FedEx do the job cheaper
and faster? Then could we not abolish the USPS? Is
there any government agency that could not be replaced by a more efficient
network of competing entities in a Free Market?
If the pragmatic answer is on the side of free markets, where is
there a Biblical command or prohibition to the contrary? Where is Anarcho-Capitalism
prohibited in the Bible? Where is socialism mandated?

"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

|2. From your point of view about the death

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? Especially since Isaiah 65:25 reveals that animals will begin to
revert back to plant based food. Am I reading into this too much?

Our goal should not be to "protest" the police and other

WHICH religion is to be represented by this THEOCRACY? The terms for Deity in
the Declaration of Independence (the three times it is mentioned):
"Nature's God" "Creator" "Supreme Judge of the
World" "Nature's God"? Even pagans worship this aspect of God.
"Creator"? All religions that I know of have belief in a
"creator". "Supreme Judge of the World"? Any particular
religion for this? So, I ask: if the Declaration of Independence is a
"theocratic document" - then WHICH RELIGION? By the way, I'm a

CO-MINGLES CHURCH AND STATE. I've studied the Holy Roman Empire, and the

undue government influence. You, sir - are no Libertarian.
|Back in 1892, 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----No one takes the Law of God seriously, so we are drowning in DEBT.
Proverbs 22:7--The borrower is the servant (slave) of the lender. IMHO in

debit cards---I Cor. 6:10---For you are bought with a price: therefore
glorify God in your body and in your spirit; and I Cor. 7:23--You are bought
with a price; be not the servants of men. Are we Christians? Do we read the
WORD OF GOD, folks?? We are literally sinking, second by second into a sea of
a quadrillion dollars of bad debts. You say, "I never borrowed anything
like that amount of money." Ah, dear citizen and dear Christian, you
live on credit and thereby you gave the lender your precious ownership
rights, which God says plainly belong to Him! God will not be mocked. We are
in serious trouble. Repent, dear Christian!

Jesus Christ, according
to the Jefferson Bible. If Jesus really said these things (as Jefferson
apparently believes He did) then he was insane if He is not really God. He
was nuts to allow the Jews to crucify Him for claiming to be God if He was
not really God. Taken as a whole, the Bible claims that Jesus was Divine, as
well as the Holy Spirit.
This belief has been the foundation of liberty

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
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 atheistic nation.
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

Today's Secular America is like the atheistic Soviet Union.

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
