A Christian Values Party is needed as an alternative to the GOP.
[EDITOR’S NOTE: Different writers for this blog have different opinions about third parties (see here, for example). I am posting this in the interest of considering opposing views on the matter.]
Like so many others, I have been warning for quite some time that the Republican Party is a fraud. I began to see through the facade about a dozen years ago.
The American political world is a two-card Monte. The Hegelian Dialectic calls it “thesis/anti-thesis”. In a nutshell, the Hegelian Dialectic is a process whereby the ends are played against the middle.
It is like the teeter-totter you played on as a kid. Weight on one end makes the opposite end rise. The goal is to get the board balanced which can only be accomplished by adding and removing weight from the ends of the board.
This is the way the American political system works. Democrats/liberals are the counterweight to Republicans/conservatives. The constant teetering gives the impression of movement, but the status quo rarely changes. This has never been more evident than what has occurred in Congress since Obama was ‘handed his hat’ in the mid-term elections; except nothing has really changed. The teeter has tottered to Republican control of the Congress, yet the policies that Obama has pushed forward still remain in place. The two-party system was designed to be easily controlled. Money is in charge in Washington. Both the Republican’s and the Democrat’s wheels have been greased, ensuring smooth operation of the whole contrived charade.
“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.” – Mayer Rothschild
Politics is nothing more than manipulation. The more things change, the more they remain the same. Now they are talking about a tussle between Bush-Clinton in 2016. Has it ever dawned on you that there are royal families in Washington? Bush/Clinton replaced the Kennedys who replaced the Roosevelts who are controlled by the Rockefellers, Rothchilds, Chases, and the rest of the ruling elite.
Folks, please understand that the Central Banks rule America. The good ole U. S. of A. is in default to the Federal Reserve. No matter which party is in control, things will not change because the bankers control both parties. Voting has become futile. Boehner and McConnell are owned by the same folks that own Pelosi and Reid. The elections are merely a teeter totter where the balance of power moves from one end to the other.
The CFR (Council on Foreign Relations), Bilderbergers, and the NWO are real. We don’t want to believe that, because accepting that brings with it a sense of futility and despair. Republicans and Democrats are the counter-balance that gives the appearance of self-government. After all, we get to vote…don’t we?
“It doesn’t matter who votes…it matters who counts the votes.” – Joseph Stalin.
I spoke to a gathering of Tea Party leaders recently, and I told them that they must break away from the Republican Party. The two-party system is essential to the enslavement of ‘We the People’. The Tea Party will not be able to take control of the Republican Party, and Christians must do the same while realizing that they aren’t leaving the Republican Party…the Republican Party left them!
I love the Tea Party and the patriotic Americans that work to restore America to its foundational roots. They have truly made a difference in the past five years. But the Tea Party brand is dead. The Republicans and the Democrats, along with the media, have teamed up to do everything they can to tarnish their image. Both parties hate the Tea Party. That alone should tell us something.
Unfortunately, the Tea Party does not have a common vision. They love to rally around the term ‘liberty’, but that is not a strong enough bond. Liberty can mean different things to different people. That is why the Tea Party has such a broad spectrum of beliefs. The Libertarian streak that runs through the party is the poison pill that prevents greater victories.
To one person, liberty means the right to be free from government regulations and edicts, the right to carry a gun, and the freedom to worship God as one pleases. But to others, liberty means the right to abort a baby, the right to marry the same sex, the right to use drugs, and the removal of the Christian God as the standard of all morality.
Most Christians do not want to be part of a liberty movement where marriage and life are not sacred values. Without the Bible, what standard of right and wrong will America adopt? From the foundation of this land, God was the ‘decider’ of what is right and wrong. The Constitution is non-religious, but it is built upon the foundation of Biblical standards.
Muslims are welcome here, but should the values they hold supersede or replace our nation’s traditional values? Do their religious beliefs trump the laws of America? Does the Constitution give them the right to perform honor killings of their children? Of course not! Our laws are based upon the Bible. The Bible teaches that murder is wrong.
If we want to save this nation, we must engage in the political debate with unashamed, Christian values. The Republicans mouth the values, but they don’t truly believe in them. Do John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and the Republican leadership exemplify and codify into law Biblical values? Of course not! Why do we elect Republicans to be the standard bearers of Christian beliefs? Why don’t we start electing openly Christian officials who will unashamedly fight for Christian values?
Who speaks for you, Mr. Christian? Who puts the Gospel at the top of their platform, Mrs. Christian? Karl Rove? Chris Christie? Jeb Bush? Why do we expect them to support principles they themselves do not believe in? To the Republicans, Christians are nothing more than a voting block (or should I say, stumbling block?).
A strong Christian values party with unashamed Christian leaders would draw from many different constituencies. Blacks are Christians. Whites are Christians. The young are Christians. The elderly are Christians. We must help them realize that only Christ and His precepts can ultimately bring true liberty. A nation cannot survive without a clear standard of right and wrong.
I know many cradle-Democrats who will never vote Republican. Heck, I don’t even vote Republican. But the false labels of ‘liberal/conservative’ and ‘Republican/Democrat’ divide Christians and diffuse the power. The ballot-box ends up keeping us all bound in slavery.
Pastors could lead the charge. It would help them because they would not be forced to take sides during the political season. They could proudly tell their flocks that they vote for the Christian Party. It is time to stop worrying about who is President. Let’s begin to focus on who represents us in Congress.
How many actual Christians are there in Congress today? What would it look like if the House of Representatives was 145 Democrats, 145 Republicans, and 145 Christians? What if the Senate was 33 Democrats, 34 Republicans, and 33 Christians? Jesus told us to “come out from among them and be ye separate.” Let’s stop letting the Republicans speak for the Body of Christ.
The Tea Party has shown that grassroots activism can work, but the impact will be diminished if we cast our lot with the leadership of McConnell, Boehner and their ilk. A Christian Party would force the RINOS to compromise with us.
It is time for the Tea Party to stop catering to the libertarians. Let’s put Jesus and His values at the top of the ticket, and unashamedly stand for the God we claim to serve.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Would Jesus put His trust in the Republican Party? No? Then why should Christians?
