The Real State of the Union

American Perspective

Darrell-Cynthia-195p.jpgMy friend, Darrell Castle, producer of the weekly Castle Report, was recently interviewed on the Home Front program with former state representative, Cynthia Davis. Their conversation began with a review of some of the key events and issues of the past year that are most effecting our lives. It’s a good interview and worth taking the time to listen to.

However, it was in the later portion of the interview that Cynthia and Darrell brought out what I believe to be some particularly profound insights that reveal the true state of our union and of the Christian and conservative right. What I hear is the story of a people who have placed partisan loyalty ahead of guiding principles, put more trust in man, money and political power than in simply doing what is right and appear to have lost the will to correct the course.

I don’t say these…

Wrong-Way Republicans

 

Wrong Way 295pThe Conservative Right seems to operate from a general assumption that things keep getting worse because liberals are in power and democrats win all the elections. However, I got curious and did a little research on the topic. I discovered that over the past 20 years, republicans have held 57% of the control of our federal government – 68% if you add in the Supreme Court – that’s a 68/32 split in favor of the republicans. Among the union states, the elephant party holds complete control (legislature and governor) of nearly half the states (23) – more than three times as many as the dreaded donkeys (7). It turns out that America is overwhelmingly republican-controlled.

So why hasn’t so much as one unconstitutional federal agency or program been abolished, or defunded, or even had its funding reduced, or at least not had its funding increased? And why haven’t any of the states begun to dismantle their social welfare programs, eliminate regulatory bureaucracies, significantly reduce taxes or implement anything remotely resembling what was once known as the conservative agenda?

It might be an unpleasant fact to face, but the truth is that the majority of those elected by the Conservative Right no longer represent the values once associated with the conservative movement and its favored political party. Some have gradually, and even unwittingly, adopted elements of the secularist-socialist-statist worldview to which republicans once provided an opposition. Others have succumbed to the allure of power or have simply sold out to lobbyists and big money donors who can assure their reelection. We’re not talking about just a few“RINOs.” The compromise, corruption and general sellout of traditional conservative values has become pandemic in the Republican Party.

Some people think that their representative is “pretty conservative,” citing, “he voted right on the big issue in this session; I know that, because he sent me a letter telling me so.” Unfortunately, many of us don’t realize the deals that are cut and the games that are played out of public view.

For example, Eagle Forum president, Ed Martin, explained in an interview with former state representative, Cynthia Davis, that in last year’s Boehner-Obama secret budget deal, all but 29 republicans voted to advance a democrat budget to the floor where it would have enough support to pass. Then, an hour later, the majority of those republicans voted against the same budget. The net effect was that republicans enabled the bill to get to the floor to be passed, yet most were able to go home to tell their conservative constituents that they voted against the reckless budget.

I don’t know whether republicans do such things because they are evil, cowardly, or inept, but it really doesn’t matter since the outcome is the same.

For a more thorough look at the systemic nature of the betrayal and duplicity, I highly recommend you listen to the full Cynthia Davis/Ed Martin interview.

Yes, many of your nice conservative republican representatives are actually lying to you. Remember, a lie is not merely a “non fact,” but is any endeavor to deceive, including an endeavor by your representative to make you think they “held the line,” when, in reality, they sold out your values.

This is going on at the state level as well. Listen to this discussion (begins at the 7:00 minute mark and continues through 11:30) between Washington State Representative David Taylor and former representative Jason Overstreet, for an example of orchestrated republican deception relating to the 2015-17 Washington state budget. While republican leadership serenaded the faithful with a song of “No New Taxes,” 90% of their legislators voted for a budget built on a $17 billion tax increase over 10 years.

Based on conversations with friends who have served in other state legislatures, it’s apparent that similar examples could be found in most every state.

This past September, Senator Ted Cruz gave one of the most powerfull speechesthat I’ve heard from a sitting member of congress (click here for transcript). Cruz pulled back the curtain on the corruption, compromise and deceit that has become the republican party, including an explanation of how “show-votes” are used topacify the conservative rubes. As Cruz points out, it would be bad enough if republican leadership merely betrayed conservatives, but, in reality, they actually hold their party’s base in contempt.

This isn’t meant to discourage anyone, but to shake, wake, and make the Christian-Conservative-Right realize that you’re being taken for a ride on a republican bus that’s going the wrong way. There is hope and there are answers, but you’re going to have to find the courage to get off the bus and stand for principle, not just party.

That includes being willing to lose a few battles while fighting to win the war; and it includes being willing to depose every incumbent who does not hold strictly to the Biblical-constitutional-liberty standard. You don’t send the establishment a message by reelecting their lackeys; you send them a message by voting them out and taking away their power! That’s the only message they understand.

More importantly, God does not have a track record of rewarding tepidness, compromise, deceit or disloyalty, and He is the only One who can truly heal the land. America has gone beyond the point from which the conservative movement can restore it. For that matter, I believe the conservative movement has degenerated beyond the point from which it can itself recover. The sooner we come to grips with that, the sooner we can move on from trusting in men, money, political parties and power structures, and get back to trusting in God as our only hope; demonstrating that trust through unswerving devotion to His righteous cause is the only answer, not being dissuaded from our course for a mere win at the polls, or for fear that the other party might get in.

I’ll stand alone for principle if need be, but I won’t compromise the standard to join a heard of pachyderms stampeding off in the wrong direction.

Don’t You Know There Is A War On?

In light of the events in Paris, this is worth repeating. It’s time to WAKE UP!

Constitution Party of Wisconsin

Battle against the Barbary Pirates Battle against the Barbary Pirates

I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.” Psalms 120:7

By Riley J. Hood-State Chairman

            There has been a war on since 630AD. What war is that? It is the Islamic war to take over the world; and that includes America. Before America became a military power, Muslims referred to the British Empire as the “Great Satan.” Why? Because England’s Navy was closing down the Islamic slave trade and curbing Islamic Piracy.  Early in our history, American citizens were being enslaved on the high seas by the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslims, supported by the Ottoman Empire. The phrases “going pirate,” and “turning Turk” were interchangeable in the 1700s and early 1800s.  Our US Constitution Article I, Section 8, paragraphs 11-12 provides for letters of Marque and Reprisal, meaning Congress may authorize armed merchantmen to take these pirates…

High-Tax, Big-Government Republicans

American Perspective

Big Government 230When the 2015-17 Washington state budget was finally passed back in June of this year, I heard boasts emanating from the Republican Party about how they held the line against democrats and managed to pass a budget without raising taxes. My first reaction was incredulity. My next response was to question whether I had been misjudging republicans and being unduly critical of them. However, a little research quickly revealed that I was being lied to, though it wasn’t until this past week that I heard an actual price tag placed on the cost of that lie.

In a radio program featuring Washington State Representative David Taylor, and former Representative Jason Overstreet, Representative Taylor revealed that the new state budget (which was passed with the support of 90% of republican legislators) increases taxes on Washingtonians by $17.5 billion over the next ten years. As Overstreet points out, Republican leadership…

Why Do People Fight to Justify Sin?

A good article from the Chairman of the Constitution Party of Washington, Bob Peck.

American Perspective

FightPeople can usually have a polite discussion about differences of opinion on issues that are of a nonmoral nature (what color to paint the house, should the new highway be two lanes or four), but when the conversation turns to a topic that is of an inherently moral nature (right vs wrong, something that must be labeled as either “moral” or “immoral”), one party usually becomes inflamed and will go on the offensive attempting to justify their chosen conduct. The current attempts to justify, and even normalize, homosexual conduct is a prime example.

Why do people feel the need to justify their conduct? If they really believe that what they’re doing isn’t wrong, then why care what other people think? Well, they do it for the same reason that a child caught with their hand in the cookie jar makes up excuses to justify what they’re doing – a guilty…

Christian Americans and the ‘Free Exercise’ of their Faith Now Equals Establishment of a ‘Theocracy?’

   After reading about Kentucky’s Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis refusing to issue marriage licenses to homosexual couples, invoking her First Amendment rights, I read the usual absurd Internet postings “Separation of church and state” and “There go the Christians imposing their faith again.”  But it was the online posting replies to presidential candidate Mike Huckabee speaking at a rally at her release from prison that I read this leftist rant: “Just more proof Huckabee and his ilk want to create a Christian theocracy.”

It reminded me of my 2014 campaign for Wisconsin state treasurer for the Constitution Party of Wisconsin (CPoW) and my participation in a candidate forum at Oshkosh’s City Cable 10 offices with another candidate.  One of the moderators was Tony Palmeri, writer to a regional free paper.  During the live forum, Palmeri told me he visited our party’s web site (www.constitutionpartyofwisconsin.com or cpowmilwaukeecounty.wordpress.com) and he asked me to explain our header: “We are a recognized political party in the state of Wisconsin, who proudly proclaims Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.”

He said between that and what he read in our “Who We Are” section that it sounded to him as though our party wanted a theocracy.

No matter what explanations I gave to prove that we Constitutionalists oppose theocratic rule, he continued challenging me, acting as though he “caught me” somehow.  Remember, according to the left, when Christians express their faith in the public arena, we are “imposing our faith” and attempting to “establish a religion” in America. What this man saw as something horrible, openly proclaiming Jesus as Lord and Savior, CPoW members and candidates wear as a badge of honor.  We don’t get embarrassed and try and silence our members when they talk about Jesus Christ like other parties do.

At the debate forum, there wasn’t enough time to fully expand on my and the Constitution Party’s opposition to theocracy, but now I can.

1)  CPoW and the national Constitution Party supported a republican form of government from our very beginning as the U.S. Taxpayer’s Party.  Our party literature, chairman’s letters, public speeches and our candidates support the original intent of the Founding Fathers including Article 4, Section 4 of the Constitution which states, “The United States shall guarantee to every state in this Union a republican form of government.”  Not a theocratic form of government, not a democracy but a republican government!

Part of being a Christian is having free will.  Forcing people to convert to someone else’s faith under pain of death proves nothing.  Give that person a choice and see if he comes to that faith willingly.  God gives each of us the choice to worship Him and repent.  I have always said faith is not real if it’s forced and that’s what a theocracy does, forces faith and worship.

Jesus said in Revelation 3:20, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock.  If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and dine with him, and he with Me.”  Jesus didn’t say, “If you don’t open your door, I will enter in anyway and force My will on you.”

If we were trying to impose a theocracy, no references to God or Jesus would be anywhere on our web site or literature.  We would hide our true intentions until we seized power.  CPoW opposes religious tests for office.  Theocrats support religious tests, don’t they?

2)  Whose religion will be chosen as the official one?  Lutheran, Catholic, Baptist, Methodist? The Christian faith has many different religious denominations and divisions within those (Lutherans have the Missouri, Wisconsin, ELCA Synods to name a few).   How far could a theocracy get in America?  No matter which denomination was declared the official Christian one, all the other denominations would oppose that denomination in favor of theirs.

To all the secular humanists who are screaming, “Separation of church and state!” anytime practicing Christians, especially ones in public life, invoke the name of Jesus Christ in public or dare to stand as lesser magistrates against ungodly, unconstitutional impositions on religious liberty, they have no clue how religious liberty has protected them.  Yes, protected them!  Are Muslims being forced to join a church?  Are atheists being detained?  Are Buddhists silenced?     If we were a theocracy like under Henry the VIII and his Church of England or nations under Sharia Law today, these secular humanists would know it.

This brings me to the final insurmountable obstacle against a theocracy succeeding in America…

3)  The American people will never stand for it!  It’s easy to impose oppression and tyranny on a people who have never known anything else.  Good luck trying to force theocratic rule on a people who grew up with a Bill of Rights, rule of law, and churches of numerous denominations peppered throughout the countryside.

First you would have to suppress all churches, mosques and synagogues in and install government-sanctioned churches in their place.  The real threat to American religious liberty is government intrusion into the churches, not the churches being anywhere near taking over the levers of government.

Let’s say the God-deniers and secularists are right and the Constitution Party is trying to impose a theocracy.  Let’s say a future Constitution Party majority in the House and Senate and our party’s president declared a Christian theocracy and banned all expressions of faith outside of Christianity.  Now no one can criticize the teachings of Christianity, using the name of God or Jesus Christ in vain would mean instant death and everyone is now required to attend church every Sunday.  The American citizenry would righteously rise up with arms and cast our party’s elected leaders and officers in prison for treason as they should.  Our party would be dismantled.

The secularist leftists will never stop trying to convince ignorant Americans that those whose faith in Jesus Christ extends from the churches and homes into their businesses and political life are the single greatest threat America faces and they must be driven from the public square.  We Constitutionalists aren’t guaranteed victory if we stand against these ungodly forces.  Our only guarantee in the fight for the Moral Order is defeat if we don’t fight back at all.

Andrew Zuelke is the State Chairman of the Constitution Party of Wisconsin and the Dodge/Fond du Lac CPoW Counties Chairman. The Constitution Party of Wisconsin is a totally pro-life, liberty and traditional marriage/values party whose goal is to get Godly constitutionally-minded people into office at the local, state and federal levels.  CPoW officers and candidates will never compromise on either God’s word or the Constitution.
