Why Do You Vote?

Our founding fathers did not look on Christianity as a religion but rather a way of life. That was the basis for the foundation of our nation. Religions were the man made groups that were set up to worship in many diverse ways. In plain talk, the first amendment to the constitution prevents the federal government from setting up a form of or restricting the forms by which we worship and fellowship.

In 1947 the ACLU joined the Ku Klux Klan and justice Black of the Supreme Court to erect a wall of separation between church and state that never in our history existed. The ACLU submitted a friend of the court brief in the KKK case claiming this wall of separation.

Those of you with differing beliefs and non-belief are welcomed among us by the grace of God and our founding documents. Keep in mind that our founding documents state that our rights are granted by God and not man. What cannot be tolerated are those who would undermine the basic tenets on which our country was founded.

“God, in his providence has given unto us a Christian nation and it behooves us as Christians to prefer and to select Christians to rule over us.” John Jay – First chief justice of the Supreme Court.

John Jay along with Hamilton and Madison wrote the “federalist papers” which were used to explain to the states the reasons to ratify the constitution. They knew what the constitution meant and explained it in these papers.

Why would it be better to have a Christian leader? Because the tendency would be for them to have basic Christian principals, beliefs and value system. But ‘it ain’t necessarily so!’ It’s just that the chances are better. President Jimmy Carter is a good example. He professes to be a Christian yet he is obviously an anti-Semite. The Bible says that Christians are grafted into the vine of Judaism and therefore Christians are Jews. Again, the KKK has it wrong, claiming to be a Christian group and yet hating the Jews (Of course they hate a few others like the Catholics the blacks, and on and on.) despite the fact that Jesus was a Jew. Is there anything the man can’t get wrong?

Our Constitution defines what our rights are and that they are granted by Providence. Just what is it that we are willing to give up by bypassing the basic foundations of our country? I saw a college professor on TV the other day that stated that all of our founding fathers were atheists. Examples like this are rampant throughout our educational system. Is it any wonder our children are having trouble picking right from wrong?

Islam wants to destroy Israel because Israel knows the one true and living God. The God of Israel is the “God of our fathers” because we are a Christian nation. The Muslims know this even if some of us don’t. That is why we are second on their list for destruction.

Our courts are not functioning the same today as they did for the first one hundred fifty years of our history. The founding fathers set up the court to be controlled by the constitution not by precedent. Today they are even using precedent to establish laws never intended by the founding fathers. By judicial fiat we are now enjoying the inclusion of such things as the “Wall of Separation”, abortion on demand, prayer removed from schools and changes in the marriage laws.

I don’t consider myself to be either a Republican or a Democrat. I rather look on myself as a traditional constitutionalist with a Christian point of understanding. As I enter the voting booth, I think of what is best for the American way of life. America is without a doubt the greatest nation in the history of the world. What we need to keep in mind is what is best for America as a whole, rather than what is best for every little self centered group. United we stand and divided we will fall. The United States of America – all for one and one for all. Give me your tired, your poor, those yearning to be free. If you want to be an American then welcome to the country. If you want to establish a foothold for your culture here or adapt our culture to suit yours, don’t come here. America is a melting pot, not a multi cultural conglomeration.

America has been blessed by providence because of the way it was set up by the founding fathers. We have been able to be the most generous nation on earth because of the fine foundation on which we were established. Failure to understand why we are blessed is the first step in loosing what we have.
