Social Justice

         Social justice is a catch phrase for the progressive movement.  What they mean by social justice is redistribution of wealth.  The true definition of social justice, as given in the Bible is, he who will not work should not eat and he who cannot work should be given help.  Guess whose wealth they want to redistribute?  Yours!  With 47% of our people paying no income tax and 20% getting back more than they pay in, isn’t this what is already taking place?  If you paid income tax last year, you paid for the 47% who didn’t.  A truly American sentiment recognizes the dignity of labor and the fact that honor lies in honest toil.”[1]Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.”[2]

               When you voted in the last election, did you vote for governmental ownership of the auto industry, the banking industry, the insurance industry, abandonment of long standing international commitments, or reduction of our nuclear status?  I know that I didn’t.  I do believe that the other side was headed in the same direction but would have done it slower.  A world without nuclear weapons would be less stable and more dangerous for all of us.”[3] I can’t find anywhere in the Constitution that the government should be involved in private business.  How dare any of our elected and appointed government officials as well as bureaucrats ignore the founding principles of our nation?  Shame on them!  Shame!  Shame!  Shame!  The main purpose of our federal government is to protect us from our enemies, both foreign and domestic.  At present we are snuggling up to our enemies and rejecting our historical friends, such as Israel.  The Lord, in reference to Israel said-“I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”[4]  Our president says; ”I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”[5] Our rights, given to us by God, have been being eroded away by several administrations.  Our domestic enemies seem to be in positions of power in the government.  The fox is in the hen house and is in the process of swallowing all of the chickens.

          I have said in the past that our most powerful weapon was the vote.  I have come to realize that I was wrong.  The most powerful weapon we have is prayer.  The most powerful thing we can do is pray.  "But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.”[6]   We still retain the right to vote them out of office.  Praying does not relieve us of our responsibility to vote. “You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it.”[7]

          Progressivism, Socialism, and Marxism, as far as I can determine, all basically have the same general philosophy.  They are all anti God, anti personal responsibility and support dependence on the state.  If the government is restricting our religious rights, they are treading on illegal ground.  There is no doubt that the United States was founded as a Christian nation, therefore any limitation placed on the practice of the Christian principals on which it was founded is treason. 

          “A nation will not long survive when it begins to think of its government, not as a watch dog to be fed, but a cow to be milked.”[8] “What we hear today is that the purpose of the government is benevolence.  Now that is a very pious word and it would seem that no one could speak against it and yet that is not the biblical teaching concerning government.  The Bible is filled with benevolence, but it is not state benevolence that is being spoken of, it is individual benevolence.  Since government has nothing of its own, if it is going to give something to somebody else it must first take it from another party and therefore it enters into the realm of plunder.  Socialism really is legalized plunder.”[9] Marx said “If you think you’ve misunderstood me that I want your private property, you haven’t misunderstood, that’s exactly what I want, I want the abolition of private property.”[10] Engles said “We want to sweep away everything that claims to be supernatural and superhuman…for that reason we have once and for all declared war on religion and religious ideas…”[11] On the other hand our founding fathers believed that “Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.”[12]

          The determination as to if one is a patriot or a revolutionary is determined by the observer.  Although Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Riley among others, are accused of being bigots, hate mongers and racists it is my opinion that they are patriots.  Put what they say to the test of truthfulness and determine for yourself.  Don’t swallow the pap you are being fed by the other side.  Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.”[13]
