Inaguration Of Tyranny, Part II

Two things that are common misconceptions among conservatives.....and really burn me up! Gravelbelly said, in the comment box of my last post,

I think conservatives have been misled for over a generation. They think they can reduce gov't by voting the right candidate into office. Using politics to cure statism is like using gasoline to fight fire.

This is a really interesting observation and very true. I've heard over and over again, "Oh, if we could just vote so-and-so into office he (or she) would fix this problem". Christians should know better than that!
But because they don't study History, which is full of so-called "conservative" rulers who turn against the Law of God, they are deceived. Take Charles II for instance. He signed the National League and Covenant, a covenant between Scotland and England, which states:

That we shall sincerely, really, and constantly, through the grace of God, endeavor, in our several places and callings, the preservation of the reformed religion in the Church of Scotland, in doctrine, worship, discipline, and government, against our common enemies"

Charles Stuart later became one of the greatest "common enemies" of the Covenanters. They falsely believed that, since he had signed the Covenant, he would be true to his word. They were wrong.

When the "right person" is elected to office, we need to be ten times more critical than we would if the wrong person is elected to office. Wolves are easier to spot than wolves in sheep's clothing.

Here's the second problem I have. Oftentimes, I will be telling someone who I support for a certain office, and they say, "Oh yeah, he's great, but you would just be throwing away your vote, if you voted for him. He'll never win". The main reason I don't like this is because that's a pretty common response, even in Christian circles. It shows how weak and compromising even people who call themselves by the name of Christ are. The second reason ain't true!

History shows it!

The first sodomite legislator in Alabama was thirty votes! How pathetic! How many of those pagans were told that their candidate would never make it? I'm not sure, but I guarantee you that many were told that. But a minority, dedicated to principle, made a difference.

These two things, I think, are the greatest reasons for compromise, and result in the bad guys winning every time, and thus, tyranny gains a deeper hold, like it will this next election.

How true it is. You really can't trust anyone.

The current government is destructive, plain and simple.

The only way to totally free ourselves from its grip is to leave it.

The Ozarks are nice this time of year!
