What the Tea Parties could accomplish
April 9, 2009
 

"Death is more eligible than slavery. A free-born people are not required by the religion of Jesus Christ to submit to tyranny, but may make use of such power as God has given them to recover and support their liberties..."  The men of Marlborough, Massachusetts who took part in the Boston Tea Party 

The current initial Tea Parties have successfully drawn attention in expressing discontent with government at all levels. The momentum is building and April 15th may well be a turning point in transforming “We the sheeple” back into “We the people.” 

"No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders." Samuel Adams 

The overall statement of the Tea Parties must not only be one of discontentment against “our elected officials,” but must produce an incentive and common goal that every American who can vote, will vote.

"Providence has given our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as privilege and interest, of a Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers." John Jay

Will the Tea Parties produce a greater number of those who possess the same Biblical moral virtue of America’s Founders than that of today’s “politically correct” secular progressives?”

The only way to prevent what Thomas Jefferson warned, that "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants” is by what he also said: “Should things go wrong at any time, the people will set them to rights by the peaceable exercise of their elective rights.”  

"A compromise which results in a half-step toward evil is all wrong." Theodore Roosevelt. 

The challenge: How many gun owners do not vote? Yet their “right to keep and bear arms” is being “infringed.” The same can be said of apathetic Christians who forsake Christ’s call to “rebuke and reprove the world of sin,” yet repeatedly vote for incumbents who align themselves with anti-faith, anti-family factions.  This apathy and complacency is just as culpable as it has allowed the “progressive” left to dominate and replace the American Way of Life with the Politically Correct Way of Life.  The mainstream news media, public and “Higher” education, and now government have become deceitful indoctrination tools in the quest for historically failed socialism, as well as for unproven theories such as global warming.  Until “We the people” rebuke and reprove this secularism in favor of the same Biblical moral virtue of America’s Founders, our descendants will never experience the liberty that comes from God. 

"The rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God." John F. Kennedy 

Will the Tea Parties of 2009 result in “We the people” vowing to vote against incumbents across America, the tax and spend liberal socialists masking as Democrats and the RINOs masking as Republicans? Any politician that compromises the fiscal, military, and moral well-being of a free America and free enterprise needs to be replaced for a return to a government of, by, and for the people and not of, by, and for the government and funded by subservient tax payers. 

"I place economy among the first and most important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers to be feared. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and in our comforts, in our labor and in our amusements. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy." Thomas Jefferson 

President Obama has said America is not a Christian Nation. This display not only reveals his ignorance of America’s Heritage but his total disregard of the myriad of Founders quotes stating just the opposite.  He is the secular left’s quintessential byproduct of their deliberate and intentional rewriting and omission of history. These misleading deceptions are by design, for the purpose and advancement of “progressively” transforming America from a Republic and “liberty from God,” to that of a tyranny, where liberty is mandated according to secularism. 

"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ! For this very reason people of other faiths have been afforded asylums, prosperity and freedom of worship here." Patrick Henry 

"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure...are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments." Charles Carroll  

"The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity.""Let the pulpit resound with the doctrine and sentiments of religious liberty. ... Let it be known that...liberties are not the grants of princes and parliaments."  "[D]emocracy will soon degenerate into an anarchy, such an anarchy that every man will do what is right in his own eyes and no man's life or property or reputation or liberty will be secure, and every one of these will soon mould itself into a system of subordination of all the moral virtues and intellectual abilities, all the powers of wealth, beauty, wit and science, to the wanton pleasures, the capricious will, and the execrable cruelty of one or a very few." John Adams
