Every vote counts, they say. How on earth can you convince one that an individual's vote counts when you have told them that one person is worth nothing?
Only one religion promotes the Individual and that is the one that the Bible produces. Of course, you must have a majority of votes for the purposes of a Representative Republic, such as our founders gave us. But that majority is only perpetuated by individuals who believe they are able to make a difference and that the God of the Individual is behind them. Babel is collectivism; Christianity is antithesis to this.
A certain lady ran for office in the last election. The tally of her votes is anathema to all human calculation. Here is a lady who ran, not to promote herself, but God and country. She had no party backing, nor was she a fundraiser. She received more votes in some counties where she did not visit than where she lived. She spent under fifty dollars and that for gasoline. She ran no ads. Her platform was basic Americanism: the Ten Commandments, the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights. In spite of her political poverty, yet she received 3,017 votes. How?
Does money win elections? Evidently not, according to Ross Perot and Steve Forbes. If money could prevail, surely one of these men would have been President. And who can count the millions spent by the usurping Democrats of the Kerry campaign?
Usurping Democrats, you say? How so? Here once again are the words of a former Democratic President.
Harry S Truman's Address to the Attorney General's Conference on Law Enforcement, Washington, DC February 15, 1950. "The fundamental basis of this nation's law was given to Moses on the mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings which we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don't think we emphasize that enough these days.If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the State."
Americanism has been hanging on a precipice for some time. The Kerry Democrats were there to cut the rope. Whose vote counted?
