BEWARE: If Those Who Are Running For Office Are Playing Along Party Lines, They Are NOT There To Serve The People – They Are There To Serve The Party!
“Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful…, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. ”
With all of the information that has been brought forth over the last 20 years concerning the unconstitutionality of party affiliations, there is absolutely no excuse for those who are running if they are still playing the destructive divide and conquer game (Mark 3:25).
George Washington said, in his 1796 Farewell Address that political parties “are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”
He went on to argue:
“The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty.”
President John Adams provided a far more succinct comment on the matter.
“There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.” – Letter to Jonathan Jackson (2 October 1780), “The Works of John Adams”, vol 9, p.511
How is it that the unconstitutional, two-party system is set up today? It’s in contrast to the founders’ original intent (Jeremiah 6:16).
In the United States Constitution, Article 4, Section 4, US Constitution it states:
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive, against domestic Violence.
In conclusion: If those who are running for office are playing along unconstitutional party lines, they are NOT there to serve the people. They are there to serve the party!
