The Grey Point

Tired of the idiocy that is the fake left-right conflict? Let's face it. The Neocons are knee jerk reactionary nuts using counterfeit Christianity as a basis for their agendas and Liberals are bleeding heart, over emotional, tree hugging, UN loving hypocrites. The Independent Party are water carriers for the Republicans, and the enviromentalists are funded by big government. It's time to speak the truth. It's time to enter THE GREY POINT.

Democracy vs Republic

Well, I'm back. I've been going through some rough times with the passing away of my mother and my graduation. I'm taking a "gap year" between graduation and going to college, because I truthfully have little idea of what I want to be. I'm planning on doing something such as programming or game designing, while minoring in art perhaps. Taking classes in religion like alot of young Christians do is okay, but I don't feel I was called up to be a preacher or a missionary. I'll continue to pray and fast, in hopes that God can give me some guidance into what He might want me to be. I hope you'll all pray for me, and all of the other kids my age that are in my same position. For now, however, since all of my school work is done and I'm not tied down with a job or a hectic social life, I can get my driver's license and hopefully, as I've prayed diligently, meet a nice girl who shares my common interests. I think I've met her already, but only time and patience will tell. Anyways, onto my first post in a looong while.

When you go out on the streets and ask anybody what form of government we have here in the United States, the chances are they'll say "a Democracy". The term Democracy seems to be a hot new word that politicians and arm chair activists are using quite alot. We went into Iraq to supposedly "spread Democracy", and we continue to try and "spread Democracy to other nations". But just what is a Democracy? Justice Robert Jackson once said, " "If there is any fixed star in our Constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein." What our government should truly be called is a "constitutional republic". A Democracy is majority rules. As I've said before, the majority of Americans are so-called conservative Christians, and thus we have a president as such, who uses his "Christianity" to "make the right decisions". Apparently bombing houses in Iraq and killing hundreds of innocent women and children with cluster bombs is something that God told Bush to do. Is it? No. Bush is about as Christian as Aleister Crowley in a devil costume. The same man who, like many "conservative Christians" in Washington, goes and professes his love for God and faith in Him, will gladly go to Bohemian Grove every year with all of the drinking, mock human sacrifices, and male prostitutes.

But anyways, just why is a Democracy a dangerous thing? Because if it was possible that, say, illegal aliens or what-have-you were the majority of the population, our Constitution would be distorted to allow foreign born "citizens" to become president, and the figurehead of our nation would be just as Mexican as
Carlos Mencia. This is dangerous, because it isn't about all the people, but simply the majority, which could be some 50% of the population. What about the rest of the population? This is why it is vitally important that you teach your kids and inform your friends and family about how when somebody calls the US a Democracy, you can see past the phoney wording and tell them how it is. We're a Republic, ladies and gentlemen, and that's a fact. That is the form of government our forefathers intended for us to be, and that is the form of government we are today, despite what popular thought may be. In Federalist Paper #14 Madison wrote, “The true distinction between these forms...is, that in a Democracy, the people meet and exercise the government in person; in a Republic they assemble and administer it by their representatives and agents. A Democracy consequently will be confined to a small spot. A Republic may be extended over a large region.” On World Newstand, they said it best: "The socialistic nature of our present-day government would have been abhorrent to Madison and the other Founding Fathers. Government’s function should not be to level the people to an equal mediocrity, but to ensure a level playing field upon which added effort or superior talent results in increased reward. That is the philosophy that built America and made it great." Whether we call it a "Democratic Republic", a "Constitutional Republic", or a "Republic", I can safely assure you at our great, wonderful nation isn't a Democracy. Far from it, we're a Republic, and that's that.

Now, as I leave from this blog to write my book, "Prometheus", I leave you with this tidbit. After about fifty years of denying the existence of God and promoting atheism, Anthony Flew at 81 (a prominent figure in the promotion of atheism and debater for said religion) renounced atheism. (http://www.godandscience.org/apologetics/flew.html) In this own words, he said,
"...the argument to Intelligent Design is enormously stronger than it was when I first met it" and ""It now seems to me that the findings of more than fifty years of DNA research have provided materials for a new and enormously powerful argument to design." Also, he had this to say, "It has become inordinately difficult even to begin to think about constructing a naturalistic theory of the evolution of that first reproducing organism." Wow, think about that. A world renown atheist renounces atheism, claiming that the evidence for evolution has weakened over the years, and the evidence for creationism has strengthened. Now, I stopped doing religious discussions on my show mostly due to my busy schedule, but I'll tell you what. We followers of God have the Bible, a flawless literary piece of history and evidence of God's Master Design. If the atheists can come up with some sort of concrete evidence that Evolution is true, then I'll put my foot in my mouth for once. Charles Oxnard (1975), in a paper that is widely cited, came to the conclusion, based on his multivariate analyses, that australopithecines are no more closely related, or more similar, to humans than modern apes are. Independent scientists without the presupposition of atheism or Evolutionism, across the board, are coming up with the same results. Maybe it's time that Evolutionists answer the challenge of famous Creationist scientists and, once and for all, have an intelligent discussion with both sides presenting their arguments. The top atheist scientists have even been challenged by creationist scientists, yet have refused to answer the challenge. Truly, Evolutionism is the anti-biology of our world.
