Loyalty Test: You Fail!

The argument is simple and straightforward. Read NoOneOfAnyImport post and check out her link.

Consider. If we want things to be our way — if we want to live according to our own consciences — then we must vote against candidates who openly advocate and seek to implement a Socialist agenda. What this is about is majoritarian tyranny. In addition to being foolish (Socialism doesn’t work as an economic system.), it is evil. Tyrannical systems, even supposedly democratically elected tyrannical systems, do not permit individuals the freedom to exercise their own consciences.

Whatever Trump’s faults, he isn’t advocating a Socialist agenda. The odds are in fact good that Trump will try to reverse the growth in the power of our government. However, if Trump is to succeed, we have to help him and each other.

      One of the commenters at NoOneOfAnyImport’s post left this. I decided it was too good to pass up.

      As I have said, there are two points or two characteristics of the Radical programme which it is your special duty to resist. One concerns the freedom of individuals. After all, the great characteristic of this country is that it is a free country, and by a free country I mean a country where people are allowed, so long as they do not hurt their neighbours, to do as they like. I do not mean a country where six men may make five men do exactly as they like. That is not my notion of freedom.

      We will never have a government that totally represents us, and the more we insist that it does, the more noxious we will find it. We are electing men, and we are not angels.

      Consider that God does not need our vote. We need His, and it is up to each of to seek Him in our own way and at our own expense.

      1. The struggle, at this point, is not finding a government that totally represents us, but one that represents us at all. Hence why I ditched the false dichotomy we consider the two major parties.

      2. Upon rereading your comment, I realize that it basically said, “Compromise your values because having strict standards is too hard.”

          You feel compromised because you cannot impose your moral standards upon other people? That’s just strikes me as arrogant. Since He created us, I sometimes wonder how God puts up with our behavior, but it is my own behavior that most concerns me.

        2. “You feel compromised because you cannot impose your moral standards upon other people?” That is a great straw man you constructed to tilt at; it must be easier to defeat than windmills.

    1. Except now, like then, the dichotomy was false. The vast majority of Americans took no part in the Revolution and lived quite happily both prior to and after the war.

        1. The American colonies were not going to perish due to British taxation or even invasion. While it’s role in drumming up support for the Seven Years War where an imminent invasion from Canada was occurring was valid, its subsequent use has largely been as a propaganda piece.

        2. Not hate. Just honest. I admitted that the Seven Years War presented a clear and present danger to the colonies as the French and the Indians were invading.

          In the American Revolution, however, submission to Great Britain was not really going to do much in the way of destroying them.

          Furthermore, those numbers on the American Revolution’s numbers don’t paint an accurate picture. The Continental Army never had, at any given time was 17,000 men.

          The 13 colonies each had their own military forces. Considering their were only about two people in the 13 colonies, those stats indicate it involved large number of Americans. Were 217,000 deployed or in service all at the same time? No, but thousands died and trade was disrupted for years. The war made for chaotic conditions that left no one unscathed. For most people, it was the crisis of their lifetime.

          Anyway, I have not got time to chase you down every rabbit hole. So this is all I have to say about it.

  1. I would be interested in your opinion of my post comment to pick one issue to vote even though you do not support either Clinton or Trump. One is going to be president regardless.

    If you decide to accommodate me and read the post, would you then answer these two questions?

    Would King Solomon consider you to be a ‘wrecker?’

    Which one would be the greatest dichotomy in your personal political or views to further our nations future and posterity?
