In the Fight for Life and Liberty, the Federal Government Is the Enemy
The Texas Governor
reports that on Feb. 24, in a private meeting with governors, Obama revealed
that he does not trust the governors to make decisions in their state about
education and transportation. The law, of course, puts the jurisdiction
for those issues squarely in the statehouses, but for "the greater
good," Obama wants control.
The increasing centralization of government in Washington is the gravest threat to the future of liberty. Those who don't learn from history are bound to repeat it. Recall that most of the mass murders in the 20th century were perpetuated by socialist and communist governments imposing their rule on their people by force, justifying their usurpations in the name of fighting terrorism and protecting the people from emergencies, frequently legalizing their tyrannical actions in advance. But not everything that is legalized is lawful. When justice finally prevails against tyranny, nooses are hung up outside of courtrooms holding "Nuremberg trials."
Our forefathers strongly
warned against consolidating power in D.C. That's why they limited the
federal government to specifically enumerated powers, and any power not specifically
granted to the federal government in the Constitution does not belong to it,
but belongs to "the states, or the people" (Articles IX and X of
the Bill of Rights). Vague descriptions of government obligations are not
specifically enumerated powers, and do not give the federal government unlimited
power to do whatever it wants in the name of what it considers the "general
welfare" of the people.

Prosperity through Obedience
The following article was written from my 14-year-old daughter Charity, about a novel she read Uncle Tom's Cabin.
When Americans owned slaves, a popular fallacy was, without slavery, our nation will fail. In Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin, we see a complete failure of Americans to protect life and liberty, and a lack of trust in God to care for them when they submit to Him. History and scripture have deemed it obvious that only when nations follow God's law and obey Him, will He bless them.
God will not allow a nation to prosper when they reject Him. God clearly states in his word, "If ye turn away, and forsake My statutes and My commandments, which I have set before you and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them; Then will I pluck them out by the roots out of My land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for My name, will I cast out of My sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations." George Washington said, "The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained."
