Do the People Want a King?

When the United States of America was formed there were many forms of government that were considered. One of them was a monarchy but this was the very type of governance that they were fleeing. They established a republic in the hopes that this was what would be the best for all the people. Something that would give them all the chance of a future without being under the thumb of rulers that had only their own interests in mind most of the time. They did not want the people to wind up a nation of servants.

And yet here we are. Our leaders have brought us to the very place that we ran away from. The place that many of the founders laid down their lives and fortunes to give us something better. Not only did they sacrifice, but a selfish and self centered nation is in the process of erasing them from the very history that they sacrificed for. They are being repainted as selfish men who had no other desire than to profit for themselves, without any real regard to the true history that shows how much they actually lost in money and life.

The people of this country have given control to a few men and women who lie to them with glib tongues and illusions to make it appear as if they themselves are not responsible for anything and that it is always someone else fault. That if we don’t give them what they want we will be destroy. A constant fear being laid upon our souls as if they are the only thing that stands between us and eternal destruction. And if anyone thinks that I am referring to any particular party here, I am not. Neither of them know how to lead. None of them seem to even understand and care how the country was founded or the sacrifices that were made.

Instead the current generation is so far from the sacrifice as to simply be greedy hogs simply looking for the next way they can profit from our despair. They use fear as a tool and our money to line their own pockets. They lie as fast as they open their mouths and tell anyone and all whatever they think that will get them what they desire. They take no responsibility for their own actions, even when those actions cost the lives of so many good men and women.

The have abdicated their own power for profit, or grabbed power that they have no right to in order to subvert the Constitution and enslave the men and women that they took an oath to protect and defend. They give away our secrets to our enemies, turn their backs on our allies, and destroy our country in so many ways that it is impossible to keep up with. They are constantly imposing new regulations than cripple our economy or stifle business’.

With the stroke of a pen our President declares that abortion must be made available and therefore anyone who doesn’t wish to provide is in the wrong and must pay through the nose. If this were anyone else, forcing their ideas upon some other country, they would and have been declared dictators. And yet somehow because he was elected President those that approve of his actions, go right along, even though the previous President was maligned right and left for doing similar actions.

Since when does two wrongs make a right? Since when is it okay for someone to break the law simply because they are on the other side of the fence? Should we not hold our own leaders to a higher standard than we hold the rest of the world? Since when does it become alright for our guy but not for yours? Evil is evil no matter who commits it. Wrong is wrong no matter what letter comes after their name as in political party.

The people of this country voted for a President!! A man to lead them not a man that they were expected to serve. We voted for a continuation of our county. We were not asked to vote for a monarchy!!!! And yet it seems as if that is what our leaders feel is due them.

When the people of Israel decided that they wanted a King, God warned them of what to expect. It looks an awful lot like what we have right now. The difference is that we didn’t ask for it and it is being forced upon us.

1 Samuel 8

Good News Translation (GNT)

10 Samuel told the people who were asking him for a king everything that the Lord had said to him. 11 “This is how your king will treat you,” Samuel explained. “He will make soldiers of your sons; some of them will serve in his war chariots, others in his cavalry, and others will run before his chariots. 12 He will make some of them officers in charge of a thousand men, and others in charge of fifty men. Your sons will have to plow his fields, harvest his crops, and make his weapons and the equipment for his chariots. 13 Your daughters will have to make perfumes for him and work as his cooks and his bakers. 14 He will take your best fields, vineyards, and olive groves, and give them to his officials. 15 He will take a tenth of your grain and of your grapes for his court officers and other officials. 16 He will take your servants and your best cattle[a] and donkeys, and make them work for him. 17 He will take a tenth of your flocks. And you yourselves will become his slaves. 18 When that time comes, you will complain bitterly because of your king, whom you yourselves chose, but the Lordwill not listen to your complaints.”

  1. A good presentation, thank you. I’m glad you didn’t refer to the administration as being stupid, inept, or ignorant of the Constitution. They are none of those things. They are purposefully undermining the Constitution because the ‘Progressives’ (Communists, Liberals) have taken over the Democratic and Republican parties, along with the major media and the education system. It appears that they are also Islamists (evidenced by their promotion of the Muslim Brotherhood and all policies (immigration and others) that are opposed to Christianity. I am tired of hearing ‘conservative’ commentators fight the useless battle of trying to pound logic into the heads and convince the left-wing of the errors of their way. They know exactly what they are doing, and they are very good at it. They need to wake up and call TREASON what it really is.

    • I agree totally and it really offends me when people try to excuse their actions by saying that they do not really understand what they are doing. They do and have always understood exactly what they are doing. It is quite deliberate and I agree, it is treason, a deliberate destruction of a country from withing the very leadership that swore an oath to protect it. However I also truly do not think that there are enough people who want to keep it the country it is supposed to be, for it to correct it’s course. God bless you Woody Stone and may the New Year bring you many blessings!

  2. Spot on post! Loopy, I totally agree with what you and Woody Stone stated in the comments. These people are indeed purposefully undermining the constitution. They believe the constitution limits their power too much, the power they want to be able to control the people. Obama is not a constitutional lawyer, he is an unconstitutional lawyer. Obama has violated the constitution so many times it is unbelievable. Even the GOP hasn’t respected the constitution as they should. Plus, the GOP are wimps for not standing up to the President and for the people, especially with regards to the HHS mandate. If I was in Congress I would make it clear that I would not work with the President or Democrats until the administration fixed the mandate to respect everyone’s religious liberty.

  3. I just hope that the elites in Washington on both sides start thinking about where we are headed instead of what they want!
