Republicans Fight for Democracy

A New York Times reporter claimed the Republican Party is turning against Democracy. Among several problems with that statement there is at least one that we will examine.

First of all, it was a lie. Worse than that it is impossible. Let me explain.

Democracy is defined as, ‘a government by the people, especially: rule of the majority.’

When our country was founded, and our forefathers wrote the Constitution they purposely decided that Democracy as defined above was not the right way to go. Instead, they chose a radically new idea: Representative Democracy.

Now to be fair, the average liberal or Democrat probably thinks that Democracy and Representative Democracy are the same. They are not. In true or pure Democracy, the majority of the people rule. There are no representatives chosen to speak on their behalf. The people rule.

True Democracy is best found in a mob. There you have a large group of people and usually one or just a few people who control it. The mob decides issues by what appeals to them. Reason and debate generally are absent. One reason is mob rule usually means one thought or direction; dissent is not allowed.

Representative Democracy, which our founders wrote into the Constitution, is totally different. In the United States Constitution, we have a Legislative Branch consisting of a House of Representatives and a Senate. We also have the Executive Branch (President) and the Judicial Branch (Courts). These three branches form a Constitutional Representative Democracy sometimes called a Republic.

But for many years, actually decades, our schools, news media, and the Democratic Party have blurred the distinction. In some cases, this was simply ignorance (never having been taught otherwise), but more and more it has been willful.

Now that we live in a society under the control of the News Media, Social Media, and Liberal political forces, the blending has been largely successful. So, it is possible that the reader of this article believes that Democracy is what we have.

Why is that important?

It is important because believing in Democracy as the rule of law is believing in a Constitution as defined by Nancy Pelosi and friends. Not the written Constitution, such as I own a copy of, but a Constitution that is ever evolving according to the will of the people as led by them. Or, put succinctly, mob rule.

Now back to the article.

We now live in a society where words and phrases we grew up knowing are being turned on their respective heads. We no longer have men and women as defined by birth, but now we have people born of one sex and later deciding they are of the other sex. The Bible calls this immoral and confusion. And we are seeing this played out right before our eyes.

But that is not all. We call abortion a right and we deny any rights to the unborn. We call Socialism, which can be termed the government taking away our hard-earned money and property, moral. But hard work, loyalty, and doing your best are considered outdated.

Unfortunately, the News Media and the big Social Media giants encourage this change. And they don’t like dissent. Which brings us to the true nature of Democracy. Namely, that it is a dictatorship. I said earlier that Democracy is like a mob. But there is always a leader of a mob and the mob follows the leader without thinking. So-called thinkers of the mob repeat ad nauseum whatever the leader says.

This kind of thinking is apparent in the Letters to the Editors where liberal contributors repeat as fact what NBC, CBS, ABC, along with CNN and other networks say. Especially if it came from the DNC. It doesn’t matter if what is being said is the truth or not, what matters is that the agenda is being promoted.

Perhaps you have heard the term ‘pack the court.’ This term is speaking of the Supreme Court and means that you increase the number of justices until you have enough that agree with you. It makes the Supreme Court irrelevant. I believe this scares our so-called conservative justices and explains their inaction in the last election.

The Republican Party is not perfect. It isn’t even close to perfect. But it believes in the sanctity of life, morality as defined by the Bible, a strong work ethic, the resilience of the American people, the Middle Class, and the Constitution of our forefathers.

What does the Democratic Party believe?

It believes it is fine for a person born a male to decide he is a female and then compete in female sports, thus destroying women’s sports. (By the way, the argument that women can compete against men equally is unsupported by biology or history.)

The Democratic Party also believes that stealing is fine as long as it is for a good cause. They talk about ‘fair share’ when in fact they want the rich to pay not just more, which they already do, but at exorbitantly higher tax rates.

In conclusion, it is the Democratic Party that is undermining Representative Democracy. They are in fact, using the tools and power of Representative Democracy to destroy itself and then turn the country into a dictatorship of mob rule whereby they run things.

This is their vision of the great new world.

A Look Forward

The Riddle Report 12 26 2020

Christmas is past and New Year’s is right around the corner. Confusion reigns as the country wants to know who won the 2020 Election. Although the media says it was Biden and call him President-Elect the results have yet to be verified and acted upon. It looks like we might not know until January 6th or even later.

All of this makes it hard to predict the future course of our nation. We can make some general predictions. For example, if President Trump gets reelected we can expect a rebounding economy that will shock the experts. Why? Because he did it before when he took a stagnant economy (Biden’s pride and joy) and transformed it into a booming economy. We can also expect Trump’s international successes to continue, again because he already has done much internationally. That includes Mideast peace moves.

On the other hand, if Biden/Harris (I use this designation because we don’t know how long Biden will last) are elected we can also make some general predictions. Although our economy is struggling due to uncertainty about the election and Covid-19 it is growing faster than economists have predicted. But assuming Biden/Harris follow through on their campaign promises, then the undergirding of our economy will be ripped away. We can expect fracking to be stopped, thereby once again making us dependent on OPEC. As they enact their Green New Deal we will see businesses once again leaving and probably never again returning to America. We can also expect unemployment, which is currently coming down slowly, to start rising again.

And of course, there is Biden’s health. How long would he be able to act as President? When will Harris push him out? We simply don’t know.

But all of that is conjecture. One thing we can be certain of is that when Harris becomes President she will be an activist President and lead us to disaster!

The truth is the election results are unknown. While there is plenty of evidence of election fraud, it must be examined, and determinations must be made before true results finally are known. So, we wait.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t like waiting. This is particularly true when waiting on people. I try to be patient, but it doesn’t always work. Nor am I fond of waiting on God.

But while not fond of waiting on Him, I know He will act for my own good (Ro. 8:28). That makes waiting easier. So, in the case of the Steal, I am praying that He will act to prevent it and that we can have 4 more years of a government that at least honors His will.

But, folks, we have no guarantee of that. God sent the Israelites into judgment because they refused to worship and obey Him. This happened several times, and even now they are still under judgment. The day will come though when Israel will be back in His good graces.

America has slipped a lot since our founding fathers. Back then men and women worshipped, honored, and obeyed Him. He granted us victories we should not have won, protected General Washington more than once, and watched over our fledgling nation in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and many others. But like the Jews of the Bible we have turned from Him and may well be in the crosshairs of judgment.

So, what do we do?

Well, for me and my house (consisting of my wife and me), we will wait on the Lord. But not just for election results. We will pray, serve, and wait on Him.

We will Pray for:

  • Our own health
  • Others’ health
  • Our church
  • America

We will also continue to serve Him in:

  • Church
  • Business (writing & and helping others to write and be published)

In other words, while we have little control over the election, we still have control of how we live and serve God. While I believe a Biden/Harris Presidency will be bad for our country, I also believe that God is in charge. He may allow Biden/Harris to rule, but He always has the right and the power to overrule!

I recently heard a man preach that there will never be another worldwide revival of the Christian faith. He may be right, but the Bible tells us to pray for our nation, our rulers, missionaries, evangelists, and the furtherance of the Gospel. Our faith is proactive!

Pray for revival and then find out what God wants you to do.
