Wise Government 13

Dear Mr. Washington,

“The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were...the general principles of Christianity.” J. Adams

Power Will Return To The People

Tea Parties and other patriotic Americans are fearful of the decadent path the nation is treading and, in particular, the pervasiveness of the federal government.

The citizenry, thanks in large part to the Tea Parties all across the nation, are rising up to take back their country.

There remains, however, one major question that needs to be answered: Will they vote third party?

Voting for the same old, tired policies is not going to change anything. Don't let the Republican Party fool you about smaller government. There are many statements within their party platform that indicate that they, and of course the Democratic Party, are intent on maintaining a large federal government including continued dominance over education.

Read their party platforms and you will see only one is intent on paying off the National Debt - the Constitution Party.

The only way there will be the type of political change that is needed, the type to implement TCM Power Principles as envisioned by the Founding Fathers, will be to vote for a third party. It was done right before the Civil War and ushered in Abraham Lincoln. It can happen again!

More than merely voting though, it will also take an active electorate. The citizenry must get involved in the party of their choice, run for office (there are hundreds of local elected positions in each county), support godly candidates – and then keep a close eye on them.
