VIDEO Let’s Celebrate Independence – Why the Founders Did Not Want a Democracy

By Reverend Paul N. Papas II

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

— That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed….”

This is a well known part of the document we celebrate its signing this week.

This great country from sea to shining sea may not be perfect….but it is made up of imperfect people. Even the fellow veterans I know agree this is the greatest country on earth. We like to remind people: these colors don’t run!

In this country we have the freedom to address issues in a peaceful manner. This freedom came at a high cost. Many fought and died for our freedom. VA Hospitals are full of my fellow Vets who receive medical care. I am sure they would appreciate a thank you as could all our men and women in the U.S. military.

Yes we still have unalienable rights and I want to address liberty and the pursuit of happiness today, along with safety. If one does not feel safe then they neither have liberty nor happiness.

You should be all you can be.

There was a Bishop of the Church of England who often liked to explain what freedom really means. He came from and was a Bishop to Africa and his story is compelling. He had been kidnapped by slave traders and put aboard a ship to be sold as a slave. A British ship captured the slave-trading ship and returned all the people back to their African homeland.

The Bishop liked to tell people no one knows freedom until it is taken away. No one knows freedom unless you were shackled to other men in the bottom of a ship and have them get sick and die while shackled to you. He had been freed by the British ship and later became a Bishop of the Church of England to Africa. He knew the real meaning of freedom and was not afraid to talk about it.

I would call what happened aboard those slave trading ships torture.

Today there are people being tortured and held as slaves in their own homes.

Today we call it domestic violence. Thankfully there is a lot being done to help the victims, but not enough to stop the cycle. Perhaps the new White House appointment will address that.

Today there are many disabled who are being left out of our protection. People become disabled for many reasons, some from birth, and some by accident. The disabled seem to be on the top of the list when it comes time to cutting funds.

There are some disabilities that evoke empathy and a rush to help. There are some that people would like to hide away.

When was the last time you saw a march, rally or walk to help those suffering from a medical condition of a mental illness being covered by all the media. However if a person who committed a heinous act should is found to be suffering from a medical condition of a mental illness, then that makes headline news.

We still have unalienable rights, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and safety among them. That goes for vets, domestic violence victims, the homeless, and those who suffer from a medical condition of a mental illness to name a few.

Let us all pause and take a moment to remember we’d all like to celebrate our independence together on an even playing field.

How Do You See Your Future?

By Reverend Paul N. Papas II
30 November 2010

Fear of the future phobia is a very common phenomenon. Your future is that particular part of your life which you have no definite idea. In fact, it is one of the major human characteristics of the fear of the unknown and the unseen. Now the question is why should you be afraid of your future? This is principally because of the unstable present and the struggling past years of life. With today’s uncertain time in wake of high unemployment and the still sinking housing market the future can be really scary.

During the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair, a group of social analysts gazed 100 years into the future and tried to forecast what the world would be like in 1993. Some of their predictions were:

* Many people will live to be 150.

* The government will have grown simpler, as true greatness tends always toward simplicity.

* Prisons will decline, and divorce will be considered unnecessary.

They were wrong on all counts! So, what does the future really hold? We don’t know, but one thing is certain and that is, change is constant. Some people do have a hard time dealing with change.

We know that the social analysts at the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair were wrong from our observations. We judge our situation for ourselves when our life turns upside down and everything seems out of control.

We can give way to fear and panic, or we can choose to have faith that our future has a light at the end of the tunnel.

Existence has become a matter of competition where you can be afraid of failure, but there is also a fear of success.

Every time you stand up you grab the future in your palm. For some people it seems as though that every time they stand up to grab the future it slips out of their hands, which for them, could lead to a fear of the future phobia.

Fear of the future phobia is quite alarming. The fear of what may happen in the coming years can drive people in such as state that become frozen in place or develop various medical conditions which could include mental illnesses.

What may happen to you in the coming years and where you may see yourself standing in the future are some of the most important questions you may have in your mind.

Until and unless you find yourself stably positioned in your life you become too worried and excited. The thought of what might happen in future can even cause death.

When you sit down to talk about your future phobia you have to take into consideration the three stages of your lives, the past, present and the future.

You always learn from your past for a better present. When you are able to analyze the present properly, you can arrange and prepare yourself for the future.

Future phobia is especially intense with those who have just started a new business with zero revenue, zero consumers and zero start up funds or when the bottom drops out of a business.

The businessperson may have invested everything he had and then suddenly he starts being afraid of future failures in life.

What Can You Essentially Do To Avoid Fear Of The Future Phobia?

• Firstly, in order to rid yourself from phobia you should try to understand your own potentials and eliminate your phobia with help.
• You should create the future you desire in your mind through the process of visualization.
• Plan for your future achievements. Your effort should make your dreams turn into reality.
• Believe in yourself and try to be successful in life.

Future phobia is most common among the teens. Teens are in most cases adventurous and always ready to discover the undiscovered and see the unseen.

Now mad enthusiasm can lead to utter destruction if not systematically handled and programmed.

The young generation needs an appropriate guideline to succeed in the future. It is very important to remember that resource without experience and knowledge can often prove to be damaging.

Moreover, for some once they fail it is very difficult for them to stand on their feet and thus they quite easily slide themselves into fear of the future phobia.

This country was built by men and women who overcame great obstacles to give us the Republic we now have. If they could overcome great obstacles with much fewer resources than we have today, then we too can overcome the many obstacles that face us and keep our Republic.

You can be stuck in the past or frozen in place or you can get up on put one foot in front of the other, walk up to the door, put your hand on the door handle, turn the handle, open the door, walk through the doorway toward the future and close the door to your past behind you, freeing yourself.

Our Republic

Psalm 36:1-4

“Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts. They have no fear of God at all. In their blind conceit, they cannot see how wicked they really are. Everything they say is crooked and deceitful. They refuse to act wisely or do good. They lie awake at night, hatching sinful plots. Their actions are never good. They make no attempt to turn from evil.”

As the battle for our Nation’s future continues, I am once again reminded of Benjamin Franklin’s challenge to the American people. At the conclusion of our Founding Father’s Constitutional Convention, Franklin was asked by a woman waiting in the crowd outside, “What kind of government have you given us?” Franklin answered with both a challenge and a rebuke, “A Republic, if you can keep it.” Freedom, like the Gospel, must be preached and practiced or else it will grow old and wither away.

“Facts are stubborn things,” said John Adams. But sadly, we have lost our appetite for truth. We have become a nation unworthy of the very freedoms we enjoy in this God-given republic.

Most today, but thankfully not all in the United States, are civically ignorant of their constitutional rights and biblical calling. Uninformed to the point that they have no vision nor understanding of what to do with them. They are willfully blind, having resigned themselves to 15-second sound bites promulgated by those who are themselves blind. To that end, Psalm 36:1-4 speaks to me about those boldly and brazenly committing acts of deception, lying, cover-ups, and fraud. They are, in short, political jihadists.

During these days, I have dedicated my morning hours to intercessory prayer for our Nation. I teach and preach that Jesus Christ could return at any moment for His Church in the Rapture (Titus 2:13), yet I must also occupy in this world until He comes. I must be busy about my Father’s business in all things, obedient to live it out now.

In the next several weeks your life and mine are about to be changed forever. The coming persecution and violence can only be met with an equal resolve to preserve our liberty and freedom for our children and our children’s children.

Truth is active and the pursuit of it is a vigorous ethos. Christian, be ready to defend your faith, family, and freedom. Someday, our children will ask us, “What kind of government have you given us?” May our answer to them be, “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

Is It Anti-American to Fight Vote Fraud?

by Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.

I feel disenfranchised with last month’s vote because of such apparent widespread voter fraud in six key swing states. But the media—et tu, Fox News?—says, “There’s nothing to see here. Time to move along.” As of this writing, 40 court decisions seem to agree with them.

Thank God for the alternative media which is a lifeline of information, which big tech, big media, and the cultural elites are doing their best to suppress. But you can’t suppress the truth forever.

A congresswoman from Florida says that Trump’s attempts to expose allegations of voter fraud are undermining our nation.

Stephanie Murphy (D-Florida), whose family fled Vietnam in the late 1970s, is a U. S. Representative in the greater Orlando area. She said, “My family fled a communist dictatorship, so I’ve never taken America’s democracy for granted. The President’s claims of election fraud are discredited and dangerous, nothing more than a cynical attempt to subvert the will of the American people.”

She was responding to this tweet (12/1/20) from NPR that said the election was fair and not stolen. NPR Politics: “‘This was a secure election,’ Christopher Krebs, the former top federal government election security official, said. ‘That is a success story. That is something everyone in the administration should be proud of.’”

•Forget those suitcases captured on video brought out in the middle of election night in Atlanta, presumably chock full of Biden ballots.

•Forget all those dead people that voted in Pennsylvania—even people who lived through the Civil War.

•Forget the Detroit Democrat poll-workers who muscled Republicans out of the room in the middle of the night and then taped up the windows so no one could see what was going on.

Gary Bauer notes (12/3/20): “…in numerous progressive cities, left-wing operatives systematically threw out GOP observers one by one. The vote counters, who are government employees, often erupted in applause as the conservatives were shown the door.”

Forget all that—nothing to see here. Time to move on. To question the mainstream media’s coronation of Joe Biden as president is “dangerous,” says Rep. Murphy.

Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis have held hearings providing all sorts of evidence of voter fraud that took place primarily in the wee hours of the early morning of November 4 in key swing states such as Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Arizona.

Regardless of one’s opinions on Donald Trump, I would think virtually all Americans of good will would oppose election fraud. Election security is critical.

Giuliani said, “I would never have my name associated with something false.”

I showed my wife a compilation of highlights of the Giuliani-Ellis Michigan hearings of alleged voter fraud. After a while, she almost wept, wondering how this could happen in her adopted country? She was originally from Norway and gladly became a U. S. citizen many years ago.

Democracy is messy. But to ensure voter integrity, it’s worth sorting through this mess. 

One man noted, “If we don’t root out the fraud…we don’t have a country anymore.” That was Al Gore in 2000. But in the case of Al Gore’s challenge of Bush’s victory—which was predicated on Bush’s taking Florida—Bush won every single vote recount in Florida. Every single one, even those conducted by liberal (anti-Bush) newspapers, like The New York Times.

Jenna Ellis said “We’re a nation of rules, not a nation of rulers.” Ellis referred Americans to look up Federalist #68, which I did. This “Federalist Paper” was written by Alexander Hamilton, and he states: “…every practicable obstacle should be opposed to cabal, intrigue, and corruption.” He calls these underhanded deeds the “most deadly adversaries of republican government.”

Was there a cabal at work in the wee hours on the day after the election to bring in bundles of thousands of votes for Biden in the key swing states?

Twenty congressmen are demanding voter integrity, especially after they saw the footage of the Georgia suitcases. They wrote an open letter (12/4/20) to Bill Barr with this lead: “Dear Attorney General Barr, Two pillars of a successful republic are election integrity and confidence in our democratic processes.” [Emphasis theirs]

Gary Bauer notes (12/6/20), “After the election, a shocking 70% of Republicans don’t believe the 2020 election was free and fair. That number is up from 35% prior to the election. And another poll revealed that a surprising 30% of Democrats believe it is likely the election was stolen from President Trump! These figures undermine confidence in our electoral process.”

Congresswoman Murphy is wrong. Until the many allegations—including more than a thousand affidavits where many people (including Democrats) report on the cheating they themselves witnessed on behalf of the Biden campaign—have their day in court, it is not “dangerous” to explore these accusations. It is dangerous not to.
