The Jeffersonian: An Open Letter to Christians regarding Decision 2008

The Jeffersonian: An Open Letter to Christians regarding Decision 2008

I was determined to leave the Republican party and change my affiliation to the Constitution party when Ron Paul came along.

If Ron Paul doesn't seem like a Republican to you. It's because he's a "true" or "classic" republican, what many homeschoolers may well deem a "Jeffersonian Republican." Jeffersonian Republicans believe that government that governs least, governs best.

Ron Paul is nothing like the men in high office who currently disgrace the idea and name of republicanism. But Ron Paul is an elderly Congressman, a gracious and genuine statesman with a proven record that may be able to restore some of what the world is crying for -namely freedom. Yes, people in nations around the globe long for freedom. Freedom is popular!

Not the kind of "freedom" President Bush endorses, nor the kind that other so-called Republicans(aka RINOS -Republican in name only) have torn down and done so much to destroy. No, Ron Paul is a man who stands for true liberty and true freedom, a man the Lord can use for this hour to help restore freedom in the land by restoring the supreme law of the land, the United States Constitution so help him God. (I believe some saints who are called by that name have been obeying II Chronicles 7:14 for quite some time and that the end result at this point is that America has an opportunity to elect a real American for President in Lord knows how many years.)

Many Americans clamour about Democracy(Is is my understanding that Democracies are easier manipulated whereas Republics are better safeguarded from the evil machinations of men) when in reality, America is a "Republic." Ron Paul tells a story in a speech here:

At the close of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia on September 18, 1787, a Mrs. Powel anxiously awaited the results, and as Benjamin Franklin emerged from the long task now finished, asked him directly: "Well Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" "A republic if you can keep it" responded Franklin.
