It's Time To Get This Country Back To Its Constitutional Roots
The road to hell is paved with compromise.
Our Founding Fathers got it right. It is incumbent upon every citizen to understand the Constitution and the intent of those who wrote it. Those who aspire to political office and do not subscribe to it completely can not be faithful to their Oath of Office, and should not receive the support of this political party.
The definition of "oath" as stated in the 1828 edition of Webster's Dictionary (the meaning as understood by our Founding Fathers): A solemn affirmation or declaration, made with an appeal to God for the truth of what is affirmed. The appeal to God in an oath, implies that the person imprecates His vengeance and renounces His favor if the declaration is false, or if the declaration is a promise, the person invokes the vengeance of God if he should fail to fulfill it. A false oath is called perjury.
Definition of "perjury": The act or crime of willfully making a false oath, when lawfully administered; or a crime committed when a lawful oath is administered in some judicial proceeding, to a person who swears willfully, absolutely and falsely in a matter material to the issue
So, what is the purpose of government? According to our Declaration of Independence, "...endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,...That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed." The purpose of government is to protect our God-given rights. The government gets it authority from "we the people." If we (or I) don't have the authority to do something, then we (or I) can not give that authority to my government representative.
Office holders who abuse their position by exercising authority they don't have are guilty of tyranny (Arbitrary or despotic exercise of power; the exercise of power over subjects and others with a rigor not authorized by law or justice, or not requisite for the purposes of government. Hence tyranny is often synonymous with cruelty and oppression.).
The Conservatives Creed
We do profess faith in one God, the Creator and Governor of the universe, the rewarder of the good and the punisher of the wicked and we do acknowledge the Holy scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be given by divine inspiration and that the Bible is the sole arbiter of right and wrong, good and evil. Therefore, 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 cannot be repealed or restrained by human laws, that among these are Life (from conception until natural death), Liberty (including the right to own Property), and the Pursuit of Happiness. The legitimate purpose of Just Government is to secure these Rights and when the government assumes other functions it is Usurpation and Oppression. Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, meaning all power and authority to protect and secure our God-given rights come from God to the individual and from the individual to his representatives in government through an expressed powers document called a constitution; thus, government officials are restrained from doing anything that would be wrong or immoral for the individual to do. This is a description of the American Republican form of government and this is the only form of government that we will support. Furthermore we do solemnly swear (or affirm) that we will support, defend, and promote these Biblical principles of freedom in exclusion of all others, so help us God.
