Taxed Enough Already = TEA Party
Today’s Tea Party movement is the contemporary revival of the signal cause of the American Revolution. The original Boston Tea Party was a protest over an unfair tax on tea levied by the British on the fledgling American Colonies which eventually led to the Declaration of Independence. One of the most famous quotations of the era was “No taxation without representation.” It is ironic that nearly 240 years later that the largest set of taxes in history are to be levied through The Affordable Health Care Act, aka Obamacare. Also, it was enacted without having been read and with ignorance of its provisions.
REPLACE AND REPEAL – Following the disappointing ruling of the Supreme Court, the remaining remedy to avoid this catastrophic tax is to replace the government. Before we can repeal the law and replace it with a better plan (as in the Romney slogan: “Repeal and Replace”) we must first replace the Senators who were for it and elect a new President. My appeal is to all patriotic citizens to rise up now to aid our country’s liberty, regardless of your faith or political party.
Secondly, I appeal to Christians. There are some political issues that I may hold my nose and support out of party loyalty or ideology. However, there are certain red lines that violate my Biblical faith. I appeal to Christians to bring God into the voting booth, because our nation’s liberty is on the line.
1. I will not vote for one who opposes Israel.
2. I will not vote for one who supports abortion (see NOTE below.)
3. I will not vote for one who supports infanticide.
4. I will not vote for one who dismisses the Biblical view of homosexuality.
5. I will not vote for a liar, whether in campaigning or in autobiography.
6. I will not vote for one who violates the First Amendment (freedom of religion).
Finally, every vote counts. North Carolina was carried by Obama in 2008 by only 14,177 votes. It is time for Christians with a Biblical world view to stand up and vote. But before that, register. Some are not even registered! Please help encourage your family and neighbors to vote this November. It is time for Biblical believers to wake up, stand up and speak up for Godly leadership. We in America live in a representative republic, which means our actions (or inaction) affects our leadership. We must vote and pray!
Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus. 1 Timothy 2:1-5
