Message to Uncle Saul: It’s not over until America is free again
And if we the people think we’re free, we have very low expectations. If all we want out of life is to go to work 9-5, come home, have dinner, fall asleep in front of the idiot box with a 6-pack, and repeat process tomorrow, then Uncle Saul is our man. He will make that happen for us and all the while, we’ll be singing his praises and having barbecues in his honor for the life of liberty and abundance he has graciously granted to us. After all, how gracious a keeper he is to let us keep half of our property.
But we need to open our eyes. We need to be made aware that the founders of this country waged war against a tyranny that amounted to a fraction of the oppression exercised by the American Federal Government today.
Once our eyes are open, what we need to do next is repent. How did we get here? Over the course of the last two centuries, we have slowly turned away from the worship of the one true God to the worship of demos. This is why spreading democracy sounds so much better to us than spreading theocracy. We don’t want Theos to rule over us. We want to rule ourselves. This is why we are all too happy to celebrate America’s holydays and violate God’s Sabbath. This is why it is of no offense to us when an alleged “neutral” education, provided by this messianic government, fails to acknowledge the greatness of our God in all subject matter, and thereby teaches the insignificance of our God in all subject matter. And this is why God is giving us over.
1 Samuel 8:7 And the LORD told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; … they have rejected me as their king. 8 As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you. 9 Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will do.” 10 Samuel told all the words of the LORD to the people who were asking him for a king. 11 He said, “This is what the king who will reign over you will do: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots. 12 Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. 13 He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. 14 He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. 15 He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. 16 Your menservants and maidservants and the best of your cattle and donkeys he will take for his own use. 17 He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. 18 When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, and the LORD will not answer you in that day.”
This is exactly what Saul (among other wicked kings) did to God’s people (1 Sam 14:52; 1 Sam 22:7; 1 Kin 21:7; Ezek 46:18), and it is precisely what Uncle Saul is doing to us today. Note how in God’s economy, 10% taxation is included in His threat to give His people an oppressive governing authority and is said to be the equivalent of slavery. 10% tax was still considered oppressive in America until the War Between the States when taxes became as high as 10% to contribute to the war effort, and that only for the wealthiest of Americans. Now half of America’s income goes to Uncle Saul in the form of taxes to local, state and federal bureaucracies.
10% taxation is oppressive as well as blasphemous for one simple reason: the tithe. God himself requires as an act of worship, a tithe of all his people’s first fruits. When Uncle Saul begins requiring that much and more, he is essentially claiming to be God and requiring us to worship him with a percentage of our increase. And that is what this government has done, affording it the means to pursue other global messianic ends. This is why, as the mp3 linked above exhorts, if we are not giving God his tithe, we have no room to complain when this government takes five tithes from us. This is what God said He would do to us if we reject Him as King. We need to repent of our false worship and return to the living and true God. Only then will any effort like the one promoted next be of any benefit to us.
The political party of Reagan died with him. I am sad to say it, but it is true. The party that stands in its place can hardly be said to be standing for liberty. They would merely aim their tyranny in a different direction than their liberal counterparts. So the choice this election seems to be, “Which tyrant do we want to rule over us?”
But the party can be resurrected and along with it, the liberty it once stood for. Join the Revolution.
