Time For Me To Step Into The Political Arena
By Helena Lehman

August 10th, 2007 - As I busy myself finishing my final book in the Language of God Book Series, I have found the Holy Spirit moving me to tell other believers that the time has come for us all to take an active interest in how our faith is played out within the scope of politics.

Though the world we know must end someday soon per the Bible's own testimony, that is no reason for us to sit back, and idly watch as our country, and the principles of its Christian founding fathers are completely eroded without our consent, or representation.

I, for one, will no longer sit idly by while the freedoms that my father and grandfather fought to protect are being stolen from us bit by bit. As US Citizens, we have an obligation to uphold biblical principles such as those written into our Constitution, and to peaceably petition the government, and the people of this country to strictly adhere to its mandates.

Without getting into a long-winded speech listing the evils and corruption being perpetrated by the two major political parties of the United States, or the shortcomings of the current presidency, or presidential candidates, I would like to introduce you to a political party that supports a firm adherence to the Constitution of the United States, and the Declaration of Independence.

After thoroughly reviewing their stated objectives, and political platform, I have decided to join, and support the Constitution Party in any way that I can. To that affect, here is a press release they recently sent me.

If you have any questions after visiting the Constitution Party web site, and reading the literature there, please feel free to post them on this board, and I will do my best to answer them.


INTRODUCING THE CONSTITUTION PARTY

Davy Crocket to Bono: “It’s Not Yours To Give”…

Lancaster, PA: 8/8/07- The Constitution Party joins Americans who champion limited government by condemning a recent Republican National Committee move. The RNC has endorsed a proposal by Irish rocker Bono to commit American taxpayers to spending $30 million to “eliminate global poverty”.

“As if any amount of taxpayer funds would actually accomplish that goal. What usually happens is the money extracted from us to fund these wealth transfers first fills the pockets of foreign dictators while barely a trickle ends up lining empty food bowls” stated Constitution Party National Committee Chairman Jim Clymer.

“History has shown us socialism does not work. Bono’s ill-advised scheme is socialism. The Republican Party has agreed to consign Americans to the same fate as other socialist countries with its recent endorsement of Bono’s global goody bag.” Clymer further added.

The Constitution Party, the third largest party based on voter registrations (Ballot Access News), points out that Bono, outspoken on environmentalism, global wealth transfer and socialist policies in general, owns several mansions throughout the world and travels by jet. The four engine jet he flies (while admonishing Americans to drive a hybrid) gets about 3 miles per gallon.

“What we now see is the GOP aligning itself with a man who advocates American taxpayers fund worldwide projects after he moved his lucrative music enterprise out of his native Ireland and to the Netherlands to avoid higher taxes” Clymer pointed out.

“The Republicans, the so-called party of ‘limited government’ whose control of the White House and/or both houses of Congress for a quarter century has resulted in quadrupled federal spending, would do well to heed the words of fabled frontiersman and Tennessee Congressman Davy Crockett. In the 1800’s this wise statesman said: “We have the right, as individuals to give away as much of our own money as we please… but as members of Congress we have no right to … appropriate a dollar of the public money… as… charity”. Crockett said these words after a constituent told him when it came to using taxpayer money for humanitarian purposes: “It’s not yours to give!”
