Is the Presidential Election the Most Important Election

How important is our presidential election?  Is it more important than our local elections?  Let’s take a step back and look at the overall picture.

HierarchyGod created man* and endowed him with certain unalienable rights (life, liberty, property, etc.) To preserve and protect these rights, men got together and created government(s). In America, our ancestors created state governments. The states later got together and created a federal government, giving it very limited powers. So, the hierarchy is God, man, states, then federal.

Election Sovereignty FlippedSomewhere along the way, this hierarchy got flipped. Some people think that was about the time of the Act of 1871. Now many people buy into the false narrative that the hierarchy is Federal, States, then Man. Notice God is totally missing in this false hierarchy.  As if this wasn’t bad enough, they put the United Nations at the very top with the United Nations Participation Act of 1945.

Because so many people have forgotten the truth, they think that the most important election in America is that of the President. That would be true if our president was a dictator. (Which seems to be what many Presidents think they are with all of their “executive orders”.)

Local Elections are Important

The truth is, local elections are more important than the Presidential election. IF we were to elect honorable people to congress, then they would keep the President in check. IF we were to elect honorable people to our state government, then they would keep our congress in check. IF we were to elect honorable people to our school boards, then they would quit allowing dangerous propaganda in our classrooms. IF we were honorable, then we would keep our government in check.

The problem is that We the People have forgotten that God is at the helm, not the government. And WE are next in line. Remember the saying, “A Government of the people, by the people, and for the people.” The government is OUR creation, not the other way around.

Many times we hear lies that would impel us to believe that We the People are at the bottom of the pile. (If you tell a lie often enough, people start believing it.) Basically, we are told that we are a people of the government, by the government, and for the government. Please quit believing this lie. Government did not create you.  You do not get your “rights” from government.

As you vote in the election this year, please remember that YOU are voting for people to REPRESENT you, not to be over you.  YOU are the boss, not the servant. They are the public servants who report to you. You report only to God.

Vote for honorable people running for your local government positions. People who will adhere to the limited government tenets of our Constitution. If we keep only good people elected to local offices, then those people are the ones who will later have the credentials to run for federal offices, including President. If we ignore local races and allow in people who are dishonorable, then they are the ones who will be running for federal offices. They are also the ones who do nothing to stop the overreach of government.

Stand up and reclaim your sovereignty! If We the People would stop acting like servants, then eventually they would stop treating us like servants!

* By “man” I am referring to mankind, not the male gender.
Please re-read the Declaration of Independence and the Preamble of our Constitution.

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke. I think our Federal Government has grown out of control and I cannot keep my head buried in the sand and do nothing. This is why I do what I can to educate myself and share what I learn with others. This is why I seek out good candidates and do what I can to help them get elected.

“But how is this legal plunder to be identified? Quite simply. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them, and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime.” - Claude Frédéric Bastiat. I agree with Bastiat that if it is not legal for me to steal something from one neighbor and give it to another neighbor, then it is not legal for any public servant (elected to represent me) to steal from one and give it to another. Yet this legal plunder is quite common today.

“Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place.” - Claude Frédéric Bastiat. Government was created to protect our life, liberty, and property. Yet, what I see the Federal Government doing is pretending to protect “us” from all kinds of things, but by doing so they are destroying our life and liberty, and taking our property.

“If government makes everything illegal, then everyone is a criminal.” - Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin. There are so many laws, rules, regulations, ordinances, acts, statutes, and whatever else you want to call them, that it is impossible to know them all. How many “criminals” do you know? Are you a “criminal”?
