Whither Our Republic?

Four days have elapsed since the fateful election of November 3rd. Events will continue to unfold, and I will keep a steady and critical eye on them, as I am sure you shall.

If the refrain in your head is “These are the times that try men’s souls” by Thomas Paine, you are not alone.

Many are asking “What is to be done?”

Part of the answer will be a continuation of the program of change I began to author earlier. We the People will have to remind those whom we elect that they work for us. We will have to become more strict with them, because politicians of all types have forgotten that they serve at our pleasure, and as their failures increase in magnitude and scope they put us all in further jeopardy as they erode their own legitimacy through their haughty foolishness.

For now, join me in encouraging everyone to live lives centered on faith, family, liberty, and stewardship. Keep faith alive, believe in God’s promises of freedom to us. Be ready when the time comes to use your pen and your phone, and most of all your vote. Believe that we the faithful acting in earnest will restore the legitimacy the principalities have lost.

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

Ephesians 6:12, New International Version

As it was in Anno Domini 60-61 when Paul wrote to the Church in Ephesus, just 62 years–one generation–after Rome itself had ceased to be a republic; so it has been through the ages; and so it remains for us in our blessed land, in our own republic, if we can keep it.

    Yeah, loving your constitutional deep dive. I’m starting to think you should run for office, Chris.

    Principled and thoughtful politicians are in short supply!

    Thanks for the vote of confidence, Jim! 🙂
    For now I think I’m going to take up study of public administration. I think I may have a thesis in mind!
