Elections.. when the E-word makes its rounds through the circuits of the so-called Conservative, along on its arm often arrives the well-groomed battlecry "Take Back America".. and they're quite the pair. Mr Election.. a big spender with all your patriotic dreams on a string.. and Miss TBA - she's a real knock-out in her sparkly Freedom frock and Bill-Of-Rights sash as she smiles and laughs and stamps her foot, announcing that "We need to take back this country!"
A nice couple.. or so it would seem.
November 2nd is Election Day for many in the United States.. and the electricity of Mr. Election and the emotionalism of Miss "Take Back America" stride full through throngs of voters who deem themselves "Conservative Christian".. Patriotism flares high, and Victory and Defeat will both make obligatory appearances by the end of the show.. and over the next two years as we draw nearer and nearer to that prime 2012 Presidential Election Day, amidst the ebb and flow of all else worldly, from today forward, there will be more and more appearances made by the captivating Mr Election and the empassioned Miss "Take Back America".
This country's government has now been long-touted as an originally Christian inception.. an ideal that was set up to be Good and Right.. a ruling system that glorified the Creator, and gave liberty to those who were oppressed by the ungodly. For all most are taught.. the United States was founded on principles rooted in solid Christian soil.
There are large active organizations of Christians, and so-called Christians, who have chosen to stand under banners of loyalty that range from Constitutionalism to Patriotism, and everything purportedly "Conservative" in between.. and there are large active, if less refined, organizations of self-styled 'truth-seekers' and 'alternative' news groups. And there is the Ron Paul Camp.. and there are the Tea Partiers.. the Libertarians.. and the Constitutionalists.. there are those who only vote Pro-Life and those who only vote Republican. Politically, for Believers today, there is just about everything.. and it's all wrong.
This is a plea for reason and sanity - a call to mental arms.
Over the next two years, while the concern of the people around you vascillates between the Presidential Election, the Stock Market and Earth's latest disaster, please recall that our Savior warned of a Beast System which would encompass the worldly leadership and populous who do not abide in Him. In light of that truth, consider these facts as you make your way through them, and remember that "Greater is He that is in you than he who is in the world."
Fact 1: Your Individual Presidential Election Vote Does Not Count.
"The Electoral College consists of the popularly elected representatives (electors) who formally elect the President and Vice President of the United States."
"The election for President and Vice President is not a direct election by United States citizens."
"Electors are free to vote for anyone eligible to be President.."
"The Twelfth Amendment provides for each elector to cast one vote for President and one vote for Vice President."
"Numerous constitutional amendments have been introduced in the Congress seeking to alter the Electoral College or replace it with a direct popular vote; however, no proposal has ever passed the Congress."
"Even though the aggregate national popular vote is calculated by state officials and media organizations, the national popular vote is not the basis for electing a President or Vice President."

Surprised? So was I, in 9th grade Civics class, when we learned about something called the "Electoral College".
So how are you supposed to 'Rock the Vote' when your vote doesn't even count? The answer is - You Aren't. It was not meant for your vote to count.
Fact 2: The Original Constitution was Nullified - "The US is a Corporation
This fact is summed up by Lisa Guliani.
"Don't point to that beloved parchment, the Constitution, as a symbol of your enduring freedom. It is representative of a form of government which seemingly no longer exists in this country today. The Constitution has been thrown out the window, the Republic shoved aside and replaced with a democracy. The thing is; most people in this country remain unaware that this is so because they simply do not know the truth — what lies beyond the myths. Your so-called government is not going to tell you, either.
To even begin to understand what has happened to the Republic, we must look backward in time to the period following the Civil War. We must go back to the year 1871 [...]
So, let's roll backward into the past for a moment. It is time we learned what they didn't teach us in school. It is far more interesting than what they DID tell us. I think you'll stay awake for this lesson.
The date is February 21, 1871 and the Forty-First Congress is in session. I refer you to the "Acts of the Forty-First Congress," Section 34, Session III, chapters 61 and 62. On this date in the history of our nation, Congress passed an Act titled: "An Act To Provide A Government for the District of Columbia." This is also known as the "Act of 1871." What does this mean? Well, it means that Congress, under no constitutional authority to do so, created a separate form of government for the District of Columbia, which is a ten mile square parcel of land.
What??? How could they do that? Moreover, WHY would they do that? To explain, let's look at the circumstances of those days. The Act of 1871 was passed at a vulnerable time in America. Our nation was essentially bankrupt — weakened and financially depleted in the aftermath of the Civil War. The Civil War itself was nothing more than a calculated "front" for some pretty fancy footwork by corporate backroom players. It was a strategic maneuver by European interests (the international bankers) who were intent upon gaining a stranglehold on the neck (and the coffers) of America.
The Congress realized our country was in dire financial straits, so they cut a deal with the international bankers — (in those days, the Rothschilds of London were dipping their fingers into everyone's pie) thereby incurring a DEBT to said bankers. [...]
There has to be some sort of collateral or some string attached which puts you and me (the borrower) into a subservient position. This was true back in 1871 as well. The conniving international bankers were not about to lend our floundering nation any money without some serious stipulations. So, they devised a brilliant way of getting their foot in the door of the United States (a prize they had coveted for some time, but had been unable to grasp thanks to our Founding Fathers, who despised them and held them in check), and thus, the Act of 1871 was passed.
In essence, this Act formed the corporation known as THE UNITED STATES. Note the capitalization, because it is important. This corporation, owned by foreign interests, moved right in and shoved the original "organic" version of the Constitution into a dusty corner. With the "Act of 1871," our Constitution was defaced in the sense that the title was block capitalized and the word "for" was changed to the word "of" in the title. The original Constitution drafted by the Founding Fathers, was written in this manner:
"The Constitution for the united states of America".
The altered version reads: "THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA". It is the corporate constitution. It is NOT the same document you might think it is. The corporate constitution operates in an economic capacity and has been used to fool the People into thinking it is the same parchment that governs the Republic. It absolutely is not.
Capitalization — an insignificant change? Not when one is referring to the context of a legal document, it isn't. Such minor alterations have had major impacts on each subsequent generation born in this country. What the Congress did with the passage of the Act of 1871 was create an entirely new document, a constitution for the government of the District of Columbia. The kind of government THEY created was a corporation. The new, altered Constitution serves as the constitution of the corporation, and not that of America. Think about that for a moment.
Incidentally, this corporate constitution does not benefit the Republic. It serves only to benefit the corporation. It does nothing good for you or me — and it operates outside of the original Constitution. Instead of absolute rights guaranteed under the "organic" Constitution, we now have "relative" rights or privileges. One example of this is the Sovereign's right to travel, which has been transformed under corporate government policy into a "privilege" which we must be licensed to engage in. This operates outside of the original Constitution.
So, Congress committed TREASON against the People, who were considered Sovereign under the Declaration of Independence and the organic Constitution. [...]"

Fact 3: You Are Traded on the US Stock Exchange by the US Corporation
"Here's something you were NEVER told when you were a kid, nor where you told when you grew up and started work. At birth, every human being is registered as a corporation. Your Birth Certificate is a business
license. You National Insurance (SSN/SIN in USA) is your bond account - if you have one, you're being traded on the stock exchange.
When currency went off the gold standard, it had to have something of value to back it, i.e. collateral.
That object of value that replaced the gold standard is the citizens of the country, their life time of labour has value.
Your social security is actually a security bond, of value. Human beings are chattel, traded as a commodity like livestock.
Your birth certificate is actually a business license. A corporation was created with your name when your birth was registered.
You and everyone else actually have an entry in the stock exchange. (the value of) Humans are traded back and forth.
When the Chinese make a loan to the US, the interest they are paid back is the value of all those human corporations.
The value is based on your lifetime of labour contributing to the economy.
By the time you're forty years old, the security bond named after you
has a value numbering in the millions of dollars."

Fact 4: You Can't Take Back America
Hopefully the small amount of preceding information has left you disillusioned and you are starting to wonder what terms like "Old Glory" and images like the "Statue of Liberty" really mean - since it's clear that none of it is Your Freedom. As believers, we are called to learn and understand the truth of a matter.. and without any of the above sad facts, with nothing other than a bible, any believer could discover the truth that the United States Government, and any other political organization in the world, had its beginning in sin and will have its end in it as well.. and that no one who claims loyalty to Messiah should have a place in any of it.
You can't take back this country because this country never belonged to 'we the people'.. no organized political system in control of any landmass has ever been the property of or governed by 'the people'.. and no amount of voting or petition-signing can bring back something that was never lost. This country has never changed hands, and never will until the day Messiah returns and establishes His physical reign on Earth.
Our Creator was our governing ruler until the day politics overtook Israel.
"..I will set a king over me like as all the nations that are about me.." Deuteronomy 17:14
Was this a good idea? But many believers have fallen into thinking that by political activism they can accomplish a righteous rulership on Earth.. even though our Savior has told us that all the Earth's rulers would give their strenght to the false Messiah. Revelation 17
Most would believe there are "elements" of corruption within government.. but that the "heart" of the government is "pure".. that deep down inside Uncle Sam just wants what's best for you. But governing bodies other than the Most High, have been wicked from the start and instead have only ever had their own best wishes for themselves.. an insurrection that hopes for total world control.
Before The US.. before Israel.. there were the days of Jared when the 200 rebel Watchers came down and enslaved mankind.. before the Watchers there was Satan.. and Satan started with the first two human beings.. and hasn't stopped since.
Think about your real agenda as a believer on Yahushua and the next time you see Mr Election or Miss "Take Back America".. ask yourself if a worldly government is something worth fighting for or if loyalty to your Savior is something worth dying for.
"These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." John 16:33
