A serious division exists in our country which threatens our very existence and the freedom we have enjoyed over the past several decades.

This division comes from different opinions that separate those who look back to Christ and His teachings: "Love God with your whole heart and soul and your neighbor as yourself," and the recent growing conviction that secularism is the modern way to organize society, that man himself must be looked to for answers. Thus, socialism is turned to for the solutions needed!

A nation's choice will determine which of the above solutions is selected. A claim made by a Prof. Tyler in the late 1970s that a democracy cannot last more than 250 years before the demands of its citizens for gifts from the national treasury force its bankruptcy.

But this will happen only if the nation has a structure that looks like: "Man ---> Government."

This democracy gives man the sole choice of the system he wants, as contrasted with that "democracy" of our founders that looks like this: "God ---> Man ---> Government," better labeled a republic, as noted in our Declaration of Independence: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. To secure these rights, governments are instituted among men..."

The choice is obvious in my opinion!
