Joseph of biblical fame was made ruler of Egypt after passing a test of character by fleeing the immoral advances of his employer's wife; and then serving well while imprisoned on false charges. His moral choices saved two nations....Egypt from famine, and that of his family, Israel.
In modern times, we keep choosing leaders for high office who make a career of failing such tests; and then wonder why our nation is in such trouble and can't seem to solve its problems, regardless of which party is in power. Where is that "light from above"? If we pamper or exhibit too much patience for the weak and degenerate, they become a cancer on the nation.
From Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson to Clinton, McCain, Guilani, Gingrich, and perhaps others; we've chosen leaders who failed the Joseph Test. Why elect those to office who can't even remain loyal to their spouses, and then expect them to be loyal to our Constitution?
Both parties have set a new standard for moral decay. You must either be a womanizing-adulterer or loyal to the homosexual agenda in order to lead either party. Huckabee and Romney were definitely "no John Kennedy"!
Those who were known for being loyal to their spouses were not allowed to advance to the presidency in the Republican Party. President Obama may be the exception for the Democrat Party, but he is a leader of the "gay" movement. Besides, who wants to tick of a wife with a law degree?
The tenets of the supposed dead system of Communism(socialism) promotes homosexuality, pornography, promiscuity, and adultery as normal, natural, and healthy. Julia Brown, in her book, "I Testify", says, "The Party not only tolerates and encourages, it demands that members engage in illicit sex acts. Talk about "sleeper" agents!
"The 5000 Year Leap", written by Dr. W. Cleon Skousen, lists these first four principles of successful government(out of 28):
1) The only reliable basis for sound government and just human relations is Natural Law.
2) A free people cannot survive under a republican constitution unless they remain virtuous and morally strong.
3) The most promising method of securing a virtuous and morally stable people is to elect virtuous leaders.
4) Without religion the government of a free people cannot be maintained.
The basic goal is to destroy a nation from within by destroying it's cornerstone institution, the family. As Josef Stalin said, "America is like a healthy body and its resistance is three-fold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these areas, America will collapse from within."
Judge them by their works. Such people tend to get VD of the brain when leading nations. Kennedy and Johnson gave us the Vietnam War. How can such people defend us from our enemies, both foreign...and Domestic?
As Wm Penn said, Tyranny begins where God leaves off." Do you want to live in a nation... not under God? If so, go there; if not change your ways. Neither party will allow a presidential leader who has not compromised his virtue. The more they do, the more they shout from the rooftops that only THEY can save the world!
Samuel Langdon, a Congregational minister from Massachusetts, was instrumental in convincing the citizens of his state to become the ninth required state to ratify the U.S. Constitution. He said in his famous speech, "Let not men openly irreligious and immoral become your legislators;... for how can you expect good laws to be made by men who have no fear of God before their eyes, and who boldly trample on the authority of his commands?"
Samuel Adams said, "Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt." As George Washington in his era said, "a decay of public virtue has fed the hopes of the enemy....cannot our common country, America, possess virtue enough to disappoint them?" Though a sensitive subject for discussion, this topic clearly shows who are Patriots....or patsies!
