We evangelicals were ecstatic several years ago when the majority of us saw such a promising Republican candidate for President in George Bush. The majority of his promises and proclamations were in lockstep with our beliefs, so we voted him into office twice. He has done some things right like his response to 9/11 by sending troops to Afghanistan to strike back at the Taliban and his nomination of two conservative judges who eventually were confirmed as Supreme Court Justices.
However, like any human being he has shown himself fallible or downright disappointing with many of his other actions, much to the chagrin of evangelicals. Much of our disappointment with him has to do with his policies on trade, immigration, and government spending. Now that his administration is coming to an end, we are once again searching for strong conservative leadership. Unfortunately, there isn’t much to choose from in the present pool of candidates. Even if there were and we elected him or her to office, we would still have some major disappointments. Why? There are forces at play internationally and domestically to influence our President that circumvent or trump the will of the American people. If you haven’t noticed, since the 1980s the U.S. Presidency has little by little become more concerned about taking steps toward globalization while chipping away slowly at the importance of preserving the sovereignty of the U.S. and its citizens.
It’s a good and necessary thing for us evangelicals to make our voices heard to preserve some semblance of godliness so our nation will continue to be blessed by God and to preserve our Constitutional rights. Nevertheless, whether we vote for a Democrat or Republican, we will still end up with policies put into effect by the President that will advance the goals of having a one world government with a one world religion. Democrats and Republicans will still have a few differences like abortion, gay rights, and government spending, but there are other major policies that both Democrats and Republicans will attempt to force on American citizens to promote globalization that will whittle away at our constitutional rights.
Those policies include the following:
- The continued establishment and enforcement of free trade agreements. It is argued that the U.S. economy is strengthened by such agreements through the creation of more jobs and the expansion of industries. Then economists who support such policies tell us to look at how strong the U.S. markets are. But they conveniently downplay the fact that the middle class and manufacturing are shrinking or that the gap between the rich and poor is widening.
- Delaying and discouraging steps to remedy illegal immigration. We are told that illegal immigration is a complicated situation to handle and there is no easy way to discourage it. The only reasons we are told this is because certain wealthy government officials or their friends have benefited in some way from illegal immigrants. Although there has been a crackdown recently on illegal immigration which proves that the problem can be alleviated, the federal government is moving toward a North American Union to unite Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. Therefore, a major crackdown on illegal immigrants would hamper those plans, which leads me to the next policy.
- Establishing a North American Union. The leaders of the three North American nations want to unite their governments to compete with the European Union and to establish one currency, the amero, to compete with the euro. This agreement would call for opening up the borders by reducing the need to go through customs when a citizen of one country wants to travel to another country or when goods from one country need to be shipped to another North American country. The idea may sound practical on its face, but the ultimate goal is to make us bow down to the sovereignty of a one world government via the UN. This is why the Bush administration refuses to defend or pardon the border agents who were thrown in prison for shooting a border-crossing criminal which was part of their job. This is also why the Bush administration is presently fighting for the convicted rapist/murderer and illegal immigrant, José Medellín, imprisoned in Texas claiming that the Texas courts should follow the ruling of the UN’s International Court of Justice after Mexico’s government sued the U.S. there. The case is now before the U.S. Supreme Court, where some of the justices in recent years have made statements that their decisions should be influenced by the rulings of the International Court.
- Keeping China as a favored trading partner. No matter how many atrocities the Chinese government commits, trade with China is strong all over North America which enriches corporations in Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. Since they enrich our economies, maintaining trade with them will strengthen the North American Union. Products made in China also make up a huge amount of products that are shipped in the Mexican trucks that President Bush wants to be able to roam freely on our roads.
- Kowtowing to the United Nations. As I mentioned before, the U.S. President wants to promote and strengthen the idea of a one world government. He must therefore take the lead in not only pressuring our courts into following the unappealable decisions of the International Court of Justice but must try to get us to conform our laws to match the UN’s laws such as the Law of the Sea Treaty, giving the incompetent and corrupt organization control over our waterways. While I’m on the subject of water, many municipalities in our nation for the past few years have grappled with allowing foreign corporations to control the distribution of their water to their citizens because they’ve been strapped for cash. Giving control of our water to foreigners like the Germans is always bad policy in my opinion. Placing ourselves in that position just opens us up to extortion if they should disagree with our policies.
- The “All religions lead to God” doctrine. In order to appease Muslims and not offend anyone of any religion, the fact that the U.S. was founded on Judeo-Christian principles will continue to be muddled. The majority of the founding fathers, as fallible as they were, recognized the importance of Biblical principles in the preservation of this nation even if they may have been nominal Christians. It is because of those principles that we can allow anyone to practice any religion in our country as long as it does not jeopardize lives (e.g. human sacrifices). But to go so far as to make attempts to wipe out any resemblance of Christianity just to appease someone who is offended only serves to weaken the morals and foundational principles of this country.
- Co-existence of Israel beside a Palestinian nation. The goal of this policy may be to bring peace to the Middle East, but the fact remains that the Muslim world hates the very existence of Israel. Even if a Palestinian nation were to arise, there would still be unrest in the Middle East. Although Israel does a lot of wrong things, they are no worse than any other nation and the land where they sit has been theirs since God made a covenant with Abraham centuries ago. If some so-called “peace” agreement is ever finalized, this will be a sure sign that the one who accomplishes this is in fact the Antichrist, who will eventually prove to have an ulterior selfish motive for the agreement. If Condoleezza Rice or President Bush knew the Bible, they wouldn’t be surprised that their talks about forming a Palestinian state are unravelling as mentioned in the press recently.
Evangelicals may be looking for the most conservative candidate possible, but no matter who we vote for, they will still cling to these evil policies. Our battles will continue whether the President is a Democrat or Republican.
