America’s founding generation took up arms to defeat tyranny so that you and I would not have to. At great personal sacrifice, they defeated the mighty British war machine and instituted a government wherein tyrannous leaders could be ousted peacefully--at the voting booth.
This is what the historian, Benjamin Hart, was referring to when he said, “The genius of the American system is that it has institutionalized revolution without bloodshed.” Indeed, every four years the American people have the option of peacefully overthrowing any government they deem tyrannous and unacceptable.
The next opportunity for a revolutionary change in the American government will come on November 8. If you are concerned about the direction in which the nation is headed, you can do something about it. Let your voice be heard. Make plans to vote November 8 and encourage every family member, friend, and neighbor to also vote.
Remember the words of Thomas Jefferson, who said, “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” In other words, where the light does not shine, darkness prevails. When “we the people” are silent, evil gains the upper hand.
I also encourage you to begin now to pray, along with thousands of others, for another Great Awakening to roll like a giant tsunami wave across our land. Sincere, fervent prayers, accompanied by corresponding actions on November 8, will result in a dramatic turnaround for this nation.
Yes, I encourage you to join the “populist uprising” that is taking place by letting your light shine into every dark corner of our land, remembering Isaiah 60:1-3 where God promised,
Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the LORD shall arise over you and His glory will be seen upon you. Gentiles will come to your light and kings to the brightness of your rising.
