I am an American Christian. I read the Bible and pray daily, go to church on Sunday and lead home Bible studies during the week. It’s pretty obvious that this great country’s Christianity has become watered down. It’s why I’m writing this.
Christians do have some political responsibility – one of which is to register and vote. When one looks at the party platforms, it’s pretty obvious which party aligns itself with Christian principles. One must not confuse those who register “Independent” with those who register “Independent American”. The “Independent” is a confused quasi-liberal who cannot make up his mind and is therefore double-minded. The “Independent American” has made a Christian-based uncompromised decision to stand against all liberalism in any political party.
Anyone who claims to be a Christian ought to read the party platforms. The probability that the IAP will never elect a president is high. But if you are a Christian, does it not seem out of place that your name would be found in the ”Lamb’s Book of Life” as well as on the democrat or republican party voter’s registration forms? This is just a thought! You can still vote for the individual wherever your name is recorded! And maybe it makes sense to play the primary party swap game.
The Independent American Party Platform
(update): Since this article was written, the Independent American Party Platform has been modernized. Some lawyers and politicians must have got involved. The new platform, when compared to the one herein is quite a letdown from this Christian patriot pastor’s point of view. We of the IAP are not libertarians. However, I will maintain my voter registration in this party. But – I will also stick with the platform represented in this article. So why don’t you lawyers and politicians go back to whatever hole you dug yourselves out of ?
We, Independent Americans of the United States, out of great love for God, our families, our country and Constitution, do proclaim: (Author’s inserted talking points)
Departure from God has jeopardized US(A) !
[Christian Heritage] We believe that Jesus Christ is the God of this land; that we are fundamentally a Christian nation; and that only by faith in and obedience to God shall we be preserved as a great nation.
The government has usurped family Responsibility !
[Family] We believe that families are the fundamental building blocks of a moral society; that traditional family values are the strength of our nation; and that Christian principles are the key to strong homes in America.
Battle-bloodied patriots founded America !
[Citizenship] We believe that patriotism, civic duty and good character are essential to personal liberty and responsibility in America.
God, not government, endows basic Rights !
[Unalienable Rights] We believe that God has endowed men with certain unalienable rights, such as life, liberty and property; that these rights are guaranteed by the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution; and that it is the function of government to protect these rights.
God can no longer defend our Public School System !
[Education] We believe that Christian principles originally were the foundation of our educational system; and that they should again be made the center of American education.
Big government has stifled Free-Enterprise !
[Economy] We believe that “free enterprise” is the best economic system for America; that taxation should be limited to those methods provided for in the original Constitution; and that our nation must return to a debt-free monetary system in accordance with the Constitution.
Good lifestyles have good Consequences !
[Society] We believe that government has no Constitutional authority to convert to socialism; that state and local governments have the right and moral obligation to discourage drug and alcohol use and gambling in their jurisdictions; and that the safety of law-abiding citizens must take precedence over the rights of criminals.
Some alternative energies will Never Work !
[Natural Resources] We believe protection of the environment should be a state responsibility; that there must be a dynamic balance between energy development and conservation; and that there are safe and inexpensive alternative energy sources that should be developed.
Church and State are Inseparable !
[U.S. Constitution] We believe that the Constitution for the United States was prepared and adopted by men under inspiration from Almighty God; that it is a solemn compact created by the people of the states of this nation; and that it was made only for a moral and religious people.
A bloated federal government is killing US(A) !
[Government]We believe that the sole function of government is to protect life, liberty and property; that the federal government is an agent of the states and the people; and that each state is sovereign in performing those functions reserved to it by the U.S. Constitution.
War is a no-holds-barred Last Resort !
[Defense]We believe that a strong defense establishment is essential to the preservation of our nation; that America must not commit its military to any international organization; and that no foreign military bases should be allowed on American soil.
America is for Americans who love America !
[U.S. Sovereignty]We believe that a sovereign America is necessary for us to maintain our freedom and way of life; that we must withdraw from all international agreements that diminish our sovereignty; and that we must resist all efforts to draw us into a global government.
