Brother Bob McCurry has been my friend and counselor for nearly forty years, and what he says here is right on. I know because I proved it myself in 1991, when the bastards* attacked me. (See Miracle in Atlanta.) And while we do not attempt to make this site a religious one, we do not hesitate to promote truth and expose the lies at every opportunity. We live in a wicked nation, controlled by satanic impostors posing as leaders. There is no political escape possible because we fight against . . . oh well, if you have a Bible and really want to know, see Ephesians 6:12. Actually 6:10 thru 18 may be the best political advice you will ever get. And if you don’t have a Bible, it’s time you got one.
*I often use “bastards” in this context not necessarily in the cursing fashion they deserve, but to accentuate, underline and emphasize their illegitimacy.
The Wake-up Herald
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof. Romans 13:11-14

The Fatal Delusion of Political Salvation
By Robert McCurry
A seasoned political analyst, Patrick J. Buchanan says, “Our two-party system is a fraud, a sham, a delusion. On foreign policy, trade, immigration, big government, we have one-party government, one party press; and conservatives are being played for suckers.”
Former Alabama Governor George Wallace said, “There is not a dime’s worth of difference between the Democratic and Republican parties.” He was right.
Helen Keller once said, “We vote. What does that mean? It means that we choose between two bodies of real, though not avowed, autocrats. We choose between Tweedledum and Tweedledee.” She was right.
In his classic work The Law, first published in June 1850, Frederic Bastiat wrote:
When it is time to vote . . . the voter is not to be asked for any guarantee of his wisdom. His will and capacity to choose wisely are taken for granted. Can the people be mistaken? Are we not living in an age of enlightenment? What! Are the people always to be kept on leashes? Have they not won their rights by great effort and sacrifice? Have they not given ample proof of their intelligence and wisdom? Are they not adults? Are they not capable of judging for themselves? Do they not know what is best for them? Is there a class or a man who would be so bold as to set himself above the people and judge and act for them? No, no, the people are and should be free. They desire to manage their own affairs, and they shall do so.
But when the legislator is finally elected — ah! then indeed does the tone of his speech undergo a radical change. The people are returned to passiveness, inertness, and unconsciousness; the legislator enters into omnipotence. Now it is for him to initiate, to direct, to propel, and to organize. Mankind has only to submit; the hour of despotism has struck. We now observe this fatal idea: The people, who, during the election, were so wise, so moral, and so perfect, now have no tendencies whatever; or if they have any, they are tendencies that lead downward into degradation. ~Frederic Bastiat [1801-1850], French economist, statesman, and author
Today’s political delusion
The dominant political delusion today is that politics represent some kind of cure-all political salvation to be implemented in America. America’s political history proves that there is no real difference between either of the major political parties when it comes to concern and implementing the law of God in America. The differences are in their rhetoric, not in their practice.
Alas! As Pilate of old attempted to wash his hands of the innocent blood of Jesus two thousand years ago when “he washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person [Jesus]: see ye to it” (Matt 27:24), political modernity attempts to wash its hands at the ballot box of the blood of millions of babies murdered via abortion since 1973. But political rhetoric, voting, and a new political regime will not absolve this blood guiltiness. God’s message to America is ‘Repent or perish!’
Political salvation is a mirage and quicksand.
The Bill of Rights, the U.S. Constitution, the Congress, the SCOTUS, or a political party cannot save America!
Repentance and obedience to God’s Word, the Bible, is square one, point of beginning to resolve America’s rapid descent into an inevitable demise.
Jesus Christ is Lord! Jesus Christ is God!
The law of the Lord is perfect!
“For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us” (Isa 33:22).
“Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish” (Ps 146:3-4).
“It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes” (Ps 118:8-9).
Political salvation is a fatal delusion!
Salvation is of the Lord!
“Repent or perish!”
Wake-up, Pastors! Wake-up, Christians!
