"Sir, there are two passions which have a powerful influence in the affairs of men. These are ambition and avarice—the love of power and the love of money. Separately, each of these has great force in prompting men to action; but, when united in view of the same object, they have, in many minds, the most violent effects. Place before the eyes of such men a post of honor, that shall, at the same time, be a place of profit, and they will move heaven and earth to obtain it. "
Thomas Paign wrote, "...these are times that try men's souls..." Apparently, our turn has come. Fortunately, we have, so to speak, "a tough act to follow". How fortunate, indeed, for us that we have such a tough act to follow. These men were the same as any of us today, human and flawed. What is unique is that separately each of these men, at some defining moment, had a one on one moment with themselves. In a time of adversity, there comes a time when you must re-visit with yourself and determine the metal you are really made of and what you are. Each of his own, as we at this moment, found themselves, so to speak, standing at the plate with bat in hand. Each, as we individually, found that everything they have done and been had lead up to this moment in time. And, you see yourself, again, for the first time, that you know yourself, who you are, who you have become, and know you can be no less--So, there you are standing at the plate, ready.
Maybe it was just the times, or old Ben just hadn't realized there is no need for money or power except to control others, which is the precursor to the most devious passion, blood lust ~
For without the love of Masters in you, you can do nothing. Jn. 15:5 Paraphrase
For then they that are in the flesh cannot please God Rom 8:8
This is the REASON the ORIGINAL 13th Amendment needs to be REINSTATED... I say reinstated for a reason. Do you know why????
None of my Representatives will touch this. They won't answer me or they give a STUPID answer that isn't worth the air it took them to speak it. Do you know why????
They REFUSE to show me the act of Congress that LEGALLY removed it after it sat on the books for over 50 years..... Do you know why????
If this amendment were still on the books this thread would not need to be written. Talking about this is NOT getting the job done. Where is the action? That is what the government BANKS on.
"Where's the action" Same question I've been asking. What's up with the NLA? Why isn't Darash and your local NLA helping you with your fight, Rosanna?
If you go out on NLA you will see what is happening with NATIONAL. They filed a federal suit to the United States district Art 3 court. I guess you don't visit that site.
My local people have helped what they can. Two people went with me to oral arguments at the 3rd district appeals over my Mom's civil wrongful death suit. One from the southern part of Ohio and one from Mi. A couple others have gone with me to the recent kangaroo hearing two weeks ago where the thieving lawyer admitted he knows he has been stealing from my Dad for 7 years. Those people traveled too.
The FBI has told my State Reps aid that I am NOT barred from my Dad which is to bizarre seeing how we have had the police threaten us for trying ot see him and that bitch judge convicted me with NO victim and NO legal complaints of trespassing and trying to put a warrant on me. A few of those people are going with me to where Dad is incase this is a setup.
I have been lucky for those that have been there.If we had more people driving from like Montana and across the country, like they did to free the cows, maybe I would already have my Dad back.
The point of that post was the 13th amendment and putting it back in the books when it was ILLEGALLY removed. So why don't you work on that and get the thieves out of the country or office? That is good for all of us.
People who want to see those attempting to remove evil from office fail, are on the side of the illuminati criminals. I thought you were outraged about government corruption. I stand corrected.
