"We have never stopped sin by passing laws; and
in the same way, we are not going to take a great moral ideal
and achieve it merely by law."

Legislators need to stop passing laws in an attempt to stop sin.

    Victimless crime / compelled compliance are sins the government should not be participating in, worse yet, protecting and promoting. The sovereign's sin is his own and does not warrant governmental attention until it violates another.

    That is why the nation will only be as great as the individuals that compose it. Each of us is responsible for the condition and the quality of the republic. If we let Truth, Love, and Courage be our inner guide, the outer manifestation of our system of government will reflect that. When we are ready, that is the kind of government we will have.

    I give it a thumbs down because "Ike" - known to his West Point classmates as "the terrible Swedish Jew" - had no place to stand - no standing - to pronounce it. Like the "Big 3" he worked for, his name (really Eisenhauer) will one day live in infamy for his war crimes during, and death camps AFTER Germany had surrendered. Look it up.

    As the Apocalypse (uncovering, revealing, dis-covering) rolls on, the covering of lies melts in the Light of God pouring into the Earth now, and the underlying truth is automatically revealed. The heroes are turning out to have been the most vile and despicable villains, and those painted as monsters, like Adolf Hitler, are proving to be the real heroes.

    Bigbear, you are truly crazy . David L., your response makes no sense to the truth in this quote.

    Ike, Churchill, Roosevelt, Stalin were the true war criminals.

    " Each of us is responsible " ( Truth, love and Courage ) Great moral ideal. Archer you have struck a tri-cord, and the nodal lines appear upon your heart. In harmony. There are contrivances to render vibration visible to the eye. Franklin and our founding fathers had those they admired, such as Ernst Chladni . ( Chladni's Law )

    BigBear strikes a discord. Not only in sound but also in colour . As also David. ( Legal positivism ) strikes a discord Contrary to Natural Law." If all you use to see is your eyes, then you are blind."

    Jimi makes perfect sense to me, sorry David L.

    A great spiritual awakening is dawning on the world which will reveal natural law and truth to all mankind. That spiritual awakening will also show that many worshiped today as great heroes of WWII were in fact nothing more than pawns of the dark side. With regard to talk of morality and law, Eisenhower has little or no standing as far as I'm concerned.

    I give Archer's post 5 stars - agree with it 100%...

    BUT

    We're ostensibly here to comment on "Ike's" quote.

    I stand by what I wrote and as further proof that Eisenhauer had ZERO moral standing, as the "Supreme Allied Commander" he is guilty of the firebombing - TRUE holocaust - of Dresden, as well as myriad other war crimes, culminating in his TRUE death camps.

    Eisenhauer, Churchill, Rosenveld (FDR) and Djugashwili ("Stalin") - all Zio Criminals whose names, both real and made up for disguise, already live in infamy. Probably all in Churchill's bathtub in hell smoking cigars with the devil.

    As a soldier you see both Light and Dark. Pull the trigger from both sides ! It is not to point out one agent from another, but to understand Natural law and Gods love of his garden. We all move plants around in the garden ! Watch out for the Assyrian Jew. !

    @ Ron w13, Or
    WTF?

    What is an "Assyrian Jew?"
     -- Jimi Bigbear, Libertyville, IA

    Jimi Bigbear, I love your comment Brother. If you are native, even better. Within every tribe are the opposition. In the Court there are those that have no change, ever present. Eternal. They are on the court always, ever listening , speaking little. When they do, stones are cast, pay attention to the source language. Happens not very often. The Assyrian is ever present. " The captive exile hasteneth that he may be loosed, and that he should not die in the Pit, nor that his bread should fail ". He is on the field at present . As others that are born for the fight.
