    It is interesting that Voltaire got away with saying what he did because he had powerful friends that protected him from government retribution.

    But who is to say our thoughts and beliefs are right? Only time can be the true judge.

    Rick, there is a foundation from which the ancient doctrines of Liberty ( financial ) and Freedom ( to move about ) Come from. The saying " The Bible is the Rock upon which the Republic Rest ". Theses are not idle words or just a turn of phrase. Hidden within the oldest books on the planet, are thirteen points of reference in the Old Testament, dictates if you will, precepts governing the lending and barrowing of money with one of your own nation. Being that nation that sets their children at Liberty and Freedom. Rarely adhered to for very long. Has one not come to notice that the ties between Israel and the United States of America, are joined in a special manner not openly, or ever clearly spoken of. But used is the phrase Christians, and Jews. In a world of, or sea if you will, of monarchy's and socialistic nations, we move towards and are now on a precipice, approaching an apex. Knowledge withheld, creates blindness among the populous, so with the reveling of knowledge, brings the fullness needed to reach the peak or apex if you will. Though our nation, at one time and its sovereigns, were at Liberty and Freedom, it did not take long to place the yoke of bondage, in the form of usury, payroll, and property tax, back upon the children's neck. Slavery returned. The guard through temptation gave over to greed, there in, letting their guard down. Becoming corrupt in its very nature. The foundation is made obscure by half truths spoken by the mouths of Preachers and Politicians . Religion, incased within the English word, are two words, if not reveled, keep blind the people from knowing the Whole Truth, which is rarely reveled. Threskeia, and Threskos, The first is religion as a officious parade, these participate in a outward show of belief not truly wishing to set the children free, let alone at Liberty. The Catholic church has done a good job through their pomp and pageantry of concealing the truth of Liberty and Freedom from the world. And our nation has followed suit, by the many denominations that still clam loyalty to that church. They delight in approaching unto God, but deceive the people, by not adhering to the Commandment to set the children Free and at Liberty. These are false religions. only a show of vanity. On the other hand is, Threskos, The contrast is set forth between that which is ( unreal and deceptive ), and the ( pure religion ) Threskos, which consist in visiting the fatherless and widows in their afflictions and in keeping oneself unspotted from the world. Our founding fathers new very well this knowledge, and by Divine Providence, the Right to Declare Grace and Liberty and Freedom to the children of our nation, they did, in what is termed an experiment. Now we, as a world and a nation are upon the precipice of unveiling this truth. When reached, achieve the apex. We do pray for the fullness of the Gentiles to be come in. In doing so, all Israel shall be saved. Liberty and Freedom at is source of origin. Through the fall of Israel salvation has come to the Gentiles, by way through our Mercy they shall receive Mercy. This is why the world is at odds with America and Israel. Knowing we are the source of these ancient doctrines of Liberty and Freedom, setting the children free from the yoke of bondage and oppression. Time has keep in store and does revel, though must be searched out in the ( night ), for these truths are not clearly seen in the night. This is the night of spiritual darkness. But now the Son does begin to shine. The innocent blood upon the alter of Freedom. Weather one believes in God or not does not change anything. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence , we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor. Washington a man wondered at. No doubt, Divine insight, as others in his ranks. True Prophets are rarely exposed, by the us of the word. But the Cardinal Cross of understanding (13) Is always sure. Israel is blind ( in part ), till the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.
