Libertarian Candidate for U.S. House of Representatives
Missouri's 7th Congressional District
Promoting "Liberty Under God."

Summary of this website.
Audio Introduction

If someone tells you not to vote for Kevin Craig because "he's an anarchist," that person is trying to tell you that Kevin Craig is a person of bad moral character, or that his political policies would lead to crime and chaos. Whoever says such a thing is either a liar, or else a victim of educational malpractice, ignorantly repeating political slander.

The English word "anarchist" comes from two Greek words: "a" (not) + "archist"

Q.1: What is an "archist?"     

An "archist" is someone who believes he has a right to
impose his will on others by force.

The use of "force" includes a threat to do harm or violence, a threat to infringe on the other person's life, health, wealth, liberty, or obstruct the other person's pursuit of happiness.

This may confuse you. You might ask, "If that's an 'archist,' what's the difference between an archist and an anarchist?"

Americans have been trained in government-approved schools to believe that an "anarchist" is:

  • a bomb-throwing
  • assassin
  • who rejects the doctrine of private property,
  • seeks to foment disorder, chaos and riots in order to overthrow the government by force and violence
  • and establish some dreadful political ideal like "the dictatorship of the proletariat," where everyone is his own god and criminals run wild.


This man is an "archist"

I am 100% opposed to such things. I hope you are too.


I Am Not an ARCHIST


I strive to be the 180° exact opposite of the so-called "anarchist" above.
I also strive at all times not to be an archist.
I am a Bible-believing Christian who

 


This Man was executed as an "anarchist"
by the archists of His day.

Smith is an "archist"
if Smith initiates force against Jones
or threatens Jones with violence and harm
in order to compel Jones to think or to do
what Smith thinks Jones ought to think or do.

Smith is also an "archist" if Smith votes for "The Candidate"
on "The Candidate's" promise to initiate force against Jones
in order to compel Jones to think or to do
what Smith thinks Jones ought to think or do.
"The Candidate" is also an "archist."

For Candidates and Politicians, Bureaucrats and Tyrants, the "initiation of force" usually takes the form of

This is what "archists" do.

An "archist" is someone who believes he has a right to
impose his will on others by force.


I Am Not an ARCHIST


Q.2:  Where did you get this word "archist?"

From the Bible.

I try to get everything from the Bible.

In the Gospel of Mark, chapter 10, Jesus discovers His disciples arguing about who is going to be the "greatest" in the Kingdom of God.

They didn't understand that Jesus' Kingdom was quite unlike the kingdoms of the world.

But Jesus called them to Himself and said to them, "You know that those who are considered rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. {43} Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. {44} And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all. {45} "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."

The word translated "rulers" comes from the Greek word from which we derive our word "anarchist." Jesus clearly says His followers are not to be "archists." They are to be "servants."

(If you are a secular libertarian and you don't like my public use of the Bible, consider the impact on your life and on the rest of the world if I could persuade 200 million self-professing "Christians" in America to become non-archists, eschew the use of government force to Christianize America, and to stop giving their money to archists and to use their money in more Christian ways.)

The archist:

  1. initiates force against others
  2. engages in punitive retaliatory vengeance
  3. does not respect others' rights to private property
  4. creates disorder, chaos, instability -- violent overthrow of competing archists;
  5. promotes monarchy, oligarchy, socialism, fascism, "the dictatorship of the proletariat," "crony capitalism," democracy, republicanism, etc.

The Biggest Government Lie of All Time is that "anarchists" are bad, while those who oppose "anarchists" are good.

Logically, those who oppose "anarchists" must be "archists."

The mind-boggling reality is, "archists" are the bad guys, and Jesus commanded His followers not to be archists.

The True Christian is not an "archist."


Famous Archists in History:

           

     

You'll recognize one of those archists above as Adolph Hitler.

Hitler did not kill six million Jews.

Name one Jew whom you can prove Hitler killed.

Six million Jews were killed by
six million Germans
who chose to wear a silly uniform, walk a silly goose-step, and follow the orders of a beyond-silly, pathologically evil man.

These Germans were archists.


I Am Not an ARCHIST



 Are YOU an Archist?

Are you an archist?

  • Do you violate other people's rights just to get a check from the government?

  • Are you willing to obey the orders of an archist who orders you to initiate force against others?

  • Do you think you impress the chicks by wearing a government uniform?

Then you, too, are an archist.

(And if the chicks are impressed, so are they.)

Most Americans today are archists.

They will obey any order if the government will give them a check.

  • Drive an armored tank into the walls of a church in Waco, Texas.

  • Shoot a mother in the head while she's holding her baby in Ruby Ridge, Idaho.

  • Lock a pathetic dope-smoking loser in prison to be sodomized for 15-20 years.

And archist Americans will throw a brick through the window of your business when they don't get their check.


Kristallnacht - Nazi archists terrorize Jews


Greek archists protest "austerity budget."

Both are attempting to impose their will on others by force, threats of violence, intimidation, etc.

The men who signed the Declaration of Independence did not trust archists.

Most Americans today believe that archists are our Saviors.


To review:

If you went to a government-approved school, you were probably trained to believe that an "anarchist" is:

  1. a bomb-throwing
  2. assassin
  3. who denies the doctrine of private property
  4. creates disorder, chaos, and riots in order to overthrow the government by force and violence
  5. and set up the "Dictatorship of the Proletariat" or some other dreadful political scheme where everyone is his own god and criminals run wild.

You've been misled. This is the description of an "archist," not an "anarchist."

The archist believes in imposing his will on others by force.

The word "an-archist" means "NOT an archist."
The Christian anarchist does not seek to have others serve him, but is a servant of others, serving their best interests, not using force or aggression to serve them.


I Am Not an ARCHIST


Q.3:  Why bring up this "archist" stuff in your campaign for Congress? Won't it just hurt your chances of winning?

Frankly, I don't care if I win or lose this election.

(That's easy for me to say: there isn't a chance in the world that I could win.)

I'm more concerned about mass murder. slavery, and theft:
I'm more concerned about the fact that during the 20th century, archists:

  • intentionally killed hundreds of millions of human beings
         10,000 human beings murdered by secular "governments" every single day on average
         (not counting abortions; add 135,000 per day);
  • enslaved billions of human beings
         under various forms of atheistic statism (Communism, Socialism, etc.),
         or what the Declaration of Independence calls "tyranny";
  • $$ trillions in private property destroyed or confiscated and redistributed by archists;

And archists want even more of the same in the 21st century.

Simply convincing ignorant voters to check my name on the ballot will do little to stop the murder, enslavement, and plunder.

I want voters to undergo a profound "paradigm shift" or revolution in their worldview.

I want to "de-program" millions of members of a dangerous cult.

When voters today hear the word "anarchist," they react with horror.

I want people to have the same horror when they consider the prospect of someone being an "archist."

No. An even greater horror.

"Archists" in the real world are literally a MILLION times worse than your worst "anarchist" nightmare. Compare the numbers here.


OK, let's look at this particular election campaign.

  • The prospect of a Libertarian winning an election in this predominantly Republican District is not "realistic."
  • "Planting Seeds" should be our first objective.
  • Ron Paul wanted Americans to reconsider the basic function of government, suggesting that Health, Education, and Welfare (among others) were not proper concerns of Washington D.C. This reconsideration was more educational than electoral.
  • In the 21st century, I want to plant the seed that the very idea of "the government" (archism) has no legitimate place at all in a Christian society.

Background on the Libertarian Candidate

If you are a true "Tea Party" Conservative, you should vote for Kevin Craig, who is the most fiscally conservative and socially conservative candidate in the race.

Kevin Craig is the most fiscally conservative candidate in the race for Missouri's 7th Congressional seat.

Our Incumbent Congressman campaigned as one who was "Fed Up."

Kevin Craig stands for a principle, not an emotion:
"We the People established a Constitution which creates a government of  "enumerated powers." 

Kevin Craig  would like to keep Republican promises to eliminate a trillion dollars' worth of government bureaucracies, and then continue cutting a lot more.

Kevin Craig is a radical and an extremist in defense of Free Market Economics or "capitalism."

If all these agencies were abolished along with all federal taxes and fees, your income would triple. You would then be required to pay for roads (tolls), education, and entrance to "National Parks," but having spent all that, your income would still be doubled.

If I am elected in 2012 for a two-year term in Congress, will I be able to persuade Republicans and a majority of the 434 other Representatives to abolish a single one of these bureaucracies, or even cut a single dime from their budgets?

I doubt it.

If you vote for Kevin Craig, you're saying, "OK, I understand politics is a tug-of-war. Do what you can to persuade 434 other U.S. Representatives to cut as much government spending as you can in the next two years, and we'll come back to the polls in 2014 and see if we want to re-hire you."

If I am elected, I will never say that you voted for me because you are a radical libertarian, or that you are "Not an Archist." I will say "Voters in Southwest Missouri have said they want to move back in the direction of the Constitution and limited government -- Liberty Under God --  reversing the current direction toward fascism, secular socialism, or crony capitalism."

Kevin Craig is the candidate you should vote for if you are:

  • pro-liberty
  • pro-Constitution
  • in favor of reducing taxes
  • in favor of reducing government debt
  • in favor of reducing government redistribution of wealth
  • in favor of eliminating government regulations on raw milk, toilet water, light bulbs, etc., etc., etc.
  • wanting to use your vote to send a powerful message to the two major parties -- especially to the Republican Party, who campaigns on a platform of cutting government spending, and then increases government spending, decade after decade.

Because I am the most fiscally conservative congressional candidate in this race, in Missouri, or even in the United States, you're likely to hear someone accuse me of being an "anarchist," as though that were a very bad thing.

That is the subject of this website. But first, here's a little more on the race for Missouri's 7th Congressional seat.

Kevin Craig is also the most socially conservative candidate in the race.

I would like to see:

ERADICATED.

Is that clear enough?

But . . .

Jim Evans (L)

"Government policy, regulation, and tax-code steer the economy.  Today, the economy favors investor gambling over productive hard work. We have a diverse history of government management of the economy. "

"The economy is fueled by energy." 

"We need a total restructuring of how we pay for health care."

Platform | Jim Evans for Congress

Billy Long (D)

Although he told Republicans he was "Fed Up" with big government, Billy Long:

  • Voted to raise the debt ceiling, to clear the way for $2.4 trillion of additional government spending for Obama's remaking of America.
  • Voted for SOPA and PIPA giving Democrats in the Obama Administration authority to censor the Internet
  • Voted for CISPA allowing Obama's appointees to monitor your internet usage
  • Voted for the use of 30,000 drones over AMERICAN soil to monitor Obama detractors
  • Voted for the NDAA and its provisions allowing Obama to indefinitely detain pro-constitution Americans without trial or counsel.
  • Voted for HR347 banning protests near Obama or his corrupt administration officials
  • Co Sponsored HR617, then admitted he hadn’t read it, just did it as a favor. This bill sets up an emergency broadband frequency tied to the Internet kill switch.
  • Voted to spend $30 million a year of taxpayer money to southern Democrats who work for a special interest called NASCAR
  • Said after the 2010 election, “There’s a lot of things good about Obamacare.” If Obamacare is "repealed," would seek to "replace" it.

Kevin Craig (R)

Campaign theme: "Liberty Under God."

The most fiscally conservative candidate in the race

The most socially conservative candidate in the race.

Fiscal: Only candidate in the race who would work without reservation to fulfill the promises Republicans made when Roy Blunt was first elected to Congress back in 1996:
"As a first step in reforming government, we support elimination of the Departments of Commerce, Housing and Urban Development, Education, and Energy, and the elimination, defunding or privatization of agencies which are obsolete, redundant, of limited value, or too regional in focus. Examples of agencies we seek to defund or to privatize are the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and the Legal Services Corporation."
Republican Party National Platform, 1996
 
Abolish the Fed and "Fiat Money"

Social: Supports Ron Paul's "Sanctity of Life" bill. The Act declares that: (1) human life shall be deemed to exist from conception, without regard to race, sex, age, health, defect, or condition of dependency; and (2) the term "person" shall include all such human life.
Opposes prostitution, homosexuality, drug abuse, secular evolutionism in public schools, etc.

Small Government Pledge: Kevin Craig supports reducing the size, scope and power of government at all levels and on all issues, and opposes increasing the size, scope or power of government at any level or for any purpose.

“I will vote small government. Every issue. Every time. No exceptions. No excuses.”

"I will actively and ambitiously initiate and support actions to make government small."

"Specifically, I promise:

  1. I will sponsor, advance, and vote for bills and legislation to shrink the size, power, spending, taxes, debt, and liability of today's Big Government.
  2. I will introduce, support, and vote only for government budgets that are smaller than this year's budget.
  3. I will vote against every government budget that spends the same amount or more than this year's budget.
  4. I will introduce and vote for legislation that repeals or reduces today's Big Government Programs.
  5. I will vote against all new or expanded government programs, all tax increases, and any new debt.
  6. I will vote against any bill that I have not read and thought through.
  7. No communication from me, my representatives, or my staff will contradict or violate the Small Government Pledge for Candidates.
  8. I will endorse and support only candidates who take the Small Government Pledge or whose promises and actions are consistent with the Small Government Pledge. I will never support, directly or indirectly, a Big Government candidate, politician, or proposal.

If all we did was change the letters after the candidates' names, this would be the likely result:

In his "Farewell Address," George Washington warned against excessive allegiance to any political party:

Let me now . . . warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party. . . . The common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrict it. It serves always to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms; kindles the animosity of one part against another . . . . In governments purely elective, it [the spirit of party] is a spirit not to be encouraged.

Even though I'm the candidate that America's Founding Fathers would vote for, and even though I'm the only candidate who can be trusted to keep his oath of office and never vote for any spending or regulation which is outside the enumerated powers in the Constitution, those with the spirit of party will tell voters not to vote for me because I'm an "anarchist."

Those with the the spirit of party will tell you not to vote for me because:

  • You want to vote for "the winner," not the loser.
  • I'll create too much liberty
  • I'm too religious
  • You think some taxes are good.
  • You think some government debt is good.
  • You think I won't leave bureaucrats, politicians and IRS agents with enough power to run our lives.
  • I'm an "anarchist."

I Am Not an ARCHIST


Q.4: What are you promoting in place of "archism?"

A: Liberty Under God.


Liberty Under God
vs.
“Security”
Under Archists


A Christian worldview:
  1. zero-aggression policy
    rely on persuasion, not force, coercion, and threats of violence
    [learn more]
The Archist:
  1. initiates force against others
  1. "turn the other cheek,"
    not vengeance; (1 Corinthians 6:7)
    I'd rather be a martyr than a revolutionary
    [more]
  1. engages in punitive retaliatory vengeance
  1. respects private property,  no theft
    [more]
  1. does not respect others' rights to private property
  1. "Let all things be done decently and in order" (1 Corinthians 14:40)
    Free Market Institutions of Systematic Reconciliation/Restitution
    [more]
  1. creates disorder, chaos, instability, riots -- violent overthrow of competing archists;
  1. The peaceful "Vine & Fig Tree" society
    "The Laws of Nature and of Nature's God"
    [more]
  1. promotes the religion of Secular Humanism: "every man his own god."
    monarchy, oligarchy, socialism, fascism, "the dictatorship of the proletariat," "crony capitalism," democracy, republicanism, etc.
    "The State is god walking on the earth" --
    Georg W.F. Hegel

In a nutshell:

Liberty Under God

Liberty Under God is the philosophy that made America
the most prosperous and most admired nation in history.
America is now bankrupt and despised even by former admirers
because we have abandoned Liberty Under God
in favor of "Security Under Man"

By "LibertyI mean
Freedom from Archists  (burglars, "the Red Coats," etc.)
By "Under God" I do not mean
the god of Osama bin Ladin.
  • I mean the God of Samuel Adams, John Hancock, and America's Founding Fathers:
    • James Madison, the "Father of the Constitution," would say that Osama bin Ladin's religion is a "false religion." (Happily, not all Muslims share Osama's religion.)
    • I mean the True Religion.
  • I mean Jesus Christ

Q.5: "Wait a minute . . . you're a political candidate. Aren't you illegally mixing politics and religion?"

Kevin Craig opposes the modern myth of "separation of church and state." The real meaning of the modern phrase is "the separation of God and State." It no longer refers to "churches," or as Madison often called them, "ecclesiastical bodies." Any government that will not acknowledge itself to be under God is a government that believes it is God.

False Religions

The modern idea of "Separation of Church and State" is an evil lie. While the modern Supreme Court declares that America is a "secular" nation, for the first 100 years after the Constitution was ratified, the Supreme Court frequently acknowledged that America was a Christian nation. And the more consistently America was Christian, the less archist America was.

On May 2, 1778, George Washington ordered the troops:

The commander-in-chief directs that divine service be performed every Sunday at eleven o'clock in those brigades [in] which there are chaplains; those which have none [are] to attend the places of worship nearest to them. It is expected that officers of all ranks will by their attendance set an example to their men. While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian. The signal instances of providential goodness which we have experienced, and which have now almost crowned our labors with complete success, demand from us in a peculiar manner the warmest returns of gratitude and piety to the Supreme Author of all good.
— George Washington, General Orders, May 2, 1778 The Writings of George Washington, JC Fitzpatrick, ed., Wash. DC: US Gov't Printing Office, 1932, Vol. XI:342-343.

The Delaware Indian Chiefs came to Washington inquiring how they could leave their world of superstition and poverty, and become more like the Americans. On May 12, 1779, George Washington coached them:

You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ. These will make you a greater and happier people than you are. Congress will do every thing they can to assist you in this wise intention.
The Writings of George Washington, JC Fitzpatrick, ed., Wash. DC: US Gov't Printing Office, 1932, Vol 15, p.55.

George Washington to New Hampshire Founding Father Meshech Weare, June 8, 1783:

I now make it my earnest prayer, that God would have you, and the State over which you preside, in his holy protection, that he would incline the hearts of the Citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to Government, to entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another, for their fellow Citizens of the United States at large, and particularly for their brethren who have served in the Field, and finally, that he would most graciously be pleased to dispose us all, to do Justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that Charity, humility and pacific temper of mind, which were the Characteristicks of the Divine Author of our blessed Religion, and without an humble imitation of whose example in these things, we can never hope to be a happy Nation.
 a Circular Letter of Farewell to the Continental Army, containing "my final blessing to that Country, in whose service I have spent the prime of my life."
Inscribed on a bronze tablet adjoining the Washington pew in St. Paul's chapel in New York City.

Can we know for sure who is the Divine Author of our blessed Religion? Could it have been Muhammed? On July 9, 1812, President James Madison proclaimed a day of prayer,

to be set apart for the devout purposes of rendering the Sovereign of the Universe and the Benefactor of Mankind the public homage due to His holy attributes; of acknowledging the transgressions which might justly provoke the manifestations of His divine displeasure; of seeking His merciful forgiveness and His assistance in the great duties of repentance and amendment, that He would inspire all nations with a love of justice and of concord and with a reverence for the unerring precept of our holy religion to do to others as they would require that others should do to them.

"Our religion" is Christianity.

If elected I will follow James Madison's advice to vote against any bill which does not promote Christianity, the "true religion." In one of his most famous speeches, Madison, the "father of the Constitution," gave his reasons for opposing proposed legislation:

Because, the policy of the bill is adverse to the diffusion of the light of Christianity. The first wish of those who enjoy this precious gift, ought to be that it may be imparted to the whole race of mankind. Compare the number of those who have as yet received it with the number still remaining under the dominion of false Religions; and how small is the former! Does the policy of the Bill tend to lessen the disproportion? No; it at once discourages those who are strangers to the light of (revelation) from coming into the Region of it; and countenances, by example the nations who continue in darkness, in shutting out those who might convey it to them. Instead of levelling as far as possible, every obstacle to the victorious progress of truth, the Bill with an ignoble and unchristian timidity would circumscribe it, with a wall of defence, against the encroachments of error.

The Disciples were given a "Great Commission":

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth.
Go ye therefore, and make every nation a Christian nation,
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:
Matthew 28:18-20

During the first 100 years after the Constitution was ratified, courts -- including the Supreme Court of the United States -- repeated on numerous occasions that America was a Christian nation, including the notable 1892 case of Church of the Holy Trinity vs. United States. Only someone ignorant of the facts or with a secularist agenda would ever say that America was not originally a Christian nation.

But Washington D.C. does not always act consistently with "the Characteristicks of the Divine Author of our blessed Religion" -- to do unto others as you would have them do unto you, and to not be like "the kings of the Gentiles." America has never been 100% consistent with "the religion of Jesus Christ." Of all the political parties, I think the precepts of the True Religion are best reflected by the Pledge required of all members of the Libertarian Party:

#1

  1. I do not believe in or advocate
    the initiation of force
    as a means of achieving political or social goals.

Beyond the initiation of force, the religion of Jesus Christ prohibits the return of force:

#2

  1. I do not believe in the return of force -- no retaliatory, punitive vengeance
  • Returning Force Against Private Force
  • Returning Force Against Government Force
  • The Myth of "Self-Defense"
    • Christians seek to prevent evil from occurring.
    • There are ways to defend yourself against aggression;
      that is, to prevent an act of aggression from happening.
      • Lock the door
      • Use a shield
      • Run away.
    • But once the act of aggression has taken place
         and you have been aggressed against,
         then initiating a second act of aggression against the aggressor is not "self-defense."
      You're no longer defending yourself,
         you're on the offense;
         you're taking vengeance.
         You're not preventing violence, you're adding to the world's violence.
    • The myth of personal self-defense
    • The myth of "National Defense"
  • Reconciliation through Repentance, Not Vengeance or "punishment"
    • Goal + Process = repentance and reconciliation
    • Competing Free Market Institutions of Systematic, Reconciliation and Restitution
      • Free Market Dispute Resolution Agencies
    • Do not return evil for evil; overcome evil with good (Romans 12; more)
      Do not return force for force, but return incentives to reconcile for force.
    • Archists (in their hearts) will pretend to not be archists (in society).

  1. Private Property - Individualism, not collectivism

  1. Order, not chaos/disorder
  • "Let all things be done decently and in order"
  • throughout society, not just in your home or church
  • Liberty is the mother of order; archism is the father of chaos.
  • America's Founding Fathers would say America today is chaotic and disordered, even though we have archists which are a thousand times more numerous and more powerful than the "swarms" of archists who plagued America in 1776.
  • Archists are the greatest source of disorder and instability in our world today.
  • Education:
    • The Founders insisted that the primary purpose of public education was to teach religion and morality, because order is maintained by religion and morality, not by archism.
    • Archists in Washington D.C. have prohibited local public schools from teaching students that the Declaration of Independence is really true
    • Archists are at war with "our holy religion" and with Christian morality
  • Economics:
    • Archists cause economic recessions/depressions, the "boom-bust" of the "business cycle," and economic disorder; compounded by archist confiscation and redistribution of wealth known as "bailouts." Archists are an obstacle to the economic stability and predictability needed for long-term investment.
  • International Relations:
    • Archists destabilize and overthrow competing archists on a far greater scale than so-called "anarchists."
      • The government of Iran was overthrown in 1953 by U.S. and British Intelligence, which led to the Iranian Revolution, then U.S. support for Saddam Hussein in his war with Iran..
      • The International Islamic Jihad from Afghanistan to Kosovo to the U.S. was created with American dollars beginning before the Carter Administration to destabilize and overthrow the Soviet Union, including the building of Mosques throughout Eurasia and printing of Korans with Wahabbi notes. "America Made Islam"
      • The CIA in Indonesia, 1965-1967
      • CIA destabilizes Guatemalan government Guatemala in 1954, and other governments in Latin America

  1. God's Law, not Man's Law
We have been trained to think of "anarchy" as a situation where every man is his own god. But if Jesus is Lord, then we ought to obey His command not to be "archists." A world without archists is a world of peace, cooperation, harmony, and Free Markets, with everyone dwelling safely under his own "Vine & Fig Tree."

In Summary and Contrast:

The Archist:
  1. initiates force against others
  2. engages in punitive retaliatory vengeance
  3. does not respect others' rights to private property
  4. creates disorder, chaos, instability, riots -- violent overthrow of competing archists;
  5. promotes the religion of Secular Humanism: monarchy, oligarchy, socialism, fascism, "the dictatorship of the proletariat," democracy, republicanism, etc.
The Christian:
  1. relies on persuasion, not violence and compulsion
  2. "turn the other cheek," not vengeance; forgiveness, patience (1 Corinthians 6:7)
    would rather be a martyr than a revolutionary
  3. private property, no theft
  4. "Let all things be done decently and in order" (1 Corinthians 14:40)
    Competing Free Market Institutions of Systematic Reconciliation and Restitution
  5. The "Vine & Fig Tree" society

Q.6: "What a minute . . . Hold on!
If you're not an "archist," then you must be . . . you --  you're -- You're an Anarchist!
 That means you must be:

  1. a bomb-throwing
  2. terrorist
  3. who denies the doctrine of private property
  4. creates disorder, chaos, and riots in order to overthrow the government by force and violence
  5. and set up the "Dictatorship of the Proletariat" or some other dreadful scheme where everyone is his own god and criminals run wild."

NO!

You've got it completely backwards.

Q.6: How can you be "the most socially conservative candidate in the race" if you're a Libertarian and Libertarians want to legalize Homosexuality, Heroin, and Harlotry?

Asking the Federal Government to punish drug users and homosexuals is un-Christian and neither fiscally conservative nor socially conservative. Jesus would not condone locking prostitutes in hellish atheistic prisons with car-jackers and bank robbers. Here's a post from my blog:

"Legalize" the 3 H's!

Why we should "legalize" the three "H's":

  • Homosexuality
  • Heroin
  • Harlotry
An unscripted, off-the-cuff rant against Christian "social conservatives" who won't vote for Ron Paul or other libertarians.

Just because you don't imprison or execute people for the three H's doesn't mean you endorse the three H's.

Reference is made to the following parts of my campaign platform:

Our Ever-Growing
National Debt

The Gross National Debt
Just about every American agrees that
   • Government Debt is too high
   • Taxes need to be reduced
   • Wasteful Government programs need to be cut.
 
The problem is the definition of "wasteful."

If you get a check from the government because there is a government program that benefits you and your group, then you might agree that everyone else's program is "wasteful," but your program is an "important" program that is "vital" to America's "economic growth" or "national security."

Everyone thinks their program is uncuttable. "Off the table."

And they demand that their Congressman get the rest of Congress to vote for their program, to "bring the bacon home to the district."

But the only way your Congressman can get enough votes to pass your program is to "compromise" and vote for the programs requested by a majority of the other 435 Congressmen.

That's about 218 votes. So every dollar you get from Washington costs you (or your children, or your grandchildren) 218 dollars.

(We're simplifying, but you get the idea.)

That's why the total amount of promises made by politicians to buy votes is now over $222 Trillion. These promises cannot be kept.

The only way we're ever going to get wasteful, harmful, unconstitutional government spending cut is for us all to agree that we will no longer ask Congress to initiate force against others to redistribute their money to us.

Even if that means cutting the program that sends us a check.

Archists cause economic collapse.
Don't be an Archist.

Who is the Greatest Threat to
Life, Liberty and Property?

A. "Governments"

B. "Criminals"

 

Who drops the most bombs,
assassinates the most people,
deprives more individuals of liberty
destroys the most private property,
and causes the most chaos and disorder?

"Anarchists" or "Archists?"

Organized "government" claims to protect us from "criminals" who might steal from us or kill us.

  • In 1994, "criminals" committed 7,885 bank robberies, taking $28 million. That same year, "government agencies" seized $2.1 Billion in "asset forfeiture proceedings," often without "probable cause," and often not returned when innocence was proven.
  • The Federal Government confiscates over half of everything you earn. How much do "anarchists" withhold from your paycheck?
  • The "anarchist" Tim McVeigh was blamed for the bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma, but U.S. archists have bombed many more federal buildings in Iraq, with far greater loss of innocent life. Some who are reading this will remember Dresden.

The rubble of an Iraqi neighborhood"Archists" have confiscated hundreds of billions of dollars in private property in recent years, have murdered hundreds of millions, and have deprived billions of human beings -- literally, billions -- of liberty. And much of this has been funded or protected by the productivity of Americans like you. "Your tax dollars at work."

Name one "anarchist" who built a concentration camp, or bombed an entire city "back to the Stone Age." More governments have been overthrown by other governments than by "anarchists."

In the 20th century, organized "governments" intentionally killed an average of 10,000 human beings each and every single day. (That figure does not include abortions, which occur today an average of 135,000 times per day around the world.) Our program will prove to you that "the government" is the greatest force for crime and evil on the planet.

By the time you finish this program,
you will agree that
ARCHISTS are the greatest enemy of
Godly order,
and those of us who are anarchists
must persuade all archists to repent.

          


Education: The Key

As long as the education of the next generation is monopolized by archists, it will be next-to-impossible to create a society free from the murder, enslavement, and theft that characterizes archists.

The "Separation of School and State" is a vital necessity to wrest control of education from archists and return it to parents.

Executive Summary

  • Government-approved schools have trained us to think of chaos and terrorism when we think of an "anarchist." But in truth, it is the "archist" who causes chaos and violence.
  • An "archist" seeks to impose his will on others by force.
  • I am a Christian.
    • Jesus prohibited His followers from being archists.
    • Therefore I am not an archist.
  • America was a Christian nation, but not consistently so.
    • It would be obvious to America's Founders where our inconsistencies have taken us.
    • The more consistently Christian we are, the less "archist" we are.
    • Every single person who signed the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, if they were here today, would take action to repeal the Constitution and abolish the government it created.
  • We should "beat our swords into plowshares" and create a society which is free from archism.
    • George Washington's favorite Bible verses were those which described this ideal society as one where everyone dwells securely under his own "Vine and Fig Tree."
  • Some will describe this much liberty as "anarchy."
  • Others will call a nation "under God" a "Theocracy."
  • Fine. Whatever.
  • If you must, "Liberty Under God" is just another word for "Anarcho-Theocracy."
  • If you're going to call me an "anarchist," you might as well pull out all the stops:
  • The alternative to "Liberty Under God" is "Security" under Socialists
    The alternative to Christian "Anarchism" is
    Secular Archism
    which in the 20th century gave us
    • Millions murdered;
           10,000 human beings murdered by secular "governments" every single day on average
           (not counting abortions; add 135,000 per day);
    • Billions enslaved under various forms of atheistic statism (Communism, Socialism, etc.);
    • $$ Trillions in private property destroyed or confiscated and redistributed by archists;
    • A war-ravaged world.
    • "Human Rights" an empty political slogan.
  • I don't want to imagine a 21st century that is more secular and more archist than the 20th.

I am running for U.S. Congress not so much to gain a political office, but to restore the original "American Dream." George Washington described that dream as living safely under one's own "Vine & Fig Tree."
Another 3-word phrase to describe this vision is Liberty Under God.
 
There are two ways you can support this campaign for Liberty Under God:
• Action: phone, email, Facebook, Twitter, letters to the editor,
• Donation: money
Click here to learn more about the actions that will help change the worldview of voters. Ron Paul is significantly changing political campaigns by utilizing thousands of enthusiastic volunteers to spread viral videos over the internet and make phone calls to voters. He is spending far less per voter than Mitt Romney, and accomplishing much more than running for office.
 
For the last ten years, I have been the Libertarian Party nominee for Congress every two years. In 2010 I received twice as many votes as I did in 2008, even though voter turnout was down 33%. The reason for this is my appearance in public debates and interviews with the media. Probably also some action on "social media" like Facebook.
 
For the past ten years I have not been accepting monetary contributions to my political campaigns.
• I can avoid hiring an attorney to fill out a boatload of paperwork for the Federal Election Commission
• I can give the appearance of not being "bought off" by special interests.
• TV ads and roadside signs are not as effective as face-to-face communication (or iPhone to iPhone, or computer to computer) which don't require money (just time).
 
Still, there may be some people who want to give money to my campaign.
I would like to accommodate them.
And I would like to expand my social media presence.
I am therefore changing my campaign policy. Somewhat.
 
Like Mitt Romney, I am financing this campaign with my own money. Money I earn in my "day job."
Unlike Mitt Romney, I am not a multi-millionaire.
If I were a vacuum cleaner salesman, the way you could help me finance this campaign would be by buying one of my vacuum cleaners. That would give me the money I need to buy gas to drive to candidate forums and town hall meetings to talk with people about Liberty Under God.
I am not a vacuum cleaner salesman.
I am a "life coach."
You can support my campaign for Liberty Under God by hiring me as your personal coach, and becoming

An Extraordinary American
An Extraordinary Christian
An Extraordinary Human Being

www.ExtraordinaryChristianCoaching.com

If you don't want to get coached and become extraordinary, you can make a tax-deductible donation to the educational non-profit tax-exempt corporation I formed to promote "Liberty Under God." The name of that organization is "Vine & Fig Tree." As a non-profit organization "Vine & Fig Tree" does not endorse any political candidates. Not even me. "Vine & Fig Tree" is working to create a peaceful world free from princes and pirates, devoid of Congressmen and criminals. I write their webpages. I've never been paid for this work, because donations have barely covered the cost of keeping the computers running and the webpages hosted online. Should I ever get paid for my work, I will use that money to help promote "Liberty Under God" by getting my tank filled with gas and going to the TV station to debate other candidates for U.S. Congress.

Additionally, my mother was recently hospitalized with a virulent infection that left her with about 25% of her mental and physical abilities. Caring for her is now my full-time job. As the 2012 campaign gains momentum, I will need to hire a nurse to care for her while I drive to campaign events, debates, and media interviews. I will pay for this out of my own pocket, if "Vine & Fig Tree" receives enough income to pay me for working on the more than 3,000 webpages and blog posts I have already created.

Bigger visions require more donations.

Your donation goes a long way

Thank you very much.


Up until 2012, I have never charged any money for help, advice, coaching, etc. For nearly a decade I rented a 12-room house in a bad part of town and allowed homeless drug addicts to get off the streets, find a job, and save up first and last month's rent. No charge for them, no salary for me. Over a thousand people received shelter and coaching. I am working on turning social work into an online business. These websites are under construction:
