Nation of Texas
The whole philosophy of government, as developed by the Hebrews, might be summed as follows:
‘Every man is equal to every other man. Only God is supreme.’
...the Hebrews voluntarily gave up their ...self-government for the ‘security’ of a centralized, national power. The Biblical story, as told in Chapter 8 of the First Book of Samuel, was familiar to practically all Americans as to what they could expect. His reply, as given in verses 11-18 of the King James version, is quoted below:"
"The contributions of the Hebrews to our American way are very great. First and foremost, ...was the concept of the dignity and worth of the human individual. Second, was the foundation of the philosophy...all men are created equal. Third were the Ten Commandments. The laws of Moses form the basis of all our modern laws, They also indirectly influenced American democracy through their contributions to Hebrew democracy. These laws might be said to have been the constitution of the Hebrews. The Hebrew commonwealth was a theocracy, which means, ‘God is our government.’ Fourth was local self-government. The successful government by tribes in the Land of Canaan was, ...comparable to our American ‘sovereign nation composed of sovereign states.’
Warnings from the Hebrews may be summed up as follows:
The totalitarian government of the Philistines with its powerful fighting forces constantly menaced the Hebrews. Pressure mounted. The elders were frightened into believing that their only security lay in the military effectiveness resulting form a centralization of power. They therefore demanded a monarchy. They had not learned that democracies cannot only compete with, but in the long run can triumph over, totalitarian states."
The achievements and failures of the 'chosen' people were taught and studied in Texas schools less than forty years ago. The text above and illustrations are taken directly from a Texas State textbook, written by Dallas school instructors. What has happened to cause the governments to forsake its roots?
It can’t Happen In Texas! Right.J. D. Heyes, Natural News 5/15/2012
If ever there were an example of government adding insult to injury, this is it. What else could you call it when a city government fills in your underground bunker with concrete then bills you $90,000 to do it?
Two years ago, Austin, Texas, resident Joe Del Rio awoke to find city officials demanding he let them in to inspect his home. Before it was all over, the local media reported, a police SWAT team and a host of firefighters had been called in as well.
Del Rio’s crime? City officials had a problem with what they described as a “multi-level bunker-type space” under his home that supposedly held suspicious materials.
Detained and questioned for the next 10 hours, authorities eventually let Del Rio, then 70, go free. But over the course of the next few years, his case took some bizarre twists. For one, the city wound up billing him $90,000 for sending a small army of cement trucks to his home to fill in the bunker, saying such action was necessary and prudent in order to make his home “safe.”
Incensed by the whole affair - especially the enormous bill
the city sent - Del Rio hired a lawyer and is suing the city for what he says
was an unconstitutional, uncompensated seizure.
Texas is not immune to government takeover and the need for control of innocent citizens.
