The Hand of Providence - God Rules In The Affairs Of Men

"All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of superintending providence in our favor. To that kind providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? Or do we imaginethat we no longer need his assistance? I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth-that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the Ground without his Notice, is it probable that an Empire can rise without his Aid?" Ben Franklin at the Constitutional Convention

It is "Christ in you, [that is], the hope of glory". God certainly rules but has always done so by providing his servants with discretion, courage, and strength. Waiting for the ‘teacher’ to complete our assignments in ‘faith’ is the single Greatest reason his people fail while the wicked succeed. I “will demonstrate my faith…”.(James 2).
Huckabee wins are a testament to a government of/by the people as he continues to win against all 'expert' prediction and disparagement. But the blatant refusal of the media to report at all, or when reporting- spin positive to negative demonstrates a growing propensity to report, coerce, and effect a government that is increasingly not “of " the people.
Dem “Super delegates” are a blatant example of future “rule” over self government. Because “the people can not be trusted”, (DNC 1968), "we must insure this, (the nomination of a candidate the people voted for), NEVER happens again.”
We must therefore highly resolve—“that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth” (AL).

I was a Huckabee supporter, too. Thanks for the quote. I found you when I googled the quote.

Conservatives need to find out what it really means. Bush was not a conservative with his spending and nation building. Anyone who supports that is supporting the New World Order's agenda for World Government and the AntiChrist. True Conservatism is following the Constitution and the founders advice in not getting involved in foreign wars as heroically followed by a 100% constitutional voting record by Ron Paul. He is a true statesment and strict constitutionist, proven by history. Huck and Palin aren't. Newt had his chance and proved that he wasn't. Only Ron Paul and Chuck Baldwin are fighting the heart of the beast and making their goal of World Government difficult.
