Today, President Trump posted on social media: “…some in the Fake News Media are saying that it is the Governors’ decision to open up the states, not that of the President of the United States & the Federal Government. Let it be fully understood that this is incorrect. It is the decision of the President, and for many good reasons…”
To clarify, nowhere in the Constitution is the President given the authority to regulate commerce, let alone intrastate commerce. An American President is not an autocrat. To put a finer point on it, the media he is criticizing are also incorrect because Governors are not the autocrats of their states either.
I pray you and yours are trusting in the Lord through this season of uncertainty. Wednesday the National Executive Committee decided that the on-site 2020 National Convention will be rescheduled and restructured as an audio conference meeting. Combined with Georgia's currently declared public health emergency, the Constitution Party of Georgia has also decided to postpone the 2020 State Convention until sometime in April and is considering following the National Convention's format.
For details on the National Convention please go to constitutionparty.com. Once the CP-GA State Executive Committee meets to decide the course of action then we will notify supporters and candidates of the meeting and update gaconstitutionparty.org.
We ask our supporters and friends in Georgia and around the nation to please pray for their state party leaders as they labor to advance the party through this very challenging season.
In my tenure as State Chairman I have been often asked, "Where does Christianity belong in our party?" The answer is in the National Platform the delegates from across the nation have continually approved. Since the question is normally asked by those with a sincere concern regarding religious tolerance, I will appeal to the to the platform in dealing with how we draw the line between promoting our Christian beliefs and promoting a theocracy.
We at the Constitution Party of Georgia wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!
Jesus of Nazareth was indeed the child foretold centuries before by the prophet Isaiah who said, “Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulders. And His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of Hosts will perform this.”
The child born two millennia ago fulfilled everything that the Law and the Prophets had written regarding the promised Messiah. Jesus was God’s gift to mankind - prophet, priest, and king to redeem all of fallen humanity through the proclamation of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. That Gospel strikes the root of what’s wrong with politics today: the rejection of God’s authority and life-giving Word and replacing it with man’s self-centered, liberty-crushing rule.
May He who is called the Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, and Prince of Peace not only liberate our souls from the bondage of our sins, but also be the source of true liberty to restore our families, communities, and nation.
