How many shots did it take for us to lose the Republic? America's money has been under attack from the very beginning. The death blows came in 1913 with the Federal Reserves, and the I.R.S. We allowed a group to become the "head" that replaced Christ Jesus. This large task was carried out through deception.
America should take God [YHVH] and His Word seriously. We read Deuteronomy 28 and stop after the blessing of obedience, and skip over the curses of disobedience. We read in 1Sam.8 the leaders requesting their own king [dictator], but overlook the consequences of "rejecting the Lord".
A Constitutional Republic should reflect God's Kingdom. It should bless the righteous - and punish the wicked. It operates under Supreme delegated power [Rom.13:1]. To this Administration, we are to submit [1Peter 2:13]. Whenever there is doubt, always obey God first [Acts 5:29].
The U.S.Constitution restrains the government. One can hold a U.S. Constitution with two fingers. It is to provide: Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, common Defence, promote the General Welfare, and secure the Blessing of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity. All Americans should take five minutes and look up the word Capitalism. Then look up the word Fascism.
The Antichrist System is upon us. Mark 13:17, is the same as Rev. 13:16 = impregnated with Satan's doctrine, and doing His work. How many shots did it take to lose the Republic? 0. In spite of all of the misguided ones calling for a Revolution part 2, it will require 0 shots to reclaim the Republic. Will it happen? Yes - I believe that this is the "deadly wound" spoken of in Rev.13 that the One World Political System suffers; Truth wins, always.
