Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Because organized religion still exists today. It’s called government. It’s called State Legislature of Louisiana. It is called Congress. It’s called the Senate. Most people treat the Supreme Court as if it is a deity, as if it has god-like powers. Not only does it have them, it ought to discharge them, ought to use them. That is unbelievably wicked and scary, investing that kind of authority in nine unelected men and women. We’ve been hoisted by our own petard. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mike: Jerry is in Philadelphia. Hello, Jerry, you’re next on The Mike Church Show on Sirius XM Patriot Channel. How you doing?
Caller Jerry: I’m doing all right, Mike. Unfortunately I’m not sleeping as well as you are. I haven’t slept well in years. As I told your call screener, I’ve been operating a couple of different small businesses for about 28 years. I’ve watched a lunatic government now actually spend in excess of $3 trillion. The amount of money is inconceivable, yet the electorate votes Santa Claus back in because everybody wants free stuff. It’s, again, unbelievable that people in this day and age believe you can get something for nothing. They excoriate the people in this country that get up every day and go to work. I’m sorry, Mike, I love Rand Paul and I love what these guys are doing, but to right this ship in the amount of time, I just don’t see it happening. The two-party system, how can we ever get back to a sane form of [r]epublican government? I am in the process of winding down my business. I sold my one house. I have a little house left. I am going to spend the summer trying to figure out what my next move is. I am petrified for my three adult children. At 60 years old, I’ve got to get out of here. This country has had it.
Mike: Jerry, as I said in my opening monologue and remarks, as I reflected on my 72 hours spent at the city park fairgrounds this weekend at the Hogs for the Cause barbecue contest and festival, none of the teams that went there went to compete for cash. They all went there to compete and actually make donations to people they don’t know because they believed in the concept of Christian chivalry. That’s right, chivalry and charity are cut from the same cloth. Don’t give up. There are bright sides out there; they’re not political, though. This is the difference.
If you want to know the answer to your query, if you really want to know what to do, and if you’re genuinely afraid — I believe you to be because I can hear the fear in your voice — then you must also know that what is going on, when you say in your country today, I hope you mean in Pennsylvania. That’s your country. You live in the union of states known as the United States. Your country is Pennsylvania. Till such time as a war has been declared and the union of states is called into the service of repelling that invasion and enemy and thus you have a federal force, your country is Pennsylvania. You’re never going to get any of these things back until we can start with that. That’s the first thing. The trend of uber-nationalism that we have today, people jumping up and down and shouting “USA! USA!” — it’s not just Americans that do it; they do it all over the world. Nationalism is what starts wars. It’s what has some people saying, [mocking] “We’re never gonna get along with those people. We’re better than they are. We ought to bomb them into the stone ages.”
Without decentralizing the power, you can’t do any of these things, and you can’t decentralize the power until the people get their heads screwed on straight. You can’t even educate the people because they will reject education when you present it to them because they have been conditioned over a lifetime to believe mythology. They believe, as the caller said, there is something for nothing. They believe that government has money. They believe the general government, the national leviathan is supposed to do all these things and it ought to do all these things. They do not believe that they are supposed to discharge these duties. They do not believe that it is their responsibility to tend to the families in their environs, in their community that most need help. They do not believe in the concept of republicanism, and it’s mainly because republicanism, at the end of the day, is a near impossibility without spiritualism. I’m not going to sit here and say you have to become, as am I, a practicing devout Catholic. I’m not going to say that. Spiritualism and the concept of spiritualism and Christianity and Judeo-Christianity do have a mighty influence on this. There’s a story in today’s rundown, Andrew sent it to me, about how many Americans are turning away from organized religions in larger and larger numbers, right?
AG: That is correct.
Mike: Why is that? Because organized religion still exists today. It’s called government. It’s called State Legislature of Louisiana. It is called Congress. It’s called the Senate. Most people treat the Supreme Court as if it is a deity, as if it has god-like powers. Not only does it have them, it ought to discharge them, ought to use them. That is unbelievably wicked and scary, investing that kind of authority in nine unelected men and women. We’ve been hoisted by our own petard. There’s a lot of misinformation and mis-education going on. Folks, I know that many of you don’t agree with this. Like most things that you despise me for, I think the information age and the internet is actually making people more dumb. There is so much out there that is just absolute tripe.
We may as well have Zeus and Hera. We may as well have Mars, the god of war, the god of love, Aphrodite. We might as well have the god of wine Bacchus. We may as well have all these deities at the head of whatever legislative or bureaucratic agency they claim dominion over. We treat them as if they’re God. Remember, we created this government. Our forefathers created it. They said when they created it: If it ever gets out of control, you can abolish it. It is your right to alter or abolish it. As James Antle III just repeated, the only way out of the mess is to abolish it, but you have to have people willing to abolish, not make friends with it, not make deals with it. No, that does not mean that you become politicized, it just means we have to change our cultural outlooks. Some people say that takes generations. We don’t have generations. That’s not going to take generations. That can happen almost overnight. Life-changing events, ever heard of them?
