Go back with me if you would to the earliest form of government, ‘a Theocracy.’ (God as head of the kingdom). The Hebrew people were governed by their God and ‘Ten Commandments.’ The surrounding governments, however, although various forms of theocracies, were governed by kings. The Babylonian and the Egyptian kings worshipped ‘other god’s,’ and their kingdoms were governed by laws like the ‘Code of Hammurabi’ which was one of the earliest law codes dating back to around 1754 BC. Advance forward to 1035 BC Israel, when at that time the oldest remaining ‘Theocracy’ governed by Judges succumbed to the influences of the surrounding cultures and became a kingdom. In a shocking turn of events, the Hebrews up to that time, a theocracy, elected a king! The Bible says in 1 Samuel 8: 4 -5: “So all the elders of Israel gathered and came to Samuel at Ramah. They said to him, “You are old, and your sons do not walk in your ways; now appoint a king to lead us, such as all the other nations have.”
Speed forward to America on November 8th, 2016. In a shocking turn of events, the population, whether for or against the new president elect, elected a business man as President of the United States! Just think, for the first time since George Washington, someone, not an attorney or professional politician, will become the President of the United States. In a shocking turn of events, similar to the events of Israel’s over 3000 years ago, a major change has taken place. What does it all mean?
Because of the self - directed education I’ve received from the ‘LIFE’ company subscriptions, the application of new information solved a multitude of financial challenges in my life. New thoughts led to new actions and new actions led to new habits. New habits led to new results. Sharing this information with others led to helping them achieve positive results in their lives as well. The key word is, “application.” This new practical information was different than what I heard at the University and what I was hearing from the media. There has been a tsunami of misinformation spreading through our nation. One of the biggest sources of misinformation (propaganda) has come from the not so free press. See my previous blog, ‘THE DEATH OF FREEDOM: THE FREE PRESS’. For example, for years now the press and academia repeat the word, “democracy” in sound bites. This dripping in our minds apparently has the majority of the people believing we live in a democracy, where a majority rules. I’ll make a statement in a shocking turn of events, “We aren’t a democracy. We are a Republic.” That means, the majority does not rule, the electoral college rules. Why does that matter?
It matters because it reveals the intelligence of the founders who wrote the Constitution of the United States. The founders were wise. They studied history and learned about all forms of government. What they found is that all ‘democracies’ self - destructed. They self - imploded. The founders knew that a populous can be manipulated by a massive propaganda machine that choose to dumb down its people for gain. Components could include but not necessarily be limited to the financial institutions, educational institutions, and media. Best - selling author and top leadership expert, Orrin Woodward calls this manipulation, ‘The Financial Matrix.’ It would pit people against others in their community when they became segregated into classes, and stereo types, like white male, evangelist, woman’s lib, feminist, and LGBT. Once, we started as a united community of free people. Today, factions abound and not by mistake. Those factions can be manipulated to turn against one another. This is one of the Communists planks as Carl Marx described in the Communist Manifesto. Once segregated, people could be motivated to vote for rewards for their own segregated classes. They could learn how to profit from laws, entitlements, and taxes. In order to preserve the freest Republic ever known in history, the founders of our country created three branches of government and an electoral college. They knew that people needed protection from the manipulators that they knew would be attempting to influence power. See my new book, ‘The Torch of Freedom’ for a study about the power struggle that is always at play attempting to arrest people’s freedom. In essence, our society is not supposed to be ruled by popular vote. Intelligence and study says, it’s not the candidates that win or lose. In a ‘Republic,’ it’s the people who win because we are protected from ourselves.
The original framers of our Constitution included Farmers, Lawyers, University Professors, Businessmen, and Clergy. In a shocking turn of events, those governing us today are primarily attorneys who have in turn become professional politicians. Nothing wrong with having a good attorney, but what happens when attorneys become politicians? What does an attorney specialize in? Laws, regulations, and titles (where the word entitlement is derived). After two hundred years of being governed by attorneys who are experts in law, regulations, and entitlements, what would you expect the result to be?
1. Total US debt soars to nearly $60 trn, foreshadows new recession ...https://www.rt.com/usa/166352-us-total-debt-sixty-trillion/ Jun 16, 2014 - Total debt (the combination of government, business, mortgage, and consumer debt) was $2.2 trillion 40 years ago.

Any board of directors looking at those results objectively as a business and not with a political lens would recognize that experts at law, are not the most skilled at running a business. With the impending financial crisis caused from either mismanagement of the government or corruption leading to financial gain, you would immediately fire the boss and hire an experienced and successful entrepreneur at the highest level to dig out of the mess. Think again about the shocking turn of events that recently took place in our country’s election. The electorate spoke. In defiance against the media bias and the political elite who have maintained the status quo, the ‘Republic’ spoke. Their answer wasn’t what anyone expected. In a shocking turn of events the electorate voted for a business man. That’s right! Not an attorney. In a shocking turn of events the people spoke up and said, “The last thing we need now is another attorney.” But who would have expected this result? In a shocking turn of events, the people said that in order to get us out of the trillions of dollars of debt that will bankrupt our country and that our grandchildren stand to inherit, they need someone who was not plugged into ‘The Financial Matrix.’ Regardless of which candidate you favored, think about how the American population responded. In a shocking turn of events the people said that they need an entrepreneur. Someone who doesn’t think like an attorney, a professional politician, or a Washington insider. In a shocking turn of events the people realized they needed someone not a politician. When the patient is in critical condition, the patient might require a major surgery to live. New ideas outside the box that will be capable of getting us out of this mess are needed. Time will tell if the electorate made the right decision. In the meantime, use this remedy as many people did over thousands of years, for those who are so stressed out about this shocking turn of events. In the words of Jesus, “You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above.” God Bless, George Guzzardo
