Republicans No Different In 2015 Than In 1860

By Al Benson Jr.

I continue to be amazed at the number of patriotic and “conservative” sites on the Internet that express shock that the Republican Party seems to be playing along with Comrade Obama’s socialist agenda for this country. They seem to feel that the Republican Party is some great bastion of conservatism that will step up to do battle with the “liberal Democrats” in the name of God and country. Folks, that outdated notion is hogwash. Get over it! It has never been that way and it never will be. The Republican Party is almost as far to the left as today’s Democratic Party is. They are just better at hiding it. This is nothing new.

In our book, Lincoln’s Marxists, Walter D. Kennedy and I noted, on page 48, that: “The very foundation for modern-day liberalism/socialism was laid by the many and various utopian ideologues of the nineteenth century. The fact that these utopian socialists/communists found Abraham Lincoln and the Republican Party to be objects worthy of their zeal and efforts speaks volumes as to why post-Appomattox America has adopted most, if not all of the early American socialist/communist goals. Universal suffrage was a dream of every socialist/communist movement in Europe and America; even Karl Marx spoke in favor of universal suffrage. The same can be said about a progressive income tax, abolition of the rights of inheritance, a system of national education, centralized banking and many other such socialist/communist measures.” And on page 50 we also noted: “The thought of Lincoln as the first American president to have had a communist sympathizer working in a key part of his administration is, and should be, shocking to all Americans. Charles Dana, who visited Marx in 1848, was an associate of Horace Greeley and an early convert to the communistic Fourierist movement. Dana served as assistant secretary of war under Edwin Stanton during the Lincoln administration, thus becoming the first communist, or at least the first communist sympathizer, to serve in a high position within the government of the United States.” And this was in a Republican administration and it was only the beginning. Then there were the socialists, notably Carl Schurz among them, who helped to write the Republican Party Platform in 1860.

There are some who inform us that the Republican Party is the party of small government. Though many of them may be sincere, they are sincerely in error—grave error, and we shouldn’t believe it. Walter Kennedy has also observed, in his recently released book Rekilling Lincoln that: “While often characterized as the homely rail-splitting lawyer from backwoods Illinois, Lincoln was in reality a high-pressure, well-connected corporate lawyer of the largest corporation in America during the early part of the nineteenth century. Although Lincoln is often depicted as a meek and humble friend of the common people and the downtrodden, in actuality Lincoln had a close association with numerous railroad barons. These railroad barons were some of the richest and most powerful men in America at that time.” Both Lincoln and his mentor, Henry Clay, were men who believed in the use of governmental power to protect special industries. And Donnie Kennedy has noted that: “…this system establishes a means whereby well-placed persons could leverage their position in government and finance for personal advantage.” Does that sound any different from today? Republicans and Democrats alike play this game and one hand washes the other.

For those still under the illusion that the Republican Establishment will combat Comrade Obama’s rampant socialism all you have to do to disabuse yourselves of that fantasy is to read an article that appeared on for March 7, 2015, which was written by John Hawkins. Mr. Hawkins presents some very cogent points folks need to begin to consider. He says: “How do you think Republicans would have done in the 2014 elections if they had told the truth about what they intended to do when they took over the Senate? What if they had campaigned on working hand-in-hand with Obama to enact his illegal alien amnesty while supporting his budget priorities, confirming a new Attorney General who thinks everything Obama is doing is fine and promised they would do nothing while he illegally bans ammo, cripples the Internet, and lets the EPA run wild? Republicans are even gearing up to SAVE OBAMACARE if the Supreme Court guts the subsidies…What’s left unsaid is that he’s only able to do it because Republicans in the House and Senate are standing by impotently and allowing him to do whatever he wants.” Hawkins accuses the Republicans of “rank cowardice” in all their confrontations with Obama. Up to now, he’s called it right, but here I have to disagree with him. It’s not cowardice on their part. The problem is that the Republicans are just as much socialists as Obama is and they really have no problem with any of what he is doing. Doesn’t that thought give you the warm fuzzies? We have a Congress, no matter which party is in power, that really has no problem with socialism and they will do whatever it takes to protect Obama’s socialist agenda, all the while loudly complaining about how much they are opposed to it. Socialist Party A and Socialist Party B, your names are really Republican and Democrat, and you both work together to give this country the socialism most of us don’t want—but we’ll get it from you anyway, no matter the party label.

The legislative branch of government has sold out to the executive branch, and all of this will soon be “legitimized” by the judicial branch when they again okay Obamacare as they have done in the past, and again, the supposed system of “checks and balances” we are supposed to have with the Constitution has gone by the boards. It has gone by the boards so much in my lifetime I am beginning to wonder if it really ever existed except on paper.

We have got to begin to rethink the fable that the Republican and Democratic Parties are different than one another, that they have different worldviews and goals. It just ain’t so. They both have a One World socialist viewpoint and that’s where they are both trying to take us. You can’t depend on the Republican Party or its minions to combat Obama’s socialism/Marxism. The Republican Party exists to lead you into it without your being aware of it.

Thanks to our government “education system” the average American citizen is being rendered unfit to govern himself and he is being recreated as nothing more than a mindless zombie who is just one more cog in the government/socialist wheel. And as long as you continue to “educate” your kids in this system all you are doing is helping them to create junior socialist cogs for their One World wheel. We have got to start thinking outside of that box. We don’t have much time left. Maybe we had best start asking the Lord to remove the scales from our eyes so we can begin to see what we need to do.

  1. I agree Al with everything you write, but the real story is what do we the people do about it? If we don’t vote it’s a vote for whichever party wins the elections…we are damned if we do and damned if we don’t!!! There has to be a plan… Form a new conservative party? Declare civil war on the Marxist U.S. Government? Have a constitutional convention? WHAT??? What’s the plan?

    • Al,
      I’m not sure a Constitutional convention would do us any good. I have seen this idea floated quite often. If we did that, who do we think would be running it? It would not be conservatives and patriots, it would be the Washington Establishment.

      As far as forming a new conservative party, that might be an option. At least then you could tell the good guys from the bad guys, but you would have to be constantly alert to make sure you were not co-opted because they would try to do the same thing to you they have tried to do to the Tea Party people, and have been successful to some extent.

      I don’t think our generation, yours and mine, because I think we are about the same age, will live to see any difference. We have got to start by educating our kids and not letting the government schools do it and that will take awhile. While trying to form a new conservative party we have got to work just as hard at forming new Christian schools that will teach kids the truth and then conservative folks have got to start, in larger numbers than they are doing now, to put their kids in those schools–and to keep an eye on what is used for history in them, because they can be co-opted also if we are not careful.

      • The problem with a third party is nobody will vote for it because it can’t win because nobody will vote for it… You’ve got a big PR problem.

        You’d also have to put something in the governing laws of the party to forbid corporate or union donors, maybe only allow donations from individuals or something. Money in politics is a big problem, but it takes a lot of money to get it off the ground! Extremely difficult to get a new party started, but if you did, you could probably tap into a large, angry base.

        Schools! If only conservatives would put their money where their mouths are and support or start good private schools.

        I’ve come to the conclusion that conservatives are extremely lazy and probably won’t do anything until they are materially suffering.

    • Washington will never fix itself and neither will a Convention of States provided they reject Yahweh’s immutable morality as codified in His triune moral law (His commandments, statutes, and judgments) as the supreme law of the land. It will only produce another instance of every man (whether individually, collectively, or by representation) doing that which is right in it’s own eyes, per Judges 21:25.

      Judges 21:25 depicts what today is known as humanism, which is merely a contemporary form of Baalism. See blog article “Could You be a Disciple of Baal and Not Know It?” at

      The United States Constitutional Republic was destined to fall from its inception. This is borne out in the following two passages:

      “And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.” (Matthew 7:26-27)

      “…Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.” (Matthew 12:25)

      The house known as the Constitutional Republic was not built upon the rock of Yahweh’s word, but instead upon Enlightenment and Masonic concepts. It began and continues as a divided house. (2 Corinthians 6:14-17)

      The day is therefore approaching when the Republic’s cup of iniquity will be full3 and Yahweh’s longsuffering is exhausted. At that time, the Republic will be subjected to His judgment. Like all nations before her built on sand, she will cease to exist. The question that remains is whether that generation’s Christians will be prepared to build upon her ruins. If not, another ungodly nation will fill the void until finally a future generation of our posterity are prepared to erect a government and society upon Yahweh’s righteousness as expressed in His triune moral law (His commandments, statutes, and judgments).

      It is therefore incumbent upon this and all intervening generations of Christians to do everything in their power to help prepare for that future generation of Christians to do it right(eous) the next time.

  2. The Democratic and Republican Parties are two wings of the same liberal bird. The former, the left-dipping wing. The latter, the right-dipping wing (barely).

    “In politics, everything revolves around the positioning of right, left, and center. You’re either rightwing, leftwing, or a centrist. Politicians and non-politicians alike employ all three terms as if there’s a consensus on the parameters for those designations. Even if this were true, who gets to determine what’s right, left, and center, and how are those determinations made? Over time, the parameters shift (always further to the left), so how is someone on the right to know he’s now a centrist or a centrist to know he’s now on the left?

    “There are no answers to these questions because there is no standard for these terms. The terms are completely arbitrary, defined at any given time by finite man and his fickle ethics rather than by Yahweh1 and His immutable morals….

    “Isaiah 33:22 and James 4:12 declare that Yahweh is the exclusive legislator. There are no others, period! Anyone who claims the title of legislator (particularly when his “laws”—whether commandments, statutes, or judgments—are inconsonant with Yahweh’s) is a usurper and is perpetuating the sin begun by Adam and Eve. The same is true for any one of us who would modify Yahweh’s triune law….

    “Yahweh is the only lawgiver because as Creator He’s the only one with the authority to determine what is good and evil. His morals as codified in His commandments, statutes, and judgments determine what is right and left. Anything left of His right(eousness) is left, liberal, and ungodly….”

  3. Al Benson Jr.: “The legislative branch of government has sold out to the executive branch, and all of this will soon be “legitimized” by the judicial branch when they again okay Obamacare as they have done in the past, and again, the supposed system of “checks and balances” we are supposed to have with the Constitution has gone by the boards.”

    And: “We have got to start thinking outside of that box. We don’t have much time left. Maybe we had best start asking the Lord to remove the scales from our eyes so we can begin to see what we need to do.”

    That’s right. Think outside the box and ask Him to remove the scales. Get outside the constitution box, look to Him and His Perfect Moral Laws, Statutes and Judgments and those scales will begin to fall.

    The Almighty told us in His Word that His Laws, Statutes and Judgments are perfect and “Thou shalt not add or subtract therefrom.”   Yet, that’s exactly what legislative and presidential offices do, i.e., “add or subtract therefrom.” The making of Law is a power that belongs to Him and Him alone!

    Result ?   Not only have we fallen, Your lost Constitutional Republic died and has become a Communist Republic, which has now morphed into Corporate Fascism.   

    What is very difficult for most to realize is that the corrupt system we live in today was inevitable over time.

    Knowingly or unknowingly, that’s what was established by the Founding Fathers, which most people claim were “Christian”.

    The process was allowed to begin when they decided “We The People” should be god (sovereign) and determine what is to be the supreme law of the land.

    The legislative process provided by the various federal and state constitutions was the vehicle used by the enemy to corrupt over time (via gradual increments) and finally take over.

    This nation wanted to determine what was “good and evil” (remember the garden?), instead of enforcing His Perfect Moral Laws.

    Malim in se (evil in and of itself as defined by The Great I Am, the ONLY lawgiver) vs. malim prohibitum (evil because someone determines, or legislates, it to be evil).

    We now have evil, rotten, Marxist, Edomite Tares and the “Twice The Sons of Hell” they proselytized (Matt. 23: 15) corrupting the nation, with no semblance of “justice”, as well as promoting and supporting all the abominations, e.g., sodomites, infanticide, economic ruin, transhumanism, etc., etc., etc. …………. 

    We also find “The Communist Manifesto” and The Ten Planks contained therein (written and promoted by the Edomite, son of a Rabbi, Karl Marx) is the system our enemy was allowed to slowly ensnare us with. 

    All 10 Planks of The Communist Manifesto in Full Force In AmeriKa:

    And now it’s morphed into Corporate Fascism.

    This is the result of this nation’s being deceived by the enemy to think we know better than The Almighty and should usurp His Law making power, which is to be EXCLUSIVE TO HIM.

    The sooner this reality is recognized and repentance for usurping the power of lawmaking from Whom it rightfully belongs, the sooner we can get to solutions and things will turn around for the better.

    Anything short of turning back to The Great I Am that became flesh and dwelt among us and promoting His Kingdom/Will On Earth will be just that, short.  In fact it will merely bring His Righteous Judgments upon us quicker and more severe.

    “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, And I will give you rest. Take My yoke (i.e., His Law 1 John 5: 2 & 3, as well as His tithe [tax] sytem) upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and ‘YOU SHALL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.’ (Jer. 6: 16). My yoke is easy, and My load is light.” Matthew 11: 28 – 30.

    He instructed that if we ” … shall humble themselves (e.g., quit thinking we’re the sovereign, take our proper place and quit usurping His), and pray, and seek my face (e.g., He’s to be the ONLY law giver), and turn from their wicked ways (e.g., enforce His Laws, Statutes and Judgments); THEN will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chron. 7: 14.

    The only way to save this nation is to turn back to Him, His Perfect Moral Laws, Statutes and Judgments, i.e., His Kingdom/Will On Earth.

    Seek Him while He may yet be found. Look around, the judgments are happening before your eyes.

  4. 100% correct. One point overlooked, or unless I missed it: How do we explain Republicans when they vote against Obama and the Socialist agenda? Real simple. Just follow the actual totals. If the vote is not close, the Republicans whom claim to be Conservative will vote against. If the vote is close, most Republicans save the day for the President whom they love dearly! Why do the Republicans pander to Conservatives? To get their vote silly!


    There is only one trustworthy account of the six thousand year history of God and that is the sixty six books of the Bible.

    All the extra-Biblical historical accounts do not confirm the accuracy of the Bible. The Bible confirms that the extra-Biblical account are true only if they in fact parrot the Bible.

    2 Timothy 15-17 and from childhood you have know the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (NKJV)

    Where are the extra-Biblical historical writings that are inspired by God. Does anyone believe that historical writings outside of the Bible are totally trustworthy? I certainly do not.

    Are all church catechisms, creed books, statements of faith, and other extra-Biblical writings given by inspiration of God? Are they equal to God’s accounts of Himself found in the Bible?

    Why would denominations need creed books written by men as a guide or the final authority for faith and practice? Unless they are they exact copies of the Bible they are adding to or taking away from God’s personal account of the history of Himself.

    Creed books are written in order to promote man-made doctrine.

    God has His account of His history written in the Bible. God does need extra-Bible writings to validate the Bible.

    You can put your trust in God’s Bible or you can trust books written by men.

    Adam and Eve were the first to put their trust in someone other than God. They trusted Satan.

  6. Most of what said may have some Eye-Opening truth but WHY BLAME Abe Lincoln? In every Presidency there are people to dishonor. That does not make the President guilty of their acts.

    • There are also many cases where the president knows what goes on and does nothing to stop it, even if it is evil. And seeing that he is the highest elected official, if he is aware of what goes on that is wrong then he is responsible.

  7. So what do we do now? Google this: “America’s Remedy,” and watch the video. You will NEVER look at Abraham Stinking Lincoln the same again. But there IS a remedy – a legal one. You wonder WHY our government refuses to follow the Constitution? It’s been overthrown since the Civil War! We are operating under a “shell.” The shell that engulfs US – The Fourteenth Amendment: “While the Union survived the Civil War, the Constitution did not. In its place arose…the Fourteenth Amendment.” – Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall declared in 1987
