Propensity of Democracy to Licentiousness

Fisher Ames, a member of Congress while George Washington was President is quoted as saying, “The known propensity of a democracy is to licentiousness which the ambitious call, and the ignorant believe to be liberty.”

Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt were two ambitious men largely responsible for selling the lie that America is a democracy. Wilson peddled that we fought World War I “to make the world safe for democracy.” Roosevelt hawked that the U.S. “must be the great arsenal of democracy.” Their ambitions were to acquire the consent of the governed to allow their own and their neighbor’s private property to be confiscated for the causes of war and social welfare.

If power mongers can separate individuals from the knowledge of their Creator endowed rights and responsibilities they can separate them from their wealth and their freedom.

The ambitious have a vested interest in pushing their victims into licentiousness. If people do not trust in their Creator, they will more easily be led to demand a king to rule over them. Our Creator has given us the freedom to choose whom to serve. The licentious have rejected the protection of God and are looking for a false god who will promise to save them in their sin rather than from their sin. The ambitious are full of promises for the ignorant and the licentious to believe.
