Open letter to House speaker John Boehner and all US Congressmen

Open letter to House speaker John Boehner and all US Congressmen,

HOLD FIRM! NO TAX INCREASE FOR ANYONE! NO increase in the Debt ceiling! The government needs more money “from the rich” like a drug addict needs “one more fix” before he decides to quit or an alcoholic needs “one more beer” before he starts to sober up! STOP RIGHT NOW!

It should be obvious to anyone with one eye and half a brain that the REAL goal in all this political posturing by Barak Obama and many Democrats is simply the advancement of Communism in America. I don’t understand how ANYONE- Republican, Democratic or Independent can want to increase “revenues” even one more dime! There is a spending problem not a revenue problem but it goes even deeper than that!

The entire idea of “take from the rich and ‘redistribute’ to the poor” is pure Communism 101. Go to ANY communist country to see how they got there and the end result. They always follow Karl Marx’s thinking and the idea that you take two steps forward and one step back. Everyone thinks they backed up but they are actually one step closer to the goal! That is all Barak is doing. Don’t “compromise” ONE INCH!

Everyone in Congress, the Senate and the Executive branch (and judicial branch!) took an oath to follow and defend the U. S. Constitution. I would suggest they ALL get it off the shelf, dust it off and read it. It’s only a few pages long. It gives the clear limits of government. I can solve the financial crisis in 10 minutes! Follow the Constitution! Why are “The Feds” involved in: education? a war on drugs? foreign wars that don’t involve us? welfare of any kind? medical decisions of any kind?

You should follow the Constitution and “coin money” and shut down the mis-named “Federal Reserve” and put us on a real money basis. Why do you let private bankers print our “money?” Shut down about 95% of all government programs and lay off about 95% of the government workers and release all federal prisoners who did commit a crime on federal property like Post Offices and Military bases and scale the Fed WAY back to what the founders envisioned. Stop calling ANYTHING an “entitlement.” There are NO entitlements. No one is “entitled” to welfare, Social Security, Obama Care, Medicare, education or 1,000 other programs at the federal level. If ANY program cannot be found in the Constitution you swore to uphold, shut it down. Stop funding it! That is your job. That would “balance the budget” in 10 minutes!

There you have it. Everyone else seems to be giving their ideas on the fiscal cliff so I’d throw in my 2 cent’s worth. We went over the cliff MANY years ago. The ONLY solution to America’s SERIOUS problems is found in II Chronicles 7:14. Our problem is spiritual and the solution is spiritual not political. We need to return to our godly heritage. God would have spared Sodom if He could have found 10 righteous people. Are there 10 in Congress? The Senate? In the Executive branch? Judicial? I pray so!

The founders knew that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. They also knew the power to tax is the power to destroy. They gave CLEAR instructions in the Constitution about taxes and what the federal government could and could not do. Go to and read what the founders said. They gave great advice for times like these!

Speaker Boehner, you folks in Congress are supposed to control the purse strings. Well, DO YOUR JOB PLEASE! Don’t vote for ANY spending outside the limits of the very document you swore to uphold. If the president wants to go over the cliff, let him. DON’T have your fingerprints ANYPLACE ON IT PLEASE! We need Statesmen NOT politicians! Ignore the polls, the Senate, the media, the critics and follow the Constitution please. For all of us!

    Dr. Hovind,

    Thank you very much for your most valuable work. I could go into great length telling you of my testimony on how you led the charge in pulling me out of this world’s godless gutter by your creation seminars. It is no doubt to me that satan through his rulers of darkness put you away for the great work you were doing. I pray for your soon release and plan to attend your first speaking event following.

    your brother in Christ,

    P.S. Would love to hear your thoughts on Way of Life Literature, Inc and David Cloud at:

    Fantastic blog! If only they would listen to you! I wanted to let you know I was thinking of you this morning and praying for you. I wish there was time to write all the people I think about, but there just isn’t, so when I saw your blog I wanted to let you know how many times we think of you and how you have impacted our lives. And now there are children in Guatemala that have heard of you too!! God bless! =]

    So you think that American people aren’t entitled to health treatment? So that anytime anyone is injured they go fundamentally bankrupt and are left with the financial pain for the rest of their lives.

    Have you even looked at the President’s offer? It is a balance. A balance! Not left, not right, but centre. Unfortunately, the republicans spending cuts would throw America down an even steeper cliff.

    Get some perspective.

    • alamar January 2, 2013 2:10 pm Reply

      manofperspective: transition from communism back to Christian-based individualism, slow transition could work, where eventually health care costs would be much lower and true charity toward those in need would rescue far more people than the government ever could.

      Of course it will never happen; we are well and truly on the path to destruction; and if Hussein Obama aint the Antichrist, he is a taste of things to come.

    Dear Kent, I agree with this letter you have written 100%! America is falling apart, and we are letting them destroy it! So many are “willingly ignorant” as you say. It blows my mind, how many are just walking around with their head in the clouds, or rather “smoking something legal”, because they don’t have the guts to live in the real world and do something! They are like the cat that follows the laser beam, oblivious to what’s going on under there nose! Some are just pure evil, selfish and power hungry. This life is just temporary, we don’t take it with us. We as Bible believing Christians need to stand up, and not be sheep! There is power in numbers! I am praying for you brother Hovind and have been, I know your being Salty in there though! I pray for your family and you to keep up the fight, and stay strong! God Bless you.

    Funny, the UK isn’t a communist state. It’s slightly more socialist than the US. The things Obama’s promoting are not new or radical (or dangerous) policies, but in fact just entirely normal socially-responsible initiatives.

    What do you care about people being taxed your just going to commit tax evasion again. I can solve the debt crisis in one sentence. Tax churches. Your only a Republican because of how much money you funnel from your supposed charities.

    • Time to Keep December 30, 2012 2:23 pm Reply

      So you want to tax gifts of charity that have already been taxed? Is a gift or donation income? How could that ever be tax evasion? When you give some cash to a family member, is that a taxable event?

      Most of Dr. Hovind’s ‘counts’ are for violating a ‘code’ that is for the business of banking. For the record even the ‘codified version’ says that the bank is required to fill out the form, not Dr. Hovind or his Church. Look it up, I did. I would also advise you to go read the original law in the Statutes at large before Judging him.

    You mean like the military?

    • Constitutionally Literate January 20, 2013 1:34 pm Reply

      The military IS one of the few areas our Constitution designates as federally controlled.

      Please read the constitution and then join the fight to defend it.

      Wisely, the Constitution requires a 2/3 Senate vote to declare war. Unfortunately since WWII (the last declared war) the unconstitutional practice of presidents sending troops to un-voted on “conflicts” is NOT constitutional.

    I think we all need to become historians. If you think that a society can be engineered by its government and that fallible folks elected by fallible people can make good choices about the spending of tax dollars they didn’t earn – then you don’t know history. It definitely sounds all nicey nice to say we need to “help” people, but that is the church’s job, not the government’s. For example, if everyone paid 10% in taxes, how much would you have to help your brother in need? A lot more than you do now, and it would go directly to him instead of through red tape. It all comes down to freedom. Do you want to have a government that owns you or do you want to be free? A fish in water does not know it needs water until it is taken out of the water. We have the illusion of freedom in many ways, but it is being taken away a little at a time. The Constitution was not written to give us freedom. The Founders believed we already have our freedom, given to us from God. The Constitution was written to govern the government….to tell them what they can and cannot do. Somehow we are now the “governed” . I am reading “7 Men Who Rule the World from the Grave” (recommended by Dr. Hovind) and it is so obvious that man has moved towards worshiping his own intellect instead of God’s and that is how we end up in this mess. Thanks for all you do, Dr. Hovind.

    (Also – check out a new book being released in April by 2 leaders and statesmen that proposes a solution….. )

    Thank you many times for your explanations about creation,right or wrong it give me a reasonable explanation I can cling to. Our Bible study group is about to begin showing your DVDs. My son-in-law taught a class in our church using your videos and out of 2000 members only 12 were at all interested in how it all happened. Mostly I guess Christians are more willing to accept science’s version.
    I do hope you will be released from prison soon but I’m sure the Gov’t is making an example of you. As a home builder for years I do know you can’t beat the tax system, nor can you build without permits and inspections. It’s the law and the Bible does tell us we must be subject to the laws of the land. Though at the time I felt you were wrong in you stance I feel sad that you have had to pay such an awful price for bucking the system.
    I introduced a friend of mine to your series and he stopped at your house when in Fl.and you were so kind to him. You had him wait while you dressed for church and you and him walked to church together. He said your wife played the piano for the church. He was highly impressed by what an nice treatment you gave him and how casually you warmed up to him like a brother in Christ. He died some years ago but I never forgot how impressed he was with you warmth.
    I continue to pray for your freedom and health, bless you and your family. Clyde

    I have lisetened and watched many hours of your speaches and debates. I agree with a lot of things you say. I believe that you have inspired, motavated and helped many people in some ways. However, the fact still remains you failed to “give to Caesar that which was Caesar’s.” You broke the law. You knowingly and willfuly refused to pay your taxes.
    You could when many people to Christ if you confessed your pride, arrogance and deceptions and asked God to forgive you and change you. I say these things as a friend and one who prays for you and your familly.

    I am a 30 year old man. I am first a Christian, a husband, a father and a migrant worker. I think it is shameful how lazy people are in the US (not all, but most). To the communists that are on this page: have you ever worker on a farm? Did you know that America has more jobs than people? That is the reason tens of millions of latinos, thais and others flock to America, you have plenty of jobs, they may be on a farm or cleaning up construction sites, or cutting your grass, but they’re jobs. What America doesn’t have is work ethic, and THAT is why it will fall. I have picked your tomatoes, zucchini, cantaloupe, peppers just to name a few. I have seen Americans try it for a day and quit because it doesn’t look like a real job. But if you would just realize that the reason your country is morally bankrupt and broke as well, is because just like Sodom, you are full of bread and idle, then you wouldn’t have the fate of it. But since honest workers like myself have been paying for you, I want you to know how ashamed you should feel. I work and get my money taken away because this country is too lazy to pick its’ own food. And our family still has to leave every six months, because you guys don’t like us here. Grow up and work ‘manofperspective’ and ‘Paul M’, and don’t complain about paying for me, because I pay for you! I’ve lived a socialist and a communist country and you are a fool if you think that’s what is good for your children. Communism is like building a castle sand, when it falls, great will be the fall thereof. ‘He that hates gifts shall live’.

    I am an American living overseas in a European country. I can tell you what’s coming! We are not as bad off as the rest of Europe, but this is what we pay for FREE Healthcare: 45% income tax, 25% sales tax. We have friends that have been waiting over a year for medical treatment because they are “older.” EVERONE PAYS THE TAX: NO EXEMPTIONS unless you are poor. Poor meaning you are on drugs and have many children, then the goverment provides free housing, free daycare, and free checks each month. The children cotinue to suffer while mom and dad neglect the children while they do their drugs. Abortions are rampant which means the majority of the population is getting too old. There are not enough tax payers to support the society, so every year the income tax goes up. I think it’s too late for America! BUT AT LEAST YOU GET FREE HEALTHCARE!!!:>)

    Wow! Your exactly right! If people could just see the real reason America is in the shape it’s in (like you said), we could start solving the root causes and issues of the problem instead of driving us farther in debt and slowly moving away from what our founding fathers said in the constitution. They are slowly destroying America and unless people will turn to god and realize the real issue… It doesn’t look good,

    Mr. Hovind: With a strong interest and degree in the sciences and a follower of Walt Brown, I watched with fascination as you brilliantly debated against the myth of evolution. In my desire to learn more about you I googled you on the Internet…..and to my dismay discovered you are in jail. Mr. Hovind, you are not “in chains” because of Christ……you are in prison because you didn’t pay your taxes. “Render unto Caeser what is Caeser’s”, Jesus says. Along with so many others in public ministry your pride has brought shame on our Savior. Rather than reveling in Jesus cover of blood for your sins, you are haughty in your cover of pride.

    Social programs are needful. There are those who are poor or less fortunate than others. I believe the scripture is clear that those with more opportunity should distribute to those who have less.

    Taxing the rich is necessary and they shouldn’t complain when social programs are in place. If they were in a situation were they needed help, I am sure they wouldn’t complain..

    When people abuse the social programs for profit, then that is wrong of course. But when it’s used to get a foot in the door or get back on track, then it’s necessary.
