We consider it a direct violation of the obligation imposed upon it by the Constitution for the Federal Government to dismantle or weaken our military establishment below that point required for the protection of the States against invasion, or to surrender or commit our men, arms, or money to the control of foreign or world organizations or governments.
Principle 25 in Cleon Skousen’s “5000 Year-Leap” states:
“Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations – entangling alliances with none.” – Thomas Jefferson, given in his first inaugural address.
Principle 24 in Cleon Skousen’s “5000 Year-Leap” states:
“A free people will not survive unless they stay [militaristically] strong.”
“among the many interesting objects which will engage your attention, that of providing for the common defense will merit particular regard. To be prepared for war is one of the most effectual means of preserving peace.” – George Washington
Principle 5 (of 8) of Hyrum L. Andrus’s “WAR AND SAINTS” states:
“A peace-loving country should keep itself militarily strong in order to defend the lives and the freedoms of its citizens.”
Of the six overriding principles in Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War”, the first is: “For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill.”
Our Federal Government’s responsibility to the American people is to keep our military strong and engaged only in Constitutional causes.
Although our capital, men, arms and money should never be committed to the control of foreign or world organizations or governments, it may be committed to the aid of a defenseless nation (for purposes of defense, NOT control) according to Principle 7 of Hyrum L. Andrus’s “WAR AND SAINTS” which states:
“Peace-loving individuals are justified in taking up arms for certain reasons [including] aiding a weak nation to defend itself against an aggressive power, when that weak nation has sought unsuccessfully to preserve peace and prevent conflict.”
The Independent American Party believes that God never justifies a man or a nation in being an aggressor; yet he expects the righteous to defend their lives and liberties against those who would destroy them.
