Ladies and Gentlemen:
On this day, November 5, in the year of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, 2008 AD, I declare my candidacy for the United States presidency, year 2012. My platform is the Authorized 1611 King James Bible. God Almighty wrote it as the supreme constitution and absolute authority in the affairs of all men for time and eternity. It shall never be necessary to change it.
Quality, leather bound copies of this Bible will be open on the desk in the White House oval office to Psalms 33:12, BLESSED IS THE NATION WHOSE GOD IS THE LORD, and also to Samuel 23:2, HE THAT RULETH OVER MEN MUST BE JUST, RULING IN THE FEAR OF GOD. It shall never be closed during my tenure. I will take the inauguration oath of office with my hand on the Bible, opened to Deuteronomy chapter 28.
God Almighty, the creator and Holy Sovereign of the universe, ordained only three institutions on earth: the FAMILY, the CHURCH and CIVIL GOVERNMENT. He wrote one book to govern all three, making them equally responsible to that one supreme book of law.
Every basic truth and fundamental philosophy required for proper survival here and hereafter is contained in that one book. IT'S THE GREATEST SINGLE BOOK EVER WRITTEN ON HUMAN GOVERNMENT, and upon its precepts our nation was conceived, born and nurtured to become the greatest nation in the history of the human race. WE'RE NOW REJECTING IT. Therein lies the eternal cardinal truth of why our nation continues to decay and deteriorate, morally and physically. Every failed civilization in recorded history rejected God's moral laws first, then collapsed physically. God will allow ours to be no different. We as a nation will either return to a Bible for divine direction or continue our human self destruction. God provides no other alternatives. Men shall ultimately stand before a high tribunal to be judged by God and His book, with no court of appeals, ever.
I encourage everyone to RETAIN, USE AND DISTRIBUTE MY WRITINGS AND POSITION PAPERS FROM THE PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGNS. THEY'RE AS APPLICABLE NOW AS BEFORE. I haven't shifted positions or altered course one iota. I never intend to, so help me God.
Yours for a nation under the authority of Almighty God,
United States Presidential Candidate, Year 2012
