The Point of Politics Is To Punish Enemies and Reward Friends

So long as we insist on a hiearchal system of governance that is exactly ewhat we must have.  It still means we have a ruler who rules even when better options are available.

recall that an unaminous decision by the twelve is way more compelling and acceptable even when you believe it wrong.  thus i argue the Rule of Twelve as a governance tool.

A Big Man can be wrong and dead when his minion cuts his throat.  Instead call the twelve into council and then stand aside.  If they are wrong, then it is on them.

The Point of Politics Is To Punish Enemies and Reward Friends

In the current political landscape it has become increasingly clear that those who refuse to wield power to punish their enemies and reward their friends do not deserve to hold political power. The unfortunate reality is that those on the right side of the aisle have failed to understand this fundamental principle and as a consequence they have failed to wield political will in a way that is necessary to restore order.

The political left has demonstrated time and time again their willingness to use power to silence, attack, and destroy their opposition. This has been exemplified in their relentless pursuit of Donald Trump, the mass deplatforming of Gab in 2019 and 2020, as well as the recent attacks on Alex Jones and the ongoing persecution of the J6 political prisoners. These are not isolated incidents, but rather a calculated strategy employed by the left to maintain their grip on power and suppress any dissenting voices.

In order for the right to effectively combat this strategy, they must recognize that politics is fundamentally about wielding power to punish your enemies and reward your friends. It is not about appeasement, negotiation, or compromise with evil; it is about crushing it. The right must adopt this mentality if they hope to regain their rightful place in the political arena and restore order to a nation that has become increasingly divided and chaotic.

Unfortunately, many on the right have failed to grasp this reality. Instead of focusing their efforts on punishing their enemies and rewarding their friends, they have chosen to pursue policies that are more palatable to the political left. A prime example of this can be seen in the recent wave of “antisemitism hate speech bills” being passed by red state governors and Republicans in Congress. These bills ultimately serve to appease the left and the Jewish donor class and do little to address the root causes of the many crucial issues at hand in this country.

It is time for the right to take a stand and reclaim political power.

This begins with a fundamental shift in mindset – one that recognizes the importance of wielding power to punish enemies and reward friends. Only then can the right hope to earn the political will necessary to restore order and create a nation that truly reflects the values and principles upon which it was founded.

Political will is the driving force behind any successful political movement. It is the determination, courage, and steadfast commitment to a cause, which ultimately leads to the implementation of policies and changes that benefit the greater good. Those who possess political will understand that power is not to be taken lightly, and it is their responsibility to use it wisely and justly.

In Romans 13:1-7, the Apostle Paul outlines the role of government as an institution established by God to maintain order and promote righteousness. He writes, “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God” (Romans 13:1). This passage emphasizes that government is a divine institution, and its purpose is to serve God’s will.

Furthermore, the Bible teaches that government has a responsibility to reward good and punish evil. In 1 Peter 2:13-14, the Apostle Peter instructs believers to “be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good.” This passage highlights the dual role of government – to punish evildoers and to praise those who do good.

It is essential to recognize that there may be instances when governments fail in their duty to reward good and punish evil; as is the case currently. In such cases, the Bible teaches that believers have a responsibility to not obey these unjust governments and to instead obey God.

In Acts 5:29, the Apostle Peter and other apostles were summoned before the Sanhedrin, a governing council of Jewish leaders, for their persistent proclamation of the Gospel. Despite being commanded to cease their activities, Peter boldly asserted, “We must obey God rather than men.” This biblical account serves as a powerful reminder that our allegiance ultimately lies with God, even in the face of opposition from human authorities.

In the present day, we find ourselves confronted by a similar challenge. A ruling council of Jewish-controlled leaders in Congress and red state governments seeks to enact laws that would criminalize criticism of their actions and stifle the preaching of the Gospel. As faithful followers of Christ, we are called to remain steadfast in our commitment to obeying God’s commandments, regardless of the potential consequences imposed by earthly powers.

It is crucial to remember that our ultimate loyalty is to God, and we must not allow fear or intimidation to deter us from fulfilling our divine purpose. As Peter demonstrated in Acts 5:29, we must stand firm in our faith and resist the attempts of human authorities to infringe upon our religious freedoms and duties.

The Bible teaches that the purpose of government is to reward good and punish evil. This divine institution is established by God to maintain order and promote righteousness. As such, governments have a responsibility to serve God’s will by upholding justice, punishing evildoers, and praising those who do good. This biblical principle underscores the importance of just and righteous leadership in the governance of nations.

Republicans have utterly failed at this responsibility.

In the face of adversity, those who possess political will do not shy away from using the power at their disposal to punish their enemies and reward their friends. This is not an act of malice, but rather a strategic move to ensure the success of their cause and the protection of their supporters. It is a fundamental aspect of political leadership that cannot be ignored.

The right must embrace the power of punishment and reward if they hope to succeed in the current political climate. By doing so, they will not only be better equipped to combat the tactics of the left but will also demonstrate to their constituents and the nation as a whole that they are worthy of the political power they seek.
