No Security Clearance Required for a Global Leader in a World Without Boundaries

Reader comment on item: Obama Would Fail Security Clearance
in response to reader comment: Alexis de Tocqueville must be turning in his grave.

As we see the United States of America decide that the Constitution should no longer apply, (indeed, the validation of the Declaration of Independence's statement of the ‘self-evidence of truth' is being challenged), many can hardly wait for this election to be over, though with extreme trepidation of the consequences. As much as anything else that may have some corollary effect, America's relationship with Israel is also on the line.

With a democratic victory, it can be immediately expected that Israel will find her station in this world dramatically altered. The Islamic Revolution will come to an immediate conclusion that the statement of President –Elect Obama will come to the forefront of his foreign (or not so foreign) relations, that of aligning with Muslims.

America may have a better chance at correcting her wrong position of maintaining the ‘Road Map to Peace' by sending it to the shredder and adopting the more correct position of keeping Israel intact. That this would put America directly in the path of a world intent on the destruction of Israel and everything else in that path would be true, but it would be a better path to obstruct than the one the Holy One of Israel has prepared for His return to Jerusalem. Seriously, who in their right mind expects to stop the LORD on His march to Jerusalem?

America does not need to be a democracy (though technically a republic) to be true to the LORD, but does need to be true to the LORD for her democracy to work as constitutionally envisioned. Otherwise, America will become yet another relic of history for defying the Holy One of Israel.
