My screed against our 8 year kings

I posted this at Vox Day, but it was too good to not post here too:

Royalist, Loyalist here. Rolling around laughing heartedly at the you people. Losers. The total failure of your system is coming home to roost. A Kenyan Marxist rules over you who hates you. Total incompetency in Repubicrat leadership. Look at the field--anybody """inspire""" leadership like a Monarch does?

Or maybe something like this:

Samuel told all the words of the LORD to the people who were asking him for a king. He said, “This is what the king who will reign over you will claim as his rights: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots. Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. Your male and female servants and the best of your cattle and donkeys he will take for his own use. He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, but the LORD will not answer you in that day.” (1 Samuel 8:10-18 NIV).

Moreover, the Lord said "Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king." (1 Samuel 8:7a).
God gave us a constitutional republic, but that wasn't good enough for America. We had to keep our slaves in violation of our own moral positions and God's law. As punishment, He gave us Lincoln. Then we had to be jealous of Europe's kings and empires, so God gave us Teddy Rex, Wilson, and FDR.

We have our kings, and they don't take 10 percent, they take 40 and want more. We don't cry out to God for relief, we cry out to our next 8 year king, and we get what we deserve. Cain will just be yet another link in the chain. Paul will be the best choice, but even he can only resist the efforts of the rest of government. He can't be our savior.

The US needs to repent of the conceit that government can protect us. Only God can do that. So long as we worship our 8 year king, his 9 black-robed priests, and the 535 little princes on a hill, God will continue to allow us to get the government we deserve.
