Thomas argues that the Democrats are more devoted to pursuing man's government over God's government. Under God's government, we rely on each other to voluntarily pursue acts of charity. Rather than to allow individuals to act freely to help others in need, man's government forces others to pay in the form of taxes to redistribute income to those in need. The Democrats and their policies rely on man's government to a much greater degree. To be fair, Thomas does not argue favorable towards Republicans, but does say that they tend to rely somewhat less on man's government.
You may now be wondering how the Cowboy Monkey Rodeo relates to these two books. Fair question. During the last segment of the Cowboy Monkey Rodeo, the man who works with the monkeys and dogs for the performance gave a little speech. He said that we as a country had lost our way. We had failed to adhere to our founding principals and that we had pushed God further away from our lives.
So, when I say that I believe we do need to fundamentally transform this country, it is in the form of a Spiritual transformation. I am not saying that we need to become a theocracy. Nor am I saying that everyone in the country needs to become a born again Christian. What I am saying is that we need to return to the principals that this country was founded upon and that made the United States what it was. With God's help, we can.
