The S.T.A.R. Forum was created as a 9.12 project following a TEA party. S.T.A.R. stands for Save The American Republic, and the concept comes from a speech from Oliver DeMille of George Wythe University.
He reminded us that people are moved by symbol and poetry, something that the right often lacks.
In Genesis 1:16 is says, “And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night, he made the stars also.” (italics added)
This verse obviously has meaning in relation to the creation. But the founders may have looked at it as a guide for ruling bodies. You could think about this one verse for days and find a plethora of meaning. I was thinking about it from a political standpoint.
After pondering on this one verse, and thinking “sensus plenior” the way our founding fathers thought, I have come to the idea that the greater light is the State Governments of this great country, there to handle our day-to-day activities as needed. The lesser light is the Federal Government, there to offer us protection in the night from our enemies, and the stars…..well, there are billions of them. They surround both the greater and the lesser lights. They hold the most power. That is us. We may number in the millions, but our power is felt. We are the STARS. And it will be our responsibility in the coming months, years, and decades, to Save The American Republic. As Glenn Beck so eloquently put it, “We surround them.”
Join us in this great cause. Be a STAR. For more information on how you can create The S.T.A.R. Forum in your area, click here.
