On the Lordship of Christ and the Future of the Constitution Party of Georgia (Given March 15, 2008) by Ricardo Davis, State Chairman

An excellent speech on how Christ's Lordship should affect a statesman's decisions.  Some excerpts:
We, the members of the Constitution Party, gratefully acknowledge the blessing of the Lord God as Creator, Preserver and Ruler of the Universe and of this Nation. We solemnly declare that the foundation of our political position and moving principle of our political activity is our full submission and unshakable faith in our Savior and Redeemer, our Lord Jesus Christ. We hereby appeal to Him for mercy, aid, comfort, guidance and the protection of His Divine Providence as we work to restore and preserve this Nation as a government of the People, by the People, and for the People. ...
The American Republic is dying but the root cause is not the undermining of its Constitution. America's demise is rooted in a national rebellion against the Creator referred to in the Declaration of Independence and revealed in the Holy Bible. 
The Scriptures repeat this theme to every nation: repent from your violation of God's moral law and His wrath and judgment will be stayed, honor and obey Him and enjoy His favor and blessing. In acknowledging the Lordship of Christ we recognize that America's political polytheism is a key indicator of the root problem and a national repentance is the solution, not a return to the Constitution. Should the Constitution Party National Committee ever choose to embrace this political polytheism then it will go the way of the Whig and Republican parties. However the Constitution Party of Georgia will not follow.
