Democracy Deception?

For many walk, of whom I often told you, and now tell you even weeping, that they are enemies of the cross of Christ, whose end is destruction, whose god is their appetite, and whose glory is in their shame, who set their minds on earthly things. For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself. (Philippians 3.18-21 NASB)

This post may be hard for many of my fellow Americans to swallow. However, I want the truth, not something to tickle my ears.

I was about to write about Democracy and our (USA) intention to spread it around the world this morning. It was tentatively entitled "Democracy: God Ordained or Opposing God?" Since Democracy and the idea of a Representative Republic are basically rule by the people, I felt that our zeal may be misplaced in promoting Democracy around the world. When the world chooses, it always chooses wrong, never what is good or right. (ALL HAVE TURNED ASIDE, TOGETHER THEY HAVE BECOME USELESS; THERE IS NONE WHO DOES GOOD, THERE IS NOT EVEN ONE." -Romans 3.12 NASB)

I wrote the music post instead. Don Walton, however, did write about this topic on December 19, 2005. His post can be found at the Time For Truth blog and here is a teaser:

Where do we get the idea that democracy is God's favorite form of human government? It was a monarchy that God set up for ancient Israel, not a democracy. God's Son will soon return as the rightful heir to Israel's throne to rule over the whole world "with a rod of iron" (Revelation 12:5; 19:15). There will be neither polling places nor opinion polls during Christ's Millennial Reign. As absolute Sovereign, Christ will rule by divine authority, not majority consent, and will execute the divine will, not public opinion.

In the second chapter of Daniel, the Prophet Daniel interprets the horrifying image haunting the dreams of King Nebuchadnezzar as a panorama of history's Gentile world powers. Interestingly, each successive Gentile world power decreases in value. Babylon, where the king was supreme, is represented by the image's head of gold. Medo-Persia, where the law was supreme (see Daniel 6:12-15 and Esther 8:8), is represented by the image's silver breast and arms. Greece, where democracy was born, is represented by the image's bronze stomach and thighs. Rome, the representative republic from which our own government was modeled, is represented by the image's iron legs. And finally, the image's feet are representative of the end time Gentile world power, which will prove insufficient for the image's support and incapable of holding together, since it consist of a mixture of iron and clay.

Clay in the Bible represents man. For instance, the name of the first man, "Adam," means "red." A fitting name for one created by God from the red clay of the earth (Genesis 2:7). In light of this, we may conclude that the end time Gentile world power will not only be a representative republic, like Rome, but also a worldwide champion of democracy and the rights of the people. Sound like any country you know?

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
