17-Year-Old Conservative Republican Defeats an Incument in West Virginia

Written by Gary North on May 24, 2014

This is fun. A 17-year-old girl has defeated a Republican member of the state House of Representatives in West Virginia.

She is in a heavily Republican district. She is likely to win in November, when she will be 18.

She came out of nowhere. Her classmates, as seniors in high school, were allowed to vote if they will be 18 on November.

So, there is some incumbent in the state’s House who is wondering, “Wha’ happened?”

  1. Regardless how much better this young lady may be than those she's running against, compounded disobedience to Yahweh's law will ultimately never fix anything:

    "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." (Isaiah 3:12)

    "But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence" (1 Timothy 2:12)

    For more, see Chapter 28 "Amendment 19: The Curse of Women's Suffrage" of "Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective" at http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/BlvcOnline… followed by Chapter 32 "Amendment 26: The Curse of Children's Suffrage."

    Ted you nailed it, but our culture is so far gone, we have accepted the notion of women and children as 'equal', even thought the bible clearly teaches the opposite. Eve was deceived, Adam was not. Adam sinned, but the female mind is easily led astray. No matter how 'conservative' this girl seems now, when the pressure is on, she will cave to liberalism.

  3. I was not aware that St. Paul and The Self-Extent One were one and the same person.

    Your link does not work. Please repost.

  6. Sutekh, this has to do with the verbal and plenary inspiration of Scripture, and with the establishment of the canon by the early church. These are theological concepts you'll have to familiarize yourself with. You'll have to do some reading and study to bring yourself up to speed. And you can't just dismiss the whole idea in 2014 with a snort and wave of your hand. It doesn't work like that

    Hope is renewed by this young lady.

    This is somehow "good" ?? You're OK with some little girl to be part of law making ??

    God forbid she be raised and directed to become a Godly wife and mother !

    Your double mindedness never ceases to amaze me.

    And you are a member of a "Christian" church and call yourself a "Christian" ???   

    Do you study or even read the Bible (His Word) ???

    Females in positions of authority is part of our curse, be they "good" or bad: "Oh My people! Their oppressors are children, And women rule over them.  Oh My People! Those who guild you lead you astray, And confuse the direction of your paths." Isaiah 3: 12.

    That last part fits you, Gary. You're not only promoting females for such a position in direct violation of His Law, you're OK with children as well !!

    She, as well as any other female, in a position of authority over a man or men is out of order with God!  1 Timothy 2: 11 – 15; 1 Peter 3: 4 – 6; 1 Corinthians 14: 34 – 35.  (Note: The words poorly translated as "churches" and "church" referred to in 34 & 35 would be better described as the Body of Christ or His Civil Body Politic.)

    Let's see, the Christian's God mandates that women are not to be in positions of authority, but it's good and you give your full support to them to be in the highest legislature of the state.

    "… a double minded man, unstable in all his ways." James 1: 8.  "Cleanse your hands, you sinners (breakers of His Laws); and purify your hearts, you double minded. 4: 8.

    The only way to save the nations is to turn back to Him, His Perfect Moral Laws, Statutes and Judgments, i.e., His Kingdom/Will On Earth. Seek Him while He may yet be found.

    (A little side note: Do you also use the term "Ms" for women ? This came from the enemy inspired and directed "Women's Lib" movement back in the '60s & '70s as they didn't want the distinction of Married – "Mrs." or Unmarried – "Miss".  Thus the term "Ms."  Those who use of it are an accessory to their rebellion, knowingly or unknowingly, against The Almighty and His Word !)

    Headline author needs to proof read and learn to spell. Does jhe mean "incunbent"? I hope so, as what appears is NOT a word to my knowledge.

  10. Reality check! Some of you people can't accept the fact that a soon to be 18 year old politician has stepped up. Stop living in the 1920's. I believe that this young lady will do alot of good for her state and someday for America. Give her the benefit of a doubt. Politicians who have been in Washington for 4 to 5 decades need to retire. This is the millenialls time to shine and be the leader. The old farts can no longer do a good job. It's time for the millenial generation who I am a part of need to replace every single one of these old style foggies.

  11. Steve,

    You're the one in need of a reality check. When I was your age I thought I knew what was best too. You're in for a rude awakening. Moreover, I doubt if you even have a clue as to what life was in the 1920s.

    Putting her gender and child status aside for a moment, what does she know about law ?? Absolutely nothing ! And she's going to propose bills to make law ??

    What do you, or the vast majority of "voters" for that matter, know about law ?? Absolutely nothing !

    And you and that majority are going to vote for some little girl (or the majority of candidates who also know nothing about law, for that matter) to make laws ??! You've got you head up the wrong end of your anatomy again Steve.

    You're so foolish as to think things will change once the "style" changes.

    Justice and righteousness doesn't change with your or anyone else's foolish whims as to what is right or wrong. The foolish whims of man as to what mankind thinks is right or wrong and thus legislate it into law is what has brought us to the deplorable condition we now find our nation in.

    She's not qualified to make laws; you're not qualified to make laws; nor am I or anyone else qualified to make laws.

    The Almighty said: "I'm the same, yesterday, today and forever. I change not." And: "My Law is perfect. You shalt not add or subtract therefrom."

    We must turn back to The Almighty and His Commandments, Statutes and Judgments, not "hope" in "We The People's" constitution or this, that or the other Amendment, state legislatures, etc.; And most certainly not in some little girl fresh out of High School.

    What is very difficult for most to realize is that the corrupt system we now find ourselves living under today was inevitable over time.

    Knowingly or unknowingly, the door was established and opened by the Founding Fathers, which many claim were “Christian”.

    The process was allowed to begin when they decided “We The People” should be god (sovereign) and determine what is to be the law of the land.

    The legislative process provided by the various federal and state constitutions was the vehicle used by the enemy to corrupt over time (via gradual increments) and finally take over.

    This nation wanted to determine what was “good and evil” (remember the garden?), instead of enforcing His Perfect Moral Laws.

    Malim in se (evil in and of itself as defined by The Great I Am, the ONLY lawgiver) vs. malim prohibitum (evil because someone determines, or legislates, it to be evil).

    The result: We not only find evil, rotten, Marxist, Edomite Tares (as well as the "Twice The Sons of Hell they proselytized) corrupting the nation , we also find “The Communist Manifesto” and The Ten Planks contained therein, written by the Edomite, son of a Rabbi, Karl Marx, is the system our enemy was allowed to slowly ensnare us with, here in the good ol' U.S.S.A.

    All 10 Planks of The Communist Manifesto in Full Force In AmeriKa:  http://www.criminalgovernment.com/docs/planks.htm

    And now it’s morphed into Corporate Fascism; just one of many terrible results of replacing The Ten Commandments with Those Ten Planks.

    The only way to save this nation is to turn back to Him, His Perfect Moral Laws, Statutes and Judgments, i.e., His Kingdom/Will On Earth.

    He told us that if His people ” … shall humble themselves (e.g., quit thinking we’re the sovereign, take our proper place and quit usurping His), and pray, and seek my face (e.g., He’s to be the ONLY law giver), and turn from their wicked ways (e.g., seek His Kingdom/Will and promote the enforcement of His Laws, Statutes and Judgments); THEN will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

    “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, And I will give you rest. Take My yoke (i.e., His Law 1 John 5: 2 & 3, as well as His tithe [tax] system) upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and ‘YOU SHALL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.’ (Jer. 6: 16). My yoke is easy, and My load is light.” Matthew 11: 28 – 30.

    Seek Him while He may yet be found.

    Before you complain about someone else's bad spelling, make sure your spelling is correct! jhe (he), incunbent (incumbent).

    Well said!
