Attempting to obey God and follow Jesus Christ our Lord

Who is the King in America?

By Bill Federer
Who is the King in America?”THE PEOPLE ARE THE SOVEREIGN OF THIS COUNTRY” – John Jay, First Chief Justice, Chisholm v. Georgia, 1793.

President James K. Polk stated December 7, 1847:


“THE PEOPLE ARE THE ONLY SOVEREIGNS RECOGNIZED BY OUR CONSTITUTION…

The success of our admirable system is a conclusive refutation of the
theories of those in other countries who maintain that a ‘favored few’ are born to rule and that the mass of mankind must be governed by force.”


President Grover Cleveland, July 13, 1887:

“THE SOVEREIGNTY OF 60 MILLIONS OF FREE PEOPLE, is…the working out…of the divine right of man to govern himself and a manifestation of God’s plan concerning the human race.”

President Gerald Ford stated September 13, 1975:

“Never forget that in America OUR SOVEREIGN IS THE CITIZEN…

The State is a servant of the individual. It must never become an anonymous monstrosity that masters everyone.”

How do THE PEOPLE exercise their sovereignty?

Through voting in elections.


On of the first elections recorded in America was in Woburn, Massachusetts, which was founded in 1642 by Captain Edward Johnson, a contemporary of Governor John Winthrop.


Captain Edward Johnson described the town’s first election in Wonder-Working Providences of Sion’s Saviour in New England, 1654:

“The number of faithful people of Christ…gather into a church…


Having fasted and prayed…they joined together in a holy Covenant with the Lord and with one another…

Those who are chosen to a place in government, must be men truly fearing God, wise and learned in the truths of Christ…

Neither will any Christian of a sound judgment vote for any, but those who earnestly contend for the faith.”


Alexis de Tocqueville wrote of elections in Democracy in America, 1835:

“If a political character attacks a (religious) sect, this may not prevent even the partisans of that very sect from supporting him;

but if he attacks all the sects together, every one abandons him and he remains alone…

Moreover, all the sects of the United States are comprised within the great unity of Christianity.”


On elections, President Calvin Coolidge stated in a Radio Address, NOVEMBER 3, 1924:

“I therefore urge upon all the voters of our country, without reference to party, that they assemble…at their respective voting places in the exercise of the high office of American citizenship,

that they approach the ballot box in the spirit that they would approach a sacrament, and there, disregarding all appeals to passion and prejudice, dedicate themselves truly and wholly to the welfare of their country.”

Calvin Coolidge continued:

“When an election is so held, it…sustains the belief that the voice of the people is the voice of God.”

On September 20, 2001, President George W. Bush addressed Congress after the 911 Islamic terrorist attack:

“Our enemy is a radical network of terrorists…They hate our freedoms – our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote.”
