What Would Thomas Paine Say? The Election of Donald Trump over the Socialism of the Radical Left

What Would Thomas Paine Say? ( ):
Thomas Paine would attempt to convey to the people that Donald Trump succeeded because he had the (Natural) Laws working for him -- Laws that he prevailed over in the previous lives his Soul lived.  And this is also why Barack Obama prevailed in his elections before Trump.   Yet, the American people remain totally ignorant of not only these Laws which the Deists who formed the Constitutional bedrock of the Nation portrayed as the Laws of Nature and Nature's God (see The Laws Of Creation ).   And while someone such as Thomas Paine could have explained the workings of these Natural Laws that control every aspect of the lives we live in this realm (see The Laws That Control Our Lives ), the American People fail to understand the very factor that has created what has often been portrayed as American Exceptionalism (see Natural Law And American Exceptionalism (see ).   And this prevailing ignorance of the very Forces of Law that has made America Great, is not at all understood by academia or the Church, to the detriment of the American People who unconsciously dwell in the Outer Darkness of Mind and Being (see ).   
More than anything else, the election of Donald Trump presents to the American People the opportunity to restore the Nation to the City of Light on the proverbial Hill as an example to the rest of the world.  But to accomplish this, the American People must begin to understand the Natural Laws that brought forth the Exceptionalism that has created the foundation of success they have enjoyed, and they must return to the First Principles of the Constitutional Framework of the Nation.  And since what is left of the Deists no longer understand the Natural Laws that brought them success at the time of our Nation's Founding, future success will be up to a restoration of the Original Teachings that were suppressed by the Church of Rome -- and since the Deists no longer understand the fabric of the Laws, this restoration will have to be accomplished by a group of enlightened individuals who have yet to emerge as a force of Truth and Light.  
The original Deists could in many ways be portrayed as a body of more spiritually mature believers and adherents of the Original Gospel Teachings -- i.e., quoting : In a letter from Thomas Jefferson to Benjamin Rush, Jefferson wrote respecting the relationship of Deism and Christianity: "To the corruptions of Christianity I am indeed opposed; but not to the genuine precepts of Jesus himself. I am a Christian, in the only sense he wished any one to be; sincerely attached to his doctrines, in preference to all others; ascribing to himself every human excellence; & believing he never claimed any other" This same exact thought is expressed  in the Wikipedia article under Deism: History of religion and the deist mission.   Most deists saw the religions of their day as corruptions of an original, pure religion that was simple and rational. They felt that this original pure religion had become corrupted by "priests" who had manipulated it for personal gain and for the class interests of the priesthood in general.   According to this world view, over time "priests" had succeeded in encrusting the original simple, rational religion with all kinds of superstitions and "mysteries" – irrational theological doctrines. Laymen were told by the priests that only the priests really knew what was necessary for salvation and that laymen must accept the "mysteries" on faith and on the priests' authority. This kept the laity baffled by the nonsensical "mysteries", confused, and dependent on the priests for information about the requirements for salvation. The priests consequently enjoyed a position of considerable power over the laity, which they strove to maintain and increase. Deists referred to this kind of manipulation of religious doctrine as "priestcraft", a highly derogatory term.  Deists saw their mission as the stripping away of "priestcraft" and "mysteries" from religion, thereby restoring religion to its original, true condition – simple and rational. In many cases, they considered true, original Christianity to be the same as this original natural religion. 
As Thomas Paine states in the above, the original Deists understood that the scriptures are an allegorical presentation of the Laws and Forces of Consciousness which when rightly understood, convey to the seeker the Cosmology of Mind and Being that is necessary to connect inwardly with our Source of Being.  That Thomas Paine understood this factual reality is confirmed in the article entitled Of The Religion Of Deism Compared With The Christian Religion, Paine hit the nail on the head when he writes:
But the Church of Rome having set up its new religion, which it called Christianity, invented the creed which it named the Apostle's Creed... It then manufactured the allegories in the book of Genesis into fact, and the allegorical tree of life and the tree of knowledge into real trees, contrary to the belief of the first Christians, and for which there is not the least authority in any of the books of the New Testament; for in none of them is there any mention made of such place as the Garden of Eden, nor of anything that is said to have happened there.  But the Church of Rome could not erect the person called Jesus into a Savior of the world without making the allegories in the book of Genesis into fact, though the New Testament, as before observed, gives no authority for it. All at once the allegorical tree of knowledge became, according to the Church, a real tree, the fruit of it real fruit, and the eating of it sinful.   As priestcraft was always the enemy of knowledge, because priestcraft supports itself by keeping people in delusion and ignorance, it was consistent with its policy to make the acquisition of knowledge a real sin...

...Reason is the forbidden tree of priestcraft, and may serve to explain the allegory of the forbidden tree of knowledge, for we may reasonably suppose the allegory had some meaning and application at the time it was invented. It was the practice of the Eastern nations to convey their meaning by allegory, and relate it in the manner of fact. Jesus followed the same method, yet nobody ever supposed the allegory or parable of the rich man and Lazarus, the Prodigal Son, the ten Virgins, etc., were facts.   Why then should the tree of knowledge, which is far more romantic in idea than the parables in the New Testament are, be supposed to be a real tree? The answer to this is, because the Church could not make its new-fangled system, which it called Christianity, hold together without it. To have made Christ to die on account of an allegorical tree would have been too barefaced a fable.
Not to understand why the authors of the scriptures HAD TO COMPOSE their sacred writings in the language of allegory, is to dwell in abject ignorance of man's own higher Soul and Spiritual Reality (see ).  And unless such enlightened men arise once again to guide the Nation back onto its original path and destiny, the present opportunity to restore America's Greatness will be squandered away.  So, where are the Deists and Spiritually Mature Christians today?   When the Nation needs them?   Will they return to their enlightened roots and reveal the source of the American Exceptionalism?   And restore the Nation to the original vision as the City of Light on the Hill?   Or, will another group arise because modern Deists are more accurately portrayed as Atheists who use Deism to oppose the Church?   Pagans worship Nature -- the Original Deists and Spiritual Christians understood the Natural Laws behind what we see with our physical senses -- and were therefore able to look beyond the images that Nature presents, to perceive the Source of Universal Consciousness within which all of Creation has their Being.
