Every problem we face today has evolved from We The People who have forgotten our teachings regarding history, of those who fought so determined, and absolute, for the freedoms, and liberties, that we so easily take for granted everyday.
What do we know about those who fought so hard to change those ways,and what we teach our children?What about the ones who have spent a lifetime really screwing up those valued principles? I'm not just talking about the changes in the last fifty years or so.I'm talking about, just how far back do these roots grow? I've always understood it, if you want to fix something, that you need to get to the root of the problem.
Lets not confuse this people, I mean every *single* problem here now, on this big o platter of life we're living today, stems from our neglect to DO WHAT WAS RIGHT FOR THE BETTERMENT of this country, and its people. Think about what I'm saying.! Had everyone, or at least one person of every family, taught, or just reminded others in their immediate families of the importance to pass it on;
Patrick Henry :
"Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Beside, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of Nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us."
War is Inevitable, March 1775.
James Madison :
"The ultimate authority...resides in the people alone."
"It is proper to take alarm at the first experiment upon our liberties. We hold this prudent jealousy to be the first duty of citizens and one of the noblest characteristics of the late Revolution.
The freemen of America did not wait till usurped power had strengthened itself by exercise and entangled the question in precedents. They saw all the consequences in the principle, and they avoided the consequences by denying the principle. We revere this lesson too much ...to forget it."
Samuel Adams :
"The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards."
John Adams :
"People and nations are forged in the fires of adversity."
"Wherever the standard of freedom and independence has been or shall be unfurled, there will be America's heart, her benedictions and prayers, but she goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator of her own."
Alexander Hamilton :
"The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature by the hand of the Divinity itself, and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power."
Benjamin Franklin :
"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."
George Washington :
"I hope I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man."
Thomas Jefferson :
"On every question of construction of the Constitution, let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed."
Do we fully understand what they were saying here?... Do we remember what they did?... Can you really imagine the tyranny they were so hell bent on changing, and why?..Everything these ancestors did... was for US! When did we stop teaching about the event, the time in life, that was only second, or maybe the third most important event in the history of all mankind? Like I have written in other articles, all you have to do is ask WHY. I believe that the Birth of Christ, was number 1, the Resurrection, number two. The Revolutionary War,number 3.THE BIRTH OF THE GREATEST NATION ON EARTH...
I PERSONALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THESE VERY IMPORTANT LIFE CHANGING EVENTS ARE NO LONGER TAUGHT IN OUR SCHOOLS, HELL WE CAN'T EVEN SING CHRISTMAS CARROLL'S THERE! WHAT ARE WE BECOMING AMERICA, WHO ARE WE? WHAT THE FUCK HAVE WE DONE?
