A Thanksgiving Message

A Heritage Worthy of Thanks

Thanksgiving Day, 2014

As we reflect on the state of the nation, let us not forget that Liberty is a gift that was purchased for us with great sacrifice. Among the many things we have to be thankful for, we must be eternally grateful for the wisdom of men and women that understood that Liberty was a gift from God and that all God's gifts are worth our every sacrifice.

John Adams, in a letter to Abigail in 1777 expressed this sacrifice.

"Posterity! you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make a good use of it If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it."

We must honor this sacrifice by honouring their memory and continuing their efforts. Too often I see the revisionism of our history in an effort to demean these men and women with the purpose of destroying our nation. We do not properly respect their efforts by allowing these lies to be taught to our sons and daughters. We must teach the truth. We owe it to them. We owe it to our children.

I am not trying to give the founders some divine status or even suppose them a level of perfection that they did not have. We must understand that our nation was not founded upon people, but upon principles. The people that gave us our exceptional American principles were flawed vessels just like you and me. However, the really amazing part of this history is that flawed men understood that the foundation of an enduring nation must be liberty moored in morality. Consider these words by Alexander Hamilton:

Equal pains have been taken to deprave the morals as to extinguish the religion of the country [France], if indeed morality in a community can be separated from religion…The pious and moral weep over these scenes as a sepulcher destined to entomb all they revere and esteem.

The politician who loves liberty sees them with regret as a gulf that may swallow up the liberty to which he is devoted. He knows that morality overthrown (and morality must fall with religion), the terrors of despotism can alone curb the impetuous passions of man, and confine him within the bounds of social duty. (emphasis original)

The Stand, No. III (April 7, 1798)

Our founders knew that Liberty is a combination of two equally important parts – it is FREEDOM under the constraints of MORAL LAW. Liberty cannot survive where there is pure freedom. Pure freedom gives man the right to do whatever is right in his own mind: cheat, lie, rob, murder. Pure freedom is anarchy. At the same time, Liberty cannot survive with moral law alone. Moral law not mingled with freedom is theocracy. Theocracy in the hands of men is tyranny in the name of religion. Our founders attempted give us this balance and secure the blessings of liberty for us in our founding documents. When we abandon our founding documents and disregard our moral foundations, liberty is in peril.

Thomas Jefferson gave us this warning, "Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift from God?"

While Benjamin Franklin warned America's founders directly:

"In the beginning of the Contest with Great Britain, when we were sensible of danger, we had daily prayer in this room for Divine protection…. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of Superintending Providence in our favor…have we now forgotten that powerful Friend? or do we imagine we no longer need His assistance?…. God Governs in the affairs of men And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?"

Patrick Henry said "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. Besides, 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."

As an exceptional nation built upon exceptional principles, we cannot deny that we are built with a foundational understanding of an exceptional God. Thomas Jefferson reminds us that, "We are not in a world ungoverned by the laws and the power of a Superior Agent. Our efforts are in His hand, and directed by it; and He will give them their effect in His own time."

Because of our historical understanding that our nation was built on the principles of freedom and morality, America has always been the haven of rest when tyrants oppress their own. She is the vineyard of innovation and opportunity. This is the nation that opens its arms to the tired, to the poor, to the oppressed, to the huddled masses yearning to breathe free. No other nation can claim this legacy, no other people has this birthright. This is the shining city upon a hill, and we cannot hide our light under a bush.

The focus of our education should not be on the flaws of the men who gave us this nation, but on the exceptional nation that they gave us. We have an exceptional nation where "all men are created equal and endowed with certain inalienable rights." A nation birthed by the principle that the power of the government is to be held BY the people and not where the government holds power OVER the people. A nation that believes the principle that says all are free to worship according to the dictates of their conscience, and all are equally free, "Jews, Turks, pagans, AND Christians." A nation that has prospered based on the principle that ideas and hard work open the door to prosperity regardless of bloodline, skin color or social status. A nation that has remained free based on the principle that liberties remain secure by maintaining the right to defend self, property, and Liberty.

In the profound words of Daniel Webster, "Is our Constitution worth preserving? Guard it as you would guard the seat of your life, guard it not only against the open blows of violence, but also against that spirit of change…Miracles do not cluster. That which has happened but once in six thousand years, cannot be expected to happen often. Such a government, once destroyed, would have a void to be filled, perhaps for centuries, with evolution and tumult, riot and despotism." An Anniversary Address by Daniel Webster July 4th 1806

So in this time of Thanksgiving, let us maintain a true focus on what is important. In this day it is so popular to denigrate America for every little flaw. Why not take back a bit of American Exceptionalism? Why not embrace what makes us different from every other nation on the globe? America is an exceptional nation because we are built on exceptional principles. Principles of Liberty, freedom, morality, and equality as derived from our Creator. And these principles are STILL WORTH FIGHTING FOR!

Happy Thanksgiving America! May God continue to bless this exceptional nation.

Itís time to impeach
The Constitution of the United States provides only one way to stop a despotic president—IMPEACHMENT:

The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. (Article 2, Section 4)

It is therefore our duty as a people, while we still can, to expose treasonous, criminal behavior by those in high office through impeachment, and to demand that our representatives follow through and convict.

Impeachment is America's last remaining hope of blocking the dictatorial reign of the imposter and usurper in the White House, Barack Hussein Obama. And the window for doing so is closing fast upon us. The longer we wait, the more the man will continue to dismantle our constitutional republic, our national security, our electoral system, our economic strength, our rights and liberties—and we may be left to see the foolishness of our inaction from the hindsight of harsh reality.

We will wish then that we had acted when it was timely to do so.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. —Isaiah 9:6

Christmas is our season of joy, our celebration of what the gospel of John describes as a Light who came into the world to dispel darkness—Christ Jesus. "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, and none come to the Father but through me." —John 14:6

Christians mark many Biblical proofs given to us that, by our Heavenly Father's infinite mercy and grace, the Light triumphs over darkness—Jesus surviving the slaughter of the innocents, the many miracles of His earthly ministry, and definitively His sacrificial Passion and triumphal Resurrection! We know through faith the Light of the world ultimately vanquishes all evil.

ABOLISH THE IRS, REPEAL THE
16th AMENDMENT

Out-of-Control IRS MUST BE SHUT DOWN and
OUR FINANCIAL FREEDOM RESTORED!

DEMAND CONGRESS PASS THE FAIR TAX

Obamacare for now is rolling on like a juggernaut. And what cannot be denied is that its implementation calls for some 17,000 new IRS "enforcement officers" to audit the American people and impose the new taxes and mandates compelled under the so-called Affordable Care Act.

Despite the Obamacare train wreck, and regardless of mounting evidence to the contrary in the IRS Tea Party scandal, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney recently stated that Obama wants the public to "understand and believe that the IRS applies our tax laws in a neutral and fair way to everyone."

Fat chance.

'A Bucket Brigade': The most simple, feasible way to take back America!

By ALAN KEYES

Impeachment must be the centerpiece of the 2014 elections – and candidates for both houses must sign a pledge to impeach!
Boehner must be dumped as Speaker and replaced with the next president of the United States, whoever that may be, chosen by the House – the 'people's chamber'!
WND.com is reporting on the activities of people who have been gathering on highway and other overpasses in different parts of the country with signs advocating the impeachment of Barack Obama. Practically every day brings fresh evidence that Obama and his appointed henchmen have abandoned their oath to uphold the Constitution. Major elements of their policy agenda directly and plainly violate the Constitution, including:
  • Their national health policy's violation of the free exercise of religion with respect to the practice of abortion;

  • Their national security policy's violation of the 4th Amendment (unwarranted NSA data mining);

  • Their military policy's suppression of militarily innocuous religious practices by military personnel, in violation of the 1st Amendment;

  • Their social policy's enforced acceptance of homosexual marriage, disparaging and denying the God-endowed rights of the natural family, which the Constitution's 9th Amendment plainly forbids;

  • Their immigration and border security policy's failure to take care that the laws are faithfully executed, in violation of Article II.3 of the Constitution;

  • Their policies for the national defense, in particular their decisions flagrantly to sacrifice the lives of American military and diplomatic personnel, as well as their increasingly egregious failure to maintain the nation's strategic nuclear deterrent, all in evident disregard of the goal set out by the people in the Preamble to the Constitution "to provide for the common defense";

  • And their persistent moves toward the general disarmament of the people, in violation of the 2nd Amendment prohibition against infringing the right of the people to keep and bear arms.
All these policies, and the malfeasant actions and activities to which they give rise, constitute high crimes and misdemeanors within the meaning of the constitutional language that specifies the terms on which the U.S. House and Senate, respectively, may move to impeach and remove civil officers of the United States...
