Huck on American History

Huck on American History

I recieved this comment from my old submarine mate, Huck. It is worth your time to read and tell to your children. I wish our school kids all knew and understood this information. They do not, from all that I can tell.

The following is a direct quote of my mate, Howard Hawkins (Huck).

VTM, 5/15/12

James Madison was one of three (3) men who wrote the Federalist Papers between 1787 and 1788 supporting the ratification of the U.S. Constitution which was and did finally replace the then existing Articles of Confederation.The other men were John Jay and Alexander Hamilton…there were a total of 85 papers written.

I think it important to deposit this history of information because of its impact on the early development of our Government.These men were very instrumental in getting the States to ratify the U.S.Constitution.

They were brilliant individuals who knew and understood the significance of a new form of governing never before implemented in the then existing world countries. This new government…a Republic not a Democracy was to give major power,rule to the States and individuals and limit the central body,i.e.the Federal Government in the dispensing of power and control.

If you take the time to read history,and familiarize yourself’s with how the Federal Government is governing today Madison’s comment rings loud and clear….we are losing our freedoms by silent encroachment of those in power now-”WAKE UP AMERICA”,otherwise the CANDY MAN will SOON become your JAILER.

It Is Natural To Abuse Power: Term Limits for America!

It Is Natural To Abuse Power: Term Limits for America!

Is it not plain to see that our politicians commonly use their positions of power to feather their own nests at the expense of the Republic and we, the people?

It is imperative that those who know how to bring such an initiative, bring a vote so Americans can set term limits upon their so-called political “servants”.

I’ll bet that Alexander Hamilton would agree.

Alexander Hamilton on States Rights

The following is from Founder’s Quote Daily by patriotpost.com

“But as the plan of the convention aims only at a partial union or consolidation, the State governments would clearly retain all the rights of sovereignty which they before had, and which were not, by that act, EXCLUSIVELY delegated to the United States.” –Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 32

States Rights vs. The Feds

States Rights vs. The Feds

The Federal Government has increasingly gained control over the states. centralized control of traditional states rights is an anathema to the freedoms envisioned by our Founding Fathers.

“While the constitution continues to be read, and its principles known, the states, must, by every rational man, be considered as essential component parts of the union; and therefore the idea of sacrificing the former to the latter is totally inadmissible.” —Alexander Hamilton, speech to the New York Ratifying Convention, 1788

Censorship of Moral Values

August 27, 2009

Censorship of Moral Values

It is a bizarre twist that the minority secular forces in America, through the judiciary, have convinced the body politic that censorship of almost any sort is akin to a mortal Sin. Then, in the same way, they perpetrate the grand fraud that the Constitutional Separation of Church and State means that all references to Judeo/Christian guidelines to moral conduct must be expunged from the public domain.

Both are a monumental lies. These lies have credibility only because America has failed to educate its children, therefore its general public, about its own precious history;  the religiously based moral precepts of its Founding Fathers and their original intentions, hopes and dreams for our future.

The following quotes are taken from “Rediscovering God in America: Reflections on the Role of Faith in our Nation’s History and Future”, by Newt Gingrich.

“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports” (p. 19).

George Washington, Farewell Address

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other'” (p. 19).

John Adams

“Religion and good morals are the only solid foundation of public liberty and happiness” (p, 19).

Samuel Adams

“The politician who loves liberty sees…a gulp [sic] that may swallow up the liberty to which he is devoted. He knows that morality overthrown (and morality must fall without religion) the terrors of despotism can alone curb the impetuous passions of man, and confine him within the bonds of social duty (p. 19).

 Alexander Hamilton

“Our country should be preserved from the dreadful evil of becoming enemies of the religion of the Gospel, which I have no doubt, but would be the introduction of the dissolution of government and the bonds of civil society” (p. 20).

Elias Boudinot

“Religion and Virtue are the only Foundations, not only of Republicanism and or all free Government, but of social felicity under all Governments and in all Combinations of human society” (20).

John Adams

“Reading, reflection, and time have convinced me that the interests of society require the observation of those moral precepts…in which all religions agree” (20).

Thomas Jefferson

“Religion is the only solid Base of morals and Morals are the only possible Support of free governments” (p. 20)

Gouvernent Morris

“The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments” (p. 20).

The following quote (Italics) are the words of Newt Gingrich, to be found on page 21 of his book:

“For the founders, it was abundantly clear. Religious liberty and freedom of religious expression would be indispensable supports for our democratic traditions of government and our pluralistic society. And so they have for over two hundred years.”

“It is important to recognize that the benefits of these supports accrue to people of not just one particular faith, but those of all faiths, and for all people of goodwill, whether religious, agnostic, atheist, or radical secularist. Likewise, the Founders clearly believed that the weakening of these religious supports—such as by the hostile treatment of religion in American public life—threatens to undermine the very republican institutions under which the religious and the non-religious alike find their liberties.”

I believe these assessments of the essential beneficial effects of religion on the health and viability of America’s miraculous Constitutional Republic to represent an abiding truth.
