Failing To Enculturate America’s Children

Failing To Enculturate America’s Children

Our critical  failure has been to not thoroughly enculturate our children in the historical moral and ethical foundations of America. If one wonders why our  finest population behaviors are fading away, they need not wonder anymore.

We have simply failed to transmit them to our future.

“Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country.” –Noah Webster, On the Education of Youth in America, 1788

Look To His/Her Character!

Look To His/Her Character!

It is essential to monitor the ethical behavior of all of our public officials preceding the electoral process, throughout the electoral process, and during their time of service to our Nation. Unethical behavior should not lead to verbal chastisement or censure, it should lead to the end of political service.

In our selfishness, we have failed to do this. We must be willing to give-up the spoils that we receive from our corrupted public servants to save America.

What will it benefit us to gain a bridge, a road, or a financial grant when all of America dies as a result?

“I Advise The Gun”–Thomas Jefferson

“I Advise The Gun”–Thomas Jefferson

The following is a quote from the Founders Quote Daily

I have encountered this quote from Thomas Jefferson numerous times in my various readings–and I like it.  In my view the Second Amendment is a cornerstone of our freedom.  Therefore, I am please to present it to you on my blog.

V. Thomas Mawhinney, 12/15/09


“A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.” –Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, 1785


Another quote from Founders Quote Daily that relates more directly to the Second Amendmant is the following:

Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.” –Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, 1787
