“Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” — John Adams.
Our founding fathers were devout Christians, the precepts and hallmarks of our Constitutional Republic reflect our Christian values and standards... if you want to be an atheist, agnostic, or hedonist you must understand that our government was established on Judeo/Christian precepts and can not function properly without them.
Alexis de Tocqueville’s observation that “[l]iberty cannot be established without morality, nor morality without faith" was noted as the corner stone of America's greatness by Tocqueville... and that which separated us from the fallen governments of Europe. For, hundreds of years, the Natural Law and morality formed the foundation for our claim to certain unalienable rights, they were the source of our laws, and standards for social interaction and justice...
That has all changed. Today, People and governments see how far they can push the boundaries of good behavior and power without incurring rebellion or violence... For decades now, governments have adopted President Obama’s slogan of “Yes We Can”!Can we establish an entire branch of government dedicated to education even though there is no Constitutional grant of authority to do it? Yes We Can! We fight several undeclared wars lasting many years killing thousands, we create an entire dependent population thru social welfare programs none of which are Constitutional.
It is time we returned to our founding fathers faith and constitutional government... reorganizing and limiting the Federal Govrnments scope and power to those enumerated powers in the Constitution... and no more. We must also restrict the Courts from using Stari Decisis and the courts judgments as LAW... they are not law, they are the Courts rendering of justice in a particular case and only that case.
My point exactly... adolescent behavior adds noting to the debate... it in fact detracts and drives many away.
I remember one of your statements, sound like something Glenn Beck stated about Amazon, we should make the best of the issues, really, do ya really think Americans are made that way?
They do not care about your Constitutional Faith
America was built upon a foundation of faith... our forefathers left the known world for the unkown. Placing their faith in the providence of God, too bring them thru the coming trials and tribulations in a new world. They hazarded life and limb to conquer the wilderness and harnessed it; making it one of the greatest nations ever assembled by mankind.
It is this new generation that has lost their faith... not needing faith, they live off the heritage and wealth of their forefathers. However, this is about to end, and in the coming years they will face great challenges without faith or hope to guide them. They are a generation of fools, whose skill set consists of surfing the web, shooting up, and ridiculing their parents long held faith.
Woe, I say woe, unto this perverse and wicked genertion... for they have sown to the wind and will now reap the whirlwind. They have abandoned the hallmarks and cornerstones of their faith, sold their birthright for a bowl of porridge, too appease their insatiable appetite for debauchery. They have altogether gone astray.
Excuse me, let Glen Beck speak for Glen and my post for themselves... And, yes one should make the best out of any situation they find themselves, as opposed to accepting the worst...
Does the mean we should suffer evil without resistance.. God forbid. However, it doesn't mean we should go off half-cocked looking for a fight we are not ready to undertake. Of course, should the fight or criciss arrive without warning or time to prepare... we need to meet it head on... relying on our faith and God... to provide a way where there seems to no way.
This is the deal Ronald, my little UN Treaty with you, if you continue to make statements to my friends like this,
My comments to Roeie were civil and appropriate for the situation...
However, threats and resorting to vulgar language while attempting to express ones ire, serves only to exacerbate the situation... Try to be more diplomatic and civil when addressing what you see as abusive conduct. Constructive criticisim is best offered in a civil manner...
Have a great day and a better tomorrow.
I had a talk with Tif, she offered you a treaty, I looked over this blog, I disagree that your statement was politically correct.
People are entitled to opinions, I did notice that Rosie, did not return the comment back at you in the same disrespect, that is a observation.
Constructive criticism is best offered in a civil manner, Mr. Nelson, criticism according to her,'Rosie's, school, I do not under stand that as constructive criticism .
Tif offered peace, it should be respected, so that we can work together to apply efforts to pressure this system to respect Constitutional Laws, and the right to life.
My comments regarding Rosie's research techniques and the College she attends... were meant to draw attention to the fact that many of our institutions of higher education are woefully inadequate. They are failing to instruct our children on how to conduct quality research; while, applying critical thinking skills to arrive at sound conclusions. It would behove every parent and College Student to examine the quality of education they are receiving and paying for... and where it is inadequate, too consider changing institutions..
The quality of research and posts being made by several prominent indivudals on this site lacks serious scholarship and applied critical thinking... It is time that they are informed of these deficits in their posts and where possible assisted to develop quality research techniques and standards... Thus, improving their posts and contribution to the members of this site.
Like many here I am married and have no interests in pursuing a relationship outside of the 50yrs I have spent with my wife. I am also appaled at the liberty our youth take with seniors today and the disgusting disrespect they pay to their eleders... such a suggestive and nasty caricature would never be interjected when addressing Seniors in my generation... It was this sort of conduct that brought Marxism to much of the world.
The idea that students rise up in open protest at Universities, disrupting classes and denegrating the authority of their instructors is also amazing. Political protests have no place in the class rooms of America ... and students who show such open disregard for authority are a danger to themselves and the future of America....
There are PROPER ways to express ones ire over the ciriculum, or a particular instructors methods of instruction, and they don't start with anarchy in the class room. Just a little foot note on why I addressed Rosie's school... she interjected her educactional experiences into several of our exchanges.
What I do not understand Mr. Nelson, is when Tif posted harry man boobs it was funny, if I post harry man boobs, Jean said I snap shot the image or something like that.
