Face of America

Protect Democracy and Our Way of Life

Principles Of Our Founding Fathers

I encourage you to use this LINK to learn more about this video.

It is sad that Americans have forgotten the values that the Founding Fathers had when they established the Constitution and populated this land for religious and political freedom.

We have been blessed greatly by what they did and by the sacrifices they made to develop this land and make it the great nation that it has been throughout the ages. However, America is NOT seen in as good of light as it used to be because we have forgotten GOD and why He is woven into the fabric of our Constitution and our way of life.

I hope we will all do our part in remembering the blessings we have enjoyed because of our faith and trust in God. I also hope that we will espouse those same values as the earlier settlers and that we will influence those in our circles of association to remember these things as well.

I welcome your comments.


Let me explain the reason I wrote this posting with the video. I received a comment from a reader who said my meaning was not clear. Let me clarify this for you.

I came across the video shown above and felt moved by the picture of Christ and the implication that He was behind the Constitution.

The video made me think about the Founding Fathers and how they believed they were guided by the Lord when they drew up the Constitution. Then I thought about how far we have moved from the original intent of the Founding Fathers and the ideals that were behind the writing of our laws and civil rights.

I realized how blessed we are to live in a nation that has been so rewarded with prosperity and International standing. These thoughts brought me to the realization that we are not as blessed as we used to be. Why? Because, at almost every turn, we are busily removing God from public view and forgetting the values that were purposely woven into the Constitution.

The idea of showing this video is to hopefully influence others to think about the same things depicted the painting and perhaps contemplate on how blessed we have been as a nation. We still can become a more blessed nation and improve our international standing when those who represent us in government move closer to the principles that once made this nation great.

I hope this explanation clarifies the reader’s question.

Congress And Their Devious Plan

Kerr County Republican Party If this is the mindset of one of the most powerful people in government, we need to get on our knees and pray for a clean sweep of the House in the November elections. After praying we then need to step forward and do our part to make sure it happens.

CNSNews.com – Pelosi: It’s Cheaper to Treat Teens for Drug Use Than Interdict Drugs at Border www.cnsnews.com – While pointing out that it is the responsibility of the federal government to secure the U.S.-Mexico border, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said Thursday it is cheaper to treat teens for drug …

I just don’t get it! These people in Washington have lost their common sense and so have we if we don’t see it. If we don’t do something about getting these people out of office then there is something wrong with our own thinking as well. I believe we are allowing political ideology to override our ability to think clearly right now.

It’s time to get back sanity in Washington. It may not be the Republican Party that will get it back, but if we don’t put Republicans in there and take back the House, then we shoot ourselves in the foot. Also, if we vote for an independent, then we each give a vote to Democrats like we did with Ross Perot. We cannot afford to give away our votes, especially when a vote counts so much right now.

The Democrats are working hard behind the scenes to stack the deck with democrat votes. They have plans to make Washington D.C. a state, which was emphatically barred by the Founding Fathers, because that will give them one more Democrat Senator and 6 Representative.

In addition to Washington D.C. Statehood, they are working right now to make Puerto Rico our 51st state, which will bring in about 4 million new voters who are known for voting Democrat. They also want to give convicted felons the right to vote so there is approximately another 4 million new votes who are known for voting Democrat. With close to 20 million illegal aliens in the United States right now, who are likely to vote Democrat, you can see why Politicians are bending over backwards to cater to that force of potential voters. All in all, their plans will bring in enough power to stay in office for the next twenty years.

The only thing that can stop these plans is for us to wake up and start telling Washington that we do not support their goals and that we will do everything in our power to thwart their plans.

Please start opening your mouth and tell people what you know about the Democratic Party’s plans and voice your opinion about it. We are all that stands between them and the security of this nation and protecting our families from drugs.

Government Controls the People

“The Founding Fathers knew a government can’t control the economy without controlling people. And they knew when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. So we have come to a time for choosing. Public servants say, always with the best of intentions, ‘What greater service we could render if only we had a little more money and a little more power.’ But the truth is that outside of its legitimate function, government does nothing as well or as economically as the private sector.” —Ronald Reagan

When government uses force and coercion to achieve its purpose, it means they are doing it against “The Will of The People.” In the past government proves to us that people rebel when they get pushed too far. This is the situation we have now, with TEA Parties popping up all over the country.

How do you feel about this comment?

Government should control the people and the economy to a point but then society needs to be responsible for its self. Communities and churches should be more involved and respond to the needs in their communities. That is what the “Founding Fathers” expect from us. They also expect us to defend our right to govern ourselves in most private matters.

Our form of government has the potential to become corrupt, that’s what can happen with freedom; the choice to be corrupt or honest, good or bad, controlling and evil or pervasive and good. Best intentions are admirable, but the things we should have done and did not is how we are remembered and what becomes our legacy.

We have been entrusted with the freedoms of future generations by how responsible we are now with our choices. When society becomes corrupt so do the representatives we send to Washington D.C. or the State Capital. We expect them to do what we elected them to do, but rarely do we follow their activities to see if that is what they are doing. We vote and then forget about our responsibility afterwards, and that our forefathers expect us to protect our liberties through our representatives.

We must be responsible for who we elect and continue to monitor their actions. If they become corrupt then we need to recall them through legal means. This is my charge to you, that you will continue to pay attention to those who serve us and be involved enough to help protect what we hold dear (that being our liberty).

300px-declaration_independence2 The choice to embrace God (or not to) and share our faith with others as a source of strength is the gift of freedom that the founding fathers fought to establish. I appreciate the right to share and exercise my faith, especially when I see the suffering of others who do not have this right. It is upon this foundation that the fabric of our Constitution is formed. brave souls have sacrificed a great deal to protect this right. I am forever indebted to all those who gave so much, enduring great difficulties and hardships to keep this freedom alive and strong for all of us to enjoy today. We cannot allow the tendency of a few (especially judges) to subvert the privilege of exercis-ing our faith. Of course, we let them do that when we will not stand up for ourselves. We can help protect this right by voting and by sending letters to our representatives. Part of our nation’s pledge, “One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all” means so much to most Americans. It reflects the many sacrifices made on our behalf. We must never forget what this pledge means to us who live in a land where all citizens can enjoy this freedom. We should respect and even revere their sacrifices. We need to remember the enormous price that paid for the freedom we now profit from, and that our future generations will benefit from as well. May God help us if we ever come to the point that we forget or show a blatant disregard for the significance of this pledge or, heaven forbid, we neglect to show an allegiance to the United States of America. This is why we must be united in protecting our freedom. Nevertheless, if we become neglectful or complacent about this right, I trust that somehow God will re-mind us of the price tag for this privilege.
