“this great nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians- – Patrick Henry
“I have now disposed of all my property to my family. There is one thing more I wish I could give them, and that is the Christian Religion.

After about five weeks dealing with strong heads, Benjamin Franklin, a Deist in his youth, delivered a compelling speech that is not included in most Text books concerning the framing of the Constitution at Independence Hall. The speech opened with Franklin identifying the reason for the poor progress. He related to the Men that there was a great deal lacking in human understanding. He implied an imperfection of man that required intervention of, “The Father of Lights to illuminate our understanding”.

He further reminded the men that all of them could remember that God had intervened on their behalves.
The other day we posted a video when Democrat said he was worried that Guam might capsize if there were too many people on the island. To be fair an balanced a GOP congressman can’t even recite the gist of Article 1 Section 1 of the Constitution. If you are a Democrat congressman like Phil Hare and say you don’t care about the constitution regarding health care that is one […]
President Lincoln emancipated Blacks and was partially responsible for 3 amendments to the Constitution, although they were ratified after his death. A Republican was the President when troops were sent to allow Blacks to attend a white school? To many peoples surprise, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and most of his family a member of the Republican party. It was southern Democrats who were the majority members of groups like the Klu Klux Klan.
The constitutional challenges to ObamaCare have come quickly, and the media are portraying them mostly as hopeless gestures—the political equivalent of Civil War re-enactors. Discussion over: You lost, deal with it.

In fact, the legal […]
