Tuesday, July 28, 2009


Yesterday, July 27, 2009, was a day many of us have looked toward for a number of weeks; perhaps even months.

Governor Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) awakened on her first morning as Citizen Sarah Palin, Constitutionalist, Federalist, Patriot and American Freedom Fighter from Alaska.

This is indeed the day Conservatives in America got a new, dedicated and determined voice to speak up for us with no worries about who would attack her from which venue. The point is, it doesn’t really matter now. Sarah Palin can speak up for herself now.

File a charge against Citizen Sarah Palin, and she can fight back in the media just as you broke the law to do as well. Accuse her of wearing a jacket outdoors in cold Alaska, and she can tell you to go cut a hole in the ice and go fishing.

Tell her she shouldn’t be holding that fish, and she can tell you which lake she would have caught it from if she hadn’t been too busy being your governor to go fishing herself.

Tell her she shouldn’t leave the state for 24 hours after the State lawmakers have taken a week off to go to Washington, D.C., and she can tell you where she’ll be when she gets back for you to take your best shot. After you pick yourself up off the floor, you can look at her and softly say, “Did you have a nice time while you were away?”

No more Mrs. Nice Lady. The gloves can come off now. You know as well as I do that your time of blatant jealousy because she’s intelligent, beautiful, successful, devoted to her family and still in love with her husband has run its course; you can no longer accuse her of the first thing that comes to your mind just to continue wasting Alaska taxpayer money and Sarah Palin’s personal money as well.

A deep love for America, and a sincere desire to see our country returned to the basic principles upon which it was founded; religious, personal and self-governing freedoms. These are the ideas of Conservatism. We strive to repair the damage done, in our view, by the liberal force in America as a result of removing God from our society.

The liberal forces, the atheists, the socialists and the ruling elitists have had their day. It’s time for them to move on as well. A REAL Conservative voice will be leading a national force of what you formerly called “the silent majority” as we fight with the only weapons we need against you and your continued ruination of America. Her words and our votes in the next election will soon be waving at you from your own bridge to nowhere.

Our singular goal will be to return America to the greatness she once knew. We will defeat tyranny and injustice instead of allowing it to overtake us. I don’t know which of your “trusted institutions” will be the first to go, but I can assure you, before Sarah Palin and the Conservatives in America are finished, you will all be looking for a big rock to hide your shame, embarrassment and hatred for our nation.

Many years ago, we had a phrase we used to describe this feeling of Patriotism: “America. Love it or Leave it.” You remember that I’m sure. Just in case you don’t, you’re going to hear a lot of it from now on so that you can be reminded of what it means to live and enjoy the American freedoms men and women since the Revolutionary War have fought and died to provide for you.

If I have my way, the first of your institutions to go will be your atheistic church of self. Since you are obviously unfamiliar with exactly what the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States says, allow me to refresh your memory.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Just a few words that take so little space yet say so much.

The argument of the separation of church and state as misinterpreted by many of today’s lawmakers and citizens is not found anywhere in the American Constitution. Given the context of this writing, the reference is, in simplified form, to a “Church of the United States” that would exist as the “American Church of Choice” in the same manner as “The Church of England” was in the country from which they had declared independence and won the freedom to govern this new nation. Instead of separating the church and the state, it separates the state and the church.

It was never the intention of our Constitution to wed the two inseparably. Instead the document was providing for the religious freedom of all citizens to believe or to not believe; not to follow a national religion which by implication carries the unspoken threat “or else”.

Our Founding Fathers held this view. First President of the United States, and the man considered “The Father of America,” George Washington, said, “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.”

In his farewell address to the nation on September 19, 1796, President George Washington remarked, "Let it simply be asked where is the security for prosperity, for reputation, for life; if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths, which are the instruments of investigation in the Courts of Justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition, that morality can be maintained without religion."

John Adams, America’s second President, is quoted in an address to the military on October 11, 1798, "Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people, it is wholly inadequate for the governing of any other."

With excerpts engraved on the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C. taken from his “Query XVIII of Notes on the State of Virginia in 1781, Thomas Jefferson, third President of the United States remarked, "God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God?"

"We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all of our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government; upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God." These words are attributed to James Madison, considered the Chief Architect of the US Constitution and fourth President of the U.S. [Attributed (1778) -- Gary DeMar, God and Government - A Biblical and Historical Study (Atlanta, GA: American Vision Press, 1982); Benjamin Hart, Faith & Freedom - The Christian Roots of American Liberty (Dallas, TX: Lewis and Stanley, 1988), p. 18; David Barton, The Myth of Separation (Aledo, TX: Wallbuilder Press, 1991), p. 120]

Patrick Henry, orator and Statesman, was a member of the Continental Congress and a five-time Governor of the state of Virginia. He is probably most recognized by this famous quote from March 23, 1775: “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!"

Henry also said, “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here." [Attributed -- Steve C. Dawson, God's Providence in America's History (Rancho Cordova, CA: Steve C. Dawson, 1988), Vol. I, p. 5.; David Barton, The Myth of Separation (Aledo, TX: Wallbuilder Press, 1991), pp. 25, 158. M. E. Bradford, The Trumpet Voice of Freedom: Patrick Henry of Virginia (Marlborough, NH: Plymouth Rock Foundation, 1991), p. iii.]

These are the words, the thoughts, the ideals, and the beliefs of our Founding Fathers. If our nation is to be returned to its full status as “The Greatest Nation on Earth”, we must return to the intentions of those who paved the way of Freedom for all of us in America. We must return God to His rightful place in our society. We must strive to restore the dedication of these great men within ourselves to fight for the America we love and the God who provided it.
