America, I believe, is at a crossroads. Will its people return to the principles upon which the Republic was originally founded? If we attempt to do so, we must know we will have a monumental fight on our hands. There has been too much secular “water under the bridge” for it to be otherwise. The secularists effectively control the media and the educational establishment, two extremely powerful propaganda tools. Unencumbered by the moral absolutes upon which this nation was originally founded, the State has gotten used to throwing its weight around. The old “give ‘em an inch and they’ll take a mile” adage is most à propos when it comes to the State. Instead of viewing the public school system as an adjunct of the Home and, thus, something to which it simply lends its support, it is now viewed as an entity belonging to the State and an effective tool for the distribution of its propaganda. As such, God, along with anything that could be construed as being Judeo-Christian, has been expunged from the public school curriculum. Textbooks which purport to teach early American history do no such thing, as “Nature and Nature’s God” are either diminished or else completely ignored. The “Western Civ. has got to go” rebels of the 1960s have all grown up and are fully in control of the State’s primary propaganda machine.
Before it’s too late (and it already may be), let us determine, no matter what the cost, to return to our roots. Let us resolve to exercise the rights our Creator granted us—rights the State, under God, is duty-bound to protect. If we are willing to stand up and speak out on these very fundamental things, then perhaps those who come after us will be blessed by our efforts just as we decidedly were by those who put everything on the line to give us a unique form of government built on the solid foundation of God’s eternal and self-evident truths. Like them, and “with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence,” let us “mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”
