Many people today seem to be impressed that the Constitution is so old, yet so well planned out and perfectly able to be applied to the age of today. Others seem to think that our forefathers were traitors to their country, had no way of knowing what today would be like, and that the Constitution is out dated. This amazes me due to the amount of arrogance one must posses in order to entertain this latter idea. Most elitists seem to think they are more educated, thus they just know more about what is best for us. In dealing with the issue of God in the public spectrum and the phrase “under God” in our pledge, I have heard them debate history. Arguments are made about the intent of our Colonial Patriots.
Let me please just clear a few things up here. Our forefathers knew EXACTLY what they were doing. They knew what they were fighting against, what they were trying to accomplish, and they fully understood the nature of man. How could they have known so much? How could they have possibly created a blueprint for a government that would inspire its people to defend to the death, become the lighthouse to the poor and suffering in the rest of the world, and would withstand the test of time? The answer is actually quite simple. They knew what would work in the future by understanding the events of history.
These wise men were well versed in history. They were very well educated on the issue of government and understood the evils of government. These men were honest, hard working men with a dream of creating a land based on the perfect design of what God intended for us. Fighting against the natural design of the world never works. It will never bring about peace or true happiness. This is why you see the left so frustrated right now and coming apart at the seams. Try as they might; they will never be able to change the divine laws of earth and mankind.
Elitists, such as those in academia, would have you believe that their education leaves them “in the know.” They sit in their nests of “safe idea exchange” and preach to others about our ignorance. In reality, they are the ones lacking. Before the Declaration of Independence was ever signed, the case for independence was being made. The case was based on the fight against tyranny, the firm belief in freedom of religion, and the fact that all of men’s homage paid to royalty and prestige was ridiculous. The real answers are found within the ache in the heart for freedom, the unshakable belief in faith and hope, and the honest admission that the key to everything in life lies in using COMMON SENSE!
I invite you to take some time out today, or sometime this week, to read Common Sense by Thomas Paine. Once you read this you will realize just how wise our forefathers were. Common Sense was written in order to lay out the case for a revolution to those not as “educated” as the Colonial elites, i.e. the common man. You’ll find that these men truly “got it.” The case is based on example after example of where people in history went wrong. Where they denied the entire foundation of what God intended for us, and every time it lead to disaster. As the left tries to infer that the “Christian” right is interested in shoving OUR religion down everyone else’s throat, they totally miss the point and INTENT of our stand on the issues of government. We may not be able to verbally express it well at times (amidst the labels of bigot, nazi's etc.), but after reading Common Sense, I believe this may change for us. We Christians are not interested in forcing anyone to live by our own personal standards. We are very interested in creating a society that is safe for the prosperity of society. Prosperity is never found in denying reality. We were never interested in sending the government into anyone’s bedroom; we were merely interested in not having anyone’s bedroom dragged into the street. Do what you want in your bedroom, as long as it is among consenting adults. But don’t lug your bed onto Main Street America and expect everyone in America to applaud. We are not interested in handing out free automatic weapons to lunatics, thieves, and gangs. We are interested providing each law abiding individual with the means to protect itself against tyranny; weather that tyranny comes in the shape of terrorists, government, or a night time intruder. We are not interested in propping up a state Church and forcing everyone to attend mass on Sunday and imprison dissenters. We are interested in never losing sight that this nation was founded on the principles and lessons learned in history through Judeo/Christian laws.
Thomas Paine got it right. Living in the most prosperous and glorious nation ever known to man is proof of this. No temper tantrum the leftist kooks can throw will ever change the fact that they are just wrong when it comes to what is best for this country, and what our forefathers intended and envisioned. I can’t imagine their horror if the men who designed and birthed this great nation could visit today, the nation they created. The left is constantly whining about us claiming they are unpatriotic or un-American. Instead of complaining about it, try asking yourselves why we say it. We say it because we believe it. One trip to Planned Parenthood would send the architects of our freedom straight into the Republican camp with a vengeance.
