As Americans prepare to celebrate “Thanksgiving Day,” one has to wonder how many Americans will celebrate it for the purpose intended by America’s Founding Fathers.
The day is meant to give thanks to “Almighty God” for his blessings upon this land and our nation. America is a nation built, for the first time in world history, on the truth that all human beings are born with unalienable rights which come from God and the duty of the government is to defend those rights and “supply the defect of moral virtue” among the people.
As George Washington said on October 3, 1789:
“Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor – and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me ‘to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.'”
Today, America stands a great distance from our Foundation based on love of our fellow man and liberty for all.
But, liberty can only flourish in a society which encourages the Judeo-Christian principles of Love God and Love Neighbor. This is why at the time of the ratification of the U.S. Constitution and the first 10 Amendments, every state in the United States of America had in their state constitutions the requirement that every person must publicly confess their Christian faith before they could hold public office.
Yet today, unlike the time of 1607 to 1963, Bibles are not welcome in public schools. The statistical data from 1963 to today overwhelmingly indicates the detrimental effect this has on American society. Teen pregnancy, rape, murder, abortion, and other vile behavior has gone through the roof since 1963.
In today’s America, public schools teach the lie that Christianity must be kept out of schools instead of the truth that the government cannot, in any way, “prohibit the free exercise” of Christianity or other peaceful religions which do not infringe on other people’s unalienable rights.
In today’s America, Christian prayer is not allowed but teaching children the Islamic statement of faith (shahada) is.
In today’s America, a 17 year old (Kyle Rittenhouse), who worked as a janitor to help his family, can get arrested for standing at a car lot to defend a business from a violent mob, get attacked and told by his attackers they seek to kill him, yet have democrats/communists and the entire traditional media lie about it from beginning to end and call this young man’s acquittal evidence of “systemic white supremacy in America” – despite the fact the victims were white and felons and openly tried to kill him.
In today’s America, military generals can openly aid and abet enemies of the United States, call for a coup, and take actions which clearly constitute, at a minimum, criminal negligence, while facing no legal consequences, but be offered lucrative jobs in the private sector.
America is in a war. It is a war we are losing badly. The enemies of liberty control all the components of the federal governments, have significant influence at the state level, and control many of the mechanisms of power at the local level in cities across the nation from Nashville (TN) to Dallas (TX) to Kansas City (KS) to Charlottesville (VA) to Phoenix (AZ) and many others.
Yet, there is great hope.
Citizens who understand the nature of this war, the doctrine/networks/modus operandi of our enemies, and how to identify hostile actors in their local community, can crush these enemies and flush them out of their neighborhoods and counties when given the proper tools.
Simultaneously, it is critical to re-establish the republican form of government at the local level under the Founding Principles – The Law of Nature and The Law of Nature’s God – as legally defined at the time of our founding.
Make a decision this Thanksgiving to shed fear, be bold, and stand firm for the principles of liberty. Make a decision to risk everything for the sake this great experiment called America to give the next generation a chance at unbridled freedom and success.
Stand firm and do not surrender one more inch to those who wish to destroy the greatest vehicle for love and freedom the world has known.
