“It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood” James Madison

“The Constitution preserves the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation where the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”    James Madison

“Democracy… while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy of monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.” John Adams

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” John Adams

“Work as if you were to live a hundred years. Pray as if you were to die tomorrow.” Benjamin Franklin

“Rebellion against tyrants is obedience to God.” Benjamin Franklin

The Clash of the GIANTS!!! We Must Understand! (via blogsense-by-barb)

The Clash of the GIANTS!!! We Must Understand! As I see it, there are three major global systems, three GIANTS, at play on our current stage. They are all old and well-steeped in cultural tradition among those who adhere to them. They incorporate all facets of life, from family to politics, from education to religion. The tenets of these systems are "bred" into individuals, passed down from generation to generation. The fact that these systems cover all areas of life make them extraordinarily … Read More

How Much American History do You Remember? (via blogsense-by-barb)

How Much American History do You Remember? I often hear in the media today that America has never been an truly Christian nation, and that those who presume so are deceived. Well … the evidence indicates to the contrary. OUR AMERICAN ROOTS: Many have recently argued that our beginnings were not essentially Christian. I suppose that depends on your definition of Christian, but the central focus, and the source of strength, wisdom, and consolation in the early American settlements was the … Read More

Does the USA Still have a Legal North Star? (via blogsense-by-barb)

Does the USA Still have a Legal North Star? "Without justice being freely, fully, and impartially administered, neither our persons, nor our rights, nor our property, can be protected. And if these, or either of them, are regulated by no certain laws, and are subject to no certain principles, and are held by no certain tenure, and are redressed, when violated, by no certain remedies, society fails of all its value; and men may as well return to a state of savage and barbarous independence. … Read More
