‘We are under tremendous attacks…by Communists who…state that capitalism – democracy – carries…the seeds of its own destruction’- Eisenhower

By Bill Federer
“We are under tremendous attacks…We are attacked by the Communists who in their own documents state that capitalism – democracy – carries within itself the seeds of its own destruction,”

stated President Dwight Eisenhower.

Continuing his address, NOVEMBER 9, 1954, to the National Conference on the Spiritual Foundation of American Democracy at the Sheraton-Carlton Hotel, Washington, DC, President Eisenhower stated:

“We are talking about the spiritual foundations of our form of government…

Now Dr. Lowry said something about my having certain convictions as to a God in Heaven and an Almighty power.

Well, I don’t think anyone needs a great deal of credit for believing in what seems to me to be obvious…

It seems to me that this relationship between a spiritual faith, a religious faith, and our form of government is so closely defined and so obvious that we should really not need to identify a man as unusual because he recognizes it…”


Eisenhower added:

“Milton asserted that all men are born equal, because each is born in the image of his God.

Our whole theory of government finally expressed in our Declaration…give the reasons to mankind why we had established such a government: ‘Man is endowed by his Creator…’

No matter what Democracy tries to do in terms of maximum individual liberty…in the economic…in the intellectual…in providing a system of justice, and a system of responsibility…when you come back to it, there is just one thing…man is worthwhile because he was born in the image of his God.”


Eisenhower concluded:

“The challenges of today…are…because…our spiritual convictions as to the worth-whileness of this form of government, weakens…

Democracy is nothing in the world but a spiritual conviction, a conviction that each of us is enormously valuable, because of a certain standing before our own God.

Now, any group that binds itself together to awaken all of us to these simple things…is, in my mind, a dedicated, patriotic group that can well take the Bible in one hand and the a flag in the other, and march ahead.”

On NOVEMBER 9, 1940, President Franklin D Roosevelt prayed:

“In a year which has seen calamity and sorrow fall upon many peoples elsewhere in the world may we give thanks for our preservation…


Almighty God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage;

We humbly beseech Thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of Thy favor and glad to do Thy will…

Save us from violence, discord, and confusion…

Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues.


Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in Thy Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through obedience to Thy law, we may show forth Thy praise among the nations of the earth…

In the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in Thee to fail; Amen.”

A Few Words from Our Founders

James Madison, Hamilton’s major collaborator, later President of the United States and “Father of the Constitution” (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

“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

Obituary - Very Interesting Via my cousin Oliver In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinborough, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior: "A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.. From that mom … Read More

ATTENTION all Korean and Vietnam War Veterans! (via Voting American)

The arrogance of the Obama administration and the Democrats is leading to the destruction of this country. They are spending their time and our precious resources to aid our enemies, betray our allies, lower our defenses, and bankrupt our country. We have had enough! The last few years have been enough time for the ignorant of leaders to understand that the people of the country that he purports to lead, do not like the direction that he is going. Most, who cared about the country would be wise enough to change the direction. Barack Obama is neither wise, nor cares about this country. He seems determined to destroy it. Therefore, we the people of this wonderful country, reserve the right to use any means within the Constitution of this Republic, to restore the freedoms and laws that are our rights, not from government, but from God!

ATTENTION all Korean and Vietnam War Veterans! AMERICA‘S  GOT  TROUBLE You fought bravely and sacrificed much to stop the expansion of Communism in South East Asia. How can it be that we find ourselves fighting it once more and this time, In Our Own Country! How is it that we missed all the warning signs and ignored those who tried to warn us of what was happening in Our America? From Paul Revere to President Ronald Reagan there have always been Great Patriots who stood tall to warn us. [yout … Read More

The Obama Democrats: Tax and Spend Inc. (via Voting American)

The Obama Democrats: Tax and Spend Inc. Just when you think you may have seen it all the Liberals Amp Up the Rhetoric on taxing the Rich to save the Poor.  I guess that is the only solution they have been able to come with thus far.  Two and a half years into Obama‘s only term and unemployment is still way too high at 9.1%. Gee…  I wonder what is going to happen with rising gas prices  and hyper inflation on the way?  Oh wait….I know….. he will blame Bush!   It is all getting so old. T … Read More
