"The fundamental basis of this nation's laws was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don't think we emphasize that enough these days. If we don't have a proper fundamental moral background, we will finally end up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in the rights for anybody except the State". - President Harry S. Truman, Attorney General's Conference, 1950

Constitution Day Website

Our ancestors established their system of government on morality and religious sentiment. Moral habits, they believed, cannot safely been trusted on any other foundation than religious principle, not any government secure which is not supported by moral habits... Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens." -Daniel Webster

Memorial Day When Can Their Glory Fade

The moral principles and precepts contained in the Scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitution and laws. All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery and war proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible." -Noah Webster (author 'An American Dictionary of the English Language' 1828)

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible" - George Washington, 1st President of the United States

Prayer of President George Washington
on June 8, 1783
1:14Play On-Line

"God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is Just; that His justice cannot sleep forever." - Thomas Jefferson, 1781 (Engraved on the Jefferson Memorial)

July 4, 1776 to July 4, 2022

Blessed of God to be Free! 246 Years!!

These Colors Won't Run - Remember Pearl Harbor

There is a needed change in the thinking of manyAmericans (Black and White). How can we hold our handsto our hearts, pledge our lives to a country and to a set of laws that contains the phrase "That all Men are created Equal" and yet look down on people based on the color of their skin or the land of their birth? How can people who have been so treated still follow hate-mongerswho claim to be 'reverend' but only want to keep the race-divide alive for their own political and financial gain? Who want to keep their people as slaves to a government with 'free-stuff' just to keep the power.

This movement still has a long way to go. May this dream someday be seen by all.

MLK Memorial
Be sure to ignore the fact that the MLK Memorial
in Washington D.C. was made in Communist China by
the Designer, Communist Lei Yixin, a sculptor of
the People's Republic of China with stone from
Greece and installed in Washington D.C.
by Communist Chinese Workers. Also ignore the fact
that a certain senator-turned-president (in 2008)
from Chicago approved of this contract.

"Our government rests upon religion. It is from that source that we derive our reverence for truth and justice, for equality and liberty, and for the rights of mankind. Unless the people believe in these principles they cannot believe in our government." - President Calvin Coolidge, October 15, 1924

"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ! For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here." - Patrick Henry
