All nations establish themselves on a common set of morals, ethics, and a common World View. It cannot and has not been otherwise. History is repleate with failed nations that adopted an unworkable and eventually fatal set of values. Nations that prosper have values that prove to work. America's World View, Ethics, and Morals were openly stated by those who founded this country.
FROM: “The Glory of our Heritage” By David Barton
Patrick Henry -“It can not 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.”
John Quincy Adams - “The highest order of the American Revolution was that it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.”
"Our Constitution was made for a moral and and religious people, it is wholly inadequate to the Government of any other"
George Washington -“Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that a national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles.” “Do not let anyone claim to be a true American if they ever attempt to remove religion from politics.”
James Madison - (chief architect of the constitution) - “..we have staked the future of all of our
political Institutions upon the capacity of all of us to govern ourselves based upon the 10 Commandments of God.”
Charles Finney - (19th century lawyer and evangelist) - If God’s people do not make it into office, God’s Principles do not make it into office.”
Benjamin Franklin - ‘He who shall introduce into public affairs the principles of Christianity will change the face of the world..”
John Jay - (first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court) - Providence has given to our people the
choice of their rulers and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of a
Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”
Unite States Supreme Court–
(Church of the Holy Trinity vs. the United State - 1892)
“Our laws and our Institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teaching
of the redeemer of mankind. It is impossible for it to be otherwise, and, inthis sense,
and to this extent our institutions are emphatically Christian.”
(The Justices used 87 precedents to prove this case. The "separation of church and state" decision in 1948 had absolutely none.)
(Runkel vs. Winemiller - 1792)
“by our form of government, the Christian religion is the established religion...”
(Chief Justice John Jay , architect and signor of our 3of 4 founding documents and founder of the American Justice system presiding)
"Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster and what has happened once in 6,000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world." -- Daniel Webster 1782-1852
"The Republic will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not." Thomas Jefferson
"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." Benjamin Franklin
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it on the our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same." Ronald Reagan
"Pray as if it all depends on God, but act as if it all depends on you." Saint. Augustine, 354-430
"Duty is ours, Results are the Lord's" John Q. Adams
It is obvious from the National and State frameworks of government, from the laws passed and the writings of those who formed our Federal and State governments, not always perfect, but always following the same moral, ethical, and world view positions, that the United States of America is a nation irrevocably based on the Judeo-Christian bible and it's teachings and beliefs. The failure of this society has only been seen when those values, ethics, and world view have been subverted and/ or abandoned. Therefore it is, by requirement of survival, that they be restored and that those officials who depart from them in official action be removed from office in any lawful way possible. If government will not, he people were given that authority by our Founders in law.
"We can't turn back! We're blazing a trail that started in England. Not even the storms of the sea could turn back the first settlers. And they carried it on further. They blazed it on through the wilderness of Kentucky. Famine, hunger, not even massacres could stop them. And now we picked up the trail again. And nothing can stop us! Not even the snows of winter, nor the peaks of the highest mountain. We're building a nation and we got to suffer! No great trail was ever built without hardship. And you got to fight! That's right. And when you stop fighting, that's death. What are you going to do, lay down and die? Not in a thousand years! You're going on with me!" Breck Coleman in "The Big Trail" (1930) John Wayne
"Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words give you a feeling. Republic is one of those words that makes me tight in the throat — the same tightness a man gets when his baby takes his first step or his first baby shaves and makes his first sound as a man. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words." Col. Davy Crocket - the Alamo
So - How did we get here today ??

In 1838, Horace Mann became the Secretary of the Massachusetts Board of Education. Mann promoted a philosophy of education that was diametrically opposed to that of the Founding Fathers generation. He is known as the father of the public school movement.
1. He supported forced taxation for state schools, undermining parental control and detrimental to private schools.
2. Mann, and those who followed him, illegally de-emphasized the Biblical doctrine of salvation as the basis of character development, replacing it with the optimistic, humanistic view of the perfectibility of man through education and environment.
3. He encouraged group thinking and study rather than individual initiative and creativity.
4. He standardized teacher training, textbooks, and accreditation beginning the transition away from the principles of the Christian philosophy of education taught by the great founder of American educational system, Noah Webster.
In this year a group of prominent American Marxists, atheists, and socialists met to determine how the failure of he last century to remove the Christian World View as the official government world view could be accomplished in the next century. In the 1800s all attempts to remove the Christian underpinnings of our government had failed because the education of the that era was Christian based by law and all leaders of those days were schooled in the Christian foundation and world view as law for our government. The solution, it was determined, was to take over the teaching of education, law, and other schools teaching the teachers and subvert the education of the youth into secularism. Thus the next generation of leaders would not know of the Christian basis for America. This was instituted and became successful. This group became an organization - The National Education Association.
September 12, 1905
On this date in the loft above Peck's restaurant at 140 Flton Street, lower Manhattan, a group of yourng men met to plan the overthrow of the predominantly Christian world-view that still pervaded America. At this first meeting five men were present: Upton Sinclair, 27, a writer and socialist; Jack London, writer, Thomas Wentworth Higginson, a Unitarian minister; J.G Phelps Stokes, husband of a socialist leader, and Clarence Darrow, a lawyer ( representing anti-American individuals and causes later became famous defending the teacher that forced Darwinism, otherwise known as evolution , into public schools). Their organization was called the Intercollegiate Socialist Society. Their purpose was to "promote and intelligent interest in socialism among college men and women." These men were ready to become the exponents of an idea passed on to them by an obscure writer named Karl Marx. Although a small group in the beginning, these adherents of socialism more than succeeded in their task. In only 30 years, the ideas of this small group became the dominant philosophy in America's educational institutions and then it's political structure.
With the subverting of the legal schools educational objectives and thus it's judiciary, in this year the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in 3 decisions removing all Christian World view education out of the public schools. These decisions had no basis in law but were nevertheless instituted. 500 years of Christian educational law and doctrine were thrown out resulting in massive destruction of society in the years following. That destruction can be illustrated on the charts and graphs page of this website.
All of this information can and should be used to counter the secular claims of dominance of that world view as law in the United States of America.
President Calvin Coolidge stated at the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, Philadelphia, July 5, 1926: “The principles … which went into the Declaration of Independence … are found in … the sermons … of the early colonial clergy who were earnestly undertaking to instruct their congregations in the great mystery of how to live. They preached equality because they believed in the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. They justified freedom by the text that we are all created in the divine image. … Placing every man on a plane where he acknowledged no superiors, where no one possessed any right to rule over him, he must inevitably choose his own rulers through a system of self-government. …
CHARLES CAROLL - THE LAST SURVIVING SIGNATOR OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDANCE - HIS THOUGHTS.
Charles Carroll, who was a member of a society to end slavery, wrote to Robert Goodloe, April 23, 1820: “Why keep alive the question of slavery? It is admitted by all to be a great evil.”
On Sept. 27, 1825, in a letter to Charles W. Wharton, Esq., written from Doughoragen, Maryland, Charles Carroll stated: “On the mercy of my Redeemer I rely for salvation and on His merits not on the works I have done in obedience to His precepts.”
After John Adams and Thomas Jefferson died on July 4, 1826, Charles Carroll remained the last surviving signer of the Declaration of Independence. The city of New York sent a committee to Charles Carroll to get his final comments on the Declaration, which he wrote on August 2, 1826: “Grateful to Almighty God for the blessings which, through Jesus Christ Our Lord, He had conferred on my beloved country in her emancipation and on myself in permitting me, under circumstances of mercy, to live to the age of 89 years, and to survive the fiftieth year of independence, adopted by Congress on the 4th of July 1776, which I originally subscribed on the 2d day of August of the same year and of which I am now the last surviving signer, I do hereby recommend to the present and future generations the principles of that important document as the best earthly inheritance their ancestors could bequeath to them, and pray that the civil and religious liberties they have secured to my country may be perpetuated to remotest posterity and extended to the whole family of man.”
