Mandatory Reading For All Americans

In this age of Internet, Facebook and Video idiots, all Americans should be required to actually read the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution and the Holy Bible.  As a former student and teacher of history, I am amazed whenever I read these documents.  The brilliance displayed by our Founding Fathers in these documents is truly incredible; though they made a few mistakes by not including term limits for members of Congress and a Balanced Budget Amendment.   However, for the most part, everything we need to know and do to govern our country is in the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution and the Holy Bible.

It is not necessary to "interpret" these documents.   Those who wrote them knew exactly what they meant by their words.  Government by the people and for the people was the intention of our Founding Fathers.   And, contrary to secularist B--L S--T, our Founding Fathers expressed a Judeo-Christian morality in their words and thoughts that is clear and the basis of our legal system.   Sadly over the years, Socialists and Republicans, including their judicial appointments, have done everything possible to erode the freedoms guaranteed us in the Bill of Rights. 

This is probably the reason Thomas Jefferson, who was the original author of the Declaration of Independence and our third President, often said that a Revolution every once and a while would probably be necessary to restore our freedom.  Jefferson clearly understood that self serving politicians and government bureaucrats, feeding at the trough, left to their own design, would do evil and that is exactly what we see happening today in the United States. 

Though our Founding Fathers would marvel at the nation that WE THE PEOPLE have built, often in spite of our elected leaders and the waste, fraud and abuse that exists at all levels of government, they would turn over in their graves because the Checks and Balances they put in place, to guarantee our freedoms, are gone.   President's issue thousands of Executive Orders to get around Congress and the will of the people.   The courts do not adhere to the Constitution; but instead simply make up laws that were never enacted by Congress.  Or, unelected judges strike down laws that were enacted by legislatures, or initiatives ignoring the will of the people.   There is something very wrong with this picture.   Our system of government is very broken because our Constitution is often intentionally disregarded and ignored. 

A simple read of the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution and the Holy Bible will demonstrate just how far we have moved away from the wisdom in these documents.   We see the end result as Big Brother government agencies attempt to control and monitor all aspects of our lives.   The Gestapo is all around us.  Our Founding Fathers fought a revolution to end the tyranny we face today.   Let us hope that it will not take another Revolution, to get our freedom back, as was suggested by Thomas Jefferson.  That would be a sad day in America.
