A plea from a member of the Great Generation,
citing the Good Book
for a vital cause
Today we need strong – charactered individuals with Godly wisdom who are able to guide, encourage, and motivate us to be all we can be. Then together, we will solve our problems. We must not accept second best! It’s a new day. We can change laws, courts, institutions and America. Our battle cry is…
“United We Stand; In God We Trust.”
True Freedom … is the right to act, be, think, say and feel as you wish, as long as what you do, does not infringe upon the rights of another or the majority rule.
- Freedom with discipline: PERMITS INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL.
- Rights without discipline: PRODUCE CRIME AND CHAOS.
- Crime without serious punishment: RESULTS IN THE LOSS OF FREEDOM FOR ALL.
Quotations from the Founding Fathers of the United States of America
MEMBER OF THE CONTINENTAL CONGRESS; COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OF THE CONTINENTAL ARMY; FIRST PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES; “FATHER OF HIS COUNTRY”
“You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ. These will make you a greater and happier people than you are…While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian.”
John Quincy Adams
SIXTH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
“In the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior. The Declaration of Independence laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity.”
SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION; GOVERNOR OF PENNSYLVANIA
“As to Jesus of Nazareth, my opinion of whom you particularly desire, I think the system of morals and His religion as He left them to us, the best the world ever saw or is likely to see.”
SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE; THIRD PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
“The doctrines of Jesus are simple, and tend all to the happiness of man…The practice of morality being necessary for the well being of society, He [God] has taken care to impress its precepts so indelibly on our hearts that they shall not be effaced by the subtleties of our brain. We all agree in the obligation of the moral principles of Jesus and nowhere will they be found delivered in greater purity than in His discourses.”
SIGNER OF THE CONSTITUTION; FRAMER OF THE BILL OF RIGHTS; FOURTH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
“I have sometimes thought there could not be a stronger testimony in favor of religion or against temporal enjoyments, even the most rational and manly, than for men who occupy the most honorable and gainful departments and [who] are rising in reputation and wealth, publicly to declare their unsatisfactoriness by becoming fervent advocates in the cause of Christ; and I wish you may give in your evidence in this way.”
Congress, U. S. House Judiciary Committee, 1854
“Had the people, during the Revolution, had a suspicion of any attempt to war against Christianity, that Revolution would have been strangled in its cradle… In this age, there can be no substitute for Christianity… That was the religion of the founders of the republic and they expected it to remain the religion of their descendants.”

Freedom or Servitude?
The question is … are we going to stand up for what we believe, or are we going to continue living for ourselves, while others steal our freedoms from us? Throughout history when the majority has gone to sleep, the minority has stolen not only the freedoms, but the creativity and prosperity of a nation as well.
What will it take for you to make a firm decision to stand up and fight for what you believe? Perhaps you need more information before you choose your pathway for the future. This book [Common Sense] may help you understand the issues and make that decision.
