Freedom requires personal responsibility, communism seeks to destroy it.... David Risselada
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
The above quote was made by John Adams on October 11, 1798 while addressing the Massachusetts Militia. This statement holds a great deal of significance because it not only alludes to the fact that our nation was founded upon Judea Christian Principles, it clearly indicates that failure to live up to them, would signify the end of the Constitution. The fact that The United States was founded as a Christian nation has been the subject of intense political and social debate throughout the past one hundred years as progressives (communists) have sought to change the structural fabric that holds our society together. Our founding fathers had the wisdom, experience and insight to see that the common people needed protection from governments whose sole philosophy on governing placed them, and them alone above all else. This was the reason our Constitution was written, to protect the rights of the people while keeping government in its proper place, as servants and protectors of those rights, not grantors. We were to be employers of government, not employees; government exists at the will of the people and their purpose is to serve, not to rule.
