Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of freedom. - John Adams
In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress. - John Adams
We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other. - John Adams
Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence. - John Adams
Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There was never a democracy that did not commit suicide. - John Adams
I think it always prudent to look back at how our freedoms were forged in times where future choices about our nation are at hand. Studying about American history and the great sacrifices that were made to give us liberty is just what the doctor ordered during elections. Our family rented this wonderful HBO series last night and watched half of it. As I suspected, I did shed some tears. I wish the people of this nation still had the same ideals they once did. I find it totally sad that most Americans don't even know who John Adams was. I hope you will rent this great flick for your homeschool brood and share the legacy of a free country with them. What a treasure we have been given. I pray we will tread lightly and "appeal to heaven" for this next phase we are about to enter. I pray that we are still one Nation UNDER GOD when the counting stops in November. Where is George Washington when you need him?
Stop in at yesterday's post and read the comments. Leave one yourself if you like. I'm enjoying the discussion. I would highly suggest (especially if you are a homeschooler or a parent) reading my brief run-down of the "Convention of the Rights of a Child" (UN Treaty). I broke it down after reading the entire thing and posted the parts that disturb me greatly. I also wrote some commentary there to explain what is so offensive about it. I'm not going to post it in here because I'm done with politics. I'm soon to go to the polls and cast my vote here in Texas for early voting if I haven't missed the window.
I hope you'll have a super weekend filled with autumn goodness despite the cold and gloomy political cloud hovering over American skies. I pray to the God of Heaven that his hand will be guiding each vote, each count, each heart, and ultimately our nation as a whole this voting season and always. It is good to know that no matter what happens - He still has it all in his hands.
