The addendum of references and notes to this excerpt are my own…

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

The economic anxiety, spiritual malaise, and geopolitical unease gripping America these days have nothing to do with Donald Trump and his hostile takeover of the Republican Party.

Nor, amazingly, does it have anything to do with Hillary Clinton, whose mug has been in our faces since 1992 and who shows no signs of willingly departing absent death, deportation to St. Helena, or forcible retirement.

Nor does it have anything to do with the collapse of the GOP, brought low by its misrule by the Bush family, and done in by the wasted lives and money in the misbegotten Iraq and Afghanistan adventures — “wars” that have dragged on three times longer than World War II and are unlikely to abate… ever.

In what is now named his Farewell Address (copy of original archive ), George Washington had many concerns in our Congress as well as We the People remaining focused for what he and the other Founding Fathers worked and fought so diligently and sacrificially, even warning of the spirit of revenge that is inherent in having political party systems…

The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge natural to party dissention, which in different ages & countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders & miseries, which result, gradually incline the minds of men to seek security & repose in the absolute power of an Individual: and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of Public Liberty.

Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind (which nevertheless ought not to be entirely out of sight) the common & continual mischiefs of the spirit of Party are sufficient to make it the interest and the duty of a wise People to discourage and restrain it.

It serves always to distract the Public Councils and enfeeble the Public Administration. It agitates the Community with ill founded Jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot & insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence & corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country, are subjected to the policy and will of another.

With his words ringing ever true today, without a doubt Washington knew that where we focus is where we end up.

Yet our Constitution is only the content of what they fought to bring to our new nation.

We need to remember the context of it all as well…

And the ONLY way to do that is to know our history and not as the current school textbooks say the way it was but through our own pursuit of the words and documents of our Founding Fathers.

All this is possible, in part, through our National Archives who maintains every document they can obtain and receive.

Seeking authors who write about the Founding Fathers using their words directly and without injecting their opinions is another direction to pursue as well (thoughts are one thing, opinions are another).

And while we are learning all this, converse with family and friends on what you have discovered.

You will be amazed at their reactions…

As well as your own.

However, William D. Campbell, a lobbyist, confirmed to Reuters he is the informant who will testify and provide documents to Congress about the Obama Administration’s 2010 approval of the sale of Uranium One, a Canadian company with uranium mines in the United States, to Russia’s Rosatom. At the time of the sale, Campbell was a confidential source for the FBI in a Maryland bribery and kickback investigation of the head of a U.S. unit of Rosatom, the Russian state-owned nuclear power company.

Reflections from Decisive Liberty

The following stance is stated in the final paragraph of the oration given for the unveiling of our Statue of Liberty on the 28th of October, 1886....

... there is room in America and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development; but those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.

You can view the full oration by clicking here.

We at Decisive Liberty are committed to this stance and welcome all - if you have not already - to join us in learning to live by this stance.

There are only two nations that have placed God within their Constitution and way of life - one was created by God for the people he loves, and the other was created by people who love God.
