Submission + - American Founding Fathers

A book of pamphlets by Ronald B. White

These pamphlets begin with the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights in order that its author can express his ideas on other's liberal and anti-American statements.

Amendments 1-10 of the Constitution
Amendment I
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

Inalienable rights: "incapable of being surrendered a moral propriety." Webster's Dictionary

"...endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights ..." Declaration of Independence

This email begins a short series of how the divide within our Founding Fathers strengthened their fundamental doctrines and that those doctrines have been distorted by internal enemies of the United States of America. I do not believe in conspiracy theories nor do I believe in fairies. I believe in our inalienable rights are the power against all our enemies both within and without the United States.

"Some gentlemen have affected to call the principles upon which this work and the former part of Rights of Man are founded, 'a new-fangled doctrine'. The question is not whether those principles are new or old, but whether they are right or wrong." Thomas Paine, The Rights of Man

As the reader has seen, I am a conservative, financially by necessity and politically by necessity. I do not know if my friends or business associates had political leanings to liberal or conservative causes unless they offer it.

Political liberal: "one who emphasizes intellectual liberty; one who emphasizes individual freedom from restraint; subtlety, craftiness."

Political conservative: "one who preserves what is established; one who bases economic philosophy on social stability."

In reviewing a recent New York Times, I read the article 'California Court Upholds Ban on Same Sex-Marriage' by Jesse McKinley [10/06/06]

"Courts simply do not have the authority to create new rights, especially when doing so involves changing the definition of so fundamental an institution as marriage." Justice William McGuiness

The major terrorist of the Twenty-First Century is, in my opinion, has been our lack of faith in our inalienable rights. At the end of his piece, I have put together a short time-line from the starting dates of the American Revolution, the Afghanistan Revolution, and the Iraq Revolution because of criticisms about the length of time it has taken for Afghan and Iraqi independence in our liberal and the length of time it took for our Founding Fathers to write a Constitution and establish law and order.

It is my belief the inalienable rights of the Declaration of Independence have become a sort of civil rights divide between those who seek to defend these inalienable rights and those who desire others' alienable rights — the dividing line between those who fight for conservative values and those who fight for liberal immoralities that, in my opinion, create the clash between liberty and slavery.

How far has the moral pendulum swung away from the values of America Founding Fathers seems to have been demonstrated by the actions and words of our own elected and appointed officials.

"There's not a liberal America and a conservative America — there's the United States of America."

"There's not a liberal America and a conservative America — there's the United States of America."

Illinois Senator Barack Obama

  In comparing the abuses by these elected and appointed officials can be seen, again in my opinion, through the ruling made by a Federal Court judge that it was unconstitutional to have reference to those inalienable rights in the American Pledge of Allegiance since the words "under God" appear in our National pledge which some public school children are not allowed again by a United States court decision a U.S. district judge has stopped the wiretap of suspected terrorists need for national security and a bill sent to Congress by the President of the United. How can America right itself when its ability to defend itself against Islamic terrorism is usurped by American judges who have been funded by anti-Christian organizations? The organizations against civil liberty violations step up their fight to levels of damaging national security in step with the threat of Islamic terrorism and skewed liberalism within our country.

One of the examples of this radical ideological divide that has usurped our inalienable rights of the Declaration of Independence is the order of the Alabama Supreme Judiciary to remove the monument in his office of the Ten Commandments. Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore was forced to remove the monument of the Ten Commandments — symbol of Judeo-Christian morals and laws.

Debate in our country of accepting God the only Supreme Being or Allah, the pagan god of the Islam could challenge our faith in our inalienable rights as long as we do not stand for the fundamental American values of our Founding Fathers, becoming their equals in moral courage as we have done in every world conflict since the founding of America. The simplicity of the words of Patrick Henry tell me that our own Fathers have survived by their adherence to the duties of the American citizen.

"Religion I have disposed of all my property to my family. There is one thing more I wish I could give to them, and that is the Christian religion. If they had that and I had not given them one cent, they would be rich. If they have not that, and I had given them the world, they would be poor."
Patrick Henry

  As we must exercise the same sense of integrity, same sense of moral courage, same sense of valor, as our Fathers, American values such as self-evident truths, prudence, integrity, courage, ambition — the same strengths that General George Washington availed himself of and demanded of his Army are those same inalienable strengths that we either possess or can lose today by our indifference.

In his liberal comments titled "Injecting religion into debates about public policy?, Senator John Kerry has put his spin on how the Founding Fathers should have "shuttered to see how easily" Americans are manipulated.

"Our Founding Fathers would shudder to see how easily forces outside the mainstream now seem to effortlessly push some Senate leaders toward conduct the American people don't want from their elected leaders: Abusing power. Inserting the government into our private lives. Injecting religion into debates about public policy. Jumping through hoops to ingratiate themselves to their party's base, while step by step, day by day, real problems that keep American families up at night fall by the wayside here in Washington." Senator John Kerry

One of our Founding Fathers might have warned us of this kind of manipulation when wrote this note two hundred years ago.

"Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government." President James Madison
In a recent interview with Bill O'Reilly of Fox News, President George W. Bush responded to a question about what is being done to fight Islamic terrorists, etc President George W. Bush replied that he is widely criticized for preaching liberty. This criticism derives, in my opinion, from advertised opponents of liberty — political liberals, Islamic terrorists, etc.
"Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God and nature. " Founding Father, Benjamin Franklin

"[Our] principles [are] founded on the immovable basis of equal right and reason." -President Thomas Jefferson in a letter to James Sullivan, 1797

The Founding Fathers fought as minute men against the inequalities and oppressions imposed by British tyranny and were aware of their inherent or inalienable rights that were theirs to express.

President James Madison was a strong proponent for the truths in the Ten Commandments. On page 120 of The Myth of Separation, its author, quotes President Madison.

"We have staked the whole future of American civilization not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments." President James Madison

On September 11, 2001, American was attacked by a religious adherents of Islam. It has been inane , in my opinion, for the American public to decide after the murders of that day to elect the political party that has resisted war against the Al Qaeda, Islamic terrorists of 9/11, of the brotherhood of Islamic terrorist.
Liberty is the quality or state of being free who liberal opponent believes in slavery of man. A political conservative is one who believes in established, traditional opponents whose liberal opponent believes in looser restraints and moral standards. An atheist is one who believes there is no God whose opponent is a Christian who believes in the tenets of Christianity that God is Supreme over all. That liberty to be free has never been demonstrated with effect than the American President who was assassinated for freeing slaves.
"I am not bound to win, but bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stands with him while he is right., and part with him he goes wrong." President Abraham Lincoln
Alienable is the transfer of ownership from one person to another, but a free man's rights cannot be transferred, they are inherent rights or moral prosperities.
"I must stand with anybody that stands right' is not the popular way to go. In my opinion, the liberal does not stand with liberty but opposes it. There are exceptions to my opinion, and Liberal Senator Joseph Lieberman is one. Again, the person who opposed Senator Joseph Lieberman won the Primary Democratic election in Connecticut on the issue of withdrawing American military personnel from Iraq.. The opponents debated the withdrawal of troops in Iraq with the mass murders of the Islamic terrorists' attacks of 9/11 still at large, and yet the victor was the American who pushed for not pursuing the enemy.
Americans for the most part are a people whose freedom has allowed them to move ahead and not look back. In my opinion, the battle cries of "Remember the Alamo!" will never be forgotten by Americans who love liberty enough to die for it. Patrick Henry was right when he said the following in the Virginia House of Burgesses:

"We are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of Nature has placed in our power... the battle, sir, is not to the strong alone it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. "Patrick Henry
" This is all the inheritance I can give my dear family. The religion of Christ can give them one which will make them rich indeed."
Patrick Henry wrote in his Last Will and Testament
It would be a dream come true for Thomas Jefferson to invite such liberals as Ward Churchill, professor at Colorado University to the Monticello for a course in American History.
Ward Churchill opening statement from a paper he has written:
"The great bulk of my scholarly work has been devoted to documenting the United States' disregard for law and the resulting violence it has perpetrated both domestically and internationally. I believe that such practices inevitably breed violence in response, and that the most effective way to ensure the security of all peoples is adherence to the Constitution and international law, particularly the laws of war and fundamental human rights law. "

Thomas Jefferson's course correction to Ward Churchill's statement from Jefferson's own library of statement might be:

"Ignorance is preferable to error, and he is less remote from the truth who believes nothing than he who believes what is wrong. "

"An enemy generally says and believes what he wishes. "
