Why I started this blog

I took a class on the constitution last year and was appauled at how far we've gotten from the original founding principles. I am even more disturbed by how few Americans are even aware of the current crisis they are in. We are losing our freedoms. It is my desire to make every American aware of this fact, so they can do something about it.

I am, of course, not talking about a bloody or violent revolution. The battle we will fight for freedom will be peacefully within our own communities, within the walls of our own homes, and indeed within our own souls. We the people must first change ourselves before we can see clearly how to heal America and win back our freedoms. As we educate ourselves and not only come to know the Founding Fathers, but to know what they knew we will be prepared to defend freedom as they did. And it won't be by changing Washington. It will begin as we strengthen our familes and thus our neighborhoods and our communities. We CAN change America one family at a time.

Sound to good to be true? Try it! Start educating yourself NOW. Begin by reading The Five Thousand Year Leap by Cleon Skousen. Your library probably has several copies. Even better - get your own copy and write your thoughts and feelings in the margins as you read it. (And no! I don't make any money by suggesting this to you! I'm just a concerned citizen!) Then, teach others about what you've learned (especially those in your own family and neighborhood).
This one simple thing can make a huge differnce because it will educate you. After reading this book when you hear things that are going on in the government you will be able to ask yourself, "Does this go with or against the Founding Principles?" Just by knowing the answer to this question you will know when to contact your local representatives and make your voice heard. You will be able to tell them that you don't agree with something because it goes against the principles of freedom. Or you'll be able to give them your full support because it defends the principles of freedom. So, go get this book and get started on gaining back our freedoms (liberating the captives) TODAY!
