Supreme Court? Or, Supreme Ignorance?
We know that George Washington was First in War, First in Peace and First in the Hearts of his Countryman. Could we also say that he was First to Thank God for the Bounty of his Blessings in the establishment of our great Nation? In his own words,
"....it would be peculiarly improper to omit in this first official act my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the universe, who presides in the councils of nations, and whose providential aids can supply every human defect, that His benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the people of the United States a Government instituted by themselves for these essential purposes, and may enable every instrument employed in its administration to execute with success the functions allotted to his charge."
He continued on to state the obvious. His sentiments were not only his but also the people at large in the new Nation. In his own words,
"In tendering this homage to the Great Author of every public and private good, I assure myself that it expresses your sentiments not less than my own, nor those of my fellow- citizens at large less than either. No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the Invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more than those of the United States. Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency; and in the important revolution just accomplished in the system of their united government the tranquil deliberations and voluntary consent of so many distinct communities from which the event has resulted can not be compared with the means by which most governments have been established without some return of pious gratitude, along with an humble anticipation of the future blessings which the past seem to presage."
In conclusion, in his own words,
"I shall take my present leave; but not without resorting once more to the benign Parent of the Human Race in humble supplication that, since He has been pleased to favor the American people with opportunities for deliberating in perfect tranquillity, and dispositions for deciding with unparalleled unanimity on a form of government for the security of their union and the advancement of their happiness, so His divine blessing may be equally conspicuous in the enlarged views, the temperate consultations, and the wise measures on which the success of this Government must depend." (Citation: President George Washington's First Inaugural Address, April 30, 1789; Records of the United States Senate, Record Group 46, National Archives)
George Washington, with a vision that spanned two hundred years of history, on 19 September 1796, told the young nation that,
"One method of assault may be to effect, in the forms of the Constitution, alterations which will impair the energy of the system, and thus to undermine what cannot be directly overthrown." (President George Washington's Farewell Address (1796)
Would the Founding Fathers be absolutely incredulous that the preferred instrument of destruction of this great Judeo-Christian Nation would be the Supreme Court of the United States? Our intellectual elite must be out of their ever loving collective minds. They actually believe that they are going to give us a brave new world by destroying our Nation's "dependence" on "superstitious religion." Failing to notice that communism has been totally incapable of destroying any religion they are pretentiously proceeding with their plans to eradicate organized religion as a factor in the life of our great Nation. My prediction is that they will destroy this Nation and religion will continue to be in the hearts of the citizens of this great Nation. That is unless we regain control to halt the destructive ways of the intellectual elite.
We need to prepare for the coming battle for Supreme Court appointments. We deserve the appointment, by President Bush, of candidates who reflect the values of the religious people of this Nation. We need to write our elected Senators and Representatives. Republicans need to get aggressive with the demoracists. They were in charge for forty years and they exercised power with an iron fist. Only the delusional believe that there is anything to be gained by playing nice nice with the demoracists.
Just a thought. What would happen if people holding copies of the Ten Commandments were to inundate our Nation's courts? I have spent some time waiting in the hallways of justice for my time to be in the court. I had this vision of people leaning against the wall, or sitting on benches, outside of the courtrooms holding a copy of the Ten Commandments like a live picture frame. Would that be against the law? Would we see law enforcement officials being ordered to take action? How far are we willing to go? The next time I have to go to court I am going to pin a copy of the Ten Commandments to my clothes like a note from mommy. I am old and crazy. I can pull it off.
