“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
— United States Declaration of Independence, 1776
“Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that their liberties are the gift of God?”
— Thomas Jefferson
“What is liberty without wisdom and without virtue? It is the greatest of all possible evils; for it is folly, vice, and madness, without restraint. Men are qualified for civil liberty in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their own appetites;…….. Society cannot exist, unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere; and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free.”
— Edmund Burke
“He who is void of virtuous attachments in private life is, or very soon will be, void of all regard for his country. There is seldom an instance of a man guilty of betraying his country, who had not before lost the feeling of moral obligations in his private connections.”
— Samuel Adams
“Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.”
— John Adams
“Sir, no nation has ever yet existed or been governed without religion. Nor can be. The Christian religion is the best religion that has been given to man, and I as chief magistrate of this nation am bound to give it the sanction of my example.”
— Thomas Jefferson
“Had the people been less independent, less virtuous, would we have been blessed with the same success? It is only when the people become ignorant and corrupt” that they can’t choose competent and faithful representatives for office, and “usurpation becomes an easy attainment, and an usurper soon found.”
— James Monroe
“A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins.”
— Benjamin Franklin
Dear friends and patriots,
Wayne LaPierre, Executive Vice President of the National Rifle Association, is not just engaging in a rant against socialism. The dangers which he warns about are real, not imaginary. The indoctrination of our young people in progressive-dominated colleges and universities is happening every day in our country, and represents nothing less than an existential clear and present danger to our freedoms and our very way of life as Americans.
Let me take this one step further: What exactly do we plan to do about this?
This problem did not happen overnight, and it will not be neutralized overnight. A prolonged and determined effort on our part is necessary to counteract the anti-American propaganda which is manipulating our youth and converting their fertile minds into those of young socialists.
We must spend more time with our young people from the earliest ages, making sure that they have a fundamental and sound knowledge of American history and principles. But that is only a starting point. Next we need to put that knowledge to the test and into action. Get your young people involved in patriotic activities. Teach them about the outdoors, hunting, and fishing. Help them learn to be independent critical thinkers. And last, but not least, be sure that the quality and character of their friends measures up to the investment you are pouring into their development.
The future of America depends upon the actions we take today. This is a battle we cannot afford to lose.
