When I was a little boy growing up in Cleveland, there was a common thread that seemed to connect our family with the vast majority of our neighbors. That common thread was more like a threefold cord of Duty Honor Country that could not be easily shredded or snapped. The American values consisting of Duty Honor Country were ensconced in Jedeo/Christian ethics. They are in this man’s opinion one of the greatest sources of blessings enjoyed throughout our history. Duty Honor and Country were so prevalent almost everywhere. It was literally impossible for me to believe that I would one day witness a time when merely expressing a desire to keep our republic great for Americans would be falsely interpreted as racist, bigoted, or xenophobic. Despite what lying leftists often bellow, race has nothing to do with maintaining our exceptional nation for ourselves and future generations.
The United States of America is the first and only nation founded for both the glory of God and on the principle of unalienable rights for individuals which come from God. Out of that magnificent ideal grew one great nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all. The founders understood that while liberty is wonderful, it cannot be maintained unless the people first know about it and are willing to maintain it. For us to remain a free people we must not allow those opposed freedom to have their way. It is our duty to fight for our God given rights. One of the best ways to ensure the opposers of liberty never succeed in destroying it, is to teach our young at home, school and church.
Young Americans must be taught right from wrong. But that is just the beginning. They must also receive a complete high quality of education that includes true American history and the rudiments of our Constitutionally limited form of government. Students must be instructed in Free Market economics and about the unlimited opportunities it presents. The maintenance of a good moral code cannot be stressed enough to our youth, if the goal of restoring and maintaining American greatness is sincere. Last, but certainly not least, seeing to it that our young Americans are taught about and encouraged to seek Providential guidance is paramount. The founding fathers, Frederick Douglas, Ronald Reagan and now president Trump just to name a very few who have and in the case of our current president have all benefited from looking to the one who shed His grace upon our republic. The thing they all have in common is the sense of Duty Honor Country.
In 1836, Noah Webster, often called “The Father of American Education,” expressed the purpose of schools was meant for the advancement of the Christian faith. Webster, like many of his contemporaries credited the Christian religion for setting the foundation for the liberties that we today often take for granted. Webster understood that an ongoing faith in God must be the basis of our government if the intent is to secure and never extinguish the rights and privileges of a free society. He himself spoke of the maintaining Duty Honor country.
Unfortunately, in time, a John Dewey inspired philosophical shift took place in America and the Biblical principles for education were eroded, then replaced with corrupt indoctrination. Dewey, the father of modern education/indoctrination said, “There is no God, and there is no soul. Hence, there is no need for the props of the Christian religion.” Those props have certainly been knocked away. Thus, the loss of moral standards has opened the door to numerous declines in almost every aspect of society, particularly education and moral instruction. Dewey, Marx, Stalin and numerous American leftists clearly understood that in order to separate Americans from their sense of Duty Honor Country, they must first be separated from their love of God, excellence, a high moral standard and the family.
The Founders were absolutely correct in asserting that America would fail if it lost its Christian oriented foundation. Many so called “anti religious” government school boards have introduced five and six year old students to Satanic clubs. It is incumbent on “We the People” to make haste and actively seek to reaffirm what made the United States the envy of the world. If not, those enemies within our republic and throughout the world will succeed in bringing about drastic/nasty changes equal to what has occurred in places like Venezuela. Without a strong moral compass, there will be no Duty, Honor, Country. I for one believe that the United States of America will overcome current globalist concocted setbacks and fulfill her manifest destiny as that shining city on hill. God bless America and may America bless God.
