America Truly is the Greatest Country in the World. Don’t Let Freedom Slip Away
By Kitty Werthmann (An Austrian who witnessed what took place under Hitler)
What I am about to tell you is something you’ve probably never heard or read in history books.
I am an eyewitness to history. I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history. We elected him by a landslide – 98% of the vote. I’ve never read that in any American publications. Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.

Beyond Brown the Second Round
 By Dr. Robert R. Owens 
In the 1890s a movement grew out International Socialism.  It manifested itself in many ways in the United States.  In religion it became the Social Gospel, in education the Dewey Method and in politics Progressivism.  In the first half of the 20th century America had three Progressive Presidents Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson and FDR controlling both major parties.  These three leaders and the movement they represented attempted to change America from a country of limited government to a country of massive government.  Once people realized that progressivism meant government intrusion into the smallest parts of their life and the redistribution of wealth through oppressive taxation they repudiated them and sought other leaders.
As people rejected Progressivism the Big Government cadre in both parties perverted an old label and became Liberals.  As people realized modern Liberalism is nothing more than a scheme to redistribute wealth and buy votes with entitlements they morphed back into Modern Progressives.  As people begin to realize that modern Progressivism is nothing more than a scheme to redistribute wealth and buy votes with entitlements watch as the shape-shifters turn into Populists.  It should be interesting to watch as the captured media transform a Harvard lawyer who rails against people clinging to guns and Bibles and makes fun of people driving pick-up trucks into a man of the people.  Running out of the besieged Tower of Doom shouting “Down with the Banks!” pretending to lead the crowd marching on his agenda isn’t going to fool anyone.

Class War:  How Public Servants Became Our Masters
Government employees have turned themselves into a coddled class that lives better than its private-sector counterpart, and with more impunity.  In effect, the public’s servants have become our masters, says Steven Greenhut, a columnists with the Orange County Register.
There was a time when government work offered lower salaries than comparable jobs in the private sector but more security and somewhat better benefits. These days, government workers fare better than private-sector workers in almost every area — pay, benefits, time off, and job security:

From whence we came
by Lynn Stuter
But in reading the writings of our Founding Fathers, one thing becomes crystal clear, that the flow of power should be from “The Creator” to “the people” to “the government”. Our Founding Fathers knew that the only way that man could truly be free was to establish a limited form of government that allowed man the greatest latitude to govern self.
Our Founding Fathers knew that the only way this nation could remain a limited form of government is if the people, themselves, choose to live by the Ten Commandments of God. Thus the very first amendment to the United States Constitution:
“Freedom of religion, of speech, and of the press. 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.”

Why is America where it is today?
First of all, how many children in the public schools are taught the reality of the founding of our nation? I can answer that with one word: none. And that situation has been so for more than 50 years.
If a nation knows not from whence it came; it will not know to where it is going and Americans today, by and large, have no clue the founding principles of this nation.
