Revisit Our Founding this Independance Day Weekend.

posted Jul 2, 2010, 7:46 AM by Robert Alexander

No Tea Party, just history!  The Tea Party movement has grown from just trying to be heard into a vast and diverse network of patriotic citizens taking action to restore responsibility in government under the control of its citizens.  If you have any doubt that we are making a difference just look how much effort is being made to discredit the whole movement. 

That is why it is so important for every citizen to know our history.  The formation of the United States of America was a turning point in the history of mankind.  It was not only a victory over the tyranny of the day but it established the protection of liberty.  It was culmination of all the best philosophies and theologies regarding governess of our fellow man.  For the very first time in the history of mankind the United States Constitution established a system of government in which the individual citizen was the origin of all authority.  Now it’s time for us to regain that authority.

I challenge each and every citizen to celebrate this Independence Day weekend by absorbing a little of the history of the founding of this great nation.  Get to know the timeless truth contained in the Constitution, the Federalist Papers, and in the Declaration of Independence.

If you are anywhere near Yorktown Virginia this weekend you really should take the opportunity to take in the history here.
