We Still Hold These Truths

The Heritage Foundation released this 20 minute movie back in September on America’s founding principles .

In a world of moral confusion, and of arbitrary and unlimited government, America's founding principles are our best access to permanent truths and the best ground from which to question the current direction of our nation. Join Matt Spalding, author of We Still Hold These Truths and an authority on American political thought and religious liberty at The Heritage Foundation, as he highlights some everyday Americans on a journey to reclaim our future.

How can we get America back on course?

By returning to the timeless principles and practical wisdom that have been the source of America's monumental success.

By knowing and believing in ten core principles that define us as a nation and inspire us as a people—liberty and equality, natural rights and the consent of the governed, private property and religious freedom, the rule of law and constitutionalism, all culminating in self-government at home and independence in the world.


Wild Thing's comment.......

This gave me goosebumps and tears watching and listening to it. It will touch your soul because you all that come to this blog love America lilke I do. I cherish your love for our country, it means a lot to me. Your comments and input is something I look forward to each day; as you speak from your hearts and share and laugh and rant too about things.

This video by The Heritage Foundation is so good. I love things like this. God bless our beloved country!!!!!

And God bless every person that has fought and served our country to allow me to live in the land of the free. Thank you with all my heart.

We WILL take care of our country and fight back against those wanting to destroy her. I love the story of the Oak tree in the video.

I certainly do hope we get back on the path of constitutional freedoms. To see those quotes from over 200 years ago by men who wrote The Constitution and signed The Declaration of Independence makes me realize how far we have strayed from their original intents.

Outstanding video. Is the Constitution even taught in schools anymore, if not that's part of the problem. Kids keep insisting we are a democracy when we are not.

What we are: "The American system is not a democracy. It is a constitutional republic. A democracy, if you attach meaning to terms, is a system of unlimited majority rule . . . a form of collectivism, which denies individual rights . . . . The American system is a constitutionally limited republic, restricted to the protection of individual rights."

Nov 2nd may've come and gone, but 2012 is a long way off... if there's anything you might want to buy, now might be the time.

Tom, thanks for pointing that out, that is very important. I agree, we have strayed so very far away from it's original intent.

Mark, I don't think it is taught anymore. Also when Nick asked his nephews about our governement and how it is set up they had no clue. It was so sad and upsetting, almost like when Jay Leno does that man on the sidewalk thing he does when he asks people questions. Thanks for the quote Mark.

Annonymous, I understand and thank you, you are absolutely right to mention that. We live in scary times, and unsure times.
