Like many other Americans, I am deeply concerned about our nation’s future.
The Weekly Standard of December 21, 2009, reports that "a survey commissioned by the American Revolution Center" found that "when it came to a simple test of knowledge about the founding [of the United States of America], nearly 83 percent of . . . Americans failed.” knowledgeable defense of our founding document to be found anywhere.
In the face of this woeful ignorance, the Constitution of the United States of America is under an unprecedented attack by Barack Obama and his runaway Democrat Party, aided and abetted by the complicit mainstream media.
Yet with a few notable exceptions there is hardly any knowledgeable defense of our founding document to be found anywhere.
Not on radio or television. Not in the press. Not at the grassroots. Certainly not in academia. Nor, sadly, among most Republicans, Conservatives and even Libertarians. Most of the Media’s “instant,” pontificating constitutional experts, especially those on national television, do more harm than good because they spread disinformation that is neither knowledgeable nor principled.While many “tea party” activists and other patriots are valiantly trying to fight for core constitutional values, they’re disarmed because they have been taught little about American constitutional law. The fact is that everyone fighting for America today, in order to defend the Constitution, must know the answers to countless crucial questions.
Those who are committed to fighting for that future must acquire a basic understanding of the Constitution’s origins and birth, its written text, the manner in which it has been deliberately violated, and the consequences of how it has been misinterpreted by collectivists and statists.
