History - Part 2

by Robin

I'm in the midst of a very good read if you happen to be a Conservative, Constitutionalist or Republican, and maybe even a Libertarian. I'm not sure where Democrats may fall with this read. Of course, if you're a Statist, you're going to want to burn every copy you see.

But I digress...... The book is "Liberty and Tyranny" by Mark Levin who happened to be on the Glenn Beck show this week. My friends already had a copy on their bookshelves they loaned to me. This book works perfectly with it being the 4th of July weekend.

I'm loving a lot of quotes from former Presidents & writers of the Constitution & Declaration of Independance. Very cool history stuff. Things you won't find in textbooks when teaching your kids.

Pg 34 - In Sen. Barry Goldwater's Rep nomination for President, 1964 acceptance speech...
"those who elevate the state and
downgrade the citizen
must see ultimately a world in which
earthly power can be substituted for Divine Will,
and this Nation was founded
upon the rejection of that notion
and upon the acceptance of God
as the author of freedom."
Thank you God, ultimately, for my freedom!!!!
Thank you all service men and women and families for your sacrifice for freedom in the US!!!
Thank you Jesus for my freedom from condemnation through your sacrifice on the cross.
Happy 4th of July everyone!!

Thank you for the reminder that our freedom isn't free.
