Washington’s Day of Thanksgiving and Prayer – Jimmy Madison Would Not Approve

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - George Washington issued proclamations that led to Thanksgiving and the National Day of Prayer, the latter of which did not sit well with Jimmy Madison. After the Convention, Madison developed a "hands off" view of the National Government as it relates to religion. In the early days, there was no separation of religion and government. Many of Congress's meetings began and ended with prayer. During Monroe's presidency, Madison didn't think that the government should be paying Chaplain's to visit the troops, now if he had tried this just 20 years earlier, no one would have even listened to him, but by the 1790's things had already changed.

“No Conservatism Without a Religious Foundation” – Russell Kirk

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Russell Kirk asked, "Can there be any robust conservatism in American life WITHOUT a religious devotion?" The answer is a resounding "No". He also wrote that a society that denies religion also lacks faith, charity, and compassion and "When a nation ignores the divine authority, it soon commits the excesses of fanatic nationalism, intoxicated with its own unchecked power, which have made the twentieth century terrible." He wrote this back in 1957, how do you think he would feel now? With everyone clamouring for one-size-fits-all solutions for everything from gun laws to abortions and America having troops in practically every country on the planet?

If Rand Paul Is Guilty of Plagiarism… So Is Almost Every President Since George Washington

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Let's not forget that almost every President since the greatest one (George Washington in case you were wondering) has had speech writers. These people are often influenced by other sources throughout history, sometimes they are quoted, cited in footnotes, sometimes they are not. It's always better to cite your sources, especially now days, when the media is ready to pounce on anyone (especially someone on the right) that they believe may be guilty of GASP... plagiarism. And as we said before, Rand was NOT presenting these views as his own, he was using a movie to compare and contrast what is going on in today's politics, nor was he taking anything out of context, which is very important when it comes to plagiarism.

This Day In Founding Fathers History – 26 July

This Day in Founding Fathers History - Where we bring you important dates in the lives and history of the Founding Generation. One notable birthday on this day in 1727, that of Horatio Gates. Gates was born in England and moved to America at 22, fought during the French and Indian War, and then returned to England. He didn’t return to the U.S. until 1772, at which point he purchased a plantation in Virginia. At the outset of the Revolutionary War, Gates became a brigadier general, taking command of troops in New York.

This Day In Founding Fathers History – 16 May

This Day in Founding Fathers History - Where we bring you important dates in the lives and history of the Founding Generation. On this day in 1775, the citizens of Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania met at Hanna’s Town in convention to form an association. “Resolved unanimously, That there is no reason to doubt that the same system of tyranny and oppression will be extended to every other part of America: It is therefore become the indispensable duty of every American, of every man who has any public virtue or love for his country, or any bowels for posterity, by every means which God has put in his power, to resist and oppose the execution of it; that for us we will be ready to oppose it with our lives and fortunes.” The group organized itself as a regiment prepared to defend themselves, and demanded that the unjust statutes, taxes and tyrannies being imposed on the colonists stop.

The Founding Fathers Weren’t Gods, And Neither Are Modern Politicians

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I wish it were a news flash, but it’s not a news flash that the welfare state has replaced the charity state and the little laboratories of philanthropy and democracy that de Tocqueville saw when he came here back in the 1820s and 1830s and wrote a book about it called Democracy in America. I think the experiment was doomed to fail as soon as the first bow was breached. We can wax vainglorious all we want to about the magnanimity and the genius and brilliance of the founding fathers, but the fact of the matter remains that it’s their system that has become corrupted.

Perhaps Rand Paul Didn’t Technically Plagiarize But His Scholarship Is Highly Lacking

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What has emerged is that there are instances where he has quoted effusively or excessively from prior written works. He’s done so in his speeches and he’s done so in his written works. Quoting from prior written works is fine. I do it all the time. You have to go through the process of footnoting or denoting sources. It’s almost impossible to do this in a speech, unless you’re going to publish the written version of the speech. Even there the footnotes that should have appeared are not appearing. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

You Won’t Find Your Leader Of The 101st Talk Radio Show Militia Here

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Simpson makes the other brilliant point, which is very rarely discussed. Let’s just say that what you think is going to happen actually happens. What happens after that? Who gets to run the show? You people think there’s actually another George Washington out there? Our revolution was very unique. Our revolution was one of the very rare instances in the history of all humanity, 8,000 years of recorded history, ours was one of the very, very rare instances where at the end of a revolution, a king, a monarch, or a dictator did not move in to assume power.
