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 – 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.
