In 1775 the majority of the colonists in America were unwilling to risk everything they had to become a new free and independent nation. They lacked the courage and confidene to fight for their lives, liberty and property.
Then a miracle took place when Thomas Paine published a pamphlet that sold 500,000 copies and convinced the people in order to make their lives worth living, they would need to declare independence and fight for their God given rights.
With a population of less than 2.5 million people, he singlehandedly was responsible for a paradigm shift that led to the creation of a new nation.
Today with a population of 330 million, we would need to deliever our message to 66 million poeple. Witht he advent of the internet, this objective can be achieved in a very short jperiod of time.
We don't need to shoulder a musket, we recapure are freedom, we simply need to awaken our friends and neighbors and restire the principles upon which our nation was founded.
Edward... you are taking scriptures out of context and applying legaleze to them. A contract is a contract... unless someone refutes that agreement or relationship: Preamble to the U.S. Constitution... "We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America." Our founding generation were NOT trying to get people to "forget about Christ and God's law" in any way. You best stop spouting your mouth until you research the bible a bit more and our original founding documents!!!
Spoken as a believer in nothing. If not for our Constitution and Bill of Rights, then what?
if Lincoln and his followers had but followed our blessed Foundation, our own Civil War would never have occurred.
if but only for the Fifth Amendment, all Slaves, (Property) would have been purchased by the government, the Slaves made Citizens of a Free State and Lives and monies saved on both sides. But was never the intent of the War, was it?
The majority of our Founding Fathers were Free Masons who believed in a Supreme Being, The Grand Architect. That is why we are endowed by our Creator.
If our Citizens find comfort in whatever form of worship they choose, our First Amendment guarantees them that Right. It is not to be belittled.

No God. No rights. We are reaping what we have sowed. God is higher.
Jeanine, I agree that people who have no God Relationship have no sacred or inalienable rights to claim. Then our next step is to be sure we are all on the same page about what is the problem, and what is our strategy for reversing the trend that is taking away our rights--if that is the problem. I have been on this site about two weeks, so I'm learning, and that is my first question: What is the problem.?
Mr. Robin may read this. If so he may feel an urge to reply to my message here. Mr. Robin, I did not get a clear picture of what you think the problem is, but I'm hoping you will be patient and just read some more people's input before you try again to define the problem. Now I will go back to Ms. Jeanine.
Ms. Jeanine, what do you think is a good statement of the problem that this site is trying to deal with? After zeroing in on the problem, we might try to list possible steps of action that would help. May all who wish to address political issues be blessed with wisdom and with a spirit of respect and patience. Lewis
Hello Lewis and welcome to this site. Thank you for such a respectful greeting to the group.
As far as what the site is trying to do, Keith is doing everything possible in his power to give us facts about our founding, our Constitution, our founders. God Bless Keith, he is doing everything he can.
I try to keep up but cannot. There is a wealth of knowledge here as far as the facts and the history of our precious country and her earlier beliefs.
However, replacing God with law can never work. Our earliest Puritan founders built a biblical world view on top of a biblical foundation. That was all destroyed with the Constitution and the complete separation (today's reading) of the Declaration from the Constitution (and the refusal to require a biblical world view in order to hold office.)
It was the Declaration that was revolutionary, claiming all of our rights come from our One Divine Creator, and that government's only purpose is to protect those same God-given rights, and if government fails, we shall Alter or Abolish that government.
God is higher. Always. Was. Is. Will Be. Unless and until we quit focusing and giving credit to satan for all he has accomplished in this country while ignoring the very God who gave us this country, we will continue down the same path as the Romans to complete destruction.
God signals HIs plans to his prophets. Current prophesy says this—That Trump will have two terms. That Pence will have two terms. That American will have her 3rd great revival. That America will be restored.
A good book, Planting the Heavens, says that we plant the heavens with our declarations. A very small organ in our body with the most damaging impact, and it is our tongue. Change what we say. Make it about God. Instead of about the evil that we see daily.
Peace, Protection. Salvation. Redemption. Glorification. Glory to Glory, we shall be changed, and with us, the atmosphere. Nothing can stop our God from doing what He intends to do with America.
I am NOT saying, don't be active. I write. I teach as much as I can, what I know to whomever I can. I have found that educating a liberal on the foundation of America leads right to an open door to the Bible. Truth and Righteousness can only come from the Word. I personally, think it is a beautiful thing to use the one as the bait, to the finer thing. To drop a seed about real Truth. The Word is active, sharper than any two-edged sword. It can even slice through the mind of a bright, married liberal Women's March, lesbian. I watched it happen.
Numbers 13:32 and Joshua 2:2. Joshua sent out ten soldiers to see the size of the enemy. God called their report "Evil" that reported that the Hebrews were vastly outnumbered. It was the truth as far as the natural world. But the two others sent by Joshua kept their eyes upon the Lord, saw the same situation, came back and said, "We are Well Able" to take the land. And they did because God led and God provided. The battle IS God's. But we are to watch our mouths and keep our eyes on the Lord.
Everyone here cares so much about America and what we are seeing, in the way of marxism, government tyranny and corruption. Still, it is about God. Always was. Always will be.
We must learn the facts such as Keith is teaching, but we must war Ephesians 6:12. Our prayer is powerful, not only individually, but corporately, it is Unbeatable. The dead rise. The sick are healed. Plant the heavens. Light the fire where the #1 position is. Then come back and support the fire for learning more in the #2 position, where it belongs. God always wins. I am on HIs side.
I have learned to contain my political fires, they are still there, but I have learned prayer works. I am also, however, trying to educate Senator Rob Portman about more than a few things, the Senate Conservatives also. I did do a rant. But God, still is 1st. Amen.
i KNOW WHAT THE CONSTITUTION IS ALONG WITH THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE: OUR LAWS! AND THE CONSTITUTION AND IT'S FIRST 10 AMENDMENTS SHOULD NEVER BE AMENDED.
I fully agree with wanting to hold onto the US Constitution, but regarding amendments, it would likely be good if we put term limits on the US House of Representatives.
It is our responsibility to educate our children and our grandchildren of the history about the Founding of our Republic, our Constitution and our Bill of Rights. No one else will but us! Knowledge is power.

Reply to Mr. Edward Jay Robin: Focus, clarity, and specificity are necessary to good, effective communication. A day or so ago, you posted a reply beginning thusly: "It seem no one here wishes to learn the meaning of the word constitutor ." That is too general, i.e. too non-specific, because it casts aspersion on everyone who has posted to this website. Your next sentence included: "... you base this whole site upon the false premise.." That, Mr. Robin, is a general, non-specific, blanket condemnation of this ConstitutionClub website. Therefore, if you wish to be viewed as a non-disingenuous contributor to this site, I will expect to see specificity, clarity, and courtesy in your future postings. You may wish to apologize for the condescending and accusative tone of your two-sentence posting today at approximately six A.M. 21Jan2019 . <>
Lawyers are wordsmiths that have changed the meaning of words and in the process have rewritten the Consstitution to create a document that gives the government the authority to do whatever they feel is necessary and proper. The lawyers are the foot soldiers for the Wall Street bankers and corporations.
The government that was created to protect the rights of the people a tool of the financial elite to control the people and violate the rights of the people that it was created to protect.
From the inception of our Constitutional Republic, the greatest damage has always been done by those elected with Law Degrees, and/or practicing attorneys.
the Common man, with Common Sense, would have grasped the entire concept of our Republic's very foundation is it's Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Lawyers are trained Professional Liars.

Keith, You mention lawyers causing loss of Constitutional integrity in Government, and lawyers doing the bidding of banks and corporations. Can you enlighten me whether I would be right in guessing that the focus of this website is to help wake up citizens to the apparent fact that lawyers have drifted off into a mode of operation that is essentially greedy aggrandizement through manipulation of political systems? <> Lewis Bishop
