Free course from Hillsdale College in American Liberties. A MUST READ
Posted March 8, 2013on:
I have for several years now received newsletters from one of the few and wonderful conservative colleges left in our country: Hillsdale College. They are offering a new FREE on-line course in American history that I certainly plan to take and you may also want to follow. The information is below. BB
( From an email to me from Hillsdale College) I’m Larry Arnn, president of Hillsdale College, and your teacher for the first of the ten classes that make up the course. I’m eager to tell you more about this important and timely series, being offered online for the FIRST TIME – For Free!
But first, here’s an interesting little test for you: Which President said the following? (HINT: It was during his Second Inaugural Address.)
” . . . each time we gather to inaugurate a president, we bear witness to the enduring strength of our Constitution.
“What makes us exceptional, what makes us America is our allegiance to an idea articulated in a declaration . . . We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, and among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
“The patriots of 1776 did not fight to replace the tyranny of a king with the privileges of a few, or the rule of a mob. They gave to us a republic, a government of, and by, and for the people. Entrusting each generation to keep safe our founding creed . . . ”
Who comes to mind: Jefferson?Lincoln? Reagan?
Actually it’s none of the above. It wasBarack Obama.
Surprised? I was too.
How can a President of the United States use phrases like “unalienable rights” and government “of, by, and for the people,” when all of his actions point away from a republic of liberty, and toward bureaucratic despotism?
President Obama’s policies – from Obamacare, to higher taxes and runaway debt, to increased regulation of the economy and of family life – are in direct contradiction to these words in his second inaugural address.
President Obama can only get away with misusing the words of America’s founders because too many Americans today have not been properly educated about our American Heritage.
And if this is allowed to continue, our great nation will become less free and less prosperous, and the intrusive bureaucratic state will expand.
To steer our nation in the right direction, Americans must once again be educated for liberty. That is why I implore you to take these two steps right now:
