In response to John Velisek's newest Editorial https://theconstitutionalconservatives.com/forum/topics/the-kids-ar...
I have been investigating this quote from John Adams letter written on October 11, 1798, to the officers of the Massachusetts militia:
It was not until I researched the entire quote that I understand the full consequences of the statement. And I believe we are living in those very consequences today...as highlighted in Bold below...
"But should the people of America once become capable of that deep simulation towards one another, and towards foreign nations, which assumes the language of justice and moderation, while it is practicing iniquity and extravagance, and displays in the most captivating manner the charming pictures of candour, frankness, and sincerity, while it is rioting in the rapine and insolence, this country will be the most miserable habitation in the world. Because we have no government armed with the power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." https://www.quora.com/What-do-you-think-about-this-quote-by-John-Ad...
It is often said that the Constitution was based on Religion. However, in a letter from John Adams to Thomas Jefferson dated December 12, 1816: John Adams clearly states... that in his extensive readings:
"Adams dismissed works of formal religious philosophy and theology as “romances” and equates them to fairy tales."
"Once again Adams equates morality with his personal religious beliefs, which boil down to being “just and good.”
Today as we witness and experience exactly what he said "human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net."
I see no way to put our country in Reverse as immorality has taken hold of our younger generations. I wrote an article back in 2010 titled "In a Nut Shell" which outlines many of the ways progressive/socialists have implemented their long term goals. Including invading our schools and churches. As we see today, they have accomplished much of what they set out to do.
It seems we do not learn from History which shows us...
"The average length of time that a civilization lasts is 349.2 years. The median is 330 years. The civilizations that lasted the longest seem to be the Aksumite Empire which lasted 1100 years and the Vedic Period of India which lasted 1000 years." https://www.quora.com/How-long-is-the-average-duration-of-all-civil...
The question remains how do we undo this- before our time runs out?

A lot of us here & else where have been mulling this over for years & sadly to say we are seeing it come true ! Can it be reversed ? Probably not unless we see another great revival in this country , could we see a civil war of sorts hopefully not but more than likely as it stands now ! Will the constitutionalists prevail God willing & if we can keep the UN out of here along with the globalists ! Pray folks that God will bless this nation once again with out his help I fear we are doomed to go the route of other nations who have turned there back on Him !
The title should be: The Mortality of Our Constitution. The wise founding fathers have been ignored and even demonized by the leftist education system our nation has adopted. "A Republic, if you can keep it." That's how Ben Franklin stated it. For the past 2, maybe 3 generations, our children haven't been educated, they've been re-educated. Understand that the demise of the Republic began when the Declaration of Independence was sent to England, and dastardly plans to destroy the Republic began as soon as the Constitution was signed. If we are but a single generation away from losing the Republic as Ronald Reagan so eloquently put it, we've reached that point at the beginning of the 70's generation. I am amazed that the Left failed to completely take over with their continued plan for Hillary to be Obama's 3rd term. Well, so yes they blew it. But Donald Trump cannot get a 3rd term either. Right now, President Trump is the only person standing between America the Socialist and America the Free. The Left and their Socialist demons have already infiltrated deeply into the Republican Party, the Democrat Party fell a long time ago. The Mortality of Our Constitution is reaching it's tipping point and unfortunately "We the People" haven't the power to stop it.
I believe there are still many, many good citizens out there as witnessed by the massive crowds Trump gathers when he gives his speeches. There are many others like my son and I who are unable to attend due to being unable to stand or walk for any amount of time. No, we can't afford electric wheel chairs. (Welfare people can get those. We can't.)
I don't think many of these good people realize just how dire and immediate the problem is. It will take somebody like Trump to make them realize we are going down the tubes mush faster than they know.
You're right Norma, there are millions of good people out there. Out of those millions of good people, there are millions who are and have been uninformed, and apathetic. The Left has been working on this take-over, as I said since 1776, they are patient, so are the Muslims, but recently they have come alive in America, and way too many Americans are still making their decisions on emotions and not on facts and truth. You're right and yet many millions of good people will be completely blindsided when the new American Socialist government leaders are suddenly in command. We need to remember that not all Germans were Nazi's until after Hitler gained control. It's also good to know that for over 30 years, the truth about Socialism, Hitler's Nazi party, the Wiemar Republic, Communist Russia, more commonly known once as the USSR. These things haven't been taught or passed on for nearly 3 generations. If you do not know the past, something like Socialism would sound good. Free stuff sounds good to everyone, doesn't it? But there is nothing in this world that's free, except the freedom to accept Jesus Christ as one's Savior, and praise God for that. Amen
And lets not forget that if the federal reserve act had not been snuck by the people we would not have many of the problems we have today ! Essentially & sadly we have financed our own demise ! I would hope & pray that all who read this seek out & read the Miracle on Main Street by Frederick Tupper Saussy it is one of the most well done easy to understand books on constitutional money .
"All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from defects in their Constitution or Confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation."
"The nature of the coin." Excellent James, and thank you John Adams for your wisdom.
Socialism will no doubt swing this Republic into financial devastation, over loading the system with welfare, printing more money until that money becomes worthless. Here is an excerpt from Kipling's "The Gods of the Copybook Headings": In a Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all, by robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul: But though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy. And the God's of the Copybook Headings said: "If you don't work you die."
Jerome, once again your wisdom shines...
I feel so close to an idea... of how to share these thoughts and information, however, it is like the proverbial "It's on the tip of my tongue" it's just a thought away from my reach... I know it's there... I believe we are meant to share this information, I believe God is counting on us. Not that we are genius or special- just that we are awake and aware- there has to be a reason and there must be a way...
Suzie, You're too kind, my head is turned, seriously, I humbly than you! Jerome
So much knowledge- so little time... I am not sure if we are outnumbered...
Of course we are out numbered Suzie but with God we will prevail till he returns he has put us all In this position for His Glory our jobs are to listen for that still small voice amongst all the noise of the world which I admit is quite over whelming I in my later years have come to realize that this is precisely where He wants me. Do I understand all this no but I do know that it is Him who has put this insatiable desire of mine to ferret out truth & expose the lies of the enemy & I do mean the evil one his crafty hand has been behind all the evils of the world since the beginning his orchestrating behind the scenes is the only explanation for the increased insanity we have seen exploding before our eyes in recent years ! Like I said he has always been working but his time is near so his activity has & will continue to increase at this alarming rate make no mistake folks this is spiritual warfare & like it or not we are in the middle of it ! God Bless
