America’s Founding Principles

Updated Oct 8, 2022

The Brown County League of Women Voters endorsed a policy that endorsed a belief  “that America is a nation founded on racism …”  

My response:

Humans are imperfect.  Racism as does other forms of bigotry has always existed to include at the time of our emergence as a country. Slavery has plagued human civilization, exists today, and has been perpetuated within races. The foundation of America’s system of government was influenced by Judeo-Christian principles – not “racism.”  Our founders created a system of government that could be “continually improved” in pursuit of “a more perfect union.”

The term “perfect” originates in the Bible – we are all God’s creation regardless of skin color, ethnicity, and gender. Thus the founding principles: “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, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness…”

The divisive actions from the elites (oligarchs) and those on the farther left are being influenced by Marxist philosophies. Marx credits Lucifer for his inspiration in strategies to divide people by race, age, ethnicity, gender, and economic class.

Our founders designed the first system in the history of the world that decentralized and balanced power and made “We the People” top management. The actions from the elites and far-left have been relentless in wanting to interpret the Constitution any way they see fit to align with their aims. These aims include the desire to shift power from the many to the few which has been a consistent pattern throughout history that never ends well and leads to a hell on earth – 100 million deaths in the 20th century.

The state of the union under this current administration is a case in point regarding the abuse of power and will most likely, only get worse. Higher inflation, unsecured (open) borders, energy prices (gas, electric), food prices, crime, threats of nuclear war, weaponization of the DOJ and FBI, election integrity, and framing your political opponents as enemies of the state to name a few.

    • Franklin Graham: Biden speech an attack on ‘freedom-loving Americans’ ‘This is just further dividing our nation’
    • The most effective response to the challenges is through non-violence: Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Pledge of Nonviolence: 1. Meditate daily on the teachings and life of Jesus. 
      2. Remember always that the non-violent movement seeks justice and reconciliation—not victory. 3. Walk and talk in the manner of love, for God is love. 4. Pray daily to be used by God in order that all men might be free. 5. Sacrifice personal wishes in order that all men might be free.6. Observe with both friend and foe the ordinary rules of courtesy. 
      7. Seek to perform regular service for others and for the world. 8. Refrain from the violence of fist, tongue, or heart. 9. Strive to be in good spiritual and bodily health. 
      10. Follow the directions of the movement and of the captain on a demonstration.

I got involved in the development of the Brown County Leader Network to help support a secular, non-secular, and “systemic” approach to improvements at the local level. The decision-making process is an example of an outline for identifying the scope and extent of a problem that supports a solution.

The context for my reply to the Leagues’ positions (which increase variation) is provided on my website and in my book.
