Happy Thanksgiving!

We truly have much to be thankful for. Though our national, state, and local economies are weak and getting weaker; Though many have lost their jobs; Though current political forces threaten the very freedoms and liberties afforded us by The Declaration of Independents, the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of the various States; Though our government, under Republican and Democrat Administrations has chosen to follow the failed interventionist strategies employed by Presidents Taft and Roosevelt that led to the great depression; Though the Federal Government has bailed out the financial and auto industries and is attempting to take over health care, all without the constitutional authority to do so; Though our troops are fighting abroad to preserve liberty, and our president can’t make up his mind whether to send needed reinforcements or not; Though our nation has turned aside from following God; Though the majority has sat idly by while a few have successfully removed our creator, the Bible, the Ten Commandments, and prayer from public schools, and nearly every semblance of God from the public square; Though each day we allow the destruction of 3,400 babies by abortion in America; Though a small minority seeks to redefine marriage to include marriages between two men or two women, a definition that has never before been applied in any culture, in any time from the creation of the world, we have much to be thankful for. God has sustained our lives, provided for us, protected us, and granted for us to live in a country where our founding fathers pledged their lives fortunes and sacred honor to establish liberty and justice for all and subsequent generations have laid down their lives to preserve those freedoms.

They are dead and gone. Now it is our turn. Will you join me in resisting tyranny and taking back our country? Will you join with me in turning back to the God of all creation who our founding fathers relied so heavily and openly for aid, assistance, and guidance at the beginning of our nation? Will you join me in establishing liberty and justice for all, including preborn children, the elderly, and the infirmed? (Visit to sign the Personhood Constitutional Petition to protect innocent human life.) Will you join me in fighting the federal takeover of our health care system which will lead to rationing, especially for the elderly? Will you join me in fighting Cap and Trade which will raise the energy cost of every American? Will you join me in fighting more federal bailout and every other unconstitutional measure? Though the tasks before us appear insurmountable, with reliance on God and tenacious persistence we can take back our nation! We can establish liberty and justice for all!

Speaking of our founding fathers open reliance on God, I’ve provided a Thanksgiving Proclamation from the Continental Congress. You can find this and other historic documents and quotes at Believe me: America’s children will not hear these truths in public school classrooms today.

Proclamation - Thanksgiving Day - 1777

Continental Congress - 11/01/1777

This is the text of the Continental Congress November 1, 1777 national Thanksgiving Day Proclamation; as printed in the Journals of Congress.
Saturday, November 1, 1777

The committee appointed to prepare a recommendation to the several states, to set apart a day of public thanksgiving, brought in a report; which was taken into consideration, and agreed to as follows:

Forasmuch as it is the indispensable duty of all men to adore the superintending providence of Almighty God; to acknowledge with gratitude their obligation to him for benefits received, and to implore such farther blessings as they stand in need of; and it having pleased him in his abundant mercy not only to continue to us the innumerable bounties of his common providence, but also smile upon us in the prosecution of a just and necessary war, for the defense and establishment of our unalienable rights and liberties; particularly in that he hath been pleased in so great a measure to prosper the means used for the support of our troops and to crown our arms with most signal success:

It is therefore recommended to the legislative or executive powers of these United States, to set apart Thursday, the 18th day of December next, for solemn thanksgiving and praise; that with one heart and one voice the good people may express the grateful feelings of their hearts, and consecrate themselves to the service of their divine benefactor; and that together with their sincere acknowledgments and offerings, they may join the penitent confession of their manifold sins, whereby they had forfeited every favor, and their humble and earnest supplication that it may please God, through the merits of Jesus Christ, mercifully to forgive and blot them out of remembrance; that it may please him graciously to afford his blessings on the governments of these states respectively, and prosper the public council of the whole; to inspire our commanders both by land and sea, and all under them, with that wisdom and fortitude which may render them fit instruments, under the providence of Almighty God, to secure for these United States the greatest of all blessings, independence and peace; that it may please him to prosper the trade and manufactures of the people and the labor of the husbandman, that our land may yield its increase; to take schools and seminaries of education, so necessary for cultivating the principles of true liberty, virtue and piety, under his nurturing hand, and to prosper the means of religion for the promotion and enlargement of that kingdom which consisteth in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.

And it is further recommended, that servile labor, and such recreation as, though at other times innocent, may be unbecoming the purpose of this appointment, be omitted on so solemn an occasion.
