I wrote this in response:
I've been publishing those quotes, off and on, on my blog for years ... but I'm preaching to the choir. I rarely hear from anyone who doesn't already agree with the sentiments expressed by Jefferson.You can go back to around 1885 or 1890 to find the Progressives who decided that the only way to curb the rampant liberty of free Americans was to dumb them down, and stop teaching about the Founders ... and about the Constitution ... and about our history.And it's worked, by and large. The average American citizen has absolutely no idea about any of those things.
My friends, I won't stop talking about history, the Founders ... and about our Constitution; I truly believe it to be a document inspired by God Himself. For that matter, so did the Founders themselves.
Several wrote, after the dust had settled, that they couldn't figure out how such a historic document came from all the squabbling and politicking as took place during the Convention - unless God made it happen.
I believe He did.
