Marching in the streets is important work, but wouldn’t we have greater success if we also took control of the United States government by infiltrating and taking over one of the two national political parties, using think tanks like the Coors-funded Heritage Foundation to mold public opinion .
Most of the Founding Fathersdescribe themselves as “Deists.” Every person, of whatever religious denomination he may be, is a DEIST in the first article of his Creed. Deism, from the Latin word Deus, God, is the belief of a God, and this belief is the first article of every man’s creed.
As a champion of religious liberty, freedom of speech and freedom of the press, the “Father of the Constitution,” James Madison, deserves his own proper recognition on Constitution Day….so each year on Sept. 17, our nation honors the day delegates of the Constitutional Convention signed the U.S. Constitution in 1787.

If we take Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck and Newt Gingrich at their word, their objection to the proposed community center two blocks north of Ground Zero is that the entire area is hallowed ground, and a Muslim facility so close to the site is an insult to the victims and heroes of September 11.
