“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream.

Our Bill of Rights, America

“The Bill of Rights is the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution. It spells out Americans’ rights in relation to their government. It guarantees civil rights and liberties to the individual—like freedom of speech, press, and religion. It sets rules for due process of law and reserves all powers not delegated to the Federal Government to the people or the States. And it specifies that “the enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.””

Proponents of Socialism: Gaining Power Via the Dependency, Disintegration, Decay, & Death of People

“We must remember that nations that choose socialism suffer the slow and agonizing
death of moral and cultural decay and disintegration. Why?
Because the high priests of socialism who offer the temptations of statist programs and benefits
aren’t seeking the welfare of their people. Socialism at its heart is atheistic and has no moral compass.
Its lifeblood is power—power gained through dependency, and
once dependency is accomplished, socialism becomes the great destroyer!
It destroys:
Wealth
Dignity
Faith
Family
Freedom
We cannot allow our beloved nation to go down the path of totalitarian states.”
~ Frank Wright, PH.D.,
President & CEO – D. James Kennedy Ministries
