Wake up the children! Ping your neighbors! Bookmark the references! Look in, all who benefit from the sustaining power of truth, soul, and sacrificed blood, that established your privilege of being American!

All are invited to review authentic American Political Philosophy in this article and by links. Learn (objectively) the historical facts of what America has declared itself to be -- and why. Learn the principles woven into our successful experiment in self governance. Learn the ring of authenticity from the authors. Sense their conviction to self-evident truths. Know it by your "inner sense," as Locke described. Feel free!

(It is good to study the authentic, repeatedly -- the better to discern and declare the differences of counterfeits.)

Studying the authentic is good. Confusing someone's elses of opinion of the authentic with the authentic itself is not.

James Madison stated: "To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea."

Indeed---but where did any of the Founders say that government could create virtue in the people, or that government was even fit to decide what "virtue" is?
