“Maryland, my (home schooling) Maryland”

by Al Benson Jr.

Home schooling is one of those things that scares the living daylights out of the Educational Establishment and the Deep State. Home schooling, and Christian education in general tend to be areas where the participants  do not always (usually) accept the Establishment version of history and/or politics.

From time to time, as they feel they can get away with it, the “change agents” in the educational bureaucracy  seek to remedy this situation by trying to find reasons to enforce new controls that will give them more power and control over home schooling, its curriculums, and its participants.

During the 1980s Rev. Paul Lindstrom, of the Church of Christian Liberty in Illinois, traveled around the country testifying in various court cases that helped and enabled parents to regain their right to home school their children which had been usurped by the Educational Establishment. By the late 1980s, home schooling was legal, in one form or another, in all the 50 united States. That fact did not, and does not, however, prevent the Establishment Education Czars from looking for any chance they can to reverse that trend–and if they can’t reverse it they can at least try to again regulate home schooling almost out of any real existence.

So it was no surprise to me when I came across an article on http://www.thefreethoughtproject.com  by Matt Agorist for March 11, 2018 that dealt with the latest attempted Establishment Educational usurpation in Maryland.

Mr. Agorist wrote: “Under the guise of preventing child abuse, lawmakers in Maryland have introduced a bill that will allow the state to intrude in the lives of innocent families, keeping tabs on them, and destroying their right to privacy. The bill, HB 1798–County Boards of Education–Home Instruction Program–Observation of Instruction and Reporting of Abuse and Neglect,  lays out some fairly ominous requirement that will persecute otherwise entirely innocent families for doing nothing other than teaching their children at home…The bill also lays out the framework for involuntary home inspections in which state agents will enter a family’s home multiple times a year–likely unannounced–and observe and inspect the homeschooling process.”

It seems as though there was a family in California that was guilty of massive child abuse and they were registered as home schoolers. So now the Education Czars in that “Sanctuary State” have automatically assumed that all home schools are probably guilty of those same abuses and need to be constantly regulated so they aren’t beating and starving their kids. It’s the same old bureaucratic “You’re guilty until you prove yourself innocent” routine that is practiced by so many government types in their efforts to gain control over other people’s lives. This is one thing politicians and bureaucrats always seek to do to justify their existence. They have to try to run everyone’s life, down to the minutest detail because, somehow, that seems to give them some sort of power trip. Being control freaks is what they live for. And it would seem that the “change agent” Educational Czars in Maryland have taken note of this instance in California and seen a real possibility in their state to assume more control over the lives of a group of people they only tolerate because the present state law forces them to.

It’s somewhat the same situation you see with all these school shootings. Some Leftist nut, usually on some exotic type of medication, kills a batch of kids and teachers in a school “gun free” zone and the bureaucratic  conclusion is that all gun owners must be potential terrorists and need to be regulated (and their weapons hopefully confiscated) as soon as possible, if not sooner!

Mr. Agorist accurately notes that: “Instead of realizing that the problem of child abuse has nothing at all to do with homeschooling,  lawmakers across the country are using this moment to demonize parents who wish to teach their children outside of the state…The audacity of the state to require that your children be inspected by them to prove that you are not guilty of child abuse is stunning and speaks to the nature of the cradle to grave mentality of the almighty controllers.” If this trend is allowed to continue it could, again, reduce the fundamental right of parents to home school their children back to the status of yet another state-regulated entity. I am sure that possibility has not been lost on the Educational Elite who seek to indoctrinate your children rather than letting you educate them.

Let’s don’t kid ourselves. This, in spite of the Establishment’s pious pleading, is not about the welfare of children–it is about who will control how they are educated and what they are taught. To educate your children is a parental right, and the Educational Elite (a major part of the Deep State Swamp) is not about to allow parents to assume this God-given responsibility  without a struggle to deprive those parents of that right.


“Jeff Secession”

by Al Benson Jr.

In looking at what Attorney General Jeff Sessions seems to be doing in regard to having certain Swamp Creatures in Washington investigated by someone from outside of the Swamp, I would have to commend him for this effort. It seems he has been doing this quietly (probably the best way) but he has been doing it.

One problem Mr. Sessions  seems to have, though, is that he seems to believe the federal government is the last absolute word on anything, and if the feds say do it, then you better do it, no questions asked. In this rash assumption he is off base.

Those who follow what I write know that one source (among several) that I use for information is https://www.infowars.com  There are probably a dozen sites that I check out on a regular basis, but I follow Infowars because they usually get it faster than most others, and they get it right. Their sources seem to be good sources–and they must be doing something right because You Tube, Facebook, and Twitter are all trying to censor their videos and articles. You don’t draw that much ire from “the big 3” unless you are hitting the nail on the head. Of course “the big 3” are trying to censor all conservative commentary they can get by with, which tells me that when you have to censor your opposition–then you don’t have anything!

There is one news commentator on Infowars that I particularly enjoy (not that the others are not good, they are) and that is David Knight. Mr. Knight is a Christian gentleman and is not ashamed to let you know that, but he is also a Christian that knows his history. In that, he is part of a (hopefully expanding) minority. We need Christian people in the journalism and broadcasting areas that know their history and haven’t just bought, hook, line, and sinker, what they were taught in those government indoctrination centers we still charitably refer to as public schools.

On his broadcast today (March 9th) referred to some comments Jeff Sessions made about secession and nullification, and it was Mr. Knight that referred to him as “Jeff Secession.” In referring to the illegal immigration conflagration now so rife in the People’s Republic of Commiefornia, Sessions said: “There is no such thing as nullification or secession.” While I understand that Sessions was referring to states needing to obey the immigration laws, his comment here was a little out of context and did not fit the situation in California (the People’s Republic referenced above).

Sessions, like most of us, was probably taught that the War of Northern Aggression and its result forever settled the secession question once and for all. It didn’t. David Knight correctly noted that our War of Independence (the first one) from Great Britain was, after all, a war of secession. Our Declaration of Independence was a secession document. In effect, we seceded from Great Britain. I realize the politically correct don’t like to think of it in those terms, but that’s what it was. Given that fact, it surprises me no end that so many people today look at “secession” as at least a dirty word, if not outright treason. It isn’t.  There must be something lacking in their  educations. How about Truth? 

Mr. Sessions’ view of the States seems to be that they are nothing more that 50 federal districts that are responsible for carrying out federal edicts at the state level and they have no recourse but to do that. Lots of us disagree with that erroneous viewpoint and if the feds come up with some really egregious agenda that harms the states and their people, then that’s where nullification comes in, or should anyway, depending on how much intestinal fortitude state officials have (and I’ve seen lots over the years that didn’t have much).

Tom Woods had an article on http://www.lewrockwell.com for March 9th that dealt with nullification. Woods noted: “Sessions is making precisely the argument that every left-liberal outfit on earth, from ThinkProgress to the Southern Poverty Law Center, was making not ten years ago, when the modern nullification movement was getting started.”

If you want to read a good little book dealing with this, pick up Ron Kennedy’s book Nullification! Why and How published by Scuppernong Press in Wake Forest, North Carolina, but you might check out http://www.KennedyTwins.com which might be quicker.

Ron noted on page iii that “The current unconstitutional system of Federal supremacy has produced the current out of control Federal government. The remainder of this book explains why nullification is an essential unalienable right and how we can reclaim that lost right.” I seriously doubt that “Jeff Secession” would agree with this, and then I wonder–what would his take on the 10th Amendment be???

It Wasn’t All About Slavery!

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Back in February of 2013 (five years ago now, doesn’t seem all that long ago) I did an article for this blog called The Lincoln/Corwin “Keep your Slaves” Amendment. It discussed the Corwin Amendment, which many of you all probably never heard of. After all, it’s not one of those things the “historians” or the media make a big deal out of because it doesn’t fit their agenda of a “saintly” Lincoln who loved all blacks, or a treasonous South. Scroll back and read that article. It’s still there. That will save me having to restate much of it here. It was a amendment to the Constitution, introduced by Thomas Corwin of Ohio that would have kept slaves in bondage in perpetuity. The sainted Mr. Lincoln was in favor of it, had no problems with it. If you find that hard to believe then go back to February 2, 2013 on this blog and read it.

Lincoln stated, in his first inaugural address, on March 4, 1861 that, “I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.”

Lincoln pretty much told us what the war (for him) was all about, and it wasn’t slavery. Even the vaunted Emancipation Proclamation” (actually a war and propaganda measure) did not free any slaves in the slave states remaining in the Union, nor did it free any slaves in the Confederate States where it had no legal authority. In fact, you could really say it was the “nothingburger” of the 19th century. So, given all these considerations, it’s hard to believe that “historians” and “journalists” in our day seem unable to come to grips with the naked truth that Lincoln declared war on the South so he could drag them back into the Union and hang on to all that tariff money the South had heretofore pumped into the national economy. The South had paid for 87% of the national economy, and if the South remained out of the Union, then the Union would tank in very short order and Lincoln had to get the South back into the Union so they could continue to “remit the extortion money” to Washington so Washington  would have that money to finance all those internal improvements they wanted to make up north! And those lucky Southern folks would get to pay for all that! Weren’t they just blessed???

Years ago (in 2007 to be exact) someone sent me an article by James W. King and Lt. Col. Thomas M. Nelson entitled The Ten Causes of the War Between the States. It was a good article and I hung onto it. It stated, in part,  “There were 10 political causes of the war–one of which was slavery–which was a scapegoat for all the differences that existed between the North and South. The Northern industrialists had wanted a war since about 1830 to get the South’s resources (land-cotton-coal-timber-minerals) for pennies on the dollar. All wars are economic and are always between centralists and decentralists. The North would have found an excuse to invade the South even if slavery had never existed..”

Frank Conner said pretty much the same thing in his book  The South Under Siege 1830-2000.

King and Nelson, in their article, listed the ten reasons for the war. After going over all their reasons, I had to conclude that they were right on target. They started off by listing the tariff; centralization vs. states rights and Christianity vs. Secular Humanism. This last one is one that few historians, or anyone else for that matter, take into account, yet it is one of the most important and critical. Of course that may be why it is so ignored today.

They listed cultural differences–another one most folks don’t ever give a thought to. We haven’t been taught to think along those lines and so most of these really critical issues just go over our heads. All we’ve been taught (or conditioned) to do is to react to lurid tales of Southern cruelty to slaves–as though the South was the sole proprietor of the slavery issue. It’s not! The North has a big slice of the proprietorship there, too, though most will never admit it, and neither will today’s spin media (excuse me, I meant “news’ media).

I already mentioned the North’s desire for control over Southern resources. Then there was slander of the South by Northern newspapers; New England’s attempts to instigate massive slave revolts in the South. Does Harper’s Ferry, Virginia come to mind here? Just about all those who financed the actions of terrorist John Brown in that gory undertaking were either New England or New York Unitarians and/or socialists. That fact was not lost on Southern folks.

Way down the list, at number 9, was slavery, and while it was an indirect cause, it was not the cause of the war–contrary to the propaganda being promulgated  in today’s classrooms and newsrooms.

I expect some will not appreciate it that I keep hammering at this issue, but when you have had 150 years of propaganda passing as history and news, you have to keep hammering to create cracks in that wall of false propaganda. Until our people begin to get it right about the War of Northern Aggression we will never get it right about any of the events that followed that war. That war was our French Revolution and we have never recovered from the results of it, nor the propaganda spun about it that conditions our thinking today.

Slavery was not the cause of that war. Secession was not treason. “Racism” was every bit as prominent in the North as in the South, maybe even moreso. It just didn’t get the media attention up there. And don’t tell me it didn’t exist up there. I grew up in the North.

With the divisions we have in this country today, culturally and otherwise, it would seem that we might be better off as two separate countries. I doubt that the North will ever totally be able to purge itself of its Unitarian/socialist world view. Left to its own devices, the South might have a chance. And, if push came to shove–much of the West would be better off siding with the South, because we have the same common enemies and the same desire to just be left alone, free from bureaucracy, to live our lives as we feel God intended.


For a little more on this subject please check out my book review of Gene Kizer Jr.s book Slavery Was Not the Cause of the War Between the States published on the Abbeville Institute’s website on February 27, 2018.

How “History” Professors View the “Civil War”

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Many who will read this are already aware of how our current crop of “historians”–so called, view the War of Northern Aggression. However, some who read it may not be all that aware, and so this is written for those unaware ones who still labor under the naive delusion that the War was fought over slavery and that communism did not rear its ugly head in America until at least the 1930s. Well, it did rear its ugly head in the 30s–but it was the 1830s, not the 1930s. By the 1930s communism was already well established here. It’s just that no one bothered to inform the American public.

I spend considerable time on the internet scrounging around for information in those areas that concern me, and one of those areas is the record of communist and socialist infiltration in this country, both in the 19th and 20th centuries.

I recently ran across an article by Andrew Zimmerman, a professor of history at George Washington University. The article was written back in July of 2013 and, at that time, Professor Zimmerman was working on an international history of the American War of Northern Aggression. Of course he didn’t call it that.

He had some interesting commentary in his article that backed up what Donnie Kennedy and I said in our book Lincoln’s Marxists.  The title of his article was The Civil War Was a Victory for Marx and Working-Class Radicals. When I read that I thought “I wonder what some of the students in high school and college history classes would think of Zimmerman’s viewpoint if it were presented to their classes in this manner.” of course, thanks to decades of government school indoctrination that might not bother all of them, but it might bother some–and that “some” might ask embarrassing questions of their “history” teachers. To counteract that possibility the War is usually presented to our students as a noble Northern crusade to eradicate slavery in that mean old, racist, South. The fact that four slave states remained in the Union is seldom touched upon.

Zimmerman couches it in this manner, quite revelatory in its own way.  He says: “For revolutionary socialists, the Civil War was a decisive victory in an even larger struggle between democracy and private property.” The communists are really high on “democracy.” It’s one of their favorite euphemisms, but they don’t mean the same thing by it you have been taught to believe it is.

Professor Roy Colby, in his book A Communese-English Dictionary notes the communist understanding of democracy as: “a collectivistic dictatorship; a totalitarian state.” It’s interesting that the Founding Fathers all had a very dim view of Democracy. They felt it eventually led to tyranny. So what Professor Zimmerman is telling us, whether he even realizes it or not, is that the Civil War was a victory for the totalitarian state against the concept of private property. You folks that have never thought of it in those terms need to start trying to wrap your minds around that concept.

And Zimmerman, again, back up what Donnie Kennedy and I noted in Lincoln’s Marxists when he says: “Marx also followed the progress of the Civil War closely because so many of his fellow exiled European revolutionaries fought in the ranks of the Union Army. Defeated and sent into American exile after a wave of European revolutions in 1848-49, many discovered the struggle against slavery a more hopeful strategy than they have previously pursued. Revolutionary socialists were thus one of the many groups that won the Civil War. For them it was a decisive victory in an even larger struggle between democracy and private property.

How many of you have ever seen the results of the War of Northern Aggression presented in this fashion? Not many I’ll wager. What Zimmerman is telling you here, if you can begin to grasp it, is that the result of the War of Northern Aggression was a victory for communism against the right of private property–and by private property I don’t just mean slaves. Anyone who has read about Sherman’s March through Georgia and South Carolina knows the utter contempt Sherman and his “bummers” had for private property–all private property. They expended lots of time and effort destroying as much as they could in their gentle ministrations to an almost prostrate Confederacy. And they were especially hard on Christian Churches. Does that tell you anything? It should!

So communism, in one form or another, has been alive and well in this country for longer than most people care to think about. Zimmerman is probably not even aware of Donnie’s and my book, but his commentary in this article backs up just about everything we said in it, only in a little less detail.

I don’t know Professor Zimmerman, but from the way he writes I would assume he is a graduate of the University of Political Correctness. And, in his honesty,  he admits to the same things Donnie and I have written about. Seems I have read a passage in Scripture about something being confirmed in the mouths of two or three witnesses.

Smart Cars–Do They Equal Agenda 21?

by Al Benson Jr.

Just yesterday or the day before, I watched a news clip on one of the alt.right sites that was talking about the auto show in Las Vegas, Nevada that is going on now.

Now I am not a mechanical person by any means. This kind of thing does not fascinate me. I can remember old Ford Model T’s (my dad had one during the Second World War because there was not anything being made but military vehicles). I remember double-winger planes. There were still some of them around when I was a kid, so I belong to the “old school” I guess. There were even a handful of characters from the Old Western days still alive when I was a kid. So modern I am not, and I am not sure, seeing some of what I see down the road, that I want to be. It seems that much of what is on the horizon will limit what you can do, where you can go, and regulate what you see and do and how far you travel.

I have written in the past about the United Nations’ Agenda 21 project that, supposedly promotes “sustainability” (population regulation) as the way to go. The UN would like to round up all of us rural or country dwellers and force us into little two-by-twice apartments with about 200 feet of living space in huge mega-cities. That way they would prevent us from doing any traveling, especially out in the country and possibly taking any trips to see anyone away from where we live that they might not approve of. They have been trying to get US cities and towns to buy into this UN concept of what amounts to a giant POW camp for the general population. Some places have seen the light and are opting out of this potential UN gulag. Let’s hope more begin to see where this is going.

Some of what the UN is promoting with Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 (the updated version) seems to be evident at this automotive show in Las Vegas. They have a new vehicle on display–a driverless auto that has no steering wheel or brakes. You don’t drive it–it drives you. It’s like a driverless taxi from what I can tell. If you have to go somewhere you call and this vehicle shows up and takes you to your destination and you pay for that with some kind of credit card of whatever, but apparently you don’t own it, you just pay when you need to use it. You can’t steer it, you can’t stop it, like I said, it drives you. As one who has traveled all over this country over the years and we went where we wanted to go, when we wanted to go, I ain’t sure I like this concept at all.

What is the idea behind this? is this supposed to start to curtail the private ownership of automobiles? It seems a step in that direction, along with the idea that people need to be herded into these UN-sponsored gulags and not allowed to go where they want to because going where they want to supposedly endangers the “sustainability” of the area you live in.

And who owns or controls these driverless cars? Some private company? The government? Whoever it is, they will have a record of where you go at all times, whether to the grocery store or to church, or to visit some friend that may have views the government does not approve of, hence you may be added to a list of “interesting” people to be watched.

I have often wondered just how much of the stuff promoted by the federal government anymore is a brainchild of the UN, with their Tower-of Babel delusions of One World government. We know that the UN is responsible for some programs that have been implanted in the public schools in this country. Do a Google search sometime and type in UNESCO and American Public Schools. You may not like what you find.

Even though Donald Trump is president, there are people in his administration that harbor a decided One World government worldview. That’s where they want to take us, whether we want to go there or not. The UN is NOT our friend–but it wants to be our keeper!

I’m not sure where these driverless cars fit into this, but they could be a major part of the program designed to keep us, not down on the farm, but rather out in the local gulag. Driverless cars is not an idea I would embrace and I hope the driving public takes a good look at this concept and gives it a huge thumbs down!

Happy New Year–We’re Not Updating Your InfoWars Connection!

by Al Benson Jr.

I just received, on 12/27. a New Year’s gift from Google. They decided not to update my InfoWars connection. All the other pages or email lists that I have listed seem to be getting updated daily except the InfoWars one. My first thought was “how petty!” But then I remembered that Google is one of those sources that had decided that the American public is better off if they only get one side of the story–the Deep State side. They don’t need to be aware of any of the rest of it–all that involves way too much thinking and decision making and our public school “educated” kids are just not up for that anymore, and unfortunately, neither are most of their parents (or grandparents).

I had read somewhere just recently that Google, Facebook, and one other Establishment outfit whose name escapes me at the moment, had all decided that they were going to start censoring what their readers got. Oh they don’t call it “censoring.” They have some fancy title for it that their executives were taught in school when the teacher had nothing better to do. But no matter what fancy handle you hang  on it, it all amounts to trying to keep as much information from their readership as possible in areas that make them queasy.

I don’t think this new omission is particularly aimed at me but it probably a policy aimed at anyone that has InfoWars listed as part of their daily reading. This forces me to go to another server to read the daily InfoWars updates, a minor inconvenience, but one I am willing to undertake, as InfoWars gives me information I seldom get from other sources and usually gives it to me ahead of what other sources do end up with it. So I will switch to the other server and keep up with the daily InfoWars commentary, and while I am there I will also check out updates for all the other pages I check daily, and there are a fair number of them.

Having two blog spots and publishing two newsletters puts me in the position of needing to keep up with current events as well as the historical material I write about. Just checking my email is good for about three hours a day, especially since the major uptick in anti-Confederate hysteria emerged a couple years ago.

So, if Google has decided that I (and many others) don’t need to be kept aware of what InfoWars publishes on a daily basis then all they do is force us onto other venues that are still willing to provide what we need.

The public today is not like the public in Nixon’s day, when all you had to get info on Watergate were the usual suspects–the three main media outlets–all controlled by the same people with the same statist worldview. Today you have the alt.right media and there is enough of that so the Establishment will never be able to shove Pandora back into the box again like they used to.

Today, the information is out there (just like “the truth is out there”) for those willing to look for it and there are sites like InfoWars, The Drudge Report, World Net Daily and a whole host of others putting out documentation that makes the Deep State absolutely cringe–and it’s about time!

So Google and Facebook and other Deep State outfits can withhold all they want, but eventually it’s going to get out there no matter what they do and they might as well get used to that.

Deo Vindice!

Conservatives Continue to Lose Because They Just Don’t Know the History

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Christians and other patriotic folks, even with Trump in office, continue to lose the battle for our culture because we just don’t know our history. And what’s worse, many of us just don’t care to learn if it goes against our preconceived notions or what we were taught in those indoctrination centers we insist on referring to as “public schools.”

I almost can’t count the times in the past ten years or so that I have gotten “alarm” bulletins from various patriotic and conservative groups that are suddenly up in arms because someone is supposedly threatening to do away with the pledge of allegiance. It seems that they literally view this pledge as being on a par with the Declaration of Independence. Folks, I’ve got a news flash for you all–it ain’t! And if it was done away with tomorrow we would not be the worse off.

According to one of these “alarm” notices that I got today (11/11/17) the Washington Post  claims the pledge is “…steeped in bigotry…origins in nativism and white nationalism.” To put it bluntly, such assertions are a crock.

I will defend our Confederate monuments. I will defend other historic statues and monuments that reflect our Christian culture. I will defend the National Anthem, written by a Christian man. I will not defend the pledge of allegiance. Why? Because I know its history and the people so frantic to defend it don’t seem to.

In our book Lincoln’s Marxists Donnie Kennedy and I have dealt with the pledge of allegiance  and its dubious “Christian” author on pages 30 and 46. If you have the book, check it out. If you haven’t bothered, maybe you should get it.

On page 30 we wrote: “For most modern day Christians it is very difficult to think of anyone being a Christian and a socialist, let alone a communist at the same time. These very same Christians will dutifully place their right hand over their heart and repeat the pledge of allegiance to the United States flag, a pledge that was written by one of America’s most notable Christian socialists, Francis Bellamy.”This man, who incidentally, was a minister in a church in Massachusetts, was the cousin of socialist Edward Bellamy. We said that: “Each time an American places his hand over his heart and recites the pledge of allegiance, he is repeating a pledge inspired by and written by a utopian socialist ideologue. Francis Bellamy’s denial of the deity of Christ, his denial of the resurrection of Christ, and his rejection of the Bible as the infallible Word of God led to his removal as a Baptist minister. Born and raised in Massachusetts, a short stay in the South  was enough to convince Bellamy  that the South was hopelessly tied to orthodox Christianity even to the point of rejecting such modern and progressive theories as evolution. Francis Bellamy believed that the defining event in American history was the Civil War, and he admitted that he desired that his pledge would reinforce everything that the arguments of Hamilton…the speeches of William H. Seward and Lincoln (and) the Civil War had accomplished.” So there is the true origin of your “pledge of allegiance”–the parting shot of “reconstruction” at the South–one nation “indivisible.” And if that is true, then your Confederate ancestors, and mine, were all traitors. So stop and reflect on that before you so eagerly recite this spurious pledge, in the name of “patriotism.”

One might  almost be led to wonder if the Washington Post’s real agenda was to get ill-informed Christians and patriots all wound up so they would expend their time and effort eagerly defending a major tenet of socialism–one nation indivisible!

How many Christians and conservatives will jump on this bandwagon and throw themselves into an effort to defend the pledge because they just don’t know the real history???  You think it ever occurs to the socialists and the One World Government crowd to get us chasing our own tails this way? Of course it does!  And we fall for it every time! They pull the same stunt on Christians with the Battle Hymn of the Republic, a thoroughly Unitarian dirge that has appeared in more Christian hymn books than I like to think about.

Until we get serious about learning our real history we will continue  to fall prey to every “hot button” issue the Leftists continue to strew in our path and waste our time and effort defending what is really socialism when we should be defending our God-given liberties.
