Underpinnings And Foundation
by Pete Ketcham
There are millions of conservative articles, editorials, news reports, facebook, twitter, utube, etc. dealing with the moral and constitutional Issues that are literally tearing our nation apart, but there comes a time to take a look at the basic root cause of this tremendous degenerate revolution that is sweeping across our nation.
As we know, the Constitution is the foundation of our nation, and we built our national and state governing structure on it. This document was created by men and supported by women who possessed a basic belief in the Christian faith. Their faith was their underpinning, and consequently, greatly influenced the composition of our constitution.
From the beginning of this nation this Christian underpinning influenced our subsequent laws, justice system, educational system, and in essence the complete involvement of what our nation had become. This all continued on from 1776 to the 1960’s when, historically, the “baby boomer” generation rejected the christian underpinning. They disregarded the conventional moral guidelines with their “free love”, Woodstock, and drugs. They mocked the Christian beliefs with their slogans such as “God is dead”, and plays like “Jesus Christ Super Star”, and lastly, they mocked this nation and it’s patriots.
Many of us at the time felt this generation would eventually “cut their long hair, put on a suit”, and blend back into the pre-existing culture. They did indeed “cut their hair, put on a suit”, but did not begin to blend in, as the degenerate godless nature of their youth was forever deeply embedded in their hearts.
You now see them today in the form of Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, the Clintons, and the list goes on. They have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams to transform much of this nation into the godless degenerate culture they lived as youths (and still do). They have successfully passed this godless philosophy down through two generations, and well into the third. As a result the original Christian underpinnings have come lose, and the constitutional foundation is crumbling.
Many people believe this current division in our nation today is based on political differences, but in reality it is a moral and spiritual divide which is manifesting itself as political.
In conclusion I would like to leave you with the quotes of John Adams, George Washington, and Alexis de Tocqueville.
“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
“It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.”
“It is impossible to account for the creation of the universe, without the agency of a Supreme Being. It is impossible to govern the universe without the aid of a Supreme Being. It is impossible to reason without arriving at a Supreme Being.”
“Religion is as necessary to reason, as reason is to religion. The one cannot exist without the other. A reasoning being would lose his reason in attempting to account for the great phenomena of nature, had he not a Supreme Being to refer to.”
Alexis de Tocqueville (1831)
“I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers – and it was not there . . . in her fertile fields and boundless forests and it was not there . . . in her rich mines and her vast world commerce – and it was not there . . . in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution – and it was not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.”
This quote by de Tocqueville 187 years ago, now seems to be prophetically fulfilling itself. Unless we are able to return to our christian underpinnings, and in the words of Trump, “Make America Great Again” we will indeed “cease to be great”
