You may even think I am getting caught up in semantics (and I am always up for some antics), but I think that this is a major change that people of Chrsitian faith should be concerned about.
To those of you who are quick to accuse people who value personal liberty of "worshipping our founding fathers," I would caution you to not be so quick to cede power to the federal government in areas that used to be the responsibility of individuals and private charitable organizations, simply because you are "too busy getting ahead."
The smartest thing about our founding fathers?
They KNEW that power corrupts.
These "rich white guys" SHED BLOOD (and kicked the butt of the incumbent world power) in order that you would have these rights.
Do not be so quick to give those rights away.
Because at the end of the day, after all of the slurs and insults I have taken when discussing this issue, the truth still stands that there is not ONE success story we can point to where the government takes something on.
Education-billions spent, basic test scores down
Social Security-bankrupt, and the money that the current working population has contributed was squandered
Look at every area the federal government has taken on and name ONE they have done well.
THAT is what I object to.
In addition to supporting the Constitution, I support a very logical position-do not throw good money after bad.
