Missouri's 7th District, U.S. House of Representatives




Liberty Under God
Atheistic Government Schools

Congress should
  • Abolish the Department of Education
  • Return complete control of education to state and local governments.
  • Endorse and Promote the Declaration of Independence
  • Respect the "enumerated powers" doctrine

What is a "Real American?"
       What does America stand for?
       Does America mean anything?
       Or are we all just "Global Citizens" now?
       It's not your fault if you don't know what a Real American is.
       You're probably a victim of Educational Malpractice by our Government schools.
       Take this quick quiz:

In which country does the government prohibit teachers in government-run schools from teaching students that the Declaration of Independence (1776) is really true:
        a. Iran
        b. North Korea
        c. Communist China
        d. The United States
        e. All of the above 
That's correct:
The U.S. Federal Government prohibits a school teacher in a government-run school from teaching students that the Declaration of Independence really is true.
  • that there really is a God, and His existence is a "self-evident truth"
  • that our rights really are the product of the intelligent design of our Creator
              (not a gift from the government)
  • that all Americans really are obligated to conform their lives to
              "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God"
  • that one day our actions really must pass judgment with
              "the Supreme Judge of the world"
  • that all Americans should have "a firm reliance on
              the Protection of Divine Providence."
  • that Americans have a duty -- not just a right
              -- to abolish any government
              that becomes a tyranny.
That's what America's Birth Certificate -- the Declaration of Independence -- says.

None of these things can be taught as truth in a school controlled by the government of the United States.

The Federal Government says that teachers in government-operated schools paid for by your local property taxes cannot "endorse" or "promote" these ideas. Oh, sure, students can be taught that a long time ago some people believed the Declaration of Independence was true, but teachers cannot say The Declaration of Independence really is objectively true, regardless of whether any human being or any government believes it to be true, and that students should stand up and risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor in defense of those unchanging true principles. This is the only controversy about Birth Certificates that matters.

The Court requires government at all levels to maintain a neutrality between theism and non-theism which results, in practical effect, in a governmental preference of the religion of agnostic secularism. Justice Brennan argued, in his concurrence in the 1963 school prayer case, that the words "under God" could still be kept in the Pledge of Allegiance only because they "no longer have a religious purpose or meaning." Instead, according to Brennan they "may merely recognize the historical fact that our Nation was believed to have been founded 'under God." [Abington School District v. Schempp, 374 U.S. 203, 304, (1963).] This false neutrality would logically prevent an assertion by any government official, whether President or school teacher, that the Declaration of Independence—the first of the Organic Laws of the United States printed at the head of the United States Code—is in fact true when it asserts that men are endowed "by their Creator" with certain unalienable rights and when it affirms "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God," a "Supreme Judge of the world" and "Divine Providence."

Notre Dame Professor of Law Charles E. Rice has observed  (see box) that under current Court interpretation, if a student asks a teacher if the Declaration of Independence was really true when it spoke about God, "Providence," and "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God," the teacher could not say "Yes, our nation is based on these eternal truths." Presumably, no competent public school teacher (?) would say, "No, America is just one big lie." So this means that a school teacher can only say "I don't know" when asked if the Declaration of Independence is actually true.

Not a single person who signed the Constitution intended to prohibit a school teacher from telling students that the Declaration of Independence was really true when it spoke about God, "Providence," and "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God."

And we wonder why the more government-education a person has, the more likely he is to be illiterate, anti-social, peer-dependent, easily-misled, and amoral. America's Founding Fathers would see government-run education as perhaps the greatest threat to the Republic they created. Government schools are certainly the greatest threat to the idea of "Liberty Under God."

America's Founding Fathers would say most Americans today are illiterate victims of educational malpractice at the hands of the federal government.

How about you? Are you a victim of educational malpractice? Would you like to become

• an extraordinary American
• an extraordinary Christian
• an extraordinary Human Being

America was once the most prosperous and most admired nation in history.
America is now bankrupt and despised even by former admirers.
This is because the system of education that made America great has been replaced by one that makes us a third-rate nation.

It also has made you a third-rate American, a carnal Christian, and a truncated human being.

You can begin to change that here.
