Thoughts on how an ordinary citizen can make a difference by strengthening faith in God, family, and country.
Declaration of Independence
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

For about six months I have subscribed to a newsletter, IMPRIMIS, that is published by Hillsdale College. I recommend that you register for this free newsletter because its contents are usually remarks given by speakers at the college who are supportive of the Constitution. (Of course, if you subscribe to the newsletter, you will occasionally receive requests for financial support for the college.)
Hillsdale College, "pursuing truth and defending liberty," does not accept any federal or state taxpayer funds; therefore, it is free to choose its own curriculum. In its independence, it chooses to teach traditional values. The college president has a deep concern about the future of liberty in the United States. One of the reasons for his concern is the type of people who are teaching in the educational institutions nationwide.
I am impressed by colleges and universities that do not accept money from governments, and it is good to know that we have one that is supportive of the Constitution. One of its outreach programs is the Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship in Washington, DC.
I am a grandmother who is concerned about the direction our country and world are headed and what my grandchildren will inherit. I want to do my part to bring peace on earth and sanity to our insane world.
WE THE PEOPLE of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
